Effective: 1 December 2018
Thanks for being a customer of Aerofiler Inc. (“Aerofiler“). Please read these Terms of Service (“Terms“) carefully as they describe your rights and responsibilities regarding your use of Aerofiler’s services.
These Terms constitute a legally binding agreement between you and Aerofiler concerning the provision of Services to you and your access to and use of any Site. “Services” means the services offered by Aerofiler that are ordered by you on an Order Form or through a Site. An “Order Form” is an order form or similar document, duly executed by the parties, that references, incorporates, and is made under these Terms. “Site” means any Aerofiler website, including www.aerofiler.com, or other online channel managed by Aerofiler through which Aerofiler sells its services or makes its services available.
Aerofiler may provide a variety of Services, and some Services may have additional terms (“Service Terms“) that apply to them and are incorporated into and form a part of these Terms. A list of Service Terms is available at https://www.aerofiler.com/legal.
You indicate your agreement to these Terms by clicking on a button indicating your acceptance of them, by executing an Order Form, or by accessing or using the Services.
In these Terms, “you” refers to the entity or individual entering into these Terms with Aerofiler.
1.1. Provision of Services. Aerofiler will provide the Services to you in accordance with these Terms, which include any Order Forms and applicable Service Terms.
1.2. Order Forms. From time to time, the parties may enter into Order Forms under these Terms.
1.3. Changes to Services. Aerofiler provides many of its Services under the software-as-a-service model and continually seeks to improve and update them. You agree that Aerofiler may alter functionality from its Services at any time without prior notice, provided that Aerofiler provides you with reasonable prior written notice if such an alteration would result in a material decrease in core functionality used by Aerofiler’s general customer base.
2.1. Subscriptions. Each Service is sold by Aerofiler as a subscription unless otherwise specified or unless the nature of the Service requires otherwise. Services sold as subscriptions are subject to the following terms, unless otherwise agreed:
(a) Right to Use. Subject to these Terms, Aerofiler grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable worldwide right to access and use the Services during the subscription term.
(b) Subscription Term. Unless otherwise specified on an Order Form or a Site in connection with the subscription you purchase, the initial term of a subscription is 12 months. Subscriptions will automatically renew at the end of each subscription term for additional periods of 12 months, unless either party gives the other written notice of non-renewal at least 30 days before the end of the then-current subscription term. You may also be able to cancel automatic renewal at any time through your online account management page.
2.2. Free Trial Periods. Certain subscriptions may include a limited free trial period. You will not be billed for the subscription while the free trial is in progress. At the end of the free trial period, you will be billed and required to pay the applicable fees in order to continue using the subscription. If you elect not to pay the applicable fees, your subscription may be suspended, limited, terminated, or downgraded at Aerofiler’s discretion. The free trial period for a subscription is part of the subscription term and is not in addition to the subscription term.
3. Fees and Payment
3.1. Fees. You agree to pay Aerofiler all applicable fees for the Services specified in each Order Form or on the Site, as presented to you when purchasing a Service. Except as otherwise agreed or required by applicable law, payment obligations are non-cancelable and fees paid are non-refundable.
3.2. Payment. Where applicable, you will be billed using the billing method you have specified on your online account management page. If you have chosen to pay fees by credit card, you: (a) represent and warrant that you are authorized to use such credit card for such purpose and that credit card information you provide is correct, current, and valid; and (b) authorize Aerofiler to charge such credit card for any such fees.
3.3. Invoicing and Payment Terms. Unless otherwise agreed in an Order Form:
(a) fees for subscriptions are due in advance of the applicable Services being provided, subject to any different invoicing schedule and payment terms specified in an Order Form; and
(b) if the billing method we agree is by invoice, invoices are due for payment by you within 30 days of the invoice date.
3.4. Currency. Unless otherwise specified in an Order Form or on a Site in connection with the Services you purchase, all monetary amounts in these Terms are in United States dollars. You must pay fees in the same currency as they are billed.
3.5. Overdue Payments. Aerofiler may charge you interest on overdue payments at the rate of 1.0% per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if lower) on the amount overdue. If any amount owed by you is overdue by 30 days or more, Aerofiler may accelerate all of your unpaid fee obligations under these Terms and limit functionality or suspend provision of Services to you until such amounts are paid in full.
3.6. Taxes. All amounts payable by you under these Terms are exclusive of any applicable taxes, levies, duties, or similar governmental assessments of any nature (including value-added, sales, use, and withholding taxes, but excluding taxes based on Aerofiler’s income, property, or employees) (“Taxes“) that may arise in connection with your purchases under these Terms. If any such Taxes arise, you will pay them in addition to all other amounts payable under these Terms, unless you provide Aerofiler with a valid tax exemption certificate or other documentary proof, issued by an appropriate taxing authority, that no tax should be charged. If you are required by law to withhold any Taxes from your payments to Aerofiler, you must provide Aerofiler with an official tax receipt or other appropriate documentation to support such payments.

