Last updated: June 4, 2021


Acceptance of the Terms of Use


These terms of use are entered into by and between you and Carousel Technologies, Inc. ("Company," "we," or "us"). The following terms and conditions, together with any documents they expressly incorporate by reference (collectively, "Terms of Use") govern your access to and use of applications or websites we control, including any content, functionality, and services offered on or through the “Carousel:SEL for All” app and the “joincarousel.io” website (the "Sites” or Apps").


Please read the Terms of Use carefully before you start to use the Apps. By using the Apps, you accept and agree to be bound and abide by these Terms of Use and our Privacy Notice, found at https://www.joincarousel.io/privacy-policy, incorporated herein by reference. If you do not want to agree to these Terms of Use or the Privacy Notice, you must not access or use the Apps. 


The Apps are offered and available to users of all ages. However, to use the Apps you must be of the legal age to consent to the collection and processing of your data under the applicable laws where you live. If you are not of the legal age to consent to the collection and processing of your personal data, we must receive parental or school consent for you to use the Apps and agree to these Terms of Use before you may use our Apps. If you are not of legal age to give consent and you do not get appropriate consent, you may not use the Apps. To learn more about giving consent, please see our Privacy Notice and Children’s Privacy Notice.


Changes to the Terms of Use


We may revise and update these Terms of Use from time to time in our sole discretion. All changes are effective immediately when we post them, and apply to all access to and use of the Apps thereafter. 

Your continued use of the Apps following the posting of revised Terms of Use means that you accept and agree to the changes. You are expected to check this page each time you access the Apps so you are aware of any changes, as they are binding on you. 


Accessing the Apps and Account Security


We reserve the right to withdraw or amend the Apps, and any service or material we provide on the Apps, in our sole discretion without notice. We will not be liable if for any reason all or any part of the Apps is unavailable at any time or for any period. From time to time, we may restrict access to some parts of the Apps, or the entire Apps, to users, including registered users.


You are responsible for both:


  • Making all arrangements necessary for you to have access to the Apps.


  • Ensuring that all persons who access the Apps are aware of these Terms of Use and comply with them.


To access the Apps or some of the resources it offers, you may be asked to provide certain registration details or other information. It is a condition of your use of the Apps that all the information you provide on the Apps is correct, current, and complete. You agree that all information you provide to register with this Apps or otherwise, including, but not limited to, through the use of any interactive features on the Apps, is governed by our Privacy Notice and you consent to all actions we take with respect to your information consistent with our Privacy Notice.


If you choose, or are provided with, a user name, password, or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, you must treat such information as confidential, and you must not disclose it to any other person or entity. You also acknowledge that your account is personal to you and agree not to provide any other person with access to the Apps or portions of it using your user name, password, or other security information. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized access to or use of your user name or password or any other breach of security. 


We have the right to disable any user name, password, or other identifier, whether chosen by you or provided by us, at any time in our sole discretion for any or no reason, including if, in our opinion, you have violated any provision of these Terms of Use.


Intellectual Property Rights


The Apps and its entire contents, features, and functionality (including but not limited to all information, software, text, displays, images, video, and audio, and the design, selection, and arrangement thereof) are owned by the Company, its licensors, or other providers of such material and are protected by United States and international copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, and other intellectual property or proprietary rights laws.

These Terms of Use permit you to use the Apps for your personal, non-commercial use only. You must not reproduce, distribute, modify, create derivative works of, publicly display, publicly perform, republish, download, store, or transmit any of the material on our Apps, except as follows:

You must not:


  • Modify copies of any materials from the Apps.


  • Delete or alter any copyright, trademark, or other proprietary rights notices from copies of materials from the Apps.


You must not access or use for any commercial purposes any part of the Apps or any services or materials available through the Apps. 


If you print, copy, modify, download, or otherwise use or provide any other person with access to any part of the Apps in breach of the Terms of Use, your right to use the Apps will stop immediately and you must, at our option, return or destroy any copies of the materials you have made. No right, title, or interest in or to the Apps or any content on the Apps is transferred to you, and all rights not expressly granted are reserved by the Company. Any use of the Apps not expressly permitted by these Terms of Use is a breach of these Terms of Use and may violate copyright, trademark, and other laws.

All User Contributions must comply with the Content Standards set out in these Terms of Use.

Any User Contribution you post to the site will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary.

Monitoring and Enforcement; Termination


We have the right to:


  • Remove or refuse to post any User Contributions for any or no reason in our sole discretion.


  • Take any action with respect to any User Contribution that we deem necessary or appropriate in our sole discretion, including if we believe that such User Contribution violates the Terms of Use, including the Content Standards, infringes any intellectual property right or other right of any person or entity, threatens the personal safety of users of the Apps or the public, or could create liability for the Company.


  • Disclose your identity or other information about you to any third party who claims that material posted by you violates their rights, including their intellectual property rights or their right to privacy.


  • Take appropriate legal action, including without limitation, referral to law enforcement, for any illegal or unauthorized use of the Apps.

Without limiting the foregoing, we have the right to cooperate fully with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity or other information of anyone posting any materials on or through the Apps. YOU WAIVE AND HOLD HARMLESS THE COMPANY AND ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSEES, AND SERVICE PROVIDERS FROM ANY CLAIMS RESULTING FROM ANY ACTION TAKEN BY ANY OF THE FOREGOING PARTIES DURING, OR TAKEN AS A CONSEQUENCE OF, INVESTIGATIONS BY EITHER SUCH PARTIES OR LAW ENFORCEMENT AUTHORITIES.


However, we do not undertake to review all material before it is posted on the Apps, and cannot ensure prompt removal of objectionable material after it has been posted. Accordingly, we assume no liability for any action or inaction regarding transmissions, communications, or content provided by any user or third party. We have no liability or responsibility to anyone for performance or nonperformance of the activities described in this section.

Confidentiality


If you are a teacher, advocate, or other person who may review, grade, or otherwise access the information of other users on the Apps (an “Administrator”), you may not, under any circumstances, release to any person information about a user unless your position specifically requires you to do so. You must refer any requests for information about a user to your supervisor. You must not release any information about a user unless authorized to do so by your supervisor. If you do not have a supervisor, you must refer any requests for information about a user to us.  


As an Administrator, you must avoid viewing, transferring, or otherwise acquiring information about users that you do not need to do for your job, nor should you disclose, release information about users that you have learned while performing your job.

You must comply with any additional restriction on information sharing and/or additional rules about privacy and confidentiality set by your employer or as advised by us.  


Children


We consider you to be a child if you are not of the legal age to consent to the collection and processing of Personal Data under applicable laws where you live (a “Child” or “Children”). We obtain parental consent before we knowingly collect Personal Data from Children. Therefore, we only collect Personal Data through the Services from a Child, where that Child’s Administrator has agreed to obtain parental consent for that Child to use the Services and disclose Personal Data to us or where the parent or legal guardian of a Child has consented for the Child to use the Services. 


If you are a parent or guardian of a Child, you must consent to these Terms of Use as a requirement for your Child to use the Services.
