Please read these terms and conditions (these "Terms") carefully as they form a contractbetween you ("Subscriber" or "you") and Axway, Inc., with its principal place of business at 6811 E. Mayo Boulevard, Suite 400, Phoenix, Arizona 85054, USA, along with its parent company and their respective subsidiaries as applicable (“Axway", we", "us", or "our”) that governs your access and on-demand use of: (i) the Axway Marketplace and Platform, and the software and service components made available to you via this interface, marketplace.axway.com, platform.axway.com, platform.appcelerator.com, or similar platforms or interfaces made available by Axway and which include copies of or links to these terms and conditions; ii) the Axway Appcelerator Platform provided by Axway for the development and publishing of mobile applications (“Applications”), (iii) storage and processing of runtime code, files, materials, data, text, audio, video, images or other content (collectively, "Content") on the Axway Cloud or Axway Appcelerator Cloud (“Cloud”); and (iv) Application analytics ((i)-(iv) collectively the "Platform"). These Terms govern your use of the Platform and all services and software provided therein, except to the extent all or any portion of the Platform: (a) is the subject of a separate written signed agreement between you and Axway; or (b) is governed by a third party licensor’s terms and conditions. Capitalized terms have the definitions in Section 2 or as otherwise indicated below.

By registering or using the Platform you agree to be bound by these Terms (including your corresponding subscription plan as identified in your ordering documentation or interface) and any modifications to these Terms that may be made from time to time. If you are using the Platform on behalf of an organization or more than one organization, you are agreeing to these Terms for each such organization and warranting and representing to Axway that you have the authority to bind each such organization to these Terms (in which event, "you" and "your" will refer to that organization as well as you) unless such organization(s) has a separate paid contract in effect with us, in which event the terms of that contract will govern your use of the Platform. You may use the Platform only in compliance with these Terms and only if you have the power to form a contract with Axway 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 PLATFORM. Should you have any questions concerning these Terms, please contact your Axway sales representative or renewal representative.

Please note that Axway does not provide warranties for the use of the Marketplace itself or use of the interface/ordering components of the Platform; individual software and services you may license as a result of your use of the Marketplace or Platform may contain warranties. This contract also limits our liability to you. See Sections 17 (NO WARRANTY) and 19 (LIMITATION OF LIABILITY) of these Terms for details. Any software warranties are solely provided by the specific end user license agreement, if any, associated with a particular software download.

1. MODIFICATION OF TERMS.

We reserve the right to revise these Terms from time to time. We will date and post the most current version of these Terms on the Platform website. Any changes will be effective upon posting the revised version of these Terms (or such later effective date as may be indicated at the top of the revised Terms). If in our sole discretion we deem a revision to these Terms to be material, we will notify you via the Platform and/or by email to the email address associated with your account. Therefore, we encourage you to check the date of these Terms whenever you visit the Platform to see if these Terms have been updated. Your continued access or use of any portion of the Platform constitutes your acceptance of such changes. If you don't agree to any of the changes, we're not obligated to keep providing the Platform, and you must cancel and stop using the Platform.

Despite the foregoing, no such modifications to these Terms shall modify or contradict the terms of any third-party license agreement controlling the licensed product at issue, as described herein.

You will pay the Fees in the currency Axway quoted for your account. Axway reserves the right to change the quoted currency at any time.

We'll notify you in advance, either through the Platform or to the email address you have most recently provided to us, if we change the price of the Platform. If there's a specific length and price for your Platform offer already in effect, that price will remain in force for that time.

If your Platform is on a period basis (for example, monthly) with no specific length, we'll notify you of any price change at least 30 days in advance. If you don't agree to these changes, you must cancel and stop using the Platform no later than thirty (30) days prior to the conclusion of your current payment term, whether monthly, yearly, or otherwise. If you cancel, your Platform ends at the end of your current Platform period or payment period.
