Terms of Service
By using the FormKeep.com web site (the "Site"), you are agreeing to be bound by the following terms and conditions ("Terms of Service"). Additional Data Processing Addendum terms are described at: https://formkeep.com/dpa
FormKeep.com ("FormKeep") provides online form creation, storage and team notification features. The Site provides form templates, user friendly guides, website code, and back-end notification features, including options for integrating forms into existing websites and tools for delineating required information within forms (the "Service").
FormKeep reserves the right to update and change the Terms of Service from time to time without notice. Any new features that augment or enhance the Site, including the release of new tools and resources relating to the Service, shall be subject to the Terms of Service. Continued use of the Service after any such changes shall constitute your consent to such changes. FormKeep makes no representation or warranty that any information provided, regardless of its source (the "Content"), is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. You can review the most current version of the Terms of Service at any time at: https://formkeep.com/terms
Violation of any of the terms below will result in the termination of your Account.

You may use our Service only if you can form a binding contract with FormKeep, and only in compliance with these Terms and all applicable laws. If you open an account on behalf of a company, organization, or other entity, then (a) "you" includes you and that entity, and (b) you represent and warrant that you are authorized to grant all permissions and licenses provided in these Terms and bind the entity to these Terms, and that you agree to these Terms on the entity's behalf.
You must be a human. Accounts registered by "bots" or other automated methods are not permitted.

Customers may access their FormKeep account data via an API (Application Program Interface). Any use of the API, including use of the API through a third-party product that accesses FormKeep, is bound by the terms of this agreement plus the following specific terms:
- You expressly understand and agree that FormKeep shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages, including but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible losses (even if FormKeep has been advised of the possibility of such damages), resulting from your use of the API or third-party products that access data via the API. Further limitations and clarifications of FormKeep's liability are found below in the sections titled "WARRANTY DISCLAIMERS" AND "LIMITATION OF LIABILITY."
- Abusive or excessively frequent requests to FormKeep via the API may result in the temporary or permanent suspension of your account's access to the API. FormKeep, in its sole discretion, will determine abuse or excessive usage of the API. FormKeep will make a reasonable attempt via email to warn the account owner prior to suspension.
- FormKeep reserves the right at any time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, your access to the API (or any part thereof) with or without notice.
Payment, Refunds, Upgrading and Downgrading Terms
All paid plans must enter a valid credit card. Free accounts are not required to provide credit card details.
An upgrade from the free plan to any paying plan will immediately bill you.
The Service is billed in advance on a monthly basis and is non-refundable. There will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service, upgrade/downgrade refunds, or refunds for months unused with an open account. In order to treat everyone equally, no exceptions will be made.
All fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties, excluding only United States (federal or state) taxes.
For any upgrade or downgrade in plan level, your credit card that you provided will automatically be charged the new rate on your next billing cycle.
Downgrading your Service may cause the loss of Content, features, or capacity of your Account. FormKeep does not accept any liability for such loss. For more information about liability limitations, see our sections below titled "Warranty Disclaimer" and "Limitation of Liability".
Cancellation and Termination
FormKeep, in its sole discretion, has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service, or any other FormKeep service, for any reason at any time.

FormKeep reserves the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time.
Modifications to the Service and Prices
FormKeep reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service (or any part thereof) with or without notice.
