These Terms apply to any Contract (as defined at clause 9) formed between us relating to your purchase of a subscription plan for the Services (“Plan”) regardless of the level of Plan that you purchase.

Please read these Terms carefully and make sure that you understand them before purchasing a Plan. Please note that before you purchase a Plan, or obtain the benefit of the Services, you will be asked to agree to these Terms. If you refuse to accept these Terms, you will not be able to purchase a Plan or obtain the benefit of the Services.
We may amend these Terms from time to time as set out in clause 10. Please check this page regularly to ensure that you are familiar with and understand the terms which will apply at that time.
These Terms were most recently updated on 28 March 2020.
These Terms, and any Contract between us, are only in the English language.
1.1 We are Tebex Limited t/a Buycraft and Tebex, a company registered in England and Wales under company number 08129184 and with our registered office at 14 Park Row, Nottingham, England, NG1 6GR. Our VAT number is GB167189962. Our site, and Buycraft, are both operated by us.
1.2 You may contact us by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you wish to give us formal notice of anything under these Terms, please see clause 18.
2.1 In consideration of you paying our fees in accordance with these Terms, you may obtain the benefit of the Services during the Plan Period (defined in clause 2.2 below).
2.2 Your Plan will start on the date on which you sign up for the Plan on our site (“Start Date”) and, subject to earlier termination in accordance with these Terms, will continue until you cancel your Plan, or change to another Plan, in accordance with these Terms (“Plan Period”).
2.3 We may refuse to accept any order by you to purchase a Plan at any time at our discretion.
2.4 We may suspend or cancel your Plan at any time at our discretion for any reason. Except where we suspend or cancel your Plan as a consequence of your breach of these Terms (in which case no refund will be given), if you have paid a Plan Fee that relates to a period of time which extends beyond the date of suspension or cancellation, we will refund to you a pro-rata proportion of the Plan Fee in respect of each day paid for, but for which you have not received the benefit of the Services.
3.1 The following fees and commissions are payable:
3.1.1 a monthly subscription fee for your Plan as set out on the pricing page of our site located at www.tebex.io/pricing; and
3.1.2 if you are selling Products through Tebex Checkout (in each case as defined in clause 12), commissions and/or transaction fees as further detailed in clause 12.5,
together “the Plan Fees”.
Please note that some of our Plans provide that your Plan Fees may vary depending upon the number of transactions processed through Your Webstore (as defined at clause 11).
3.2 We take all reasonable care to ensure that the Plan Fees are correct but will notify you if we become aware that we have made a mistake on our site or in any other communication to you.
3.3 We may change the Plan Fees from time to time by updating our site and by notifying you by email and, subject to clause 3.5, these changes will take effect from your next Billing Date (as defined at clause 4.2).
3.4 The Plan Fees, unless otherwise indicated on the site, excludes any sales or other local tax which shall, if applicable, be payable by you in addition at the rate from time to time in force.
3.5 If we notify you of a mistake (as referred to in clause 3.1), or change our Plan Fees (as referred to in clause 3.3), and you no longer wish to proceed with your Plan, you may cancel your Plan in accordance with clause 5.3 below.
4.1 You can only pay the Plan Fees using the payment methods listed on our site. Where your Plan Fees require the payment of recurring monthly payments, we may require that you pay using a recurring payment method provided by third party payment providers such as PayPal. Details of such services are available on our site.
4.2 The Plan Fees (if applicable) are payable monthly in advance with the first payment being payable on the Start Date and each subsequent payment being payable on, or on the date immediately preceding (in cases where it is not possible to process your payment on the same date) the same date of each subsequent month during the Plan Period thereafter (the “Billing Date”). Your payment for the Plan Fees will be processed automatically on the Billing Date using the payment details that you provide to us from time to time and we will confirm to you by e-mail that this has happened.
4.3 Transactions made through our site will be in Pounds Sterling. If you wish to pay with any other currency, the exchange rate and any additional transaction charges will be controlled and applied by the issuing bank and not us. We will not be liable for any additional charges incurred in respect of this.
5.1 We offer a number of different Plans and the Services that we provide to you will depend upon the level of Plan that you purchase. A brief summary of the key features of each Plan, and the Plan Fees applicable to each Plan, can be viewed on the pricing page of our site located at www.tebex.io/pricing.

We may withdraw any Free Service at any time at our discretion. We do not offer any warranties (whether express or implied) to you in relation to any Free Services.
5.3 If you wish to change your Plan (either to upgrade or downgrade to another Plan), or cancel your Plan, you may do so at any time through accessing your account on our site or by sending us a written request by e-mail. We will aim to respond to any such request, and notify you by email that we have processed your requested change or cancellation, within 48 hours. Clause 5.4 below sets out applicable terms in relation to your Plan Fees in the event that you wish to change or cancel your Plan.
5.4 Where you change your Plan (either to upgrade or downgrade to another Plan) or cancel your Plan by following the procedure set out in clause 5.3 above, the following shall terms shall apply in respect of the Plan Fees paid or payable by you:
5.4.1 where you upgrade your Plan from a Free Service, then your new Plan will take effect from the date on which you sign up for your new Plan and pay the Plan Fees, and this date shall be deemed to be the Start Date for your Plan and will be the date by reference to which your Billing Date will be determined;
5.4.2 where you upgrade your Plan from one ‘paid for’ Plan to another (for example from our ‘Premium’ Plan to our ‘Ultimate’ Plan), your Billing Date will not change, but you will be charged a pro-rata amount which reflects the difference between the Plan Fees applicable to your new Plan less the Plan Fees already paid by you for your existing Plan in respect of the period from the date on which you upgraded your Plan until your next Billing Date;
5.4.3 where you downgrade your Plan, either from one ‘paid for’ Plan to another or from a ‘paid for’ Plan to a Free Service, the change in your Plan shall take effect from your next Billing Date and no refund shall be given in respect of any Plan Fees already paid by you prior to the date of the change;

Where possible we will procure, by any mechanism we deem appropriate, that such VAT amounts are remitted directly to the appropriate tax authority. However we reserve the right to require You to remit such amounts where we are unable to do so for any reason. In such situations, we will procure that the relevant VAT amounts collected from Customers are paid to You for onward remittance.
12.9 Funds from purchases of Products made on Your Webstore (net of all applicable fees and commissions) will be made available in your Wallet not less than 7 days after the payment has been received from the Customer.

If the funds from the Customer’s purchase have not yet been remitted to you then we (via Hyperwallet) will use those funds for the Customer refund. If the funds from the Customer’s purchase have already been remitted to you, we may in our discretion either require you to transfer such funds back to us (via Hyperwallet) before the refund is processed to the Customer on your behalf or we may set-off the amount of the refund against future funds that we receive (via Hyperwallet) on your behalf.
13.1 The provisions of this Clause 13 shall apply only to Your sales of any Products via Tebex Checkout, as defined in clause 12.3 above.

13.2 Should a customer raise a Dispute on a payment on your Webstore, we may use collected data (command logs, player access logs, purchase history etc) to challenge the Dispute if appropriate.
