Last updated: March 3, 2022

1. Agreement to Terms

These Terms of Service ("Terms") represent a legally binding agreement between you and Intrepid Labs Development LLC, the owners of the Kumo trademark and intellectual property.

This agreement contains the terms and conditions governing your use of and access to: (1) our website at www.withkumo.com, including any subdomains thereof, and any other websites to which these Terms are posted (collectively, the "Site"); and (2) any products, services, and applications made available through the Site (the "Services"). The Site and Services together are hereinafter referred to as the "Kumo Platform."

Please read these Terms carefully. By using or accessing the Kumo Platform, you represent that you have read, understand, and agree to be bound by these Terms.

If you disagree with any part of the Terms, then you do not have permission to access or use the Kumo Platform.

2. The Kumo Platform

The Kumo Platform aggregates business listings from online marketplaces, brokerage websites, email lists, and other sources into one unified platform.
The Kumo Platform provides its Services for persons who buy, sell, and broker businesses. For the purposes of this Agreement, all services provided by Kumo through the Kumo Platform shall be referred to collectively as “Kumo Services."
In the future, the Kumo Platform may offer additional services for business owners, potential acquirers, and brokers. The Kumo Services is a term meant to encapsulate all present and future services offered on the Kumo Platform.
Business buyers, sellers, and brokers who sign up for the Kumo Platform (”Users”) shall create a User account on the Site, and activate a Subscription in order to access the Kumo Platform. Each person may only create one User account, and Kumo reserves the right to merge or delete duplicate accounts.

3. Modification of these Terms

Kumo reserves the right to modify these Terms or any information referenced in the hyperlinks from this Agreement at any time in accordance with this provision. If we make changes to these Terms, we will post the revised Terms on the Site and update the “Last Updated” date at the top of these Terms, and such modifications shall become effective upon posting. Continued use of the Kumo Platform or Services after any such changes are posted shall constitute your consent to such changes.
In the event that the modifications materially alter your rights or obligations hereunder, we will make reasonable efforts to notify you of the change. For example, we may send a message to your email address or generate a pop-up or similar notification when you access the Service for the first time after such material changes are made. Your continued use of the Service after the revised Terms of Service has been effective indicates that you have read, understood, and agreed to the current version of these Terms.

4. Eligibility

The Kumo Platform may only be used by individuals who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. The Kumo Platform is not available to children (persons under the age of 18). By becoming a User, you represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years old and that you have the right, authority and capacity to enter into and abide by the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
You may not allow other persons to use your User account, and you agree that you are the sole authorized user of your account. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of your Kumo Account credentials and may not disclose your credentials to any third party.

5. Fees and Payment

5.1 Subscription Fees. Users may be required to pay a subscription fee to access some or all parts of the Kumo Platform. Kumo will clearly communicate the current subscription offerings on the Kumo Pricing Page, as well as provide clear descriptions of the offerings and pricing during the registration process. Users may also find details of their current subscription, as well as details of their upcoming and past charges in their User Profile.
5.2 Changes to Subscription Fees.
Kumo reserves the right to change the fee of any existing subscription plan. If there are any subscription fee changes that may impact any existing Users, Kumo will clearly communicate such changes by publishing the changes to the Kumo Pricing Page, the Kumo FAQ, and by providing a notice to the User at the email associated with their account within a reasonable timeframe to allow Users to opt out of any changes to their existing subscription.
5.3 Refunds Eligibility. Users may request a refund by emailing billing@withkumo.com. Based on your subscription plan, you may be eligible for a refund if:
For monthly subscriptions: (1) A full refund, if it has been less than 3 business days since your most recent monthly subscription charge, (2) A partial refund, if it has been more than 3 business days since your most recently monthly subscription charge. The partial refund will be calculated using the following formula: amount of most recent subscription * (# of days remaining on subscription / 30 days). For example, if it has been 15 days since your subscription payment, and you paid $30 for a monthly subscription, your partial refund would be $15: $30 * (15 days passed / 30 days in monthly subscription).
For yearly subscriptions: (1) A full refund, if it has been less than 14 business days since your most recent monthly subscription charge, (2) A partial refund, if it has been more than 14 business days since your most recently monthly subscription charge. The partial refund will be calculated using the following formula: amount of most recent subscription * (# of days remaining on subscription / 360 days). For example, if it has been 15 days since your subscription payment, and you paid $288 for a yearly subscription, your partial refund would be $276: $288 * (345 days remaining / 360 days in yearly subscription).
5.4 Facilitation of Charges. All Charges are facilitated through a third-party payment processing service, Stripe. You can read about how Stripe handles your data privacy at https://stripe.com/privacy. Kumo may replace its third-party payment processing services without notice to you.
5.5 Taxes. Unless otherwise stated, our Charges do not include any taxes, levies, or similar governmental assessments, including value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes assessable by any local, state, provincial or foreign jurisdiction (collectively, “Taxes”).

This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of California, United States of America, without regard to choice of law principles. This choice of law provision is only intended to specify the use of California law to interpret this Agreement and is not intended to create any other substantive right to non- Californians to assert claims under California law whether by statute, common law, or otherwise. If any provision of this Agreement is or becomes invalid or non- binding, the parties shall remain bound by all other provisions of this Agreement. In that event, the parties shall replace the invalid or non-binding provision with provisions that are valid and binding and that have, to the greatest extent possible, a similar effect as the invalid or non-binding provision, given the contents and purpose of this Agreement.

The words “include”, “includes” and “including” are deemed to be followed by the words “without limitation”. A party’s failure to act with respect to a breach by the other party does not constitute a waiver of the party’s right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. This Agreement sets forth the entire understanding and agreement between you and Kumo with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all previous understandings and agreements between the parties, whether oral or written.
