Welcome to Cardinbox!

Thanks for using our products and services (“Services”). These Services are provided by Cardinbox Technologies Pvt. Ltd. (“Cardinbox”).
By using our Services, you are agreeing to these terms. Please read them carefully.

Our Services are specialized, so sometimes additional terms or product requirements (including age requirements) may apply. Additional terms will be available with the relevant Services, and those additional terms become part of your agreement with us if you use those Services.

Language.

This agreement is written in English.

Using our Services.

You must follow any policies made available to you within the Services.

Don’t misuse our Services. For example, don’t interfere with our Services or try to access them using a method other than the interface and the instructions that we provide. You may use our Services only as permitted by law, including applicable export and re­-export control laws and regulations. We may suspend or stop providing our Services to you if you do not comply with our terms or policies or if we are investigating suspected misconduct.

Using our Services does not give you ownership of any intellectual property rights in our Services or the content you access. You may not use content from our Services unless you obtain permission from its owner or are otherwise permitted by law. These terms do not grant you the right to use any branding or logos used in our Services. Don’t remove, obscure, or alter any legal notices displayed in or along with our Services.

Our Services may display some content that is not ours. This content is the sole responsibility of the entity that makes it available. We may review content to determine whether it is illegal or violates our policies, and we may remove or refuse to display content that we reasonably believe violates our policies or the law. But that does not necessarily mean that we review content, so please don’t assume that we do.

In connection with your use of the Services, we may send you service announcements, administrative messages, and other information. You may opt out of some of those communications by writing to us at reach.us@cardinbox.com Subject: Announcement Issues.

Some of our Services are available on mobile devices (means and includes any portable device through which Cardinbox can be accessed either through the website or the mobile application). Do not use such Services in a way that distracts you and prevents you from obeying traffic or safety laws.

Your Cardinbox Account.

You necessarily need a Cardinbox Account in order to use our Services. You may create your own Cardinbox Account, or an administrator, such as your employer or a person belonging to an educational institution, may assign an Account to you. If you are using a Cardinbox Account assigned to you by an administrator, different or additional terms may apply and your administrator may be able to access or disable your account subject to the terms of usage / service contained in the agreement entered into specifically with your employer / educational institution for this purpose.

To protect your Cardinbox Account, keep your password confidential. You are responsible for the activity that happens on or through your Cardinbox Account. In order to keep your account secure, we particularly remind you of certain measures including but not limited to safekeeping your password, installing anti-­virus software, changing your password regularly, and logging out safely after use. If your account or password is stolen, you shall assume full responsibility for all the consequences arising therefrom unless it is caused by our intentional act or gross negligence. Try not to reuse your Cardinbox Account password on third-­party applications. If you learn of any unauthorized use of your password or Cardinbox Account, please contact us immediately at ​reach.us@cardinbox.com ​Subject: Account Issues.

Privacy and Copyright Protection.

Our privacy policies explain how we treat your personal data and protect your privacy when you use our Services. By using our Services, you agree that Cardinbox can use such data in accordance with our privacy policies.
We respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement and terminate accounts of repeat infringers according to the process set out in the Indian Copyright (Amendment) Act, 2012 and the Rules thereto, if any.
We provide information to help copyright holders manage their intellectual property online. If you think somebody is violating your copyrights and want to notify us, you can get in touch with us at reach.us@cardinbox.com ​Subject: Copyright Issues.

Your Content in our Services.

Our Services allow you to upload, submit, store, send or receive content. You retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that you hold in that content. In short, what belongs to you stays yours.

When you upload, submit, store, send or receive content to or through our Services, you give Cardinbox (and those we work with) a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes we make so that your content works better with our Services), communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such content. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating, promoting, and improving our Services, and to develop new ones. This license continues even if you stop using our Services. Our Services may offer you ways to access and remove content that has been provided to that Service. Also, in our Services, there are terms or settings that narrow the scope of our use of the content submitted in those Services. Make sure you have the necessary rights to grant us this license for any content that you submit to our Services.

Our automated systems analyze your content (including emails) to provide you personally relevant product features. This analysis occurs as the content is sent, received, and when it is stored.

If you have a Cardinbox Account, we may display your Profile name, Profile photo, and actions you take on Cardinbox or on third-­party applications connected to your Cardinbox Account in our Services, including displaying in ads and other commercial contexts. We will respect the choices you make to limit sharing or visibility settings in your Cardinbox Account. For example, you can choose your settings so your name and photo do not appear in an ad.

You can find more information about how Cardinbox uses and stores content in the privacy policy. If you submit feedback or suggestions about our Services, we may use your feedback or suggestions without any obligation to you.

Third Party Services.

In Cardinbox, we allow you to invoke services provided by third parties such as Google Maps, LinkedIn, or any email service provider. For related rules please refer to Terms of Service and Privacy Policy issued by those third parties. We hold no direct or indirect liabilities for any problem or damage incurred by you as a result of using third party services.
