Specific Terms Applicable to Certain Users

Type of Users

While all Users are subject to the General Terms above, certain Users are subject to further specific terms. The types of Users are:

“Purchaser” which means a User who places an Order;

“Developer” which means a User who uploads Apps and makes such Apps available to the public

For greater certainty, a Developer may be a Purchaser as well, and a Purchaser who makes Apps publicly available on the MiaLinkup Site becomes a Developer.

Private Uploaded Apps

Apps which are not made publicly available on the MiaLinkup Site is referred to as “Private Apps”. Subject to any other agreement between the Developer and MiaLinkup (i) the Developer represents and warrants that the Developer owns the Private App and all intellectual property rights and other rights therein or has obtained all license rights necessary to enable the relevant activities, (ii) the Developer is responsible for ensuring that the Developer has the right to provide the Private App to MiaLinkup for hosting and transmission with the MiaLinkup Site and the Services (to the extent applicable), and (iii) notwithstanding any disclaimers or limitations otherwise applicable in respect of the Private App, the Developer agrees to hold harmless and indemnify MiaLinkup for any liability arising from the Private App.

In the event of any inconsistency between the provisions of these Terms and Conditions and the applicable license terms, these Terms and Conditions shall prevail to the extent of such inconsistency and such license terms will be deemed to have been modified, in writing, by MiaLinkup and Developer.

Ownership of Uploaded Apps

Unless otherwise stated for specific Services, the Developer or its licensors will retain ownership of and all related rights in any original content provided by the Developer.

Fair Use Policy

MiaLinkup endeavours to maintain fair usage of data for customers by providing maximum allowable data usage amounts for consumer accounts.  This prevents abuse and ensures the best possible pricing for everyone in our community.

The MiaLinkup Fair Use Policy data usage limits for consumer accounts is 2 MG per month when using MiaLinkup within your home country with less than 40% data usage roaming outside your home country.

These limits are based on estimates from frequent usage of MiaLinkup and our ecosystem of apps.

Exceeding MiaLinkup Data Fair Use Policy Limits

If you exceed the MiaLinkup Data Fair Use Policy usage limits per month (30 days) for two consecutive months (60 days), MiaLinkup may contact you to discuss our data plan options for heavy users and businesses.

Following 60 days, regardless of whether we have been in direct contact with you or not, MiaLinkup may begin charging your account per megabyte beyond your allowed usage beginning on the first day of the 3rd month and continuing for as long as you exceed usage limits for your account.

This will be in effect for all of your data services provided by MiaLinkup.

Please be assured that this charge will only initiate if you surpass maximum data usage for 60 consecutive days.

Notifications

If you go over the data limit, you’ll receive an email from our customer service team informing you that your data limit has been exceeded and what to do to prevent being charged.

To prevent from being charged, you can also closely monitor your data usage on your MyMiaLinkup account.

Should you have any questions or concerns please contact customer service.

Taxes

Any Order which specifies delivery of shipment in Canada is subject to Canadian Goods and Services Tax (“GST”) and may also be subject to Provincial Sales Tax (“PST”) or Harmonized Sales Tax (“HST”). In some circumstances, the Purchaser may be required to self-assess PST and remit the appropriate amount in accordance with the applicable laws.

Any Order which specifies delivery of shipment outside Canada may be subject to additional or other taxes or charges, all of which are the responsibility of the Purchaser.

Import Fees

Delivery of an Order may be subject to import taxes, customs duties, and fees levied by the country where the recipient receives shipment of the Order (“Import Fees”), which may include Canada in the circumstances where MiaLinkup uses a third-party service provider located outside Canada to ship the Order to the Purchaser. The Purchaser is responsible for all Import Fees and any additional charges for customs clearance. MiaLinkup has no control over these charges. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; a Purchaser should contact his/her local customs office for further information.

Risk of Loss

If an item ordered from MiaLinkup is substantially damaged in transit to the Purchaser, the Purchaser may request a replacement from MiaLinkup, at MiaLinkup’s cost, provided that the Purchaser will, as directed by MiaLinkup, either return the item to MiaLinkup or destroy the item.
