LaserShow Terms of Service
Thank you for using LaserShow.
Please read these Terms carefully. By using LaserShow or signing up for an account, you’re agreeing to these Terms, which will result in a legal agreement between you and Science4Data (“Agreement”). Let’s start with some definitions. Science4Data (“Science4Data,” “we,” or “us”) is a video generation platform (the “App”). The App is offered through our website, https://lasershow.video and any other website or mobile application owned, operated or controlled by us (we’ll collectively refer to these as the “LaserShow Site,” together with the App, the “Service”). Science4Data is a New Jersey limited liability company. Science4Data has employees, independent contractors, and representatives (“our Team”). As a customer of the Service or a representative of an entity that’s a customer of the Service, you’re a “Member” according to this Agreement (or “you”).
Some features of the Service are offered as add-ons to your LaserShow account (“Add-ons”). Unless expressly stated otherwise, these Terms apply to the use of Add-ons. Some Add-ons are intended for particular use cases and may also have additional terms or restrictions (“Additional Terms”). Also note that a Member’s account may have access to unique features of the Service based on their historic usage or status.
If you download the App through the Apple App Store, Google Play or other app store or distribution platform (“App Provider”), you acknowledge and agree that: (i) these Terms are between us, and not with the App Provider, and that we are responsible for the Service, not the App Provider; (ii) the App Provider has no obligation to furnish maintenance and support services or handle any warranty claims; (iii) the App Provider is not responsible for addressing any claims you or any third party have relating to the App; and (iv) the App Provider is a third party beneficiary of these Terms as related to your use of the App, and the App Provider will have the right to enforce these Terms as related to your use of the App against you.
If you have any questions about our Terms, feel free to contact us.
In order to use the Service, you must:
- be at least eighteen (18) years old and able to enter into contracts;
- complete the account registration process;
- agree to these Terms;
- provide true, complete, and up-to-date contact and billing information;
- not be based in Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Syria, or any other territory that is subject to a U.S. government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. government as a “terrorist-supporting” country; and
- not be listed on any U.S. government list of prohibited or restricted persons.
By using the Service, you represent and warrant that you meet all the requirements listed above, and that you won’t use the Service in a way that violates any laws or regulations. Note that by representing and warranting, you are making a legally enforceable promise.
Science4Data may refuse service, close accounts of any Members, and change eligibility requirements at any time.
When you sign up for an account and agree to these Terms, the Agreement between you and Science4Data is formed, and the term of the Agreement (the “Term”) will begin. The Term will continue for as long as you have a Science4Data account or until you or we terminate the Agreement in accordance with these Terms, whichever happens first. If you sign up for an account on behalf of a company or other entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to accept these Terms and enter into the Agreement on its behalf.
- Closing Your Account
You or Science4Data may terminate the Agreement at any time and for any reason by terminating your Science4Data account or giving notice to the other party. We may suspend the Service to you at any time, with or without cause. If we terminate your account without cause, and your account is a paid account, we’ll refund a prorated portion of your subscription. We won’t refund or reimburse you in any other situation, including if your account is suspended or terminated for cause, such as for a breach or violation of the Agreement. If your account is inactive for 24 or more months, we may terminate your account and you won’t be entitled to a refund. Once your account is terminated, you acknowledge and agree that we may permanently delete your account and all the data associated with it.
We may change any of the Terms by posting revised Terms on our LaserShow website. Unless you terminate your account, the new Terms will be effective immediately upon posting and apply to any continued or new use of the Service. We may change the Service, Add-ons, or any features of the Service at any time, and we may discontinue the Service, Add-ons, or any features of the Service at any time.
- Account and Password
You’re responsible for keeping your account name and password confidential. You’re also responsible for any account that you have access to and any activity occurring in such account (other than activity that Science4Data is directly responsible for that isn’t performed in accordance with your instructions), whether or not you authorized that activity. You’ll immediately notify us of any unauthorized access or use of your accounts. We’re not responsible for any losses due to stolen or hacked passwords. We don’t have access to your current password, and for security reasons, we may only provide you with instructions on how to reset your password. We have the right to update any of your contact information in your account for billing purposes. In addition, you represent and warrant that all information you provide to us when you establish an account, and when you access and use the Service, is and will remain complete and accurate. We may contact you, or any authorized user, or login added to your account, based on the information provided in your account.
