External User Terms of Use

IF YOU ARE USING A NETDOCUMENTS SERVICE IN THE COURSE OF YOUR WORK FOR ONE OF NETDOCUMENTS' CUSTOMER ORGANIZATIONS THAT HAS EXECUTED A SERVICE AGREEMENT WITH NETDOCUMENTS THAT IS CURRENTLY IN EFFECT, THESE EXTERNAL USER TERMS OF SERVICE DO NOT APPLY TO YOU.

This External User Terms of Service (these "Terms of Use") states the terms upon which one or more NetDocuments services (collectively, the "Service"), offered by NetDocuments Software, Inc. or one or more of its affiliates (collectively "NetDocuments"), is provided to a user ("External User" or "You") accessing or using the Service at the invitation of a NetDocuments' Customer (as defined below). An External User is a person outside the Customer's organization who is given rights by the Customer to access some or all of the Customer's Service repository.

References to "Customer" mean an organization party to a then-current NetDocuments Service Agreement to use the Service on a fee-paying commercial basis. External User is not a third-party beneficiary of any agreement between NetDocuments and a Customer. As a condition of using the Service, You acknowledge and agree all data, documents, and information in the Service ("Customer Data") will be treated by NetDocuments as if it belongs to, and is controlled by, the Customer. The Customer is solely responsible to inform You of its policies regarding handling of Customer Data, including obtaining consent necessary for using, transferring, and processing Customer Data in accordance with applicable laws.
