Customer is an individual or an organization that uses services listed in Paragraph 4 as part of, in relation to, or to the direct benefit of their profession, trade, or business activity.
6. These General Terms of Service provide details about the rights and obligations of the Customer and the Provider, pertaining to the Services listed in Paragraph 4.
6. For the purposes of these General Terms of Service, the following terms shall be defined:
memoQ server: a software product offered by Provider that provides for collaborative translation by sharing resources and managing translation projects. memoQ server is licensed software, and is usually installed on a server computer owned or at least operated by the Customer and not Provider. A memoQ server may be operated by Provider in two cases:
a) if the Customer subscribes to a memoQ cloud server, or
b) if the Customer orders hosting services from Provider, so that they do not have to operate their memoQ server in their own infrastructure
Composition and changes of version numbers: A downloaded and installed copy of the memoQ product has three version numbers (for example, 9.1.2). In this number:
a) 9 is the major version,
b) 1 is the minor version
c) 2 is the build number.
memoQ package: A compressed file to be downloaded from the https://www.memoq.com website that contains the installation files of a memoQ product.
Update: A new memoQ package where only the build number increases; the new package contains fixes for problems only.
Upgrade: A new memoQ package where the minor or the major version number increases; the new package contains new functionality.
Feature release: A new memoQ package where either the minor version number or both the major and minor version number increase. The new memoQ package contains one or more new features (complex groups of new functionalities).
Maintenance: The availability to Customer of new versions of the memoQ products that Provider releases during the validity period of the support and maintenance service.
Compatible version: A version of the memoQ desktop software that is able to connect a memoQ server of specific version for specific purposes. A project manager’s copy of the memoQ desktop software is a compatible version only if the major version and the minor version is exactly the same as those of the server.
Supported version: A version of the memoQ software that receives updates and fixes from memoQ, and that memoQ provides helpdesk services for. If a version is not supported, updates are not issued and helpdesk is not provided for it, even if the user has a valid SMA. Unless expressly stated otherwise, the latest minor version of the two latest major versions are supported. At the time of writing, the two supported versions are 8.7 and 9.1 (memoQ 2015).
Down-level version: A version of the memoQ software that is no longer supported through updates, fixes, or helpdesk. Every version that is not a supported version counts as a down-level version.
Maintenance window: A time period when a memoQ cloud server or a hosted memoQ server undergoes planned maintenance, upgrade, or update. These activities may cause planned downtime, which shall not count as lack of availability, and shall not be counted against the general availability level of the Service.
Business continuity: Infrastructure, processes, and measures that ensure that business is not lost because of the loss of data or functionality, or the malfunction or unavailability of equipment, network, or software.
8. An individual agreement for a Service (hereinafter referred to as a Service Agreement) may be entered into
a) as a distance contract, through electronic means, over the website of the Provider, or
b) implicitly, by agreement expressed by conduct, or
c) between attending Parties, in writing, at the seat or branch office of the Provider.
Rules for entering into agreement for specific services are detailed in the corresponding Chapter about each service.
In case of services that require advance payment, the agreement is entered into implicitly and automatically, by Customer making payment for a service period.
9. Registration requirement: As a prerequisite of entering into a Service agreement regarding a specific Service, Customer must register at Provider’s website, using their e-mail address. Provider may verify the e-mail address of Customer by sending an activation link in e-mail to Customer. In this case, Customer must activate their registration through this link. In order to enter into a Service Agreement, Provider may require the following details from Customer:
a) Name of individual/contact person
b) Billing name/name of legal entity
c) Billing address
e) Customer’s registration number
f) Identification of the court or authority registering Customer
g) Tax number or EU VAT ID
h) Bank account details
i) Billing currency
j) Contact e-mail address (which may be different from the registration e-mail address)
k) Telephone number
To identify Service Agreements, Provider shall assign a serial number, or a unique name, or a unique web address (URL) to each Agreement. The contents of each Service Agreement are available through Provider’s website, under Customer’s account information.
10. Customer represents and warrants that they specify a valid e-mail address that will be reachable and active throughout the term of the Agreement. In the event of a change in contact details, Customer shall promptly notify Provider. Customer acknowledges and accepts that Provider may verify the validity of the contact details with other means. If Customer becomes unreachable through the main contact details for longer than 30 calendar days, Provider may terminate the Agreement and all related services with immediate effect, without refunding any of the service fees.
11. The governing language of these General Terms of Service and the specific Service Agreements is English.
12. Definition of Service: The Service agreed herein consists of the following components:
12.1. memoQ cloud server is a Software as a Service solution offerred by Provider (hereinafter referred to as ‘memoQ cloud server’); one running instance of the memoQ server software, owned and operated by Provider, for the benefit and the exclusive use of Customer.
12.2. Network access to the memoQ cloud server: Provider shall allow Customer to access this memoQ server instance from the memoQ desktop program (hereinafter: ‘Desktop Software’), from a Resources API connection, from an optional WS API connection, or from a web browser. The parameters and limitations of the connection are described in Paragraph 14.2.
