Data Retention: the Company will keep all the data archived in the Customer's account until the date the account is canceled. The account Cancellation Date corresponds to:
The date on which the Customer expressly requests the cancellation of the account
90 days following the Agreement End Date, which coincides with the last day of the period covered by the last payment made by the Customer (for example if the Customer pays for the Service on a quarterly basis, the Cancellation Date is set at 90 days from the last day of the last quarter paid).
Data Portability: the data entered by the Customer in Kindertap can be exported at any time in a structured format of common use within the Agreement End Date.
Plans and Service fees:
Kindertap is released as Saas in Freemium mode. Each new account is activated with a Free Plan and, upon request, the Customer can convert it to Premium. The Free Plan allows the Customer to use the Service for free, but with some restrictions. Activating a Premium Plan, on the other hand, the Customer can use the Service against payment of a fee, which depends on the modules / features requested and the related usage thresholds. The differences between the Free and the Premium Plan are available on the page https://www.kindertap.com/pricing/.
With the Premium Plan, the Customer will have to choose the periodicity for charging the usage fee (for example monthly, quarterly, half-yearly, annual) and the related payment method (Credit card, PayPal and, for some countries, Bank Transfer). The Company processes payments and charges the renewal of the Service (in case of Premium Plan) in a fully automatic manner 10 days in advance of the expiry date of the period previously paid (in the case of payment by bank transfer, this period is 15 days). This period is called the Renewal Period and allows the Customer, if the charge is unsuccessful, to regularize his position before the Deadline (for example by changing his payment method). Therefore, if the Customer intends to switch from a Premium Plan to a Free Plan, or to change the thresholds of his Premium Plan, he must do it before the Renewal Date.
In the case of transition from a Free Plan to a Premium Plan, the Customer has 3 days to pay the fee. After this period, the account is temporarily suspended until the payment is received.
The fees of the Premium Plan can be consulted within the Service during the Plan modification procedure using the Price Configurator. The Price Configurator allows the Customer to calculate the amount of the fee based on the modules, thresholds and periodicity of payment required. The Company reserves the right to modify the price list at any time, by giving written communication to the Customer (via e-mail or directly within the Service) and to apply these changes to the Premium Plan already accepted by the Customer and to pending payments. Any changes to the price list are applied starting from the subsequent renewal of the Service and in any case not earlier than 30 days from the date of communication to the Customer.
Some payment methods may provide for minimum debit thresholds, therefore if the total amount of a certain payment is lower than the minimum debit threshold, this will be increased until it reaches this threshold.
By confirming the Plan through the Price Configurator, the Customer authorize the Company to charge periodic amounts through the payment method chosen.
The Premium Plan fee includes a sum for the Storage, necessary to store photos and files (documents). The amount of Storage used by the Customer is calculated by summing up the dimensions of each single photo / file, considering a minimum size of 100 kB per photo / file.
Use of the Service:
Purpose: The service will be used for the sole purpose of administering the operations of one school or daycare or childcare center with one or more locations.
Duration: By registering for use of the Service either on Kindertap website or its apps the Customer agrees to these terms of service for the entire duration of use.
Access: the access to the Service is allowed through:
App for Android devices, available both for the Customer and for his own customers (for example the parents of enrolled children), with limited functionalities compared to the Web App;
App for iOS devices, available for the Customer’s customers (for example the parents of enrolled children), with limited functionalities compared to the Web App.
Free Plan: the use of the Service starts with a Free Plan without duration limits, which allows the Customer to try the Service with the restrictions listed on the page https://www.kindertap.com/pricing/. By using the Service with the Free Plan, the Customer makes sure that Kindertap corresponds to his needs. Each organization / company / professional can only use one Free account.
Automatic blocks: the Customer is aware that Kindertap has automatic mechanisms for the verification of improper use of Free accounts (for example the use of multiple Free accounts) and that, in case of violation of these conditions, the Customer’s Free accounts can be immediately suspended.
