Bitext Terms of Service
Welcome to Bitext. Please read these terms carefully before you use the Bitext service.
These Terms of Service set out the terms of a contract between us and our customers. They describe the Bitext service we will provide to you, how we will work together, and other aspects of our business relationship. We cannot provide the Bitext service to you unless you agree to them. We are Bitext Innovations S.L, a company registered in Spain company tax id number ESB85291649 and whose registered office and principal place of business is at 8, Jose Echegaray St. Madrid 28233 Las Rozas de Madrid, Spain. We are referred to as “we”, “us” or “Bitext” in these Terms of Service. “You” means the person or entity requesting access to the Bitext service.
Your attention is drawn in particular to the ability for us to suspend your access to the Bitext Services under section 1.6; section 3, which sets out important disclaimers in respect of the Bitext Services; and the limits of liability in section 14.
If you think that there is a mistake in these terms or they require any changes, or you would like to discuss any of them, please contact us at email@example.com
You agree to these Terms of Service on behalf of the entity or organisation whose details you enter on the Bitext website as subscribing to or evaluating the Bitext service. By doing so, you are representing to us that you have the authority to do so.
The binding contract created by your acceptance of these Terms of Service and our acceptance of your order for a subscription is referred to in these Terms of Service as “our agreement”. If you breach any of the terms, we may terminate your access to the Bitext Services.
If not given a meaning right away when they are mentioned, capitalised terms (like “the Bitext Services”, for example) are defined at the end of these Terms of Service in section 17.
1. Usage of the Bitext Services
1.1 You may use the Bitext Services during the period of your Subscription solely for your internal business operations and subject to these Terms of Service. The right to use the Bitext Services applies to you only, and not anyone else (for example, if you are a company, any other company which might be affiliated with you).
1.2 You must ensure that your usage of the Bitext Services does not exceed your Subscription Allocation.
1.3 You must ensure that each of your Authorised Users shall keep a secure password for their use of the Bitext Services, and that each Authorised User shall keep their password confidential. You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and password. Bitext will not be liable for any loss or damage from your failure to comply with this security obligation. You will be responsible for any activity undertaken using your account credentials.
1.4 You must ensure that you comply at all times with our Acceptable Use Policy, which forms part of our agreement.
1.5 We will be entitled to suspend or disable your access to any User Data Model that breaches the provisions of our agreement.
1.6 Bitext may temporarily disable your account if your usage significantly exceeds the allocation specified in respect of your Subscription. Bitext will contact you before taking any such action, except in rare cases where the level of use may negatively impact the performance of the Bitext Services for other customers.
1.7 From time to time, Bitext may make Beta Services available to you at no charge. You may choose to try such Beta Services at your sole discretion. Bitext makes no warranty or representation regarding any Beta Services, and may discontinue Beta Services at any time in its sole discretion and may never make them generally available.

If you wish to upgrade your Subscription, you shall pay to Bitext the relevant fees for such additions as set out on the Bitext Website and, if the upgrade is purchased by you part way through a Subscription Period, such fees shall be pro-rated from the date of activation by Bitext for the remainder of the current Subscription Period. If you are upgrading from a Trial Subscription to a paid Subscription, we will charge your payment card immediately and your new Subscription Period starts on the day of upgrade.
2.2 For downgrades in Subscription level, the new rate starts from the end of your current Subscription Period. There will be no prorating for downgrades made mid-Subscription Period.
2.3 You are only permitted to set up one Trial Subscription per legal entity. Any user found setting up multiple Trial Subscriptions for any entity will be terminated and blocked from accessing the Bitext Services immediately.

You acknowledge that Bitext Services are not designed for your own particular individual circumstances and the Bitext Services are not provided as a substitute for bespoke analysis of the User Data Model.

5. Usage Data
5.1 Bitext uses Usage Data to build features and improve the functionality and feature set of the Bitext Services, and may disclose to third parties aggregated and anonymised research data (which cannot reasonably be used to infer the identity of any user or customer of Bitext) based on the Usage Data and User Data Model. Nothing in our agreement shall restrict Bitext from such use of Usage Data.
