TeeBase Terms of Service
Posted: April 14, 2017
Thanks for using TeeBase products and services.
The website https://www.teebase.eu is a service offered by:
TeeBase UK Ltd., a UK private limited company, Companies’ House No. 10230602, filed with the Registrar of Companies for England and Wales.
6-8 Tokenhouse Yard
London EC2R 7AS UK
Hosting : GoDaddy Operating Company, LLC.
Your Property & Your Permissions
When you use our Services, you provide us with things like your files, content, messages, contacts and so on (“Your Property”). Your Property is yours, not ours. These Terms don’t give us any rights to Your Property except for the limited rights that enable us to offer the Services.
We need your permission to do things like hosting Your Property, backing it up, and sharing it when you ask us to. Our Services also provide you with features that are described on this website. These and other features may require our systems to access, store and scan Your Property. You give us permission to do those things, and this permission extends to our affiliates and trusted third parties we work with.
Sharing Your Property
Our Services let you share Your Property with others, so please think carefully about what you share.
You’re responsible for your conduct. Your Property and you must comply with our Acceptable Use Policy. Content in the Services may be protected by others’ intellectual property rights. Please don’t copy, upload, download or share content unless you have the right to do so.
We may review your conduct and content for compliance with these Terms and our Acceptable Use Policy, but we have no obligation to do so. We aren’t responsible for the content people post and share via the Services.
Help us keep you informed and Your Property protected. Safeguard your password to the Services, and keep your account information current. Don’t share your account credentials or give others access to your account.
You may use our Services only as permitted by applicable law, including export control laws and regulations. Finally, our Services are not intended for and may not be used by people under the age of 18. By using our Services, you are representing to us that you’re over 18.
Some of our Services allow you to download client software (“Software”) which may update automatically. So long as you comply with these Terms, we give you a limited, nonexclusive, non-transferable, revocable license to use the Software, solely to access the Services. To the extent any component of the Software may be offered under an open source license, we’ll make that license available to you and the provisions of that license may expressly override some of these Terms. Unless the following restrictions are prohibited by applicable law, you agree not to reverse engineer or decompile the Services, attempt to do so, or assist anyone in doing so.
We may sometimes release products and features that we are still testing and evaluating. Those Services have been marked beta, preview, early access, or evaluation (or with words or phrases with similar meanings) and may not be as reliable as TeeBase’s other services, so please keep that in mind.
The Services are protected by copyright, trademark, and other UK and foreign laws. These Terms don’t grant you any right, title or interest in the Services, others’ content in the Services, TeeBase trademarks, logos and other brand features. We welcome feedback, but note that we may use comments or suggestions without any obligation to you.
We respect the intellectual property of others and ask that you do too. We respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement if they comply with applicable law, and such notices should be reported using our Copyright Policy. We reserve the right to delete or disable content alleged to be infringing and terminate accounts of repeat infringers. Our designated agent for notice of alleged copyright infringement on the Services is:
TeeBase UK Ltd.
6-8 Tokenhouse Yard
London EC2R 7AS
Billing. We’ll automatically bill you from the date you subscribe to any of our Services and on each periodic renewal until cancellation. If you’re on an annual plan, we’ll send you a notice email reminding you that your plan is about to renew within a reasonable period of time prior to the renewal date. You’re responsible for all applicable taxes, and we’ll charge tax when required to do so. Some countries have mandatory local laws regarding your cancellation rights, and this paragraph doesn’t override these laws.
No Refunds. You may cancel TeeBase Account at any time. Refunds are only issued if required by law. For example, users living in the European Union have the right to cancel their TeeBase Account subscriptions within 14 days of signing up for, upgrading to or renewing a TeeBase Account.
Changes. We may change the fees in effect but will give you advance notice of these changes via a message to the email address associated with your account.
You’re free to stop using TeeBase Services at any time. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate your access to the Services with notice to you if:
(a) you’re in breach of these Terms, or
(b) you’re using the Services in a manner that would cause a real risk of harm or loss to us or other users.
We’ll provide you with reasonable advance notice via the email address associated with your account to remedy the activity that prompted us to contact you and give you the opportunity to export Your Property from our Services. If after such notice, you fail to take the steps we ask of you, we’ll terminate or suspend your access to the Services.
We won’t provide notice before termination if:
(a) you’re in material breach of these Terms,
(b) doing so would cause us legal liability or compromise our ability to provide the Services to our other users, or
(c) we’re prohibited from doing so by law.
