Terms of Service for Data Backup and Recovery
You must create an AUC account that is protected by a username and password (Your “Account”). You agree to provide AUC with accurate and complete information when You register for an Account. You agree to keep Your password and other Account details secret, and not share them with anyone else, in order to prevent unauthorized access to Your Account. If Your contact information or other Account information changes, You must update Your Account details promptly. After You create an Account, the Services can begin to upload, download and access content and materials for which You have a legal right to copy, publish, share, store, or otherwise use (Your “User Data”).
If You subscribed to the Services through a legal entity such as Your business, or through a AUC authorized reseller, You acknowledge and agree that other users may have been designated to access, control or manage Your Account and Your User Data. You, not AUC, are solely responsible for Your Account and User Data. AUC is not liable for any loss or damage arising from any access to, sharing or use of, Your Account and User Data. If You believe there has been unauthorized access to Your Account or Your User Data, You must notify [email protected] immediately.
To ensure there is no disruption in Your Service, Your subscription will automatically renew and AUC will charge the then-current renewal fees to the credit card associated with Your Account, unless You cancel Your subscription. If You cancel Your subscription, AUC is not obligated to refund subscription charges already paid. Your subscription will automatically terminate or expire, and Your account will be disabled, upon the earliest of (1) non-renewal, cancellation or expiration of a subscription or failure to pay subscription fees when due, if applicable, (2) AUC’s discontinuation of the Services, or (3) failure to comply with these Terms. You acknowledge and agree that after non-renewal, cancellation or expiration of Your subscription, AUC’s policy is to automatically delete all User Data protected by Your Account that is stored on AUC servers or on AUC’s third-party cloud storage providers.
AUC may offer free Services. Free Services require an active Account and may be subject to certain usage limits, which are explained in the documentation for each free Service. Free Services associated with Your Account that remain inactive for a period of fifteen days may be removed and Your User Data deleted. AUC may discontinue free Services at any time and from time-to-time, at which point Your access to the free Service will end and any User Data will be deleted.
AUC may designate certain enhancements or new features of the AUC Services as “Beta Services.” Beta Services are not intended for use in a production environment. You acknowledge and agree that the Beta Services (1) are experimental in nature, have not been fully tested and may be discontinued at any time, (2) may not meet Your requirements or perform as intended, (3) may not be uninterrupted, error free or free of faults, (4) are for the sole purpose of evaluating and testing the service and providing feedback to AUC, and (5) You shall inform Your employees and other users regarding the nature of Beta Services. You acknowledge and agree that the Beta Services are subject to the above conditions and expectations of performance and reliability, and shall be subject to these Terms.
Compliance with Law
You are solely responsible for ensuring that as a subscriber of the Services, You are in compliance with all applicable federal, state and local laws, foreign laws, rules and regulations. You shall be solely responsible for Your User Data. AUC does not endorse and has no control over the content of User Data submitted by You or other users. AUC assumes no responsibility whatsoever in connection with or arising from User Data or for actively monitoring User Data for inappropriate or illegal content. In addition, the Services may use data received or obtained from Your device to determine Your location (“Location Data”). By subscribing to the Services, You hereby consent and permit AUC to use Location Data in order to provide the Services to You. AUC does not make any representation, warranty or guarantee of accuracy, completeness or timeliness with respect to any Location Data.
You shall defend, indemnify and hold AUC, its officers, directors, shareholders, affiliates, suppliers and licensors, harmless from and against any and all damages, fines, penalties, assessments, liabilities, losses, costs and expenses (including attorneys’ fees, expert fees and out-of-pocket expenses) in connection with Your subscription to the Services, Your violation of these Terms, any violation of the rights of any other person or entity by You, including any intellectual property rights, any misuse or fraudulent use of credit and debit cards, any claims that the Services were exported by You in violation of applicable laws, rules and regulations, including but not limited to, any claim that Your User Data, or Location Data is illegal.
AUC may, immediately and without notice to You, terminate Your Account and cease providing the Services to you if You (1) harm, disrupt or otherwise engage in activity that diminishes AUC’s brand, Services, computer system or network, (2) misrepresent Your identity, impersonate any person or attempt to gain access to or illegally track any Account, computers or networks related to the Services, without authorization, (3) manipulate a Service in any manner not specified by AUC, (4) interfere with AUC’s policy with respect to excessive bandwidth usage, as determined by AUC, (5) store, backup or distribute any illegal or unauthorized files or data, or material protected by intellectual property rights of a third-party unless You own or have appropriate rights to such material, (6) store, backup or distribute material that contains viruses, Trojan horses, worms, corrupted files or any other similar material that may damage the operation of the Services or another person’s Device, data or property, (7) directly or indirectly reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, modify, reproduce or create derivative works of the Services, (8) assign, rent, loan or otherwise transfer the Services, or (9) remove or alter any proprietary notices (e.g., copyright, trademark notices, legends, etc.) received in the provision of the Services.
