We reserve the right to make changes or modifications to these Customer Terms or the Customer Agreement at any time, without notice and at our sole discretion. Any changes or modifications to these Customer Terms or the Customer Agreement will be effective immediately upon posting the revisions on our Services. The Customer’s or its Users’ continued use of our Services following the posting of changes or modifications to these Customer Terms or the Customer Agreement will constitute the Customer’s acceptance of such changes or modifications. If the Customer does not agree to such changes or modifications, the Customer or its Users should not continue to use the Services.
YOUR AGREEMENT ON BEHALF OF THE CUSTOMERIf you purchase a subscription, create or authorise us to create teams for the Customer on the Services, invite Users to these teams, or use or allow use of the Services, you

If you do not agree to the Customer Agreement, do not access or use the Services.
CUSTOMER REPRESENTATIVE AND TEAM ADMINISTRATORSThe Customer has the right to assign and modify roles of its Users (including you) or otherwise exercise its rights under the Customer Agreement.
The Customer shall elect one or more Users to manage each of its teams (“Team Administrator”). Team Administrators have the right to configure certain aspects of the Services for the team’s Users, invite Users to join the team, moderate, archive or delete User Content (as defined in User Terms) created by the Users, remove Users from the team, and provide or revoke Team Administrator privileges to other Users in the team.
The Customer shall elect a User to be the ultimate authority and representative of the Customer (“Customer Representative”) in its interactions and transactions with us, with the responsibility to discharge the responsibilities and obligations of the Customer under these Customer Terms and the Customer Agreement.
The Customer shall inform Twimo (in writing or by email) of the name, contact information and other relevant details about the Customer Representative. Any communication sent from Twimo (in writing or by email) to the Customer Representative would be deemed as official communication from Twimo to the Customer.
By default, you will be the first Customer Representative for the Customer. If the Customer elects to replace you with another individual as the Customer Representative or you inform us of such change, you agree to take any actions reasonably requested by us or the Customer to facilitate the transfer of authority to the new Customer Representative.
The Customer Representative and Team Administrators (collectively, the “Administrators”) are responsible for
- ensuring confidentiality of their Administrator account credentials,
- taking steps to ensure that they do not lose control of their Administrator accounts,
- ensuring the competence of Users they make or request Twimo to make as Administrators,
- ensuring that all activities, User Content and user behaviour in the Customer’s teams on these Services are in compliance with the Customer Agreement,
- informing Twimo promptly of any breach of or loss of control to Administrator or User accounts or any violation of the Customer Agreement that they detect.
- the Customer is left without a Customer Representative for any reason, or
- the Customer has lost control of the Customer Representative account, or
- the Customer Representative elected by the Customer is unreachable for an extended period of time, no less than ten (10) business days,
The Customer understands and agrees that Twimo is not responsible for the administration and/or management of the Services as they apply specifically to the Customer’s teams, its Users or their User Content.
CUSTOMER DATA AND OWNERSHIPUsers of the Customer may submit User Content to the Services that individually and collectively form “Customer Data”.
We claim no intellectual property rights over Customer Data. The Customer retains ownership of Customer Data, but by uploading it to the Services, the Customer grants us the worldwide, non-exclusive, limited-term license to access, use, copy, reproduce, process, adapt, publish, distribute, perform, transmit, host and display Customer Data only as reasonably necessary to (i) provide, maintain, analyze, improve and update the Services, (ii) prevent or address service, security, support or technical issues; (iii) process as required by law or as permitted by the Customer Agreement or as instructed by the Customer. The Customer represents and warrants that it has secured all rights in and to Customer Data from its Users as may be necessary to grant us this license.
The Customer will inform its Users of all Customer policies and practices that are relevant to their use of the Services and of any settings that may impact the processing of Customer Data and ensure the transfer and processing of Customer Data under the Customer Agreement is lawful. Twimo is not responsible for what Customer’s Users do with Customer Data. The Customer bears sole responsibility for adequate security and protection of Customer Data when in the Customer’s or its Users’ possession or control.
Twimo takes the security of Customer Data very seriously. Please review our Security Practices document to understand the technical, administrative and organisational measures that Twimo takes to safeguard Customer Data.
TWIMO’S ROLE IN PROVISIONING OF SERVICES FOR THE CUSTOMERThe Customer understands that certain activities related to the provisioning, setup or de-provisioning of the Services for the Customer can only be done by Twimo.
When applicable, the Customer shall request and authorise Twimo to do the following on its behalf:
- create the teams needed for the Customer,
- invite Users to join these teams by sending an invitation email to the email addresses the Customer shares with Twimo for this purpose,
- mark one or more Users specified by the Customer, as Team Administrators,
- manage User permissions,
- provision or de-provision access to the Services,
- configure, customise, and manage surveys, charts and data visualisations,
- delete teams,
- process Customer Data in accordance with the Customer’s instructions,
- process payments towards fees and charges for the Customer’s use of the Services.
