  • Your access to and use of the Services and the Device(s) is governed by these terms and conditions (the “Terms”). By setting up a user account with Glue and by accepting the Terms, the user of the Services whether as an owner of one or more Devices or as a Guest (as defined in Section 2.3.1 below) (the “User” “you”, “your”) and Glue have entered into an agreement (the “Agreement”) which – subject to Section 2.1.1 below – entitles you to access and use the Services and that govern your use of the Device(s).

However, Glue reserves the right to implement such changes with immediate effect in order to maintain security of the Services or to comply with law. Any updates of the Services are subject to the Terms together with any additional terms that may be provided with such update. We strongly recommend that you install any updates promptly.
  • Guests
  • Any person that has an Account and is authorised by an owner of any Device(s) to the User to access one or more designated Devices (“Guest”) is thereby given access to operate such Devices. Please be careful to only invite Guests that you trust.
  • These Terms (including our Privacy Policy) apply also to Guests use of the Services. We may share your and your Guests’ information with our partners to provide our Services and to allow our partners to provide products and services.

It is the User’s responsibility to ensure that such information is kept secure and not disclosed to any other person or entity in order for the Services to remain inaccessible to unauthorised persons. We strongly recommend all users of the Services to use PIN code protection with all mobile devices on which the Application is installed.
  • You acknowledge and agree that Glue has the right to assume that the User is the sender of orders and other instructions when sent using the User’s login information and password.
