Todoroo Inc. ("Todoroo", or "we") provides services through our software applications for various devices and platforms ("Todoroo Applications") and the Todoroo.com domain, astrid.com domain, and any sub domains thereto (the "Sites"). Individually or collectively, Todoroo Applications and Sites may be referred to as the "Services".
Please read the following terms and conditions ("Terms of Service") carefully. These Terms of Service govern your access to and use of the Services and Todoroo Content (defined below) and set forth the legally binding terms for your use of the Services and Todoroo Content, whether or not you have registered as a Member.
Certain areas of the Services (and your access to or use of Todoroo Content) may have different terms and conditions posted or may require you to agree with and accept additional terms and conditions. If there is a conflict between these Terms of Service and terms and conditions posted for a specific area of the Services or Todoroo Content, the latter terms and conditions will take precedence with respect to your use of or access to that area of the Services or Todoroo Content.
Todoroo reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify, discontinue or terminate the Services, including any portion thereof on a global or individual basis, or to modify these Terms of Service, at any time and without prior notice. If we modify these Terms of Service, we will update the "Last Updated Date" above and post the modification on the Sites and perhaps elsewhere within the Services. By continuing to access or use the Services after we have posted a modification to these Terms of Service or have provided you with notice of a modification, you are indicating that you agree to be bound by the modified Terms of Service. If the modified Terms of Service are not acceptable to you, your only recourse is to cease using the Services.
