This Amberflo Platform Agreement (“APA”) governs any usage-based billing, metering and related services (“Services”) that the organization or entity signing below (the “You” or “Your”) purchase directly from Amberflo.io, Inc. (“Amberflo”). This APA, the Order Form, and any other incorporated terms comprise the complete understanding between the parties on the subject matter (“Agreement”).
1.1 Ordering. During the term set forth in the Order Form, Your personnel (“Users”) may access and use the Amberflo’s platform to use the usage-based billing and metering services identified in the Order Form (“Services”) only for Your internal business purposes. You will pay the fees for the Services in accordance with the payment terms stated in the Order Form. Except as otherwise stated in this APA or the Order Form (if applicable), Your purchases are non-cancelable and payment for Services is non-refundable. You will pay Amberflo for all applicable sales tax, VAT, GST, use tax, or similar transaction taxes imposed on Your purchase of Services, unless You provide Amberflo with a valid tax exemption certificate. You will have no liability for taxes that are imposed on Amberflo that are measured by Amberflo’s net or gross income.
1.2 The Services. Amberflo will provide Users with access to the Services in accordance with the Agreement. Depending on what You purchase, Services generally include access to the Amberflo’s hosted “Platform” that displays Your metering and/or billing activity. You, or Amberflo at Your direction, will provision an “Administrator” account for Users. Administrators may authorize and deactivate a User’s access to the Services. You will immediately notify Amberflo if You know or reasonably suspect that any account credentials have been compromised or of any unauthorized use of Your account. Depending on the types of access rights the Administrator grants Users, Users may be able to subscribe or unsubscribe for Services and delete, copy, or view Your Data. Amberflo is not responsible for the internal management or administration of Your use of the Services. Amberflo at any time may update or modify the Services provided it will not materially decrease functionality of the Services.
1.3 Restrictions. The Platform may only be accessed and used by Your Users. You are responsible for any the use of the Service by Your Users and their compliance with this Agreement. You, on behalf of itself and Your Users, agree not to: (1) use the Service other than as authorized in the Agreement; (2) modify, decompile, decode, or reverse engineer the Service, (3) create derivative works based on the Service; (4) interfere with or disrupt the integrity or performance of the Service, (5) use the Service or any other Amberflo Confidential Information to develop, commercialize, license or sell any product, service or technology that could, directly or indirectly, compete with the Service, or (6) deactivate, impair, or circumvent any security or authentication measures of the Service. You will not provide access to the Services to any third party, resell or sublicense it, except that You may allow Your Affiliates to access and use the Services if You are fully liable for Your Affiliates’ use of the Services and compliance with the Agreement (each such Affiliate also “You” for the purpose of this Agreement). Without undue delay, You will notify Amberflo upon learning of any unauthorized use of the Services. "Affiliate" means any entity that directly or indirectly controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with the subject entity where “control” means direct or indirect ownership or control of more than 50% of the voting interests of the subject entity.

In the event of any loss or corruption of Your Data, Amberflo shall use commercially reasonable efforts to restore Your Data that has been lost or corrupted from the latest backup of Your Data.
