PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY.
By using and/or registering to use the Trint Platform, you must read, agree with and accept all of the terms and conditions contained in this agreement. This agreement is provided to you and concluded in English. You agree that any use by you of the Trint Platform shall constitute your acceptance of the agreement. We recommend that you store or print-off a copy of the agreement (including all policies) for your records.
If you do not agree to the terms of this agreement, please refrain from using the Trint Platform.
1.1 This agreement refers to the following additional terms, which also apply to your use of the Trint Platform:
2.1 We have developed the Trint Platform, using AI technology to provide an accurate and superior automated transcription service. Trint uses the world’s best automated speech-to-text algorithms to generate accurate transcripts and provide the following services:
(a) automated transcription of audio/video files uploaded to the Trint Platform;
(b) the creation of a document format that aligns words with the transcribed audio/video files (a “Trint”);
(c) an editor that allows users to search, verify and correct the content of their Trints (the “Trint Editor”);
(d) the Trint API Developer Hub (https://dev.trint.com/); and
(e) a variety of methods for exporting and sharing the contents of Trints.
(together the “Trint Services”).
2.2 You will receive access and direct links to third party services for your benefit and ease of service via the Trint Platform, including but not limited to: Zapier and Zoom which are subject to their own terms and conditions:
You acknowledge and agree that when you click on a link to a third party website on the Trint Platform you are leaving the Trint Platform and entering a third party website which is subject to its own terms and conditions. Please read all third party terms and conditions carefully before using such sites. Trint accepts no responsibility or liability in respect of any events that occur whilst you are using third party platforms and services.
2.3 In consideration of you agreeing to abide by the terms of this agreement, we hereby grant to you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, licence to use the Trint Platform and the Trint Services on the terms of this agreement. To access and use the Trint Services you must sign up with your name, email address and password to create an account (“Account”). We discourage generic account names and we actively monitor concurrent Account usage. You may log into your Account on multiple devices but you shall not be able to access and use the Trint Services via the same Account from multiple devices at the same time. Dependent on the tier of your Account (as detailed at clause 3.3) you may be authorized to have more than one user (“Seat”) per your Account. The number of Seats per Account shall be determined by your tier and if there are multiple Seats allowed via your Account, each Seat shall need to be a named individual. The original Account holder shall be the lead Seat and shall be able to add a specified number of other Seats (in accordance with the selected tier). Seats may be transferred to new users at any time but shall always be for named individuals and not a generic Seat used by multiple individuals concurrently. Sharing of log-in details with any other user is strictly prohibited in accordance with clause 2.6.
2.4 Access to the Trint Platform is permitted on a temporary basis and we reserve the right to withdraw or amend the services or functionality that we provide on the Trint Platform without notice. We will not be liable if for any reason the Trint Platform is unavailable at any time or for any period.
2.5 From time to time, we may restrict access to some parts of the Trint Platform, or the entire Trint Platform, to users who have registered with us. We will use reasonable endeavours to fix issues and bugs in the Trint Platform as quickly as we can.
2.6 If you choose, or you are provided with, a user identification code, password or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, you must treat such information as confidential, and you must not disclose it to any third party. We have the right to disable any user identification code or password, whether chosen by you or allocated by us, at any time, if in our opinion you have failed to comply with any of the provisions of this agreement.
2.7 You must not misuse the Trint Platform by knowingly introducing viruses, Trojans, worms, logic bombs or other material which is malicious or technologically harmful. You must not attempt to gain unauthorised access to the Trint Platform, the server on which the Trint Platform is stored or any server, computer or database connected to the Trint Platform. You must not attack the Trint Platform via a denial-of-service attack or a distributed denial-of service attack.
2.8 If you breach clause 2.7, you will be committing a criminal offence under the Computer Misuse Act 1990. We will report any such breach to the relevant law enforcement authorities and we will cooperate with those authorities by disclosing your identity to them. In the event of such a breach, we reserve the right to immediately cease your right to use the Trint Platform.
