(ii) distribute, transmit, publish or otherwise disseminate the Software, Website, Service or any portion(s) of the foregoing;

By creating a User Account at ScaleRoad you automatically start your Free Trial. You may choose to switch to any Paid Plan after the Free Trial period of 14 days ends, or at any other time. Once you choose to do so, we start to apply the respective subscription fees in accordance with the applicable Paid Plan.
Anyone who subscribes to any Paid Plan or anyone who permits or causes another person to make an order on their behalf will be liable for the payment arising from such a subscription. The same rules will apply to anyone who permits to be designated as a payer for a Paid Plan.
Paid Plans for ScaleRoad are charged either monthly or annually, as chosen upon subscription.
If a Subscriber has filled out all available seats in the account, the Subscriber can purchase additional seats. The Subscriber may not invite new Users before adding a sufficient number of seats.
All payments for the Paid Plan are due in advance by the first day of the billing period.
Prices set out in the Price Plan are subject to change at any time. Any price may change at any time and will become binding on the Subscriber upon the following conditions:
(1) ScaleRoad has sent a 7-days-period-notice;
(2) The User did not unsubscribe from the Paid Plan within such a period or by the end of the then-current Subscription Term, whichever date is later.
Such notice may be sent to a Subscriber by email to your most recently provided email address or posted on the Website or by any other manner chosen by ScaleRoad in its commercially reasonable discretion. You will be deemed to have received any such notice that is posted on the Website on the day following the date it was posted.
This Section applies to the Users who have subscribed to ScaleRoad and have continued to use ScaleRoad per any of the Previous Plans.
These Users are entitled to continue to use the Service under one of the Previous Plans and the previous version of the TOS shall remain applicable to such Users, in sections which define Previous Plan, the subscription and payment for such plans. In all other aspects, the new TOS will be applicable.
If the User decides to cancel their subscription to one of the Previous Plans or delete the User Account on ScaleRoad, from the moment of cancellation or deletion of the User Account, the User will not be able to subscribe to any of the Previous Plans anymore, but only to the available plans within the current Price Plan.
Notwithstanding the provisions above in this Section, ScaleRoad retains sole and exclusive right to cancel Previous Plans at any time under terms of the Agreement.
ScaleRoad sometimes offers a free trial period (hereinafter: "Free Trial") as explained on the Website or otherwise. During the Free Trial, Users are subject to TOS except as otherwise stated in such offers. ScaleRoad reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to determine the eligibility of a User for Free Trial. Free Trial Users may, at any time choose not to continue to a Paid Plan by cancelling before the end of the Free Trial.
ScaleRoad may require a User to have a valid payment instrument, such as a credit card or other permitted payment method before using the Free Trial. In this case, we may validate that payment method, including by requesting a temporary authorization from the financial institution issuing your payment instrument. If we determine that your payment instrument is invalid, without limiting any of our other rights, we may revoke any benefits, You may have received as part of the Free Trial.
The User will not be eligible to participate in any Free Trial for an Account in relation to which the User has already been subscribed to any Paid Plan.
Anyone who subscribes to Service or anyone who has permitted or caused another person to make a subscription on their behalf is deemed to have agreed to and accepted liability for the payments under such Paid Plan.
User must keep all the billing data complete and accurate (such as a change in billing address, credit card number or credit card expiration date) and must promptly notify ScaleRoad if payment method has changed (for example, for loss or theft) or if User becomes aware of a potential breach of security, such as the unauthorized disclosure or use of name or password. If User fails to provide any of the foregoing information, User agrees that ScaleRoad may continue charging for any use of the Service unless User has terminated Agreement as set forth herein.
All sums payable to ScaleRoad hereunder shall be paid in full, without deducting or allowing the deduction of any currency conversion, wire transfer, remittance, applicable tax or other charges related to the payment.
The payment of the Service shall be made before the commencement of the Subscription Term.
If your Paid Plan involves a recurring payment of a fee, unless you notify us before a charge that you want to cancel or do not want to automatically renew your subscription, you understand it will automatically continue and you authorize us (without notice to you, unless required by the applicable law) to collect the then-applicable fees and any taxes using any credit card we have on record for you.
You hereby authorize ScaleRoad to charge to your designated account, relating to the Service you select, and you agree to pay all such fees in accordance with the TOS.
If your default payment instrument is declined for any reason, we may deny access to the Paid Plan immediately.
The fees are exclusive of any VAT or other taxes and public duties, save where ScaleRoad has explicitly stated to the contrary. It is each User's responsibility to bear all public duties related to the purchase of the Service.
All payments are handled by a third-party payment gateway. ScaleRoad is not responsible for the processing of Client's payment and shall not be liable for any matter in connection therewith.
Paid fees are non-refundable. If the Agreement or a Paid Plan is terminated or varied during a certain billing period, the User shall not be entitled to any refund concerning that billing period. In addition, payments made for the future billing periods will not be refunded unless the Parties explicitly agree otherwise.
You understand that cessation of use of the Service will not entitle you to any refund.
As a User of ScaleRoad, you may upgrade your plan at any time.
Plans may be upgraded as follows:
(1) Upgrading to a (higher) Paid Plan: You are instantly being charged for the next Subscription Term on a pro rata basis and you obtain immediate access to all features for the (higher) plan. Your next billing date is after the expiry of the Subscription Term starting from the next day from the day payment has been made.

