Before you read and agree to the digi.me End User Terms below, please read OUR MISSION, which provides you with the background to the digi.me End User Terms.
As human beings, we are all the sum of our experiences, but online we are defined by the personal data we scatter as we go about our lives. We believe that data belongs to you, that it is powerful and that it is valuable.
Our mission is to help you take back control of your data, by enabling you to get your personal data from all over the web, see it in ways you couldn’t before and then share it with brands using a clear consent structure.
Our app lets you bring all your data back together under your control in a secure personal library of your choice and do more with it, including choosing to share it with brands on a consent basis.
We want to be very clear: we never see, touch or hold user data, ever.

6.2 You may install and use the digi.me App on a reasonable number of User Devices to make use of the digi.me End User Services and as described in the User Guide. You agree that the digi.me App is designed for consumer end-user use and is not designed for commercial use.

If you wish to use a full commercial version of the digi.me App, please contact digi.me to discuss the options available to you.
6.3 You agree that digi.me or third parties own all legal right, title and interest in and to the digi.me App, including any Intellectual Property Rights that subsist in the digi.me App. digi.me reserves all rights not expressly granted to you.
6.4 You may not use the digi.me App for any purpose not expressly permitted by the digi.me App Licence.

You may not use the digi.me App for any unlawful way, including the following:
(a) storing or sharing any unlawful, harassing, libellous, abusive, threatening, harmful, vulgar, obscene, or otherwise objectionable material; or
(b) storing or sharing electronic copies of materials protected by copyright without the permission of the owner.
8.1 The digi.me App allows you to choose which Data Sources your place in your User Storage as explained in the User Guide.
8.2 If you do not have a current version of the digi.me App, the digi.me App may no longer synchronise your Data Sources with your User Storage.
8.3 Subject to sections 11 and 27, you can continue to use previous versions of the digi.me App to access User Data in User Storage which has been synchronised before your version became outdated. You agree that over time, when a version of the digi.me App becomes substantially outdated, access to User Data may become affected or no longer function. Digi.me therefore encourages you to ensure you are always using the most up to date version of the digi.me App.
9.1 You acknowledge that the digi.me App may change from time to time.
9.2 The digi.me App Licence includes all updates to the digi.me App during a Licence Period.
9.3 Digi.me will use commercially reasonable efforts to update you of any material changes to the digi.me App by posting an update on the digi.me Site.
9.4 If digi.me updates the digi.me App, you agree to update your installed digi.me Apps promptly (and agree that if you do not, your installed version of the digi.me App may stop functioning properly).

10.1 Digi.me will use reasonable endeavours to provide technical or other support for the digi.me App and to provide reasonable availability of digi.me’s services. Any support which digi.me provides will be limited to the then current release of the digi.me App and the release before that as determined by digi.me.
10.2 If digi.me chooses to provide any technical or other support to you, you agree that with respect to any technical or other information (but not User Data) that you provide to digi.me, digi.me has an unrestricted right to use such information for its business purposes, including for support and development.

