The Supplier updates and maintains the Service continuously and aims to inform Customers in advance about possible interruptions in the operation of the Service in advance. However, critical security updates and critical maintenance operations may be conducted without advance notice.
The Supplier strives to offer constant availability of the Service but cannot warrant uninterrupted availability thereof. The Supplier offers the Service on a software-as-a-service basis and therefore has no influence and is not responsible for the Customer’s Internet access or Internet connection including its availability, bandwidth or any costs and expenses of the Customer associated therewith.
The Supplier shall not guarantee any specific service level on the operation or availability of the Service.
All questions regarding usage of the Service or reporting problems in the Service can be sent to email@example.com.

The pricing is based on Core hours used. The more the Customer commits to buying, the less they pay. Payment is done upfront, unused Core hours will transform to next calendar month. If quota is exceeded, we will invoice the exceeded hours with the same hourly price as is the current customer commitment based price.
Core hours are based on the time and number of cores that are being used. So for example, running a one-hour long simulation using 50 nodes which all have 2 cores comes up to a total of 100 Core hours. Core hours are tracked by the starting minute.
All prices in the following table are in EUR.
In the price list, each plan contains a number of support hours included in the price with the given plan. These are included in the monthly or yearly plan price.

Support includes email support, consulting services in creating the needed simulation scripts and technical support calls. Support hours exceeding the plan limits are invoiced every calendar month according to the accrued hours.
All prices listed are in EUR and excluding sales tax, value added tax and other official charges. Payment term is 14 days net from the date of invoice. Regarding SaaS services, invoices are sent on 1st day of each calendar month for monthly plan. For yearly contracts, the invoice shall be sent after the SaaS Agreement has been signed by both parties.
Regarding the Professional Services, invoices are sent on 10th day of each calendar month on the following month when the support work was delivered.
This Data Processing Schedule (“Schedule”) sets forth the Parties’ obligations regarding personal data protection and compliance with all directly applicable EU legislative acts related to the protection of personal data (“Personal Data”) as in force from time to time, and all other applicable EU or national data protection legislation (“Data Protection Law”).
Under the Contract, the Supplier provides the Customer with the Service and related professional services that may require the processing of Personal Data controlled by the Customer.
The Supplier shall process Personal Data only for the purpose of providing the Service and the related professional services and performing other related contractual obligations. Types of Personal Data processed and the legitimate need for processing is defined in annex 1 (“Processing of Personal Data”).
Personal Data is processed during the term of the Contract and will be removed in due course after the termination of the Contract unless the Supplier has a legitimate retention need.
In relation to the performance of their obligations under the Contract the Parties agree to comply with this Schedule and the Data Protection Law. The Supplier shall process Personal Data only to the extent necessary for fulfilling its obligations under the Contract and following the Customer’s written instructions. If following any future instructions of the Customer results to obligations beyond those under the Contract or what is necessary for the Supplier to comply with legal obligations directly applicable to a data controller, the Customer will compensate the Supplier for incurred costs. Furthermore, the Customer will compensate the Supplier for incurred costs which result from accommodating changes in applicable laws.
After the termination of the Contract the Supplier shall at the choice of the Customer either delete or return to the Customer all Personal Data. The Supplier may retain copies of Personal Data only to the extent required under applicable laws.
Unless otherwise agreed, the Supplier shall process Personal Data only within the EU or the EEA.
The Supplier may engage subcontractors to process Personal Data provided that each such engagement will be agreed on a written contract whereby the subcontractor shall comply with the same data protection obligations applicable to the Supplier. The Supplier shall inform the Customer of any intended changes concerning the addition or replacement of such subcontractors and allow the Customer to object to such changes. In such a case, the Parties shall strive to find a commercially reasonable alternative solution. If no such solution is found, the Supplier may terminate or suspend the processing of personal data without being in breach of the Agreement.
Except to the extent necessary for the Supplier to perform its obligations towards the Customer under the Contract, the Supplier shall keep Personal Data confidential, shall have no rights to Personal Data and, unless specifically agreed otherwise with the Customer in writing in this Schedule or otherwise, shall not access, use, process, disclose, or transfer Personal Data, in part or in whole, to any third party during or after the term of the Contract unless legally required. The Supplier shall also ensure that its personnel who have access to Personal Data will process Personal Data only in accordance with this Schedule and have committed themselves to confidentiality or are under an appropriate statutory obligation of confidentiality.
In order to assist the Customer to comply with the obligations of controlling Personal Data as defined in the Data Protection Law, the Supplier shall:
The Supplier shall implement and use its reasonable efforts to maintain appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect Personal Data against accidental, unauthorized, or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, disclosure, or access. The Supplier shall implement, in compliance with the agreed information security requirements and the Data Protection Law, the appropriate measures, such as:
The Supplier shall without undue delay, provide the Customer with reasonably detailed written notification of its discovery of any data breach. The notification shall contain at least:
The Customer shall have the right to audit the processing activities of the Supplier to examine the level of protection and security provided for Personal Data under the Contract.
The Parties agree that the audit right will be exercised by appointment of a recognized independent third-party auditor with proven experience in the field. Such a third party must not be a competitor of the Supplier, and prior to the commencement of any auditing activities the auditor must sign a confidentiality Contract with the Supplier that is substantially similar to the confidentiality provisions contained in the Contract. The Supplier shall have the right to arrange for auditing of its subcontractors by providing the Customer with a data protection audit report from an audit carried out by a recognized independent third-party auditor with proven experience in the field.
The audit timetable, method and scope will be agreed beforehand between the Parties and the audit may not burden the Supplier or endanger the Supplier’s or its other customers’ services provision, quality, security, or confidentiality. The Customer will pay all costs related to the audit.
Regarding an audit request directly from a supervisory authority regarding the processing of Personal Data, the Supplier must cooperate with the Customer in responding to the request.
If requested by the Customer in order for the Customer to comply with the Data Protection Law, the Supplier shall at its standard rates:
Each Party shall be fully liable for its own acts and omissions, including those of its subcontractors, under this Schedule, subject to the limitations of liability set forth in the Contract. Consequently, in the event a data subject presents claims, the liability shall be determined in accordance with article 82 of the general data protection regulation (EU) 2016/679 (“GDPR”) or corresponding Data Protection Law, and each Party shall be fully liable for any administrative fines imposed on it pursuant to article 83 of the GDPR or corresponding Data Protection Law.
The Supplier processes following Personal Data within the scope of the Service:
We store and process data that the Customer has uploaded to the Service. This data may contain personally identifiable information.
This data is removed from the Service no later than 1 year after the Customer ends their contract with the Supplier, unless there is a legal requirement to retain this data longer.
The Service uses so-called cookies, which are small data files stored locally on the Customer’s client computer to store a Customer identifying hashed token. This token is received from the Service, and is used in communication with the Service to identify the Customer when they use the Service, without them having to constantly type in their username and password.
Other identifiers may be stored in cookies, such as anonymised identifiers (ie. identifiers that are specific to a single user, but cannot be mapped to their Personal Data) to gather usage analysis data to detect most used features, software errors and other information to improve the Service.
The security related cookies expire within a set amount of time. Some non-security related cookies, such as cookies storing user preferences, may have longer or indefinite expiration periods. The cookies may remain in the Customer’s computer even after they cease to use the Service, but the Customer can easily delete the cookies using the features offered by their chosen web browser.
Information Security is one of the highest priorities of the Supplier. This overview describes the minimum security measures and precautions that are being considered when operating the Service and handling Personal Data.
AWS security documentation can be found here: https://aws.amazon.com/security/.
The Supplier has defined general security practices that are followed within the company. These practices include information security, system and asset management and development of the Service. These practices are reviewed at least annually.
The personnel at the Supplier are required to attend security training. This training covers information security and data privacy. Personnel responsible for critical systems receive additional training relevant to their position.
The personnel are required to use encryption, backups and a company provided password manager on company related hardware and software systems when applicable.
The Supplier provides the Service utilizing third party service providers, who have high security standards. They cover physical security (access control, personnel screening, etc.) and environmental security (protection from fires, natural disasters, etc.).
The Supplier follows the principle of least privileges, meaning that only relevant personnel are given access to information they need. Personnel does not have generic privileges that would allow access to all Personal Data or the Service infrastructure.
The Service is developed separately from the production environment that is being utilized by Customers. This protects against data loss and employee misconduct in addition to the principle of least privilege.
Only selected persons have access to production systems for maintenance purposes.
Publicly released security vulnerabilities are automatically scanned for and checked if found by the Service development team.
The Supplier makes constant efforts to be compliant with current regional laws and regulations applicable. Furthermore, the Supplier follows the industry best practices in development and governing processes.

