Subscriber terms and conditions

Last updated: June 6th, 2023

This Subscriber Agreement (hereafter "Agreement") is between 50skills ehf. ("50skills") and the entity identified as the customer in the corresponding Order Form ("Customer"). This Agreement is valid from the date when the parties sign an Order Form that includes these terms (the "Effective Date").

1. Services

50skills commits to providing continuous Service to the Customer for the duration of the Subscription Term, as per this Agreement. 50skills reserves the right to modify the Service's content, user interface, and functionalities during the Subscription Term. Please note that the Customer's use of the Service does not guarantee future features or functionalities.

50skills provides the Customer access to 50skills Journeys, a Software as a Service Solution (SaaS) that allows the Customer to establish employee journeys. These journeys encompass workflows which might include one or more actions. Existing employees and/or other individuals can be added to the journeys created by the Customer.

The Customer will have access to a platform that allows them to create, read, update, and delete journeys. If needed, the Customer can request additional services from 50skills at an hourly rate, according to the Customer pricing table or any other agreed upon arrangement.

2. Payments for services

The Customer agrees to pay all undisputed amounts stated in the applicable Order Form within fourteen (14) days of the invoice date. If the Customer has any dispute with any portion of an invoice, they should pay the undisputed part and notify 50skills of the dispute by the due date. The payments are non-refundable and non-cancelable, unless stated otherwise in this Agreement.

50skills may suspend the Customer’s account if the account becomes overdue and isn't updated within ten (10) business days following a notice. The Customer will be responsible for providing complete and accurate billing information to 50skills. Unpaid amounts might accrue interest at the lower of 1.5% per month or the highest rate permitted by law, plus any collection costs.

If eligible, for transactions where payment is made via credit card, 50skills may update the Customer's payment information using account update services provided by third-party payment processors.

3. Journey Starts

"Journey Starts", also known as “Start” or “Journey Initiation” refers to starting a journey for a person added to a Journey. For the avoidance of doubt here is an example better detailing the meaning of a “Start”. 

Example 1: For instance, consider a scenario where you're onboarding a new employee. You design a journey that includes various steps like gathering information, contract creation, and sending multiple emails and text messages to various parties. This entire process for the new employee would count as one "Start" or "Journey Start".

Example 2: Alternatively, consider a situation where you're preparing for an annual company event and you include 50 employees in the journey. You send them a form to fill out about allergies and other preferences, and then carry out different actions based on their responses. In this case, you would have 50 separate "Starts" or "Journey Starts".

Unused Starts don’t accumulate month by month.

4. Text Messages

Up to three text messages are included in each monthly billing cycle per Journey Start. Example: If your plan consists fo 100 starts, and you send 500 text messages, you may be moved to a plan that better suits your needs or charged up to 0.3 EUR per text message exceeding your usage plan during that month.

5. Taxes

The fees charged to the Customer do not include taxes. The Customer is responsible for all applicable taxes related to this Agreement, including, but not limited to, sales, use, excise, value-added, goods and services, consumption, and other similar taxes or duties.

6. Usage Limits and Overages

Should the Customer's usage surpass the limits set in the Order Form plan, 50skills will adjust the Customer's account to a tier that matches their usage pattern. This might result in changes to the Customer's monthly fee, while still honoring any special terms agreed upon. 50skills will notify the Customer of such modifications and may invoice them for the difference for the remainder of the subscription period, if it exceeds one month.
