1. Overview of the Service

  1. As part of the Service, Spectacles provides hosted continuous integration and developer tools that allow you to test and audit your Looker® instance, including content (such as Looks and Dashboards) and LookML® code. Subject to these Terms of Service, we grant you a personal, non-transferable, non-exclusive, revocable, limited right to access the Site, and if you register for the Service, to use the Service, in each case solely for your internal business purposes. This includes the right for you to make a reasonable number of copies of any of our published descriptions and specifications of the Site and Service (“Documentation”).
  2. In providing the Site and Service, we may process such information as the URL of your Looker instance, credentials of your Looker instance, the range of configurations you select in Services, your name and email address (“User Data”), and other information you may provide in connection with your use of the Site or Services.
  3. We may in our sole election offer free memberships, offers, and trial memberships to the Service (“Trial”). If access to the Service is provided to you for free or for Trial purposes, such access is governed by these Terms of Service. At any time prior to or during the free or Trial period, we may, in our sole discretion, terminate the free or Trial access without prior notice and without any liability to you, to the extent permitted under applicable law, for any reason, including to prevent abuse of the free or Trial access. After the free or Trial access period expires, you may only continue using the Service by enrolling in a paid Subscription, if available, or as we otherwise permit.
