Lucidchart Terms of Service
1. Your relationship with Lucid Software Inc.
1.1 Your use of Lucidchart’s products, software, services and web sites (referred to collectively as the “Services” in this document) is subject to the terms of a legal agreement between you and Lucidchart. “Lucidchart” means Lucid Software Inc., whose principal place of business is at 10808 South Riverfront Parkway, Building 14, South Jordan, UT 84095, United States. This document explains how the agreement is made up, and sets out some of the terms of that agreement.
1.2 These Terms of Service form a legally binding agreement between you and Lucidchart in relation to your use of the Services. It is important that you take the time to read them carefully. This legal agreement is referred to below as the “Terms”.
2. Accepting the Terms
2.1 In order to use the Services, you must first agree to the Terms. You may not use the Services if you do not accept the Terms.
2.2 You can accept the Terms by:
(A) clicking to accept or agree to the Terms, where this option is made available to you by Lucidchart in the user interface for any Service; or
(B) by actually using the Services. In this case, you understand and agree that Lucidchart will treat your use of the Services as acceptance of the Terms from that point onwards.
2.3 You may not use the Services and may not accept the Terms if (a) you are not of legal age to form a binding contract with Lucidchart, or (b) you are a person barred from receiving the Services under the laws of the United States or other countries including the country in which you are resident or from which you use the Services.
2.4 Before you continue, you should print off or save a local copy of the Terms for your records.
3. Language of the Terms
3.1 Where Lucidchart has provided you with a translation of the English language version of the Terms, then you agree that the translation is provided for your convenience only and that the English language versions of the Terms will govern your relationship with Lucidchart.
3.2 If there is any contradiction between what the English language version of the Terms says and what a translation says, then the English language version shall take precedence.
4. Provision of the Services by Lucidchart
4.1 Lucidchart is constantly innovating in order to provide the best possible experience for its users. You acknowledge and agree that the form and nature of the Services which Lucidchart provides may change from time to time without prior notice to you.
4.2 As part of this continuing innovation, you acknowledge and agree that Lucidchart may stop (permanently or temporarily) providing the Services (or any features within the Services) to you or to users generally at Lucidchart’s sole discretion, without prior notice to you. You may stop using the Services at any time. You do not need to specifically inform Lucidchart when you stop using the Services.
4.3 You acknowledge and agree that if Lucidchart disables access to your account, you may be prevented from accessing the Services, your account details or any files or other content which is contained in your account.
4.4 You acknowledge and agree that while Lucidchart may not currently have set a fixed upper limit on the number of transmissions you may send or receive through the Services or on the amount of storage space used for the provision of any Service, such fixed upper limits may be set by Lucidchart at any time, at Lucidchart’s discretion.
5. Use of the Services by you
5.1 In order to access certain Services, you may be required to provide information about yourself (such as identification or contact details) as part of the registration process for the Service, or as part of your continued use of the Services. You agree that any registration information you give to Lucidchart will always be accurate, correct and up to date.
5.2 You agree to use the Services only for purposes that are permitted by (a) the Terms and (b) any applicable law, regulation or generally accepted practices or guidelines in the relevant jurisdictions (including any laws regarding the export of data or software to and from the United States or other relevant countries).
5.3 You agree not to access (or attempt to access) any of the Services by any means other than through the interface that is provided by Lucidchart, unless you have been specifically allowed to do so in a separate agreement with Lucidchart. You specifically agree not to access (or attempt to access) any of the Services through any automated means (including use of scripts or web crawlers) and shall ensure that you comply with the instructions set out in any robots.txt file present on the Services.
5.4 You agree that you will not engage in any activity that interferes with or disrupts the Services (or the servers and networks which are connected to the Services).
5.5 Unless you have been specifically permitted to do so in a separate agreement with Lucidchart, you agree that you will not reproduce, duplicate, copy, attempt to create a substitute or similar service through use of or access to, sell, trade or resell the Services for any purpose.
5.6 You agree that you are solely responsible for (and that Lucidchart has no responsibility to you or to any third party for) any breach of your obligations under the Terms and for the consequences (including any loss or damage which Lucidchart may suffer) of any such breach.
