  1. Subscription.
    1. Subject to these Terms of Use and the other provisions of the Agreement, Client is hereby acquiring a subscription to use the Product. This subscription and related services are acquired through Veson as an authorized reseller of the Product. Client’s subscription is also subject to the terms of the Microsoft Power BI Service Agreement and related terms (collectively, the “End User Agreement”), copies of which are available at the following sites or successor sites: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/terms-of-service/, http://www.microsoft.com/licensing/contracts and https://aka.ms/ProfessionalServicesDPA, and Client hereby accepts and agrees that it will comply with the End User Agreement.
    2. This subscription is limited to the number of users at Client licensed to use the Veson Product and such other limits on number of users, storage or usage as may be set forth herein or in the Agreement. Client shall not permit usage in excess of such limits. The number of users covered by this subscription refers to the maximum number of individual named users at Client permitted to use the Product. Only named individual users may use the Product, and Client shall not permit usage of a named user’s account by any person other than the named user. Veson may monitor Client’s use of the Product to confirm Client’s compliance with, and to enforce Veson’s rights under, these Terms of Service, and the Product may prohibit use in excess of any applicable limits.

    4. d. Client is responsible for all activity occurring under Client’s Product account. Client shall notify Veson immediately of any unauthorized use of any password or account or any other known or suspected breach of security relating to Client’s account.
  2. Term.
    1. b. Veson may suspend Client’s subscription to the Product or terminate these Terms of Use in the event Client’s usage of the Product adversely impacts usage of the Product by other users or the system on which the Product operates or is otherwise deemed excessive by Veson in its sole judgment. To the extent permitted by Veson’s reseller agreement with Microsoft, Veson will provide Client with written notice before taking any such action and will allow a reasonable period, as determined by Veson, for Client to modify its usage to an acceptable level.
    2. c. If Client fails to pay any amount owed under these Terms of Use when due, Veson may disable the subscription until paid, charge a re-activation fee to restore the subscription, and/or terminate these Terms of Use.
  3. Payments.
    1. The initial fees for the Product subscription, if any, are set forth in the Agreement.
    2. Following the initial 12-month term of these Terms of Use, Product fees are subject to change at any time by Veson with at least 30 days’ prior written notice.
    3. If at any time Client elects to increase any user limit or other limit applicable to the Product subscription, such increase shall take effect on the first day of the first calendar month following Client’s payment of the additional annual fee with respect to such increase (prorated for the number of full calendar months remaining in then-current term).
    4. If at any time Client elects to decrease any user limit or other limit applicable to the Product subscription, such decrease shall take effect upon the commencement of the first 12-month subscription term following such election.
  4. Data Processing and Storage.

  5. Microsoft.
    1. Client understands and agrees that (i) Microsoft may update, modify, increase or decrease the functionality of, release new versions of, or discontinue the Product at any time, including without limitation in a manner that adversely affects or disables the integration of the Product with any product or service of Veson, (ii) Microsoft may disable Client’s subscription for legal or regulatory reasons or as otherwise permitted under the End User Agreement or Veson’s reseller agreement with Microsoft, and (iii) Veson shall not be responsible for nor have any liability or obligation with respect to any update, modification, change to the functionality of, discontinuation, or unavailability of, or errors, viruses, loss of data or other claim, damage, or liability attributable to, the Product.

    2.

    3.
