AAG 365 Backup Terms and Conditions
Updated as of April 1, 2023
If You do not agree to these Terms and the Agreement, you may not register, access or use the Products.
1. USE OF PRODUCTS
a. Right to Use. Subject to your compliance with these Terms, the Agreement and the receipt by us of all fees applicable to the Product, 365 backup grants you a limited, revocable, non-sublicensable, non-exclusive right and license to access and use the Product for the number of licenses and/or the applicable data storage allotment in each Product account in accordance with the Product Specifications. Unless otherwise specified, you will receive the current standard Product features and functionality (such as number and frequency of backups) for the applicable Service Plan and for the number of licenses in each Product account under your 365 backup portal account.
b. Accounts and Licenses. Each Product account (an “Account”) backs up data of individual users associated with an existing domain account (each a “User” and a “Domain,” respectively). Product licenses are required for all protected Users allocated to an Account regardless of status (e.g., active, paused, archived) or other specified seat usage in accordance with the Product Specifications. All Product licenses allocated to the same Domain must have the same Service Term.
c. Account Registration/Set up. You are required to set up each Account in accordance with the Product Specifications. During set up, you agree to provide accurate and complete information, and you further agree to promptly update this information should it change. Each User that is designated for backup upon account set-up will automatically provision a 365 backup license, as applicable, or use an available license that has already been purchased. All Users added to an Account after initial account registration by any Administrator of the Account, either manually or through any enabled automatic add features, will automatically provision an additional license or use an available license that has already been purchased. You acknowledge that you are responsible for any features you enable for each Account, either at set up or at any time thereafter, including but not limited to, automatic add and license cap features.
d. Backup Process. The term “Backedup Site” means a third party website or web-based application or service (such as, for example, Microsoft O365 or Google Workplace) with which the 365 backup Product interacts to obtain copies of Content that exists on the Backedup Site. 365 backup will undertake commercially reasonable efforts to save a copy of the Content that you have designated for use and backup by the 365 backup Product to a server operated by 365 backup. In accordance with the Order and Documentation, 365 backup will automatically poll the API of a Backedup Site for changes or additions to the Content and periodically re-save a copy of a modified file or create a copy of a newly designated file. You, on behalf of Users and for yourself, hereby authorize 365 backup to access and interact with the Backedup Sites so 365 backup can retrieve and store copies of the Content. 365 backup will store the unique authorization code provided to 365 backup by the Backedup Site (a “Token”) to access such site on you or a User’s behalf.
f. Rights and Responsibilities Regarding Content and Product Use.
I. License to Content. On behalf Users, you (i) represent and warrant that you and/or the User have sufficient rights and all required third party consents, permissions or licenses in and to the Domain and Content as may be necessary and appropriate for use of the Content with the Product; and (ii) hereby authorize us to access and interact with the Domain to retrieve Content; and (iii) hereby grant to 365 backup a limited, royalty-free, non-exclusive, assignable license to copy, reformat, disclose, transmit, scan, display and otherwise use the Content as necessary or desired, in each case solely for the purposes of providing the Product or as otherwise necessary for 365 backup to exercise its rights under these Terms. You and/or the applicable User is responsible for the accuracy, quality and legality of the Content, and the means by which rights to the Content for use with the Product were acquired.
II. You must maintain authorization and access to the Domain(s) and Backedup Sites so that we are regularly able to access it for purposes of providing the Product. You agree and acknowledge that Content may not be available or restorable a) if our access authority to a Domain or Backedup Site is changed or otherwise restricted; b) due to unavailability of the Domain or Backedup Site, or any portion thereof; c) if the Domain or Backedup Site provider amends its API guidelines in such a way that affects our ability to access the Domain to provide the Product; and/or d) with respect to modifications to the Content that are not captured in the backup frequency or retention schedule for the Service Plan chosen.
III. Third Party Administrator Responsibilities Regarding Content and Product Use. If you are a third-party Administrator managing or using the Product on behalf of another entity such as a client (a “Client”) client, you represent and warrant that you are acting as an agent on behalf of the Client and that you are acting within the scope of your agency. Accordingly, you agree to obtain the Client’s authorization and comply with Client’s instructions at all times with respect to use of the Product and access to Content, including but not limited to: Service Subscription, backup settings, access controls, management, retention and deletion of Content, transition of an Account or Content to a different Administrator, and transition assistance and cooperation upon termination or expiration of any relationship between or among an Administrator, Client and/or 365 backup. 365 backup expressly may rely on the authorization of any Administrator with respect to access and control of an Account or Content.
VI. Client Terms for Managed Accounts. If you resell a Product to a Client, act as a Product Administrator for a Client or if you authorize a Client to directly use or support a Product, you must ensure that the Client agrees to the 365 backup Client Terms in substantially the form attached as Exhibit A hereto as part of a valid, enforceable contract between you and the Client.
2. SERVICE SUBSCRIPTIONS
a. Service Subscription Required. All Product licenses must be included in a valid Service Subscription for which we receive timely payment. A Service Subscription includes a group of licenses that have the same Term Length and Service Plan.
b. Service Plan. Each Service Subscription requires a particular Service Plan regarding the retention of backups. All Service Plans include licenses to the technology needed to perform backup functions and access to 365 backup Technical Support. The retention applicable to each Service Plan determines how and for how long Content associated with an Account is retained. In general, Content associated with Accounts enrolled in any Service Plan will be retained, as specified in the applicable Service Plan, for as long as the Account has appropriate licenses provisioned to it under an active Service Subscription for which payments are current.
c. Service Plans:
I. Time Based Retention Service Plan. In this Service Plan, incremental data backups are maintained for one year on a rolling basis, with the oldest incremental backups deleted first after one year. Automatic consolidation of incremental backup recovery points is applied on a rolling basis:
3x daily backups are retained for 30 days
Daily backups are kept after 30 days
Weekly backups are kept after 90 days, then stored rolling for up to 1 year
II. Infinite Cloud Retention Service Plan. In this Service Plan, incremental backups are retained for an indefinite period of time. Automatic consolidation of incremental backup recovery points is applied on a rolling basis:
3X daily backups are retained for 30 days
Daily backups are kept after 30 days
Weekly backups are kept after 90 days
Monthly backups are kept after a year, then stored for selected retention period.
III. Limitations on Storage. Unless otherwise specified, Service Plans and Accounts are not limited to a pre-defined amount of 365 backup Cloud storage. However, all access and use of all Service Plans and Accounts are subject to Fair Use policies that prohibit use that:
Results in excessive bandwidth or storage;
Harms 365 backup services, networks or other resources; and/or
Circumvents the intended use of the Product.
d. Term Length. The term of a Product Service Subscription is for a defined number of consecutive months (a Committed Service Term). A Service Subscription shall commence on the date the first Product license in the Service Subscription is provisioned for an Account or the date on which an Order placed with a 365 backup account executive is accepted. A Service Subscription always ends on the last day of a calendar month. For invoicing and renewal purposes, a Committed Service Term will commence on the first of the month following the start of the Service Subscription and will remain in effect for the defined number of consecutive months.
e. Committed Service Term High Watermark. If licenses in a Service Subscription are purchased for a Committed Service Term, that Committed Service Term will apply for the initial license(s) and for any additional licenses added to the same Service Subscription. The number of licenses, including licenses added after the initial licenses in a Service Subscription, may not be decreased from the high watermark and are committed for the remainder of the then-current Committed Service Term so that all licenses in the Service Subscription terminate on the same date. 365 backup reserves the right to monitor usage and retroactively invoice for use and high water marks that was not reflected on invoices covering months of actual use.
f. Renewals. Unless timely cancelled by you as described herein, the term of any Service Subscription licenses will automatically renew for the same term (Committed Service Term) for the number of licenses as of the “license count date” immediately preceding the renewal date. The license count date shall be the date on which 365 backup measures the number of licenses in each Service Subscription. This date will be the same each month but is subject to change at 365 backup’s sole discretion.
g. Cancellations/Adjustments. You may cancel or adjust the number of licenses in a Service Subscription in the manner described in the Product Specifications, and only in the last month of the Committed Service Term prior to the fifteenth calendar day of that month.
h. Account Termination. For up to sixty (60) days after the effective date of termination of an Account, we will, upon written request, allow you to export or download a copy of Content as provided in the Product Specifications. After such period, we have no obligation to maintain or provide any Content and may thereafter delete or destroy all copies of the Content, unless legally prohibited.
i. License Invoicing and Financial Terms.
I. An Order for a license is generated when you provision a new license for an Account. An Order for one or more licenses may also be placed with your 365 backup sales executive.
II. Service Subscription fees are invoiced in advance monthly commencing on the first monthly invoice following the provision of the first license in the Service Subscription or acceptance of an Order placed with a sales executive. Monthly Service Subscription fees are based on the total number of licenses in each Service Subscription as of the license count date from the previous month.
III. Monthly payments for each Service Subscription are due upon receipt each month and will be charged to the applicable payment method.
IV. You agree to pay monthly Service Subscription fees for the entire Committed Service Term. Unless otherwise agreed, you may not prepay for a Service Subscription. If you terminate your Service Subscription at any time during a Committed Service Term, a lump sum payment (equal to 100% of the monthly unpaid Service Subscription fee for the number of licenses in a Service Subscription as of termination times the number of months remaining in the Committed Service Term) will be due immediately and charged to your preferred payment method.
V. 365 backup may terminate any Service Subscription at its discretion, effective immediately, for non-payment that is not substantially cured within thirty (30) days after receiving written notice.

Your Product management portal account may be hosted in the U.S. regardless of where you, the Accounts or Content related to them may be located. You are responsible for securing any necessary consents related to the hosting location of your Portal account.
