The text below manages the terms under which you can use Keboola Connection under our Free Plan. While it is a bit longer than we would like, there are things that we just need to cover. TL:DR; - you play nice, we will too! And of course don’t hesitate to contact our support straight from your project in case anything is unclear.
These Terms of Service constitute a legally binding agreement made between you, whether personally or on behalf of an entity (“you” or “User”) and Keboola Czech s.r.o. ("Keboola", “we”, “us”, or “our”), concerning your access to and use of the Keboola Connection – subscription-based software-as-a-service data warehousing solution and ETL platform that facilitates the extraction, transformation, loading and storage of data from various sources (“Services”) accessible at https://connection.keboola.com, as well as any mobile website or mobile application connected thereto (collectively, the “Platform”). By accessing and/or using the Platform without a valid Order Form according to our Master Software Subscription Agreement, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by these Terms of Service. Unless you signed the Order Form, the Master Software Subscription Agreement does not apply to you.
Project you work on. “Project” or “Keboola Connection Project” means a single working environment at the Platform, usually used to serve a specific assignment. Each Project under these Terms of Services has separate billing and user access management. Projects under an Order Form are billed and managed according to the terms of such Order Form.
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to make changes or modifications to these Terms of Service at any time and for any reason. We will alert you about any changes by updating the “Last updated” date of these Terms of Service. By your continued use of these Terms of Services after each update, you agree with the updated Terms of Service.
The Platform is intended for users who are at least 18 years old and who use the Platform for business purposes, not as consumers. You may never resell the Services accessed under these Terms of Services.
You may invite other users to your Keboola Connection Projects. You undertake to us that each such invited user will agree to and comply with these Terms of Service.
When using the Platform, you must comply with Terms & Conditions – the rules of conduct governing the use of the Platform, as posted online at https://www.keboola.com/terms-and-conditions and as amended from time to time.
FREE USE OF SERVICES AND CREDITS
When you register on the Platform, using your email and other details which we may require for the registration, you have limited free access to the Services.
You’ll be allowed to have one Project at a time and you will receive a limited number of credits per month as part of your free access to the Services. The limit is stated on the Platform and we may update it with immediate effect by stating the new limit on the Platform or by any other notice to you. Your Project consumes credits based on the time it takes for it to run and based on the storage capacity it requires. Each credit gives you 60 minutes of total job runtime.The monthly free credits do not roll over to the next month. When such credits are used, your Project will no longer be running, but you will not lose access or any data or configurations (except as provided below). If you need more than one Project, contact our support; we may allow that on a case-by-case basis. Credits are not transferable from one Project to another.
You can obtain additional credits for your Project, either by purchasing them via the top up page of the Platform or by being granted those by us as a bonus or reward for certain activity (such as participation in a survey) as announced by us from time to time. Purchased credits generally do not expire (except at the termination) and remain available for your Project until needed. The monthly free credits will be used first, followed by any rewarded or purchased credits. When you are out of credits or when we discover that in our view your credits are not sufficient for your Project, we will notify you by email. The user interface will also let you know the status.
Other users invited to your Project can make credit purchases for your account.
If you or we cancel your Project, any unused credits forfeit without any reimbursement.
Each Project has limited overall storage capacity (the limit is visible on the Project dashboard). We may update it with immediate effect by stating the new limit on the Platform or by any other notice to you. Contact support if you need more storage capacity.
The types of data when using the Platform are:
“Data” means all data in electronic form input collected, developed, received, used or stored by Keboola or Affiliates in connection with the provision of the Services.
“User Data” means Data stored within your instance of the Services such as content of tables, content of data storage, definition of transformations, configuration of applications, and Personal Information (“Personal Information” means any and all personally identifiable information of any individual, including without limitation, the User’s accounts, account numbers, names, addresses, social security numbers, or any information derived therefrom).
“Metadata” means all Data except for User Data.
In short, you own your User Data, but we own the Metadata in order to operate and improve our Services.
In order for us to provide the Services, you grant Keboola and Affiliates a worldwide, limited, royalty-free license to access, copy, and use the User Data for the purpose of providing you the Services and improving the Services. Other than this limited license, User Data is your exclusive property. Likewise, the Metadata is our exclusive property.
Your User Data is protected, and we cannot disclose, sell, assign, lease, or otherwise provide it to third parties without your expressed prior written consent and except as necessary for providing you with the Services or required under applicable laws.
Data Security: We are careful with your User Data, and make sure it is managed in accordance with our data management and security standards. We take commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security and confidentiality of User Data and to prevent its accidental or wrongful destruction, loss or deterioration. We also will inform you of any unauthorized disclosure, leak or access to User Data, or security breach.
We may, but are under no obligation to, review User activity, conduct, and User Data for compliance with these Terms of Service. We do not review User activity, conduct and User Data for compliance with applicable laws. Keboola hereby disclaims any and all liability associated with the content of User Data, and its use or disclosure via the Services. If we are notified that your User Data breaches other person’s rights, we may limit or block access to such User Data.
The terms and conditions of the Data Processing Agreement found at www.keboola.com/dpa, as amended from time to time (the “DPA”) are incorporated to these Terms of Services by reference and the DPA is entered into between Keboola and you upon your acceptance of these Terms of Services or updated Terms of Services, unless you and Keboola entered into a standalone data processing agreement and unless neither you nor Keboola is required to enter into a data processing agreement taking into account the nature of User Data and other aspects of the Services.
