This version of the Terms is effective from 15 May 20203.
Notwithstanding the provisions specified in these Terms of Service, if you are a consumer, i.e., a person purchasing the Services outside the scope of your business activity, the rights and obligations are specified in the Addendum to these Terms of Service: https://bemensa.com/addendum-for-consumers/
1.1. Upper case pronouns “We“, “Us” and “Our” refer to Bemensa s.r.o., with registered office at SNP 2349/13, Ústí nad Labem-centrum, 400 11 Ústí nad Labem, ID number: 08841977, incorporated under the laws of the Czech Republic, registered at Regional Court in Ústí nad Labem under file no. C 44648.
1.2. Pronouns “you” and “your” refer to you as a customer of the App, course, or other agreed services (collectively, the “Services“) including services offered through www.bemensa.com (the “Website“) and the App. If you are using the Service on behalf of a legal entity, then you, as an individual, represent that you have the authority to bind that entity to the Agreement, and “you” and “your” also refer to that entity.
1.4. “Authorized Users” are you, your employees, consultants, contractors, and agents who are authorized by you to access or use the Services under the rights granted to you pursuant to the Agreement.
1.5. “Documentation” are documents describing features of the Service, requirements for its use, and implementation. A non-exhaustive list of documentation is available on the Website and in the App.
1.6. “Resultant Data” are data related to your use of the Services that are used by Us in an aggregate and anonymized manner, including statistical and performance information related to the operation of the Services.
1.7. “Your Data” are data, instructions, materials, and other content that is provided by Authorized User, or that We receive by or through the Service. Your Data does not include Resultant Data.

2.1. To commission the Service, We need you to arrange all organizational conditions and provide all assistance in accordance with the Documentation, required by these Terms, or otherwise necessary to make the Service operational without undue delay, but no later than 5 days from request.
2.2. Unless we agree otherwise, We will commission the Service by providing you with access details to use the Service. You may check that the Service has been commissioned correctly within 3 days of receiving the access details (“acceptance period”). Within the acceptance period, you must confirm that the Service has been commissioned correctly or report any detected defects. Once you confirm that the Service has been commissioned properly or if you do not report any defects within the acceptance period, this constitutes your acceptance of the proper commissioning of the Service. Further, acceptance of the proper commissioning of the Service occurs if you begin to use the Service beyond its testing.
2.3. If you request any modifications to the Service (for example, additional functions or courses), this is a request for extra work. Upon receipt of such request, We will propose the terms and conditions for its delivery (in particular: time, price, cooperation requirements, etc.). Unless we agree otherwise, negotiations on extra work shall not affect your obligation to accept the Service and pay the agreed price. If we agree to the terms and conditions, you will pay Us the price for extra work based on an invoice issued before We start the extra work.
3. Services AND INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS
3.1. Subject and conditioned on your and Authorized Users’ compliance with the Agreement, We hereby grant you a non-exclusive, non-transferable right to use the Service during the term of the Agreement, solely for use by Authorized Users in accordance with the Agreement. Such use is limited to your internal use.
3.2. Nothing in the Agreement grants any license or other right to any intellectual property rights in or relating to the Service, or Third-Party Materials. All rights to the Service and the Third-Party Materials are and will remain with Us and the respective rights holders. You do not acquire any rights except as expressly set forth in Section 3.1 or in the applicable third-party license terms. By entering into the Agreement or, as the case may be, by the creation of such data, you assign to Us all rights relating to the Resultant Data. We reserve the right to make changes to the Service that We deem necessary or useful to comply with applicable law, and enhance the quality of Service, cost efficiency, or performance.
3.3. We may suspend, terminate, or otherwise deny your, Authorized User’s, or any other person’s access to or use of the Service, without incurring any resulting obligation or liability, if:
a) We receive a judicial or governmental request or order that requires Us to do so,
b) We believe that you or any Authorized User has failed to comply with the Agreement or used the Service beyond the scope of rights granted or for a purpose not authorized under the Agreement; or that you or Authorized User has been, or is likely to be involved in fraudulent or unlawful activities,
c) you do not pay the fees when due, or We receive a chargeback.
4. Use Restrictions

a) copy, republish, display, distribute, transmit, sell, rent, lease, loan, or otherwise make available in any form or by any means all or any portion of the Service,
b) modify, create compilations or derivative works of the Service, remove, or alter trademarks, Documentation, disclaimers, or notices from Services,

