Terms and conditions
Effective date: February 2021
Welcome to SUN ZU Lab. Please read on to learn the rules and restrictions that govern your use of our website (https://SUNZULab.com/), products, services, technology, and applications (the “Services”). If you have any questions, comments, or concerns regarding these terms or the Services, please contact us at support@SUNZULab.com.
Will these Terms ever change?
We are constantly trying to improve our Services, so these Terms may need to change along with the Services. We reserve the right to change the Terms at any time, but if we do, we will bring it to your attention by placing a notice on the SUNZULab.com <https://SUNZULab.com/> website, by sending you an email, and/or by some other means.
If you don’t agree with the new Terms, you are free to reject them; unfortunately, that means you will no longer be able to use the Services. If you use the Services in any way after a change to the Terms is effective, that means you agree to all of the changes. Except for changes by us as described here, no other amendment or modification of these Terms will be effective unless in writing, and signed by you and SUN ZU Lab.
What about my privacy?
What are the basics of using the Services?
As part of using the Services, you may be required to sign up for an account and select a password and email or username (your “SUN ZU Lab User ID”). You promise to provide us with accurate, complete, and updated registration information about yourself. You may not select as your SUN ZU Lab User ID a name that you don’t have the right to use, or another person’s name with the intent to impersonate that person. Your right to access the Services is personal to you, and you may not transfer your account to anyone else without our prior written permission. You will not share your account or password with anyone, and you must protect the security of your account and your password. You are responsible for any activity associated with your account. You will only use the Services and Content (defined below) in a manner that complies with all laws that apply to you. If your use of the Services is prohibited by applicable laws, then you aren’t authorized to use the Services. We can’t and won’t be responsible for your using the Services in any way that breaks the law. You represent and warrant that you are of legal age to form a binding contract (or if not, you’ve received your parent’s or guardian’s permission to use the Services, and gotten your parent or guardian to agree to these Terms on your behalf). If you’re agreeing to these Terms on behalf of an organization or entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to agree to these Terms on that organization or entity’s behalf and bind them to these Terms (in which case, the references to “you” and “your” in these Terms refer to that organization or entity).
Your use of the Services is subject to the following additional restrictions:
You represent, warrant, and agree that you will not use the Services or interact with the Services in a manner that:

- Invades the privacy or discloses the private information of anyone;
- Attempts, in any manner, to obtain the password, account, or other security information from any other user;
- Violates the security of any computer network, or cracks any passwords or security encryption codes;
- Runs any form of auto-responder or “spam” on the Services, or any processes that run or are activated while you are not logged into the Services, or that otherwise interfere with the proper working of the Services (including by placing an unreasonable load on the Services’ infrastructure);
- Involves spamming, the sending of mass solicitations, or any other commercial activities and/or sales without our prior written consent;
- “Crawls,” “scrapes,” or “spiders” any page, data, or portion of or relating to the Services or Content (through use of manual or automated means);
- Circumvents or attempts to circumvent any features, limitations, or restrictions of the Services (including, without limitation, attempting to access, download, export, or otherwise use or exploit any Content using any automated means or tools);
- Copies or stores any significant portion of the Content;
- Contains a virus, Trojan horse, worm, time bomb, or other harmful computer code, file, or program;
- Collects email addresses or other contact information of users without their prior consent; or
- “Frames” or “mirrors” any portion of the Services or attempts to decompiles, reverse engineer, or otherwise attempt to obtain the source code, underlying ideas, or information of or relating to the Services.
A violation of any of the foregoing is grounds for account suspension or termination of your right to use or access the Services.
What are my rights with respect to the Services?
The materials displayed or published or available on or through the Services, including, but not limited to, text, graphics, data, articles, information, photos, images, illustrations, and so forth (all of the foregoing, the “Content”) are protected by copyright and/or other intellectual property laws. You promise to abide by all copyright notices, trademark rules, information, and restrictions contained in any Content you access through the Services in any way (including through the SUN ZU Lab website, mobile applications, API, downloads, etc.). You will not use, copy, reproduce, modify, translate, publish, broadcast, transmit, distribute, perform, upload, display, license, sell, or otherwise exploit for any purpose any Content not owned by you in a way that violates someone else’s (including SUN ZU Lab’s) rights. You may reference Content with proper attribution to SUN ZU Lab or the applicable owner, as described below; however, any other uses of Content require SUN ZU Lab’s prior written consent.

You won’t modify, publish, transmit, participate in the transfer or sale of, reproduce (except as expressly provided in this main), create derivative works based on, re-sell, sublicense, re-distribute, reverse-engineer, or otherwise exploit any aspect of the Services.
You may only use Content in a manner that is expressly permitted by these Terms. You may be required to submit an application and/or meet certain eligibility criteria in order to participate in a program, and there may be different terms and conditions which apply to the specific program that you choose. You must agree to all terms and conditions and, if applicable, pay all required fees which apply to your specific program. These Terms apply to all such programs unless specifically stated otherwise in the applicable program terms.
Unless otherwise notified to you in the Services, all Content made available to you through the Services, and any content and data created, published, or otherwise made available by SUN ZU Lab, shall be licensed to you for your use under the Creative Commons Attribution-Non Commercial 4.0 license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0/) (“CC BY-NC 4.0”).
Who is responsible for what I see and do on the Services?
Any information or content publicly posted or privately transmitted through the Services is the sole responsibility of the person from whom such content originated, and you access all such information and content at your own risk. We are not liable for any errors or omissions in that information or content, or for any damages or loss you might suffer in connection with it. We cannot control, and have no duty to take any action regarding how you may interpret and use the Content, or what actions you may take as a result of having been exposed to the Content. You hereby release us from all liability for you having acquired or not acquired Content through the Services.
