CompGauge Subscription Terms & Conditions

This Agreement (“Agreement”) is entered into between CompGauge (CompGauge, We, Us, Our) and the Customer listed on the checkout form (“Customer, You”). The parties agree to the terms & conditions below.

By purchasing a Plus subscription, you get access to a read-only version of CompGauge’s Mastersheet Google Sheets Workbook and Airtable Base (“Workbook) and Airtable Base (“Base”). By purchasing a Plus subscription, you will receive access to a read-write version of CompGauge’s Mastersheet Google Sheets Workbook (“Workbook) and Airtable Base (“Base”). For the Plus Plan, you will receive this access by being added to the Workbook as a Viewer with Read-Only Privileges and to the Base as a Collaborator with Read-Only Privileges. For the Pro Plan, you will receive this access by being added to the Workbook as an Editor with Read-Write Privileges and to the Base as a Collaborator with Read-Write Privileges.
In order to access the Workbook, you must have a Gmail account. A Gmail account is a free product from www.gmail.com.
A Mastersheet is a spreadsheet with all of our data in Airtable or Google Sheets.
The Base & Workbook will contain a Mastersheet unfiltered, ungrouped, and sorted alphabetically with all of our approved entries; a Mastersheet grouped by location; a Mastersheet grouped by Company, and a Mastersheet grouped by sales roles.
The Workbook and Base contain all of our approved entries we have received up to the date of purchase.
You will have access to the Base and Workbook for as long as you are subscribed. Once subscription is terminated, you will lose access to the Base and Workbook.
You will receive all new entries we approve while you are subscribed. After your subscription is canceled, you will not receive access to any new entries.
Compgauge cannot guarantee 800+ entries/per month. 800+ new entries/month is an estimate derived from the monthly amount of entries we typically have received on a monthly basis. We are not liable for providing any number of new entries for as long as you are subscribed, although we will exert reasonable effort to update the Base and Workbook all approved entries that we receive.
We will update the Base and Workbook at a minimum monthly interval during your subscription interval with new approved entries we receive.
Customer will not directly or indirectly transfer any data that you receive from us (including anonymous, aggregate, or derived data) to anyone. This clause continues to be bound beyond the subscription duration. If CompGauge.com suspects you to be in violation of this rule, we reserve the right to terminate your subscription without warning.
I have read the FAQ at compgauge.com/faq.
Although CompGauge will make reasonable effort to normalize the entries we receive, the entries are provided “as is”.
The “By Company” Mockup Graphic on compgauge.com is a depiction of a potential future project of CompGauge. CompGauge is not required to provide “By Company” page dashboards as part of either a Plus or Pro subscription. You understand that these “By Company” page dashboards are not included as part of your subscription.
CompGauge cannot guarantee that our data can be utilized in negotiations with an employer. CompGauge cannot guarantee that our data can be utilized to increase your compensation with an employer. CompGauge cannot guarantee that our data can be utilized to find employment with fairer quotas, higher job satisfaction, or better work-life balance. Any reports we share on our site of such benefits are self-reported claims from users of compgauge.com that we cannot verify are accurate.
You may cancel anytime. Your subscription will run until the end of the monthly interval, after which your subscription and access will be terminated and you will no longer be charged.
There are no refunds for the Plus or Pro plan.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the Plus or Pro plan, you may contact us at info@compgauge.com
