These terms apply to SpreadCtrl Services purchased from SpreadCtrl’s website or by contract.


April 20, 2021 (current)

LAST UPDATED: April 20th, 2021


Thanks for using the services, websites, and apps branded as “SpreadCtrl” offered by Azonic Lab Ltd (“Azonic Lab” or “us”). (“SpreadCtrl Services” or “Services”)

These Terms of Use (“TOU” or Terms) contain the terms under which Azonic Lab provides the SpreadCtrl Services to you and describes how the Services may be accessed and used.

You indicate your agreement to these Terms by clicking or tapping on a button indicating your acceptance of these Terms, by executing a document that references them, or by using the Services.

If you will be using the Services on behalf of an organization, you agree to these TOU on behalf of that organization and you represent that you have the authority to do so. In such case, “you” and “your organization” will refer to that organization.

1. Fees and Payments

1.1. Fees for Services.

You agree to pay to Azonic Lab any fees for each SpreadCtrl Service you purchase or use (including any overage fees), in accordance with the pricing and payment terms presented to you for that service. Where applicable, you will be billed using the credit card information you provided through your billing management page. You represent and warrant that the credit card information you provide is correct and you will promptly notify the SpreadCtrl team of any changes to such information. Fees paid by you are non-refundable, except as provided in these Terms or when required by law.

1.2. Subscriptions.

Some of our Services are billed on a subscription basis (we call these “Subscriptions”). This means that you will be billed in advance on a recurring, periodic basis (each period is called a “billing cycle”). Billing cycles are typically monthly, depending on what subscription plan you select when purchasing a Subscription. Your Subscription will automatically renew at the end of each billing cycle unless you cancel auto-renewal through your online billing management page, or by contacting our customer support team. While we will be sad to see you go, you may cancel auto-renewal on your Subscription at any time, in which case your Subscription will continue until the end of that billing cycle before terminating. You may cancel auto-renewal on your Subscription immediately after the Subscription starts if you do not want it to renew.

1.3. Taxes.

Our prices include all taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature such as value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes, assessable by any jurisdiction (collectively, “Taxes”) unless otherwise indicated. You do not need to worry about paying Taxes associated with your purchase.

1.4. Price Changes.

We may change the fees charged to you for the SpreadCtrl Services at any time, provided that, for Services billed on a subscription basis, the change will become effective only at the end of the then-current billing cycle of your Subscription. The SpreadCtrl team will provide you with advance notice of any change in fees.

1.5. Overage Fees.

Unless otherwise stated, any overage fees incurred by you will be billed in arrears. Overage fees which remain unpaid for 30 days after being billed are considered overdue. Failure to pay overage fees when due may result in the applicable Services being limited, suspended, or terminated (subject to applicable legal requirements), which may result in a loss of your data associated with those Services.

2. Privacy

2.1. Privacy.

In the course of using the SpreadCtrl Services, you may submit data to us (including your personal data and the personal data of others) or third parties may submit data to you through the Services (all of the above will be referred to as your “Data”). We know that by giving us your Data, you are trusting us to treat it appropriately. Our Privacy Policy details how we treat your Data and we agree to adhere to the Privacy Policy. You in turn agree that we may use and share your Data in accordance with the Privacy Policy and applicable data protection laws. You also agree that you are responsible for notifying these third parties who submit data to you through our Services about the Privacy Policy.

2.2. Confidentiality.

We will treat your Data as confidential information and only use and disclose it in accordance with these Terms (including the Privacy Policy).

We may disclose your Data when required by law or legal process, but only after we, if permitted by law, use commercially reasonable efforts to notify you to give you the opportunity to challenge the requirement to disclose.

2.3. Security.

We will store and process your Data in a manner consistent with industry security standards. We have implemented appropriate technical, enterprise wide, and administrative systems, policies, and procedures designed to help ensure the security, integrity, and confidentiality of your Data and to mitigate the risk of unauthorized access to or use of your Data.

3.2. Limited License to Your Data.

You grant us a national wide, royalty free license to use, reproduce, distribute, modify, adapt, create derivative works, make publicly available, and otherwise exploit your Data, but only for the limited purposes of providing the Services to you and as otherwise permitted by the Privacy Policy.

