ASKCODY BETA TERMS
SUPPLEMENTAL TERMS FOR ASKCODY BETA SERVICES
Thank you for participating in the AskCody Beta Program. These AskCody Beta Program Terms (“Terms”) apply to and govern your participation in any or all of public or private beta programs (“Beta Program) and use of AskCody’s Beta Services (“Beta Services”). In order to participate in a Beta Program or use Beta Services, you must agree to these terms.
Beta refers to all services that are not yet released to General Availability, and these may include Preview, Early Access etc. The naming of the services provided under these terms may change, but the Beta Terms are general terms governing this type of early access to not yet released products.
We have provided abbreviated language to help you navigate some of the legalese below.
1. Introduction to terms for AskCody Beta Services
Beta features and services may include previews, beta or other pre-release features, services, or software offered by AskCody for optional evaluation. Beta Services are licensed to you as part of your agreement with AskCody.
The AskCody Beta Program provides updates and new features in the form of preview programs. AskCody rolls out previews in phases to give invited customers and users the opportunity to evaluate and understand new features before it becomes part of the standard service offered by AskCody in General Availability for all Customers.
You acknowledge and agree that the Beta Service is recommended for internal use only and is designed for primary use in the development and testing of the service, prior to making the Service General Available to all. The Beta Service, by its nature, is provided to you as an alpha, beta, experimental, untested or not fully-tested version. You assume all risks associated with use of the Beta Services. The Beta Service may experience delays or failures of functionality, may be incomplete and may contain errors, defects, flaws, connectivity issues, bugs or other inaccuracies that could cause periods of downtime/unavailability, failures, and/or the disclosure, corruption and/or loss of data or information.
In an event of a conflict between the supplemental terms for Beta Programs and our general Terms of Service, these supplemental terms apply. Support as provided accordingly to the agreed Service Level Agreement is also not available in Beta Programs.
Data Processing and Use of Service: The AskCody Information Security Policies and Procedures apply to Beta Programs as those implemented for General Availability.
2. Eligibility and Participation
We only allow invited customers to participate in Beta and require that customers be in good standing (e.g. up to date billing, not currently in suspension), while having an active subscription, meaning a subscription has not been cancelled nor terminated.
By agreeing to these terms for use of the AskCody Beta Services by an organization, you are agreeing on behalf of that organization. Therefore, you must have the authority to bind that organization to these terms, otherwise you must not sign up for the Beta Services, nor accept these terms.
3. Beta Services
Beta Services may range from wholly new product line or modules, to changes to existing product features. By accepting these Beta Terms, we’re giving you a license to use the Beta Services.
The Beta Services may be a separate, stand-alone service, accessible apart from the currently available AskCody Services (as defined in the Terms of Service) or may be a feature or functionality for existing AskCody Services. A description of the Beta Service may be provided prior to or at the time you use a Beta Service, or if we make changes to the Beta Service. By agreeing to and complying with these Terms we grant you a non-exclusive, revocable, non-transferable, limited license to use the Beta Services.
4. The Beta Services Are as Is
Beta features by their very nature are meant for testing, which means that they may not work as expected, may have errors, or may cause unintended behavior.
You understand that we’re not responsible for any issues or problems caused by the Beta Service. We have no obligation to provide any kind of support for the Beta Services
