Terms of Service
Privacy Policy


By using the oncell.com web site (“Service”), or any services of OnCell, Inc. (“OnCell”), you are agreeing to be bound by the following terms and conditions (“Terms of Service”).

OnCell reserves the right to update and change the Terms of Service from time to time without notice. Any new features that augment or enhance the current Service, including the release of new tools and resources, shall be subject to the Terms of Service. Continued use of the Service after any such changes shall constitute your consent to such changes. You can review the most current version of the Terms of Service at any time at: http://www.oncell.com/legal

Violation of any of the terms below will result in the termination of your active, live mobile application (“Account”). While OnCell prohibits such conduct and Content on the Service, you understand and agree that OnCell cannot be responsible for the Content posted on the Service and you nonetheless may be exposed to such materials. You agree to use the Service at your own risk.

Account Terms

  • You must be 16 years or older to use this Service
  • You must be a real, live human being. Accounts registered by “bots” or other automated methods are not permitted.
  • You must provide your legal full name, a valid email address, and any other information requested in order to complete the signup process.
  • Your login may only be used by one person – a single login shared by multiple people is not permitted. You may create separate logins for as many people as your plan allows.
  • You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and password. OnCell cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage from your failure to comply with this security obligation.
  • You are responsible for all Content posted and activity that occurs under your account (even when Content is posted by others who have accounts under your account).
  • One person or legal entity may not maintain more than one free account.
  • You may not use the Service for any illegal or unauthorized purpose. You must not, in the use of the Service, violate any laws in your jurisdiction (including but not limited to copyright laws).

Payment, Refunds, Upgrading and Downgrading Terms

A valid credit card is required for paying accounts, unless other payment terms have been agreed upon in writing. Free accounts are not required to provide a credit card number.

If you initially sign up for an OnCell subscription, and you don't cancel that subscription within 30 days, you will be billed monthly starting on the 30th day after your account was initially created. If you cancel prior to the processing of your first invoice on the 30th day, you will not be charged.

When you decide to publish your project by purchasing a public slot on the OnCell platform, this will end your free trial. You will be billed for your first month immediately upon upgrading.

The Service is billed in advance on a monthly basis and is non-refundable. There will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service, upgrade/downgrade refunds, or refunds for months unused with an open account. In order to treat everyone equally, no exceptions will be made.

All fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties, excluding only United States (federal or state) income taxes.

For any upgrade or downgrade in plan level, your credit card that you provided will automatically be charged the new rate on your next billing cycle, unless alternate payment methods have been agreed upon writing.

Downgrading your Service may cause the loss of Content, features, or capacity of your Account. OnCell does not accept any liability for such loss.

Cancellation and Termination

You are solely responsible for properly canceling a paid subscription, should you wish to do so. There will be no refunds under any circumstances for previous months or years subscription. An email or phone request to cancel a subscription is required to cancel a subscription. Contact your Client Account Manager to cancel your subscription.

Please note well that when you cancel your account, all of your Content will be immediately deleted from the Service. This information can not be recovered once your account is cancelled. If you wish to keep your content available and temporarily pause your account, contact your Client Account Manager to determine what arrangements can be made.

If you cancel the Service before the end of your current paid up month, your cancellation will take effect immediately and you will not be charged again.

OnCell, in its sole discretion, has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service, or any other OnCell service, for any reason at any time. Such termination of the Service will result in the deactivation or deletion of your Account or your access to your Account. OnCell reserves the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time.

Modifications to the Service and Prices

OnCell reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service (or any part thereof) with or without notice.

Prices of all Services, including but not limited to monthly subscription plan fees to the Service, are subject to change upon 30 days notice from us. Such notice may be provided at any time by posting the changes to the OnCell Site (oncell.com) or the Service itself. OnCell shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, price change, suspension or discontinuance of the Service.

We claim no intellectual property rights over the material you provide to the Service. Your profile and materials uploaded remain yours. However, by setting your pages to be shared publicly, you agree to allow others to view and share your Content.

When you agree to pay a subscription fee and make your mobile application available to the public, you are using the OnCell Services and you have an Account.