4.4. Third Party Requests. If Aerofiler receives a request from a third party for records related to your use of the Services (including Customer Data) (“Third Party Request“), Aerofiler will provide details of such Third Party Request to you if Aerofiler is permitted to do so. In such a case, you agree that you, and not Aerofiler, are responsible for responding to the Third Party Request, provided that Aerofiler will assist you to the extent that you cannot otherwise respond to the request without Aerofiler’s help. Third Party Requests include search warrants, subpoenas, and other forms of legal process.
4.5. Suspension of Services. Aerofiler may limit or suspend the Services from time to time for maintenance or security purposes at its discretion (for example, to perform scheduled maintenance), or if we reasonably believe that the Services are being used by you or your End Users in violation of applicable law or in breach of these Terms). If the circumstances reasonably permit, Aerofiler will give you reasonable advance notice of any limitation or suspension. There may be some situations, such as security emergencies, where it is not practicable for Aerofiler to give such advance notice. Aerofiler will use commercially reasonable efforts to narrow the scope and duration of the limitation or suspension as is needed to resolve the issue that prompted such action.

10.2. Indemnification Procedures. A party seeking indemnification under these Terms will promptly notify the other party of the claim and reasonably cooperate with the other party in defending the claim. If permitted by applicable law, the indemnifying party will have full control and authority over the defence, except that: (a) any settlement requiring the indemnified party to admit liability, perform any act or to pay any money will require that indemnified party’s prior written consent (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed); and (b) the indemnified party may join in the defense with its own counsel at its own expense. The indemnities in these Terms are a party’s sole and exclusive remedy under these Terms for violations by the other party of a third party’s Intellectual Property Rights, and are still subject to any limitations of liability set forth in these Terms.
11.1. Exclusion of Certain Liability. To the extent permitted by applicable law, in no event will Aerofiler be liable under or in connection with these Terms for: (a) any indirect, consequential, special, incidental, punitive, or exemplary damages, under any theory of law, including tort, or (b) loss of use, data, business, revenues, or profits (in each case whether direct or indirect), even if the party knew or should have known that such damages were possible, and even if a remedy fails of its essential purpose.
11.2. Liability Cap. To the extent permitted by applicable law, Aerofiler’s aggregate liability arising out of or in connection with these Terms for all claims of any kind will not exceed the amounts paid by you to Aerofiler under these Terms during the 12 months prior to the event giving rise to the liability; provided, however, that the foregoing limitation of liability will not apply to liability for: (a) fraud or wilful misconduct, (b) death or personal injury, or (c) infringement of a third party’s Intellectual Property Rights.
12.1. Amendments. These Terms may only be amended if authorized representatives of each party agree in a signed writing.

Any other attempt to transfer or assign is void.
12.3. Counterparts. These Terms may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which will be deemed to be an original and all of which taken together will comprise a single instrument.
12.4. Dispute Resolution. Aerofiler would like to address all disputes without resorting to formal legal proceedings. Before filing a claim, each party agrees to try to resolve a dispute by formally notifying the other party in writing that it wishes to negotiate a dispute. If a dispute is not resolved within 30 days of such notice, either party may start legal action or proceedings. Except if prohibited by applicable law, in relation to any legal action or proceedings to enforce these Terms or arising out of or in connection with these Terms, each party irrevocably submits to the exclusive venue and personal jurisdiction of the state courts located in San Mateo County, California, and the federal courts located in the Northern District of California. In any legal proceeding instituted by a party to enforce these Terms, the prevailing party shall have the right to collect from the other party the reasonable costs and expenses incurred by the prevailing party in conducting the legal proceeding, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and disbursements, and court costs.
12.5. Entire Agreement. These Terms (including any documents incorporated herein by reference, and any Order Form), constitute the entire agreement between you and Aerofiler and they supersede any other prior or contemporaneous agreements or terms and conditions, written or oral, concerning their subject matter. Any terms appearing on a purchase order or similar document issued by you do not apply to the Services, do not override or form a part of these Terms, and are void.
12.6. Force Majeure. Neither party will be liable for inadequate performance to the extent caused by a condition (for example, natural disaster, act of war or terrorism, riot, or governmental action) that was beyond the party’s reasonable control.
12.7. Governing Law. These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of California, without giving effect to any of its conflict of laws principles.
12.8. Interpretation. The use of the words “includes,” “including,” “such as,” “for example,” and similar terms are deemed not to limit what else might be included.
12.9. No Waiver. A party’s failure or delay to enforce a provision under these Terms is not a waiver of its right to do so later.

(c) Notices to You. Notices to you may be sent to the email address associated with your designated account administrator (or primary administrator, if applicable) for the relevant Service (“Account Admin“).