3.1 Free trial for new users. If you are a new user, signing up to the Trint Platform to use the Trint Services for the first time, once you have created an Account you shall have the option to sign up for a free 7-day trial. A free trial shall consist of free transcription services for up to three files of any supported duration which may be used during the next seven (7) days after you have signed up (“Free Trial”). In order to enjoy the Free Trial you shall need to enter your payment details but you shall not be charged until after the Free Trial has ended.
3.2 Unless you choose to opt out prior to the Free Trial period ending (i.e. before day eight (8)), after your Free Trial ends you shall be automatically subscribed to the Trint Services as further detailed below.
3.3 Subscriptions. If you are migrating from the Free Trial to a subscription plan, you shall be automatically signed up for a monthly subscription where payment is taken upfront at the beginning of each month (the “Monthly Subscription”), or you may choose to upgrade (as detailed below) to an annual subscription with the benefit of a discount and payment upfront annually (the “Annual Subscription”).You can also opt for an Annual Subscription during the Free Trial period (in which case it shall commence automatically after the Free Trial has ended) or at any time thereafter (in which case your upgrade shall commence as soon as you have selected it within in your Account) For the avoidance of doubt there shall be no pro rata fee deductions for upgrades during the middle of the month.
Any users on Pay As You Go, Basic or Supercharged payment plans may elect to sign up for a Monthly Subscription or an Annual Subscription plans. For the avoidance of doubt, if you are migrating from Pay As You Go, Basic or Supercharged payment plans to a subscription plan you are not a new user and therefore will not be eligible for a free trial.
3.4 Fair use. You will receive unlimited, day-to-day fair use (“Fair Use”) (Fair Use is subject to our discretion) of the Trint Services on specific Monthly Subscription and the Annual Subscription (Advanced, Pro, Pro Teams plans). We reserve the right to monitor usage, and if we determine over-use of the Trint Services, going beyond Fair Use, that is equivalent to the High Volume or Archive Use (as defined below) thresholds we shall inform you of your over-use and give you the option to purchase the High Volume or Archive Use add-on(s).
Fair use does not accrue, and resets every billing period (Monthly or Yearly).
|Monthly Subscription||Please refer to the Pricing Page|
|Annual Subscription (EU Countries only)||Please refer to the Pricing Page|
|High Volume: means any transcription above the Fair Use limit [during any month].||Contact Us|
|Archive Use: means when you know in advance how many files and/or the number of hours that require transcription in advance. |
This feature is for projects with a known volume that is higher than Fair Use.
3.5 In addition to choosing the Monthly or Annual Subscription plan you can also choose your tier details of which may be updated from time to time and can be found on the pricing page (“Pricing Page”).

(b) agree and undertake to pay to us (without any deduction) the relevant Fee in advance in full (in GBP, EUR, USD or the equivalent in your local currency based on the conversion rate at the time of payment) and authorise us to collect the full fee from you each month until you cancel your subscription; and
(c) acknowledge that, subject to clause 5, that the relevant Fees are non-refundable.

You may also downgrade from an Annual Subscription to a Monthly Subscription via your Account at the end of the year of your Annual Subscription. The downgrade will take effect from the end of the annual period. Payment will then be taken monthly in accordance with the Monthly Subscription payment plan.
4.3 You may also upgrade from a lower tier plan to a higher tier plan i.e. from Starter to Pro or Pro Team. If you upgrade your tier via your Account you will be immediately charged the pro-rated difference (for the month or the year as applicable) between the two tiers and will immediately receive the extra benefits of your new tier.
4.4 You may also downgrade your tier by selecting to do so via your Account. If you choose to do so, the downgrade will come into effect at the end of the month or the end of the year as applicable in time for your next Fee payment. You shall lose the benefits of the tier from which you have downgraded at this time.
4.5 If you are signed up for a Monthly Subscription, you may pause your Account at any time (“Pause Plan”).
