Welcome to PicThrive!

2. SERVICE AND SOFTWARE TERMS
2.1 Service Subscription.
The Service includes, but is not limited to, an online photo and video sales, analytics and marketing platform, as well as an API allowing you to connect the Service to third party services, designed for tour and activity operators. Except as otherwise provided in the Terms and Conditions, Adventure Soup grants you a non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, non-assignable, revocable, limited subscription to use the Service through the PicThrive website, the Software and registered accounts (each, an “Account“) (collectively, “Subscription“). You acknowledge that no title or ownership interest in the Service or Subscription is transferred or assigned to you and that the Terms and Conditions is not a sale of any right to the Service or Subscription.
2.2 Software License.
The Software includes, but is not limited to, a photo and video display and sales application that interacts with the Service. Except as otherwise provided in the Terms and Conditions, Adventure Soup grants you a non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, non-assignable, revocable, limited license to install and use the Software on any computer(s) and mobile device(s) involved with your business. You acknowledge that the Software is licensed to you, that no title or ownership interest in the Software is transferred or assigned to you and that the Terms and Conditions does not constitute a sale of any right to the Software.
2.3 Using PicThrive.
PicThrive may require hardware including, but not limited to, a computer or mobile device and an Internet connection. You agree to provide all hardware and the Internet connection required to use PicThrive and to pay all fees incurred by you when accessing PicThrive through an Internet connection.
You are required to register an Account in order to use certain aspects of PicThrive. You may choose to permit third parties to access your Account by connecting a third party to your Account or by a third party requesting access to your Account through a Service notification (each a “Connected Login“). Alternatively, you may choose to allow multiple users to access your Account through a single login. A Connected Login receives limited access to your Account and may make changes such as adding or deleting files but cannot, for example, change your password, close your account or change credit card information associated with your Account. Additionally, a Connected Login may request to share in sales you make through the PicThrive point of sale system and, if such a request occurs, you will be clearly presented with the request and your options and, if you choose to accept the request from the Connected Login, you agree to such portion of sales being split with the Connect Login (“Connected Login Proceeds“). Adventure Soup strongly recommends that you verify the identity of each person who you are considering granting access to, or who is requesting access to, your Account.
2.5 Username and Password.
Registering an Account requires you to select a user name and password (“Login Information“). You may change the password associated with your Account at any time. You are solely responsible for keeping Login Information confidential. You agree to be bound by any use of your Login Information and use of your Account, including by a Connected Login, whether or not you authorized such use. If you become aware of, or reasonably suspect, unauthorized use of your Account you must immediately change the password that is part of your Login Information and notify Adventure Soup. Any reports of, or questions concerning, unauthorized use may be emailed to Adventure Soup at email@example.com.
2.6 Information Collection.
3. SALES, COMMISSION AND REMITTANCE
3.1 Sales, Pricing and Commission.
PicThrive allows you to sell photos and videos to your customers, as well as gifts based on these photos and videos that are printed and delivered by third parties (the “Gift Store“). The price for photos and videos is suggested automatically but can be altered at any time by accessing the photo and video pricing page within PicThrive. If you collect payment for PicThrive sales through your own point of sale system, Adventure Soup charges you a transaction fee (the “Transaction Fee“) or, if Adventure Soup collects payment on your behalf, a commission, which is calculated as a percentage of each transaction (the “Commission“). Adventure Soup uses third party software and services (such as Stripe) to collect the Transaction Fee and Commission and remit Proceeds (as defined below), which may require you to maintain an active account with such third party or to provide additional information in order to receive funds owed to you. Adventure Soup is not liable to you for the actions of any third party we engage to collect and remit the Transaction Fee and Commission. The Transaction Fee and Commission are detailed at picthrive.com/plans/.
