As consideration for the services received and the right to use the UTOPIA software, the Customer will pay to NSI the fees detailed in the Economic Conditions referred to in the previous art. 6. NSI will invoice the fees, annually in advance, for the full amount due, or in monthly installments in advance, as chosen by the Customer at the time of conclusion of the Contract.
Payments must be made by the Customer together with the conclusion of the Contract and, later, by the expiry date of each annual or monthly invoice, according to the methods chosen by them at the time of conclusion of the Contract.
By way of derogation from Article 1460 of the Civil Code, payments must, in any case, be made at the expiration dates referred to in Article 7.2 above, even if there are any disputes and exceptions by the Customer, which must be treated separately and resolved once the payment of the due amount has been made by the Customer.

Failure to pay the fees in the terms indicated above will allow NSI to suspend the supply of the Services, as well as to terminate the contract pursuant to art. 1456 c.c. In case of payment by direct debit (eg. credit card), NSI will still try, for a maximum of three times, to make the charge before the suspension of the service, however, giving notice to the e-mail address used by the Customer in phase activation of his domain. It will be the unquestionable right of NSI to decide whether, in view of the
late payment made by the Customer after the suspension of the supply, consider terminating the contract or restoring the service, without prejudice to the right of the Customer to obtain the reimbursement of any amount paid in excess.
The economic considerations indicated in the Economic Conditions are established with reference to the date of conclusion of the Contract. The Economic Conditions may be changed, at the discretion of NSI, to each annual expiry of the Contract.
In this case, NSI will transmit to the Customer by email, to the address indicated at the time of conclusion of the Contract, a notice of change within 30 days prior to the annual expiry of the Contract, and the changes will be viewed through the publication on the website https://www.utopiathesoftware.com/en/pricing.
In the case of a specific Economic Offer, NSI will send to the Customer via email, at the address indicated by the latter at the conclusion of the Contract, a notice of change within 30 days prior to the annual expiry of the Contract, and the changes will be viewed in the new specific Economic Offer contained in the notice. The Customer will always be free to accept the new Economic Conditions or to withdraw from the Contract. In both cases, in the absence of express notice of refusal by the Customer, the Contract will be tacitly renewed according to the new Economic Conditions.
Any duty, tax or contribution, in any case weighing on the present contract, fees or services provided therein, will be charged to the customer, excluding income tax payable by NSI.
Any liability of NSI not attributable to willful misconduct or gross negligence is excluded.
Within the limits of what is permitted by law, there is a limitation of liability in favor of NSI for any damages of any kind and type, direct and indirect, that may achieve the activities covered by the contract equal to the annual value of the contract, without prejudice to compliance what is foreseen by the art. 1229 of the Civil Code. Likewise, any liability of NSI for damages or consequences deriving from causes, in any case, attributable to the products supplied/indicated by the Customer, as well as for any damage or consequences resulting from interventions, operations, installations, etc., made by the Customer by third parties authorized by him on the Customer's Information System.
The Customer undertakes to keep NSI relieved and free from any and all complaints, claims, requests, actions of third parties connected and consequent to the use of UTOPIA and its products, and deriving from the Customer's failure to comply with the obligations arising from this Contract, and any eventual violation of the law, without prejudice to the right of NSI, in such cases, to terminate the contract pursuant to and for the purposes of art. 1456 c.c., in addition to the right of NSI to obtain compensation for any damage suffered.
In all cases of force majeure (such as, by way of example but not limited to, earthquakes, natural disasters, war, embargo, revolt, interdiction and restriction of imports or exports, close strike, lack of ability to find raw materials), the Parties will not be liable for breach or defect of the service object of this contract.
NSI warrants that any software used by NSI itself is of legitimate origin and complies with the relevant licenses and warranties, and undertakes to relieve the Customer from any cost and liability for alleged violations by the said products, regarding any intellectual/industrial property rights claimed by third parties.
All information and data entered by the Customer or conferred by authorized access to the Customer's software in the NSI systems and/or sent to the End Users through the services of NSI are and remain the exclusive property of the Customer.
Consequently, the Customer assumes all responsibility for such data and information, for their acquisition and origin, for their content and for their management.
This Contract may have an annual or monthly duration, depending on the purchase methods chosen by the Customer at the time of conclusion of the same. The Contract is automatically renewed for an equal period, except for withdrawal to be communicated pursuant to the following art. 13, without prejudice to what has been agreed with the previous art. 7.5.
The withdrawal can be exercised by both parties, after written notice to be sent within 30 days before the automatic renewal of the Contract: if the withdrawal will be exercised by the customer, the same will have to log in to his account and access Subscription > Manage organizations, click on the subscription cancellation button and confirm his choice, or alternatively, send the communication to the PEC address email@example.com. If the withdrawal will be exercised by NSI, the same will send the communication to the email address used by the Customer during the activation of its domain, and to the PEC address that the latter, for this purpose, committed to providing. The services will remain active until the end of the subscription period (monthly or annual), without prejudice to the voluntary destruction of the domain (and of all its data, including backups) that can be exercised directly by the customer. In this case, there is no reimbursement for the subscription rate not used.
In cases where the customer does not renew the subscription previously activated for a specific organization, the data entered will not be automatically deleted but will remain usable within the limits set by the UTOPIA BASIC version. The subscription can be reactivated, even afterward, without any duty for the period in which it was not active. Also, NSI, once the subscription period has expired, reserves the right to cancel all data present if no more than 90 days have been logged in, after communicating this to the customer. After 90 days of inactivity on a specific unsubscribed organization, the customer can avoid the deletion of data purchasing a new annual subscription for the organization in question. The same applies to organisations created free of charge and never subscribed to.
Any changes or additions to this contract will be communicated to the customer via email at the address indicated by the same. In case of failure to reply within 15 days from receipt of such communication, the modifications and additions will be deemed accepted and in force for all purposes between the Parties.
None of the parties may transfer this contract to third parties, except with the express written consent of the transferred party.
The regulating law is the Italian one.
Any dispute concerning the validity, effectiveness, interpretation, execution, and application and termination of this contract will be exclusively and mandatory jurisdiction of the forum of Bologna.
