Terms of Service

Effective as of May 1st, 2016

  1. Acceptance of Terms
    1. This Terms of Service document, (the "TOS"), is an agreement you must accept in order to use Brewlog’s Service (as defined below). It describes both your rights and your obligations as part of using the Service. It is important that you read it carefully because you will be legally bound to these terms. Brewlog, LLC. only provides its Service (as defined below) to you subject to this TOS. By accepting this TOS or by accessing or using the Service, you agree to be bound by this TOS (including the Privacy Policy).
    2. If you are entering into this TOS on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind such entity, all of the users from your brewery, and its affiliates to this TOS. In that case, the terms "you" or "your" shall also refer to such entity, its users, and its affiliates, as applicable. If you do not have such authority, or if you do not agree with this TOS, you may not use the Service. You acknowledge that this TOS is a contract between you and BrewLog, even though it is electronic and is not physically signed by you and BrewLog, and it governs your use of the Service.
    3. As our business evolves, BrewLog may change this TOS. If we make a material change to the TOS, we will provide you with reasonable notice prior to the changes either by emailing the email address associated with your account or by posting a notice on the Site. You can review the most current version of the TOS at any time by visiting this page. The revised terms and conditions will become effective on the date set forth in our notice, and if you use the Service after that date, your use will constitute acceptance of the revised terms and conditions. If any change to this TOS is not acceptable to you, you can cancel your account and stop using the Services, which you may do by contacting us at support@brewlog.com.
    4. As part of the registration process, you will identify an owner’s email address and password for your account. You may use these credentials to invite individuals to become users (each with their own password) under your account. The total number of users is limited to the maximum number permitted for your account. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your login, password, and account and for all activities that occur under your login or account, including the activities of users.
    5. You must be over the age of 18 to legally brew beer in the United States. By accessing or using the Services, you affirm that you are at least 18 years of age (or have reached the age of majority if that is not 18 years of age where you live). You represent that you are fully able and competent to enter into and comply with the terms and conditions in this TOS. The Service is not directed to children under 18, so if you are under 18 years of age, you are not permitted to access or use the Services. If we become aware that you are using the Service even though you are under 18, we will deactivate your account.
  2. Description of Service
  3. The "Service" refers to BrewLog’s brewery inventory management, beer recipe management, brew logging web application at http://brewlog.com, data, reports, text, images, and other content made available by or on behalf of BrewLog through the application. The Service does not include Your Data (as defined below). Any modifications and new features added to the Service are also subject to this TOS. BrewLog reserves the right to modify or discontinue the Service (or any Service plan) or any feature or functionality thereof at any time without notice to you. All rights, title and interest in and to the Service and its components (including all intellectual property rights) will remain with and belong exclusively to BrewLog.

  4. Access and Use of the Service.
    1. You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and password. BrewLog cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage from your failure to comply with this security obligation.
    2. You may access and use the Service only for lawful, authorized purposes and you shall not misuse the Service in any manner (as determined by BrewLog in its sole discretion and outlined below). You shall comply with any codes of conduct, policies, storage limitations, or other notices BrewLog provides you or publishes in connection with the Service from time to time, but if any of those policies materially change the TOS, we will provide you with reasonable notice. You shall promptly notify BrewLog if you learn of a security breach related to the Service.
    3. BrewLog reserves the right to use your name as a reference for marketing or promotional purposes on our website and in other communication with existing or potential BrewLog customers. For example, we might list your brewery on our website under lists of BrewLog customers.

You understand that Your Data may be transmitted or handled in an unencrypted manner if you choose to use unencrypted gateways to connect to the Service.
