DutyCalculator Terms & Conditions
DutyCalculator welcomes you to dutycalculator.com and its related pages (collectively, the “Website”, and for the sake of clarity, includes a page on the internet, mobile app, tablet app, or similar concepts). DutyCalculator’s legal name is “Borderfree UK Limited” (f/k/a Bundle Tech Limited) and we are located at 21-22 Old Stein, Suite 301, Brighton, BN1 1EL, United Kingdom (Company No. 6777781; VAT No. GB 946 0077 23) ("DutyCalculator", "we", "us", "our").
By visiting the Website and/or using its Services or Content, you are agreeing that such visit and/or use is bound by the terms & conditions (“T&Cs”) set forth herein. “Services” means the services made available on or from the Website. We brand our Services “DutyCalculator”. “Content” means the content of the Services and the Website, including all results and other items presented and generated by the Services and the Website, and any API Keys, explanations or documentation of or related to those items. “Licensed Items” means, collectively, the Website, the Service and Content. Please read these T&Cs carefully before using the Website, providing your account details on the Website, and/or using any of the Licensed Items.
1.1 You may access many areas of the Website without providing your account details to us. Certain Licensed Items are only available from the Website if you provide your account details and/or pay a fee.
1.2 By accessing any part of the Website, you shall be deemed to have accepted these T&Cs in full.
1.3 DutyCalculator may revise these T&Cs at any time. You should check the Website from time to time to review the then current T&Cs because they are binding on you. Certain provisions of these T&Cs may be superseded or added to by terms located on particular pages of the Website or terms associated with new Licensed Items. These T&Cs were last updated on April 23, 2015.
2. WHAT DUTYCALCULATOR PROVIDES TO YOU
2.1 DutyCalculator makes available to you the Website and in some instances, subject to you providing account details and payment, certain Licensed Items.
2.2 DutyCalculator does not provide professional tax advice or opinions. Any Licensed Items that may be provided to you or used by you may not be appropriate for your specific circumstances. Whilst DutyCalculator has a rigorous quality assurance process and strives to provide Content that is accurate, it is often wholly dependent upon the accuracy of third-party sources and the timely updating of those sources by third parties in providing you with accurate Content. As such, we recommend that you confirm the accuracy of any Content and seek the assistance of tax and/or accountancy professionals in ensuring that the Content and the Services are suitable for each situation for which you need them.
3. WHAT YOU ARE LICENSED TO DO & WHO MAY SIGN UP FOR AN ACCOUNT AND USE THE LICENSE ITEMS
3.1 For the Term, so long as any account you may have is in good standing (and there are no disputes about it), any payments owed have been paid, and you have not at any time breached any obligations in these T&Cs, DutyCalculator grants you a non-exclusive, personal (meaning only to you, and to no one else in your company, third party companies or any other person or entity), non-sublicensable, and non-transferable license (the “License”) to use the following:
(a) DutyCalculator's trade and service marks, i.e., “DutyCalculator” as it is used on the Website (the “DutyCalculator Brand Features”), but only for placing a link on your website to the Website and subject to the conditions set out in 12.2 and otherwise herein.
(b) Licensed Items for Permitted Uses. “Permitted Uses” means only one-time computations, classifications, information and/or data made or provided in a given session after you enter your username, password, and/or API key, where you do not use or reuse the computations, classifications, information data and/or other items made, provided or generated thereby (“Data”) after that one-time use, do not use the Data for the purpose of collecting data, caching data, creating a database, or otherwise, and do not use it for any other purpose (including without limitation any uses prohibited hereunder).
3.2 Any license or rights not expressly granted in these T&Cs are reserved to DutyCalculator.
3.3 For the sake of clarity, the licenses granted to you in this section do not permit you to share your username, password, and/or API key with any other person or with multiple users on a network or otherwise. Sharing your username, password, and/or API key with any other person or with multiple users on a network for any purpose shall be deemed to be a breach of these T&Cs and shall give DutyCalculator the right to terminate these T&Cs with immediate effect.
3.4 Should you use a username, password, and/or API key to access the Licensed Items from more than three devices in a given 30-day period, DutyCalculator reserves the right to suspend your account, require you to register additional users on your account, create additional accounts for additional users, upgrade your account to reflect your usage of the Licensed Items, and/or terminate these T&Cs with immediate effect. Failure to abide by such requirements shall be deemed to be a breach of these T&Cs and shall give DutyCalculator the right to terminate these T&Cs with immediate effect.
3.5 The person that signs up for the account is the person to whom the License is being granted. If that person wants Licenses for additional users, that person will need to notify DutyCalculator of the users’ names and companies. If DutyCalculator grants Licenses to those additional users, those users will need to agree to these T&Cs, and by use of any of the License Items will hereby indicate such agreement.
3.4 Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these T&Cs, DutyCalculator reserves the right not to allow anyone or any entity sign up for any account, add any additional Licenses to an existing account, or use any Licensed Items in its sole discretion for any reason.
