Effective as of September 1, 2017

The following terms and conditions (“Agreement”) govern all access to and use of the bitebot.io website and bitebot.io web application (together, the “Bitebot Service”) including integrations with third party messenger services, all content and products available directly or indirectly at or through the Bitebot Service.

The terms “us” and “we” refer to the Bitebot Service owner and operator - Tymon Tobolski - and his company:

The terms “you” or “your” refer to the person accessing or using the Service, or the company or organization on whose behalf that person accesses the Service.

The Service

The Bitebot Service offers a way to track and report shared expenses, payments and shared bills between people over time in a variety of ways, including but not limited to using Bitebot web application and Slack messenger platform integration, and allows further aggregation and visualization.

Non-binding Debts

The Service allows users to report and track informal debts. These debts, as reported between users, are not legally binding. Furthermore, it is understood that a debt can be reported without all involved parties explicitly agreeing that such a debt is accurate or warranted. You affirm that the Service is not a financial institution, but is instead akin to a bulletin board whose accuracy and utility are determined on an individual basis by its users. You agree that the Service cannot guarantee the accuracy and validity of information entered by its users.

Relationship with Slack Technologies Inc.

Bitebot and Slack Technologies Inc, the provider of the Slack communication service, (“Slack”) are different entities. There is no relationship between Bitebot and Slack, other than Bitebot being a licensee and use of the Slack API for the purpose of providing the Bitebot Service. Slack is not responsible for the Bitebot Service and will not provide support for the Bitebot Service.

This Agreement does not apply to your use of the Slack services.
