We provide a platform that enables businesses and individuals to create automated chat flows that they can deploy across a wide range of messaging services, social media and other third-party platforms.

If you purchase or use our Services, you’re doing so through Manychat, and such purchase and use is subject to this Agreement; provided, that if you’ve entered into a separate agreement or order form with us governing the purchase or use of our Services, such separate agreement or order form will govern in the event of a conflict with this Agreement.

2. Account, Password, Security, and Phone Use

You must register with Manychat and create an account to use the Services (an “Account”) and as part of that process you will be requested to provide certain information, including without limitation your name, phone number and email address, which may be provided by linking certain services, including without limitation Instagram, Facebook, WhatsApp or Telegram, to your Account.  By using the Services, you agree to provide true, accurate, current and complete information as prompted by the registration process and to maintain and promptly update the Account information to keep it accurate, current and complete. You are the sole authorized user of your Account. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any login and password provided by you or given to you by Manychat for accessing the Services. You are solely and fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or Account, even if not authorized by you.  Users are responsible for the content users upload to their Account and use of any user’s Account, and Manychat expressly disclaims any liability derived therefrom. Should you suspect that any unauthorized party may be using your password or Account or you suspect any other breach of security, you agree to contact Manychat immediately.

The person signing up for the Services will be the contracting party (“Account Representative”) for the purposes of these Terms of Service and will be the person who is authorized to use any corresponding Account we provide to the Account Representative in connection with the Services; provided, however, that if you are signing up for the Services on behalf of your employer, your employer shall be the Account Representative. As the Account Representative, you are solely responsible for complying with these Terms of Service and only you are entitled to all benefits accruing thereto. Your Account is not transferable to any other person or account.  If you are an Agency (as defined below) using our Services to provide services to a Business Owner (as defined below), please read Section 3 below.

We reserve the right to refuse the Services to anyone for any reason at any time.  Manychat may terminate or limit your right to use the Services in the event that we are investigating or believe that you have breached any provision of this Agreement without any notice. If Manychat terminates or limits your right to use the Services pursuant to this section, you are prohibited from registering and creating a new Account under your name, a fake or borrowed name, or the name of any third party, even if you may be acting on behalf of the third party.

Even after your right to use the Services is terminated or limited, this Agreement will remain enforceable against you. Manychat reserves the right to take appropriate legal action, including but not limited to pursuing arbitration in accordance with Section 19 of these Terms of Service.

Manychat reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, all or any portion of the Services at its sole discretion. Manychat is not liable to you for any modification or discontinuance of all or any portion of the Services. Manychat has the right to restrict anyone from completing registration as a user if Manychat believes such person may threaten the safety and integrity of the Services, or if, in Manychat’s discretion, such restriction is necessary to address any other reasonable business concern.

Following the termination or cancellation of your Account (as defined below), we reserve the right to delete all your data, including any User Generated Content, in the normal course of operation. Your data cannot be recovered once your Account is terminated or canceled.

If there is no activity in your Account (which includes login activity, conversation activity, payment transactions or a planned broadcast) for at least 18 months, consecutively, we will notify you by sending an email to the email address associated with your Account and give you the option of keeping your Account open.  If you do not respond to our notice within thirty days, we reserve the right to close your account and delete all your data.

You have one year to use any prepaid amount added to your Manychat wallet balance.  Should such prepaid amount not be used within one year, we will notify you of your unused balance by sending an email to the email address associated with your Account, and at our discretion, (i) we’ll refund the balance, the method of such withdrawal shall be determined by us in our sole discretion, or (ii) we’ll provide you with a credit toward future purchases of our Services. If you do not respond to our notice within thirty days, you forfeit your rights to use such balance, and such amount shall be deemed payment for services.

The Services may contain links (such as hyperlinks) to third-party websites. Such links do not constitute endorsement by Manychat or association with those websites, their content or their operators. Such links (including without limitation external websites that are framed by the Services as well as any advertisements displayed in connection therewith) are provided as an information service, for reference and convenience only. Manychat does not control any such websites and is not responsible for their (i) availability or accuracy, or (ii) content, advertising, products, or services. It is your responsibility to evaluate the content and usefulness of the information obtained from other websites. You acknowledge and agree that Manychat is not involved in the creation or development of third-party websites and disclaims any responsibility for third-party websites and cannot be liable for claims arising out of or relating to third-party websites. Further, you acknowledge and agree that Manychat has no obligation to monitor, review, or remove links to third-party websites, but reserves the right to limit or remove links to third-party websites on the Services at its sole discretion.

