Introduction

The Terms serve as a binding agreement between the Users and Ligalio. The Terms must be carefully read by the Users before they use the Software, which is to be understood as a confirmation that the User agrees to the Terms.

Importantly, the Software itself only serves as a self-help tool and must be used by the Users at their own risk. Consequently, Ligalio undertakes absolutely no responsibility of any kind for the outcome that the use of the Software may produce.

Questions and/or concerns in relation to the Terms may be directed to the e-mail address info@ligalio.com or in the live chat.

About Ligalio

Ligalio Software is a software as a service (SaaS) platform and operates on cloud-based software so that Users can easily access it via the internet without any need for installation.

The Software is meant only for business Users and is not intended for consumers – it is exclusively a business-to-business (B2B) product.

Ligalio is not a law firm and does not provide legal services of any kind.

Ligalio provides no warranty or undertaking and makes no representation of any kind that the Software will achieve any intended results, be compatible or work with any other software, systems or services, operate without interruption, meet any performance or reliability standards or be error-free or that any errors or defects can or will be corrected.

Without limiting the foregoing, Ligalio does not make any representation or warranty of any kind, express or implied: (i) as to the operation or availability of the Website, or the information included thereon; (ii) that the Website will be uninterrupted or error-free; or (iii) as to the accuracy, reliability, or recentness of any information or content provided through the Website.

Subscription

The Software is available only as a paid service. Users are billed in advance.

At the end of each subscription period, the subscription automatically renews unless the User has cancelled it.

The subscription can be cancelled either through the Account section of the Website or by contacting Ligalio directly. After cancellation, the Software will be accessible until the end of the period for which the User subscribed.

User Account

The person registering an Account on behalf of a legal entity warrants that she/he has the legal capacity to enter into these Terms on the behalf of the represented legal entity and use the Software. For the sake of clarity, since each Account is personal, the User is also obliged to ensure that only one natural person may use each individual Account.

When a User creates an Account, only true, accurate, complete, and current information must be provided. Each Account may only be used to access the Software during one (1) concurrent login session. The User agrees to immediately notify Ligalio of any unauthorized use, or suspected unauthorized use of the Account or any other breach of security.

The User is responsible for keeping such information updated and complete. Failure to do so constitutes a breach of the Terms, which may result in immediate termination of the account of the User on the Software.

The User agrees to be entirely responsible for any and all access or use of the Software under the Account and to be held liable for all actions and activities conducted under the designated Account.

The User is responsible for the Users' personal passwords and warrants to treat them as sensitive and confidential information. Ligalio encourages the use of personal passwords with sufficient password strength and the frequent change of personal passwords to prevent unauthorized access.

The User agrees not to disclose the User password to any third party. The User must notify Ligalio immediately upon becoming aware of any breach of security or unauthorized use of the Account.

The User may not use as a username the name of another person or entity or that is not lawfully available for use, a name or trademark that is subject to any rights of another person or entity other than the User without appropriate authorization, or a name that is otherwise offensive, vulgar or obscene.

Ligalio reserves the right to terminate any Account(s) if such activities occur which constitute or may constitute a violation of these Terms or of any applicable local or international laws, rules or regulations.

Payment

The yearly subscription gives the User access to an Account where the privacy policy(-ies) may be updated as many times as necessary.

The subscription fee of EUR 99/year + taxes must be paid in advance for the whole subscription period (12 months). The User is responsible for any taxes and for all other charges (for example, currency exchange settlements). The price of EUR 99/year stated for the Software excludes all taxes and VAT charges.

All subscription fees paid are non-refundable.

When a User completes the online payment form, funds are deducted from the User's credit or debit card in EUR currency. All payments are debited to Ligalio. Because transactions are processed by external banking sites, there may be a delay of up to 3 days in updating the User's payment in Ligalio records.

The User may incur additional costs from violating the Terms. The User will be charged for any unauthorized use of the Software, being equal to the fees which Ligalio would have charged on the date when the breach occurred.

Ligalio will notify the User in advance, either through the Software itself or the email address the User most recently provided to Ligalio, if the price for the Software changes. The change in pricing will not affect the already purchased subscriptions and will only apply to Software subscriptions purchased or renewed after the price change comes into force.

The User must be authorized to use the payment method that is provided to Ligalio upon the creation of a billing account. The User authorizes Ligalio to apply a charge for the Software using the provided payment method and for any paid feature of the Software that the User chooses to sign up for or use while the Terms are in force.

The User must keep all billing information current. The User can access and modify the billing information in the Account of the Website.

The User may cancel the use of the Software at any time, also before the end of the period. In such an event, the Account will be available for the period for which the User has subscribed. After the subscription period, the User will not be able to update and create privacy policies. Ligalio will maintain an Account for 6 months after the termination of the subscription, after which the Account will be permanently deleted. Ligalio will keep the Content provided by the User for 3 years and 3 months after the User has created or updated a privacy policy last time.

Unless otherwise provided in these Terms, Ligalio may vary the applicable fees in each year of the subscription.

Important note: the online payment can only be made if: (1) the payee is at least 18 years old; (2) the payee has appropriate authority to make an online payment for the Software; (3) the credit or debit card used in connection with the Software is issued in the name of the payee or the payee is authorized to use the credit or debit card; (4) the payee pays the credit or debit card issuer all charges incurred in relation to the use of the Software; and (5) the information supplied by the payee is true and correct.

Payment Confirmation

By using online credit or debit card facilities, you accept and consent to your personal data being provided to the service provider for sole purpose of offering and administering the online payment. At your written request, Ligalio may do invoicing to the e-mail address given by the User.

If payment was successful, you will receive a confirmation notice of your completed payment.

If payment was unsuccessful, you will be advised that your payment has failed. Ligalio team will not be advised why a payment has failed; therefore, you should contact your credit or debit card provider for details.

Important security note: never transmit credit or debit card information by e-mail.

Notwithstanding any damages that the User might incur, the entire liability of Ligalio shall be limited to the amount of the subscription fee for a period not exceeding 12 (twelve) months.

Some countries do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, which means that some of the above limitations may not apply. In these countries, each party's liability will be limited to the greatest extent permitted by law.

Data Protection and Confidentiality

Ligalio will treat all User data, including personal data, as private and confidential, even when the User no longer uses the Software. Ligalio will not disclose and use any confidential and personal information except for the purpose of providing the Software, when instructed by the User himself, where Ligalio needs to protect its rights, or where Ligalio is required to do so by law, or by virtue of applicable regulatory requirements.

Ligalio and the User agrees not to provide personal data to each other unless the performance of the Software requires the use of such personal data.
