Welcome to officewise.com, a website and online service owned and operated by Officewise, LLC ("Officewise" "we," or "us"). This page explains the terms by which you may use our service. By accessing or using the Officewise services, website, applications and software provided through or in connection with the service ("Service"), you signify that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by this Terms of Use Agreement ("Agreement"), whether or not you are a registered user of our Service. We reserve the right to amend this Agreement at any time and without notice. If we do this, we will post the amended Agreement on this page and indicate at the top of the page the date the Agreement was last revised. Your continued use of the Service after any such changes constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms of Use. If you do not agree to any of these terms or any future Terms of Use, do not use or access (or continue to access) the Service. This Agreement applies to all visitors, users, and others who access the Service ("Users").

Use of Our Service

Officewise provides a service that enables Users to create and manage purchase requests and purchase orders. Officewise grants you permission to use the Service as set forth in this Agreement, provided that: (i) you will not copy, distribute, or disclose any part of the Service in any medium; (ii) you will not alter or modify any part of the Service other than as may be reasonably necessary to use the Service for its intended purpose; and (iii) you will otherwise comply with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. You may register with Officewise and create a user account. Your account gives you access to the services and functionality that we may establish and maintain from time to time at our sole discretion. You may never use another User’s account without permission. When creating your account, you must provide accurate and complete information. You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your account, and you must keep your account password secure. You must notify Officewise immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account. Although Officewise will not be liable for your losses caused by any unauthorized use of your account, you shall be liable for the losses of Officewise or others due to such unauthorized use. By providing Officewise your email address you consent to our using the email address to send you Service related notices, including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail. We may also use your email address to send you other messages, including changes to features of the Service and special offers. You agree not to use or launch any automated system, including without limitation, "robots," "spiders," "offline readers," etc., that accesses the Service in a manner that sends more request messages to the Officewise servers than a human can reasonably produce in the same period of time by using a conventional on-line web browser. You agree not to collect or harvest any personally identifiable information, including account names, from the Service, nor to use the Service for any unauthorized commercial solicitation purposes. You agree not to use any portion of the Service as a destination for any unsolicited bulk messages or unsolicited commercial messages. Officewise may permanently or temporarily terminate, suspend, or otherwise refuse to permit your access to the Service without notice and liability, if, in Officewise’s sole determination, you violate any of the Agreement, including the following prohibited actions: (i) attempting to interfere with or compromise the system integrity or security, or decipher any transmissions to or from the servers running the Service; (ii) taking any action that imposes, or may impose at our sole discretion, an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our infrastructure; (iii) uploading invalid data, viruses, worms, or other software agents through the Service; (iv) impersonating another person or otherwise misrepresenting your affiliation with a person or entity, conducting fraud, hiding or attempting to hide your identity; (v) interfering with the proper working of the Service; or, (vi) bypassing the measures we may use to prevent or restrict access to the Service, including, but not limited to, registering for the Service with a personal email address. Upon termination for any reason, you continue to be bound by this Agreement. If your access to or use of the Service is terminated voluntarily or involuntarily, we cannot guarantee that any information provided by you to us will be removed. If you learn that a User is violating this Agreement, we encourage you to notify us at support@officewise.com. You agree you will not accuse any User of being unauthorized or of violating this Agreement unless you have actual knowledge.
