BoodleBox by boodleAI Terms of Service
1.1 Welcome to BoodleBox!
Thank you for using the BoodleBox platform and the products, services, tools, data, features, and website that we make available to you as part of the platform (collectively, “BoodleBox” or the “Service”).
1.2 Our Service
BoodleBox is an AI-driven platform developed by boodleAI. It enables users to create an AI assistant by selecting and combining large language models, personalities, external datasets, and internal datasets. The platform also allows users to purchase or subscribe to these different elements to enhance their AI assistants. Furthermore, BoodleBox provides search functionalities, generation of responses to user prompts, multi-chat capabilities, and a unique feature of creating a “boodle” from a prompt and response, among other capabilities.
1.3 Acceptance of Terms
By accessing or using the Service, you (“User”, “You”, “Your”) agree to be bound by these Terms of Service (“Terms”) set forth by boodle, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“boodleAI”, “Company”, “We”, “Us”, “Our”). These Terms apply to all visitors, users, and others who access or use our Service. If you do not agree with any part of these Terms, you should refrain from using our Service.
1.4 Contact Information
If you have any questions about these Terms, please contact us at [email protected].
2. Service Requirements and Limitations
2.1 Service Requirements
To use BoodleBox, you will need a compatible device with internet access. You are responsible for acquiring and updating the device, software, operating system, carrier, and network access necessary to properly access and use our Service. We do not guarantee that our Service will function on any particular device, software, or network.
2.2 Service Limitations
BoodleBox Service is subject to limitations including, but not limited to, system capacity and constraints set by our third-party providers. While we aim to provide the best service possible, we do not guarantee that the Service will be uninterrupted, timely, or error-free. The Service might not be available due to reasons outside our reasonable control, such as “force majeure” (for example, labor actions, infrastructural breakdowns or blackouts).
The output generated by BoodleBox is dependent on various factors including the quality and relevance of the data inputs and the limitations of generative “artificial intelligence” and probabilistic machine learning.
Outputs generated by BoodleBox may also be dependent on third-party large language models, personalities (initializations), and external datasets. These third-party components have varying limitations that may result in varying degrees of accuracy in outputs generated using our Service.
Given the probabilistic nature of machine learning, use of our Service may in some situations result in incorrect output that does not accurately reflect real people, places, or facts. You should not assume the accuracy of any output and should evaluate the accuracy of any output as appropriate for your use case, including by using human review of the output.
3. User Account
3.1 Account Registration
To access and use BoodleBox, you may be required to create an account. You agree to provide accurate, current, and complete information during the registration process and to update such information to keep it accurate, current, and complete.
3.2 Age Restrictions
You must be at least 18 years old to use the Service.
3.3 User Responsibilities
As a user, you are responsible for all activities that occur under your account. You agree not to disclose your account username or password (“Login Credentials”) to others and you should safeguard it to prevent unauthorized access to and/or use of your Login Credentials and/or Account (“Unauthorized Access”). If you believe your account has been compromised, you must immediately notify us. You are solely responsible for managing and maintaining the security of your Login Credentials and any other forms of authentication, and you understand and acknowledge that we are not responsible (and you will not hold us responsible) for any Unauthorized Access.
3.4 Corporate use
If you use our Service on behalf of a company or organization, you represent that you have authority to act on behalf of that entity, and that such entity accepts this agreement (“Agreement”). You agree not to disclose your account password available to others outside your organization, and you are responsible for all activities that occur using your credentials.
3.5 Data Security
We have implemented and will maintain a written information security program, in compliance with all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations (including any similar international laws). The program contains reasonable and appropriate security measures designed to safeguard the personal information that we receive, store, maintain, process, transmit or otherwise access (collectively, “uses”) in connection with the provision of Services. In this regard, we will establish and maintain policies, procedures, and technical, physical, and administrative safeguards, designed to (i) ensure the security and confidentiality of all personal information and any other confidential information that we use, (ii) protect against any reasonably foreseeable threats or hazards to the security or integrity of your personal information or other confidential information, (iii) protect against unauthorized access to or use of personal information or other confidential information, (iv) maintain reasonable procedures to detect and respond to any internal or external security breaches, and (v) ensure appropriate disposal of personal information or other confidential information. We will monitor, test, and review our information security program and revise it, as necessary and in our sole discretion, to ensure it appropriately addresses any applicable legal and regulatory requirements.
