1.2 Authorized Usage, Intellectual Property Rights

EQUIMETALS Service is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) product which means that the Service is licensed on a subscription basis by the Client. Provider does not sell EQUIMETALS software to the Client, only provides the rights specified in this Terms.

  • use automatic or manual data harvesting and extraction tools or measures;
  • sell or re-sell the Service.

However, some plans enable multiple Users, each and every User must belong to the same legal entity, which is contracted and billed for the Service (parent companies and subsidiaries also excluded unless we provide written consent). Single plan authorizes only one User. Client is fully responsible for any damage caused by the violation of the Terms. Client undertakes full responsibility for the Users’, members’, employees’ and contractors’ activities relating to the Service.

Provider – unless contractual or legal regulations state otherwise – is the exclusive owner of all intellectual property rights relating to the Service (hereinafter: “Intellectual Property Rights”).

Intellectual Property Rights extend to the whole EQUIMETALS software, its parts and the Service separately as well.

1.3 Service Model

We offer several plans based on a subscription model with a set limit of usage. Your subscription will automatically renew at the end of the subscription period.

Usage limit is reset each month; once usage limit is reached you might permanently upgrade to a larger monthly limit by purchasing extra credits, otherwise Client cannot use the Service till the end of the month. You might upgrade your subscription plan (e.g. from single to team) or extend your monthly limit by subscribing add-on(s) in your profile menu at any time. If you require an add-on(s), the required add-on(s) will be automatically added to and charged for each subsequent month.

For 1 credit Client may:

  • make one search and open 3 datasheets within the results (opening a new datasheet after reaching the limit automatically deducts another credit and grants the option to open 3 more datasheets);
  • make calculations in a function group of the welding consultancy module;
  • print one datasheet.

 

Digitally exporting a datasheet accounts for 2 credits.

 

1.4 Termination, Limitation

Either Client or Provider may terminate your Service. Client may terminate the Service plan and related add-ons separately via email (customersuccess@equimetals.com), while Provider may give notice of termination via email. Termination by a Client takes effect at the end of the subscription period already paid or – in case Individual Agreement includes such condition – the end of the loyalty period, whichever is later. Provider may, in its sole and absolute discretion, terminate the contract by the end of the subscription (or loyalty) period (“termination”) or with immediate effect (“immediate termination”). In case of an immediate termination the Provider transfers back the fees paid by the Client proportionate to the residue of the subscription period.

1.5 Fees

We might offer you free period of use upon registration. When starting a paid subscription, we may offer you special initial discount period. Once this period ends, your normal subscription period starts with your general service conditions.

Subscription fee is charged in advance for the subsequent subscription period. Subscription period is measured in months (e.g. 1, 12 months). For technical and accounting reasons if you subscribe on the 29th, 30th or 31st day of a month, your first period ends on the 28th day of the month on which your first subscription period ends, and this day will be the day on which your subscription will renew in the future.

When upgrading within a service period (e.g. from single to team), due proportion of your subscription fee will be deducted from your first amount charged for the new service package period.

Provider may change the price for the Service and will communicate any price changes to you in advance. Price changes will take effect at the start of the next subscription period following the date of the price change. You accept the new price by continuing to use the Service after the price change takes effect. If you do not agree with the price changes, you have the right to reject the change by unsubscribing from the Service prior to the price change going into effect. Please therefore make sure you read any such notification of price changes carefully.

Provider might offer several languages when using Service or visiting Provider’s website. However, English is the governing and only official language in all sort of communications including – among others – all Client–Provider communications and in the Service.
