CLOUD INSTANT BACKUP RECOVERY TERMS AND CONDITIONS


Cloud Instant Backup Recovery (Cloud IBR) will provide the Subscriber with access to the Cloud IBR software (Services) on a Subscription basis, in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in these Terms and Conditions.

  1. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES
    Cloud IBR provides the End-User Customer and/or Reseller (collectively called the Subscriber) with access to the Cloud IBR software which enables them to recover their Veeam server backups to a secure bare metal cloud infrastructure.

2.TERM OF AGREEMENT; SERVICES
The Effective Date shall be the date that the Subscriber subscribes to this Service. These Terms and Conditions shall remain in effect for so long as the Subscriber has an active subscription. The initial subscription Term is for one (1) year, unless otherwise agreed to separately in the form or a Purchase Order (PO) or Services Agreement or Statement of Work (SOW), and the parties agree that either party may elect not to renew the Services for an additional Term, provided such party opts not to renew the Service from within the Cloud IBR software via the Do Not Renew button, prior to the annual renewal date of the then current Term. The failure to terminate the Service prior to the renewal of the term shall result in an automatic renewal for one (1) year, under the same terms and conditions as the initial Term.

3.SUPPORT

The Cloud IBR software includes support for any issues/bugs within the platform and any issues with the Bare Metal Cloud (BMC) infrastructure. Direct End-User Customers (EUC) of Cloud IBR shall receive support directly from the Cloud IBR support team and will create support tickets via the “Open A Support Ticket” option within the Cloud IBR SaaS platform. Resellers agree to provide all first level support to their respective EUC’s. Reseller’s EUC’s who create support tickets via the “Open A Support Ticket” option within the Cloud IBR SaaS platform will generate a support ticket to their respective Reseller. Reseller’s may open a ticket directly with Cloud IBR should they determine the issue is related to the above supported items and is not a Veeam backup or restore related issue. If an EUC or Reseller requires support for the Veeam Software product, they may purchase hourly consulting services from Cloud IBR for troubleshooting or onboarding at a rate of $250.00USD/hour or contact their Reseller or Veeam Software for support. Platinum subscription EUC’s shall receive a dedicated 24/7 phone number for support during an emergency Disaster recovery declaration and will receive direct support from the Cloud IBR support team to bypass the above support protocol.


4.CHARGES
Upon the Effective Date, Cloud IBR shall charge the annual subscription fee to the Subscriber’s credit card provided by the Subscriber during registration. At any time during your paid subscription or free trial, you may click the ‘Do Not Renew’ button on the Manage Membership page if you do not wish to have your annual subscription automatically renew or free trial become billable. If you do not click the ‘Do Not Renew’ button prior to your annual renewal or free trial expiration, your annual renewal fee will automatically be billed to your credit card on the annual renewal date and free trials will convert to an annual subscription and automatically be billed to your credit card when the free trial expires. Free trial accounts will automatically have their credit card charged for the initial annual Silver Subscription at the then current market price published on the Cloud IBR website.

PhoenixNAP shall bill Subscriber’s credit card for hourly usage of the PhoenixNAP Bare Metal Cloud during recovery tests and during an actual Disaster recovery. Fees range from $0.08 (8 cents) to a few dollars per hour per physical server plus $0.12 (12 cents) per hour per TB of storage and ancillary fees for IP addresses, Windows Server licensing, etc. You can use our DR Testing Fees Calculator to estimate your hourly usage fees and view the hourly pricing for different hardware platforms here. You can also see two monthly usage statement examples for actual Cloud IBR recovery environments here and here.

5.TAXES
The prices applicable to the services do not include sales, use, excise, value added, or similar taxes. Consequently, in addition to the specified prices, the amount of any present or future sales, use, excise, value added or other similar tax applicable to the sale of services, specifically excluding taxes on the gross income of Cloud IBR, shall be paid by Subscriber or in lieu thereof, Subscriber shall provide Cloud IBR with a tax-exemption certificate acceptable to the taxing authorities.

6.AVAILABILITY
In the event of a Disaster (as defined below) Subscriber will have use of the Cloud IBR software. A “Disaster” shall herein be defined as any act of God, civil disorder, flood, tornado, hurricane, fire, earthquake, explosion, sabotage or any other catastrophic unplanned event or any condition that renders Subscriber unable to use its office facilities or the equipment situated there for its intended computer processing and business related purposes. Furthermore, Subscriber may, in its reasonable judgment, treat a forecasted imminent Disaster as a Disaster. Platinum Subscribers may provide notification of a Disaster verbally and shall specify the nature of the Disaster that has occurred and affected services needed, and the name of another designated representative of Subscriber who can verify the Disaster. Subscriber shall provide written confirmation, if available, of the relevant information, as reasonably requested by Cloud IBR. Immediately following verbal notification by Subscriber, Cloud IBR shall supply the Services.

7.UNANTICIPATED CHANGES
Subscriber is responsible for maintaining its production environment in good working order, including taking preventative measures against malware and data corruption. It is understood that changes to the Subscriber’s software or production environment caused by malware, viruses, or other computer contaminants may adversely impact upon the operating system and may result in data corruption. In the event that the Subscriber’s data or system is infected by a virus or subject to malware rendering Cloud IBR unable to perform its duties, the Subscriber agrees to fully indemnify and pay Cloud IBR for any and all loss or costs incurred to correct the modification to Cloud IBR’s Services. These indemnification and reimbursement apply to all reasonable costs incurred by Cloud IBR to address and correct the condition caused by ineffective or corrupt software and production environment provided by the Subscriber. Each party hereby agrees to hold harmless the other party for any claim or damage, whether actual, incidental, or consequential, of any nature whatsoever, resulting from any malfunction, corruption, or modification of the software or any other intellectual property supplied by such party to the other party.

8.FORCE MAJEURE
Cloud IBR will not be liable for failure to deliver or delay in delivering or performing services provided hereunder that are the result of force majeure, including but not limited to, “Acts of God”, war, the failure of third parties or any causes beyond its reasonable control. Subscriber will be notified in writing of such a force majeure and will have the option either to extend the term of the Subscription for the period of the event at no additional charge for such extension (unless such event results from an act or omission of Subscriber, in which case such remedies shall not apply).

9.LIMITATION OF LIABILITIES AND REMEDIES
Cloud IBR represents and warrants that when used as instructed, the Cloud IBR software shall perform in material conformity with its applicable documentation, and that in the course of performing its functionality, the Cloud IBR shall act in all applicable legal obligations, and without breach of an obligation or duty imposed by law or contractual agreement to any third party.

Failure of Subscriber to pay when due any payment of charges or fees during the term of the Subscription, or failure by any party substantially to perform, keep or observe any other term, provision, warranty or condition contained in these Terms and Conditions, unless otherwise excused by the terms of these Terms and Conditions, shall constitute an event of default.
