2. Organisation, which can alternatively be a school, university, company, public authority or organisation, non-profit organisation, self-employed or any other legal entity (“Organisation”).
1. WeSchool has created and is the exclusive owner of an online platform called “WeSchool” (“Platform”) aimed at promoting access to culture and education, which allows various forms of interaction between users for sharing their knowledge and skills within an interactive community, in which everyone can be both creator and user of educational, training and professional services (“Services”).
2. The users of the Platform are both the subjects who create and make available on the Platform their Services and subjects who search for and use the Services on the Platform (“Users”).
3. The Platform allows the creation of groups of Users, identified by specific codes, that can be participated only by the Users receiving the relevant invitation (“Group”).
3. Scope and execution of the Contract
1. By executing this contract (“Contract”), upon the payment of the price (if any), the Organisation purchases a maximum number of licenses of the Platform to be used by Users belonging and/or connected to the same Organisation, according to the plan autonomously chosen by the Organisation during the purchase procedure as better detailed in article 4 below (“License”).
4. The individual executing this Contract in the name and on behalf of the Organisation represents and warrants to have the powers to act in the name and on behalf of the Organisation and to cause the Organisation to be subject to this Contract, in compliance with the law and the bylaws and/or internal regulation of the Organisation.
4. Characteristics of the Organisation Licenses
1. During the purchase procedure, the Organisation is free to select the following terms and conditions of the plan of the Licenses (“Plan”): i) maximum number of Licenses (“Maximum Threshold”); ii) type of Organisation (e.g. school, company, public authority); and iii) billing period (e.g. month, year).
2. The Licenses are anonymous, and the Organisation is free to select, within the Maximum Threshold, the Users that will use the Licenses (“Selected Users”). During the Contract, the Organisation may modify the Selected Users, by increasing or decreasing the number of Selected Users (always within the Maximum Threshold) or by substituting Selected Users with new Selected Users.
3. The Licenses can be used inside an unlimited number of Group linked to the Organisation and they are managed by the Selected User having the role of “administrator” of the Organisation.
5. Price and terms of payment
1. The price of the Plan (if any) is shown in the purchase procedure and vary according to the type of Plan (e.g. lite, pro, enterprise) and the Maximum Threshold (“Price”). WeSchool may update the Price, provided that the new Price will be applicable only starting from the following billing period without prejudice to article 13.1.3 below.
2. If the number of Selected Users using the Licenses is lower than the Maximum Threshold selected by the Organisation in the purchase procedure, the Price will not change and the Organisation will pay the Price indicated in the purchase procedure. This article applies also in case a lower Maximum Threshold may be applicable to the Licensed used by the Selected Users of the Organisation.
3. If, on the other hand, the number of Selected Users using the Licenses is higher than the Maximum Threshold, WeSchool will immediately inform the Organisation. In case the Organisation continues exceeding the Maximum Threshold after WeSchool’s notice, the Price will be automatically increased in accordance with the Price provided for the applicable Maximum Threshold of the same Plan. WeSchool will inform the Organisation and the new Price will be immediately applicable starting from the billing period in which the Maximum Threshold has been exceeded. Consequently, for sake of clarity, if the Organisation in the purchase procedure selected the Plan “pro” and the Maximum Threshold of 250 (two hundred fifty) and, notwithstanding WeSchool’s notice, the number of Selected Users using the Licenses is 280 (two hundred eighty), starting from the billing period where the Selected Users are 280 (two hundred eighty), the Organisation will pay the Price for the Maximum Threshold applicable to 280 (two hundred eighty) that is 500 (five hundred) Licenses of the same Plan “pro”.
5. The payments shall be made within the expiry date of the billing note. WeSchool may immediately suspend the Contract if the Organisation does not pay within that period.
