The terms “we,” “us,” and “our” refer to Highfive.
If we make any changes to this Agreement, we will notify you by updating the “Last Updated” date above on the Site and either through the Service, in an email notification, or by other means. Such changes will be effective upon your use of the Service after such notification, except any material changes will only be effective upon the earlier of (i) thirty (30) days after such notification, and (ii) your continued use of the Service once you know about the changes.

Any corrections, bug fixes, new features or functions (the “Updates”) added to the Service by us in our discretion during the Term of this Agreement are subject to this Agreement.
