TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE

 

Hello, and welcome to Paperturn’s Terms and Conditions of Service (“Terms”). 


The Terms you see below are important because they:

  • Outline your legal rights on Paperturn

  • Explain the rights you give to us when you use Paperturn

  • Describe the rules everyone needs to follow when using Paperturn


Introduction and Definitions

Thanks for choosing Paperturn  ("us", "we", "our", "the Company") as your online flipbook provider. Paperturn provides a platform for our clients (“you”, “your”, “customer”) to convert their PDF files into interactive, online flipbooks as well as other products and services that may be developed from time to time. 


By signing up or otherwise using any of Paperturn’s services, including all associated features and functionalities, websites and user interfaces, as well as all content and software applications associated with our services (collectively, the “Paperturn Service” or “Service”), or accessing any content or material that is made available through the Service (the “Content”) you are entering into a binding contract (“Agreement”) with Paperturn.


Your Agreement with us includes these Terms, any additional terms that you sign as well as our Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy. You acknowledge that you have read and understood the Agreements, accept these Agreements, and agree to be bound by them. If you don’t agree with (or cannot comply with) the Agreements, then you may not use Paperturn’s Service or website.


In order to use Paperturn’s Services and access any Content, you need to (1) meet the age requirements applicable in your country of residence and (2) have the power to enter a binding contract with us and (3) not be barred from doing so under any applicable laws. You also promise that any registration information that you submit to Paperturn is true, accurate, and complete, and you agree to keep it that way at all times. 

 

Changes to the Agreements

Occasionally we may make changes to the Agreements for valid reasons, such as: improving existing functions or features, adding new functions or features, implementing advancements in technology and reasonable technical adjustments to the Service, ensuring the operability or the security of the Service, and for legal or regulatory reasons. When we make material changes to the Agreements, we’ll provide you with notice as appropriate under the circumstances, e.g., by displaying a prominent notice in your account or by sending you an email. In some cases, we will notify you in advance, and your continued use of the Service after the changes have been made will constitute your acceptance of the changes. Please therefore make sure you read any such notice carefully. If you do not wish to continue using the Service under the new version of the Agreements, you may terminate your account.


Trials

We offer a free, 14-day trial period of our Services (a “Trial”). Paperturn may determine your eligibility for a Trial, and withdraw or modify a Trial at any time without prior notice and with no liability, to the extent permitted under applicable law.


Third Party Applications

Paperturn is integrated with and may otherwise interact with third party applications, websites, and services (“Third Party Applications”) to make our services available to you. These Third Party Applications have their own terms and conditions of use and privacy policies and your use of these Third Party Applications will be governed by and subject to such terms and conditions and privacy policies. You understand and agree that Paperturn does not endorse and is not responsible or liable for the behavior, features, or content of any Third Party Applications or for any transaction you may enter into with the provider of any such Third Party Applications, nor does Paperturn warrant the compatibility or continuing compatibility of the Third Party Applications with our Service.


User-Generated Content

You may upload your PDF files, or otherwise contribute user content to the Service (which may include, for example, pictures, links, videos, text, information, descriptions and/or other types of content) (“User Content”). For the avoidance of doubt, “User Content” includes any such content posted to the Paperturn Support Community as well as any other part of the Paperturn Service.


You represent and warrant that, with respect to any User Content you post on Paperturn, (1) you own or have the right to post such User Content, and (2) such User Content does not violate our Agreements or any other rights & limitations set forth within our user guidelines or applicable laws or intellectual property laws.


Papeturn may, but has no obligation to monitor, review, or edit User Content.

Paperturn may take these actions without prior notification to you or any third party. Removal or disabling of access to User Content shall be at our sole discretion.


You are solely responsible for all User Content that you post. Paperturn is not responsible for User Content nor does it endorse any opinion contained in any User Content. YOU AGREE THAT IF ANYONE BRINGS A CLAIM AGAINST PAPERTURN RELATED TO USER CONTENT THAT YOU POST, THEN, TO THE EXTENT PERMISSIBLE UNDER LOCAL LAW, YOU WILL INDEMNIFY AND HOLD PAPERTURN HARMLESS FROM AND AGAINST ALL DAMAGES, LOSSES, AND EXPENSES OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING REASONABLE ATTORNEY FEES AND COSTS) ARISING OUT OF SUCH CLAIM.