12.3. The version of the memoQ server software in the Service shall always be the latest release of the memoQ server product. In the event that Provider releases a new version or a new build, the Service shall be upgraded automatically within 1 (one) to 14 (fourteen) days after the public release. In case of delay, Provider shall inform Customer about the reasons and expected upgrade schedule.
a) Upgrade is mandatory: Provider cannot keep Customer’s memoQ cloud server software in an earlier version. As a result, Customer or users designated by Customer may be required to upgrade their copies of the memoQ desktop program. Provider shall not guarantee the availability of the memoQ cloud server service from earlier versions of the memoQ desktop program.
b) When an upgrade or and update is released, Provider will perform the upgrade during the designated daily maintenance time of the memoQ cloud server. Maintenance times are part of the individual Service Agreement, and can be viewed or changed through Provider’s website, under Customer’s account information.
12.4. Limited functionality. Customer acknowledges and accepts that the memoQ desktop program offers more functionality for project management and server administration than the web-based interface of the Service. Further, Customer also acknowledges and accepts that, compared to a stand-alone licensed (hosted or on-premises) memoQ server, certain parts of functionality may not be available on a memoQ cloud server.
12.5. Desktop software license rental: From the memoQ server instance operated to Customer’s benefit, Customer or users designated by Customer may subscribe to one or more licenses of the project manager edition of the memoQ desktop program, and one or more licenses of the translator pro edition of the memoQ desktop program.
a) Provider reserves the right to limit the number of licenses that Customer may subscribe to. Customer may subscribe for (more precisely, rent) a specific number of licenses, for a specific subscription fee. The actual maximum number of licenses depends on the subscription plan, as chosen by Customer. Customer acknowledges that using a higher number of licenses may incur higher subscription fees. License counts and usage information are available to Customer at all times through Provider’s website, under Customer’s account information.
b) For each project manager license, Customer may use one or more free web licenses. Provider reserves the right to limit the number of web licenses that are available to Customer overall or per each project manager license.
c) Customer shall rent at least one memoQ project manager license as part of the Service.
d) The licenses shall remain active as long as the Customer’s agreement is in effect and the Service is not cancelled by either the Customer or the Provider.
12.6. Restriction of the amount of data: The storage used by Customer’s memoQ cloud server shall not exceed 5 (five) gigabytes. A higher storage allowance may be negotiated with Provider.
13. Subscribing to the service. Payment of the service fee: A memoQ cloud server subscription is available at a monthly subscription fee. The monthly subscription fee is available to Customer at all times through Provider’s website, under Customer’s account information.
13.1. One-month trial period
a) The first calendar month of the Service – the trial – is free of charge.
b) Customer may cancel the Service during the first calendar month at any point without specifying a reason.
c) If Customer does not cancel the Service during the first month, Provider shall send notifications requiring payment to change the trial Service into a regular subscription.
d) If Customer does not subscribe to the Service until or on the last day of the trial period, Provider will suspend the Service at the end of the trial month. Provider shall maintain the corresponding memoQ cloud server, in a suspended state, for a period of 30 (thirty) calendar days, during which Customer may reactivate the memoQ cloud server by paying the subscription fee for the Service.
e) If Customer does not subscribe to the Service until or on the last day of the suspension period, Provider will terminate the Service and erase Customer’s data. After the termination of the trial Service, Customer may not enroll for another trial period.
f) Customer may not enroll for a trial month of the Service more than once. The same person or organization using a different e-mail address is considered the same Customer. Circumventing this limitation by using different e-mail addresses shall be considered as a breach of these General Terms of Service and may result in the immediate termination of the subscription, as set forth in Paragraph 75.1.
13.2. Customer may pay the subscription fees for the Service using a credit card. Customer’s account is charged automatically on the first day of each monthly period, on the same day of the month as the subscription was created. If, instead of regular monthly payment, Customer chooses to pay the subscription fees at once for a period of six months or longer, bank transfer or PayPal are also accepted. This shall be agreed and managed between the Customer and the Provider, separately.
13.3. If automatic payment fails, both Customer and Provider are notified by the memoq.com portal. Customer shall have a grace period of 5 (five) calendar days to make the payment manually. Should Customer fail to make the payment manually within such 5-day period, the Service shall be suspended until the payment is confirmed. If the payment is not confirmed after the said 5 days, Provider will keep the Service suspended. Provider shall keep the memoQ cloud server in a suspended state for 30 (thirty) more calendar days, during which the Customer may ask Provider to resume the Service, after confirming payment. When the Service is resumed, Provider shall not charge for the period during which the Service was not active.
14. Access to the service:
a) From a compatible version of the memoQ desktop program to the network access point (memoQ server URL) as indicated at Provider’s website, under Customer’s account information. The required licenses for the memoQ desktop program are distributed by the memoQ cloud server. Customer may also use some of their own existing licenses to access the Service. Provider may impose a connection limit, which restricts the number of users connecting to the Service at a time. Users running the memoQ desktop program with a project manager license must always use the current latest version of the memoQ desktop program.
b) From a web browser to the network access point of the Service as indicated at Provider’s website, under Customer’s account information. Provider may impose a connection limit, which restricts the number of users connecting to the Service at a time.
c) From a custom-made client application using the Web Services Application Programming Interface (WSAPI) of the Service, at a connection point indicated at Provider’s website, under Customer’s account information. To use the WSAPI, Customer must request Provider to add the WSAPI to their subscription plan. The addition will result in a higher subscription fee. Provider needs to enable the WSAPI manually: the WSAPI becomes available within 2 (two) working days from Customer’s request.
d) From a custom-made client application or from an extension to a translation tool, using the Resources API on the memoQ cloud server, at a connection point indicated at Provider’s website, under Customer’s account information. The Resources API is subject to the same connection limit as web-based access: the number of client applications connecting at the same time may not exceed five times the project manager licenses rented as part of the subscription.
e) Customer may not access the memoQ cloud server by any other means than listed above.
