New Terms of Service, Effective as of December 12, 2019

What does this say in plain English?

  • You're buying a subscription to a software as a service and we are going to do our best to keep it running for you. In exchange for that service, you're going pay us.
  • The subscription renews automatically. If you want to cancel, please be sure to do so in advance of the automatic renewal.
  • Our pricing may change. This speaks to that point above about the subscription automatically renews.
  • In order for us to give you an accurate forecast, we need to use your data as effectively as possible. This means doing a bunch of fancy computer science things. As an example, our algorithms might determine that barbecue food sells more during the summer holidays and use that knowledge to improve forecasting for all customers that sell barbecue products. This does not mean sharing your data with one of your competitors or sharing a competitors data with you.
  • Sometimes we offer betas. We do our best with our beta software but there are occasionally bugs and we may have to discontinue our beta software.
  • We take privacy and data security seriously and comply with GDPR regulations.
  • We would love to tell the world how you're using Crisp but if you don't want us to, no problem. We respect your right to confidentiality.
  • This is our only Terms of Service. If you agreed to another thing (MNDA, NDA, ToS, etc.) with Crisp in the past, this is now the thing and that former thing you agreed to is not a thing anymore.

 

What does this say in lawyer talk?

1. Membership

1.1  Your Crisp membership will continue and automatically renew until terminated. To use the Crisp service you must have Internet access and a Crisp ready device and provide us with one or more Payment Methods. "Payment Method" means a current, valid, accepted method of payment, as may be updated from time to time and which may include payment through your account with a third party. You must cancel your membership before it renews in order to avoid billing of the membership fees for the next billing cycle to your Payment Method (see "Cancellation" below).

1.2  We may offer a number of membership plans, including special promotional plans or memberships offered by third parties in conjunction with the provision of their own products and services. We are not responsible for the products and services provided by such third parties. Some membership plans may have differing conditions and limitations, which will be disclosed at your sign-up or in other communications made available to you.

2. Free Trials

2.1. Your Crisp membership may start with a free trial. The duration of the free trial period of your membership will be specified during sign-up and is intended to allow new and certain former members to try the service.

2.2. Free trial eligibility is determined by Crisp at its sole discretion and we may limit eligibility or duration to prevent free trial abuse. We reserve the right to revoke the free trial and put your account on hold in the event that we determine that you are not eligible. For combinations with other offers, restrictions may apply.

2.3. We will charge the membership fee for your next billing cycle to your Payment Method at the end of the free trial period and your membership will automatically renew unless you cancel your membership prior to the end of the free trial period. To view the applicable membership price and end date of your free trial period, visit our website and click the "Account" page.

3. Billing and Cancellation

3.1. Billing Cycle. The membership fee for the Crisp service any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the service, such as taxes and possible transaction fees, will be charged to your Payment Method on the specific billing date indicated on your "Account" page. The length of your billing cycle will depend on the type of subscription that you choose when you sign-up for the service, monthly or annual. Membership fees are fully earned upon payment. In some cases your payment date may change, for example if your Payment Method has not successfully settled or if your paid membership began on a day not contained in a given month. Visit our website and click on the "Account" page to see your next payment date. We may authorize your Payment Method in anticipation of membership or service-related charges through various methods, including authorizing it up to approximately one month of service as soon as you register. In some instances, your available balance or credit limit may be reduced to reflect the authorization during your free trial period. Payment terms are net 30.

3.2. Payment Methods. To use the Crisp service you must provide one or more Payment Methods. You authorize us to charge any Payment Method associated to your account in case your primary Payment Method is declined or no longer available to us for payment of your subscription fee. You remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not cancel your account, we may suspend your access to the service until we have successfully charged a valid Payment Method. For some Payment Methods, the issuer may charge you certain fees, such as foreign transaction fees or other fees relating to the processing of your Payment Method. Check with your Payment Method service provider for details.

3.3 Updating your Payment Methods. You can update your Payment Methods by going to the "Account" page. We may also update your Payment Methods using information provided by the payment service providers. Following any update, you authorize us to continue to charge the applicable Payment Method(s).

3.4. Cancellation. You can cancel your Crisp membership at any time, and you will continue to have access to the Crisp service through the end of your billing period. To cancel, go to the "Account" page on our website and follow the instructions for cancellation. If you cancel your membership, your account will automatically close at the end of your current billing period. To see when your account will close, click "Billing details" on the "Account" page. If you signed up for Crisp using your account with a third party as a Payment Method and wish to cancel your Crisp membership, you may need to do so through that third party, for example by visiting your account with the applicable third party and turning off auto-renew, or unsubscribing from the Crisp service through that third party. You may also find billing information about your Crisp membership by visiting your account with the applicable third party.  Annual contracts may be terminated 90 days prior to contract renewal by visiting your "Account" page.  Monthly contracts can be terminated any day prior to contract renewal by visiting your "Account" page. 

