Description of Service. My Things App offers a productivity app (i.e., a computer program or application) (the “App“) branded as “My Things – Where Are They?”TM or “Sortly” that helps users remember the location of their things at home, at work, in storage, or during move or travel (collectively, the “Service“). The App is currently available for iPhones and iPads and may be downloaded from Apple’s App Store (the “Store“).
Reviews, Comments, and Other Content. You may post and/or submit reviews, comments, suggestions, ideas, information and/or other content (“Content“) to the Website or on the App so long as such Content is not illegal, obscene, threatening, defamatory, invasive of privacy, infringing of intellectual property rights, or otherwise injurious to third parties or objectionable and does not consist of or contain software viruses, political campaigning, commercial solicitation, chain letters, mass mailings, or any form of “spam.” You may not use a false e-mail address, impersonate any person or entity, or otherwise mislead as to the origin of a card or other content. We reserve the right (but do not have the obligation) to remove or edit such Content. We do not regularly review posted Content. If you do post Content, and unless we indicate otherwise, you grant us a nonexclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, and fully sub-licensable right to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, and display such Content throughout the world in any media. You grant us and our sub-licensees the right to use the name that you submit in connection with such Content, if we or they choose. You represent and warrant that: (i) you own or otherwise control all of the rights to the Content that you post and/or submit; (ii) the Content is accurate; (iii) the use of the Content you post and/or submit does not violate these Terms; and (iv) the Content will not cause injury to any person or entity. We have the right, but not the obligation, to monitor and edit or remove any activity or Content. We take no responsibility and assume no liability for any Content posted by you or any third party.
Data Security. While we take reasonable measures to safeguard your Content, you are solely responsible for maintaining a backup of all of your Content outside of the Service that is readily available to you at all times in case of any loss, erasure or destruction of your Content stored on the Service.

We do not control those devices and cannot ensure their safety or the security of your Content available through those devices, including, without limitation, any unauthorized access by anyone using those devices with or without your consent. You acknowledge and understand that we rely on third party providers to provide us and users of the Service, including you, various security and encryption measures reasonably necessary to safeguard your Content. We have listed the measures that we currently take on the Website and/or App merely for illustration purposes and we do not warrant their availability at all times or their efficacy. Our respective vendors are solely responsible for the security measures they provide and your sole remedy for any breach would be against them and not us.

To be effective, the notification must be a written communication that includes the following: (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (b) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site; (c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material; (d) information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number and, if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted; (e) a statement that the complaining party has a good-faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; and (f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
We may give notice of a claim of copyright infringement to our users by means of a general notice on the Website, electronic mail to a user’s email address in our records, or by written communication sent by first-class mail to a user’s address in our records, if any. In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA“) and other applicable law, My Things App has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances and at the sole discretion of My Things App, account holders who are deemed to be repeat infringers. My Things App may also at its sole discretion limit access to the Website, the App and/or terminate the accounts of any users who infringe any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not there is any repeat infringement.
Payments and Refunds. From time to time, we may provide premium features of the Service (such as, Sortly Cloud Premium) for various fees (“Fees“). The fees applicable for such premium features will be specified on the Website, the App and/or the Store. The price stated for the Service excludes all taxes and charges, unless stated otherwise. You are responsible for any taxes and for all other charges (for example, data charges and currency exchange settlements). You will pay the Fees in the currency quoted on the Website, the App and/or the Store. We and/or the Store reserves the right to change the quoted currency at any time.
In addition to any Fees, you may still incur charges incidental to using the Service, for example, charges for Internet access, data roaming, and other data transmission charges.
At this time, My Things App does not provide any payment gateway or handle any payment processes for any users of the App, including you. The entire billing and payment process is handle by Apple and/or its agents through the Store and you must comply with their payment terms and other instructions, as specified in the Store, as well as any other terms stated in the App or in these Terms. Without limiting the foregoing, and only by way of explanation, you must be authorized to use the payment method that you enter when you create a billing account. You authorize the Store to charge you for the Service using your payment method and for any paid feature of the Service that you choose to sign up for or use while these Terms or any Store terms are in force. The Store may bill: (a) in advance; (b) at the time of purchase; (c) shortly after purchase; or (d) on a recurring basis for subscription Services. Also, the Store may charge you up to the amount you have approved, and may choose to notify you in advance of the difference for recurring subscription Services.
