We may change these terms from time to time by updating the copy of them that is on our website. We shall give you notice on the website of any change to the terms and the date from which the change is to take effect. The change to the terms will take effect from the date specified, but will not affect your agreement with us as it existed prior to that date. If you continue to use the Services after being notified of a change in the terms and after the date by which the change is stated to take effect, you will be treated as having agreed to the change.

By registering for the Services and in agreeing to these terms, you represent that you are doing so for the purposes of your business, and that you are not acting for any purpose outside your business.
We provide Services relating to the management of applications, code, data and related material (all of which together will be referred to as "Applications") in the cloud. An outline description of the purposes for which our Services may be used is set out below. We may agree to provide some or all of these Services to you, as appropriate.
You provide us with access to the code repository in relation to each relevant Application. Our Services may be used to analyse it and to recommend appropriate ways to deploy the Application.
Our Services may be used to deploy your Application to the cloud. You choose your cloud service provider (which may be you or a third party), who provides the server, network, storage capacity and related facilities to which the Application is deployed (the "Deployment Environment").
Our Services may be used to arrange for the backup of your Application or Data at intervals and to an environment (your "Backup Environment") chosen by you. Where we are providing Services which include the management by us of the backup of your Application or Data ("Managed Backup Services"), we may provide the Backup Environment to which the relevant Application is backed up based on different factors determined by us based on a various factors including but not limited to the location of your chosen data center and the age or the size of your backup. Our Managed Backup Service may delete your oldest backups after 5 years unless we have agreed with you on a different arrangement.
Our Services may be used to implement load balancing and process management within your Deployment Environment. Where agreed with you, our Services may involve the scaling of the deployment of your Application within your Deployment Environment up or down as required in order to manage load and capacity effectively.
Our Services may be used to implement agreed levels of firewall protection and DDoS protection in relation to your Deployment Environment.
Our Services may be used to monitor use of CPU, memory, storage and network on each relevant server or load balancer within your Deployment Environment and alert you when relevant events occur (for example, if the Application does not respond at appropriate intervals).
You may contact us for any reason in relation to the Services via email@example.com.
Except to the extent expressly agreed otherwise by us in writing, we shall not be responsible (whether as part of providing the Services or otherwise) for:
- The provision or functioning of your Deployment Environment or your Backup Environment (unless we have agreed to provide your Backup Environment as part of the provision of Managed Backup Services). This is your responsibility or that of any relevant third party service provider.
- The security of your Application, Deployment Environment or Backup Requirement except to the extent of deploying the levels of protection agreed with you.

We shall charge you monthly in arrears for Services provided by us. Charges shall be in accordance with our pricing policy which can be found at www.cloud66.com (or as such URL that we may provide or notify you of from time to time).
For all Services purchased following the expiry of the 14 day free trial period, we will charge your credit card on a monthly basis (or such other interval as notified to you) in arrears for the Services that you choose to subscribe to.
