You accept every term and condition of this Agreement, and this Agreement starts from the earliest date you tick a box or click on a button (or something similar) when you are asked to confirm that you accept this Agreement during sign up to the service, or when you use Futrli (or any part of it).

5. Registering with Futrli
5.1. On registering with Futrli you will either provide us with an email address and password (the “sign-in information”) or you will authenticate through Single Sign On (“SSO”) via one of our authentication partners. You will be sent an activation email to this email address during registration and you will need to activate your account within 28 days of receiving the activation email. Failure to activate your account may lead to an inability to access any data which may have been entered into that account.
5.2. Futrli will use the Personal Data it obtains from the relevant SSO authentication partner to manage your Futrli account and shall not be responsible for loss of any data from your Futrli account or unauthorised access to your Futrli account which arises as a result of failures in the security of the relevant SSO authentication partner.
5.3. Once you have set up your Futrli account via an SSO authentication partner, you will be able to change your personal details by following the instructions available within the settings area of Futrli.
6. Setting up a Futrli account directly
6.1. The date on which you provide billing details to allow us to charge you for any paid component will become your “Billing Date” and you will be invoiced immediately and will be charged the current list price in advance. Your subscription will automatically renew on your Billing Date.
6.2. If at any time during your subscription you want to include additional Futrli components within your subscription you must pay the applicable fees for each additional Futrli component and your subscription fee will be prorated from the date access to the additional Futrli component is made available to you until your next Billing Date. If you wish to reduce access to certain Futrli components, you may do so from your next Billing Date when your fees will be calculated to take account of your reduced access to the Futrli components.
6.3. If you fail to pay any amount payable by you under this Agreement, then, without limited our rights or remedies: (i) we may charge you interest on the amount overdue from the due date of payment up to and including the date of actual payment (as well as before and after judgment), at the rate of 1.5% of the outstanding balance per month, or up to the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower; and/or (ii) we may apply shorter payment terms to any future fees. Such interest shall accrue on a daily basis and be compounded quarterly and you will pay the interest to us immediately upon demand. If at any time we charge you an incorrect price, we reserve the right to rectify our invoice and claim payment from you for the correct amount which you agree to pay. If we have overcharged you, we will reimburse you for the amount by which you have been overcharged.
6.4. We may increase the subscription fee for Futrli at any time by giving you not less than 30 days’ written notice and such an increase will take effect from your next payment date after this notice period has ended.
6.5. By using the functionality within Futrli you can invite others to register with Futrli and grant them access to your Futrli workspace. If you choose to do this, we cannot accept any liability for the actions of those you invite including, without limitation, their access to your Futrli workspace, the data contained within it and the data contained within any third party service with which your Futrli account integrates.
7. Setting up a Futrli account through a Futrli Partner
7.1. If your Futrli Partner sets up your Futrli account for you, you will be invited to join their workspace to view your organisation’s data. If you pay your Futrli Partner and not us (until such time that we, and/or your Futrli Partner, notifies you to pay us directly) for your use of some or all of the Futrli components to which you have access, your Futrli Partner will manage your access rights to these Futrli components.
7.2. If your Futrli Partner sets up your Futrli account for you and invites you to access some Futrli components, depending on your Agreement with your Futrli Partner, should you require access to other paid-for Futrli components that your Futrli Partner does not provide, you may need to pay for these yourself. In this event you will be charged by us for these components as a direct customer (as per clause 6 of this Agreement) and you will be responsible for managing who else has access to these components.
7.3. You are responsible for working with your Futrli Partner to set and manage access rights and levels of access that your Futrli Partner has over your Futrli account as agreed between you and your Futrli Partner. You acknowledge that we have no control over such access rights and therefore we accept no liability for any loss or damage or other liability that you suffer as a result of any act, omission or failure of your Futrli Partner.
8. Your rights to use Futrli and your obligations
8.1. You must only use Futrli for your internal business purposes and only to sync your own business information into Futrli, unless you are a Futrli Partner. Futrli Partners may sync their clients’ data into Futrli for the purpose of analysing and gaining insights from this data on behalf of such clients (where the client permits this) and for making the Futrli service available to them.
8.2. All rights of ownership of the information you or a Futrli Partner syncs into Futrli remain yours but your access to this information is dependent upon you complying with these terms and conditions and your applicable subscription fee being paid in full. We follow good industry practice to prevent data loss; however, you must keep copies of any information inputted into Futrli (or generated by it) as we cannot guarantee that your information will not be lost or damaged.
8.3. You cannot transfer your Futrli subscription (or your use of Futrli for demonstration and evaluation purposes or any free trial, promotion or activation code) to any other person or organisation. For example, you cannot sell it if you no longer want to use Futrli, or if you become insolvent an insolvency practitioner may not pass on your Futrli subscription (including your sign-in information) as part of your business’s assets. Further information on this is set out in clause 22.4.
8.4. You must comply with all applicable laws and legislation in respect of your use of Futrli. When sharing data via Futrli, you must ensure that the content of any data does not and will not result in any injury, damage or harm to us or any third party (including, without limitation, defamation or breach of confidentiality) and the content does not contain anything which is unlawful, obscene, indecent or immoral or promotes illegal or unlawful activities. You must not use the Futrli services to post, share or disseminate any material unrelated to the use of Futrli, including (but not limited to): offers of goods or services for sale, unsolicited commercial email, files that may damage any other person’s computing devices or software or material in violation of any law (including material that is protected by copyright or trade secrets which you do not have the right to use). When you use Futrli to communicate or share any information, you represent that you are permitted to make such communication and share such information. We are under no obligation to ensure that communications sent by users of Futrli are legitimate or that they are related only to the use of Futrli services.
8.5. You acknowledge that we are not your accountant, we do not provide accountancy services and Futrli should not be used as a substitute for professional accountancy advice.
8.6. Some features of Futrli rely on integration with third party products or services or provide access to technology, information or services not provided by us (“Additional Services”). You may purchase or subscribe to third party complementary products, software or services that integrate or work with Futrli and it is your responsibility to decide whether or not to use these Additional Services. If you choose to do so you must agree to the separate applicable terms and conditions presented to you by the third party for those Additional Services. If there is a conflict between any of the terms of this Agreement and the Additional Services terms, the Additional Services terms will apply in relation to your use of the Additional Service in question. Except where clause 20.3 applies, we are not responsible for any issue with any third-party technology, information and / or services and will not be liable for those issues. We may withdraw access to such third party technology, information or services via Futrli at any time and without notifying you.
8.7. Futrli may use insight gained from your data to introduce you to Additional Services offered by third parties with whom we partner. You acknowledge that should this happen, it in no way represents a recommendation or any form of financial advice from us. It is your responsibility to decide whether these Additional Services meet your particular needs. You acknowledge that where Additional Services include the provision of a quote, this may require us to share a limited set of your data with a third party in order for a personalised quote to be calculated and displayed in Futrli. You agree that it is your sole responsibility to ensure that the data used by any third party to provide you with any Additional Services is accurate and you acknowledge that these Additional Services are not provided to you by Futrli nor by your accounting software provider and in no way constitute a recommendation to you from them.
8.8. You acknowledge that, where relevant, the third party provider of the Additional Services may collect from you the subscription fees due for Futrli. In such circumstances, you agree to pay the applicable subscription fee (plus any VAT or applicable sales tax) directly to the third party provider via the payment method and subject to the payment terms specified during registration or which may otherwise be notified to you from time to time, in default of which the payment terms set out in this Agreement shall apply.
8.9. You agree that if you receive Futrli at a special or discounted price you will only be able to receive Futrli at that special or discounted price if your subscription fees for Futrli are paid continuously. Any delay or other failure in payment which results in a suspension, termination or other deactivation of your account may result in your subscription fee being reactivated at our then-current list price which will be higher than the special or discounted price you previously paid.
8.10. You may invite anyone else to use or benefit from Futrli and you may use Futrli with someone else’s information to provide an advisory service to them. Should they register as a user of Futrli, their use of Futrli will be subject to these terms and conditions and they will be considered by us to have rights equal to all other users of Futrli.

