These Terms and Conditions (henceforth "Terms") apply to the "Cloud Pens" service (henceforth "Cloud Pens Service") provided by Pagani Pens SA, Via Ponteggia 19 - 6814 Cadempino, Ticino, Switzerland (henceforth "Pagani").
About the Cloud Pens Service
The Cloud Pens Service is an additional service offered by Pagani (through its Prodir brand) to companies which purchase writing instruments. The Cloud Pens Service comprise the customization of writing tool with a QR code and a "software as a service" solution that is only offered together with the writing instruments and is not available separately as a stand-alone solution.
In essence, the Cloud Pens Service allows companies to extend their communication message from the pen to a digital environment, via an Internet page (landing page) connected to a QR Code printed on the pen, produced by Pagani. The Customer receives access to the web application administration of its Customer Page (admin dashboard), through which it can update the contents, customize them, monitor the results of the campaign (scans of the QR Code and click on the page), improve its performance and take advantage of the retargeting feature, to reach the target again through digital advertising campaigns on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Google Display Network.
Prodir Reseller Partners can propose their Customers the Cloud Pens Service with the following two service options:
- "You design your page" (Customer Page designed by the Customer or the respective Reseller Partner, not by Pagani)
