Use of the Service

You shall use the Service as it is, embedding it in your web pages, Apps or whatever you can use it in a HTML5 – Javascript environment. The Service has been designed to work on the client side, but can also be used on a server in an HTML5 – Javascript environment (i.e. Chrome OS virtual machine). We strongly suggest to consult the tutorials made available by Cynny for the correct integration of the Service in your applications (https://ai-sdk.morphcast.com/latest/index.html).

You shall, in any case, not (a) modify, disassemble, decompile or reverse engineer any part of the Service; (b) copy or otherwise reproduce the Service, in whole or in part, or modify, adapt, alter, translate or incorporate into or with other software or create a derivative work of any part of the Service except as expressly permitted herein; (c) autonomously distribute the Service from servers not authorized by Cynny even through a proxy server; (d) remove, modify or otherwise tamper with notices or legends on the Service or any labelling on any physical media or in cloud; (e) distribute the Service; or (f) disclose the results of any performance benchmarks or similar testing of the Service to any third Party without Cynnys’s prior written consent.

 

License key

You can get your AI HTML5 SDK full feature licence by filling out this form available on our website. 

Then you will receive a welcome email from MorphCast containing your licence key (our system generates a unique licence key for each user), and all the instructions to get started to use our AI HTML5 SDK.

Cynny will send you a monthly report with all the consumptions related to your licence key, reporting the domains and referrer URLs of the pages in which MorphCast AI HTML5 SDK has been implemented.

The report will allow you to check the consumption made by your license key on the individual domains and pages that implement the SDK. If there is a discrepancy with your implementation, please report it by emailing support@morphcast.com.

Together with this monthly report, you will also receive a proforma invoice. Only after the payment of this proforma invoice we will issue you the final invoice with the payment receipts.

 

Price of the Services

The price of the Service is based on pay per time of AI, and it is shown on the price simulator that computes the price you would pay based on your expected monthly volumes. Cost is calculated for each minute of face tracking and the minimum charge is one minute per session (instance of SDK). Cynny regularly sends a monthly report containing detailed usage information by day and pages hosting the SDK (referrers).

Where Cynny has indicated a price for the Service, this will be valid for a period at Cynny's discretion. Cynny reserves the right at any time to change the price of the Service to reflect any reasons, any increase in cost to Cynny due to any factor beyond Cynny's control (including, without limitation, any exchange rate fluctuation, currency regulation, alteration of duties, significant increase in costs of labor, materials or other production costs), any change in quantities or specifications for the service requested by the User, or any delay caused by any instruction of the User or Reseller or the inability of the User or Reseller to provide Cynny with appropriate information or instructions.

 

Payment

Subject to any special terms agreed in writing between the User and Cynny, Cynny shall invoice the User for the price of the Service on or at any time after the Provision of the Service (as applicable).

User shall pay the price of the Service (less any discount or credit allowed by Cynny, but without any other deduction, credit or set off) within 30 (Thirty) days of the date of Cynny’s proforma invoice or otherwise in accordance with such credit terms as may have been agreed in writing between the User and Cynny in respect of the Contract. Payment must be made on the due date. The time for the payment of the price will be the essence of the Contract. Invoices with payment receipts will be issued only after payment.

All payments must be made to Cynny as indicated on the acceptance form or proforma invoice issued by Cynny.

Cynny is not obliged to accept orders from any User or buyer who has not supplied Cynny with references satisfactory to Cynny. If at any time Cynny is not satisfied as to the creditworthiness of the User it may give notice in writing by email to the User that no further credit will be allowed to the User or Reseller in which event no further services will be delivered or provided to the User or Reseller other than against cash payment and all amounts owing by the User or Reseller to Cynny shall be immediately payable in cash.

 

Changes to the Services

Cynny is constantly modifying and improving the Service. We may also alter or discontinue the Service or any part of it in order to improve performance or security, change functions and functionality, or make changes to ensure compliance with the law, or prevent illegal activity or unlawful conduct on our system. We will constantly strive to take into account and offset the impact of such changes on your use of the Service. When reasonably possible, we will notify you of the discontinuation of the Service or material changes to them that will have a negative impact on their use. However, there will be occasions when we will need to make such changes without notice, such as where we need to take action to improve the security and operability of the Service, prevent illegal behavior or meet our legal requirements.

Severability

In the event any provision of this TOU is held unenforceable, it will not affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions and will be replaced by an enforceable provision that comes closest to the intention underlying the unenforceable provision.

 

No Waiver

Our failure to enforce any provisions of this TOU or respond to a breach by you or other parties shall in no way waive our right to subsequently enforce any terms or conditions of the TOU, or to act with respect to similar breaches.
