Terms & Conditions
Terms of Service of ShadeWave, LLC
This agreement governs your use of our services.
ShadeWave is a web-based, subscription service offering licenses to dentists and laboratory personnel. Subscribers can use the service to upload images and process them to determine tooth shade.
Subscribers are granted a nontransferable nonexclusive limited license to use ShadeWave for the licensed term. The license is granted solely to the person who subscribes. Each user must have his or her own license to use ShadeWave. Licenses may not be shared, and you will neither use anyone else’s login information nor provide your login information to anyone else. Further, you will not allow any third party to use your subscription to access our website.
Subscribers must ensure that their login details are kept confidential.Youmust promptly notify us in writingif you become aware of any unauthorized use of your login information.You are responsible for any activity on our website arising out of any failure to keep your login and password confidential.
Use of Website
You will not remove or otherwise alter any copyright notice, trademark, or other indicia of authorship, source or ownership contained in the materials on our website. You will use our website only in accordance with the terms of this agreement and in accordance with all applicable laws, regulations and ordinances. You will not upload any malicious code to our website or interfere in any way with the performance of our website.
Length of Service
ShadeWave is a subscription service allowing a subscriber in good standing to access his or her account for the subscription period. This is typically a twelve month (one year) license period, whether paid monthly or annually. Service begins after you set up a ShadeWave account and your credit card or bank account is charged.
Renewal of Service
You may be contacted by email and/or by message in ShadeWave as the time for renewal nears. If you renew your subscription, your credit card or bank account will be charged for the amount and length of time specified.You then will be sent a confirmation by email.
Your credit card or bank account will be charged annually or monthly depending on the type of service you select. You authorize us to charge such credit card or bank account for the initial subscription term and any renewal subscription term(s). You are responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information to us and notifying us of any changes to such information.
If any amount is not received by us when due, then, without limiting our rights or remedies, (a) the outstanding balance will accrue interest at the rate of 1.5% per month (18% per annum), or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, and (b) we maysuspend your account until such amounts are paid in full.
Canceling Service: Subscribers
New subscribers may cancel within 30 days of subscription and receive a full refund. Usually this will be through the user’s credit card. To cancel, you should enter your account profile and select “cancel.”
If your subscription is canceled or not renewed, you will not have access to your images unless/until you reinstate the account. ShadeWave will keep cancelled account information for 60 days past cancellation date. After that time, the account and all information may be permanently deleted. ShadeWave has an export mechanism if you wish to retain your images.
Canceling Service: ShadeWave
We may cancel a subscription if a subscriber has violated the terms of this agreement or has provided false information to us (e.g., a dental laboratory signs up as a dentist). In that event, there will be no refund.
ShadeWave may also cancel a subscription for any other reason. In that event, you will receive a prorated refund.
ShadeWave limits the number of images in a case to ten (10). Each user is allowed a gigabyte of stored data at the base rate. If you store additional data, you must pay for that storage at our then-current rate.
There is a functional difference in the use of ShadeWave by dentists and laboratory users. Only a dentist can create a case, that is, set up a patient for shade determination. Laboratory users can access a case if and when chosen by the dentist but cannot create a case.
Lost Images, No Access to Account
ShadeWave will not be responsible if images are lost or destroyed, the ShadeWave website is inaccessible, or you cannot access your account for any other reason. Further, ShadeWave is not liable if the processing of shades is not seated due to mismatches. Incorrect photography may result in crowns not matching.
You will promptly report to us any errors you discover in the operation of the website or our services.
