Terms and conditions to use utobo

Last updated: 07.28.2023

Please read these Utobo User Agreement ("Terms") thoroughly before you engage with our platform or establish an account. By doing so, you confirm that you understand and accept these Terms, which forms a legally binding agreement between you and Utobo, INC., as well as its associated entities, referred to together as “Utobo”, “we”, “us”, or “our”.

IMPORTANT: THESE TERMS CONTAIN AN AGREEMENT FOR ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER. This signifies that you agree to resolve any disagreements through arbitration rather than a court case, and you won't join with others to bring a joint lawsuit against us.

To clarify, here's what some key terms mean: Utobo's platform enables you to construct and oversee your digital business (a “online store”), manage your customers, and execute marketing initiatives (an "Email Marketing"), among other features. This platform is run by Utobo and is accessible on our website, termed the “Utobo Site”. Any new tools or functionalities we introduce also adhere to these Terms.

Our "Team" includes our employees and representatives. As a Utobo customer or a representative of an organization that utilizes Utobo, you're known as a "Creator" (or "you"). A "Contact" is someone you communicate with via our platform. "Content" refers to items such as your trademarks, copyrighted materials, products, or services you sell on the platform, and data you upload or distribute in relation to your account or Site.

The rules governing the use of our platform are detailed in these Terms, along with our House Rules, Privacy Policy, the Utobo Data Protection Addendum, and other regulations present in Policy Center (collectively, the “Utobo Policies”). Our Privacy Policy and Cookie Statement outline our practices in handling your data as a Creator. If you don't agree with these rules, you are required to stop using our platform.

Additional rules may apply to certain features, including add-ons to your Utobo account ("Add-ons"). These Terms are applicable to the use of Add-ons unless specified otherwise. By using an Add-on, you consent to its Additional Terms. Some Creators may access unique features based on their previous usage or status.

Updating Terms and Conditions

Utobo has the right to amend or revise these Terms as necessary. Changes will be posted on this page, and come into effect immediately or on the designated date. Using the platform after a change implies agreement with the new Terms. Discontinuing use is necessary if you disagree with the changes. Reach out to us at support@Utobo.com for any queries about the Terms.

Platform Terms and Conditions

Welcome and thank you for choosing Utobo. We highly value our creators and their business ambitions. If you're using the platform for a company or organization, you're agreeing to these Terms on their behalf, assuming you're authorized to do so.

Accessing or using our platform means accepting these Terms, other Utobo Policies, and adhering to all relevant laws and regulations. Utobo is not an educational institution or content provider. We don't employ creators, users, entrepreneurs, customers, experts, or partners, nor do we take responsibility for interactions with customers or contacts, beyond offering the platform. Utobo isn't liable for disputes, claims, losses, injuries, or damages arising from your relationships with your customers or contacts.

Your Utobo Account

Account Registration

To use our platform, subscribe to Utobo and create an account. We need your full legal name, business address, phone number, a valid email, and any other necessary information. We reserve the right to reject subscriptions or cancel accounts at any time.

Please confirm that you're using the platform or other Utobo services for business, not personal or family, purposes.


To open an account and use Utobo, you must:

Be at least 18 years old (or the age requirement in your area) and capable of entering contracts. If not an individual, provide proof that your entity is formed legally under your jurisdiction's laws, have the authority to agree to these Terms, and authorize your representative to bind you to these Terms.

− Complete account registration.

− Agree to these Terms and all others linked within.

− Provide accurate, complete, and current contact and billing information.

− Platform use must align with applicable law. Users in embargoed countries (such as Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Syria, Russia, the Crimea, Donetsk, or Luhansk regions) or on U.S. government watchlists can't use the platform.

By using the platform, you're asserting that you meet all the above requirements, and won't use the platform in violation of laws or regulations.

Utobo reserves the right to refuse service, close accounts, or change eligibility requirements anytime.

Account Management

The account's creator is the contracted party for our Terms and the authorized user of the account provided. Your name or your business's full legal name must be visible on your site.

If you're signing up on behalf of your employer or entity, they will be considered the "Creator." Please use your employer-issued email address and make sure you have the authority to bind them to these Terms.

Account sharing is not permitted. A creator can have multiple sites but a site can be associated with only one creator unless Utobo gives written consent.

Depending on your pricing plan, you may allow employees or independent contractors (Admin Users) to use your account, provided their use benefits you and aligns with these Terms. You're responsible for their access, use, and compliance. Secure your password and any other credentials. Utobo isn't liable for losses or damages from your failure to secure your account. If you suspect unauthorized access, contact support@Utobo.com.

All disclosures and notices can be delivered via your Utobo Dashboard or your primary email. Check your primary email frequently and ensure it can send and receive messages. Keep your contact and payment details up to date.

Technical support is available only to Utobo creators at support@utobo.com. You're responsible for maintaining and backing up your content and contact information. Utobo isn't liable for any failures to store or loss or corruption of such information.

Accounts with no activity for over 12 months may be terminated and their content deleted, though we will try to alert you via email before termination.

Ownership Disputes

In ownership disputes, Utobo may request documentation to verify ownership. We reserve the right to determine rightful ownership and transfer the account accordingly. If ownership can't be determined reasonably, the account may be deactivated until the dispute is resolved.

Payment Obligations and Details

3.1. Charges

As a user of the Utobo platform, you agree to abide by all applicable payment terms and rates as outlined to you. Utobo charges on a subscription basis, with payments made either monthly or annually, depending on the chosen plan ("Subscription Fees"). The billing is managed by third-party processors, Stripe and PayPal, and their processing policies apply. All transactional fees ("Transaction Fees") relating to these processors are also your responsibility. Additional charges ("Additional Fees") may apply depending on the purchase or use of other products or services. Collectively, these are referred to as "Fees".

To ensure smooth transactions, maintain a valid payment method with us. You'll be billed via your selected payment method ("Authorized Payment Method"), and Utobo will continue to charge this method until your Account is terminated and all pending Fees are cleared.

Your payment information, including partial credit card details and expiration date, will be securely stored via our third-party providers, Stripe and PayPal. Please update your payment details as necessary. You authorize us to charge your credit card using any updated information. All fees are in U.S. dollars unless stated otherwise.

3.2. Subscription Plans

Subscription plans for our platform are billed in advance on a recurring, periodic basis ("billing cycle"). Depending on your subscription, billing cycles are either monthly or annually. We will charge your Authorized Payment Method at the beginning of every new billing cycle. You may cancel your subscription at any time; however, the subscription will continue until the end of the current billing cycle.

3.3. Promotions and Trials

From time to time, Utobo may offer promotional offers, plans, or trials. Eligibility for these offers is determined by Utobo. You will be charged the full price of the selected plan following the expiration of any Trial Period unless you cancel prior. We will notify you of the upcoming end of your Trial Period.

3.4. Plan Changes

If you change your plan during a Trial Period, the trial will end immediately. The new rate will be charged to your Authorized Payment Method on your next billing cycle for any upgrade or downgrade in plan level. Any credit due to a plan downgrade will be applied to your next billing cycle(s).

If Utobo cannot process payment through an Authorized Payment Method, we will make subsequent attempts and notify you of the failure. If Fees remain unpaid 14 days after notification, Utobo may suspend access to your account.

Utobo may terminate your account if the outstanding Fees are unpaid within 30 days of notification.

During account suspension or termination, you may lose access to features, which can impact your ability to provide content, products, and services to your customers. Utobo is not liable for any resulting disputes or damages.
