BY ACCESSING OR USING OUR SITES AND OUR SERVICES, YOU HEREBY AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS AND ALL TERMS INCORPORATED HEREIN BY REFERENCE. IF YOU DO NOT EXPRESSLY AGREE TO ALL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, THEN PLEASE DO NOT ACCESS OR USE OUR SITES OR OUR SERVICES.
The following Terms of Service Agreement (the “TOS”) is a legally binding agreement that shall govern the relationship with our users and others which may interact or interface with Planogram, Inc., dba Growbase (“Growbase”) and our subsidiaries and affiliates, in association with the use of the Growbase website (the “Site”), and all related services offered by Growbase, whether provided through the Site, mobile application, web application, social media, or otherwise (collectively, the “Service”).
Any and all visitors to our site, despite whether they are registered or not, shall be deemed as “users” of the herein contained Services provided for the purpose of this TOS. Once an individual register for our Services, through the process of creating an account, the user shall then be considered a “member”.
The user and/or member acknowledges and agrees that the Services provided and made available through our website and applications, which may include some mobile applications and that those applications may be made available on various social media networking sites and numerous other platforms and downloadable programs, are the sole property of Growbase. At its discretion, Growbase may offer additional website Services and/or products, or update, modify or revise any current content and Services, and this Agreement shall apply to any and all additional Services and/or products and any and all updated, modified or revised Services unless otherwise stipulated. Growbase does hereby reserve the right to cancel and cease offering any of the aforementioned Services and/or products. You, as the end-user and/or member, acknowledge, accept and agree that Growbase shall not be held liable for any such updates, modifications, revisions, suspensions or discontinuance of any of our Services and/or products. Your continued use of the Services provided, after such posting of any updates, changes, and/or modifications shall constitute your acceptance of such updates, changes and/or modifications, and as such, frequent review of this Agreement and any and all applicable terms and policies should be made by you to ensure you are aware of all terms and policies currently in effect. Should you not agree to the updated, modified, revised, or modified terms, you must stop using the provided Services.
Furthermore, the user and/or member understands, acknowledges and agrees that the Services offered shall be provided “AS IS” and as such Growbase shall not assume any responsibility or obligation for the timeliness, missed delivery, deletion and/or any failure to store user content, communication or personalization settings.
To register and become a member, you must be 18 years of age and have the legal capacity to enter into and form a legally binding contract. In addition, you must be in good standing and not an individual that has been previously barred from receiving Growbase’s Services under the laws and statutes of the United States or other applicable jurisdiction. Furthermore, the registering party hereby acknowledges, understands, and agrees to:
If anyone knowingly provides any information of a false, untrue, inaccurate or incomplete nature, Growbase will have sufficient grounds and rights to suspend or terminate the member in violation of this aspect of the Agreement, and as such refuse any and all current or future use of Growbase Services, or any portion thereof.
It is Growbase’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 13 that permit their child or children access to the Growbase 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 any of the Services and/or content provided are age-appropriate for his/her child.
You shall be responsible for maintaining the secrecy and confidentiality of your password and for all activities that transpire on or within your account. It shall be your responsibility to notify Growbase immediately if you notice any unauthorized access or use of your account or password or any other breach of security. Growbase shall not be held liable for any loss and/or damage arising from any failure to comply with this term and/or condition of the TOS. You agree to be responsible for all actions arising from your account as a member.
As a member of the Site, you herein acknowledge, understand and agree that all information, text, software, data, photographs, music, video, messages, tags or any other content, whether it is publicly or privately posted and/or transmitted, is the expressed sole responsibility of the individual from whom the content originated. In short, this means that you are solely responsible for any and all content posted, uploaded, emailed, transmitted or otherwise made available by way of Growbase Services, and as such, we do not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of such content. It is expressly understood that by use of our Services, you may be exposed to content including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any content posted, and/or any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any content posted, emailed, transmitted or otherwise made available by Growbase.

Growbase 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 Growbase or any other content providers supplying content services to Growbase.

Furthermore, you state and pledge that you:
Growbase shall not lay claim to ownership of any content submitted by any visitor, member or user, or make such content available for inclusion on our website Services. Growbase may use user’s and member’s brand logo for promotional purposes.
Growbase provides an area/email for our users and members to contribute feedback to our website. When you submit ideas, documents, suggestions and/or proposals (“Contributions”) to our site, you acknowledge and agree that:
All users and/or members herein agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Growbase, our subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, officers, partners and/or licensors for any claim, liability, cost, expense, or demand (which may include, but is not limited to, reasonable attorney fees) made by any third party, which may arise from any content a member or user of our site may submit, post, modify, transmit or otherwise make available through our Services (including the Payment Platform Services), the use of Growbase Services or your connection with these Services, your violations of the Terms of Service and/or your violation of any such rights of another person.
The member or user herein agrees not to replicate, duplicate, copy, trade, sell, resell nor exploit for any commercial reason any part, use of, or access to Growbase’s sites.
You herein acknowledge that Growbase may set up any such practices and/or limits regarding the use of our Services, without limitation of the maximum number of days that any email, message posting or any other uploaded content shall be retained by Growbase, nor the maximum number of email messages that may be sent and/or received by any member, the maximum volume or size of any email message that may be sent from or may be received by an account on our Service, the maximum disk space allowable that shall be allocated on Growbase’s servers on the member’s behalf, and/or the maximum number of times and/or duration that any member may access our Services in a given period of time.

