The Site and such services are made available to you conditioned on your acceptance without modification of the terms, conditions and notices contained herein. Please note the words “your” or “your” refer to the customer, user or viewer of the Site (the “User”).
ACCEPTANCE OF AGREEMENT
The usage of the Site and/or the Service implies that the User has carefully read and understood the Agreement. Therefore, you are responsible for reviewing and should become familiar with any modifications made to the Agreement.
If you do not fully agree with this Agreement, please refrain from using the Site and/or the Service.
The User is only entitled to access and use the Site and/or the Service for lawful purposes and pursuant to terms and conditions of the Agreement. As a condition of the use of the Site and/or the Service, the User warrants to Slidebean that it will not use de Site for any purpose that is unlawful or prohibited by this Agreement. The User may not use the Site or the Service in any manner which could damage, disable, overburden or impair the Site or interfere with any other party’s use of the Site.
Slidebean reserves the right to disclose any information necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request.
If the Service is to be provided in any country other than the United States under this Agreement, the User shall comply with all applicable domestic and international laws, statutes, ordinances and regulations regarding the User use of the Site and/or the Service and Content.
REPRESENTATION AND CAPACITY
If the User is entering into this Agreement for a commercial entity, governmental institution, or any other entity (“Entity”), the User represents that it has legal authority to bind said Entity. Slidebean reserves the right to refuse providing the User with the Service in case of any reasonable doubt regarding the User's legitimacy or authorization to order such Service.
The User warrants that it has the necessary rights and permissions to enter into and perform its obligations under this Agreement.
Slidebean provides a personal finance information management service that enables the User to track and visualize its financial information (the “Service” or Recurring”), without charge, accessible through any standard, commercially available internet browser. Via Recurring, the User will be able to visualize a report of compiled monthly and annual expenses.
Slidebean will organize and group the data, according to the information provided by the User, and the User then may display such data in order to review, compare or detect expending patterns, among other features.
The User will be responsible for submitting the base information for Recurring to accurately work, including but not limited to receipts, invoices or any other form of proof of payment (the “Invoice” or “Invoices”). Slidebean will convert the images provided by the User into text, organize and make them available to the User in Recurring’s dashboard.
Currently, the Service only allows for the processing of invoices containing amounts in United States Dollars.
The data visualization made available to the User through Recurring is intended to enable the User to better understand and analyze its spending behaviors and take action accordingly.
The Service itself is not intended to prevent, eliminate or fix any economic circumstances or expending habits, but is solely directed to accommodate the User’s need to collect data and aggregate it in order to draw its own economic conclusions and manage its finances.
Slidebean undertakes to:
- Provide the Service with the care and skill that would reasonably be expected in the circumstances;
- Comply with applicable laws and regulations, as well as reasonable security requirements that apply, but Slidebean will not be liable if, as a result of any such compliance, Slidebean is in breach of any of its obligations under this Agreement;
- Provide information relating to the User’s use of the Service to authorities, regulators and law enforcement agencies, if legally required to.
The User undertakes to:
- Provide the information needed in order for Slidebean to adequately supply the Service, including but not limited to receipts, invoices or any other proof of payment.
- Furnish factual, correct, current and complete information with regards to the User, as may be requested by the data registration process.
- Maintain and promptly update the User’s registration and profile information in an effort to maintain accuracy and completeness at all times.
- Use Slidebean’s Service solely for the purposes stated in section 4 of this Agreement. The User shall not and will not use the Service to perform any activities based on information belonging to a third-party, for which it does not have an explicit and express written authorization granted by its legitimate owner.
- Refrain from using the Site and/or the Service in countries where any regulation may prohibit the use of services associated or considered to be equivalent to those provided by Slidebean.
Slidebean reserves the right to investigate complaints or reported violations of the permitted usage determined by this Agreement, and to take any action it deems appropriate including, but not limited to a) suspending the User’s account without any reimbursement or indemnification for services not rendered or undelivered to the User; b) reporting any suspected unlawful activity to law enforcement officials, regulators or other third-parties; or c) disclosing any information necessary or appropriate to third-parties or law enforcement regarding the User’s profile, e-mail address associated to the account or usage history.
For the purposes of registration, the User must access the Site and create a new account (“Registration”) by providing some information which may include personally identifiable information such as, but not limited to full name, photo, email address (“Personal Data”). The User may also choose to register using its Google account.
