TERMS OF SERVICE
Thank you for downloading the Cannonball IO application and/or the Blend (MyBlendApp.com) application for your mobile device (the “Apps”). The Cannonball App and The Blend App are provided by Cannonball Corporation (“Cannonball”, “we” “us” or “our”). These terms of service (these “Terms of Service”) govern your (“you,” “your,” or a “user”) access to and use of the www.cannonball.io web site, the www.myblendapp.com and its subdomains (collectively, the “Websites”), the Apps, websites, software and all services provided by Cannonball via the Apps (collectively, the “Services”).
Cannonball enables you to bring together your online email from various Third Party Platforms (defined below) to help you effectively manage and organize your email more efficiently on your compatible mobile device. “Third Party Platforms” are email services or other content delivery services such as those provided by Google, Yahoo, and other similar platforms, including RSS services, compatible with the App as set forth on our Services from time to time, from which you authorize us to download your email for you to access through the App. The App downloads and stores your email from Third Party Platforms on your mobile device rather than in the cloud. As part of the Services, Cannonball organizes and provides efficient means to download and organize your email, attachments to those emails, content and information (anything you upload, submit, or transmit through the App, “your email”) that may have been previously dispersed over many different Third Party Platforms. Configuration of the App with Third Party Platforms is easy and, your email can automatically be downloaded to the App, upon your authorization, from each Third Party Platform. After your Cannonball or Blend account have been set up, you may use the Services to deliver new messages to your email automatically each time new messages are received by the applicable Third Party Platform.
For Gmail and Google Apps accounts we provide a service that indexes and accelerates delivery of your email to your device. That means that our service retrieves your incoming and outgoing email messages and securely pushes them to the app on your device. Similarly, the service retrieves the calendar data and address book contacts associated with your email account and securely pushes those to the app on your device. Those messages, calendar events, and contacts, along with their associated metadata, may be temporarily stored and indexed securely both in our servers and locally on the app on your device. If your emails have attachments and you request to open them in our app, the service retrieves them from the mail server, securely stores them temporarily on our servers, and delivers them to the app.
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF SERVICE CAREFULLY, AS THEY CONTAIN AN AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE, WHICH REQUIRES THAT YOU AND CANNONBALL ARBITRATE CERTAIN CLAIMS BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION INSTEAD OF GOING TO COURT AND LIMITS CLASS ACTION CLAIMS, UNLESS YOU OPT OUT OF THE AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE AS DESCRIBED IN THE ARBITRATION SECTION (SEE SECTION 19 “AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE”).
