LIAD Financial Services Terms of Use

Last updated 2 February 2018.

Welcome to LIAD Financial Services (“LIAD”), an online accounting (LIAD Accounting and LIAD Invoicing) and personal finance management (LIAD Home Finances) service designed especially for small businesses and consumers. These Terms of Use (“Terms”) are intended to explain our obligations as a service provider and The Users obligations as a customer. Please read them carefully.

These Terms are binding on any use of the Service provided by LIAD (“Service”) and apply to The User from the time that LIAD provides The User with access to the Service.

The LIAD Service will evolve over time based on user feedback so LIAD reserves the right to change or modify any of the terms and conditions contained in these Terms, or any policy or guideline applicable to the Services, at any time and in its sole discretion. LIAD will make every effort to communicate these changes to The User via email at the email address provided in The Users registration information, or we will post a notice in the Application visible to The User the next time The User accesses the Application. It is The Users obligation to ensure that he/she has read, understood and agrees to the most recent terms available on the LIAD website. These Terms are not intended to answer every question or address every issue raised by the use of the LIAD Service.

If you are on a Free Trial, any modifications become effective immediately. If The User does not agree with the changes, he/she can cancel their account with us without further obligation. If you have paid your Access Fee, you must notify LIAD within fifteen (15) days of notice of the modifications that you do not agree to such changes, and LIAD (at its sole option and as your exclusive remedy) may either: (a) permit you to continue under the prior version of these Terms until your next subscription expiration or renewal date (after which the modified Terms will apply) or (b) allow you to terminate these Terms and receive a pro-rated refund based on the unused portion of your Access Fee. Unless otherwise specified, any changes or modifications will be effective immediately upon posting of the revisions on the website, and continued use of the Services after such time will constitute The Users acceptance of such changes or modifications. The User should from time to time review the Terms and any policies and documents incorporated in them to understand the terms and conditions that apply to the use of the Services. The Terms will always show the ‘last updated’ date at the top. If The User does not agree to any amended Terms, the Services must stop being used with immediate effect.

  • if there is any dispute between a Subscriber and an Invited User regarding access to any organisation or Service, the Subscriber shall decide what access or level of access to the relevant Data or Service that Invited User shall have, if any.

3. THE USER’S OBLIGATIONS

  • Payment obligations:

An invoice for the Access Fee will be issued each month starting one month from the date The User added the first organisation to his/her LIAD account. All invoices will include the Access Fee for the following one-month (or where annual Access Fee is offered, annual) period of use. Where applicable, the Access Fee will be charged to The User’s iTunes Account upon confirmation of the purchase. The User’s iTunes Account will be charged for renewal within 24-hours prior to each Payment Due Date, identifying the Access Fee. LIAD will continue invoicing The User monthly (whether the Service is being used or not) until this Agreement is terminated in accordance with clause 8.

LIAD reserve the right to change the Access Fee from time to time. Where the fee is changed, The User will receive 30-days’ notice. Continued use of the Service after the change indicates your agreement with the new fees and charges after the effective date of the change. Any change to fees and other charges will not be applicable to the billing period in which the change occurs.

All LIAD invoices will be sent to The User, or to a Billing Contact whose details are provided by The User, by email. The User must pay or arrange payment of all amounts specified in any invoice by the due date for payment and are payable on the Payment Due Date. The User must pay all Access Fees and taxes to LIAD or the authorised third party through whom you made your purchase. The User is responsible for payment of all taxes and duties in addition to the Access Fee.

  • Utilising App Store Auto-Renewal Capability:

Where The User elects to utilise the ‘In-App’ purchase capabilities offered, the following should be noted:

  • Length of Subscription is, 30-days (or where the annual Access Fee is offered, 365-days) from each Payment Due Date as defined;
  • Access Fee is as published in our Schedule of Fees;
  • Payment will be charged to The User’s App Store Account on the Effective Date and subsequently on each Payment Due Date until The User terminates the Service;
  • Subscription will automatically renew unless the auto-renew function is turned off at least 24-hours before the Payment Due Date;
  • The User’s App Store Account will be charged within 24-hours of the Payment Due Date and the cost of the renewal will be identified on The User’s account;
  • Subscriptions may be managed by The User and auto renewal may be turned off after purchase by going to The User’s Account Settings; and
  • No cancellation of the current subscription is allowed during the Current Subscription Period.
  • Pricing Offers or Discounts:

