You should never submit to the RStudio Service any data which consists of personally identifiable information, credit card information, or protected health information, as such terms are defined by relevant laws, rules, and regulations. RSTUDIO IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONFIDENTIALITY, AVAILABILITY, SECURITY, LOSS, MISUSE OR MISAPPROPRIATION OF ANY DATA YOU SUBMIT TO THE RSTUDIO SERVICE OR ANY APPLICATION MADE AVAILABLE VIA THE RSTUDIO SERVICE.

Types of Accounts; Price Changes; Payments; Refunds; Upgrading or Downgrading Your Plan. RStudio allows you to share, without charge, up to that number of Your Applications and for up to that number of hours per month as is set forth at http://www.rstudio.com/products/shinyapps/ under the free plan entitlements (the “Free Plan”). You acknowledge and agree that with respect to Applications uploaded under the Free Plan, RStudio’s branding will appear in the Applications. One person or legal entity may not maintain more than one free account.

RStudio also offers paid plans under which You may share additional Applications and increase the hourly entitlement, subject to Your payment of the applicable fees to RStudio when You place Your order for a paid plan as set forth at www.rstudio.com (a “Paid Plan”). The RStudio branding will not appear in Applications uploaded under a Paid Plan and Paid Plans may have additional features and functionality which are not available to You under the Free Plan as described at http://www.rstudio.com/products/shinyapps/. All fees for Paid Plans are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties, excluding only United States (federal or state) taxes. ALL PAID PLAN PURCHASES ARE FINAL AND NO REFUND WILL BE GIVEN FOR UNUSED PORTIONS OF YOUR INITIAL OR ANY RENEWAL PAID PLAN SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD.

If you upgrade from the Free Plan to any Paid Plan, we will immediately bill you using the credit card you have provided.

For monthly payment plans, the RStudio Service is billed in advance on a monthly basis and is non-refundable. For annual payment plans, the RStudio Service is billed in advance on an annual basis and is non-refundable. All Paid Plans will automatically renew for successive monthly or annual periods, as applicable, unless you cancel your account prior to the renewal date.

The RStudio Service will prorate subscription changes. If a monthly subscription is upgraded or downgraded during a given month, the prorated additional charges or the credit will be applied at the next billing cycle. For subscription changes between different intervals, a credit is applied for the unused portion of the old plan, and a charge is generated for the new plan thereby resetting the billing cycle. Note that if we charge for the new plan, and that payment fails, the plan change will not go into effect.

Prices of all Paid Plans are subject to change upon 30 days notice from us; provided, however, that, if you are currently a Paid Plan subscriber, we will honor your existing Paid Plan pricing for 90 days from the date of our notice. Such notice may be provided at any time by posting the changes to the RStudio website for the RStudio Service or as otherwise provided under the Notifications and Service Messages section below.

You are solely responsible for properly canceling your account. You may cancel or downgrade your Paid Plan account by visiting your “Account” page and selecting “Downgrade” or “Cancel”. Cancelation of a Paid Plan will downgrade your account to the Free Plan. The cancelation or downgrade of a Paid Plan will go into effect immediately. There will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service, upgrade/downgrade refunds, cancelation refunds, or refunds for months unused with an open account. In order to treat everyone equally, no exceptions will be made. Cancelation of your Free Plan will result in the deletion of all information and data from your account and such information and data cannot be recovered after cancelation of your Free Plan.

RStudio, in its sole discretion, has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the RStudio Service, or any other RStudio Service, for any reason at any time. Such termination of the RStudio Service will result in the deactivation or deletion of your account or your access to your account, and the deletion of all information and data in your account.

Any Disputes shall be resolved by final and binding arbitration under the rules and auspices of the American Arbitration Association, to be held in Boston, Massachusetts, in English, with a written decision stating and legal reasoning issued by the arbitrator(s) at either party’s request, and with arbitration costs and reasonable documented attorneys’ costs of both parties to be borne by the party that ultimately loses.

If you are involved in a Dispute as a consumer without any commercial interests related to the Dispute, we will agree to conduct arbitration proceedings in a major City in your State if travel to Boston would constitute an undue burden for you, and we will advance any arbitration fees that exceed what you would have had to pay for court proceedings (if you substantiate and represent to us in a written statement what court proceedings would have cost) provided that you shall refund such amounts if we ultimately prevail in the arbitration.

General Terms.

Severability.

You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use or purchase certain other RStudio services or applications or third-party content or third party software.
