Such modifications shall be deemed effective immediately upon posting on Materialise Cloud website. Any continued use of the website shall be deemed conclusive of your acceptance of the modified terms and conditions, the legal disclaimer of Materialise NV and other policies.

Your Materialise Cloud Account

When you use our Services, you provide us with your 3D models (your “Content”). These are yours and the Terms do not give us any rights to Your Content except for those limited rights that are necessary to enable us to offer the Services to you.

Your conduct and content must comply with these Terms and the Acceptable Use Policy. However we are not responsible for the Content you upload via the Services.

Free trial

Upon your creation of an account by filling in some basic information (“Account”), you can use the Services privately with a limitation of 10 free trial uploads which are valid for a 1-year period from the date of registration on the website. Registering for the free trial does not require any billing information and you can start using the Services right away.

Online Packages

Online Purchases

After you have either used your limited free trial uploads or you have reached the validity period of your free trial package, you can extend your access to the Services by purchasing an Online Package.

When clicking through to payment for your Online Package, you will be redirected to the dedicated secured payment web portal of our verified billing partner, Avangate. By purchasing an Online Package, you agree to be bound by Avangate’s terms and conditions, privacy policy and refund policy. For more information on Avangate, see http://www.avangate.com/.

Downgrades

Your Online Package will remain valid until it reaches the 1-year expiration date. For continuing your use of the Services upon having consumed your uploads, you have to purchase a new Online Package.

All Content you have uploaded during your online subscription period will remain private under your account and will not be shared or accessible by third parties.

Changes

We may change the fees of the Online Packages, but we will give you prior notice of these changes via your email address which is linked to your Account.

Materialise Cloud API Accounts

For using the Services directly from your application you can integrate with the API. All API integration requests are handled case-by-case. If you contact us, we will work out a solution by mutual agreement that perfectly meets your needs.

Links to other websites

From our website, you can visit other third party websites by following hyperlinks to these sites. Whilst Materialise strives to provide only links to useful and ethical websites, it has no control over the content and nature of these sites and the links to other websites does not imply a recommendation for all the content found on these websites. Please be also aware that when you leave our website, other sites may have different privacy policies and terms which are beyond our control. Materialise therefore advises users to check these themselves and consult the privacy clause that is compulsory on every website. Without limitation, Materialise is therefore not responsible nor accountable for any hosting, content, rules, website stability and use by you of any third party websites.

No waiver

You may not assign any of your rights under these Terms, and any such attempt will be void. Materialise may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services.