LIAD may from time to time offer The User preferential pricing or discounts for the Access Fees as a result of the number of organisations that have been added with The User’s authority or as a result of The Users use of the Service (‘Organisations’). Eligibility for such preferential pricing or discounts is conditional upon The User’s acceptance of responsibility for payment of any Access Fees in relation to all Organisations added using The User’s authority. Without prejudice to any other rights that LIAD may have under these Terms or at law, LIAD reserves the right to render invoices for the full (non-discounted) Access Fees due or suspend or terminate The User’s use of the Service in respect of any or all Organisations in the event that any invoices for those Access Fees are not paid in full by the due date for payment.

  • General obligations:

The User must only use the Service and Website for The User’s own lawful internal business purposes, in accordance with these Terms and any notice sent by LIAD or condition posted on the Website. You may use the Service and Website on behalf of others or in order to provide services to others but the onus is on The User to ensure that they are authorised to do so and that all persons for whom or to whom services are provided comply with and accept all terms of this Agreement that apply to The User.

  • Automated Bank transaction data delivered into Your LIAD account:

Where this service has been negotiated by LIAD with the local banking service providers, automated bank account transaction data feeds are generally provided to The User free of charge. However, LIAD reserves the right to pass on any charges related to the provision of bank feed data on a case-by-case basis at LIAD’s sole discretion. LIAD would first inform The User via email to indicate what those charges are likely to be (as such charges may vary depending on The User’s bank and volume of bank feeds). The User has the option to decide to discontinue use of automated bank feeds at any time. To exercise this option, The User must give LIAD sufficient prior notice of which automated bank account transaction data feeds are to be discontinued. Upon receiving such notice LIAD will arrange for such feeds to be terminated in accordance with each bank’s usual practices. Where The User elects to utilise these services, the relationship is with the Third Party Service Provider (including their use of your information and any fees you owe) and is governed by the Third Party Service Provider’s Terms of Service or other terms presented through the Service. The User (not LIAD) shall be fully responsible for and assume all risk arising from your use of such Third Party products or services and from the use of Customer Data by such third parties.

  • Access conditions:
    • The User must ensure that all usernames and passwords required to access the Service are kept secure and confidential. The User must immediately notify LIAD in writing of any unauthorised use of passwords or any other breach of security and LIAD will reset The User password and The User must take all other actions that LIAD reasonably deems necessary to maintain or enhance the security of LIAD’s computing systems and networks and The User’s access to the Services.
    • As a condition of these Terms, when accessing and using the Services, The User must not (nor permit anyone else to):

      • publicly disseminate information regarding the performance of the Service;
      • access the Service to build a competitive product or service;
      • transmit, or input into the Service, any:
    • files that may damage any other person’s computing devices or software;
    • viruses, worms or other harmful code;
    • content that may be offensive; or
    • material or Data in violation of any law (including Data or other material protected by copyright or trade secrets which The User does not have the right to use); and
      • attempt to modify, copy, adapt, reproduce, disassemble, decompile, attempt to derive the source code or reverse engineer any computer programs used to deliver the Services (including any non-public API’s) or to operate the Website except as is strictly necessary to use either of them for normal operation.
    • Usage Limitations:

Use of the Service may be subject to limitations, including but not limited to monthly transaction volumes and the number of calls The User is permitted to make against LIAD’s application programming interface. Any such limitations will be advised.

  • Communication Conditions:

As a condition of these Terms, if The User uses any communication tools available through the Website (such as any forum, chat room or message centre), The User agrees only to use such communication tools for lawful and legitimate purposes. The User must not use any such communication tool for posting or disseminating any material unrelated to the use of the Services, including (but not limited to): offers of goods or services for sale, unsolicited commercial e-mail, files that may damage any other person’s computing devices or software, content that may be offensive to any other users of the Services or the Websites, or material in violation of any law (including material that is protected by copyright or trade secrets which The User does not have the right to use).