- Account Disputes
We don’t know the inner workings of your organization or the nature of your personal relationships. You won’t request access to or information about an account that’s not yours, and you’ll resolve any account-related disputes directly with the other party. We decide who owns an account based on a number of factors, including the content in that account, and the contact and profile information listed for that account. In cases where differing contact and profile information is present or we are unable to reasonably determine ownership, we’ll require you to resolve the matter through proper channels outside of Science4Data.
When a dispute is identified, we may suspend any account associated with the dispute, including disabling login and updates to media reporting, to protect the security and privacy of the data held within the account until the dispute is properly resolved.
- Paid Monthly Plans
Once you select your Monthly Plan, Science4Data will never automatically upgrade or downgrade your Monthly Plan. When you sign up for a Monthly Plan, you agree to monthly recurring billing, starting on the date you sign up. Billing occurs on the same day each month, based on the date that you started your Monthly Plan. Payments are due for any month on the same or closest date to the day you made your first monthly payment (the “Pay Date”). If any part of a month is included in the Term, then payment is required for the full month. Billing for Monthly Plans may be paused, and you may choose to close your account permanently at any time.
- Paid Annual Plans
Once you select your Annual Plan, Science4Data will never automatically upgrade or downgrade your Annual Plan. When you sign up for a Annual Plan, you agree to annual recurring billing, starting on the date you sign up. Billing occurs on the same day each year, based on the date that you started your Annual Plan. Billing for Annual Plans may be paused, and you may choose to close your account permanently at any time.
- Free Plans
Science4Data may occasionally offer some capabilities for free. If you use the Service under the free plan (“Free Plan”) and you want to go over the Free Plan limits, you’ll be required to upgrade your account to, and select and pay for, a Monthly Plan or Annual Plan, as described above. If you go over the limits for the Free Plan, you’ll no longer qualify for the Free Plan, even if your future usage numbers are within the limits of the Free Plan.
- Debit and Credit Cards
As long as you’re a Member with a Monthly Plan, Annual Plan or otherwise have an outstanding balance with us, you’ll provide us with valid debit or credit card (“card”) information and authorize us to deduct your charges against that card. You’ll replace the information for any card that expires with information for a valid one. If your card is automatically replaced with a new card by a payment processor, you acknowledge and agree that we’re authorized to deduct any charges on your account against the new card. Anyone using a card represents and warrants that they are authorized to use that card, and that any and all charges may be billed to that card and won’t be rejected. If we’re unable to process your card order, we’ll try to contact you by email and may suspend your account until your payment can be processed.
We’ll give you a refund for prepaid months if we stop providing the Service and terminate your account without cause. You won’t be entitled to a refund or credit from us under any other circumstances. We may, at our sole discretion, offer a refund, discount or credit.
- Charges for Add-Ons
If you use an Add-on that has a charge, then you’ll be billed that additional amount with each billing cycle for as long as the Add-on is active. Your billing cycle for an Add-on may differ from your billing cycle for your Monthly Plan or other features of the Service, and certain Add-ons may require upfront payment for their entire billing cycle.
- Billing Changes
We may change our fees, including our charges for Monthly Plans and Annual Plans, at any time by posting a new pricing structure to our LaserShow Site or in your account and/or sending you a notification by email. Quoted fees don’t include sales or other transaction-based taxes of any kind.
- Customization Work
In some cases, Science4Data solutions will require customization. Science4Data may choose to include these customizations as part of the Service or will create a Statement of Work (“SOW”) for paid custom work. In the latter case, Customer shall compensate Science4Data for the Science4Data Solutions at the rates and fees set forth in the Customer Agreement (such compensation, the “Fees”). Unless otherwise specified, payments are due upon receipt of invoice. Without limiting any other remedies, payments received later than thirty (30) days after the invoice date shall bear interest measured from the date such payment was due until the date such payment is made, at the lesser of one and one-half percent (1½ %) per month and the maximum rate permitted by law.