We will: (i) promptly notify you of any confirmed Unauthorized Access to your personal information or other confidential information (“Breach of Security”); (ii) promptly furnish you with appropriate details of such Breach of Security; (iii) use reasonable precautions to prevent a recurrence of a Breach of Security; and (iv) take reasonable and appropriate action to mitigate any potential harm related to a Breach of Security, including any reasonable steps that are practicable for us to implement.
Nothing in the immediately preceding sentence shall obligate us to provide you with information regarding any of our other customers or clients that are affected by a Breach of Security, nor shall the immediately preceding sentence limit our ability to take any actions that we believe are appropriate to remediate any Breach of Security unless such actions would prejudice or otherwise limit your ability to bring your own claims or actions against third parties related to the Breach of Security. If we discover or become aware of a suspected data or security breach that may involve an improper access, use, disclosure, or alteration of your personal information or other confidential information, we shall, except to the extent prohibited by Applicable Law or directed otherwise by a governmental authority not to do so, promptly notify you that we are investigating a potential breach and keep you informed as reasonably practicable of material developments relating to the investigation until we either confirm that such a breach has occurred (in which case the first sentence of this paragraph will apply) or confirm that no data or security breach involving your personal information or other confidential information has occurred. For these purposes, “personal information” shall mean (i) an individual’s name (first initial and last name or first name and last name), address or telephone number plus (a) social security number, (b) driver’s license number, (c) state identification card number, (d) debit or credit card number, (e) financial account number, (f) passport number, or (g) personal identification number or password that would permit access to a person’s account or (ii) any combination of the foregoing that would allow a person to log onto or access an individual’s account. This provision will survive termination or expiration of the Agreement for so long as we continue to possess or have access to personal information related to a customer. Notwithstanding the foregoing, “personal information” shall not include information that is lawfully obtained from publicly available information, or from federal, state, or local government records lawfully made available to the general public.

For clarity, this license does not grant any rights or permissions for a user to make use of your Output independent of the Service.

You may not use the names, logos, or trademarks of boodleAI or any of our affiliates or Providers without our or their prior written consent.
6.6 Continuation of Licenses
The licenses granted by you continue perpetually, even for content that you later remove or delete from the Service.
7. Paid Services
BoodleBox will enable access to certain premium features or content in exchange for one-time or recurring fees (each a “Paid Service”).
7.1 Available Models, Initializations, Datasets
Paid Services include a variety of large language models (“LLMs”), personalities (initializations), external datasets and other content provided by third parties (“Providers”) for purchase or subscription. The availability of these third-party products (“Third-Party Products”) and other components may vary and is subject to change without notice.
7.2 Third-Party Licenses and Terms of Service
Any Third-Party Product that you acquire is governed by the Terms of Service or End User License Agreement (“EULA”) of the Provider. The Provider of any Third-Party Product is solely responsible for its content, warranties, and claims that you may have related to the Third-Party Product, subject to local law. You acknowledge and agree that boodleAI is a third-party beneficiary of the Terms of Service or EULA applicable to each Third-Party Product and may, therefore, enforce such agreement.
Paid Subscriptions may automatically renew until cancelled. You will be notified if the price of a Paid Subscription increases and, if required, your consent will be required to continue. If we cannot charge your payment method for any reason (such as expiration or insufficient funds), and you have not cancelled the Paid Subscription, you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts, and we will attempt to charge the payment method as you may update your payment method information. This may result in a change to the start of your next Paid Subscription period and may change the date on which you are billed for each period. We reserve the right to cancel your Paid Subscription if we are unable to successfully charge your payment method to renew your subscription. Certain Paid Subscriptions may offer a free trial prior to charging your payment method. If you decide to unsubscribe from a Paid Subscription before we start charging your payment method, cancel the subscription at least 24 hours before the free trial ends.
