2. About these terms
These are the terms of service (“Terms”) that apply to all use of the ChilliConnect platform (“Service”) and of our related software development kits (“SDKs”). These Terms apply when you register to create an account (“Account”) or sign up to one of our pricing packages via our website at www.chillconnect.com (our “Website”). If you do not agree to these Terms, then you must not use our Service.
3. Changes to these terms
We reserve the right to amend these Terms from time to time and will notify you of the new version of the Terms if that happens. Your continued use of the Service and SDKs will be deemed to be acceptance of any new Terms.
4. Trial use
Where we make the Service available to you on a free trial basis your use will be subject to these Terms with the exception of the ‘Payment’ section. Unless otherwise agreed, your free trial period will be for 30 days after which you must sign up to one of our pricing packages in order to access and use certain features of the Service.
5. Our contract with you
You may register to create an Account with us online, and it is free to do so. These Terms apply to any Account not linked to a specific pricing package, with the exception of the ‘Payment’ section below, and form our contract with you (“Contract”). However, please note that you must sign up to one of our pricing packages in order to access and use certain features of the Service.
If you sign up to one of our self-service pricing packages available on our website (i.e. Indie or Startup), then our Contract is formed when you complete the sign up process and is comprised of: (i) your online sign-up form detailing your chosen package (where these Terms are accepted); and (ii) these Terms.
Extended service packages
If you require an extended service package (i.e. Studio or Enterprise), we will respond to your request with a quote for our Services and provide you with a copy of our Extended Service Agreement and these Terms. We will request you email us to confirm acceptance of the Extended Service Agreement and our Contract with you is formed when both parties sign the Extended Service Agreement.
Duration and renewal of contracts
The Contract will run on a monthly subscription basis, with the exception of the Enterprise tier, in which case the Contract will run on an annual subscription basis. For our monthly subscription Contracts, the initial subscription term is one month. Your Contract will automatically renew for successive periods of one month after the initial subscription term, unless you cancel the Contract before the end of this period (or before the end of the current renewal period). For annual subscription Contracts, the initial subscription term is one year. Your Contract will automatically renew for successive periods of one year, unless you cancel the Contract before the end of the initial subscription term (or before the end of the current renewal period).
Upgrading your pricing package
You can upgrade the package of your Contract at any time by contacting us. You can also upgrade from an Indie pricing package to a Startup pricing package through your user account options. We will apply any change in price to your Account.
Our rights to suspend or terminate the Service are covered below. However you can choose to stop the Service at any time, either by cancelling your Contract through your user account options or by contacting us, in which case your Contract will expire at the end of the initial subscription term or current renewal period (as applicable). Please note that we shall be entitled to payment of all fees due, and shall not be obliged to refund any fees paid, up until expiry of the Contract but no further fees will be charged beyond this point.
We shall be entitled to terminate the Contract at any time if you are in material breach of the Contract (e.g. fail to pay fees) and either you fail to remedy the breach within the timescale we request or the breach is not capable of being remedied. We shall also be entitled to terminate the Contract if you become insolvent. Where we terminate the Contract due to your breach or insolvency we shall not be obliged to refund any fees you may have paid us. You shall likewise be entitled to terminate the Contract at any time if we become insolvent or if we are in material breach of the Contract (provided that you have given us 30 days written notice of the material breach and we have not remedied such breach in that timescale).
