We (UNICO.ai CZ, s.r.o., business registration number: 06118313) are a Czech IT company that aims at improving cooperation between universities and businesses. We want this cooperation to be efficient, transparent and beneficial for researchers, universities, entrepreneurs and the society at large. As one of our contributions towards this goal we have created this smart platform: a database in which everyone may search for experts with relevant focus and expertise. The database is based largely on public data and on data provided for this purpose by researchers and universities.

We provide you services based on the package (subscription) that you choose. We offer a simple package for free that allows you to try our platform out. Additional (premium) services are available for a monthly or yearly fee. You may find more details on what services each package includes and how much it costs in our Product List.
You may use premium services only if you pay the fee. Once the subscription period is over, you may use only the services that we provide for free.
We are committed to gradually improving our services. That is why the platform and these Terms and Conditions may change from time to time.

If do not agree with the change and consider it substantial, you may terminate your subscription and we will give you back your fee for the remaining prepaid period.
We want the services to run as smoothly and reliably as possible. However, that is not always possible due to technical problems, maintenance, upgrades or similar issues. We commit ourselves to the following availability of our services:[doplnit]
If we do not stand up to our commitment, we will compensate you for our failure by providing you with a discount on your next payment.

We will not allow other users to see the data that you label as private. We may, however, use such data for improving our algorithms; in doing so, we take all measures to prevent other users from reconstructing your private data from their search results.
