The terms and conditions below (“Customer Agreement”) supplement and amend the Terms of Service (“ToS”), available at https://betterfridays.com/legal/terms. If there is any conflict between the Customer Agreement and the ToS, the applicable terms in the Customer Agreement will prevail. Capitalized expressions not defined in the Customer Agreement have the meaning set out in the ToS.
A Customer (Business Customer or Personal Customer) is solely responsible for what happens with his Account he or she owns on the Service. As a Customer (having control of the Owner Account) it might, for example, be possible to enable, disable or otherwise change settings, options and much more. The Customer of an Account is responsible for actions concerning the Account, including causing wanted or unwanted use, disclosure, loss, modification or deletion of any Content, Accounts or Accounts.
The Customer on an Account is considered an intermediary with the obligation to regulate actions and Content of Accounts with access to the Account. The Customer on an Account is at all times entirely liable for all acts and omissions by people actively or passively allowed to access the Account.
Unless explicitly authorized in writing by the other Party, neither Party shall disclose to any third Party any confidential Information of the other Party, nor use such Confidential Information in any manner other than to perform its obligations under these ToS. Confidential Information within the context of this Customer Agreement means any non-public information and/or materials that can reasonably be understood to be confidential and is provided by a Party under this Customer Agreement to the other Party. For example, a good indicator that material is considered confidential is if the word Confidential is featured prominently in the header or footer. This does not cover how we handle Content on our Service.
The foregoing restrictions do not apply to any information that is publicly disclosed through no fault of the receiving Party, is already lawfully in the receiving Party’s possession and not subject to a confidentiality obligation to the disclosing Party, becomes known to the receiving Party from a third party having an apparent bona fide right to disclose the information, or is confidential Information that the receiving Party is obligated to produce pursuant to an order of a court of competent jurisdiction or a valid administrative subpoena, provided the receiving Party supplies the disclosing Party with timely notice of such court order or subpoena.
We are proud of all our Customers. We reserve the right to showcase the name and logo of any Customer in lists, online or any promotional material as well as verbally refer to them as Customer. If You would like Us to cease using Your logo and name please contact Us at email@example.com Better Fridays reserves the right to contact You to ask You for quotes and/or to participate in the writing of a Customer Case outlining the results of using the Service to be published and disseminated.
Some of our Services are billed on a subscription basis (fittingly called “Subscription” and “Subscriptions”).
You agree to pay for Subscriptions that You purchase or use, according to the pricing and payment terms presented to You on an order form, on our Service, or in, in special circumstances, on a Subscription offer sent by one of Our employees (an “Offer”).
Billing Cycle and Billing Periods
You can choose to pay for a Subscription on a monthly basis (“Monthly Billing”).This “Billing Cycle” governs the length of the “Billing Period”, the time for which a Subscription is paid.
A Billing Period is entered when a Subscription begins or is modified or when You change Your Billing Cycle. The day a Billing Period commences is called the “Start Date” of a Billing Period. The “End Date” of a Billing Period depends on the Billing Cycle.
With Monthly Billing, the End Date of a Billing Period is on, or close to the same date the next month. For example, if You are paying with Monthly Billing and You start a Subscription on the 15th of October, You will have the 15th of November as the End Date for the Billing Period.
In the case that the Start Date is close to the end of the Month, You can experience that the End Date over time will shift back some days to stay within the Month. For example, a Customer with Monthly Billing entering a Billing Period with a Start Date on October 31 will have a corresponding End Date on November 30. The End Date will not automatically shift forward again in longer months.
Automatic Renewal and Recurring Billing
You hereby agree to automatic renewal of Subscriptions. This means that any Subscription You purchase will renew at the end of its Billing Period, unless You cancel it before. That is why they are called Subscriptions.
By registering a credit card with Better Fridays, You hereby agree to recurring billing. You authorized Us (or a designated third-party provider) to bill and automatically charge Your Credit Card on the (or close to the) same date every Billing Period, starting from the time a Subscription is bought or updated or You change Your Billing Cycle. What You are paying for depends on Your choice of Subscription and can be seen at checkout, on Our pricing page at Your Account or specified in an Offer.
Please be aware that the price of a Subscription might depend on certain usage parameters, for example the number of Subscriptions sign up thru an Account. You hereby accept that any changes affecting a Subscription during a Billing Period (e.g upgrades, downgrades, additional or cancelled subscriptions, additional usage, fees) are automatically reflected in the next bill sent to You.
Payment Terms, Taxes and Functionality
Payments for Subscriptions must always be made in advance and payment is due immediately when Subscribing and will be considered unpaid if it remains unpaid. Costs of Subscriptions may include fees for payment card processing of up to 4% of a Subscription price. What the Customer is paying for depends on his or her choice of Subscription and can be seen at the checkout date.
Better Fridays Subscriptions are pre-paid and non-refundable. Better Fridays does in general not provide refunds or exchange for any partial time of use of its Service, any remaining Credits, data or Content except when required by law or explicitly stated in an Offer. In the event that the credit card registered with Better fridays is invalid for payment for any reason, or an invoice has otherwise been left unpaid then the Subscriptions assigned to the Customer Account will be lucked.
