Availability of the Framework Services

Framework reserves the right to modify, suspend access to or discontinue the Framework Services, either temporarily or permanently, either with or without notice to you.  Framework may prevent or restrict your access to the Framework Services if you do not comply with any part of these Terms or any applicable laws.

License Agreement

Framework grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable and revocable license (the “License”) to access and use the Framework Services. You may only use the Framework Services on a device that you control. The terms of this License will also govern any upgrades provided by Framework that replace and/or supplement the original Framework Services, unless such upgrade is accompanied by a separate license, in which case the terms of that license will govern.

However, your right to use the Framework Services does not include any of the following, which is explicitly prohibited when using the Framework Services:

Modifying or otherwise making any derivative uses of the Framework Services or any portion thereof;
Using any data mining, robots or similar data gathering or extraction methods, downloading (other than page caching) of any portion of the Framework Services or any information contained therein;
Attempting to access areas/features of the Framework Services that you are not authorized to access;
Any activity that will compromise the security of the Framework Services;
Reverse engineering or access to the Framework Services in order to build a competitive product or service;
Using the Framework Services in any manner that could damage, disable, overburden or impair the functioning of the Framework Services in any manner; and/or
Using the Framework Services other than for its intended purposes or in any way that infringes any of the terms and conditions of this agreement.
By using or accessing the Framework Services you agree, represent and warrant not to do any of this. In case of non-compliance, we may terminate your use of the Framework Services.

Age Requirements/ Permission by Parent or Guardian

You must be at least 13 years old to use the Framework Services.  If you are under 18, you represent that you have your parent or guardian’s permission to use the Framework Services. Please have them read this Agreement with you.  If you are a parent or legal guardian of a user under the age of 18, by allowing your child to use the Framework Services, you are subject to the terms of this Agreement and responsible for your child’s activity on the Framework Services.

Subscriptions Terms

You will be able to access the basic Framework Services, which includes the portion of the Framework App that is available to all users for no charge (the “Basic Subscription”).  In addition, Framework offers Premium content, which is sometimes offered free to users for a limited period of time in Framework’s sole discretion.  You will also be able to access Premium content by purchasing Framework’s Premium Subscription on terms that are offered to you within the Framework App.  Special Premium Subscription rates may be offered from time to time, but such offers are not guaranteed and are subject to change at any time.

Annual Premium Subscriptions

Premium Subscriptions are offered on an annual basis.  The subscription prices are based on local currency and are specific to each country in which the Framework Services are available.  There may be variations in prices offered among the App Store and Google Play, and Framework is not responsible for any discrepancy.  Taxes may also be added to the subscription amounts by the App Store and Google Play depending on local requirements, and Framework is not involved in or responsible for such collection.

Payment Terms

Payments will be charged on a pre-pay basis on the day you sign up for a Premium Subscription and will cover the use of that service monthly or annually as indicated.  All payments for Premium Subscriptions will be made by Apple’s or Google’s in-app purchase process or a third party payment gateway.  You acknowledge and agree that Framework does not own or control these third-party payment processors and will not be held liable for any claims, demands, causes of action, debts, liabilities, damages, costs, or expenses, including costs and reasonable attorney’s fees, arising out of or in relation to your use of the same.

The Premium Subscription will be charged annually on the date in which you initially sign up.

Framework may change the Premium Subscription rates at any time. If so, we will give you reasonable notice of any such pricing changes by alerting you to the new prices within the Framework App, notifying you by email and/or text message.  If you do not wish to pay the new rates, you can cancel your Premium Subscription prior to such rate increase and your subscription will revert to a Basic Subscription.

Subscription Cancellation, Refunds and Subscription Restoration

You can cancel a Premium Subscription at any time through the App Store or Google Play subscription management settings.  Premium Subscriptions that have not been cancelled prior to 24 hours before the end of the subscription billing cycle will automatically renew, and you will be charged for the new subscription billing cycle on a pre-pay basis.  Any cancellation will take effect on the day following the last day of your Premium Subscription period.

Premium Subscriptions are generally non-refundable and are subject to the refund policies of the App Store and Google Play.  This means Framework cannot grant refunds and you will have to contact the App Store or Google Play support if you wish to pursue any type of refund.

Additional Terms for Internet Subscriptions No Refunds

Due to the digital nature of the Framework App, all Premium Subscriptions purchased on the internet (including at www.useframework.com and/or any related domains) are strictly non-refundable unless a trial period is offered (“Trial Offer”) and is expressly stated on your subscription confirmation.  If you cancel during the period stated in the Trial Offer, your Premium Subscription will be cancelled and you will not be charged.  You may cancel your Premium Subscription to the Framework Services at any time, and you will continue to have Premium access to the Framework Services throughout the remainder of your Premium Subscription term.

When purchasing a Premium Subscription through Framework, you are authorizing Framework to charge your chosen payment method each agreed period for the amount of the fee agreed, each period until your Premium Subscription is cancelled.

Framework does not provide refunds or credits for any partially used Premium Subscription for any reason, including your dissatisfaction with the Framework Services.  You hereby acknowledge that by creating an account with Framework and providing payment for your Premium Subscription, you have begun using the Framework Services and Framework has begun its contractual performance.  As such, you voluntarily waive any right of withdrawal provided by article 16(m) of the European Consumer Rights Directive (CRD) or any similar consumer protection law provision in your territory.

Miscellaneous

Framework reserves the right to update these Terms from time to time by making a revised version available to you on the Framework Services. Your continued use of the Framework Services following any changes will mean that you accept such changes. It is your responsibility to check these Terms from time to time to verify such changes.  Framework may similarly revise our Privacy policy.

You shall have no right to vary these Terms without Framework’s express prior written agreement.

Framework may assign, novate or otherwise transfer any of its rights or obligations under these Terms to a purchaser of all or substantially all of our assets or business involved in the performance of these Terms, by giving you written notice including notice on the Framework Services. You shall not assign, novate or transfer any of your rights or obligations under these Terms without Framework’s prior written consent.

No one other than a party to these Terms has any right to enforce them under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 or otherwise.

If any provision or part-provision of these Terms is held or made invalid, illegal or unenforceable by a court or legislative instrument, it shall be deemed modified to the minimum extent necessary to make it valid, legal and enforceable. If such modification is not possible, the relevant provision or part-provision shall be deemed deleted. Any modification to or deletion of a provision or part-provision under this clause shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the rest of these Terms.

Your use of the Framework Services and any dispute arising out of such use is subject to the laws of England and Wales, and the English courts will have jurisdiction in any such matters.
