ACCESSING AND USING OUR SITE AND THE LUMO SERVICES IS THE EQUIVALENT OF YOUR SIGNATURE AND INDICATES YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND THAT YOU INTEND TO BE LEGALLY BOUND BY THEM.

SOFTWARE TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Software: LUMO Playground and LUMO Playmaker are prepaid, monthly subscription services that provide access to the entire LUMOplay games library (Playground) and all the Motion Maker templates (Playmaker). LUMO Playground and Playmaker subscription content (version 4.1 or higher) are intended for the Windows OS that meets our minimum software, operating system, and hardware specifications.
Subscription Term: Access to the Software is based on a subscription model (each, a “Subscription”). Depending on your plan, you will receive access to the Software for a set period of time (e.g., monthly or annually), after which your access to the Software will revert to a basic free version, unless you renew your Subscription in accordance with the terms and conditions which are then in effect.
Number of Seats: The Subscription may be subject to terms which restrict the number of users under each Subscription, as set out in your plan and communicated to you through the Site or otherwise by us, in writing. If you would like to increase the number of users for your Subscription, you may purchase additional seats through your Account.
Right to Access: Subject to the terms hereof, we grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable right to access the Software and the content displayed or accessed by, through or in the Software, during the term of your Subscription. No other right, interest or licence is granted to you. The features available to you will depend on your plan. We may change features from time to time.
Plan Types: We offer free memberships and paid Subscriptions to the Software. Advertised prices and features may change. Please consult our Site for our current plans. Please note that while some aspects of the LUMO Services may be offered without fees (for example, LUMOplay Free), all of these service offerings remain subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. LUMOplay Free is offered for use for commercial evaluations and by approved not-for-profit organizations (for example, home installations, public schools, or registered not-for-profit agencies), only.
Fees: You must pay all fees (plus any applicable taxes) during your Subscription period and any renewal periods. If any applicable fees change, such change will take effect on the next regularly scheduled billing period, for your Subscription.
Free Trials and Discounts: We may offer free-trial or discounted Subscriptions. When a free-trial period or discount period ends, you must upgrade to a paid plan in order to continue using the Software. We reserve the right to determine your eligibility for, and the length of, your free trial or discounted Subscription, in our sole discretion.
Refund Policy: Except as set out in this paragraph. All Subscription fees are non-refundable. We will not provide refunds or credits for any partial Subscription periods or unused Software. If you cancel your Subscription, you will not be refunded or credited any portion of your last paid Subscription fee, however, you will be able to access your plan to the end of your Subscription period (subject to deletion in accordance with our retention policies, as outlined below). If you change your Subscription during its term, we will pro-rate your payments and apply an adjustment. This means that if you upgrade to a higher fee Subscription, we will charge you the higher fee for only that portion of the billing period during which your Subscription is upgraded. If you downgrade to a lower fee Subscription, we will credit the difference between the higher fee and the lower fee, for the remainder of the applicable billing period, and apply a credit to your next scheduled payment.
Automatic Renewal: To the extent permitted by applicable law, Subscriptions automatically renew at the end of each Subscription period unless cancelled beforehand. Monthly Subscriptions renew for thirty (30) day periods (subject to adjustment in the case of any month that has more or less than 30 days) and annual Subscriptions renew for one (1) year. You must pay the applicable fee (plus any applicable taxes) when each renewal period starts.
Non-Transferrable: Your Subscription and your rights thereunder may not be transferred without our written consent, which we may withhold in our sole discretion.
Cancellation: You can cancel your Subscription anytime through your account. Visit LUMOplay.com, sign in to your account, and go to https://www.lumoplay.com/account/home. Choose Modify Subscription or Cancel Subscription to make changes to your services. No refund will be issued for any time remaining in your current Subscription period and you will lose access to any games or custom Motion Maker content that was downloaded under your Subscription when your payments end. This content can be re-accessed by purchasing these items directly through the Site or by renewing your Subscription.
If you breach this Agreement, we may, at our option:
- Terminate your access to the Software immediately, with or without advance written notice.
- Suspend, delete, or limit access to your account or any content within it.
- To the extent permitted by applicable law, retain any amounts payable to you (which you forfeit).
- Switch you to a basic free version of the LUMO Services.
If we delete your account for a breach of this Agreement, you may not re-register without our written permission, which we may withhold in our sole discretion. Upon any expiration or termination of this Agreement, except as expressly otherwise provided in this Agreement (including if we have switched you to basic free version of the LUMO Services):
- You shall cease all use of any Software. This means you will lose access to any content which you may have saved on your devices or in your account, as and if permitted by the Software.
- We may disable your access to the Software.
- All payments that are due to us as of the effective date of termination of this Agreement shall remain due and owing, by you.
Payment Terms: Your purchase of a Subscription requires you to provide a valid credit card, which will be associated with your account. You authorize us to automatically debit your credit card in the payment amount and at the frequency associated with your Subscription, as set out on our Site from time to time. Your Subscription will automatically renew at the end of your Subscription period, at the then-applicable cost and billing frequency for your Subscription, unless you cancel your Subscription before it expires. Information about cancelling your Subscription is set out above.
If you have purchased access to the Software from an authorized reseller, then your payment terms will be dictated by the reseller. Your access to the Software and your Subscription are subject to your continued compliance with the terms set by the reseller, as well as the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
Support: We offer support for your use of the Software, subject to the terms and conditions of our Support Policy. Support and the proper functioning of the Software are conditional upon your adherence to our Best Practices. Click here to see LUMOplay’s Best Practices.
