ISMS.online and demonstration platform access terms
Version 1.1 commercial in confidence
The Purpose behind sharing the ISMS.online and opexo demonstration service (THE DEMO SERVICE) is that it leads towards a mutually beneficial outcome for you and us. These terms are specifically in place for you and relevant user/s to access the service for your demonstration activity or evaluating specific parts of the service as agreed with Alliantist.
The terms below are in addition to any other terms you have agreed with Alliantist such as partnering go to market referral & reseller terms and non-disclosure agreements. These terms avoid you needing to accept the end user terms and follow the registration workflow each time you use THE DEMO SERVICE.
You accept that the service holds valuable IPR of Alliantist, commercial in confidence information and other valuable assets. Any copying, downloading, decompiling for the purpose of your sole commercial gain is strictly prohibited. The service is monitored for performance and security reasons.
Whilst we mention the processing of personal data in the main terms below, we recommend you do not put real personal data or your other valuable information into the platform as the content is used just for demonstration and evaluation purposes. You can add to and change work on the platform as part of your demonstration activity e.g. showing its ease of use to others, but please remember that the service is reset every night so anything you do will be deleted later! Remember that THE DEMO SERVICE is not configured to send emails so anything like new users welcome emails, password resets and notifications will deliberately not be sent because all the named users on the service are fake and should remain that way.
If you want to:
• Customise a demonstration for your ongoing use then speak with your ISMS.online account manager who will explain the options around building your own custom demonstration scenarios and saving them.
• Conduct multiple demonstrations the same day with a clean workspace each time then also speak with your account manager who will agree the process for that with you.
The individual accepting these terms does so on behalf of its organisation and that includes any other users in that organisation who may access the service for the purpose/s above. Therefore please ensure relevant colleagues are aware of these terms and the configuration set up.
THE DEMO SERVICE is powerful cloud software owned and operated by Alliantist and available in various platform options including “ISMS.online” and opexo. The platform option depends on the business purpose of the customer (“the Purpose”) and in this instance, You have been registered to use THE DEMO SERVICE as a result of your organisation’s broader relationship with Alliantist and the goals agreed for that relationship which include referral and or resale of Alliantist products and services.
We may make changes to the terms of this Agreement at any time. We will let You know what these changes are as part of the regular relationship activity. Your responsibility as a Registered User is to make sure that You are aware of them by checking for any changes on a regular basis. Changes will become effective as soon as they are posted. If You continue to use our service after the posting of changes to this Agreement, it means that You accept any such changes.

Engaging with other DEMO SERVICE Registered Users
THE DEMO SERVICE opens up the possibility for engaging with other DEMO SERVICE users in a range of different initiative types and Alliantist encourages debate and the sharing of information between Registered Users.

Please read the following guidelines carefully.
You may not use Alliantist’s communications systems or media for any illegal purpose and in particular, You will not:

engage in any other conduct that restricts or inhibits any other person from using or enjoying THE DEMO SERVICE, or which, in Alliantist’s sole judgment, exposes Alliantist to any liability or detriment of any type.
Intentionally whether by act or omission make false or misleading statements.
Please note that any posting of information is the opinion of the person posting only and in no way reflects Alliantist’s opinions or attitudes. You should not, therefore, rely on information being accurate or complete. If You do, You do so at Your own risk.
Alliantist does not actively monitor the use of any initiatives created by Registered Users however it reserves the right to do so in THE DEMO SERVICE to ensure that The Purpose is being delivered for mutual benefit. Alliantist relies on You to inform Us if You spot any abuse or inappropriate behaviour, in which case we will, subject to agreement with the initiative owner, review specific postings. If You feel You have been threatened, damaged or abused by any content in THE DEMO SERVICE or if You believe any infringement of your rights, or the rights of others, may have occurred through THE DEMO SERVICE please contact THE DEMO SERVICE administrator in the first instances.
Alliantist reserves the right (but is not obliged) to do any or all of the following:
record the communications in THE DEMO SERVICE
investigate a claim that any one or more communication does not conform to the standards and terms of this Agreement and determine in conjunction with the Customer, to remove or request the removal of the communication(s).
remove without notice communications which are abusive, illegal, or disruptive, or that otherwise fail to conform with this Agreement.
If You disagree with a decision of Alliantist, You should email to firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to Your DEMO SERVICE account manager.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Alliantist, its directors, officers, employees, licensors and other ISMS.ONLINE licensees from and against any claim, liability, cost, damage or loss any of us may incur (including reasonable legal fees) as a result of any content that You post or transmit to THE DEMO SERVICE, any actions You take which disrupt access to and/or the functioning of THE DEMO SERVICE or any breach by You of Your obligations under this Agreement.
As a Registered User of THE DEMO SERVICE, You warrant that, in respect of any Personal Data (as defined in the relevant legislation at the time) provided or disclosed or received or recorded by You on THE DEMO SERVICE, that You will only process personal data which You are authorised to do in accordance with Your terms of employment with Your employer and any IT Systems Policy, or similar, and that as a Registered User of THE DEMO SERVICE You (a) will only process that personal data in accordance with the Documentation provided, and the instructions of the Partner organisation, and/or the Customer organisation, and (b) will not do anything with any of the Personal Data (including processing it) other than in accordance with the guidelines in this Agreement,
Your privacy is important to Us. We only mandate that You only have to use a generic demonstration email address to use THE DEMO SERVICE.
However, THE DEMO SERVICE does facilitate collaboration between Users and their organisations, therefore numerous features exist to allow greater sharing. It is up to You (and if applicable Your organisation’s internal policy) on how much You decide to contribute and share. If You complete Your profile facility, it will be viewable by other Registered Users You choose to share it with, but otherwise, Alliantist makes no use of it except for highlighting platform activity that may be relevant to You (and remember that the service is reset each day.)
We use reasonable precautions to keep the information disclosed to us secure. However, we cannot guarantee the security of the information that You disclose to us. You accept the inherent risks of providing information on-line and will not hold us responsible for any breach of security unless this is due to Alliantist’s negligence or willful default.
As a Registered User, You agree to comply with the standards of confidentiality set by Your organisation and the non-disclosure agreement in place between us. For the avoidance of doubt, everything in THE DEMO SERVICE should be considered commercial in confidence unless otherwise visible on the Alliantist ISMS.online website and typically used in other marketing materials.
Termination or Suspension
Should You fail to comply with the Terms of this Agreement, Alliantist has the right, without notice, to either suspend or terminate Your access to THE DEMO SERVICE, and such suspension or termination shall be without prejudice to any legal remedies available to Alliantist.
If any of these provisions is deemed invalid, void or unenforceable that provision will be deemed severable from the rest and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of England and any dispute will be resolved exclusively in the Courts of England PROVIDED THAT each Party shall have the right to enforce a judgment of the English Courts in a jurisdiction in which the other Party is incorporated or in which any assets of the other Party may be situated.
If You have any queries about this agreement or Your access to THE DEMO SERVICE or the processing of Your Personal Data please contact Your account manager.
