Scope of Terms
FAIRO (the Application) is a mobile and/or desktop (depending on the country of usage) application maintained by the Provider targeting:
– Romanian individual entrepreneurs and small businesses, organized either in the form of a liberal profession under the law performed individually, of authorized natural persons (in Romanian PFA), family associations (in Romanian IF), individual enterprises (in Romanian II), individual natural persons (in Romanian PFI) or limited liability companies (in Romanian SRL);
– private individuals and legal entities in other countries (for activities with invoices which are available in Application).
The Application is designed to enable its users to create, send, receive and manage invoices, as well as use other services (including, but not limited to, concierge services, banking services), as these will be provided, including via modules by third party providers via the Application (Third Party Modules), when available. The features and services provided include available languages for the documents and the currencies, are the ones made available in the Application at the date of use of the Application, and these might be changed and updated by the Provider at its sole discretion. By using the Application, the User declares that the User acts in professional capacity when using the Application and has fulfilled all registration formalities, as required under the applicable law, and the User fulfills the conditions mentioned in these Terms and in the Application.
The Application may contain certain in-app features available on a payment or subscription basis (the Paid Features). The price and other conditions of such Paid Features are described in Application or on Fairo site (https://www.fairoapp.com/). All communications and notifications related to the use of the Application by the User will be with the contact details provided by the User in the Application and it is the User’s duty to provide updated information, or otherwise, we will use the details available and will consider the communication rightfully sent there.
The User may subscribe to Paid Features for the subscriptions periods as set out within the Application. Unless any subscription of a Paid Feature is terminated by the User within Google Play or App Store prior to the end of the subscription period, it will be automatically renewed for the same period of time as initially subscribed (eg in case of subscription for one month, renewal will be for another month each time not priorly terminated) unless otherwise determined in subscription conditions. Any termination with effective date prior to the end of any already started subscription period is not possible. The remaining terms of the User’s Agreement with Fairo will remain unaffected by any subscription of a Paid Feature or its termination.
By clicking on the “Join Fairo” button available during the sign up process in the Application, the User acknowledges that the User has read, accepted and agrees with the Terms. By accepting the Terms, the User enters into an Agreement between the User and the Provider subject to the provisions as described in the Terms (the Agreement).
Term and Termination
The Agreement shall be deemed concluded for an indefinite period of time. The User may terminate the Agreement at any time and for any reason by sending a notice to the Provider (by email), in which case the Provider would deactivate the User’s Application profile to the effect that the Application features will be disabled for the User. If any Third Party Module is available to the User, in order to deactivate the User’s Application profile the User needs to follow the termination process as set forth in the agreement with the provider of such Third Party Module additionally. Refunding the User’s purchases is in such case not possible. Termination of the Agreement means the User no longer has access to the information and Content from the Application; therefore, it is the User’s responsibility to ensure that, when allowed in the Application, the User has saved and stored all its information and documents (including the invoices) that the User needs, prior to termination.
The Provider may terminate the Agreement at any time and for any reason subject to a prior notice provided to the User reasonably in advance, unless otherwise provided herein, agreed by the parties or required under applicable laws. If termination is caused by the User’s breach of the Terms or the applicable law when using the Application, termination will be effective immediately, without a notice period.
We reserve the right to change these Terms (updating to a new version) at any time, and the changes (new version) will be effective when posted on our website www.fairoapp.com and in the Application, except for users of the Application who entered into the Agreement before the date of such posting. For such users of the Application a notification will be sent by email and the changes (new version) of these Terms will be effective 30 days after the day of respective notification (if other period is not determined in said notification). The User’s use of the Application after such a period means that the User agrees with the new version of the Terms. The 30 days period will not be applicable, and the changes will become applicable immediately, if the changes are merely informal and do not have an impact on the relationship with the User (e.g., drafting or other changes that do not modify the meaning of the provisions). If the User does not agree with the changes, the User may terminate the Terms at any time within 30 days after the day of respective notification (if other period is not determined in said notification) and free of charge. Any new features, instruments or services available in the Application will be subject to these Terms. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any amended terms concerning the Paid Features shall not be deemed applicable until the end of the respective prepaid subscription period; unless the User terminates the subscription prior to the end of prepaid subscription period the User is expressing the User’s acceptance of the changes which will become effective for the User as from the beginning of the new prepaid subscription period. The updated version of the Terms can always be consulted in the Application and the User can save a copy of the Terms applicable at any moment.
