1.3 The Service is made available under different subscription packages, with different prices and service capacity, as further described here or in the applicable appendix to the Order.

The applicable Subscription Package will either run on a monthly basis (a "Monthly Subscription") or on an annual basis (an "Annual Subscription"), as specified in the Order.
2. User account

2.2 The account and login details to the account shall be maintained secure and the Customer is responsible for all activities carried out in connection with the account. Mavenoid will not be responsible for any losses suffered by the Customer in circumstances where the Customer's account is used by a third party, unless such loss is caused by Mavenoid's negligence.
3. Acceptable use of the Service
3.1 The Customer may not use the Service for any other purpose than as expressly stipulated herein. Non-permitted use of the Service includes, but is not limited to: (i) using the Service for any illegal, immoral, unlawful and/or unauthorized purposes; (ii) bypassing any measures used to prevent or restrict access to the Service; or (iii) copying, modifying, altering, adapting, making available, reverse engineering, decompiling, or disassembling any portion of the content made accessible on or through the Service or publicly display, reproduce, create derivative works from, perform, distribute, or otherwise use such content, other than as expressly permitted under these Terms or applicable law.
4. Fees and payment
4.1 The Customer shall pay a subscription fee for the Service (the "Subscription Fee") in accordance with Mavenoid's applicable price list for the relevant Subscription Package, see here or in the applicable appendix to the Order.
4.2 All fees are exclusive of value added tax (VAT) and any other applicable taxes and/or duties.
4.3 The Subscription Fee is invoiced monthly or yearly in advance, as set out in the Order, and payable within thirty (30) days from the date of the invoice.
4.4 It is the Customer's responsibility to monitor its use of the Service to ensure that the service capacity (including conversations and seat limits) is within the range for the applicable Subscription Package. If the Customer’s use of the Service exceeds the service capacity for the Subscription Package, if new features are unlocked or if the Customer chooses to upgrade its Subscription Package during an ongoing subscription period, the Customer will be charged for such excess use/capacity, or upgraded Subscription Package, in accordance with Mavenoid's then applicable price list, and the Customer agrees to pay such additional fee. If the Customer has a Monthly Subscription, such additional fees will be reflected in the following month's invoice. If the Customer has an Annual Subscription, such additional fees will occur for all relevant months, on a pro-rata basis, and will be reflected in the following annual invoice. If the Customer has an ongoing subscription and the Customer chooses to upgrade the Subscription Package, this change will take effect as per the first day of the subsequent month.
4.5 If the Customer has an ongoing subscription and chooses to downgrade the Subscription Package, this change will take effect as per the first day of the subsequent renewal term as set out in Section 13.2 below, and such changed Subscription Fee shall be reflected in the subsequent invoice (regardless of whether the next invoice comes the next month or the next year).
4.6 In the event of late payment, Mavenoid is entitled to a default interest of 0.5 % per month on any outstanding amount, or the maximum permitted by law, plus all expenses of collection. The Customer acknowledges and agrees that a delay in payment of the Subscription Fee may result in the termination of the Customer's access to, and right to use, the Service, as set out in Section 14 below.
4.7 Mavenoid reserves the right to change the Subscription Fee and to institute new charges and fees upon thirty (30) days prior notice to the Customer (which may be sent by email). If the Customer does not accept the changed Subscription Fee or any additional charge, the Customer is entitled to terminate its subscription for the Service with immediate effect. If the Customer continues to use the Service, after the changed Subscription Fee has come into effect, such use will be deemed as an acceptance by the Customer of the new Subscription Fee.
5. Additional services

The Customer may choose to order implementation services (the "Implementation Services") from Mavenoid in connection with the Order, and Mavenoid will then perform the agreed Implementation Services. In such case, Mavenoid will charge a one-time fee for the Implementation Services, in addition to the Subscription Fee.
5.2 The Customer may also request Mavenoid to provide additional implementation work or other services in relation to the Service. Such additional consultancy work will be performed by Mavenoid on a time and material basis, or if specifically agreed, at a fixed price, and will be invoiced separately in addition to the Subscription Fee.
