Description of Service
AODocs is an online document management solution that comprises several modules, as may be purchased by You through an Order Form, such as a Web application located at https://aodocs.altirnao.com, a Chrome extension, migration tools, business connectors, a document retention module, tools to bulk upload or bulk update documents, and any such additional module(s) that Altirnao may release to its customers from time to time. The Order Form may also specify, to the extent applicable, optional modules developed by third party providers and made available to You separate from the Service (“Third Party Integrated Modules”).
Certain enhancements to the Service made generally available at no cost to all subscribing customers of the Service will be made available to Customer at no additional charge. However, the availability of some new enhancements to the Service (including additional module(s)) may require the payment of additional fees, and Altirnao will determine at its sole discretion whether access to any other such new enhancements will require an additional fee.
The Service is provided subject to these Terms and solely for Your internal business purposes. You may connect to the Service using any Internet browser supported by the Service.
The Service may be offered for Google Workspace customers (“AODocs for Google Workspace”) or independently from Google Workspace (“AODocs Multi-Cloud”). In the absence of express specification of “AODocs Multi-Cloud” in an Order Form, the Service provided is AODocs for Google Workspace (and in such case the applicable workspace domain shall be mentioned in the Order Form). For the avoidance of doubt, except as expressly specified as applying to AODocs for Google Workspace or to AODocs Multi-Cloud, all the provisions of these Terms of Service apply to both cases.
In the case of AODocs for Google Workspace (i) the Service requires one or more Google Workspace account(s), with enough Google Drive storage quota to accommodate for the use of the Service, that will be the owner(s) of all files stored and managed by the Service (ii) the Service stores all the files that it stores and manages for You in the Google Drive account(s) that You will assign to AODocs when You deploy AODocs.

You understand and acknowledge that, in the case of AODocs Multi-Cloud, if Your Content is hosted on AODocs’ own cloud file storage, the Order Form may include limitations in particular in terms of storage space.
In the case of AODocs for Google Workspace, You also understand and agree that content you store through your use of the Service will be made available to Google as part of Google providing the Google Workspace service. All fees associated with the foregoing shall be paid by You.
In the case of AODocs Multi-Cloud, should you decide not to store your Content in AODocs’ own cloud file storage, You also understand and agree that all fees associated with such storage shall be paid by You and AODocs shall have no liability towards You or any third party should the Service be interrupted or disrupted due to non-payment of such fees or disruptions affecting your cloud file storage service.

You will be provided notice of any such modification by electronic mail or by the publishing of such on the website http://www.aodocs.com/terms-of-service.

Use of the Service
Access to Service: Access to and use of the Service is only available to the Customer and the end users (“Users”) to whom Customer has purchased individual user licenses and granted access, and limited to the components that are included in the licenses Customer has purchased.
Upon registration with Altirnao, Customer will specify the email address of an account (the "Account"), which will be granted access to the Service.

Customer agrees not to share its password with anyone other than Users, let anyone else access its password or do anything else that might jeopardize the security of its password. Customer agrees to notify Altirnao if Customer’s password is lost, stolen or disclosed to an unauthorized third party, if there is any unauthorized use of its password or Account or any User’s account, or if Customer learns of any other breach of security in relation to the Service. Customer is solely responsible for any and all activities that occur through the use of Customer’s Account or Users’ accounts. Altirnao has no control over the administration operations carried out by Customer on Customer’s Google Workspacedomain or or Customer’s own cloud file storage.

Customer is at all times fully responsible and liable for all acts and omissions by Users to whom Customer has granted access to the Service (and, if applicable, Third Party Offerings and/or Third Party Integrated Modules) and Customer agrees to indemnify Altirnao for all claims and losses related to any such acts and/or omissions.
Each user license ordered by Customer is specific to the email address of only one User. Once a User has accessed the Service, such User’s license shall be deemed utilized until expiration of the applicable license term. Customer acknowledges that if the number of User Licenses ordered by Customer is insufficient to provide access to the Service to all Users, Users without License might be denied access to the Service. The Service shall be deemed accessed by User if and when (i) User accesses any functionality of the Service through any User interface or any add-on plug-in connected to the Service through the Service’s APIs, or (ii) User accesses a Google Drive file managed by the Service (in the case of AODocs for Google Workspace), or (iii) User accesses a document (regardless of where such document is located) held in any system that originates, directly or indirectly, from a document control process managed by the Service.
Altirnao reserves the right to terminate unpaid AODocs accounts and AODocs accounts that are inactive for a continuous period of ninety (90) days. In case of AODocs account with more than one User, if at least one of the Users is active, the AODocs account will not be considered inactive. Altirnao will provide Customer with prior notice of such termination.
