Terms of Use

separator

Please read these terms of use (the “Terms”) carefully before using the websites of ATESE S.A. and its subsidiaries (collectively “ATESE”).  By accessing, browsing or using these websites, you acknowledge that you have read, understood and agree to be bound by these Terms and to comply with all applicable laws and regulations, including export and re-export control laws and regulations. If you do not agree to these Terms, you are not authorized to use these websites. These Terms govern your use of the websites, any content (such as text, data, information, software, graphics or photographs) that may make available through the websites (collectively, “Materials”) and any services that ATESE may provide through the websites (collectively, “Services”). The websites, Materials and Services are referred to in these terms collectively as the “ATESE Websites.”

ATESE reserves the right to change these Terms from time to time without notice in its sole and absolute discretion. Additional or different Terms, conditions and notices may apply to specific materials, information, products, software or services offered through the ATESE Websites. In the event of any conflict, such additional or different terms, conditions and notices will prevail over these Terms. Please see the applicable agreement or notice.

These Terms, together with any additional terms to which you agree when using particular elements of the ATESE Websites, constitute the entire and exclusive and final statement of the agreement between you and ATESE with respect to the subject matter hereof, superseding any prior agreements or negotiations between you and ATESE with respect to such subject matter. These Terms and the relationship between you and ATESE shall be governed by the Greek laws as applied to agreements made, entered into and performed entirely in Greece by Greek residents, notwithstanding your actual place of residence. These Terms shall remain in full force and effect notwithstanding any termination of your use of the ATESE Websites. These Terms will be interpreted without application of any strict construction in favor of or against you or ATESE. These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by ATESE without restriction.

Use of Software

To the extent that ATESE provides for the download of proprietary ATESE software or open source software from ATESE’s Websites (“Software”), such Software is protected by the applicable copyright, patent or other intellectual property rights of either ATESE or the third party licensor. Any use of the Software is subject to the terms of the applicable end-user or open source license agreement.

All evaluation Software is provided “AS IS” for evaluation and internal use only.  You may not use evaluation Software for commercial, development or production purposes.  In addition, evaluation Software may be time-disabled and may cease to operate after a period of time.

Trademarks

ATESE reserves all rights to its trademarks, service marks and logos, which together with the trademarks, service marks and logos of subsidiaries of ATESE will be collectively referred to as “ATESE Marks.” 

The ATESE Marks are highly valued intellectual property, and therefore ATESE will take the necessary steps to guard against dilution and the use of third-party marks which are confusingly similar to ATESE Marks or which are likely to cause confusion with ATESE Marks.

No employee or other representative of ATESE is authorized to grant permission to use ATESE Marks or to provide guidance in their use, unless licensed within a formal written agreement.  Thus, any promise or other representation with respect to ATESE Marks by a ATESE employee in the absence of a formal written agreement cannot be relied upon.

ATESE does not object to the use of the ATESE Marks (other than logos) to refer specifically to the products of ATESE.  However, a purely referential use or nominative fair use of the ATESE Marks must be in plain text.  Qualified legal counsel should be consulted in order to distinguish a referential use from an infringing use.

Anti-Piracy/License Compliance

ATESE protects its technology vigilantly and permits others to use it by virtue of license agreements.  The use or distribution of ATESE software without permission from ATESE is software piracy.  ATESE distributes and sells its product through a channel network of distributors and resellers worldwide.  ATESE does not distribute or sell its product through unauthorized channels such as auctions, peer-to-peer networking, or through illegal download sites offering key or serial number generators.  If you are contemplating or have obtained ATESE software through one of these avenues, you likely will find yourself with pirated software.  Please contact ATESE here for assistance with your own or another’s unauthorized use of ATESE software. 

ATESE also understands that some customers may have challenges with managing their software licenses.  In these instances, ATESE’s License Compliance team may assist by reviewing deployment records and reconciling them with ATESE’s internal entitlement records.  The goal of this program is to educate ATESE’s customers on the terms of their licenses with ATESE and to bring the entitlement records in line with usage.  Please contact ATESE’s License Compliance team with questions or issues about your company’s usage at info@atese.gr.
