You can use certain Docswave functions as paid services.
Software in Life provides Docswave services for free, but certain services and functions may be provided as paid services.
For example, the workflows in Docswave can be used among members for free, but certain functions such as adding boards can be used after signing up for Premium Service. Also, for the convenient function of integrating Docswave services with the service provider, for instance, you can choose to use the function by paying a fee.
If you would like to use the paid services and functions of Docswave provided by Software in Life, the fees concerned need to be paid in advance.
The payment methods for paid services and functions which Software in Life provides include credit card, bank transfer, etc. The payment method may depend on each paid service and function. For services which require monthly payment, payment will take place every month unless you stop using the services and personally request the cancellation of monthly payment.
The payment for paid services and functions of Docswave is provided and calculated on a monthly basis for the convenience of both purchase and payment as well as the calculation of units used. The units of purchase are provided as “seats” for paid services. A seat is a unit of purchase which grants one month of the paid service or function for one person. Seats can be purchased by the organization. If you purchase certain number of seats, the number of seats equivalent to the number of your organization’s members will be deducted every month.
Software in Life may require additional personal information from you in order to process your payment for the paid services and functions of Docswave, and you must provide accurate personal information required by Software in Life.
You may request refund for or raise objections to our paid services.
The typical process for refund request is as follows.
- - After deducting the number of used seats after you have paid for the paid services and functions provided by Docswave, Software in Life will charge a 10% processing fee on the remaining seats and then provide the final refund.
- - If you request refund within fourteen days of your payment for paid services and functions, refund can be proceeded by cancelling the payment for which refund is requested.
However, if Software in Life limits your service use or terminates the agreement due to your violation of this Terms of Service, Software in Life shall not proceed with any refund whatsoever.
소In the following cases, Software in Life will proceed to a full refund.
- If you were unable to use Docswave services due to disabled service or other causes attributable to Software in Life, even when you have fulfilled the minimum technology requirements suggested by Software in Life
- If the services you paid for were not provided
- If the provided service you paid for is different from as written in text or ads, or if the difference is substantial
- If the normal use of the paid service is remarkably difficult due to the defect of the service provided
Refund, however, is only possible if payment for the paid service was made within three months.
You may raise objections to the service charge.
However, your objection must be raised within one month you became aware of the cause and within three months the cause took place.
For mischarges or full refunds, Software in Life will provide the refund using the same method the payment was processed with. However, if it is impossible to provide the refund using the same method or in the case of partial refund due to cancellation of service before its termination, refund shall be proceeded in a separate method set forth by Software in Life. For a refund attributable to you, you will be responsible for the fee necessary for processing the refund. For a refund attributable to Software in Life, Software in Life will be responsible for the fee necessary for processing the refund.
You are obligated to confirm item details and transaction conditions before purchasing any paid services or functions of Docswave. You will be held responsible for all losses and damages caused by failing to confirm the content and transaction conditions for the item of purchase.
In this regard, Software in Life may confirm whether the transaction was made properly and lawfully. Software in Life may suspend the transaction process until the lawfulness of your payment method is confirmed or it may cancel the transaction. Behaviors such as repetitive purchases without the intention of purchasing or using paid services and functions or accessing the system using abnormal methods are also prohibited.
When a user under the age of applicable legal age uses the paid services and functions of Docswave, the legal guardian’s consent to the agreement is necessary for successfully purchasing the item. For an agreement for which the legal guardian’s consent is not obtained, the user (under the age of applicable legal age) himself or the legal guardian may cancel the agreement.
