If you are using the Services on behalf of an organization, you are agreeing to these Terms for that organization and promising that you have the authority to bind that organization to these terms. In that case, “you” and “your” will refer to that organization.
You may use the Services only in compliance with these Terms. You may use the Services only if you have the power to form a contract with Kiwibill and are not barred under any applicable laws from doing so. The Services may continue to change over time as we refine and add more features. We may stop, suspend, or modify the Services at any time without prior notice to you. We may also remove any content from our Services at our discretion.

We may need your permission to do things you ask us to do with your data, for example, storing your files. This includes design choices we make to technically administer our Services, for example, how we redundantly backup data to keep it safe. You give us the permissions we need to do those things solely to provide the Services. This permission also extends to trusted third parties we work with to provide the Services, for example Amazon, which provides our storage space (again, only to provide the Services).
You are solely responsible the content of your data. For example, it’s your responsibility to ensure that you have the rights or permission needed to comply with these Terms.

The Services may contain links to third-party websites or resources. Kiwibill does not endorse and is not responsible or liable for their availability, accuracy, the related content, products, or services. You are solely responsible for your use of any such websites or resources. For example, here's a link to Google. What you google at Google is your own business. Neither of us hereby owns Google.
Though we’d much rather you stay, you can stop using our Services any time. We reserve the right to suspend or end the Services at any time, with or without cause, and with or without notice. For example, we may suspend or terminate your use if you are not complying with these Terms, or use the Services in any way that would cause us legal liability or disrupt others’ use of the Services. If we suspend or terminate your use, we will try to let you know in advance and help you retrieve data, though there may be some cases (for example, repeatedly or flagrantly violating these Terms, a court order, or danger to other users) where we may suspend immediately. We reserve the right to terminate unpaid user accounts that are inactive for a continuous period of 60days. In the event of such termination, all data associated with such user account will be deleted. We will provide you prior notice of such termination and option to back-up your data. The data deletion policy may be implemented with respect to any or all of the Services.
We accept credit cards and will automatically charge your credit card depending on the subcription. If any fee is not paid in a timely manner, or we are unable to process your transaction using the credit card information provided, we reserve the right to revoke access to our Kiwibill service. If you do not bring your Kiwibill balance current within fifteen (15) days after we provide you with notification that your account is in arrears, we reserve the right to use our discretion to delete your account and backups.
Your Account will continue in effect unless and until you cancel your Account or we terminate it. You must cancel your Account before it renews each month in order to avoid billing of the next month's fees to your credit card. Kiwibill will bill the monthly fees associated with your Account plus any applicable tax to the credit card you provide to us during registration (or to a different credit card if you change your account information).
Kiwibill Accounts are prepaid and are non-refundable. Kiwibill DOES NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR ANY PARTIAL MONTHS. You may cancel your Account at anytime, and cancellation will be effective immediately. If you wish to cancel your Account you may do so via your "My Account" page.

Restrictions on Use
In addition to all other terms and conditions of this Agreement, you shall not: (i) transfer the Services or otherwise make it available to any third party; (ii) provide any service based on the Services without prior written permission; (iii) use the third party links to sites without agreeing to their website terms & conditions; (iv) post links to third party sites or use their logo, company name, etc. without their prior written permission; (v) publish any personal or confidential information belonging to any person or entity without obtaining consent from such person or entity; (vi) use the Services in any manner that could damage, disable, overburden, impair or harm any server, network, computer system, resource of Kiwibill; (vii) violate any applicable local, state, national or international law; and (viii) create a false identity to mislead any person as to the identity or origin of any communication.
Kiwibill does not charge extra costs when the service is used reasonably. We’ll adjust these values when there is reasonable cause. Kiwibill wants to ensure and maintain an optimal user experience. That’s why we monitor Kiwibill's technical usage and work according to a Fair Use Policy. This Fair Use Policy has been created to prevent improper use of the servoce, so we can guarantee an excellent user experience. The Fair Use Policy for Kiwibill comprises number of Invoices, Expenses, Contacts and Line Items, attachment storage, the amount of data traffic, and the number of emails sent.
To prevent a negative effect of excessive network traffic on your user experience or that of others, we monitor the traffic. We compare your use to the average use of all our customers. With normal use you don’t have to worry about the network bandwidth available to you. If we detect a situation that could lead to a decrease in service, Kiwibill will contact you to discuss the situation. In some situations, we can intervene by limiting the available bandwidth.
Amount of data storage
Within your Kiwibill environment you can store files and attach them to Invoices and Expenses. These files can be PDF files, Word documents, Excel documents, photos, or other data files. To make sure that there is enough storage for everyone, we’ve limited the amount of data you can save with kiwibill to 512MB. Additional storage can be provided at additional cost.
You can always request the actual size of your data storage within Kiwibill. If we detect that your organization structurally saves more data than the mentioned Fair Use value, we’ll contact you to discuss the situation. It’s possible to expand your storage in blocks of 512(MB). The costs for this are €5 per block per month. Storage can be expanded up to 500GB. At that point we’ll contact you to discuss alternative storage solutions.
Number of sent emails
To prevent spam, we use worldwide blacklists among other things. To guarantee smooth email traffic from Kiwibill for you and our other customers, we monitor the mails sent from the service to ensure we don’t end up on one of those lists. This could happen when an
excessive number of emails are sent from Kiwibill, for example. For this, Kiwibill maintains very broad margins based on the average use of our customers. With normal use, you won’t notice a thing. When we detect abnormal values that could negatively impact the service, we’ll limit the number of emails you can send. Before we do this, we’ll always contact you first to discuss possible solutions
Kiwibill is Available “AS-IS”
Though we want to provide a great service, there are certain things about the service we can’t promise. For example, THE SERVICES AND SOFTWARE ARE PROVIDED “AS IS”, AT YOUR OWN RISK, WITHOUT EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF ANY KIND. WE ALSO DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. (Again - sorry about the legal shouting). Kiwibill will have no responsibility for any harm to your website, loss or corruption of data, or other harm that results from your access to or use of the Services or Software. Some states do not allow the types of disclaimers in this paragraph, so they may not apply to you.
Subscription to Beta Service
We may offer certain Services as closed or open beta services ("Beta Service" or “Beta Services”) for the purpose of testing and evaluation. You agree that we have the sole authority and discretion to determine the period of time for testing and evaluation of Beta Services. We will be the sole judge of the success of such testing and the decision, if any, to offer the Beta Services as commercial services. You will be under no obligation to acquire a subscription to use any paid Service as a result of your subscription to any Beta Service. We reserve the right to fully or partially discontinue, at any time and from time to time, temporarily or permanently, any of the Beta Services with or without notice to you.
