Terms of Service

Last updated 29th May 2020

Introduction

These Terms (“Terms”) constitute a legally binding agreement (“Agreement”) between you and White Spaces. This agreement covers your use of all services (“Services”) across whitespaces.app and all subdomains (collectively, “Site”).

The terms, “Aduro Creative”, “White Spaces”, “we”, “us” or “our”, refers to Aduro Creative, Unit 5, Five Eastfields Avenue, SW18 1FU, London.

Our Privacy Policy covers the information we handle, and what we do with it.

Any and all payments are handled by Stripe (“Payments Processor”).

White Spaces Services

White Spaces is a cloud based screenwriting tool that allows users (“Users”) to work anywhere in the world on their screenplays and related files (“Document” or collectively “Documents”).

Changes

White Spaces reserves the right to modify these Terms at any time in accordance with this provision. Alterations will cause the ‘Last Updated’ date at the top to be updated. We will also email Users up to 30 days before the Terms come into effect. Each time you access White Spaces, you are automatically bound by the latest Terms Revision.

Creating an Account

You must register an account (“Account”) to access and use White Spaces. If you are registering an account for a business, charity or other legal entity, you are guaranteeing the authority to legally bind that entity to these Terms.

Your Account information must be entered accurately during the registration and kept up to date at all times.

You must not register for more than one account on White Spaces unless receiving explicit permission from us. You must not transfer your account to someone else at any point.

You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and should not disclose your credentials to anyone else at any point. You must immediately notify White Spaces at any point if you think your account has been compromised.

White Spaces will never request you to share your password or information given to our Payments Processor through email or any other Customer Support Services (“Support Services”).

White Spaces may enable features that allow other members to take actions that affect your Documents. For example, during collaborative editing. These features do not require that you share your credentials with anyone else.

Documents

White Spaces may allow you to create, upload, edit, delete and download Documents such as text, photos, audio, videos or other materials on or through our Site.

Documents created on our Site are exclusively owned by the User that creates them (the “Creator”). The Creator owns all intellectual property of their Documents forever, even if the Document is shared with other Users.

The Creator may choose to delete their Document at any time. White Spaces holds no liability for the loss of deleted Documents even though we will hold backups for a limited time.

We do our utmost to protect the reliability of our Site and ensure your Documents are saved consistently and maintain integrity. We hold no liability over any data loss, data inaccuracy or data duplication as a result of actions outside of our reasonable control.

Certain features on our Site may allow you to work on Documents with other Users. White Spaces holds no liability over any data loss, data inaccuracy or data duplication as a result of actions of other Users that you have invited to work on your Documents.

Subscriptions

Each User on White Spaces will have a set Trial Period (the “Trial”) to test the Site and discern if the Services meet the Users expectation.

At the end of the Trial, the User has an opportunity to enter an agreement with us to use our Services for a fixed monthly, or yearly fee (the “Fee”). The Payments Processor will handle taking the payment, storing card details and automatically processing any future payments (the entire process is known as the “Transaction”).

If the User decides not to execute the Transaction, they may be blocked from accessing certain features on White Spaces until they choose to.

If the User decides to execute the Transaction, the User becomes a paid member (a “Subscriber” with a “Subscription”) to the Services and can use the Services as denoted in their chosen Subscription.

Repeat Payments

The Subscriber will be charged the agreed Fee at the time interval as stated by their Subscription. The Transaction will be processed automatically by our Payments Processor. Each Transaction will generate a receipt and an invoice that will be sent to the Subscriber through email.

Cancellation and Refunds

A Subscriber may cancel their Subscription at any point. They will not receive a refund for their Subscription and the Subscription will be active until it’s expiry date.

Subscriptions will be cancelled automatically after 7 days if the last Transaction failed to complete.

White Spaces does not require an active Subscription to store data and data loss will not occur due to Subscription cancellation.

Restarts

If a Subscribe decides to restart their Subscription after cancelling, they are able to do so with no penalty.

Termination of Accounts

This agreement is in effect as long as the User has an Account on the Site. You may terminate this Agreement at any point by closing your Account on the Site.

White Spaces may immediately terminate this agreement and/or stop your access to the Site if you are found to be in breach of the Terms.

When this Agreement has been terminated, you are not entitled to a restoration of any of your Documents.

Liability

White Spaces is liable under statutory provisions for intent and gross negligence by us, our legal representative, directors or other vicarious agents. White Spaces is liable for any negligent breaches of essential contractual obligations by us, our legal representatives, directors, or other vicarious agents; such liability is limited to the typically occurring foreseeable damages. Any additional liability of White Spaces is excluded.