In such case the Supplier will refund an advance payment to the extent it corresponds to time after the termination of the Contract.

Any revision of these Terms shall be announced to Customer in text form (simple email shall suffice) no later than ninety (90) days before their proposed effective date.
Customer may either approve or object to the revision before their proposed effective date. The revision shall be deemed approved by Customer, unless Customer objects in writing to the revision no later than thirty (30) days before the proposed effective date and provides justification as to why the revision cannot be approved by Customer.

If the Customer has objected to the revision, the Supplier shall be entitled to terminate the Contract to end on the proposed effective date by sending a written notice of termination to the Customer on or before the proposed effective date.

The parties shall attempt through negotiation in good faith to replace the unenforceable provision with such provisions that correspond as closely as possible to the original intention of the parties.
The Contract will be governed by the substantive laws of Finland, excluding any conflict of law principles in any jurisdiction. Any and all disputes, which the parties have failed to settle amicably, arising out of, or relating to the Contract will be finally settled by arbitration in English language in accordance with the Arbitration Rules of the Finland Chamber of Commerce. The dispute shall be resolved by a sole arbitrator. The award of the arbitration will be final and binding upon the parties. However, claims for non-payment of monetary charges may be submitted to the district court of the respondent’s place of domicile provided the respondent has not contested its payment obligation with justified grounds. Furthermore, nothing in the Contract shall be deemed to limit the parties' rights to seek interim injunctive relief or to enforce an arbitration award in any court of law.
