17 minutes read

1. Introduction

Applicable Terms. Thanks for using NGO.do Tools. NGO.do Tools is a service provided by NGO.DO ("NGO.DO", "we" or "us"). Your use of NGO.do Tools and the apps (including Android Instant Apps), games, music, movies, books, magazines, or other digital content or services (referred to as "Content") available through it is subject to these NGO.do Tools Terms of Service and the NGO.do Tools Terms & Service("NGO.DO ToS") ( together referred to as the "Terms"). NGO.do Tools is a "Service" as described in the NGO.DO ToS. If there is any conflict between the NGO.do Tools Terms of Service and the NGO.DO ToS, the NGO.do Tools Terms of Service shall prevail.

2. Your Use of NGO.do Tools

Access to and Use of Content. You may use NGO.do Tools to browse, locate, view, stream, or download Content for your mobile, computer, tv, watch, or other supported device ("Device"). To use NGO.do Tools, you will need a Device that meets the system and compatibility requirements for the relevant Content, working Internet access, and compatible software. The availability of Content and features will vary between countries and not all Content or features may be available in your country. Some Content may be available to share with family members. Content may be offered by NGO.DO or made available by third-parties not affiliated with NGO.DO. NGO.DO is not responsible for and does not endorse any Content made available through NGO.do Tools that originates from a source other than NGO.DO.

Age Restrictions. In order to use NGO.do Tools, you must have a valid NGO.DO account ("NGO.DO Account"), subject to the following age restrictions. If you are considered a minor in your country, you must have your parent or legal guardian's permission to use NGO.do Tools and to accept the Terms. You must comply with any additional age restrictions that might apply for the use of specific Content or features on NGO.do Tools. Family managers and family members must meet these additional requirements as well.

Third-Party Fees. You are responsible for any access or data fees incurred from third parties (such as your Internet provider or mobile carrier) in connection with your use and viewing of Content and NGO.do Tools.

Updates. NGO.do Tools, related support libraries, or Content may need to be updated, for example, for bug fixes, enhanced functions, missing plug-ins and new versions (collectively, "Updates"). Such Updates may be necessary in order for you to use NGO.do Tools or to access, download, or use Content. By agreeing to these Terms and using NGO.do Tools, you agree to receive such Updates automatically. You may be able to manage Updates to certain Content via Settings in NGO.do Tools. If it is determined, however, that the Update will fix a critical security vulnerability related to the Content, the Update may be completed irrespective of your Update settings in NGO.do Tools or your Device. If another app store attempts to update Content that was initially downloaded from NGO.do Tools, you may receive a warning or such updates may be prevented entirely.

Information about You. NGO.DO's privacy policies explain how we treat your personal data and protect your privacy when using NGO.do Tools. NGO.DO may need to provide your personal information, such as your name and email address, to Providers for the purposes of processing your transactions or provisioning Content to you. Providers agree to use this information in accordance with their privacy policies.

If you are part of a family group on NGO.do Tools, your family members in the family group will be able to see certain information about you. If you are the family manager of a family group on NGO.do Tools, family members you invite to join the family group will see your name, photo, and e-mail address. If you join a family group as a family member, other family members will be able to see your name, photo, and e-mail address. Your family manager may also see your age and will see a record of all purchases you make using the designated family payment method, including a description of the Content purchased. If Content is available for family sharing and you share it with your family group, then all family members will be able to access the Content and see that you purchased it.

Unauthorized Access to Accounts. You must keep your account details secure and must not share them with anyone else. You must not collect or harvest any personal data of any user of NGO.do Tools or of any user of other NGO.DO Services via NGO.do Tools, including account names.

Disabled Accounts. If NGO.DO disables access to your account in accordance with the Terms (for example if you violate the Terms), you may be prevented from accessing NGO.do Tools, your account details or any files or other Content that is stored with your account. See the Help Center for more information. If you are the family manager of a family on NGO.do Tools and NGO.DO disables access to your account, your family members may lose access to family features requiring a family group, such as a family payment method, family subscriptions, or Content shared by family members. If you are a family member of a family on NGO.do Tools and NGO.DO disables your account, your family members will lose access to Content you have shared with them.

