The terms and conditions set out in this agreement ("Agreement") are a legal agreement between you ("user" or "you") and Popsa International Limited.
Popsa is a software application that enables you to create customised, full-colour printed products (such as "Photobooks" and "Posters") that can be delivered throughout the world to you, your family, or friends.
Popsa works closely with print partners at locations throughout the world ("Partners") to fulfil delivery of orders placed via our application.
These Terms set out your rights and obligations and those of Popsa International Limited ("we" or "us"), in relation to the Popsa application, the data supplied with the software, and the associated media ("App") and any products or services available through, and material of any kind accessible or relating to the App or us including the use of Popsa Unlimited. When we refer to "Popsa" in these Terms, we mean the App and/or the Services, as is relevant to the context.
These Terms are subject to any rules or policies (the "App Store Rules") applied by Apple if you use an iOS device and any rules or polices (the "Google Play Terms of Service") applied by Google if you use an Android device. We remain the owners of the App at all times.
When you buy Services from Popsa as a consumer you have legal rights. These are also known as 'statutory rights' as they are derived from laws such as the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982 (as this Act has been amended from time to time). Nothing in these Terms affects these legal rights, or if you live outside the UK, your equivalent rights in your country of residence. UK citizens obtain further information from their local Citizens' Advice Bureau (www.citizensadvice.org.uk).
These Terms are only available in English. Please ensure you understand these Terms, even if your first language is not English.
You will be able to access most features of Popsa without registering your details with us. Some features, and the opportunity to place an order for our Services ("Order"), are only open to you if you create an Account.
If you are uncertain about your rights under these Terms please email firstname.lastname@example.org or send a letter to Popsa International Limited, St James House, 9-15 St James Street, Surbiton, Surrey, KT6 4QH.
Popsa requires an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch running iOS 8.0 or later. Popsa may be updated from time to time, to add new features or fix bugs, as such these requirements may also change.
If you do not agree to the terms of this Agreement, you must exit Popsa immediately and uninstall it from your device.
1.1 These Terms apply to the App or any of the services or Photobooks or other products ("Products") accessible through the App (together "Services"), including any updates or supplements to the App or any Services, unless they come with separate terms, in which case those terms apply. If any open-source software is included in the App or any Service, the terms of an open-source licence may override some of these Terms.
1.2 We may change these Terms at any time by posting a notice on our App notifying you of a change to the Terms when you next log on to the App, but such notifications of change are a courtesy and not an obligation. If you are required to accept new Terms, they may be displayed on-screen and you may be required to read and accept them to continue your use of the App.
1.3 From time to time software updates may be issued. Depending on the update, you may not be able to use the App until you have accepted any new Terms.

You accept responsibility, in accordance with these Terms for the use of the App or any Service on or in relation to any Device, whether or not it is owned by you.
1.6 By using the App to browse or purchase our Services and/or Products, you consent to us collecting and using technical information about the Devices and related software, hardware and peripherals for Services that are internet-based or wireless to improve our Products and to provide any Services to you.

If you use our App, you consent to us and our affiliates, Partners and licensees' transmission, collection, retention, maintenance, processing and use of your location data and queries to provide and improve location-based Products and Services.
1.8 The App may contain links to other independent third-party websites ("Third-party Sites"). Third-party Sites are not under our control, and we are not responsible for and do not endorse their content or their privacy policies (if any). You will need to make your own independent judgement regarding your interaction with any Third-party Sites, including the purchase and use of any products or services accessible through them.

5.3 Payment is due and payable immediately on submission of your Order. Prices include VAT or appropriate sales tax.
5.4 Acceptance of your Order by Popsa strictly depends on authorisation of your payment from Stripe or other of our authorised payment processors from time to time or where you use Apple Pay, the receipt by Popsa of your token generated by Apple to authorise that payment of fees has been made in full, or where you use Google Pay, the receipt by Popsa of your token generated by Google to authorise that payment of fees has been made in full.

It is important that you understand Apple Pay terms and conditions at https://www.apple.com/apple-pay/ which apply to any use of Apple Pay services, and the Google Pay terms at https://payments.google.com/ if you choose to use that payment method instead. Popsa is not liable for any loss you incur relating to the use of Apple Pay.
5.9 If you are a consumer within the UK nothing in this clause affects your legal rights to cancel this Agreement during the cancellation period under clause 6 below or any similar consumer rights available to you in your country of residence.
6. Your Right to Cancel
6.1 If you are a UK consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a contract during the period set out below in clause 6.4. This is referred to as the 'cancellation period'. Your legal right to cancel starts from the date of the Confirmation Email (the date on which we e-mail you to confirm our acceptance of your Order), which is when the contract between us is formed.
6.2 You have the right to cancel this Agreement within 14 days without giving any reason, subject to clause 6.3 below.
6.3 Your right to cancel these Terms starts from the date when this Agreement is entered into (i.e. when the Confirmation email is sent to you by us) and ends at the end of 14 days period after this date or earlier if the Services to fulfil your Order have already commenced.
6.4 To exercise the right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision to cancel this Agreement by a clear statement either by letter sent by post to Popsa International Limited, St James House, 9-15 St James Street, Surbiton, Surrey, KT6 4QH, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you cancel as set out at above we will communicate to you an acknowledgement of receipt of such a cancellation on a durable medium (e.g. by e-mail) without delay.
6.5 Further information on your legal rights can be obtained from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau ( www.citizensadvice.org.uk) or Trading Standards office or where outside the UK your local consumer advice centre.
6.6 Please be aware that the Services we provide via our App are almost instantaneous, and therefore your cancellation period is likely to be very short as it will only last until the performance of the Services has commenced in accordance with your Order. Upon submission of your Order, the details of your Order are immediately passed on to our Partners and Third Party Providers for processing and this counts as the start of performance of our Services to you. Please therefore take extra care before you confirm your Order with us as your right to cancel may be lost very soon after submission of your Order.
7. Your Photographs and Images
7.1 To enable Popsa to provide our Services to you, we need your permission to use and publish those Images.

7.2 You hereby grant to Popsa a non-exclusive licence to use any Images uploaded by you for the purposes of processing your Order and performing the Services, including the right to sub-licence use of your Image to our Partners, and all necessary consents including under the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 (as amended from time to time) or any other relevant legislation applicable to your location to enable Popsa to change, publish, distribute, exhibit, use the Image for the purposes of enabling you to use our App and to enable us to perform our Services to you.
7.3 You acknowledge that to provide the Services to you, we need to share your Images with our Partners.

Please be aware that despite being unable to complete your Order in these circumstances you may be responsible for fees incurred in respect of Services already performed on your behalf.
17. Other Important Terms
17.1 We may transfer our rights and obligations under this Agreement to another organisation, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these Terms.
17.2 You may only transfer your rights or obligations under this Agreement to another person if we agree in writing.
17.3 If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
17.4 Each of the terms of this Agreement operates separately. If any court or competent authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining Terms will remain in full force and effect.
17.5 This Agreement is between you, as a user of our App and our Services, and Popsa. No one other than a party to this Agreement has any right to enforce any of these Terms.

This means that the Agreement to purchase Services through our App and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it will be governed by English law. You and we both agree that the courts of England and Wales will have non-exclusive jurisdiction. However, if you are a resident of Northern Ireland you may also bring proceedings in Northern Ireland, and if you are resident of Scotland, you may also bring proceedings in Scotland.
If using our Services from outside the UK, you may have similar legal rights as a consumer. Nothing in these Terms or any additional terms limits any consumer legal rights which may not be waived under your local laws.
