Terms of Service
Last updated 7 February 2024
These Terms of Service (the “Terms”) including its appendices listed below, order form and/or any other agreement constitutes the entire agreement (“Agreement”) between the Customer, User or You and Textpanda (”Textpanda” or “we,” “our” or “us”), regarding your use of our services specified in the Terms (the software, and services are collectively referred to as the “Service”). Please read these Terms carefully. You may authorize your employees or other individual authorized users (collectively, “Authorized Users”) to use the Service. You agree that you are fully responsible with respect to any use of the Service by an Authorized User, including any breach by an Authorized User of these Terms.
The service is an AI powered text expansion solution that helps users automate repetitive typing and generate text using artificial intelligence. The Service is provided only electronically through a browser extension on browsers, such as Google Chrome, desktop software and through other interfaces hosted by Textpanda or its partners.
The Service is not intended for users that are consumers (being an individual acting primarily for purposes other than a trade, business or profession) and the applicability of consumer protection legislation is therefore excluded. You must be 18 years of age or older to enter into this agreement and use the Service. You represent and warrant that any information you submit is true and accurate and that you are 18 years of age or older and are fully able and competent to enter into, and abide by these Terms, and that you have the authority to bind the Customer entity listed on the Agreement, if applicable.
Users must register to use the Service. You agree to, and cause all Authorized Users to: (a) provide accurate, current and complete information as may be prompted by registration forms on the Service (“Registration Data”); (b) maintain the security of, and not share with any third party, any logins, passwords, or other credentials that you or any Authorized User selects or that are provided to you or any Authorized User for use on the Service; (c) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data, and any other information you or any Authorized User provides to us, and to keep all such information accurate, current, and complete; and (d) notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of any Authorized User account or any other breach of security by emailing us at [email protected]. Any activity on an Authorized User’s account shall be the sole responsibility of the Customer.
Fees and payment
Access to selected features of the Service may be provided to you free of charge. We will charge fees for certain features, either on a one-time or a subscription basis (“Paid Services”). Textpanda reserves the right to implement fees or change the fees for certain services at any time by providing you notice on the Service or otherwise. When you purchase any Paid Services, you authorize Textpanda or its third party payment processors to charge the credit card identified by you (which you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use) all applicable fees for your purchase, including all applicable taxes, and you agree that our payment provider can store your credit card information. If Textpanda does not receive payment from your credit card provider, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand and Textpanda may suspend your access to the Services until full payment is received or terminate the Terms of Service. All sales are final and Textpanda will not issue refunds, including for prepaid monthly fees. If you choose an automatic recurring payment and later decide to end your subscription, cancelling the payment is your responsibility. Textpanda does not refund automatic payments not cancelled in time.
We reserve the right to correct any errors or mistakes in pricing, even if we have already requested or received payment. We also reserve the right to refuse any order placed through the Service.

In no event will we or our directors, employees, or agents be liable to you or any third party for any direct, indirect, consequential, exemplary, incidental, special, or punitive damages, including lost profit, lost revenue, loss of data, or other damages arising from your use of the site, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, our liability to you for any cause whatsoever and regardless of the form of the action, will at all times be limited to the amount paid, if any, by you to us during the six (6) month period prior to any cause of action arising . Certain US state laws and international laws do not allow limitations on implied warranties or the exclusion or limitation of certain damages. If these laws apply to you, some or all of the above disclaimers or limitations may not apply to you, and you may have additional rights.

Electronic communications, transactions, and signatures
Visiting the service, sending us emails, and completing online forms constitute electronic communications. You consent to receive electronic communications, and you agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications we provide to you electronically, via email and on the service, satisfy any legal requirement that such communication be in writing. You hereby agree to the use of electronic signatures, contracts, orders, and other records, and to electronic delivery of notices, policies, and records of transactions initiated or completed by us or via the site. You hereby waive any rights or requirements under any statutes, regulations, rules, ordinances, or other laws in any jurisdiction which require an original signature or delivery or retention of non-electronic records, or to payments or the granting of credits by any means other than electronic means.
Textpanda reserves the right to delete harmful or inappropriately generated snippets, as well as the users who created them.
Our partner OpenAI uses tokens for their billing system. Textpanda transforms used tokens into word count. This calculation is not 100% accurate. You can think of tokens as pieces of words used for natural language processing. For English text, 1 token is approximately 4 characters or 0.75 words.
For this reason, longer words may use more tokens with OpenAi so Textpanda will count them as multiple words.
