TERMS AND CONDITIONS – SUBSCRIPTION AGREEMENT
Last updated: June 17th, 2021.
reMarkable AS, a company incorporated in Norway, organization number 917 352 836 MVA, (“reMarkable”) has developed and sells paper tablets for reading, writing and sketching. The tablet is connected to a software and a cloud service which allows users to automatically and securely back up their work as well as synchronize their work between different devices (such as computers, mobile phones etc.). Customer must enter into subscription agreement in order to access the tablet’s cloud service (the “Subscription Agreement”).
reMarkable’s cloud based platform “Cloud Service” enables the Customer to upload documents and data created on the tablet and synchronize their work between different devices (or equivalent service developed by reMarkable in the future which offers the Customer corresponding features and functions).
References in the Subscription Agreement to “Customer” shall mean the entity or person stated as “user” in the online login portal available at reMarkable’s website www.remarkable.com.
The Customer acknowledges to have read and understood the Subscription Agreement. The Subscription Agreement constitutes a binding agreement when the Customer has accepted the Subscription Agreement through the ordering process of the Cloud Service, subject to confirmation by reMarkable as mentioned in clause 1 below.
- DESCRIPTION OF THE SERVICE
The Cloud Service and its features are described in further detail on reMarkable’s website.
The Customer may order the Cloud Service using the ordering process on reMarkable’s website. All orders are subject to acceptance by reMarkable at its discretion.
- SUBSCRIPTION OPTIONS
A standard subscription is provided free of charge on a trial basis upon the purchase of the reMarkable tablet.
reMarkable may in the future offer a premium subscription, a cloud service with additional features.
Subscription is subject to a rolling subscription fee in addition to the price paid for the tablet. reMarkable reserves the right to change the subscription fees or applicable charges and to institute new charges and fees, upon thirty (30) days prior notice to the Customer (which may be sent by email). The Customer’s continued use of the Cloud Service after the end of the notice period of the changed subscription fee or charges or new charges or fees constitutes Customer’s consent to the new fees or the changed subscription fee or charges or new charges or fees.
WHEN CUSTOMER REGISTERS FOR A PAID PREMIUM SUBSCRIPTION, CUSTOMER EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT (A) REMARKABLE (OR OUR THIRD PARTY PAYMENT PROCESSOR) IS AUTHORIZED TO CHARGE CUSTOMER AT THE BEGINNING OF EVERY MONTH OR OTHER PERIODIC BASIS (AS SELECTED BY CUSTOMER VIA REMARKABLE`S WEBSITE) FOR CUSTOMER’S SUBSCRIPTION (IN ADDITION TO ANY APPLICABLE TAXES AND OTHER CHARGES) FOR AS LONG AS CUSTOMER’S SUBSCRIPTION CONTINUES, AND (B) CUSTOMER’S SUBSCRIPTION IS CONTINUOUS UNTIL CUSTOMER CANCELS IT OR REMARKABLE SUSPENDS OR STOPS PROVIDING ACCESS TO THE CLOUD SERVICES IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE SUBSCRIPTION AGREEMENT.
- SUBSCRIPTION LICENSE AND SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD
The Customer is granted a limited, revocable, non-exclusive and non-transferable right to use the Cloud Service in accordance with the Subscription Agreement during the Subscription Period.
The subscription period starts running from the moment the Customer creates a customer profile on reMarkable’s website and connect the reMarkable tablet to the Cloud Service.
Unless otherwise specified in the ordering process, the subscription runs until terminated by either party in accordance with clause 4 below.
- TERMINATION OF THE SUBSCRIPTION AND DUTIES UPON TERMINATION
4.1. Customer’s right to terminate
The Customer may terminate the Subscription Agreement at any time and without justification through the customer profile on reMarkable’s website.
For paid subscriptions, Customer may cancel its subscription at any time upon thirty (30) days’ prior notice by logging into Customer’s profile and following the instruction to cancel. Customer will be responsible for all charges (including applicable taxes and other charges) incurred with respect to fees processed prior to the cancellations of Customer’s paid rolling subscription. Customer will not receive a refund for any partial month or any renewal that occurs during the thirty (30) days’ notice period.