Fees do not include travel, accommodation, or living and out of pocket expenses incurred by Science4Data while delivering the Science4Data Solutions. However, no such expenses shall be billed to Customer without the prior express written consent of Customer.
- Feedback and Proprietary Rights
We own all proprietary rights in the Service, including, but not limited to, patents, trademarks, service marks, trade secrets, copyrights, and other intellectual property rights.
You shall retain all right, title, and interest in and to the material, content, data, and information (including your personal information and the personal information of others) you submit to Science4Data in the course of using the Service or which Science4Data otherwise retrieves or accesses at your direction or with your permission (collectively, your “Content”). Subject to these Terms, you grant us permission to use or disclose your Content (including any personal information therein) only as necessary to provide the Service to you and/or as otherwise permitted by these Terms. You represent and warrant that: (i) you own or have otherwise obtained all necessary rights, releases, and permissions to submit all your Content to the Service and to grant the rights granted to us in these Terms and (ii) your Content and its submission and use as you authorize in these Terms will not violate (1) any applicable law, (2) any third-party intellectual property, privacy, publicity, or other rights, or (3) any of your or third-party policies or terms governing your Content.
You may provide or we may ask you to provide suggestions, comments, input or other feedback (“Feedback”) regarding the Service. If you provide us with any Feedback, then you grant us a royalty-free, non-exclusive, worldwide, sublicensable, and transferable license to use, reproduce, publicly display, distribute, modify, and publicly perform the Feedback as we see fit. Any Feedback you choose to provide is given entirely voluntarily. You understand that you will not receive any compensation for your Feedback, and that we may use any Feedback you provide to improve the Service or to develop new features and services.
- Right to Review Content and Usage
We may view, copy, and internally distribute Content from your account to create algorithms and programs (“Tools”) that help us spot problem accounts and improve the Service. We use these Tools to see whether Members violate these Terms or laws and to study data internally to make the Service smarter and create better experiences for Members and their clients.
Rules and Abuse
- General Rules
By agreeing to these Terms, you promise to follow these rules:
- You will not create or share videos generated by LaserShow in any way inconsistent with general copyright and intellectual property laws.
We also may suspend or terminate your account if we determine, in our sole discretion, that you are either:
- an organization that has publicly stated or acknowledged that its goals, objectives, positions, or founding tenets include statements or principles that could be reasonably perceived to advocate, encourage, or sponsor Hateful Content or A Threat of Physical Harm;
- a person that has publicly made a comment or statement, or otherwise publicly made known a position, including by membership in an organization as discussed above, that could be reasonably perceived as Hateful Content or A Threat of Physical Harm; or
- a person or organization that has acted in such a way as could be reasonably perceived to support, condone, encourage, or represent Hateful Content or A Threat of Physical Harm.
Science4Data also does not allow the distribution of Content that is, in our sole discretion, materially false, inaccurate, or misleading in a way that could deceive or confuse others about important events, topics, or circumstances.
If you violate any of these rules, then we may issue a warning to, suspend, or terminate your account.
- Reporting Abuse
If you think anyone is violating any of these Terms, please notify us immediately. If you think anyone has posted material that violates any protected marks or copyrights, then you can notify us at the address provided in our Copyright and Trademark Policy.
- Compliance with Laws
You represent and warrant that your use of the Service will comply with all applicable laws and regulations. You’re responsible for determining whether the Service is suitable for you to use in light of your obligations under any regulations like HIPAA, GLB, Data Protection Laws, United States export control laws and regulations and economic sanctions laws and regulations (“U.S. Export Control Laws and Regulations”), or other applicable laws. If you’re subject to regulations (like HIPAA) and you use the Service, then we won’t be liable if the Service doesn’t meet those requirements. You may not use the Service for any unlawful or discriminatory activities, including acts prohibited by the Federal Trade Commission Act, Fair Credit Reporting Act, Equal Credit Opportunity Act, Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, or any other applicable laws.
If you collect any personal information pertaining to a minor and store such information within your Science4Data account, you represent and warrant that you have obtained valid consent for such activities according to the applicable laws of the jurisdiction in which the minor lives.
