Any reference to “we”, “our”, or “us” in these TOU shall also refer to Hookdeck and / or its Representatives.
In these TOU, a Website visitor or Services user may be referred to as “you” or “your”. When a Website visitor has created an account in order to be able to use the Services, he or she may be referred to as a “User”.

In addition to the more specific rules found elsewhere in these TOU, you agree that by interacting with the Services in any way, you agree to:
In order to be able to use the Services, you will be required to create an account. Accounts are available to any individual who signs up for an account on the Website. Accounts may be approved or rejected by Hookdeck, which shall be at our sole discretion.
As part of the User account registration, you will be asked to create an 8-character password. It is your responsibility to create a password of sufficient strength that cannot easily be discovered by third parties. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and are responsible for all activities that occur under your account, whether by you or any third party. You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security regarding your account. You will be able to change your password at any time.
You can also log in to the Services from your valid Google or GitHub account. By selecting this option on the account page, you will be redirected to either the Google or GitHub log-in page, as applicable. For more information, see the section on General External Links and Services below.
If you are a Logged-In User, it is strongly suggested that you log out of your account at the end of every session, or not leave a logged-in account unattended for any period of time. Hookdeck and its Representatives will not be held liable for any losses or damages, direct or indirect, pecuniary or non-pecuniary, resulting from your failure to log out at the end of the session, an unattended logged-in session, or a third party using the Services with your Account Information and accessing your account through any means, and disclaims any responsibility in this regard.
Hookdeck reserves the right to suspend or terminate your account, at its sole discretion, at any time and for any reason, including but not limited to whether you have violated the letter or spirit of the TOU, as more fully described hereinbelow.
Once you create an account, you will be prompted to create your first workspace (you are permitted to create an unlimited number of workspaces). Within the workspace that you’ve created, you will be able to design and customize your webhook infrastructure, subject to the limitations of the payment plan that you have selected.
The “Pricing” page on our Website explains the different payment plans available to you for use of our Services, as well as the different features available under each plan. It is possible to use the Services for free indefinitely, subject to the limits of what is available with the free plan. You can upgrade your payment plan (and the nature of Services available to you) at any time.
A first-time User of the Services will be eligible for a one-time 30-day trial period, which includes all features available to a User paying for the highest-level payment plan. Once the trial period is over, your account will automatically switch over to the free plan, unless you select and pay for a specific payment plan.
At Hookdeck’s sole discretion, new features may be released in connection with a specific payment plan. If you are already paying for access to a specific payment plan, you will automatically have access to such new features. If not and you would like access to the newly released features, you will have to upgrade your payment plan.
Technical support is made available by Hookdeck to all Users on a commercially reasonable basis, which services may be available to Users via live chat on the Website, email or Slack.
All Credit Card Billing Information is collected by the Third-Party Payment Processor on their own secured servers. Hookdeck does not have access to any credit card information, nor can it be responsible for any breach of information caused by faulty programming or malicious users on the servers of the Third-Party Payment Processor. Non-financial information will, however, be available to Hookdeck for record-keeping purposes .
Regardless of the type of payment plan that you select, payment is due monthly (unless otherwise agreed to by Hookdeck in writing). In selecting a payment plan, you authorize Hookdeck, or Stripe on Hookdeck’s behalf, to charge your credit card for the amount associated with your payment plan at the beginning of each month. In addition to the monthly fees for the payment plan that you have selected, you may also be charged for additional webhook events (in excess of what is otherwise provided by your payment plan) in the amount of $5 per 1,000,000 events. Any such additional fees will be added to your regular monthly fees.
Prices displayed on the Website are firm and in U.S. dollars. Prices do not include applicable sales taxes, which shall be displayed during the checkout process, depending on your location.
You can downgrade or cancel your payment plan (and the nature of Services available to you) at any time on your account page or by communicating with us. Services commensurate to your payment plan
will continue to be available to you through the end of your current billing period.
