Any new Organization (an organization that has never had an account, or previously used trial access) is entitled to try the apprais.ly service for a specified period at no charge. The duration of the trial period for the use of apprais.ly is determined by the Contractor’s proposal.
A trial account that allows testing the functionality of apprais.ly may have some limitations compared to regular accounts that are associated with an active subscription.
If the Organization does not notify the Contractor by the end of the trial period that it will continue to use apprais.ly, the trial account becomes an inactive account. If the Organization notifies the Contractor within the same period and wishes to continue using the service, the trial accounts shall become authorized or user accounts and the day after the end of the trial period shall be considered as the day of the beginning of the accounting period for that month.
Inactive accounts are accounts that are not associated with paid apprais.ly subscription and therefore do not gain access to apprais.ly services. Hereinafter (2.8 Data Retention) more information on the implications of inactive account data.
2.8 Data Retention
