If you disagree with any part of the Terms then you may not access the Services. These Terms including the Privacy Policy constitute the entire agreement between us regarding our Services and supersede and replace any prior agreements we might have between us regarding the Services.

By accessing the Platform and/or using our Services you warrant and affirm that you: a) are a legal entity or an individual of legal age to form a binding contract, however, at least 18 years of age (if not you warrant and affirm that you are using our Services under the supervision of a parent or guardian) b) have not been previously suspended or banned from using our Services and c) have the capacity to enter into this agreement and agree to be bound by these Terms.

These Terms include the provisions in this document, as well as those in the Privacy Policy. In these Terms, the words “include” or “including” mean “including but not limited to”, and examples are for illustration purposes and are not limiting.

We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time. If a revision is substantial, we will try to provide at least a 30 day notice prior to any new terms taking effect. What constitutes a substantial change will be determined at our sole discretion.

1. Our Services in general

We will use best endeavours to provide the Services to any person or entity using the Services (“you”, “your” or “Customer”) throughout the terms and conditions of these Terms in accordance with the level of Services purchased by the Customer.

Our Services may be free (i.e. Deepnote - Free Services) or we may charge a fee for using the Services (i.e. Deepnote - Team and Enterprise editions). If you are using a free version of the Services, we will notify you before any Services you are using begin carrying a fee, and if you wish to continue using such Services, you must pay all applicable fees for such Services.

Please note that we’re always trying to improve the Services, so they may change over time. We may suspend or discontinue any part of the Services, or we may introduce new features or impose limits on certain features or restrict access to parts or all of the Services. We’ll try to give you notice when we make a material change to the Services that would adversely affect you, but this isn’t always practical. Similarly, we reserve the right to remove any content from the Services at any time, for any reason (including, but not limited to, if someone alleges you contributed that content in violation of these Terms), in our sole discretion, and without notice.

2. Accessing the Services and using the Platform

In order to use the Services and access our Platform, the Customer will be required to sign up to the Platform. We made a decision to not support password login and only use trusted third party login providers, Google and Github. Both companies support several means of multi-factor authentication (MFA) and have a solid level of security against brute force, or credentials stuffing attacks. Therefore you will need to sign up, and select whether you would like to sign up with Google (using your Google account credentials) or sign up with GitHub (using your GitHub account credentials).

You may use the Services for your own internal, personal, or commercial (work-related) use, and only in a manner that complies with all laws that apply to you. If your use of the Services is prohibited by applicable laws, then you aren’t authorized to use the Services. We are not responsible if you use the Services in a way that breaks the law.

When logged in the Platform, you can create and access various projects. Projects have granular role-based access control (RBAC) settings, to allow you to choose what your collaborators can and cannot do. A project in Deepnote contains code, data and it all runs in one environment. You are free to share it with other collaborators, who can use it simultaneously with you. To create a project in Deepnote, you can upload your own files, import a project from other third party services (e.g. Github or Gitlab), or just create an empty project.You can make any submission to the project on the Platform, i.e. anything you post, upload, share, store, or otherwise provide through the Platform is considered as your customer submission (the “Customer submission”).
