By signing up you agree to the following Legal Terms and Conditions
NOTE: By accepting the terms and conditions you are entering into a legally binding agreement
The Fidesmo Service is a platform, marketed as a service, connecting Service Providers to the Fidesmo Card or Fidesmo approved secure elements (the "Secure Elements"). By accepting these terms and conditions you agree that by using the Fidesmo Developer Site (the "Developer Site") you are entering into a legally binding agreement with Fidesmo Corporation (Fidesmo AB, a corporation legally registered in Sweden with org. number 556926-0978). By signing up and registering for an account (a "Developer Account") you acknowledge that you have read and understood and agree to be bound by these terms and conditions (the "Terms").
When you sign-up, register and subsequently are using the Fidesmo Developer Site on behalf of a company or other entity, you represent and warrant that you have full legal authority to register for a Developer Account on behalf of that entity and bind it to these Terms. If you are not authorized, you may not accept the Terms or register for a Developer Account for someone else. Furthermore, you may not sign-up nor register for a Developer Account and may not accept the Terms if you are not of legal age to form a binding contract with Fidesmo.
The Terms will be evolved and amended and you are therefore obliged to regularly check back and keep yourself informed of the current Terms. Thus, your continued access to the Fidesmo Developer Site and/or use of the Fidesmo Card and associated APIs indicates your agreements to the Terms.
With the Fidesmo Card anyone can write and distribute their own card apps, deliver existing services or sell and manage card-based services from a phone app (the "Fidesmo App"). As soon as you have signed-up and registered for a Developer Account and agreed to follow these Terms, you can start developing and distributing you own card apps.
Below sets out how to sign-up, register and getting started with a Developer Account.
In order to get started you need to create your sign-up and register for a Developer Account. You do this via https://developer.fidesmo.com/signup. It is very important that you enter and keep up-to-date information at all times, including the name of your organization or company, e-mail address as well as any other requested information.
All notices and service messages (the "Notices") will, unless otherwise stipulated in these Terms, be sent to you to the information provided to us by you when signing-up and registering.
Once you have signed up and registered your Developer Account will be activated and you will find/receive an Application Key to obtain necessary access to the Fidesmo API and other necessary information.
Commercial Use: As long as you follow these Terms, Fidesmo grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-assignable, non-transferable license under Fidesmo's intellectual property rights to use the APIs for commercial use to develop, test, and support your own card apps, and to let your customers use the apps thru interaction with the Fidesmo Card or other Fidesmo approved Secure Elements.
Non-Commercial Use: If you choose a non-chargeable license the APIs are licensed to you (on a limited, restricted in-time, non-exclusive, personal, non-transferable and royalty-free license) under which you are free to use as set out above PROVIDED THAT you only do so for non-commercial purposes (defined as using the license in a non-commercial environment for development, testing and other non-profit activity testing and without and only for as long as not charging a fee to any third party) and PROVIDED THAT you attribute the work to Fidesmo by (at least) mentioning our name, including an appropriate copyright notice and providing a link to our website located at http://fidesmo.com. Warranties and liabilities that may apply for Commercial Use are explicitly excluded for all Non-Commercial Use.
The development, distribution, selling and management of apps using the Fidesmo Card shall at all times be in accordance with these Terms.
The Fidesmo Pricing Tier, available at https://developer.fidesmo.com/documentation/pricing, sets out the different pricing levels applicable for having a Developer Account with Fidesmo and for using the Fidesmo Card, unless otherwise agreed in writing between you and Fidesmo Corporation.
After getting started as set out above, you will receive an invoice in respect of the applicable charges (the "Charges").
The invoice and any subsequent Charges shall be payable either immediately or within the date indicated on the invoice as last day of payment.
For usage of Fidesmo's payment functionality embedded in the Fidesmo App, we refer to our payment provider and partner Mangopay (hereafter "Payment Provider") and their terms of service.

Neither Fidesmo nor any of our subsidiaries, affiliated companies, suppliers, employees, shareholders, or directors ("Fidesmo Affiliates") shall be cumulatively liable for any special, incidental, indirect, punitive or consequential damages or loss of use, profit, revenue or data to you or any third person arising from your use of Fidesmo Materials accessed through or downloaded from Fidesmo.

These Terms and any claim, cause of action or dispute ("claim") arising out of or related to these Terms shall be governed by the laws of the Kingdom of Sweden, regardless of your country of origin or where you access Fidesmo, and notwithstanding of any conflicts of law principles and the United Nations Convention for the International Sale of Goods. You and Fidesmo agree that all claims arising out of or related to these Terms must be resolved exclusively by a court located in Stockholm, Sweden, except as otherwise agreed by the parties or as described in the Arbitration Option paragraph below. You and Fidesmo agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Stockholm, Sweden for the purpose of litigating all such claims. Notwithstanding the above, you agree that Fidesmo shall still be allowed to apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.
For any claim (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) where the total amount of the award sought is less than €10,000, the party requesting relief may elect to resolve the dispute in a cost effective manner through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. In the event a party elects arbitration, they shall initiate such arbitration through an established alternative dispute resolution ("ADR") provider mutually agreed upon by the parties. The ADR provider and the parties must comply with the following rules: (a) the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration; (b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and (c) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator shall be final and may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Here are some important details about how to read these Terms.
If any provision of these Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction or arbitrator to be illegal, void, or unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be modified so as to render it enforceable and effective to the maximum extent possible in order to effect the intention of the provision; if a court or arbitrator finds the modified provision invalid, illegal, void or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions of these Terms will not be affected in any way.

You may contact us via mail at email@example.com, via messages on the Developer Site or mail or courier at: Fidesmo AB, Ankarsrumsgatan 16, SE-163 50 Spǻnga, Sweden. Additionally, Fidesmo accepts service of process at this address. Any notices that you provide without compliance with this section shall have no legal effect.

We reserve the right to modify, supplement, or replace the terms of these Terms, effective prospectively upon posting on the Developer Site or notifying you otherwise.

If you do not want to agree to changes to these Terms, you can terminate these Terms at any time by ceasing use of the APIs and/or closing your Developer Account.