Furthermore, Growbase shall reserve the right to modify, alter and/or update these general practices and limits at our discretion.
Growbase shall reserve the right at any time it may deem fit, to modify, alter and or discontinue, whether temporarily or permanently, our service, or any part thereof, with or without prior notice. In addition, we shall not be held liable to you or to any third party for any such alteration, modification, suspension and/or discontinuance of our Services, or any part thereof.
Some Services and account types are available only on a subscription basis (the “Subscription”). By signing up for a Subscription through Growbase (whether on the Site, through iTunes, or otherwise), you agree to be billed the then-current amount at the scheduled interval, as indicated upon creation of the Subscription. Subscriptions will automatically renew at the then-current rate unless terminated in accordance with the TERMINATION section of this TOS.
This section applies if you use sellit’s Payment Platform feature (the “Payment Platform Services”). Growbase, as a “Connect Platform” (see below), connects sellit users to third-party, online payment services provided by Stripe, integrating Stripe’s online payment services into sellit for enabled transactions (see below). To use the Payment Platform Services, you must (a) agree to these TOS, (b) enter a Stripe Services Agreement with Stripe to establish a Stripe Account, (c) connect your Stripe Account to Growbase by entering a Stripe Connected Account Agreement with Stripe (defining, among other things, “Connect Platform”), and (d) keep both Stripe Agreements in effect. The two Stripe Agreements create a direct relationship between you and Stripe; Growbase is not a party to that relationship (Stripe and Growbase are independent entities). Growbase is not responsible for and has no liability to you for Stripe’s performance under the Stripe Agreements. You represent and warrant to Growbase that you have read, understand, and agree to comply with both Stripe Agreements (including but not limited to the “Restricted Businesses” provisions as defined by Stripe for the jurisdiction where you are located) and you agree to Growbase performing the actions Growbase is required to or deems advisable to enable effective use of Stripe’s services as an element of the Payment Platform Services. If you do not enter and keep in effect both Stripe Agreements, or if Stripe terminates either of the Stripe Agreements with you, Growbase may terminate or suspend your access to the Payment Platform Services, in Growbase’s discretion, without liability to you.
Payment Platform Services are provided when you (a) link your Instagram account to a Growbase-controlled domain, and (b) enable the “buy” function for an active post in your sellit gallery. When you do that, you instruct Growbase to engage in the “Activity” (as that term is used in the Stripe Connected Account Agreement) of providing a secure payment connection to your Connected Account with Stripe so that a customer who initiates capital transaction with you through such a link can complete the capital transaction, and you authorize Growbase to collect a fee for that Activity. A fee of 2% of the gross amount of the transaction will be paid to Growbase on your behalf by Stripe. The sellit platform will only be responsible for presenting products and pricing as dictated by you, and various anonymized traffic analytics. Growbase will have no access to, nor will it be responsible for, an individual purchaser’s data including their Instagram handle, email or any payment or shipping information. You alone are responsible for all order fulfillment, product returns and refunds, customer inquiries and other merchant-customer issues. Growbase will only access the Data (see Stripe Services Agreement) Stripe deems necessary to host a Connected Account as part of our Platform Services. You authorize Growbase to perform the Payment Platform Services, including but not limited to the Activity.
As a member of Growbase, you may terminate your account (including your Subscription), associated email address and/or access to our Services by submitting a cancellation or termination request by contacting us (https://contact.Growbase.com/). If you created an account through iTunes, you may only cancel your account through iTunes.
IF YOU TERMINATE YOUR ACCOUNT DURING A SUBSCRIPTION, YOU WILL CONTINUE TO BE BILLED FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE SUBSCRIPTION AND WILL HAVE ACCESS TO YOUR ACCOUNT UNTIL THE END OF THE SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD, UPON WHICH TIME YOUR SUBSCRIPTION AND ACCOUNT ACCESS WILL CEASE.
IN ORDER TO AVOID RENEWAL OF A SUBSCRIPTION, YOU MUST CANCEL YOUR ACCOUNT AT LEAST 24 HOURS BEFORE THE SCHEDULED RENEWAL.
The terms of any refund policy found on the website or iTunes (to the extent applicable to your iTunes created account) will take precedence over this section.
As a member, you agree that Growbase may, without any prior written notice, immediately suspend, terminate, discontinue and/or limit your account, any email associated with your account, and access to any of our Services at any time and for any reason.
Furthermore, you herein agree that any and all terminations, suspensions, discontinuances, and or limitations of access for cause shall be made at our sole discretion and that we shall not be liable to you or any other third party with regards to the termination of your account, associated email address and/or access to any of our Services.
The termination of your account with Growbase shall include any and/or all of the following:

Moreover, you herein agree that Growbase shall not be held responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any nature or manner incurred as a direct result of any such dealings or as a result of the presence of such advertisers on our website.
