By accepting these T&C for Clients, the Client is also deemed as having agreed with the use by Sandstone of third-party payment processor, as expressly consented to the collection and processing of necessary data for the processing of payments in relation with Sandstone (e.g. processing of card details) and as expressly consented with the direct debiting of the payment card, with the due amount of the subscription for Services, on payment due date. The Client may terminate the Agreement for convenience, in accordance with Clause 7 herein, in case the Client does not agree with any of the terms of the third-party payment processor / wants to prevent further debiting of its payment card, without being entitled to any kind of indemnification/damages/cost/subscription reimbursement from Sandstone.

(f) Upon completion of “Create your account” form, the Client is informed on the terms governing the processing of personal data, including on our commitments to process data in compliance with the legal framework (the “Privacy Notice for Clients”). Then the Client is asked to confirm agreement with the T&C for Clients and having been informed on the terms of personal data processing.

 

(g) Once Client gives its agreement (e.g. through ticking the relevant box), Sandstone sends a transactional email to the Client, asking the Client to confirm e-mail to be used for Client Account (including any transactional correspondence); once confirmation is given by the Client, Client Account is activated and Services contracted by the Client as per Clause 1.3 (a) below are available for Client’s access and use as per the Agreement.

 

1.3 The Services.

 

(a) The Client contracts the Services it wants to access in the Sandstone Cloud Platform via the Sandstone Cloud Site and, if the case, through the Special Terms.

The Client can benefit from the Free Trial Period only once (e.g. in case after the elapse of the Free Trial Period, another new Client Account is set up for the same Client, no Free Trial Period shall apply).

 

(b) The Client shall not owe the monthly subscription fee for the Services during the Free Trial Period; nevertheless, other fees may be owed by the Client (e.g. set-up fee), as presented on Sandstone Site and/or in the Special Terms. In the latter case, Sandstone shall debit the payment card via Stripe as per this Agreement; in case the Client withdraws their approval, and/or the payment cannot be performed for reasons outside Sandstone fault (e.g. insufficient Client funds), Sandstone shall have the right to act according to Clause 3 below.

 

(c) Depending on the Services/monthly subscription plan contracted by the Client, certain functionalities and/or features of the Services may not be available during the Free Trial Period, as indicated, if the case, on Sandstone Site/in the Special Terms.

(d) The Client may enable all End Users created in Client Account during the Free Trial Period; nevertheless, if the Client downgrades and the Service covers less end users than the End Users created during the Free Trial Period, the Client will only be able to enable the number of End Users the Service is purchased for. If the purchased (paid) Service covers more end users than the number of End Users created during the Free Trial Period, the Client will be able to add End Users. Any other amendment of the configuration of the Services agreed by the Parties shall be reflected accordingly.

 

(e) At no moment shall Sandstone be liable/responsible for ensuring/providing back-up services, included in or distinct from the Services.