Discontinuation of Services
We may decide to discontinue the Services in response to unforeseen circumstances beyond TeeBase’s control or to comply with a legal requirement. If we do so, we’ll give you reasonable prior notice so that you can export Your Property from our systems. If we discontinue Services in this way before the end of any fixed or minimum term you have paid us for, we’ll refund the portion of the fees you have pre-paid but haven’t received Services for.
Services “AS IS”
We strive to provide great Services, but there are certain things that we can’t guarantee. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, TeeBase AND ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS MAKE NO WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ABOUT THE SERVICES. THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS.” WE ALSO DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. Some places don’t allow the disclaimers in this paragraph, so they may not apply to you.
Limitation of Liability
WE DON’T EXCLUDE OR LIMIT OUR LIABILITY TO YOU WHERE IT WOULD BE ILLEGAL TO DO SO — THIS INCLUDES ANY LIABILITY FOR TeeBase’s OR ITS AFFILIATES’ FRAUD OR FRAUDULENT MISREPRESENTATION IN PROVIDING THE SERVICES. IN COUNTRIES WHERE THE FOLLOWING TYPES OF EXCLUSIONS AREN’T ALLOWED, WE’RE RESPONSIBLE TO YOU ONLY FOR LOSSES AND DAMAGES THAT ARE A REASONABLY FORESEEABLE RESULT OF OUR FAILURE TO USE REASONABLE CARE AND SKILL OR OUR BREACH OF OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU. THIS PARAGRAPH DOESN’T AFFECT CONSUMER RIGHTS THAT CAN’T BE WAIVED OR LIMITED BY ANY CONTRACT OR AGREEMENT.
IN COUNTRIES WHERE EXCLUSIONS OR LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY ARE ALLOWED, TeeBase, ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS OR DISTRIBUTORS WON’T BE LIABLE FOR:
- ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, OR
- ANY LOSS OF USE, DATA, BUSINESS, OR PROFITS, REGARDLESS OF LEGAL THEORY.
THESE EXCLUSIONS OR LIMITATIONS WILL APPLY REGARDLESS OF WHETHER OR NOT TeeBase OR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES HAS BEEN WARNED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
IF YOU USE THE SERVICES FOR ANY COMMERCIAL, BUSINESS OR RE-SALE PURPOSE, TeeBase, ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS OR DISTRIBUTORS WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY LOSS OF PROFIT, LOSS OF BUSINESS, BUSINESS INTERUPTION, OR LOSS OF BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY. TeeBase AND ITS AFFILIATES AREN’T RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONDUCT, WHETHER ONLINE OR OFFLINE, OF ANY USER OF THE SERVICES.
OTHER THAN FOR THE TYPES OF LIABILITY WE CANNOT LIMIT BY LAW (AS DESCRIBED IN THIS SECTION), WE LIMIT OUR LIABILITY TO YOU TO THE GREATER OF £20 GBP OR 100% OF ANY AMOUNT YOU’VE PAID UNDER YOUR CURRENT SERVICE PLAN WITH TeeBase.
Let’s Try To Sort Things Out Amicably First. We want to address your concerns without needing a formal legal case. Before filing a claim against TeeBase, you agree to try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting you via email. If a dispute is not resolved within 15 days of submission, you or TeeBase may bring a formal proceeding.
Arbitration and forum for disputes and applicable law. You and TeeBase agree that any dispute that cannot be resolved informally will be resolved by binding arbitration. Except as otherwise specifically provided herein, these Terms shall be exclusively governed and construed in accordance with the “UNIDROIT” Principles of International Commercial Contracts of 2010, and any dispute not amicably resolved by the parties arising out of, or in relation to, this Agreement, including the validity, invalidity, breach, or termination thereof, shall be resolved by arbitration in accordance under the Rules of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce by one arbitrator appointed in accordance with the said rules, whose costs shall be borne equally. The seat of the arbitration shall be London, England. The arbitral proceedings shall be conducted in English. If you reside in a country (for example, European Union member states) with laws that give consumers the right to bring disputes in their local courts, this paragraph doesn’t affect those requirements.
NO CLASS ACTIONS. You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations aren’t allowed.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and TeeBase with respect to the subject matter of these Terms, and supersede and replace any other prior or contemporaneous agreements, or terms and conditions applicable to the subject matter of these Terms. These Terms create no third-party beneficiary rights.
Waiver, Severability & Assignment
TeeBase’s failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the Terms will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights under these Terms, and any such attempt will be void. TeeBase may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services.
We may revise these Terms from time to time to better reflect:
(a) changes to the law,
(b) new regulatory requirements, or
(c) improvements or enhancements made to our Services.
If an update affects your use of the Services or your legal rights as a user of our Services, we’ll notify you prior to the update’s effective date by sending an email to the email address associated with your account or via an in-product notification. These updated terms will be effective no less than 30 days from when we notify you.
