3.2.- The USER is committed to using SINNAPS in accordance with the law, this contract and with generally accepted morals and good customs and public order, and to protecting and safekeeping the service and all its elements. The rights acquired through this contract may not at any time be ceded or transferred to a third party, nor may they allow SINNAPS to be used by third parties, aside from in the specially designated cases. In short, use of SINNAPS for any other purpose than the needs given in this contract is strictly forbidden.

Accordingly, the SUPPLIER shall process the data with the single purpose of providing the service that is the object of this contract, maintaining all due confidentiality, not being permitted to communicate the same to third parties, except for the singular purpose of storing or conserving the data in their servers.

This confidentiality obligation shall be met throughout the commercial relationship between the parties until this concludes or is terminated.

6.2.- Access to and usage of SINNAPS is allowed for under the conditions in this contract, notwithstanding any written changes that may be agreed upon by the parties. To the extent permitted by law, the SUPPLIER shall offer no guarantee – either explicitly or implicitly – for the working or results that the USER may obtain by using SINNAPS for any particular purpose other than those detailed in the first clause of this contract. In any case, the USER acknowledges that SINNAPS is a tool that facilitates project management, but not that it guarantees specific results or success.

6.4.- With regard to the data input by the USER into SINNAPS, the SUPPLIER is committed to its safekeeping and storage under the terms detailed in clause 5. In any case, this does not exclude the duty or responsibility of the USER to have a suitable Insurance Policy and to implement and supervise back-up and data recovery systems, wherein the SUPPLIER shall not answer for any direct or indirect damages which the elimination or loss of said data may cause over and above the monetary amount in this contract.
6.5.- The USER is singularly responsible for the information and data they or their workers or collaborators input; they shall answer to third parties for the ownership and legality of the same, most especially that they do not entail an infringement of the company’s rights, nor do they breach legislation in terms of copyright and industrial property, market and competition regulations, honour, privacy rights or personal data protection.
7.- Economic conditions

7.4.- The SUPPLIER shall issue the corresponding invoices for the items and in the periods noted, based on the services contracted.