3.5. Changes to the Price and Subscription Plans. We reserve the right to change our subscription plans or adjust pricing for our service or any components thereof in any manner and at any time as we may determine in our sole and absolute discretion. Except as otherwise expressly provided for in these Terms of Use, any price changes or changes to your subscription plan will take effect following notice to you.

3.6. No Refunds. Payments are nonrefundable and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods. Following any cancellation, however, you will continue to have access to the service through the end of your current billing period. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our members ("credits"). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance.

In the event that we remove content without prior notice, we will provide prompt notice to you unless prohibited by law. We terminate the accounts of repeat infringers in appropriate circumstances.

4.5. From time to time, we may offer free or discounted pricing programs covering certain usage of the Services (each, a “Special Pricing Program”). We may stop accepting new sign-ups or discontinue a Special Pricing Program at any time.

You must comply with any additional terms, restrictions, or limitations (e.g., limitations on the total amount of usage) for the Special Pricing Program as described in the offer terms for the Special Pricing Program or on the pricing page for the eligible Service(s). You may not access or use the Services in a way intended to avoid any additional terms, restrictions, or limitations (e.g., establishing multiple Crisp accounts in order to receive additional benefits under a Special Pricing Program), and we may immediately terminate your account if you do so. Any data stored or instances provided as part of a Special Pricing Program must be actively used.

4.6. If we make multiple discounts or pricing options for a Service available to you at one time, you will only be eligible to receive one discount or pricing option, and will not be entitled to cumulative discounting and pricing options.

4.7. You will ensure that all information you provide to us via the Crisp Site (for instance, information provided in connection with your registration for the Services, requests for increased usage limits, etc.) is accurate, complete and not misleading.

4.8. From time to time, we may apply upgrades, patches, bug fixes or other maintenance to the Service Offerings (“Maintenance”). We agree to use reasonable efforts to provide you with prior notice of any scheduled Maintenance (except for emergency Maintenance) and you agree to use reasonable efforts to comply with any Maintenance requirements that we notify you about.

4.9.

5. Beta Service Participation

5.1. This Section describes the additional terms and conditions under which you may access and use certain features, technologies and services made available to you by Crisp that are not yet generally available, including, but not limited to, any products, services, or features labeled “beta”, “preview”, “pre-release”, or “experimental” (each, a “Beta Service”) or access and use Service Offerings available in Crisp regions that are not generally available, including, but not limited to, any Crisp regions identified by Crisp as “beta”, “preview”, “pre-release”, or “experimental” (each, a “Beta Region”). In the event there is a conflict between the terms of this Section 1.10 and an existing Crisp Beta Test Participation Agreement between you and Crisp, the terms of the existing Crisp Beta Test Participation Agreement will take precedence.

5.2. During the term of the applicable Beta Service or Beta Region (as specified by Crisp), you may: (a) access and use the Beta Service or Service Offerings in any Beta Region solely for internal evaluation purposes; and (b) install, copy, and use any related Crisp Content that may be provided to you by Crisp in connection with the Beta Service or Service Offerings in any Beta Region (“Beta Materials”) solely as necessary to access and use the Beta Service or Service Offerings in any Beta Region in the manner permitted by this Section.

5.3. You agree not to allow access to or use of any Beta Service, Service Offerings in any Beta Region or Beta Materials by any third party other than your employees and contractors who (i) have a need to use or access the Beta Service, Service Offerings in the Beta Region or Beta Materials in connection with your internal evaluation activities, and (ii) have executed written non-disclosure agreements obligating them to protect the confidentiality of non-public information regarding the Beta Service, Beta Region and Beta Materials.

5.4. You must comply with all policies and guidelines related to any Beta Service or Beta Region as posted on the Crisp Site or otherwise made available to you, including the Privacy Policy, Acceptable Use Policy, the Service Terms, and any additional terms and conditions for a specific Beta Service or Beta Region. Crisp may add or modify restrictions, including lowering or raising any usage limits, related to access to or use of any Beta Service, Service Offerings in any Beta Region or Beta Materials at any time. If requested by Crisp, you will promptly increase or decrease your usage of the applicable Beta Service, Service Offerings in a Beta Region or Beta Materials to the levels that Crisp may specify. Service Level Agreements do not apply to Beta Services or any Services Offerings in Beta Regions.

5.5. Crisp may suspend or terminate your access to or use of any Beta Service or Service Offerings in any Beta Region at any time and for any reason. Crisp may at any time cease providing any or all of any Beta Service or any Service Offering in a Beta Region in its sole discretion and without notice. Beta Services and Services Offerings in Beta Regions also may be unavailable and/or their performance may be negatively affected by scheduled and unscheduled maintenance. Crisp will use reasonable efforts to notify you in advance of scheduled maintenance, but Crisp is unable to provide advance notice of unscheduled or emergency maintenance.

5.6. In consideration of being allowed to access and use a Beta Service or Service Offering in a Beta Region, you agree to provide Crisp with information relating to your access, use, testing, or evaluation of the Beta Service, Service Offerings in the Beta Region or any related Beta Materials, including observations or information regarding the performance, features and functionality of the Beta Service or any related Beta Materials as applicable, when and in the form reasonably requested by Crisp (“Test Observations”). Crisp will own and may use and evaluate all Test Observations for its own purposes. You will not use any Test Observations except for your internal evaluation purposes of the Beta Service or Beta Region.