If you become aware of any unauthorized access to your account, you should notify the SpreadCtrl team immediately. Accounts may not be shared and may only be used by one individual per account.

9. Suspension and Termination of Services

9.1. By You.

You can terminate your Subscription and delete your account at any time through your account management page. Such termination and deletion will result in the deactivation or disablement of your account and access to it, and the deletion of data you collected through use of the Services. Terminations are confirmed immediately and you will not be charged again for that Subscription unless you purchase a new one. If you terminate a Subscription in the middle of a billing cycle, you will not receive a refund unless you are terminating these Terms for any of the following reasons: (a) we have materially breached these Terms and failed to cure that breach within 30 days after you have so notified us in writing; (b) a refund is required by law; or (c) we, in our sole discretion, determine a refund is appropriate. For clarity, we will not grant a refund where you have used our Services, collected data, and/or downloaded your data unless the termination is due to our material, uncured breach or a refund is required by law.

9.2. By Us.

We may terminate your SpreadCtrl Subscription at the end of a billing cycle by providing at least 30 days’ prior written notice to you. We may terminate your SpreadCtrl Subscription for any reason by providing at least 60 days’ written notice to you and will provide a pro rata refund for any period of time you did not use in that billing cycle. We may suspend performance or terminate your SpreadCtrl Subscription for any of the following reasons: (a) you have materially breached these Terms and failed to cure that breach within 30 days after the SpreadCtrl team has so notified you in writing; (b) you cease your business operations or become subject to insolvency proceedings and the proceedings are not dismissed within 90 days; or (c) you fail to pay fees for 30 days past the due date. Additionally, we may limit, suspend, or terminate the Services to you: (i) if you fail to comply with these Terms, (ii) if you use the Services in a way that causes legal liability to us or disrupts others’ use of the Services; or (iii) if we are investigating suspected misconduct by you. Also, if we limit, suspend, or terminate the Services you receive, depending upon the reason, we will endeavor to give you advance notice and an opportunity to obtain a copy of your Data from that Service. However, there may be time sensitive situations where we may decide that we need to take immediate action without notice. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to narrow the scope and duration of any limitation or suspension under this Section as is needed to resolve the issue that prompted such action. We have no obligation to retain your Data upon termination of the Services.

9.3. Further Measures.

If we stop providing the Services to you because you repeatedly or egregiously breach these Terms, We may take measures to prevent the further use of the Services by you, including blocking your IP address.

10. Changes and Updates

10.1. Changes to Terms.

We may change these Terms at any time for a variety of reasons, such as to reflect changes in applicable law or updates to Services, and to account for new Services or functionality. The most current version will always be posted on the SpreadCtrl website. If an amendment is material, as determined in our sole discretion, the SpreadCtrl team will notify you by email. Notice of amendments may also be posted upon your login to your account. Changes will be effective no sooner than the day they are publicly posted. In order for certain changes to become effective, applicable law may require us to obtain your consent to such changes, or to provide you with sufficient advance notice of them. If you do not want to agree to any changes made to the Terms for a Service, you should stop using that Service, because by continuing to use the Services you indicate your agreement to be bound by the updated terms.

10.2. Changes to Services.

We constantly change and improve the Services. We may add, alter, or remove functionality from a Service it provides to you at any time without prior notice. We may also limit, suspend, or discontinue a Service provided to you at its discretion. If we discontinue a Service, we will give you reasonable advance notice to provide you with an opportunity to obtain a copy of your Data from that Service. We may remove data from the Services it provides you at any time in our sole discretion, although we will endeavor to notify you before we do that if it materially impacts you and if practicable under the circumstances.

11. Disclaimers and Limitations of Liability

11.4. Consumers.

We acknowledge that the laws of certain jurisdictions provide legal rights to consumers that may not be overridden by contract or waived by those consumers. If you are such a consumer, nothing in these Terms limits any of those consumer rights.

11.5. Indemnification.

If you are a business, you will indemnify and hold harmless Azonic Lab and its affiliates, officers, agents, and employees from all liabilities, damages, and costs (including settlement costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees) (“Indemnification Amounts”) arising out of a third-party claim regarding or in connection with you or your end users’ use of the Services or breach of these Terms, to the extent that such liabilities, damages and costs were caused by you or your end users.
