TERMS OF USE (July 2018)

These terms and conditions (which we will call the "Terms of Use"), in addition to our Privacy Policy, and any other documents referred to in these terms (which, together, form the "Fieldmargin Terms"), govern your use of the App and the Website (which, together, we shall call the "Fieldmargin Platforms"), and constitute a legally binding contract between Fieldmargin and you.

You should read, and make sure that you understand, these all of the Fieldmargin Terms before downloading, installing, or accessing (i.e. "using") any of the Fieldmargin Platforms. If you do not agree with any of the Fieldmargin Terms, you cannot use any of the Fieldmargin Platforms, and by using any Fieldmargin Platform you are be deemed to agree to the Fieldmargin Terms.

Terms of Use last updated: [12 July 2018]

1. Our guide to understanding these terms of use

1.1 To protect Fieldmargin and to provide you with all the information that we think you should be given before using any of the Fieldmargin Platforms, these Terms of Use cover a number of things, including:

1.2 We have tried to keep these Terms of Use as user-friendly as possible, and one way we have done so is to shorten them and make them consistent throughout by using defined terms. The most important defined terms that you will see in these Terms of Use are:

2. What do the terms of use apply to?

2.1 The Fieldmargin Terms, including these Terms of Use, constitute a legally-binding contract between you and us, governing your use of the Fieldmargin Platforms. The latest Fieldmargin Terms will apply every time you use any of the Fieldmargin Platforms, and you and we agree to be bound by them on each such occasion.

2.2 You should also note that the Appstores may require you to agree to further terms and conditions in order to use or update the App (together, the "Appstore Terms"). For example, the "Apple App Store" requires us to include certain terms in these Terms of Use, which we have added at the bottom of them. We will try to update these Terms of Use to reflect any changes to the requirements of the Appstore Terms, but in any event you agree to comply with any Appstore Terms which apply from time to time.

3. What does the app do?

3.1 The App and the Website are primarily designed to provide an easy-to-use, visual record of your farm, which you can access while either out in the fields or back at the farmhouse, home, or office. The Fieldmargin Platforms allow you to draw maps, make notes, leave messages for your team, and more, with or without an internet connection.

3.2 The Fieldmargin Platforms may also display products and/or services from third-party suppliers which you may be interested in, and allow you to click-through to that supplier’s own website or mobile application to view products and place orders. It is important that you recognise that any such third party will probably require you to agree to its separate terms and conditions to both use their website or mobile application, and to place any order for their products and/or services. Fieldmargin will not be a party to any such terms and conditions, and cannot intervene in your relationship with the relevant third party.

3.3 We are committed to maintaining a free-to-use version of the Fieldmargin Platforms, but we may also offer paid-for features. Depending on whether you choose to sign-up for those features, you (or someone that you work with) may have to agree to another set of terms and conditions in order to have access to certain features which are not available to others users (or, conversely, they may have access to features which you do not).

4. Who can use the Fieldmargin Platforms?

4.1 You must be aged 18 or over use any of the Fieldmargin Platforms.

4.2 If you are a business using any of the Fieldmargin Platforms across multiple devices or users on your farm, in addition to each user individually agreeing to the Fieldmargin Terms every time that they use any of the Fieldmargin Platforms, you represent and warrant that each such use and user complies with the Fieldmargin Terms.

4.3 We strive to make the App available on as many platforms as possible, but you remain solely responsible for ensuring that your device, operating system, and internet connection are sufficient to use any of the Fieldmargin Platforms, and that you are permitted to use any such Fieldmargin Platform in whichever territory you are seeking to use it in.

5. Changes to these terms of use

5.1 We keep the Terms of Use under regular review and may change or update them from time to time to reflect changes in law or best practice, or to deal with changes or additional features which we introduce to the Fieldmargin Platforms. If we decide to do this and we believe that our amendments will adversely affect you, and where we are able, we will give you at least 30 days’ notice of any such changes (we will notify you through the App or on the Website).

5.2 Any changes to these Terms of Use will apply from and including the "Last Updated" date at the top of these Terms of Use, even if you had used any of the Platforms before that date.

