Last Updated: 11/15/2019

Please read these Terms of Use (“Terms”) carefully. These Terms set forth a legally binding agreement between you and SAY IT Labs BV, a limited liability company registered under Belgian law (VAT: BE 0721.671.486) (“SAY IT Labs”, “we”, or “us”), and govern your use of www.sayitlabs.com or of any online service location (e.g., website, browser application) that posts a link to these Terms and your use of interactive features, widgets, plug-ins, applications, content, downloads and/or other services that we own and control and make available through our online service locations that post a link to these Terms (the “Service”). By using the Service, you acknowledge and accept these Terms, and consent to the collection, use, and sharing of your data and other activities as described in the Service’s Privacy Policy.

In some instances, such as when SAY IT Labs offers contests, sweepstakes, giveaways, and other promotions, additional or different terms and/or conditions will apply to your use of the Service or to a service or product offered via the Service (in each such instance, and collectively “Additional Terms”). If you do not wish to be bound by these Terms, and any applicable Additional Terms, do not use the Service.

These Terms are subject to change without notice. When such a change is made, we will update the “Last Updated” date at the top of this page. Your use of the Service following any such change constitutes your agreement to follow and be bound by updated Terms.

C. Service Content Accuracy

SAY IT Labs will use reasonable efforts to include accurate and current information on the service, but there may be occasions when information on the service contains typographical errors, inaccuracies, or omissions that may relate to product descriptions, pricing, availability, and other matters. SAY IT Labs reserves the right to correct any errors and to update Service information at any time. We apologize for any inconvenience such errors may cause you.

D. Limited License

Subject to your strict compliance with these Terms, SAY IT Labs grants you a limited, non-exclusive, revocable, non-assignable, personal, and non-transferable license to download, display, view, use, or play the content on a personal device, and retain one copy of the content as it is displayed to you for your personal, non-commercial use only. The foregoing limited license does not give you any ownership of, or any other intellectual property interest in, any content and may be immediately suspended or terminated for any reason, in SAY IT Labs’s sole discretion, and without advance notice or liability. Your unauthorized use of the content may violate copyright, trademark, privacy, publicity, communications, and other laws, and any such use may result in your personal liability, including potential criminal liability.

E. Restrictions

For Direct Access, we rely on consent from an individual with parental authority as the legal basis for processing data where the data subject is a child. We have our own clear parental consent mechanisms and verification processes in place and you can withdraw your consent as outlined below. For Indirect Access, we require any third parties using our services to ensure that the relevant parental consents are in place before they send any voice data to our services. We process de-identified voice data for the legitimate interest purposes of improving the Services as outlined in this statement. Your rights and the mechanisms for objecting to this type of processing of data are clearly outlined below.

We respect the role of parents or guardians in the monitoring of their children’s online activities. Accordingly, we limit our collection of personal information from children to no more than is reasonably necessary to participate in the Services and to improve it going forward. We do not collect any personal information from children other than as set out in this privacy policy. At any time parents or guardians can contact us and request the deletion of any personal information of their child which we store.

We collect Recordings from children which are captured when children interact with the Services depending upon the particular application being used. We may use, store, process and transcribe Recordings in order to provide and maintain the Services, to perform, test or improve our own/proprietary speech recognition technology and artificial intelligence algorithms, or for other research and development and data analysis purposes. Additionally, these recordings may be listened to by human ears for the specific purpose of generating transcriptions or labelling data. We do not share the recordings, or any data generated by the recordings, with any third parties for any purpose other than those described above.

F. Reservation of All Rights

All rights not expressly granted to you are reserved by SAY IT Labs and its licensors and other third parties. No right or license may be construed, under any legal theory, by implication, estoppel, industry custom, or otherwise. Any unauthorized use of any Content or the Service for any purpose is prohibited.

2. Submissions

You may be able to submit certain content to us through the Service, including in-time or prerecorded voice recordings and feedback or comments to us regarding your use of the Service (“Submissions”). You grant us a non-exclusive, unrestricted, unconditional, unlimited, worldwide, irrevocable, perpetual, transferable, and cost-free right and license to use, copy, record, distribute, reproduce, disclose, sell, resell, sublicense, display, publicly perform, transmit, publish, broadcast, translate, make derivative works of, and otherwise use and exploit in any manner whatsoever, all or any portion of your Submissions and derivative works thereof, for any purpose whatsoever in all formats, on or through any means or medium now known or hereafter developed, and with any technology or devices now known or hereafter developed, and to advertise, market, and promote the same. You also irrevocably consent to our use and association of your name in connection with your Submissions and derivatives thereof. You agree to waive any moral rights that you may have in any Submission, even if it is altered or changed in a manner not agreeable to you. To the extent not waivable, you irrevocably agree not to exercise such rights in a manner that interferes with any exercise of the granted rights. You understand that you will not receive any fees, sums, consideration, or remuneration for any of the rights granted in this Section. Our receipt of your Submissions is not an admission of their novelty, priority, or originality, and it does not impair our right to contest existing or future intellectual property rights relating to your Submissions.

Each time you submit any Submission, you represent and warrant that you have confirmed the accuracy of the Submission and that: • If a Submission, such as a voice recording, contains information about another individual, such as their voice, you have obtained their consent to create the Submission and to submit the Submission, pursuant to our Privacy Policy; • You are the sole author and owner of the intellectual property and other rights to the Submission, or you have a lawful right to submit the Submission and grant SAY IT Labs such rights therein; • The Submission does not and, as to SAY IT Labs’s permitted uses and exploitation set forth in these Terms, will not infringe any intellectual property or other right of any third party; • The Submission will not violate these Terms or any applicable Additional Terms, or cause injury or harm to any person; • You are not impersonating any other person, user, or company; and • You will not submit Submissions that you believe may be false, fraudulent, deceptive, inaccurate, or misleading, or that misrepresent your identity or affiliation with a person or company.