From time to time, to the extent legally permitted, reMarkable may offer free or reduced rate promotional trials of certain paid premium subscriptions for specified periods of time without payment or for a reduced promotional price. If reMarkable offers Customer a free or promotional trial, the specific terms of the free or promotional trial will be provided in the marketing materials describing the particular trial, during the online registration process when the code for the trial is entered on the reMarkable operated websites.
ONCE THE PROMOTIONAL TRIAL ENDS, CUSTOMER AUTHORIZES REMARKABLE (OR OUR THIRD PARTY PAYMENT PROCESSOR) TO BEGIN CHARGING CUSTOMER’S DESIGNATED PAYMENT METHOD ON A RECURRING BASIS FOR CUSTOMER’S SUBSCRIPTION (PLUS ANY APPLICABLE TAXES AND OTHER CHARGES) FOR AS LONG AS THE SUBSCRIPTION CONTINUES, UNLESS CUSTOMER CANCELS THE SUBSCRIPTION PRIOR TO THE END OF THE FREE OR PROMOTIONAL TRIAL OR OTHERWISE CANCELS THE SUBSCRIPTION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS CLAUSE.
4.2. reMarkable’s right to terminate
The Subscription Agreement may be terminated by reMarkable with two month’s prior notice (current + two month) without stating any reason. reMarkable may terminate the Subscription Agreement with immediate effect in the event of material breach of any of Customer's obligation under this Subscription Agreement, cf. clause 11 below.
4.3. Effects of termination
Upon termination of the Subscription Agreement, whether by reMarkable or the Customer, the Customer will lose access to the Cloud Service. The Customer must ensure to download all data that the Customer wishes to retain from the Cloud Service before the subscription period expires or the Subscription Agreement is terminated.
reMarkable provides a standard file format for such data export through the Cloud Service. If requested by the Customer after the termination of the Subscription Agreement, reMarkable may continue to store the data in the Cloud Service, pursuant to terms agreed between the parties for such storage.
- PAYMENT AND BILLING FOR SUBSCRIPTIONS
When ordering a subscription and providing a payment method that reMarkable accepts, Customer represents and warrants that Customer is authorized to use the designated payment method and that Customer permits reMarkable (or our third party payment processor) to charge Customer’s payment method for the total amount of Customer’s Subscription or other purchase (including any applicable taxes and other charges). If the payment method cannot be verified, is invalid or is otherwise not acceptable, Customer’s order or subscription may be suspended or cancelled. Customer must resolve any problem reMarkable encounters in order to proceed with Customer’s order. In the event Customer wants to change or update payment information associated with Customer’s account, Customer can do so by logging into Customer’s account profile and editing the payment information. Customer acknowledges that the amount billed may vary due to promotional offers, changes to the subscription or changes in applicable taxes or other charges, and Customer authorizes reMarkable (or our third party payment processor) to charge Customer’s payment method for the corresponding amount.
Unless otherwise stated by reMarkable, all prices are shown in U.S. dollars and applicable taxes and other charges, if any, are additional. Premium subscriptions and the Cloud Services are subject to availability and reMarkable reserves the right to impose any limits or reject part or all of an order, or discontinue offering certain subscriptions or services without prior notice, even if Customer has already placed an order.
Customer is responsible for any sales duty or other governmental taxes or fees due with respect to Customer’s purchase of a subscription or other products. reMarkable will collect applicable sales tax if it determines that reMarkable has a duty to collect sales tax. reMarkable will present any taxes that it is required to collect at checkout, but note that actual taxes charged may be adjusted from the amount shown at checkout. Several factors may cause this, such as variances between processor programs and changes in tax rates.
- TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS
Information about the platform, hardware and software requirements ("Technical Requirements") for the Cloud Service is available on reMarkable’s website.
