2. USE OF THE CLOUD SERVICES
2.1 Visitors and Customers. A user can visit the Website in a visitor (non-registered) capacity; provided, to use the Cloud Services, the user must register a Customer Account. Upon registration, the Customer will receive log-in credentials to the Customer Account to access the Cloud Services. The Customer shall have sole responsibility for all activities relating to such Customer’s Account and shall immediately inform V2 Cloud of any unauthorized use of the Customer’s Account.
2.2 Right of Use. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, V2 Cloud hereby grants the Customer a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, non-transferrable license to access and use the Website and Cloud Services solely in accordance with this Agreement, the limitations of the Subscription Plan and for your own internal business purposes (unless your Customer Account is designated as a reseller account). The Customer represents and warrants that: (a) all registration information submitted is truthful and accurate; (b) you will maintain the accuracy of such information; (c) you are at least 18 years of age and have the capacity and authority to enter into this Agreement; and (d) your use of the Cloud Services does not and will not violate any applicable law or regulation. If you are under 18, you may not register or attempt to register for Cloud Services.
2.3 Restrictions. You may not, directly or indirectly, (a) sublicense, resell (unless your Customer Account is designated as a reseller account), transfer, assign, time share or otherwise commercially exploit or make the Cloud Services or any portion thereof available to any third party; (b) use the Cloud Services for any purpose or in any manner that is unlawful (including without limitation in violation of any data, privacy, anti-bribery or export control laws) or is prohibited by this Agreement; (c) to engage in crypto currency mining (d) read or attempt to read or derive the source code of the Cloud Services or the software underlying the Cloud Services (except as permitted by law); (e) work around any technical limitations in the Cloud Services; (f) interfere or attempt to interfere with or disrupt the integrity, security, functionality or performance of the Cloud Services or its components; (g) use the Cloud Services in any manner that damages or impairs the Website or interferes with any other party’s use of the Cloud Services; (h) modify, translate, adapt, create or attempt to create any derivative works of the Cloud Services; (i) access the Cloud Services if you are a competitor of ours or use the Cloud Services to build a similar or competitive work; (j) hack or otherwise attempt to gain unauthorized access to the Cloud Services or its related systems or networks; or (k) use or launch any automated system, including, “robots,” “spiders,” or “offline readers,” that sends more request messages to our servers in a given period of time than a human can reasonably produce in the same period by using a conventional browser. Customers or End Users may not attempt to tamper with any (i) license activation or (ii) software V2 Cloud pre-loads or pre-installed software on the Cloud Services (including the operating system software), in a way that is not part of normal operations or that attempts to circumvent charges for the Cloud Service. V2 Cloud may terminate the account of any Customer, and block access of any End User, if V2 Cloud, in acting in good faith, determines that there is violation of this section. For clarity sake, crypto currency mining, denial of service attacks, spamming or any other activity designed to, or capable of disrupting, damaging or limiting the functionality of any Cloud Services is strictly prohibited. This does not affect the Customer’s right to use consensus mechanisms such as “proof of stake” to verify transactions in the blockchain, provided that any such mechanisms do not fall under the restrictions set forth above.
2.4 Third Party Content. The Cloud Service may include or may make available Third-Party Content directly to Customer. The Customer is responsible for evaluating whether to use the Third-Party Content and is subject to the pricing, terms and conditions and privacy policies of the third-party provider. V2 Cloud does not screen, audit or endorse any Third-Party Content. V2 Cloud shall not assume any responsibility for Third Party Content. V2 Cloud may terminate the account of any Customer, and block access of any End User, who infringes any V2 Cloud or third-party intellectual property rights or misuses the limited license in granted herein.
3. TRIAL OF THE CLOUD SERVICE
3.1 Trial Services. A user may have access to certain limited functionality within the Cloud Service that V2 Cloud elects to make available on a free trial basis or paid trial, depending on the desired level of support or customization (“Trial Services”) through the Website. The Trial Services will be free of charge until the earlier of (a) the end of the Trial Service period for which the user registered, or (b) the start date of any Subscription Plan.
