These Terms will remain in effect during the Subscription Term, unless varied in accordance with section 11 (How we can change these Terms) or 17.8 (Amendments) or terminated in accordance with these Terms.
2.2 Acceptance. These Terms do not have to be signed in order to be binding.

You may place an order for the Service by accepting the Proposal Document provided by us or our Reseller via completing the form on our Sign Up page (a link to which will be provided on the Proposal), or via any other electronic means made available to you by us or our Reseller (where applicable to you) from time to time (“Place an Order”).
3. Subscription Term and renewal
3.1 Initial Subscription Term. The Service is offered on an annual subscription basis. Your initial subscription commences on the Effective Date and continues for a period of 12 months (unless an alternative period is specified on the Proposal Document) following the first calendar day of the month immediately after the Effective Date (“Initial Subscription Term”), unless terminated earlier in accordance with these Terms.
3.2 Automatic Renewal. Your subscription will automatically renew for another 12 months (“Renewal Term”) at the end of the Initial Subscription Term or then current Renewal Term (as applicable) unless either party gives notice of non-renewal at least 21 days before the expiry of the Initial Subscription Term or then current Renewal Term (as applicable). All renewals are subject to us continuing to offer the Service and the fees for each Renewal Term will be calculated at the then-current List Price based on the applicable Tier for your Organisation at that time and any Optional Modules you have subscribed for. Where a party has given notice of non-renewal in accordance with this section, your subscription will expire at the end of the then current Initial Subscription Term or Renewal Term (as applicable).
3.3 Changes to List Price. We will notify you in writing, including any change to the List Price, of an upcoming renewal no less than 30 days before the expiry of the applicable Subscription Term.
4. Our Services and Assistance
4.1 Provision of Service. Subject to your payment of the Fees and the remainder of these Terms, we will make the Service (including any Optional Modules for which you have subscribed, as specified on the Proposal Document) available for you to access and use for the appropriate Tier specified on the Proposal Document during the Subscription Term for your internal business purposes. Your right to access and use the Service is non-exclusive, non-transferable and non-sublicensable.
4.2 Service Level. Our target is a minimum of 99.0% Uptime for the Service during any calendar month, and we will use our reasonable efforts to achieve this, however we cannot guarantee it. If the Service becomes unavailable we will work as quickly as reasonable possible to restore Availability, however depending on the issue this may take some time. We will let you know as soon as practicable if Availability will not be restored for longer than 2 days. “Uptime” means the number of hours in a calendar month when the Service is Available. “Available” means the Service is available to be accessed via our website, excluding any unavailability caused by (i) you; (ii) third parties; (iii) system maintenance; or (iv) a Force Majeure Event.
4.3 Acknowledgement. You acknowledge that the Service:
a. is dependent on third-party services, including but not limited to email providers, cloud hosting services, and telecommunications services;
b. is hosted, managed and supported by us using servers running on a third party cloud hosting platform, and that no ‘back-end’ access to the Service is available to you unless expressly agreed in writing, or accessed by through use of an API provided by us;
c. can only be accessed using the internet or other connection to our Website, and is not available ‘locally’ from a User’s system;
d. may provide links to third party websites or other Third Party Content where we do not control or have any responsibility for that Third Party Content; and
e. allows you to provide links to third party websites that we do not control or have any responsibility over.
4.4 Changes to the Service. You acknowledge that as a hosted software-as-a-service solution, we may make improvements or other changes to the Service from time to time and update the associated documentation. While we would not typically make changes that would intentionally cause you to lose access to material Organisation Data or fundamentally decrease the utility of the Service to you (“Detrimental Change”), if we do so during your Subscription Term then you may terminate your subscription by notice to us and receive a pro-rata refund of the Subscription Fee for the remaining unused portion of the prepaid Subscription Term. To exercise this right, you must give us notice of your termination from your Primary Administrator within 30 days of us making the Detrimental Change.
4.5 New Features. We may introduce new features or functionality within the Service with corresponding additional fees (“New Features”) by giving you written notice of their availability and applicability. Any such New Feature will be an Optional Module, and your right to access and use it will be subject to payment of the corresponding additional fee based on our then current List Price. You acknowledge that we provide no commitment to introduce New Features and you agree that your order for the Service, and obligation to pay the Fees, is not contingent on any future features or functionality or any oral or written comments in public promotional material in relation to future features or functionality.
4.6 Restricting access. We may limit or restrict access to the Service from time to time as we consider necessary, including (but not limited to):
a. Users: we may restrict access if Users do not comply with these Terms or our Policies;

4.7 Discontinuation of Service. We can discontinue the Service or any portion or feature of it for any reason at any time. Where we do this at the end of your Initial Subscription Term or Renewal Term (as applicable), this will be without any liability to you and your renewal for the subsequent Renewal Term (where we have not discontinued the Service in full) will be for the Service without the discontinued portion or feature. Where we discontinue the Service in full during your Subscription Term, section 14.3 (Termination for convenience by us and discontinuing the Service) will apply. Where we discontinue a portion or feature of the Service during your Subscription Term and this fundamentally decreases the utility of the Service to you, this will be a Detrimental Change and section 4.4 (Changes to the Service) will apply.
4.8 Support. We will provide you with technical support during Business Hours for any Product Bugs you encounter in using the Service or where you require assistance in how to perform a task using the Service. To request our technical support, please email or call us. We will endeavour to respond to your request as soon as reasonably practicable. We may provide our technical support to you via email, phone, screen share or in person on site at our discretion. You may also provide us Feedback, such as feature requests or suggestions for enhancements or improvements to the Service, in the same manner as you request support, however we may not respond to you or act upon all such requests or suggestions.

If we terminate for your material breach you will not receive any refund of prepaid Fees.
14.2 Termination for convenience by you.
