Effective as of 31 January 2018
This Agreement (the “Agreement”) applies to BooleBox Individual and BooleBox Business Customers only. The Agreement is entered by and between Boole Server S.r.l., an Italian company, its parents and affiliates (collectively “Boole Server”, “we”, “us”, or “our”), and the party ("Customer") in order to create and use a premium account (“Premium Account”). This Agreement governs access to and use of the BooleBox Premium Accounts, client software ("Software") and services (together, the "Services" or "BooleBox Premium"). Boole Server and Customer may be referred to collectively as the “parties,” or individually as a “party.” By clicking "I Agree” or otherwise using the Services, Customer agrees to this Agreement. If Customer agrees to this Agreement for the use of the Services by an organization, Customer is agreeing to this Agreement on behalf of that organization. In this case, any reference to Customer will be intended as referred to that organization. For anything not expressly regulated by this Agreement, the terms and conditions of the End-User Service & License Agreement, which constitute the general conditions ("General Conditions") adopted by Boole Server s.r.l. with respect to the use of the Services and the Software shall apply.
1.1 Access to Services.
The Customer (or an authorized person if the Customer is an entity) will serve as the administrator of the Account (the “Administrator”). The Administrator will be permitted to assign the number of BooleBox Premium licenses (each, a “Premium License”) which have been purchased according to this Agreement. Any party to whom a Premium License has been granted shall be referred to herein as an “End User”. The End Users shall be authorized to access and use BooleBox Premium, subject to and in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
1.2 Service Plans.
Customers with access to BooleBox Premium under Section 1.1 of this Agreement shall be individuals and organizations utilizing either BooleBox Individual, or BooleBox Business storage plans (the “Plans”). BooleBox Individual Accounts consist of one (1) Premium License, and BooleBox Business Accounts are provisioned with five (5) minimum Premium Licenses, which will be maintained and assigned by the Administrator. More End Users may be added in accordance with Section 6.1 of this Agreement.
1.3 Facilities and Data Storage.
At a minimum, Boole Server will use industry standard protections to secure data stored by Customer in accordance with the Services (“Customer Data”). Customer understands and agrees that Boole Server may store, process, or transfer Customer Data at a location chosen at its sole discretion and that such location may be outside the country of Customer’s domicile. Customers will have the ability to create unique encryption keys (“Personal Keys”) for Customer Data within the Account. Boole Server will not have access to these Personal Keys, and will not store or maintain these Personal Keys. For the avoidance of doubt, the term “Customer Data” as used in this Agreement, and the term “Your Data” as used in the Terms of Service shall be read as the same term and shall have the same meaning throughout both documents.
1.4 Modifications to the Services.
Boole Server reserves the right to update the Services at any time, or add or subtract features from the Services at any time; provided, however, that if Boole Server makes any modifications to the Services which will materially affect Customer’s ability to use the Services, Boole Server will provide notification of such changes by sending notice to the email address associated with Customer’s Account.
1.5 Software and License.
Use of some features of the Services may require Customer to download Software. Provided that Customer remains in compliance with the terms of this Agreement, we grant Customer a limited, non-exclusive, worldwide, non-transferrable, revocable license to use the Software, solely to the extent necessary to access the Services. Consequently, Customer hereby grants to Boole Server a limited, non-exclusive, worldwide, non-transferrable, revocable at any time license to copy, store and otherwise use the Customer Data solely to the extent necessary to provide the Services.
1.6 Privacy Information.
2. CUSTOMER OBLIGATIONS.
2.1 Compliance with Terms of Service
Customer is solely responsible for use of the Services by its End Users under the Premium Licenses granted by Customer. Customers expressly agree to use the Services in accordance with the Terms of Service, the terms of which are incorporated herein by reference. Customer agrees to obtain from End Users any and all consents necessary to allow Boole Server to provide the Services. Article 1381 of the Italian Civil Code applies.
2.2 Customer Administration of Services.
The Administrator may assign Premium Licenses, and all related Services, to End Users, at the Administrator’s discretion, in accordance with the number of Premium Licenses purchased by the Customer. The Administrator may also at any time revoke Premium Licenses from End Users to whom the Administrator has previously assigned such Premium Licenses. In the event of a revocation of a Premium License, the Customer acknowledges that the End User to whom such Premium License was assigned will lose the benefit of the Premium License, and access to their Account may be blocked, unless, within sixty (60 days, the Premium License is re-assigned to such End User. Boole Server expressly disclaims any and all responsibility and liability related to the internal management or administration of the Account, and the assignment and revocation of Premium Licenses, and Customer shall be solely responsible for any and all damages, and expressly assumes all liability, which does or may result from or in connection with same. In addition, Customer is solely responsible for: (i) maintaining the confidentiality of passwords and Personal Keys; (ii) managing the allocation of Premium Licenses (for Business Accounts), and (iii) ensuring that the use of the Services by End Users complies with this Agreement.
2.3 Unauthorized Use.
Customer will prevent any and all unauthorized access to or use of the Services. The Services may not be used by anyone under the age of 13. Customer will ensure it will not allow any person under the age of 13 to use or access the services. In the event that Customer does allow a person under the age of 13 to access the services, Customer will promptly notify us of such unauthorized access, and will take any and all steps necessary to stop and/or prevent such access.
2.4 Restricted Use.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, Customer will not, and will not permit any End User or third party to: (a) lease, rent, sell, or resell the Services; (b) reverse engineer, decompile, modify, alter, tamper with, disassemble, or create any derivative works of any software used to provide the Services, (c) use the Services in such a matter that use of or failure of the Services could lead to physical damage, death, or injury to a Customer, End User, or third party, and (d) use or access the Services in any manner which expressly violates the Use Policy found in the Terms of Service.
