Terms of Service
Last Updated: January 15th, 2021
Please read these Terms of Service (“Terms”) carefully before taking the Service in to use, which provides you with access to latest Varjo software and content that you may use with your Varjo device or with other compatible devices (“Service”). If you disagree with any part of these Terms, you may not access and must discontinue using the Service.
By accessing or otherwise using the Service or accessing any software, demos or other content or material that is made available through the Service (“Content”), you are entering into a binding contract with Varjo Technologies Oy (“Varjo”, “us”, “we”, or “our”).
Any purchase of Varjo’s hardware products are subject to separate terms and conditions of sale made available to you at the time of the purchase.
Where the Service includes software, the software is licensed by us or by the relevant licensor/owner subject to the Varjo End-User License Agreement or any other license terms included or provided with the software (“License Terms”).
You represent and warrant that you contract with us under these Terms exclusively in the course of a business and not as a consumer. You further represent and warrant that any information provided by you is current and accurate. You must agree to these Terms on behalf of your employer or other legal entity (“Customer”). You represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind the Customer to these Terms. If you do not have the requisite authority, you may not accept the Terms or use the Service.
Use of the Service requires account registration. When you register, you will create a user account with a username and a password, which shall meet any requirements set forth by Varjo during the account creation process, including strength of the password. You must provide us with correct information as required during the registration process and keep the information up to date. You must protect your username and password against misuse and keep them personal. You must promptly notify us about any unauthorized use. You agree that you are personally responsible for the security and integrity of your password, any use of or access to your user account, and for all communication and activity in connection with the Service.
Use of the Service
You and Customer shall not sell, rent or give away your right to use the Service, or create a user account (i) by using a false identity or false information, (ii) on behalf of someone other than yourself or the entity you represent or (iii) that is not authorized by the entity you represent.
You and Customer may not use any technological or other means (such as bugs or glitches in the Service, or third party tools or software) to use the Service in a way that interferes with or disrupts the Service. You and Customer may not use the Service for fraudulent or abusive purposes or attempt to decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble, modify or hack any Content or any part of the Service or its application programming interfaces, or to defeat or overcome any of the encryption technologies or security measures or data transmitted, processed or stored by the Service or circumvent technological measures designed to control access to, or elements of, the Service.
While some parts of the Service may be accessed free-of-charge, some parts of the Service require payment before you can access them (“Subscription Fee(s)”). To access said functionalities the Customer is required to have an active subscription to the relevant functionalities (“Subscription”).
Subject to due payment of the relevant Subscription Fees and compliance with these Terms, Varjo grants to Customer a non-exclusive, non- transferable and limited right to enter and use the Service and allocate its users the access rights to the Service (“Users”) solely for the purpose it is intended for during the Subscription Period. Customer may not use any part of the Service for any purpose other than the permitted use of the Service. The Customer will be fully responsible and liable to Varjo for any third parties that are given access to the Service.
The Subscription entitles the Customer to use the Service for the number of Users and functionalities specified for each subscription type. If the Customer needs additional users or functionality, then the Customer may purchase additional Subscription, users or functionality at the then current rates for such users and functionalities, after which the Subscription will be upgraded.
A Subscription is purchased for a subscription period chosen at the time of purchase (“Subscription Period”). The minimum Subscription Period is one (1) year unless otherwise agreed between you and Varjo (“Minimum Subscription Period”). Your Subscription Period begins at the date of purchase, except where there is a specified start date for the Subscription communicated to you by Varjo. You will be charged, in one lump sum, the rate stated at the time of purchase, plus applicable taxes. Unless otherwise agreed, your Subscription will automatically renew on your annual or other agreed renewal date until you cancel. You may cancel the Subscription after the Minimum Subscription Period by providing Varjo written notice of your cancellation at least one (1) month prior to the end of the Subscription Period. The cancellation will take effect the day after the last day of the then current Subscription Period.
Unless otherwise agreed, we or our resellers (as applicable) will automatically charge you the then-current rate for your plan, plus applicable taxes (such as VAT or GST if the rate does not include it), upon renewal until you cancel. Varjo reserves the right to modify, terminate or otherwise amend the Service plans and prices at any time and will communicate any price changes to you in advance and, if applicable, the means how to accept those changes. Price changes will take effect at the start of the next Subscription Period following the date of the price change. To the extent permitted by applicable law, you accept the new price by continuing to use the Service after the price change takes effect. If you do not agree with a price change, you have the right to reject the change by cancelling the Service prior to the price change coming into effect.
You authorize us to store your payment method(s) and to automatically charge your payment method(s) every renewal date until you cancel. If your primary payment method fails, you authorize us to charge any other payment method in your account. If you have not provided us a backup payment method(s) and you fail to provide payment, or if all payment methods in your account fail, we may suspend your access to the Service. You can edit your payment information anytime in your account page.
For European Economic Area customers, your bank may require you to authenticate your initial purchase using a password, a one-time code sent to your mobile number, biometric recognition or other authorized means. When you authenticate, you also authorize us to charge your payment method for your additional purchases without providing us further payment information or other instructions (i.e., we will initiate future payments independently). Such additional purchases may occur when we automatically charge your payment method in connection with a recurring Subscription Period or when you add or change services within the Service.
Varjo does not provide refunds or credits for any partial Subscription Period(s).
Varjo retains the right to appoint payment service providers to receive payment of fees on behalf of us.
Varjo may terminate or suspend access to the Service immediately, without prior notice or liability, if you breach these Terms or fail to make any payments hereunder. In case of termination, you must immediately delete, destroy, or return at your own cost, any Content made available to you in connection with the Service, all backup copies, and all related material. In case of termination or suspension of Service, Varjo will not refund any amounts that you have already paid.
Any provisions of these Terms which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, intellectual property rights provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity, confidentiality, limitations of liability, and governing law and dispute resolution.
