This document can change without prior notification, and was last updated at January 1st, 2015. In case of major changes to our service or these terms affecting all users, our registered users will be notified via the email they registered with. Continued use of the modmore service implies acceptance of these terms.
All purchases are in EURO only and are final as soon as payment is processed. Due to the digital nature of the products and/or services, we can not issue refunds after client initiates a product download.
If a client is not satisfied with the purchased product or service after a product download has been initiated, the client is expected to contact firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible to give modmore the opportunity to provide a fair resolution. This resolution may include releasing a new version of a product that resolves the issue reported by client; providing additional non-standard services or support, or providing client with Credit for a maximum of the amount of the disputed purchase. The resolution is at modmore.
Client initiated chargebacks without a prior, fair effort to resolve disputes, will result in the chargeback fee as determined by the bank/payment gateway contracted by modmore, and a fixed EUR 10 administrative fee to be charged to the client. Issuing chargebacks is considered a breach of these terms.
When making a purchase, you can provide modmore with an authorization to charge your Credit Card or PayPal account automatically. This authorization is also sometimes referred to as "Card on File" or "Token Billing". An authorization is required when starting a subscription, but also provides a convenient one-click checkout for one-time orders. By providing an authorization, modmore stores a secure token representing your Credit Card details or PayPal account on its systems.
Your authorization will be automatically charged:
- whenever a subscription renewal is due
- when you choose the authorization during checkout
- when you provide us written or verbal permission to charge your authorization for other purchases or services
To manage or cancel authorizations, please visit the Authorizations page in the Account section of the website. While a subscription is active, there always needs to be at least one trusted authorization on file
Authorizations can have one of the following statuses assigned:
- Authorized (10): the card or paypal account has been authorized, but has not yet been charged successfully before.
- Trusted (20): the card or paypal account has been charged successfully before.
- Preferred (30): when a user has multiple authorizations with a status of Trusted, one of them can be marked as Preferred which will be charged when a subscription is renewed.
- Failed once (-10): an attempt to charge the card or paypal account failed. It may be attempted again at a later time.
- Untrusted (-20): multiple attempts to charge the card or paypal account failed. At this point, the authorization token is removed and the authorizations will not be attempted in the future.
- Cancelled (-30): the card or paypal account was cancelled by the client. The authorization token is removed.
Chargebacks as a result of an automatic charge will result in the authorization being set to a status of Untrusted.
PayPal Authorizations can also be managed via the PayPal website. Transactions that were charged with an Authorization will show a Billing Agreement ID, and a description of "modmore.com billing authorization". By following the link to view the Billing Agreement Details it is possible to view the authorization details, as well as the payment sources. It is also possible to cancel the billing agreement, which will prevent modmore from charging your account in the future.
It is possible to use an Authorization to start a Subscription for one or more products and/or services at modmore. The subscription is renewed automatically at a standard interval and can be cancelled at any time by visiting the Subscriptions page in the Account section of the website. Upon cancellation, the subscription will not be renewed at the end of the subscription interval. Any benefits associated with the subscriptions will automatically expire at the end of the current subscription interval.
When a subscription is active and only one authorization is on file, it is not possible to cancel the authorization. Instead, the subscription will need to be cancelled first.
For terms and conditions of specific subscription products, please view the following Terms & Conditions included by reference:
Credit can not be exchanged for cash or withdrawn, but can be spend as discount on any modmore purchase. Credit may expire after a year of user inactivity in which case the user will receive at least one notification a month in advance as well as one notification a week in advance. Specific products may hold a limit to the amount of credit that can be spent on a purchase, which will be mentioned on the product page or relevant terms and conditions.
Specific promotions involving Credit may impose additional restrictions on usage of related Credit. This will be clearly identified in the terms related to the Promotion.
Clients are encouraged to take part in the modmore affiliate program. All clients are provided an affiliate ID, instructions and example link on the Affiliate page in their account section.
Whenever a user without active session visits the modmore website through an affiliate link, a cookie will be stored on that users' computer for a period of 30 days with the related affiliate ID. If the user continues to create an account on modmore.com with an affiliate cookie on their system, the newly created user account will contain a reference to the affiliate user.
For each successful purchase of a user with a reference to an affiliate user, a percentage of the actual revenue of that purchase (price of purchase, minus all discounts and before taxes) will be rewarded to the affiliate as Affiliate Credit. The affiliate will be notified via email and has access to a complete list of affiliate transactions on the Affiliate page in the account section of the website.
The standard affiliate percentage is 10%, but may be different per user or product. modmore retains the right to disable the affiliate program for one or all users and to correct individual affiliate credit and/or transactions.
Affiliate Credit can be spend on any modmore purchase and will be processed as a discount on item price. When the user has collected EUR 50 affiliate credit a cash payout can be requested by contacting support, with a maximum of one affiliate credit payout per month.
The modmore website contains a utility to automatically convert product prices in EUR into other currencies, including USD and GBP. This will adjust the way prices are shown on the website with an automatically calculated estimate based on third party currency conversion data. Purchases are always processed in Euro and the estimates shown by this utility are not binding in any way.
The final charge in a local currency depends on many factors out of modmore's control, such as transaction fees incurred by the clients bank for currency conversion.
modmore is not liable for the result of using any of our products or services in any way. All of our products and services are provided without guarantee of fitness for any purpose. There is no guarantee on availability of our website and infrastructure (such as the modmore package provider).
If modmore believes a client is acting in breach of the terms, including but not limited to the Terms of Service and product license terms, in a way that may be harmful for modmore, its partners or other involved parties, the client may be declined access to the website, infrastructure, products or services without right of refund or other compensation at the discretion of modmore.