11.2 If you want to terminate the digi.me App Licence, you can do so by deleting the digi.me App and stopping using your User Credentials.
12.1 Digi.me may make changes to the terms of the digi.me App Licence and notify you by placing a notice on the digi.me Site.
12.2 If you do not agree to changes to the digi.me App Licence terms, you must stop using the digi.me App. If you continue to use the digi.me App after the date the change comes into effect, you will be deemed to have accepted the new version of the digi.me App Licence.
You acknowledge that the digi.me App allows Brand Apps to collect personal data directly from you, on the basis of the terms in a Consent Contract. If you do not want to share your personal data with Brands, you should not agree to Consent Requests.
14.1 Once you have installed the digi.me App, you can receive Consent Requests from Brands, as set out in the User Guide.
14.2 In order to offer you Consent Requests, digi.me requires Brands to sign up to the digi.me Business Terms, available at Partner terms. The digi.me Business Terms contain terms and conditions for your benefit requiring the Brand to comply with applicable laws, including those relating to the protection of your personal data.
15.1 You accept a Consent Request only when you click “[I CONSENT]”. Please take the time to read the Consent Request before you click!
15.2 The display to you of a Consent Request constitutes an offer from the Brand to you to access your User Data on the basis outlined in the Consent Request.
15.3 Your obligation to provide Released Data only arises upon acceptance by you of the Consent Request to form a Consent Contract.
15.4 There is no acceptance of the Consent Request until you indicate your acceptance by clicking “I CONSENT”. Your acceptance is sent to digi.me who will issue you with a Consent Receipt. At the point digi.me transmits the Consent Receipt to you, a Consent Contract shall come into existence between you and the Brand. Unless terminated early under the digi.me End User Terms, each Consent Contract shall automatically end upon completion of delivery of all Released Data and the User Benefit associated with it. You can see a list of all your ongoing and historical Consent Contracts (including their Consent Receipts) at any time by using the Dashboard.
16.1 Each time you enter a Consent Contract, the digi.me App will send a request to your User Storage to release the Released Data directly to the Brand App.
16.2 The digi.me App is a piece of software that is installed locally on your User Device which allows you to disclose Released Data directly from your chosen User Storage to the Brand App. Therefore, you acknowledge that:
(a) the digi.me App allows you alone, not digi.me, to control your own User Data;
(b) Digi.me does not see, touch or hold your User Data and is not a data controller of any of your User Data; and
(c) Digi.me undertakes no processing of, and is not a data processor of, any of your User Data.
17.1 If the Consent Contract contains a User Benefit, digi.me confirms that the Brand is required to deliver the User Benefit to you under the digi.me Business Terms as soon as practicable following release of the Released Data.
17.2 You acknowledge and agree that digi.me is not part of the Consent Contract between you and the Brand and is not responsible to you if the Brand does not deliver a User Benefit.
18.1 You can stop an Ongoing Consent Contract at any time by switching it off using the Dashboard.
18.2 If you switch an Ongoing Consent Contact off, you agree that this may affect any corresponding User Benefit you are receiving. Digi.me is not responsible for any knock-on effects should you choose to end an Ongoing Contract early.
18.3 If a Brand ends its Consent Contracts, any Ongoing Consent Contracts with that Brand will automatically come to an end. You can see which Consent Contracts have ended on your Dashboard. Just like when you end an Ongoing Consent Contract, if a Brand ends an Ongoing Consent Contract, there may be knock-on effects. Again, digi.me is not responsible for these and you should contact the Brand directly if you believe the Brand has not provided the User Benefit.
19.1 For each Consent Contract where the Forget Me Function is switched on, the Forget Me Function allows you to send a Forget Me Instruction. When you send a Forget Me Instruction this is sent from the digi.me App directly to the Brand. Even if you issue a Forget Me Instruction, there may be some data which the Brand needs to keep, for example, because the law requires it to.
20.1 When you register for digi.me End User Services you will be asked to create your User Credentials. You are responsible for all use of digi.me End User Services associated with your User Credentials.
20.2 You agree to keep your User Credentials secret. If you believe or suspect that your User Credentials have been compromised, please notify digi.me and update your User Credentials immediately.
22.1 So that digi.me can innovate and improve the digi.me End User Services, digi.me may collect certain usage statistics relating to your use of the digi.me App including but not limited to version numbers of software, the features within the digi.me app being used and information on which services are being synced. This information is completely anonymised so digi.me has no idea who you are. Nor through this process does digi.me have any access to your User Data.
22.2 If you would like anonymous information in relation to your use of the digi.me End User Services not to be collected, please follow the instructions in the User Guide to opt out.
23.1 Each of digi.me and you warrant that we each have the necessary rights, licences and permits to perform our respective obligations under the digi.me End User Terms.
23.2 If at any time you no longer have the necessary rights, licences and permits to use the digi.me End User Services in compliance with the digi.me End User Terms, you must stop using the digi.me End User Services
24.1 Digi.me provides the digi.me End User Services with a reasonable level of skill and care. However, there are certain things that digi.me cannot promise, as described below.