Please note that the number of seats can only be equal to or higher than the number of active users. Once you fill up all the seats, you need to add more seats before inviting others.
As a Subscriber, you may downgrade your Paid Plan at any time.
Plans may be downgraded as follows:
(1) Downgrading to a lower Paid Plan: After your then-current Subscription Term expires, your access to the extra features offered in the current Paid Plan will be denied, you will be charged for the lower Paid Plan, based on the Subscription Term you chose and you can continue to use the lower Paid Plan.
(2) Downgrading from annual Paid Plan to monthly Paid Plan: After your annual Subscription Term expires, you will be charged for the monthly Subscription Term and you can continue to use the same Paid Plan.

The payment made for the annual plan is being calculated on a pro rata basis. Depending on the balance, you may obtain credit on ScaleRoad or you may be charged instantly for the outstanding payment for the monthly Paid Plan. In the event you have the remaining credit, such credit will be applied against the amounts payable for the next billing term. There is no possibility to claim a refund.
(4) Reducing the number of seats You may downgrade the Paid Plan by reducing the number of seats, in which case, after your then-current billing term expires, you will be charged based on the new number of seats for the next billing period.

If you wish to cancel or downgrade your Paid Plan you may do so via your User Account. The Price Plan will be canceled/downgraded upon the expiry of the then-current billing period.
If you wish to add new users before the expiry of the then-current billing period, please contact email@example.com, and we will terminate the current Paid Plan earlier. However, please kindly note that earlier termination does not entitle you to a refund.

If the User had no obligation to make such payment during such a period, monetary damages that in the aggregate may not exceed the sum of $100 (hundred dollars).
You agree that this limitation of liability represents a reasonable allocation of risk and is a fundamental element of the basis of the bargain between ScaleRoad and you. You understand that the Website, Service and Software would not be provided without such limitations.
Some countries do not allow the limitation of certain damages, so some or all of this limitation of liability may not apply to you and you may have additional rights. Nevertheless, if any portion of these sections is held to be invalid under the applicable law, the invalidity of such portion shall not affect the validity of the remaining portions of the applicable sections.
Section 15 does not exclude mandatory liability for:
(a) Wilful breach by ScaleRoad of any of its obligations;
(b) Death or personal injury caused by a defective item produced by ScaleRoad.
Neither Party shall be liable for breaching its obligations due to a circumstance they reasonably could not have foreseen and which is beyond their control, such as, e.g., a force of nature, an act of a legislative or an executive authority, war, civil unrest, act of terror, strike, non-trivial cyber attack, failure of a third-party hosting, Internet failure or any other circumstance qualifying as force majeure under the applicable law — to the extent that the respective circumstance prevented or hindered the Party's performance. For the avoidance of doubt, the provisions of this section:
(a) are not intended to derogate from, or limit the application of, any statutory limitation or exclusion of liability;
(b) shall not be construed to limit the amount of, or excuse User from paying, any fee or other consideration owed hereunder.

Placing links to third-party websites on the Website does not in any way imply that ScaleRoad recommends or approves services or products offered through such websites.
This Agreement and any matter or dispute arising out of or related to the subject matter of the Agreement shall be governed, construed, and enforced in accordance with the Laws of the State of Delaware, without regard to its conflict of laws rules. Specifically excluded from application to this Agreement is that law known as the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods.
Mindful of the high cost of arbitration, you and ScaleRoad agree to the following dispute resolution procedure: in the event of any controversy, claim, action or dispute arising out of or related to: (i) the Website; (ii) this Agreement; (iii) the Service; (iv) the breach, enforcement, interpretation, or validity of this Agreement; or (v) any other dispute between you and ScaleRoad ( "Dispute"), the Party asserting the Dispute shall first try in good faith to settle such Dispute by providing written notice to the other Party (by first-class or registered mail) describing the facts and circumstances (including any relevant documentation) of the Dispute and allowing the receiving Party 30 days in which to respond to or settle the Dispute ("Mandatory negotiations").
Notice shall be sent:
(2) if to you at: your last-used address in your account information or the address of the registered seat of the company (for an Enterprise).
If no such address exists, or if the delivery to such address is unsuccessful, the notice shall be sent to the email address connected to that User's Account.
Both you and ScaleRoad agree that this dispute resolution procedure is a condition precedent that must be satisfied before initiating any arbitration or filing any claim against the other Party.
Failing to resolve the dispute as described in previous paragraphs of this Section, any controversy or claims arising out of or relating to this Agreement, or the breach thereof, shall be finally settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The seat of arbitration shall be in San Wilmington, DE.
If the above agreement, with respect to arbitration, proves to be void or unenforceable, all disputes to which it was intended to apply shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the competent court in the State of Delaware, the USA. In such a case, the Mandatory negotiations clause remains applicable as a precondition to initiating court resolution of the dispute.
YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND SCALEROAD ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY.
This clause shall survive termination of the Agreement.
Notwithstanding the provisions above, ScaleRoad may, at its absolute discretion, assert and seek the protection of its Intellectual Property Rights and rights concerning confidential information or data processing anywhere in the world.
Except where prohibited by law, as a condition of using the Software and/or Service, you agree that any and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of or connected with the Software and/or Service, shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action.
Any arbitration under these Terms of Service will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class/representative/collective actions are not permitted. THE PARTIES AGREE THAT A PARTY MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER PARTY ONLY IN EACH INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PUTATIVE CLASS, COLLECTIVE AND/ OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, SUCH AS IN THE FORM OF A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION AGAINST THE OTHER. Further, unless both you and SCALEROAD agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
This Agreement (as amended from time to time) including any linked documents or documents that are expressly included in the Agreement constitutes the entire Agreement between the Parties relating to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior agreements and understandings between the Parties with respect to that subject matter.