In order to use Recurring, the User will be required to be logged in to its account, which will be accessible via the link sent to the User’s email provided in the Registration process; or, if the User used his Google account to register, it will be prompted to enter the email associated to said account to log in.
The User is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of its own email address and password, and for restricting the access to said account. The User agrees to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under its account, since the information associated to every account is strictly personal and non-transferable. Slidebean holds the right to block the User’s account and claim any damages associated to it. Upon cancellation or termination of your access to password protected areas of the Site, Slidebean reserves the right to deactivate your account and delete your user profile.
Slidebean will not be liable for any loss that the User may incur as a result of someone else using the User’s password or account, either with or without its knowledge. The User may not use anyone else’s account at any time, unless the User has their permission and they are a member of the User’s household, and it may not transfer, sell or otherwise grant access to its account to anyone unless they are a member of the User’s household and agree to be bound by this Agreement.
If the User becomes aware of any authorized use of its account for the Service, the User shall notify Slidebean immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
By providing us with your e-mail address, you consent to receive all required notices and information related to Recurring and such consent to receive communications electronically is valid until you end your relationship with us.
It is Slidebean Inc's priority to ensure the safety and privacy of all its visitors, users and members, especially that of children. Therefore, it is for this reason that the parents of any child under the age of 16 that permit their child or children access to the Slidebean website platform services must create a "family" account, which will certify that the individual creating the "family" account is of 18 years of age and as such, the parent or legal guardian of any child or children registered under the "family" account. As the creator of the "family" account, s/he is thereby granting permission for his/her child or children to access the various services provided, including, but not limited to, message boards, email, and/or instant messaging. It is the parent's and/or legal guardian's responsibility to determine whether the Service and/or content provided are age-appropriate for his/her child.
DATA PROTECTION AND USE
In order to create an account and use the Service, the User will be asked to submit information or Personal Data consciously and voluntarily. Personal Data will be used by Slidebean solely for the purpose of Registration and use of the Service in accordance to this Agreement, and it will never share it with third parties except authorized parties including, but not limited to, business partners that provide joint services with Slidebean, or are contracted by Slidebean for the purpose of compiling statistics relating to the User’s experience with the Service.
Other information, such as the financial data included in the Invoices, including, but not limited to invoice ID, amount, date and type of service provided (“Financial Information”) can be stored by Slidebean for the purposes of adequately providing the Service.
Personal Data and Financial Information are securely stored in Amazon Web Services, if reasonably required to achieve the initial purpose of the information submission by the User and will remain there unless the User requests its account deletion.
The User can request an edit, deletion or export of its account information at any time using the form available at http://slidebean.com/gdpr-form.
The User expressly authorizes the combination of information entered or uploaded for the Service with that of other users. Such combination shall comply with the following parameters: a) the User’s information will not be identifiable, and b) the information will be aggregated with information from other users in order to improve the Service, determine Service malfunctions and/or for customer service purposes.
Slidebean strives to maintain any information submitted by the User under strictly secure circumstances. However, the User acknowledges that despite Slidebean’s reasonable efforts (data encryption, risk assessment, constant threat monitoring, etc.), Slidebean cannot and does not guarantee the absolute security of the Site or the data it processes or uses to provide the Service.
For the purposes of the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), Slidebean shall be considered a Business and/or Third Party, as applicable (Business and Third Party shall have the meanings conferred to these terms under the CCPA). You represent, warrant and covenant that all Personal Information provided or otherwise made available to Slidebean is done so in compliance with applicable law, and that you have provided all necessary and appropriate notices and opt-outs, and otherwise have all necessary and appropriate rights, to enable Slidebean to (i) share any and all Personal Data you provided with any Slidebean company, including Slidebean Inc. and any parent, subsidiary, affiliate, or related company of Slidebean Inc. (collectively, the “Slidebean Companies”), and (ii) use any such Personal Data in connection with any and all Slidebean Companies’ internal operations and functions, including, but not limited to, improving such Slidebean Companies’ products and/or services, operational analytics and reporting, internal financial reporting and analysis, audit functions and archival purposes. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties agree that the sharing of Personal Data between Slidebean Companies does not constitute a “sale” of such Personal Information under the CCPA.
