Emote & Razelle360 Terms and Conditions
Emote and Razelle360 are designed to be as simple as possible, and we are going to keep our legal terms clean and concise as well. It’s our goal as the company, Razelle, Inc., referred to in this legally binding document as Razelle, to ensure you have the best possible experience when using Emote and Razelle360, and we want you to be aware of the terms and conditions that come with using Emote and Razelle360, in plain English. You, referred to in this document as “The Customer”, accept these terms and conditions by using Emote, Razelle360, or any other variation of Emote.
Rights and Limits
By installing or purchasing Emote, or any variation of our Emote product, the terms and conditions set forth are deemed accepted by you, the customer. You can terminate your relationship using our services at any time if you do not accept our terms and conditions. By purchasing Emote, we grant you rights to use our software for the duration of your subscription. Emote is a leased software & service, and the software is no longer leased upon termination of your service. At no time does you, the customer, own the software or be granted a lifetime access to the software.
Razelle retains all rights associated to Emote, including name, graphics, logos, enhancements, modifications, and updates to Emote. Emote is a combination of technologies developed by Razelle, along with open source technologies, and third-party technologies, designed to work seamlessly under Emote. The combination of these technologies is also leased to you, the customer, and are owned by their respected parties. Razelle makes no promises or guarantees that your device will function flawlessly when using Emote, although Razelle promises to make every goodwill effort to ensure Emote provides you a trouble-free technology experience by making every effort possible to install critical and security updates for your respective operating system, protect and secure your device from viruses, malware, spyware, and unwanted pieces of software, along with daily backups of your data located in your operating system default desktop, document, music, and video directories.
We want to be extremely clear about the data we collect when you install Emote, and how we use your data in order to provide you service. Razelle does not sell or distribute any data Emote may collect about your device, nor do we collect personally identifiable information about your device because we have zero right to do so. Razelle does not scan, distribute, nor have the ability to view any of your files and folders on your device when performing backups, or general install of Emote. As a privacy-focused company, Emote does not collect any personal information that may be used to identify the customer, besides what the customer voluntarily gives Razelle, which could include customer name, device name, and email.
Emote does not remotely track, monitor or view any part of the customer’s device without explicit permission from the customer, nor has the ability to without the customer’s permission, besides what is advertised by the Emote software. An example of where the customer may request Emote to view the customer’s device is during a support session to resolve an Emote related issue. Certain monitoring capabilities are required in order to provide the advertised service. An example of the monitoring Emote provides includes predication or dedication of failing hardware and security threat detection. Emote only collects the very basic information needed in order to perform device updates, provide security protection, and run backups. Detailed specifics of data that is collected for Emote to perform is below:
Application/OS Updates, Security, and Backup:
• Operating system version
• Device make and model
• List of currently installed software to prevent incompatibility when applying updates and security threat removals
• List of currently installed, pending, and failed updates
• Device name, installed hardware,
• Error and crash logs
Updates: Emote & Razelle will apply appropriate software and operating system updates in a reasonable amount of time to enhance your security & ensure peak performance. Emote will only attempt to update your operating system, and common third-party software used daily by a majority of the population.
Emote will attempt to install publicly available updates, along with operating system updates, after extensive testing by Razelle. The customer may request their device be excluded from having certain updates applied by speaking with Razelle customer service. Although, Razelle is not responsible for the consequences of such actions, and may be charge for any service calls because of issues caused by such update limitations.
Security: Emote & Razelle will provide security protection and monitoring designed to stop threats before issues can occur. You will not be notified if a threat is detected, and it will automatically be quarantined for further investigation by Razelle. There is no scan the customer will need to perform, due to there being no signature database to run and check files against. Should a threat be detected by proprietary Razelle algorithms that Emote is unable to remove, Razelle will immediately reach out to the customer to inform of next steps, which may include a remote or on-site visit, which may or may not be a charged service. If an infection occurs, Razelle will remove the infection free of charge if the infection isn’t due to the tampering of Emote software, or due to the disabling of our security protections. Razelle promises to make every goodwill effort to monitor for security threats on the customer’s device, but cannot promise everything will be caught and stopped.
