Tonido, including its applications, devices (TonidoPlug), software and services, and the CodeLathe.com, Tonido.com, Tonidoplug.com (collectively referred to as Tonido) are owned, published and operated by CodeLathe, and provided to You under the terms and conditions of this Terms of Service agreement (the TOS).
YOU MUST READ THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT BEFORE SETTING UP OR USING THE HARDWARE AND/OR SOFTWARE PURCHASED AT TONIDO STORE. BY SETTING UP OR OTHERWISE USING THE PRODUCTS PURCHASED FROM HTTPS://STORE.TONIDO.COM YOU INDICATE YOUR ACKNOWLEDGMENT THAT YOU HAVE READ THIS AGREEMENT AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY AND COMPLY WITH ITS TERMS. YOU MAY NOT USE HARDWARE AND/OR SOFTWARE PURCHASED FROM TONIDO STORE UNLESS YOU ACCEPT THE TOS. YOU ALSO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT TONIDOPLUG IS A HARDWARE PRODUCT.
Who Can Accept TOS: You may not accept the TOS and therefore may not use Tonido if (a) you are not of legal age to form a binding contract with CodeLathe, or (b) you are a person barred from using Tonido under the laws any applicable country or other jurisdiction.
License: Subject to Your acceptance of the TOS, CodeLathe hereby grants You a limited, personal, non-commercial, non-exclusive, non-sub licensable, non-assignable license to download, install and use Tonido on Your computer for the sole purpose of using the services and products provided by Tonido (the License). This license doesn't apply to embedded hardware devices such as NAS drives, Smart Routers and setup boxes which are not Tonido branded devices. Your TonidoPlug comes pre-installed with Tonido software which offers an unlimited, personal, commercial, non-exclusive and non-sub licensable license to use Tonido.
Your Own Risk: You acknowledge and agree that the entire risk arising out of this License and Your use of Tonido is Your own, to the maximum extent permitted by law. This includes the possibility of problems arising out of security or other flaws in Tonido. CodeLathe does not warrant that Tonido functions and/or service will be uninterrupted or error-free, that defects will be corrected or that Tonido will be invulnerable to security flaws or problems arising out of such flaws.
Accounts and Security: As part of the registration process and in order to use Tonido, You must select a password (Password) and a user name (User Name). You may not (i) attempt to select or use a User Name with the intent to impersonate another person or entity; (ii) use a User Name subject to the rights of any other person or entity without such prior authorization; or (iii) use a User Name that Tonido, in its sole discretion, deems inappropriate or offensive.
You shall be responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Password and since Your Password is never transmitted to CodeLathe, in the event you forget Your Password, it is not possible to recover the Password and login into the profile. CodeLathe is not responsible for any Password issues You may encounter, including lost or stolen Passwords.
INFORMATION SECURITY: When you purchase a product at store.tonido.com, we collect your credit card number and your expiration date. We will automatically store your credit card number and expiration date on the secure server of Cybersource Corportation. This information is used solely for billing purposes when you order from store.tonido.com and is always encrypted and transmitted safely over the Internet using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. Cybersource Corporation adheres to the strictest security and Payment Card Interface (PCI) Compliance standards. You can view their information security policy for more information here.
Shopping and buying online with your credit card is actually statistically more secure than using it in a department store. And, at Codelathe, our customers' privacy and security are a top priority. We take every precaution to protect your online order information. Our checkout and confirmation areas are secured using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. SSL technology ensures that your credit card number and personal data are never sent over the Internet unencrypted. Once we receive your credit card information, it is immediately and securely stored in its encrypted form with Cybersource Corporation. Once it is encrypted, only the credit card authorization company can decrypt it. Your credit card number is never displayed to us — only the first and last four digits will ever be shown. You can have full confidence in the security of your transactions while shopping at Store.Tonido.com
Intellectual Property: Any and all intellectual property rights (the IP Rights) of the Tonido software are and shall remain the exclusive IP Rights of CodeLathe. Nothing contained in this TOS or the License intends to transfer or vest with you any such IP Rights.
Tonido Alpha/Beta Software: Tonido Alpha and Beta versions are offered freely for the purposes of testing and further developing Tonido. Therefore, service interruptions and other bugs and malfunctions are highly possible. Thus, You agree to use Tonido at your own risk during such Alpha or Beta periods.

Tonido may also automatically download and install updates from time to time from CodeLathe. These updates are designed to improve, enhance and further develop Tonido and may take the form of bug fixes, enhanced functions, new software modules or completely new versions. You agree to receive such updates (and permit CodeLathe to deliver these to you) if you enable automatic updates in the Tonido software.
Tonido Usage Statistics: As an opt-in feature, and in order to improve Tonido products and services, Tonido will send anonymous usage statistics to CodeLathe. This information does not contain any personally identifiable information. You can disable this feature if required.
New Tonido Versions: CodeLathe has no obligation to make available to You any subsequent versions of Tonido. You may be required to enter into an updated version of this TOS agreement in the event you want to download, install or otherwise use an updated or new version of Tonido.

TonidoPlug External Access: Accessing TonidoPlug from an external network or internet requires port forwarding in your network router. Some restrictive networks won't allow port forwarding. CodeLathe is not liable for such occurrences and users should make sure whether port forwarding is allowed in their network before buying TonidoPlug.
Payments and Charges: In the event that CodeLathe wishes to charge you for Tonido or any premium version, You shall pay Tonido any applicable charges to download and/or use subsequent versions of Tonido.

Lawful purposes: You will use Tonido solely for lawful purposes. In this respect You may not, without limitation (a) intercept or monitor, damage or modify any communication which is not intended for You; (b) use any type of spider, virus, worm, trojan-horse, time bomb or any other codes or instructions that are designed to distort, delete, damage or disassemble Tonido or the communication; (c) send any unsolicited commercial communication not permitted by applicable law; (d) expose any third party to material which is offensive, harmful to minors, indecent or otherwise objectionable in any way; (e) use Tonido to cause or intend to cause embarrassment or distress to, or to threaten, harass or invade the privacy of, any third party; or (f) use any material or content that is subject to any third party proprietary or intellectual property rights, unless you have a license or permission from the owner of such rights.
If the law of Your country (or other applicable jurisdiction) prohibits You from downloading or using Tonido because You are under the age limit or because Tonido services are not allowed, You agree not to use Tonido and to indemnify and hold CodeLathe harmless from such use.
Warranties: Installing Tonido enables You to communicate with other people. CodeLathe cannot and does not guarantee that You will always be able to communicate with other people, nor can CodeLathe guarantee that You can communicate without disruptions, delays or communication-related flaws or that all Your communications shall always be delivered to other people. Although CodeLathe will endeavor to make timely fixes to flaws in the Tonido, CodeLathe is not responsible for any problems arising out of Your use of Tonido.
