Colgate Connect Terms of Service – End Users
Last Updated: August 24, 2018
These Terms of Service (these "Terms of Service") set forth the terms and conditions upon which Colgate Palmolive
Company ("Colgate" or “we” or “us”) offers you access to the Colgate Connect website currently located at
https://shop.colgate.com/ (together with any materials
and services available therein, and successor site(s) thereto, the “Site”), and Colgate’s proprietary Colgate
Connect E1 Smart Toothbrush through the Colgate mobile application (the "App"), which App is powered by Kolibree
SAS and its subsidiaries. The Site and the App are collectively referred to as the “Services.” By clicking
“I Agree” or by accessing or using the Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms of Service. If you do not
agree to these Terms of Service, do not access or use the Services. This is a legally enforceable contract.
Colgate is under a legal duty to supply the App in conformity with these Terms of Service.
Changing the App. The App, by its nature, needs to be updated and developed continuously over time. Where possible, we will try to give you reasonable notice of any major changes to, or discontinuation of, the App. Colgate may modify the App without prior notice, provided that the modification is reasonable for you taking into account your interests. A modification is, in particular, reasonable for you if it is necessary to adapt the App to changed circumstances with regard to technological developments, market requirements, and any changes in applicable law, and in case of any new features, functions, or services added to the App for your use. If a modification of the App is not reasonably acceptable for you, you have the right to terminate these Terms of Service effective immediately upon notice. You shall have no other claims against Colgate due to changes in and to the App.
Changing these Terms of Service. We may change these Terms of Service from time to time by notifying you of such changes by any reasonable means, including by posting revised Terms of Service through the Services. Any such changes will not apply to any dispute between you and us arising prior to the date on which we posted the revised Terms of Service incorporating such changes, or otherwise notified you of such changes. You have the right to object to any change or amendment of these Terms of Service within two (2) weeks after the date of the notification of the intended change or amendment. In case of a timely objection, each party shall be entitled to terminate the Terms of Service upon notice to the other party, such termination to become effective upon the date that the intended change or amendment was to take effect. If you do not object within two (2) weeks after the date of the notification, the change or amendment shall be deemed accepted by you and become an integral part of the agreement between the parties. Your use of the Services following any changes to these Terms of Service will constitute your acceptance of such changes. In its notification, Colgate will inform you of your right to object within two (2) weeks, each party’s right to terminate the Terms of Service in case of objection, and the legal consequences of non-objection. The “Last Updated” legend above indicates when these Terms of Service were last changed. We may, at any time and without liability, modify or discontinue all or part of the Services (including access to the Services via any third-party links); charge, modify or waive any fees required to use the Services; or offer opportunities to some or all users of the Services.

7.12 Waivers. A waiver by either party of a breach or violation of any provision of these Terms of Service will not constitute or be construed as a waiver of any subsequent or other breach or violation of that provision or as a waiver of any breach or violation of any other provision of these Terms of Service. No waiver will be effective unless signed in writing by the party to be charged.
7.13 Severability. If any provision of these Terms of Service is held to be unenforceable, such provision shall be severed and the remaining provisions will remain enforceable. The severed provision will be replaced by an enforceable provision most nearly reflecting the intention of the parties.

The license you have been granted herein is limited to a non-transferable license to use the App on an Apple-branded product that runs Apple’s iOS operating system and is owned or controlled by you, or as otherwise permitted by the Usage Rules set forth in Apple’s App Store Terms of Service, except that the App may also be accessed and used by other accounts associated with you via Apple’s Family Sharing or volume purchasing programs. In addition, you must comply with the terms of any third-party agreement applicable to you when using the App, such as your wireless data service agreement.
