4. Using WASDI Subscriptions¶
4.1. Starting from 18 MAY 2023 WASDI has implemented a subscription-based agreement for using WASDI services. From 18 MAY 2023 onwards, when a user creates a new WASDI account they will be granted rights to a FREE 3 MONTH (90 DAYS) subscription at the STANDARD LEVEL (for information on subscription levels, see sections 5.2 and 5.3). The subscription begins from the first subscription-only action the user executes and continues for the specified amount of time calculated in milliseconds (for information on subscription-only actions, see section 4.7).
4.2. Users who have purchased a Standard Subscription understand and acknowledge that their Node is shared and priority may be granted to Professional Subscription holders at any time in the course of the user’s WASDI actions.
4.3. The User must have an active project and valid subscription in WASDI to perform any subscription-only actions. When a subscription profile is created, an active project for that subscription is created automatically.
4.4. Subscriptions are shareable between users within an organization, but they are not TRANSFERABLE. If you need to transfer a long term subscription (1 Month or 1 Year) please contact WASDI directly.
4.5. By purchasing and using a WASDI subscription, you are acknowledging that if you are found to be in violation of any of WASDI’s terms of service particularly as outlined in section 9, the privileges associated with your subscription will be revoked and no refund will be issued. See section 12 for further information on Account Termination or Suspension.
4.6. If there is a major interruption during the course of a short term subscription (1 Day or 1 Week) the amount of time the interruption caused will be added to the remaining time of the subscription. For example, if the last two hours of a 1 Day subscription were interrupted, those 2 hours will be added to the time remaining in that specific subscription.
4.7. Subscription-only actions are actions in WASDI that are solely available to holders of VALID subscriptions with an active project.The first execution of any of these actions will trigger your subscription to begin. These actions are as follows: a. Executing a Processor in a workspace (an existing workspace or a new one); b. Opening a Jupyter Notebook in a workspace; c. Importing a product to a workspace; d. Executing a workflow in a workspace WASDI retains the right to add subscription-only actions to this list at any time.
5. Purchasing WASDI Subscriptions¶
5.1. After the 3 months of free access, WASDI offers two levels of subscription, STANDARD (STND) and PROFESSIONAL (PRO). For information on the differentiation, please visit our pricing page at either our information page or log into an existing WASDI account and navigate to the Subscriptions Page.
5.2. Short Term and STANDARD (STND) Subscriptions are purchased through our payment partner, STRIPE. When the user completes a payment through Stripe, they are not only agreeing to act in compliance with WASDI’s terms of service, but also that of Stripe.
5.3. PROFESSIONAL (PRO) Subscriptions are only available through contacting WASDI. The clauses pertaining to refunding (4.6, and 4.7) are not applicable to PROFESSIONAL subscriptions. Users wishing to purchase a PROFESSIONAL subscription must contact WASDI directly for pricing and user obligations.
5.4. VAT is calculated at checkout through STRIPE based on the user’s location. The VAT calculation shown on the WASDI website is based on a Luxembourgish user. If the purchasing user is located elsewhere, you are acknowledging that your VAT rate may differ. When you complete a transaction on our Payment Partner’s website, you are confirming that all information, including your location is true and accurate.
5.6. STANDARD Subscriptions can be purchased in increments of 1 Day (24 Hours), 1 Week (7 Days), 1 Month (30 Days), or 1 Year (365 days). These times are calculated in milliseconds beginning at the first execution of a subscription-only action.
5.7. Short term subscription plans (i.e., 1 Day and 1 Week) will be refundable if they are PAID but unused. An unused subscription is one where no subscription-only action has been executed. This refund can be claimed within 14 days of payment. After 14 days, issuing a refund is at the discretion of WASDI.
5.8. Executed and partially complete subscriptions of any kind are not refundable. If you have executed a subscription-only action you have agreed to waive your right to a refund.