3.2 Processing of Sales and Commission.
You acknowledge and agree that Adventure Soup shall, on your behalf, facilitate sales made through PicThrive by charging your customers for purchases, deducting processing fees, refunds, returns and chargebacks and associated fees, Connect Login Proceeds and other charges and our Commission and remitting the remainder to you (“Proceeds“). Proceeds are remitted within a reasonable time frame following the transaction in question, excluding Gift Store Proceeds. Gift Store Proceeds are calculated based on total monthly Gift Store sales and remitted when Gift Store Proceeds held on your behalf are equal to or greater than $1,000.00 USD following the end of such month (the “Remittance Threshold“). You are not entitled to Gift Store Proceeds of less than the Remittance Threshold, which will be carried over until the end of the month in which Gift Store Proceeds meet the Remittance Threshold. Adventure Soup may elect, in its sole discretion, to remit Proceeds to your Account, rather than as set forth in section 3.1, and deduct the Transaction Fee and Commission from available funds in your Account. You acknowledge and agree that you have no right to, and shall not request, an audit or otherwise review or challenge any calculation or remittance of Proceeds.
3.3 Transaction Fee Remittance.
You shall provide Adventure Soup with a valid credit or debit card to be charged at the end of each month for Transaction Fees you incurred during such month, which shall be billed and charged automatically to such credit card by Adventure Soup and third parties authorized on our behalf. Adventure Soup may provide you with additional payment methods, which shall be billed at the end of each month as set forth above.
3.4 Returns and Chargebacks.
You acknowledge and agree that Adventure Soup has sole discretion to determine whether to issue any refund and to dispute chargebacks on your behalf concerning sales made through PicThrive and to decline a transaction made through PicThrive based on a fraud likelihood analysis.
You are solely responsible for charging, collecting and remitting taxes on all sales you make through PicThrive. You shall indemnify, defend and hold Adventure Soup harmless from any liability for, or assessment of, any claims or penalties with respect to such taxes, including any liability for, or assessment of, withholding taxes imposed on Adventure Soup by the relevant taxing authorities with respect to any Proceeds paid to you.
4. SUBSCRIPTION FEATURES AND SUPPORT
PicThrive features available to you are subject to change at any time, on one or more occasions, at Adventure Soup’s sole discretion without notice or compensation to you. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Adventure Soup shall notify you of any change to the Transaction Fee and Commission through an email or Service notification, such changes taking effect immediately in the case of a reduction in the Transaction Fee and/or Commission and, in the case of an increase, 30 days from the date of notice. The current Transaction Fee, Commission and related terms are detailed at picthrive.com/plans/.
Adventure Soup may provide you and your customers with PicThrive technical and customer support on such terms as set forth at picthrive.com/plans/ (“Support“). Support terms are subject to change at any time in Adventure Soup’s sole discretion without notice or compensation to you.
5. TERM, TERMINATION AND SUSPENSION
The Subscription and Software license granted to you in the Terms and Conditions terminates upon the earliest of:
- Adventure Soup’s termination of the Terms and Conditions, Subscription or Software license and that may occur without notice or reason;
- your failure to pay any amount owed to Adventure Soup;
- your termination of the Subscription by notifying Adventure Soup at firstname.lastname@example.org; or
- your non-compliance with the Terms and Conditions or Code of Conduct (as defined herein).
Adventure Soup may suspend your Subscription and/or any Account associated with your Subscription at any time without notice or compensation to you for any reason including, but not limited to, violation of the Terms and Conditions and whether a suspension is lifted is at Adventure Soup’s sole discretion.
Upon termination you are not entitled to a refund of any kind. You shall pay any outstanding amounts, taxes, duties and charges as of the date of termination. You are not entitled to Proceeds upon termination unless your Subscription was terminated pursuant to section 5.1(c). Upon termination you shall not be permitted to access PicThrive, although your customers may continue to access their orders. Notwithstanding the foregoing, where your Subscription is terminated, Adventure Soup may choose, in its sole discretion, to delete all information associated with your Account, including customer orders.
