General This website (the “Site”) is owned and operated by “thingCHARGER Inc.” (“COMPANY,” “thingCHARGER,” “we” or “us”). By using the Site, you agree to be bound by these Terms of Service and to use the Site in accordance with these Terms of Service, our Privacy Policy and any additional terms and conditions that may apply to specific sections of the Site or to products and services available through the Site or from COMPANY. Accessing the Site, in any manner, whether automated or otherwise, constitutes use of the Site and your agreement to be bound by these Terms of Service. We reserve the right to change these Terms of Service or to impose new conditions on use of the Site, from time to time, in which case we will post the revised Terms of Service on this website. By continuing to use the Site after we post any such changes, you accept the Terms of Service, as modified. At certain times, we may be directly conducting a fundraising campaign to raise funds to pay for the promotion, development, production and manufacturing of thingCHARGER devices. At other times, fundraising campaigns may be conducted under the auspices of popular “crowdfunding” services such as Indiegogo. By using this site, and participating in a campaign as a contributor, you are donating monies to thingCHARGER and as a result, if our development and production efforts are successful, you may be entitled to receive one or more thingCHARGER devices, depending on the level of contribution you make, and perk(s) you select. There is a possibility that our efforts may fall short, although we hope not, and that we will not be able to deliver products to our contributors. We refer to you as a “contributor” rather than a “buyer” or “purchaser” because, at the present time, we do not have product for sale and are not making sales. Rather, we are soliciting contributions to fund the launch of thingCHARGER and we are offering our contributors “perks” in the form of our products if we are successful in our efforts. Making a Contribution does not: a. give you any rights or ownership in or to thingCHARGER the Campaign or any other person’s Contributions; b. give you any distribution rights of thingCHARGER; c. give you any rights to control or otherwise direct or limit or otherwise affect thingCHARGER; or d. create any liability or responsibility on the part of thingCHARGER to you or any Contributor regardless of reason thingCHARGER does not represent, warrant or guarantee: i. that devices will be delivered; ii. that devices will be satisfactory to you; or iii. the specific use of any Contributions or the outcome of any Campaign. It is up to you, as the contributor, to ask such questions and undertake such due diligence as you deem necessary before you make a contribution. thingCHARGER may, in its sole discretion and judgment but is under no obligation to refund any contribution(s).

Andere The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under the U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials hosted by COMPANY infringe your copyright, you, or your agent may send to COMPANY a notice requesting that the material be removed or access to it be blocked. Any notification by a copyright owner or a person authorized to act on its behalf that fails to comply with requirements of the DMCA shall not be considered sufficient notice and shall not be deemed to confer upon COMPANY actual knowledge of facts or circumstances from which infringing material or acts are evident. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send to COMPANY a counter-notice. All notices and counter notices must meet the then current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see for details. COMPANY’s Copyright Agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement or counter notices can be reached as follows: [email protected] This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of COMPANY and our respective assigns, successors, heirs, and legal representatives.
