The party submitting an application to become a Voluum user (the “Client”)
Voluum is a proprietary web application for measuring web traffic and reporting, which is hosted on Codewise’s servers and made available to the Clients through the website: voluum.com (the “Website”). To use Voluum an internet connection and a web browser with Java support is required. To purchase the use of Voluum services (the “Subscription”), the Client have to in particular choose relevant term, during which he wants to have access to these services (the: “Subscription Period”).
2.1. Codewise grants to the Client a non-exclusive, non-assignable, and non-transferable right during the Term (as defined in section 12) to use Voluum in accordance with all of the terms and conditions set forth herein.
2.2. Before issuing the first invoice by Codewise, the Client is obliged to state its company name (including the company’s legal form), an address of the company, TAX/VAT ID, a first and last name of the person authorized to register an account on behalf of and for the Client, as well as contact data of the Client.
2.3. Access to Voluum requires logging in using Client’s email address and password. The Client’s email address shall be the one set up on the Client’s website domain name. Otherwise the person registering the Voluum account shall prove on request from Codewise (especially by sending a written authorization) that she/he is entitled to act on behalf of and for the Client. Codewise can demand such proof at any time.
2.4. The Client is solely responsible for their use of Voluum. Client shall not permit any 3rd party to use or gain access to Voluum and shall use reasonable security measures to protect against unauthorized usage and/or access. The Client is solely responsible for use of Voluum by their employees or any unauthorized person.
2.5. Codewise shall not access the Clients’ accounts for purposes other than administrative or support.
2.6. As a general rule, any Client can have only one account at the same time unless otherwise agreed by Codewise. The owner of the account is the Client whose data is provided according to the point 2.2 of these Terms and Conditions and indicated on the invoices issued by Codewise. The Client must not open a new Voluum account if there are any outstanding balance for Voluum use. If it does, however, it authorizes Codewise to charge the amount due of a previous account from the Client’s credit card connected with the new account. Codewise is obliged to start provision of the Voluum services only if all due amounts are paid by the Client.
2.7. If the person acting on behalf of one Client, will open a new Voluum account on behalf of another Client, Codewise can refuse to provide Voluum services for that another Client at its sole discretion. The second Client shall have no claims against Codewise related to refusal to provide services.
2.8. Any Client is obliged to use its business credit cards with regard to chosen payment method. If the Client choose the consumer card instead of business credit card, it undertakes to repay Codewise all costs, expenses or lost benefits connected with payments made by a consumer card as well as it waives its right to claim damages, especially in the amount of commission paid in the higher amount that stated in the relevant law provisions. The Client also authorizes Codewise to charge relevant amounts from its credit card.
2.9. In order to enable the Client to use Voluum and handle the Clients’ campaigns, Codewise provides the Client with a domain individually assigned to the Client’s account (the “Dedicated Domain”).
Codewise is the sole owner of the Dedicated Domain. The Dedicated Domain is assigned to the Client solely for use of Voluum services for the Subscription Period. The Client is not entitled to use the Dedicated Domain for purposes other than using Voluum during the Subscription Period.
Codewise reserves the right to refuse to grant the Client the Dedicated Domain or to block the Dedicated Domain if the Client breaches the Terms and Conditions, in particular if the Client uses the Dedicated Domain for illegal purposes. The Client is solely liable for all activities related to the Dedicated Domain, within all possible use, including content that the Dedicated Domain redirects to.
2.10. Codewise may equip the Dedicated Domain with an SSL certificate in order to use HTTPS in the Client’s campaigns using the Dedicated Domain. Codewise is a sole owner of an SSL certificate.
Codewise reserves the right to choose an SSL certificate for the Dedicated Domain, what the Client accepts. The Client is not entitled to request that Codewise shall choose an SSL certificate specified by the Client.
The Client will be entitled to use an SSL certificate within the Dedicated Domain for the Subscription Period exclusively for using Voluum. The Client is not authorized to use this certificate for any other purposes.
The Client is solely responsible for the use of the SSL certificate and for ensuring compliance with the Terms and Conditions and the provisions of applicable law.
Codewise reserves the right to refuse to grant the Client an SSL certificate for the Dedicated Domain or to deactivate an SSL certificate if the Client does not use this certificate over 60 days or if the Client breaches the Terms and Conditions or uses an SSL certificate in the unlawful way.
2.11. Codewise provides the Client with a possibility to add their own domain to the Client’s account (the“Custom Domain”) as well as with a possibility of using a SSL for the Custom Domain. The feature might be an additional package not included in the pricing plan (for more information, go to ‘Pricing’ section).
2.12. In order to upgrade to the custom plan with the Custom Domain and the SSL for the Custom Domain, the Client needs to follow the instructions included in doc.voluum.com in section ‘Enabling SSL Custom Domain’. In particular, the Custom Domain should be CNAME’d to the Dedicated Domain in order to work properly. By CNAME’ing the Custom Domain to the Dedicated Domain by the Client for use of Voluum Services, the Client authorizes Codewise to request for the SSL certificate in order to use HTTPS in the Client’s campaigns using the Custom Domain, on the Client’s demand. In order to start using the SSL certificate for the Custom Domain, the Client has to request it manually using the Voluum panel.
2.13. Upgrade to the custom plan (with the SSL certificate for the Custom Domain) may require an additional monthly payment (for more information, go to ‘Pricing’ section).
2.14. The Client is the sole owner of the Custom Domain.
2.15. The Client can use the Custom Domain with the SSL solely for use of Voluum services by the Client for the Subscription Period. The Client is not entitled to use the Custom Domain for purposes other than using Voluum during the Subscription Period. Codewise reserves the right to refuse the Client’s request for using the Custom Domain or block the Custom Domain from Voluum services if the Client breaches the Terms and Conditions, in particular if the Client uses the Custom Domain for illegal purposes. The Client is solely liable for all activities related to the Custom Domain, within all possible use, including content that Custom Domain redirects to.
2.16. The Client can delete or replace the Custom Domain with the SSL certificate within the Subscription Period only upon Codewise’s prior approval. Such changes (deletion or replacement of the Custom Domain for which the SSL certificate was issued) may require an additional payment as set out on case by case basis by Codewise. Codewise reserves also the right to refuse the Client’s request for deletion or replacing the Custom Domain, to which the SSL certificate was issued, to another/new Custom Domain, for any reason that Codewise finds valid, including but not limited to where the Client’s request for changing or replacing the Custom Domain took place more than once in the billing period. In order to get more information in this matter the Client should contact Codewise’s Customer Support Team.
2.17. Codewise reserves the right to choose an SSL certificate for the Custom Domain. The Client is not entitled to demand that Codewise chooses an SSL certificate specified by the Client. The Client is entitled to use the SSL certificate issued for the Custom Domain for the Subscription Period exclusively for using Voluum. The Client is not authorized to use this certificate for any other purposes.
2.18. The Client is solely responsible for the use of the SSL certificate and for ensuring compliance with the Terms and Conditions and the provisions of applicable law.
2.19. Codewise reserves the right to refuse the Client’s request for the SSL certificate for the Custom Domain. Codewise has also right to deactivate the SSL certificate when the Client does not use this certificate over 60 days or if the Client breaches the Terms and Conditions or uses the SSL certificate in the unlawful way.
2a. The Trial Period
2a.1. Upon registration, the Client may be provided with a trial period of using Services (the “Trial Period”).

