By accessing and using the Services, Users agree to being bound by these TOS. Should any User disagree with any part of the present TOS, User may not use the Services.
The following expressions in the TOS have the meaning indicated in this section:
Content : Content is defined as any data, regardless of nature (whether information, image, video, audio, file, sign, text, signal, program, software, code, or any other element) which is available (displayed and/or downloadable) through the Services platform. User Content is a specific type of Content.
Services: Twake, a secure open source collaboration platform focused on privacy, security and digital sovereignty, which notably includes Team messaging, Storage space, Team calendar, and Task management features.
User: An User means YOU as an individual, whether acting on your own account or on the behalf of any organization (company, association, or other) which requires you to access or use the Services in a professional context. When accessing and/or using Service features or purchasing a subscription to the Services on behalf of an organization, said organization is also considered to be a User, and, as such, is fully subject to the present TOS.
User Content: User Content is defined as Content which is directly or indirectly emitted, designed and/or created by a User, and uploaded to and/or broadcast through the Services platform.
By accessing and/or using the Services and their features, Users are signifying their understanding as well as their irrevocable and complete acceptance of the Terms of Service applicable at the time of such Services access and/or use.

In any breach case incurring suspension or termination of the Services, User is not entitled to any refund by LINAGORA.
