QUIKKLY END-USER LICENCE AGREEMENT V2.3
LAST REVISED: JanUARY 2017
This agreement is dated the date that the App is downloaded by you.
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE DOWNLOADING OR STREAMING THE APP.
This end-user licence agreement (“EULA”) is a legal agreement between you (“you”) and Quikkly Limited of St Stephens House, Arthur Road, Windsor, Berkshire SL4 1RU, UK (“us” or “we”) for the Quikkly mobile application software, the data supplied with the software, the associated media, and any associated updates (the “App”).
We licence use of the App to you on the basis of this EULA and subject to any rules or policies applied by any appstore provider or operator from whose site (“Appstore”), you downloaded the App (“Appstore Rules”). We do not sell the App to you. We remain the owners of the App at all times, and all copyright, trademarks, patents, rights in designs and all other intellectual property rights in the App and belong to us or our licensors.
Operating system requirements: This App requires an iPhone 5 or later with iOS 8 (or later) or an Android phone running version 4.2 or later, over 75MB of available memory, an internet connection and an integral camera.
The terms of this EULA apply to the App and any of the services (the “Services”) accessible through the App or our websites, www.quikklycodes.com, *.quikkly.io and www.quikklytags.info (together the “Website”), including any updates or supplements to the App or any Service, unless any comes with separate terms, in which case those terms also apply. If any open-source software is included in the App or any Service, the terms of an open-source licence may override some of the terms of this EULA. In particular, the App makes use of OpenCV software, the licence terms of which can be viewed here.
You may use our App and the Service only if you can form a binding contract with Quikkly, and only in compliance with this EULA and all applicable laws.
We may change these terms at any time and may notify you of a change when you next start the App. The new terms may be displayed on-screen and you may be required to read and accept them to continue your use of the Services.
From time to time updates to the App may be issued. Depending on the update, you may not be able to use the Services until you have downloaded or streamed the latest version of the App and accepted any new terms.
You will be assumed to have obtained permission from the owners of any mobile telephone or handheld devices that are controlled, but not owned, by you and described in condition (the “Devices”) to download or stream a copy of the App onto the Devices. You and they may be charged by your and their service providers for internet access and/or data use on the Devices. You accept responsibility in accordance with the terms of this EULA for the use of the App or any Service on or in relation to any Device, whether or not it is owned by you.
Additionally, by using the App or any Service, you acknowledge and agree that internet transmissions are never completely private or secure. You understand that any message or information you send using the App or any Service may be read or intercepted by others, even if that a particular transmission is encrypted. By using the App or any of the Services, you consent to us collecting and using technical information about the Devices and related software, hardware and any internet-based or wireless peripherals for Services to improve our products and to provide any Services to you.
Certain Services will make use of location data sent from the Devices. You can turn off this functionality at any time by turning off the location services settings for the App on the Device. If you use these Services, you consent to us and our affiliates' and licensees' transmission, collection, maintenance, processing and use of your location data and queries to provide and improve location-based products and services. You may withdraw this consent at any time by turning off the location services settings on your Device.
The App or any Service (including Quikkly Tags) may contain links to other independent third-party websites (“Third-party Sites”). Third-party Sites are not under our control, and we are not responsible for and do not endorse their content or their privacy policies (if any). You will need to make your own independent judgement regarding your interaction with any Third-party Sites, including the purchase and use of any products or services accessible through them. To the extent that our Services incorporate or utilize Third-Party Sites or third party software we are not responsible or liable for any failure or loss of function of such Third-Party Sites or third party software. In this EULA, “Quikkly Tags” or "Quikkly Codes" means visual and electronic codes created by third-party licensees of Quikkly that, when scanned by a Device, enable the Device to perform an action, where such action is specified by that third party licensee of Quikkly.
Any words following the terms including, include, in particular or for example or any similar phrase shall be construed as illustrative and shall not limit the generality of the related general words.
If you use our Services on behalf of an organization, you are agreeing to these Terms on behalf of that organization.

PRINTED MATERIALS - General
For convenience, Quikkly may from time to time provide links within its App or Website that enables users to order printed materials featuring Quikkly Codes. Quikkly may use different Printed Materials Services at its discretion and at different times. In such cases, users may be subject to additional terms and conditions governing the creation, production and dispatch of these materials. You will be notified of these terms during the ordering process for your items.