When The User makes any communication on the Websites, The User represents that they are permitted to make such communication. LIAD is under no obligation to ensure that the communications on the Website are legitimate or that they are related only to the use of the Services. As with any other web-based forum, The User must exercise caution when using the communication tools available on the Websites. However, LIAD does reserve the right to remove any communication at any time in its sole discretion.

  • Indemnity:

The User indemnifies LIAD against all claims, costs, damage and loss arising from The User’s breach of any of these Terms or any obligation The User may have to LIAD, including (but not limited to) any costs relating to the recovery of any Access Fees that are due but have not been paid by The User.

4. CONFIDENTIALITY AND PRIVACY

  • Confidentiality:

Unless the relevant party has the prior written consent of the other or unless required to do so by law:

  • Each party will preserve the confidentiality of all Confidential Information of the other obtained in connection with these Terms. Neither party will, without the prior written consent of the other, disclose or make any Confidential Information available to any person, or use the same for its own benefit, other than as contemplated by these Terms.
  • Each party’s obligations under this clause will survive termination of these Terms.
  • The provisions of clauses 4.1 and 4.2 shall not apply to any information which:
    • is or becomes public knowledge other than by a breach of this clause;
    • is received from a third party who lawfully acquired it and who is under no obligation restricting its disclosure;
    • is in the possession of the receiving party without restriction in relation to disclosure before the date of receipt from the disclosing party; or
    • is independently developed without access to the Confidential Information.
  • Privacy:

LIAD maintains a privacy policy that sets out the parties’ obligations in respect of personal information. The User should read that policy at www.liadaccounting.com/privacy/ for information on how LIAD collects, uses and discloses personally identifiable information from its users. The User will be taken to have accepted that policy when The User accepts these Terms. By using the Services you agree to our use, collection and disclosure of personally identifiable information in accordance with the Privacy Policy.

  • The User’s Limited License of your User Content to LIAD:

We do not claim any ownership interest in your User Content, but we do need the right to use your User Content to the extent necessary to operate the Website and provide the Services, now and in the future. For example, if you leave comments on the LIAD blog or posts on the LIAD forum, we need your license to display that User Content on the Services, and we need the right to sublicense that User Content to our other Users so that they can view that User Content.

Therefore, by posting or distributing User Content to or through the Services, The User:

  • grants LIAD and its affiliates and subsidiaries a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable right to use, display, perform, reproduce, distribute, publish, modify, adapt, translate, and create derivative works from such User Content, in the manner in and for the purposes for which the Services from time to time use such User Content;
  • represents and warrants that:
    • LIAD owns and controls all of the rights to the User Content that you post or otherwise distribute, or you otherwise have the lawful right to post and distribute that User Content, to or through the Services; and
    • the use and posting or other transmission of such User Content does not violate these Terms and will not violate any rights of or cause injury to any person or entity.

If your User Content is intended for the use of other Users (for example, if you issue invoices to Customers or authorise third parties to access your User Content through the LIAD API), you also grant us and our affiliates and subsidiaries a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable right to sublicense such User Content to such Users for their use in connection with their use of the Services, as described in Section 4.4 of these Terms.

These licenses from you are non-exclusive because you have the right to use your User Content elsewhere. They are royalty-free because we are not required to pay you for the use of your User Content on the Services. And they are transferable because we need the right to transfer these licenses to any successor operator of the Services. Our rights to “modify, adapt, translate, and create derivative works from” are necessary because the normal operation of the Services does this to your User Content when it processes it for use in the Services.

  • LIAD’s Limited License of Content to The User:

LIAD grants The User a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-sub licensable license to access the Services and to view, copy and print the portions of the Content available to The User through the Services. Such license is subject to these Terms, and specifically conditioned upon the following:

  • you may only view, copy and print such portions of the Content for your own use;
  • you may not modify or otherwise make derivative works of the Content, or reproduce, distribute or display the Content (except for page caching) except as expressly permitted in these Terms;
  • you may not remove or modify any copyright, trademark, or other proprietary notices that have been placed in the Content;
  • you may not use any data mining, robots or similar data gathering or extraction methods; and
  • you may not use the Services or the Content other than for their intended purpose.

