Please read these Terms and Conditions (“Terms”, “Terms and Conditions”) carefully before using the Gridfox application (the “Service”) operated by Gridfox Limited (“us”, “we”, or “our”).
Gridfox Limited is incorporated and registered in England and Wales with company number 12557867 with registered office at 33 Park Place, Leeds, England, LS1 2RY.
Your access to and use of the Service is conditioned on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all users of the Service.
By registering for a Gridfox Account you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you do not agree with any part of these Terms then you may not access the Service.
Users & Subscriptions
Access to the Service requires a Gridfox Subscription which is billed in advance on a recurring and periodic basis (“Billing Cycle”). Billing Cycles are set on a monthly or annual basis depending on the subscription plan you select when purchasing a Subscription.
Access to and use of the Services is restricted to the specified number of individual Seats permitted under your Subscription. You agree and acknowledge that a Seat login cannot be shared or used by more than one individual. Should Gridfox discover that your use of the Service violates this restriction, Gridfox reserve the right to charge you and you agree to pay for the overuse.
At the end of each Billing Cycle, your Subscription will automatically renew under the exact same conditions unless you cancel it or we cancel it. You may cancel your Subscription renewal by contacting the Gridfox customer support team.
Unless expressly stated otherwise in a separate legally binding agreement, if you received a discount or promotional offer for your Subscription signup, you acknowledge that on renewal of the Subscription the Subscription is charged at the full Subscription cost at the time of renewal.
A valid payment card is required to process the payment for your Subscription. You shall provide Gridfox with accurate and complete billing information. By submitting payment information, you automatically authorise Gridfox Limited to charge all Subscription fees incurred through your Account to any such payment instruments.
Should automatic billing fail to occur for any reason, we may, at our sole discretion, retry to collect and a later and/or suspect or terminate the Account, without notice.
Gridfox may use your Company Names and Logos in case studies, promotional materials, or other write-ups, unless you request otherwise.
Changing the Number of Seats
The number of Seats in your Subscription can be changed at any time during the lifetime of your Subscription. For a monthly Billing Cycle, the new total Seat number is billed on the next renewal payment. For an annual Billing Cycle where the Seat number has increased, a prorated payment for the remaining number of months in the Billing Cycle is taken and the new total Seat number is billed in full on the next renewal payment. For an annual Billing Cycle where the Seat number has decreased, the new total Seat number is billed in full on the next renewal payment.
Gridfox Limited offers a Subscription with a free trial for a limited period of time (“Free Trial”).
At any time and without notice, Gridfox Limited reserves the right to modified the terms and conditions of the Free Trial or cancel the Free Trial offer.
Gridfox Limited, in its sole discretion and at any time, may modify the Subscription fees for the Subscriptions. Any Subscription fee change will become effective at the end of the then-current Billing Cycle.
Gridfox Limited will provide you with a reasonable prior notice of any change in Subscription fees to give you an opportunity to terminate your Subscription before such change becomes effective.
Your continued use of the Service after the Subscription fee change comes into effect constitutes your agreement to pay the modified Subscription fee amount.
Certain refund requests for Subscription may be considered by Gridfox on a case-by-case basis and granted in sole discretion of Gridfox Limited.

Customer data and data protection
You shall own all right, title and interest in and to all of the Customer Data that is not Personal Data and shall have sole responsibility for the legality, reliability, integrity, accuracy and quality of all such Customer Data.
Controller, Processor, Data Subject, Personal Data, Personal Data breach, processing and appropriate technical and organisational measures: as defined in the Data Protection Act 2018.
In the event of any loss or damage to Customer Data, your sole and exclusive remedy against Gridfox shall be for Gridfox to use reasonable commercial endeavours to restore the lost or damaged Customer Data from the latest back-up of such Customer Data maintained by Gridfox or on its behalf.
Both parties will comply with all applicable requirements of the applicable data protection legislation. This is in addition to, and does not relieve, remove or replace, a party’s obligations or rights thereunder.
If Gridfox processes any Personal Data on your behalf when performing its obligations under these terms and conditions, for example in respect of the Customer Data that it is hosting, you are the Controller and Gridfox is the Processor for the purposes of the Data Protection Act 2018. Schedule 1 to these terms and conditions sets out the scope, nature and purpose of processing, the duration of the processing and the types of personal data and categories of data subject.
(i) process that personal data only on the documented written instructions of you unless Gridfox is required by applicable law to process personal data. Where Gridfox is relying on applicable law as the basis for processing personal data, Gridfox shall promptly notify you of this before performing the processing required by the applicable law unless the applicable law prohibits Gridfox from so notifying you;
(ii) be permitted to transfer any personal data outside of the United Kingdom provided the transfer is effected by way of a legally enforceable mechanism for transferring personal data permitted under applicable law from time to time;
(iii) assist you, at your cost, in responding to any request from a data subject and in ensuring compliance with its obligations under applicable data protection legislation with respect to security, breach notifications, impact assessments and consultations with supervisory authorities or regulators;
(iv) notify you without undue delay on becoming aware of a Personal Data breach;
(v) at the written direction of you, delete or return personal data and copies thereof to you on termination of the account unless required by Applicable Law to store the personal data (and for these purposes the term “delete” shall mean to put such data beyond use); and
(vi) maintain complete and accurate records and information to demonstrate its compliance with data protection and immediately inform you if, in the opinion of Gridfox, an instruction infringes applicable data protection legislation.
Without prejudice to the generality of this section, you must ensure that it has all necessary appropriate consents and notices in place to enable lawful transfer of the Personal Data to Gridfox for the duration and purposes of these terms and conditions so that Gridfox may lawfully use, process and transfer the Personal Data in accordance with these terms and conditions on your behalf.
Each party shall ensure that it has in place appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect against unauthorised or unlawful processing of Personal Data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, Personal Data, appropriate to the harm that might result from the unauthorised or unlawful processing or accidental loss, destruction or damage and the nature of the data to be protected, having regard to the state of technological development and the cost of implementing any measures.
By accepting these terms and conditions, you consent to Gridfox appointing Microsoft Corporation (and any group company thereof) as a third-party Processor of Personal Data (including Customer Data) under these terms and conditions. Gridfox confirms that it has entered or (as the case may be) will enter with the third-party Processor into a written agreement substantially on that third party’s standard terms of business and in either case which Gridfox confirms reflect and will continue to reflect the requirements of the Data Protection Act 2018.
These terms and conditions govern your use of the Service and supersede and extinguish all previous agreements, promises, assurances, warranties, representations and understandings between yourself and Gridfox, whether written or oral, relating to its subject matter.
Gridfox may at any time assign, transfer, charge, sub-contract or deal in any other manner with all or any of its rights or obligations under the Contract.
These terms and conditions do not confer any rights on any person or party who is not the Customer pursuant to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999.
The Contract and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of England and Wales.
The courts of England and Wales shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with the Contract or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims).
