Special Service Terms for SketchBook (the “Service”)


Last Updated: August 6, 2014

Your access to and use of this Service is governed by these Special Service Terms and the Terms of Service (“Terms of Service”), which Terms of Service incorporate these Special Service Terms by this reference (collectively, “these Terms” herein).  

I. MEMBERSHIPS AND SUBSCRIPTIONS

A. Subscription Plans.

  • We offer one or more subscription plan(s) (each, a “Subscription Plan”) for free of charge or for a fee (e.g., “Premium Subscription”). The Subscription Plans and fees, if any, are described on the Service, and may be revised from time to time by us.
  • In addition to these Special Service Terms, if you intend to join a paid Subscription Plan you may be subject to additional terms and conditions, which are incorporated herein by this reference (each a “Paid Subscription Plan”).
  • Your Subscription Plan access to the Service is conditioned on your agreement and adherence to these Terms and, if applicable, to your fully paid membership and/or other fees (if any). Your Subscription Plan will be for the time period agreed to by you and us, and will automatically renew for indefinite successive renewal terms for the same period of time, unless terminated by you or us in accordance with these Terms. If you have a Subscription Plan, you may terminate such membership at any time for any reason (see “How to Contact Us” below).  However, all Paid Subscription Plan fees, when paid, are non-refundable, except as set forth in these Terms.
  • We may terminate, modify, revalue, or otherwise change the Site and/or any Subscription Plan features, functionality, element, fees and/or Entitlement in our sole discretion without advance notice or liability. If you are a subscriber of one of our Paid Subscription Plans and we make any such termination, modification, revaluation or other change that materially and adversely diminishes the value of your Subscription Plan in a way you don’t accept, then you can terminate your Paid Subscription Plan and we will provide you with either of the following at our sole discretion and determined as we deem reasonable (and the provision of same will be your sole and exclusive remedy for such changes): (i) a pro rata refund of your previously paid but unused Subscription Plan fee(s); or (ii) an online credit for future redemption of comparable value corresponding to the value of the diminished features.

B. Payments.

  • You agree to pay for any Paid Subscription Plan on time via your account through a third party payment gateway such as PayPal, payment processor such as Mac App Store, or a payment service provider such as BlueSnap (each a “Payment Processor”), and you authorize the Payment Processor to charge your credit card, debit card or other designated account in advance of Paid Subscription Plan activation or renewal, for the fee(s) specified by us for your Paid Subscription Plan, regardless of whether or not you actually access or use the Service. Payment terms are subject to the terms of sale and other terms and conditions of the Payment Processor or Autodesk as applicable. You agree to pay all costs incurred by us and the Payment Processor with respect to collection of any past due amount, including legal and collection fees and costs.
  • Unless otherwise specified by the Payment Processor, all fees are quoted and payable in United States Dollars. You are also responsible for paying all taxes applicable to your Paid Subscription Plan.
  • You can only dispute any charge within ninety (90) days after such charge is made to your account. Otherwise, except as required by applicable law, any and all such complaints are waived by you.
