Terms of Use

Introduction

The Residential Energy Dynamics, LLC (“RED”, “we”, or “us”), a limited liability corporation, owns and maintains the www.redcalc.com website, RED Calc Free tools, and RED Calc Pro web application. RED is located at 596 Grover Hill Road, Bethel, Maine, USA. These Terms of Service (which we refer to as the “Terms”) cover your use of and access to the applications and services provided by RED. Our Privacy Policy explains how we collect and use your information

By accessing and/or using any application (RED Calc Pro, RED Calc Free or the RED website), you confirm that you accept and agree to be bound by these terms and acknowledge that they constitute a legally binding contract between us and you (and, if relevant, any organization on whose behalf you are acting). If you are acting on behalf of any organization, you confirm that you have the requisite authority, power, and right to fully bind that organization. If you (or, if relevant, your organization) do not agree to all of these terms (or if you do not have the right to bind your organization), you are not permitted to access or use any application or service, and you should not proceed further.

In these terms, unless the context otherwise requires, all further references to you (and your, etc.) mean both you as an individual user and also the organization on whose behalf you are acting (if any).

If you live outside the European Economic Area or Switzerland, the laws of Maine, USA, will apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms. All claims arising out of or relating to these Terms will be litigated exclusively in the federal or state courts of Oxford County, Maine, USA, and you and RED consent to personal jurisdiction in those courts.

If you live in the European Economic Area or Switzerland, the laws and courts of your country of residence will apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms and you can bring legal proceedings in your local courts. Disputes may be submitted for online resolution to the European Commission Online Dispute Resolution platform.

We may modify these Terms or any additional terms that apply to the RED website or RED Calc Pro, for example: to reflect changes to RED Calc Pro or the law, custom, or political or economic policy; or in response to guidelines issued by regulators or relevant industry bodies; or to enable RED to meet its obligations. You should look at the Terms regularly. We’ll post notice of modifications to these Terms on this page. We’ll post notice of modified additional terms (“Additional Terms”) in RED Calc Pro and will provide prior notice of material changes to the Terms to you. Changes will not apply retroactively and will become effective no sooner than 14 days after they are posted or notified to you. However, changes addressing new functions or features (“New Services”) or changes made for legal reasons will be effective immediately. If you do not agree to the modified terms for a New Service, you should discontinue your use of the RED website, RED Calc Free, or RED Calc Pro.

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 RED and you. They 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.

RED does not control or endorse the content, messages or information found in any Communication Service and, therefore, RED specifically disclaims any liability with regard to the Communication Services and any actions resulting from your participation in any Communication Service.

RED Calc Pro Web Application

Your use of RED Calc Pro requires that you agree to these Terms. Please read them carefully. If you do not understand the Terms or do not accept any part of them, then you should not use RED Calc Pro.

YOUR USE OF RED CALC PRO

RED Calc Pro may only be accessed and used on a device owned or controlled by you and running the relevant operating system for which the Application concerned was designed, so you must make sure you have a compatible device which meets all the necessary technical specifications to enable you to use RED Calc Pro.

Applications (or upgrades) you access and Services you request by registering to create an account with us, are made available to you immediately and you acknowledge and agree that this is the case and that, therefore, you will have no right to change your mind once you access the Application (after any trial period) or you register to create your account (as the case may be).

It is assumed you have obtained permission from the owner of any device that is controlled, but not owned, by you to access an Application from that device. You accept responsibility, under these terms and conditions, for all access to, and use of, any Application by you on any device, whether or not it is owned by you.

You acknowledge that the mobile service provider for any mobile device on which you access or use any Application or Service may charge for internet access (including mobile data usage) on that device. Do not use RED Calc Pro in a way that distracts you and prevents you from obeying traffic or safety laws.

We cannot and do not guarantee the continuous, uninterrupted or error-free operability of any Application or Service or that any Application or Service will respond at a certain speed (since this depends on several factors outside our control).

Your Content (Data)

RED Calc Pro allows you to upload, submit, store, send and receive content. You retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that you hold in that content (data). In short, what belongs to you, remains yours.

When you upload, submit, store, send or receive content to or through RED Calc Pro, you give RED 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.

You are responsible for all activities that occur under your password and must notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of which you become aware. We reserve the right to disable any password at any time, if in our opinion you have failed to comply with any of the provisions of these terms and conditions or if any details you provide to register as a user prove to be false.

You must cease to use and delete your password from any of your records upon termination of your account, for whatever reason.

Each of the available paid-for subscriptions will require you to pay a fee, the amount of which will be as set out on the RED website. The fee you pay gives you access to RED Calc Pro with its relevant features as indicated on the website. Subscription fees are payable monthly or yearly unless we offer other options.

Payment must be made by credit or debit card. We accept payment by most major credit and debit cards. You should be aware that online payment transactions are subject to validation checks by your card issuer and we are not responsible if your card issuer declines to authorize payment for any reason. Please note, it is possible that your card issuer may charge you an online handling fee or processing fee. We are not responsible for this fee.

It is important to note that your subscription will automatically renew (as long as we continue to make the relevant subscription available) every month or year (or, in the case of a longer subscription, at the end of the relevant period), at the then-current fee (as indicated on the RED website) unless you cancel your subscription through the cancellation functionality provided for your account on the website. We will notify you, by email and on the website, of any increase in the applicable fees.