14.2. Network access parameters of the memoQ cloud server: Customer acknowledges that Provider offers the connection to the Service at the technical parameters listed below. If Customer experiences technical difficulties connecting to the Service, they may need to open or otherwise configure their firewall software to allow these connections, or else Customer may need to arrange with their Internet Service Provider (ISP) to allow communication to the ports listed below. Customer also acknowledges that Provider may change the access ports and protocols at any time, without prior notification. Such changes shall be reflected in these General Terms of Service.
a) From the memoQ desktop program: secure TCP port 2705. The internet address is available at Provider’s website, under Customer’s account information.
b) From a web browser: TCP port 443 (HTTPS). The internet address is available at Provider’s website, under Customer’s account information.
c) memoQ server Resources API: secure TCP port 9091. The internet address is available at Provider’s website, under Customer’s account information.
d) optional memoQ server WS API: secure TCP port 9091. The internet address is available at Provider’s website, under Customer’s account information.
15. Definition of Service: A hosted memoQ server is a server computer and the memoQ server software, where Customer’s organization owns the server license and controls memoQ server, but the server computer is operated by Provider. The Service consists of the following components:
a) Server computer infrastructure: Provider shall procure and operate the means of infrastructure of running a memoQ server (hereinafter referred to as the ‘Server’). The memoQ server software must be licensed separately by Customer.
b) Support and helpdesk: Provider shall monitor the operation of the server, and intervene in the event of a downtime. Provider shall also offer helpdesk service where Customer may request assistance regarding the infrastructure of memoQ server, and request intervention in the event of a malfunction unnoticed or not noticeable by Provider. Response times are described in Section 40.
c) Automatic upgrades: If Customer has a valid SMA or a subscription license, Provider will, automatically or at a pre-negotiated time, upgrade the memoQ product on the server to the latest supported version and build. Customer may ask Provider not to upgrade, but in this case, Provider’s liability for damages is largely waived (see Paragraph 46).
d) Support and helpdesk for the hosting service is restricted to the server computer and its infrastructure, and keeping the memoQ server service running. With the hosting service alone, Customer may not request support regarding memoQ or memoQ server itself. For support regarding memoQ and memoQ server, Customer must also have a valid SMA, that is, a paid Support and Maintenance service that has not expired. Support and Maintenance are described in Chapter VIII.
a) From a compatible version of the memoQ desktop program to the network access point (memoQ server URL) of the Server, as provided by Provider. The protocol and ports are listed in Paragraph 17.
b) From a web browser to the network access point of the Server as provided by Provider. Connection limits may apply: they are determined by the licenses owned by Customer, and are out of the scope of the Service.
c) From a custom-made client application using the Web Services Application Programming Interface (WSAPI) of the Server. This is available only if Customer has a license for the WSAPI.
d) From a custom-made client application or from an extension to a translation tool, using the Resources API on the Server. Connection limits may apply: they are determined by the licenses owned by Customer, and are out of the scope of the Service.
e) Customer may not access the Server by any other means than listed above.
17. Network access parameters of the Server: Customer acknowledges and accepts that Provider offers the connection to the Service at the technical parameters listed below. If Customer experiences technical difficulties connecting to the Service, they may need to open or otherwise configure their firewall software to allow these connections, or else Customer may need to arrange with their Internet Service Provider (ISP) to allow communication to the ports listed below. Customer also acknowledges that Provider may change the access ports and protocols at any time, without prior notification. Such changes shall be reflected in these General Terms of Service.
a) From the memoQ desktop program: secure TCP port 2705. Internet address provided by Provider.
b) From a web browser: TCP port 443 (HTTPS). Internet address provided by Provider.
c) memoQ server Resources API: subject to individual agreement between Customer and Provider.
d) optional memoQ server WS API: subject to individual agreement between Customer and Provider.
18. Customer may not access the Service in any manner other than the documented user interfaces and application programming interfaces. In particular, Customer may not reverse engineer, disassemble, or invasively probe the Service or the related downloaded software, for any purpose including but not restricted to, sidestepping or overriding connection or license limits, gaining unauthorized or undocumented access to the service, retrieving non-Customer-related data or code, implementing or using undocumented functionality, or gaining business intelligence.
19. Customer may not develop and publicly offer any derived software products without Provider’s express, prior, written consent. This restriction applies to licensed software as well as software offered in the form of a service. Customer acknowledges and accepts that such use is subject to a separate agreement between Customer and Provider, and is not available at the standard service or license fees.
20. Customer may not redistribute or repackage the Service and the related licensed software, neither directly, nor in a derived form, for third parties as a service or software product offered by Customer, except for the purpose of offering an online service to provide language services to end-users. Customer acknowledges and accepts that such use is subject to a separate agreement between Customer and Provider, and is not available at the standard service or license fees.
21. Provider may not be forced to sell Services to competitors: Customer represents and warrants that they are not a direct competitor of Provider, or affiliated with a direct competitor of Provider in any manner. For the purpose of these Terms, a ‘competitor’ is an organization that develops and offers translation productivity technology (except if this activity is restricted to machine translation or business management). ‘Affiliated’ means one of the following: one party owned by the other (either in full or in part); one party controlling another; one party having an employee or contractor who is a board member or executive officer in the other party; parties that have explicit and exclusive partnership agreements. If Provider receives evidence that Customer is, or aims at, providing translation productivity technologies (except for machine translation or business management) to third parties, or is or plans to be affiliated to such an organization, Provider may terminate the Service with immediate effect, without refunding any service fees.
