Except for your use of QR codes you produce through our services, which you are free to use for any lawful purpose subject to payment of the applicable subscription fees described below under “Subscriptions”, you must not access or use for any commercial purposes any part of any of our Sites or any services or materials available through any of our Sites.
We may, from time to time, offer certain subscription services on or through one or more of our Sites, including, without limitation, Flowcode Free and Flowcode Pro. We reserve the right to suspend, withdraw or terminate any subscription service at any time in our sole discretion, whether paid or free, provided that we will issue a pro-rata refund of any prepaid fees for services purchased but not rendered as of the date of such withdrawal or termination.
If you sign up for Flowcode Free, your first twenty Flowcodes will be free. In order to generate any additional Flowcodes, you will need to sign up for Flowcode Pro (see below for further information).
If you sign up for Flowcode Pro, you will pay a subscription fee of US$9.95 per month that will be automatically billed to your provided payment method each month. Subject to payment of the foregoing fee, your Flowcode Pro subscription will enable you to generate unlimited Flowcodes. Your Flowcode Pro subscripton also includes one custom-designed Flowcode. You understand and agree that we may feature your custom-designed Flowcode on any of our Sites or other promotional materials for marketing purposes. The Flowcode Pro subscription auto-renews on a monthly basis, but you may cancel this subscription at any time by clicking “Cancel Plan” under the “Flowcode Plan Subscription” section of the Billing page in your account and cancelling your subscription to the Flowcode Pro plan. If you cancel your monthly subscription before the end of the then-current monthly billing period, you will be issued a pro-rata refund for the remainder of that month. Also, if you cancel your Flowcode Pro subscription at any time, only your twenty most scanned codes will remain active, and all remaining codes will be archived and re-directed to flowcode.com. Analytics will not be available for archived codes.
If you purchase or sign up for any of the subscription services we make available through our Sites, you agree that:
- Your purchase may be subject to foreign exchange fees or differences in prices based on location (e.g. exchange rates).

- All of your purchases of subscriptions are subject to the Company’s refund policy, described below under “Refunds”.
- We may calculate taxes payable by you based on the billing information that you provide us at the time of purchase, which taxes you agree to pay in full.
