Terms of Service

The following terms ("Terms of Use") constitute an agreement between WP Tasty, LLC ("Company"), and you that governs your use of this website and all of its associated services, content, and functionality. This policy applies to the website administered by the Company and the web-based software application associated with the website and any other associated services, located at https://wptasty.com.

The Company offers three paid plugins:

  1. Tasty Recipes
  2. Tasty Links
  3. Tasty Pins

Throughout these Terms of Use, if a singular plugin is referenced and the terms apply only to that plugin, its full name will be used. “Plugins” will refer to all three plugins collectively. Additionally, we may use the term “Plugin” to refer to any single plugin when the same terms could apply to any of the Plugins. Throughout these Terms of Use, “Website” refers to the website in its entirety, exclusive of the Plugins.

Your use of the Website or Plugins constitutes your acceptance of, and agreement to, the following Terms of Use. Company reserves the right to modify, alter, amend or update its Website, its Plugins, its policies, and these Terms of Use. These Terms of Use are subject to change without notice. If you do not agree with or do not accept any part of these Terms of Use, you must not use the Website or Plugins.

PURCHASE AND REFUND POLICY

NOTE: All Plugins are available for use on WordPress sites only.

Account Creation

At the time of purchase, you must register an account (“Account”) by providing certain required information, such as your name and email address. At the time of purchase, you will receive a license key that will allow you to access the applicable Plugin.

By registering for an Account, you represent and warrant that you are: a) at least 18 years old and b) the owner or representative of the owner of any websites on which the purchased Plugin will be installed. You understand and agree that you are responsible for updating the email address associated with your Account as this will be the method through which Company will contact you.

By creating the Account, you agree to abide by these Terms of Use. You understand and agree that you may not use the Website or any of the Website’s functionality, including the Plugins, in any way that is deemed prohibited by these Terms of Use. Company may reject or cancel your Account for any reason, in Company’s sole discretion.

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Account and password, including but not limited to the restriction of access to your computer and/or Account. You agree to accept responsibility for any and all activities or actions that occur under your Account and/or password, whether your password is with our Website or a third-party service. You must notify us immediately upon becoming aware of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your Account.

Payments

A valid payment method, including credit card, is required to process the payment for your ongoing use of the Plugins. You shall provide the Company with accurate and complete billing information including full name, address, state, zip code, telephone number, and a valid payment method information. By submitting such payment information, you automatically authorize the Company to charge all fees incurred through your Account to any such payment instruments.

Refunds

We offer a 14-day refund period after you purchase the Plugin. If, for any reason, you are not satisfied with your purchase, please please email [email protected] to request a refund within 14 days after your purchase. After that time, refunds will not be granted.

Cancellation

You will be billed annually for any Plugins you have purchased. Any renewals will be made to the credit card you have stored with our payment processor. In order to avoid being charged, you must cancel at least one (1) day prior to the next charge. Upon termination, you will no longer have access to your Account.

Impact of Cancellation

Upon cancellation of a Plugin, your previously entered information will still be visible, but you will no longer be eligible for support or updates to the Plugins.

Changes to Price of the Services

We reserve the right to modify any prices on the Website, at any time. If you are an existing user of the Plugins, we will notify you of any price changes prior to your next billing date.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

Company is the owner of the Website and all services and rights associated therewith. This includes all contents, features, and functionality, including, but not limited to, the Website, software, text, displays, images, video, and audio, and the design of the Website. The Website is protected by United States and international copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, and other intellectual property or proprietary laws.

Plugin Licensing

The Plugins are fully licensed under the GNU General Product Licence, version 2. Except as mentioned in a moment, the GPL applies to everything you'll find in our Plugin zip files: PHP, HTML, javascript, CSS, images and anything else. The only exception to this is where we have used public domain assets for a Plugin (e.g., public domain images) or where we have used assets (such as images) that have been licensed by someone else under an open access licence, such as a Creative Commons Attribution licence or a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike licence. You'll be able to see whether that's the case for a particular Plugin by checking the licence files included in the zip file you'll download. If we do use assets (such as images) licensed under another licence, we'll only use assets where that other licence gives you the same freedoms as those under the GPL. That way you can be sure you'll have the rights you may need.

Understanding the GPL

We think it's important that you understand the freedoms you have under the GPL. In a nutshell, you are allowed to:

  • use the licensed material for any purpose;
  • study how it works and freely adapt it;
  • redistribute it to anyone, with or without a fee; and
  • improve it and redistribute those improvements to anyone.

This means, for example, that you can use our Plugins on any number of your own sites and on any number of your clients' sites. We know the GPL's text can be hard to understand at times, so we're providing a human-readable summary of the main points for your information that you can read at any time. The license terms themselves govern your use of the licensed material but we hope the summary makes life easier for you.

Redistribution

You'll see from what we've said above that the GPL freedoms allow you to redistribute our Plugins to others (as long as you don't infringe any trademark or other rights we may have or breach any law). However, please appreciate that we have spent hundreds of hours developing our Plugins, that we do so as a means of sustaining ourselves and our families, and that we rely on continued sales to maintain and improve the Plugins you purchase and to provide support to you. If you make our Plugins available on another website for others to download, you may threaten the revenue streams that sustain our business and enable us to maintain and improve our Plugins. You may also lose your right, under these terms of use, to access support and updates from us (as described below).

Support and updates via access key

When you purchase one of our Plugins, you will be sent an access key (a numeric or alpha-numeric code). You activate the access key by entering it within the WordPress dashboard once you've installed the Product. Activation of the access key entitles you to support (as described in our support policies from time to time) in relation to the Plugin you have purchased and limited to the site(s) for which you are entitled to and have activated the access key. Activation of the access key also entitles you to updates of the Plugin that we release, again in the context of the site(s) for which you are entitled to and have activated the access key.

Your right of access to support and updates lasts for 12 months from the date you purchase the Plugin. After 12 months, your subscription will automatically renew. If you want to cancel this subscription, you must cancel prior to the next billing date.

Requesting support

To request support, you will need to obtain a login to the support area of our Site through the creation of your Account. It is your responsibility to select a strong password and to protect it against loss and unauthorized use. If requested, you must provide details of your true identity. You agree not to provide fictitious details or to impersonate another person.

Access key, login, and right to support personal to you

Your access key, your Account, and your right to support are personal to you. You are not permitted to share any of them with or transfer any of them to anyone else without our prior written approval (which we may refuse at our discretion) and you are not permitted to republish support answers on any other website or medium. If you do any of these things, we may deactivate your access key and terminate your right to support and updates, with or without notice. You agree that we may also exercise these powers if we have reason to believe you are requesting support for sites that do not fall within your support entitlements or if you are making our Plugins available on another website for others to download, with or without charge. (This does not defeat your rights under the GPL. We are simply saying that if you decide to exercise your GPL rights in that way, you will lose your right under these terms of use to access support and updates from us.) If we believe the security of your access key or login has been compromised, we may suspend your rights of access while we investigate. If you believe your login has been compromised, please let us know as soon as possible.
