By signing this CloudU service agreement (the “Agreement”), you agree to the following terms and conditions. If you are executing this Agreement on behalf of a company, you represent that you have the authority to bind yourself or your company to the terms governing the use of CloudU’s online service (the “Service”). The terms “you” or “your” refer to the individual or a legal entity, as applicable, that registers for or uses the Service. This Agreement states the general terms and conditions by which CloudU will deliver and you will receive any of the services and/or software applications provided by CloudU.
Welcome. As part of the Service, CloudU will provide you with use of the Service, including a browser interface and data encryption, transmission, access and storage. Your registration for, or use of, the Service shall be deemed to be your agreement to abide by this Agreement.
Charges and Payment of Fees. You will pay all fees or charges to your account in accordance with the fees, charges, and billing terms in effect at the time a fee or charge is due and payable. You must provide CloudU or its authorized provider with valid credit card or purchase order information as a condition to signing up for the Service. You must also report and pay any applicable taxes to the appropriate governmental agency. Purchase orders may be subject to credit approval.
CloudU charges and collects in advance for use of the Service. CloudU will automatically renew and bill your credit card or issue an invoice to you as follows: (a) every month for monthly subscriptions, (b) upon the commencement of the initial term and then at each subsequent anniversary for annual subscriptions. The renewal charge will be equal to the then-current number of total licenses times the then-current license fee in effect at the time of renewal. Licenses added or subtracted during a billing period will be billed on a pro rata basis. Charges will be based on the number of licenses subscribed or contracted for, whether or not such licenses are actively used. CloudU reserves the right to change the fees, applicable charges and usage policies and to introduce new charges at any time, upon at least 30 days prior notice to you, which notice may be provided by e-mail.
For credit card payers, invoices will be generated at the start of a subscription period and your credit card will be charged simultaneously. If paying by other means, invoices will be generated at the start of a subscription period and approximately one month in advance of the start of any renewal period and shall be due within 30 days. Your account will be considered delinquent if payment in full is not received by the subscription period start date.
You agree to provide CloudU or its designee with complete and accurate billing and contact information if the terms of your CloudU account require you to pay for the Service. This information includes your legal company name, street address, e-mail address, and name and telephone number of an authorized billing contact. You agree to update this information within 30 days of any change to it. If the contact information you have provided is false or fraudulent, CloudU reserves the right to terminate your access to the Service in addition to any other legal remedies.
If you believe that you have been incorrectly billed by CloudU, you must contact us in writing within 60 days of the invoice date of the invoice containing the amount in question to be eligible to receive an adjustment or credit.
Non-Payment. CloudU reserves the right to suspend or terminate this Agreement and your access to the Service if your account becomes delinquent. Delinquent invoices are subject to interest of 1.5% per month on any outstanding balance, or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is less, plus all expenses of collection including attorney’s fees. You will continue to be charged for your licenses during any period of suspension. If you or CloudU initiate termination of this Agreement, you will be obligated to pay the balance due on your account computed in accordance with the Charges and Payment of Fees section above. You agree that CloudU may charge such unpaid fees to your credit card or otherwise bill you for such unpaid fees.

‘Non-personal data’ (NPD) is information that is in no way personally identifiable.
‘Personal data’ (PD) means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person. PD is in many ways the same as Personally Identifiable Information (PII). However, PD is broader in scope and covers more data.
A “visitor” is someone who merely browses our website. A “member” is someone who has registered with us to use or buy our services and products. The term “user” is a collective identifier that refers to either a visitor or a member.

Protecting Children’s Privacy
Even though our website is not designed for use by anyone under the age of 16, we realize that a child under the age of 16 may attempt to access our website. We do not knowingly collect PD from children under the age of 16. If you are a parent or guardian and believe that your child is using our website, please contact us. Before we remove any information, we may ask for proof of identification to prevent malicious removal of account information.

You can always opt out of receiving further email correspondence from us or our affiliates. We will not sell, rent, or trade your email address to any unaffiliated third party without your permission except in the sale or transfer of our business, or if our company files for bankruptcy.
Our Security Policy
We have built our website using industry-standard security measures and authentication tools to protect the security of your PD. We and the third parties who provide services for us, also maintain technical and physical safeguards to protect your PD. When we collect your credit card information through our website, we will encrypt it before it travels over the Internet using industry-standard technology for conducting secure online transactions. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee against the loss or misuse of your PD or secure data transmission over the Internet because of its nature.
We strongly urge you to protect any password you may have for our website and to not share it with anyone. You should always log out of our website when you finish using it, especially if you are sharing or using a computer in a public place.
Use of Your Credit Card
You may have to provide a credit card to buy products and services from our website. We use third-party billing services and have no control over these services. We use our commercially reasonable efforts to make sure your credit card number is kept strictly confidential by using only third-party billing services that use industry-standard encryption technology to protect your credit card number from unauthorized use. However, you understand and agree that we are in no way responsible for any misuse of your credit card number.
Transferring PD from the European Union
(PD) that we collect from you may be stored, processed, and transferred between any of the countries in which we operate, specifically, the United States of America. The European Union has not found the United States and some other countries to have an adequate level of protection of PD under Article 45 of the GDPR. Our company relies on derogations for specific situations as defined in Article 49 of the GDPR. For European Union customers and users, with your consent, your PD may be transferred outside the European Union to the United States. We will use your PD to provide the goods, services, and/or information you request from us to perform a contract with you or to satisfy a legitimate interest of our company in a manner that does not outweigh your freedoms and rights. Wherever we transfer, process or store your PD, we will take reasonable steps to protect it. We will use the information we collect from you in accordance with our privacy notice. By using our website, services, or products, you agree to the transfers of your PD described within this section.
Changes to Our Privacy Notice
We reserve the right to change this privacy notice at any time. If our company decides to change this privacy notice, we will post those changes on our website so that our users and customers are always aware of what information we collect, use, and disclose. If at any time we decide to disclose or use your PD in a method different from that specified at the time it was collected, we will provide advance notice by email (sent to the email address on file in your account). Otherwise, we will use and disclose our users’ and customers’ PD in agreement with the privacy notice in effect when the information was collected. In all cases, your continued use of our website, services, and products after any change to this privacy notice will constitute your acceptance of such change.
