TurnKey Linux Customer Agreement
This TurnKey Linux Customer Agreement (this "Agreement") contains the terms and conditions that govern your access to and use of the open source software stacks made available by TurnKey Linux Software, Inc. on the Amazon Marketplace as an Amazon Machine Image (the "AMI Stack(s)") as well as the terms and conditions of any support services that you purchase for any of the AMI Stacks and is a legal agreement between TurnKey Linux Software, Inc. ("TurnKey Linux","we,", "us" or "our") and you or the entity you represent ("you"). This Agreement takes effect when you click an "I Accept" button or check box presented with these terms or, if earlier, when you download or use any of the AMI Stacks (the "Effective Date"). If you are entering into this Agreement for an entity, such as the company you work for, you represent to us that you have legal authority to bind that entity.
1. AMI Stacks
The AMI Stacks are provided "as-is" with no warranty from TurnKey Linux. You acknowledge that TurnKey Linux is under no obligation to provide support for any portion of the AMI Stacks for which you have not purchased support.
2. Bundled Support and Backup Services
TurnKey Linux will provide support and backup services and as provided in this Agreement (the "Services") to active users of the specific AMI Stacks that AWS reports to TurnKey Linux you have purchased ("Purchased Stacks") for the period AWS reports you have purchased such support. Active users include customers who have purchased annual subscriptions to a Purchased Stack and also customers who are signed up on an hourly basis and have at least one instance of a Purchased Stack running at the time of a support request. TurnKey may also at its discretion define active users more expansively to include customers who do not have any running instances at the time of a support request.
In order to provide Services TurnKey Linux may implement software within Purchased Stacks that sends encrypted information identifying the AWS instance-id and the product code back to TurnKey Linux's servers. This information will be correlated with the information provided by customers who register for support to identify the specific versions of Purchased Stacks that are associated with a customer account. Support for Purchased Stacks will cover only Amazon instances on which the stack is deployed through the Amazon Marketplace. It will not cover support of the AWS infrastructure or support for the Purchased Stacks running on other infrastructure.
TurnKey Linux will provide at least "Cloud Bronze" and "Backup Standard" level support for Purchased Stacks, as defined on the TurnKey Hub site through which Services are provided. To register for Services customers will need to sign up for a free TurnKey Hub account at https://hub.turnkeylinux.org/ if they don't already have one and provide TurnKey Linux with their Amazon Account ID so their eligibility for support can be determined. After registering for Services support incidents can be submitted through the TurnKey Hub or via email to mailto:email@example.com. Each single unique defect or question about a Purchased Stack will be counted as an incident. TurnKey Linux may change such terms from time to time. Any changes made during a calendar month will be applicable beginning on the first day of the next calendar month.
3. Limitations on Support
TurnKey Linux will have no obligation to provide technical support or may cease providing the Services in the case of or with respect to any incident that is in whole or in part due to, caused by, or resulting from any of the following: (i) a breach by you of this Agreement; (ii)the operational characteristics of the AWS provided hardware, instances,or infrastructure; (iii) any third party products, software, hardware, equipment, content, data or information, and any modifications, improvements, updates, new versions or new releases thereto or thereof, not provided by TurnKey Linux; (v) any AMI Stack other than the most current release thereof made available by TurnKey Linux through the Amazon Marketplace; (vi) use of any AMI Stack after TurnKey Linux has notified you to cease use thereof under this Agreement; or (vii) your negligence, abuse, misapplication, or misuse of the AMI Stacks or the Services.TurnKey Linux will have no liability for any changes required by your hardware or software configuration which may be necessary to use any AMI Stack due to a workaround, error correction, or maintenance release.
4. Fees, Term, and Termination

The term of this Agreement will commence on the Effective Date and will remain in effect until terminated by you or Amazon as per the AWS Customer Agreement or by TurnKey Linux.
