If you fail to pay for your paid account on time, we reserve the right to suspend it or restrict your access to our free items.Free trials: textcontent.ai might provide a free trial subscription. If you use a free trial membership and cancel it before the trial time ends, you will lose all rights to any remaining free trial period. In most cases, we will only provide one free trial per user.

Let’s try to sort things out first. Before filing a claim against textcontent.ai , you agree to try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting you via email. If you and we cannot resolve the dispute informally, then a party seeking to bring a formal proceeding must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to textcontent.ai should be sent to digitally induced GmbH, Scharpenbergerstr. 96, 58256 Ennepetal, Attn: Legal Department. The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought. If textcontent.ai and you do not resolve the claim within sixty (60) calendar days after receiving the Notice, you or textcontent.ai may commence a formal proceeding. Judicial forum for disputes.
You and textcontent.ai agree that any judicial proceeding to resolve claims relating to these terms or our products will be brought in courts of North Rhine-Westphalia (Nordrhein-Westfalen), Germany, subject to the mandatory arbitration provisions below. Both you and textcontent.ai consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in such courts. If you reside in a country with laws that give consumers the right to bring disputes in their local courts (for example, European Union member states), this paragraph doesn’t affect those requirements.IF YOU’RE A U.S. RESIDENT, YOU ALSO AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISIONS:We both agree to arbitrate. You and textcontent.ai agree to resolve any claims relating to these terms or our products through final and binding arbitration by a single arbitrator, except as set forth under “Exceptions to agreement to arbitrate” below. This includes disputes arising out of or relating to interpretation or application of this “Mandatory Arbitration Provisions” section, including its enforceability, revocability, or validity.Opt-out of agreement to arbitrate.
You have the right to opt out of these arbitration provisions (and any future changes to arbitration provisions) by emailing email@example.com within 30 days of agreeing to a version of these terms containing arbitration terms (however, if you agreed to a previous version of these terms of service that contain an arbitration provision, you are still bound by those arbitration provisions).
The American Arbitration Association (AAA) will administer the arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. The arbitration will be held in Germany, or any other location we agree to. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by textcontent.ai or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or textcontent.ai is entitled.Arbitration fees and incentives. The AAA rules will govern the payment of all arbitration fees. textcontent.ai will pay all arbitration fees for individual arbitration for non-frivolous claims less than $100.
textcontent.ai will seek reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration.Exceptions to agreement to arbitrate. Either you or textcontent.ai may assert claims, if they qualify, in the courts in Germany. Either party may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the products or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above. If the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, you agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Germany, to resolve your claim. NO CLASS ACTIONS. You may only resolve disputes with us individually.
That is, you may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations aren’t allowed.Severability. If the “NO CLASS ACTIONS” paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Mandatory Arbitration Provisions” section will be deemed void. If you are found to have a non-waivable right to bring a specific claim or request a specific form of relief that an arbitrator lacks the authority to redress or award under this “Mandatory Arbitration Provisions” section, including public injunctive relief, then only that particular claim or request may be brought in court, and you and we agree that litigation of this claim or request will be stayed pending the resolution of any other claims or requests for relief in arbitration.Controlling LawThe German law will govern these terms except for its conflicts of laws principles. However, some countries (including those in the European Union) have laws that require agreements to be governed by the local laws of the consumer’s country. This paragraph doesn’t override those laws. Miscellaneous Legal Terms Entire Agreement
These terms make up the entire agreement between you and textcontent.ai , Inc., regarding your use of our products. They supersede any prior agreements.Waiver, Severability, and Assignmenttextcontent.ai ’s failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision (other than the “NO CLASS ACTIONS” paragraph) is unenforceable, the remaining provisions will remain in full effect, and an enforceable term will be substituted with the goal of reflecting our intent as closely as possible.
You may not assign any of your rights or obligations under these terms, and any such attempt will be void. textcontent.ai may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries or any successor in interest of any business associated with the products.Modifications to These TermsWe may amend these conditions from time to time, for example, to reflect changes to the law, new regulations, and changes to our products.If an update significantly negatively affects your use of our products or your legal rights as a user of our products, we’ll notify you before the update’s effective date by sending an email to the email address associated with your account or via an in-product notification. We will give you at least 30 days after that notice before the update takes effect. We may also update these terms in ways that won’t significantly negatively affect your rights.
