Terms of Service
mxHERO Terms of Service (TOS)
mxHERO Inc. (“mxHERO”), a Delaware incorporated company located in San Francisco, CA, provides users with an email enhancement service (the “Service”) pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth below (the “ToS”). By accepting these ToS, you enter into a legally binding agreement with mxHERO Inc. (“Agreement”) and agree to respect the ToS and be bound by the Agreement.
Your rights and obligations and all actions contemplated by this Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the United States of America and the State of California, as if the Agreement was a contract wholly entered into and wholly performed within the State of California. You agree that any action to enforce this agreement or any matter relating to Your use of the Service must be brought exclusively in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, or if there is no jurisdiction in such court, then in a state court in San Francisco County, State of California.
DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE
mxHERO provides an email enhancement service (the “Service”). Depending on your domain’s configuration, this service can be used to process inbound, outbound and internal emails. Processing includes but is not limited to: blocking, deleting, altering emails and their content, and filing them intelligently in the customer-defined selected cloud storage service. The intention is to provide clients with a tool that may be useful in enabling security, monitoring, policy and enhancement of client organization email services. mxHERO shall not access, use or copy any client data, but will keep a log of accesses and attempted accesses for audit, compliance and/or cloud-assurance needs.
PERFORMANCE AND UP-TIME
mxHERO leverages Amazon Web Services (AWS) EC2 cloud Platform as a Service (PaaS) for hosting architecture supported by Amazon Web Services (AWS) infrastructure including redundancy instances. As such, mxHERO will use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure up-time performance available with an Instance-Level Uptime Percentage of at least 99.5%, in each case during any monthly billing cycle (the “Instance-Level SLA”). Historical averages regarding uptime performance indicate greater than 99.5% up-time performance (e.g. 99.99% performance) based on historical performance. mxHERO is not-responsible for AWS infrastructure outages or outages which may be the result of force majeure events outside of mxHERO control. To preclude client email processing impacts, mxHERO is designed to ‘repeat’ email processing for a period of n=10 minutes during any processing event failure. If after ten (10) minutes mxHERO is unable to invoke processing rules against an inbound, at-rest or outbound email payload, mxHERO revokes the rule-based processing via Mail2Cloud allowing email to flow uninterrupted for mxHERO customers. Upon service restoration, mxHERO then pre-processes any emails for the event period and continues with normal processing. This ‘failover’ approach ensures that mxHERO will not cause an email processing outage for customers. mxHERO maintenance windows and up-time performance are available in real-time for customers via: status.mxhero.com
Customers may ‘subscribe’ to the above status.mxhero.com link to receive proactive notifications in the event of scheduled maintenance and/or outages as may apply.
CHANGES TO ToS
mxHERO may from time to time change the ToS and will make any updated or additional terms available to you through the Service. A notice of change to ToS will be posted on the mxHERO web site at least 30 days before new ToS will become effective. You agree that your continued use of the Service after the date on which the new ToS has become effective is to be regarded as an acceptance of the new ToS.
CHANGES TO SERVICE
mxHERO may at any time augment or enhance the Service with new features, with or without prior notice, provided that this will not adversely affect your use of the service.