USE OF THE SERVICE
The User’s right to access and use the Service is personal and non-transferable. The User is only entitled to access and use the Service for lawful purposes. The User acknowledges its responsibility to provide Slidebean with complete, accurate contact information, or promptly update Slidebean in the event of any change of such information. The User acknowledges that any misrepresentation or outdated information may compromise the accuracy and effectiveness of the Service, so the User commits to keep its account information up to date, by modifying its profile, when necessary, via the “settings” function available solely to each User, once they type in their account information to login.
The User undertakes to provide Slidebean with accurate, truthful and up-to-date information required for Registration. Slidebean may, at its sole discretion, engage in verification of the authenticity and veracity of the information provided by the User during Registration. If Slidebean determines there are suspicious elements in the information associated with any account, it may temporarily suspend it; or entirely delete it, if it discovers outright false or fake information has been submitted by the User. Slidebean can, at its sole discretion, deny Registration to any user at any time without any justification of its decision.
If Slidebean decides to verify the User’s identity, Slidebean may ask for some information including, but not limited to full address, date of birth, and/or require the User to take steps to confirm ownership of the provided email address.
Slidebean herein reserves the right to access, preserve and/or disclose any User’s account information and/or content if it is requested to do so by law or in good faith belief that any such action is deemed reasonably necessary for:
- Compliance with any legal process;
- Enforcement of the Agreement;
- Responding to any claim that therein contained content is in violation of the rights of any third party;
- Responding to requests for customer service; or
- Protecting the rights, property or the personal safety of Slidebean, its visitors, users and members, including the general public.
The obligations of Slidebean under this Agreement are solely to the User and not to any third party. The User may use the Service for the User’s own business purposes, provided that the User: (a) complies with, and ensures that any other party related to the User complies with the terms of any applicable legislation and any license applicable to the User in any country where the Service is provided; (b) shall remain responsible for: (i) access and use of the Service by any party who uses the User’s account; (ii) all charges incurred in connection with the Service; and (iii) compliance with this Agreement by any party associated with the User, who uses the User’s account with or without its authorization; (c) compliance with the provisions of any software licenses provided with or as part of the Service.
Slidebean will not be liable for any incidents caused by shared access of the User’s account, whether or not permitted by the User.
The User agrees to act responsibly and not to use the Service for any of the following:
- Upload, post, e-mail, transmit, distribute or otherwise publish any message, information, text or other material (“Material”) that may be considered to be unlawful, harmful, libelous, tortious, defamatory, obscene, vulgar, pornographic, indecent, lewd, harassing, threatening, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, abusive, inflammatory, hateful or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable.
- Upload or transmit any Material that would constitute or encourage a criminal offense, violate the rights of any party or that would otherwise create liability or violate any local, state, national or international law;

Slidebean herein reserves the right to include the use of security components that may permit digital information or material to be protected, and that such use of information and/or material is subject to usage guidelines and regulations established by Slidebean or any other content providers supplying content services to Slidebean. The User must refrain from making any attempt to override or circumvent any of the embedded usage rules in the Service. Furthermore, unauthorized reproduction, publication, distribution, or exhibition of any information or materials supplied via the Service, despite whether done so in whole or in part, is expressly prohibited.
NO FINANCIAL PLANNING OR TAX ADVICE
As stated in Section 4 above, the Service is not intended to provide legal, tax or investment planning advice or intended to serve as tax preparation services. The Service is solely intended to broadly assist the User in its financial organization and decision-making.
Every user has a unique situation, and any information or advice obtained through the Service may not be appropriate for its situation. By virtue of the foregoing, the User must, before making any final decisions or implementing any financial strategy, consider obtaining additional information and/or advice from any trusted source, be it its personal accountant or any other financial advisor, who has full visibility and knowledge of its individual circumstances.
The User shall indemnify and hold Slidebean and its partners, members, associates, agents, attorneys, employees, subcontractors and affiliates (collectively, “Affiliated Parties) harmless against any claims, losses, costs and liabilities, including attorney’s fees, made by any third party relating to or arising from or in connection with the User’s use of the Site or the Service in breach of Sections 9, 17 and 19 of this Agreement.
The User agrees not to hold Slidebean responsible for any action, inaction, omission or misstatement made by other users or for any harm arising from the Service.

If any provision of these Agreements is held to be invalid or unenforceable, it will be severed from this Agreement and the remaining provisions will remain in full effect.
This Agreements supersedes all prior oral or written understandings or representations between the parties and constitutes the entire agreement with respect to the subject matter herein.
