PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY BEFORE CONTINUING
BEFORE USING THIS WEB APP, YOU SHOULD CAREFULLY READ THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS LICENCE AGREEMENT. BY USING THIS WEB APP YOU ARE AGREEING TO BE LEGALLY BOUND BY THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS LICENCE AGREEMENT AND AGREE TO BECOME A LICENSEE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS LICENCE AGREEMENT YOU SHOULD LEAVE THE WEB APP AND NOT DOWNLOAD OR USE THE SOFTWARE.
We are Zulogic Limited, trading as Cloud Stop Motion, a limited company registered in England under company number 05388029 with Registered Address at 380a Larkfield, Aylesford, England, ME20 6RZ, and our main trading address at Church Farm, Ulcombe, Kent, ME17 1DN. We are the Licensor of the Cloud Stop Motion Software and the controller of cloud-based storage space on which we will agree an Allowance of storage space (“Storage”) for the storage of the work output created using our Software (the “Output”).
When you accept the terms and conditions of this Licence Agreement by using this web-app, we, as Licensor, shall immediately grant you (the “Licensee”) a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable licence to Use Cloud Stop Motion software, and any and all accompanying documentation (the “Software”) the Storage and an agreed Storage Allowance (your “Allowance”) for personal, home and academic purposes, subject to the terms and conditions of this Licence Agreement.
If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you. This might be due to unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because a credit reference we have obtained for you does not meet our minimum requirements, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.
If you are purchasing the Software and Allowance as a consumer, you have certain additional rights that are not applicable to organisations or to educational establishments. Clause 7 below applies only to consumers and is in addition to other rights and obligations set out in this agreement.
1. Use of the Software and Storage Allowance
1.1 In this Licence Agreement, “Use” shall be defined as opening the web-app, for the processing of the system instructions or statements contained in the Software. “Use” shall also include copying the Software in machine-readable form for the purposes of understanding the contents of such machine-readable material (which may be known as reverse-engineering).
1.2 We agree to allow you to use a maximum amount of Storage applicable to the fee that you have paid us. Your use of that Allowance will be subject to industry recognised reasonable fair use.
1.3 Children under the age of 13 years will need an adult to open an account for them.
1.4 Free organisational accounts are only available for schools and qualifying organisations. We reserve the right to close any free organisation accounts which do not meet our criteria.

1.7 Free accounts that have not been logged into within three months will be deleted. If you unsubscribe from our emails you will not be warned in advance or notified of this action.

6. Your Statutory Rights

If any part of the limitations or exclusions in this Licence Agreement is held to be void or unenforceable, such part shall be deemed to be deleted from this Licence Agreement and the remainder of the limitation or exclusion shall continue in full force and effect.
