ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS
Please read these terms and conditions (this “Agreement” or “Terms of Service”) carefully. By clicking “accepted and agreed to”, Customer agrees to be bound by the terms of this Agreement. This Agreement is effective when Customer clicks “Accepted and Agreed To” (the “Effective Date”).
The services offered by Alveo under the Terms of Service include various products and services to help you manage and optimize profitability of online retail stores (the “Services”). Any new products, services, features or tools which are added to the current Services shall be also subject to the Terms of Service. You can review the current version of the Terms of Service at any time at https://cdn.alveo.io/legal/terms.txt.
This Agreement is effective as of the Effective Date and shall remain in force for the duration of the Subscription (the “Initial Term”). Upon expiration of the Initial Term, this Agreement will automatically renew on a monthly or yearly basis (each a “Renewal Term”, and the Initial Term and all Renewal Terms collectively, the "Term") until terminated by Customer following the cancellation policy set out in Section 5, or until the Agreement is terminated by Alveo pursuant to Section 11. Customer may not terminate this Agreement prior to the expiration of the Initial Term. Following expiration of the Initial Term, Alveo may increase the fees payable by Customer under this Agreement, upon not less than thirty (30) days' written notice (the “Increase notice”). If the Customer doesn’t decline within five (5) days following the delivery of the Increase notice, the Customer is deemed to have accepted the increase.
PAYMENT & FEES
Customer agrees to pay to Alveo any fees for each Service that Customer purchases, uses, or subscribes to in accordance with the pricing and payment terms presented by Alveo for that Service. Where applicable, you will be billed using the billing method you select through your account management page. Fees paid by you are non-refundable, except when required by law.
Some of our Services are billed on a subscription basis (“Subscriptions”). Customer will be billed on a recurring basis, including without limitation, monthly and annual plans (each period is called a “Billing cycle”) when Customer signs up for the Services and thirty (30) days prior to the Renewal Term. Your Subscription will renew at the end of each Billing cycle, five (5) days after the delivery of the Increase notice, if applicable, unless you cancel auto-renewal following the “Cancellation” policy below.
You may cancel auto-renewal on your Subscription by contacting us at [email protected]
at least thirty (30) days prior to the end of the Initial Term or then-current Renewal Term, in which case your Subscription will continue until the end of that Billing cycle before terminating. You may cancel auto-renewal on your Subscription within thirty (30) days after the Subscription starts if you do not want it to renew.

Alveo owns a copyright in the selection, coordination, arrangement and enhancement of such content, as well as in the content original to it. Customer may not modify, publish, transmit, participate in the transfer or sale, create derivative works, or in any way exploit, any of the content, in whole or in part.

In the event of any permitted copying, redistribution or publication of copyrighted material, no changes in or deletion of author attribution, trademark legend or copyright notice shall be made.
The Services may allow you to submit, post, display or upload content including but not limited to text, files and other materials (together the “Content”). You retain ownership of your Content, but by uploading or entering it onto any software, program or platform provided as part of the Services, you are granting us a license to use, copy, reproduce, process, adapt, publish, transmit, host and display that Content for the purpose of (i) providing you the Services and associated support; and (ii) analyzing and improving the operation of the Services. We reserve the right to remove Content on any software, program or platform provided as part of the Services that Alveo, in its sole discretion, finds to be in violation of the provisions hereof or otherwise objectionable.
Alveo and Customer shall each retain in confidence all information received from the other party pursuant to or in connection with this Agreement that the disclosing party identifies as being proprietary and/or confidential or that, by the nature of the circumstances surrounding the disclosure, ought in good faith to be treated as proprietary and/or confidential ("Confidential Information"), and will make no use of such Confidential Information except as necessary to fulfill their respective obligations under the terms and during the term of this Agreement. Alveo may collect some Confidential Information from Customer which includes, without limitation, information about Customer’s business such as its order stream, inventory stream, information about your company’s customers such as their name, address, payment information stream. Either party may disclose such information in confidence to its immediate legal and financial consultants as required in the ordinary course of that party's business. The restrictions set forth above will not apply to (i) information previously known to the receiving party without reference to the disclosing party's Confidential Information, (ii) information which is or becomes publicly known through no wrongful act of the receiving party, (iii) information that is independently developed by either of the parties, or (iv) information required to be disclosed pursuant to applicable law (altogether the “Exceptions”). The Exceptions shall also not prevent Alveo from using Customer's name and/or trademark(s) in its marketing and training materials or Customer data on an aggregate, anonymized basis.
TERMINATION & SUSPENSION
In the event of breach of this Agreement by Customer, Alveo may terminate this Agreement by giving Customer written notice specifying the nature of the breach in reasonable detail and Alveo’s intention to terminate (a "Termination Notice"). If the breach has not been cured within the period ending thirty (30) days following delivery of the Termination Notice, then this Agreement shall automatically terminate. If Customer is in breach of any of the following provisions of this Agreement: license restrictions of Section 7, the payment terms of Section 4, or the confidentiality restrictions of Section 10, then Alveo may immediately suspend or terminate Customer's use of the Services. Any such suspension shall not relieve Customer of any of its obligations under this Agreement or entitle Customer to any refund of payments previously made.
Alveo may suspend Customer’s access to the Services immediately without notice if Alveo, in its sole discretion, believes: (1) such suspension is required by law; (2) Customer has breached this Agreement; or (3) there is a security or privacy risk to Customer. Any suspension of Customer’s access to the Services will not limit or waive Alveo’s rights to terminate this Agreement or Customer’s access to the Services.
Upon termination of this Agreement, Customer shall discontinue its use of the Services. Notwithstanding the previous sentence, termination of this Agreement by Alveo shall not limit Customer's obligation to pay all of the applicable fees, nor restrict Alveo from pursuing any other remedies available to it, including injunctive relief. Sections 4, 7, 8-10, 12 and 14-19 shall survive termination of this Agreement, along with any other provisions that are intended by their terms to survive.
Customer agrees that following termination of Customer’s account and/or use of the Services, Alveo may immediately deactivate Customer’s account and delete Customer data. Customer further agrees that Alveo shall not be liable to Customer nor to any third party for any termination of Customer access to the Services or deletion of Customer data.
