Terms and Conditions

The following Terms and Conditions apply to all contracts and services rendered between PayDevs (hereinafter referred to as "PayDevs", "we", or "us") and its customers with regards to our web services at https://www.paydevs.com (hereinafter "the Website") and the related subdomains hosting registries (e.g., https://npm.paydevs.com), payment and payout systems, as well as APIs (hereinafter collectively "PayDevs Services"). These Terms and Conditions constitute a material part of each agreement unless expressly agreed otherwise in writing. Any differing terms or conditions by the user only apply with written consent by PayDevs.

By registering and creating an account with the PayDevs Services or logging into the PayDevs Services via third-party authentication, the user agrees to be bound by these terms and conditions. Your contract with us includes these Terms and our Privacy Policy, and you acknowledge that you have read and understand them and agree to be bound by them.

PayDevs Services are offered to consumers (hereinafter referred to as "private users") as well as business customers (hereinafter referred to as "corporate users"). Private users are natural persons who conclude the respective legal transaction for a purpose which is outside their trade, business or profession. Corporate users are employees working for companies and receiving a salary. PayDevs allows that freelancers and members of NGOs register as private users - but PayDevs will handle their account as a consumer and not as a business and prepare invoices or extract sales taxes.

Corporate users and private users will hereinafter collectively be called "users" or "customers" - even if they did not pay for the services (e.g., in the case of maintainers uploading software to PayDevs Services). Developers of software packages with the right to publish built packages (a.k.a. building or compiling libraries) are hereafter called "maintainers".

In order to collect payments from users and make payouts to maintainers, PayDevs cooperates with Stripe Inc. and PayPal Inc. (hereinafter referred to as "payment processors").

PayDevs reserves the right to modify these Terms and Conditions with effect for the future at any time. PayDevs will notify the customer of these changes. If the customer does not object within two weeks after receipt of the change notification, the changes will be deemed accepted by the customer. PayDevs will inform the customer about the customer's right to object and about the effects of a lack of objection. If the customer rejects the changes, PayDevs has the right to terminate the agreement.

1. PayDevs Services

PayDevs offers to store software packages (a.k.a. software libraries or software modules) with a specific version in special databases or package managers (hereinafter referred to as "registries") and constraints the access to these registries via paid accounts. If a package is uploaded to one of PayDevs registries it will hereafter be called "private package", while packages in public registries will be called "public packages".

PayDevs may continuously improve and expand its PayDevs Services. The customer is not entitled to any functionality. In case of unforeseen events, PayDevs is entitled to suspend the PayDevs Services for maintenance or repair purposes if this is necessary to ensure the proper operation of the PayDevs Services.

PayDevs is entitled to use the assistance of third parties in order to fulfill its contractual obligations.

1.1. PayDevs Website

PayDevs offers a Website for users to register as a maintainer, private user, or corporate user in order to publish, access, and search for packages on PayDevs Registries. For this, the Website is connected to registration and payment processes offered by different payment processors.

1.2. PayDevs Registries

PayDevs offers multiple registries for different programming languages, where registered users can publish, access, and search for packages.

Beside hosting private packages, PayDevs provides public packages from public registries via uplinks (e.g., https://npm.paydevs.com has an uplink to https://registry.npmjs.org). When you access public versions via our services, data is processed both by us and by the responsible provider.

Public packages are in sync with public registries - if possible - and ready for consumption with command line package manager tools such as npm, maven, composer, etc.

1.3. PayDevs APIs

PayDevs offer APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) to access packages, user accounts, and customer data on PayDevs Services.

PayDevs is not responsible for the services or the usage of services of third parties, that use the PayDevs API to access this data. PayDevs can only ensure the functionality of the interfaces in according with the availability provisions in these terms of service in so far as such functionality lies within PayDevs's scope of influence. In particular no liability can be accepted for the interfaces' possible lack of compatibility or accessibility where the defects lie in a third party supplier's software.

While we have a first-come, first-served policy on package names, PayDevs tries to sync package names with public registries in order to prevent dependency confusion or dependency attacks.

If you want to publish a package it is advised to create the package with a specific scope and name on the public registry first and then upload to PayDevs registry. Upon publishing a new package, the publisher will be made owner of the package on PayDevs Registries.

If someone wants to take over a package, and the previous owner agrees, the existing maintainer can add them as an owner, and the new maintainer can remove them. If necessary, the team may reach out to inactive maintainers and help mediate the process of ownership transfer.

Using an automated tool to claim ownership of a large number of package names is not permitted. We reserve the right to block traffic or revoke ownership of any package we determine to have been claimed by an automated tool.

You may be offended by Content that you see on the Service. You may find some of it to be inaccurate, offensive, indecent, or objectionable. However, you agree not to hold us responsible in any way for your use of our Service, including your exposure to Content.

The agreement between PayDevs and the customer can be concluded online via the Website. A right to claim a user account does not exist; PayDevs expressly reserves the right to reject a user account without stating reasons.