22. Provider shall monitor the operation of memoQ cloud servers and hosted memoQ servers, provided that Customer has a valid subscription or otherwise a paid service period.
23. Provider shall guarantee a level of availability, in percent of time, of the Server. The general level of availability is published on the https://www.memoq.com/service-availability page, unless agreed otherwise. The level of availability excludes maintenance windows, which shall not count as lack of availability. (A daily maintenance window is considered as part of the desired operation, and as such, it would not be counted as unavailability. Depending on the server size, daily maintenance typically takes only a couple of minutes.)
24. Compensation: if the availability of service, over a 12-month period, falls under the level guaranteed on Provider’s website, Provider shall refund part of the service fee to Customer. (The availability level is shown at https://www.memoq.com/service-availability.) Refunds are given at the request of Customer, and for months when the downtime exceeds the level allowed by the availability shown on Provider’s website. The refund is proportional to the time when the service was not available. The maximum amount of refund for a month with excessive downtime is 40% (forty percent) of the monthly service fee. No refund will be paid for months when service availability stays above the guaranteed level.
25. Customer acknowledges and accepts that the backup and maintenance processes of the Service may require downtime for the time of the backup, and that this downtime may not be counted as unavailability of the Server, and may not be counted against the availability level defined on Provider’s website. Provider shall conduct security maintenance once a month, which requires up to 2 (two) hours of downtime. This shall not count against the availability level, either.
26. Provider will not be required to guarantee the availability of a network connection from any specific location, especially from Customer’s premises, offices, or other places of business. Customer represents and warrants that, on their premises and other places of business, they procure and operate sufficient network connections as required to access and use the Service.
27. Customer acknowledges and accepts that in most cases, the availability of a network connection is out of Provider’s control. However, Provider shall use its best efforts to receive and forward compensation to Customer in the event that the unavailability of a network connection on the Provider’s side prevents the use of the Service at the availability level defined on Provider’s website. Customer acknowledges and accepts that such action on Provider’s part is possible only in the event that the network outage occurs within the infrastructure of the hosting provider where Provider rents physical or virtual devices, and network access.
28. Definition of Service. Conditions of using the service:
28.1. To use the Support and Maintenance Service (hereinafter referred to as ‘SMA’), Customer must meet the following prerequisites:
a) Have a perpetual license for a supported version of any memoQ product, and
b) Have paid the agreed SMA fee for the current service period (hereinafter: ‘have a valid SMA’), or
c) Have a valid, paid subscription license for any memoQ product, or
d) Have a valid, paid subscription for a memoQ cloud server, or
e) Use a memoQ product or a memoQ cloud server in a trial period that has not expired.
Some of the terms described in this section also apply to the Support and Helpdesk relating to the memoQ server hosting service (see Chapter VI). However, Support and Helpdesk for server hosting is a limited service, and does not inclue memoQ upgrades or support regarding memoQ and memoQ server. To access the latter, Customer must have a valid SMA, or a valid and paid subscription license.
28.2. By purchasing a perpetual license for a memoQ product, Customer shall automatically receive the Support and Maintenance Service (hereinafter referred as ‘SMA’) that is valid for 1 (one) calendar year from the date of purchase. The date of purchase is the purchase date indicated on Customer’s invoice. Upon expiry of the one year, Customer must extend the SMA with one more year by paying the service fee, in order to continue receiving the Service.
28.3. If Customer uses the hosting service but they do not have a valid SMA, the Service shall be limited to the hosting service and shall not cover general memoQ support.
28.4. If a Customer has a valid subscription to a memoQ cloud server, or a subscription license to any memoQ product, or an ongoing trial of a memoQ product, they are eligible to receive the Service.
28.5. The SMA agreed herein consists of the following components:
a) Product maintenance: Provider shall provide Customer with new numbered versions of licensed memoQ software products (hereinafter referred to as ‘Product’), as well as maintenance builds (updates) of the Product, within the period of the Service, for software products licensed by Customer.
b) Product support: Provider shall provide product support and helpdesk in order to solve issues related to software products licensed by Customer.
c) Installation assistance: At the request of Customer, Provider shall assist with the installation and configuration of on-premises server software products licensed by Customer. Installation assistance includes the installation and configuration of a working memoQ server, as well as memoQweb and Customer Portal if they are licensed. If Customer has licenses for the WS API and for the Resources API, they will also be configured at installation. However, installation assistance does not include the implementation of custom functionality or customized workflows, customized settings, customized data processing, or integration with external systems. Customer may access the latter services by ordering Business Services from Provider. Business Services are subject to separate terms and conditions, and are not available under the General Terms of Service.
29. Product maintenance: Upgrades and Updates
29.1. Upgrades: During the term of the SMA, at Customer’s request, Provider shall issue upgrade licenses to Customer for any new numbered versions of supported Products that Customer has licenses for, in the quantity licensed by Customer.
a) The upgrade licenses are issued when Customer installs and activates a new version of a memoQ product.
b) Provider always assigns version numbers to all new releases.
c) Provider may display the product version by using a brand name instead of the major and minor version numbers. However, the product version number is always displayed in the respective activation windows of each licensed memoQ product.
d) A release of the Product is considered different from the previous release if there is a difference in either the major and minor version numbers, or the minor version numbers. Two releases that differ in the build number only are not considered different versions. (Examples: 8.1.6 and 8.2.4 are different versions; 8.2.4 and 8.2.6 are not different versions but different builds.)
