The Subscription Tiers includes a free Subscription and a number of paid Subscriptions. Descriptions of each Subscription Tier is available on our Website www.vidstep.io.
By clicking to accept or agree to the Terms, paying for your Subscription or otherwise accepting the benefit of any part of the Solution, you agree to be bound by these Terms which form a binding contractual agreement between you or the company you represent (the ‘Client’, or ‘you’) and Vidstep Pty Ltd (ACN: 634 833 453) ABN (‘Vidstep’, ‘our’, ‘we’ or ‘us’).