To order a subscription plan, the customer must choose a subscription plan, enter his account information, enter billing information on the payment processor's website, and click on the button "Order Now" (or similar) to make a binding offer to order the choosen subscription plan.

We reserve to adjust fees for subscription plans and user accounts at any time. In such an event, the change shall affect existing contracts at the beginning of the following billing period.

3.1. Customer's Rights and Obligations

The customer is entitled to use our Services only to the extent described hereafter. PayDevs Services do not include any legal advice or consultancy (e.g., of data protection, consumer information, copyrights, competition or professional association nature). The customer alone is responsible for compliance with these obligations.

The customer represents and warrants that all personal information as well as other relevant contractual data provided by the customer during the conclusion of the agreement is complete and correct. The customer is obliged to promptly inform PayDevs about any changes to this data and/or to update altered data in its customer account. In the event of a culpable breach of this obligation, PayDevs is entitled to suspend the contractual services.

The customer is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of credentials for authentication used to access our Services and login data provided by PayDevs. The customer agrees to immediately inform PayDevs of any unauthorized use of the customer's user accounts, credentials for third party authentication or login data provided by PayDevs, any breach of security or misuse or suspected breach of security or misuse of PayDevs. The customer will exit user accounts at the end of each session if they take place using a shared computer. PayDevs cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from the customer's failure to comply with this clause.

Several constraints are attached to creating and keeping an account:

  • The user accounts are non-exclusive, non-transferable and non-sublicensable.
  • The user accounts must be used by only one real natural person.
  • The user must choose the correct plan for his context; esp. he may not register as an private user and use it for work.
  • The user must keep the password and credentials secret and protect it against any wrongful use by unauthorized third parties.

See the sections in "PayDevs Policies" for further rights and obligations - esp. acceptable use.

The customer is aware that contractual declarations (e.g. confirmation emails, changes to the Terms and Conditions and other notifications) may be sent via email. They are deemed to have been received when they can be retrieved in the email inbox which was specified by the customer while creating an account under normal circumstances. PayDevs processing of the customer's data is specified in PayDevs Privacy Policy.

Upon conclusion of the agreement, PayDevs grants the customer the non-exclusive, non-transferable and non-sublicensable right to use our Services during the term of the agreement to the extent that is appropriate to use the PayDevs Services according to the agreement. The right of use shall expire once the customer defaults with any payments due.

Unless otherwise agreed between the parties, PayDevs is entitled to refer to the collaboration with the customer and the contractual product and to depict the Customer’s logo for self-promotional purposes.

3.2. Payments

The fees for our Services used by the customer are displayed in the customer account. They depend on the chosen subscription and the number of user accounts available to the customer. If not explicitly stated otherwise, all fees are quoted exclusive of the statutory value-added tax (VAT) and payment processor fees - applicable at the time.

PayDevs accepts the payment methods as shown in the customer's user account on the Website (e.g. credit cards). Payments are processed by our partnering payment processors. Terms and Conditions of involved payment processors (e.g. PayPal) apply in addition to ours.

Fees are due at the beginning of each billing period. If the customer’s payments are considerably delayed, PayDevs reserves the right to suspend the provision of any further services, in particular the customer’s access to our Services, at the expense of the customer until all due payments have been made. In the event of suspended services, the customer is nevertheless obliged to pay the agreed fees. After having set the customer a reasonable deadline and expiration of that deadline, PayDevs has the right to terminate the agreement with immediate effect. In case of returned direct debits or unpaid checks, the customer shall reimburse PayDevs for the costs incurred to the extent that the customer was responsible for the event given rise to these costs. Further claims and rights to which PayDevs may be entitled in this respect shall remain unaffected. Even if the customer does not use the provided PayDevs Services, the customer is still obliged to pay the agreed fees.

Invoices will be sent to the customer via email, unless expressly agreed otherwise. Any complaints relating to an invoice must be submitted to PayDevs in writing or by email to payment@paydevs.com within four weeks upon receipt of the invoice. If no such complaint has been made within four weeks upon receipt of invoice, the invoice is deemed to be accepted.

3.3. Changing Plans

The contract term for the use of our Services is determined by the billing period selected with the subscription plan. Where an automatic contract prolongation has been selected, the contract will be prolonged automatically upon the expiry of the contract term by the same period, insofar as it has not been previously canceled using the customer's user accounts on PayDevs Website.

The customer can change the chosen subscription plan via its user accounts at any time, with fthe following limitations:

  • If the customer reduces its plan to a cheaper plan or fewer user accounts, the recurring fee will be reduced accordingly as per beginning of the next billing period. The next billing period is visible in the cutomers user accounts and depends on the chosen subscription plan.

  • If the customer chooses to upgrade its plan to a more expensive plan or adds more available user accounts, the recurring fee will instantly be increased accordingly. If there is still any unconsumed usage quota from the previously existing contract it will be credited to the customer or offset against the invoice for the new subscription plan.

