Access to and use of the Beta Service is subject to all restrictions, limitations and qualifications applying to use of “Services” under the 8x8 Business Terms and Conditions (located at https://www.8x8.com/terms-and-conditions/business-terms for customers of 8x8 Inc., or https://www.8x8.com/uk/terms-and-conditions/business-terms-270217 for customers of Voicenet Solutions Limited t/a 8x8) (each applicable Terms and Conditions is herein referred to as “Terms and Conditions”), including but not limited to Section 10 (Use Restrictions and Customer Responsibilities), unless your use of “Services” is pursuant to a Service Agreement, in which case any access to and use of the Beta Service is subject to all restrictions, limitations and qualifications in the applicable Service Agreement. You may use the Beta Service solely for testing and evaluation in accordance with their intended purpose and, subject to customary mobile use, primarily at the location set forth in the beta letter provided by 8x8, if applicable.

Absent 8x8’s gross negligence or willful misconduct, 8x8 shall have no liability for any direct, indirect, special or consequential damages, losses or claims arising from the use of or inability to use the Beta Service, even if advised of such possibility.

3. CONFIDENTIALITY. During the term of your access to the Beta Service and for a period of at least three (3) years thereafter, you shall keep all information concerning the Beta Service (the “Confidential Information”) confidential and agree (a) not to make any disclosure of Confidential Information to any third party except with 8x8’s written consent; (b) not to use Confidential Information except for the purpose contemplated by these Beta Terms; and (c) to protect Confidential Information with the same degree of care as Customer uses to protect its own Confidential Information against public disclosure, and in any event no less than reasonable care.
