Terms of Service and Website Use
Information about us
These are the terms of service (“Terms”) for Charlotte Corrigan Limited (“us/we/our”) which apply to all use of our Paperbell software subscription service (“Service”).
We reserve the right to amend these Terms from time to time and will post a message on our homepage along with the new version of the Terms if that happens. Your continued use of the Service will be deemed to be acceptance of any new Terms.
Who we are
We are Charlotte Corrigan Limited. We are a company incorporated in England with company number 11274474. Our registered office is at 95 Ditchling Road, Brighton, United Kingdom, BN1 4ST.
We trade under the name Paperbell
Where you have signed up to use our Service on a free trial basis, these Terms will apply to you during your trial period, with the exception of the ‘Payment’ section below.
Our contract with you
If you register to create an account (“Account”) with us online, we will send you an email to confirm whether your application is accepted. Our contract with you (“Contract”) is formed when we send this email and is comprised of:
- your online application detailing your chosen subscription package and where these Terms are accepted (“Registration Page”);
- our email confirmation; and these Terms
Please note we reserve the right at our discretion to reject applications to use our Service.
The Contract will run on either a monthly or annual subscription basis (as set out in the Registration Page or Registration Confirmation) unless you have registered on a free trial basis.
Renewal of Accounts
For month-to-month Contracts, the initial subscription term is one month. Your Contract will automatically renew for successive periods of one month after the initial subscription term, unless you cancel the Contract before the end of this period (or before the end of the current renewal period).
For annual Contracts, the initial subscription term is one year. Your Contract will automatically renew for successive periods of one year, unless you cancel the Contract before the end of the initial subscription term (or before the end of the current renewal period).
Changing your Subscription Package
You can upgrade the subscription package of your Contract at any time through your user account options. This includes the ability to change from a monthly to an annual subscription package. Any change in price will automatically be applied to your Account.
You can also downgrade the subscription package of your Contract through your user account options, however the change to your subscription package will only take effect at the end of the initial subscription term (or current renewal period). Any change in price will automatically be applied to your Account.
You can choose to stop the Service at any time by cancelling your Contract through your user account options, in which case your Contract will expire at the end of the initial subscription term or current renewal period (as applicable). No further subscription fees will be charged but we shall not be obliged to refund any fees paid.
We shall be entitled to terminate the Contract at any time if you are in material breach of the Contract (e.g. fail to pay subscription fees) and either you fail to remedy the breach within the timescale we request or the breach is not capable of being remedied. We shall also be entitled to terminate the Contract if you become insolvent. Where we terminate the Contract due to your breach or insolvency we shall not be obliged to refund any subscription fees you may have paid us.
These rights of termination will also apply to you against us. Where you terminate the Contract due to our insolvency or our material breach of the Contract (where we have not remedied the breach within 30 days of your written notification to do so, or the breach is not capable of being remedied), then you shall be entitled to a refund of any fees paid for services which have not been performed.

You must only allow the permitted number of Authorised Users to access your Account to use the Services. If you discover any unauthorised use of the Service you must promptly let us know.
You must keep your password and account details secure and ensure that only you and Authorised Users access your Account.

You are responsible for complying with the laws of the country from where you use the Service and to ensure you have all necessary permission and consents in place in relation to your use of the Service.
Hateful Imagery and Content
You may not use hateful images or symbols in your profile. You also may not use your profile to engage in abusive behavior, such as targeted harassment or expressing hate towards a person, group, or protected category.
You may not promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, caste, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease. We also do not allow accounts whose primary purpose is inciting harm towards others on the basis of these categories.
A subscription fee is due in advance for use of the Service (i.e. monthly in advance for month to month Contracts, and annually in advance for annual Contracts). The subscription fee will be detailed in your Registration Page or Registration Confirmation (as applicable). It will be clear before you purchase any Service whether VAT or other applicable taxes are included in the price or still to be added.
You may request a refund within the first 30 days of paid service if you are unsatisfied for any reason by emailing email@example.com. We will refund your first payment in full within 30 days. After the first 30 days all payments are non-refundable.

