These Terms of Service (“Terms”) govern your use of the web-based programme management and collaboration platform and services (“Service”) provided by Empiraa Pty Ltd (ACN 646 967 893) (“Empiraa”, “we”, “our”, etc.). By accessing or using the Service, you agree to be bound by these Terms.
You must be at least 18 years of age to use the Service. By agreeing to these Terms, you represent and warrant to us that: (a) you and your Authorised Users (as defined below) are at least 18 years of age; (b) you have not previously been suspended or removed from the Service; and (c) your registration and use of the Service is and will be in compliance with any and all applicable laws. If you are an organisation, the individual accepting these Terms on your behalf represents and warrants that they have authority to bind you to these terms (and in this case “you” and “your” refers to that organisation).
Accounts and registration
To use the Service you must register an account. When you register an individual (single seat) account, you need to provide us with some information about yourself, such as your name, email address, payment details and other contact information. You warrant that the information you provide is accurate and that you will keep it accurate and up to date at all times. When you register an account, you will be asked to provide a password. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and you accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account. Account sharing is not permitted, nor are you permitted to transfer your account to any other person.
If you are an organisation and your register an enterprise (multi-seat) account that permits Authorised Users (as defined below), then you are also solely responsible for implementing appropriate safeguards to maintain the confidentiality of the user accounts assigned to your Authorised Users and you also accept responsibility for all activities that occur under the user accounts of your Authorised Users. Account sharing is not permitted. User accounts assigned to your Authorised Users may only be used by the nominated individuals, however you may cancel and re-assign user accounts to other individuals within your organisation from time to time.
If you believe your account, or the account of any of your Authorised Users, is no longer secure, you must immediately notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fees and billing
The Service is offered on a subscription basis. When you register an account, you will be asked to select a subscription plan, including your preferred subscription period (monthly or annual) (“Subscription Period”) and, if you are an organisation, the maximum number of individuals in your organisation authorised to use the Service via your account (“Authorised Users”), subject to the applicable prices listed on the Service (“Subscription Fees”). We may add new services for additional fees and charges, or amend fees and charges for existing services, at any time in our sole discretion provided that any price changes or changes to your subscription plan will apply no earlier than 30 days following notice to you.
By default, accounts are set to auto-renew and we may automatically charge you the applicable Subscription Fees for each Subscription Period when they become due, on a go-forward basis until the cancellation of your account. We will bill the periodic Subscription Fee to the payment method provided during account registration (or to a different payment method if you change your payment details). Your subscription plan will continue until you cancel your account or we terminate it. There are no refunds for cancellation, including for any unused time on a subscription if you cancel your account before the end of a Subscription Period.
If you require the use of a purchase order or purchase order number, you: (a) must provide the purchase order number at the time of purchase; and (b) agree that any terms and conditions on your purchase order will not apply and are null and void.
If your subscription plan permits Authorised Users, then you will need to nominate an administrator to manage your account (“Administrator”). The Administrator will be responsible for managing your account and for assigning user accounts/logins to Authorised Users. You remain responsible for all activity on the Service by your Administrator and your Authorised Users. These Terms apply to your Administrator and to your Authorised Users and any breach
Free trials and free subscription plans
We may, from time to time, offer free trials for certain paid subscription types to allow you to try our service. We reserve the right to set eligibility requirements for free trials. At the end of your free trial period, we will charge the relevant subscription fee for the next billing cycle to your nominated payment method, unless you cancel your subscription prior.
We may also offer free subscription plans from time to time. Our free subscription plans may have more limited functionality and/or no access to some features. If you have a free subscription plan then you may upgrade your account to a paid subscription plan at any time. However, you may not downgrade a paid subscription plan to a free subscription plan.
