This document describes in detail your rights and our rights relating to the provision of the EDEN Service, so please review these Terms carefully.
What Are the Terms of Service?
What Is the EDEN Service?
The EDEN Software and other products, services and websites hosted or made available by EDEN, including our downloadable applications, App Center, User Forum, and Help & Learning are collectively referred to in these Terms as the “EDEN Service.” In exchange for being enabled to use the EDEN Service, you agree to abide by these Terms.
If This Is a Contract, Who Are the Parties?
You, the Account Holder, are one party to this contract. (An Account Holder is the person or entity who has contracted with EDEN.)
If you reside in the United States or Canada, then the other party to this contract is EDEN Corporation, a corporation headquartered in California. If you reside in Brazil, then the other party to this contract is EDEN do Brasil Serviços de Aplicações Ltda., a company headquartered in the city of São Paulo, State of Sao Paolo, Brazil (“EDEN Brasil”). If you reside outside of the United States, Canada and Brazil, then the other party to this contract is EDEN GmbH, a company headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland. (EDEN Corporation, EDEN GmbH and EDEN Brasil, as applicable, may be referred to in these Terms of Service as “EDEN,” “we” and sometimes “us”).
On some occasions, you may be purchasing products or service subscriptions from an authorized reseller. Please review our Commercial Terms for information about additional contract terms relating to such purchases.
Is This the Only Contract I Have with EDEN?
It depends upon how you interact with the EDEN Service and our software applications. If you install any EDEN Software on your computing devices, you may be asked to agree to an end user license agreement. If you pay for an EDEN subscription, you will be asked to agree to the Commercial Terms. If you use related EDEN products or services (such as EDEN Teams) or participate in our User Forum, you may also need to enter into a separate agreement with us (usually by clicking “accept” or “agree”). We refer to each of these as a “Separate Agreement.” If that happens, the Separate Agreement shall take precedence if there is a conflict between those terms and this Terms of Service document, to the extent of such conflict and with respect to the particular subject matter of that Separate Agreement.
Will These Terms of Service Ever Change?
These Terms may be amended as new features, technology, or legal requirements arise, so please check back from time to time. If we make a significant change, we’ll notify you and, where required, seek your consent.
If we do update these Terms, you are free to decide whether to accept the updated terms or to stop using the EDEN Service (see “How is My Account Closed” below); your continued use of the EDEN Service after the effectiveness of that update will be deemed to represent your agreement with, and consent to be bound by, the new Terms. Except for changes made by us as described here, no other amendment or modification of these Terms shall be effective unless set forth in a written agreement expressly amending these Terms and bearing a written signature by you and us. For clarity, email or other communications will not constitute an effective written agreement for this purpose.
What Do I Have to do to Use the EDEN Service?
First, you need to create an EDEN Service account. You create an account by providing us with an email address and creating a password. (Some older accounts also required a username.) We refer to this as your “Basic Subscriber Information”. We encourage you to use a distinct and non-obvious password that is different from passwords you use for any other service. You are responsible for maintaining the accuracy, completeness and confidentiality of your Basic Subscriber Information, and you will be responsible for all activities that occur under your account, including activities of others to whom you have provided your Basic Subscriber Information. We will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to provide us with accurate information or to keep your Basic Subscriber Information secure. If you discover any unauthorized use of your Basic Subscriber Information or suspect that anyone may be able to access your private Content without authorization, you should immediately change your password and notify our Customer Support team.
Second, you will need to access your account through a web browser or by installing our client software on your computers, tablets and phones. Obtaining those devices and paying for their connectivity and data plans is your responsibility. EDEN also has no responsibility for the availability of the Internet and other telecommunication services necessary to access the EDEN Service.
Can I Share My Account with Someone Else?
EDEN Service accounts should not be shared. If you share your Basic Subscriber Information with anyone, that other person may be able to take control of the account, and we may not be able to determine who is the proper Account Holder. We will not have any liability to you (or anyone you share your Basic Subscriber Information with) as a result of your or their actions under those circumstances. Since you may use a free EDEN Service account, and since we provide a number of mechanisms to allow you to share your account Content with others, we strongly urge you not to share your information with anyone, unless you are doing so as part of your estate planning purposes, as discussed below.
Once I Have an Account, What Are My Rights in the EDEN Service?
Once your account is created and you accept these Terms, we grant you a limited, non-exclusive license to use the EDEN Service subject to these Terms, for so long as you are not barred from receiving the EDEN Service under the laws applicable to you, until you close your account voluntarily or until we close your account pursuant to these Terms. In addition, we grant you a personal, worldwide, royalty-free, non-assignable and non-exclusive license to use the EDEN Software provided to you by or on behalf of EDEN, for the sole purpose of enabling you to use the EDEN Software and enjoy the benefit of the EDEN Service, subject to any applicable license terms provided with the EDEN Software and these Terms, until your rights are terminated in accordance with such license and/or these Terms. You do not obtain any other right or interest in EDEN or the EDEN Service.
EDEN’s Data Protection Laws Say My Data Is Mine – What Does That Mean?
You retain copyright and any other rights you already held in your Content before you submitted, posted or displayed it on or through the EDEN Service. But you do have to grant EDEN a limited license, as described below, so we can make your data accessible and usable on the EDEN Service. Other than this limited license and other rights you grant in these Terms, EDEN acknowledges and agrees that we do not obtain any right, title or interest from you under these Terms in any of your Content.
What Is the License I Have to Grant to EDEN?
In order to enable EDEN to operate the EDEN Service, we must obtain from you certain limited license rights to process your Content that is covered by intellectual property rights so that technical actions we take in operating the EDEN Service are not considered legal violations. For example, copyright laws could prevent us from processing, maintaining, storing, backing-up and distributing certain Content, unless you give us these rights. Accordingly, by using the EDEN Service and uploading Content, you are granting EDEN a license to display, perform and distribute your Content and to modify (for technical purposes, e.g., making sure content is viewable on smartphones as well as computers and other devices) and reproduce such Content to enable EDEN to operate the EDEN Service. You also agree that EDEN has the right to elect not to accept, post, store, display, publish or transmit any Content in our sole discretion.

