2. USER SUBSCRIPTION

2.1 LiDARMill grants to the Customer a non-exclusive, non-transferable right to permit Authorised Users to use the Services during the Subscription Term.

2.2 LiDARMill may, at its discretion, provide the Customer with a free trial User Subscription to demonstrate the basic functions of the Services with a temporary Subscription Term. After filling in the form on the website, applicants for a free trial User Subscription will receive an account which enables Authorized Users to log in.

2.3 With this free trial User Subscription, Customers can upload their data or they can use demo data. This is offered as an introduction to the Services, therefore the amount of data which can be uploaded may be limited. The free trial User Subscription is only offered to give Customers an impression of the results of the Services. After the free trial period, all uploaded information and data will be removed.

2.4 LiDARMill decides who gets a free trial User Subscription at its sole discretion. If applicants are not approved, access to the free trial will be denied. Applicants should be organizations that have a serious interest to learn more about the Services offered.

2.5 With a free trial User Subscription, Customers cannot claim exclusive right upon the resulting data. Customers who are interested in the software can only use the results for internal purposes within business or institutions. Those who use results for external purposes with no obvious reason or for own commercial benefit are in breach with these terms and conditions and will be held liable for any damage resulting thereof.

2.6 User Subscriptions are offered with different level of Services, and with a Subscription Term that is typically monthly or annually. The Customer can upgrade from a free trial User Subscription to any User Subscription.

2.7 No refunds or prorations shall be given to Users for modification or cancellation of Subscription. 

2.8 Neither Party shall be liable for any special, indirect or consequential loss suffered by the other Party. Neither Party shall be liable to the other Party for any loss of profits, loss of business, loss of data, loss of contracts, loss of savings, loss of use or any other economic loss.

2.9 If the Customer purchases a User Subscription with a different service level than the service level of its current User Subscription, which has not expired, then the new User Subscription will be effective the next month. If its current User Subscription is a yearly User Subscription then it will be continued with the current Subscription Term, but with the price and conditions of the new User Subscription. The remaining months of the current User Subscription can be refunded, but the responsibility to initiate such refunding belongs to the User. For the avoidance of doubt, this implies that for these relevant months the difference between the current and new User Subscription will be settled between the Customer and LiDARMill.

 

3. PAYMENT

3.1 The Customer shall pay the Subscription Fees to the LiDARMill for the User Subscriptions in accordance with this clause. LiDARMill will invoice the Customer immediately after the Customer has purchased a User Subscription.

3.2 LiDARMill will issue the invoices to the Customers email address provided on the Customer subscription form or from Phoenix LiDAR account data. Depending on local jurisdiction, additional taxes, levies, or duties may be added. Monthly and yearly User Subscriptions are non-refundable.

3.3 If LiDARMill has not received payment by the due date, LiDARMill may, without liability to the Customer, (a) disable the Customer’s password, account and access to all or part of the Services and the LiDARMill shall be under no obligation to provide any or all of the Services while the invoice(s) concerned remain unpaid; and (b) interest may accrue on a daily basis on such due amounts at an annual rate equal to the statutory interest, commencing on the due date and continuing until fully paid, whether before or after judgment.

3.4 LiDARMill shall be entitled to increase the Subscription Fees, at the start of each Renewal Period with a courtesy notice to the Customer.

 

4. TERMINATION

4.1 This Agreement shall, unless otherwise terminated, commence on the Effective Date and shall continue for the initial Subscription Term and, thereafter, this Agreement shall be automatically renewed for successive periods of 1 month for a monthly User Subscription and one year for a yearly User Subscription (“Renewal period”), unless: (a) either party notifies the other party of termination, in writing, at least before the end of the initial Subscription Term or any Renewal Period, in which case this agreement shall terminate upon the expiry of the applicable initial Subscription Term or Renewal Period; or (b) otherwise terminated in accordance with the provisions of this agreement;

4.2 Without affecting any other right or remedy available to it, either party may terminate this agreement with immediate effect by giving written notice to the other party if: (a) the other party fails to pay any amount due under this agreement on the due date for payment and remains in default after being notified in writing to make such payment; (b) the other party commits a material breach of any other term of this agreement which breach is irremediable or if such breach is remediable fails to remedy that breach within 2 weeks after being notified in writing to do so; (c) the other party repeatedly breaches any of the terms of this agreement in such a manner as to reasonably justify the opinion that its conduct is inconsistent with it having the intention or ability to give effect to the terms of this agreement; (d) the other party suspends, or threatens to suspend, payment of its debts or is unable to pay its debts as they fall due or admits inability to pay its debts or is deemed unable to pay its debts. On termination of this Agreement: (a) the right to use granted under this Agreement shall terminate; (b) the Customer will make no further use of the Services; (c) LiDARMill may destroy or otherwise dispose of any of the Customer Data in its possession without liability.

The Customer shall pay all reasonable expenses incurred by LiDARMill in returning or disposing of the Customer Data; and (d) any rights, remedies, obligations or liabilities of the parties that have accrued up to the date of termination, including the right to claim damages in respect of any breach of the Agreement which existed at or before the date of termination shall not be affected or prejudiced.
