INTRODUCTION

These Terms and Conditions (further referred to as “Terms”) determine the use of the online application LARAVEL.IO. The online application consists of the original website, any related websites and the software used to provide the application.

This use of the application includes; The use of the LARAVEL.IO application by a subscriber. The restricted use of the LARAVEL.IO application by third parties authorised by a subscriber with regards to certain aspects of the application. The use of LARAVEL.IO add-ons such as the available widgets. These Terms are to be considered as the legal backbone of the application. Every referral to these Terms, however, is considered to include the additional policies that accompany the former such as the Privacy Policy. If any differences exist between the terms and the specific agreements, the latter prevails unless stated otherwise. We advise and expect our subscribers to take careful notice of these legal documents and all additional information that may accompany. The registration and use of the application, including the mere visiting of the website, implies that Subscriber and authorised user took notice and agrees with these Terms. This creates a contractual relationship between LARAVEL.IO and the Subscriber. Our obligations under this agreement must always be judged with regard to the characteristics of the account.

WHAT DOES LARAVEL.IO OFFER?

LARAVEL.IO aims to offer a place for the Subscriber where they can find answers to tech related questions and find more info about Laravel and related technologies in general. It offers a variety of tools for the Subscriber to interact and keep up to date with their peers.

REGISTRATION AND ACCOUNT

The convincing starts with the registration of an account. We may offer test accounts so that you can be sure that our application provides an added value to your organization. LARAVEL.IO is free to determine the allocation and the extent of this test account and may withdraw or modify at any time this test account.

If you register for an account you agree to the following principles: You have provided accurate, current and complete information as has been demanded during the registration-process. We encourage you to keep this information up-to-date according to those principles. You must ensure the confidentiality of your account, including the confidentiality of your login-data such as the password. Every breach of confidentiality should be notified as soon as possible to the website-administrator. It is strictly forbidden to ask for the login-data of other subscribers and/or login onto one other’s account. It is strictly forbidden to propose on the application in a fraudulent manner. For example the use of a false account and/or providing false information is considered as fraudulent use. Proposing yourself as another (legal or natural) person on the application without the necessary permission may lead to civil and criminal sanctions. Subscriber is always the sole responsible for every use and activity of his account. Subscriber may create additional accounts for employees, contributors and co-operators. Subscriber determines the extent of the rights of these additional accounts and subscriber will always remain responsible for every use of these additional accounts. Needless to say that these additional accounts are governed by these terms. LARAVEL.IO does manage new registrations but not in a pro-active manner. This implies that we will only act upon notifications of a controversial registration. A well-reasoned and founded notification may lead to the temporary and/or perpetual suspension and/or removal of the Subscriber. We preserve ourselves a wide margin of discretion to ensure best quality of our services. The registration of an account is not assimilated with the acquisition of ownership or other proprietary interests to that account. All rights in and to the account are and shall forever be owned by and inure to the benefit of LARAVEL.IO.

CHARACTERISTICS OF LARAVEL.IO

A high level of availability. We want you to experience LARAVEL.IO as trustworthy so we took every reasonable and necessary measure to guarantee a high level of availability. We cannot, however, guarantee the all-time availability, but we commit ourselves to resolve interruptions, repairs and failures within a very short term. This is an obligation of means.

LARAVEL.IO is not responsible for the lack of access that is due to improper behaviour of the Subscriber. It is the sole responsibility of the Subscriber to take the necessary measures that enable the access to our application. LARAVEL.IO is only fully functional and effective if the Subscriber has the necessary pre-specified hardware (browser) software and telecommunication facilities available. The equipment and software used must meet the system requirements as clearly communicated by LARAVEL.IO.

GOOD PERFORMANCE AND SAFE NATURE OF THE APPLICATION

LARAVEL.IO is responsible for the proper operation and safe nature of its application. All reasonable and necessary technical, non-technical, organisational and juridical measures are provided by LARAVEL.IO in order to answer these requirements.

We took for example all reasonable measures to protect the content of subscriber against accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, modification, unauthorized disclosure and access. LARAVEL.IO will create on a regular basis a backup of the data stored in the application, and determines freely the frequency of the backup. It remains the responsibility of the Subscriber to always provide an own backup of the content he has provided. We exclude our liability with regard to the costs of reproduction of mutilated or lost data.

As we depend on the use of Internet, LARAVEL.IO is not able to guarantee that its services are absolutely reliable and safe. Above mentioned obligations are an obligation of means. The Subscriber acknowledges and agrees that LARAVEL.IO can and will never be fully free of imperfections and that not all imperfections can be (re)covered. It is within the responsibility of the subscriber to protect his equipment, software, telecommunications- and Internet-connection against viruses, computer crime and illegal use by third parties.

REGULAR MAINTENANCE, UPDATES AND SUPPORT

We wish to keep the quality of our application high by performing maintenance activities and updates of the application on a regular basis. We may therefore limit at any time the access or use of LARAVEL.IO to the extent necessary for maintenance or to perform modifications or enhancements to the application. The above gives no grounds for compensation on behalf of LARAVEL.IO.

LARAVEL.IO provides the necessary support to the subscribers. We strive to provide clear and conclusive answers to any relevant question or comment so as to contribute to the solution of the problem. Questions and comments should always be made in writing via the email [email protected]

PRIVACY AND DATA

Every subscriber of LARAVEL.IO reveals some information on himself. This amount of information varies as more operations are performed, for example after registration. Depending on the quality of the information, it is possible that an individual can be identified. At that time we are collecting personal data. As we attach great value to privacy and the protection of personal privacy, we have taken the effort to inquire you on the processing of personal data in the most comprehensive manner. We kindly refer you to our Privacy Policy.

