No contract will come into force between the Provider and the Customer unless and until the Provider accepts the Customer's order in accordance with the procedure detailed in this Clause 3.
3.3. In order to enter into the Agreement, the Customer must take the following steps:
- the Customer must create an account using the Platform by supplying an email address and password;
- once the Customer is logged in, the Customer must update their personal details, and consent to the terms of the Agreement;
- after an account has been created, the Provider will send to the Customer an initial acknowledgement (at which point the Agreement will come into force).
3.4. If the Customer has subscribed for Services under a Free Plan, once the Agreement is in force the Customer's subscription for the Services under the Free Plan will commence and will continue until the Customer upgrades its Subscription Plan to a Chargeable Plan in accordance with Clause 4.2 or the Agreement is terminated in accordance with Clause 14 (whichever occurs first).
3.5. If the Customer has subscribed for Services under a Chargeable Plan, once the Agreement is in force, the Customer's subscription for the Services will commence and will continue to renew automatically on each applicable Anniversary Date, unless terminated in accordance with Clause 14.

unless the Provider or the Customer terminates earlier in accordance with Clause 14. The fixed Charges for the next month or year (as applicable) become payable on each Anniversary Date and (except in accordance with Clause 2, 5.1 or 14.3) will not be waived or refunded if the Customer terminates its subscription on or after that Anniversary Date. The Customer should set its own reminders in advance of each upcoming Anniversary Date. The Provider will only send a reminder of an upcoming Anniversary Date if the Customer is paying Charges on an annual basis.
4. The Platform
4.1. The Platform will automatically generate an account for the Customer enabling the Customer to access the Platform. In connection with its account, the Customer will have selected either a standard plan (which may be either a free plan or a chargeable plan), or agreed with FileInvite a custom plan, (as outlined on the Pricing Page) for a subscription to use the Services ("Subscription Plan"). In addition to Charges, the Subscription Plan may:
- include usage limits and/or restrictions for the Customer's use of the Services, such as in relation to the number of permitted users and invites/requests or portals that may be sent;
- specify particular features (including security features), functionality, configurations, integrations and/or versions of the Platform which will or will not be provided as part of the Services under the particular Subscription Plan; and/or
- specify details of the support and/or service levels which will or will not be provided under the particular Subscription Plan.
4.2. The Provider may update the details and terms applicable to the Subscription Plans (including as to the matters described in Clauses 4.1a to 4.1c) from time to time by notifying the Customer ("Plan Change Notification") and publishing the updated Subscription Plan details and terms on the Pricing Page. Where the updates relate to Charges, for the Customer these will be applied in accordance with Clause 7.5. Where the updates relate to other details or terms applicable to:
- a Free Plan, the updates will be applied for the Customer immediately upon the Plan Change Notification being given; and
- a Chargeable Plan, the updates will be applied for the Customer from the first Anniversary Date after the Plan Change Notification is given (or, if that Anniversary Date is within 30 days of the Plan Change Notification being given, the second Anniversary Date after the Plan Change Notification is given), unless the Customer elects to change its Subscription Plan before then (in which case the updates will be applied from the effective date of the change to Subscription Plan).
4.3. The Customer may upgrade or downgrade its Subscription Plan to a different Subscription Plan by contacting the Provider or following any applicable plan upgrade or downgrade procedure on the Platform. Any requests to upgrade a Subscription Plan will be effected as soon as reasonably possible, provided that the Customer acknowledges that it may be required to pay additional Charges before the upgrade is effected. Any requests to downgrade the Subscription Plan must be made at least 7 days prior to the next Anniversary Date and will be applied from that Anniversary Date.

The licence granted by the Provider to the Customer under Clause 4.4 is subject to the Customer and its users complying at all times with the terms of the Acceptable Use Policy and limiting its use of the Services to the relevant usage limits and/or restrictions specified in the Customer's current Subscription Plan. The Customer must ensure that all users of the Platform agree to and comply with the terms of that Acceptable Use Policy. If the Customer's use of the Services exceeds any applicable usage limits and/or restrictions under the Customer's current Subscription Plan, the Provider may contact the Customer to arrange an upgrade to a new Subscription Plan and/or impose technical limitations or restrictions on the Customer's use of the Services to prevent a reoccurrence of such excess usage.
4.6. Except to the extent mandated by applicable law or expressly permitted in the Agreement, the licence granted by the Provider to the Customer under this Clause 4 is subject to the following prohibitions:

- the Customer must not frame or otherwise re-publish or re-distribute the Platform; and
- the Customer must not alter or adapt or edit the Platform or the Services save as expressly permitted by the Documentation.

The Customer also must not use or copy any Provider Branding other than in connection with its use of the Platform in accordance with the Agreement.

5. Upgrades and Maintenance
5.1. During the Term the Provider may apply Upgrades to the Platform. Such Upgrades may result in changes the appearance and/or functionality of the Platform. If the Customer does not wish to continue using the Services as a result, the Customer may terminate its subscription in accordance with Clause 14. If the changes materially reduce the functionality of the Platform and the Customer expressly terminates for this reason (by advising the Provider of the reason in the Customer's notice of termination) and has paid Charges for a subscription that is due to expire after the effective date of termination, the Provider will then refund the unexpired portion of the Customer’s subscription payment within 30 days of such termination.
5.2. The Provider may from time to time suspend access to the Platform in order to carry out scheduled maintenance or Upgrades.