5.7. Each individual Beta Service and Service Offering in a Beta Region will automatically terminate upon the release of a generally available version of the applicable Beta Service or Service Offering in a Beta Region or upon notice of termination by Crisp. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Agreement or these Services Terms, either you or Crisp may terminate your participation in a Beta Service or Service Offering in a Beta Region at any time for any reason upon notice to the other party. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Agreement, after the conclusion of your participation in a Beta Service or Service Offering in a Beta Region for any reason, (a) you will not have any further right to access or use the applicable Beta Service or Service Offering in the Beta Region and Beta Materials; (b) your Content used in the applicable Beta Service or Service Offering in the Beta Region may be deleted or inaccessible; and (c) you will immediately return or, if instructed by Crisp, destroy all Beta Materials or any other Crisp Confidential Information related to the applicable Beta Service, Service Offering in any Beta Region or Beta Materials. If Crisp releases a generally available version of a Beta Service or a Service Offering in a Beta Region, your access to and use of the generally available version will be subject to the Agreement and any separate Section of these Service Terms as may be specified for that generally available Service Offering. If any Beta Region becomes generally available, your access to and use of Service Offerings in the generally available Crisp region will be subject to the terms and conditions applicable to that Crisp region. Crisp does not guarantee that any Beta Service or Service Offering in any Beta Region will ever be made generally available, or that any generally available version will contain the same or similar functionality as the version made available by Crisp during the term of the Beta Service or Beta Region, as applicable. Crisp does not guarantee that any Beta Region will become generally available.

5.8. Beta Materials, Test Observations, Suggestions concerning a Beta Service or Beta Region, or any other information about or involving (including the existence of) any Beta Service or Beta Region are considered Crisp Confidential Information. You will not disclose (including, but not limited to, in a press release or public statement) any Beta Materials, Test Observations, Suggestions concerning a Beta Service, or any other information about or involving (including the existence of) any Beta Service, except as agreed by Crisp in writing.

5.9. ADDITIONAL WARRANTY DISCLAIMERS. WITHOUT LIMITING ANY DISCLAIMERS IN THE AGREEMENT OR THE SERVICE TERMS, THE BETA SERVICES, SERVICE OFFERINGS IN BETA REGIONS, BETA REGIONS AND BETA MATERIALS ARE NOT READY FOR GENERAL COMMERCIAL RELEASE AND MAY CONTAIN BUGS, ERRORS, DEFECTS OR HARMFUL COMPONENTS. ACCORDINGLY, AND NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY IN THE AGREEMENT OR THESE SERVICES TERMS, CRISP IS PROVIDING THE BETA SERVICES, SERVICE OFFERINGS IN BETA REGIONS AND BETA MATERIALS TO YOU “AS IS.” CRISP AND ITS AFFILIATES AND LICENSORS MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE REGARDING THE BETA SERVICES, SERVICE OFFERINGS IN BETA REGIONS, BETA REGIONS AND BETA MATERIALS, INCLUDING ANY WARRANTY THAT THE BETA SERVICES, SERVICE OFFERINGS IN BETA REGIONS, BETA REGIONS AND BETA MATERIALS WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, ERROR FREE OR FREE OF HARMFUL COMPONENTS, OR THAT ANY CONTENT, INCLUDING YOUR CONTENT, WILL BE SECURE OR NOT OTHERWISE LOST OR DAMAGED. EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT PROHIBITED BY LAW, CRISP AND ITS AFFILIATES AND LICENSORS DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR QUIET ENJOYMENT, AND ANY WARRANTIES ARISING OUT OF ANY COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE. Crisp AND ITS AFFILIATES’ AND LICENSORS’ AGGREGATE LIABILITY FOR ANY BETA SERVICES WILL BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT YOU ACTUALLY PAY US UNDER THIS AGREEMENT FOR THE BETA SERVICES THAT GAVE RISE TO THE CLAIM DURING THE 12 MONTHS PRECEDING THE CLAIM.

5.10. Because the Beta Services and Materials involve features, technologies and services that are not yet generally available, you acknowledge that any violation of this Section 5.10 could cause irreparable harm to Crisp for which monetary damages may be difficult to ascertain or an inadequate remedy. You therefore agree that Crisp will have the right, in addition to its other rights and remedies, to seek injunctive relief for any violation of this Section 5.10.

6. Benchmark

6.1. You may perform benchmarks or comparative tests or evaluations (each, a “Benchmark”) of the Service Offerings. If you perform or disclose, or direct or permit any third party to perform or disclose, any Benchmark of any of the Service Offerings, you (i) will include in any disclosure, and will disclose to us, all information necessary to replicate such Benchmark, and (ii) agree that we may perform and disclose the results of Benchmarks of your products or services, irrespective of any restrictions on Benchmarks in the terms governing your products or services.
