Terms of Use

Updated: April 2021

My Halo End User License Agreement

This agreement, (“Terms of Use”) between My Halo Life Limited (“My Halo”, “we”, “us” or “our”) and you governs your use of the Services (as defined below). We reserve the right to modify, supplement or amend these terms of use from time to time at our discretion. Each time you access the Services you agree to these terms and conditions as they may be amended from time to time.

The Services

We provide a comprehensive end of life planning resource service which helps users to plan and manage their end of life (“services“). It is currently free for you to register with us, set up your profile and use our website and services to help you with your planning.

We do not control the material submitted to the website by users.

We comply with all applicable laws in the European Union and the United Kingdom, (“jurisdiction”). If you are accessing the website from outside the jurisdiction, please be aware that My Halo has not taken affirmative action to comply with local laws which may be applicable to you as a consumer. To the fullest extent permitted by law, we exclude our liability for any loss or damage incurred as a result of your reliance on consumer laws outside the jurisdiction.

Registration

In order to access and use certain services and functionality offered through the website, you must register with and open an account with us. In doing so, please make sure that all the details that you give to us are accurate, complete and are kept current and up to date whilst you continue to use the website and the services. You must contact us promptly to inform us of all changes to this information.

Usernames And Passwords

Upon registration for an account with us, you will be asked to create a username and password. You must always keep your username and password confidential and use it only to access and use your account and not for any other purpose. You are the only authorised user of your account, unless expressly specified otherwise, and accordingly you must not disclose your username and/or password to anyone else. You should contact us immediately upon discovering any unauthorised use of your account or error in the operation of your username and/or password. Any breach of these terms and conditions and/or any use of your account by anyone to whom you disclose your username and/or password will be treated as if the breach or use had been carried out by you and will not relieve you of your obligations to us. Any such use will be attributed to you in accordance with these terms and conditions.

Please notify us immediately via our website if anyone else has become aware of your credentials in circumstances in which there is a risk of misuse or if you have any reason to believe that there is any other risk of any unauthorised use of your account.

Termination

We may terminate the Services, or your access to or use of the Services or your account, with or without notice. Reasons for us terminating your account or the Services include, without limitation: (a) breach or violation of these Terms of Use, (b) your request or self-effecting account deletion, (c) non-payment of any fees or other sums due to us or any other party related to your use of the Services, (d) requests by law enforcement or other government agencies, (e) the discontinuance or material modification to the Services (or any part thereof), or (f) unexpected technical or security issues or problems. In the event of any termination, we will close your account and you will no longer be able to retrieve content contained in that account or otherwise use the Services.

It is your responsibility to ensure your equipment (computer, laptop, netbook, tablet, or other mobile device) meets all the necessary technical specifications to enable you to access and use the website and is compatible with the website.

We may, from time to time, restrict access to certain features, parts or content of the website, or the entire website, to users who have registered with us.

We do not guarantee the continuous, uninterrupted, or error-free operability of the website. There may be times when certain features, parts or content of the website, or the entire website, become unavailable (whether on a scheduled or unscheduled basis) or are modified, suspended, or withdrawn by us, in our sole discretion, without notice to you.

In order to enable us to operate the Services, we must obtain from you certain licence and other rights to the Content you submit (so that our processing, maintenance, storage, technical reproduction, back-up and distribution, and related handling of your Content does not infringe applicable copyright and other laws).

You agree that these rights and licences are royalty free, irrevocable and worldwide, and include a right for us to make such Content available to, and pass these rights along to, others with whom we have contractual relationships related to the provision of the Services, solely for the purpose of providing such services, and to otherwise permit access to your Content to third parties if we determine such access is necessary to comply with its legal obligations or to (a) respond to your requests for service; (b) enforce this Agreement; (c) respond to claims that your Content violates the rights of third parties; or (d) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of us, other users, or the public. Where we are required to access and disclose your account information and Content, we will, to the extent we are permitted to do so, give you as much notice of this disclosure as possible.

Except for the limited licence and other rights granted to us in these Terms of Use, you retain all of the rights you had in your Content before you submitted it. If you invite and enable others to view or have access to the Content you store within the Services, then you are enabling each of those permitted users of the Services access to such Content, and we shall not be responsible for any duplication, publication or other use of such Content by such users.

Your “Content”, as defined and used in these Terms of Use, does not include Contributions.

Your Rights

My Halo Life hereby grants you a personal, worldwide, royalty-free, non-assignable and non-exclusive licence to use the Software provided to you by us as part of the Services as provided to you by us, for the sole purpose of enabling you to use and enjoy the benefit of the Services as permitted by these Terms of Use, until your rights are terminated in accordance with these Terms of Use or the user Agreement governing your use of the Services.

As indicated above, you retain copyright and any other rights you already hold in Content which you submit, post or display on or through the Services. Other than the limited licence and other rights you grant in these Terms of Use, we obtain no right, title or interest from you (or your licensors) under these Terms of Use in or to any Content that you submit, post, store, transmit or display on, or through, the Services, including any intellectual property rights which subsist in that Content (whether those rights happen to be registered or not, and wherever in the world those rights may exist).
