Code Genie – Platform Terms of Service

Welcome to Code Genie! We provide a platform where you can generate source code based on your data model (Platform).

In these Terms, when we say you or your, we mean both you and any entity you are authorised to represent (such as your employer). When we say we, us, or our, we mean Code Genie Pty Ltd (ACN 670 918 108).

These Terms form our contract with you, and set out our obligations as a service provider and your obligations as a customer. You cannot use our Platform unless you agree to these Terms.

Some capitalised words in these Terms have defined meanings, and each time that word is used in these Terms it has the same meaning. You can find a list of the defined words and their meaning at the end of these Terms.

Our Disclosures

Please read these Terms carefully before you accept. We draw your attention to the fact that:

These Terms do not intend to limit your rights and remedies at law, including any of your Consumer Law Rights.

  1. Engagement and Term
  1. These Terms apply from when you sign up for an Account, until the date on which your Account is terminated in accordance with these Terms. We grant you a right to use our Platform for this period of time only (which may be suspended or revoked in accordance with these Terms).

  2. Variations: We may amend these Terms at any time, by providing written notice to you. By clicking “I accept” or continuing to use our Platform after the notice or 30 days after notification (whichever date is earlier), you agree to the amended Terms. If you do not agree to the amendment, you may close your Account with effect from the date of the change in these Terms by providing written notice to us.

  1. We may suspend your access to our Platform where we reasonably believe there has been any unauthorised access to or use of our Platform (such as the unauthorised sharing of login details).

You are responsible for paying any levies or taxes associated with your use of our Platform (unless we are required by law to collect these on your behalf).

  3. You acknowledge and agree that the more detail you include in the data model you submit, the more bespoke the generated Source Code will be.

  1. Intellectual Property and Data

Our Platform

  1. We own all Intellectual Property Rights in our Platform.

  2. We may use any feedback or suggestions that you give us in any manner which we see fit (for example, to develop new features), and no benefit will be owed to you as a result of any use by us of your feedback or suggestions.

Your Data

  1. We do not own any of Your Data, but when you enter or upload any of Your Data into our Platform, you grant us the right to access, analyse, backup, copy, store, transmit, and otherwise use Your Data while you have an Account with us (and for a reasonable period of time afterwards).

  2. diagnose problems with our Platform;

  3. diagnose problems with or allow for debugging of the Source Code;

  4. improve, develop and protect our Platform;

  5. send you information we think may be of interest to you based on your marketing preferences;

Once anonymised, we own that data and may use it for our own purposes, such as to provide and improve our Platform, to develop new services or product offerings, to identify business trends, and for other uses we communicate to you. This may include making such anonymised data publicly available, provided it is not compiled using a sample size small enough to make underlying portions of Your Data identifiable.

  1. Confidential Information and Personal Information
  1. While using our Platform, you may share confidential information with us, and you may become aware of confidential information about us. You agree not to use our confidential information, and to take reasonable steps to protect our confidential information from being disclosed without our permission, and we agree to do the same for your confidential information. This also means making sure that any employees, contractors, professional advisors or agents of ours or yours only have access to confidential information on a ‘need-to-know basis’ (in other words, the disclosure is absolutely necessary), and that they also agree to not misuse or disclose such confidential information.

  2. However, either you or we may share confidential information with legal or regulatory authorities if required by law to do so.

  3. We collect, hold and disclose and use any Personal Information you provide to us in accordance with our privacy policy, available on our website, and applicable privacy laws.

  5. We may need to disclose Personal Information to third parties, such as our related companies or our service providers (for example, IT and administrative service providers and our professional advisors).

  1. Consumer Law Rights
  1. In some jurisdictions, you may have guarantees, rights or other remedies provided by law (Consumer Law Rights), and these Terms do not restrict your Consumer Law Rights. We will only be bound by your Consumer Law Rights and the express wording of these Terms. Our liability for a breach of your Consumer Law Rights is, unless the laws of your jurisdiction state otherwise, limited to either resupplying the Source Code, or paying the cost of having the Source Code resupplied.

  2. Subject to your Consumer Law Rights, we do not provide a refund for a change of mind or change in circumstance.

  3. If you accept these Terms in Australia, nothing in these Terms should be interpreted to exclude, restrict or modify the application of, or any rights or remedies you may have under, any part of the Australian Consumer Law (as set out in Schedule 2 of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth)).

  1. Liability
  1. Regardless of whatever else is stated in these Terms, to the maximum extent permitted by law:  

  1. neither we or you are liable for any Consequential Loss;
  2. a party’s liability for any Liability under these Terms will be reduced proportionately to the extent the relevant Liability was caused or contributed to by the actions (or inactions) of the other party, including any failure by the other party to mitigate its loss;
  3. (where our services are not ordinarily acquired for personal, domestic or household use or consumption) in respect of any failure by us to comply with relevant Consumer Law Rights, our Liability is limited (at our discretion) to supplying the Source Code again or paying the cost of having the Source Code supplied again; and
  4. our aggregate liability to you for any Liability arising from or in connection with these Terms will be limited to the Fees.

  2. breaches these Terms and that breach cannot be remedied.

  1. You may also terminate these Terms at any time by notifying us through your Account or to our email for notices (as set out in clause 11.8), and termination will take effect immediately.

  2. Upon termination of these Terms, we will retain Your Data (including copies) as required by law or regulatory requirements.

  1. General
  1. Assignment: You may not transfer or assign these Terms (including any benefits or obligations you have under these Terms) to any third party without our prior written consent. We may assign or transfer these Terms to a third party, or transfer any debt owed by you to us to a debt collector or other third party.

  2. Disputes: Neither we or you may commence court proceedings relating to any dispute, controversy or claim arising from, or in connection with, these Terms (including any question regarding its existence, validity or termination) (Dispute) unless we and you first meet (in good faith) to resolve the Dispute. Nothing in this clause will operate to prevent us or you from seeking urgent injunctive or equitable relief from a court of appropriate jurisdiction.

If the Dispute is not resolved at that initial meeting:

  1. where you are resident or incorporated in Australia, refer the matter to mediation, administered by the Australian Disputes Centre in accordance with Australian Disputes Centre Guidelines for Commercial Mediation; or

  2. Governing law: These Terms are governed by the laws of Queensland, and any matter relating to these Terms is to be determined exclusively by the courts in Queensland and any courts entitled to hear appeals from those courts. 

  3. Illegal Requests: We reserve the right to refuse any request for or in relation to our Platform that we deem inappropriate, unethical, unreasonable, illegal or otherwise non-compliant with these Terms.

  4. Marketing: You agree that we may send you electronic communications about our products and services. You may opt-out at any time by using the unsubscribe function in our electronic communications.

  9. Third Party Sites: Our Platform may contain links to websites operated by third parties. Unless we tell you otherwise, we do not control, endorse or approve, and are not responsible for, the content on those websites. We recommend that you make your own investigations in relation to the suitability of those websites. If you purchase goods or services from a third party website linked from our Platform, those goods or services are being provided by that third party, not us. We may receive a benefit (which may include a referral fee or a commission) should you visit certain third party websites through a link on our Platform, or for featuring certain goods or services on our Platform. We will make it clear by notice to you which (if any) goods or services, or website links, we receive a benefit from by featuring them on our Platform.
