Our rights and responsibilities

Subscription to the premium features is in force until the end of the paid subscription term after which it renews automatically if the subscription is not cancelled.

If the payments can not be charged or are not otherwise completed, You will no longer have access to the premium features of the service.

The surveys and related information which was obtained during Your subscription to the premium features will stay accessible for You even if You decide to cancel the premium features.

12. Miscellaneous

12.1. Assignment

Our rights and responsibilities

We may transfer or assign Your subscription to a company belonging to another company group of companies, or to a successor of Our relevant business operations in connection with a merger, business transfer or other corporate transaction.

Your rights and responsibilities

Your subscription is non-transferable. You may not assign or transfer the subscription or any rights or obligations to a third party.

12.2. Force majeure

Our rights and responsibilities

Sometimes bad things happen that we cannot affect in any way. This is why we are not liable for delay, damage or inadequate performance to the extent caused by a condition (for example, natural disaster, interruptions in general traffic, data communication or supply of electricity, import or export embargo, strike, lockout, boycott, war or insurrection) that was beyond Our reasonable control. We shall without delay inform You in writing of a force majeure event and the termination of the force majeure event.

Your rights and responsibilities

You will receive Our notification of a force majeure event and the termination of the force majeure event.

14.3. No waiver

If You or Us do not utilize the rights set out in these Terms, it does not mean that We or You should let the option go. Neither party’s failure to exercise any of its rights under the subscription shall constitute or be deemed a waiver or forfeiture of those rights or any other rights hereunder.

14.4. Severability

If any provision of these Terms is found unenforceable (for any reason), We shall replace that provision with a new one being as close to the replaced provision as legally possible, leaving the remainder of these Terms unaffected.

13.Governing law and Dispute resolution

We are a Finnish company, so these Terms are governed and construed in accordance with the laws of Finland, excluding its choice of law provisions. This means that any rule in Finnish law, which would lead to application of some other jurisdiction’s law, is not applied here. So Finnish law it is.

Our lawyers told us that it is better to settle any disputes in negotiations, and in arbitration if necessary. Arbitration is a bit more informal and faster than a lawsuit in court. Therefore, You and Us agree to seek amicable resolution through negotiation to any dispute arising out of or in connection with these Terms.

If You and Us cannot reach a settlement through negotiation, the disputes shall be finally settled in arbitration in accordance with the Arbitration Rules of the Finland Chamber of Commerce using a single arbitrator. The seat of arbitration is Helsinki, Finland and the language of arbitration Finnish or English. Evidence may be provided in both languages.