Backups: Emote will automatically make daily backups of any file or folder on your desktop, or any file or folder in the default documents, music and videos directory of your respective operating system. Emote will make one massive backup, and then only backup changed or altered files thereafter. The customer will have the option to restore data to their desired location, or to the operating system default location. By default, Emote upon install will request the customer to encrypt their backups with a password to ensure that their data is safe and secure during transit to our datacenter. The customer does not have to set a password, but is highly recommended by Razelle. Razelle uses a variety of datacenters provided by third parties to ensure the customer’s backups are always available, and kept secure in the cloud. Razelle takes security very seriously, so we purposely designed Emote to not allow recovery of a backup should a user accidentally wipe their cloud backups from Emote, or forget their backup password. We will not be able to recover, view, or re-apply the backups nor password you make once they are set, deleted or on our network, so ensure you remember your password set when starting your first backup. There is absolutely no recovery when setting a password or wiping your cloud backups from Emote.
SLA (Service Level Agreement): Razelle guarantees Emote and its provided services be operational 99.99% of the time each month of the year. Should Razelle drop below its SLA promise of 99.99% availability, which includes the ability to remotely perform updates, security removals, and backup transfer, Razelle will provide a credit for each day the service is unavailable due to Razelle’s wrongdoing. The customer must notify Razelle and request a credit within 15 days of the experienced service interruption, otherwise a credit will not be granted. Razelle will not grant credits should service interruption exceed 15 days in a single calendar month.

Razelle is not responsible for any damage to the device during recovery attempts. Razelle may need to open or attempt to open the device, which may void any warranties with the device's manufacture.
Our technicians fix computers every day and as such, we are very aware of the realities of computer repair. Razelle fixes computers for both business users and home users and this short document is made to inform you, as a Home or Business User, of the realities of computer repair so that our technicians can provide you with the best possible service. Please read these few pages carefully and don’t hesitate to contact us if something isn't clear.
A Home User is a person who uses their computer at home for personal use. This means that you do not have any work or business related files on your computer. If you do have one or two work or business related files on your computer, we may still be happy to fix it for you, but you acknowledge that we do not take any responsibility for any consequential loss which may arise out of damage or destruction of those files which may occur, despite our best efforts. Computers are complicated machines and as with anything complicated, things can always go wrong. No matter how much care our technicians take when they are fixing your computer, there is always a chance that something unexpected can happen resulting in the loss of information (data) or damage to hardware. This is especially true if your computer is in a precarious state to begin with.
As such our technicians follow a routine to ensure as far as possible that:
a) You do not lose any valuable data and,
b) You are aware of the choices available to you if there is a chance you will lose the data contained on your computer.
Essentially, there are two types of problems with computers:
1. Those that originate as a result of faulty hardware; and
2. Those that originate as a result of a software problem.
Hardware: Problems originating from faults within the physical structure of a computer are usually more serious than those created by software errors. If something has gone wrong with your computer’s hardware, then the defective part will most likely need to be replaced. If the defective part (such as a hard drive, CD or Floppy Disk) contains data, then there is a high probability that this data has been lost and cannot be recovered. In certain cases, where it may be possible to resurrect your data, and you would like us to try and save it, we may need to take your computer back to our HQ in order to try and retrieve it. Please remember that because hardware faults (especially hard drive faults) are potentially the most dangerous to your data, our technicians make no guarantee that they will be able to recover your lost data.
A Business User is a person who uses their computer for business use whether it’s at home or in an office. This means that you have work or business related files on your computer. While we always try our hardest to avoid it, Razelle does not take any responsibility for any consequential loss which may arise out of damage or destruction of those files which may occur, despite our best efforts.
If your problem has arisen as a result of software errors, our technicians always recommend that you perform a backup of all your important data before any fix is attempted. As with hardware, in some cases it is possible that data has been corrupted to the extent that it has been lost. Software errors are usually only a concern for our technicians if important system data such as files that the operating system uses in order to operate have been affected. To use the analogy of a boat, if the hull is seriously damaged then it may need to be rebuilt, or if there is only a small leak then it can be repaired. Some cases require a fresh start (an event called a “format”) in order for us to leave you with a stable and working computer. If a format is required, then our technicians will need you to supply them with the installation disks for your operating system (Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista etc.) along with its product key. In addition, if there is any other software or devices that you would like our technicians to install in the event of a format, then you will need to provide us with the appropriate installation and product registration keys. Razelle can only use original purchased software and / or registration keys.
a) I understand the information provided above and I am aware of the potential loss of data or damage to hardware or software that may occur as a result of my computer fix.
b) I acknowledge and agree that Razelle rely on information I have provided them for repairing my computer. I acknowledge that Razelle will accept no liability for any loss or damage to my computer (including hardware or software) which arises out of incorrect or incomplete information provided by me.
c) I acknowledge and agree that Razelle will perform the computer repair services with due care and skill, but further acknowledge that the liability of Razelle for any loss or damage to my computer (including hardware and software), however caused, is limited to supplying the service again.
