5. Subscriptions and Payment

Subscriptions. We offer our premium services on a subscription basis. Different tiers of subscription may have different features and prices. We also offer different prices depending on whether you decide to purchase a monthly, quarterly or annual subscription (although we may not offer all subscriptions models at any given time).

Contract formation. When placing an order for our services through the Site, you are offering to enter into a legally binding contract with us under which we agree to provide those Services and you agree to use and pay for them, in each case in accordance with these Terms. We may accept or reject your order at our discretion. If we accept your order, and communicate acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail or other notice, then the contract between you and us for the provision of the Services will be formed.

Our order process is conducted by our online reseller, Market Limited (Paddle). Paddle acts as our Merchant of Record for all our orders. This means that we do not collect or process your credit or debit card details when you make payments through the Sites.

Rights in our content. The intellectual property rights in all of the content on and in our Site belong either to us or to whomever licensed that content to us. You may not copy or make any use of that content without having first obtained our permission or permission from whomever owns the relevant intellectual property rights. Uses which are expressly permitted by law (for instance, if you print off a copy of some of our user guides your personal reference) are however allowed. If you would like to make any use of any of our content then please contact us and we can discuss this with you.

Rights in Your Content. Our Site lets users submit content as well – i.e. SQL snippets, challenges or “submissions”. When you submit content you are not granting any licence to other users, but only granting a licence to us as necessary to host it on the Site.

We don’t claim any rights of ownership over the intellectual property rights in any content you submit to the Site, including challenges and submissions (Your Content). However, you grant us a licence to use Your Content. This licence is non-exclusive, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free and freely capable of sub-licence or transfer, and will entitle us to use, copy, modify, distribute, publish and display Your Content in any media (printed or electronic) for the purposes of delivering our services and our Site in accordance with our Terms. If your account is closed, then we may cease to publish Your Content or not at our election. We may also retain a copy for record-keeping purposes. You acknowledge that Your Content will be visible to other users (unless you are a paid account holder and have applied privacy settings to Your Content).

Content standards. We ask (and you agree) that Your Content will meet certain standards. In particular, you will ensure that:

Protection of Your Content. Any licences granted by you to other users are your responsibility. We do not accept any responsibility for enforcing those licences or for policing any infringements by our users of other users’ content. You acknowledge and accept that it is your responsibility to protect and enforce Your Content as you see fit. Because we are not a party to any licence granted by you to another user, any remedies that either you or the user might have under that licence are against each other, not against us.

Removal of Your Content. You are free to remove Your Content from the Site. Likewise if you close your account then Your Content will be removed.

Other Users’ Content. We are not able to monitor or control the content submitted to our Site. Any use of or reliance on any content posted on the Site is at your own risk. We do not warrant the completeness, truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of any content on the Site. You recognise that by using our Site, you may be exposed to other users’ content that may infringe our content standards. Although we may act to remove content where possible (and where we have been notified of any problem), we are not liable for it or for any use of it.

Collaboration is your responsibility. If you choose to collaborate with other users, then it is your responsibility to ensure that you understand the risks and responsibilities in doing so. If you and another user end up in dispute in relation to Your Content or his or her content, then it will be your responsibility to resolve that dispute, and we will not have any responsibility or liability to you in relation to that dispute or in relation to any misuse by collaborators of each other’s content. In short, we are not able to “police” our users.

7. Termination

Termination by you. You may terminate any contract between you and us on the Terms and close your account by written notice to us at any time. . You should note that termination of your contract with us will not affect any licence that you have granted in relation to Your Content (as defined below), and will also not entitle you to any refund of any prepaid fees to subscribe to our Services.

We also reserve the right to terminate any contract between you and us, and/or suspend or terminate your account, by written notice to you at any time. We will try to give you reasonable notice, and to exercise this right only in circumstances where termination is appropriate (for instance because we are unable to continue to provide our Site or because you have violated the Terms). However, nothing in our relationship with you guarantees your continued use of our Site.

Effect of Termination. Termination of the contract between you and us will not affect any rights or remedies of the parties in existence at the time of termination. For instance, if at the time of termination one of us owes the other any sums, then they will still be owed. Any of the Terms which expressly or impliedly survive termination will continue in force. Any termination of your account may result in the deletion of Your Content. We do not guarantee that Your Content will be recoverable after termination or account closure.

8. Our Liability to You

Our role here at DB Recruiter is to provide a platform for testing a users SQL skills. Because our role is limited, and we don’t control the use of our platform or the value of snippets, we limit and exclude our liability to an appropriate degree.

9. Indemnity

If we are subject to any third-party claim as a result of your breach of any of your obligations under the Terms, or as a result of your negligence, misrepresentation or other wrongful act, then you will indemnify us against that claim.
