This EULA is subject to change by Squelch at any time, effective upon posting on the Websites. By accessing and/or using the Service you accept this EULA and agree to its terms, conditions and notices.

Limited license. Squelch grants you, subject to your compliance with this Agreement, a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to download and install a copy of the App. You may download the App on any supported device to which you have exclusive control. We reserve all rights in and to the App which are not expressly granted to you under these EULA. You are prohibited from running any version of the App on a “jailbroken” device.

Updates. You acknowledge and agree that new or updated versions of the App may include new or updated EULA. Because new or updated versions of the App may include enhanced security or fixes to previous security-related problems, the failure to install the new version of the App may expose you to security risks, including without limitation a breach of your personal information.

Minimum age. You must be at least eighteen years of age to download and use the App. By using the Service, you represent and warrant that you have the right, authority and legal capacity to enter into this Agreement and to abide by all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement. The Service is also not available to any users who have been previously removed or suspended from the Service by us.

Security. The Squelch App is stored directly on the device on which you install Squelch App. You acknowledge that access to your device allows access to the Squelch App. You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for protecting the security of your device and access to the App, including but not limited to physical access and any device security features such as password, biometric, etc.

Commercial Use of Service. If you are using or accessing the Service on behalf of a company, entity, or organization (collectively, a “Subscribing Entity”), you represent and warrant that:

  1. You are an authorized representative of the Subscribing Entity, and that you have the authority to bind the Subscribing Entity to this EULA;
  2. You have read and understand this EULA; and
  3. You agree to this EULA on behalf of the Subscribing Entity.

You must not, and must not permit any third party to, copy or adapt the object code of the App, or reverse engineer, reverse assemble, decompile, modify or attempt to discover any source or object code of any part of the App, or circumvent or attempt to circumvent or copy any copy protection mechanism on the App.

You must not sell or transfer, or offer to sell or transfer, access to the App without the prior written approval of Squelch.

You must not violate, circumvent or attempt to violate or circumvent any data security measures employed by Squelch; access or attempt to access data or materials which are not intended for your use;; attempt to scan or test the vulnerability of Squelch’s servers, system or network or attempt to breach Squelch data security ; attempt to interfere with the Services by any means including, without limitation, hacking Squelch’s servers or systems, submitting a virus, overloading, mail-bombing or crashing. Without limitation to any other rights or remedies of Squelch under these EULA, Squelch reserves the right to investigate any situation that appears to involve any of the above, and may report such matters to, and cooperate with, appropriate law enforcement authorities in prosecuting any users who have participated in any such violations.

Voluntary Bids. Squelch provides you with an option to specify a dollar amount between $1 - $400 that you agree to be charged and pay in the event you do not make it through your self-selected blackout period without disabling Squelch to access the apps you selected to block. (“Bid”). Squelch offers a free alternative that does not require any bid or obligationpromise to pay. It is up to you whether you want to bid and in doing so you are legally agreeing to have your payment method charged and make a payment. You alone bear the risk of any loss for any payments made due to failure to meet your self-imposed commitments or goals. You acknowledge and agree that Squelch is not liable to you for any loss, including monies paid or charged to any payment method you provide, as the result of your acts or omissions, including without limitation failure to communicate, conversion, physical injury, mental distress, breach of contract, negligence, and intellectual property violations.

Charges to your payment method. If you elect to make a “Bid” through the App or Service, you agree that such payment shall be made through our third-party vendor, Google Pay. Squelch does not directly process any payments you agree to make. You should read the following links to Google Pay EULA and Privacy Policy, so you understand your obligations and rights under their payment system. You agree to pay all charges at the amounts you voluntarily elect in your “Bid” and you authorize Google Pay on behalf of Squelch to charge your chosen payment provider (your “Payment Method”) for the Bid. Additionally, the terms of your payment will be based on your Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and the financial institution, credit card issuer or other provider of your chosen payment method.

Modifications to App and Service. Squelch reserves the right at any time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the App or Service (or any part thereof) with or without notice. You agree that Squelch shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Service.

Blocking of IP Addresses. In order to protect the integrity of the Services, Squelch reserves the right at any time in its sole discretion to block Users from certain IP addresses from accessing the Website, App or Service.
