Airbrake Terms of Service

The Airbrake Terms of Service are between Airbrake Technologies, Inc. ("we" or "Airbrake") and the customer who orders the Airbrake services ("you" or "Customer"). By using the website  or any services described on the website (collectively, "Service"), you are agreeing to be bound by the following terms and conditions ("Terms of Service").

Violation of any of the terms below will result in the termination of your Account.  Airbrake prohibits certain conduct on the Service as described below. You understand and agree that Airbrake cannot be responsible for conduct or activity on the Service or for "Content" transmitted, posted, or stored  using the Service. You agree to use the Service at your own risk. For the purposes of this agreement "Content" means information, data files, written text, computer software, music, audio files or other sounds, photographs, videos or other images to which you may have access as part of, or through your use of, the Service.

Account Terms

  • You must be 13 years or older to use this Service.
  • You must be a human. Accounts registered by "bots" or other automated methods are not permitted.
  • You must provide your legal full name, a valid email address, and any other information requested in order to complete the signup process.
  • Your login may only be used by one person – a single login shared by multiple people is not permitted. You may create separate logins for as many people as your plan allows.
  • You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and password. Airbrake cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage from your failure to comply with this security obligation.
  • You are responsible for all Content posted and activity that occurs under your account (even when Content is posted by others who have accounts under your account).
  • One person or legal entity may not maintain more than one free account.
  • You may not use the Service for any illegal or unauthorized purpose. You must not, in the use of the Service, violate any laws in your jurisdiction (including but not limited to copyright laws).

API Terms

Customers may access their Airbrake account data via an API (Application Program Interface) as part of the Service. Any use of the API, including use of the API through a third-party product that accesses Airbrake, is bound by the terms of this agreement plus the following specific terms:

  • Abuse or excessively frequent requests to Airbrake via the API may result in the temporary or permanent suspension of your account’s access to the API. Airbrake, in its sole discretion, will determine abuse or excessive usage of the API. Airbrake will make a reasonable attempt via email to warn the account owner prior to suspension.
  • Airbrake reserves the right at any time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, your access to the API (or any part thereof) with or without notice.

Payment, Refunds, Overages, Upgrading and Downgrading Terms

  • All paid plans must enter a valid credit card.
  • Billing will commence immediately following an upgrade from a free plan to any paying plan.
  • The Service is billed in advance on a monthly basis and is non-refundable. There will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service, upgrade/downgrade refunds, or refunds for months unused with an open account. In order to treat everyone equally, no exceptions will be made.
  • The subscription fee owed is tied to the number of errors and/or events offered by the plan you select. The Airbrake pricing page reflects our current pricing schedule. Should you exceed the maximum number of errors and/or events allowed for a plan, you will be charged an on-demand fee for all overage errors and/or events collected within the plan period. Airbrake does offer the ability to set a predetermined "Usage Cap" which would limit the capture of any errors and/or transactions above and beyond the said cap, limiting any on-demand overage fees should you wish not to collect all of the errors and/or transactions within your environment. More details can be found in Airbrake documentation.
  • All fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties, excluding only United States (federal or state) taxes.
  • For any upgrades in your plan level, the credit card you provided us with will be automatically charged a prorated rate to initiate the new plan rate. You will also be charged for any on-demand errors your account has accumulated above your initial plan limit as of the date of the upgrade. Your billing cycle will reset as of the upgrade date and you will have full access to all features of the new plan level. Upon the anniversary of the upgrade date, you’ll be charged for the normal plan rate, plus any on-demand errors delivered above your plan limit.
  • For any downgrades in your plan level, the credit card you provided will be charged automatically for any on-demand errors accumulated during the billing cycle, and your billing cycle will restart the day of the downgrade. Once downgraded, your account will be credited with a prorated amount equal to the unused portion of the service for the remainder of the billing period. This credit balance will be applied to future Airbrake charges until it reaches $0. We do not offer refunds for downgrades. Downgrading your Service may cause the loss of Content, features, or capacity of your Account. Airbrake does not accept any liability for such loss.

Cancellation and Termination

  • You are solely responsible for properly canceling your account. An email or phone request to cancel your account is not considered cancellation. You can cancel your account at any time by clicking on the Settings link in the global navigation bar at the top of the screen, and going into the Account Settings tab. Under Account Settings, there is a cancel button in the upper right of the settings bar.
  • Your error details and related account information will be deleted from the Service within 90 days of cancellation. This information can not be recovered once it is deleted.
  • If you cancel the Service before the end of your current paid up month, your cancellation will take effect immediately and you will not be charged again. We do not offer refunds for cancellations.
  • Airbrake, in its sole discretion, has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service, or any other Airbrake service, for any reason at any time. Such termination of the Service will result in the deactivation or deletion of your Account or your access to your Account, and the forfeiture and relinquishment of all Content in your Account. Airbrake reserves the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time.

Annual Pricing Plan Terms

  • If you subscribe to an Airbrake Annual Pricing Plan, the credit card you provided us with will be automatically charged a full-year rate to initiate the new plan rate. You will have full access to all features of this new plan level, including On-Demand Errors and Events. You will be charged for any on-demand errors and events your account accumulates above your base plan's allotted monthly error threshold at the end of each monthly billing cycle. Upon the anniversary of your enrollment date, you’ll be charged the annualized rate, plus any on-demand errors and events delivered above your plan limit.
  • Any upgrades to a higher Tier, paid Airbrake Annual Pricing Plan will take effect immediately and the customer will be billed for the new annualized period at a prorated rate.
  • Downgrades to a lower Tier, paid Airbake Annual Pricing Plan will take effect immediately and the customer will pay for the new annualized price unless any prorated portion of the prior plan remains. If the downgrade results in a credit, the credit will be applied to your account for future charges. Credits don’t expire, but there are no refunds of credit balances.
  • Downgrades to a free Dev plan or canceling an Annual Pricing Plan account will take effect at the end of the period for which the customer pre-paid. You will have access to your account the entire time, but your account will not auto-renew on your next billing date.
  • You have the option to change from annualized pricing to monthly pricing, but you will lose any discounts associated with the Annual Pricing Plan and any remaining months left on your Annual Pricing Plan will be applied to your account as credits until they are exhausted.
  • If you are subscribed to a Monthly Airbrake Plan and wish to subscribe to an Annual Pricing Plan in the middle of your billing cycle, you will be charged the annualized price immediately.

  • The Terms of Service are governed by the laws of the State of California, exclusive of any choice of law principle that would require the application of the law of a different jurisdiction, and the laws of the United States of America, as applicable.
