Terms for Personal Accounts
By requesting the “Personal Account” option you agree to the terms of this Agreement and the information describing the “Personal Account” on our webpage. Once you have completed the term of your plan, your plan will automatically renew, unless you cancel or upgrade before your plan ends. If you cancel your plan at any time, your account will remain active for a 30 day grace period or for the remainder of your plan if you cancel more than 30 days before its expiration, unless you elect to deactivate your account immediately. You may deactivate your account at any time.
Terms for Free Trials:
By requesting the free trial option for Small Business Accounts or Enterprise Accounts you agree to the terms of this Agreement and the information describing the applicable free trial on our webpage. Should you request a subscription plan for Small Business Accounts or Enterprise Accounts at any time, you will be subject to the applicable Sections in this Agreement governing the type of paid account you requested. You may deactivate your account at any time during your free trial. Your account, including any barcodes created by you during any free trial, may be deactivated at the end of the trial unless or until a Small Business Account plan or Enterprise Account plan is requested. For what it means to have your account deactivated, see Section entitled “Consequences of Deactivation” below.
If you requested a free trial for Enterprise Accounts, during or upon completion of your free trial you will be contacted by a ScanLife representative to discuss paid plan options.
Terms for Small Business Accounts:
By requesting a plan for Small Business Accounts, you agree to the terms of this Agreement and the information and fees on our webpage for the plan requested by you. You will be subject to fees in accordance with the plan requested by you on our webpage. The minimum required subscription period for any of the monthly plans is 6 months.
You can upgrade your plan at any time based on usage but you cannot downgrade your plan at this time. You may cancel your plan at any time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org but you will continue to be charged for your minimum subscription period. Your credit card will be billed monthly in advance for each month of your plan, and fees will accrue for each month of the plan even if you are not generating barcodes, your barcodes are not being scanned or you voluntarily deactivate your account. Once you have completed the term of your plan, your plan will automatically renew every month unless you cancel or upgrade before your plan ends. If you cancel your plan at any time, your account will remain active for a 30 day grace period or for the remainder of your plan if you cancel more than 30 days before its expiration, unless you elect to deactivate your account immediately.

You can upgrade your plan at any time based on usage but you cannot downgrade your plan at this time. You may cancel your plan at any time but will continue to be charged for the minimum term agreed to by you in any Statements of Work. Any Statements of Work agreed to by you may, depending on the nature of the services to be performed by Scanbuy, include specific terms and conditions that shall modify, amend, and supersede these ScanLife Terms and Conditions. Fees will accrue during the minimum term even if you are not generating barcodes, your barcodes are not being scanned or you voluntarily deactivate your account.

For avoidance of doubt, the following terms govern all accounts:
Representations and Acknowledgements
You hereby represent, acknowledge and agree that:
Right to Deactivate or Remove Content
Scanbuy, at its own discretion, may immediately deactivate your ScanLife account, if Scanbuy believes in its sole discretion that you have violated any of the policies listed above or this Agreement. Although Scanbuy has no obligation to monitor the content provided by you in connection with the 2D Barcodes, Scanbuy may do so and may deactivate any 2D Barcodes, or prohibit any use of ScanLife or the Services that Scanbuy believes may be (or is alleged to be) in violation of this Agreement or Applicable Laws. For what it means to have your account and barcodes deactivated, refer to Section entitled “Consequences of Deactivation” below.
Consequences of Deactivation
If your account is deactivated, either by us or by you, you will continue to have limited access to your account to view your Data. However, under this limited access you will not be able to create new barcodes or modify existing barcodes. Additionally, existing barcodes will become deactivated, which will mean that end users scanning such deactivated barcodes will see a message saying that the barcode is no longer active. Your barcodes can be reactivated up to 12 months from the time of deactivation by contacting ScanLife.
Scanbuy and its suppliers own all right, title and interest in and to ScanLife and the 2D Bar Codes.

Any dispute relating to ScanLife, the 2D Bar Codes, the Services or this Agreement that cannot be resolved by the parties will be resolved by arbitration in New York, New York, USA under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association or any other rules mutually agreeable to the parties. Any dispute involving claims asserted by both parties that are less than $100,000 in the aggregate will be resolved by a single neutral arbitrator. Any dispute involving claims asserted by both parties that in the aggregate equal or exceed $100,000, or claims that seeks injunctive or equitable relief, will be resolved by a panel of three neutral arbitrators as follows: each party will appoint an arbitrator and those two arbitrators will appoint a third arbitrator who will chair the arbitration panel. If one of the parties fails or refuses to appoint an arbitrator within 30 days after the date the other party appoints its arbitrator, that first appointed arbitrator will be the sole arbitrator. Both parties consent to the jurisdiction of that arbitrator or arbitration panel, as appropriate. All proceedings will be conducted, and all documents submitted in connection with those proceedings will be presented, in the English language. Arbitration proceedings may be consolidated with arbitration proceedings pending between other individuals or entities if the arbitration proceedings arise out of the same transaction or relate to the same subject matter. Consolidation will be by order of the arbitrator(s), in any of the pending cases, or if the arbitrator(s) fail to make the order, the parties may apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for that order. The arbitrator(s) will have the authority to award any remedy or relief that a court could order or grant, including specific performance of any obligation created under this Agreement, the awarding of punitive damages, the issuance of an injunction or the imposition of costs. The award will be in writing, will be signed by the arbitrator(s) and will include findings of fact, conclusions of law and a statement regarding the disposition of each claim. The award will be final and binding on the parties. To the extent permitted by Applicable Law, judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties or the dispute. Neither party may disclose the existence, content, results or any other information about the dispute, the arbitration or the award to any person except as necessary to enforce the award or as required by Applicable Law.
• Exception. Notwithstanding the Arbitration Section above: (a) the parties will be entitled to interim or provisional relief from a court that may be necessary to protect the rights or property of that party pending the arbitration process; and (b) the parties may waive their rights under the Arbitration Section and instead elect to have any dispute arising out of or related to ScanLife, the 2D Bar Codes, the Services or this Agreement resolved by the courts of the state, province, commonwealth, or country where you are located, and in that case, the parties agree that those courts will have exclusive jurisdiction in relation to that dispute.
Scanbuy may assign any of its rights under this Agreement or delegate any of its obligations without the consent of the other party to (a) an affiliate, (b) the surviving entity in a merger, or (c) an entity that acquires substantially all of Scanbuy’s assets. Otherwise, neither party may assign any of its rights or this Agreement or delegate any of its obligations without the prior written consent of the other party. This Agreement is binding upon and enforceable by each party’s permitted successors and assignees. Any assignment in violation of this Section is null and void.
Neither party will be in default or otherwise liable for any delay in or failure of its performance under this Agreement if the delay or failure arises from any reason beyond its reasonable control, including any act of God, any acts of the common enemy, terrorism, the elements, earthquakes, floods, fires, epidemics, riots, failures or delay in transportation or communications, strikes, labor disturbances or slowdowns, or any act or failure to act by the other party or its employees, agents or contractors. The parties will promptly inform and consult with each other as to any of the above causes that in their judgment may or could be the cause of a delay in the performance of its obligations under this Agreement.
