Terms of Service
Agreement between User and www.flock.aero
Welcome to Flock.aero. The www.flock.aero Site (the "Site" or "Service", including any sub-domains, unless expressly excluded by their own terms of service) is comprised of various web pages operated by FltCtrl Ltd ("Flock.aero", "us", "we", or "our"). Flock.aero is offered to you conditioned on your acceptance without modification of the terms, conditions, and notices contained herein (the "Terms", "Terms of Service"). Your use of Flock.aero constitutes your Agreement to all such Terms. Please read these Terms carefully before using the www.flock.aero Site. These Terms apply to all visitors, users, members and others who access or use the Service. If you do not agree to be bound by these Terms of Service, you should stop using the Site immediately. In these Terms of Service, User ("you", "member", "User", or "Users") means any third party that accesses the Site and is not either (i) employed by FltCtrl Ltd and acting in the course of their employment or (ii) engaged as a consultant or otherwise providing services to FltCtrl Ltd and accessing the Site in connection with the provision of such services. Flock.aero is an online aviation B2B marketing platform that empowers aircraft operators and suppliers to directly connect, create opportunities, and increase profits. At its very core Flock is a listing of all the airports and suppliers operating at these airports, providing up to date contact details, listings of services and other related useful information. What makes Flock different from any other regular aviation directory is that it is open to the community – meaning all the information is freely available for everyone, but also everyone can correct and provide missing information and unique insights. We're continually working on improving Flock – by adding and updating information in our databases, but also by building new and unique features that will help our users always be informed on critical business information and connect suppliers with operators helping them find new opportunities to improve their business operations.

Transactions Between Buyers and Sellers
Flock.aero provides a web-based platform for exchanging information between suppliers, operators, buyers and sellers of products and services. Flock.aero additionally provides web-based transaction platforms for operators, suppliers, buyers and sellers to place, accept, arrange, manage and fulfil orders for the provision of products and services online. However, Flock .aero does not represent any supplier, operator, seller or buyer in these specific transactions. Flock.aero does not control and is not liable or responsible for the availability, quality, or safety, of the products or services offered for sale by its members, the ability of buyers to complete a purchase or pay for it or the ability of the sellers to complete a deal. Operators, suppliers, buyers and sellers on Flock .aero shall assume the risks of conducting any purchase and sale transactions. They are fully responsible for establishing and executing of their own terms and conditions for the transactions conducted on, through or as a result of use of Flock .aero, including, without limitation, terms regarding payment, warranties, insurance, fees, taxes, title, licenses, fines, permits, handling, transportation and storage. Flock.aero is not liable or responsible for any claims, liabilities, damages, expenditures, inconveniences, or business disruptions of any kind that may arise as a result of or in connection with any transactions made between operators, suppliers, buyers and sellers. Furthermore, you as a user, agree to release and indemnify Flock .aero (and its directors, agents, affiliates, employees and officers) from all demands, claims, proceedings, actions, expenses, costs and damages (including without limitation any special, actual, incidental or consequential damages) arising out of or in connection with any dispute arising from transaction made. As a user, you are hereby made aware that there may be risks of dealing with people acting under false pretences. Flock.aero uses several techniques to verify the accuracy of certain information our members provide us when they sign up for a membership service on Flock .aero. However, Flock .aero cannot and does not confirm each User's identity (including, without limitation, Members). We urge you to use your means, as well as common sense, to evaluate with whom you are dealing.
Some parts of the Service are billed on a membership subscription basis ("Subscription(s)"). You will be charged in advance on a recurring and periodic basis ("Billing Cycle"). Billing cycles are set either on a monthly or annual basis, depending on the type of subscription plan you select when purchasing a Membership Subscription. At the end of each Billing Cycle, your Subscription will automatically renew under the exact same conditions unless you cancel it or FltCtrl Ltd cancels it. You may cancel your Subscription renewal either through your online account management page or by contacting FltCtrl Ltd customer support team. Paid Subscription fees are non-refundable once made – so if you plan to cancel your Subscription, you will need to do so in advance of payment deduction else we will not refund accordingly. A valid payment method, including credit card, is required to process the payment for your Subscription. You shall provide FltCtrl Ltd with accurate and complete billing information including full name, address, state, zip code, postal code, telephone number, your company VAT Registration Number, and a valid payment method information. By submitting such payment information, you automatically authorise FltCtrl Ltd to charge all Subscription fees incurred through your account to any such payment instruments. Should automatic billing fail to occur for any reason, FltCtrl Ltd will issue an electronic invoice indicating that you must proceed manually, within a specific deadline date, with the full payment corresponding to the billing period as stated on the invoice.
FltCtrl Ltd may, at its sole discretion, offer a Subscription with a free trial for a limited period ("Free Trial"). You may be required to enter your billing information to sign up for the Free Trial. If you do enter your billing information when signing up for the Free Trial, you will not be charged by FltCtrl Ltd until the Free Trial has expired. On the last day of the Free Trial period, unless you cancel your Subscription, you will be automatically charged the applicable Subscription fees for the type of Subscription you have selected. Paid Subscription fees are non-refundable once made. At any time and without notice, FltCtrl Ltd reserves the right to (i) modify the terms and conditions of the Free Trial offer, or (ii) cancel such Free Trial offer.
FltCtrl Ltd, in its sole discretion and at any time, may modify the Subscription fees for the Subscriptions. Any Subscription fee change will become effective at the end of the then-current Billing Cycle. FltCtrl Ltd will provide you with reasonable prior notice of any change in Subscription fees to allow you to terminate your Subscription before such change becomes effective. Your continued use of the Service after the Subscription fee change comes into effect constitutes your Agreement to pay the modified Subscription fee amount.