You agree, represent, and warrant to Science4Data that:
- You will get and maintain all necessary permissions and valid consents required to lawfully transfer data to Science4Data and to enable such data to be lawfully collected, processed, and shared by Science4Data for the purposes of providing the Service or as otherwise directed by you.
- You will comply with all laws and regulations applicable to the media data collected through the Service.
You agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from any losses, including all legal fees and expenses, that result from your breach of this Section 20.
- Export Controls
The software that supports the App (the “Software”) is subject to U.S. Export Control Laws and Regulations. Export laws are set up by the U.S. government to keep certain goods and services from reaching other countries, usually because of security concerns or trade agreements. None of the Software may be downloaded or otherwise exported or re-exported in violation of U.S. Export Control Laws and Regulations and any other applicable export laws and regulations (collectively, “Export Control Laws”). Therefore, you agree that you won’t, directly or indirectly through a third party, allow the Software to be accessed or generated from within, or distributed or sent to, any prohibited or embargoed country as mentioned in any Export Control Laws. In addition, you certify that neither you nor any principals, officers, directors, or any person or entity you know to be directly involved with the use of the Service is designated on any U.S. government list of prohibited or restricted persons.
It’s important to note that this Section 21 isn’t meant to provide a comprehensive summary of the Export Control Laws that govern Science4Data, the Service, or the Software. You’re downloading and using the Software at your own risk, and it’s your responsibility to consult with a legal advisor to make sure your use of the Service and the Software complies with applicable laws.
- Limitation of Liability
To the maximum extent permitted by law, you acknowledge and agree that (i) you assume full responsibility for any loss that results from your use of the Service, including any downloads from the Science4Data Site; (ii) we and our Team won’t be liable for any indirect, punitive, special, or consequential damages under any circumstances, even if they’re based on negligence or we’ve been advised of the possibility of those damages; and (iii) in any calendar month, our total liability to you arising under or in connection with the Agreement—whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise—will be no more than what you paid us for the Service the preceding month. This is further described in the Science4Data Master License Agreement (MLA).
For the avoidance of doubt, in no instance will we or our Team be liable for any losses or damages you suffer if you use the Service in violation of these Terms, regardless of whether we terminate or suspend your account due to such violation.
- No Warranties
To the maximum extent permitted by law, we provide the Service as-is. This means that, except as expressly stated in these Terms, we don’t provide warranties, conditions, or undertakings of any kind in relation to the Service, either express or implied. This includes, but isn’t limited to, warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, which are, to the fullest extent permitted by law, excluded from the Agreement. Since Members use the Service for a variety of reasons, we can’t guarantee that it’ll meet your specific needs.
You agree to indemnify and hold us and our Team harmless from any losses, including legal fees and expenses that directly or indirectly result from any claims you make that aren’t allowed under these Terms due to a “Limitation of Liability” or other provision. (Indemnity is an agreement to compensate someone for a loss.) You also agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from any losses, including legal fees and expenses, that directly or indirectly result from (i) your Content, (ii) your use of the Service, (iii) your violation of any laws or regulations, (iv) third-party claims that you or someone using your password did something that, if true, would violate any of these Terms, (v) any misrepresentations made by you, or (vi) a breach of any representations or warranties you’ve made to us.
- Equitable Relief
Your violation of these Terms may cause irreparable harm to us and our Team. Therefore, we have the right to seek injunctive relief or other equitable relief if you violate these Terms (meaning we may request a court order to stop you).
- Subpoena Fees
If we have to provide information in response to a subpoena, court order, or other legal, governmental, or regulatory inquiry related to your account, then we may charge you for our costs. These fees may include attorney and employee time spent retrieving the records, preparing documents, and participating in a deposition.
We and our Team aren’t responsible for the behavior of any third parties, agencies, linked websites, or other Members, including third-party applications, products, or services for use in connection with the Service (each, a “Third-Party Integration”). Your use of any Third-Party Integration and rights with respect to such Third-Party Integration are solely between you and the applicable third party. We are not responsible for the privacy, security or integrity of any Third-Party Integration or the practices and policies of any Third-Party Integration. We make no warranties of any kind and assume no liability of any kind for your use of any Third-Party Integration.
