By using our services, you agree to the following terms and conditions, and any policies, guidelines or amendments thereto that may be presented to you from time to time (collectively, the "Terms of Service"). We may update the Terms of Service without notice to you, and you are responsible for checking the most current version of the Terms of Service at http://www.atensoftware.com/p10.php.

- Free Trial
New accounts will receive a starting credit as indicated on our website pricing page. Only one free trial per customer is allowed. The free trial credit is non-refundable.
You agree that we may provide you with notices, including those regarding changes to the Terms of Service, by email. You agree to receive all such notices via email, and that we are under no obligation to contact you via other means.
You agree to provide and maintain a valid, regularly checked email address. If your email provider supports whitelists, please whitelist emails from this domain, e.g. *@atensoftware.com.
Our pricing structure may be changed from time to time. Please see our website pricing page for current pricing.
Payment for services must be made in advance by funding your account. See the website for pricing information.
Each processing task may or may not have a fee associated with it. For processing tasks with a fee, your account is temporarily debited when the processing task begins execution. Processing tasks will not be executed if your account has insufficient available credit. If the task completes successfully, then the temporary debit is converted to a permanent debit. Otherwise, the temporary debit is stricken from your account and there is no charge. For example, there is no charge if a processing tasks fails due to a technical error, such as a network timeout or software glitch. There is also no charge if a processing task is skipped.
No refund will be issued if the data is successfully uploaded to the destination server in the correct format, but the recipient does not accept, approve, or process, in whole or in part, the submitted data.
- Task Scheduling
The system uses an automated task scheduler. Although you may manually submit a request for processing a task at any time, the system will decide when to actually execute it. Scheduled (not user-initiated) tasks will be executed on the specified schedule, but the time of day may vary. Generally, scheduled tasks will be run in the early morning hours.
- Proprietary Rights and Content
This service does not and can not affect in any way the Content in your Yahoo! Store(s). However, once retrieved, the Content may be altered, truncated, or deleted to meet conformance requirements before submission to engines.
You may delete your Content from our system at any time. We claim no ownership or control over any Content submitted by you through our service. You or a third party licensor, as appropriate, retain all patent, trademark and copyright to any Content you submit through our service and you are responsible for protecting those rights, as appropriate. While the Content is in our system and/or publicly exported on your store website, we may make your product data searchable, make it available to other engines, or otherwise analyze or syndicate it.
All copyrights and trademarks used in this site and in Content belong to their respective owners. Otherwise, all material in this site is copyright to Aten Software LLC, with all rights reserved.
Processing tasks will be executed according to the user selected schedule on an as available basis. Tasks may fail for various reasons, such as network outages, power outages, server crashes, software flaws, etc. Failures may occur on our server(s), any provider server(s), or any intermediate server(s) or network.
If a scheduled task fails due to a temporary factor (such as network error) then we may, at our discretion, retry the task. No task shall be considered time-sensitive or real-time. However, repeated task failures will be analyzed and promptly corrected.
The debit to your account on the date of the processing task shall constitute the minimum evidence to prove that the processing task was executed successfully. We may, entirely at our option, keep additional records of processing task execution.
- Third-Party Provider Policies