3.4. Terminating Plans

PayDevs reserve the right to an early extraordinary termination of the contract for important reasons. An extraordinary termination is permitted in particular if the customer remains in default with payment obligations for two months or if the customer is insolvent, subject to insolvency proceedings, insolvency proceedings have been commenced or the commencement of insolvency proceedings is dismissed due to lack of assets. Where necessary, a written warning concerning the objectionable conduct must precede the extraordinary termination.

The customer has no right for compensation if his account is cancelled or terminated before the next billing period.

In case of contract termination, the customer is responsible for saving any data stored in our Services before the contract expires.

4. Payouts

A maintainer of a package hosted on one of our Registries is entitled to a portion of the collected money, split over 12 months (as we are based on annual subscriptions). PayDevs pays out only to maintainers who have an account within our Services. A share is calculated based on the users per month of his package(s) that we can measure, and entitles him to a portion of the money collected from the payments (split for each month).

PayDevs will only payout to one maintainer per package as defined in the public repository. PayDevs is not responsible for a fair or correct payout to all maintainers and contributors of an open-source project. If you have a complaint or need for mediation you may contact us any time, for example on our Discord Server or via email to payout@paydevs.com.

PayDevs will withhold a payout, if we suspect fraud, misrepresentation, deception, ransom, self-dealing, violations of intellectual property, or other illegal purposes incl. the sale of personal information, or the processing of personal information in violation of any laws. This includes other attempts to game PayDevs Services in order to obtain money by fraud. In case of disputes we will freeze the money until a legal ruling can be enforced.

To the extent permitted by law, under no circumstances and under no legal theory will PayDevs be liable to you or any other person for any payout that is less than $100 in total. Transfer fees will be charged to the receiver of the payout.

At the end of a month, PayDevs will calculate the number of users and the resulting share of the money pool. PayDevs will pay out the resulting amount in USD for that month within 90 days after the end of the month (we aim for a maximum of 30 days, but may need more time in the initial phase of PayDevs).

If we cannot disburse the money to one of your bank accounts, etc. - for whatever reason - we will hold the money for up to one year (i.e. 12 months), re-introducing the money back into the money pool starting from the thirteenth month. We are not responsible for delay or misapplication of any Payout because of incorrect or incomplete information supplied by you or a bank, or for failure of a bank to credit your account. PayDevs is not responsible to pass through interests and might pass through negative interest rates.

PayDevs is not responsible or liable to compensate you if PayDevs systems were hacked, your passwords were stolen, or someone other than you had access to your account and changed your bank accounts for withdrawals. The same is valid is you incorrectly stated your banking account. In the event of fraud, theft or other illegal activity, we will assist law enforcement in finding the culprit. It is your responsibility to file a report with the local police and notify us immediately so that payouts can be frozen until the problem is resolved.

The user is responsible for paying taxes on the payouts in the country in which the user resides or is subject to taxation. However, PayDevs intends to comply with all applicable tax information and withholding laws that PayDevs reasonably believes apply to such payments. If taxes are required to be withheld on amounts to be paid to you by PayDevs or on amounts subject to tax withholding under applicable law, PayDevs will deduct such taxes from the amount due and remit them to the appropriate taxing authority and, if required, provide you with an official receipt for the taxes withheld as required by applicable law. PayDevs will use reasonable efforts to minimize such taxes to the extent permitted by applicable law, and each party will reasonably cooperate with the other to obtain the lowest tax rates or the elimination of such taxes under applicable income tax laws or treaties. This includes providing PayDevs with information required by applicable laws, such as IRS Forms W-8, W-9 or other information to demonstrate exemption from tax withholding. You are also responsible for complying with the terms and conditions of third-party payment providers regarding tax withholding and reporting, if applicable. In addition, PayDevs reserves the right to suspend payments to your Account until you provide PayDevs with appropriate documentation or information required by applicable law to enable PayDevs to determine any applicable tax withholding or reporting requirements applicable to payments under these Additional Terms or the Agreement.

Please note that PayDevs takes a cut from the payments before pooling it and paying it out to the maintainers. This money is used to pay for operating servers, employee salaries, legal fees, as well as adding and enhancing of existing Registries and package managers. Furthermore, fees from payments processor and taxes apply. The maintainers do not have to pay otherwise for contributing in the payouts from the monthly money-pool.

7. Final Provisions

Place of performance and exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes between the parties shall be Karlsruhe, Germany. Karlsruhe, Germany shall also be the exclusive place of jurisdiction if the customer does not have a general place of jurisdiction in Germany, if the customer, once it has concluded the contract, moves its domicile out of Germany or whose domicile is unknown at the time the lawsuit is filed.

Any modifications and or amendments of offers and these Terms and Conditions must be made in writing (email is sufficient). This also applies in case of a nullification of the written form requirement.

If any provision of these Terms and Conditions or part thereof is invalid or becomes invalid at a later time, the validity of the remaining provisions shall remain unaffected. The relevant provision shall be replaced by a provision that as closely as possible reflects the economic purpose of the invalid provision. The foregoing shall apply analogously if any provision has inadvertently been omitted.

Unless expressly agreed otherwise, the legal relationship between PayDevs and the customer shall be governed by and construed in accordance with German law.
