For further details, please feel free to write to firstname.lastname@example.org. We maintain summary documents including a personal data registry and our risk management procedures.
ACCESS TO SERVICES
The Services are accessible only to professionals under the French law, having entered into a agreement with KeeeX according to the current terms and conditions of use plus further particular terms as required by the consumed service.
The Services are not available to non professional individuals. Notably, any natural person wishing to subscribe to an individual Service, for strictly private use, outside of any professional function, permanently or occasionally, directly or indirectly, is considered as such.
KeeeX reserves the right to assess, at any time and on a discretionary basis, the nature of the usage of the Services and to determine whether they obey the terms of the Contract, and to discontinue, suspend or terminate any use of the Services that does not meet the conditions set by KeeeX for professional use of the Services. In addition, KeeeX reserves the right to offer Services with different terms and conditions depending on whether they are offered free of charge or for a fee.
Any professional must agree to subscribe to the services based on terms negotiated with KeeeX.
In order to allow the service to be used properly and to meet legal obligations, You agree, for any use of the Service, to provide true, accurate, precise, current and complete information about You, as per KeeeX request (this information constituting the “Registration Data”), and You commit throughout the service’s usage period, to quickly retain and update your Registration Data to meet the above requirements or to report any changes to KeeeX, email@example.com. Please note again that KeeeX shall never ask for personal information beyond what is strictly required for operating the Service.
You are responsible for the confidentiality and difficulty of your password, account, or any other identification or secrecy requested by the Services and are fully responsible for any activity that occurs under your password or account.
Your membership status is only for your personal use and You agree to make personal use of the Service. You can’t allow other people to use your account. You cannot either use the Service under your personal account for shared corporate group operations, even if a paid license has been signed. This kind of use requires obtaining a specific license dedicated to this activity.
To use the Service and Software, in almost all business situations, end-users are not required to complete a registration process. However, in some cases You may be asked to do so. KeeeX will use all or part of this Registration Data to generate your unique KeeeX ID and/or digital identity based on a pair of keys. This identity will represent you when You process documents, or get in touch with other KeeeX users. A registration can request your first name, name and email address, or valid phone in strict compliancewith the constraints of RGPD, hence for the sole need of access to the service. Alternate registration procedures may be offered using, for example, an account ID offered by another operator, or a connection via a company SSO. Fully anonymous connection arrangements may be offered for certain services as long as your identification is not necessary for the provision of the service, in accordance with the rules of the RGPD and within legal limits.
If necessary, your application for registration can be evaluated by KeeeX, which can, at its sole discretion and without prior notification, immediately remove Your Service usage rights and the Software license as long as KeeeX finds, among other things, that your Registration Data is not accurate, not up-to-date or incomplete or unprecise, or if this data does not allow KeeeX for providing the Service.
You can register your account as a business account, as part of an organization (the “Organization”), which has its own administrators. Administrators may have the right to view, suspend, and monitor your account usage statistics, and any content that is accessible to them via an admin console.
An administrator must also have a KeeeX account, and multiple Administrator accounts can be created in an Organization. It is the Administrator, not KeeeX, who is responsible for the internal management or administration of the Service, with respect to passwords, authentication password phrases and shared secret storages if the Organization’s policy stipulates.
