These Terms of Service of AIDAPT S.r.l. (hereinafter also "TOS") are entered into between AIDAPT S.r.l. and the person who has requested the service (the "Client").
AIDAPT and the Client will be referred to in the TOS collectively as. "Parties."
AIDAPT offers the provision of services related to its expertise. including but not limited to, software development, research in IA field, training, and ICT consulting.
The services offered (design, software development, positioning SEO, etc.) and their products (software, websites, web applications, apps for smartphones, datasets, etc.), will be referred to below respectively as the "Services" and "Software".
In summary, the TOS aim to express the following concepts:
The Client acknowledges and accepts the following terms
1.1 These TOS cancel and supersede any other previous agreement entered into between the Parties.
2.1 AIDAPT agrees to complete the work agreed upon with the client by assuming only an obligation of means.
2.2 The Software developed and Services provided by AIDAPT are. provided "as is," without warranties of any kind, express or implied, including but not limited to warranties of merchantability or suitability for a particular purpose.
2.3 In no event shall AIDAPT be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, typical, or consequential (including, but not limited to, loss of data, use or profit; or business interruption) in any way caused and on any assumption of liability, by contract, strict liability or tort (including negligence or otherwise) arising in any way from the Services provided or the use of the Software, even if advised of the possibility of such damages.
The solutions we develop, in order to function properly, very often rely on an infrastructure that is beyond our control and whose proper functioning we cannot guarantee. (the device has no connection and no internet going, the server of a third party is not reachable, the software running on a specific smartphone does not work like the others, the browser or the device's operating system has an outdated version, etc.) and consequently, in turn, we cannot guarantee the permanent functioning of what has been achieved.
Just as hosting service companies assume only the responsibility for means, but not for results, in the same way we do.
This means that we will put forth all our knowledge (the "means") to make everything work, but we cannot guarantee it since it may not depend on us.
In the field of software or Internet services this is the norm, justread any EULA and you will find the same wording. In factmany of the points made here are taken from the famous bsd license free software. Also since software development isan umsible activity to ensure that the software produced is free ofof errors. That is why in our industry these statementsare the practice: no software house provides softwareguaranteeing that it is free of defects.
Everyone (including the Big guys: Microsoft, Google, Meta, etc.) provides. software "AS IS." To make up for this limitation, as they cannot being able to guarantee that at the first release the developed solution will be free of malfunctions (bugs), we normally provide in our offerings a post release period for free correction of bugs that may emerge.
The free trial period may vary depending on the nature of the contract and depending on its duration.
2.4 The Client waives any and all claims for compensation against
2.5 AIDAPT cannot be subject to penalties of any kind, explicit or implied.
2.6 The Client assumes all civil and criminal liability arising from the use of the Software developed and for the services requested to AIDAPT. The Customer therefore declares that it has all the authorizations and permissions necessary to have AIDAPT perform the work requested.

2.8 In the event that the Client wishes to publish the software developed on third party systems (by way of example, Apple Store, Google Play Store, etc.), it will be the responsibility of the Client to ensure that the developed software adheres to the conditions required by such platforms. AIDAPT will not be responsible in the event that the thirdparty platform, for whatever reason, refuses to publish the software or in the event that the Client incurs costs additional costs for adapting the software to the requirements of the thirdparty platform.
2.9 The Customer assumes all civil and criminal liability for the possible falsity or incorrectness of the information and data communicated to AIDAPT.
2.10 In order to be able to provide a turnkey service, in some cases, AIDAPT may need to interact with third party systems parties or manage accounts on external services on behalf of the Client (ex: publishing Apps on Google Play, Apple Store, etc.).
