The Services are defined as your access to the Website and the information you receive from itopia through the Website (the “Services”).
This Agreement sets out the legally binding terms for your use of the Services and may be modified by itopia from time to time in its sole discretion. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to change or modify portions of these Terms of Service at any time without prior notice. You may read a current, effective copy of these Terms of Service at any time by selecting the “Terms of Service” link on the Site. Please review these Terms of Service periodically. Any use of the Services after such date shall constitute your acceptance of such revised Terms of Service. If any change to these Terms of Service is not acceptable to you, your sole remedy is to cease accessing, browsing and otherwise using the Services.
The Services are solely for access and use by Authorized Users (as defined below). By using the Services, you represent and warrant that you (a) have the right, authority, and capacity to enter into this Agreement and (b) will abide by all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement. If you have agreed to become a paying customer for the Services, then your eligibility to use the Services shall be contingent on your continued compliance with the terms of the applicable purchase agreement and this Agreement. If you have not agreed to become a paying customer for the Services, your use of the Website is still subject to this Agreement.
itopia shall authorize individual employees of Customer as designated by Customer from time to time (each an “Authorized User”), who will have access to the Services. You will also be asked to choose a username and a password for each Authorized User. itopia may change any username and password for any Authorized User at any time, with notice to Customer following any such change. Each Authorized User must use his or her own username and password and shall not disclose them to anyone else. Customer shall immediately notify itopia of any unauthorized disclosure. Customer is responsible for (a) each Authorized User’s compliance with this Agreement and (b) any employee of Customer, any person to whom Customer has given access to the Services and any person who gains access to Customer’s Services as a result of your failure to use reasonable security precautions, even if such use was not authorized by you.
This Agreement will remain in full force and effect while itopia offers the Services and/or you are a Customer using the Services pursuant to the term selected during the Services Registration Process. After this Agreement is terminated, the following provisions of this Agreement will remain in effect: Sections 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, and any other Section that by its nature survives termination.
Availability of and Access to Services.
itopia will attempt to provide continuous availability and access to Services. In the event that we are unable to provide access for reasons beyond our control, we will communicate the reasons for the outage and expected duration of the outage clearly and explicitly to the Customer. These outages could be due to third parties that the Service depends on, such as, but not limited to Google Cloud, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure or other third party service providers. Also while we will make commercially reasonable attempts to backup all Customer data, in the event of recovery from disaster, the Customer may have to reconfigure the Service to get it back to the state it was in before the outage. itopia is hosted by a third party hosting service provider. itopia and its third party service providers have implemented and maintain commercially reasonable technical and organizational security measures designed to meet the following objectives: (a) ensure the security and confidentiality of Customer data in itopia’ and/or its third party service providers’ custody and control; (b) protect against anticipated threats or hazards to the security or integrity of Customer data; (c) protect against unauthorized access to or use of Customer data; (d) encrypt Customer’s Content and data during transmission by itopia and its third party service providers and when being uploaded by Customer for use in connection with the Services using an https connection; and (e) ensure that itopia’ return or disposal of Customer data is performed in a manner consistent with the foregoing. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those measures to access your data for improper purposes. You acknowledge that there are risks inherent in Internet connectivity that could result in the loss of your privacy, confidential information and property.

ITOPIA SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY TO CUSTOMER UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, IT BEING ACKNOWLEDGED AND AGREED THAT ITOPIA’S PROVISION OF THE SERVICES IS PROVIDED SOLELY FOR THE CONVENIENCE OF CUSTOMER. IF THE FOREGOING LIMITATION OF LIABILITY IS FOUND TO BE UNENFORCEABLE, ITOPIA’S LIABILITY TO CUSTOMER FOR ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING FROM ITS USE OF THE SERVICES OR UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, AND REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF THE ACTION, WILL AT ALL TIMES BE LIMITED TO THE GREATER OF (1) ANY AMOUNT PAID BY CUSTOMER TO ITOPIA FOR THE SERVICES DURING THE ONE (1) MONTH PRECEDING SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION; AND (2) FIFTY U.S. DOLLARS (US$50). EXCEPT FOR BREACH OF THE RESTRICTIONS IN SECTION 5 AND IN RELATION TO THE INDEMNITY IN SECTION 13, CUSTOMER’S LIABILITY TO ITOPIA FOR BREACH OF THIS AGREEMENT SHALL NOT EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID OR AGREED TO BE PAID BY CUSTOMER TO ITOPIA FOR THE SERVICES DURING THE TWELVE (12) MONTHS PRECEDING SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY CONTAINED HEREIN, THIS AGREEMENT SHALL NOT LIMIT OR EXCLUDE EITHER PARTY’S LIABILITY FOR GROSS NEGLIGENCE OR INTENTIONAL MISCONDUCT OF A PARTY OR ITS AGENTS OR EMPLOYEES, OR FOR DEATH OR PERSONAL INJURY. THE PARTIES AGREE THAT THE LIMITATIONS ON AND EXCLUSIONS OF LIABILITY IN THIS AGREEMENT WERE FREELY NEGOTIATED AND ARE AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE BARGAIN, IN THAT THE SERVICES WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN AVAILABLE FOR THE SAME PRICE AND UNDER THE SAME TERMS AND CONDITIONS HAD SUCH LIMITATIONS ON AND EXCLUSIONS OF LIABILITY NOT BEEN INCLUDED IN THIS AGREEMENT.
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES OR THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. ACCORDINGLY, SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS SET FORTH ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

This Agreement may be updated or amended by itopia at any time, with or without notice to Customer and Customer’s continued use of the Services shall constitute Customer’s acceptance of the updated or amended Agreement. Customer may not assign all or any part of its rights or obligations hereunder without the consent of itopia. Notwithstanding any other provisions herein, no party will be deemed as a third-party beneficiary to this Agreement. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision will be changed and interpreted to accomplish the objectives to the greatest extent possible under any applicable law and the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect. The failure of itopia to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. Nonperformance by either party shall be excused to the extent that performance is rendered impossible by strike, acts of God, natural disaster, Internet outages, computer viruses, governmental acts or restrictions, failure of suppliers, or any other reason where failure to perform is beyond the reasonable control of the nonperforming party. The section titles in this Agreement are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. You are responsible for all taxes, other than taxes levied on itopia’ income. Services fees do not include any applicable taxes. If itopia is required to pay any sales, use, goods & services, value added, or other taxes in relation to your purchase, those taxes will be billed to and paid by you.
All Intellectual Property owned by itopia shall remain the exclusive property of itopia. Customer agrees that itopia will retain sole ownership of all Intellectual Property even if enhancements suggested or requested by Customer become incorporated into the Services.