Twimo shall execute such Customer instructions strictly on behalf of the Customer, provided such instructions are commensurate with the functionality of the Services and consistent with the Customer Agreement.
The Customer acknowledges and understands that, based on the nature and scope of these instructions, Twimo’s execution of such Customer instructions may result in the access, use, disclosure, modification, processing or deletion of some or all Customer Data and the Customer agrees that Twimo shall not be liable for any such result or outcome.
USE OF THE SERVICESThe Acceptable Use Policy lays down what is acceptable and unacceptable conduct on the Services.
The Customer must comply with the Customer Agreement and ensure that its Users comply with the Customer Agreement, the User Terms and the Acceptable Use Policy. The Customer is responsible for its Users, including any violations of the Customer Agreement by its Users.
We may review User conduct for compliance purposes, but we have no obligation to do so. We are not responsible for any User Content, Customer Data or the way the Customer or its Users choose to use the Services to store or process any Customer Data.
The Services are not intended for and should not be used by anyone under the age of 18. The Customer must ensure that all Users are over 18 years of age. The Customer is solely responsible for providing, at its cost, all equipment, software, and Internet access necessary for itself and its Users to access and use the Services.
If we believe that there is a violation of the Customer Agreement that can be remedied by the Customer’s action (for example, removal of certain Customer Data or a User Account), we will, in most cases, request the Customer to take action. However if the Customer does not take appropriate action or if we believe that there is a credible risk of harm to us, the Services, other customers, users or third parties, we reserve the right to take what we, in our sole discretion, deem appropriate action that may result in, among other things, removal of Customer Data, termination or suspension of the Customer’s rights to use the Services and/or legal action.
SUBMISSIONSWe welcome questions, comments, suggestions and ideas about Twimo and our Services (“Feedback”) from our customers. The Customer agrees that any Feedback provided by the Customer or its Users shall become the sole property of Twimo. Twimo shall own exclusive rights, including all intellectual property rights, and shall be entitled to the unrestricted use and dissemination of Feedback for any purpose, commercial or otherwise. The Customer acknowledges that Twimo is not obligated to provide acknowledgment or compensation to the Customer, its Users or any other third party in exchange for Feedback.
MODIFICATION OR DISCONTINUATION OF SERVICESWe reserve the right, at our discretion and without being liable to the Customer, its Users or to any third party, with or without prior notice, at any time and from time to time, to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, any portion of our Services or the Services in their entirety. Any new features or improvements that augment or enhance the current Services, including the release of new tools and resources, shall be subject to the Customer Agreement.
SUBSCRIPTION, FEES AND PAYMENTSThe Services are available under subscription plans that differ based on subscription fees, features, usage limits and/or duration. The Customer purchases a subscription to the Services that provides for its and its Users use of the Services, subject to the limits of the subscription plan chosen by the Customer.
A calendar month is the shortest unit of our billing cycle. The subscription fee is paid at the start of the billing cycle and is automatically renewed at the start of each new billing cycle.
All stated fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies or duties imposed by taxing authorities and the Customer shall be responsible for the payment of all such taxes, levies or duties. Where required by law, Twimo will collect applicable taxes on behalf of the taxing authorities, in addition to the stated fees, and remit those taxes to taxing authorities.
The Customer authorises Twimo, or its designated payment processor, to charge a specified credit card, debit card or other payment method for such fees, on a recurring basis at the start of each billing cycle.
Unless otherwise specified or agreed upon, all payments and fees are in United States dollars and all charges will be made in United States dollars. The Customer may incur currency exchange or foreign transaction fees based on its agreement with its credit card or other payment method provider.
In the event, the laws of the Customer’s jurisdiction do not permit the Customer to make payments through the modes of payments provided by us to the Customer or if we have indicated any such exclusions or exceptions that may apply to the Customer, the Customer may get in touch with us to discuss the alternative modes of payment. We are not liable for any losses that the Customer may incur as a result of its use of a mode of payment that is (i) not permitted by the laws of its jurisdiction, or (ii) falls under any such exclusions or exceptions that may apply to it as indicated by us.
Twimo reserves the right, at our discretion and without being liable to the Customer, its Users or to any third party, at any time and from time to time, to change the subscription plans, fees, features, usage limits or durations, subject to 30 days notice from us, and effective from the start of the Customer’s next billing cycle. Such notice may be provided by posting the changes to the Services. If the Customer’s billing cycle is longer than a calendar month, a one-time, prorated charge in the case of a fee increase, or refund in the case of a fee decrease, for the remainder of the Customer’s billing cycle starting from the subsequent calendar month may be processed.