29.2. New upgrade licenses issued under the SMA shall be valid indefinitely, unless the original licenses, for which the upgrade licenses are issued, were also time-restricted. Upgrade licenses issued to subscription licenses are valid till the end of the subscription period. If an initial license is time-restricted or is a subscription license, the upgrade license shall have the same restriction (with an expiry date of the same day), and it shall be issued only if the expiration time is still in the future at the time of the upgrade.
29.3. Updates: Provider shall issue new releases of existing versions, without releasing a new minor version, that include fixes and improvements over earlier builds. If Customer has a license to a specific version of the Product, Customer may apply the updates released for that version, even if Customer has no valid SMA.
29.4. Discontinuing down-level versions: Provider may discontinue updates for Product versions earlier than the newest minor versions for the two newest major versions, without prior notice. (For example, in April 2019, the supported versions are memoQ 8.7 and memoQ 2015.) If Provider discontinues updates for a Product version, issues in that Product version will not be fixed by updates. Provider may require Customer to upgrade to a supported Product version in order to have specific issues solved.
29.5. Customer remains entitled to use all Product versions for which they have licenses. Customer shall not be required to upgrade to the newest Product version in order to continue using earlier versions of the same Product.
29.6. Customers with a valid SMA may apply updates (new builds of existing product versions) by connecting to Provider’s website, and downloading the newest installer package of the same version. Customer may also use the automatic update functionality built into the Product.
29.7. New versions of the same Product are not available through automatic updates. To upgrade the Product to a newer version, Customers having a valid SMA or a subscription license must connect to the memoQ website, and download the newest installer package of the newer version.
29.8. Partial upgrade results in reduction of number of licenses: If Customer owns a server license together with a client license pool, and Customer does not agree to pay the full SMA fee, but extends the SMA for a subset of the licenses only, Provider may deactivate or revoke those licenses from the license pool where the SMA was not extended. The same happens if Customer has a subscription license, and seeks to reduce the subscription fee. This may be a technical necessity: if the licenses are not valid for a memoQ client version that is compatible with the memoQ server, they will not work without an upgrade.
30.1. During the term of the Service, Customer may request the assistance of Provider’s Support and Helpdesk team in using or troubleshooting the Product.
30.2. Customer must have a valid SMA, a subscription license, or a memoQ cloud server subscription before they can contact Provider’s Support service. Customers who do not have a valid SMA may not contact Provider’s Support service.
30.3. Customers with a valid SMA, a subscription license, or a memoQ cloud server subscription may contact Provider’s Support and Helpdesk team using one of the following means:
a) By connecting to Provider’s Support website at the address indicated at the beginning of these General Terms of Service, and clicking Submit a ticket to request assistance (preferred)
b) By sending an e-mail to Provider’s Support and Helpdesk team at the e-mail address indicated at the top of the beginning of these General Terms of Service.
30.4. Customer shall submit one incident, question, or issue in one email or ticket. Customer shall describe the phenomenon and its impact. Customer must sufficiently document the issue with error messages or screenshots. Customers understands and acknowledges that Provider may not keep the response times if there are more than two questions, issues or incidents described in one message (ticket). Furthermore, Provider may be unable to keep the response times if the issue is not sufficiently documented.
30.5. Provider may change the helpdesk addresses without prior notification. However, changes shall be published in these General Terms of Service, as well as at Provider’s website and in newsletters.
30.6. Provider’s Support (Helpdesk) team shall be available at times listed in Section 37. Provider shall respond to Customer’s support requests within the times listed in Section 40.
30.7. When reporting a support incident, Customer shall clearly indicate the urgency of the issue. When the support incident is reported through Provider’s Support website, the priority of urgent tickets must be set to Urgent or Critical. Customer shall not report Critical priority unless they experience a complete service outage. If the support incident is reported in e-mail, the subject line of the e-mail must start with the word ‘URGENT’ or ‘CRITICAL’ to indicate urgency. Customer shall also indicate any delivery times or possible deadlines that they are aware of. Customer shall always indicate urgency in the subject line of the e-mail. An incident where the urgency is referred to in the e-mail body will not be considered urgent or critical.
30.8. Upon receiving a support incident report, Provider may request further data or documents in order to successfully resolve the incident. Customer understands and acknowledges that, without the requested data or documents, Provider may not be able – and shall not be required – to resolve the support incident.
30.9. Provider represents and warrants that data and documents received as part of a support incident report shall be used exclusively for resolving the support incident and related errors in the Product. Such data and documents shall not be transferred to third parties other than Provider’s regular subcontractors. Provider represents and warrants that it has entered into sufficient non-disclosure agreements with all regular subcontractors. Provider may retain the documents and resources in the issue tracking databases as long as this is necessary to resolve and follow up on related problems. Both the memoQ support database and the issue tracking system are available to authorized customer support and development personnel only, and they are protected from unauthorized access.
30.10. If Customer does not respond to a request for data or documents within 72 hours from the last correspondence, Provider’s helpdesk system will automatically close the incident. However, Customer may reopen the support incident by sending an e-mail to the official support e-mail address, quoting the identifier (number) of the support ticket from the last correspondence.
