If you are accepting on behalf of the Customer, you represent and warrant that: (i) you have full legal authority to bind the Customer to this Agreement; (ii) you have read and understood this Agreement; and (iii) you agree, on behalf of the Customer, to this Agreement.

For an offline variant of this Agreement, you may contact Genesis Cloud for more information.

1. Provision of the Service

1.1. Service Use
During the Term, the Customer may:
- use the Services
- any Software provided by Genesis Cloud as part of the Services.

The Customer may not sublicense or transfer these rights. Customers are restricted from registering multiple Accounts with the same billing details without the consent of Genesis Cloud. Genesis Cloud shall, without notification to you, suspend the Account or any other Account used by such Customer. The use of referral codes by multiple Accounts having the same billing profile is not allowed. Genesis Cloud also reserves the right to terminate a Customer's Account if it is targeted by malicious activity from other parties.

1.2. Dashboard
Genesis Cloud will provide Services to the Customer. As part of receiving the Services, the Customer will have access to the Dashboard through which the Customer may administer the Services. The Dashboard also provides the Customer tools to deploy the Services and Genesis Cloud infrastructure for deep learning, rendering, dedicated GPU services, video transcoding, and other applications.

1.3. Accounts
The Customer must establish and maintain an Account and a Token or similar Account credential to use the Services and is responsible for the information it provides to create the Account, the security of the Token and its passwords for the Account, and for any use of its Account and the Token. If Customer becomes aware of any unauthorized use of its password, its Account, or the Token, Customer will notify Genesis Cloud as promptly as possible. Genesis Cloud has no obligation to provide Customers with multiple Tokens or Accounts.

1.4. Service Level Agreement and Variances
The Customer acknowledges that the Services shall be rendered on a best-effort basis by the Genesis Cloud Service Level Agreement ("SLA"). The availability of the Services may vary as outlined in the SLA. Notwithstanding the aforementioned variance, Genesis Cloud shall make reasonable efforts to ensure that all facilities and the relevant supplies for providing the Services are maintained in good working order to avoid any variance with the same diligence it applies in its dealings.

1.5. New Application and Services
Genesis Cloud may:
- make new applications, tools, features, or functionality available from time to time through the Services
- add new services to this Section 1 (Provision of Services) from time to time, the use of which may be contingent upon the Customer's agreement to additional terms.

1.6. Modifications to Terms of Services or Privacy Policy
Genesis Cloud GmbH reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove any portion of these Terms and Conditions, including the Privacy Policy, in whole or in parts, at any time. If Genesis Cloud makes a material change to the Services or Privacy Policy. The user’s continued use of Genesis Cloud's services after such changes are posted will constitute its agreement to such changed SLA, Terms of Service, and/or the Privacy Policy. Genesis Cloud will provide at least five (5) days advance notice, except if the changes apply to new functionality in which case they will be effective immediately for material changes to any SLA, changes in these Terms of Service, and/or the Privacy Policy by either:
- sending an email to the Customer's primary point of contact
- posting a notice on the Dashboard or Genesis Cloud website
- posting a notice to the applicable Service Level Agreement or the Customer Support webpage.

Genesis Cloud will post any modification to this Agreement to its website.

2. Payment Terms, Fees and Taxes

2.1. Service Fees
The Customer shall pay a per-second rate for every second the Customer uses, with a one-minute minimum. Please visit the Genesis Cloud pricing page for more information on per-second billing. Except as otherwise noted, our prices are exclusive of applicable taxes and duties, including value-added tax ("VAT") and applicable sales tax.