Digi.me provides the digi.me App and digi.me End User Services “as is”.
24.4 Some countries provide for certain warranties, such as the implied warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement. To the extent permitted by law, digi.me excludes all warranties.

25.3 Digi.me will be entitled, at its expense, to participate in the defence and settlement of the claim or action with lawyers of its own choosing. You may not settle any claims that limit digi.me’s rights without digi.me’s prior written consent (which will not be unreasonably withheld).
25.4 This section does not apply to non-business consumer users of the digi.me End User Services.
26.1 Each of digi.me and you limits their liability to each other under the digi.me End User Terms as set out below.

26.4 Subject to paragraphs 26.2 and 26.3, digi.me’s total liability to you whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty or otherwise, arising in connection with the digi.me End User Services shall be limited to re-providing you with the applicable digi.me End User Services.
26.5 In all cases, digi.me will not be responsible for any loss or damage that is not reasonably foreseeable.
27.1. Digi.me may terminate the digi.me App Licence and your use of any digi.me End User Services in the circumstances outlined below.
27.2 Digi.me may at any time terminate the digi.me App Licence and your use of any digi.me End User Services if:
(a) you have breached any important provision of these digi.me End User Terms;
(b) Digi.me is required to do so by law or chooses to do so following legal advice;
(c) any partner with whom digi.me offered certain components of the digi.me App or any part of the digi.me End User Services has ended its relationship with digi.me or stopped offering certain components of the digi.me App or part of the digi.me End User Services;

27.3 When the digi.me terminates under paragraph 27.2 you agree to irretrievably delete the digi.me App and all components from your computers and devices.
27.4 Termination or expiry (howsoever occurring) does not affect any accrued rights or liabilities, or the coming into force or the continuance in force of any provision which is expressly or by implication intended to come into or continue in force on or after termination or expiry.
Digi.me is not responsible for anything beyond its reasonable control.
29.1 Digi.me may make changes to the digi.me End User Terms and notify you by placing a notice on the digi.me Site. However, no changes will ever be made to the digi.me End User Terms that allow digi.me to see, touch or hold user data
29.2 If you do not agree to changes to the digi.me End User Terms, you can choose to stop using the digi.me End User Services. If you continue to use the digi.me App or any other digi.me End User Services after the date the revised digi.me End User Terms come into effect, you will be deemed to have accepted those revised digi.me End User Terms.
You may not sell, assign or transfer any of your rights or obligations under the digi.me End User Terms. Digi.me is permitted to assign or transfer its rights and obligations under the digi.me End User Terms upon notice to you by placing a notice on the digi.me Site.
The digi.me End User Terms constitute the whole legal agreement between you and digi.me, to the exclusion of any previous agreements, and govern your use of the digi.me End User Services.
You agree that if either you or digi.me does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy which is contained in the digi.me End User Terms (or which is available under any applicable law), this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of those rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available.
If any court of law, having the jurisdiction to decide on this matter, rules that any provision of the digi.me End User Terms is invalid, then that provision will be removed from the digi.me End User Terms without affecting the rest of the digi.me End User Terms. The remaining provisions of the digi.me End User Terms will continue to be valid and enforceable.
You acknowledge and agree that each member of the group of companies of which digi.me is a member shall be third party beneficiaries to the digi.me End User Terms and that such other companies shall be entitled to directly enforce, and rely upon, any provision of the digi.me End User Terms that confers a benefit on (or rights in favour of) them. Other than this, no other person shall be a third party beneficiary to the digi.me End User Terms.
The digi.me End User Terms and any non-contractual obligations arising in connection with them are governed by and construed in accordance with English law, and the English courts shall have exclusive jurisdiction to determine any dispute arising in connection with the digi.me End User Terms, including disputes relating to any non-contractual obligations.
