Terms & Conditions

Tool Protect
Terms and Conditions of Use

Thank you for choosing us to help you protect your tools.

This is an agreement between you and Tool Protect Pty Ltd (ABN 20 622 339 002) (“Tool Protect”, “we”, “our” or “us”) regarding the use of the power tool cataloguing service operated by us, including all associated features and functionalities, websites and user interfaces, content, software and applications (collectively the “Services”). Access to and use of the Services is subject to the following terms, conditions and notices (the “Agreement”) and Tool Protect’s Privacy Policy (collectively the “Terms”).

By creating and account, entering into a subscription, or using the Services you agree to the Terms.

1. Subscriptions

You must have a Tool Protect account and subscription in order to use and access certain aspects of the Services (including any mobile application). You may not require a subscription to access certain aspects of our website. Subscription plans and their features may be changed by Tool Protect from time to time.

If you sign up to a subscription, you agree to the terms, conditions and limitations associated with that subscription (in addition to the Terms) that are posted on our website or applications or otherwise provided to you at that time.

We reserve the right to accept or refuse subscriptions to the Services in our absolute discretion.

2. Fees and Subscription Renewal

You may purchase a subscription from us by paying a subscription fee in advance on an annual basis or some other recurring interval disclosed to you prior to your purchase. Your subscription will automatically renew at the end of the applicable subscription period.

Tool Protect may change the price of subscriptions, including recurring subscription fees (for periods not yet paid), from time to time and will communicate any price changes to you in advance. Price changes will take effect at the start of the next subscription period following the date of the price change. You accept the new price by continuing to use the Services after the price change takes effect. If you do not agree with a price change, you have the right to unsubscribe from the Services prior to the price change taking effect.

The fees for subscriptions and other services will be stated at the time of your purchase or sign-up, as applicable, and provided at that time. If the fees for subscription are not otherwise stated at the time of purchase or sign-up, the fees contained in clause 3 will apply. Fees may be subject to tax and are non-refundable except in any specific circumstances described in these Terms.

If your subscription plan involves a recurring payment of a fee, unless you notify us before a charge that you want to cancel or do not want to automatically renew your subscription, you understand and agree that it will automatically continue and you authorise us (without notice to you, unless required by applicable law) to collect the applicable fees and any taxes using any payment details we have on file for you.

If payment of your subscription fees are declined or if we have not been provided with adequate or valid payment details by you, we may cancel your subscription unless you provide us with new and valid updated payment details. If you provide us with new payment details and are successfully charged before your subscription is cancelled, your subscription period will be based on the original renewal date and not the date of the successful charge.

3. Standard Subscription Fee

Unless otherwise stated pursuant to clause 2 or stated as part of a promotion or trial pursuant to clause 5, the subscription fee for use of the Services is $28.00AUS per annum or $3.00AUS per month GST inclusive. The subscription fee is to be paid annually or monthly in advance.

4. Promotional and Trial Offers

We may, from time to time, offer certain customers or prospective customers various trial or promotional subscriptions without payment or at a reduced rate of payment (“Promotion”). We reserve the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, to determine your eligibility for any such Promotion.

Unless disclosed otherwise by us, the fees contained in clause 3 will apply from the first day following the end of the Promotion.

We may require you to provide your payment details at the commencement of the Promotion. By providing these details you agree that we may automatically begin charging you for subscription fees on the first day following the end of the Promotion on a recurring annual basis or another interval that we disclose to you in advance.

If you did not provide payment details at the commencement of the Promotion, you agree that Tool Protect may cancel your subscription without notice unless you provide adequate and valid payment details prior to the last day of any such promotional period.

If you do not wish to be charged subscription fees upon the conclusion of any such Promotion, you must cancel your subscription before the end of the Promotion.

5. Term and Termination

You may terminate this Agreement (including your subscription and/or account) at any time by providing at least 7 days written notice to Tool Protect. The termination will take effect the day after the last day of the current subscription period or another date agreed by you and Tool Protect in writing.

Tool Protect may terminate this Agreement or suspend your access to the Services (including your account) at any time, including in the event of suspected or actual unauthorised use of the Services or any non-compliance with the Terms.

Your subscription benefits (including your license) terminate when your subscription is terminated.

If you or Tool Protect terminate this Agreement, or if Tool Protect suspends your access, you agree that Tool Protect will have no liability or responsibility towards you and you will not receive a refund of any fees already paid.

Any clauses that must by their nature remain in effect after the termination (including but not limited to clauses 6, 8, 10, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23 and 24) of this Agreement will survive termination.

You must not use your account or the Services: (i) for fraudulent purposes, or in connection with a criminal or other unlawful activity; or (ii) in any manner that is not permitted under the Terms.

We may, in our absolute discretion and upon notice to you, change the Terms and any aspect of the Service. Notices provided by sending you an email noting that the Terms have changed, or posting the updated Terms to our website will be considered valid notice for the purposes of this clause.

If you continue to use the Services after notice of any changes has been provided, your continued use is deemed to be acceptance of the changes. If you do not agree to any of the changes, you must not use the Services and cancel your subscription.

14. Service Limitations

Although Tool Protect will make reasonable efforts to keep the Services operational, interruptions from time to time will be unavoidable. Tool Protect reserves the right to, at any time and without liability to you, modify or discontinue (temporarily or permanently) aspects of the Services.

If you have already paid for Services which are subsequently permanently discontinued prior to the end of your paid subscription period, Tool Protect will refund your subscription fee for the Services for the period after such discontinuation.

15. Corporate Accounts

If you create an account on behalf of a company, organisation, entity or brand (a “Corporate”), the terms “you” and “your”, as used throughout the Terms, apply both to you and the Corporate.

These Terms do not affect your non-excludable statutory rights as a consumer under the New Zealand Consumer Law or override any express commitment from us to you regarding the Services.

18. Limitation of Liability

You agree that your sole and exclusive remedy for any problems with the Services is to end your subscription with Tool Protect and uninstall any Tool Protect software and applications from your devices. Further, any and all loss relating to the Services is limited to the amount you have paid (if any) for the Services.

Tool Protect will determine in its discretion the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the country, state, province or territory to resolve any legal matters arising from the Agreement or related to your use of the Services.

22. Severability

In the event that any provision of the Terms is held to be invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that provision will be deemed severable and will not affect the enforceability of any remaining parts.  Alternatively, you agree that any severable clause must be rectified and interpreted in such a way that closely resembles the original meaning of the part as is permitted by law.

23. Waiver

Any such additional agreement must be documented in writing and agreed to by the parties. To the extent that there is any irreconcilable conflict between any additional agreement and these Terms, the additional agreement will prevail.
