Terms of Service
Hi and welcome to Hiplee
These Terms of Service (“Terms”) govern your access to and use of the Hiplee website, apps, APIs, and widgets (the “Service”) of Hiplee Limited, NZ Company number 6657353 (“Hiplee”). Please read these Terms carefully – and contact us if you have any questions – as they affect your legal rights, including an agreement to resolve any disputes that may arise between us by arbitration on an individual basis instead of by class actions or jury trials.
Hiplee reserves the right to modify the Terms of Service from time to time without prior notice, effective upon posting an updated version of this Terms of Service on the Service or Site. You are responsible for regularly reviewing this Terms of Service. Continued use of the Service after any such modifications to the Terms of Service shall constitute your consent to such modifications.
1. Our Service
Hiplee helps Ecommerce merchants enjoy greater success. To do that, we provide a range of applications. To provide our Service we need to be able to identify your Ecommerce site and information about it’s products and customers.
2. You can use Hiplee
You may use Hiplee only if you can legally form a binding contract with Hiplee, and only in compliance with these Terms and all applicable laws. When you create your Hiplee account, you must provide us with accurate and complete information. You warrant that you are a human, and not a computer service or automated “bot”. Any use or access by anyone under the age of 13 is not allowed. If you’re based in the EEA, you may only use Hiplee if you are over the age at which you can provide consent to data processing under the laws of your country or if verifiable parental consent for your use of Hiplee has been provided to us. Using Hiplee may include downloading software to your computer, phone, tablet, or other device. You agree that we may automatically update that software, and these Terms will apply to any updates.
You understand that Hiplee uses third party vendors and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and other technology required to run the Service. If your bandwidth usage on the Service significantly exceeds the average bandwidth usage of the Service, as determined by Hiplee, we reserve the right to limit your bandwidth to the Service.
b. Our Licence to you
Subject to these Terms and our policies (including our Community Guidelines), we grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, and revocable license to use our Service.
3. Enjoying Hiplee
3.1. Free and Premium Service
Certain Hiplee services are provided to you free-of-charge. Other Hiplee services require payment before you can access them. The Hiplee services that may be accessed after payment are currently referred to as the “Premium Service”. The Hiplee service that does not require payment is currently referred to as the “Free Service”. You can learn more about our services by visiting our website, hiplee.ai.
From time to time, we or others on our behalf may offer trials of Premium Service for a specified period without payment or at a reduced rate (a “Trial”). Hiplee reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to determine your eligibility for a Trial, and, subject to applicable laws, to withdraw or to modify a Trial at any time without prior notice and with no liability, to the greatest extent permitted under the law.
For some trials, we may require you to provide your payment details to start the trial. At the end of such trials, we may automatically start to charge you for the applicable paid subscription on the first day following the end of the trial, on a recurring monthly basis. By providing your payment details in conjunction with the trial, you agree to this charge using such payment details. If you do not want this charge, you must cancel the applicable paid subscription through your Hiplee Admin page, by uninstalling the Premium Service or terminate your Hiplee account before the end of the trial.
If you do not want to continue to be charged on a recurring basis, you must cancel the applicable paid subscription through your Hiplee Admin page, by uninstalling the Premium Service or terminate your Hiplee account before the end of the recurring monthly period. Paid subscriptions cannot be terminated before the end of the period for which you have already paid, and except as expressly provided in these terms, Hiplee will not refund any fees that you have already paid. The limitation section sets forth additional terms regarding cancellation of your paid subscription.
4. Payments, Refunds, Upgrading / Downgrading
Hiplee may bill you directly or via a third party (e.g., Shopify).
If being billed directly, a valid credit card is required for paying accounts. A valid credit card must be added to your account via the Account > Billing page. Your credit card statement will show a payment to “Hiplee”.
There is no charge for the Free Service. The Premium Service is billed in advance every month and is non-refundable. However, Hiplee will charge your credit card a prorated amount for any upgrade or downgrade in plan level.
There will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service, upgrade/downgrade refunds or refunds for months unused with an open account.
Downgrading your Service may cause the loss of Content, features, or capacity of your Account. Hiplee does not accept any liability for such loss.
The Premium free trial will begin the day the Premium account is opened and will end when the trial period has ended.
5. Cancelling your Account
Hiplee accounts can be cancelled in the app by the user at anytime by completing the cancellation process. This will mean:
- Your account will be deactivated and can no longer be accessed;
- Your account will no longer be charged;
- All of your rights granted under these Terms will immediately come to an end; and
- All of your data and content may be deleted from our systems (on request).
We provide no guarantee that your content can be recovered once your account is cancelled. We are not liable for any loss or damage following, or as a result of, cancellation of your account, and it is your responsibility to ensure that any content or data which you require is backed-up or replicated before cancellation.
Hiplee may terminate or suspend your right to access or use the Service for any reason on appropriate notice. We may terminate or suspend your access immediately and without notice if we have a good reason, including any violation of our Community Guidelines. Upon termination, you continue to be bound by these Terms.
We care about the security of our users. While we work to protect the security of your account and content, Hiplee can’t guarantee that unauthorized third parties won’t be able to defeat our security measures. We ask that you keep your password secure. Please notify us immediately of any compromise or unauthorized use of your account.
7. Third party links, sites, and services
Hiplee contains links to third party websites, advertisers, services, special offers, and other events or activities that are not owned or controlled by Hiplee. We don’t endorse or assume any responsibility for any such third party sites, information, materials, products, or services. If you access any third party website, service, or content from Hiplee, you do so at your own risk and you agree that Hiplee has no liability arising from your use of or access to any third party website, service, or content.
