You also agree to waive any “moral rights” (or the equivalent under applicable law) such as your right to be identified as the author of any Feedback, and your right to object to derogatory treatment of such Feedback.
We offer a Free plan, currently free of charge and available only to registered users, which gives you access to basic and limited features of the Services.
Registered users who subscribe to a paid subscription, i.e. the Personal plan or the Extended plan (together “Subscriptions”), get access to a set of premium features and Content, specific to each type of Subscription. Prices and the associated features of each type of Subscription can be found on our pricing page. All prices shown include VAT or other sales tax where applicable.
If you want to purchase a Subscription, simply select the relevant Subscription on the pricing page or, if you already have an account, on the billing page within your settings on the website. Choose a billing cycle and click the “Go” button. After that, follow the instructions by our third party payment provider which will handle the payment process.
Selecting a Subscription and submitting your payment information is an offer to conclude a contract. Once we receive confirmation of your payment, your Subscription will be activated and you will receive a confirmation via email to the email address specified in your Squaric.com account. The contract for your Subscription is concluded when we upgrade your Free plan to the Personal or Extended plan (consequently, if the plan has a trial period, the conclusion of the contract coincides with the start of the trial period) or when you receive our confirmation email of the upgrade from the Free plan to the Personal or Extended plan (whichever happens first), not when you make your payment.
You can pay for your Subscription by any payment method that is presented to you during the payment process.
If you're purchasing a Subscription from anywhere within the euro area, you’ll be charged in euro (€ - EUR). If you’re purchasing a Subscription from anywhere outside of the euro area, you’ll be charged in US Dollars ($ - USD). The euro area consists of those Member States of the European Union that have adopted the euro as their currency. Once a currency has been established for your account, it’s not possible to switch to another currency.
As long as you are on a Subscription or have an outstanding balance with us, you shall provide valid payment information and you shall keep this information valid and up to date. By using a card or any other payment method presented to you, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use that card or such payment information, and that any and all charges may be billed to that payment method and won’t be rejected.
We offer Subscriptions with either a monthly or a yearly billing cycle. If you choose a monthly billing cycle, your Subscription will run from month to month, and will renew automatically at the beginning of each monthly period, for an additional month. If you choose a yearly billing cycle, your Subscription will run from year to year, and it will renew automatically at the beginning of the yearly period, for an additional, successive 12-month period.
Unless you cancel your Subscription at least 24 hours before the next billing date, your Subscription will automatically renew. If you are on a trial period, you will be billed for the first time on your next billing date, which is the date the trial is over and the date when your Subscription will automatically renew for an additional month or year, depending which billing cycle you have chosen. You can always see the next billing date and other payment information on the billing page within your settings on the website.
AUTOMATIC RENEWAL: AS STATED ABOVE, IF YOU DO NOT CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION AT LEAST 24 HOURS BEFORE THE NEXT BILLING DATE OF YOUR MONTHLY OR YEARLY SUBSCRIPTION, YOUR SUBSCRIPTION WILL AUTOMATICALLY RENEW AND YOU WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE CHARGED.
If for some reason we couldn’t renew your Subscription, for instance in case of insufficient funds, expiration of credit cards, a change in payment information or otherwise, the Subscription is cancelled and you will be automatically downgraded to the Free plan.
If you want to upgrade, downgrade or edit your current Subscription, you can do so at any time from the billing page within your settings on the website.
We, or others on our behalf, may offer from time to time trials and/or promo codes for Subscriptions for a specified period, billing cycle or Subscription at a reduced rate or without payment (together referred to as “Promotions”). We have the right, at our sole and absolute discretion, to determine your eligibility for such Promotions, and also to modify or withdraw a Promotion at any time without prior notice and with no liability.
Where applicable, you have the legal right to withdraw from the contract within the first fourteen (14) days and without giving any reason. After fourteen (14) days from the day of the conclusion of the contract, this withdrawal period (“Cooling-off Period”) will expire.
In case you withdraw from this contract within the Cooling-off Period, we will refund you all your payments made within fourteen (14) days starting from the day of the conclusion of the contract, and no later than fourteen (14) days after we receive notice of your decision to withdraw from the contract. We will refund you using the same means of payment you’ve used to make the initial payment.
YOU AGREE AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT IF YOU USE THE SERVICES WITHIN YOUR COOLING-OFF PERIOD YOU LOSE YOUR RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL, AND ARE THUS NOT ENTITLED FOR A REFUND.
After we’ve received notice of your withdrawal, we will downgrade your Subscription to the Free plan and any Subscription related Content, User Content or features, like for example some saved Favorites, will be lost.
Please note that the renewal of your Subscription or an upgrade or downgrade from the Personal to the Extended plan or vice versa, or a change in billing cycle or team size, are not considered a conclusion of a new contract and thus no “Cooling-off Period” applies.
If you want to withdraw from the contract within the Cooling-off Period, you must inform us of your decision to withdraw by an unequivocal statement. You can write us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. In order to meet the Cooling-off Period deadline, it is sufficient to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right of withdrawal before the Cooling-off Period has expired.
You can cancel your Subscription at any time, by downgrading to the Free plan, from the billing page within your settings on the website.
If you cancel your Subscription before your next renewal date, you will be downgraded to the Free plan at the end of the already paid period, and no fees already paid to us or any credit will be refunded. Any credit you might have will be lost.
If you delete your account while on a Subscription, we will not refund any fees already paid to us and any credit you might have will be lost and will not be refunded.
