This Terms of Service (this “Agreement”) contains the terms and conditions that govern your access to and use of the Service Offerings (as defined below) and is an agreement between Cloudesire.com S.r.l. (“CLOUDESIRE,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) and you or the entity you represent (“you”). This Agreement takes effect when you click an “I Accept” button or check box presented with these terms or, if earlier, when you use any of the “Service Offerings” (the “Effective Date”). You represent to us that you are lawfully able to enter into contracts (e.g., you are not a minor). If you are entering into this Agreement for an entity, such as the company you work for, you represent to us that you have legal authority to bind that entity.
Please see Section 14 for definitions of certain capitalized terms used in this Agreement.
Introduction: the Marketplace
Intro.1) The CLOUDESIRE Marketplace is a venue operated by CLOUDESIRE that allows Content to be offered, sold, and bought. Content may be sold by CLOUDESIRE or a third party (also known as “Seller”), and the party offering or selling the Content may specify separate terms and conditions and privacy policies for the use of the Content. If the Content is offered or sold by a third party, that party will be the seller of record for the Content. CLOUDESIRE is not a party to the terms with respect to Content offered or sold by third parties. Any Content of third parties offered through the CLOUDESIRE Marketplace constitutes “Third Party Content” under the Agreement. While CLOUDESIRE may help facilitate the resolution of disputes between you and third parties, CLOUDESIRE is not responsible for Third Party Content and has no control over and does not guarantee the quality, safety or legality of items advertised, the truth or accuracy of Third Party Content or listings, or the ability of sellers to offer the Content.
Intro.2) Except to the extent Content is provided to you under a separate license that expressly states otherwise, neither you nor any End User may, or may attempt to, (a) modify, alter, tamper with, repair, or otherwise create derivative works of any Content, (b) reverse engineer, disassemble, or decompile the Content or apply any other process or procedure to derive the source code of any software included in the Content, (c) resell or sublicense the Content, (d) transfer Content outside the Services without specific authorization to do so, or (e) tamper with or circumvent any controls or make unauthorized copies of the Content.
Intro.3) CLOUDESIRE may stop providing the Marketplace (or any features of or listings within the Marketplace) to you at CLOUDESIRE’s sole discretion, without prior notice to you. In addition, CLOUDESIRE may disable or remove Content already purchased, if CLOUDESIRE determines in its sole discretion that the Content may violate any CLOUDESIRE policies or any other regulations, policies or laws.
Intro.4) You authorize CLOUDESIRE, its affiliates, and its third-party payment processors and any service providers to charge the payment method you select in your CLOUDESIRE account for Content that you purchase into the Marketplace. This may include one-time payments as well as recurring payments. A “recurring payment” is a payment that occurs at the specified intervals and amounts provided at the time of purchase (e.g. annually or monthly). The applicable fees and billing periods for the Content are listed on the confirmation screen when you place your order. Your authorizations will remain until cancelled. You may cancel your subscriptions at any time by logging into your dashboard on the CLOUDESIRE Marketplace. Unless we specify otherwise, only valid credit cards or valid PayPal accounts may be used to purchase a recurring payment subscription.
1. Use of the Service Offerings
1.1 Generally. You may access and use the Service Offerings in accordance with this Agreement. Service Level Agreements may apply to certain Service Offerings. You will adhere to all laws, rules, and regulations applicable to your use of the Service Offerings, including the Service Terms, the Acceptable Use Policy and the other Policies as defined in Section 14.
1.2.1 Your Account. To access the Services, you must create a CLOUDESIRE account associated with a valid e-mail address. Unless explicitly permitted by the Service Terms, you may only create one account per email address . You are responsible for all activities that occur under your account, regardless of whether the activities are undertaken by you, your employees or a third party (including your contractors or agents) and, except to the extent caused by our breach of this Agreement, we and our affiliates are not responsible for unauthorized access to your account. You will contact us immediately if you believe an unauthorized third party may be using your account or if your account information is lost or stolen. You may terminate your account and this Agreement at any time in accordance with Section 7.
1.2.2 Type of Accounts. You have available 2 types of accounts in accordance with this Agreement: you can distribute, sell, monitor the shelf-life of your Services (“Thir Party Content Provider” or “Seller” Account), or you can buy one or more Services made available through our Service Offerings (“Customer” or “End User” or “Buyer” Account)
1.3 Support to You. If you would like support for the Services other than the support we generally provide to other users of the Services without charge, you may enroll for customer support in accordance with the terms of the CLOUDESIRE Support Guidelines.
