Thank you for choosing Zipify Apps. Zipify Apps is a company focused on developing eCommerce applications for platforms and marketplaces such as Shopify and BigCommerce (each a “platform” and together “platforms”). Zipify Apps’ applications bring together marketing, eCommerce and the platform to help store owners grow their business. These Terms of Service (“Terms” or “Agreement”) apply to the applications and services (the “Apps”) provided by Zipify, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Zipify Apps”). The terms and conditions of this Agreement and any guidelines, rules and policies incorporated herein form a legal and binding contract between you and Zipify Apps.
BY ACCEPTING THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, YOU AGREE TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU ARE ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT ON BEHALF OF A COMPANY OR OTHER LEGAL ENTITY, YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO BIND SUCH ENTITY AND ITS AFFILIATES TO THIS AGREEMENT, IN WHICH CASE THE TERMS “YOU” OR “YOUR” SHALL REFER TO SUCH ENTITY AND ITS AFFILIATES. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE SUCH AUTHORITY, OR IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THESE TERMS, YOU MAY NOT USE THE APPS OR RECEIVE SUCH SERVICES.
1. ACCEPTANCE, APPS AND RIGHTS OF ACCESS
- This is an agreement for access to and use of the Apps, and you are not granted a license to any software by this Agreement. You are only granted the right to use the Apps solely for the purposes described by Zipify Apps. Our Apps may obtain certain information about you during the installation of our Apps in order to properly operate the functionality of the Apps, including, without limitation, store name, store domain, shop owner’s first and last name, time zone, and account email. You agree to provide accurate, current and complete information as prompted (such information being the “Registration Data”) and to maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it accurate, current and complete as requested from time to time.
- Subject to your agreement and continuing compliance with these Terms, including, without limitation, meeting the applicable payment obligations, we grant you a personal, nonexclusive, nontransferable, non-sublicensable, revocable, limited right to access and use our Apps solely for your own internal business purpose for one store per applicable platform per App. You agree not to use the Apps for any other purpose unless we have provided you with prior written authorization. We reserve any and all other rights in the Apps.
- We reserve the right to modify or discontinue the Apps (or any part thereof) with or without notice at any time. You agree that we shall not be liable to you or any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Apps, except as otherwise specified in any separate rules governing certain events or contents. If we discontinue the Apps (or any part thereof) for a reason other than due to a breach of these Terms by you, we will refund a prorated portion of any pre-paid fees paid by you for the Apps.
- The Apps are intended for the use of adults 18 years or older. You acknowledge and agree that you are not permitted to use the Apps, and you shall not use our website, if you are under the age of 18.
- The Apps may contain data from one or more third party sources; to the extent that any such source is used, you will comply with all such third party license and data use requirements.
- Certain application programming interfaces (“API”) may contain code, commonly referred to as open source software, which is distributed under any of the many known variations of open source license terms, including terms which allow the free distribution and modification of the relevant software’s source code and/or which require all distributors to make such source code freely available upon request, including any contributions or modifications made by such distributor (collectively, “Open Source Software”). To the extent that any API contains any Open Source Software, that element only is licensed to you pursuant to the relevant license terms of the applicable third party licensor and not pursuant to the licenses contained in this Agreement, and you accept and agree to be bound by such terms.
2. COMMENCEMENT DATE, FEES AND PAYMENT

- You authorize the platform or our merchant account provider the right to charge such credit card or perform such debits from your account.
- If your payment and registration information is not accurate, current, and complete and you do not notify us promptly when such information changes, we may suspend or terminate your account and refuse your use of the Apps. If you do not notify us of updates to your payment method (e.g., credit card expiration date), to avoid interruption of your service, we may participate in programs supported by your card provider (e.g., updater services, recurring billing programs, etc.) to try to update your payment information, and you authorize us to continue billing your account with the updated information that we obtain.
- Your Subscription will continue unless and until cancelled or terminated under this Agreement.
