9. Purchases and Subscriptions: Terms, Taxes, and Refunds
RoomSketcher offers certain enhanced features of the Services which you can purchase as a monthly or yearly subscription (the "Subscriptions"). You may also purchase additional products that are offered for sale (the "Products"). A description of features associated with Subscriptions and Products are available via the Product Sheet and regulated by "RoomSketcher General Commercial Terms and Conditions". To provide you with a smooth purchasing experience and any necessary support when you buy one or more of our products or subscriptions, we have integrated the FastSpring ecommerce solution, into relevant portions of our website, with FastSpring also operating as the merchant of record ("MoR") with regard to your purchases. When you purchase a Subscription or a Product (each, a "Transaction"), we or our MoR may ask you to supply additional information relevant to your Transaction, such as your credit card number, the expiration date of your credit card and your address(es) for billing and delivery (such information, "Payment Information"). You represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use all payment method(s) represented by any such Payment Information. The amounts due and payable by you for a Transaction through the Services will be presented to you before you place your order. If you choose to initiate a Transaction via the Services, you authorize us to provide your Payment Information to third-party service providers so we can complete your Transaction and agree (a) to pay the applicable fees and any taxes; (b) that we or our MoR may charge your credit card or third-party payment processing account, including, but not limited to, your account with the app store or distribution platform (like the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store) where the App is made available (each, an "App Provider"), for verification, pre-authorization and payment purposes; and (c) to bear any additional charges that your App Provider, bank or other financial service provider may levy on you as well as any taxes or fees that may apply to your order. For help with Transactions made via App Providers, contact the App Provider; their terms, conditions, and policies, and not ours, apply and we do not handle returns or refund requests for purchases through App Providers. For Transactions made on our websites, you will receive a confirmation email after we confirm the payment for your order. Your order is not binding until accepted and confirmed by us or our MoR. All payments made are non-refundable and non-transferable except as expressly provided in these Terms.
We reserve the right to not process or to cancel your order in certain circumstances, for example, if your credit card is declined, if we suspect the request or order is fraudulent, or in other circumstances we deem appropriate in our sole discretion. We also reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to take steps to verify your identity in connection with your order. You may need to provide additional information to verify your identity before completing your Transaction (such information is included within the definition of Payment Information). We will either not charge you or refund the charges for orders that we do not process or cancel.
Although you may terminate your subscription at any time, RoomSketcher will not refund any fees that you have already paid. Your subscription will automatically renew at the end of the subscription period, and the payment method you provided at sign-up will be automatically charged, unless you cancel your Subscription through your subscription page before the end of the current subscription period. The cancellation will take effect the day after the last day of the current subscription period. RoomSketcher may change the price for the Subscriptions, from time to time, by posting the new price on its Service. Price changes for Subscriptions will take effect at the start of the next subscription period following the date of the price change. As permitted by local law, you accept the new price by continuing to use the Service after the price change takes effect. If you do not agree with the price changes, you have the right to reject the change by unsubscribing from the Service prior to the price change going into effect. Please therefore make sure you read any such notification of price changes carefully. Additional Terms may apply.
From time to time, we may offer trials of Subscriptions for a specified period without payment or at a reduced rate (a "Trial"). We will require you to provide your payment information to start the Trial. Unless you cancel your Trial through your subscription page before the end of the Trial, we will automatically charge you for a subscription on the first day following the end of the trial, on a re-occurring monthly or yearly basis. Your Subscription will be subject to the terms set forth in this Section.
We do our best to describe every product or service offered on our Service as accurately as possible. However, we do not warrant that product specifications, pricing, or other content on the Service is complete, accurate, reliable, current, or error-free. In the event of any errors relating to the pricing or specifications, RoomSketcher shall have the right to refuse or cancel any orders in its sole discretion. If we charged your credit card or other account prior to our cancellation, we would issue a credit to your account in the amount of the charge. Additional Terms may apply. If a product or service you purchased from RoomSketcher is not as described, your sole remedy is to cancel the purchase and receive a credit for the purchase price.
RoomSketcher sells Subscriptions and Products throughout the world. The taxes that apply to the Transaction are based on your location and tax status. Thus, the prices displayed on our Services are excluding taxes. The receipt provided to you reflecting your purchase includes taxes (if applicable) which are charged based on your location and tax status.
Purchases are final and non-refundable unless your service offer or applicable law says you’re eligible for a refund. Refunds are generally not available for digital content that you have downloaded.
When you want to end a paid subscription, you could qualify for a refund. To see if you’re qualified for a refund, contact RoomSketcher Customer Support ([email protected]).
You agree to hold harmless and indemnify RoomSketcher and its subsidiaries, affiliates, directors, officers, agents, contractors, partners and employees from and against any claim, suit or action, including any liability or expense arising from all claims, losses, damages, suits, judgments, litigation costs and attorneys’ fees, of every kind and nature, arising from or in any way related to your use of the RoomSketcher Services, any Content, any User Content, any Third Party Applications, Software or Content, any Third Party Advertising and any other conduct by you in connection with the RoomSketcher Services or with other users of the RoomSketcher Services or any violation by you of this Agreement or of any law or the rights of any third party.