And Some Other Items
- Notice to U.S. Government End Users
The Software and the Science4Data Site, including all documentation, are “Commercial Items,” as that term is defined at 48 C.F.R. §2.101, and consist of “Commercial Computer Software” and “Commercial Computer Software Documentation.” The Commercial Computer Software and Commercial Computer Software Documentation are licensed to U.S. government end users:
- only as Commercial Items,
- with the same rights as all other end users, and
- according to the Terms.
Published and unpublished rights are reserved under the copyright laws of the United States. The manufacturer is Science4Data DBA Science4Data, 37 Main St., Suite 1063, Sparta, NJ 07871.
You may not assign any of your rights under this Agreement to anyone else. We may assign our rights to any other individual or entity at our discretion.
- Choice of Law
The State of New Jersey’s laws will apply to any dispute related to the Agreement or the Service. You acknowledge and agree that any dispute related to the Agreement or the Service itself will be decided by the state or federal courts in New Jersey, and each party consents to personal jurisdiction in those courts.
- Force Majeure
We won’t be held liable for any delays or failure in performance of any part of the Service, from any cause beyond our control. This includes, but is not limited to, acts of god, changes to law or regulations, embargoes, war, terrorist acts, riots, fires, earthquakes, strikes, power blackouts, volcanic action, COVID or other virus related zombie apocalypse, nuclear accidents, floods, unusually severe weather conditions, and acts of hackers, or third-party internet service providers.
Even if this Agreement is terminated, the following sections will continue to apply: Feedback and Proprietary Rights, Compliance with Laws, Limitation of Liability, No Warranties, Indemnity, Choice of Law, Severability, and Entire Agreement.
If it turns out that a section of these Terms isn’t enforceable, then that section will be removed or edited as little as required, and the rest of the Agreement will still be valid.
The headers and sidebar text are provided only to make these Terms easier to read and understand. The fact that we wrote these Terms won’t affect the way the Agreement is interpreted.
If we don’t immediately take action on a violation of these Terms, we’re not giving up any rights under the Terms, and we may still take action at some point.
- No Changes in Terms at Request of Member
Because we have so many Members, we can’t change these Terms for any one Member or group.
- Further Actions
You’ll provide all documents and take any actions necessary to meet your obligations under these Terms.
- Notification of Security Incident
If we become aware of a security incident related to our systems or databases that contain personal information, we’ll notify you if required by law. In that event, we’ll also provide you with information about that incident so that you can evaluate the consequences to you and any legal or regulatory requirements that may apply to you, unless we’re prevented from doing so by legal, security or confidentiality obligations. Notifying you of a security incident or cooperating with you to respond to one will not be deemed an acknowledgement or assumption of any liability or fault of Science4Data for such incident.
- Beta Services
From time to time, (i) we may invite you to try products or features related to our Service that are not generally available to all of our Members or the public or (ii) we may release products or features related to our Service that are identified in the App as beta, preview, pilot, limited release, or by a similar designation (collectively, “Beta Services”). Beta Services may be provided for evaluation or testing purposes only, and, therefore, may contain bugs or errors, and may not be as reliable as other features of the Service. We may discontinue Beta Services at any time in our sole discretion, and we may decide not to make Beta Services generally available. For the avoidance of doubt, Beta Services are a part of the Service, and, therefore, are subject to the terms of this Agreement, including, without limitation, Sections 22 and 23.
Any notice to you will be effective when we send it to the last email or physical address you gave us or when posted on our LaserShow Site. Any notice to us will be effective when delivered to us along with a copy to our legal counsel: Attn. Legal Department, Science4Data, 37 Main St., Suite 1063, Sparta, NJ 07871, or any addresses as we may later post on the LaserShow Site.
- Entire Agreement
These Terms and any Additional Terms you’ve agreed to by enabling any Add-ons make up the entire agreement between us in relation to its subject matter and supersede all prior agreements, representations, and understandings. Any Additional Terms will be considered incorporated into the Agreement when you activate the corresponding Add-on.
Where there’s a conflict between these Terms and the Additional Terms, the Additional Terms will control to the extent of the conflict.
Impressive! You’ve reached the end.
Thanks for taking the time to learn about Science4Data’s policies.
