Terms of Service
Thank you for choosing Fathym!
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF SERVICE CAREFULLY BEFORE USING ANY FATHYM PRODUCT OR SERVICE. BY USING ANY FATHYM PRODUCT OR SERVICE YOU HAVE ACCEPTED THESE TERMS OF SERVICE. IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, DO NOT USE ANY FATHYM PRODUCT OR SERVICE.
Fathym, Inc. (“Fathym”) is constantly improving our website, products and services (collectively, our “Products and Services”), and that means sometimes we have to change the legal terms under which our Products and Services are offered. Fathym may modify all or any part of these Terms of Service from time to time without notice to you; you should visit our website often so you are aware of your current rights and responsibilities. If you previously entered into a prior version of terms of services, those terms no longer apply. Your continued use of our Products and Services after changes to the Terms of Service have been published constitutes your binding acceptance of the updated Terms of Service. If at any time the Terms of Service are no longer acceptable to you, you should immediately cease all use of our Products and Services.
THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISIONS THAT REQUIRE THE USE OF ARBITRATION TO RESOLVE DISPUTES, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS. PLEASE READ THEM CAREFULLY.
Our website provides you with access to our Products and Services, as well as information, including but not limited to company details, industry insights and news, technological updates and access to Fathym’s blog. Fathym is under no obligation to provide such information, products and services to you. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance the current website, products and services shall be subject to these Terms of Service.
You acknowledge that Fathym may establish general practices and limits concerning use of our Products and Services. You further acknowledge that Fathym reserves the right to modify these general practices and limits from time to time. Fathym reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, our website (or any part thereof), or any products and services, with or without notice. You agree that Fathym shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of our Products and Services.
You must be a human to use our Products and Services. Our Products and Services are not available to individuals under the age of thirteen (13) or who do not meet any of the other qualifications included in this agreement. If you are under age thirteen (13) or do not meet the qualifications in this agreement, do not attempt to access or use this website or any products and services. If you are age thirteen (13) or older but younger than age eighteen (18), then you may access and use our Products and Services only if your parent or guardian accepts this agreement on your behalf. If you are a parent or guardian entering this agreement for the benefit of a child between age thirteen (13) and eighteen (18), then you agree you will be solely responsible for all access to and use of our Products and Services.
An account represents an individual’s authorization to login to and use certain Products and Services. Organizations may establish accounts as shared workspaces for multiple users associated with a single entity. Subject to these Terms of Service, you retain ultimate administrative control over your account and the content within it, and the “owner” of an organization’s account has ultimate administrative control over that organization’s account and the content within it. If you are the owner of an organization’s account under these Terms of Service, we consider you responsible for the actions that are performed by any user through your organization’s account, and your organization is liable for any misuse by a user granted access to your organization’s account.
Fathym has the right to suspend or terminate your access to all or any part of our Products and Services at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice, effective immediately. Fathym reserves the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements. All provisions of this agreement which, by their nature, should survive termination will survive termination, including without limitation ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.
4. USER NAME
If you have an account, you agree to (i) provide Fathym with accurate, complete and up to date information; (ii) update your information to keep it accurate, current and complete; and (iii) comply with these Terms of Service.

You may not select a user name that impersonates someone else, is or may be illegal, or may be protected by trademark or other proprietary rights, is vulgar or offensive or may cause confusion. Fathym reserves the right to reject any user name in our sole discretion.
You agree not to sell or transfer your use of or access to any product or service or permit use to anyone else whose account was suspended or terminated through your user name or password.
