PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY, AS THEY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS. THESE TERMS CONTAIN A BINDING ARBITRATION PROVISION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER. EXCEPT WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND PACKET TIDE WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION, AND YOU HEREBY WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT OR CLASS-WIDE ARBITRATION.
These Terms apply to all visitors, users and others who wish to access or use the Services. If you disagree with any part of the Terms then you do not have permission to access the Services.
By creating an Account on our service, you agree to receive electronic communications from us and to subscribe to newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information we may send. However, you may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications from us by following the unsubscribe link or instructions provided in any email we send. However, you may continue to receive electronic communications regarding your account and/or notifications regarding these Terms.
We are constantly updating product and service offerings on the Services. We may experience delays in updating information on the Services and in our advertising on other web sites. The information found on the Services may contain errors or inaccuracies and may not be complete or current. Products or services may be mispriced, described inaccurately, or unavailable on the Services and we cannot guarantee the accuracy or completeness of any information found on the Services.
We therefore reserve the right to change or update information and to correct errors, inaccuracies, or omissions at any time without prior notice.
Some of our Services are offered for a fee, like ExpressionEngine Pro and certain Add-Ons (collectively, “Paid Services”). By using a Paid Service, you agree to pay the specified fees. Depending on the Paid Service, there may be one-time fees or recurring fees. For recurring fees, we’ll bill or charge you in the automatically-renewing interval (such as monthly or annually) you select, on a pre-pay basis until you cancel, which you can do at any time by contacting the relevant support team.
ExpressionEngine Pro is billed on a subscription basis (the “Subscription”) and is subject to the terms and conditions of the ExpressionEngine Pro License Agreement. You will be billed in advance on a recurring and periodic basis (“Billing Cycle”). Billing cycles are set either on a monthly or annual basis, depending on the type of subscription plan you select when purchasing a Subscription.
At the end of each Billing Cycle, your Subscription will automatically renew under the exact same conditions unless you cancel it or Packet Tide cancels it. You may cancel your Subscription renewal either through your online account management page or by contacting Packet Tide customer support team.
A valid payment method, including credit card, is required to process the payment for your Subscription. You shall provide Packet Tide with accurate and complete billing information including full name, address, state, zip code, telephone number, and a valid payment method information. By submitting such payment information, you automatically authorize Packet Tide to charge all Subscription fees incurred through your account to any such payment instruments.
Should automatic billing fail to occur for any reason, Packet Tide will issue an electronic invoice indicating that you must proceed manually, within a certain deadline date, with the full payment corresponding to the billing period as indicated on the invoice.
Packet Tide may, at its sole discretion, offer a Subscription with a free trial for a limited period of time (“Free Trial”).
You may be required to enter your billing information in order to sign up for the Free Trial.
If you do enter your billing information when signing up for the Free Trial, you will not be charged by Packet Tide until the Free Trial has expired. On the last day of the Free Trial period, unless you cancelled your Subscription, you will be automatically charged the applicable Subscription fees for the type of Subscription you have selected.
At any time and without notice, Packet Tide reserves the right to (i) modify the terms and conditions of the Free Trial offer, or (ii) cancel such Free Trial offer.
Packet Tide, in its sole discretion and at any time, may modify the price of Add-Ons or the Subscription fees for the ExpressionEngine Pro. Any Subscription fee change will become effective at the end of the then-current Billing Cycle.
Packet Tide will provide you with a reasonable prior notice of any change in Subscription fees to give you an opportunity to terminate your Subscription before such change becomes effective.
Your continued use of ExpressionEngine Pro after the Subscription fee change comes into effect constitutes your agreement to pay the modified Subscription fee amount.
If you wish to purchase any product or service made available through the Services (“Purchase”), you may be asked to supply certain information relevant to your Purchase including, without limitation, your credit card number, the expiration date of your credit card, your billing address, and your shipping information.
You represent and warrant that: (i) you have the legal right to use any credit card(s) or other payment method(s) in connection with any Purchase; and that (ii) the information you supply to us is true, correct and complete.
We reserve the right to refuse or cancel your order at any time for reasons including but not limited to: product or service availability, errors in the description or price of the product or service, error in your order or other reasons.
We reserve the right to refuse or cancel your order if fraud or an unauthorized or illegal transaction is suspected.
If your payment fails, Paid Services are otherwise not paid for or paid for on time (for example, if you contact your bank or credit card company to decline or reverse the charge of fees for Paid Services), or we suspect a payment is fraudulent, we may immediately cancel or revoke your access to Paid Services without notice to you.
ExpressionEngine Add-Ons and ExpressionEngine Pro (collectively “EE Add-Ons”) require a valid site license and are subject to the terms and conditions of the developer of the relevant EE Add-On. Servers on which ExpressionEngine is installed will periodically provide information to Licensor for the purpose of license validation. This information includes the site domain, ExpressionEngine version, and a list of EE Add-Ons along with their version numbers. By installing and using the Services, you consent to the transmission of this information, as described above. Unlicensed EE Add-Ons may be limited in functionality by Licensor and/or the third-party developer of the relevant EE Add-On.
To the extent permitted by law, or unless explicitly stated otherwise, all fees do not include applicable federal, provincial, state, local or other governmental sales, value-added, goods and services, harmonized or other taxes, fees, or charges (“Taxes”). You’re responsible for paying all applicable Taxes relating to your use of our Services, your payments, or your purchases. If we’re obligated to pay or collect Taxes on the fees you’ve paid or will pay, you’re responsible for those Taxes, and we may collect payment.
Except when required by law, monthly Subscription fees are non-refundable as are purchases made for Add-Ons. Annual Subscription fees are refundable on a pro-rated basis within forty-five (45) days of purchase.
