3. Prices of HacknPlan plans and subscription plan change

3.1. Price of HacknPlan plans:

The price of HacknPlan plans is publicly displayed on  https://hacknplan.com/pricing

Those prices do not include the legally applicable VAT, if any:

    PLAN Annual Subscription Price Monthly Subscription Price
    HacknPlan Personal 0,00.-€ 0,00.-€
    HacknPlan Personal Plus

    48,00.-€ + VAT/year

    (equivalent to 4,00.-€ +VAT/month)

    6,00.-€ + VAT/month
    HacknPlan Studio

    72,00.-€+VAT/year

    (equivalent to 6,00.-€ +VAT/month)

    8,00.-€ + VAT/month

    Mad Cactus Digital reserves the right to modify prices upwards or downwards, including the possibility of turning the free Personal plan into a paid plan. Such changes will be notified at least 60 days in advance of the effective date of such modification.

    The monthly or annual fee charge will be made on the credit/debit card of the User, whose data have been provided during the payment service contracting process, the first one being at the time of contracting and the following ones on the same day of the successive months or years, as applicable.

    3.2. Change of subscription plan:

    You can change your subscription plan at any time in accordance with the stipulations of this section:

    If you change from a free plan (Personal) to any paid plan (Personal Plus or Studio), the billing cycle will start to be counted from the date you subscribe to the corresponding paid plan.

    If you want to switch from one paid plan to a higher one, or add seats in Studio, you will have to pay, at the time of contracting the higher plan, the amount of the corresponding billing cycle minus the proportional part of the price corresponding to the unused time of the lower plan.

    If you want to switch from a higher to a lower payment plan, or reduce seats, a credit will be added to your User Account for the amount corresponding to the proportional part of the period (contracting cycle) of the higher plan not used, which will be compensated with the price that you should pay for the lower plan contracted, until the credit is used up. This compensation will be reflected in the corresponding successive invoices.

    No refunds are made for ongoing billing cycles, either monthly or yearly. For this reason, annual billing cycles are more economical, because you contract the tool with a one-year permanence. In case of changing from an annual plan to a monthly plan, a credit will be added to your User Account for the amount corresponding to the proportional part of the annual period not enjoyed and will be compensated with the price of the contracted monthly plan, until the credit is used up. Such compensation will be reflected in successive monthly invoices.

    The contracting of the “HacknPlan Educational” plan cannot be done online, being necessary to contact Mad Cactus Digital for this purpose.

    3.3. Free trial period conditions:

    Mad Cactus offers you the possibility to try once any of the payment plans whose hiring can be purchased online (“HacknPlan Personal Plus” or “HacknPlan Studio”) for a maximum period of 30 calendar days.

    Once this period has elapsed, the plan contracted by the User will revert to the free plan “HacknPlan Personal”, maintaining only the information and actions that are compatible with the free plan.

    If you cancel the trial period before its end, you will not be able to activate it again.

    It is noted that the trial period can only be enjoyed once by the same User, so any fraudulent behavior detected by Mad Cactus Digital, will entitle it to cancel the trial period and if necessary, block the account/s used by the User to access HacknPlan.

    4. Procedure for contracting HacknPlan services: 

    Currently, the contracting procedure may be carried out exclusively in English.

    Mad Cactus Digital will not keep a copy of these conditions linked to the contract, so we recommend that you keep a copy of them. However, Mad Cactus Digital will send you a copy of the current contracting conditions at the time of subscribing to the services.

    Mad Cactus Digital does not have technical means to identify and correct errors in the input of your data, except for detecting whether any necessary field for processing the request is pending to be filled or if the tax identification number or bank details provided in the contracting of payment services are incorrect.

    In order to use HacknPlan’s services, it is essential to register as a User.

    4.1. Registration as a User: 

    To proceed with the registration as a User, you must click on the “SIGN UP” button and provide your data through any of the following options:

    a) If you register with your email:

    You will be asked for a username (not already registered with HacknPlan), your full name and email address and a password, which will be stored in encrypted form.

    In that case, we will send an email to the provided address with a link to verify it and activate your User Account by clicking on the link. 

    Your access credentials for HacknPlan will be your username or email address and the password.

    b) If you register through social logins: 

    You can sign up using your account on a social network or platform whose social login is active on HacknPlan (for example, Google or Github). 

    In this case, the corresponding platform will provide us with your email address, profile picture, and name with a unique identifier associated with your User profile on HacknPlan.

    To do this, you must log in to that social network or platform and accept the permissions that you grant to Mad Cactus Digital through it, which will allow the HacknPlan application to access the aforementioned information in order to provide the contracted service.

    The permissions may vary depending on the social login platform or social network through which you register in HacknPlan.

