Terms & Conditions

Effective Date: 15/05/2024

1. Acceptance of Terms
Welcome to NEEbytes Inc. ("NEEbytes," "we," "us," or "our"). By accessing or using our app-based ecosystem services ("Services"), you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions ("Terms"). If you do not agree to these Terms, please refrain from accessing or using our Services. These Terms may be updated from time to time, and the latest version will be posted on our app or website.

2. Description of Services
2.1. Data Market Services: NEEbytes offers a blockchain-based ecosystem that allows individuals to convert data into our native digital asset NEE coins. Our Services enable users to participate in a data economy where individuals can generate data and receive NEE coins. Companies can access this data by purchasing NEE coins from individuals in open exchanges.
2.2 AI Chatbot Services: NEEbytes offers an AI-powered chatbot solution for business-to-business (B2B) users. This service includes the provision of an out-of-the-box AI chatbot trained using the public content from the user's website. Users can also upload additional content to enhance the chatbot’s knowledge. The performance and accuracy of the chatbot depend on the provided content. Users are responsible for testing and validating the chatbot's responses to ensure they meet their business needs. NEEbytes does not take responsibility for the accuracy or reliability of the information generated by the AI.


3. User Eligibility
Our Services are available to individuals aged 16 years and above. By accessing or using our Services, you represent and warrant that you are at least 16 years old. Users are solely responsible for complying with their local regulations regarding age restrictions.

4. User Accounts
4.1. Account Creation: To use our Services, users are required to create an account. Users must provide accurate and complete information during the registration process. By creating an account, users consent to receive communications from NEEbytes regarding their account and the Services.
4.2. Account Security: Users are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of their account credentials, including their username and password. Users are also responsible for all activities that occur under their account. If users suspect any unauthorized access to their account, they must notify NEEbytes immediately.

5. Data Usage and Privacy
5.1. Data Collection: NEEbytes values users' data privacy and only collects the information necessary to provide the Services. We collect two types of data:
a. Analytical Data: We may collect anonymous analytical data, such as website usage patterns, app interactions, and user preferences, to improve our Services and user experience. Analytical data does not contain personally identifiable information (PII).
b. User-Provided Data: Users voluntarily provide data to generate NEE coins within the ecosystem. This user-provided data includes responses to data cards, which are a sequence of questions like surveys. User-generated data is under the user's control and can be deleted at any time through the platform.
5.2. Face Data: NEEbytes uses face recognition technology provided by AWS Rekognition for account authentication. The face data collected is solely used for user verification during the account creation process and to prevent the creation of multiple accounts or robot access. Face data is sensitive user information, and we handle it properly to protect user security and privacy.
5.3. Data Storage and Security: We store user-generated data using AWS S3 technology with end-to-end encryption to ensure data security and confidentiality. NEEbytes follows industry best practices to protect user data from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.
5.4. Data Sharing: NEEbytes may share anonymous analytical data with third-party services, such as Google and Facebook, for analytics purposes only. User-provided data, including face data, is not shared without explicit user consent, except as required by law or regulation.
5.5. Data Retention: Face data is retained only for the time required for user verification during the account creation process. Once verified, user-generated data is retained as long as the user's account is active or as required by applicable laws.
5.6. Privacy Policy: For more details on data usage and privacy, please refer to our Privacy Policy, specifically in the section titled "Data Usage and Privacy" and the subsection related to "Face Data."
5.7. Data Card Usage: When users create and submit data cards within our Services, they grant NEEbytes the permission to use this data in accordance with the purposes outlined in our whitepaper and for the effective operation of the Services. This includes but is not limited to, teaching and fine-tuning Large Language Models (LLM), personalization of services, testing the digital marketing bidding system, and improvement of user experience. We are committed to maintaining the confidentiality and integrity of your data, ensuring it is used solely for the intended purposes. We ensure that all user-generated data, including data submitted via data cards, is processed in compliance with applicable data protection laws and regulations.

5.8 Website Content: The content used to train the AI chatbot includes public information from the user's website and any additional content uploaded by the user. This content is used solely to enhance the chatbot's performance and can be cleared and replaced by the user at any time through the dashboard.

5.9 Chat Messages: The chat messages between the website visitors and the AI chatbot are stored exclusively for the website owner's access. These messages can be deleted or downloaded by the user at any time. NEEbytes does not use or access these messages for any other purpose.

5.10 OpenAI Integration: Our chatbot solution uses Large Language Models (LLM) provided by OpenAI. Users must agree to OpenAI's terms and conditions in addition to our own. NEEbytes is not responsible for any downtime or inaccuracies resulting from the use of OpenAI's models. In the event of a prolonged downtime (over 24 hours), NEEbytes will provide a refund for the affected period upon request.


6. Currency and Commissions
6.1. NEE Coins: NEE coins are the native digital asset of the NEEbytes ecosystem. Users can generate NEE coins by completing data cards manually. The value of NEE coins within the ecosystem is not linked to any external market until the data market becomes fully functional.
6.2. Commissions: When the ecosystem's data market is fully functional, NEEbytes may charge a commission on coins used to purchase data. This commission will not directly affect users; it is designed to support the ecosystem's maintenance and development.
