GrabCAD Terms of Service

The Site, Content, software, services and other resources are referred to in these Terms of Service, collectively, as the "Services". These Terms of Service likewise apply to any other GrabCAD websites or services that post a link to these Terms of Service (however accessed or used, whether via a personal computer, mobile device or otherwise). The Services are owned, operated, controlled and provided by GrabCAD, Inc. GrabCAD, Inc. is alternatively referred to in these Terms of Service as "GrabCAD", "Company", "we", "us" or "our". Certain features of the Services may be subject to additional terms, conditions or rules, which may be posted on the Site in connection with such features. All such additional terms, conditions, and rules are hereby incorporated by reference into these Terms of Service. In those cases, the terms specific to the special features control to the extent there is a conflict with these Terms of Service.
YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU HAVE THE LEGAL RIGHT AND CAPACITY TO ENTER INTO THESE TERMS OF SERVICE IN YOUR JURISDICTION.

All such changes are effective immediately when we post them, or such later date as may be specified in the notice of updated Terms of Service. Your continued use of the Services following the posting of revised Terms of Service (or engaging in such other conduct as we may reasonably specify) shall indicate your acknowledgement of such changes and your agreement to be bound by the terms and conditions of such changes. If you object to any such changes, your sole recourse is to cease using the Services.

Changes and Disruption to the Services

In addition, although it is GrabCAD's intention for the Services to be available as much as possible, there will be occasions when the Services may be interrupted, including, without limitation, for scheduled maintenance or upgrades, for emergency repairs, or due to failure of telecommunications links and/or equipment. You agree that GrabCAD will not be liable to you or to any third party for any such modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Services, or the resulting loss of any Content.
Cancellation, Suspension and Termination
You may cancel your User Account(s) at any time. You are solely responsible for properly cancelling your account. An email or phone request to cancel your account is not considered cancellation. Your User Account may be deleted from your User Account settings page to cancel your account. You can cancel your account at any time.. In the event that your User Account is canceled, the account's data will be deleted as part of the cancellation process.
We reserve the right, at any time, in our sole discretion, to disable any user Login Credentials, whether chosen by you or provided by us, and to suspend or terminate your User Account(s) or otherwise deny you access, without notice and without liability, and with or without cause, including if we believe you are in breach of these Terms of Service. GrabCAD will attempt to provide advance warning of such termination or suspension, if such is reasonable under the circumstances. GrabCAD reserves the right to refuse provision of or access to the Services to anyone for any reason and at any time. Any termination or suspension of the Services may result in the deactivation or deletion of your User Account(s) or access to your account, and may also result in the forfeiture and relinquishment of all content in your account, as determined by GrabCAD in its sole discretion.
Verbal, physical, written or other abuse (including threats of abuse or retribution) of any GrabCAD customer, employee, member, or officer will result in immediate account termination. We reserve the right to not intervene in interpersonal disputes.
GrabCAD maintains a policy that provides for the termination in appropriate circumstances of the use privileges of users who are repeat infringers of intellectual property rights. Upon termination, all license and other rights granted to you in these Terms of Service will immediately cease (provided, however, that you will retain any rights of ownership of your Workbench project files and User Submissions). If we terminate your access to the Services or you cancel your account as described above, we will delete your Workbench project files and User Submissions from your User Account and we will endeavor to delete your User Submissions from the Services upon cancellation but those materials and data may persist and appear within the Services (e.g., if your User Submissions have been re-shared by others). If you wish to migrate or download Workbench project files and User Submissions from your User Account, you can arrange for this service prior to cancellation. Deleted files are unrecoverable once your User Account is cancelled – by design – to ensure that your data is not compromised. GrabCAD shall not be liable for any claims or losses resulting from such deletions.