2.5 Compliance with Laws.
Customer is responsible for complying with any and all laws governing its use of the Services, and ensuring that End Users comply with same. Article 1381 of the Italian Civil Code applies.
2.6 Third Party Requests.
Customer is solely responsible for responding to any and all “Third Party Requests.” For the avoidance of doubt, the term “Third Party Requests” shall mean a request from third party for information related to use of the Services by a Customer or End User. If we receive such Third Party Requests, we shall transmit such requests to the Customer within a commercially reasonable time. If a Customer fails to respond to a Third Party Request, we may only respond to such request to the extent allowed by this Agreement.
3. THIRD PARTY SERVICES.
We may, at our sole discretion, use third party software to provide the Services. In this event, Customer accepts and acknowledges that Customer’s access to the Services may be conditioned on the acceptance of terms and conditions advanced by said third party. Customer also accepts and acknowledges that such third party terms and conditions shall not be binding on this Agreement in the event that such terms and conditions conflict with a provision of this Agreement. Accordingly, Boole Server (a) expressly disclaims any and all liability for any and all acts and omissions of a third party, and (b) Boole Server does not warrant, guarantee, or support the functionality of any software provided by a third party, except as expressly stated by Boole Server in writing.
4.1 Suspension of Customer and End User Accounts.
If an End User or Customer violates this Agreement, including the provisions of the Terms of Service, or uses the Services in a manner which Boole Server , in its sole discretion, reasonably believes will cause it to incur liability, then Boole Server may (a) immediately suspend the Customer’s use of the Services as a whole, or the use of the Services by a specific End User or End Users, or (b) at Boole Server’s discretion, notify Customer of the violation, and offer Customer the opportunity to cure the violation within a reasonable period of time before suspending the Customer’s use of the Services, or the use of the Services by a specific End User. For the avoidance of doubt, “reasonable period of time” shall be made on a case-by-case basis at the sole discretion of Boole Server. Further, in the event of a “Security Emergency”, Boole Server will immediately suspend the Customer’s and all End Users’ use of the Services, until the Security Emergency has been resolved to the satisfaction of Boole Server. For the avoidance of doubt, the term “Security Emergency” shall mean (i) use of the Services which actually disrupts or damages or may disrupt or damage the Services, other Customers’ use of the Services, or the infrastructure used to provide the Services, and (ii) unauthorized third-party access to the Services.
4.2 Suspension for Non-Payment of Fees.
We reserve the right to suspend Customer Accounts for up to fifteen (15) days for non-payment of fees pursuant to Section 6.1 of this Agreement (the “Non-Payment Suspension Period”). During such Non-Payment Suspension Period Customers and End Users may access Customer Data, but shall be unable to use other functionality of the Services until payment is received by Boole Server. During such Non-Payment Suspension Period, Customers with Business Accounts may, at its discretion, downgrade to a “free” version of the Services. If Customer fails to pay the amounts owed, and fails to downgrade the Customer’s Account as described above, the Customer’s Account will be disabled at the end of the Non-Payment Suspension Period. In such event, we shall maintain Customer Data in the Account for twelve (12) months. If Customer wishes to restore their account during such twelve (12) month period, Customer may do so by paying (i) the amounts owed for the use of the Account during the Non-Payment Suspension Period, and (ii) the amounts owed for the month in which the Account is being re-activated. If Customer has not restored its Account at the end of such twelve (12) month period, Customer’s Account shall be terminated and we may delete all Customer Data in such Account.
5. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS.
5.1 Boole Server Intellectual Property Rights.
Except as expressly provided in this Agreement and in the General Conditions, this Agreement does not grant Customer any rights to intellectual property which is the sole and exclusive property of Boole Server (“Boole Server IP”). For the avoidance of doubt, the term “Boole Server IP” means any and all protection we have or may have with respect to the Software and Services under the laws of patent, trademark, trade dress, trade secret, copyright, and moral rights as such may come to exist, now or in the future, according to the laws of Italy or foreign nations.
5.2 Customer Intellectual Property Rights.
Except as expressly provided in this Agreement, and as reasonably necessary to provide the Services, nothing in this agreement grants us any intellectual property rights in and to the Customer Data. Customer expressly agrees to allow third parties designated by Boole Server the same intellectual property rights as Boole Server to the extent such is necessary to offer the Services.
5.3 Use of Customer Suggestions.
We may, from time to time, and in our sole discretion, solicit suggestions, comments, and feedback from Customers and End Users (“Customer Suggestions”).

(b) Upgrades. A Customer with a Free Account shall pay a fee of Euros 9,90 plus VAT to upgrade to a Individual Account, or Euros 55 plus VAT to upgrade to a Business Account, and thereafter the Customer will pay the applicable monthly fees provided above.

Customer agrees to pay to Boole Server an additional fee of Eleven Euros plus VAT (€11 EUR) per month per additional Premium License. When a new Premium License is added, the additional Premium License fee shall be prorated for the month in which it was purchased, based on the date on which the additional Premium License is purchased. However, and for the avoidance of doubt, if an additional Premium License is revoked, the Customer shall be responsible for the full Premium License fee for the month in which such termination occurred.

Customer is responsible for furnishing us with complete and accurate billing information, and for maintaining such information in the event of any change thereto. Customer agrees to pay and authorizes us to charge, via Customer’s selected payment method, all fees due under this Agreement.