Other than as mentioned in the “Right of Withdrawal and Cooling-off Period” section, we have a no refund policy.
You agree and acknowledge that if you have a Subscription and we decide to no longer provide access to the Services and/or your account is being suspended or terminated (see “Termination” section below), you are not entitled to any refund, including any refund of fees you already paid to us or for any remaining period in your Subscription or of any credit you might have.
We reserve the right at any time and for any reason to limit, discontinue, terminate, suspend or cease providing access to the Services or any part thereof, permanently or temporarily, and whether with respect to individual territories only or in its entirety.
We may at any time and for any reason change the prices charged for our Subscriptions or introduce prices for any plan, change, remove or introduce new features or Content of any type of plan or Subscription and introduce new features, Content or types of plan or Subscriptions. In the event of an increase in price or a material reduction in the features or Content of any Subscription to which you are subscribed, we will inform you about such changes in advance by means of a notice on this page or within the Services or by sending registered users an email (sent to the email address specified in your Squaric.com account). What constitutes a material change will be determined at our sole discretion. Changes in price will take effect with respect to any subsequent renewal date of your current Subscription period following the date of the price change. You automatically accept the changes by continuing to use the Services after the changes take effect. If you do not agree with the changes, you must cancel your Subscription or delete your account prior to the changes going into effect.
You agree that Squaric.com, and its successors, affiliates, subsidiaries, and assigns, and any of their respective employees, directors, shareholders, officers and agents, shall not be liable to you or any third party for any modifications or changes to the Services, and for any decision to limit, discontinue, terminate, suspend or cease the Services or any part or parts thereof, or your possibility to access or use the Services within or from any territory or territories.
You may terminate this Agreement at any time by simply deleting your account within your account settings on the website and thereafter by stopping to use the Services. In the eventuality you cannot use this option, a termination request may also be requested by an unequivocal statement at email@example.com. Please remember that deleting any Squaric.com app or extension will not delete your Squaric.com account.
We may terminate or suspend your access to the Services and/or terminate this Agreement at any time and at our sole discretion, including:
If you or we terminate your account, any and all Content, including your User Content, will be immediately and irretrievably deleted, except to the extent obliged or permitted by law and regulations to retain such content, data or personal data for a certain period of time and/or to protect our legitimate business interests.

If you or we terminate the Agreement, you agree and acknowledge that Squaric.com, and its successors, affiliates, subsidiaries, and assigns, and any of their respective employees, directors, shareholders, officers and agents, shall have no liability or responsibility to you, and will not refund any amounts that you have already paid or any credit you might have, to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law.

The security of your personal data is important to us.
We take appropriate and reasonable technical measures to protect personal data. Data is encrypted in transit using industry standard Transport Layer Security (TLS) and at rest using industry standard AES encryption (AES-256). Only authorized employees are entitled to access and process personal data if this is required to provide our Services or Services related tasks, to help you with your request or to fulfill legal obligations.
Your email address and password protects your user account, so you should use a unique and strong password, keep this data secure, never disclose it to a third party and limit access to your devices. Please note that, while we take data protection precautions and security measures, no method of transmission over the internet or method of electronic storage is ever completely secure and error-free, and we can not guarantee the absolute security of user information. Keep in mind that when you use our Services and when you provide us with information you do so at your own risk and discretion.
We generally retain data as long as you do not delete your account or as long as we have a legitimate interest in doing so, such as providing our Services, and to comply with legal, accounting and reporting requirements.
Our Services are not intended for the use by children. If you are under the age of 16, if resident in the European Union, or under the age of 13 if resident in the United States or anywhere else in the world, you are not permitted to use the Services, and you must not attempt to register an account or provide any personal data to us. We do not knowingly collect any personal data from any person who is under the age of 16 or 13, as applicable, or allow them to register an account. If it comes to our attention that we have collected personal data from a person under the age of 16 or 13, as applicable, we will delete this information as quickly as possible. If you have reason to believe that we may have collected any such personal data, please notify us immediately.
In some jurisdictions, you may exercise the following rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data:
The right to data access and portability: You may be entitled to access the personal data we hold about you. You may also be entitled to request a copy of the personal data you have provided to us in a machine-readable format.
The right to rectification: You may request a correction of incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you if you can not do it yourself through your account settings.
The right to erasure: If you request to delete all or some of your personal data we hold about you, we will delete or anonymise it so that it no longer identifies you. You can also delete your account yourself at any time on the account page within your settings on the website.
The right to object: You may object to processing your personal data if we do not need to process such information for contractual or legal requirements and if our legitimate interest does not outweigh your right to objection. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes.
The right to restrict processing: You may have the right to limit the ways of processing of your personal data, under certain circumstances.
Withdrawing consent: You may withdraw consent where we processed personal data on the basis of consent. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect the processing of your personal data which is conducted in reliance to other legal bases other than consent. Options to withdraw your consent include:
If you want to exercise any of the above mentioned rights, and you can’t do it yourself from the Services, please contact us in english at support@Squaric.com. Please state clearly whether this is a request to access, correct, delete or any other of the above mentioned points.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month, e.g. if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests.
If your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive, we may charge a reasonable fee or refuse to deal with the request. We may request proof of your identity or other additional information before taking any further action on your request.
If you do have a complaint we would appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns directly and in the first instance, however you have the right to lodge complaints about our data processing activities before a competent data protection authority.
If you are a California resident you have certain rights regarding your personal data. At this point in time we do not fall under the CCPA and we are not “selling” any personal data to any third party for any direct marketing purposes.