If you elect to use any third-party service or application that is integrated with EDEN, you also agree that the licenses granted to EDEN in the preceding paragraph shall apply to Content that is submitted or uploaded through such third-party service or application. If the third-party service or application you elect to use would access or extract Content, you grant EDEN the right and license to enable third-party access to and extraction of your Content. EDEN does not assume any responsibility for, or liability on account of, the actions or omissions of such third-party applications or service providers.

Finally, you understand and agree that EDEN, in performing the required technical steps to provide the EDEN Service to our users, may make such changes to your Content as are necessary to conform and adapt that Content to the technical requirements of connecting networks, devices, services or media.
What Other Assurances Do I Have to Grant to EDEN?
When you use the EDEN Service to send messages to an email address, to a telephone number via SMS, or through a social media account (e.g., Facebook or LinkedIn) that has not been linked to an EDEN account, EDEN sends such messages on your behalf, and we are relying on your representation to us that you have a direct relationship with the recipient(s) and that you are respecting the legal rights of the recipient(s) not to receive certain kinds of messages (such as harassing messages, unsolicited commercial messages, and unwanted SMS messages). Whenever you send any kind of message to a third party you represent and warrant to EDEN that you are acting within the law and that you have prior consent from the recipient to send them such a message.
Are There Rules about What I Can Do on the EDEN Service?
Yes. Your use of the EDEN Service must be in accordance with these Terms.

You agree to safeguard your password and to keep your Basic Subscriber Information current. You also agree that you will not share your account credentials or give others access to your account. In addition, you understand that all Content created, transmitted, stored or displayed in your account, is your sole responsibility as the person who created the Content or introduced it into the EDEN Service. This applies whether the Content is kept private, shared or transmitted using the EDEN Service or any third-party application or services integrated with the EDEN Service. Our User Guidelines provide more specific details regarding prohibited conduct on the EDEN Service. If we find that any shared Content in your account violates our Terms of Service (including by violating another person’s intellectual property or privacy rights), we reserve the right to un-share or take down such content.
