These Use Terms are a contract between you and us and govern your Roadmap Studios Service use. Agreeing to these Use Terms is a condition of any Roadmap Studios Service use. You signify your agreement to these Use Terms and are legally bound by them from the date on which you:
- Click to accept or agree to these Use Terms where Roadmap Studios presents an option to do so, either on the Website or otherwise; or
- Use the Services in any way, in which case you understand and agree that your Roadmap Studios Service use will signify your acceptance of these Use Terms from the moment you first begin to use the Roadmap Studios Service.
This is version 2.0 of these Use Terms and their effective date is 2020–06-06.
A “transaction” (as defined in the CPA) between you and us may or may not fall under the provisions of the CPA depending upon whether certain of our Customer’s threshold values are below a certain value at the time the transaction is entered into.
The threshold values relate to a Customer’s asset value or annual turnover, and the value against which they are measured is as determined by the Minister of Trade and Industry by publication in the Government Gazette from time to time.
Our duties towards you may vary depending upon whether the transaction in question is subject to the CPA, and we will rely on information you give us in order to determine whether the CPA applies. Consequently:
- You warrant that any statement you make to us regarding relevant threshold values is accurate.
- We may require you to provide us with the supporting financial statements as proof of any threshold values which you may represent as being below the relevant values, or in the event it appears that the CPA applies to our contract with you in the form of these Use Terms.
- You agree that we may hold you liable for any losses we sustain as a result, if you misrepresent any threshold values and we are subsequently penalized as a result of our reliance on your misrepresentations.
You agree that we may, in our sole discretion, amend these Use Terms at any time, in any way and from time to time. We will publish details of our proposed amendments to these Use Terms in a notice to this effect on our Website. This notice will identify the specific amendments we propose making to these Use Terms and the date on which these proposed amendments will become effective.
You agree that such a notice will be adequate notice of the proposed amendments and that these amendments shall automatically come into effect on the date specified in this notice. You further agree that it is your responsibility to review these Use Terms regularly in the event that we do publish a notice of proposed changes. Your continued use of the Roadmap Studios Service (except where your continued use of Roadmap Studios Service is permissible in terms of, for example, specific licenses) will be subject to you agreeing to the amended Use Terms.

The Roadmap Studios Service
Our Website details the Roadmap Studios Service which, broadly, comprises the following components:
- Support Service;
- Related Software Products.
We grant you a limited and non-exclusive right to use the Roadmap Studios Service (subject to any other applicable licenses such as the GPL) solely for the purposes which the Roadmap Studios Service is intended for and as permitted by the licenses applicable to the Roadmap Studios Service components. This right is not transferable to any other person unless we agree.
You agree that, except where the nature of the Roadmap Studios Service requires otherwise, each component of the Roadmap Studios Service constitutes a separate and distinct service, and we are not necessarily obliged to render two or more components of the Roadmap Studios Service as a single, indivisible service.
Our products are licensed under the GPL (click here to find out more about the GPL).
When you purchase paid Products, you will receive access to a Support Service for those Products for a period of one year. You may renew the Support Service for your paid Products on the anniversary of your paid Products’ purchase. For more information about the Support Service, read below.
As we pointed out above, when you purchase paid Products, you will receive access to a Support Service developed to support the specific paid Products you have purchased. The Website contains more information about the specific Support Service you receive with each paid Product purchase. The corresponding Support Service is valid for 1 year from the date of your purchase, regardless of which paid Product you purchase, after which time the Support Service will come to an end.
Support Services are only available to you and you may not transfer them to any other person without our express, written consent. We may refuse to give consent for this at our discretion.
We may need temporarily access to your website admin environment and other platforms dependent of the plugin to debug an issue for example. By failing to comply, we will suspend support until the required access is provided from your end.
Roadmap Studios grants users a Content License in respect of Roadmap Studios’ Intellectual Property which forms part of the Services.
To the extent that any copying, reproduction, distribution, transmission, display, broadcasting or publishing of any Content is expressly permitted (such permission to be interpreted in its most restrictive sense) users may do so, provided that all trademarks, trade names and all copyright, ownership, proprietary and confidentiality notices included on or in relation to the Content are retained and displayed without alteration or modification and not in any manner obscured or removed.
Users are further required, as a condition of this Content License, to clearly and expressly attribute Roadmap Studios as the Content’s source.
Users acknowledge that they do not acquire any ownership rights or rights to use the Content except where explicitly permitted to do so. In the event Roadmap Studios revokes the Content License, users may no longer use the Content.
Changes to the Services

- the date on which these proposed changes shall be implemented.
Changes to the Roadmap Studios Service may, at our sole discretion, require consequential changes to fees payable for and delivery timeframes applicable to the aspects of the Roadmap Studios Service affected by the changes. We will similarly notify you of any such changes to fees payable or delivery timeframes.
Subscription fees are payable in advance. By purchasing a Subscription, you authorize us to charge your payment method immediately and on a pre-pay basis for the Subscription period indicated. We may, in our sole discretion, suspend any aspect of the Roadmap Studios Service which you have not paid for.
To avoid a potential disruption to your Subscriptions, we offer automatic renewal, and it is enabled by default for all purchases. Unless you notify Roadmap Studios before the end of the applicable Subscription period that you want to cancel, your Subscription will automatically renew, and you authorize us to collect the then-applicable monthly or annual fee (which may change) for such Subscription (as well as any taxes that Roadmap Studios has the legal obligation to collect or pay) using any credit card or other payment mechanism we have on record for you. To cancel, you can remove your credit card from the My Account page.
We stand behind our products and your satisfaction with them is important to us. However, because our products are digital goods delivered via internet download we offer no refunds.
Without detracting from any of our rights, you agree that we are entitled to discontinue any aspect of the Subscription you may be using if you fail to pay any amount when it falls due or if you breach these Use Terms. In the event we incur expenses to recover amounts you owe us, you further agree that we may recover our legal costs on the attorney and own client scale, collection charges and tracing fees, and any applicable VAT.
