1. ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS
2. YOUR ACCOUNT
2.1. The Website enables you to create an Account. This Account gives you access to Services and information which would not otherwise be accessible to you. When this Account is combined with other 2020 products and services, it may grant you other privileges (e.g. enabling cloud access to your desktop licenses). You are entirely responsible for how you use your Account. In some situations, your Account can enable you to grant certain rights to others to use or administer a 2020 software license that you purchased. You are entirely responsible for the management of such rights and shall make sure that such users and/or administrators comply with the Terms. 2020 explicitly and specifically disclaims any responsibility or liability resulting from your use of the Account or any rights granted to others.
2.3. If you provide any information that is false, inaccurate, out of date, or incomplete, or 2020 has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is false, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, 2020 may suspend or terminate your Account and refuse any and all current or future use of, or access to, the Services (or any portion thereof).
3. CONFIDENTIALITY OF 2020 INFORMATION
In order to gain access to the Services, you agree to these confidentiality provisions:
3.1. You acknowledge that you may obtain direct access via the Website to certain 2020 confidential information (hereafter “Information” in these Terms). You must hold Information in strict confidence and may provide Information to employees in your organization only on a need-to-know basis. You may use the Information from the Website solely for the purpose of purchasing, maintaining and supporting your 2020 software and services. Title to Information remains with 2020 and its suppliers. You agree, either as an individual or on behalf of your employer, to be bound by the provisions of this Section 3. Furthermore, if you are acting on behalf of your employer, your employer agrees to indemnify you for violations of this Section 3.
3.2. You do not acquire any rights in Information, except the limited right to use Information as described above.
3.3. Any breach of Section 3 will result in irreparable harm to 2020 for which damages would be an inadequate remedy and, therefore, in addition to its rights and remedies otherwise available at law, 2020 will be entitled to equitable relief, including both a preliminary and permanent injunction, if such a breach occurs. You waive any requirement for the posting of a bond or other security if 2020 seeks such an injunction.
3.4. Your obligations regarding Information expire five (5) years after the date of disclosure. Upon termination of the Terms or 2020’s written request, you must cease use of Information and return or destroy all Information.
3.5. The Terms impose no obligation upon you with respect to Information that you can establish by legally sufficient evidence: (a) you possessed, or knew, prior to your receipt from 2020, without an obligation to maintain its confidentiality; (b) is or becomes generally known to the public through no act or omission by you, or otherwise without violation of the Terms; (c) you obtained from a third party who had the right to disclose it, without an obligation to keep such information confidential; (d) you independently developed without the use of Information and without the participation of individuals who have had access to Information, or (e) in response to a valid order by a court or other governmental body, as otherwise required by law, or as necessary to establish the rights of either party under these Terms and as disclosed after prior notice to 2020 adequate to afford 2020 the opportunity to object to the disclosure.
4. YOUR CONDUCT
4.1. You understand that all information, data, text, messages, or other materials (hereafter “Content” in these Terms), whether publicly posted or privately transmitted, are the sole responsibility of the person from whom such Content originated.

Furthermore, you agree not to transmit unsolicited or bulk communications to any Account holder or to any 2020 email address (regardless of whether you use the Services to transmit any such communication).

5.5. All Inventions are deemed to be provided on a non-confidential basis. 2020 is under no obligation to and does not control the Inventions created, provided or uploaded to the Forums.

You must not assign or otherwise transfer the Terms nor any right granted hereunder. Any obligations that expressly or by implication are intended to survive termination will survive.
12.2. The laws of the Province of Quebec (Canada) govern any action related to the Terms. No choice of law rules of any jurisdiction apply. The parties specifically disclaim the U.N.