Account: to use the Service, the Customer must activate an account. During the creation of the account, the Customer will be asked to indicate his e-mail address, corresponding to the Username, and to choose a Password (Username and Password together are called "Credentials"), which he must keep in a safe place. The Customer is solely responsible for the custody of the Credentials that he uses to access the Service. The Company assumes no responsibility for loss or damage resulting from the failure to comply with these recommendations. The Customer undertakes to provide complete and correct Credentials each time he logs into Kindertap. The Customer is also responsible for any use of his account.
Types of Users: the Credentials entered during the creation of the Kindertap account by the Customer will be associated to an Administrator user who will have full powers within the Service. Through the Administrator account, the Customer can create other users of equal or lower level such as: Administrator, Coordinator, Educator, General Employee and Parent / Family member. Each type of user, with the exception of the Administrators, has powers limited to certain areas and functions of the software. Also the users that are not Administrators can create new accounts to the Service which can be equal to or lower than their own level. For example, a Coordinator can create these types of users: Coordinator, Educator, General Employee and Parent / Family Member; while the Educator can create other Educators, General Employees and Parents / Family Members. The creation of new users is subject to the following requirements:
the user must not be of the Parent / Family type;
to create other users, the type of user must have access to the Adults records in the Service.
Loss of Credentials: if lost, the credentials of each user can be reset by the user himself by following the appropriate procedure on the login page of the website https://www.kindertap.com/. This procedure is possible only if the user has linked an e-mail address to his Kindertap account and if this address has been verified by following the appropriate procedure within the Service. Administrator users, in order to log into Kindertap for the first time, must have previously carried out the verification procedure for their e-mail address. Non-Administrator users, in case of loss of credentials without a verified e-mail address, can request the reset of their credentials to any users authorized to access the Adult records in the Service.
Plan thresholds: Kindertap constantly monitors that the quantity / type of data saved by each Customer is lower (or equal) to the thresholds set out in the Plan. If these thresholds are exceeded, the operation of some modules (or of the entire account) can be suspended as long as the customer does not regularize his position.
Premium Plan Change: changes to the Premium Plan that result in a decrease of the thresholds are valid only if the values of the new thresholds are maintained for more than 90 consecutive days. Changes to the Premium Plan that lead to an increase of the thresholds will only become effective after the Customer has paid the difference displayed in the Configurator.
Group Policies: some user profiles (called Group Policies) are preconfigured in the Service. The Customer can create other customized Group Policies. These Group Policies can be associated with the different types of user of the Service.
Account Cancellation: the Customer can request the cancellation of his account at any time using the specific procedure available in the Service. The cancellation involves the deletion of all the data contained therein (including user profiles created through the account).
The Customer acknowledges and agrees that the Company own all legal right, title and interest in and to the Service, including any intellectual property rights which subsist in the Service (whether those rights happen to be registered or not, and wherever in the world those rights may exist).
Unless the Customer has agreed otherwise in writing with the Company, nothing in the Terms gives him a right to use any of Kindertap trade names, trademarks, service marks, logos, domain names, and other distinctive brand features.
Except as provided in Section 7, the Company acknowledges and agrees that it obtains no right, title or interest from the Customer (or his licensors) under these Terms in or to any Content that he creates, submits, posts, transmits or displays on, or through, the Service, including any intellectual property rights which subsist in that Content (whether those rights happen to be registered or not, and wherever in the world those rights may exist). Unless the Customer has agreed otherwise in writing with the Company, he agrees to be solely responsible for protecting and enforcing those rights and that the Company has no obligation to do so on his behalf.
License from the Company and Restrictions:
The Customer may not (and he may not permit anyone else to):
attempt to disable or circumvent any security mechanisms used by the Service or any Application;
upload or otherwise process any malicious content to or through the Service.
Unless the Company has given you specific written permission to do so (e.g., through an open source software license), the Customer may not assign (or grant a sub-license of) his rights to use the Kindertap Software, grant a security interest in or over his rights to use the Kindertap Software, or otherwise transfer any part of his rights to use the Software.
License from the Customer:
The Customer agrees that the Company, in its sole discretion, may use his trade names, trademarks, service marks, logos, domain names and other distinctive brand features in presentations, marketing materials, customer lists, financial reports and Web site listings (including links to the Customer’s website) for the purpose of advertising or publicizing the Customer’s use of the Service.