Except as expressly permitted above, any use of any portion of the Content without the prior written permission of its owner is strictly prohibited and will terminate the license granted in this Section, this Agreement and your account with us. Any such unauthorised use may also violate applicable laws, including without limitation copyright and trademark laws. Unless explicitly stated herein, nothing in these Terms may be construed as conferring any license to intellectual property rights, whether by estoppel, implication or otherwise. The license in this Section is revocable by LIAD at any time.

The User’s use of any Add-on is governed by the End User License Agreement that applies to that Add-on, and not by this Section of the Terms. That End User License Agreement is an agreement between The User and the provider of that Add-on, and you acknowledge that that End User License Agreement is a binding agreement between you and that provider. The User’s use of the Service through an Add-on, including any Content that may be delivered to you through the Add-on, is subject to this Section of the Terms.

The User represents and warrants that use of the Services and the Content will be consistent with this license and will not infringe or violate the rights of any other party or breach any contract or legal duty to any other parties, or violate any applicable law.

5. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

  • Backup of Data:

The User must maintain copies of all Data input into the Service.

LIAD expressly excludes liability for any loss of Data no matter how caused.

  • Third-party applications and your Data:

If The User enables third-party applications for use in conjunction with the Services, The User acknowledges that LIAD may allow the providers of those third-party applications to access Data as required for the inter-operation of such third-party applications with the Services. LIAD shall not be responsible for any disclosure, modification or deletion of Data resulting from any such access by third-party application providers.

7. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

  • To the maximum extent permitted by law, LIAD excludes all liability and responsibility to The User (or any other person) in contract, tort (including negligence), or otherwise, for any loss (including loss of information, Data, use of the Service, business interruption, profits and savings) or damage of any nature, resulting, directly or indirectly, from any use of, or reliance on, the Service or Website even if advised of the possibility of such loss or damage.
  • If The User suffers loss or damage as a result of LIAD’s negligence or failure to comply with these Terms, any claim against LIAD arising from LIAD’s negligence or failure will be limited in respect of any one incident, or series of connected incidents, to the Access Fees paid by The User in the previous 12-months. This section will survive and apply even if any remedy in these terms is found to have failed of its essential purpose. The

Note: The User acknowledges that the aforementioned limitations are an essential element of these Terms and a reasonable allocation of risk between the parties, and that in the absence of such limitations the pricing and other provisions in these Terms would be substantially different.

  • If The User is not satisfied with the Service, your sole and exclusive remedy is to terminate these Terms in accordance with Clause 8.

8. TERMINATION

In the event that The User elects to Terminate their subscription, LIAD may, at their sole discretion, maintain The User’s data for a limited period.

  • Free Trial policy:

When The User first signs up for access to the Services you can evaluate the Services under the defined trial usage conditions, with no obligation to continue to use the Services. If The User chooses to continue using the Services thereafter, you will be billed from the day you first added your billing details into the system. If The User chooses not to continue using the Services, you may delete your organisation at the end of the Trial Period.

  • Prepaid Subscriptions:

LIAD will not provide any refund for any remaining prepaid period for a prepaid Access Fee subscription.

  • No-fault termination:

These Terms will continue for the period covered by the Access Fee paid or payable under clause 3.1. At the end of each billing period these Terms will automatically continue for another period of the same duration as that period, provided The User continues to pay the prescribed Access Fee when due, unless either party terminates these Terms by giving notice to the other party at least 30-days before the end of the relevant payment period. Where the User pays through the Apple Store, cancellation of the auto-renewal can be done 24-hours prior to payment becoming due by turning off auto-renewal in The User’s Account Settings. If The User terminates these Terms they shall be liable to pay all relevant Access Fees on a pro-rata basis for each day of the then current period up to and including the day of termination of these Terms. If LIAD ceases to offer the Service, or if LIAD’s right or ability to offer the Service is restricted, suspended or terminated (whether pursuant to Laws or by App Marketplaces or other third parties), LIAD may immediately terminate or suspend these Terms. In such case, you will receive a pro-rated refund of the Access Fee, based on the unused portion of your Subscription Period.

  • Breach:

If The User:

  • breaches any of these Terms (including, without limitation, by non-payment of any Access Fees) and do not remedy the breach within 14-days after receiving notice of the breach if the breach is capable of being remedied;