The Client can do it manually in their Voluum account settings. In any case the Trial Period expires at the date of the payment by the Client for the full access of the chosen plan.
2a.5. The Trial Period also expires automatically if the Client tries to purchase full access to any monthly or yearly plan offered by Codewise according to point 2a.4 above but there is a payment failure regarding the chosen plan. In this case, however, no charge shall be made by Codewise after the Trial Period expires.
2a.6. If the Client does not submit their declaration regarding termination of the Services during the Trial Period, they shall be charged by Codewise for the amounts relevant to using monthly plan chosen in the Trial Period.

The number of the Events included in the Client’s Subscription depends on the chosen plan.

Events and Overages are calculated on the monthly basis. On individual basis Codewise reserves the right not to take into account and measure any Events that exceed the limit specified in the chosen plan.

On individual basis Codewise reserves the right to sign an additional agreement (the “Insertion Orders”), in particular with Clients who choose Subscription Period longer than 12 months and on individually priced plans. Codewise reserves also the right to apply discounts on any Clients’ Subscriptions or Subscription Fees.
15.7.

15.14. According to the relevant payment providers’ policies some of the transactions may demand Strong Customer Authentication (SCA), which means that electronic payment is performed with multi-factor authentication to increase the security of such a payment.
15.15. By accepting the Terms and Conditions, the Client concludes with Codewise the agreement on which basis it authorises Codewise to charge each month variable recurring amounts from the Client’s card in order to the payment of subscription fee and prospective Overages amounts without further action required from the Client (merchant-initiated transactions). In this case, only the first transaction shall generally demand SCA.
15.16. Variable recurring amounts are charged from the Client’s card on the basis of the chosen plan and the amount of Overages calculated according to point 15.3 above.

16.2.
