Terms of Service

The following sets forth the general terms and conditions (also referred to as the "terms" or the "agreement") between Pipemode Technologies Ltd. (or "Pipemode", also referred to as "we", "us" and "our" throughout these terms) and potential users (also referred to as "startups" or "profiles") and potential (digital) clients (also referred to as "partnering companies") as well as visitors (individuals not yet registered) on the website (or "platform") of Pipemode. Collectively, potential user, potential clients  and visitors are referred to as "users" of our website, an individual of these three groups is referred to as a "user". In these terms users may be addressed as "you" (also referred to as "your"). These terms and conditions apply whenever users access the website. By accessing our website or using our services, you accept these terms and conditions and are bound by them (both on behalf of yourself and the entity that you represent). You may not access and/or use our services under the age of 18. If you do not agree with all terms and provisions in this agreement, you are not permitted to access our services and/or use our website.

General

The aim of Pipemode Technologies Ltd. is to connect potential startups with potential (digital) clients. Startups can register on our platform using their information and data, and thus provide information regarding their business status and experience. Pipemode does perform user-related background checks and does vouch for the truthfulness of any of their statements. You agree that Pipemode Technologies Ltd. is not liable for the acts (or lack thereof) of its users. Pipemode’s employees may at their own discretion amend or adjust the information and (within the platform) promote a startup with a promising profile. The given profiles can be reviewed by partnering companies, companies which have entered into a business relationship with Pipemode. Pipemode reserves the right to refuse service to certain companies/individuals/competitors at its own discretion. If a partnering company shows interest, Pipemode can connect both parties. Partnering companies can also directly contact startups. Any interaction between the parties/users on our platform is solely their responsibility. The users agree that Pipemode Technologies Ltd. is not liable for any liability arising out of these interactions. That said, all users must agree to interact within the bounds of common decency when using this platform. Pipemode reserves the right to temporarily suspend services to undertake maintenance activities, and does not guarantee uninterrupted availability, reachability or faultlessness of the platform/services.

 

Confidentiality and restricted use of startup information

The use of the provided startup information is not restricted to this agreement. Part of the voluntary provided information may be reproduced or transmitted in any form or by any means – electronic, photocopying or otherwise – without prior written permission of Pipemode Technologies Ltd. Partnering companies may use the information only for the internally intended evaluation process and only for a reasonable duration - solely within the specific legal entity with which Pipemode cooperates. The same restrictions also apply towards the handling of affiliated companies/partners: without prior explicit and written consent of Pipemode Technologies Ltd., no information may be provided to any affiliated companies or partners. One specific login/account of a partnering company can only be used by the assigned person within that legal entity. Any form of violation will be strictly penalised.

 

Personal information

The treatment of your personal information is stated in our Privacy Policy. Please do not provide any more information than required during the registration of your profile. By using our platform you automatically agree to commit yourself to our privacy policy.

Deleting your profile as a Startup

Pipemode Technologies Ltd. provides the possibility to deactivate your account. By deactivating your account, potential partners will no longer be able to find you. To request a deactivation, send an email to info@pipemode.com requesting deactivation. A deactivated account can be reactivated at a later time, again with a request in email form. You can also request the deletion of your profile by sending an email to info@pipemode.com indicating your request. With the deletion, all your saved personal information will be removed entirely. A reactivation is not possible in this case. You will then need to create a new profile in case you want to reuse the service. Deactivation/reactivation or deletion may take 7-10 working days (without guarantee for this time period, but we will do our best).
