General terms and conditions
Terms and Conditions
This End User License agreement (EULA), consists of two parts. The general terms and conditions (the main contract) and the Data Processing Agreement (DPA). This is a contract between Easygenerator and the user of Easygenerator’s SaaS authoring tool. You are considered a user when you create an account and accept these terms.
1. The Easygenerator Service:
The “Service” includes:
- the authoring SaaS application
- the website and web shop (my account pages)
- The (optional) hosting of the learning content for your learners
- the (optional) tracking and tracing database for the results of your learners
- Our built-in support and the online help
2. Acceptance of terms
- Easygenerator provides its Service to you through its website easygenerator.com
- By accepting these terms or accessing Easygenerator provided URLs, you acknowledge that you have read, understood and agreed to be bound by the following terms, and that all materials made or used by you on easygenerator.com are within your rights to make. If you are entering these terms on behalf of an employer or third party, you represent that you have authority to bind that entity to these terms. If you do not have such authority or do not agree to the terms and conditions, you cannot use the Easygenerator Service.
- You acknowledge that these terms constitute an agreement between Easygenerator B.V. and you and that your digital signup for the Easygenerator Service acts in place of a physically signed agreement and Easygenerator’s Processor’s Agreement.
3. Subscription terms and payment
- Each person is allowed one free trial of Easygenerator for a 14-day period unless agreed otherwise.
- At the end of the 14-day trial period, the account will revert to a Free Plan unless the customer upgrades to a paid account. When reverting to Free all data will be saved, but Easygenerator does not take any responsibility for any loss of data.
- All Easygenerator subscriptions are named subscriptions. A single subscription can only be used by one person. A user is not allowed to share his account or account details with other people. Sharing of content can be done between named accounts via the collaboration features. Using a named Easygenerator subscription with more than one person will result in an automatic downgrade to the Free Plan.
- All Plans are billed in advance. If you choose a monthly Plan, this Plan will renew on the same day in the next month (if you upgrade on the 15th, your Plan would renew each month on the 15th). There is also an option for yearly Plans that also needs to be paid in advance and will auto-renew after exactly one year, with a yearly plan a two months discount is applied.
- If payment is not received by Easygenerator in the initial auto-renewal process the customer will be notified via email. If the payment is not received the account will revert to the Free Plan and all paid functionality will be lost.
- Customers can upgrade their subscription to another Plan at any time. There are no refunds for downgrades or cancellations of accounts before the pre-paid period has expired. If the customer upgrades during their pre-paid period, the difference for the remaining days of their billing month will be charged pro-rata at time of upgrade. After that the customer will be charged the new price for each subsequent billing period.
- Customers can cancel their subscription once by emailing a written request to [email protected] Yearly plans can be cancelled upon 1 (one) month notice. As soon as the cancellation is realized, the user will be downgraded to the Free Plan or (on his request) the account will be removed. Easygenerator reserves the right to delete the content of all cancelled accounts.
- Easygenerator shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, price change, suspension or discontinuance of the Service.
- Easygenerator reserves the right to implement price changes with 30 day notice to the customer. Customers on monthly subscriptions will be charged the new price the next month that falls after the 30 days. Customers on annual accounts will be charged the agreed amount for the full 12 months of their contract; after that the new price will take effect. Excluding any onetime discount for year one, the Annual price changes shall not exceed 5 % of the current customer pricing.

You acknowledge that Easygenerator does not warrant that the Service will be uninterrupted. No information or advice obtained by you from Easygenerator or through the Service shall create any warranty not expressly stated in these terms.
12. Limitation of liability
a) No consequential damages. Under no circumstances and under no legal theory (whether in contract, tort, negligence or otherwise) will either party to these terms, or such party’s affiliates or their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, suppliers or licensors be liable to the other party or any third party for any indirect, incidental, special, exemplary, consequential, punitive or other similar damages, including lost profits, lost sales or business, lost data, business interruption or any other loss incurred by such party in connection with these terms or the Service, regardless of whether such party has been advised of the possibility of or could have foreseen such damages.

If Your use of the Service has become, or in Easygenerator’s opinion is likely to become, the subject of any such Claim, Easygenerator will replace or modify the Service to make it non-infringing by modification of the Service by anyone other than Easygenerator.
