PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY

 

 

AGREEMENT TO TERMS

 

This app offers services allowing you to create, edit, and perfect photos, create images, edit videos and share your creations through social media and email.

 

This Terms of Use (the "Agreement") is a contract you are entering into with the app author – so you should read through all of it. The app author can also make changes to this Agreement. If you are entering into this Agreement on behalf of an entity (such as your employer), you represent that you have full authority to bind such entity to this Agreement, and in such cases references to "you" and "your" shall mean that entity.

 

 

SERVICES AND CONTENT

 

  1. Your Rights. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you are given a personal license and right to access and use the applicable Services (and in the case of an App, to also install the App on your device) (collectively, the "Subscription"). This Subscription is nonexclusive, non-transferable, and non-sublicensable, and the Subscription only lasts while this Agreement remains in effect. As used herein, a "Paid Subscription" means a Subscription to any fee-based portions of the Services.

  2. Additional Rules about Content. Your use of Service Content is also subject to the Content Rules and Policy specified in Schedule A below (the "Content Rules and Policy"). 

  3. Prohibited Uses. As a condition to your Subscription, you agree not to engage in (or encourage or permit others to engage in) any of the Prohibited uses specified in Schedule B attached below (the "Prohibited Uses"). 

  4. Restricted Access. The Services are delivered electronically, and shall be deemed accepted by you upon delivery. Some modules, tools, features, or other functionality (collectively, "Features") may only be available to Paid Subscriptions. Paid Subscriptions themselves shall also be subject to whatever limitations may be specified in the corresponding Paid Subscription plan or package (such as limitation on the number of authorised users, usage volume or duration). 

  5. Changes to the Services. The author reserves the right, from time to time and in its discretion, and without prior notice, to: (a) change any Features and/or other aspects (such as the design, layout, or availability) of the Services; (b) deactivate any Features, including without limitation deactivating any free Features and offering them only as part of a Paid Subscription (and vice - 2 - versa); and (c) stop supporting (or limit compatibility with) certain devices and operating systems, in which case your access to the Services on such devices or operating systems may be impaired. Where required by applicable law, we will notify you in advance (either via email, via your Account, and/or within the Services) in the event we decide to shut down or discontinue any App, Web Service, and/or the Services as a whole. 

  6. Reservation of Rights. For the avoidance of doubt, the Services are only licensed to you, and no title in them passes to you. Any rights not expressly granted herein are hereby reserved by the author and its licensors, and you are granted no other right or license in the Services, whether by implied license, estoppel, exhaustion, operation of law, or otherwise.

 

PAYMENT

 

  1. Fees.Certain Services and Features are only offered under a Paid Subscription, and certain Service Content is only offered for payment (such as Premium Stock Content and certain other Stock Content). You agree to pay whatever fees and other charges are presented to you when you subscribe to a Paid Subscription or paid Service Content (collectively, the "Fees"). If the payment plan is on a recurring-subscription basis, you agree to pay the Fees in accordance with the applicable billing cycle ("Billing Cycle"). If you downloaded the App from the Apple Store, refunds are permissible in accordance with their refund policy; otherwise refunds are permissible in accordance with the refund policies that the author publishes. Except as stated in those policies, all Fees are non-refundable and non-cancellable. Moreover, amounts payable are exclusive of all applicable sales, use, consumption, VAT and other taxes, except for taxes based upon the author’s net income. 

  2. Payment Methods and Processing. Payments may be processed via the relevant App Marketplace, as well as any other third-party payment methods which we make available (such as via PayPal and certain supported payment cards). You must provide accurate billing information, and promptly update any changes to it (such as card numbers and expiry dates). If you are paying via credit or debit card, you represent that you are the authorised user of the card, and you authorise the author (and any third party payment processor) to collect payment from you, on a recurring basis (if applicable), and to take all other necessary billing actions. If payment is made via a third-party payment processor, you will also be subject to its terms and conditions (over which we have no control) – so carefully read those terms.
