You are solely responsible for any Content that you submit to, transmit via or access through our Services. To deliver our Services, we need your approval to do things like hosting your Content, backing it up, and sharing it with other users of our Services, as well as featuring it in newsfeeds. When you engage Hubba for paid professional services, you agree to and authorize a Hubba consultant to log into your account and perform the professional services for the period of the engagement.

We take pride in the professionalism of our business, as we are sure you do as well. We may in our sole discretion, edit, remove or delete any Content that you post or submit that Hubba determines violates our User Conduct Policy.

Accounts Fees & Payment

We’re so excited to share the power and benefits of Hubba with you, that we want you to be able to curate and share your Content for free.  Any of our Services that are provided to you for free or for a fee are provided for the term detailed when you register for your user account, or for the term detailed in your contract. The scope and activities of any of our paid professional services are defined in the service offering you purchase and expire at the end of the term detailed therein. Hubba may permit you to participate in some, but not all, of the features and functionality available via the Services, and/or require that you pay an additional subscription fee, professional services fee, or other one-time fees in order to access additional features and functionality, and for Hubba professional services. Over time, if you decide to upgrade from a free account to a paying account to gain access to more features and functionality, we will bill you and your account will turn into a Paid Account. We’ll automatically bill you from the date you convert to or subscribe for a Paid Account and on each periodic renewal until you cancel your use of the Services under these Terms.

Fees: You agree to pay and authorize Hubba to charge using your selected payment method for all applicable fees and taxes that we charge when required to do so. If you enroll in the monthly billing plan, we begin charging you on the date you subscribe for a monthly Paid Account and on each periodic renewal.  If you enroll in the annual billing plan, we charge you on the date you subscribe for an annual Paid Account and on each periodic renewal , and all fees are non-refundable except as required by law. If you are purchasing any of our professional services or desire to purchase any other Hubba one-time services or packages, we charge you on the date you place your order. You are responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information to Hubba.  If you do not pay on time for your Paid Account or for other purchased services, we reserve the right to suspend your Hubba account.

Auto Renewals and Trials:  IF YOUR PAID ACCOUNT IS SET TO AUTO RENEWAL, OR IS IN A TRIAL PERIOD, HUBBA MAY AUTOMATICALLY CHARGE AT THE END OF THE TRIAL, OR FOR THE RENEWAL, UNLESS YOU NOTIFY HUBBA IN WRITING THAT YOU WANT TO CANCEL OR DISABLE AUTO RENEWAL.   Hubba may revise fees charged for Paid Accounts, professional services and one-time purchases by providing you at least 30 days notice prior to the next charge. You may cancel your Hubba Paid Account at any time but you will not be issued a refund for any prepaid amounts.

 

Termination & Suspension

While we will be disappointed to see you go, you are free to stop using our Services at any time. We reserve the right to suspend or end your access to Hubba Services at any time at our discretion and without notice.  For example, we may suspend or terminate your use of the Services if you are not complying with these Terms, or use the Services in a manner that would cause us legal liability, disrupt the Services or disrupt others’ use of the Services. With the exception of Paid Accounts, we reserve the right to terminate and delete your account if you have not visited Hubba or accessed our Services for 6 (six) consecutive months. We’ll want you to come back, so naturally of course we will first provide you with notice via the email address associated with your account before we do so.

 

Maintenance

We constantly strive to deliver excellent service to our users. Periodically, we will have to restrict user access to some or all of the Services in order to perform maintenance (including the bug fixes and upgrades to software and/or hardware). Hubba will endeavour to notify you of any change to our regularly scheduled maintenance window in advance. However, Hubba reserves the right to conduct unscheduled maintenance without prior notice when necessary.

 

Disclaimer of Warranty

We treat all our customers with the utmost respect, and consider them valuable partners. We apologize for the wordiness of these next few sections, so please don’t take it personally – just blame it on the lawyers. We aim to provide great Services, but there are certain things that we can’t guarantee or control.
