These Terms of Service cover and describe your use of our products, services, and website. If you use our products, either as a paying customer, reseller, or trial customer, you are giving your acknowledgement and acceptance of these TOS.

Description of service
The StratoQ service refers to any of the associated products created and maintained by PDXware. This can refer to the stratoq.com or country-specific websites, the embedded application that runs on the touch-panel of a copier or MFD, or any other StratoQ-branded installed software provided by PDXware.
In some cases StratoQ will connect to an outside service (such as Google’s G Suite) on behalf of the user to facilitate printing of documents or scanning. PDXware is not responsible for the data exchanged with these applications, and it is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that no agreement is breached with those third-party applications by using StratoQ.
Obligations of Customer
StratoQ provides end users access to their data (including print jobs, stored files on third-party systems, and internal account information) via the SDKs of various MFD hardware manufacturers. While we strive to make this access as secure as possible, it is ultimately the customer’s responsibility to secure access to those devices themselves, as well as to the third-party systems StratoQ interacts with.
We will offer and recommend configurations which maximize the security of this data. These recommendations are available through our manufacturer-specific Security Recommendations KB articles. PDXware is not responsible for any loss of data or any unauthorized access to data if the customer chooses not to enable our security features and/or fails to secure administrative access to the MFD or internal network or otherwise fails to follow PDXware’s recommendations. While we strive to make our application as secure as possible, we cannot guarantee 100% security, even if all recommendations are followed.
PDXware does not directly sell any products or services to end-users or customers. PDXware is not subject to any terms or provisions of the agreement made between the customer and the reseller.
PDXware may need to discontinue or change one of our services due to outside security considerations, changes to the device SDKs, or changes to the APIs of the third-party applications we integrate with.
In some cases PDXware may decide to significantly change the services provided for other reasons. In these cases, a 3-month notice period will be given.
Limitation of Liability
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL PDXWARE, ITS AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SUPPLIERS OR LICENSORS BE LIABLE FOR (A): ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, COVER OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS, REVENUE, GOODWILL, USE OR CONTENT) HOWEVER CAUSED, UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, CONTRACT, TORT, WARRANTY, NEGLIGENCE OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF PDXWARE HAS BEEN ADVISED AS TO THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

THE LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS ALSO APPLY IF THIS REMEDY DOES NOT FULLY COMPENSATE YOU FOR ANY LOSSES OR FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR OTHER DAMAGES. IN SUCH AN EVENT THIS LIMITATION WILL NOT APPLY TO YOU TO THE EXTENT PROHIBITED BY LAW.
Customer will indemnify, defend and hold harmless PDXWARE from and against all liabilities, damages and costs (including settlement costs and reasonable attorneys' fees) arising out of any claim by a third party against PDXWARE and its affiliates regarding: (i) Customer Data; (ii) Customer's use of the Services in violation of this Agreement; or (iii) End Users' use of the Services in violation of this Agreement.
