In addition, you must provide and are responsible for all equipment necessary to access the Service.
Updates to the Terms of Service: We reserve the right to make changes to these Terms at any time at our sole discretion. If we make changes to these Terms, we will provide notice of such changes by revising the date at the top. Your continued use of our Services following notification of changes will constitute your acceptance of such changes. Please periodically review these Terms and check for any updates.
To access the Services, you will be required to register a “User Account” with us. To use the Client Applications, a user must subscribe to the Services. A User Account and the Services are collectively referred to as a “WPX Account” in these Terms. The user who initially creates the User Account will be the designated “Account Owner”.

If there is a dispute about the designation of the Account Owner or the ownership of a WPX Account, we reserve the right to investigate and determine ownership of the Account, including the identity of the legitimate Company Owner, based on our reasonable judgment.
You agree and acknowledge that if you subscribe to any Service, the subscription fees will be paid regularly on a selected date and, depending on your subscription plan, either monthly or annually. Your services will be renewed automatically due to the subscription payment.

The fees are provided in US dollars and do not include any taxes (such as VAT, sales tax, goods, and services tax, etc.), levies, or duties levied by taxing authorities unless explicitly notified at the time of purchase. Any such taxes must be paid by you, and you agree to defend and hold WPX harmless from any obligations, fines, penalties, or charges levied against us as a result of your failure to do so.
WPX reserves the right to change its Fees at any time. If you do not agree to a Fee change, you may cancel the Services without incurring the changed Fee, but no refund will be given for any Fees you have already paid.
If you obtained a promotional Price, promotional code, or other promotional campaigns, WPX will automatically renew your Services upon the expiration of the promotional Price, promotional code, or other promotional campaigns and charge your payment method at the ordinary (i.e., non-promotional) Fee.
You understand that all information, data, text, software, music, sound, photographs, graphics, video, messages, tags, or other materials, whether publicly posted or privately transmitted ("Client Content"), are the sole responsibility of the person from whom such Client Content originated. This means that you and not WPX, are entirely responsible for all Client Content that you or the End Users upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available on your Client Applications.

To provide the Services, WPX must access and use the Client Content in a variety of ways on your behalf. For the sole and limited purpose of providing you the Services, you hereby grant to WPX a non-exclusive, transferable, sublicensable, worldwide, royalty-free license to access, use, copy, modify, publicly display, publicly perform, reproduce, translate, create derivative works from, and distribute Client Content, in whole or in part.

WPX will exclude archives created by backup plugins installed by the Client, regardless of the archive file extension from the automatic backups;
If you choose to use our Backups, please note that a backup copy may not be available for restoration upon your request due to technical reasons such as an excessive number of files in the backup, backup software failure, storage failure, or corrupted backup files. Therefore, you must keep independent backup copies of your Content in addition to those maintained by us.
We may host your account and the backups of your data in different data center locations. This means that your backups may be stored on servers in a different state, country, or continent. In case of emergencies, your backups may be restored on servers outside your data center location of choice. All applicable data protection regulations and arrangements in our DPA will be followed in case of offsite data transfer to different locations.
If the Backup service malfunctions, you must notify us through your Client Area and allow us reasonable time to resolve the issue.

WPX will keep backups of terminated accounts for up to 90 days (3 months) from the termination date. Terminated accounts can be restored as described in section 6. 4. a.
Please be aware that our Backups are provided "as-is" and are subject to all limitations of liability set out in these TOS, to the maximum extent applicable under national law, without affecting your rights as a Client.
