Terms of Service
DottedSign was developed by Kdan Mobile Software Ltd. Users shall read the following Terms of Service carefully before using DottedSign.
1. Membership and Registration
By registering for membership with Kdan Mobile Software Ltd. (“Kdan”) or using Kdan products and Kdan services and features (collectively “Kdan Services”), you (“User”) are agreeing that these Terms of Service will apply and that you are bound by them (“Agreement”).
Membership registration is free of charge. User may apply for new accounts via valid emails or through social media accounts including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google, WeChat, QQ, Apple, and Microsoft, or through other platforms or methods approved by Kdan at the time of application for membership registration. In the event that the email or social media accounts used by User for membership registration is/are found to be invalid, User agrees that Kdan shall have the right at its sole discretion to suspend such User’s Kdan account and/or delete or remove any and all files stored under such account without any liability. If User encounters subscription or payment refund problems that result from using invalid email or social media accounts, further processing will take place only if User has resubmitted and verified a valid email or social media account with confirmation that such resubmitted account belongs to the User who has submitted the complaint. User is deemed to have agreed to receive any emails or newsletters that will be sent by Kdan upon making an application for Kdan membership registration. User will be charged only for and when subscribing to and purchasing Kdan Services.
User must meet the age restrictions of the country/region in which he or she is located in order to use Kdan Services. If User in his or her country/region is a minor or a person of no capacity or limited capacity to perform juridical acts, User must obtain permission from his or her parent or legal guardian in order to use Kdan Services and accept this Agreement. If User is a person of no capacity to perform juridical acts, User’s legal guardian must apply for membership registration or pay for purchases on behalf of User in order to use Kdan Services and accept this Agreement.
User must access or download Kdan Services through legal means authorized by Kdan. Certain Kdan products can be used without membership registration while other Kdan Services require membership registration before using the services included in the product.
If a Kdan product purchased by User is packaged with a cloud storage service, User will enjoy free cloud storage space (hereinafter referred to as “Cloud Storage Space,” but which differs from the “KDAN CLOUD” service). Certain Kdan products, however, do not include the Cloud Storage Space.
If User wishes to use the KDAN CLOUD service, User must register as a Kdan member and log in to the account before using the service. User will be offered extra KDAN CLOUD space for free with a certain amount of storage capacity after completing the membership registration process (capacity of the free storage space is subject to relevant Kdan announcements or terms of service).
The KDAN CLOUD membership account is the same as the account for other Kdan Services. Any of the Kdan Services that supports KDAN CLOUD is compatible with and can be linked to KDAN CLOUD. However, not all products or services offered by Kdan are compatible with or can be linked to each other. Kdan is committed to continually providing products and services to User to optimize the user experience.
4. Subscription and Trial
Kdan provides the following subscription models for a specified period to be determined by Kdan for accessing and using Kdan Services.
(1) Subscription (without free trial)
User can subscribe to Kdan Services through Kdan’s Apps, website or the Kdan Creative Store website.
User's subscription to Kdan Services will be automatically renewed until User cancels the subscription. Subscription and renewal payments will be debited from User’s credit card or other payment method for the billing cycle selected by User. If User wishes to cancel the paid subscription, User shall follow the instructions in section 5.

(1) Subscription through an in-app purchase (for example, through the App Store, Google Play Store or Microsoft Store):
Upon the expiration of the Free Trial period, if User does not have an associated payment method tied to his or her account when subscribing to the Free Trial version, User’s account will be downgraded to the free version and User can only continue to use the functions within the free version. If User has an associated payment method tied to his or her account, User’s subscription will be renewed upon expiration. If User does not want to continue the subscription, User must manually cancel the subscription before the new subscription period starts; otherwise, Kdan will continue to charge the associated payment method tied to User’s account for the subscription.
If User wishes to cancel the paid subscription after the Free Trial period expires, User should follow the relevant instructions set forth in section 5.
(2) Subscription by means other than an in-app purchase (for example, through the Kdan Creative Store at https://creativestore.kdanmobile.com

The original purchaser (Admin) may add new users at any time. The fees shall be calculated as follows: the fees for new users shall be calculated in proportion to the number of days until the current term expires; the recurring subscription fees shall be calculated on the basis of the total number of users.
The original account purchaser can query the number of users subscribing to the purchase through the Admin Console. The subscription, unsubscribing, and refund mechanism of this subscription model is the same as that of general subscription model (including Subscription (without free trial) and Free Trial). If the purchase is made through offline means (for example, through a sales representative, distributor or means other than in-app or online purchases), the payment terms shall be as per the contract at the time.
5. Subscription Cancellation
If User subscribes to Kdan Services via an in-app purchase, he or she shall follow the procedures set forth in the platform where User originally subscribed to the Services to view subscription history or cancel automatic renewal.

However, when User receives any refund from Kdan, the Kdan Services provided to User will be terminated automatically and simultaneously.

Under the terms of this Agreement, Kdan does not represent or warrant that any content User may store or access through Kdan Services or KDAN CLOUD will not be accidentally corrupted, damaged, lost or removed, and in no event shall Kdan be liable for any such corruption, damage, loss or removal of User’s files.

Upon the expiration of the First Grace Period, the files will continue to remain in storage for another 30 calendar days (“Second Grace Period”) for User’s subscription renewal and retrieval of files within such thirty-day period. During the Second Grace Period, User will not be able to upload, download or edit the files maintained on KDAN CLOUD, or use any service until the subscription is renewed. Upon the expiration of the Second Grace Period, if no renewal of subscription is done, Kdan may delete or remove any and all files from KDAN CLOUD at its sole discretion.

However, if the file uploaded or stored by User exceeds the limit of said free storage space, or User ceases to use the storage space for a long period of time and fails to come back after being notified by Kdan in a reasonable manner, Kdan may delete or remove any and all files from KDAN CLOUD at its sole discretion.