3.2 Warranty; Loss of Data. ANY DATA ENTERED INTO THE CLOUD SERVICES, AND ANY CUSTOMIZATIONS MADE TO THE CLOUD SERVICES BY OR FOR CUSTOMER, DURING THE TRIAL SERVICES WILL BE PERMANENTLY LOST UNLESS CUSTOMER PURCHASES A SUBSCRIPTION PLAN TO THE SAME SERVICES AS THOSE COVERED BY THE TRIAL SERVICES, PURCHASE UPGRADED SERVICES, OR EXPORT SUCH DATA, BEFORE THE END OF THE TRIAL SERVICES PERIOD. NOTWITHSTANDING SECTION 10 (WARRANTY DISCLAIMER & LIMITATION OF LIABILITY), DURING THE TRIAL SERVICES, THE CLOUD SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS-IS” WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY.
4. SECURITY AND DATA PRIVACY
4.2 Personal Data and DPA. By using the Cloud Services , you agree that you are the data controller of any personal data provided on your behalf or on behalf of any End User’s and the Data Processing Agreement (the “DPA”) will apply to V2 Cloud’s processing of such personal data. Any capitalized terms not otherwise defined in the DPA shall have the same meaning as in this Agreement. In the event of a conflict between this Agreement and the DPA, the DPA will control. You acknowledge that the Cloud Services have not been designed to process or manage sensitive information and you agree not to use the Cloud Services to collect, manage or process sensitive information. V2 Cloud will not have, and V2 Cloud specifically disclaims, any liability that may result from your use of the Cloud Services to collect, process or manage sensitive information.
5. CUSTOMER RESPONSIBILITIES
5.1 Content. The Customer is solely responsible for the development, operation, maintenance, and use of the Content.

We also may cooperate with appropriate law enforcement agencies, regulators, or other appropriate third parties to help with the investigation and prosecution of illegal conduct by providing network and systems information related to alleged violations of this Agreement.
6. SERVICE LEVEL AGREEMENT
6.1 General Support. V2 Cloud provides technical support for all Customer Account holders free of charge. To receive technical support, the Customer must fill in the form online under the “Support” or “Contact” section of Website or email [email protected]. A priority phone support plan can be purchased separately through your Customer Account. Technical support is provided for matters directly related to Cloud Services and does not include support on third party software or Third-Party Content, or any software that is pre-installed.
6.2 System Maintenance. V2 Cloud will use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that Cloud Services within V2 Cloud’s control are available with a monthly uptime percentage of at least 99.95 % (calculated as outlined below), in each case during any monthly billing cycle. Notwithstanding the foregoing, V2 Cloud may need to carry out routine maintenance or urgent maintenance or the Cloud Services may become unavailable for reasons not within V2 Cloud’s control. In such case, V2 Cloud shall use commercially reasonable efforts to inform the Customer of any downtime and restore the Cloud Services as soon as reasonably practicable. In the event V2 Cloud fails to use commercially reasonable efforts and the Cloud Services remain unavailable to Customer for more than three (3) business days of Customer first notifying V2 Cloud of such unavailability, Customer will be eligible to receive a Cloud Service Credit. For a Cloud Service to be considered unavailable, it must be inaccessible from the outside and the problem be related exclusively to V2 Cloud. For example, Cloud Service is not considered unavailable if third-party software (e.g. firewall) is blocking incoming connections.
6.3 Monthly Uptime Percentage. The monthly uptime percentage is calculated by subtracting from 100% the percentage of minutes during the month in which your Cloud Services was unavailable.
6.4 Cloud Service Credits. A “Cloud Service Credit” is a dollar amount that V2 Cloud may credit to an eligible Customer Account. Cloud Service Credits are calculated as a percentage of the total charges paid by the Customer (excluding one-time payments such as third-party licenses) for the Cloud Services. V2 Cloud will apply any Cloud Service Credits on the next invoice. At V2 Cloud’s discretion, we may issue the Cloud Service Credit to the credit card used to pay for the billing cycle in which the unavailability occurred. Cloud Service Credits will not entitle the Customer to any refund or other payment from V2 Cloud. A Cloud Service Credit will be applicable and issued only if the credit amount for the applicable monthly billing cycle is greater than one dollar ($1 USD). Cloud Service Credits may not be transferred or applied to any other account.
