Hello Retail ApS (“we”, “our” or “us”) operates the Hello Retail website, app and platform (collectively, the “Platform”) that make it easy for people to share and view wish lists so that no gift ever has to be returned again.
By clicking the “I Agree” button below, you accept the provisions of this Terms of Service Agreement (the “Agreement”). Upon your acceptance of the Agreement, you will be assigned an Hello Retail account. If you are entering into this Agreement on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind such entity to this Agreement, in which case the terms “you” or “your” shall refer to such entity. If you do not have such authority, or if you do not agree with this Agreement, you must not accept this Agreement and may not use the Services.
We may modify this Agreement from time to time and such modification shall be effective upon posting information hereof on the Platform. You will be deemed to have agreed to any such modifications by your further use of the Services after any such modification is posted. It is therefore important that you review this Agreement regularly to ensure you are updated as to any changes. If you do not agree with the modifications, please discontinue use of the Services immediately.
Currently, we offer two categories of services (“Services”), including (i) a basic version free of charge, and (ii) a version subject to a fee. Depending on your subscription, you may change from one category of Services to another by providing 30 consecutive days’ notice and contingent upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions specific to the new category of Services, hereunder payment terms as described in this Agreement and in your order confirmation.
We may at any time and without notice remove, modify or make changes to the Services made available to you. Further, we may offer additional features and possibly at additional costs in addition to the Services described on the Platform. The use of any such additional features when offered will be subject to this Agreement, and you will be deemed to have agreed to this if you start using such additional features.
We will publish information on the Platform about any planned features for future releases (designated “upcoming features” or similar). Such upcoming features may at any time be modified or relinquished at our sole discretion.
The exact scope of the Services is described on the Platform and/or in your order confirmation.
Generally, you will be authorized to add the Hello Retail button (“Hello Retail Button”) to your website. For as long as you maintain the Hello Retail Button on your site, your customers will have the ability to add any of your products to their wish lists on the Platform so that those people with whom those wish lists are shared can easily be directed to your website in order to purchase the products.
In addition, when you add the Hello Retail Button on your site, your products will be included in the database of products that may be suggested to users of our Platform who are searching for products to add to their wish lists. The visibility, promotion etc. of your products on the Platform depends on which category of Services you choose.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing herein shall be construed as guaranteeing that your products will be suggested to users. In addition, you agree that certain products may not be capable of being suggested based on the formatting or file types of the underlying files or other issues, and that we can refuse to add a product to, or delete a product from, our database, at our sole discretion, including in the event a product is unilaterally by us is considered offensive or faulty. Finally, you agree that we shall in no circumstances be liable for any inaccurate communication of Your Content (as defined in clause III(A) below) on the Platform, including your prices.
II. PAYMENT TERMS
If you have subscribed for a category of Services which is subject to a fee, payment shall be made as specified in your order confirmation. You acknowledge and agree that our Services are offered on a subscription model with automatic renewal at the end of each subscription period (“Renewal Date”) and therefore subject to recurring payments (if subject to a fee). Your subscription will continue to be renewed automatically with a term equal to the original term unless you terminate the Agreement prior to the Renewal Date.
If this Agreement is terminated or another category of Services is chosen during a subscription period, you will not receive any refund for any unused portion of the current subscription period. Further, in the event that we remove, modify or make changes to the Services, the applicable fee, if any, will not be adjusted, unless the value of the Services is materially reduced.
The applicable prices for any type of subscription are posted on the Platform and specified in your order confirmation. Prices are subject to changes with 30 days prior notice in the event that the number of your customers either increase or decline significantly.
Prices in general, including but not limited to periodic index adjustments, may be modified from time to time and such modification shall be effective as from the next Renewal Date after the date where such modification was posted on the Platform.
You will be deemed to have agreed to any such modifications by your further use of the Services after the next Renewal Date.
