Terms of Use.

Welcome to the Instanda demonstration system (the “Demo System”) a new way to design, build and sell insurance products online. 

These terms of use are intended to explain our obligations as a service provider and your obligations as a customer. Please read them carefully.

These Terms of Use govern how you may access and use the Demo System, and constitute a binding agreement between you and F2X Ltd . (“F2X” or “we”) concerning your use of the Demo System and the various data storage and access services made available at the Demo System (collectively, the Demo System and services are the “Demo Services”). By clicking the ‘’I have read and agreed to the 30 day demo agreement’’ box or visiting, accessing or otherwise using the Demo System or Demo Services in any way, you affirm that you have read and accept these Terms of Use.  In addition you are agreeing that the entity using the Demo Services (‘’the Company’’) will be bound by and becomes a party to the terms of the Demo Services agreement.  The effective date of this agreement shall be the day you click ‘’I have read and agreed to the 30 day demo agreement terms’’. 

You may not access the Software or Service if you or the Company is a direct competitor. Additionally, you or the Company may not access the Software or Services for purposes of monitoring their availability, performance or functionality, or for any other benchmarking or competitive purposes.

These Terms are not intended to address every issue raised.  We reserve the right to change these terms at any time, effective upon the posting of modified terms and we will make every effort to communicate these changes to you via the website.  It is likely the terms of use will change over time.  It is your obligation to ensure that you have read, understood and agree to the most recent terms available on the Instanda site.

1. Definitions:

1.1. "Confidential Information" includes all information exchanged between the parties to this Agreement, whether in writing, electronically or orally, all Services, data, drawings, benchmark tests, specifications, trade secrets, object code and source code of the Software, and any other proprietary information supplied to you by F2X, including all items defined as "confidential information" by F2X.

1.2. "Demonstration Period" shall mean the period of time which shall be no longer than thirty (30) days beginning on the date we provide access to the Demo Services via the Internet.

1.3. "Demo Services" means the provision of access via the Internet to the Demo System and associated services.

1.4 "Software" shall mean the Instanda system we make available for the Demo Services  or otherwise distribute in object code form.

2.Limited Licence and Purpose of the Demo Services.  The main objective of the Demo Services is to provide those who are considering using the Instanda system (the “system”) with a simple and reliable, but temporary, way to test its major features.  By its nature, the Demo Service is a trial so although the Demo Services may permit you todesign, build and store rating information along with website content such as text, images, photos and documents (“content”), the Demo System is not intended to provide you with a permanent repository for such content, even during the limited duration of a trial Demo Account (a “Demo Account”).

2.2. Licence use The license is granted solely to the registered user (Licensee), and not, by implication or otherwise, to any parent, subsidiary or affiliate of the Licensee.  We reserve all rights not expressly granted to the Licensee. The Licensee shall not copy, distribute, reproduce, use or allow access to the Demo Services, except as explicitly permitted under this Agreement. Nor shall the Licensee modify, adapt, translate, or prepare derivative works from the Demo Services and, to the extent permitted by applicable law, shall not, decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble or otherwise attempt to derive source code from the Demo Services.

8.1 Temporary. The Demo Services are offered on a temporary, trial basis only, as determined by the current F2X policy, which is set in the sole and absolute discretion of F2X. We may terminate these Terms of Use at any time. In addition to other remedies, we may immediately terminate these Terms of Use, or otherwise immediately suspend or close a Demo Account, without notice if we believe or suspect that you have violated any of your obligations under these Terms of Use. Demo Services will be deleted after 48 hours from set up, if a user does not log in. When you first sign up for access to the Demo there is no obligation to continue to use the Services. If you choose to continue using the Services after the demo period you will be billed from the day you first added your billing details into the Demo Services.

8.3 Destruction of Content. We may, in our discretion, remove and destroy any content held in any Demo Account, at any time, including (without limitation) as needed for maintenance or in the event of violation of any provision of these Terms of Use. We may also destroy content upon termination or suspension of a Demo Account. We will have no liability for termination or suspension of any Demo Account, or any related removal or destruction of content. Content is Demo Account-specific; hence, opening a new Demo Account will not enable one to access content stored in another Demo Account.  Immediately upon expiration or termination of these Terms of Use, you must stop using and/or accessing the Demo Services.

8.4 Survival. The relevant Terms of Use will survive termination of Demo service.

You can provide feedback to F2X at any time, in which case you agree that F2X may use the feedback in any way that it desires in its sole discretion, including (without limitation) by incorporating any feedback into the Demo Services and in advertising or other marketing or promotions that may attribute such feedback to you.
