Bild is the modern data management and collaboration platform for hardware teams.
Bild (“Bild” or “we”) provides a cloud-based product data management platform. The platform enables teams to collaborate on designs and securely store designs, documentation, and data in the cloud.
These Bild Terms of Service ("Terms") are a legally binding contract between you and Bild. By using, accessing, or registering for a Bild account or any website, software, platform, products, or other properties owned or operated by Bild (“Services”) you expressly accept and agree to be bound by the Terms. If you are using the Services on behalf of an organization, you are agreeing to the Terms for that organization and representing to Bild that you have the authority to bind that organization to the Terms (in which event, "you" and "your" will refer to that organization) unless that organization has a separate paid contract in effect with Bild (in which case the terms of that contract will govern your use of the Services). If you do not agree with the Terms, or if you are not legally permitted to accept the Terms, you may not use the Services.
1. Revisions to the Terms.
Bild reserves the right to revise the Terms from time to time. The most current version of the Terms will be posted at www.getbild.com (the "Site"). If we make material changes to these Terms, we will notify you by sending an email to the email address associated with your account or via an in-product notification. If you do not agree with the revised Terms, you must stop using the Services and cancel your account before the revised Terms become effective. By continuing to use or access the Services after Bild publishes or notifies you about the revised Terms, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms.
2. Updates to the Services.
Bild may (a) modify or update the Services (including by adding or removing features or functionality) at any time, or (b) suspend or stop providing all or any portion of the Services.
4. Bild Software.

You are responsible for all taxes (other than taxes on Bild’s net income) and charges related to your use of the purchased Service. You will pay the Fees in the currency Bild quoted at the time of purchase.
(b) Bild reserves the right to change its prices at any time; provided, that if Bild has offered a specific duration and Fee for your use of the Service, we agree that the Fee will remain in force for that duration.

If you don't agree to this price, you must stop using the Service and cancel your subscription at least two (2) business days prior to the end of the then-current subscription period. If you cancel, your right to access or use the Service ends at the end of your current Service period or payment period, and no refunds for previously paid Services will be issued. If you do not cancel, your subscription for the Service will automatically renew at Bild’s then-current price and term length for the next subscription period (the “Next Subscription Period”). Bild will charge your credit card on file with Bild (if any) on the first day of the Next Subscription Period.
(c) You will provide Bild with current, complete, accurate and authorized payment method information (e.g. credit card information). You authorize Bild to charge your provided payment method for the Services you have selected and for any paid feature(s) that you choose. Bild may bill: (i) in advance; (ii) at or shortly after the time of purchase; or (iii) if you have elected a subscription service, on a recurring basis.
