FindWAtt Terms of Service
Revised: April 11, 2017
Welcome – we’re delighted to provide you with this (currently) free service and look forward to getting your feedback. We hope you will find our analyses of your Product Data insightful and useful in improving your content, with the result that you can better find and inform consumers, and SELL MORE!
Terms of Service (TOS) are typically written by lawyers and can be intimidating and impenetrable to many users. So, we’ve done 2 things in writing our TOS:
- We’ve written in plain English the terms that we think most users will care first and foremost about (their data and contact details), and placed them immediately below under Key Provisions.
- Alongside the “Necessary Tedious Legalese” below, you’ll see that we’ve provided a “plain English” version.
We encourage you to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns, or would like help understanding these Terms of Service.
Your Product Data
By submitting your catalog to our service, you grant us a perpetual license to:
- Use your catalog to provide you with services and to continually refine our algorithms.
- Use up to 1% or 100 (whichever is greater) of the products in your catalog as anecdotal, anonymous examples.
- Create and use derivative works such as charts, which summarize your data in an abstract manner.
Your Personal/Company Information & Relationship with Us
- You agree to provide account information that reflects who you are, as well as your interest in and use of our Services.
- Our lawyers have thrown so many “what ifs” and scenarios at us that we’ve reluctantly submitted to their demands that we not give you blanket assurances about the use of your contact details, with the exception that we promise not to sell them. However, we can assure you of our intent to act in an honest, transparent and professional manner and to not abuse your trust in any way.
These Terms of Service constitute a legally binding agreement made between you, whether personal or on behalf of an entity (“you,” or “your”) and Attricorp, Inc. dba FINDWATT (“we,” “us” or “our”), concerning your access and use of https://findwatt.com, related websites as well as any other media form, media channel, mobile website or mobile application related, linked, or otherwise connected thereto (collectively, the “Site”). We offer and make available various services, features, content, information, software, software as a service, and other materials via the Site (“Services”). You agree that by accessing the Site and/or Services, you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by all of these Terms of Service. YOUR USE OF THIS SITE AND THE SERVICES IS CONDITIONED UPON YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS OF SERVICE WITHOUT MODIFICATION. BY ACCESSING OR USING THE SITE, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS OF SERVICE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ALL OF THESE TERMS, DO NOT USE THE SITE.
Supplemental terms and conditions or documents may be posted on the Site from time to time and expressly incorporated into these Terms of Service by reference. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to make changes or modifications to these Terms of Service at any time and for any reason. When we make any changes, we will update the “Revised” date of these Terms of Service. We encourage you to periodically review these Terms of Service and the site in order to keep apprised of updates. You will be deemed to have been made aware of, accepted, and you will be subject to the changes in any revised Terms of Service by your continued use of the Site after the date such revised Terms of Service are posted.
As previously mentioned, we have attempted to make our Terms of Service easier to read by providing a “plain English” version alongside the “necessary tedious legalese” formal Terms of Service. Please note, however, that if there’s a conflict between the two versions, the “necessary tedious legalese” version will prevail.
|Necessary tedious legalese:||In other words:|

We hope that any dispute that comes up can be resolved in an amicable way; but if it doesn’t, we would rather resolve it through arbitration than a formal trial. We will follow the laws of the State of California.