SUN ZU Lab has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, accuracy, privacy policies, or practices of or opinions expressed in any Third-Party Services or by any third party that you interact with through the Services. In addition, SUN ZU Lab will not and cannot monitor, verify, censor, or edit the content of any Third-Party Services. By using the Services, you release and hold us harmless from any and all liability arising from your access to or use of any Third-Party Services.
Your interactions with organizations and/or individuals found on or through the Services, including payment and delivery of goods or services (if applicable), and any other terms, conditions, warranties, or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and such organizations or individuals. You should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any online or offline transaction with any of these third parties. You agree that SUN ZU Lab shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of any such dealings. If there is a dispute between participants on this site, or between users and any third party, you agree that SUN ZU Lab is under no obligation to become involved. In the event that you have a dispute with one or more other users, you release SUN ZU Lab, its officers, employees, agents, and successors from claims, demands, and damages of every kind or nature, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes or our Services.
Will SUN ZU Lab ever change the Services?
We’re always trying to improve the Services, so they may change over time. We may suspend or discontinue any part of the Services, or we may introduce new features, impose limits on certain features, or restrict access to parts or all of the Services. We’ll try to give you notice when we make a material change to the Services that would adversely affect you, but this isn’t always practical. Similarly, we reserve the right to remove any Content from the Services at any time, for any reason in our sole discretion, and without notice.
From time to time, SUN ZU Lab may require you to expunge some or all of the Content in your possession, and you will do so promptly upon request.
Does using SUN ZU Lab cost anything?
Some of our Services are currently free, but we reserve the right to charge for certain or all Services in the future. We will notify you before any Services you are then using begin carrying a fee, and if you wish to continue using such Service, you must pay all applicable fees for such Service.
What if I want to stop using SUN ZU Lab?
SUN ZU Lab is also free to terminate (or suspend access to) your use of the Services or your account, for any reason in our discretion, including your breach of these Terms. SUN ZU Lab has the sole right to decide whether you are in violation of any of the restrictions set forth in these Terms.
Account termination may result in destruction of any Content associated with your account, so keep that in mind before you decide to terminate your account. Provisions that, by their nature, should survive termination of these Terms shall survive termination. By way of example, all of the following will survive termination: any obligation you have to pay us or indemnify us, any limitations on our liability, any terms regarding ownership or intellectual property rights, and terms regarding disputes between us.
Additionally, upon termination of your account, SUN ZU Lab may require you to expunge some or all of the Content in your possession, and you will do so promptly.
What else do I need to know?
Warranty Disclaimer. Neither SUN ZU Lab nor its licensors or suppliers makes any representations or warranties concerning any content contained in or accessed through the Services, and we will not be responsible or liable for the accuracy, copyright compliance, legality, or decency of material contained in or accessed through the Services. We (and our licensors and suppliers) make no representations or warranties regarding suggestions or recommendations of services or products offered or purchased through the Services. Products and services purchased or offered (whether or not following such recommendations and suggestions) through the Services are provided “AS IS,” and without any warranty of any kind from SUN ZU Lab or others (unless, with respect to such others only, provided expressly and unambiguously in writing by a designated third party for a specific product). THE SERVICES AND CONTENT ARE PROVIDED BY SUN ZU LAB (AND ITS LICENSORS AND SUPPLIERS) ON AN “AS-IS” AND ON AN “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR THAT USE OF THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE.
Limitation of Liability. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LAW, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, TORT, CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE) SHALL SUN ZU LAB (OR ITS LICENSORS OR SUPPLIERS) BE LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY OTHER PERSON FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF GOODWILL, WORK STOPPAGE, ACCURACY OF RESULTS, OR COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, FOR ANY AMOUNT, IN THE AGGREGATE, IN EXCESS OF THE GREATER OF (I) $100 OR (II) THE AMOUNTS PAID BY YOU TO SUN ZU LAB IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THE APPLICABLE CLAIM.
Indemnity. You agree to indemnify and hold SUN ZU Lab, its affiliates, officers, agents, employees, and partners harmless from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages (actual and consequential), losses, and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) arising from or in any way related to any third-party claims relating to your use of the Services (including any actions taken by a third party using your account), and your violation of these Terms.
Assignment. You may not assign, delegate, or transfer these Terms, your rights or obligations hereunder, or your Services account, in any way (by operation of law or otherwise) without SUN ZU Lab’s prior written consent. We may transfer, assign, or delegate these Terms, and our rights and obligations without consent.
Relationship. You understand this is not an employment relationship. You hereby acknowledge and agree that you are not an employee, agent, partner, or joint venture of SUN ZU Lab, and you do not have any authority of any kind to bind SUN ZU Lab in any respect whatsoever. We make no guarantee regarding an offer of future employment based on your use of the Services.
Miscellaneous. You will be responsible for paying, withholding, filing, and reporting all taxes, duties, and other governmental assessments associated with your activity in connection with the Services, provided that the SUN ZU Lab may, in its sole discretion, do any of the foregoing on your behalf or for itself as it sees fit. The failure of either you or us to exercise, in any way, any right herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. If any provision of these Terms is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated, to the minimum extent necessary, so that these Terms shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. You and SUN ZU Lab agree that these Terms are the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding between you and SUN ZU Lab, and that it supersedes and cancels all previous written and oral agreements, communications, and other understandings relating to the subject matter of these Terms. You and SUN ZU Lab agree there are no third-party beneficiaries intended under these Terms.