7.4 Payment Terms
When you purchase or subscribe to any component within BoodleBox, you agree to the prices, payment terms, taxes, and fees applicable to that transaction. Prices may vary based on the terms, amounts, and timing of your purchase or subscription. All fees are non-refundable except as required by law.
(a) Fees and Billing
You will pay all fees charged to your account (“Fees”) according to the prices and terms on the applicable pricing page, or as otherwise agreed between us in writing. We have the right to correct pricing errors or mistakes even if we have already issued an invoice or received payment. You will provide complete and accurate billing information, including a valid and authorized payment method. We will charge your payment method on an agreed-upon periodic basis but may reasonably change the date on which the charge is posted. You authorize boodleAI and its affiliates, and our third-party payment processor(s), to charge your payment method for the Fees. If your payment cannot be completed, we will provide you with written notice and may suspend access to the Service until payment is received. Fees are payable in U.S. dollars and are due upon invoice issuance. Payments are nonrefundable except as provided in this Agreement.
Unless otherwise stated, Fees do not include federal, state, local, and foreign taxes, duties, and other similar assessments (“Taxes”). You are responsible for all Taxes associated with your purchase, excluding Taxes based on our net income, and we may invoice you for such Taxes. You agree to timely pay such Taxes and provide us with documentation showing the payment, or additional evidence that we may reasonably require. boodleAI uses the name and address in your account registration as the place of supply for tax purposes, so you must keep this information accurate and up to date.
(c) Price Changes
We may change our prices by posting notice to your account and/or to our website. Price increases will be effective 14 days after they are posted, except for increases made for legal reasons, which will be effective immediately. Price changes for subscription services to which you have subscribed will take effect upon the effective date of any renewal of such subscription. Any price changes will apply to the Fees charged to your account immediately after the effective date of the changes.
(d) Disputes and Late Payments
If you want to dispute any Fees or Taxes, please contact [email protected] within thirty (30) days of the date of the disputed invoice. Undisputed amounts past due may be subject to a finance charge of 1.5% of the unpaid balance per month. If any amount of your Fees is past due, we may suspend your access to the Service after we provide you written notice of late payment.
7.5 Cancellations and Refunds
Unless otherwise specified in these terms or in a form both parties agree to, all purchases and subscriptions are final and non-refundable. If you believe that boodleAI has charged you in error, you must contact us within thirty (30) days of such charge. We reserve the right to refuse a refund request if it does not comply with these Terms.
8.1 Voluntary Termination
You may stop using our Service at any time and for any reason by closing your account or discontinuing your use of our Service.
8.2 Termination by boodleAI
We reserve the right to suspend or terminate your account or cease providing you with all or part of the Service at any time for any or no reason, including, but not limited to, if we reasonably believe: (i) you have violated these Terms, (ii) you create risk or possible legal exposure for us, including risk to the security, integrity or availability of any part of the Service; (iii) your account should be removed due to unlawful conduct, (iv) your account should be removed due to prolonged inactivity; or (v) our provision of the Service to you is no longer commercially viable. We will make reasonable efforts to notify you by the email address associated with your account or the next time you attempt to access your account, depending on the circumstances.
8.3 Effect of Termination
Upon termination of your access to the Service, you will immediately lose access to any data, information, and content in the Service associated with your account, including but not limited to, your boodles and boxes. We recommend that you regularly back up your content and data that you store on the Service. boodleAI is not responsible for the loss of such data, information, or content due to termination of the Service.
For the avoidance of doubt, these Terms survive the deactivation or termination of your account.
8.4 Right to Appeal Termination
If you believe your account was terminated in error, you can file an appeal by submitting a request to [email protected] or by mailing a request to Legal Notices at the address indicated herein. All appeals of termination must be made within 30 days of such termination.
