7. Terms of Use for the SmartD Technical Support Portal (the “Support Portal”)

The following Terms of Use apply specifically to the Support Portal in addition to the other Terms and Conditions of Use listed on this page.

7.1 Eligibility

The Support Portal is intended for active users and resellers of SmartD products with valid Product warranties or Maintenance and Support Contract (see Terms and Conditions of Sale and Limited Equipment Warranty page).

If you do not meet these eligibility criteria, we reserve the right to ignore your Support request and/or terminate your Support Portal account.

7.2 Description of Services

The Support Portal provides technical assistance and support for SmartD products. It is not intended to provide sales or pre-sales support: please contact us through our form for this type of support. Indicatively, our support staff may:

  • provide general product information and provide installation and configuration support;
  • collect technical problem identification information to help you identify the problem (hardware, operating system, installation/configuration, documentation, program extension, software) and isolate Product defects from other types of technical problems;
  • define an action plan for Issue resolution;
  • resolve hardware, operating system, installation/configuration, and documentation problems; and
  • resolve lower and mid-complexity program extension (custom scripting) problems;
  • Develop patches, work-around, bug fixes and other SmartD Software modifications required to address or fix as soon as possible any priority SmartD Support Issues; and provide in as timely fashion as possible new releases to correct such Issues, and any less important errors, in order to restore full functionality to the Product, such that it performs as set forth in the User Guide.
  • Provide replacements for defective Products if required as described in the Limited Warranty, and ship said replacements to the purchaser.

Note that support is only offered for the current firmware release and for all preceding releases up to twelve (12) months prior.

Unless documented in a separate agreement, SmartD makes no warranty as to the timeliness of its responses, completeness of its responses or accuracy of its responses to support requests raised in the Support Portal.

7.3 Additional Conditions of Use

In addition to the Conditions of Use listed in 3, you agree to:

  • not impersonate any person or entity, or provide false information while using the portal;
  • maintain the confidentiality of any login credentials provided to you and to remain responsible for all activities that occur under your account.

7.4 Privacy Policy, User-Generated Content, and Feedback

The Support Portal is subject to our privacy practices as indicated in our Privacy Center.

Note however that if you submit any content to the Support Portal, you grant us a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free license to use, modify, reproduce, and distribute that content for the purpose of providing you with support services.

Furthermore, you may provide suggestions, comments, or other feedback (“Feedback”) to SmartD with respect to our Software and/or our Product through the Support Portal. By doing so, you understand and agree that:

(i) Feedback shall be given entirely voluntarily, and you are not required to provide such Feedback to SmartD;

(ii) You will not receive any payment or other compensation from SmartD in consideration of the Feedback; and

(iii) SmartD is under no obligation to use any Feedback you provided. Feedback, even if you designate it as confidential, will not create any confidentiality obligation for SmartD without a separate written agreement. Furthermore, except as otherwise provided herein or in a separate subsequent written agreement between you and SmartD, SmartD will be free to use, disclose, reproduce, license, or otherwise distribute, and exploit the Feedback as it sees fit, entirely without obligation or restriction of any kind on account of intellectual property rights or otherwise.

7.5 Termination

We reserve the right to terminate your access to the Support Portal, with or without cause, at any time and without prior notice. You may also terminate your account at any time by following the steps directly in the Support Portal.

8. General

If at any time we should fail to require compliance with any portion of these Terms of Use, this will not prevent us from requiring you to do so in the future, nor will a waiver of any breach or default of these Terms of Use or of any provision of these Terms of Use constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach or default or a waiver of enforcement of the provision itself.

If any part of these Terms of Use is found by a court or other competent authority to be invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to affect the remainder of these Terms of Use.

We may assign, transfer or subcontract any of our rights or obligations under these Terms of Use to any third party. You may only assign or transfer your rights or obligations under these terms of use to a third party with our express written consent.

These Terms of Use shall be governed by the laws of Quebec, Canada, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. To the extent that any legal action or proceeding is permitted hereunder, any dispute arising out of or relating to these Terms of Use shall be subject to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located in the judicial district of Montreal, Canada.