|Monthly Uptime Percentage||Service Credit Percentage|
|Less than 99.95% but equal to
or greater than 99.0%
|Less than 99.0%||30%|
7. FEES AND PAYMENT
7.1 Fee. You will pay us the applicable fees and charges for use of the Cloud Services in accordance with the Subscription Plan (“Fees”). You agree to pay the Fees monthly or annually in advance according to your Subscription Plan, or as otherwise agreed between you and us, by credit card or another method accepted on the Website. If you decide to pay for the Cloud Services according to the invoice(s), you agree to pay all undisputed invoices upon receipt, unless otherwise mutually agreed between you and us in writing. From receipt, you have three (3) business days to dispute an invoice otherwise it will be deemed accepted. You agree that we may charge interest of 1.5% per month for past due invoices, or the highest rate permitted by law, and you are liable for reasonable attorney fees and collection costs arising from our efforts to collect past due amounts. If the Cloud Services, or portion thereof, are suspended for non-payment, we may charge a re-activation fee to reinstate the Cloud Services. Nothing in this section limits our right to terminate this Agreement for cause. Unless otherwise stated in this Agreement, all payment obligations are non-cancellable, and all Fees paid are non-refundable.
7.2 Invoice and Billing. We will invoice you on the first day of your billing cycle depending on the Subscription Plan. New Subscription Plans (if any) will be charged on a pro rata basis to the number of days remaining to the current billing period, and then added accordingly to your next billing period. If you fail to pay an invoice or make a fraudulent payment we reserve the right to cancel your subscription and access to the Cloud Services, and any data associated with your Subscription Plan or the Cloud Services, upon notice. All invoices and details of Subscription Plans are available in your Customer Account. Any bank fees and charges shall be borne solely by you.
7.3 Fee Change. V2 Cloud may increase or add new fees and charges for any existing services by giving the Customer at least 30 days advance notice.
7.4 Taxes. Unless otherwise stated, all fees and charges payable by the Customer are exclusive of applicable taxes and duties, including VAT and applicable sales tax. Customer will provide V2 Cloud any information reasonably requested to determine whether V2 Cloud are obligated to collect VAT from the Customer, including the Customer’s VAT identification number. If the Customer is legally entitled to an exemption from any sales, use, or similar transaction tax, Customer shall provide a valid tax exemption certificate from the appropriate taxing authority. V2 Cloud will apply the tax exemption certificates to charges under the relevant Subscription Plan occurring after the date V2 Cloud receives the tax exemption certificates. If any deduction or withholding is required by law, Customer will notify V2 Cloud and will pay V2 Cloud any additional amounts necessary to ensure that the net amount that V2 Cloud receives, after any deduction and withholding, equals the amount V2 Cloud would have received if no deduction or withholding had been required. Additionally, Customer will provide V2 Cloud with documentation showing that the withheld and deducted amounts have been paid to the relevant taxing authority.
8. TERM; TERMINATION
8.1 Term. The term of this Agreement will commence on the Effective Date and will remain in effect for as long as you access or use the Cloud Services or the Website.
8.2 Subscription Term and Renewal. If you are a Customer with a Subscription Plan, your initial subscription term will be specified in your Subscription Plan and, unless otherwise agreed by V2 Cloud in writing, your subscription will automatically renew for the same period on the then-current terms. You may prevent renewal of the subscription by logging into your Customer Account and cancelling the Subscription Plan.
8.3 Termination for Convenience. You may terminate your Subscription Plan for any reason by cancelling your Subscription Plan through the Customer Account. You can check this tutorial on how to terminate. If you terminate for convenience, you are not eligible for a refund on any prepaid but unused Fees and you will continue to have access to the Cloud Services until the Fees are used and all Fees due but unpaid shall become immediately due and payable. We may terminate your Subscription Plan and cancel access to our Cloud Service for any suspension of fraud, negligence or intentional misconduct by providing you 3 days advance notice and for any other reason by providing you with 7 days advance notice.
