Last updated: 28 March 2023
Your online purchase transaction ("Transaction") is subject to the terms and conditions set out below which create a contract (the "Agreement") between you and by Autodesk Ireland Operations Unlimited Company, an Irish company having its principal place of business at 1 Windmill Lane, Dublin 2, D02 F206 Republic of Ireland ("Autodesk") governing that Transaction upon Autodesk’s acceptance of Your Transaction order. Read these terms and conditions carefully.
By submitting Your order You accept these terms and conditions in the Autodesk online cart through which You place Your Transaction order (the "Online Cart"), (A) You acknowledge that You have read these terms and conditions, understand them, and agree to be legally bound to them, on behalf of the company or other legal entity for which you ("You") are acting ("Company") or if there is no Company, on behalf of Yourself as an individual; (B) You represent and warrant that you (i) have the right, power and authority to act on behalf of and bind Your Company (if any) or Yourself (if there is no such entity); (ii) are at least of the age of majority in Your jurisdiction of residence; (iii) have exclusively relied upon the statements and representations expressly set out in this Agreement and not on any statement or representation of any Autodesk representative or any third party including any commercial agents, service providers or resellers, and (iv) you are entering into this Agreement as a business-to-business transaction.
These terms and conditions may change from time to time, so review them upon submission of each order, even if You have reviewed them before. Autodesk recommends that You print and keep a copy of these terms and conditions (and any other documents referred to in these terms and conditions) for Your reference. Autodesk retains version control of all terms and condition, and a copy of the terms and conditions in effect on the date You place Your order can be provided upon request.
1.1 By clicking on the “Submit Order”, “Buy” or similarly termed button You are placing a Transaction order online to purchase products, services and/or subscriptions from Autodesk subject to these terms and conditions.
1.2 By submitting Your information to Autodesk in relation to Your Transaction order, You consent to such information being processed to fulfil Your Transaction order and in accordance with Autodesk’s Privacy Statement. The Autodesk Privacy Statement is incorporated by reference into and is made a part of these terms and conditions.
1.3 A Transaction order submitted by You constitutes an irrevocable offer by You to Autodesk to purchase the products and/or services and/or subscriptions named in the Transaction order subject to these terms and conditions at the price quoted in the Online Cart for those products and/or services and/or subscriptions, and is subject to subsequent acceptance and fulfilment by Autodesk, irrespective of whether the button or link You press or activate to submit Your Transaction order to Autodesk includes words such as “Buy” or otherwise could be interpreted as the final step in completion of Your Transaction order. A renewal order, when applicable, as set forth in Section 8 of these terms shall constitute a different Transaction.
1.4 You will receive an order confirmation/receipt from Autodesk once Your Transaction order has been received and sent to be processed for fulfilment. Note that any such acknowledgment does not constitute a formal acceptance of Your Transaction order and such acceptance shall not occur until Autodesk has made the products, services and/or subscriptions named in the Transaction order available to You in accordance with Section 6 of this Agreement. Autodesk may cancel Your Transaction order or any renewal (as applicable) at any time and for any reason, prior to fulfilling Your Transaction order or Your renewal (as applicable); if this is the case, Autodesk will refund any prior payment that You have made for that/those products, services and/or subscriptions.
1.5 If Autodesk is unable to process payment using the payment method You provided with Your Transaction order, You otherwise fail to make a payment when due, or if Autodesk has reason to believe that You (i) are otherwise in breach of these terms and conditions, and/or any other agreement You may have with us, or (ii) by virtue of applicable law are ineligible to purchase or use products or services or subscriptions purchased via the Online Cart; or (iii) have engaged in fraud or criminal activity in connection with Your use of any products or services or subscriptions, then, without prejudice to any of Autodesk’s other rights, Autodesk may do any or all of the following: (a) stop any products or services or subscriptions being fulfilled to You; (b) stop or suspend ongoing access to products or services or subscriptions; or (c) cancel any automatic renewal plan in which You have elected to participate.
1.6 Without limiting the generality of any other section of this Agreement, Autodesk reserves the right to limit or refuse any Transaction order You place with Autodesk. Further, Autodesk reserves the right to verify the validity of all Transaction orders and/or cancel any Transaction orders if Autodesk finds evidence of fraud, tampering and/or any other violation of the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Autodesk may, in its sole and absolute discretion, limit or cancel quantities purchased per person or per order. These restrictions may include Transaction orders placed by or under the same account, the same credit card, and/or Transaction orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. If Autodesk cannot fulfil or refuse Your order in whole or in part for any reason, Autodesk will give you the option to cancel it entirely and Autodesk will refund any moneys paid in accordance with the Autodesk Return Policy.
