The SOFTWARE enables YOU to engage and procure certain third-party services (3RD PARTY), products, apps, and tools in connection with the SOFTWARE. Despite the manner in which such 3RD PARTY may be offered to you, WE merely act as an intermediary platform between YOU and the 3RD PARTY. YOUR relationship with the 3RD PARTY and any terms governing YOUR payment for, and use of, such 3RD PARTY are subject to a separate contractual arrangement between YOU and the provider of the 3RD PARTY. GRANOT is not responsible for any access, collection, transmission, processing, storage, or any other use of DATA, including the COMPANY DATA, by the 3RD PARTY.

Please be aware that GRANOT assumes no responsibility or liability for any links or third-party services, which include, but are not limited to, the operability or interoperability with our SERVICE, security, accuracy, reliability, data protection and processing practices, and the quality of their offerings. In addition, GRANOT cannot be held accountable for any actions or omissions by third parties. When accessing and using third-party services, you acknowledge that this is done at your sole discretion and risk. You bear sole responsibility for ensuring that the operation and practices of the third-party service, as well as its respective third-party agreement, meet your needs.
The SOFTWARE provided by GRANOT operates on a subscription basis (SUBSCRIPTION) for a term specified in your Order Form. The respective subscription plan purchased under the Order Form (PLAN) dictates the terms and services available to you.
In return for access to the SOFTWARE, the COMPANY agrees to pay GRANOT the applicable fees outlined in the purchased SUBSCRIPTION, as set forth by the PLAN. SUBSCRIPTION Fees are stated in US dollars. The COMPANY hereby authorizes GRANOT, either directly or through our payment processing service, to charge the SUBSCRIPTION via the COMPANY`S chosen payment method upon the due date. The SUBSCRIPTION fees are non-cancelable and non-refundable, unless otherwise stated. GRANOT reserves the right to change the SUBSCRIPTION Fees at any time, and will provide notice to the COMPANY if such changes may affect their existing SUBSCRIPTION upon renewal.
Billing and Payments
As part of the registration or billing information submission process to the SOFTWARE, the COMPANY agrees to provide GRANOT with updated, accurate, and complete billing information. The COMPANY also authorizes GRANOT to charge, request, and collect payment from the COMPANY`s chosen payment method or designated banking account (ACH). GRANOT reserves the right to make any inquiries deemed necessary to validate the COMPANY`s designated payment account or financial information to ensure prompt payment. This includes, but is not limited to, receiving updated payment details from the COMPANY`s credit card company or banking account.
In an effort to avoid any interruption or loss of SERVICE, the COMPANY`S SUBSCRIPTION includes an automatic renewal (AUTO PAYMENT) option by default. Unless the COMPANY disables the AUTO PAYMENT option or cancels its SUBSCRIPTION prior to its expiration, the SUBSCRIPTION will automatically renew upon the end of the then-applicable SUBSCRIPTION term.
Certain aspects of the SERVICE (for instance, Lead Market) may be deemed non-refundable. In such cases, these services will be explicitly identified as non-refundable, and the customer will not be entitled to, nor will GRANOT be obligated to, terminate the service and provide a refund.
GRANOT reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to intervene where it believes that the COMPANY and/or any of its Users may have misused the SERVICE or otherwise used the SERVICE excessively compared to the anticipated standard use. In such instances, GRANOT may opt to offer the SUBSCRIPTION at different pricing and/or impose additional restrictions on the upload, storage, download, and use of the SERVICE. This includes, without limitation, restrictions on 3RD PARTY involvement, network traffic and bandwidth, the size and/or length of content, the quality and/or format of content, the sources of content, and the volume of download time, among other factors. The enforcement of this clause is not intended to condone or permit any Unlawful Conduct or Improper Use.
In the event that we record a decline, chargeback, or any other rejection of a charge of any due and payable SUBSCRIPTION Fees on YOUR ACCOUNT, this will be construed as a breach of the COMPANY`s payment obligations under this agreement. As a consequence, the COMPANY`s use of the SERVICE may be disabled or terminated. Restoration of the SERVICE will not occur until the COMPANY re-subscribes for the SERVICE and pays all applicable SUBSCRIPTION Fees in full. This includes any fees and expenses that GRANOT and/or any 3RD PARTY may have incurred for each Chargeback received. These expenses could include handling and processing charges and fees incurred by the payment processor. The implementation of this clause does not derogate from any other remedy that may be applicable to us under these Terms or applicable law.

Termination of Service
Either YOUR COMPANY or GRANOT may terminate the SERVICE and these Terms with written notice, given material breach of these Terms, business operations ceasing, or insolvency proceedings. Termination of the SUBSCRIPTION to the SERVICE by the COMPANY does not absolve it from paying applicable SUBSCRIPTION Fees, unless termination occurs within the Refund Period
Suspension and Cancellation
GRANOT reserves the right to temporarily suspend your ACCOUNT and/or User Profile access, or your SERVICE, under the following conditions: (i) if GRANOT determines that your use of the SERVICE poses a security risk, could harm GRANOT or any 3RD PARTY, or potentially expose GRANOT or any 3RD PARTY to liability; (ii) if you or any 3RD PARTY are found to be in violation of these Terms or applicable law, as determined by GRANOT; (iii) if your payment obligations according to these Terms are overdue or expected to be overdue; or (iv) if you or any of your Users violate the Acceptable Use Policy.

Leads API Gateway

Optional Integration with Google API Services
As an optional feature, our SERVICE offers CUSTOMERS the ability to link their users` individual Google accounts (both GMAIL and WORKSPACE) to Google API Services (GOOGLE API). GRANOT handles these credentials with utmost confidentiality. The primary objective of this integration with GOOGLE API is to enhance and assure accessibility to select DATA you opt to duplicate from our SERVICE to GOOGLE API. Such data might include backups of data and files, calendar events (EVENT), especially in situations where internet connectivity might be compromised, or generating advanced reports in Google Sheets. User`s consent and comprehension of the nature and scope of data to be copied to GOOGLE API, as well as how the SERVICE modifies or deletes the same data it transmitted to GOOGLE API, underpin the data access request. For more information, please refer to: - Google API Services User Data Policy: https://developers.google.com/terms/api-services-user-data-policy - Restricted scopes for Google API: https://support.google.com/cloud/answer/9110914?hl=en#restricted-scopes
Limited Access to Google API Services
Our SERVICE establishes a storage ecosystem (FOLDER) within the Google User Account for data and files. It conducts operations to add, update, read, and delete data files and calendar events (CALENDAR) created by the SERVICE itself. Importantly, the SERVICE does not interact with, gather, download, modify, share, or display any user data within Google (information, files, events, etc.) that was not originated from or related to our SERVICE. Gmail: We use this to send emails on YOUR behalf, communicating with YOUR CONSUMERS from the USER`s Gmail Account. Google Drive: Our SERVICE creates a primary folder in the root directory (Granot) and subfolders within the main Granot folder (for instance, Backup, Reports). These are used to upload YOUR documents and files for backup and storage linkage purposes (such as contracts, images, recipes, and estimates). Also, it exports reports and information grids to spreadsheets. Google Calendar: Upon user selection, calendars are created, like Granot Schedule, Granot Timesheet, Granot Operation, and Granot Mission. The SERVICE mainly displays EVENT (such as Pickups, In-Person Visits, Timesheet Rosters) within its calendars (a SOFTWARE component), and may also reflect the same EVENT in Google Calendar for backup and easy access to information from the USERÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s mobile without the need to log into the SERVICE.
