3. Content

  1. Your content. You may provide input content (“Input Content”) to the services and receive output content (“Output Content”) generated and returned by the services based on your input. Both “Input Content” and “Output Content” are referred to as the “Content”. You will have the right to input the Content to the extent permitted by applicable laws. Subject to all applicable laws and without infringement upon third-party rights, you may exercise all rights in the Output Content, and you will be responsible for the authenticity, accuracy, legality, and compliance of the Output Content.

    By inputting the Content, you agree that we may use your Input Content, including your personal information, for the purpose of providing the services. You shall guarantee that the Input Content, including but not limited to information, data, images, fonts, audio, video, materials, and codes, will be legal, compliant, true, and accurate, and will not infringe the legitimate interests or intellectual property rights of any third party. You shall guarantee that the Input Content will not contain personal information, personal privacy, trade secrets, Confidential Information or any other information that infringes the rights of others. If the legitimate interests of others are damaged or the Confidential Information or trade secrets are disclosed thereby, you shall solely bear all consequences and liability, and we will reserve the right to claim compensation from you for any losses, if any, caused to us, including but not limited to compensations to third parties.

    You shall be responsible for the Content, including ensuring that it will not violate any applicable law and this Agreement. You are prohibited from using the Output Content to generate discriminatory content, harm the image or reputation of others, or damage their lawful rights and interests, and from engaging in commercial exploitation or improper marketing. You shall conduct appropriate manual reviews of the Output Content, especially when it is used for automated decision-making.

    When using the Output Content, you shall add a mark, clearly indicating that the Output Content is generated by AI to avoid any misunderstanding by your customers or others.

  2. Your files and data. You can upload your files and data to the servers designated by us based on their size and type parameters. Information related to your query is extracted from the uploaded data and files, and we will not interfere with the data and files you have uploaded.

  3. Similarity of Content. Considering the inherent properties of machine learning, the Output Content may not be unique among users, and the services may generate the same or similar outputs for us or third parties. For example, you may provide the Input Content to the model, such as “What color is the sky”? and then receive the Input Content, such as “The sky is blue”. Other users may ask similar questions and receive the same response. Requests from other users and responses to them will not be considered as your Content.

  4. Use of Content to improve the services. As one of the main advantages of the machine learning model, it may improve over time. To help us provide and maintain the services, you agree and instruct us to use the Content to develop and improve the services, and the Content may be used as training data for iterations of our service. You agree to grant us a royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, global, non-exclusive, and fully sub-licensable right (including any moral rights) and license, including using the content you share or upload for display and commercial purposes on the platform. We understand that in some cases, you may not hope that your Content will be used for service improvement. You can choose not to have your content used for improvement by sending your organization ID to support@chatof.ai. Please note that in some cases, this may limit our ability to better address your specific issues with the services.

  5. Accuracy. Both AI and machine learning are rapidly evolving fields of research. We keep trying our best to improve our services so that they become more accurate, reliable, safe, and beneficial. Given the probabilistic property of machine learning, the use of our services may generate incorrect output that cannot accurately reflect real individuals, locations, or facts in some cases. You shall assess the accuracy of any Output Content based on your use case, including conducting manual reviews of the Output Content.

  6. Complaints. If you discover or become aware of any Output Content that infringes others’ rights to likeness, reputation or personality, personal privacy, trade secrets, or Confidential Information, please email compliance@engagelab.com. We will selectively take measures, including but not limited to notifying the infringer and making a reasonable judgment of infringement, suspending or ceasing the generation of the aforementioned infringing content, deleting or disabling the Content suspected of infringement, and potentially terminating the account of the repeat infringer. If there is a dispute with respect to infringement and you disagree with our reasonable judgment, you may initiate a lawsuit against the infringer with the court of competent jurisdiction in accordance with law.

The written claim of infringement shall include the following information:

  1. the physical or electronic signature of the authorized representative of the intellectual property right owner;

  2. the description of your alleged infringed work;

  3. the description of the location of your alleged infringing materials on the website;

  4. your address, phone number, and email;

  5. your statement indicating that you believe in good faith that the disputed use is not authorized by the intellectual property right owner or its agent or by law; and

  6. your statement that the aforementioned information in your notice is accurate and that you are the intellectual property right owner or the authorized representative thereof.

4. Fees and payment

  1. Fees. We will charge you fees (“Fees”) for the services at such prices and on such terms as specified on the applicable pricing page or in a manner otherwise agreed upon by you and us in writing. If you fail to make a timely payment, we will send you a notice and may suspend your access to the services at any time until we have received the Fees. The Fees are non-refundable unless this Agreement fails to be performed due to failure of the services on our part.

  2. Taxes. Unless otherwise stated, the Fees do not include taxes. You will be responsible for paying all taxes in connection with your purchase, excluding taxes based on our net income, and we may issue the invoice of such taxes to you. You agree to pay such taxes and provide us with a payment certificate or other evidence as may be reasonably requested by us. We will use the name and address provided in your account registration as the jurisdiction for tax purposes, so you must ensure the accuracy and currency of such information.

  3. Changes in prices. We may change our prices by giving a notice to your account and/or publishing a notice on our website. The rising price will take effect on the fourteenth day after the announcement, except as based on legal reasons or the rise in price of the third-party AI services that our services access, in which case such a rising price will take effect immediately. We will charge you based on the new price immediately after the effective date of the price change.

  4. Disputes and late payment. If you have any objections to any Fees or taxes, please email support@chatof.ai within thirty (30) days from the date of the disputed invoice. In case of late payment, you shall pay a penalty at the rate of 0.05% of the overdue amount per day. If you fail to pay any overdue Fees, we will send you a notice of late payment and then suspend your use of the services.

  5. Free service offerings. You are not allowed to create multiple accounts to obtain our free service offerings. If we are of the view that you have registered multiple accounts with malicious intent to obtain free service offerings repeatedly, we may charge you at the standard price or cease providing you with access to the services.

5. Confidentiality, security and data protection

  1. Confidentiality. You may be granted access to Confidential Information belonging to us, our affiliates, and other third parties. You may use the Confidential Information as necessary for using the services only to the extent permitted in this Agreement.

    1. is or becomes generally available to the public other than through your fault;

    2. is received without an obligation of confidentiality;

    3. is disclosed to you by a third party who had no obligation of confidentiality; or

    4. is independently developed by you without reference to the Confidential Information.

  3. No class actions. Disputes may be raised only on an individual basis and may not be raised in the capacity of a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, consolidated, or representative action.
