Payments

User may learn the amounts of fees for the Services (“Fees”) in the pricing available on the MTW website here: https://cleanshot.com/pricing (“Pricing”). The Pricing is not an integral part of the Agreement. The Pricing determines plans (“Plan”), which are understood as variants determining the objective scope of the Services and their duration, selected by the User from among the options offered by MTW.

Using the Services rendered by MTW is against payment to the extent determined by the Pricing as well as the objective scope of the Plan and Subscription Term chosen by the User. A Subscription Term, in turn, is understood as the period of Service provision whose length is determined by the Plan selected by the User and for which Fees are payable. A Subscription Term expires upon the end of the day which corresponds with its name or date to the commencement day of the Subscription Term, and if there is no such day in the following month – on the last day of the relevant month. A Subscription Term may cover monthly or annual periods.

The prices presented in the Pricing are net prices.

Fees are non-returnable, save for Consumers.

MTW may amend the terms and conditions prescribed by the Pricing, what does not constitute an amendment to the Agreement within the Subscription Term in which the Pricing is amended. In the case of failure to terminate the Agreement in connection with the expiration of the Subscription Term, a new Pricing becomes binding upon the User as at the commencement of the next Subscription Term.

Subscription Fees are paid in advance according to a schedule prescribed in the Plan, throughout the entire Agreement term.

Invoices are issued in electronic form and sent to the User to his/her e-mail address.

If the User fails to pay the Fee, upon the lapse of another payment date set in the payment reminder sent to the User’s e-mail address, MTW may block the Account with the possibility to re-activate it upon settlement of the amount due. If the User fails to settle the amounts due within another period set by MTW, MTW has the right to terminate the Agreement with immediate effect and to remove the Content immediately. If the User fails to settle the amounts due for second time (or more), MTW has the right to delete the Account without the right to claim reimbursement of the paid Fees. MTW is also entitled, in the event of non-payment, to downgrade the Plan to the charge-free version of the Services and to delete any files that take up storage beyond the storage provided for such Plan.

The User may upgrade the Plan at any time within the Subscription Term. Change of the Plan takes place by purchase of the relevant Plan, whereby the foregoing provisions are applied accordingly. The Plan will be changed immediately after the payment made by the User.

The Plan may be downgraded, in the case of an annual settlement term, only with the effect for the following annual Subscription Term.

Some of the plans are subject to recursive payments. For recurrent payments, fees will be charged monthly or annually. By providing your data relating to recurrent payments, you agree to collect this fee with the use of this payment data. If you do not want to pay this fee, you must cancel your Plan on the subscription page of your Account or delete your Account from the system before the end of the Subscription Term.

The scope of provided services depends on the selected Plan and is indicated at https://cleanshot.com/pricing. Before choosing any of the Plans (Cloud Basic, Cloud Pro or others), please see https://cleanshot.com/fair-use for information on the existing limitations of this Plan. Changing of those rules does not constitute a change to the Terms of Service. MTW ensures that the changes will not be aimed at limiting the services provided, but at enabling the proper operation of the Application and equal access to it by all Users.

MTW shall have no liability for any failure or delay due to matters beyond their reasonable control. The foregoing shall not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law.

Consumers

A “Consumer” means any natural person who in agreements acts for purposes other than connected with business, economic or craft activity or freelance profession.

We respect consumer rights. A Consumer may not waive the rights granted thereto by relevant legal acts. Any agreement provisions which are less favourable to a consumer than provisions in relevant legal acts protecting consumers shall be invalid, and the respective statutory provisions shall be used instead. That is why the provisions of these Terms of Service are not intended to exclude or limit any consumer rights granted thereto under unconditionally applicable legal provisions, any possible doubts should be clarified to the advantage of a consumer. In the case of any discrepancy between the provisions of these Terms of Service with the foregoing provisions, these provisions shall prevail and be applicable.

In particular, MTW shall not apply towards consumers the provisions of these Terms of Service which exclude or considerably limit the liability towards a consumer for non-performance or improper performance of our liabilities. In the case of consumers, we shall not make provision of Services dependant on circumstances under our sole control, we shall apply neither the right to binding interpretation of the Agreement and these Terms of Service nor other provisions which would grossly infringe consumer’s interest.

Miscellaneous

Accepting this Terms of Service constitutes the entire agreement between MTW and you concerning the subject matter hereof.

If any part of this Terms is held invalid or unenforceable, that part will be construed to reflect the parties' original intent, and the remaining portions will remain in full force and effect.

Modifications and amendments

Any new features that augment or enhance the current Service, including the release of new tools and resources, shall be subject to the Terms of Service.

MTW may amend these Terms of Service due to material reasons, whether legal (amendment of generally applicable law or change of the organizational form of MTW) or technical (modernization of the Application or Services, change of the operation manner of the Application or Services).

The User will be notified on any amendment to the Terms of Service along with the reasons of such amendment via an e-mail 14 days before the new Terms of Service come into effect. During this time, the User should accept the new provisions of the Terms of Service or refuse to accept them and terminate the Agreement with immediate effect. For Users other than consumers, failure to terminate the Agreement upon that time shall be deemed acceptance of the amended Terms of Service without reservations.

Complaints

If you have any complaints or requests on our Services please contact us using email address: hello@cleanshot.com.

The complaint should contain the data necessary for its consideration, such as: User's contact details, the current version of the operating system installed on your device, as well as a detailed description and indication of the reason for the complaint.

MTW considers complaints within 14 days of receipt of the complaint.

In the event that the submitted complaint contains deficiencies that prevent its consideration, if it deems it necessary for the proper consideration of the complaint, we shall immediately contact you to supplement it, specifying the date, not shorter than 7 days and the scope of this supplement.

The consumer has the right to use extrajudicial means of dealing with complaints and redress. Detailed information on the possibility for the Consumer to use extrajudicial means of dealing with complaints and redress as well as the rules of access to these procedures are available at the offices and on the websites of poviat (municipal) consumer ombudsman, social organizations whose statutory tasks include consumer protection, voivodeship inspectorates of the Trade Inspection and at the following website http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/solving_consumer_disputes/non-judicial_redress/national-out-of-court-bodies/index_en.html.

At the address http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr there is an online platform for resolving disputes between consumers and entrepreneurs at the EU level (ODR platform). The ODR platform is an interactive and multilingual website with a one-stop shop for consumers and entrepreneurs seeking out-of-court settlement of a dispute regarding contractual obligations arising from an online sales contract or a contract for the provision of Services.

Any disputes arising between MTW and the User not being a Consumer are referred to the court with the local jurisdiction over the registered office of MTW.

Final Provisions

The User has no right to transfer the rights and obligations related to the performance of the Service, in whole or in part, to third parties without the prior written consent of the MTW otherwise null and void.

In matters not covered by these Regulations, the provisions of Polish law shall apply.

Any disputes arising in connection with or on the occasion of non-performance or improper performance of the Services, the parties undertake to settle by mutual negotiations, and in the event of failure to reach an agreement, these disputes will be submitted to the court competent for the seat of the MTW. The law applicable to the settlement of the dispute will be Polish law.