2.1 The price for the products, services and/or subscriptions You order, and any additional charges applicable to Your Transaction order, will be quoted to You in the Online Cart applicable to those products, services and/or subscriptions and will also be indicated on Your order confirmation/receipt. These are the prices and charges that will be charged to Your credit card or other accepted payment method.
3.1 All prices quoted and amounts payable by You are exclusive of any tax, levy or similar governmental charge that may be assessed by any jurisdiction, including, without limitation, any federal, state, provincial/territorial or local sales, excise, value added tax (VAT), use or goods and services taxes, or the equivalent, whether based on the delivery, possession or use of the products, services or subscriptions, or otherwise ("Taxes") except for net income, net worth or franchise taxes assessed on Autodesk. Any such Taxes to be collected or paid by Autodesk shall be Your responsibility and shall appear as a separate item on Your order confirmation/receipt (unless Autodesk receives a valid tax exemption certificate from You prior to processing Your Transaction order).
4.1 The Payment methods recognized by Autodesk are listed in the Online Cart. Only payment methods recognized by Autodesk will be accepted by Autodesk. Autodesk does not offer any credit terms, unless specifically indicated in the Online Cart. If You elect to use the services of a third-party payment or billing provider in connection with Your purchase from Autodesk, and provided Autodesk accepts payments from such third-party provider on Your behalf, Your use of such services will be subject to the third-party provider’s own terms and conditions. You may be required to create an account with such third-party provider and/or provide that third party provider with Your bank account or credit/debit card details. Autodesk is not responsible for, and you agree to hold Autodesk harmless from and against, any liability resulting from the acts or omissions of any third-party payment or billing provider. Autodesk reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to change the permitted methods of payment, including without limitation, the credit cards and/or other types of payment options Autodesk is able to accept, at any time.
4.2 Payment shall be made by the payment method selected in Your Transaction order and in the currency identified in the Online Cart. Your Transaction order will be fully paid when the amount of applicable prices and charges in that currency is received by Autodesk. Any currency exchange costs, or bank commission associated with payment shall be borne by You. Autodesk will charge credit, debit cards, or other permitted payment method on fulfilling Your products and/or services and/or subscriptions to You. Autodesk reserves the right to verify and/or authorize credit or debit card payments prior to acceptance of Your Transaction order. Once Your Transaction order has been accepted Autodesk will send You an order confirmation/receipt confirming Your purchase and the amount that has been charged to You.
For any overdue amount Autodesk offset the receivables against any amounts due to You. Autodesk reserves the right to engage a third-party to assist with collection of any overdue amounts, and You will be responsible for reasonable cost of that assistance.
7.1 You may cancel Your product, service and/or subscription purchase in accordance with the terms of the Autodesk Return Policy which are incorporated herein by reference.
8.1 If You purchase a service or subscription, then by clicking on the “Submit Order”, “Buy”, or similar termed button and completing Your purchase, You expressly request and authorize Autodesk to automatically renew Your service or subscription for successive renewal terms each equal in length to the initial term purchased by You, at the purchase price for Your initial term (plus any/all applicable taxes and other fees and charges), unless Autodesk notifies You of a price change (see below), using the payment information You provided for Your initial purchase, until You cancel in accordance with the Autodesk Return Policy.
8.2 For services or subscriptions of particular length initial terms (e.g. annual length terms), Autodesk will send You at least one email to remind You of each upcoming renewal of that service or subscription. Further, in the case of all/any services or subscriptions Autodesk will post a confirmation to Your Autodesk Account each time Your service or subscription is automatically renewed.
8.3 Autodesk may change the renewal price of Your service or subscription as of the next renewal date and Autodesk will provide You with prior notice if Autodesk does so. Prior to the effective date of Your renewal (which will be indicated in the notice provided to You), You can elect to cancel an automatic renewal for a particular service or subscription at any time and for any reason (including if You do not agree to a price change) by logging on to Your Autodesk Account and following the steps to cancel that automatic renewal.
8.4 Certain services or subscriptions, including Flex tokens that are not made available on a term basis, will not renew automatically and will require a new purchase upon expiration to continue accessing them.
