The purpose of the AUP is to specify the type of actions and content that are contrary to our mission and philosophies as well as to specify guidelines for your use of the Service.  Any terms not defined in the AUP shall have the meaning ascribed to those terms in the Terms of Use for the Service.

2. CHANGED TERMS
(i) Benbria shall have the right at any time to modify the AUP. Any use of the Service by you after such modifications shall constitute your acceptance of such modifications.

3. CUSTOMER AND USER CONDUCT
(i) The AUP is intended to protect the Service, Benbria and any Customers and Users of the Service from allegations of improper, inappropriate, abusive or illegal conduct. When using the Service it is your responsibility to comply with the AUP and to ensure that you are adhering to all applicable laws, rules, regulations, and commonly accepted practices of the Internet community. The prohibited uses described below are intended as guidelines regarding improper and inappropriate conduct, and should not be interpreted as an exhaustive list.

(ii) Benbria does not provide any guarantees regarding, and assumes no liability for, the security and integrity of any data or information you store or transmit via the Service or the Internet, including any data or information stored or transmitted by any computer designated as "secure." Users of the Service shall report to Benbria any issue that could compromise the security or integrity of the Service or anyone using or providing capabilities for the Service as soon as reasonably practicable.

(iii) When a Customer sends any e-mail, text message, instant message or social media message containing informational or commercial content to a User, the Customer must comply with Canada’s anti-spam legislation.  Such messages will be considered unsolicited unless they are sent to a User who expressly requested receipt of such message via an "opt-in" process. It is Customer’s responsibility to prove using written evidence that each User including on any message list has expressly requested inclusion on such e-mail, text message, instant message or social media message list. In the absence of positive, verifiable proof to the contrary, Benbria will consider any complaint by a User about an e-mail, text, instant message or social media message sent by a Customer to such User to be de-facto proof that the User did not consent to the message about which the complaint was made.

4. INTENDED USES OF THE SOFTWARE
(i) Loop is intended to encourage Users to provide input relating to Users’ experience with a product or service provided by a Customer. Loop is intended to facilitate delivery of User input about that User’s experience directly to employees of a Customer who is providing a product or service and to facilitate further exchanges between the User and the Customer that is providing the product or service. The collection of messages exchanged between a User and a Customer that is providing a product or service is called a “Loop”.