Malware protection. To protect you against malicious third party software, URLs, and other security issues, NGO.DO may receive information about your Device's network connections, potentially harmful URLs, the operating system, and apps installed on your Device through NGO.do Tools or from other sources. NGO.DO may warn you if it considers an app or URL to be unsafe, or NGO.DO may remove or block its installation on your Device if it is known to be harmful to devices, data or users. You can choose to disable some of these protections in the settings on your Device, however, NGO.DO may continue to receive information about apps installed through NGO.do Tools, and apps installed on your Device from other sources may continue to be analyzed for security issues without sending information to NGO.DO.

Android Instant Apps. When you click on a link on your Device, NGO.do Tools may check if an applicable instant app exists and, if so, open the link within the instant app. Any code needed to run the portions of the instant app you access will be downloaded to your Device and kept on it temporarily. App details for an instant app can be found in the NGO.do Tools store. Android Instant Apps data and settings are synced to devices signed in with your NGO.DO account. You can choose to disable Android Instant Apps in the settings on your Device.

Changes to these Terms. If the Terms change, you will be given at least 30 days notice, and the new Terms will be effective after such notice period. Your continued use of NGO.do Tools following such notice period will indicate your acceptance of the new Terms. The new Terms will apply to your use of all Content (including Content you have installed or purchased in the past) and all subsequent installs or purchases. If you do not agree with such changes, you will be given the opportunity to download the Content you previously purchased or installed and terminate your use of the NGO.do Tools. You may continue to view that copy of the Content on your Devices in accordance with the last version of the Terms that you accepted.

3. Purchases and Payments

Free Content. NGO.DO may allow you to download, view or use Content free of charge on NGO.do Tools. Additional limitations may apply to your access and use of certain free Content.

Purchase of Content. When you buy Content on or using NGO.do Tools you will enter into a separate sale contract based on these Terms (as applicable) with the seller which will be either:

(a) NGO.DO; or

(b) provider of the Content (the "Provider"), including where NGO.DO is acting as an agent for the Provider.

The separate sale contract is in addition to these Terms.

For sales where NGO.DO is acting as an agent for the Provider, the statement, in the NGO.DO ToS, that the NGO.DO ToS "do not create any third party beneficiary rights", does not apply to your use of NGO.do Tools.

Your contract for the purchase and use of Content is completed once you receive the email from NGO.DO confirming your purchase of that Content, and performance of this contract begins as soon as the purchase is complete.

Pre-orders. When you place a pre-order for Content, your contract for the purchase and use of that item is completed when the Content is made available to you, and you will be charged for the purchase at that time. You can cancel your pre-order at any time up to the point at which the Content becomes available to you. We will need to cancel your pre-order if the Content is withdrawn from sale through NGO.do Tools before it is made available and we reserve the right to cancel your order in the event the price changes before your order is fulfilled.

Family Payment Method. If you are the family manager of a family group on NGO.do Tools, you will be required to set up a valid family payment method for your family members to use to purchase Content on NGO.do Tools and within apps. You will be responsible for all of your family members' purchases of Content using the family payment method. If a family group is deleted, or a family member leaves the family group, you may be charged for pending purchases made by family members using the family payment method.

NGO.DO Payments. In order to purchase Content through NGO.do Tools, you must have a NGO.DO Payments account and agree to the NGO.DO Payments Terms of Service. The NGO.DO Payments Privacy Notice applies whenever you purchase Content using a NGO.DO Payments account. You are responsible for all amounts payable associated with purchases made through NGO.do Tools on your NGO.DO Payments account.

Other Payment Processing Methods. NGO.DO may make available to you various payment processing methods in addition to NGO.DO Payments to facilitate the purchase of Content through NGO.do Tools. You must abide by any relevant terms and conditions or other legal agreement, whether with NGO.DO or a third party, that governs your use of a given payment processing method. NGO.DO may add or remove payment processing methods at its sole discretion. You are solely responsible for all amounts payable associated with purchases you make on NGO.do Tools.