We also expect that our Subscribers value these principles in high standard. Subscribers can and will use LARAVEL.IO to process personal information on their own contacts. Subscriber will be the data controller and LARAVEL.IO will be a mere processor. It is the sole responsibility of the subscriber to process this information in accordance with applicable privacy legislations!

ACCEPTABLE USE

We would like to provide a safe and sound application but we need your help to succeed in our mission. You can help us out by just behaving in a sentiment of good faith. We do require you to refrain from any action that may jeopardise LARAVEL.IO.

LARAVEL.IO reserves a large discretion and may notify subscribers when touching boundaries. Subscribers should refrain from practices that may circumvent the business-model of LARAVEL.IO. Subscribers should not violate our rules regarding content. This list tries to be complete but is far from exhaustive. The facilitation and encouragement of such violations is also a violation. LARAVEL.IO preserves itself a large margin of discretion when considering behaviour of subscribers. Any subscriber-action that can be considered as not ‘in good faith’ is presumed to fall within this margin of discretion. Non-compliance may also lead to the Subscriber’s liability. LARAVEL.IO will help as much as possible any wronged party, for example by providing the necessary contact details.

We guarantee you that we only extract content that is necessary and useful for the application. Subscriber is always the sole responsible with regard to the content he may add to his account, including the extracted content. There is however one clear boundary to the added content: the content should be appropriate with regards to the aim and intentions of LARAVEL.IO. This is a broad definition but will not pose a problem for a Subscriber in good faith. We have a wide discretion when assessing the content. With regards to certain topics we would like to be clear in advance that we do not accept such content: Your content should not refer to or be the result of unlawful, misleading, malicious, or discriminatory activities.

In every case, LARAVEL.IO is not liable for: Any damages inflicted by force majeure. Force majeure is every extra-ordinary event or circumstance beyond the control of the parties that prevents LARAVEL.IO from fulfilling its obligations. This includes the situation where LARAVEL.IO is not able to perform due to its own suppliers. LARAVEL.IO is not liable for damages due to other causes that are foreign to LARAVEL.IO, such as actions or omissions of third parties that are characterised by a particular ingenuity.

This includes damages that LARAVEL.IO may suffer such as loss of income, loss of reputation, etc. The subscriber is held to safeguard LARAVEL.IO from any judicial procedures relating to this.

The liability of LARAVEL.IO should be regarded in accordance with the valid legal interpretations. This should anyway be in the interpretation that leans the most towards this General Subscriber Agreement.

DURATION AND TERMINATION

These conditions remain valid until termination by LARAVEL.IO or Subscriber. The termination of the agreement implies that the Subscriber no longer has access to his account on LARAVEL.IO. Subscriber acknowledges and accepted that the termination does not give rise to any liability on the part of LARAVEL.IO nor lead to a refund of the paid fees. Termination shall be without prejudice to the payment of any due amounts.

We preserve the right to deactivate your account when we notice inactivity for more than two (2) months. The deactivation is interrupted during the premium account. The deactivation of a Subscriber does not automatically imply that the account and the relevant content are immediately and irrevocably removed. LARAVEL.IO undertakes the promise not to remove this content for at least two (2) months following the deactivation.

LARAVEL.IO has the right to sanction violations to this agreement, and by extension any behaviour of a Subscriber that is contrary to the good faith. We preserve ourselves a wide margin of discretion, both with regard to the violating behaviour as with regard to the appropriate sanction. In order to provide you with some idea on the sanctioning, following sanctions are regarded as most common; Temporary or perpetual suspension, modification or deletion of the account; Temporary or perpetual deletion of content; Inaccessibility of certain content for the public; Sanctioning does not require any or comprehensive reasoning and can be done without prior notification. There’s no time limit between the defective behaviour and the sanction. We can take the necessary technical measures to avoid circumvention of sanctions.

FUTURE CHANGES

LARAVEL.IO is still looking for new opportunities. That’s why our services are always evolving and we may at all times change the form and nature of our services.

We may even decide to end LARAVEL.IO and its services (permanently or temporarily) at all times. LARAVEL.IO may transfer its obligations onto a third party. LARAVEL.IO preserves the right to unilaterally change these terms at all time. Every unilateral change will be communicated on a clear and efficient manner towards the Subscribers and will be applied at renewal of each license period, at latest three months after the communication. Subscribers have a positive obligation to take notice on a regular basis of the terms and conditions, especially in the case of a new change. There is no possibility to continue the use of LARAVEL.IO under the old conditions if you do not agree with any substantial or essential changes. Subscriber is in that case free to cancel your account with us without further ado. Subscriber may apply for a pro rata refund of the paid fee.

No other deviations regarding the Terms and the Privacy Policy are considered to exist without an explicit agreed and written proof. No other general conditions of the Subscribers are considered applicable. The (sub) titles of these documents have a mere indicative value and do not grant specific rights to the Subscribers. The mere invalidity or inapplicability of one or more single clauses does not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions. LARAVEL.IO has the right of first initiative to change the invalid or inapplicable clauses unilaterally.

FINAL PROVISIONS

This agreement is exclusively governed by Belgian legislation. Barring the rules of Brussels I- regulation and other applicable law, the courts of Antwerp (Belgium) are presumed competent. Parties agree to a cooling off period of sixty (60) days in which they try to solve their dispute informally before initiating any court proceeding. The cooling off period commences upon the receiving of a written notification.

LARAVEL.IO is an active supranational actor, which implies that other jurisdictions may rule on the clauses of this agreement and a different interpretation may be applied. LARAVEL.IO wishes to ensure that in such case these agreements should be interpreted strict within the legal margin of interpretation.
