1.) Acceptance: The individual or legal entity purchasing The Anti-Cloud Service (hereinafter referred to as the "Anti-Cloud Service Client" or "Client"), by signing at the bottom of the Terms & Conditions, where this Agreement was accessed in the Anti-Cloud Service Client Portal, as part of The Anti-Cloud Service Activation Purchase process initiated on the "Shop" Page of the www.myanti.cloud web site, indicates acceptance of these Terms & Conditions. In addition, the Client hereby agrees to abide by all of the Terms & Conditions herein and The Anti-Cloud Corporation, Inc. (hereinafter: "ACC")'s Acceptable Use Policy, below, which is an integral part of these Terms & Conditions of The Anti-Cloud Service Agreement. If you do not have authority to enter into this Agreement, or if you do not agree with its terms and conditions, do not indicate acceptance of it by the aforementioned signature. These Terms & Conditions and ACC's Acceptable Use Policy will be accessible to view by clicking on the hyperlinks in the footer of The Anti-Cloud Service's web site: www.myanti.cloud.
2.) Term of Service: The Anti-Cloud Service will be billed on a daily basis. An Anti-Cloud Service Client can cancel their Service at any time, by sending an E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, stipulating that they want ACC to stop their Anti-Cloud Service. Billing will include the day of cancelation. Billing commences upon an Anti-Cloud Client's Anti-Cloud Service being Activated, which means that they have received the Activation E-mail for their Anti-Cloud Service from ACC. The first day of the Activation E-mail being sent, for the Anti-Cloud Service, is not billed. Billing is on a Monthly Billing Cycle, billed after the month that the Anti-Cloud Service is provided. Invoices will be e-mailed from ACC to the Client on the first of the month after the Anti-Cloud Service is provided and will be due on the 28th of that month. If the Anti-Cloud Service is not Activated within thirty (30) days of a Client purchasing the Anti-Cloud Service Hard Drives, then ACC will provide the Client a free month of their Anti-Cloud Service. The hard drives, external cases and overnight shipping, included within the Activation Purchase, are non-refundable, unless the Anti-Cloud Service is not Activated within 30 days from the Activation Purchase. If a refund is requested, by e-mail, to email@example.com, the Anti-Cloud Service will also be canceled for that Client.
If an Anti-Cloud Service Client does not pay an Invoice by the Due Date, which is always the 28th day of the month, after the month of service, ACC will provide the Client with up to a three (3) day Grace Period, but will disconnect The Anti-Cloud Service for that Client on the 1st day of the next month, if payment was not received by ACC from the Client for their Anti-Cloud Service within that time-frame. ACC will leave the Client's Hard Drives in their Anti-Cloud Service Storage Slots (provided as part of The Anti-Cloud Service) until the last day of that month, after which time, if payment for Past Due Invoices was not received by ACC, ACC will then ship the Client's Hard Drives, using overnight shipping, to the address of the Client listed within the Client's Account Contact Details for The Anti-Cloud Service. The Client is responsible for the accuracy of their shipping address. If the Client's Hard Drives are returned, for any reason, to ACC, ACC will keep them for one (1) month, after which the hard drives will be destroyed. If the Client communicates by E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, prior to destruction, pays for shipping and provides a correct address, ACC will re-ship the hard drives to the Client. ACC will ship the Client's Hard Drives in the external cases purchased by the Client as part of the initial Activation Purchase of The Anti-Cloud Service. If a Client pays all Past Due Invoices, before ACC ships the Client's Hard Drives, ACC will re-activate The Client's Anti-Cloud Service. The Client will be billed for any days that the Client's Hard Drives are within their Storage Slots.
If a Client Hard Drive fails, during the five (5) year warranty period of the hard drive, ACC will replace it at no cost to the Client and sync the data from the functioning hard drive with the replacement drive. If both Client Hard Drives fail at the same time, ACC will obtain the services of a data recovery company, at no cost to the Client, to retrieve the data for The Anti-Cloud Service Client; if possible.

In order to protect other Anti-Cloud Service Clients, the Client agrees to keep all ACC Confidential Information that it becomes aware of, by use of the Anti-Cloud Service, confidential and will exercise at least the same degree of care that it uses to protect its own confidential information of a similar nature, but in no event less than reasonable care to (i) restrict dissemination of the ACC Confidential Information only to individuals or third parties with a need to know and who are under a substantially similar duty of confidentiality, and (ii) not use any ACC Confidential Information for any purpose other than in the use of the Anti-Cloud Service by the Anti-Cloud Service Client. The Anti-Cloud Service Client's obligations will not apply to information that is rightfully in its possession prior to receipt from ACC, is or becomes publicly available other than as a result of a breach of this Agreement, or is rightfully obtained by the Anti-Cloud Service Client from a third party under no obligation of confidentiality with respect to the information. The Anti-Cloud Service Client shall only disclose ACC Confidential Information to another entity if required to do so by law or regulation.
C.) Continuing Waiver: No failure by ACC to insist upon the strict performance of any Term or Condition or to enforce a right or remedy provided under these Terms & Conditions shall be construed as a waiver of or relinquishment with respect to any subsequent performance or breach of performance, but each and every Term & Conditions herein shall remain in full force and effect with respect to any other existing or subsequent breach of these Terms & Conditions.