The use of any website controlled, owned or operated by third parties is governed by the terms and conditions of use and privacy policies for those websites. You access such third-party websites at your own risk. Manychat expressly disclaims any liability arising in connection with your use and/or viewing of any websites or other material associated with links that may appear on the Services. You hereby agree to hold Manychat harmless from any liability that may result from the use of links that may appear on the Services.

As part of the functionality of the Services, you may link your Account with online accounts you may have with third-party service providers, such as Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Telegram (each such account, a “Third-Party Account”), by either: (i) providing your Third-Party Account login information through the Services; or (ii) allowing Manychat to access your Third-Party Account, as is permitted under the applicable terms and conditions that govern your use of each Third-Party Account. You represent that you are entitled to disclose your Third-Party Account login information to Manychat and/or grant Manychat access to your Third-Party Account (including, but not limited to, for use for the purposes described herein), without breach by you of any of the terms and conditions that govern your use of the applicable Third-Party Account and without obligating Manychat to pay any fees or making Manychat subject to any usage limitations imposed by such third-party service providers. By granting Manychat access to any Third-Party Accounts, you understand that (1) Manychat may access, make available and store (if applicable) any content that you have provided to and stored in your Third-Party Account (the “SNS Content”) so that it is available on and through the Services via your Account, and (2) Manychat may submit and receive additional information to your Third-Party Account to the extent you are notified of this when you link your Account with the Third-Party Account. Unless otherwise specified in these Terms of Service, all SNS Content, if any, shall be considered to be User Generated Content. Depending on the Third-Party Accounts you choose, and subject to the privacy settings that you have set in such Third-Party Accounts, personally identifiable information that you post to your Third-Party Accounts may be available on and through your Account on the Services. Please note that if a Third-Party Account or associated service becomes unavailable or Manychat’s access to such Third-Party Account is terminated by the third-party service provider, then SNS Content may no longer be available on and through the Services. You will have the ability to disable the connection between your Account on the Services and your Third-Party Accounts at any time, as set forth below. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE THIRD-PARTY PROVIDERS ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR THIRD-PARTY ACCOUNTS IS GOVERNED SOLELY BY YOUR AGREEMENT(S) WITH SUCH THIRD PARTY PROVIDERS. Manychat makes no effort to review any SNS Content for any purpose, including but not limited to, for accuracy, legality, or non-infringement, and Manychat is not responsible for any SNS Content.

We may provide you with access to third-party tools (“Third-Party Tools”) which we do not monitor and over which we have no control or input. You acknowledge and agree that we provide access to such tools on an “as-is” and “as-available” basis without any warranties, representations or conditions of any kind and without any endorsement. We shall have no liability whatsoever arising from or relating to your use of Third-Party Tools. Any use by you of Third-Party Tools offered through the Services is entirely at your own risk and discretion, and you should ensure that you are familiar with and approve of the terms on which tools are provided by the relevant third-party provider.

13. Optional Manychat-Provided Tools

You hereby grant to us a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, sublicensable, non-exclusive, non-transferable, royalty-free license and right to use, copy, modify and distribute your Applications and Integration Products.  You shall retain ownership of your Applications and Integration Products.  By using the Manychat Dev Program you do not acquire ownership of any rights in the Manychat Dev Program, Manychat’s data or content or the Services.

We reserve the right, with or without notice and for any reason, to (i) cease providing, alter, modify or disable the Manychat Dev Program or provide new tools and related services, (ii) charge fees for access or use of the Manychat Dev Program, (iii) provide or cease providing support for the Manychat Dev Program, (iv) deactivate or remove your access to the Manychat Dev Program, (v) accept, reject, suspend or remove your Integration Products and Applications from the Services for any reason, (vi) make your Applications and Integration Products publicly available or private in accordance with our Review Process outlined at support.Manychat.com/support/home, and (vii) independently develop products or services that may compete with your Applications and/or Integration Products or other products and services.  You agree that Manychat may monitor and audit your use of the Manychat Dev Program to ensure compliance with these Terms of Service.  You will assist us with such monitoring and/or auditing by providing us with information on your Applications and/or Integration Products and data and security practices.

You acknowledge and agree that we provide access to the Manychat Dev Program “as-is” and “as-available” without any warranties, representations or conditions of any kind and without any endorsement. We shall have no liability whatsoever arising from or relating to your use of the Manychat Dev Program. You acknowledge and agree to comply with the documentation and resources published from time to time by Manychat regarding the use of the Manychat Dev Program.

