Terms of Service for Business Partners
Last updated: 18-Jun-2015
Thanks for using Authentise! These Terms of Service are intended for Authentise's business partners and not end users of the streaming tools. If you are an end user, please see our EULA
- Our Services: Authentise is a provider of software that enables You to control, facilitate and improve the remote 3D printing of designs via your website, and also provides a platform that brings You multiple services required for the successful deployment of 3D data driven applications, such as: enabling You to stream designs directly from your website onto your customers' printers, storage, rendering, parameter control, model manipulation, slicing and streaming, and the sale and distribution of your designs via our publishing platform (collectively, the "Service"). You will be deemed to have placed an order (your “Order”) with Authentise each time you automatically access our server in order to use the Service. Authentise is willing to accept Your Order only if You comply with the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
- Consent to Use of Data: You agree that Authentise may collect and use technical data and related information, including but not limited to technical information about your website, your users devices, systems and peripherals, that is gathered periodically solely to facilitate the provision of Service updates, product support and other services to You (if any) related to the Service. Authentise may use this information, as long as it is in a form that does not breach relevant applicable privacy laws. For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to constitute an agreement to sell your or your users’ additive manufacturing, digital or other designs to us.
- Termination. This Agreement is effective until terminated by You or Authentise. Your rights under this Agreement will terminate automatically without notice from Authentise if You fail to comply with any Terms. Upon termination, You shall cease all use of the Service, and destroy all copies, full or partial, of the Service. You may terminate your account at any time by contacting customer service at email@example.com. If You terminate your account, You will remain obligated to pay all outstanding fees, if any, incurred prior to termination. We may refuse to provide our website and Service to You, in full or in part, effective immediately and without notice, for any reason or no reason, but especially if we believe that You have violated or will violate any laws, rights, or term or condition of any agreement you are a party to with us, our affiliates, contractual partners, or Users; or if we believes in our sole discretion that your use of this website and Service may create any risk (including any legal risk) for us, our affiliates, contractual partners, or Users. Limitation of access may include removal or modification of content that you have uploaded or otherwise submitted to or through the website and Service. All provisions of this Agreement and any other agreement between You and Authentise that by their nature survive termination, will survive.
- Scope of Use. You are authorized to use the Service as set forth in the terms of this Agreement, as they may be modified from time to time (the “Terms”). Your rights to access and use the Services are personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable and non-sublicensable. You may not distribute or make the Service available over any other network or marketplace. You may not otherwise transfer the access granted herein or any right or ability to view, access, or use the Service. You may not copy, decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble, attempt to derive the source code of, modify, or create derivative works of the Service. Any attempt to do so is a violation of Authentise’s rights. If You breach these restrictions, You may be subject to prosecution and damages. The terms of the Agreement will govern any upgrades provided by Authentise that replace and/or supplement the original Service.
- Use of the Service. Use of the Service may require Internet access and You accept any additional terms of service associated with such internet access. You understand that the Service may not be compatible with certain 3D printers or designs. Nevertheless, You agree to use the Service at your sole risk and that Authentise shall not have any liability to You for any delays in transmission or other factors that may limit a printer’s ability to access, modify, or copy a design or that may otherwise result in files becoming lost, corrupted or in printing being terminated prematurely.
- Proprietary Content. You agree that in accessing the Service, you will have access to Authentise’s proprietary content, information and material that is protected by applicable intellectual property and other laws, including but not limited to copyright, and that You will not use such proprietary content, information or materials in any way whatsoever except for permitted use of the Service. No portion of the Service may be reproduced in any form or by any means. You agree not to modify, lease, loan, sell, distribute, or create derivative works based on the Service, in any manner, and You shall not exploit the Service in any unauthorized way whatsoever, including but not limited to, by trespass or burdening network capacity. Authentise reserves all rights not granted expressly in these Terms.

We may, in our sole discretion, remove or take down any such content that we believe to be infringing, or for which we have received a notice of infringement. However, we are not obligated to review any of the content submitted by You.
- Fees and Payment. You agree to pre-pay for every Order You place in accordance with the fee schedule provided in Your Pre-Payment Authorization. You grant Authentise the right to charge the credit card or debit the bank account or Paypal account provided by You to Authentise for all fees incurred under this Agreement.