If you don’t agree to the updates we make, please cancel your account before they become effective. Where applicable, we’ll offer you a prorated refund based on the amounts you have prepaid for Services and your account cancellation date. By continuing to use or access the Services after the updates come into effect, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms.

Thanks for using TeBase.
Here we describe how we collect, use and handle your information when you use our websites, products, software and services (“Services”).
What & Why
We collect and use the following information to provide, improve and protect our Services:
Account. We collect, and associate with your account, information like your name, email address, phone number, payment info, physical address, and account activity. Some of our Services let you access your accounts and your information with other service providers.
Services. Our Services are designed to make it simple for you to store Your Property, collaborate with others, and work across multiple devices. To make that possible, we store, process, and transmit Your Property, as well as information related to it. This related information can be things like your profile information that makes it easier to collaborate and share Your Property with others. Our Services provide you with different options for sharing Your Property.
You may choose to give us access to your contacts to make it easy for you to do things like share and collaborate on Your Property, send messages, and invite others to use the Services. If you do, we’ll store those contacts on our servers for you to use.
Usage. We collect information related to how you use the Services, including actions you take in your account (like sharing, editing, viewing, and moving files or folders). This helps us provide you with features like the “Activity” page and version history.
We also collect information from and about the devices you use to access the Services. This includes things like IP addresses, the type of browser and device you use, the web page you visited before coming to our sites, and identifiers associated with your devices. Your devices (depending on their settings) may also transmit location information to the Services.
Cookies and other technologies. We use technologies like cookies and pixel tags to provide, improve, protect and promote our Services. For example, cookies help us with things like remembering your username for your next visit, understanding how you are interacting with our Services, and improving them based on that information. You can set your browser to not accept cookies, but this may limit your ability to use the Services. If our systems receive a DNT:1 signal from your browser, we’ll respond to that signal as outlined here.
We may share information as discussed below, but we won’t sell it to advertisers or other third parties.
Other users. Our Services display information like your name, profile picture, and email address to other users in places like your user profile and sharing notifications. When you register your TeeBase account with an email address on a domain owned by you, your employer or organization, we may help collaborators find you and your team by making some of your basic information—like your name, team name, profile picture, and email address—visible to other users on the same domain. This helps us show you teams you can join, and helps other users share files and folders with you.
Certain features let you make additional information available to others.
Other applications. You can also give third parties access to your information and account – for example, via TeeBase APIs. Just remember that their use of your information will be governed by their privacy policies and terms.
Legal Disclosure. We may disclose your information to third parties if we determine that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) comply with the law; (b) protect any person from death or serious bodily injury; (c) prevent fraud or abuse of TeeBase or our users; or (d) protect TeeBase’s property rights.
Stewardship of your data is critical to us and a responsibility that we embrace. We believe that our users’ data should receive the same legal protections regardless of whether it is stored on our services or on your computer’s hard drive. We will abide by the following Government Request Principles when receiving, scrutinizing and responding to government requests (including national security requests) for our users’ data:
- Be transparent,
- Fight blanket requests,
- Protect all users and
- Provide trusted services.
Security. We have a team dedicated to keeping your information secure and testing for vulnerabilities. We also continue to work on features to keep your information safe in addition to things like two-factor authentication, encryption of files at rest, and alerts when new devices and apps are linked to your account.
Retention. We’ll retain information you store on our Services for as long as we need it to provide you the Services. If you delete your account, we’ll also delete this information. But please note: (1) there might be some latency in deleting this information from our servers and back-up storage; and (2) we may retain this information if necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, or enforce our agreements. You can access your personal information by logging into your TeeBase account.
Around the world. To provide you with the Services, we may store, process and transmit information in the United Kingdom and locations around the world – including those outside your country. Information may also be stored locally on the devices you use to access the Services.
EU-US Privacy Shield and US-Swiss Safe Harbour. When transferring data from the European Union, the European Economic Area, and Switzerland, TeeBase relies upon a variety of legal mechanisms, including contracts with our users. TeeBase complies with the U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbour (“Safe Harbour”) framework and its principles. We also participate in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Program (“Privacy Shield”) and comply with its framework and principles. You can also learn more about Privacy Shield at https://www.privacyshield.gov and Safe Harbour at http://2016.export.gov/safeharbor/swiss/. As the United Kingdom leaves the European Union, there may be new agreements put in place similar to the ones mentioned above.
If we are involved in a reorganization, merger, acquisition or sale of our assets, your information may be transferred as part of that deal. We will notify you (for example, via a message to the email address associated with your account) of any such deal and outline your choices in that event.
