User must register and select User’s initial level of service with FundHero through FundHero’s application at http://www.fundhero.io or https://app.fundhero.io.
User and FundHero agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement as of the completion of User’s registration with FundHero (the “Commencement Date”).
Right to Use the Application.
Subject to the terms of this Agreement, FundHero hereby grants User a non-exclusive, non-transferable right to use the FundHero application (the “Application”), which Application is more specifically described on FundHero’s website (http://www.fundhero.io). Use of the Application, together with access to capacity on FundHero’s hosting servers for Customer Data (as hereinafter defined) is collectively referred to herein as the “Service”.
During the term of User’s access to the Application, FundHero shall provide User all updates and enhancements (the “Updates”) to the Application that are made generally available to other Users, at no additional cost to User.
Compliance with Campaign Finance Laws. Political contributions are governed by campaign finance laws. User shall comply with all laws, rules and regulations regarding the use of the Service, including complying fully with any applicable campaign finance and fundraising laws, rules and regulations. User is solely responsible for the accuracy of campaign finance reports created using data derived from the Service and filed with regulatory agencies. FundHero shall not be deemed an agent of User in connection with User’s campaign finance or fundraising activities. FundHero makes no effort to ensure that contributions made through the Application are in accordance with applicable campaign finance or other laws. User has full and final responsibility for ensuring User’s own compliance.
The grant of rights hereunder to use the Application is not a sale of, or license to, the Application or any portion thereof. The Application is protected by intellectual property laws, it belongs to and is the property of FundHero, and FundHero retains all ownership rights thereto. FundHero reserves all rights not expressly granted by this Agreement.
User shall not sell, license, lease, rent, or allow use of the Service to or by any other party.
User shall not use the Service to perform or provide services for the benefit of or on behalf of any other party.
User shall not copy, modify, alter or change, reverse engineer or decompile the Application or any portion thereof. User shall execute contracts with any consultants, vendors or other third parties that User authorizes to use the Application which obligates such party (and its employees, agents and other working on its behalf) to the terms and conditions of this clause and all other applicable provisions of this Agreement.
User shall not transfer or assign any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of FundHero, which consent may be withheld or denied by FundHero for any reason or no reason whatsoever. Any such transfer or assignment without FundHero’s written consent shall be void and of no force and effect.
User will comply with FundHero’s Acceptable Use Policy, if any.
User will not (i) use or launch any automated system, including, “robots,” “spiders,” or “offline readers,” that sends more request messages in a given period of time than a human can reasonably produce in the same period by using a conventional browser; (ii) use the Service in any manner that damages, disables, overburdens, or impairs any of our websites or interferes with any other party’s use of the Service; (iii) attempt to gain unauthorized access to the Service; (iv) access the Service other than through the Application; or (v) use the Service for any purpose or in any manner that is unlawful or prohibited by this Agreement.

The Service is not designed to comply with industry-specific regulations such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), or the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), so User may not use the Service where User’s communications would be subject to such laws.
User will immediately notify FundHero of any unauthorized use of Users’ identifications and passwords or User’s account.
