Acceptable Use Policy

This acceptable use policy sets out the terms between you and us under which you may access our FindandBook service and related services (Services). The Services are provided by Multicom Products Limited, incorporated and registered in England and Wales with company number 02447353, whose registered office is at Fifth Floor, 101 Victoria Street, Bristol, BS1 6PU (we, our or us).

You may only access the Services pursuant to a licence agreement with us, or via an agreement with an approved reseller of the Services, and in accordance with the terms of such agreement and this acceptable use policy. This acceptable use policy applies to all users of our Service and you shall be responsible for procuring that your users comply with the terms of this policy.

Certification

Your use of the Services is conditional on your IT systems being certified by us as being compliant with our certification requirements (Certification Requirements).

Where you enter into an agreement directly with us, we shall complete the certification process as part of the Set-Up (as defined in our licence agreement). If you enter into an agreement with an authorised reseller, we may require you to provide details of your IT systems and connections in order to monitor compliance with our Certification Requirements. We may, on reasonable notice, require you to allow us access to your premises and equipment in order to perform certification tests.

You are responsible for ensuring that your IT systems and equipment and your access to the Services continues to meet our Certification Requirements for the duration of the Services. In the event that we reasonably suspect that you are not in compliance with our Certification Requirements, we have the right to suspend provision of the Services until such time as we are satisfied that you are compliant with the Certification Requirements.

In the event that you access our Services via an authorised reseller, your use of the Services is also conditional on the authorised reseller complying with these Certification Requirements. We may suspend provision of the Services to such reseller and its customers, if it fails to comply with such requirements.

Our Certification Requirements may change from time to time. You will be notified of any such changes at least 30 days prior to the changes taking effect.