8.4 Termination for Cause.
- By Either Party. Either party may terminate this Agreement for cause, as to any or all Cloud Service, (i) by providing thirty (30) days’ advance notice to the other party of a curable material breach if such breach remains uncured at the expiration of such notice period, or (ii) immediately, if the other party becomes the subject of a petition in bankruptcy or any other proceeding relating to insolvency, cessation of business, liquidation or assignment for the benefit of creditors. If we terminate this Agreement for cause, you will promptly pay all unpaid Fees due through the end of the applicable Subscription Plan and no refund shall be due to you.
- By Us. We may also terminate this Agreement for cause (i) if our relationship with a third party partner who provides software or other technology we use to provide the Cloud Services expires, terminates or requires us to change the way we provide the software or other technology as part of the Cloud Services, (ii) if we believe providing the Cloud Services could create a substantial economic or technical burden or material security risk for us, (iii) in order to comply with the law or requests of governmental entities, or (iv) if we determine use of the Cloud Services by you or any End Users or our provision of any of the Cloud Services to you or any End Users has become impractical or unfeasible for any legal or regulatory reason.
8.5 Temporary Suspension. V2 Cloud reserves the right to monitor compliance with this Agreement. V2 Cloud may, without prejudice to our rights under this Agreement or applicable law, suspend any Cloud Service, Trial Service, Customer or any End User’s license to access or use any portion or all of the Cloud Services immediately upon notice (which may be electronic) if (a) V2 Cloud determine in good faith that the use of the Cloud Services violates any applicable law, the terms of this Agreement or the rights of any third party; (b) we are prohibited by court order or order of another governmental authority from providing access to the Cloud Services; or (c) we reasonably determine that the Cloud Services are being used for any abusive, illegal or fraudulent activity that the Cloud Services are subject to a security incident, denial of service attack, or other event that impacts the security of the Cloud Services or any Content. Such suspension may apply to specific jurisdictions, lines of business, a specific customer, End User or a group of End Users. If you have an active Subscription Term, V2 Cloud will use commercially reasonable efforts to give you thirty (30) days after notice of suspension to back up your data stored in the Cloud Services, after which we may remove it entirely from our servers.
8.6 Suspension and Termination of a Trial Service. We may suspend, limit, or terminate any Trial Service for any reason at any time without notice.
8.7 Effect of Termination. Upon expiration or termination of this Agreement, including by your cancellation, or if you de-register your Customer Account, all your rights or any End User associated with that Customer Account shall terminate immediately. Customer acknowledges and agrees that V2 Cloud will permanently erase all your data, Content and information stored on V2 Cloud servers within seven (7) days or by the end of the back-up period selected as part of the Subscription Plan. Provided that, V2 Cloud may retain copies of such data and information to the extent required by law or as created by automatic computer backup and archived as part of normal computerized archiving systems, maintaining necessary technical and organizational measures. You remain responsible for all fees and charges you have incurred through the date of termination, including fees and charges for in-process tasks completed after the date of termination.
8.8 Survival. Upon any termination of this Agreement for any reason, all provisions regarding indemnification, warranty, liability and limits thereon, and any provisions which expressly or by their nature are required to survive such termination in order to achieve their purpose, shall so survive until it shall no longer be necessary for them to survive in order to achieve their purpose.
9. Proprietary Rights
9.1 Your Content. As between you and us, you or your licensors own all rights, title, and interest in and to your content. Except as provided in this Section 9, we obtain no rights under this Agreement from you or any End User to the Content, including any related intellectual property rights.

10.3 Limitation of Liability. V2 Cloud and its affiliates or licensors will not be liable to you for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages (including damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, or data), even if a party has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Further, neither we nor any of our affiliates or licensors will be responsible for any compensation, reimbursement, or damages arising in connection with: (a) your inability to use the Cloud Services, including as a result of any (i) termination or suspension of this Agreement or your use of or access to the Cloud Services, (ii) our discontinuation of any or all of the Cloud Services, or, (iii) without limiting any obligations under section 6 (Service Level Agreement), any unanticipated or unscheduled downtime of all or a portion of the Cloud Services for any reason, including as a result of power outages, system failures or other interruptions; (b) the cost of procurement of substitute goods or services; (c) any investments, expenditures, or commitments by you in connection with this Agreement or your use of or access to the Cloud Services; or (d) any unauthorized access to, alteration of, or the deletion, destruction, damage, loss or failure to store any of the Content or other data.
