3. TYPES OF CUSTOMER ACCOUNT
- There are three types of Customer Accounts available to you: (a) a free account sometimes referred to as a “community” account (“Free Account”)
; (b) a paid account, the different levels of which may be referred from time-to-time as a “Superior”, “Business” or “Enterprise” account (each a “Paid Account”); (c) a free trial of our Paid Account (each a “Free Paid Trial Account”).
- The Free Paid Trial Account allows you to have access, free of charge, to all those features and benefits of a Paid Account for a period of seven (7) days without charge (the “Trial Period”). At the end of the Trial Period, you can either upgrade to a Paid Account, or if no upgrade is made then your account will downgrade to a Free Account.
- You are only permitted to have one (1) Free Paid Trial Account. It is a breach of this Agreement to sign-up for multiple Free Paid Trial Accounts. Any Customer found breaching this Clause 3.3. maybe permanently prohibited from using the StatusCake Service.
- Details of the features of the Free Account, along with the costs and features of the Paid Accounts can currently be found on the payment plan page of the StatusCake Website (the “Payment Plan”).
- Subject to your adherence to all of the terms of this Agreement you will be entitled to the term of this Agreement to those features, test limits, and prices that were available on the Free Account or Paid Account on the Effective Date. (“Grandfathered Features”).
- You are not permitted to sell or otherwise transfer your account to a third party without the prior written consent of StatusCake.
- Notwithstanding the foregoing, from time-to-time StatusCake may allow a reseller (a “Reseller”) to, amongst other things, to enter into negotiation for the purchase of a StatusCake Yearly Plan along with the payment and renewal of the same, where the ultimate beneficiary of such Paid Plan is another party, often referred to as the “End Customer. Where a Reseller purchases a Paid Account on behalf of the End Customer, both the Reseller and End Customer acknowledge and accept that they are both joint and severally liable under these Terms.
4. FREE ACCOUNTS
- You are only permitted to have one (1) Free Account. It is a breach of this Agreement to sign-up for multiple Free Accounts. Any Customer found breaching this Clause 4.1 may be permanently prohibited from using the StatusCake Service.
- It is a condition of your Free Account that it remains active. For the purposes of this Agreement “active” means that your Free Account has been logged into within the last one-hundred-and-fifty (150) days. Any Free account not meeting this criterion will be deemed “Abandoned”.
- Whilst we will endeavour to remind customers thirty (30) days before their Free Account becomes Abandoned, it is your responsibility to ensure that your account is active, regardless of whether any reminder has been received.
- We have the right to pause, suspend, or delete any Abandoned Free Account in our absolute discretion.
5. PAID ACCOUNTS PAYMENTS
- Payment Plans can be signed up for on a month-by-month basis (a “Monthly Plan”) or purchased for a year in advance (a “Yearly Plan”) and each auto-renews in the following manner: (a) he Monthly Plan shall be renewed on a monthly basis, one (1) month from you signing-up for your Paid Account and each month thereafter (each a “Monthly Renewal Date”), until such time as you cancel your Paid Account; and (b) the Yearly Plan shall be renewed on a yearly basis, one (1) year from you signing-up for your Paid Account and each year thereafter (each a “Yearly Renewal Date”), until such time as you cancel your Paid Account.
- Save where you make Payment By Invoice, where you purchase a Yearly Plan the cost is discounted by two (2) months so that the plan fee is calculated as ten (10) times the cost of a Monthly Plan (the “Yearly Plan Discount”).
- Where you sign-up for a Paid Account using a credit or debit card inside the StatusCake Service application, then the price of your Paid Account will continue as per the Payment Plan on the Effective Date (the “Grandfathered Price”) until such time as: (a) you cancel your account as set out in Clause 9.1 below; (b) you downgrade your account as set out in Clause 6.1 below; or (c) you are in default of any payment due in relation to your Paid Account.
- From time to time we may increase the price of our Paid Accounts. In the event that the price of a Payment Plan is increased (“New Prices”) we will not apply New Prices to Customers who qualify for the Grandfathered Price.
- Where you do not qualify for the Grandfathered Price you will be entitled to continue using your Paid Account at the price you signed-up to until the next Monthly Renewal Date or Yearly Renewal Date as applicable. By continuing to use your Paid Account beyond this date, you accept that we will be entitled to charge you the New Prices.
- If you do not accept the New Prices then you should cancel your Paid Account prior to the next Monthly Renewal Date or Yearly Renewal Date as applicable, however no pro-rata refund will be given for the period of time between the Cancellation Date and the Finish Date.
6. UPGRADING & DOWNGRADING A PAID ACCOUNT
- In the event that you decide to upgrade a Paid Account to a higher level of account, by way of example only, from a Superior Account to a Business Account (each your “Original Paid Account” and an “Upgraded Paid Account“) then you will have access to the features of the Upgraded Paid Account immediately upon making the relevant payment for that Upgraded Paid Account. The Monthly Renewal Date or Yearly Renewal Date(as applicable) for your Upgraded Paid Account will be extended by the number of days that were still to run on your Original Paid Account until the next Monthly Renewal Date or Yearly Renewal Date (as applicable).
- In the event that you decide to downgrade your Paid Account to a lower level of account, by way of example only, from a Business Paid Account to a Superior Paid Account (each your “Original Paid Account” and a “Down-Graded Paid Account“) then your account will be down-graded from the date on which your account would otherwise have renewed.
- Where you have been entitled to a Grandfathered Price on your Original Paid Account you will not be entitled to any Grandfathered Price on your Down-Graded Paid Account and you will be charged the price that is in place for that Down-Graded Paid Account at the time at which your downgrade takes effect.
- Where you have been entitled to Grandfathered Features on your Original Paid Account you will not be entitled to any Grandfathered Features on your Down-Graded Paid Account and you will be only be entitled to those features and test limits that are in place for that Down-Graded Paid Account at the time at which your downgrade takes effect.
7. SMS CREDITS
- Where you have a Paid Account that is entitled to inclusive SMS credits, by way of example only, where a Superior Paid Account is entitled to seventy-five (75) SMS credits per month (“Paid Account Monthly Credits”), these Paid Account Monthly Credits cannot be rolled over from one month to another and do not have a cash value.
- Prior to purchasing any SMS credits, by way of example only, where you have a Free Account or wish to purchase SMS credits in addition to your Paid Account Monthly Credits (“Additional SMS Credits”), you should check that Additional SMS Credits can be used in both your country of residence and the mobile network you wish to use them on (“SMS Availability“).
- No refund will be given if you purchase Additional SMS Credits where they are unable to be utilised and/or delivered for reasons that are not within our immediate control, including but not limited to a lack of SMS Availability; where an SMS alert has failed to be delivered due to issues with your cell-phone carrier, cell-phone networks, or your cell-phone itself; or where you have incorrectly added the wrong cell-phone number to a contact group.
- Additional SMS Credits do not have a cash value but may be rolled over from one month to another and do not expire.