2.2. Taxes
The Customer is responsible for any taxes, and the Customer will pay Genesis Cloud for Services without any reduction for taxes. If Genesis Cloud is obligated to collect or pay Taxes ( the “Taxes”), taxes will be invoiced to the Customer, unless the Customer provides Genesis Cloud with a timely and valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. In some countries, states, and provinces, the sales tax is due on the total purchase price at the time of sale and must be invoiced and collected at the time of the sale. If the Customer is required by law to withhold any taxes from its payments to Genesis Cloud, the Customer must provide Genesis Cloud with an official tax receipt or other appropriate documentation to support such withholding. If under the applicable tax legislation, the Services are subject to local VAT and the Customer is required to make a withholding of local VAT from amounts payable to Genesis Cloud, the value of the Services calculated by the above procedure will be increased (grossed up) by the Customer for the respective amount of local VAT and the grossed-up amount will be regarded as a VAT inclusive price. The local VAT amount withheld from the VAT-inclusive price will be remitted to the applicable local tax entity by the Customer and the Customer will ensure that Genesis Cloud will receive payment for its services for the net amount as would otherwise be due (the VAT-inclusive price less the local VAT withheld and remitted to applicable tax authority). If required under applicable law, the Customer will provide Genesis Cloud with applicable tax identification information that Genesis Cloud may require to ensure its compliance with applicable tax regulations and authorities in applicable jurisdictions. The Customer will be liable to pay (or reimburse Genesis Cloud for) any taxes, interest, penalties, or fines arising out of any mis-declaration by the Customer.

2.3. Invoice Disputes & Refunds
Any invoice disputes must be submitted before the payment due date. If the parties determine that certain billing inaccuracies are attributable to Genesis Cloud, Genesis Cloud will not issue a corrected invoice, but will instead issue a credit memo specifying the incorrect amount in the affected invoice. If the disputed invoice has not yet been paid, Genesis Cloud will apply the credit memo amount to the disputed invoice and the Customer will be responsible for paying the resulting net balance due on that invoice. To the fullest extent permitted by law, Customer waives all claims relating to Fees unless claimed within 60 days after charged (this does not affect any Customer rights with its credit card issuer). Refunds (if any) are at the discretion of Genesis Cloud and will only be in the form of credit for the Services. Nothing in this Agreement obligates Genesis Cloud to extend credit to any party.

2.4. Delinquent Payments Suspension
Late payments may bear interest at the rate of 1.5% per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less) from the payment due date until paid in full. The Customer will be responsible for all reasonable expenses (including attorneys' fees) incurred by Genesis Cloud in collecting such delinquent amounts. If the Customer is late on payment for the Services, Genesis Cloud may suspend the Services or terminate the Agreement for breach under Section 9.

2.5. Payment for Service Usage
The charged amount is a result of the total time duration of their usage times and the set price for that duration - per used instance. By accepting our Terms of Service, the customer permits Genesis Cloud to charge for used services. At the same time, the customer commits to pay Genesis Cloud the issued amount with a valid credit card.

On-demand services are billed on the first day of the month following the billing period (e.g. 1st of June a customer receives an invoice for used services in May). Genesis Cloud sends the invoice to the registered email address while the amount is charged to the provided credit card (the transaction is executed through our payment service partner). As long as customers are registered this process is automatically performed every month (if the charged amount equals zero, there will be no bill generated).

Prepaid services can be used for 1, 3, 6, or 12 months. The customer pays upfront for the number of requested instances via credit card and can use these instances non-stop until the end of the paid period. A prepaid service subscription will automatically renew at the end of the period unless automatic renewal is stopped by the customer.

Customers may request an early payment for on-demand use (outside the regular payment period). Genesis Cloud reserves the right to grant this request or not depending on the individual case.

2.6. Credit Card Authorization
Genesis Cloud reserves the right to authorize credit cards provided by customers as a payment method at any time by initiating a temporary hold no larger than the current outstanding amount on the upcoming invoice. These activities marked as “Credit Card Authorization”* are not regular charges or payments to Genesis Cloud but temporary holds ensuring the provided credit card is a viable payment method. In case there is no outstanding amount for the upcoming invoice, the charged amount depends on the nature of the quota request of the customer and may vary. If the validation is successful, the amount claimed by Genesis Cloud as authorization will be released to the issued credit card within seven banking days. Unsuccessful credit card authorization will lead to suspending the account in question. This method may be used multiple times for the same credit card over the month.

*Some banking apps might not display this in the reference field.