The Customer agrees to base purchase decisions solely on the functionality and features of the Services available at the time of making the decision and not on the expectation of any future functionality or features of the Services, even if plans to deliver such functionality are shared by Twimo.
SUBSCRIPTION PLAN CHANGESThe Customer can request Twimo to change its subscription plan by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org at least 7 working days before the start of the new billing cycle.
If the Customer’s and its Users’ usage exceeds the usage limits prescribed for the Customer’s subscription plan, Twimo will inform the Customer and automatically upgrade the Customer to the next higher plan that can accommodate its usage levels. If the Customer does not wish Twimo to upgrade its subscription, the Customer must respond to Twimo within 3 working days and reduce its usage limits, so that the upgrade can be cancelled.
A change in plan level triggered by the Customer’s request or by exceeding its usage limits will result in the new rate being charged from the next billing cycle. An upgrade would trigger a one-time prorated charge for the remainder of the calendar month when the request was raised. There will be no prorating of downgrades for the calendar month when the request was raised. If the Customer’s billing cycle is longer than a calendar month, a one-time, prorated charge in the case of a fee increase, or refund in the case of a fee decrease, for the remainder of the Customer’s billing cycle starting from the subsequent calendar month may be processed.
Downgrades can cause the loss of features and capacity in the Services offered to the Customer and its Users. Twimo is not liable for any loss arising from such a plan change.
CANCELLATIONS, TERMINATIONS AND REFUNDSThe Customer can request Twimo to terminate its subscription by sending an email to email@example.com at least 7 working days before the start of the next billing cycle. Twimo will cease billing the Customer from the next billing cycle following the receipt of this request but will not issue a prorated refund for the current, paid-up billing cycle, unless the Customer’s billing cycle is longer than a calendar month, in which case, a prorated refund for the remainder of the Customer’s billing cycle starting from the subsequent calendar month may be processed.
Twimo will permanently delete all Customer Data and User accounts belonging to the Customer within 30 days of the receipt of your request. The Customer Data, once deleted, cannot be recovered.
Twimo, at its sole discretion, with or without prior notice, has the right to suspend or terminate the Customer’s subscription and all its User accounts, and refuse any and all current or future use of the Services for any reason at any time, including but not limited to, nonpayment of fees, requests by law enforcement or other government agencies, or violation of the Customer Agreement. Such termination of the Services will result in the deactivation, deletion and forfeiture of the Customer’s User accounts, User Content and Customer Data. All payments and fees are nonrefundable for the paid-up billing cycle, including, without limitation, in situations where User Content or Customer Data is removed or User accounts terminated by Twimo due to violation of the Customer Agreement. If the Customer’s billing cycle is longer than a calendar month, a prorated refund for the remainder of the Customer’s billing cycle starting from the subsequent calendar month may be processed. Twimo reserves the right to refuse our Services to anyone for any reason at any time.
In no event will any termination relieve the Customer of its obligation to pay any fees payable to us for the period prior to the effective date of termination.
We reserve the right to temporarily disable the Customer’s User accounts if the collective usage of the Customer and its Users significantly exceeds the Customer’s subscription plan and/or if their level of usage may negatively impact the availability and performance of the Services for other customers and users.
CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATIONEach party (“Discloser”) may disclose “Confidential Information” to the other party (“Recipient”) in connection with the Customer Agreement, which is anything that reasonably should be understood to be confidential given the nature of the information and the circumstances of disclosure including invoices, commercials or any non-public business, product, technology and marketing information. Confidential Information of Customer includes Customer Data. If something is labeled “Confidential”, it shall indicate to the Recipient that the material is confidential.
Notwithstanding the above, Confidential Information does not include information that
- is or becomes generally available to the public without breach of any obligation owed to the Discloser;
- was known to the Recipient prior to its disclosure by the Discloser without breach of any obligation owed to the Discloser;
- is received from a third party without breach of any obligation owed to the Discloser; or

- not use or disclose any Confidential Information of the Discloser for any purpose outside the scope of this Customer Agreement.
Nothing above will prevent either party from sharing Confidential Information with financial and legal advisors; provided, however, that the advisors are bound to confidentiality obligations at least as restrictive as those in the Customer Agreement.
The Recipient may access or disclose Confidential Information of the Discloser if it is required by law; provided, however, that the Recipient gives the Discloser prior notice of the compelled access or disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) and reasonable assistance, if the Discloser wishes to contest the access or disclosure. The Discloser will reimburse the Recipient for its reasonable cost of compiling and providing access to such Confidential Information as well as the reasonable cost for any support provided in connection with the Discloser seeking a protective order or confidential treatment for the Confidential Information to be produced.
Without limiting the foregoing, requests for disclosure of Customer Data as required by law shall be handled by Twimo subject to the Customer Agreement.
