Terms and Conditions

1. Introduction

These terms and conditions govern your use of BrandStruck content available via brandstruck.co; by using this website, you accept these terms and conditions in full. If you disagree with these terms and conditions or any part of these terms and conditions, you must not use this website.

These terms and conditions are only available in the English language.

In these terms we use the term “BrandStruck” to refer to our website at brandstruck.co and our other mobile and online digital apps and services.

BrandStruck uses cookies. By using this website and agreeing to these terms and conditions, you consent to our use of cookies. Each Registered User grants BrandStruck consent to send commercial electronic messages whilst undertaking standard customers service programs. Please refer to BrandStruck Privacy Policy for more information

These terms and conditions replace all previous terms and conditions for BrandStruck. We may update these terms and conditions for legal or regulatory reasons, or to reflect changes in our services or business practices. We will provide notice of any significant changes via email. If you are a BrandStruck Registered User, any changes to our terms and conditions will become effective from the date of your or your company’s next payment following the change unless we notify you otherwise. If you are not a BrandStruck Registered User, any changes will become effective as soon as we post them on BrandStruck.

2. Registration

Each registration is for a single user only. Even if you buy a subscription package for multiple users (“Agency” for 2-9 users or “Corporate” for up to 70 users), each registration is for a single user. When buying “Agency” and “Corporate” packages, you will get a code and a link to share with your co-employees, for whom you are buying access to BrandStruck, which will allow them registration. This code can be shared only with people, who are hired by the same company as yours. You should never share this link and / or code with anybody from outside your company as it will mean breaching these terms & conditions.

On registration, you will choose a user name and password (“ID”). You are not allowed to share your ID or give access to BrandStruck content through your ID to anyone else. We do not allow multiple users on a network or within an organization to use the same ID. We may cancel or suspend your access to BrandStruck or charge you an additional user fee, if you share your ID with other people. You may not create additional registration or subscription accounts for the benefit of others or with the aim of avoiding our use of IDs to control access to and use of BrandStruck.

You are responsible for all use of BrandStruck made by you or anyone else using your ID and for preventing unauthorised use of your ID. If you believe there has been any breach of security such as the disclosure, theft or unauthorised use of your ID or any payment information, you must notify BrandStruck immediately by e-mailing us at brandstruck@brandstruck.co. We recommend that you do not select an obvious user password (such as your name) and that you change it regularly.

If you provide us with an email address that will result in any messages we may send you being sent to you via a network or device operated or owned by a third party then you promise that you are entitled to receive those messages. You also agree that we may stop sending messages to you without notifying you.
