Fair Use Policy – VOXI Subscriptions
It is our policy that all use of VOXI should be reasonable and not excessive so that all users are able to access and use VOXI in accordance with their licences. We may apply this Fair Use Policy where in our reasonable opinion your usage, or an Authorised User’s usage, of VOXI is excessive and/or unreasonable as detailed in this section.
We have developed this Fair Use Policy by reference to average customer profiles and estimated usage of VOXI. If your usage of a service materially exceeds estimated use patterns or is inconsistent with normal usage patterns, then your usage will be excessive and/or unreasonable.
If your usage is excessive and/or unreasonable we may request that you stop or alter your usage to come within our Fair Use Policy.
If your excessive or unreasonable usage continues after we ask you to stop or alter the nature of such usage, we may without further notice, suspend, modify, or restrict your use of VOXI.
No Refund Policy – Pay-As-You-Go Access
This Refund Policy applies to use of VOXI via Pay-As-You-Go Access. Fees for Pay-As-You-Go Access are incurred by the Licensee immediately upon submission of Licensee Data to VOXI irrespective of the period it takes for the data to be processed by VOXI. The Licensee will not be entitled to a refund on any fees where it purports to cancel any service following submission of the Licensee Data to VOXI.
The Licensee shall own all rights, title, and interest in and to all of the Licensee Data and Material and shall have sole responsibility for the legality, reliability, integrity, accuracy and quality of the Licensee Data and Material.
In the event of any loss or damage to Licensee Data or Material, the Licensee’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be for Seequent to use reasonable commercial endeavours to resupply the VOXI services. Seequent shall not be responsible for any loss, destruction, alteration or disclosure of Licensee Data or Material caused by any third party (except those third parties sub-contracted by Seequent to perform services related to Licensee Data or Materia or to undertake maintenance and back-up).
Modifications and Service Interruptions
Seequent does not warrant that the Licensee’s use of VOXI will be uninterrupted or error-free or that any defects will be corrected. Seequent will not be liable for service interruptions or any other service failures.
Seequent may interrupt services to perform maintenance to VOXI or to address or mitigate the effects of security breaches, virus attacks, denial of service attacks, or other intentional interferences by third parties. Seequent will exercise reasonable efforts to inform you before interrupting your use of VOXI and to repair or reinstate VOXI services promptly.
Seequent reserves the right to do any of the following, at any time, without notice: (1) to modify, suspend or terminate operation of or access to VOXI, for any reason; (2) to modify or change VOXI, and any applicable policies or terms; and (3) to interrupt the operation of VOXI, as necessary to perform routine or non-routine maintenance, error correction, or other changes.
If your use of VOXI is interrupted by Seequent your sole remedy is for Seequent to re-perform the services.
Limitation of Liability
Except as expressly and specifically provided in these Terms of Service:
a. the Licensee assumes sole responsibility for results obtained from the use of VOXI by the Licensee, and for conclusions drawn from such use. Seequent shall have no liability for any damage caused by errors or omissions in any information, instructions or scripts provided to Seequent by the Licensee in connection with VOXI, or any actions taken by Seequent at the Licensee’s direction; and
