PLEASE READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THE TERMS, DO NOT USE THE APPLICATION.
Capitalized terms that are defined in these Terms, such as “Application” or “Customer,” have the specific definitions given to them whenever they are used in these Terms.
Subscriptions; Applicability of Terms
VIDGRID provides the Application to its customers (“Customers”) pursuant to subscription agreements for a specific term. VIDGRID generally offers trial subscriptions for a limited period. At the end of the trial subscription, Customers must choose one of our paid subscription plans to continue their access to the Application. These Terms govern all trial and general subscription agreements with our Customers.
VIDGRID may enter a separate, written subscription or license agreement (a “License Agreement”) for the Application with some Customers. The individual authorized users of a Customer subject to a License Agreement with us must still accept these Terms as a condition of accessing and using the Application. To the extent these terms conflict with or differ from the terms of a License Agreement, the License Agreement shall govern.
Use of the Application constitutes acceptance of these Terms. These Terms will continue in force and effect for as long as you use the Application unless we inform you otherwise. We reserve the right to change the Terms at any time in our sole business discretion. We will make reasonable efforts to notify users of changes to the Terms via the Application interface.
Your VIDGRID Account
You must have an VIDGRID user account to use the Application (a “User Account”). You establish a User Account by completing the online registration process when first accessing the Application. In some instances, VIDGRID may set up your User Account for you pursuant to a License Agreement.
Keep your username and password confidential. You are responsible for all use of the Application happening through your User Account. If you learn of any unauthorized use of your User Account, username, or password, you should promptly contact VIDGRID.
VIDGRID currently offers Trial, Basic, Pro, and Enterprise subscription plans. A list of the functionality, support, number of authorized users, pricing and other features of these subscription plans is available via the top-level pages of the Application. We may change our subscription plans without advance notice or an update to these Terms.
Customers agree to pay annual or monthly fees for their subscription term as stated in the pricing schedule accessible on the Application. All fees are payable in advance of the applicable subscription term. All payments will be made by a Customer credit card, an ACH payment, or other form of payment acceptable to VIDGRID. All payments shall be made in U.S. Dollars.
VIDGRID may change its subscription fees in its business discretion. Any fee changes will be effective upon renewal of the Customer’s subscription. VIDGRID will make reasonable efforts to notify its Customers of fee increases 30 days or more before they take effect.
All subscription fee amounts stated on the Application exclude taxes. Customer is responsible for all sales, use, and excise taxes, and any other similar taxes, duties and charges of any kind imposed by any federal, state or local governmental or regulatory authority on any amounts payable by Customer pursuant to these Terms, other than any taxes imposed on VIDGRID’s income.
If a Customer fails to make any payment when due, then: (1) VIDGRID may charge Customer interest on the past due amount at the rate of 1.5% per month or the highest rate permitted under applicable law, whichever is lower; (2) Customer shall reimburse VIDGRID for all reasonable costs incurred by VIDGRID in collecting any late payments or interest, including attorneys’ fees, court costs and collection agency fees; and (3) VIDGRID may immediately suspend or terminate Customer’s access to and use of the Application, without advance notice to Customer.
All amounts payable to VIDGRID pursuant to these Terms shall be paid by Customer in full without any setoff, recoupment, counterclaim, deduction, debit or withholding for any reason.