You must keep all information in your billing account current. You may access and modify your billing account information through the Store. You may be able to change your payment method or cancel your subscription at any time, only if so permitted by the Store terms.
We will notify you in advance, either through the Service, the App, the Store or to the email address you have most recently provided to us, if we change the price of the Service. If there is a specific length and price for your Service offer, that price will remain in force for that time, unless otherwise specified in the Store. After the offer period ends, your use of the Service will be charged at the new price. If your Service is on a period basis (for example, monthly) with no specific length, we will notify you of any price change at least 30 days in advance, unless a shorter period is specified by the Store. If you don’t agree to these changes, you must cancel and stop using the Service by sending us an email (with cancellation confirmation from a My Things App representative or agent) no later than fourteen (14) days prior to the conclusion of your current payment term, whether monthly, yearly, or otherwise.
Payments for all premium features are due at the time you sign up for them, unless we expressly agree otherwise in writing. You retain the responsibility for settling all outstanding balances in a timely manner and maintaining updated billing information. If not complied with, at the end of 90 days (unless a shorter period is specified by the Store), your account will be deactivated and all files will no longer be retrievable.
Except as specifically set forth in this section, all Services are prepaid for the period selected (monthly, yearly or otherwise) and are non-refundable. This includes accounts that are renewed.
You will not be issued a refund for your most recent (or any previous) billing, unless you are an annual subscriber, in which event you may obtain a refund for a renewal fee only if you do so within 30 days of the day on which you were charged for the renewal of your account; in such an event, only a partial refund equivalent to 80% of the annual renewal fee will be returned. All cancellations and downgrades are processed automatically. To cancel or downgrade, please log into the cloud settings of the App for your account and click the link that says “Manage Subscriptions” and follow the instructions.
Except as prohibited by law, we or Apple may assess a late charge if you do not pay on time. You must pay these late charges when we or the Store bills you for them. The late charge will be the lesser of 1 percent of the unpaid amount each month or the maximum rate permitted by law, unless the Store specifies a higher interest rate. We or Apple may use a third party to collect past due amounts. You must pay for all reasonable costs we or Apple incurs to collect any past due amounts, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and other legal fees and costs. We may suspend or cancel your Service if you fail to pay in full on time.
As stated above, we do not provide a payment gateway or store any of your payment details, including any credit card details. Your payment details are stored on the Store in conformance with Apple’s policies, as they may be updated from time to time. In addition to complying with these Terms and other of our applicable policies, you are required to comply with Apple’s policies from time to time. In the event of any conflict between our policies and those of Apple, the most restrictive policies will bind you.
Miscellaneous. These Terms and your use of the Website, the App, the Support and the Service will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California applicable to agreements made and to be entirely performed within the State of California, without resort to its conflict of law provisions. You agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to these Terms will be filed only in the state and federal courts located in San Mateo County, California. You hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts over any suit, action or proceeding arising out of these Terms. None of your rights or duties under these Terms may be transferred, assigned or delegated by you without our prior written consent, and any attempted transfer, assignment or delegation without such consent will be void and without effect. We may freely transfer, assign or delegate our rights and duties under these Terms. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will be binding upon and will inure to the benefit of the parties and their respective representatives, heirs, administrators, successors and permitted assigns. If any provision of these Terms is invalid, illegal, or incapable of being enforced by any rule of law or public policy, all other provisions of these Terms will nonetheless remain in full force and effect so long as the economic or legal substance of the transactions contemplated by these Terms is not affected in any manner adverse to any party. Upon such determination that any provision is invalid, illegal, or incapable of being enforced, the parties will negotiate in good faith to modify the Terms so as to effect the original intent of the parties as closely as possible in an acceptable manner to the end that the transactions contemplated hereby are fulfilled.
Reports. If you believe there is a violation of these Terms and you would like to report it to us, please direct the information to email@example.com. Any reports of violations you submit to us, including your identity, may not be kept confidential. In response to your report, we may take actions in accordance with these Terms or other applicable agreements between us and the alleged violator of the Terms, and may pursue other remedies available under all applicable local, state, federal or international laws, regulations, rules, orders and other requirements, now or hereafter in effect. However, we are under no obligation to respond to any reports we receive. Please note that a personal reply to reports you submit to us may not always be possible.