Payment by credit card (or similar card) will be processed via Stripe. Where your card payment is not successful, or where you have failed to make payment of our invoice on the due date for payment, we will contact you and suspend access to your Account until payment has been made.
We shall be entitled to increase our subscription fees upon 14 days’ prior notice to you.
Please note that you are not entitled to a refund of subscription fees paid to us unless you terminate the Contract because of our material breach or insolvency in accordance with the ‘Our contract with you’ section above. (With the exception of the first 30 days of your paid service.)
Ownership of Data
In the event of any loss or damage to Your Data, your sole and exclusive remedy shall be for us to use reasonable commercial endeavours to restore the lost or damaged data from the latest back-up under our archiving procedure. We shall not be responsible for any loss, damage or disclosure of Your Data caused by any third party.
Where the Contract has expired or the Contract has been terminated by either of us, you may request a copy of Your Data from us within 12 months of the expiry or termination date (as applicable). After that period we will delete your Account, including invoice details, and all Your Data. It is your responsibility to either export and/or copy Your Data prior to the expiry or termination date, or request a copy from us within 12 months days of such date.
If Your Data includes any personal data (as that term is defined in the Data Protection Legislation), then you acknowledge that we shall be deemed the data processor and you are the data controller in respect of any such personal data (where “controller”, “processor” and “personal data” have the meanings as defined in Data Protection Legislation).
We shall comply with our, and you shall comply with your, respective obligations under the Data Protection Legislation (where “Data Protection Legislation” means (i) unless and until it is no longer directly applicable in the UK, the General Data Protection Regulation ((EU) 2016/679) and any national implementing laws, regulations and secondary legislation, as amended or updated from time to time, in the UK; and (ii) any successor legislation to the GDPR or the Data Protection Act 1998 from time to time in force in the UK. This section is in addition to, and does not relieve, remove or replace, your or our obligations under Data Protection Legislation.
The scope, nature and purpose of processing by us is the provision of our Service. The type of personal data will be set out in any data you upload using the Service and the categories of data subjects are any individuals that may be referred to within such data. The duration of the processing is that of our retention period, which is a maximum of 12 months from expiry or termination of your Account.
You must ensure that you have all necessary consents and notices in place to enable lawful transfer of any personal data to us for the duration and purposes of this Contract.
We shall, in relation to any personal data processed in connection with the performance by us of our obligations under this Contract:
- process the personal data only on your written instructions (unless otherwise required by applicable law);
- maintain records of any processing of personal data that we carry out on your behalf;
- ensure that we have in place appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect against unauthorised or unlawful processing of personal data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, personal data;
- ensure that all personnel who have access to and/or process personal data are obliged to keep the personal data confidential;
- assist you, at your cost, in responding to any request from a data subject and in ensuring compliance with your obligations under the Data Protection Legislation with respect to security, breach notifications, impact assessments and consultations with supervisory authorities or regulators;
- notify you without undue delay on becoming aware of a personal data breach; and
- at your written direction, delete or return personal data and copies thereof to you on termination of this Contract (unless required by applicable law(s) to store the personal data).
You consent to us appointing third-party processors of personal data who assist with web-hosting under this Contract and, in particular, the appointment of Heroku and Microsoft Azure. You acknowledge that our appointment of Heroku and Microsoft Azure may involve transfer of personal data out of the EEA and accordingly you consent to such transfer.
We confirm that we have entered, or will enter (as the case may be), a written agreement with any such third-party processor incorporating terms which are substantially similar to those set out in this section.
You warrant that:
- you are not aware of any circumstances likely to give rise to breach of the Data Protection Legislation (including any personal data breach);
- you have a lawful basis under the Data Protection Legislation to transfer the personal data to us for processing under this Contract, and such use will comply with all Data Protection Legislation;
- you will promptly notify us of any action we must take to assist you with ensuring compliance with your obligations under Data Protection Legislation, including with request to security, breach notifications, impact assessments and consultations with supervisory authorities or regulators; and
- the personal data is necessary, adequate, relevant, accurate and up-to-date and you will notify us promptly of any changes to the personal data.

General legal provisions
We shall have no liability to you under the Contract if we are prevented from or delayed in performing our obligations under the Contract or from carrying on our business by acts or events beyond our reasonable control.
If we choose to waive any particular right we have under the Contract on any particular occasion this does not prevent us from exercising that right on another occasion.
