Terms of Service

Last Updated: June 5, 2015

Grovo Learning, Inc. ("Grovo", "we" or "our") provides via our website, accessible at www.grovo.com (the "Site"), an online training platform through which users can access information and tutorials and learn how to use popular third party websites, online services and mobile applications, or upload their own training content and deliver it to their team (any and all of the foregoing, the "Services"). The Services include our proprietary media player software application and related documentation (including any updates, new versions or new releases thereof) and any other products and services offered by Grovo via the Site and Services. For the avoidance of doubt, the Services do not include Third Party Services (defined below).

Please read carefully the following terms and conditions ("Terms of Service"). These Terms of Service are a legal agreement between you and Grovo and apply to you whether you are a Subscriber (defined below) or a visitor just browsing the Site (either, a "Grovo User"). Unless otherwise provided in the Grovo Services Agreement between you and Grovo, or elsewhere herein, these Terms of Service govern your access to and use of the Site and the Services and all text, graphics, images, music, software, audio, video, lessons, tutorials works of authorship of any kind, and information or other materials that are posted, generated, provided or otherwise made available through the Services (collectively, "Content").

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, BY CLICKING ON THE "CREATE ACCOUNT" BUTTON, SIGNING AN ORDER FORM, ACCESSING OR USING THE SITE OR THE SERVICES, YOU ARE INDICATING THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, WHETHER OR NOT YOU HAVE REGISTERED WITH THE SITE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, THEN YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO ACCESS OR USE THE SITE, SERVICES OR CONTENT.

REMINDER REGARDING THE SERVICES:

  • Grovo's mission is to provide our users with a training platform on which they can upload their own training content or access Grovo's tutorials to assist them with using popular third party websites, online services and mobile applications (each a "Third Party Service").
  • Our provision of information and/or lessons regarding a Third Party Service is not a recommendation or endorsement of such Third Party Service or the content, products or services made available by or through such Third Party Service.
  • Grovo is not responsible for the availability or accuracy of any Third Party Service and you acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for your use of such services.

Grovo reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify, discontinue or terminate the Site or Services or to modify these Terms of Service, at any time and without prior notice. If we modify these Terms of Service, we will post the modification on the Site or provide you with notice of the modification. We will also update the "Last Updated Date" at the top of this document. By continuing to access or use the Site or the Services after we have posted a modification on the Site or have provided you with notice of a modification, you are indicating that you agree to be bound by the modified Terms of Service. If the modified Terms of Service are not acceptable to you, your only recourse is to cease using the Site and the Services.
