2. Use of Service.

The Service enables you to send electronic files or data (“Files”) to the Service infrastructure or to receive Files sent by other Users using the Service. You may access and use the Service on a hosted basis (“Software as a Service” – “SaaS”) and in two ways: (1) You may send Files to others by specifying the e-mail address of the recipient or by using a link created by the Service to the uploaded Files, or (2) You may download Files via the link to the uploaded Files that you receive by e-mail. You acknowledge that the Service is offered as a file sharing platform between current or prospective Toradex customers and Toradex and is completely free of charge.

Files are stored on the Service infrastructure and servers for the period as specified with the uploading of the Files. After the specified period or, alternatively, after a maximum period of one year Files are permanently deleted.

You guarantee (i) that you have permission to upload the Files on the Service infrastructure and (ii) that you have permission to grant Users to whom you send the link to the Files.
