Specifics of technical support services offered by Tenon are available at https://www.tenon.io/documentation/support-policy.php. Additional terms and conditions may apply to your purchase or license of goods or services and to specific portions or features of the Platform (all of which are hereby included within these Terms of Service). If you resell any of Tenon's services as part of a package of services or offerings provided by you to your customers, you will remain solely responsible and liable for all your services. Your use of services, features or products will be governed by such additional terms in addition to these Terms of Service. While Tenon uses commercially reasonable efforts to provide accurate information and services, applicable laws and regulations do change. Therefore information contained on the Sites and/or the features of Tenion.io may not be current, accurate or complete. Because many factors go into the decision-making process of designing a website and everyone's particular circumstances and needs may differ, the Platform is provided for informational purposes only. Tenon cannot ensure or guarantee and does not warrant that your use of the Platform will result in an end product that is compliant, accurate, meet your (or, if applicable, your customer's) particular needs or requirements or that the recommendations, regulations or other information provided by Tenon or other users of the Platform accessible through the interactive features of the Sites is complete, accurate, legally compliant or current.

2. Registration: You must register and create an account to use the Platform. When you register, you will select a user name and password and authorize Tenon (and/or its service providers) to make such credit, employment and investigative inquiries as may be appropriate, including to consumer reporting agencies, to validate registration information you provide, both prior to Tenon authorizing your account and from time to time. You agree you shall:

Once Tenon has validated and set up your account, Tenon will give you a key through which you may access Tenon.io and your Security Credentials (as defined in Section B.3 below). You agree that Tenon may provide your account statements and all messages and notifications to you electronically through the Platform or via email.
3. Changing Your Account Information/Settings/Security Credentials: It is your responsibility to review and update your account information. You may update your account profile, settings and information at any time, for example, to add/ update/ delete credit cards and authorized users at any time through your account. This is especially important with respect to credit card information because credit cards expire periodically. You acknowledge and agree that Tenon will have no liability associated with or arising from your failure to maintain accurate account information or update your authorized users. If Tenon has reasonable grounds to suspect that the information you have provided is or becomes untrue, inaccurate or incomplete, Tenon may suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Platform and/or all or any part of the Platform.
4. Security Credentials: Upon account activation, Tenon will provide you with your access key. You may personalize your access key, user names, IDs, logins, passwords, PINS or other security features (collectively, “Security Credentials”) at any time. If you authorize multiple users to access your account, you must issue each user individual Security Credentials. You are responsible for all account activity and for ensuring that your use of, and/or access to, your account and/or the Platform complies fully with these Terms of Service, including the safety and security of all Security Credentials through which you and your authorized users may access and use the Platform. Anyone accessing your account using Security Credentials issued to or administered by you, including those of any third parties you permit to access the Platform and use the Platform, will be deemed to be an authorized user of your account and you will be responsible for their actions as if they were your own. It is your responsibility to administer Security Credentials only to authorized users, to preserve the confidentiality of and not share your Security Credentials or record them in an insecure manner. Although you must conform to the Security Credentials format designated by the Platform (for example, length and, type of characters) and the Platform may periodically prompt you to change your Security Credentials, you are responsible for issuing, administering, updating and ensuring that proper security measures are in effect with respect to Security Credentials associated with your account. You are also responsible for monitoring, supervising and terminating, when appropriate, the Security Credentials of your authorized users. You must notify Tenon immediately if you need to terminate an individual’s access and/or if you suspect fraudulent or abusive activity. Tenon is not liable for any use of the Platform by such individuals prior to Tenon’s receipt of your termination notice and a reasonable period thereafter. If you so notify us, or if Tenon suspects fraudulent or abusive activity, you agree to cooperate with us in any investigation and to use any preventive measures Tenon prescribes. Use of assigned Security Credentials terminates immediately upon the earlier of inactivity/dormancy, termination of these Terms of Service or an authorized user’s authorization. Tenon may rely upon the instructions, consent given and all action taken through your Security Credentials, without verifying the identity or authority of any person accessing the Platform and using the Platform. You should never share Security Credentials. However if you or your authorized users do share your Security Credentials with anyone, you are responsible for the activities of anyone with whom you share Security Credentials, including all orders placed and fees incurred. You are responsible for ensuring that each authorized user is aware of and complies with these Terms of Service. You are ultimately responsible for the acts and omissions of your authorized users and each individual to whom you have given or who may have gained access through use of your Security Credentials.

However, you should have an alternate means of backing up your data. Tenon shall have neither the obligation to provide data storage services nor any liability for maintenance or destruction of your data at any time.

This may include, without limitation, your IP address, web pages requested or viewed, date and time of the visit, domain type, demographic information and responses to surveys, promotions and advertisements.

These companies, not Tenon, store your credit card information in their databases to process your credit and debit card transactions and bill your credit card. Although Tenon may view the last four digits of your credit card number when it logs onto its payment gateway service provider's portal, Tenon retains and stores only the last four digits of your credit card number in its database. The payment gateway service provider returns a token to Tenon that, along with the last four digits, enables Tenon to identify and validate your account, enable you to edit your account information, validate your identity to bill your account for the orders you place, confirm that your credit card payment has been approved and otherwise to identify you or your users when identification processes are necessary. Tenon does not collect or store any credit card or other financial information.