All prices might be stated exclusive of taxes (VAT or otherwise), which may or may not be added to the price, depending on applicable law and Your legal residence. You are responsible for paying any applicable local taxes or fees.
From time to time we might give insight into when and which new features on Our Service are expected to be available. Buying decisions should not depend on this information, as we cannot guarantee them. We reserve the right to adjust the prices, fees, functionality, and usage limits or other limitations for the Service and Subscriptions from time to time. Adjusted prices for active Subscriptions shall take effect earliest upon Your subsequent Billing Period of the Service following the date of the price change.
You might change Your Subscription or the way You Pay, entering a new Subscription while already in a Billing Period. If You change or add a Subscription or change your Billing Cycle in a way that results in Us billing You more, You automatically accept an additional payment in line with Your upgraded Subscription and a calculation process called “Proration” can take place.
Proration occurs for example if an existing Subscription is upgraded to a more expensive one, if You add an additional Subscription to Your Subscriptions, if a Subscription exceeds the usage limit. To be clear, Proration can never lead to Us paying out any amounts to You.
Proration means that We will calculate how much of the current Billing Period You have already used on a day-by-day basis, calling the remaining unused but paid for amount the “Prorated Amount” and subtracting it from Your new Invoice as a discount. For example, You are paying for one Subscription with Monthly Billing in a Billing Period with Start Date on November 15 and End Date on December 15. If it is December 10 and You add an additional Subscription, the Prorated Amount is the amount corresponding to the remaining 5 out of 30 days of use. You will enter a new Billing Period with Start Date on December 10 and You will be issued a new invoice based on the two combined Subscriptions, minus the Prorated Amount.
Better Fridays may offer limited access to Subscriptions (referred to as “Trials”). When using a Trial, You are granted access to the features of a given Subscription on an Account for a limited use or time (the “Trial Period”), disclosed at the outset of the Trial.
If You have already registered payment information on the relevant Account or Account, the Trial will automatically turn into a paid Subscription with Monthly Billing at the end of the Trial period, if it is not cancelled before.
You may have the possibility to acquire virtual currency (“Credit”) for Your Account or for an Account for certain actions You or third-parties perform. These actions may be, but are not limited to, signing up, referring people to use Better Fridays, reaching an activity milestone or completing a survey.
Although the Credit may be visualized in EUR or other currencies, this Credit is no legal tender, does not hold inherent value and cannot be refunded, transferred or exchanged for cash, goods or services. It can and may not be traded, sold, bought or exchanged with third parties. However, Credit You have earned can and will automatically be used to reduce the amount to be paid on bills for Your Subscriptions. In doing so, Credit is used up.
We reserve the right to allow for or stop ways to receive or use Credit at Our discretion. Any given Account can only accumulate Credit of up to a virtual equivalent of 300 EUR. We reserve the right to remove any Credit after 3 months without use.
Termination of Subscriptions
As a Customer, if You wish to cancel a Subscription, You may do so via the billing page in the settings on Your Account. You may cancel a Monthly Subscription at any time and a Yearly Subscription at any time in advance of the end of the Billing Period. Access to the additional features or limits of the Subscription will stay accessible until the end of the Billing Period. At any point in time, only the Owner Account of an Account can set in motion the start, end or change of a Subscription his or her Account.
If You successfully cancel or otherwise terminate a Subscription in a Billing Period, You will not have to pay for the next upcoming Billing Period. For example, if You are paying with Monthly Billing from 14th to 14th of each month and terminate the Subscription on the 13th of one month You will not be billed on the 14th of that month for the next Billing Period.
In case of non-payment for any reason or any violation of this Customer Agreement, Better Fridays shall be entitled - without liability - to immediately bar access to the Service and/or parts of the Service and/or bar access to paid Subscriptions, and/or to terminate an Account You are in control of. In practice, Better Fridays will make reasonable efforts to inform You of unsuccessful, invalid or missing payments before taking such steps.
Should an Account or Account be terminated, You agree and acknowledge that Better Fridays has no obligation to retain Content and that such Data may be irretrievably deleted if the deleted account was removed longer than 30 days prior to the request for renewed access.
You agree and acknowledge that Better Fridays has no obligation to retain the Content on an Account, and may delete such Content without prior notice, if the Customer has materially breached this Customer Agreement, including but not limited to failure to pay outstanding fees, and such breach has not been cured within twenty (20) days of notice of such breach; or upon termination of this Customer Agreement for any reason.
As a Customer, it is Your responsibility to keep the contact and payment information for the Account current. If We have reasonable grounds to suspect that information You provided for an Account is untrue, incomplete, not up to date or otherwise misrepresenting or deceiving, We reserve the right to suspend or permanently terminate Your Account, Your use of the Service or parts of the Service and/or access to any Account You are a Customer for.