The Company acknowledges that in the course of providing the Service or support for it, its associates might be exposed to the Customer’s data and other information. Unless the Customer specifies otherwise in writing, such information must be treated as proprietary to the Customer and not disclosed to other third parties, including but not limited to Customer’s non authorized staff and the Customer’s customers.
Software Updates and availability of service:
The Software and apps which the Customer uses may automatically download and install updates released from time to time from the Company (or its licensors). These updates are designed to improve, enhance and further develop the Service and may take the form of bug fixes, enhanced functions, new software modules and completely new versions. The Customer agrees to receive such updates (and permits the Company to deliver these to him) as part of his use of the Service. Let it be understood that the Customer will have access to these updates only if included in the features included in his Plan.
The Company will make commercially reasonable efforts to keep the Service up and running at all times. However, the Service might need to be occasionally unavailable for maintenance. In such cases, the Company will make commercially reasonable efforts to bring the Service down for maintenance during non business hours. We will also make commercially reasonable efforts to announce routine maintenance with advance notice.
The Company does not guarantee the Customer the continuity of the connection to the Service and, therefore, will not be in any way responsible for any technical disruptions that prevents connection to the Service, or to individual pages of it, and / or the use of one or more functionality of the Service. The Customer acknowledges and declares that he will have nothing to claim against the Company in case of disruptions to the Service that could compromise access to the Service or its correct and complete functionality (e.g. clogging of the lines, impossibility or difficulty of connection to the Service or to its individual pages, total or partial impossibility of using one or more additional services from any given cause, etc.). The Company therefore invites the Customer to take advantage of the export functions. The Customer will be exclusively responsible for the telecommunications network and Internet connection services necessary to be able to access and use the Service and the Company will not be responsible for any defect related to this.
Modification and Termination of the Service:
The Company is constantly innovating in order to provide the best possible experience for its users. The Customer acknowledges and agrees that the form and nature of the Service which the Company provides may change from time to time without prior notice to the Customer, subject to the terms in Sections 4 and 10.2. Changes to the form and nature of the Service will be effective with respect to all versions of the Service; examples of changes to the form and nature of the Service include without limitation changes to fee and payment policies, security patches, added functionality, and other enhancements.
The Customer acknowledges and agrees that it is his and his customers' responsibility to use the latest version available of the Service, as updates could cause the interruption of some Kindertap functions if the version used is not the last available.
At any time prior to releasing a new version of the Service, the Company may, in its discretion as part of its continuing innovation to provide the best possible experience for its users, label certain features or functionality of the Service as “experimental” or “beta”.
The Customer may discontinue his use of the Service at any time. The Company may, at any time, terminate the Customer’s use of the Service if:
the Customer has breached any provision of the present Terms (or have acted in manner that clearly shows that he does not intend to, or is unable to comply with the provisions of the Terms);
the Company is required to do so by law (for example, due to a change to the law governing the provision of the Service);
the Service relies on data or services provided by a third party partner and the relationship with such partner (i) has expired or been terminated or (ii) requires the Company to change the way it provides the data or services through the Service;
providing the Service could create a substantial economic burden as determined by the Company in its reasonable good faith judgment;
providing the Service could create a security risk or material technical burden as determined by the Company in its reasonable good faith judgment.
If the Company suspends or terminates the Customer’s use of the Service for just cause, except in the case the Customer do not renew the use of the Service, the Company undertakes to transmit to the Customer all the personal data stored in his account within 48 hours. In the event that the Customer does not renew the Service (or does not pay the fee within the established terms), he will have to autonomously export the data whithin the Deadline.
The Company reserves the right to eliminate “dormant“ Free accounts, i.e. accounts for which no logins have been registered for more than 180 days. The elimination will take place 30 days after the company has informed the Customer via email of the imminent elimination. If the Customer logs into the account within the 30 days following the first communication from the Company, the programmed deletion will not be carried out.
Upon any termination of the Service under Sections 4 or 10, these Terms will also terminate, but Sections 6.a., 11, 12, 13, and 17 shall continue to be effective after these Terms are terminated.
