If you are using the Services on behalf of an organization, you are agreeing to these Terms for that organization and promising to Aris4Autism that you have the authority to bind that organization to these Terms (in which event, the terms “Customer”, “you” and “your” will refer to that organization).
Customer may use the Services only in compliance with these Terms. You agree to these Terms only if you have the power to form a contract with Aris4Autism and are not barred under any applicable laws from doing so. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS, YOU MUST NOT USE THE SERVICES. Should you have any questions concerning these Terms, please contact us at info@Aris4Autism.com.
1. GOVERNING DOCUMENTS
In addition, Addendums setting forth additional terms and conditions specific to a Customer’s geographic location (or particular services you may have purchased) may also apply. You agree to review such Service Addendums and agree that any such Service Addendums applicable to you are binding and incorporated herein by reference. The term “Service Agreement” as used herein shall include any applicable Service Addendums.
In the event of any conflict or ambiguity between any of the documents that form the Service Agreement, said conflict or ambiguity shall be resolved by giving precedence to the documents in the following order:
1) Customer Order
2) Possible Data Processing Agreement
3) Any applicable Service Addendums
4) Terms of Service and
5) other Additional Agreements in their order number.
2. TERM, TERMINATION, AND RETENTION OF DATA
2.1. Term. Unless the duration of the Services subscription is otherwise stated in Customer’s Order, Customer’s subscription to use the Services shall be for either three (3) or six (6) month period depending on your choice and shall automatically renew for successive terms equal to the initial term unless and until terminated by either party upon written notice at least forty-five (45) days prior to the expiration of the then-current term. The renewed time will be automatically billed once a month in equal payments. Customer termination notices must be made in writing via email to info@Aris4Autism.com. In no event will Customer be entitled to reimbursement of any fees paid for a subscription term.
2.2. Termination for Material Breach. Unless otherwise stated in Customer’s Order, either Party may terminate the Service Agreement during the Initial Term or any Renewal Term if the other Party materially breaches any term of the Service Agreement and does not cure the breach within thirty (30) days of receipt of written notice of such breach. For purposes of the Service Agreement, non-payment within sixty (60) days of the date of an invoice shall be a material breach. If Aris4Autism terminates the Service Agreement due to a material breach by Customer, the full balance of Customer’s then applicable Term of the Services Agreement subscription (the monthly total recurring billing amount multiplied by the then remaining unpaid months of the then applicable Term) shall immediately be due and payable. Nothing herein shall alter Aris4Autism’s right to suspend Customer’s Service pursuant to these Terms for non-payment, and no additional time provided by a Party shall serve as a waiver of the right to thereafter terminate without additional notice.
2.3. Suspension or Termination of Service for Violation of Law. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 2, Aris4Autism may immediately suspend or terminate the Service without notice to Customer and remove applicable Customer Content (as defined below) if Aris4Autism in good faith believes that, as part of using the Service, Customer may have violated a law, or any third-party rights. Aris4Autism will provide Customer written notice of such action and shall be responsible for ensuring all Customer Content is recoverable for export purposes.
2.4. Data Retention Post Termination. The Customer is solely responsible for exporting all Customer Content prior to the termination of the Service Agreement (or last billing cycle). Customer can export data in various formats. Customer can seek support for data export prior to termination from Aris4Autism support staff, subject to any support costs. Aris4Autism will retain all Customer Content for a minimum of ninety (90) days after the termination of the Service Agreement, including those accounts terminated due to non-payment or inactivity, as a safeguard in case the Customer requires more time to export all Customer Content. This ninety (90) day is referred to herein as the “Data Retention Period”. Customers will be responsible during this Data Retention Period to make any requests for additional data exports in writing to Aris4Autism at info@Aris4Autism.com, as account access may be restricted during the Data Retention Period due to termination of the Services. After the Data Retention Period expires, Aris4Autism may remove or delete any Customer Content, including Customer Content that contains protected health information, and Aris4Autism shall not be responsible for any damage caused by said removal. It is the Customer’s responsibility to comply with all privacy, data retention and other laws in its use of the Services, including Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”) and any other healthcare or other regulations relating to medical records, including without limitation any required time period relating to the retaining records. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Aris4Autism will not retain Customer Content longer than needed to provide the Services and satisfy other reasonable business purposes and limitations, such as: (i) complying with record retention obligations imposed on Aris4Autism under applicable law or our other; (ii) resolving disputes or enforcing our agreements; or (iii) for the purposes of backup, recovery, contingency planning or business continuity planning provided that such Customer Content, to the extent not permanently deleted or overwritten in the ordinary course of business, is not accessed except as required for backup, recovery, contingency planning or business continuity purposes.
