Your access to and use of the services (collectively, the "Services") is conditioned on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. By accessing or using the Services you agree to be bound by these Terms.

If you are accepting on behalf of your employer or another entity, you represent and warrant that:

(ii) you have read and understand these Terms; and
(iii) you agree, on behalf of the party that you represent, to these Terms. 

Services Offered

The Services offer you the ability to use, on subscription basis, the Smartforms Cloud software to create, publish and manage online forms. The Services are supplied to you as a Software as a Service solution.

The Services are deployed on a server-side infrastructure also provided by Fifth Ocean (hosting) for shared use within a professionally managed data centre environment.

The scope of Services is defined based on description of services applicable at the time of the conclusion of contract and the availability of the Services as described in this Terms and Service Level Agreement. Fifth Ocean is constantly advancing the Services, new functionality may be added. If functionality is removed, the users' legitimate interest in maintaining functionality will be taken into account.

We will maintain and service the Services during the term of the contract and will provide you with new versions, patches, and updates, free of any additional charge.

Licence

Subject to these Terms, Fifth Ocean grants you a licence to access and use the Services and the software and systems enabling the server side of the Services, only to the extent necessary to use the Services as described by Fifth Ocean on this Site.

Subscriptions

The Services are billed on a subscription basis ("Subscription(s)"). You will be billed in advance on a recurring and periodic basis ("Billing Cycle"). Billing cycles are set on a monthly basis in the currency selected when purchasing a Subscription. To arrange billing on annual basis contact us at support@smartfor.ms

At the end of each Billing Cycle, your Subscription will automatically renew under the exact same conditions unless you cancel it or Fifth Ocean cancels it. You may cancel your Subscription renewal either through your online account management page or by contacting Fifth Ocean customer support team.

A valid credit card payment is required to initiate your Subscription. By making such payment, you automatically authorize Fifth Ocean to charge your monthly Subscription fees from this credit card account.

Should automatic billing fail to occur for any reason, Fifth Ocean will issue an electronic invoice indicating that you must proceed manually. The full payment for the billing period as indicated on the invoice is to be made before the specified due date. For more details, see Billing Policy.

Free Trial

When opening a SmartForms account you are entitled to a 30-day Free Trial period. There is no limitation on functionality during the trial.

At any time and without notice, Fifth Ocean reserves the right to (i) modify the terms and conditions of the Free 30-day Trial offer, or (ii) cancel such Free 30-day offer.

Fee Changes

Fifth Ocean, in its sole discretion and at any time, may modify the Subscription fees for the Subscriptions. Any Subscription fee change will become effective at the end of the then-current Billing Cycle.

Fifth Ocean will provide you with a reasonable prior notice of any change in Subscription fees to give you an opportunity to terminate your Subscription before such change becomes effective.

Your continued use of the Services after the Subscription fee change comes into effect constitutes your agreement to pay the modified Subscription fee amount.
