These E-commerce Terms are Additional Terms and, with the General Terms and the Payment Terms, are part of the legal agreement between you and SumUp Limited (“SumUp”, “we”, “us”). Unless otherwise defined herein, capitalised terms have the same meaning as in the General Terms and the Payment Terms. 

1. E-commerce Services

SumUp’s E-commerce Services include SumUp’s e-commerce platforms, as described on our Website and other available e-commerce products and services that enable you to create an online store to sell goods and services to your customers (“Online Store”).

You will be able to accept payments from your customers for your Online Store sales through different Payment Services offered by SumUp. Your access to and use of the Payment Services is governed by the Payment Terms.

We reserve the right to modify, suspend, or terminate the Online Store and E-commerce Services for any reason in accordance with our General Terms, the Payment Terms, or these E-commerce Terms. 

2. Themes

As part of our E-commerce Services, we may provide you with design templates for your Online Store ("Themes"), which may be created by SumUp or by third-party authors. If you download a Theme, you are licensed to use it for your Online Store only.

You may be entitled to modify a Theme to suit your Online Store, but you must respect the rights of the Theme’s author. You acknowledge that the intellectual property rights of a Theme remain the property of the author of the Theme. In case of an alleged violation of those rights by you, SumUp may suspend or deactivate your access to the E-commerce Services.