30.11. In order to resolve a support incident, Provider’s Support and Helpdesk team may request remote view or remote control of one or more of Customer’s computers. Customer understands and acknowledges that without the requested access, Provider may not be able – and shall not be required – to successfully resolve the support incident.
30.12. Provider represents and warrants that they and their employees or agents shall treat all information viewed or acquired over such access as highly confidential. Provider and their agents shall not record or transmit the information viewed or acquired over a remote viewing or control session.
30.13. If Customer reports an incident that originates in a known programming error, and that error was resolved in a more recent version of the Product, Provider’s Support personnel may recommend that Customer upgrade to the version containing the solution. Following the recommendation, Provider’s support personnel may close the ticket without providing further assistance.
31. Fees, payment, and continuity of the Support and Maintenance Service:
31.1. This Section applies to Customers who purchase perpetual licenses to memoQ products by paying a license fee. This section does not apply to Customers who have subscription licenses or a memoQ cloud server subscription. For the payment terms of the memoQ cloud server, see Chapter V. For the payment terms of subscription licenses, see the End-User License Agreement.
31.2. When Customer purchases a license for a Product for a specific serial number, the license fee includes one year of SMA. The one year starts from the date of purchase of the first license purchased for that serial number.
31.3. When an SMA period expires, a new SMA can be concluded, with a term starting on the next day after the expiration of the previous SMA. A new SMA for the same serial number must always follow the previous one. No time may pass between the expiration of a SMA period and the start of a new SMA term.
31.4. Parties may conclude multiple consecutive SMAs, for multiple consecutive years after the expiry of the current SMA.
31.5. For the SMA, or for the subsequent renewal of the SMA, Customer shall pay a yearly service fee. The service fee is calculated and paid as follows:
a) If Customer purchases additional licenses for licensed products under the same product key, the SMA service fee for the product key shall be changed. If the new purchase is made in the middle of a SMA period, Provider shall charge a proportional amount for the next period, for the products licensed over the course of the last SMA period.
b) If a SMA period ends and no new SMA is concluded immediately – that is, if the SMA service lapses for a given product key –, Customer shall pay the SMA service fees for all of the missed years in order to resume the SMA service. A SMA is not valid for one year from the time of purchase – it is valid for one year from the last day of the previous SMA. Example: if the previous SMA ends on January 1, 2018, and the next SMA is concluded on April 14, 2018, the new SMA shall be valid till January 1, 2019.
c) If the Customer is already in agreement with Provider to continue with the SMA fee, a grace period is considered, so that the service will not lapse when the SMA technically expires. This applies only if the delay is caused by a longer payment term or it is due to internal approval procedures.
32. Provider will not provide user assistance in an anonymous manner. Users requesting assistance must identify themselves and provide proof of one of the following: a valid memoQ or memoQ server license; an active and paid subscription license; an active trial period; a valid memoQ cloud server subscription.
33. Provider shall offer user assistance concerning the operation and use of the supported memoQ software, the memoQ server service, and the hosted memoQ server service.
34. User assistance does not include generic training on the use of the supported memoQ software. Customer may access training through Provider’s e-learning site, or through certified trainers or certified training sites that are independent from Provider.
35. User assistance does not include the implementation of custom functionality or customized workflows, customized settings, customized data processing, or integration with external systems. Customer may access the latter services by ordering Professional Services from Provider. Professional Services currently fall out of the scope of these General Terms of Service.
36. Provider may refuse to assist if the support request is unreasonable or irrelevant.
a) On weekdays (from Monday to Friday) 24 hours a day, including public holidays of Hungary. On Monday, the service starts at 6:00AM, CET or CEST.

39. Customer may access all past and pending issues they have submitted. Customer may not access issues submitted by other customers. Customer support issues that belong to an organization may be visible to all authorized personnel from that organization. Customer may contact Provider’s Support and Helpdesk team if they wish to clarify the group of authorized personnel.
a) On weekdays (from Monday to Friday), ‘Regular’ or ‘Normal’ tickets shall be answered in 24 (twenty-four) working hours, ‘Urgent’ tickets shall be answered in 8 (eight) working hours, and ‘Critical’ tickets shall be answered in 4 (four) working hours. Customer may expect the first response within the indicated times. The response time does not guarantee the resolution of the support incident. The automated e-mail response acknowledging receipt shall not count as a response.
b) On Saturdays and Sundays, ‘Regular’ or ‘Normal’ tickets shall be answered in 24 (twenty-four) working hours. ‘Urgent’ and ‘Critical’ tickets shall be answered till the end of the support hours, provided that they are submitted at least 3 (three) hours before the end of the support hours.
41. The Service does not include licenses that would allow Customer to operate a memoQ Server or any other memoQ product on their premises or by which Customer may access and use the Server. Licenses are subject to a separate End-User License Agreement, to be concluded separately. The End-User License Agreement is available on the Provider’s website at https://www.memoq.com/legal/end-user-license-agreement.
42. Scope of access and delegation: Customer may allow third parties to access the memoQ cloud server service or a hosted memoQ server under the following conditions and in the following numbers.

b) Customer’s representative and appointed administrators may allow access to the memoQ cloud server and hosted memoQ server by means of creating a user account. A user account must represent a person, and must always be used by the person represented. Authorized users who have a user account may not pass on the access credentials to third parties.
c) Authorized users, the representatives and appointed administrators of Customer may not attempt to access the memoQ cloud server and hosted memoQ server in any other means than listed in Paragraph 14.1and Section 16.