The Technical Requirements may be updated by reMarkable without prior notice. reMarkable shall, however, notify the Customer at least 60 days in advance if reMarkable will stop supporting previously supported Technical Requirements.
Amendments to Technical Requirements shall not affect the Customer’s use of the Cloud Service, but if the Customer fails to meet the Technical Requirements, subsequent updates and extensions to the service may become unavailable to the Customer.
The Customer shall be responsible for obtaining and maintaining all hardware, software, third party services and other equipment needed for the access and use of the Cloud Service, and is responsible for all charges and expenses related thereto, including internet access. reMarkable reserves the right to cancel access to the Cloud Service in the event Customer’s failure to maintain and update own hardware or software should represent a security risk for reMarkable.
- SERVICE LEVELS AND PLANNED DOWNTIME
The Cloud Service is provided “as is” and as a standardized service to anyone who has a valid subscription. A subscription gives the Customer a right to use the Cloud Service as is at all times, and the Customer’s use is not conditional or tied to a specific version or functionality. reMarkable shall not be responsible for ensuring that the service fits the purpose for which the Customer uses the Cloud Service. reMarkable reserves the right to make improvements, add, modify or remove functionality. reMarkable may, however, not remove functionality which in reMarkable’s view is to be regarded as key features of the Cloud Service.
The Customer acknowledges that the Cloud Service will not always be completely free of errors and that the improvement of the Cloud Service is a continuous process. reMarkable may, from time to time, with or without prior notice, temporarily suspend the operation of any Cloud Services and/or the reMarkable website (in whole or in part) for repair or maintenance work or in order to update or upgrade any contents, features or functionality.
The Customer is aware that successful use of the Cloud Service is dependent on equipment and factors that the Customer itself is responsible for (such as adequate internet connection) or which is outside of reMarkable’s control. reMarkable is not liable for any discontinuance or disruption of the operation of the Cloud Service caused by a default in any third party service or by the Customer’s own circumstances which is necessary to access the service, including errors in internet connections, browsers, operating systems or other third party software. Third party software and operating system updates etc. may influence the usability of the Cloud Service, and reMarkable has no responsibility in this regard. reMarkable will however always use reasonable efforts to accommodate and develop the Cloud Service on the basis of updates etc. relating to hardware and software supported by reMarkable in accordance with the Technical Requirements specified above.
The Customer is responsible for backing up the content in the Cloud Service, and reMarkable encourages the Customer to do so in order to avoid loss of data. reMarkable shall under no circumstance be liable to the Customer for loss of data.
REMARKABLE DOES NOT WARRANT THAT ANY CONTENT YOU MAY STORE OR ACCESS THROUGH THE SERVICE WILL NOT BE SUBJECT TO DAMAGE, CORRUPTION, LOSS, OR REMOVAL, OR THAT THE SERVICE WILL BE UNINTERUPTED, FREE FROM LOSS, CORRUPTION, ATTACK, VIRUSES, INTERFERENCE, HACKING, OR OTHER SECURITY INTRUSION, AND REMARKABLE SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY CLAIMS OR LOSSES RELATING THERETO.
EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW, REMARKABLE AND ITS SUPPLIERS DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, RELABILITY, ACCURACY, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTY RIGHTS OR QUIET ENJOYMENT, AND ANY WARRANTIES ARISING OUT OF ANY COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE.
The Customer agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless reMarkable and our affiliates, independent contractors and service providers, and each of our respective directors, officers, employees and agents (collectively, “reMarkable Parties”) from and against all third-party claims, damages, costs, liabilities and expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees) caused by, arising out of or related to (a) the Customer's purchase or use of, or inability to use, the Cloud Services; (b) the Customer's violation of this Subscription Agreement or any other applicable terms, policies, warnings or instructions provided by reMarkable or a third party in relation to the Cloud Service, (c) any personal data or other data or content related to Customer or other users which Customer provides, uploads or inputs into the Cloud Service, or (d) the Customer's violation of any applicable law or any rights of any third party related to the Customer's use of the Cloud Service.
