Cloud Engine Pricing
Cloud Engine service provided by VisionAppster is charged per one thousand (1000) API requests. In this purpose API request means every call that the application or other software makes to VisionAppster's Cloud Engine server. When the User uploads its Component to its Cloud account, VisionAppster will test the Component with a photo set to know the stress that the Component puts the Cloud Engine server under. After that VisionAppster will give the price for the thousand (1000) API requests. If the Component in question does not have a cropping feature in it, the User shall accept a floating price model for the usage of Cloud Engine. In that case the price will be based on the last thousand (1000) requests made for the Cloud Engine server.
To be able to use the Cloud Engine service, the User shall top up its Cloud Balance and set a notification threshold in EUR for the Cloud Balance. VisionAppster will notify the User when the Cloud Balance reaches the threshold. If the Cloud Balance runs out, the Cloud Engine service stops from working.
Payments & Taxes
Services and Features available in VisionAppster Platform may be free of charge or subject to separate fee. Possible fees are set forth on the service specified site and in this User Manual. VisionAppster may increase, modify or add new fees and charges for any of the services and/or Features from time to time by informing of such changes in the VisionAppster Cloud with a period of notice of at least thirty (30) days. User’s use of the specific Feature of VisionAppster Platform after the effective date of such change shall automatically mean that User has accepted the change.
User shall be liable to pay any purchase which it has performed in the VisionAppster Cloud and commits to comply with any terms of payment provided by VisionAppster and/or third-party payment processor. User understands and agrees that any non-compliance with this obligation may lead to deactivating of User’s access to his/her account and for the use of VisionAppster Platform. Any purchases are non-refundable and final, unless otherwise required by applicable law.
As regards certain services or Features, the fees and charges are only estimates based on assumptions. As regards such estimates, User shall be fully responsible for the accruing actual fees and charges.
User will be asked to provide customary billing information such as name, contact information, Paypal account information, VAT or other indirect tax number and other relevant information as required by VisionAppster or third-party payment processor, which may process the payments via VisionAppster Cloud. User understands and agrees that he/she may be subject to additional terms and conditions provided by such third-party payment processor.
User represents and warrants that it is authorized user of the card associated with billing information provided by him/her. User authorizes VisionAppster or third-party payment processor to charge its credit card or otherwise process the payment. User shall be liable to pay any purchases it has made in the Store with given instructions.
User shall be liable and agrees to pay any and all applicable taxes and duties.
VisionAppster will collect from the User the applicable taxes that VisionAppster is obliged by applicable legislation. At the payment moment, the User will be shown how much tax does the total price include (if any).
Any payments made via VisionAppster Cloud shall be made without deduction or set-off for any withholding taxes, levies, imports, duties, charges and/or fees imposed by any governmental tax authority, unless otherwise required by applicable law. Should the User be liable to make any such deduction, User undertakes to pay VisionAppster and VisionAppster is entitled to charge such additional amounts as are necessary to ensure VisionAppster’s receipt of the full amount that VisionAppster would have received without the deduction. VisionAppster shall be entitled to receive full information, including but not limited to any needed certification or documentation needed for the tax authorities. User shall be liable to refund VisionAppster for any damage or loss accrued due to User’s failure to comply with any of its obligations related to payment of taxes.
Payment processing fee
All payments made on VisionAppster shall include a payment processing fee (4,5%) that will be calculated based on the total transaction price of the product or service purchased (including taxes, if applicable) and added to the total price payable by the User.
Where does the User get receipts for its purchases?
Every time User makes a purchase in any of VisionAppster services, VisionAppster will send a receipt to the User's given email address. The receipt can also be found from the User's cloud account.
Purchasing Components from VisionAppster Store
When purchasing a Component from VisionAppster Store, the User has from one to three license options to choose from depending on the Seller's choice of licensing options under which the Seller has chosen to make its Component available. The possible licenses are following:
1) Per seat license;
2) Monthly subscription license; and
3) Usage based license.
All sales made at VisionAppster Store are final and non-refundable, unless otherwise required by applicable law.
User is allowed to sublicense the original Seller's Component as a part of its Integrated Component with the license options the original Seller has provided its original Component.
Per seat license
Per seat is a license that can be installed and used on one device.
Monthly subscription license
Purchasing a Monthly subscription license means that the User purchases a license to use the Component for one month. The license renews automatically, unless it is terminated by User in the User's VisionAppster Cloud account forty-eight (48) hours before the renewal of the subscription period.
Usage based license
When User purchases Usage based license on the Store, the User shall determine the amount of Cloud Balance that the User is willing to purchase. That Cloud Balance is used to pay API requests made related to the Component(s) that the User has chosen so that only the usage shall be billed. The price of the specific Component's API requests consist of the license fee determined by the Seller including the VisionAppster Cloud Engine Service fee.
To be able to use Components under the Usage based license, User must have enough Cloud Balance on its Cloud account. The purchased Cloud Balance is not allocated for a specific Component's API requests, but it can be used for multiple Components' Usage based licenses.
User can top up its Cloud Balance anytime to ensure the functionality of the Usage based licenses chosen. User shall set a notice threshold for its Cloud Balance in EUR. VisionAppster will notice the User if the Cloud Balance reaches the notice threshold set.
Validity of licenses
Generally the licenses for different Components are valid within the major version number of the purchase moment. If the Seller updates the Component so that the major version number changes, the Licensee shall purchase new license for that version or continue to use the previously purchased version.
Per seat licenses are valid permanently for the seat that the license is purchased.
Monthly subscription licenses remain in force for the duration on initial subscription period, and thereafter renew automatically, unless terminated by User in the User's VisionAppster Cloud account forty-eight (48) hours before the renewal of the subscription period.
Cloud Balance purchased for Usage based licenses remains in force for three hundred sixty-five (365) days from the purchasing date. Components that are activated under Usage based license remain in force for at least two hundred fourty (240) days after the activation.
Any purchased subscription remains in force for the duration of initial subscription period, and thereafter renews automatically, unless terminated by User in the User's VisionAppster Cloud account forty-eight (48) hours before the renewal of the subscription period.
All sales made on VisionAppster Platform are final and non-refundable, unless otherwise required by applicable law. In the event that a Licensee returns a Component and/or receives a refund, all rights granted herein and under the applicable EULA terminate and the Licensee is obliged to destroy any and all copies of the Component or accessory material under the control or possession of the Licensee.
The reason for this is that it is almost impossible to guarantee the rights of the Seller with respect to the Components licensed and returned. Terms and conditions concerning refunds on Components, that are licensed from the Store, are the third-party payment processor’s standard terms and conditions.
What if the Seller removes its Component from VisionAppster Store?
If the Seller removes a Component from the Store, such Component will be removed from the Store’s Component selection within a time period of sixty (60) days. Despite the removal, license to Component granted before removal will remain at the use of the Licensees for the purpose of being integrated as part of Integrated Component for one hundred eighty (180) days after the Component has been removed from the Store’s Component selection.
Different licenses act differently according to the nature of the licenses. The monthly subscription licenses and Usage based licenses remain in force for the time described above. Per seat licenses remain in force permanently with respect to their nature.
