These General Terms and the Service Order(s) (together, the Agreement) form a contract between you and Pyn. This Agreement governs your subscription to, and use of, Pyn’s website and/or other related applications or services including but not limited to translation, analytics and individual and organizational level feedback (together, the Services).
As the Customer, you agree to this Agreement by signing a document that references this Agreement (and you expressly agree and consent to using electronic signatures to execute this Agreement or associated documents), by agreeing to these terms electronically, or by using the Services, whichever occurs first. If you are an organization, the individual who agrees to this Agreement on your behalf must have the authority to bind you to this Agreement, and both you and such individual represent that to be the case.
1.1 PYN SERVICES
During the Term, we will provide you with access to, and use of, the Services ordered by you as described in your Service Order(s). You may order additional services at any time by contacting our Customer Success team. We will invoice you for any additional services you order after the start of the Term at the time those additional Services are ordered.
1.2 CHANGES TO SERVICES
We continually change and improve our Services. Pyn may alter the Services at any time without prior notice. We will endeavor to provide you with prior notice if we make a change to the Services resulting in an overall material decrease in functionality of the Services. If we do make a change that results in a material decrease in functionality, you may terminate your Subscription under clause 8.4.
1.3 SUSPENSION OF SERVICES
We may limit or suspend the Services from time to time at our discretion (for example, to perform scheduled maintenance or in the event of a security emergency). If Pyn limits or suspends the Services, we will endeavor to give you reasonable advance notice so that you can plan around it. However, there may be some situations, such as security emergencies, where it may not be practicable for us to give you advance notice. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to narrow the scope and duration of the suspension or limitation as is needed to resolve the issue that prompted such action.
We may suspend your access to or use of the Services following thirty (30) days’ written notice if Customer is in material breach of this Agreement or any Service Order (including but not limited to Customer’s failure to pay Pyn the fees).
1.4 THIRD PARTY SERVICES
If you use any third party service with the Services (for example, BambooHR, Slack or Workday integrations or a web browser), you acknowledge that third party service may access or use the Customer Data. By using any such third-party service with the Services, you represent and warrant that you have all licenses, rights and permissions to do so. Pyn will not be responsible for any act or omission of the third party, including such third party’s use of Customer Data. Pyn does not warrant or support any such third party service, and you should contact that third party for any issues arising from your use of the third party service.
2 Fees and Payment
2.1 FEES FOR SERVICES
Pyn Services are billed on a subscription basis (Subscription) and you will be billed in advance on a recurring, periodic basis (called a Billing Cycle). The Billing Cycle for your Subscription is outlined in the Service Order.
You agree to pay Pyn any fees for each Service you purchase or use, in accordance with the pricing and payment terms presented to you for those Services in the Service Order. Except as indicated in this Agreement or required by law, fees paid by you are not refundable.
2.2 PRICE CHANGES AND USER INCREASES
Pyn may change its fees for Services at any time. Except where you exceed the User limit indicated in a Service Order, any changes to fees will apply from the start of your next Subscription Term.
If your use of the Services during a Billing Cycle exceeds the User limit indicated in the Service Order, we may charge you for the additional Users on a pro rata basis for the remainder of that Billing Cycle.
2.3 AUTOMATIC RENEWAL
Your Subscription for any Services will automatically renew at the end of each Subscription Term unless you cancel the automatic renewal of that Service by providing us with written notice during the current Subscription Term for that Service.
To avoid doubt, automatic renewal does not guarantee that the price for Services paid during the previous Subscription Term will remain the same for the next Subscription Term.
2.4 PAYMENT METHODS
You authorize us to charge for fees using the payment method indicated in the Service Order. Unless otherwise agreed, payments for invoices are due 30 days after the invoice date. If you elect to pay by credit card, debit card, or any other billing method that supports automatic recurring payments, we will initially attempt to charge you using that billing method when payment is due, and payments will be considered overdue if payment is not received within 30 days of that due date. If Pyn is required to initiate legal action due to non-payment of fees, Customer shall bear all costs resulting from the collection of such fees. You agree to keep your billing and billing contact information current and accurate.
Overdue payments may incur interest at the rate of 1.5% per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less) on the amount overdue, from the date that the relevant payment was due until that payment has been received. You will be responsible for all reasonable expenses (including lawyers’ fees) incurred by Pyn in collecting such overdue amounts, except where:
(a) the overdue amounts are due to Pyn’s billing inaccuracies; or
(b) you have sought to resolve a dispute using the dispute resolution process in clause 13.1 and that process is still active.
Unless stated otherwise in the Service Order, all fees for Services exclude sales tax, GST, VAT, or other similar taxes. Except for any income taxes payable by Pyn, you are responsible for all other taxes or duties payable under applicable law relating to the Services provided under this Agreement, including any penalties or interest. If Pyn is required to collect or pay any taxes on your behalf, we will invoice you for those taxes unless you provide us with valid evidence that no tax should be invoiced.
3 Data Protection
In the course of using the Services, you or your Users may transfer to us Customer Data containing personal data. You agree and acknowledge the use, transfer, processing, and storage of Customer Data in accordance with this Agreement, including the terms of the Data Processing Agreement at https://www.pynhq.com/dpa ("DPA") which shall apply to the extent Customer Data includes personal data.
If you or your Users are based in the European Union or the United Kingdom while using our Services, we will process your personal information as a data processor on your behalf. In this case, you will be considered to be the data controller of the personal information as defined in Article 4(7) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (GDPR) and Article 4(7) of the United Kingdom's version of the GDPR which is part of United Kingdom's law by virtue of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (UK GDPR).
Under no circumstances will any entity in the Pyn group be deemed a data controller with respect to personal data contained in Customer Data under any relevant law or regulation.
Pyn will store and process Customer Data in a manner consistent with industry security standards. Pyn has implemented technical, organizational, and administrative systems, policies, and procedures to help ensure the security, integrity, and confidentiality of Customer Data and to mitigate the risk of unauthorized access to or use of Customer Data.
3.3 DISASTER RECOVERY
Pyn will retain backup copies of Customer Data made in the ordinary course of business by Pyn, for the purpose of enabling appropriate disaster recovery practices. Despite any other term in this Agreement, Pyn will retain these backups for a period of up to 90 days from the time that each backup copy is generated. Thereafter, Customer agrees and acknowledges that Customer Data will be irretrievably deleted from backups.