Eligibility for Carrier Billing. In order to determine your eligibility to have purchases of Content that you make through your Devices billed to your network provider's account, when you create a NGO.do Tools account on a Device, we will send identifiers of your Device, e.g., subscriber ID and SIM card serial number, to your network provider. To permit this you will need to accept the network provider's terms of service. The network provider may send us your billing address information. We will hold and use this information in accordance with NGO.DO's Privacy Policies and NGO.DO Payments Privacy Notice.

Pricing. Pricing and availability of all Content displayed through NGO.do Tools are subject to change at any time prior to purchase.

Taxes. "Taxes" means any duties, customs fees, levies or taxes (other than income tax) associated with the sale of Content, including any related penalties or interest. You are responsible for any Taxes and must pay for Content without any reduction for Taxes. If the seller of Content or NGO.DO is obligated to collect or pay Taxes, the Taxes will be charged to you. You must comply with any and all applicable tax laws, including the reporting and payment of any Taxes arising in connection with your use of NGO.do Tools or the purchase of Content on or through NGO.do Tools. The reporting and payment of any such applicable Taxes are your responsibility.

Subscriptions. Subscriptions are automatically charged each billing period (whether weekly, monthly, annually, or another period), and you may be charged no more than 24 hours before the beginning of each billing period.

(a) Trials Periods. When you subscribe to Content for a price, you may receive access to the subscription benefits at no charge for a specified trial period, after which you will be charged until you cancel your subscription. To avoid being charged, you must cancel before the end of the trial period. Once you cancel your trial, you will immediately lose access to the relevant app and any subscription privileges unless otherwise specified. Access to such trial periods may be limited to a certain number of trials for each user during a given period, or other restrictions.

(b) Cancellations. You may cancel a subscription at any time before the end of the applicable billing period as described in the Help Center, and the cancellation will apply to the next period. For example, if you purchase a monthly subscription, you may cancel that subscription at any time during any month of the subscription, and the subscription will be cancelled as of the following month. You will not receive a refund for the current billing period, except as otherwise provided in NGO.do Tools's Refund Policy (for example where Content is defective). NGO.do Tools Newsstand subscriptions: You will continue to receive Content and Updates (if applicable) of the relevant subscription during the remainder of the current billing period. After that billing period ends, you will retain access to previously delivered magazine issues, but your access to paid news content will terminate at the end of the billing period during which your subscription is cancelled. If you cancel during the free trial period, you will retain access to the magazine issues that you access during a free trial period, but you will not retain access to news content. NGO.do Tools Music subscriptions: If you cancel your NGO.do Tools Music subscription, you will continue to have access to NGO.do Tools Music subscription Content during the remainder of the current billing period; however, your access will terminate at the end of the billing period during which your subscription is cancelled. If you cancel your NGO.do Tools Music subscription during a free trial period, you will not retain access to the NGO.do Tools Music subscription Content that you accessed during a free trial period.

(c) Price Changes. When you purchase a subscription, you will initially be charged at the rate applicable at the time of your agreement to subscribe. If the price of the subscription increases later, NGO.DO will notify you. The increase will apply to the next payment due from you after the notice, provided that you have been given at least 10 days' prior notice before the charge is made. If you are given less than 10 days' prior notice, the price increase will not apply until the payment after the next payment due. If you do not wish to pay the increased price for a subscription, you may cancel the subscription as described in the Cancellations section of these Terms, and you will not be charged further amounts for the subscription, provided you have notified us before the end of the current billing period. Where the Provider increases the price of a subscription and consent is required, NGO.DO may cancel your subscription unless you agree to the new price. If your subscription is cancelled and you later decide to re-subscribe, you will be charged at the then current subscription rate.