5. Your Obligations
5.1. You shall maintain and operate Your Systems in accordance with the Documentation and Our recommendations, provide Our personnel with such cooperation as is necessary for Us to commission or provide the Service, and provide all cooperation and assistance as We may reasonably request to enable Us to exercise Our rights and perform Our obligations under and in connection with the Agreement.
5.2. If you fail to provide Us with cooperation or fail to fulfill any other obligation under the Agreement, this constitutes an obstacle that prevents Us from performing Our obligations under the Agreement and entitles Us to suspend the performance of the Agreement. The duration of the obstacle for which We are unable to perform is calculated from the first day on which the obstacle occurs until the moment you inform Us of its removal. The deadlines for the performance of Our obligations under the Agreement are automatically extended by the duration of the obstacle and the time necessary to restore the continuity of Our performance to you.
5.3. If you become aware of any actual or threatened activity prohibited by Section 4.1, you must, and must cause your Authorized Users to, immediately take all reasonable measures within their respective control that are necessary to stop the activity and to mitigate its effects (including by discontinuing and preventing any unauthorized access to the Services and erasing data to which any of them have gained unauthorized access) and notify Us of any such actual or threatened activity.
5.4. You are solely responsible for:
a) Your Systems and the fact that they meet the requirements set out in the Documentation. If you do not meet these requirements, the Service may not function properly or at all,
b) legality of the processing of Your Data. In particular, you are responsible for ensuring that you are entitled to provide Us with all of Your Data and that Our use and processing of Your Data for the purpose of providing the Service does not infringe any third-party rights, in particular intellectual property rights or privacy rights or obligations under any law or regulation. You are required to inform persons whose personal and other data You transfer to Us of such transfer, and to obtain consent to such transfer of personal data where necessary,
c) use, security, and protection of access details from unauthorized use; and
d) all access to and use of the Service through Your Systems or the access details of Authorized Users, including all results obtained from such access or use and all conclusions, decisions, and actions based thereon.
6. Fees and Payment
6.1. Unless we agree otherwise (e.g., in a written and signed Agreement), you shall pay Us the fees in accordance with the currently effective price list immediately upon conclusion of the Agreement. We may change the price list, institute new fees, or increase the fees for the next renewal term by providing written notice to you prior to the commencement of such term. The obligation to pay the fees is not tied to your actual use of the Service. In the event that You do not use the Service, this shall not affect Our right to payment of the fees in full. Unless expressly set forth herein, the fees are non-cancelable and non-refundable.
6.2. Price for certain Services (e.g. the HR platform) may depend on a designated number of Authorized Users per relevant subscription term. If you exceed the number of Authorized Users in any subscription term, you shall also pay Us the applicable fees set forth in our price list, such fees for excessive use are due at the end of each subscription term.
6.3. All fees and other amounts payable by you under the Agreement are exclusive of taxes and similar assessments. You shall make all payments without any deduction or charge in respect of taxes, tariffs, bank, or other charges. If We are required to make any such deduction or charge, You shall pay Us any additional amounts necessary to receive the full (net) amount stated on the invoice which We would have received without deduction or charge under the additional invoice.
6.4. Payment of the price shall be made via (available payment method may differ according to the Service):
a) Stripe payment gateway. This payment method is subject to separate terms and conditions available at: https://stripe.com/en-cz/legal/ssa. The price is due immediately after the conclusion of the Agreement and payment instructions will be displayed to you immediately. This is the default payment method that applies in case of Agreements concluded via Our Website.
b) Purchasing system of the AppStore or Google Play. This payment method is subject to separate terms and conditions available within the store. In this case, the price is also due immediately after the conclusion of the Contract, and payment instructions will be displayed to you immediately. This is the default payment method that applies in case of Agreements concluded via AppStore and GooglePlay, or
c) Bank transfer based on the invoice issued by Us. You are required to use any payment identifiers (e.g., variable symbol) specified when making a payment. The Price is due within 7 working days of the Agreement’s conclusion. This is the default payment method that applies in the case of printed and signed Agreements.
6.5. If you fail to make any payment when due, then in addition to other remedies:
a) We may charge interest on the past due amount at the rate of 0.5% per each commenced day of delay or, if lower, the highest rate permitted under applicable law,
b) You shall reimburse Us for all costs incurred in collecting any late payments or interest, including attorneys’ fees, court costs, and collection agency fees, and
c) We may suspend the provision of the Service until all past due amounts and interest thereon have been paid, without incurring any obligation or liability to You or any other person by reason of such suspension.
6.6. We reserve the right to immediately suspend access to the Service, without prior notice, in the event we receive notice of a chargeback (as defined below). Contacting your bank or credit/debit card provider and rejecting, canceling, or contesting the charge of any amount payable in connection with your use of the Service (“Chargeback”) will be considered a breach of your payment obligations under the Agreement. We also reserve the right to dispute any chargeback received. We may take reasonable steps to restrict your future access to our Service if We believe that you have maliciously requested a chargeback.
7. Premium – applies only for the provision of the app

There is also a premium version which includes, for example, access to all matrices and video lessons for all six levels, unlimited practice of all tests, and learning the right answer in the partial tests. You will be able to use the premium version for a 3-day trial period for free. After the expiration of the trial period, You will not be allowed further access to the premium version until you pay the price which is available in the App. However, We may agree individually to provide You with the premium version for free or at a lower price.
7.2. Information about the exact scope of the premium version is provided directly in the App. However, such information is for informational purposes only and does not constitute an offer to provide You with the paid services, nor We are obligated to provide You with the paid services. Section 1732(2) of Act No. 89/2012 Coll., Civil Code, as amended, does not apply.
7.3.