Customer assumes full responsibility for the actions of users to whom Customer grants permission to use the Server.
43. Administrative access: Provider retains and reserves the right to access the Server and the computer operating the Service for administrative purposes.
a) Provider shall have exclusive administrative access to the Windows desktop of hosted Servers and the server computer(s) where the memoQ cloud server runs, either directly, or through a remote control facility (such as Remote Desktop).
b) Customer may not have and may not request administrative access to the server computer(s).
44. If Provider is requested to resolve an incident by taking control of one or more of Customer’s computers, where Customer has a valid SMA and optionally a server hosting agreement, Provider shall proceed with the greatest possible care for to prevent any loss of data or functionality on Customer’s end, as well as any loss of productivity or business.
45. If loss of data or functionality occurs, and Provider’s responsibility is proven by Customer, and the loss of data or functionality causes loss of business or revenue for Customer, Provider shall be liable for the damages. If the extent and amount of the damage can be documented, and it is proved that the damage is exclusively the result of Provider’s fault, misconduct, or neglect, and it is also proved that the damage cannot be averted or mitigated in any other way, Provider shall be liable to the entire amount of the damage, through Provider’s professional liability insurance. If the extent of damage cannot be documented, Provider shall be liable for a maximum of the purchase price of the licensed products affected by the operations of the computer that is controlled by Provider at the time the loss occurs.
46. Provider’s liability is expressly and entirely waived in the following cases:

47. Provider represents and warrants that they at all times have and maintain a valid professional liability insurance to cover damages relating to the Services under these General Terms of Service, of an aggregate damage coverage of a minimum of 1 million USD.
48. If Customer is hosting a memoQ server on their own premises, Customer shall be responsible to maintain an infrastructure that facilitates busi-ness continuity. In this case, the responsibility of regularly creating backup copies is with Customer, because Provider lacks sufficient access to ensure this. If loss of data or functionality occurs, and Customer is not in possession of a reasonably recent backup copy, Provider’s liability is waived. If Customer uses a memoQ cloud server or a memoQ server hosted by Provider, it is Provider’s responsibility to maintain a business continuity infrastructure, as detailed in Paragraphs 49-59.
50. Provider shall use its best efforts to prevent unauthorized access to a hosted Server or to Customer’s memoQ cloud server and the data stored therein (whichever is applicable), and to prevent data loss or malfunction due to unauthorized access or storage device malfunction. This includes redundant storage, regular backups and access control.
51. Provider shall use its best efforts to prevent the unavailability, malfunction, or the temporary or permanent loss of Service, caused by a hardware malfunction, a malicious attack, or an unfavorable change in the environment. Provider shall also use its best efforts to mitigate the consequences, should any of the aforementioned events occur.
52. Provider shall not be responsible or liable for data security and system integrity if Customer does not use the infrastructure operated by Provider; that is, if Customer possesses a memoQ server license, and uses an on-premises server, or else they arrange the hosting themselves. The following para-graphs in this section apply to the memoQ cloud service and the memoQ server hosting service only.
53. Provider shall configure the memoQ cloud server or the memoQ server hosting service so that it will accept encrypted connections only.
54. If Customer does not use (does not enable) the secure connection offered by the Product, Provider shall not be liable for insufficient encryption or lack of data security. Neither shall Provider be liable for any resulting damages or loss of business.
55. Provider shall configure an automatic backup process for the memoQ cloud server service and for hosted memoQ servers. A backup copy of all data in the Service shall be created once every day. Provider will not configure any automatic backups for servers outside Provider’s control (hosted on Customer’s own premises or at a hosting center where the hosting is organized by Customer).
56. Provider shall, at its own expense, acquire and maintain backup storage space with sufficient capacity to hold all of Customer’s data. The backup storage may not be located on the same physical or virtual device that runs the Server.
57. Customer may at any time request the latest backup copy of the server data from the Provider.
58. Provider shall continuously monitor the operation of memoQ cloud servers and hosted memoQ servers, and receive automatic notifications of failure events. Provider will not monitor servers hosted by Customer.

Provider shall not copy, publish, or otherwise make available the Data added to the memoQ cloud server to unauthorized third parties, with the exception of creating backup copies for Customer’s exclusive benefit and for the purpose of disaster recovery.
62. Under a valid Service Agreement for a memoQ cloud server service or for memoQ server hosting, Provider may make up to 2 (two) copies of the Data on their premises or on the storage space offered by the data cen-ter for the purpose of disaster recovery. Provider shall prevent unauthorized third parties and other unauthorized personnel from accessing these copies.
63. Customer may request a copy of the Data in the form of a full server backup from the Provider. Provider shall make available the latest backup of the server within 2 (two) working days.
67. Provider’s regular subcontractors shall count as authorized third parties and shall be allowed to access the Data on Servers or cloud servers in Customer’s use, as well as Customer’s personal details. The access shall be granted solely for the purpose of problem resolution, and to the minimum extent that is required to resolve the problem. Provider represents and warrants that it has entered into sufficient non-disclosure agreements with all regular subcontractors.
68. If Customer resides in the European Union, or processes personal data of citizens of the European Union, the rules of Regulation 2016/679/EC of the European Commission (GDPR) may apply to them. In this case, the Data Protection Addendum will automatically apply to Customer’s contract with Provider. The Data Protection Addendum, whenever applicable, shall form an inseparable part of these General Terms of Service, and consequently, of all Service Agreements between Customer and Provider.
