Items covered by this Agreement
The following terms and conditions (hence the "General Terms") and, if any, terms and conditions unique to the usage of particular Services (hereafter the "Service Specific Terms") make up this Agreement. The Service Specific Terms shall take precedence over the General Terms in the case of a conflict.
Recognition of the Agreement
The Agreement may only be accepted by you if you are of legal age to engage into a binding contract. Use none of our services if you don't accept the General Terms. Use the relevant Service only if you agree to the General Terms but not any Service Specific Terms. You can indicate your approval of the Agreement by checking a box or clicking a button, or you can do it by using the Services.
Details of the Service
For organisations, we offer cloud software and applications, along with related offline and mobile apps (collectively, "Service" or "Services"). You are free to use the Services for both personal and professional purposes, as well as for internal business needs within the company you work for. Any Internet browser that the Services support can be used to connect to them. Access to the Internet and the tools required to utilise the Services must be obtained by you. With your user account, you can create and edit content and, if you so choose, publish and share it.
For the purposes of testing and evaluation, we might provide some Services as closed or open beta services ("Beta Service" or "Beta Services"). You acknowledge that we alone have the power to choose how long Beta Services will be tested and evaluated. The effectiveness of such testing and the choice, if any, to make the Beta Services available as paid services will only be determined by us. Your subscription to any Beta Service will not obligate you to purchase a subscription in order to utilise any premium service. Any of the Beta Services may be completely or partially discontinued at any time and from time to time, temporarily or permanently, with or without prior notice to you. You acknowledge and agree that, in the event that any of the Beta Services are modified, suspended, or terminated for any reason, Buopso shall not be liable to you or any third person for any damages resulting from, arising out of, or related thereto.
If you sign up for a free trial of one or more services, Buopso will make those services available to you for a limited time without charge until the earlier of the following dates: (i) the end of the applicable services' free trial period (unless you end it earlier), (ii) the beginning of the applicable services' paid subscription period, or (iii) termination by Buopso in its sole discretion. Unless you (i) buy the corresponding paid subscription plan for the account, (ii) buy applicable Service upgrades, or (iii) export such data before the trial period expires, all data you enter into the Services and any customizations you make during the free trial will be permanently lost. In spite of the provisions of this Section, the Services are provided during the free trial without any kind of guarantee, covenant, support, or obligation, to the fullest extent permissible by law.
User Sign-up Requirements
To access or utilise the Services, you must register for a user account by completing all necessary information. We advise that you and every other user from your organisation register for user accounts using your corporate contact information if you are an organisation representative and desire to use the Services for corporate internal purposes.

When prompted during the sign-up process, you agree to: (i) provide true, accurate, current, and complete information about yourself; and (ii) maintain and promptly update the information provided during sign-up to keep it true, accurate, current, and complete.

Payments and Fees
The Services are available under subscription plans of various durations. Payments for subscription plans of duration of less than a year can be made only by Credit Card. Your subscription will be automatically renewed at the end of each subscription period unless you downgrade your paid subscription plan to a free plan or inform us that you do not wish to renew the subscription. At the time of automatic renewal, the subscription fee will be charged to the Credit Card last used by you. We provide you the option of changing the details if you would like the payment for the renewal to be made through a different Credit Card. If you do not wish to renew the subscription, you must inform us at least seven days prior to the renewal date. If you have not downgraded to a free plan and if you have not informed us that you do not wish to renew the subscription, you will be presumed to have authorized Buopso to charge the subscription fee to the Credit Card last used by you.

You will not be charged for using any Service unless you have chosen a paid subscription plan, but we reserve the right to occasionally change the price of any Service or charge for use of Services that are currently provided free of charge. Any increase in charges will not take effect until the end of your then current billing cycle.
You agree to pay Buopso such Taxes in addition to the subscription fees in the event that any tax, such as GST, VAT, sales tax, or the like, is chargeable by Buopso in accordance with any local, state, provincial, or foreign laws with respect to your subscription to our Services ("Taxes"). Buopso shall provide you with an invoice in the format required by the applicable local, state, provincial, or foreign laws to help you avail the applicable invoicing discounts.
Organisation Administrators and Accounts
If your organisation account is created and configured on your behalf by a third party, it is likely that s/he has assumed administrator role for your organisation. Make sure that you enter into a suitable agreement with s/he before you specify one or more administrators when you sign up for an account for your organisation. The administrators will have the right to configure the Services based on your requirements and manage end users in your organisation account.
You understand that Buopso is not responsible for account administration and internal management of the Services for you and that it is your responsibility to (i) ensure confidentiality of your organisation account password, (ii) appoint competent individuals as administrators for managing your organisation account, and (iii) ensure that all activities that occur in connection with your organisation account comply with this Agreement.
You are responsible for taking the necessary precautions to prevent your organisation from losing control of the administrator accounts. You may specify a process to be followed for recovering control in the event of such a loss of control of the administrator accounts by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, provided that the process is acceptable to Buopso.

You understand that using the Services may include receiving communications from Buopso, such as service announcements, administrative messages, and newsletters.

However, you will not be able to stop receiving service announcements and administrative messages.
You must respond to the complainant directly within 10 days of receiving the complaint forwarded by us and include Buopso in the communication.

The location of the cloud facility from which you are served depends on the mapping of your region/country to the available cloud facilities at the time of your sign-up. We may migrate your account or require you to migrate your account to a different cloud facility in the event of any updates to the region/country to cloud facility mapping at any point of time. You must not mask your internet protocol (IP) address at the time of sign-up since your region/country is determined base on your IP address. If, at any time, your actual region/country is found to be different from the region/country in our records, Buopso may take appropriate action such as migrate your account or require you to migrate your account to the cloud facility corresponding to your region/country, or close your account and deny the Service to you. If you are served from a cloud facility outside your region/country and a Buopso group entity has an office in your region/country, apart from storing the data in the cloud facility assigned to you, we may store a local copy of the data in your region/country.