You agree to keep confidential and not disclose, divulge or use for any purpose and will protect to the same degree as it protects its own confidential information any confidential information obtained from us with respect to the Manychat Dev Program or in connection with your use of the Services and Manychat Dev Program.

17. Disclaimer of Warranties

THE SERVICES IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” BASIS WITHOUT WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. Manychat MAKES NO WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS ABOUT THE RELIABILITY, TIMELINESS, SECURITY, ACCURACY OR COMPLETENESS OF THE SERVICES, ANY CONTENT PROVIDED BY OR TRANSMITTED VIA THE SERVICES OR THE CONTENT OF ANY SITES LINKED TO THE SERVICES, AND ASSUMES NO LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY IN CONTRACT, WARRANTY OR IN TORT FOR ANY (I) BUGS, ERRORS, MISTAKES, OR INACCURACIES OF CONTENT, (II) PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, OF ANY NATURE WHATSOEVER, RESULTING FROM YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE SERVICES, (III) ANY ACCESS TO OR USE OF OUR SECURE SERVERS AND/OR ANY AND ALL PERSONAL INFORMATION, BUSINESS INFORMATION AND/OR FINANCIAL INFORMATION STORED THEREIN; AND (IV) EVENTS BEYOND OUR REASONABLE CONTROL.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL Manychat AND AFFILIATES OR THEIR CORPORATE PARTNERS, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, CONTRACTORS, AGENTS, SUPPLIERS OR LICENSORS BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, ACTUAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, ECONOMIC, SPECIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA, LOSS OF GOODWILL, SERVICE INTERRUPTION, COMPUTER DAMAGE, SYSTEM FAILURE, FAILURE TO STORE ANY INFORMATION OR OTHER CONTENT MAINTAINED OR TRANSMITTED BY Manychat, OR THE COST OF SUBSTITUTE PRODUCTS OR SERVICES) ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF THE SAME. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU IN THEIR ENTIRETY.

IF, NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING EXCLUSIONS, IT IS DETERMINED THAT Manychat AND AFFILIATES OR THEIR CORPORATE PARTNERS ARE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES, IN NO EVENT WILL THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY, WHETHER ARISING IN CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, EXCEED THE LOWER OF (I) THE TOTAL FEES PAID BY YOU TO Manychat DURING THE SIX MONTHS PRIOR TO THE TIME SUCH CLAIM AROSE OR (II) ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100), TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.

18. Indemnification

You hereby agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Manychat and its officers, directors, employees, agents, attorneys, insurers, successors and assigns (the “Indemnified Parties”) from and against any and all Liabilities incurred in connection with (i) your use or inability to use the Services, (ii) your breach or violation of this Agreement; (iii) your violation of any law, or the rights of any user or third party; and (iv) any content submitted by you or using your Account to the Services, including, but not limited to the extent such content may infringe on the intellectual rights of a third party or otherwise be illegal or unlawful. You also agree to indemnify the Indemnified Parties for any Liabilities resulting from your use of software robots, spiders, crawlers, or similar data gathering and extraction tools, or any other action you take that imposes an unreasonable burden or loan on our infrastructure. Manychat reserves the right, in its own sole discretion, to assume the exclusive defense and control at its own expense of any matter otherwise subject to your indemnification. You will not, in any event, settle any claim or matter without the prior written consent of Manychat.

19. Dispute Resolution – Arbitration & Class Action Waiver

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY — IT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND GOVERNS HOW YOU AND Manychat CAN BRING CLAIMS AGAINST EACH OTHER. THIS SECTION WILL, WITH LIMITED EXCEPTION, REQUIRE YOU AND Manychat TO SUBMIT CLAIMS AGAINST EACH OTHER TO BINDING AND FINAL ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS.

You agree that, in the event any dispute or claim arises out of or relating to your use of the Services, you will contact us by submitting your dispute or claim via www.manychat.com/support, and you and Manychat will attempt in good faith to negotiate a written resolution of the matter directly. You agree that if the matter remains unresolved for 30 days after notification (via certified mail or personal delivery), such matter will be deemed a “Dispute” as defined below.  Except for the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief described under the “Binding Arbitration” section below, should you file any arbitration claims, or any administrative or legal actions without first having attempted to resolve the matter by mediation, then you agree that you will not be entitled to recover attorneys' fees, even if you may have been entitled to them otherwise.

