The Terms always apply in their currently valid version.

To sign up for the Service, you need to accept the Terms, and an Account will be created for you. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of your Account.

- You must provide your legal full name, a valid email address, and any other information requested in order to complete the signup process.
- Your login may only be used by one person – a single login shared by multiple people is not permitted. You may create separate logins for as many people as your plan allows.
- You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and password. Locatify cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage from your failure to comply with this security obligation.

2.1 Governing law / Jurisdiction
The Terms shall be governed in accordance with Icelandic law.
- Subscriptions, Payment and Refund Policies
By purchasing a premium subscription service, you agree to the Locatify´s Terms of Service. Registered Users may upgrade to the Premium Subscription service for an agreed monthly or yearly fee. An Account can be upgraded to a Premium Subscription Plan for accessing premium features and publishing options such as publishing projects to Locatify SmartGuide, TeachOUT, TurfHunt or custom branded apps.
The Subscription Plans and features are listed on the Locatify website (www.locatify.com/plans-pricing/).
Duration of the Service is selected by the user when upgrading their Account. The Service is activated on the date the purchase is completed, except in the case of the Short Event service where the Service duration expires after the users´ project has been published and the Service duration has been completed.
Some parts of the Service are billed on a subscription basis (“Subscription(s)”). You will be billed in advance on a recurring and periodic basis (“Billing Cycle”). Billing cycles are set either on a monthly or annual basis, depending on the type of subscription plan you select when purchasing a Subscription Service.
By submitting such payment information, you automatically authorize Locatify to charge all Subscription fees incurred through your account to any such payment instruments.
Should automatic billing fail to occur for any reason, Locatify will issue an electronic invoice indicating that you must proceed manually, within a certain deadline date, with the full payment corresponding to the billing period as indicated on the invoice.
Locatify, in its sole discretion and at any time, may modify the Subscription fees for the Subscriptions. Any Subscription fee change will become effective at the end of the then-current Billing Cycle.
3.3 Payment information
Payments are processed using Valitor and are verified by 3DSecure. Locatify and Valitor do not store your real credit card details on our servers, but a virtual card number which enables payments.
3.4 Refund Policies
The Service is billed in advance with due day when the service period starts and is non-refundable. There will be no refunds or credits for a partial period of service, upgrade/downgrade refunds, or refunds for months unused with an open account.
If your monthly bandwidth usage exceeds the average usage of other Locatify customers, (as determined solely by Locatify) we reserve the right to examine your account and, if necessary, may require you to purchase additional bandwidth.
3.5 Creator CMS® Free Trial
Your free trial will end at the end of the specified trial period or when you decide to upgrade your Account to publish your project (s). During the free trial period, some or all of the Creator CMS features may be made available to you. At the end of the trial period, your account may be reduced to the limitations of the free trial account which can be found on the plans and pricing page. Locatify reserves the right to adjust the free trial features, duration and inclusions at anytime.
3.6 Adding users to an Account
Premium subscriptions include the ability to add multiple users to a Creator CMS publisher account. Additional user limits are specified in the subscription plans. This means users linked to the same publisher account can view and edit the project content, publish projects, and view scoreboard and reports. Each account has a specified billing user who is the user who upgraded the account. The Teacher License is a per seat model, where each user requires a subscription.
3.7 Fees and Taxes
For Icelandic purchases, VAT is applied to the sale and is reflected in the invoice and receipt. All other fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties.
3.8 Downgrading or changing subscription
For any upgrade or downgrade in plan level, your credit card that you provided will be charged the new rate when the next billing cycle begins.. Downgrading your Service may cause the loss of content, features, or capacity of your Account. Locatify does not accept any liability for such loss. If you have any concerns about this process, please contact us to discuss.
- Cancellation and Termination
Premium subscriptions can be canceled only upon the completion of your subscription contract period as set out in your contract or purchase confirmation. Once the subscription term has finished, you can cancel at any time by notifying Locatify in writing (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by cancelling your subscription via Account Settings > Subscriptions > Cancel subscription.
If you cancel the Service before the end of your subscription period, your cancellation will take effect immediately and you will be billed for the remainder of the subscription period.
Note that when you cancel your subscription, all additional users will lose access and premium features such as Premium Content templates will be removed. If you cancel or request your account to be deleted, all content will be permanently deleted from the Locatify servers.
Locatify reserves the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time. Locatify, in its sole discretion, has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse the use of the Service. Such termination of the Service will result in the deactivation or deletion of your Account or your access to your Account, and the forfeiture and relinquishment of all Content in your Account.
Registered Users can request the deletion of their account by contacting us with their registered email address at email@example.com with an explicit message asking for the account deletion. Upon termination, your right to use the Service will immediately cease.
- Changes to the Service and Prices
Locatify reserves the right to update and change the Terms from time to time without notice. Any new features that augment or enhance the current Service, including the release of new features in the system, shall be subject to the Terms.
Continued use of the Service after any such changes shall constitute your consent to such changes. You can review the most current version of the Terms at any time at www.locatify.com
Prices of all Services, including but not limited to annual subscription plan fees to the Service, are subject to change upon 30 days notice from us. Such notice will be provided by us at any time by posting the changes to the Locatify Site (Locatify.com/pricing) or the subscription plan itself.
Your continued use of the Service after the Subscription fee change comes into effect constitutes your agreement to pay the modified Subscription fee amount.
Locatify shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, price change, suspension or discontinuance of the Service.

- Software and Beta services
Some of our Services may allow you to download client software (“Software”) which may update automatically. So long as you comply with the Terms, we give you a limited, non exclusive, non transferable, revocable license to use the Software, solely to access the Services. To the extent any component of the Service may be offered to you or under an open source license, we’ll make that license available to you and the provisions of that license may expressly, in textform, override some of the Terms.
We sometimes release products and features that we’re still testing and evaluating (“Beta Services”). Beta Services are labeled “alpha,” “beta,” “preview,” “early access,” or “evaluation” (or with words or phrases with similar meanings) and may not be as reliable as Locatify´s other services. Beta Services are made available so that we can collect user feedback, and by using our Beta Services, you agree that we may contact you to collect such feedback.
Beta Services are confidential until official launch. If you use any Beta Services, you agree not to disclose any information about those Services to anyone else without our permission.
- Final provisions
Should individual clauses of the Terms be wholly or partially invalid, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining clauses of this agreement. In place of unincluded or ineffective clauses, the respective statutory provision occurs. In the absence of such legal provision or if its application leads to a result that is unbearable for the User or Locatify, Locatify and the parties concerned will agree on an effective provision that comes as close as possible to the ineffective or unincluded provision.
The headings chosen under this agreement have no particular legal significance but are merely intended to facilitate understanding and reading of the Terms.