- No Yearly Plan Discount or other discount is available when making Payment By Invoice.
- When making Payment by Invoice, payment must be made in full in cleared funds without any deduction (whether for taxes, bank fees or any other otherwise) within thirty (30) days from receipt of invoice (the “Due Date”).
- If you fail to pay any amount due and payable under this Agreement by the Due Date then you will pay us interest on such overdue amount from the Due Date until the actual date of payment at a rate of two per cent (2%) per annum above the Bank of England base rate. Interest will accrue on a daily basis and be compounded quarterly.
- Notwithstanding Clause 8.4 above, in the event that payment is received more than fifty (50) days after the Due Date, the cost of renewal for the auto-renewing plan will, for that Yearly plan only, be increased by twenty per cent (20%).
- The Parties agree that failure to make payment of any due invoice will be a material breach of this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we reserve the right to suspend any Paid Account where payment has not been made by the due date.
- For the avoidance of doubt, any Paid Account where Payment By Invoice is the payment method will auto-renew in the manner as set out in Clause 5.1 above. If you wish to cancel your Paid Account where you make Payment By Invoice then you must notify us in writing by emailing [email protected] with the subject line “StatusCake – Invoice Cancellation” no later than seventy (70) days before the renewal date.
- Any terms on a purchase order, invoice or other documentation provided by you and completed by us to facilitate your Payment By Invoice do not amend this Agreement and do not constitute variations to this Agreement as set out in Clause 22.5 below.

Neither Party may act as if it were, or represent (expressly or by implying it) that it is, an agent of the other or has such authority.

Provided always that nothing in this Clause 22.8 will operate to limit or exclude any liability for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation, no other representations or terms shall apply or form part of this Agreement and each party acknowledges that it has not been influenced to enter this Agreement by, and shall have no rights or remedies (other than for breach of contract) in respect of, anything the other Party has said or done or committed to do, except as expressly recorded in this Agreement.
