Emcore3D Terms of Service




Last updated: 9 April, 2019

THINGS3D LIMITED (“T3D”, “our”, “we” or “us”) provides app-development and related software constituting the Emcore3D SDK (the “Software”) provided through or in connection with our website, accessible at emcore3d.com (collectively, the “Site”). Except to the extent you and T3D have executed a separate agreement, these terms and conditions exclusively govern your access to and use of the Software and Site (collectively, the “Services”), and constitute a binding legal agreement between you and T3D (the “Terms”). These Terms are, collectively, the “Agreement.”. By accepting or agreeing to the Agreement on behalf of a company or other legal entity (a “Legal Entity”), you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that Legal Entity to the Agreement and, in such event, “you” and “your” will refer and apply to that company or other legal entity. You acknowledge and agree that, by accessing, purchasing or using the services, you are indicating that you have read, understand and agree to be bound by the agreement whether or not you have created a emcore3d account, subscribed to the emcore3d newsletter or otherwise registered with the site. If you do not agree to these terms and all applicable additional terms, then you have no right to access or use any of the services.

1 Emcore3D Account In order to use the Services, you must register for a “Emcore3D Account”. To create a Emcore3D Account, you will be required to provide certain information and you will establish a username and a password. You agree to provide accurate, current and complete information during the registration process and to update such information to keep it accurate, current and complete. T3D reserves the right to suspend or terminate your account if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, not current or incomplete. You are responsible for safeguarding your password. You agree not to disclose your password to any third party and to take sole responsibility for any activities or actions under your account, whether or not you have authorised such activities or actions. You will immediately notify T3D of any unauthorised use of your account. You may cancel your T3D Account at any time by sending an email to support@emcore3d.com. Canceling your T3D Account does not relieve you of the obligation to pay any and all remaining amounts owing for your existing Software license fees.

2 Rights to use the Emcore3D Software

2.1 User Rights. Conditioned upon your compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement and payment of all applicable license fees, T3D grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, royalty-free license to include the Software inside your software application(s) (the "Project(s)") during the Software Term over the 3 license tiers namely a) Free - whereby there will be a watermark displayed by the Software when used in the Project(s) which may not be deployed live in the Apple App Store b) App - whereby usage is restricted to a named Project(s) with no watermarks of the Software during runtime c) Company - whereby an unlimited number of Project(s) can be deployed with no watermarks of the Software during runtime as long as all Project(s) are developed and published directly by the named Company. If the named Project(s) is developed by the Company on behalf of a third party entity, this constitutes an exception to this tier and a separate App or Company tier license is required (this license is called the “Emcore3D License”). If you are a Legal Entity, you may allow affiliated entities or third party contractors who are testing, developing and operating your Project(s) on your behalf, to exercise your rights on your behalf. In all cases you remain responsible for these parties’ compliance with the terms and conditions of the Agreement or any breach thereof. All use of the Software, including any third party exercise of your rights under this paragraph, is subject to this Agreement, including any restrictions set forth below, and you may not otherwise allow third parties to use the rights granted in this Agreement.

2.2 Third Party Software. The Software incorporates Third Party Software governed by separate terms, namely FBX by Adobe for 3D animation support whose terms are located here (https://www.autodesk.com/developer-network/platform-technologies/fbx) You agree that you have reviewed and accepted those terms and that your use of the Software will be deemed acceptance thereof.

3. Your Responsibilities

3.1 Eligibility You must be at least 18 to purchase the Services. If you are under the age of 18 or whatever is the age of legal majority where you access the Services, you may purchase access to the Services only with the involvement of your legal guardian, and you represent and warrant that your legal guardian has read, understood and accepted this Agreement.

If any payment is not made on time, T3D will not deliver the licence key required to activate the Software. Payments made under the Agreement shall be made without deduction or set-off for any withholding taxes, levies, imports, duties, charges and/or fees imposed by any governmental taxing authority except as required by law. If you are compelled to make any such deduction, you will pay to T3D such additional amounts as are necessary to ensure T3D’s receipt of the full amount that T3D would have received but for the deduction. You will be responsible for, and agree to promptly pay, all taxes or duties of any kind (including but not limited to sales, use and withholding taxes) associated with any purchase or your receipt or use of the Services, except for taxes based on T3D’s net income. In the event that T3D is required to collect any tax for which you are responsible, you will pay such tax directly to T3D or its payment processor. T3D reserves the right to collect any applicable sales, use or value added tax. All sales are final and there shall be no refunds except as required by law. Further, T3D will not allow changes to your purchase after you complete it. T3D may disable all copies of the Software and/or your access to any Services you have licensed or subscribed to in the event the payment made is cancelled or cannot be collected. You acknowledge and agree that, in the case of certain Services, any estimates of fees and charges provided to you by T3D (whether based on assumed data consumption or otherwise) are solely estimates based on assumptions and that you are fully responsible for the actual fees and charges that accrue.

4.2 Billing If you purchase the Software, you will be asked to provide customary billing information, such as name, company name, billing address, credit card information, and VAT or GST number, either to T3D or its third party payment processor.