In addition to any additional terms notified during the ordering process, use of our printed materials services are subject to the following minimum conditions:
You must not use the Printed Materials Service for any illegal or unauthorised purpose and in using the Printed Materials Service you agree to comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations, including in any jurisdiction from which you access the Service. In particular, you must not:
- Submit violent, nude, partially nude, discriminatory, unlawful, infringing, hateful, pornographic or sexually suggestive photos or other content via the Service;
- defame, stalk, bully, abuse, harass, threaten, impersonate or intimidate people or entities and you must not submit private or confidential information via the Service without first obtaining the relevant consent;
- create or submit unwanted email, comments, likes or other forms of commercial or harassing communications (a/k/a "spam") to any Service Users;
- knowingly transmit any data, send or upload any material that contains viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time-bombs, keystroke loggers, spyware, adware or any other harmful programs or similar computer code designed to adversely affect the operation of any computer software or hardware;
- Attempt to restrict another user from using or enjoying the Service;
The person submitting the content to the Printed Materials Service remain the owner of the intellectual property rights in the User Content that you submit, but you hereby grant to Quikkly's chosen Printed Materials Service Provider(s) a non-exclusive, sub-licensable, transferable, world-wide, perpetual, royalty-free licence to use your User Content in order to facilitate your use of (and our provision to you of) the Printed Materials Service, to show (in whole or in part) other users of the Printed Materials Service Procider and other third parties who may be interested in the Printed Materials Service. To the fullest extent permitted by law, you hereby waive any and all moral rights you may have in the User Content.
Once an order for Printed Materials has been submitted, it may not be cancelled. This is because the Products you order are entirely bespoke and we use a highly automated print system whereby all Product orders are immediately placed into the print system for processing.
The images of the Products on our site are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that your computer's display of the colours accurately reflect the colour of the Products. Your Products may vary slightly from those images. The packaging of the Products may also vary from that shown on images on our site.
We make every effort to supply the Products as advertised but reserve the right to supply the Products subject to minor variations in actual dimensions and specifications stated. All orders will be produced using the information provided by you at the time of order and we will not be held responsible for any errors submitted by the customer, including where User Content of a low resolution or file size has been submitted to print.
We are committed to providing our customers with the highest quality Products. However, on rare occasions, products may be found to be faulty or defective. You must tell us of any Product faults within 20 days of the date on which we sent you the OrderConfirmation relating to those Products. To report any problems, please contact us on email@example.com. We will endeavour to respond to all customer service requests within 48 hours. We will only refund or replace items where required to do so by law and may require photographic evidence of the faulty or defective Products.
Printed Materials - DELIVERY
We use a third party printer to create Products through the Printed Materials Service, and our third party suppliers deliver the Products to the relevant addressee. We will use our reasonable endeavours to fulfil your order by the estimated delivery date set out in the Dispatch Confirmation, generally within 5 working days UK, 10 working days Europe or 14 working days internationally unless there is an Event Outside Our Control. If we are unable to meet the estimated delivery date because of an Event Outside Our Control, we will contact you with a revised estimated delivery date.
Delivery is deemed to take place when the goods are delivered to your addressee’s nominated address, whereupon the risks of loss and all damage and all other risks pass to the addressee.
We retain title in the goods until payment is received by us in full and no refunds will be issued if we have not received payment in full for the ordered item(s).
If you order Products for delivery to one of the International Delivery Destinations, your order may be subject to import duties and taxes which are applied when the delivery reaches that destination. Please note that we have no control over these charges and we cannot predict their amount. You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order.
Printed Materials - PAYMENT
You agree to pay the prices for the Products as set out on our site from time to time. Although we endeavor to keep prices as accurate and up to date as possible sometimes errors do occur. If a price error has occurred we will inform you of this at the time of order.
OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
We may transfer our rights and obligations under this EULA to another organisation, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under this EULA.
You may only transfer your rights or obligations under this EULA to another person if we agree in writing prior to such transfer.
If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under this EULA, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
Each of the conditions of this EULA operates separately. If any court or competent authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining conditions will remain in full force and effect.
Please note that this EULA, its subject matter and its formation, are governed by English law. You and we both agree that the courts of England and Wales will have non-exclusive jurisdiction. However, if you are a resident of Northern Ireland you may also bring proceedings in Northern Ireland, and if you are resident of Scotland, you may also bring proceedings in Scotland.