5.7 We do not assume any responsibility for special processing or handling of data that might be considered “sensitive” or otherwise “regulated” by particular laws. You specifically consent to our processing of data that you upload to the Service with no special handling, and you agree that you will not, and will use commercially reasonable efforts to make sure a third party does not, use the Services to store or transfer any data that is controlled for export under any export or reexport control law or regulation, or is otherwise subject by law to special processing restrictions (for example, privacy, financial services, and health information laws and regulations).
5.8 You agree that you are responsible for your own conduct and Content while using the Services and for any consequences thereof. You agree to use the Services only for purposes that are legal, proper and in accordance with these Terms.
6. Billing and Payment
6.1 If you select a paid Services level, you may choose to subscribe and pay for the Services on either a monthly or annual basis and Lucidchart will bill the account administrator in advance for use of the Services. Current pricing for monthly and annual paid levels are as set forth on the Lucidchart web site, and Lucidchart reserves the right to modify pricing at any time, provided however that Lucidchart will notify the account administrator of a paid level account by email prior to any monthly or annual price increase affecting that account. If you upgrade to a higher paid level or tier, Lucidchart will credit any remaining balance from your previous subscription payment to your new level or tier. You may choose to discontinue your paid level account at any time; however, Lucidchart does not issue refunds for unused subscription periods.
6.2 You agree to maintain valid and up-to-date billing information on file with Lucidchart. You may update this billing information at any time in your Account settings.
6.3 All payments due are in U.S. dollars unless otherwise indicated on the subscription pricing page or invoice.
a. Credit Card or Debit Card. Fees for accounts where you are paying with a credit card, debit card or other non-invoice form of payment are due at the beginning of the month for which Services will be provided to you. For credit cards, or debit cards: (i) Lucidchart will charge you for all fees when due at the beginning of each service month or year, as applicable; and (ii) these fees are considered delinquent if not received at the start of each service month or year.
b. Invoices. Payments for invoices are due ten days after the invoice date, unless otherwise specified, and are considered delinquent after such date.
c. Renewal. For paid levels, at the end of each annual or monthly subscription period (as applicable), the Services will automatically renew for an additional year or month, respectively. If you wish to change your subscription level or term, the account administrator must change the settings in the account administration console provided as part of the Services.
d. Other Forms of Payment. Lucidchart may enable other forms of payment by making them available in the account administration and payments page. These other forms of payment may be subject to additional terms which you may have to accept prior to using the additional forms of payment.
6.4 Delinquent payments may bear interest at the rate of one-and-one-half percent per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less) from the payment due date until paid in full. You will be responsible for all reasonable expenses (including attorneys' fees) incurred by Lucidchart in collecting such delinquent amounts, except where such delinquent amounts are due to Lucidchart's billing inaccuracies.
6.5 Lucidchart will endeavor to notify you (or in the case of a Team account, your account administrator) if your paid account has delinquent fees. If delinquent fees are not paid, Lucidchart will automatically downgrade your account to a free Lucidchart account and/or suspend your use of the Services.
6.6 You are responsible for any taxes, duties, and customs fees associated with the sale of the Services (other than Lucidchart’s income tax) (collectively “Taxes”), and you will pay Lucidchart for the Services without any reduction for Taxes. If Lucidchart is obligated to collect or pay Taxes, the Taxes will be invoiced to you, unless you provide Lucidchart with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. If you are required by law to withhold any Taxes from your payments to Lucidchart, you must provide Lucidchart with an official tax receipt or other appropriate documentation to support such payments.
6.7 These billing and payment terms may not apply if you are not subscribing to the Services directly from Lucidchart.
7. Your passwords and account security
7.1 You agree and understand that you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of passwords associated with any account you use to access the Services.
7.2 Accordingly, you agree that you will be solely responsible to Lucidchart for all activities that occur under your account.
7.3 If you become aware of any unauthorized use of your password or of your account, you agree to notify Lucidchart immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org.