4. Rights and Restrictions

License to Use Content. After completing a transaction or paying the applicable fees for Content, you will have the non-exclusive right, solely as expressly permitted in these Terms and associated policies, to store, access, view, use, and display copies of the applicable Content on your Devices or as otherwise authorized as part of the Service for your personal, non-commercial use only. All rights, title and interest in NGO.do Tools and Content not expressly granted to you in the Terms are reserved. Your use of apps and games may be governed by the additional terms and conditions of the end user license agreement between you and the Provider.

Violation of License Terms. If you violate any of the Terms, your rights under this license will immediately terminate, and NGO.DO may terminate your access to NGO.do Tools, the Content or your NGO.DO Account without refund to you.

Restrictions: You may not:

• display (in part or in whole) the Content as part of any public performance or display even if no fee is charged except (a) where such use would not constitute a copyright infringement or violate any other applicable right or (b) as specifically permitted and only in the exact manner provided.

• sell, rent, lease, redistribute, broadcast, transmit, communicate, modify, sublicense, transfer, assign any Content to any third party including with regard to any downloads of Content that you may obtain through NGO.do Tools except as specifically permitted and only in the exact manner provided.

• use NGO.do Tools or any Content in conjunction with any stream-ripping, stream capture or similar software to record or create a copy of any Content that is presented to you in streaming format.

• use Content as part of any service for sharing, lending or multi-person use, or for the purpose of any other institution, except as specifically permitted and only in the exact manner provided.

• attempt to, or assist, authorize or encourage others to circumvent, disable or defeat any of the security features or components that protect, obfuscate or otherwise restrict access to any Content or NGO.do Tools.

• remove any watermarks, labels or other legal or proprietary notices included in any Content, or attempt to modify any Content obtained through NGO.do Tools, including any modification for the purpose of disguising or changing any indications of the ownership or source of Content.

Third-Party Provisions. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms, the third parties who license their Content to NGO.DO are intended third party beneficiaries under these Terms solely with respect to the specific provisions of these Terms that directly concern their Content ("Third-Party Provisions"), and solely for the purpose of enabling such third parties to enforce their rights in such Content. For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in these Terms confers a third-party beneficiary right upon any party, with respect to any provision that falls outside the Third Party Provisions, which includes but is not limited to any provisions or agreements incorporated by reference, or that may be referenced without incorporation, in these Terms.

Play Policies. Posting reviews on NGO.do Tools is subject to the following policies. If you want to report abuse or other content violations, click here.

Defective Content. Once Content is available to you through your account, you should check the Content as soon as reasonably possible to ensure that it functions and performs as stated, and notify us or Provider as soon as reasonably possible if you find any errors or defect. See the NGO.do Tools Refund Policy for more information.

Removal or Unavailability of Content. Subject to the Terms, Content that you purchase or install will be available to you through NGO.do Tools for the period selected by you, in the case of a purchase for a rental period, and in other cases as long as NGO.DO has the right to make such Content available to you. In certain cases (for example if NGO.DO loses the relevant rights, a service or Content is discontinued, there are critical security issues, or there are breaches of applicable terms or the law), NGO.DO may remove from your Device or cease providing you with access to certain Content that you have purchased. For Content sold by NGO.DO, you may be given notice of any such removal or cessation, when possible. If you are not able to download a copy of the Content before such removal or cessation, NGO.DO may offer you either (a) a replacement of the Content if possible or (b) a full or partial refund of the price of the Content. If NGO.DO issues you a refund, the refund shall be your sole remedy.

Multiple Accounts. If you have multiple NGO.DO Accounts with different user names, in some cases you may transfer Content out of an account and into another account, provided you are the owner of each such account and provided NGO.DO has enabled a feature of the relevant service allowing such transfers.

Dangerous Activities. None of the Services or Content are intended for use in the operation of nuclear facilities, life support systems, emergency communications, aircraft navigation or communication systems, air traffic control systems, or any other such activities in which case the failure of the Services or Content could lead to death, personal injury, or severe physical or environmental damage.
