Terms of Service
Thank you for using Accio Patent! When you download the Accio Patent app from the Apple App Store, you agree to the following terms. These terms are in addition to the standard End User License Agreement (EULA) you agree to when you download an app from the Apple App Store.
Accio Patent Premium requires you to maintain an individual paid subscription linked to your Apple ID through the Apple App Store. Attempting to circumvent the subscription requirement is prohibited.
PDF and Data Availability
Accio Patent Premium relies on a paid third-party data service from the European Patent Office (EPO) to retrieve original PDF copies of patents and published applications, and PDF copies will not be available for all patents at all times. PDF copies are not available for some types of patents and some jurisdictions, or may only be available for patents published after a certain date. Recently issued patents may not be available for retrieval for an initial period of time until the EPO has loaded the new patents into its database. Sometimes the EPO database is unavailable during periods of scheduled maintenance or unscheduled downtime. You are encouraged to use the free trial period to determine whether a paid subscription will give you adequate PDF and data availability.
Accio Patent relies on the EPO data service to search and retrieve patent data, and you may only retrieve patent data via the Accio Patent app. Attempting to bypass fair use controls in Accio Patent is prohibited, including imitating Accio Patent to the data service or engaging in automation or other abusive behavior in violation of either these terms or the terms of the EPO data service.
You acknowledge that Accio Patent (the app) is licensed AS-IS, and you agree to use the app AT YOUR OWN RISK. Accio Patent LLC (the company) shall in no event be liable, to the extent not prohibited by law, for personal injury or any incidental, special, indirect, or consequential damages whatsoever, including, without limitation, damages for loss of profits, loss of data, business interruption, or any other commercial damages or losses, arising out of or related to your use or inability to use the app, however, caused, regardless of the theory of liability (contract, tort, or otherwise), including, but not limited to, the data service or the app returning no data, incomplete data, or inaccurate data.
