The following terms and conditions govern all use of the Blaze.Today website, Text Blaze browser extension, and all content, services, and products available at or through our website or browser extension (taken together, our Services).
Please read this Agreement carefully before accessing or using our Services. By accessing or using any part of our services, you agree to become bound by the terms and conditions of this agreement. If you do not agree to all the terms and conditions of this agreement, then you may not access or use any of our services. If these terms and conditions are considered an offer, acceptance is expressly limited to these terms.
Our Services are not directed to children younger than 13, and access and use of our Services is only offered to users 13 years of age or older. If you are under 13 years old, please do not register to use our Services. Any person who registers as a user or provides their personal information to our Services represents that they are 13 years of age or older.
Use of our Services requires an account. You agree to provide us with complete and accurate information when you register for an account. You will be solely responsible and liable for any activity that occurs under your username. You are responsible for keeping your password secure.
Payment and Renewal
General Terms. Optional paid services such as Blaze Pro and Business are available (any such services, an "Upgrade"). By selecting an Upgrade you agree to pay us the monthly or annual subscription fees indicated for that service. Except where noted, payments will be charged on a pre-pay basis on the day you sign up for an Upgrade and will cover the use of that service for a monthly or annual subscription period as indicated.
Text Blaze Business subscriptions are billed on a per user per month basis. For example, if you have ten users in your organization, you will be billed ten times the per-user rate. Users may be added to the organization mid-billing period. In these cases the charge for the period they are added in is prorated and either added to the subsequent period's bill or billed mid-period. Note that if any discounts are applied to an account, we are not able to apply them to this prorated period. Prorated periods are billed at the normal rate regardless of any account discounts.
Automatic Renewal. Unless you notify us before the end of the applicable subscription period that you want to cancel an Upgrade, your Upgrade subscription will automatically renew and you authorize us to collect the then-applicable annual or monthly subscription fee for such Upgrade (as well as any taxes) using any credit card or other payment mechanism we have on record for you. Upgrades can be canceled at any time by from within the Account page of the Text Blaze Dashboard or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Images in Snippets
If you use the Text Blaze Pro feature to embed images in snippets, those images will be uploaded to Text Blaze servers. You certify you have the rights to distribute any images you embed in your snippets. When you insert a snippet containing images, the publically available URL's for the inserted images will be hosted by Text Blaze for at least 30 days and may become inactive after that period.
