Ownership and Responsibility for Your Apps

We license on a per named user (i.e. each individual person by email address) basis by default. We do not allow generic/shared user accounts and we do not offer concurrent (floating) licensing. As such there is no concept of “reusing licenses”, this doesn’t apply given the status-driven, named user nature of our billing. Any non-compliance will be raised with you, and ongoing failures to rectify your user license assignments will result in account suspension.

(b) Subscription and Service Fees.

Any additional subscriptions and/or services that you select are provided at the rates set forth in your agreed customer rates contract. 

(c) Invoicing and Automatic Renewal.  

My Business Apps bills on the first day of every month (1month in advance) for all existing users and services enabled on your account. We will promptly generate invoices for this billing, and seek payment by bank transfer within 21days of date of invoice. Your My Business Apps licenses, subscription and/or services will automatically renew on the first day of each month until you cancel your account, which is done by emailing our support team.

Optional paid services such additional User Licenses, Custom Mobile Apps, Bolt-ons or features provided by My Business Apps will be charged on a pre-pay basis the day that you sign up for an upgrade and will cover the use of that service until the end of the Month then added to the standard subscription billing you receive monthly.

All funds will be paid in Great British Pounds (GBP). 

(d) Value Added Tax, Sales Tax and Other Amounts.

Unless otherwise expressly stated, all fees are exclusive of local value added tax, sales tax, other taxes, duties and charges imposed or levied in connection with these Terms (“Taxes”).
