    1 Background and Service Description 

    Compose provides The Compose Low-Code Platform and the other websites under all domains operated by Compose Software AS (collectively, the “Sites”). Compose also provides (optional) hosting services, low-code software, tools, and related services (together with the Sites, the “Service”). The Service is offered as a Software as a Service (SaaS). 

     The Service is offered through various plans (“Plan“), with different price structures and included content, as further described under Pricing in the menu. This Agreement applies to all Plans and for any use of the Service. 

     As the Service is offered on a Software as a Service basis, the customer acknowledges that the functionality in the Service may change. The Service is not tied to any specific version of the underlying software. 

     By using the Sites and the Service in any way, you are agreeing to comply with these Terms of Service, our Privacy Policy and any other legal notices or conditions or guidelines posted on the Sites. The Agreement enters into force when Customer ticks off the acceptance button or otherwise starts using the Service and remains in force until terminated in accordance with Section 8 below. Unless your Account is on an Enterprise Plan, this Agreement is the entire Agreement between Compose and Customer. 

     The Service is available for individuals aged 13 years or older. If you are age 13 or older but under the age of 18, or the legal age of majority where you reside if that jurisdiction has an older age of majority, then you agree to review this Agreement with your parent or guardian to make sure that both you and your parent or guardian understand and agree to this Agreement. 

     If you are entering into this Agreement on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind such entity, its affiliates, and all users who access the Service through your account to this Agreement, in which case the terms “you” or “your” shall refer to such entity, its affiliates, and users associated with it. 

     2 Service Fee and Payment Terms 

    Customer shall as consideration for using the Service pay to Compose such fees as is applicable for the Plan that you use, see Pricing in the menu (the “Service Fee”). All fees and prices are excluding VAT and other public duties and taxes. 

    All paid plans must enter a valid payment account. Free accounts are not required to provide payment account information. An upgrade from the free plan to any paying plan will immediately bill you. 

    For monthly payment plans, Compose will invoice Customer in advance on a monthly basis for the Service Fee. For annual payment plans, the Service is billed in advance for a one (1) year period. There will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service, upgrade/downgrade refunds, or refunds for months unused with an open account. 

    Payment shall be made no later than 14 days after receipt of an invoice from Compose. Any amount not paid when due will bear interest from the due date until paid at a rate equal to [1]% per month ([12.68]% annually).
    Customer is not entitled to set off the Service Fee against any claim Customer has towards Compose.
    Compose reserves the right to adjust the Service Fee with effect from any Renewal Term (see also Section 17).

The processing may also be based on our legitimate interest in finding the best candidate for the position (GDPR Article 6 (1) (f)), or your consent (GDPR Article 6 (1) (a)). 
    • Ensure compliance and legitimate interests: Compose may also process personal data in order to comply with statutory obligations to which Compose is subject, and to safeguard own or third parties’ legitimate interests, e.g. in relation to establishing a legal claim or preventing unauthorized access to or disclosure of personal data GDPR Article 6 (1) (f)). 
    • Legal obligations: Compose may process personal data due to legal obligations applicable to the operation of Compose (GDPR Article 6 (1) (c)), such as accounting obligations. 

    Compose may, on a case-by-case basis, process personal data for other purposes and rely on different legal grounds, such as consent or legitimate interest or, in accordance with applicable data protection law, as set forth in an applicable privacy notice. 

     Please note that we, in order to be able to enter into agreements or fulfill our obligations according to agreements entered into with you or someone you act on behalf of, depend on receiving a variety of information, such as contact information. The consequences of not providing such information are that Compose cannot fulfill the contract entered into with you or be able to enter into agreements with you. 

    4 Retention Period 

    Compose will retain your personal data for as long as it is necessary to fulfill the purposes for processing as defined above. Please note that continued storage may be necessary due to statutory obligations to which Compose is subject to e.g. statutory rules related to storage for accounting purposes, or due to Compose’s legitimate interests, e.g. for the purpose to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim. 

     5 Disclosure to Third Parties 

    We will only disclose your personal data to third parties to the extent we have a legal basis for such disclosure. 

     We use data processors to collect, store and otherwise process personal data on our behalf. The relationship to such suppliers is governed by a data processor agreement, which inter alia ensures information security for your personal data. 

     Compose may process and store your personal data outside the EU/EEA. All processing in a third country will be subject to mechanisms ensuring sufficient security for your personal data, such as EU Standard Contractual Clauses or an adequacy decision from the EU Commission, in addition to all necessary required steps under applicable law in order for such transfer of your personal data to be compliant with applicable law, including additional technical and organizational measures. 

    You may opt out of having your personal data shared with third-parties. However, if you limit the way Compose uses your personal data, certain features of the Service may not be available to you. 

    You can read more about our sub-processors and other third-parties in our list of sub-contractors. 

    6 Security 

    Compose values your privacy rights and has taken reasonable steps to protect the users’ privacy, including by implementation of physical, technical and organizational measures, to prevent loss, alterations, theft and unauthorized access to information stored and otherwise processed.    

     7 Third Party Websites and Social Media 

    Compose’s websites may include links to other third-party sites. These third-party sites have their own privacy policies that determine how personal data are collected and processed. If you submit personal information to any of these third-party sites, your information is governed by their privacy policies. Compose takes no responsibility for such third-party sites, how they are operated and how they process your personal data. We recommend that you familiarize yourself with such third-party sites’ privacy policies and terms of use when visiting and using such sites. 

    When you “like” or join any of our social media accounts, this will be shared with the relevant platform. The same applies to any activities on our social media accounts, such as content posted by you or posts that you like. The relevant social media platform has its own privacy policies, in which you can find more information about the processing of personal data in relation to such social media platforms. 

     8 Your Rights 

    As a data subject, you are entitled to request access to the personal data we process about you, request that Compose updates or corrects your personal data and/or withdraw any consent to processing. In some circumstances, you are also entitled to request that your personal data is erased, request restriction of processing or object to processing and/or request data portability. In order to utilize your rights, you may contact Compose by using the contact information stipulated in section 1 above. 

     You are also entitled to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you believe that Compose’s processing of your personal data is contrary to relevant data protection laws. 

     9 Changes to the Privacy Policy 

    If Compose makes changes in the processing of personal data, this policy will be updated, and the change will be notified on the webpage or by use of your contact information. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices.
