These Terms of Service (collectively referred to as the “Terms”) for our website, www.agencyroot.com ("Website"), were last updated on May 5, 2022, and replace all previous versions. The terms "we" and "our" as used in these Terms refer to AgencyRoot LLC.
The Terms govern your use of our Website, customer support and services (the “Services”), and software as well as any applications, electronic files, scripts, source code, instruction sets, and related documentation included as part of the Services (collectively “Software”). You explicitly and implicitly agree to be bound by our Terms each time you access our Website or use our Services or Software. If you do not wish tobe so bound, please do not use our Services or Software or access our Website. If you have entered into another agreement with us concerning specific Services or Software, then the terms of that agreement control where it conflicts with the Terms.
- Limited License. AgencyRoot grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable license to access and use our Website in order to purchase Services and Software.
- Use of Your Content. Your “Content” is any material that you upload and import into the Services or Software in connection with your use of the Services. You retain all rights and ownership of your Content. We do not claim any ownership rights to your Content.
When you upload Content to the Services and Software, you grant us a nonexclusive, royalty-free license to use and translate the Content. Where permitted by law, we will only access or view your Content in order to perform the Services requested by you or as required to address security or technical issues. By uploading your Content to the Services or Software, you agree that you have: (a) all necessary licenses and permissions to use and share your Content; and (b) the rights necessary to grant the licenses in these Terms.
You may revoke this license to your Content and terminate our rights at any time by removing your Content from the Service. Some copies of your Content may be retained as part of our routine backups, however.
- Use of Services and Software. Subject to your compliance with the Terms and the law, you may access the Website and use the Services and Software. We (and our licensors) remain the sole owner of all right, title, and interest in the Website, Services, and Software.

You authorize us to continue billing your account with the updated information that we obtain.
- Termination. By You: You can terminate the Services and Software at any time.
Such termination will result in the deactivation or disablement of your account and
access to it, and the deletion of content you collected through use of the Services.
Terminations are confirmed immediately and you will not be charged again for that
Service unless you purchase a new one. If you terminate a Service in the middle of a
billing cycle, you will not receive a refund for any period of time you did not use in that
billing cycle unless you are terminating these Terms for any of the following reasons:
(a)we have materially breached these Terms and failed to cure that breach within 30 days
after you have so notified us in writing; or
(b) a refund is required by law.
By Us: If we terminate the Terms, or your use of the Service(s) is terminated for reasons other than for cause, we will make reasonable efforts to notify you at least 30 days prior to termination via the email address you provide to us. Unless stated in any additional Terms, we may, at any time, terminate your right to use and access the Services or Software if:
(a) you breach any provision of the Terms (or act in a manner that clearly shows you do not intend to, or are unable to, comply with the Terms);
(b) you fail to make the timely payment of fees for the Services or Software, if any;
(c) you materially breach any provision of the Terms, and (i) the breach cannot be corrected; or (ii) we notify you of the breach and you fail to correct it within 14 days of the notice;
(d) you physically, verbally, or through other means abuse, intimidate, threaten, bully, or harass us or our personnel (in such circumstances, we may alternatively suspend or restrict your access to the Services or Software);
(e) we are required to do so by law (for example, where the provision of the Services or Software to you is, or becomes, unlawful); or
(f) we elect to discontinue the Services or Software, in whole or in part.
- Survival. Upon the expiration or termination of the Terms, some or all of the Services and Software may cease to operate without prior notice.
