Welcome to Holdshort.com!
Thanks for accessing our website, subscribing to and/or using our online aircraft flight scheduling software (collectively “Services”). The Services are provided by Holdshort Aviation Systems, LLC (“Holdshort”) of PO Box 100, Carson City, Nevada 89702.
By using our Services, you are agreeing to these terms. Please read them carefully.
Using our Services
You must follow any policies made available to you within the Services.
Don’t misuse our Services. For example, don’t interfere with our Services or try to access them using a method other than the interface and the instructions that we provide. You may use our Services only as permitted by law, including applicable export and re-export control laws and regulations. We may suspend or stop providing our Services to you if you do not comply with our terms or policies or if we are investigating suspected misconduct.
Using our Services does not give you ownership of any intellectual property rights in our Services or the content you access. You may not use content from our Services unless you obtain permission from its owner or are otherwise permitted by law. These terms do not grant you the right to use any branding or logos used in our Services. Don’t remove, obscure, or alter any legal notices displayed in or along with our Services.
Our Services display some content that is not Holdshort’s. This content is the sole responsibility of the entity that makes it available. We may review content to determine whether it is illegal or violates our policies, and we may remove or refuse to display content that we reasonably believe violates our policies or the law. But that does not necessarily mean that we review content, so please don’t assume that we do.
In connection with your use of the Services, we may send you service announcements, administrative messages, and other information. You may opt out of some of those communications.
Your Holdshort Account
You may need a Holdshort Account in order to access and use some of our Services. To protect your Holdshort Account, keep your password confidential. You are responsible for the activity that happens on or through your Holdshort Account. Try not to reuse your Holdshort Account password on third-party applications. If you learn of any unauthorized use of your password, please contact us immediately.
Holdshort’s privacy policies explain how we treat your personal data and protect your privacy when you use our Services. By using our Services, you agree that Holdshort can use such data in accordance with our privacy policies.
Your Content in our Services
Some of our Services allow you to upload, submit, store, send or receive content. You retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that you hold in that content. In short, what belongs to you stays yours.
When you upload, submit, store, send or receive content to or through our Services, you give Holdshort (and those we work with) 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. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating, promoting, and improving our Services, and to develop new ones.
Modifying and Terminating our Services
We are constantly changing and improving our Services. We may add or remove functionalities or features, and we may suspend or stop a Service altogether. You can stop using our Services at any time, although we’ll be sorry to see you go. Holdshort may also stop providing Services to you, or add or create new limits to our Services at any time.
We believe that you own your data and preserving your access to such data is important. If we discontinue a Service, where reasonably possible, we will give you reasonable advance notice and a chance to get information out of that Service.
New user accounts who have not previously created an organization and are unfamiliar with our Services are initially granted a 60-day trial period. This trial period is intended to allow you to assess our Services and determine whether you wish to initiate a paid subscription. You may end your trial early by activating a paid subscription. In doing so, this is an acknowledgement that you are satisfied with our Services.
Unless otherwise provided by law or by a particular Service offer, all purchases are final and non-refundable. There are no pro-rata refunds due for cancellation prior to the end of your subscription period, whether your organization is on an annual or monthly subscription plan. Unless you are a new organization that has just activated a subscription, as a courtesy, a notice of an impending charge for renewal is issued to the organization e-mail on file prior to the charge date. To avoid the charge, you must cancel or delete your organization prior to your renewal date. If you believe that Holdshort has charged you in error, you must contact us within 90 days of such charge. No refunds will be given for any charges more than 90 days old. We reserve the right to issue refunds or credits at our sole discretion.
Our Warranties and Disclaimers
As part of our Services, Holdshort provides several tools to facilitate regulatory compliance, airworthiness and fitness for flight. Many of these tools rely on proper user intervention to function. For example, airman certification requires proper entry of dates. Weight and Balance requires proper configuration as part of the setup process in addition to proper weight entry prior to each flight. It is the responsibility of the user to confirm all information entered and output from Holdshort prior to reliance. While we provide our Services using a commercially reasonable level of skill and care and we hope that you will enjoy using them, there are certain things that we don’t promise about our Services.
OTHER THAN AS EXPRESSLY SET OUT IN THESE TERMS OR ADDITIONAL TERMS, HOLDSHORT DOES NOT MAKE ANY SPECIFIC PROMISES ABOUT THE SERVICES. FOR EXAMPLE, WE DON’T MAKE ANY COMMITMENTS ABOUT THE CONTENT WITHIN THE SERVICES, THE SPECIFIC FUNCTIONS OF THE SERVICES, OR THEIR RELIABILITY, AVAILABILITY, OR ABILITY TO MEET YOUR NEEDS. WE PROVIDE THE SERVICES “AS IS”.
SOME JURISDICTIONS PROVIDE FOR CERTAIN WARRANTIES, LIKE THE IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WE EXCLUDE ALL WARRANTIES.
Liability for our Services
HOLDSHORT WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST PROFITS, REVENUES, OR DATA, FINANCIAL LOSSES OR INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES.
THE TOTAL LIABILITY OF HOLDSHORT, FOR ANY CLAIMS UNDER THESE TERMS, INCLUDING FOR ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES, IS LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT YOU PAID US TO USE THE SERVICES (OR, IF WE CHOOSE, TO SUPPLYING YOU THE SERVICES AGAIN).
Business uses of our Services
If you are using our Services on behalf of a business, that business accepts these terms. It will hold harmless and indemnify Holdshort and its affiliates, officers, agents, and employees from any claim, suit or action arising from or related to the use of the Services or violation of these terms, including any liability or expense arising from claims, losses, damages, suits, judgments, litigation costs and attorneys’ fees.
About these Terms
We may modify these terms or any additional terms that apply to a Service to, for example, reflect changes to the law or changes to our Services. 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 in the applicable Service. Changes will not apply retroactively and will become effective no sooner than fourteen days after they are posted. However, changes addressing new functions for a Service or changes made for legal reasons will be effective immediately. If you do not agree to the modified terms for a Service, you should discontinue your use of that Service.
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 Holdshort 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.
The laws of the State of New York, U.S.A., excluding New York’s conflict of laws rules, will apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to these terms or the Services. All claims arising out of or relating to these terms or the Services will be litigated exclusively in the federal or state courts of New York, USA, and you and Holdshort consent to personal jurisdiction in those courts.