9.2.4. It is possible for Pro integrations used by different Futrli Platform products in the same Organisation to be paid for by different users. As a Futrli Partner you may use this capability to set up Organisations in Futrli Platform on behalf of your clients and remain flexible on which Pro integrations you pay us for and which integrations your clients themselves pay us for.
9.3. Downgrading from Pro features in Futrli Platform
9.3.1. Should you choose to downgrade from the Pro version of a Futrli Platform product to the Freemium version and you only have access to one Organisation in Futrli Platform, the downgrade will be scheduled automatically to take place on your next billing date and you will have access to the Pro features until that date. A refund will not be available.
9.3.2. Should you choose to downgrade from the Pro version of a Futrli Platform product to the Freemium version and you have access to more than one Organisation in Futrli Platform, you will be given the option to transfer the Pro features to the same product in another Organisation (potentially making it available to different users you have invited).

12. Our promises relating to Futrli
12.1. Whilst we aim to provide uninterrupted use of Futrli, unfortunately we can’t guarantee this.

You agree to provide all reasonable assistance in helping us remedy that issue.
12.8. We promise that we will use our reasonable skill and care to provide any service to you under this Agreement.

21.1. We may end this Agreement:
21.1.1. immediately if we or your Futrli Partner (if appropriate) do not receive your subscription fee or any other fees due to us under this Agreement by the relevant due date; or
21.1.2. at any time on giving you at least 30 days’ notice and if we do, we will refund to you any amounts you have paid in advance for the applicable subscription period calculated from the date of termination.
21.2. You may end this Agreement at any time by sending us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the case of the Futrli Platform, the Subscriber User must send this email. If you end this agreement, we will confirm the date that this Agreement will end. We will not give you a refund for any amounts you have paid in advance for the applicable subscription period, and you must immediately pay all amounts you owe to us (or your Futrli Partner as the case may be) by the date this Agreement ends.

21.6. No matter how this Agreement ends, the information you store in Futrli remains your information and you can access it in a format provided by Futrli before the end of this Agreement. If you (or your Futrli Partner) wish to access your information after this Agreement has ended, you agree to pay our reasonable charges for that access, but you accept that we have automated processes that periodically delete data belonging to customers with whom this Agreement has ended and therefore we may ourselves no longer have access to your information.
21.7.

21.8. Any suspension of your Futrli account will continue until such time that the breach in question has been remedied to our reasonable satisfaction and/or we have received payment from you in full. Where we suspend or terminate your use of Futrli under this clause, we may at our discretion agree to reactivate your account subject to you paying to us a reactivation fee. In accordance with clause 8.9 above, if you received Futrli at a special or discounted price your subscription fee may be reactivated at our then-current list price which will be higher than the special or discounted price you previously paid.

However, if the wording that cannot be enforced could be enforced if part of it is deleted, we will both treat the relevant part of the wording as if it is deleted.
