It is important that you read these Terms carefully because you will be legally bound by them. If you do not agree to these Terms, please do not use the Services.
1. Using the Services
1.1. Right to Use Services
Knit will provide the Services, and you may access and use the Services, in accordance with these Terms for your own personal and individual use. By accessing or using the Services, you represent that you are of legal age and have accepted these Terms.
1.2. Limitations on Use
By using the Services, you agree not to: (i) modify, prepare derivative works of, or reverse engineer, the Services; (ii) use the Services in a way that does or attempts to abuse or disrupt our networks, user accounts, or the Services; (iii) store within, upload or transmit any harassing, indecent, obscene, or unlawful material, or any type of virus, malware, or malicious code; (iv) upload or transmit any material that may infringe the intellectual property, privacy, or other rights of third parties through the Services; or (v) use the Services to commit fraud or impersonate any person or entity.
We may modify or discontinue the Services as we deem appropriate and in our discretion. Access to additional functionality or premium feature improvements may be subject to an additional cost.
1.4. Family Plan Users
If you are using any type of family plan that we offer, you may be able to create user accounts for members of the family plan. By creating any such user account, you are confirming that you have the legal right to do so and are consenting to our processing of information about the members of the family plan. You are also agreeing to be responsible for the family’s compliance with these Terms.
2. Fees and Payment
2.1. Fees; Payment Information
If you have purchased a paid version of the Services, you agree to provide Knit with accurate billing, contact, and payment information, and you agree to pay all applicable fees. All payments are final and non-refundable. We may charge any payment card on file or bill you for all amounts due for your use of the Services, including any fees or overdraft charges incurred in collecting payment, and we may take steps to update your payment card information (where permitted) to ensure that payment can be processed. Your credit card and payment information may be provided to our third-party payment processors for payment and fraud prevention, as well as export and legal compliance purposes.
2.2. Taxes and Withholding
You are responsible for all applicable sales, services, value-added, goods and services, withholding and similar taxes, tariffs, or fees imposed by any government entity or collecting agency based on the Services. In all cases, you will pay the amounts due to us in full without any right of set-off or deduction.
2.3. Non-Payment; Price Updates
We may, with notice to you, suspend or terminate the Services if you do not pay applicable fees, and you agree to reimburse us for all reasonable costs and expenses incurred in collecting any delinquent amounts. We reserve the right to update the price for access to the Services at any time after your initial subscription term, and price changes will be effective as of your next billing cycle. In accordance with applicable law, we will notify you in a timely manner of any price changes by publishing on our website, emailing, quoting, or invoicing you. Your continued use of the Service after such notification serves as your agreement to the price change.
3. Subscription and Termination
Some Services are billed on a subscription basis, in advance and on a recurring billing cycle (which is typically yearly). To help ensure uninterrupted service, the Services will, by default, automatically renew for additional periods equal to your expiring subscription term unless either party cancels the subscription at least thirty (30) days before the current subscription term expires. You may provide notice of non-renewal to our customer support team. Terminating specific Services does not affect the term of any other Services still in effect.
You may cease using the Services at any time and contact us to cancel your account, but you will continue to be charged for Services until the end of your then-current subscription term. We may suspend or terminate your account upon notice if you violate these Terms and may reinstate your access to the Services if you remedy the violation to our satisfaction. We reserve the right to terminate your account without notice where doing so is prohibited by law or has a reasonable risk of incurring liability for us.
3.3. Effect of Termination
If any Services are terminated or your subscription expires, your paid account may be converted to a “free” or “basic” version of the Service, if available, at our discretion. Where your account is not converted to a free version, you must immediately discontinue all use of the terminated Services. To the extent permitted by applicable law, neither party will be liable for any damages resulting from the valid termination of the Services, and termination will not affect any claim arising prior to the effective termination date.
4. Your Content and Accounts

4.2. Your Privacy and Security

We are not liable for any loss that you may incur if you fail to properly secure your master password or account. We may suspend the Services or terminate your account if you or your users are using the Services in a manner that is likely to cause harm to us or if we have reasonable grounds for suspecting any illegal, fraudulent, or abusive activity on your part. NOTE THAT, WHERE APPLICABLE, WE DO NOT STORE OR HAVE ACCESS TO YOUR MASTER PASSWORD, AND IF YOUR MASTER PASSWORD IS LOST, STOLEN, OR FORGOTTEN, WE CANNOT RETRIEVE YOUR MASTER PASSWORD AND YOU MAY BE UNABLE TO UNLOCK OR ACCESS YOUR ACCOUNT.
5. Compliance with Laws
You agree to comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations including, but not limited to export, privacy, and data protection laws and regulations. You acknowledge that the Services are subject to export control and trade sanctions laws in the United States and other countries. You may not access, use, export, or disclose any portion of the Services in violation of applicable export control and sanctions laws. Specifically, you represent and warrant that you: (a) are not a citizen of, or located within, a country or territory that is subject to U.S. trade sanctions or other significant trade restrictions (including without limitation Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Syria, and the Crimea, Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine) and that you will not access or use the Services, or export, re-export, divert, or transfer the Services, in or to such countries or territories; and (b) are not identified on any U.S. government lists which would prohibit you from receiving the Services. Where required by law, we will cooperate with government authorities with respect to the Services. We may immediately terminate your subscription if we have reason to believe that you have failed to comply with applicable law.

Unless otherwise specified, remedies are cumulative. These Terms may be agreed to online or executed by electronic signature and in one or more counterparts. We will not be responsible for any delay or failure to perform under these Terms due to any events or circumstances that are outside of our control or that we could not have reasonably anticipated (e.g., natural disasters; terrorist activities, activities of third-party service providers, labor disputes; acts of government, etc.).