5.3 If you do not accept any changes that we make to any of the Fieldmargin Terms, you cannot continue to use the App, and must immediately delete it from your device, or the Website.

6. Changes to the App

6.1 From time to time, updates to the App may be issued through the Appstores. Depending on the update, you may not be able to fully use the App until you have downloaded the latest version of the App and accepted any amendments to the Fieldmargin Terms.

7. Use of your information data

7.1 In order to use the Fieldmargin Platforms, you will have to provide and we will have to collect some of your personal data. This is to be expected – the Fieldmargin Platforms are designed to work for each individual farmer, and do so they need some information about him or her (for example, the location of the farm). However, we will only collect and use your personal data in accordance with the terms of our Privacy Policy.

7.2 We must remind you that, although we make every effort to ensure the security of the App, the Website, and our servers, internet transmissions are never completely private or secure, and any information you send using the Fieldmargin Platforms may be read or intercepted by others, even if there is a special notice that a particular transmission is encrypted. We do not take responsibility for and cannot be held liable for any such compromise of your information.

8. Links to third-party content in the Fieldmargin Platforms

8.1 The Fieldmargin Platforms may contain links to third-party websites and applications, including for example third party suppliers whose products and/or services are displayed on the Fieldmargin Platforms, and/or embedded, frame, or otherwise present third-party content, such as map services and weather information in your locality ("Third-Party Content" ). We have no control over Third-Party Content, and we are not responsible for and do not endorse it – you access and use such Third-Party Content entirely at your own risk. You should be aware that the relevant third party may require you to agree to its own terms and conditions to use such Third-Party Content, and other terms will apply (to which we are not a party and have no responsibility) if you choose to purchase any products and/or services from a third party.

9. What can you do with the Fieldmargin Platforms?

9.1 In return for you agreeing to be bound by the Fieldmargin Terms and subject to your continued compliance with the Fieldmargin Terms, we hereby grant to you a non-transferable, non-exclusive, non-sublicencable, revocable licence to use the App (and any updates to the App that we provide to you, including through the Appstores) and the Website on compatible devices owned or controlled by you for the purpose of using the Fieldmargin Platforms as contemplated by these Terms of Use. You can also use the Website to find out more information about Fieldmargin and the App.

10. What can’t you do with the Fieldmargin Platforms?

You cannot use any of the Fieldmargin Platforms other than in the ways, and for the purposes, which we expressly allow you to (as explained in the "What can you do with the Fieldmargin Platforms?" section 9 above), or as is allowed by law. This means that, in particular, that unless permitted by law you cannot:

As such and to the maximum extent permitted by law, the Fieldmargin Platforms are licensed without any representation, warranty or undertaking of any kind (whether express or implied), including but not limited to any assurances as to the availability, performance, accuracy, security or completeness of any of the Fieldmargin Platforms. We do not warrant, represent or undertake that use and availability of the Fieldmargin Platforms will be uninterrupted or error-free. If this exclusion is not permitted by mandatory law, the applicability of any implied assurance shall be limited to the greatest extent permitted by mandatory law.

17. Other important terms

17.1 We may, without notice to you and without your consent, assign or otherwise transfer our rights (or any of them) under the Fieldmargin Terms to another person or organisation. You also hereby agree that we may similarly assign or otherwise transfer our obligations (or any of them) under the Fieldmargin Terms, without further notice to you, and you agree, upon demand, to enter into any such contract or do any such thing (at our cost) as may be necessary to confirm this. However, you must obtain our prior written consent to assign or otherwise transfer any of your rights or obligations under the Fieldmargin Terms.

17.2 If we do not insist upon or enforce, or if we delay in any such insistence or enforcement, your performance of any of your obligations under the Fieldmargin Terms, that will not mean that we have no future intention to do so or that we have waived our rights against you, and neither will it mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.

17.3 Each of the terms of the Fieldmargin Terms operates separately. If any court or competent authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, such terms shall be amended to least extent possible and reflective of the parties’ original intention, and the remaining conditions will remain in full force and effect.
