3. Information about us
3.1 Dataships Limited is a private limited company (company no.: 670408), registered in Ireland (referred to as “Dataships”, “we”, “us” and “our”) and having an address at 12 Sans Souci Park, Booterstown Avenue, Blackrock, Dublin, A94 W9X9, Ireland. 3.2 If you wish to contact us, you can do so at firstname.lastname@example.org.
4.1 In order to sign-up to use the Services (whether that is under a Free Trial or otherwise), the Client may be asked to create an account with Dataships and provide us with certain information requested as part of the account registration process or which is necessary for us to provide the Client with certain Services. The Client represents and warrants that all information provided, now or in the future, is accurate and that it will maintain the accuracy of such information.

5. Pricing and Cancellations
5.1 Our Services fall into two main categories, the ‘Collect’ and ‘Comply’ products. ‘Collect’ Services
5.2 The ‘Collect’ Services are subject to different Pricing Plans which are typically priced on the basis of how many channel audiences are sought, the number of orders the Client’s store has over a 12 month period, and whether the Client will pay monthly or annually. There are also custom Pricing Plans available for ‘Collect’ Services. Subject to the terms herein, the ‘Collect’ Services provided under a Pricing Plan will be provided for the duration of the billing cycle subscribed to and are non-refundable. 5.3 Pricing Plans for the ‘Collect’ Services are billed through Shopify in accordance with the agreed billing cycle (which is usually monthly or annually) and the fees payable will appear on the Client’s Shopify invoice and must be paid by the due date specified therein. 5.4 If a Client cancels their Pricing Plan for the ‘Collect’ Services before the end of the applicable billing cycle, they will continue to have access to the Services subscribed to under the Pricing Plan for the remainder of that billing cycle. Cancellations will not take effect until the end of the billing cycle. 5.5 If a Client requests to upgrade their Pricing Plan or they reach the threshold of orders for a higher Pricing Plan, the Client will be asked to confirm that it wishes to move to an upgraded Pricing Plan. Once the Client approves this, it will be given access to the upgraded Services promptly and the billing cycle for the upgraded Pricing Plan shall begin. The Client’s next Shopify invoice shall set out the fees payable for the period subscribed to for each Pricing Plan. 5.6 In the event that the Client reaches or exceeds the applicable limit of orders covered by its Pricing Plan subscribed to and it has not provided its approval to be moved to an upgraded Pricing Plan, Dataships will continue to maintain the audience of contacts collected but it may cease syncing data with the Platform or other third-party Automation Tools or otherwise providing the Client with Services not subscribed to until the Client approves the upgrade.
5.7 There are various Pricing Plans for our ‘Comply’ Services which are typically priced on the basis of the particular Services offered under a plan with billing cycles of monthly, six monthly, and annually available. 5.8 The fees payable under a Pricing Plan for the ‘Comply’ services are payable in advance of the start of the applicable billing cycle and shall be paid in EUR, USD, or GBP. If a Client wishes to cancel their Pricing Plan for the ‘Comply Services’, it must provide Dataships with at least thirty (30) days advance notice and the cancellation takes effect at the end of that notice period and the Client will we be refunded the fees for the remainder of the billing cycle. 5.9 If Dataships fails to receive an amount by its applicable due date (e.g. payment is refused), Dataships will ask the Client to provide alternative payment details. If the Client fails to provide this to us within fourteen (14) days, without prejudice to any other rights or remedies available, Dataships shall be entitled (but not obliged) to:
(a) suspend the Client’s use of the Services with immediate effect, and in the event that payment is not received within a further fourteen (14) day period from that suspension date the Client’s subscription will be terminated; and/or (b) charge the Client interest on the overdue amount, from the due date up to the date of payment, at the rate of eight per cent (8%) per annum of the overdue amount.
5.10 At any time, Dataships may change the Services and applicable pricing for a Pricing Plan, including changing the volume of contacts for a particular ‘Collect’ Pricing band, adding new Services and removing Services. If the Client is not happy with the change, it can upgrade to an alternative Pricing Plan or it can cancel in accordance with the terms set out in this clause 3. 5.11 The Client acknowledges that it shall be responsible for the payment of any taxes due under these Conditions to which it may be subject under applicable laws.
