Mantano SAS (“Mantano”, “we,” or “us”) provides to Bookari («Software») users the My Bookari ebook synchronization and back-up service that allows you (“you”) to synchronize your ebooks, Mantano Reader collections, bookmarks, highlights and notes across your computers and Android and iOS devices and to store and access them through the Internet («Service»). These My Bookari Service Terms of Use («Terms») stipulate the terms and conditions of your use of the Service. By creating a Bookari account, by taking a subscription or by using the Service, you agree to these Terms.

The files that you synchronize and back-up with Bookari are stored and secured by Amazon S3. By creating a Bookari account, by taking a subscription or by using the Service, you also agree to Amazon Web Services’ Terms of Service.

Account Setup

To use the Service, you need to create a Bookari account. You may establish either a free account (“Free Account”), or a paid account (“Essentials Plan”, “Optimum Plan” or “Premium Plan”).  These Terms govern your use of the Service and your relationship with us.

When you select an account, we prompt you for registration information, such as your name, email address, account password, phone number and mailing address.  All of this registration information is protected by our Privacy Policy, the most current terms of which are incorporated by reference.

File Sync, Storage and Confidentiality

After setting up your account, installing our Software and activating your account from within the Software, you can select the Files you want to sync and/or store. You can change the Files you want to sync or store whenever you want. In order to make the Service available to you, we need your permission to sync and store your Files. Accordingly, you hereby grant to Mantano a license to use, copy, transmit, distribute, store and cache Files that you choose to sync and/or store, solely to provide the Service to you.

We respect the privacy and confidentiality of your Files, so we agree never to disclose your Files to anyone unless you instruct us to do so or a court orders us to disclose them, as provided in our Privacy Policy.

Free Accounts

Free Accounts don’t have all the features of Paid Accounts and are subject to limitations. The features included in Free Accounts are described in the “Free Plan” description accessible:

  • on the Pricing  page visible on the website my.bookari.com if you have not logged into it
  • in the “My subscription” section if you have logged into it and have subscribed to a Free Plan

Mantano reserves the right to change the subscription fee and to charge for use of its services that are currently available free of charge. The duration of an inactive  Free Account is  6 month. Beyond this delay all the data stored in this account are deleted.

Subscription Period and Subscription Fees

Subscription Period. The subscription period for Paid Accounts can be monthly, yearly, or another duration described in the product sheet. The next due date is written in the details of your subscription, accessible from the “My subscription” section. For Free Accounts, the Subscription Period is for the duration of your Free Account.

Subscription Fees. Paid Accounts are subject to fees based upon the account type you’ve selected (“Subscription Fees”). For renewals, Mantano will automatically charge your payment account the amount of the then-current fee for your type of account, plus applicable taxes. All payments are non-refundable. To the extent that payment mechanisms are provided through third parties, you agree that Mantano shall have no liability to you arising out of the acts or omissions of such third parties. BY CREATING A PAID ACCOUNT YOU CONSENT TO ALLOW MANTANO TO CHARGE YOUR SELECTED PAYMENT ACCOUNT, EITHER DIRECTLY OR THROUGH ITS PAYMENT PROCESSORS, FOR THE AMOUNTS DUE FOR YOUR INITIAL SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD AND FOR ADDITIONAL SUBSCRIPTION PERIODS UNTIL YOUR ACCOUNT IS CANCELED OR TERMINATED.

Renewals and Terminations

Accounts subject to Subscription Fees shall automatically renew for the same Subscription Period unless you unsubscribe by the “Next Term” date. You can unsubscribe at any time by clicking the «Unsubscribe» button on your «My Subscription» page on the web interface of the site. The termination will be effective at the end of your subscription period. Please note that after you unsubscribe, you will still be able to use or access the Service until the end of your Subscription Period and you will not be entitled to a refund of any fees that you’ve paid. In case of a termination of your Paid Account, your account becomes a Free Account at its expiration date. As such, some of your data (notes, collections, tags, books beyond the quota that is allowed for Free Accounts) get unsynchronized, what means in particular that they disappear from the cloud whereas they remain on the devices which were connected to the Account. The selection criterion for the books which are deleted from the cloud because they exceed the allowed quota for Free Accounts is at the discretion of Mantano.

Upgrades

You can upgrade your Paid Account from an Essentials Plan to an Optimum Plan or to a Premium Plan at any time, and from an Optimum Plan to a Premium Plan too. You can upgrade from the Free Account to a Paid Account. And lastly you can upgrade from a monthly Subscription to a yearly Subscription. When you upgrade from a Paid Account to another type of Paid Account, we will apply the unused portion of your old Subscription Fee to the cost of the first monthly or yearly payment of your upgraded Account type, in the case of an upgraded Account corresponding to a monthly or yearly Subscription respectively. If the amount resulting from the calculation is lower than 0.5€, the amount to be paid will be 0.5€.

Downgrades

You can downgrade your Paid Account from a Premium Plan to an Optimum Plan or to an Essential Plan, and from an Optimum Plan to an Essential Plan too. You can also downgrade from a yearly Subscription to a monthly Subscription. In the case of a downgrade of your Paid Account to a lower Paid Account, the change takes effect at the Next Term date. As such, at the start date of your new Subscription, some of your data (notes and books beyond the quota that is allowed for the new Subscription Plan) get unsynchronized, what means in particular that they disappear from the cloud whereas they remain on the devices which were connected to the Account. The selection criterion for the notes and books which are deleted from the cloud because they exceed the allowed quota for the new Subscription Plan is at the discretion of Mantano.

Reactivation

You can reactivate a subscription that you previously terminated. When you reactivate a subscription before the end of the Subscription Period, it will be automatically renewed at the next term and you will be charged the corresponding amount.

Requirements to Use the Service

To use the Service, you’ll need to have a computer with Internet access and, to use mobile device features, an Android and/or iOS mobile device and wireless plan with necessary wireless data features.

These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive agreement between you and Mantano with respect to the Services, and supersede and replace any other agreements, terms and conditions applicable to the Services. These Terms create no third party beneficiary rights. Mantano’s failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision is found unenforceable the remaining provisions of the Agreement will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights in these Terms, and any such attempt is void, but Mantano may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services. Mantano and you are not legal partners or agents; instead, our relationship is that of independent contractors.
