Majozi Terms of Service

We at majozi.com run a duty roster scheduling service called Majozi.

By using the majozi.com or majozi.heroku.com web sites (“Service”), all services of David Anderson dba Majozi (“Majozi”), you are agreeing to be bound by the following terms and conditions (“Terms of Service”).

Majozi is currently in Beta mode, meaning that there may sometimes be errors or service interruption in the software. Your use of the Service constitutes your acceptance of these limitations including possible loss of data. Please accept our gratitude for using the application while in this mode!

In these Terms, "free" plans or accounts refers both to any initial free trial period or a free (non-paying) account. "Premium" accounts are paying and the term refers to any of the Majozi Subscription Plans which require periodic payment of fees to access.

For the purposes of subscription billing, "monthly" refers to a thirty-day billing period which starts the day the subscription was started.

For Organizers of new Organization account signups:
While in Beta mode, some of the for-pay Premium Services may be offered to you at no charge for a limited time; however, you understand that at a future date these may become for-pay Premium Services and continued use of those services would incur a charge. You will be given a 30-day advanced notice when those features convert over to for-pay Premium Services.

There are two kinds of Majozi participants: (1) the person who initially signed up and thereby created an account ("Organizer") did so for a group of people which will be termed the organization ("Organization") and (2) the participants ("Members") of that organization. This Terms of Service addresses both types of participants: Members and Organizers; sections which are relevant only to the Organizer/Organization will be so indicated.

The Organizer will also be considered to be anyone having Majozi administrative privileges for the account and billing responsibilities, whether or not that person was the initial new account sign-up Organizer.

Member participation is solely at the discretion of their Organization. The Organizer has final authority over their Organization's Member participation, including deleting and removing members from participation in Majozi. The employees and officers of Majozi will not be held responsible for those decisions and consequences.

There is never a fee for Members to participate. There may be fees, however, for the Organization (through the Organizer), as discussed below.

Majozi reserves the right to update and change the Terms of Service from time to time without notice. Any new features that augment or enhance the current Service, including the release of new tools and resources, shall be subject to the Terms of Service. Continued use of the Service after any such changes shall constitute your consent to such changes. You can review the most current version of the Terms of Service at any time at majozi.com website.

Violation of any of the terms below will result in the termination of your Account. While Majozi prohibits such conduct and Content on the Service, you understand and agree that Majozi cannot be responsible for the Content posted on the Service and you nonetheless may be exposed to such materials. You agree to use the Service at your own risk.