    We will provide you with information regarding the processing of personal data, which will be carried out in accordance with the provisions of the Privacy Policy, as well as these terms of service, which you must read and, if you agree, accept by checking the box provided for that purpose.

    After successfully completing the registration process, the HacknPlan system will send you an email to the address provided during registration with a link to verify it. You will need to click on the link to complete the verification process.

    Once you have verified your email address, you can access HacknPlan through the sign in page by providing the username or email address and password you provided during registration.

    4.1.1. Accuracy of the provided data:

    As a user of HacknPlan who has requested registration, you are solely responsible for ensuring that the provided data is up-to-date, complete, accurate, and truthful. Mad Cactus Digital disclaims any responsibility for non-compliance with these requirements in relation to your registration.

    If you detect any errors in the provided data, you must proceed to rectify them as soon as possible through your User Account or by contacting Mad Cactus Digital at the specified email address.

    4.1.2. User access credentials: 

    The user access credentials (email and password) are confidential. Therefore, you must exercise diligence in their use and safekeeping to prevent unauthorized third-party usage. Consequently, you are obligated to immediately notify Mad Cactus Digital in the event of loss of your access credentials or any potential breach of their confidentiality. Otherwise, you must assume responsibility for any damage or harm caused by verified access through your passwords.

    In the event that you don’t remember your password, you can enter your email address to create a new password.

    If you don’t remember the email address you provided during the registration process, you should contact Mad Cactus Digital at the specified email address, explaining the incident. Mad Cactus Digital will get in touch with you and may request relevant documentation (ID card, passport, tax identification number, deeds of constitution, power of attorney, or any other necessary documents) to verify your identity as a user and, if necessary, restore your access to HacknPlan. This process is implemented to ensure the security of the service provision.

    4.2. Access to paid services: 

    To access HacknPlan’s paid services, once you have verified your registration as a User, you must follow the following steps:

    In your User Account, click on the “Settings” button and on “Subscriptions” to access the list of available paid subscriptions (PERSONAL PLUS and STUDIO).

    Then select the subscription plan that best suits your needs:

    a) If you select HacknPlan Personal Plus, you need to indicate:

    The billing period (monthly or annually) at the indicated price. The applicable legal VAT will be added to this price.

    The name of the Team.

    If you want to contract additional storage at the indicated additional price.

    b) If you select HacknPlan Studio, you need to indicate:

    The billing period (monthly or annually) at the indicated price per user. The applicable legal VAT will be added to this price.

    The name of the Studio.

    The number of user seats.

    If you want to contract additional storage at the indicated additional price.

     

    In either case:

    If you have a discount code as part of any promotion, you can enter it (discount codes are not cumulative).

    You will have to read these terms of service and if you agree, check the acceptance box provided for this purpose.

    Once you have accepted the Terms of service, you will need to provide the billing information and proceed with payment using a credit or debit card.

    The payment methods will be subject to verification and authorization by the issuing entity. If the payment is not authorized by the entity, the subscription will not be activated. You guarantee that you have full authorization to use the payment method during the subscription payment process.

    Once you have successfully completed the subscription to the corresponding payment plan, you will have access to the services associated with it.

    4.3. User Account in HacknPlan: 

    Through your User Account in Hacknplan, you can manage your account and access the services offered by HacknPlan, based on the subscription plan you have chosen.

    4.4. Duration and termination of service

    You will be able to maintain your User Account in HacknPlan indefinitely for the “HacknPlan Personal” (free) plan, in accordance with the terms of service outlined.

    For the rest of the paid plans in HacknPlan, you will have access to their services as long as you are up to date with the payment of the price and during the contracted monthly or annual period.

    You can unsubscribe from the paid subscription service by requesting it at any time. You will be able to continue using the service until the end of the contracted period (monthly or annual), and no charges will be made for the following period.

    If you wish, you can delete your User Account through the platform itself. This action will permanently remove your User Account in HacknPlan, as well as all the associated data and your Projects. Please note that this action is irreversible.

    The early termination of the contract may also occur if any of the causes for termination of the contract provided for in the applicable legislation or in these Terms of service occur.

    Mad Cactus Digital may withdraw or suspend the provision of services at any time and without prior notice in the event of non-compliance with any of the obligations assumed under these Terms of service. Mad Cactus Digital reserves the right to claim damages that may arise from such non-compliance.

    You must withdraw the permissions granted to HacknPlan through each social network or platform (e.g., Google or GitHub) directly within each respective social network or platform.

    4.5. Billing: 

    Mad Cactus Digital will issue the corresponding invoice detailing the Value Added Tax (VAT) and withholding taxes, if any, that may apply according to the applicable rate at any time, being necessary for this purpose that you provide your complete billing information.
