Last Modified: January 1, 2020



Welcome to Hive

Welcome to Hive and thank you for using our services (“Services”). The Services are provided by Hive Technologies Group, LLC (“Hive”), located at 1212 South Andrews Avenue, Suite 203, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316, United States. By using our Services, you agree to the following terms:


Your Hive Account

You may need a Hive Account to gain access to our Services. You may create your own Hive Account, or your Hive Account may be assigned to you by an administrator, such as your employer. If you are using a Hive Account assigned to you by an administrator, additional terms may apply.

We want you to remain protected while using our Services. To protect your Hive Account, please keep your password confidential as you are responsible for the activity that happens on or through your Hive Account. To better protect yourself, keep your Hive Account password unique and do not reuse it on third-party applications. If you learn of any unauthorized use of your password or Hive Account, please contact the Hive Support Team.


Your Content in our Services

Some of our Services allow you to upload, submit, store, send, or receive content. You retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that you hold in that content. In short, what belongs to you stays yours.

When you upload, submit, store, send, or receive content to or through our Services, you give Hive and those we work with a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works such as those resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes we make so that your content works better with our Services, communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display, and distribute such content. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating, promoting, and improving our Services, and to develop new ones. Some Services may offer you ways to access and remove content that has been provided to that Service. Also, in some of our Services, some terms or settings narrow the scope of our use of the content submitted in those Services.

If you have a Hive Account, we may display your Profile name, Profile photo, and actions you take on Hive or third-party applications connected to your Hive Account in our Services. Please ensure you have the necessary rights to grant us this license for any content that you submit to our Services.

You can find more information about how Hive uses and stores content in the Privacy Policy or additional terms for particular Services. If you submit feedback or suggestions about our Services, we may use your feedback or suggestions without obligation to you.


About Software in our Services

When a Service requires or includes downloadable software, this software may update automatically on your device once a new version or feature is available. Some Services may let you adjust your automatic update settings.

Hive gives you a personal, worldwide, royalty-free, non-assignable, and non-exclusive license to use the software provided to you by Hive as part of the Services. This license is for the sole purpose of enabling you to use and enjoy the benefit of the Services as provided by Hive, in the manner permitted by these terms. You may not copy, modify, distribute, sell, or lease any part of our Services or included software, nor may you reverse engineer or attempt to extract the source code of that software, unless laws prohibit those restrictions or you have our written permission.

Open source software is important to us. Some software used in our Services may be offered under an open source license that we will make available to you. There may be provisions in the open source license that expressly override some of these terms.


Modifying and Discontinuing our Services

We believe that you own your data and preserving your access to such data is important. If we modify or discontinue any of our Services, we will give you reasonable advance notice and an opportunity to get information out of that Service.

We are constantly changing and improving our Services and may add or remove functionalities or features. You can stop using our Services at any time, although we’ll be sorry to see you go. Hive may also stop providing Services to you, or add or create new limits to our Services which will take effect after your most current payment cycle.


Our Warranties and Disclaimers

We provide our Services using a commercially reasonable level of skill and care and we hope that you will enjoy using them. However, there are certain things that we don’t promise about our Services.

Other than as expressly set out in these terms or additional terms, neither Hive nor its suppliers or distributors make any specific promises about the Services. For example, we do not make any commitments about the content within the Services, the specific functions of the services, or their reliability, availability, or ability to meet your needs. We provide the Services “as is”.

Some jurisdictions provide for certain warranties, like the implied warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement to the extent permitted by law, we exclude all warranties.


Liability for our Services

When permitted by law, Hive, and related suppliers and distributors, will not be responsible for lost profits, revenue, or data, financial losses or indirect, special, consequential, exemplary, or punitive damages.

To the extent permitted by law, the total liability of Hive, and its suppliers and distributors for any claims under these terms, including for any implied warranties, is limited to the amount you paid us to use the Services. In all cases, Hive, and its suppliers and distributors, will not be liable for any loss or damage that is not reasonably foreseeable.


Business uses of our Services

If you are using our Services on behalf of a business, that business accepts these terms. It will hold harmless and indemnify Hive and its affiliates, officers, agents, and employees from any claim, suit, or action arising from or related to the use of the Services or violation of these terms, including any liability or expense arising from claims, losses, damages, suits, judgments, or legal costs and fees.


Using our Services

Please use our Services as intended. You may use our Services only as permitted by law, including applicable export and re-export control laws and regulations. We may suspend or stop providing our Services to you if you do not comply with our terms or policies or if we are investigating suspected misconduct.

Using our Services gives you ownership of intellectual property rights in our Services for only that you submit. You may not use content from our Services unless you obtain permission from its owner or are otherwise permitted by law. These terms do not grant you the right to use any branding or logos used in our Services. Please do not remove, obscure, or alter any legal notices displayed in or along with our Services.

Our Services display content that is not owned by Hive. This content is the sole responsibility of the entity that makes it available. We may review content to determine whether it is illegal or violates our policies, and we may remove or refuse to display content that we reasonably believe violates our policies or the law.

In connection with your use of the Services, we may send you service announcements, administrative messages, and other information. You may opt out of some of those communications.


Privacy and Copyright Protection

Our Privacy Policy explains how we treat your professional data and protect your privacy when you use our Services. By using our Services, you agree that Hive may use such data in accordance with our Privacy Policy. We respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement and terminate accounts of repeat infringers according to the process set out in the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act.


About these Terms

We may modify these terms over time and will make an effort to notify you of any changes that are made. Changes do not apply retroactively and will become effective no sooner than they are posted. Changes addressing new functions for a Service or changes made for legal reasons will also be effective immediately.

If there is a conflict between these terms and the additional terms, the additional terms will control for that conflict. These terms control the relationship between Hive and you and do not create any third-party beneficiary rights. If you do not comply with these terms, and we don’t take action right away, this doesn’t mean that we are giving up any rights that we may have such as taking action in the future. If it turns out that a particular term is not enforceable, this will not affect any other terms. The laws of Florida, USA, excluding Florida’s conflict of laws rules, will apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to these terms or the Services. All claims arising out of or relating to these terms or the Services will be litigated exclusively in the federal or state courts of Broward County, Florida, USA, and you and Hive consent to personal jurisdiction in those courts.