1.4 Third Party Content. Third Party Content, such as software applications provided by third parties, may be made available directly to you by other companies or individuals under separate terms and conditions, including separate fees and charges. Because we may not have tested or screened the Third Party Content, your use of any Third Party Content is at your sole risk.
1.5 Access to Service Offerings. CLOUDESIRE Marketplace is made available in as-a-Service mode. Access will be granted “in hosting” through URLs; protected credentials (Unique Username and Password) will be provided to all registered users.
2.1 To the Service Offerings. We may change, discontinue, or deprecate any of the Service Offerings (including the Service Offerings as a whole) or change or remove features or functionality of the Service Offerings from time to time. We will notify you of any material change to or discontinuation of the Service Offerings.
2.2 To the APIs. We may change, discontinue or deprecate any APIs for the Services from time to time but will use commercially reasonable efforts to continue supporting the previous version of any API changed, discontinued, or deprecated for 12 months after the change, discontinuation, or deprecation (except if doing so (a) would pose a security or intellectual property issue, (b) is economically or technically burdensome, or (c) is needed to comply with the law or requests of governmental entities).
2.3 To the Service Level Agreements. We may change, discontinue or add Service Level Agreements from time to time in accordance with Section 12.
3. Security and Data Privacy
3.1 CLOUDESIRE Security. Without limiting Section 10 or your obligations under Section 4.2, we will implement reasonable and appropriate measures designed to help you secure Your Content against accidental or unlawful loss, access or disclosure.
4. Your Responsibilities
4.1 Your Content. You are solely responsible for the development, content, operation, maintenance, and use of Your Content. Your Applications are part of Your Content. For example, you are solely responsible for:
(a) the technical operation of Your Content, including ensuring that calls you make to any Service are compatible with then-current APIs for that Service;
(b) compliance of Your Content with the Acceptable Use Policy, the other Policies, and the law;
(c) any claims relating to Your Content; and
(d) properly handling and processing notices sent to you (or any of your affiliates) by any person claiming that You violate such person’s rights, including notices pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
4.2 Other Security and Backup. You are responsible for properly configuring and using the Service Offerings and taking your own steps to maintain appropriate security, protection and backup of Your Content, which may include the use of encryption technology to protect Your Content from unauthorized access and routine archiving Your Content. CLOUDESIRE log-in credentials and private keys generated by the Services are for your internal use only and you may not sell, transfer or sublicense them to any other entity or person, except that you may disclose your private key to your agents and subcontractors performing work on your behalf.
4.3 End User Violations. You will be deemed to have taken any action that you permit, assist or facilitate any person or entity to take related to this Agreement, Your Content or use of the Service Offerings. You are responsible for End Users’ use of Your Content and the Service Offerings. You will ensure that all End Users comply with your obligations under this Agreement and that the terms of your agreement with each End User are consistent with this Agreement. If you become aware of any violation of your obligations under this Agreement by an End User, you will immediately terminate such End User’s access to Your Content and the Service Offerings.
4.4 End User Support. You are responsible for providing customer service (if any) to End Users, relating to Your Content. We do not provide any support or services to End Users other than relating to our Service Offerings, unless we have a separate agreement with you or an End User obligating us to provide support or services.
4.5 Parity rates. The Seller grants and warrants to CLOUDESIRE that the commercial and economic terms of any Service offered under this Agreement will always be at least as favourable as the conditions applied for the similar services purchased in similar volume and for a comparable offer by any other Buyer across any other channel over the previous twelve (12) month period. Should Supplier apply more favourable commercial and economic conditions to any Buyer different from the ones available into the Marketplace, then the Seller shall provide the same pricing conditions within the Marketplace.
4.6 Content descriptions. Contents shall be properly described and documented within the products pages of the Marketplace. Sellers are not authorized to publish links to external websites and properties, if not agreed between the Seller and us. CLOUDESIRE reserve the right to not publish or suspend or delete Content for which the description could cause misunderstanding or result incomplete or fraudulent.
4.7 Sellers support to Buyers. It’s up to the Seller to fully support each Buyer in the most complete and professional way to understand and leverage its Content.
