20.1 Where the Customer provides notice of termination of Suppliers services, the Customer shall forfeit the right to continue to access WilldooIT’s Intellectual Property
20.2 All rights as described below depend on a customer having paid any and all invoices as and where due to the supplier.
20.3 These Terms and Conditions govern terms of Access to the software defined as follows:
20.3.1. Odoo is the supplier of the Odoo Community and Enterprise Code. Community is open source and covered by a LGPLv3 license. Odoo Enterprise source code is not open source and is covered by the Odoo Enterprise License see https://www.odoo.com/documentation/user/13.0/legal/licenses/licenses.html
20.3.2. Once a customer begins paying for an Odoo Enterprise license they have the right to view the enterprise code and to develop modules based on this code as per the terms of this license. This right remains in place for as long as the customer pays their license fees. It is prohibited to distribute the enterprise code to a third party who is not paying for a license.
20.3.3. Third Party Modules or Apps from the Odoo App store are covered under various license types, but in most cases once a customer purchases that app they will have access to the code for that app and are able to use it for their own purposes, but not distribute this code to another party for the use of that other party. (i.e.. Use but not distribute).
20.3.4. WilldooIT will provide customer’s code written for them. This code is requested or defined in a "Transaction Document" which may be an email, or formal document outlining the feature or function that the code will be written to achieve. By default, these features will be written for that customer only and will be stored in a code repository for that customer. The customer has the right to access the code for their own purposes (provided it is paid for) at any time they so wish. However, the code is by default owned by WilldooIT and licensed to the customer and should not be distributed.
20.3.5. In extension to (20.3.4) it is possible for the Customer to request that they own the code developed, this can be negotiated and outlined on the "Transaction Document" but is not the default scenario and is not assumed to be the case unless specified.
20.3.6. (20.3.4) and (20.3.5) assume the code written is an extension of, or to augment or be in addition to Odoo owned enterprise or community code. It is often the case that what is termed as "Library Code" owned by WilldooIT may be used, extended or referenced to complete the tasks as outlined in the "Transaction Document". This Library Code is and will always remain the property of WilldooIT but is provided to customers for their use only if they pay a license fee. Whilst license fees are paid to WilldooIT for access to this "Library Code", the customer will have access to it. (i.e. Use but not distribute).
20.3.7. In extension to (20.3.6) it is possible for the Customer to request that "no WilldooIT owned Library Code is used". This request may not be possible, at which time WilldooIT will advise the customer. If a customer requires a functionality that is available exclusively in the WilldooIT Library Code, it will not be possible to create it separately. In this case, the customer must utilise the existing functionality provided in the WilldooIT Library Code (available with a subscription fee).
20.3.8. All code written by WilldooIT for a customer will be assumed to be available to WilldooIT for use in their Library Code" if required. However, this will not be the case if the "Transaction Document" specifically forbids it, as may be the case if (20.3.5) or (20.3.7) is enacted but cannot be the case if (20.3.6) is enacted.
20.3.9. If at any time a customer chooses to leave WilldooIT's hosting service for a third party, provided Odoo licenses are paid, they will have access to Odoo enterprise code. The customer can also request code purchased as per statement (20.3.3) or written as per statements (20.3.4), (20.3.5) and (20.3.7). However, code written under the provisions of statement (20.3.6) which makes use of "Library Code" will be treated as such: the code written for the customer exclusively (ie. stored in their repository) but not the Library Code will be provided to the customer when they leave. However, this code will usually not be operable without the "Library Code". A "Library Code" release agreement may be negotiated, however WilldooIT is under no obligation to do so.
21. Hosting Services
21.1. Services – means the web-based hosting solutions provided by WilldooIT.
21.2. Third-party supplier – means the third-party owner of the Intellectual Property in the services from whom WilldooIT acquires services to enable WilldooIT to provide the Services to the Customer, for example https://cloud.google.com/terms
21.3. WilldooIT may suspend access to the Services for routine maintenance or upgrade:
21.3.1. As required by the Third-Party supplier, or
21.3.2. As necessary. Provided that, to the extent possible, WilldooIT will ensure that interruptions to the Services are kept to a minimum.
21.3.3. Where possible the customer will be contacted beforehand to co-ordinate planned outages.
21.4. The Customer ordered and WilldooIT agreed to supply to the Customer the Services subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
21.5. WilldooIT undertakes to provide the Services in compliance with these Terms and Conditions.
21.6. Representations and Warranties – the Customer represents, warrants and covenants to WilldooIT that:
21.6.1. The Customer data or its use or the use by the Customer of the Services shall not violate, misappropriate or infringe any Intellectual Property rights of any personal or breach the privacy of any person or moral right arising under the Laws;
