A Customer is any person or entity that creates a V360E account and accepts these terms.
1.2. The Provider. AeL is a Danish SaaS company that provides a cloud-based software called V360E (“Platform”) which enables registered subscribers and trial users (“Subscribers”, or “you”) to create, distribute, and use e-courses for training and learning.

- Use of Platform
2.1. Signing Up. You need to sign up for a V360E user account by providing all required information. If you are representing an organisation, we recommend that you use your email address with your organisation. You agree to provide true, current and complete information about yourself, and maintain it to be so during your entire use of the Platform. If we have reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, outdated or incomplete, we may terminate your user account and refuse future use of any or all our Services.
2.2. Activation. You may be required to take certain steps to activate your subscription. If we determine the activation to be done fraudulently, we may reduce the availability of the Service or suspend or terminate the subscription.
2.3. Services. Subject to your compliance with these Terms and the law, we grant you limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable access to and use of our Platform for your or your organisation’s internal business purposes for the duration of your subscription or the trial period
2.4. Restrictions. As the Provider and sole owner of all the rights, title, and interests in the Platform, and we reserve all rights not granted under these Terms. As the Customer, you are not allowed to perform any of the following either by yourself or through a third-party:
- sub-host or let third parties use or gain access to our Services without prior written consent from us;

- use AeL or V360E name, logo, trademarks, service marks, or other branding elements without our prior written consent on a case-by-case basis.
2.5. Trial Subscription. Trial subscription is available under a one-time evaluation period. We recommend you refer to the description of trial features before signing up. The Services will automatically terminate at the end of the trial period unless your trial subscription is converted into a paid subscription. In case of termination, we shall delete any content you uploaded to your trial account. To the maximum extent permitted by law, trial versions are provided without warranty or indemnification.
2.6. Account Information. You are responsible for your account information and for all activity that occurs via your account. You must not share it to anyone other than your authorised Administrator/s. You are advised to notify us immediately if you discover any unauthorized use of your account.
2.7. Administrator. The Administrator is your designated and authorised user who is responsible for managing your account. He/she has access to the account as administrator and can manage the projects (create, edit, publish, delete), the users (register, enrol, delete), and the media library (upload, organise, delete), among others. The Administrator may be you or another person and can be more than one in certain instances such as when the account allows for multiple Administrator accounts.
2.8. Customer’s Users. The Service allows you to register users (Registered Users), and enrol them to the projects/courses you publish in the Platform or distributed through the Learning Management System (LMS) you integrated with the Platform (Enroled Users).

We do not deal with your users directly, except for the automated email they receive from us for their account activation. You are solely responsible for your relationship with your users, and you are the controller of any personal data you obtain from them. Please refer to the DPA for more information on personal data.

- Term and Termination
5.1. Term. This Agreement commences when you sign up and accept these Terms, until the end of your subscription or the trial period.
5.2. Termination by Customer. You may at any time terminate your subscription or trial account. Such termination does not relieve you of any obligation to pay any outstanding fees, and neither does it grant you the right of refund for any prepaid fees.

We may assign all rights and/or obligations under this Agreement without your written approval provided such assignment is part of a transfer of all activities and/or assets of our business.
6.3. Force Majeure. Neither party shall be deemed to be in default when performance of the obligations of such party is prevented or made unreasonably burdensome due to any cause which was beyond the reasonable control of such party and which such party could not reasonably be expected to have foreseen, avoided or overcome at the time of entering into the Agreement, including but not limited to any event attributable to natural disasters and severe weather; embargoes; faulty, lack of or delayed of deliveries from suppliers or third parties; interruption or other failure of power, water, internet connection or other utilities; war and acts of war; terrorism; general strikes and other similar events affecting the activities of a party, provided, however, that the party suffering the force majeure event as soon as possible informs the other party thereof giving details of the force majeure cause and its expected duration and implication for the party’s performance.

This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between us regarding your use of the Services and the subject matter hereof, and this supersedes any prior agreements we have whether written or oral. However, should at any point we enter into a subscription contract with the Platform herein as the subject matter, such agreement shall supersede this Agreement, or if applicable, it shall constitute as the main contract and this Agreement becomes part and parcel of it.