5. Fees and Payment
5.1 Service Fees. We calculate and bill fees and charges according to the pricing model proposed by the Seller. We may bill you more frequently for fees accrued if we suspect that your account is fraudulent or at risk of non-payment. You will pay us the applicable fees and charges for use of the Service Offerings as described on the Marketplace using one of the payment methods we support. All amounts payable under this Agreement will be made without setoff or counterclaim, and without any deduction or withholding. “Pay-per-use” (or “Consumption”) fees will be billed and charged at the end of each billing period to the End User, and the corresponding amount (net of fees agreed as described at 5.2) will be paid to Sellers only after we will have collected the relating gross amount from End Users. Fees and charges for any new Service or new feature of a Service will be effective when we post updated fees and charges on the Marketplace unless we expressly state otherwise in a notice. We may increase or add new fees and charges for any existing Services by giving you at least 30 days’ advance notice. We may charge you interest at the rate of 1.5% per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less) on all late payments.
5.2 Sales of Services by a Third Party Content Provider. This service is free of charge for the Seller. When a Buyer decides to buy a service provided by a Seller, following the pricing model decided by the given Seller, CLOUDESIRE will retain a fee to the Seller that will be agreed through a mutual agreement between CLOUDESIRE and each Seller before the publication of each Application on the Marketplace. The fee will span from 15% to 50% according to several conditions (e.g. catalogue visibility on “featured applications” areas of the Marketplace, type and entity of marketing campaigns made by CLOUDESIRE, type of support requested to CLOUDESIRE by the Seller, etc.).
5.3 Onboarding support to Third Party Content Provider. Even if the onboarding features of CLOUDESIRE are fully documented and accessible to any Seller and the whole procedure can be held by the Seller without any support from CLOUDESIRE, each Seller is free to ask for CLOUDESIRE support during the onboarding phase. Any assistance from us is subject to mutual agreement by the Seller and us.
5.4 Subscription billing-as-a-service. If not differently stated otherwise between each Seller and us, Sellers are obliged to install our “Try & Buy” widget on each of their product landing pages for all Contents also published and sold on the Marketplace.
5.5 Trials. All Sellers are free to grant to their End Users the capability to try each Content for free, before eventually buying it. The cost of the Cloud Resources needed to grant the trials to these End Users will be (a) invoiced to the Sellers by us, in case these trials will be provided through a single-tenant approach or (b) sustained by the Seller in case its provisioning is made through a multi-tenant console.
5.6 Amounts due to Sellers by CLOUDESIRE. Basing on the Services sold by the Marketplace, CLOUDESIRE will make available to each Seller within its own the Marketplace dashboard, every two (2) months, all the data needed by each Seller to invoice the due amount to Cloudesire. These data are usually composed by both incomes (e.g. the monthly subscription for each Service sold) and costs (e.g. the cloud infrastructure if made available by the Marketplace, the trials offered by the Seller to its End Users, the cloudesire fee). The payment will be made by Cloudesire to each Seller within thirty (30) days end of month, through bank transfer or Paypal deposit, after having received an invoice with all and only the data above mentioned.
5.7 Taxes. All fees and charges payable by you are exclusive of applicable taxes and duties, including VAT and applicable sales tax. You will provide us any information we reasonably request to determine whether we are obligated to collect VAT from you, including your VAT identification number. If you are legally entitled to an exemption from any sales, use, or similar transaction tax, you are responsible for providing us with legally-sufficient tax exemption certificates for each taxing jurisdiction. We will apply the tax exemption certificates to charges under your account occurring after the date we receive the tax exemption certificates. If any deduction or withholding is required by law, you will notify us and will pay us any additional amounts necessary to ensure that the net amount that we receive, after any deduction and withholding, equals the amount we would have received if no deduction or withholding had been required. Additionally, you will provide us with documentation showing that the withheld and deducted amounts have been paid to the relevant taxing authority.
6. Temporary Suspension
6.1 Generally. We may suspend your or any End User’s right to access or use any portion or all of the Service Offerings immediately upon notice to you if we determine:

(b) Termination for Cause.

(ii) By Us. We may also terminate this Agreement immediately upon notice to you (A) for cause, if any act or omission by you or any End User results in a suspension described in Section 6.1, (B) if our relationship with a third party partner who provides software or other technology we use to provide the Service Offerings expires, terminates or requires us to change the way we provide the software or other technology as part of the Services, (c) if we believe providing the Services could create a substantial economic or technical burden or material security risk for us, (D) in order to comply with the law or requests of governmental entities, or (E) if we determine use of the Service Offerings by you or any End Users or our provision of any of the Services to you or any End Users has become impractical or unfeasible for any legal or regulatory reason, (F) if we determine that Sellers are receiving too many trials from CLOUDESIRE without converting a reasonable amount of these trials in paying customers within the Marketplace.