GDPR Resource Center
Last updated July 22, 2019
On May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) became fully enforceable across the European Union (EU), creating a higher standard for data protection, privacy, and security for the processing of personal data from the EU. The GDPR applies to the processing of personal data regardless of where that takes place in the world and impacts any company that handles personal data of EU citizens and others within the EU.
The GDPR is an attempt to strengthen and modernize EU data protection law and enhance individual rights and freedoms, consistent with the European understanding of privacy as a fundamental human right. The GDPR regulates, among other things, how individuals and organizations may obtain, use, store, and remove personal data. In a nutshell, it's giving EU citizens and residents control over their personal data while simplifying the regulatory environment for international business that takes place in the EU.
The Data Protection Principles include requirements such as:
Personal data collected must be processed in a fair, legal, and transparent way and should only be used in a way that a person would reasonably expect.
Personal data should only be collected to fulfil a specific purpose and it should only be used for that purpose. Organizations must specify why they need the personal data when they collect it.
Personal data should be held no longer than necessary to fulfil its purpose.
People covered by the GDPR have the right to access their own personal data. They can also request a copy of their data, and that their data be updated, deleted, restricted, or moved to another organization.
Why is it important?
GDPR adds some new requirements regarding how companies should protect individuals' personal data that they collect and process. It also raises the stakes for compliance by increasing enforcement and imposing greater fines for breach. Beyond these facts it's simply the right thing to do. At Better Fridays we strongly believe that your data privacy is very important, and we already have solid security and privacy practices in place that go beyond the requirements of the GDPR.
Does Better Fridays offer a DPA?
Better Fridays is committed to GDPR compliance and there are no shortcuts when it comes to meeting these requirements. We offer a data processing addendum (DPA) for our customers who collect data from folks in the EU. Our DPA offers contractual terms that meet GDPR requirements and that reflect our data privacy and security commitments to our customers.
Our DPA is already part of the Terms of Service, so no further action is really needed on your part. But if you have any special DPA needs, feel free to contact us. You can always link to https://betterfridays.com/legal/dpa in case you need to provide documentation that Better Fridays is indeed a GDPR compliant data processor or download the page as a PDF.
Is Better Fridays GDPR compliant?
Yes, Our Terms of Service have been updated to reflect strict GDPR requirements & compliance. We work with the best in the market to ensure complete compliance and data safety so you can rest easy.
An extensive standardized DPA has been added as an extension of our Terms of Service and includes both the relevant information on data processing along with a list of sub-processors.
We have turned every stone and examined every detail in our design by meticulously reviewing our product, its processes and procedures to make sure we meet the necessary GDPR standards:
# Obligation Status Compliance Milestone
1 Privacy Policies / Legal Compliant Updated policies and contract language and DPAs
2 Data Protection / Security Compliant Updated guidelines, implemented two-factor authentication, audited vendors and IT systems.
3 Data Subject Rights (DSR) Compliant Developed processes for DSR requests.
4 Data Management / Mapping Compliant Completed data mapping and inventory of systems that manage personal data, including implementation of data retention guidelines, data minimization standards, and de-identification methods.
5 Awareness / Training Compliant Conducted training and implemented additional data controls at the functional level.
6 Data Breach Notification Compliant Updated enterprise Security Incident Response Plan and Database access logging.
Which Sub-Processors does Better Fridays use?
We only work with industry standard service providers for Our Service to be able to supply a service that is up to the highest standards of availability, stability, security and privacy. In other words, we are building on the shoulders of giants. We provide a full and up-to-date list of our Sub-Processors that You can review, if necessary.
Are your Sub-Processors also GDPR compliant?
Yes, we have in place written Data Processing Agreements (“DPA”) with all of Our Sub-Processors.
Training and Awareness
We've formed a core privacy team of leaders from each area of the Better Fridays business, headed by our internal Data Protection Officer (DPO). The representatives in this group are the project managers who will ensure all the requirements of GDPR are covered from Marketing to Engineering to People Ops.
We have reviewed and identified all the areas of Better Fridays where we are collecting and processing Customer data; categorizing and taking inventory of everything from cookies to help desk conversations. Using this matrix we have validated our legal basis for collecting and processing personal data and double checked that we are applying the appropriate security and privacy safeguards across our entire infrastructure and software ecosystem.
Having a managed data protection impact assessment (DPIA) process is a requirement for GDPR. A DPIA process is simply a way to help us identify and minimize the data protection risks of a project. The Better Fridays engineering team has always undergone security and privacy due diligence when making tooling and implementation decisions, so this requirement is an easy one for us.
Any time we introduce a change to the way we handle personal data, we spend time discussing the potential impact on Customers of Better Fridays and possible privacy and security risks to personal data. If any risk is identified, no matter how small, our product and engineering teams collaborate on a solution that will mitigate the data privacy and security risk to anyone who interacts with the Better Fridays platform. We will continue to execute this risk assessment process as we expand the Better Fridays offerings.
We already have in place a breach management and communication plan and have updated this existing process to comply with the GDPR regulations concerning the escalation process and requirements for data subject notification.
