These User Terms (the “Terms”) govern your (“you”/”your”) use of Cantemo AB’s (Swedish corporate identity number 556810-0779, hereinafter referred to as “Cantemo”) cloud based media management and collaboration platform, Cantemo Iconik™ (the “Platform”). Through use of the Platform, you agree to and will be bound by these Terms (and shall ensure that any authorized user complies with the Terms). The Terms apply until your use of the Platform is terminated, or on the date otherwise determined and communicated to you by Cantemo.
1. Use of the platform
The Platform (including the software, if any, and documentation), is provided against payment in accordance with section 2 below and “as is”. Cantemo makes no (and you receive no) warranties in connection with the Platform or modifications or improvements thereto delivered hereunder; express, implied, statutory or in any other provision of these Terms or communication between Cantemo and you.
Cantemo aims to provide the Platform fully available, bug-free, and safe, but all use of the Platform is at your and the user’s own risk. Cantemo does not warrant that the Platform will always be available, secure and without errors or interruptions, delays or imperfections. Cantemo cannot guarantee that content uploaded to the Platform is available all the time, or that no harm comes to said content. You and any user will be solely responsible to keep backup of any content uploaded to the Platform and Cantemo cannot be held liable for any damage or disappearance of content uploaded to the Platform.
Cantemo specifically disclaims all implied warranties with regard to the Platform, including warranties of merchantability, noninfringement and fitness for a particular purpose, or arising from a course of dealing, usage or trade practice. In no event shall Cantemo be liable for any, incidental or consequential damages, lost profits or lost data, or any other indirect damages even if Cantemo has been informed of the possibility thereof. Should Cantemo be held liable, Cantemo’s entire liability in connection with your use of the Platform shall be limited to an aggregate amount corresponding to fifty (50) per cent of the remuneration paid by you to Cantemo during the last twelve (12) months prior to the occurrence of the circumstances giving rise to the liability, or, where you have used the Platform for less than twelve (12) months, fifty (50) per cent of the remuneration paid by you to Cantemo during such shorter period. Said limitations shall not apply in the event of willful misconduct or gross negligence on part of Cantemo.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Cantemo may upon request (and subject to separate agreement) undertake to provide the Platform at agreed service levels in accordance with a separate Service Level Agreement. Such agreement shall be entered into in writing and be signed by both parties in order to be binding.
2. Credits and payment
All use of the Platform and the features therein requires that you hold sufficient credit. Credits are purchased in advance and can be used across all available usage metrics, such as users, storage, and data traffic. The credit amount can be determined by you and will be based on an estimated consumption rate for an estimated period of time. This estimation shall not be construed as a binding undertaking from Cantemo, but solely as an estimation in order for users to know roughly when additional credits must be purchased in order to keep using the Platform. Purchased credits are non-refundable.
Cantemo may choose to change the charges for use of the Platform and/or the features included in the Platform. Any such changes will come into effect thirty (30) days after you have received notice of the change. Changes will however not affect the value of credits already purchased by you, but instead be applied when new credit are purchased. If you do not accept the changes, you may terminate your subscription in accordance with 6.1 below.
If you do not have sufficient credits for use of the Platform and/or your chosen features, Cantemo may suspend your access to the Platform until full payment is made. Cantemo may also choose to terminate the contract between us with immediate effect.
Depending on your choice of transaction method, you may be charged additional fees for the transaction or for any other reason by the issuer of your chosen mean of payment. Local taxes may also vary depending on your choice of payment method. For more information about this, please contact the issuer of your choice of payment method.
Unless local mandatory law states otherwise, payment of fees is non-refundable. Refunds will never be made due to non-use of the account.

6. Term and Termination
You may choose to terminate your account at any time. In order to terminate your account, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will however always be able to use any remaining credits. The account will be terminated once the credits are no longer sufficient to cover your use. The Terms apply until your account has been terminated.
Cantemo may terminate the account or suspend your or a by you authorized user’s access to the Platform at any time, including in the event of actual or suspected unauthorized use of the Platform and/or its content, or non-compliance with the Terms.
Cantemo is entitled to terminate the account with immediate effect if: a) you enter into bankruptcy or reconstruction, composition proceedings, suspends payments, enter into liquidation or in any other way can be assumed to have become insolvent, or b) materially violate any provision of the Terms and fail to remedy such violation within thirty (30) days after having received written notice thereof.
Any breach of the terms in sections 4 and 5 shall always be regarded as material breach which entitles Cantemo to terminate the account with immediate effect.
Upon the termination of account, for whatever reason, the following provisions of the Terms will still apply: 3.1, 3.2, 3.5, 4.1, 4.2, 4.3, 4.5, 5.1, 5.2, 5.4, 8.1 and 8.2.
The Terms, together with any additional terms and conditions (e.g. terms regarding charges/credits and usage metrics, etc., as set out on the Platform), constitutes the entire agreement between you and Cantemo and thus supersedes all previous understandings, whether oral or in writing, between the parties on the same subject.
Neither party may wholly or partly assign or pledge its rights and obligations under the Terms to any third party except with the prior written consent of the other party.
Cantemo is entitled to change the Terms during the term of your use of the Platform, provided that you have been informed of such change not less than [thirty (30)] calendar days in advance. In the event of such change you are entitled to terminate your account in accordance with section 6. Such termination must be effected not less than [ten (10)] calendar days prior to the change of terms taking effect. If you do not terminate the account as just said, this will constitute an acceptance by you of the change of the Terms.
If any provision of the Terms or part thereof is held invalid, this shall not affect the remaining provisions of the Terms.
A party is relieved from liability for a failure to perform any of its obligations due to any circumstance beyond its immediate control, which impedes, delays, or aggravates any obligation to be fulfilled by said party under the Terms, such as changes in laws and regulations or in the interpretation thereof, acts of authorities, war, acts of war, labor disputes, blockades, major accidents and currency restrictions.
8. Governing law and disputes
Our contract, including the Terms, shall be construed in accordance with and be governed by the laws of Sweden. Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or in connection with the contract, or the breach, termination or invalidity thereof, shall be finally settled by arbitration administered by the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (the “SCC”). The Rules for Expedited Arbitrations shall apply, unless the SCC in its discretion determines, taking into account the complexity of the case, the amount in dispute and other circumstances, that the Arbitration Rules shall apply. In the latter case, the SCC shall also decide whether the Arbitral Tribunal shall be composed of one or three arbitrators. The seat of arbitration shall be Stockholm and the language to be used in the arbitral proceedings shall be English, unless both parties to the proceedings agree in writing to use Swedish as the language to be used.
The parties undertake, without any limitation in time, not to disclose the content of any contract negotiations, as well as the presence or content of an arbitration award arising from the Terms or information regarding negotiations, arbitration or mediation arising from the Terms. What is stated in this section 8.2 applies unless otherwise is prescribed by law, statute, authority regulations, stock exchange regulations or good practice on the stock market or otherwise required for the enforcement of a judgement.