All such information is referred to below as the “Content”.
9.2 You should be aware that Content presented to you as part of the Services, including but not limited to advertisements in the Services and sponsored Content within the Services may be protected by intellectual property rights which are owned by the sponsors or advertisers who provide that Content to Lucidchart (or by other persons or companies on their behalf).

9.3 Lucidchart reserves the right (but shall have no obligation) to pre-screen, review, flag, filter, modify, refuse or remove any or all Content from any Service.

10. Proprietary rights
10.1 You acknowledge and agree that Lucidchart (or Lucidchart’s licensors) and its resellers own all legal right, title and interest in and to the Services, including any intellectual property rights which subsist in the Services (whether those rights happen to be registered or not, and wherever in the world those rights may exist). You further acknowledge that the Services may contain information which is designated confidential by Lucidchart or its resellers and that you shall not disclose such information without Lucidchart’s prior written consent.
10.2 Unless you have agreed otherwise in writing with Lucidchart, nothing in the Terms gives you a right to use any of Lucidchart’s or its resellers' trade names, trade marks, service marks, logos, domain names, and other distinctive brand features.
10.3 If you have been given an explicit right to use any of these brand features in a separate written agreement with Lucidchart, then you agree that your use of such features shall be in compliance with that agreement, and any applicable provisions of the Terms.
10.4 Other than the limited license set forth in Section 13, Lucidchart acknowledges and agrees that it obtains no right, title or interest from you (or your licensors) under these Terms in or to any Content that you submit, post, transmit or display on, or through, the Services, including any intellectual property rights which subsist in that Content (whether those rights happen to be registered or not, and wherever in the world those rights may exist). Unless you have agreed otherwise in writing with Lucidchart, you agree that you are responsible for protecting and enforcing those rights and that Lucidchart has no obligation to do so on your behalf.
10.5 You agree that you shall not remove, obscure, or alter any proprietary rights notices (including copyright and trade mark notices) which may be affixed to or contained within the Services.

15. Ending your relationship with Lucidchart
15.1 The Terms will continue to apply until terminated by either you or Lucidchart as set out below.
15.2 If you want to terminate your legal agreement with Lucidchart, you may do so by (a) notifying Lucidchart at any time and (b) closing your accounts for all of the Services which you use, where Lucidchart has made this option available to you. Your notice should be sent, in writing, to Lucidchart’s address which is set out at the beginning of these Terms.

(A) if you have breached any provision of the Terms (or have acted in a manner which clearly shows that you do not intend to, or are unable to comply with the provisions of the Terms); or
(B) if Lucidchart is required to do so by law (for example, where the provision of the Services to you is, or becomes, unlawful); or

15.4 In addition, Lucidchart may terminate its legal agreement with you, for any reason or no reason, by giving you 5 days’ written notice to the email address you provide when you register for Lucidchart. If we discontinue your access to the Services at the end of this 5 day period, our termination will be effective at the end of this period, and we will refund any prepaid, unused subscription fees for the Services as soon as practicable thereafter. Otherwise, no fees are refundable, and you may continue using the Services through the end of your subscription period, at which point our termination will become effective.

Without prior notice and at any time at its sole discretion, Lucidchart reserves the right to remove any Content, disable your ability to share or upload Content within the Service, or terminate your access to the Service (a) for uploading or sharing such Content in violation of these Terms of Service; or (b) if, under appropriate circumstances, you are determined to be a repeat infringer.

