We, Prismatic LLC (“Prismatic”), are a corporation incorporated in Massachusetts, in the United States of America. Prismatic is the owner and provider of Hue Pro and Hue Pro Tasker. Mailing address: P.O. Box 8515 Lowell, MA 01853, USA. You can also contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
These Conditions may be accessed via the Applications directly from your Device or on our Website at http://www.hueproapp.com. The definitive text of these Conditions is the English (USA) version. By using our Services, you agree to be bound by these Conditions and any applicable laws regarding your use of Hue Pro and/ or Hue Pro Tasker. You must also pay any charges for the Services which may be applicable. DO NOT USE THE SERVICES IF THESE CONDITIONS ARE UNACCEPTABLE TO YOU.
- In the event that you are or become a paying customer of any part of the Application(s) and/ or Services or any other product part of the Hue Pro and/or Hue Pro Tasker offering, Prismatic will provide to you relevant information regarding price, delivery procedure and cancellation options on a case–by-case basis, before completing the payment for your purchase. Any purchase will be effective upon the processing of your payment.
- Once you start using Hue Pro and/or Hue Pro Tasker, you hereby agree to waive any right to a limited period in which you could revoke your purchase or claim a refund upon cancellation of your purchase (also known as a cooling off period) (if any) available to you under any applicable e-commerce regulations or consumer protection laws. In the event a waiver of these rights is prohibited under the law, this cooling off period shall be limited to seven (7) days or (if shorter) the minimum period permitted by law.
- Each time you attempt to interact with Hue Pro and/or Hue Pro Tasker, such as when you create a preset, you will send data for which your network operator will charge at your usual data rates.
- Unless otherwise specifically provided by Prismatic, our licence to you under these Conditions is personal to you and allows you to access and use the Application(s) and the Services only on the Device on which the software was first installed. The licence is not transferrable to another person or another Device without Prismatic’s agreement, which will only be given in exceptional circumstances, or if otherwise expressly provided in these Conditions.
Prismatic reserves the right to limit your identification attempts in any month, or cease to provide its Service to you without further notice. Prismatic may change, suspend or discontinue any aspect of Hue Pro and/or Hue Pro Tasker at any time, including the availability of any feature, database and/ or content. Prismatic may also impose limits on certain features and services or restrict your access to parts or all of the Services without liability. Where these changes or suspensions would amount to a complete termination of the Services, you may be entitled to a refund of the reasonable part of any charges paid by you. Continued use of the Application(s) and/ or Services may require a download of new releases of software with different functionality and that may have different licence conditions.
AVAILABILITY OF SERVICES
Prismatic will do its best to offer you a smooth service, but Prismatic gives no guarantees that Hue Pro and/or Hue Pro Tasker will be fault free or that the Services will be uninterrupted. If a fault does occur, please report it to Customer Services, at email@example.com and Prismatic will attempt to correct the fault as soon as it reasonably can.
Prismatic will occasionally restrict your access to the Services to carry out repairs, maintenance or to introduce new functionality or services and Prismatic will endeavour to keep disruption to a minimum.
New Services are subject to a period of testing. This means that a new Service may not perform with complete functionality, may be undergoing testing, may be inconsistently available, may have software “bugs” being fixed by us and may have other issues affecting availability and functionality.

If, despite our request that you not send us your ideas, you still send them to us, then regardless of what you say to us, you agree that: (i) your submissions and their contents will automatically become Prismatic’s property, without any compensation to you; (ii) you will not assert against Prismatic any rights or ownership and you will not claim any reward (financial or otherwise) in respect of any such submissions; (iii) Prismatic may use or redistribute the submissions and their contents for any purpose and in any way; (iv) there is no obligation for Prismatic to review any material that you submit to us; and (v) there is no obligation to keep any such material confidential.
These Conditions and the relationship between you and Prismatic shall be governed by the laws of the United States of America without regard to its conflict of law provisions. In the event of a dispute, Prismatic wants to address your concerns without needing a formal legal case. Before filing a claim against us, you agree to try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting email@example.com. Prismatic will try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting you via email. If a dispute is not resolved within fifteen (15) business days of submission, you or Hue Pro may bring a formal proceeding.
Outside of the United States. You and Prismatic agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Massachusetts, in the United States of America.
In the United States. You and Prismatic agree to resolve any claims relating to these Conditions or the Services through final and binding arbitration, except as set forth under Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate below. The American Arbitration Association (AAA) will administer the arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. The arbitration will be held in the United States county where you live or work, in Massachusetts, MA, or any other location Prismatic agrees to. The AAA rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees. Either party may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Services, or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above. You may only resolve disputes with Prismatic on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations are not allowed. In the event that the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, you and Prismatic agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) will be brought in the federal or state courts of Massachusetts, MA. Both you and Prismatic consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there.
