Contractual Relationship

This User Agreement is entered into by and between Lantech.com, LLC (“Lantech”, “we”, “us”, or “our”) and you. The terms of this User Agreement and any additional terms incorporated by reference herein (collectively, the “Terms”) govern your use of our LINC™ products and services (collectively, our “Services”). By using our Services (including but not limited to LINC™), you are agreeing to these Terms. You are also agreeing that you have authority to agree to these Terms, whether personally, on behalf of your organization, or on behalf of an entity you have included in your user account registration.

You have agreed to comply with these Terms as a condition using our Services. If you do not want to agree to these Terms, you must not access or use the Services.  We may amend these Terms from time to time in our sole discretion. All such revisions to the Terms will be effective when posted on this website or otherwise made available to you. The revised Terms supersede any previous versions and apply to all access to and use of the Services thereafter. Your continued use of the Services following the posting of revised Terms means that you accept and agree to the changes. You are expected to check this website each time you access the Services so you are aware of any changes, as they are binding on you. 

These Terms also expressly supersede any prior agreements or arrangements we may have with you. You may stop using our Services at any time, and we may terminate these Terms or your use of any Services, or generally cease offering or deny access to any portion of the Services, at any time and for any reason in our sole discretion.

What LINC Offers

LINC™ was designed to help you access real-time information about your machine from anywhere. LINC™ can help to improve performance, reduce downtime, and prevent problems from escalating. We are continually evolving our Services, and as of the date above, they include Stretch Wrapping and Case Erecting LINC modules made available by Lantech. In these Terms, we refer to these as a “Product” or all of them collectively as “Products”. Our Services include our web portal (the “LINC Portal”), all other related equipment, maintenance, personnel, our websites (including this one and our public site), social media assets, and any other information, technology and services provided or otherwise made available to you in our discretion. 

Your LINC User Account

Account Set Up. In order to use most aspects of the Services, you must register for and maintain an active personal user account (“Account”), which requires that a subscription has been purchased either at the machine sale or after machine sale as a retrofit. Account setup is possible after machines are installed properly and brought online with a cellular or ethernet connection.

The Account information you provide to us must be true, accurate, complete and updated as necessary to remain accurate and complete. If applicable, create a username and a strong password. You must treat such Account information as confidential and you must not disclose it to any other person or entity. Your Account is personal to you and not intended for anyone else, and you are responsible for all activity that occurs under it. Notify us immediately if you suspect unauthorized use of your Account. We have the right to disclose information about you or your various account details (like billing, account, content or use records and related information) in connection with any legal process, or to comply with relevant laws (which may include mandatory data sharing with governments).  We may also disclose your information in order to establish or exercise our rights, to defend against a legal claim, to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding possible illegal activities, suspected fraud, safety of person or property, or a violation of our policies.

If we suspect that any information you provide is inaccurate, incomplete or fraudulent, we may suspend or terminate your Account until the issue is resolved. During that time, you will lose access to some or all of our Services, either temporarily or permanently.

Once your Account is properly set up, you can use the LINC™ Portal to view your machine data.

LINC™ Device Kits. 

LINC™ hardware is a part of your Lantech machine. You shall not tamper with, modify, or detach the LINC™ device unless for maintenance or warranty replacement approved by Lantech. It is a violation of these Terms to resell LINC™ device kit unless in the event of transferring ownership of the entire machine. In the event of a resale of the entire machine, the LINC™ equipped machine is eligible for new subscription activation so long as in working condition. LINC™ device kits are owned by the machine owner and purchased at machine point of sale or as a retrofit option. In the event of a subscription cancellation (we hate to see you go!), owners of the machine may keep the LINC™ device kit installed.

Rules for using Certain Products and Services

Certain Products or Services may come with additional terms or requirements, which we will make available to you with the relevant Products and/or Services and they will become part of these Terms and apply to your use of those Products and/or Services. You agree to abide by the Terms applicable to each Lantech Product you use. You can find additional terms at lantech.com/terms-and-conditions. 

Service Levels 

In the event there are any Service Levels applicable to Products or Services (whereby we require an active LINC™ subscription to monitor performance) the LINC™ device will act as the source of performance data for purposes of determining compliance with the Service Levels. You must maintain an active subscription for the Service Levels to apply. If you subscription is cancelled, terminated, or otherwise lapses, the Service Level terms are terminated and become null and void. Any effort to mislead or tamper with performance data against the Service Level is prohibited.  

Financial Terms

Pricing & Payment

Fees for the Services are set forth by your Lantech sales quote and/or available on the website.

Fees and charges will be applied based on the payment method selected in your account. We will automatically charge and withhold the applicable taxes as required by law, unless you provide notice of cancellation prior to the scheduled date of charging.

If your payment method expires and you do not update your information or you cancel your account, you authorize us to continue billing, and you will remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. We reserve the right to retry billing all payment method(s) on file after any failed billing attempt. You will remain liable for all such amounts and all costs incurred in connection with the collection of these amounts, including, without limitation, bank overdraft fees, collection agency fees, reasonable attorneys’ fees, and arbitration or court costs.

The fees for the Services are non-refundable. If you disagree with any charges we have made to your account, you must let us know within 10 business days from the end of the month in which the disputed charge took place. We will investigate the disputed charge and determine if any disputed charges were made in error and we will refund any such charges made in error to your account.

General

These Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Kentucky, without regard to its conflicts of law provisions. Any legal suit, action, or proceeding arising out of, or related to, these Terms or the Services shall be instituted exclusively in the federal courts of the United States or the courts of the State of Kentucky, in each case located in the state and federal courts located in the Western District of Kentucky, although we retain the right to bring any suit, action, or proceeding against you for breach of these Terms in your country of residence or any other relevant country. You waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over you by such courts and to venue in such courts. You may not assign these Terms without our prior written approval.

If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, that provision shall be struck and the remaining provisions shall be enforced to the fullest extent under the law. Our failure to enforce any right or provision in these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless we acknowledge and agree to it in writing, and it is not a waiver of our right to do so later. Note that when we say “include” or “including” throughout these Terms, we really mean “including, but not limited to” but do this for ease of reading. Provisions that by their nature are intended to survive the termination of these Terms or your use of the Services will survive.
