    2. 24sessions makes commercially reasonable efforts to improve the functionality of the SaaS Service and to correct faults/errors.

    4. 24sessions does not accept any responsibility whatsoever for unavailability of the SaaS Service, any other circumstance which may result in the SaaS Service being unavailable.

  • SUPPORT
      1. Support is included in accordance with the SLA, attached to this Agreement as Annex B. 
      2. Customer is responsible for supporting its Authorized User(s) of the SaaS Service. Users may ask 24sessions questions and ask for support regarding the SaaS Service, if this is agreed upon in the SLA. Otherwise, only the designated contact person at Customer can ask questions and ask for support on behalf of the Users.
  • RECORDINGS
      1. The functionality for recording, storing, downloading and deleting video calls can be made available by 24sessions on request by Customer. The costs associated with such recordings (Video Call Recording(s)) are listed under Annex A: Pricing (7.1.4 & 7.1.5) and will be applicable from the date the recording functionality is activated.
      2.  Customer is responsible for compliance with all laws applicable to Customer’s use of the Video Call Recording functionality, such as but not limited to Data Protection Laws and laws and regulations regarding intellectual property rights. 
      3. A file will be created during the (video) call which contains the selected content of the video call between User & Guest.
      4. Video Call Recordings can be stored at 24sessions, or on premise with the Customer. Depending on the type of storage the following applies:
        1. At 24sessions: The file will be encrypted and stored in a designated folder on the cloud server used by 24sessions. The file can be downloaded directly by Authorized Users of the Customer in MP4 format through a secured connection. This storage lasts until the moment the Customer chooses to delete the file or until the Customer terminates the Agreement.
        2. Transferring from 24sessions to external storage:
          1. Transferring of the files to the Customer is done through Customer’s transfer mechanism of choice.
          2. 24sessions will count the transfer as successful once it has initiated the transfer of the file, using the Customer’s transfer mechanism of choice and storage location of choice. 
          3. Due to external factors (such as availability and updates of the Customer’s transfer mechanism and storage location of choice) 24sessions cannot guarantee the successful transfer of the file from 24sessions to the Customer’s storage location of choice. 24sessions therefore offers Customer to keep a back-up of the file(s) in 24sessions encrypted storage, before deleting the file(s) at 24sessions. 24sessions will keep the back-ups with due care and diligence.
          4. Upon request of the Customer, 24sessions can also retain the file(s) in back-up until the Customer has confirmed to 24sessions that a file is transferred successfully. In this situation Customer is fully responsible for quality assurance of the Video Call Recordings and to make sure that this confirmation is correct.
      5. In case Authorized Users use manual recordings (where Authorized Users may start/stop recordings manually in the video call) the source data from 24sessions is leading in identifying when the recording started/stopped.
      6. 24sessions is not liable for any loss / deletion of Video Call Recordings.
      7. 24sessions is not liable for any claims from Users and Guests regarding the Video Call Recordings.
      8. Customer and its User are responsible to inform their Guests that the video call is being recorded and stored, taking into account the information obligations under the Data Protection Laws. 24sessions assumes no responsibility when Customer fails to do so.
      9. Prohibited Use: Customer agrees that it will not use, and will not permit any User or Guest to use, the Services in violation of any 24sessions terms or in a manner that violates applicable laws and regulations, including but not limited to anti-spam, export control, privacy, and anti-terrorism laws and regulations and laws requiring the consent of subjects of audio and video recordings. Customer also agrees to be solely responsible for compliance with all such laws and regulations.
  • CONVERSATION INTELLIGENCE
      1. The functionality for conversation intelligence can be made available by 24sessions on request of Customer. Conversation intelligence converts the recording of a video call into a text file. This text file can be further analysed with optional add-on functionality such as (but not limited to) the 24sessions Goal Tracker that checks if key topics have been discussed in the conversation. Customer can choose to enable further add-on functionality.
      2. The costs associated with conversation intelligence are listed under Annex A: Pricing (7.1.7) and will be applicable from the date the functionality is activated.
      3. In order to utilise this functionality, Customer agrees to the following:
