1. ACCEPTANCE OF TERMSWelcome to the CRABLY Platform creation service (the "Service"). The use of CRABLY Platform is subject to these Terms of Service ("Terms"). These Terms shall also apply to the use of the Service on a trial basis during a period of thirty (30) days ("Trial Period" / system test).
When using the Service, you (the "User") confirm to accept the Terms set forth herein. If you don’t agree to these Terms do not use the Service.
2. DESCRIPTION OF THE SERVICE
These Terms of Service ("Terms") are an agreement between you (the "User") and Crably APS ("We"). We provide USERS the access to the CRABLY platform, which is a SAAS service (Software as a Service). We provide online management of modular content that covers all the basic functions to manage a web site (blog, media and the creation of other types of content) and also an extreme flexibility through the extension Theme that allows an in-house development of extra features, directly and via the website and the domains linked to http://crably.com (the "Website").
CRABLY Platform can change and update the Terms of Service of this website at any time without notice to the users.
- Website: It is a number of web pages that usually have in common the fact that they belong to the same domain;
- HTML (Hypertext Markup Language): it is a markup language used to produce web pages;
- Domain: The address of a website often referred to as URL, e.g. http://crably.com;
- Subdomain: It is a partition to the domain, e.g. http://subdomain.crably.com;
- Frontend: Consists in the public area of the website but it can also contain a private area that doesn’t belong to the website administration (Backend);
- Backend: It is the website’s administration area;
- Landing Page: Temporary static page;
- CSS: It is a style sheet language used to define the presentation of documents written in HTML. Its main benefit is to promote the separation between a document’s format and content;
- SSL (Secure Sockets Layers): encrypts information transferred from one Internet’s point to another;
- DNS (Domain Name System): acts as an IP address translation system for domain names;
- SEO: search engine optimization or optimization for search engines, is the set of strategies aiming to enhance and improve the positioning of a website in the natural (organic) results page in search websites creating conversions, whether they are leads, purchases, form submissions, appointment bookings, etc.
- Customer: any User (natural or legal person) that has an account in the Crably Platform to manage websites;
- Customer Area: It is the area where the User can manage their websites (create and delete websites, place Landing Page websites);
- Crably Platform: The entire Source Code, interface and database that define Crably Software.
Our web-based service allows users over 18 (eighteen) years old to sign up in order to create and update an online website. During the trial period, the User only needs to provide a valid email address, a password and a name for the website.
After the trial period, in order to keep the services active or add other services you must provide full name, valid email address, phone number, full address, CPF (in case you are Brazilian citizen), website name, password, Skype (optional), Facebook (optional), Twitter (optional), and also, in case the user represents a company: company name, Taxpayer or VAT number or the company registration number.
After the final registration, you will obtain a CRABLY login and you will be solely responsible for all the activity in your account and for maintaining the confidentiality of your password. Each created website will be originally hosted in http://mysite.crably.com (“mysite” will be the name of your website). You will be able to buy a domain from us or to redirect to CRABLY your domain purchased from another company, but this will only be possible after paying the license - which can be done at all times. When choosing a domain, the website will be accessed directly via that domain. Regarding the use of the Service, you agree to maintain and update true, accurate and updated information in your details.
If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, outdated, incomplete, or if CRABLY Platform has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, outdated or incomplete, we may fully or partially suspend or close your account and refuse all current or future use of the Service.
Once registered, each account holder gets its own website and may post specific "Content". You also agree to ensure that every person authorized to use the user login is aware and agrees in writing to the terms of this Agreement.
The service we offered may include certain communications between CRABLY Platform and the USERS, such as service announcements and administrative messages.
4.1. WHAT IS A CRABLY PLAN?
The Crably Plan will entitle the User to have a non-exclusive and non-transferable license to use the Crably Platform. Thus the User can manage its created web site, being able to access the Backend and Frontend of the mentioned website. This use is only available upon payment of a fee (which includes a support package that includes, at least, hosting, security and system updates).
The website can only be hosted on Crably.com servers.
The use includes the ability to insert and change the content of the website, to edit the theme’s CSS in use, to load and store media to be displayed on the website. The content storage is limited by the Crably.com team, depending on the packages and prices available in Crably’s website.
4.2. HOW DOES THE PLAN CRABLY WORKS?The Crably Plan consists of:
- Crably Platform
- Theme (design)
- Official themes created by Crably
- Themes created or adapted by the Crably team.
Each Crably website will be mandatorily associated with a Crably Plan with the corresponding address in the Crably platform. This address in the Crably platform has by its very nature a subdomain (e.g. http://mysite.crably.com) chosen by the User.
In alternative, there is the option to associate a domain to the website, which can be purchased at any time at Crably.com or another website preferred by the user. When the domain is purchased on a web site other than Crably.com, the User will be responsible for configuring DNS, redirecting its domain to the Crably.com server IP.
The domain and subdomain should be the name of the website itself and some websites may be challenged, amended or disabled for intellectual property reasons or by decision of Crably APS.
All Crably plans include a free shared SSL certificate, which is used to secure the access to the data stored in the Crably Platform.
