Thank you for using Niavo. Niavo is a service of Smart Lingo Co. Limited. The terms "us", "we," or " Niavo" (as the case may be) refer to Smart Lingo Co. Limited., respectively, based on your country of residence.

These Terms of Service (the "Terms") and our Privacy Policy govern your use of all available Niavo Services and Apps ("Niavo"), so please read them carefully before using Niavo.

By using Niavo, you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you don't agree to these Terms, do not use Niavo.

In that case, "you" and "your" will refer to that organization.

We may revise the Terms from time to time. Changes may be posted to our blog and within our Apps, so please check that regularly. The most current version will always be posted on our Terms page. By continuing to use Niavo after revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms. If you do not agree to the new Terms, please stop using Niavo.
