If You are accepting on behalf of someone else, You represent and warrant that You have full legal authority to bind that person or entity to these Terms. If You don’t have full legal authority to bind, please ensure that an authorized person from your entity consents to and accepts the terms and conditions.
BY CHECKING THE CHECK BOX PRECEDING “I AGREE TO THE TERMS OF SERVICE”, COMPLETING THE REGISTRATION PROCESS AND/OR USING ANY OF THE PROVIDED SERVICES, YOU ARE STATING THAT YOU ARE ELIGIBLE FOR AN ACCOUNT AND THAT YOU ACCEPT THE AGREEMENT, MEANING THAT YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY ALL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE AGREEMENT AS MENTIONED IN THIS DOCUMENT.
From the moment of acceptance of the agreement, all services that are at your disposal are limited by the type of License that you choose to acquire. It is your responsibility to maintain informed about any modifications of the terms, conditions, and notices contained herein, which you automatically agree to accept if you do not notify Alleviating Science of the contrary within thirty (30) calendar days from the moment that the undesired modification(s) are published on the Aexd.net website. In the case any party (you or Alleviating Science) ends the Agreement, you are no longer allowed to use any of the services provided by Aexd.net (Accelerating experimental design), including the Aexd.net website. The Software is provided ‘as is’ and its use is at your own risk. Thus, although Alleviating Science constantly strives to increase the quality and the number of the services that it provides to the Customer, Alleviating Science cannot be held responsible for any dissatisfaction of the Customer, nor is Alleviating Science liable for economic, physical or any other consequences that result from the use of the Software nor from any Analytical Report generated by it.
THIS LICENSE AGREEMENT REPRESENTS THE ENTIRE AGREEMENT CONCERNING THE USE OF THE Aexd.net WEBSITE BETWEEN YOU AND ALLEVIATING SCIENCE, AND IT SUPERSEDES ANY PRIOR PROPOSAL, REPRESENTATION, OR UNDERSTANDING BETWEEN THE PARTIES.
i. “Account” refers to the entirety of Customer Data and Designs attributed to the Customer, if any. An Account is separate from and independent of a License. Each individual Design is linked to a License under which that Design was created and, upon transferring the License to another Account, is automatically attributed to that other Account.
ii. “Analysis Report” means the resulting analysis and figures generated for an individual Design at Aexd.net/…./Analysis or Aexd.net/…./Surfaces, or any other URL Aexd.net may provide. The number of figures and statistics contained in an Analysis Report varies with the edition of the Service, the type of Design, the validity of the Experimental Results and the License currently in use by the Customer.
iii. “Customer” refers to You, the client of Aexd.net, who, after accepting the terms and conditions described in this document, is entitled to use any of the provided services, limited by the type of License that the Customer has activated (f.i. Free, Student, Commercial Full or Academic Full)
iv. “Customer Data” means any data concerning the characteristics of the Customer and the Account of the Customer. The Customer Data can be provided by the Customer or can be gathered by other means and attributed to the Customer.
v. “Dependent Variables” are quantifiable variables which values depend on the outcome of physical experiments or computational efforts (the Experimental Results). For example, heating costs of a building (Dependent Variable) would depend on temperature differences, time of heating, degree of isolation (Independent Variables). The number of Dependent Variables available to You is determined and limited by the type of License that You have activated.
vi. “Design” refers to the entirety of data describing an individual experimental design, possibly incremented by the Experimental Results that were obtained using the values of the independent variables as calculated by the experimental design, and data used to analyze these results. A Design also includes the collection of settings that together determine how the Processing Software should generate information to be presented to the Customer, for example, the Experimental Planning Scheme in the experimental design definition section at Aexd.net…./Design, and/or the Analysis Reports at Aexd.net/.…/Analysis or Aexd.net/…./Dashboard or any other URL Aexd.net may provide. A customer can create and manage multiple Designs, limited by the type of License that is activated by the Customer.
vii. “Documentation” refers to documents made available to You by Aexd.net, online or otherwise, in digital or paper form, for informational, educational, instructive, legal, recording or any other purpose.
viii. “Experimental Planning Scheme” is a scheme holding values of independent Variables and is generated by the Processing Software. The Customer must assert, or modify higher and lower values of Independent Variables such, that all values of the Independent Variables in the Experimental Planning Scheme are physically possible for each individual Experimental Test. Subsequently, these values should be set for each individual Experimental Test according to the Experimental Planning Scheme when executing the Experimental Tests.
ix. “Experimental Results” are quantified results of Experimental Tests, produced in appliance to the experimental design (Experimental Planning Scheme) and expressed as values of Dependent Variables of each individual experimental test. In order to perform any analysis of the Design, these Experimental Results have to be provided by completion of the ‘Design and results’ table at Aexd.net/…./Design or any other such url provided by Aexd.net.
x. “Experimental Tests” are physical or computational experiments that the Customer should execute, for example, in a laboratory, outdoor field or production process. All tests should be executed using the values of the Independent Variables as determined by the Experimental Planning Scheme.
xii. “Independent Variables” are variables that can be physically and directly adjusted in the process that You desire to analyze and/or optimize. The values of these variables usually influence the outcome of the Experimental Results (and the values of the Dependent Variables). The Customer should assert that the values of Independent Variables for each Experimental Test according to the Experimental Planning Scheme are physically possible. The number of Independent Variables in the Experimental Planning Scheme available to the user is limited by the type of License that is activated by the Customer.
xiii. “License” refers to a virtual object on which the number, quality and availability in time of the Service to the Customer depend. A License can be purchased by You from Aexd.net or can be granted to You by Aexd.net. A License can expire, in which case the Customer can no longer use specific parts of the Service, although the Account of the Customer remains available.
xiv. “Processing Software” means the proprietary or open-source software, made by or contributed to by Aexd.net, and all upgrades to this software, which stores, processes and generates data for each Design, as configuration of the Design, Independent Variables, Experimental Results, an Analysis Report, figures and other digital content, and is necessary to deliver the Service to the Customer. the Processing Software also beholds software with which the Account and (multiple) License(s) of the Customer are administered and that generates any or all content for the Aexd.net website.
xv. “Servers” means the servers controlled by or for Aexd.net or its affiliates and that store Customer Data, Designs, execute the Processing Software and/or serve the Front End Software to the Customer.
xvi. “Service” is the entirety of individual services provided on the Aexd.net website and by Alleviating Science. It beholds, but is not limited to, the creation of an Account, granting of paid or unpaid Licenses, creation of the Experimental Planning Scheme, processing and analyzing the Experimental Results, creation of the Analysis Report and the Dashboard, any and all use of the Processing Software and serving the Front End Software, Documentation and the storage of data relevant to the Service that is either provided by You or generated or collected by Aexd.net.
xvii. “Software” means the Front End Software and the Processing Software.
2. Fees and Services
Subject to Section 3 herein, the Service is provided to You at a cost that is determined by the type of License You wish to acquire, at the moment of the purchase of this License.