69. If Customer is accessing third-party online services through a licensed memoQ product, that shall not count as data collection performed by Provider. Provider shall not be responsible for the collection and processing of data by third parties where Customer registers or subscribes directly for the third-party service (such as a machine translation provider). When using such third-party services, the terms and conditions and the privacy policies of the owner or operator of the third-party service shall apply.
70. Ordinary termination of the server hosting service: Parties may terminate the Service Agreement for the server hosting service in writing, with a 30-day notice. Parties agree to provide a reason in writing of such termination. During the termination period, Parties shall comply with all terms and conditions herein. At the end of the termination period, Parties shall settle all accounts. Unless Parties do not agree otherwise, Provider shall refund any excess payments for unrendered Services to Customer. Conversely, Customer shall pay any outstanding service fees to Provider. Parties agree to make the payment in 30 (thirty) days to the bank account specified by the other Party, by wire transfer.

In that event, Provider shall terminate Customer’s use of the Service at the end of the already paid service period. Customer is responsible for backing up their systems before sending a termination notice.
74. Restriction of license distribution functionality in the event of non-payment for the SMA or for subscription licenses: If Customer uses Support and Maintenance Services without payment, Provider may restrict the functionality of the memoQ software used by Customer. The following specific rules apply:
74.1. At Customer’s request, Provider may exempt Customer from advance payment for Support and Maintenance Services. In the event of exemption, Customer is granted access to Support and Maintenance Services, and Parties agree in a payment schedule.
74.2. In the event of non-payment – if Customer is 90 or more days late with any agreed payment or agreed instalment –, Provider may restrict the functionality of the software used by Customer. Specifically, Provider may remotely disable the license distribution (ELM or CAL) functionality of the memoQ server software used by Customer. This will render the affected memoQ server(s) inaccessible for project managers, administrators and in-house or contracted translators who use ELM or CAL licenses from these servers.
74.3. If Customer fails to pay according to the payment schedule, and at least one payment or instalment becomes overdue by 90 days, Provider shall send a payment notice of 8 (eight) calendar days.
74.4. If, following the payment notice, Customer fails to pay any outstanding amounts within the allotted 8 (eight) calendar days, Provider will disable license distribution on Customer’s affected memoQ server(s) immediately, without further notice. The restriction applies to versions that Customer upgraded to during the SMA period affected by non-payment.
74.5. In the event of a license restriction, Customer may downgrade to a version earlier than the beginning of the affected period, and use license distribution again – but only for those down-level versions. The downgrade process may result in the loss of data or processes. Customer must always bear the entire risk in the event of the downgrade of the memoQ software.
75. Termination by extraordinary notice, especially in the event of non-payment:
75.1. In the event that Customer commits a proven material breach of the Service Agreement, including these General Terms of Service, or in case of owning licenses to memoQ products, Customer violates the End-User License Agreement, Provider may terminate the Service Agreement by sending a 15-day termination notice, documenting the breach with evidence. During the 15-day period, Customer may resolve the breach and thus restore access to affected Services.
75.2. In the event of non-payment, for the memoQ cloud server service: If Customer’s payment is overdue by 5 (five) calendar days or more, Provider will suspend (terminate Customer’s use of) the Service. This is enforced automatically by Provider’s systems.
a) To resume the Service, Customer shall contact the Provider, and also pay the next month’s service fee.
b) If Customer fails to resume the Service in 30 (thirty) calendar days, Provider may terminate the Service, and erase the memoQ cloud server with any backup data, without further notice.

Provider may charge a one-time fee for the storage and the transmission of data. Provider may not charge for the data themselves, and Provider may not refuse to transmit the data since they are owned by Customer.
75.3. In the event of non-payment for the memoQ server hosting service: If Customer’s payment is overdue by 30 (thirty) calendar days or more, Provider may send a 10-day payment notice.

a) In this event, Provider will not provide assistance in transferring the Server to a different provider.
b) Upon termination of the service, Provider shall create a backup of all Server data, and make it available for Customer’s download for 30 (thirty) calendar days from the day of termination. After the expiry of said 30-day period, Provider will delete the backup data without further notice.
75.4. In the event of non-payment for a subscription license: If Customer’s payment is overdue by 30 (thirty) calendar days or more, Provider may send a 10-day payment notice. If Customer does not pay the outstanding fees in that 10-day period, Provider may immediately terminate the accompanying Service in writing. Provider will not create a backup copy or assist in creating a backup copy of Customer’s systems.
75.5. Termination rules for both the memoQ cloud server service and the memoQ server hosting service:
a) If Customer’s use of the Service violates the law of a country, state, or other territory of jurisdiction, authorities may require the service to be terminated. In this case, the termination may be immediate, and without prior notice. In such an event, Provider shall notify Customer as soon as possible. Backup data shall remain available to Customer for 15 (fifteen) calendar days, unless authorities order the destruction of said data.

a) Provider shall assist with the transfer at an agreed hourly fee, unless Parties agree otherwise.
b) Because the Service does not include licenses to use the server software on a dedicated on-premises or hosted device, Customer shall be required to purchase the required licenses prior to the transfer, at a license fee separately agreed by Customer and Provider.
c) Provider shall not be required to assist with the transfer if the termination of the service does not happen by Parties’ mutual consent, or if the service is terminated due to a proven material breach on Customer’s part.
