  1. Project Plan license

    a) License grant. Project Plan is licensed and not sold. Upon your installation of Project Plan, Cherryware grants you a nonexclusive and limited license to use the software under these terms. These licenses are solely for Licensee’s own use and are only transferable under the described terms. Paid licenses are granted per person. One person/employee can use each license on a maximum of 3 devices. The paid Project Plan license must only be used by that individual person. When an employee leaves the company, the licensee ensures that any paid Project Plan license is removed from the machine (“unregister device”). Afterwards, the license can be used by another employee. This license transfer is possible max. two times per year.

    b) Duration of licenses. Paid licenses expire at the end of the applicable period set forth in the Order, unless renewed. The license can be returned up to a maximum of 14 days after completion of the purchase without giving reasons. Afterwards, early termination or refunds are excluded.

    c) License Key. After purchase, the licensee will receive one or many license keys, which enables to upgrade from Project Plan FREE to Project Plan PRO. The license key must never be shared with public, written on any forum or website or shared with any unauthorized persons. Otherwise, the license key will become invalid and the license itself will become void. No refund will be paid in these cases and the licensee is liable for any damage incurred.

    g) Feedback. Any user feedback, feature requests or ideas are given voluntarily, and the provider grants to the recipient, without charge, a non-exclusive license under provider’s owned or controlled non-patent intellectual property rights to make, use, modify, distribute, and commercialize the Feedback as part of any of recipient’s products and services, in whole or in part and without regard to whether such Feedback is marked or otherwise designated by the provider as confidential.

  2. Reseller

    Our order process is exclusively conducted by one of our two online resellers, Paddle and Microsoft. Paddle and Microsoft are the Merchant of Record for all our orders. The resellers provide all customer service inquiries and handle returns.

    During the purchase process on our website, a website from Paddle.com is embedded to handle the purchase. By accepting these terms and continuing the purchase process, you also accept the terms and data privacy regulations of our reseller.

  3. Refund Policy and Cancellation Right

    As a customer you have the right to cancel and return your paid license within 14 days without giving any reason. The cancellation period will expire after 14 days from the day after completion of the transaction. To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient that you send your communication to Paddle concerning your exercise of the cancellation right before the expiration of the 14 day period.
    To cancel your order, you must inform Paddle of your decision. To ensure immediate processing, please do so by contacting them here. Please note that in respect of subscription services your right to cancel is only present following the initial subscription and not upon each automatic renewal.

    Refunds are provided at the sole discretion of our online reseller Paddle.com and on a case-by-case basis and may be refused. Paddle will refuse a refund request if they find evidence of fraud, refund abuse, or other manipulative behaviour that entitles Paddle to counterclaim the refund.

  4. Data retention

    a) Project plan data that is no longer in active use is automatically deleted after a set period of time. Data of users without an activated PRO license will be deleted 6 months after the last read/write access. Data of users with an activated PRO license will be deleted 2 years after the last read/write access.

    b) In addition, project plan data becomes indecipherable when the last reference (e.g. a tab in Microsoft Teams, a PowerPoint slide, or a URL to the plan) to that plan is deleted by the user. It is technically impossible to restore the data.

  5. Privacy

    It is our policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating Project Plan and its website. The policy is descibed in detail in our separate privacy policy document.

  6. Subcontractors

    Licensee agrees to the commissioning of subcontractors to provide the technical solution.
    We are currently using the following subcontractors: Paddle.net (reseller), Microsoft.com (reseller and cloud provider) and Domainfactory.de (web hosting)

  7. SLAs

    A paid Project Plan PRO license includes an SLA with a service availability of 99,95% per calendar month. Planned maintenances, communicated upfront on the Project Plan website do not reduce the availability.

    The availability is measured by the independent provider Better Uptime.

    In case, the availabilty is lower than 99,95% in a month, the licensee has the right to be refunded on a pro-rata basis of the subscription fee for the time when Project Plan was unavailable. The claims expire unless they are intimated within 1 month.

  8. Verifying compliance

    License keys are activated online. Cherryware keeps track of the online activations and reserves the right to decline activation if a license key seems to be shared or illegaly used.

    If license verification reveals any unlicensed use, Licensee must, within 30 days, order sufficient licenses to cover the period of its unlicensed use.

    Without limiting Cherryware’s other remedies, if unlicensed use is 5% or more of Licensee’s total use of all software licenses, Licensee must reimburse Cherryware for its costs incurred in verification and acquire sufficient licenses to cover its unlicensed use at 125% of the then-current Licensee price or the maximum allowed under applicable law, if less. All information and reports related to the verification process will be Confidential Information and used solely to verify compliance.

    Cherryware generates a random client ID for every Project Plan client to verify that a Project Plan license key is not used from more than three devices.

  9. Limitation of Liability

    Cherryware’s maximum, aggregate liability to licensees is limited to direct damages finally awarded in an amount not to exceed the amounts Licensee was required to pay for Project Plan during the term of the applicable licenses. For Project Plan PRO subscriptions, Cherryware’s maximum liability to Licensee for any incident giving rise to a claim will not exceed the amount Licensee paid for Project Plan during the 12 months before the incident. For the free Project Plan offering, Cherryware does not take any liability. In no event will Cherryware be liable for indirect, incidental, special, punitive, or consequential damages, or loss of use, loss of profits, or interruption of business, however caused or on any theory of liability.