21. Community Galleries
21.1 The Service may contain galleries that may present third party content ("Community Galleries"). Community Galleries include without limitation the Templates Library and any other gallery that Lucidchart chooses at its discretion to make available to you. The content and information in the Community Galleries ("Gallery Content"), such as templates, was created by Lucidchart or by third parties. As between you and the creators of Gallery Content, any intellectual property or proprietary rights remain with the creators.
21.2 The Gallery Content: (a) is meant to serve as a suggestion only; and (b) is not a substitute for professional advice or specific, authoritative knowledge or direction. Lucidchart does not promise that the Gallery Content will work for your purposes, or that it is free from viruses, bugs, or other defects. The Gallery Content is provided "as is" and without warranty of any kind. You alone bear the risk of using Gallery Content. Lucidchart and its suppliers provide no express warranties, guarantees and conditions with regard to the Gallery Content. To the extent permitted under applicable law, Lucidchart excludes the implied warranties and conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, workmanlike effort, title and non-infringement.
21.3 If you choose to submit Content to become part of the Community Galleries (your “Gallery Submission”), you direct and authorize Lucidchart and its affiliates to host, link to, and otherwise incorporate your Gallery Submission into the Services, and you grant Lucidchart and its end users a worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive license to exercise the rights in the Gallery Submission, as stated below:
(A) to reproduce the Gallery Submission;
(B) to create and reproduce derivative works of the Gallery Submission;
(C) to display publicly and distribute copies of the Gallery Submission;
(D) to display publicly and distribute copies of derivative works of the Gallery Submission.
You agree that your license to Lucidchart and Lucidchart end users will be perpetual. Furthermore, for the avoidance of doubt, Lucidchart reserves, and you grant Lucidchart, the right to syndicate the Gallery Submission submitted by you and use that Gallery Submission in connection with any of the Services offered by Lucidchart. You retain the right to stop distributing the Gallery Submission through the Lucidchart Community Galleries at any time; provided, however that any such election will not serve to withdraw the licenses granted to Lucidchart and its end users under these Terms of Service. In order to stop distributing the Gallery Submission through the Lucidchart Community Galleries, you must utilize the removal functions provided within the Services, in which case the Gallery Submission removal will be effective within a reasonable amount of time.
21.4 You represent and warrant that (a) you own or have obtained the necessary legal rights to provide all Gallery Submissions you submit through the Services, and will maintain these rights for as long as the Gallery Submission is available to Lucidchart end users; and (b) all of the Gallery Submission you submit through the Services abide by the posted Program Policies.
21.5 Lucidchart claims no ownership over any Gallery Submission you submit through the Services. You retain copyright and any other rights, including all intellectual property rights, you already hold in the Gallery Submission. You agree that you are responsible for protecting and enforcing those rights and that Lucidchart has no obligation to do so on your behalf.
21.6 You agree that you are solely responsible for (and that Lucidchart has no responsibility to you or to any third party for) any Gallery Submission that you submit. Lucidchart is not in any way responsible for the subsequent use or misuse by Lucidchart end users who access your Gallery Submission.

You shall cooperate fully in the defense of any claim. Lucidchart reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter subject to indemnification by you. You acknowledge that damages for improper use of the Services may be irreparable; therefore, Lucidchart is entitled to seek equitable relief, including injunction and preliminary injunction, in addition to all other remedies. This section shall take precedence only over the indemnity provision provided in any Terms.
22. Changes to the Terms
22.1 Lucidchart may make changes to the Terms from time to time. When these changes are made, Lucidchart will make a new copy of the Terms available at http://www.lucidchart.com/pages/tos.
22.2 You understand and agree that if you use the Services after the date on which the Terms have changed, Lucidchart will treat your use as acceptance of the updated Terms.
23. General legal terms
23.1 Sometimes when you use the Services, you may (as a result of, or through your use of the Services) use a service or download a piece of software, or purchase goods, which are provided by another person or company. Your use of these other services, software or goods may be subject to separate terms between you and the company or person concerned. If so, the Terms do not affect your legal relationship with these other companies or individuals.
23.2 The Terms constitute the whole legal agreement between you and Lucidchart and govern your use of the Services (but excluding any services which Lucidchart may provide to you under a separate written agreement), and completely replace any prior agreements between you and Lucidchart in relation to the Services.
23.3 You agree that Lucidchart may provide you with notices, including those regarding changes to the Terms, by email, regular mail, or postings on the Services.
23.4 You agree that if Lucidchart does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy which is contained in the Terms (or which Lucidchart has the benefit of under any applicable law), this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of Lucidchart’s rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to Lucidchart.
23.5 If any court of law, having the jurisdiction to decide on this matter, rules that any provision of these Terms is invalid, then that provision will be removed from the Terms without affecting the rest of the Terms. The remaining provisions of the Terms will continue to be valid and enforceable.
23.6 The Terms, and your relationship with Lucidchart under the Terms, shall be governed by the laws of the State of Utah without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. You and Lucidchart agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within Salt Lake County, Utah to resolve any legal matter arising from the Terms. Notwithstanding this, you agree that Lucidchart shall still be allowed to apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.