Binding Arbitration. You and Manychat agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement or to your use of the Services (collectively “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights. This means that you and Manychat both agree to waive the right to a trial by jury. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you may bring a claim against Manychat in “small claims” court, instead of by arbitration, but only if the claim is eligible under the rules of the small claims court and is brought in an individual, non-class, and non-representative basis, and only for so long as it remains in the small claims court and in an individual, non-class, and non-representative basis.

Class Action Waiver. You and Manychat agree that any proceedings to resolve Disputes will be conducted on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated, or representative action. This means that you and Manychat both agree to waive the right to participate as a plaintiff as a class member in any class action proceeding. Further, unless you and Manychat agree otherwise in writing, the arbitrator in any Dispute may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not preside over any form of class action proceeding.

Arbitration Administration and Rules. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution’ section. (The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879).

Arbitration Process. A party who desires to initiate the arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of California and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of arbitrators with relevant experience. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with AAA Rules.

Arbitration Location and Procedure. Unless you and Manychat agree otherwise, the seat of the arbitration shall be in San Francisco, California. If your claim does not exceed USD$10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and Manychat submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing, and the arbitrator then determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds USD$10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by AAA Rules. Subject to AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration. Hearings may be conducted by telephone or video conference, if requested and agreed to by the parties.

Arbitrator’s Decision and Governing Law. The arbitrator shall apply California law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator will render an award within the timeframe specified in the AAA Rules. Judgment on the arbitration may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Any award of damages by an arbitrator must be consistent with the “Disclaimer of Warranties” section above. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief in favor of the claimant only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim.

Fees. Each party’s responsibility to pay the arbitration filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will depend on the circumstances of the arbitration and are set forth in the AAA Rules.

20. Governing Law

Except as provided in Section 14 or expressly provided in writing otherwise, this Agreement and your use of the Services will be governed by, and will be construed under, the laws of the State of California, without regard to choice of law principles. This choice of law provision is only intended to specify the use of California law to interpret this Agreement.

21. No Agency; No Employment

No agency, partnership, joint venture, employer-employee or franchiser-franchisee relationship is intended or created by this Agreement.

22. General Provisions

Failure by Manychat to enforce any provision of this Agreement will not be construed as a waiver of any provision or right. This Agreement constitutes the complete and exclusive agreement between you and Manychat with respect to its subject matter and supersedes and governs any and all prior agreements or communications. The provisions of this Agreement are intended to be interpreted in a manner which makes them valid, legal, and enforceable. Except for the “Class Action Waiver” in Section 19, in the event any provision is found to be partially or wholly invalid, illegal or unenforceable, (i) such provision shall be modified or restructured to the extent and in the manner necessary to render it valid, legal, and enforceable or, (ii) if such provision cannot be so modified or restructured, it shall be excised from the Agreement without affecting the validity, legality or enforceability of any of the remaining provisions. This Agreement may not be assigned or transferred by you without our prior written approval. We may assign or transfer this Agreement without your consent, including but not limited to assignments: (1) to a parent or subsidiary, (2) to an acquirer of assets, or (3) to any other successor or acquirer. Any assignment in violation of this section shall be null and void. This Agreement will inure to the benefit of Manychat, its successors and assigns.

23. Changes to this Agreement and the Services

Manychat reserves the right, at its sole and absolute discretion, to change, modify, add to, supplement, suspend, discontinue, or delete any of the terms and conditions of this Agreement (including these Terms of Service and Privacy Policy) and review, improve, modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Services or any content or information through the Services at any time, effective with or without prior notice and without any liability to Manychat. Manychat will endeavor to notify you of material changes by email but will not be liable for any failure to do so. If any future changes to this Agreement are unacceptable to you or cause you to no longer be in compliance with this Agreement, you must terminate, and immediately stop using, the Services. Your continued use of the Services following any revision to this Agreement constitutes your complete and irrevocable acceptance of any and all such changes. Manychat may also impose limits on certain features or restrict your access to part or all of the Services without notice or liability.

24. No Rights of Third Parties

None of the terms of this Agreement are enforceable by any persons who are not a party to this Agreement.

You consent to receive any agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications (collectively, “Notices”) to which this Agreement refers electronically, including without limitation by e-mail or by posting Notices on this Site. You agree that all Notices that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing. Unless otherwise specified in this Agreement, all notices under this Agreement will be in writing and will be deemed to have been duly given when received, if personally delivered or sent by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested; when receipt is electronically confirmed, if transmitted by facsimile or email; or the day after it is sent, if sent for next day delivery by a recognized overnight delivery service.
