Last revision: March 18, 2024

These general terms and conditions of (“Contract”) are entered into between LiberoSocial s.r.l. (“Asters”), with registered office in Affi (VR), Via Crivellin 9Y – 37010, P.IVA 04676140231, in the person of the legal representative pro tempore and the customer, identified with the data provided by filling out the appropriate master data sheet on the Platform, as defined below, of Asters (“Customer”, and together with Asters “Parties”). Translated with DeepL.com (free version)

Premises and general information

Asters has developed and designed an online digital service accessible via the Internet network in a “Software As A Service” mode reachable at https://asters.ai (“Platform”) that, through the exploitation of artificial intelligence tools, enables the Customer to perform a number of activities in an automated manner on its social networks connected to the Platform (“Social Channels”), by way of example, directly and on its own to manage communication on social networks, search, create and publish content (“Content”), and analyze the performance of Content (“Services”). Unless otherwise specified, the provisions of the Agreement with respect to the Services apply to all Services offered by Asters. The Services and the Platform are reserved for professional, non-amateur use. The Customer (i) agrees to use them exclusively in connection with its professional activity and otherwise for needs related thereto and, by reason of the foregoing, (ii) the definition of “consumer” and all that derives therefrom set forth in the Consumer Code or other legislation dedicated to consumers will not apply. The Services are usable by the Customer upon reading in all its parts and specific acceptance of the Contract. Subsequent changes made by Asters to the Contract shall be deemed to be expressly accepted by the Customer against the use of the Services, and for this reason the Customer undertakes to consult this section regularly in order to take note of any changes to the Contract.

Section 1: Terms of use of the service

1.1 – Description of services

Once the Social Channels are connected to the Platform, the Customer will be able to take advantage of the following Services:

  • Data Retention: a service that, via Application Programming Interface (“API”), allows for the collection of a range of information related to posts made by the Customer on Social Channels connected to the Platform, such as, but not limited to, data metrics (so-called “analytics”) and tone of voice, to create a history of Customer information. This information is then saved and stored in a special database, for a period of time defined between Asters and the Customer. In the event of termination of the Contract for any reason whatsoever, the Customer shall have the right to request Asters to permanently delete such information and, in such case, the Customer acknowledges and agrees that Asters i) shall have 120 (one hundred and twenty) days to complete the deletion and ii) cannot guarantee that the deletion of the Customer’s information will consequently result in the elimination of the re-processing of information carried out by Asters in aggregate form (e.g., to create statistics or surveys on specific industries) where the individual information pertaining to the Customer is, however, no longer identifiable as such;
  • Discover: a service that, via API, analyzes over 60 thousand RSS feeds to show within the Platform the most relevant web articles according to the search made by the Client via the Platform. All articles shown to the Customer are exclusively those within the RSS feeds chosen by Asters. The Customer will be able to access the full content of the articles exclusively by visiting the source and in accordance with the provisions on the latter’s site. Asters has no relationship with the sources of the RSS feeds or the individual links contained therein, therefore, nothing can guarantee the content and updating of the RSS feeds and the individual links contained therein;
  • Brand Voice: a service to generate texts through the inclusion of keywords chosen by the Client that reflect the Client’s tone of voice and style on Social Channels;
  • Autopilot: a service that, through the aid of the “Zapier” platform, allows the Customer to create automated workflows that include, by way of example, the automatic publication of posts on the Customer’s Social Channels. Since this is a platform owned by a third party other than Asters, in order to take advantage of Autopilot, the Customer will necessarily have to create an account on the “Zapier” platform and pay any amount due for its use to the owner of the platform. Once the account has been created on the “Zapier” platform, the Customer may request Asters to obtain the integration of the service on the Platform (including by e-mail) and Asters will provide the Customer with all information regarding this process and the related costs since it is not a Service automatically included in the Subscription, as defined below.
1.2 – License to use the services

By entering into the Agreement and upon proper and full payment of the subscription formula agreed between the Parties (“Subscription”), Asters grants the Customer a limited, non-exclusive license to use the Services through the Platform.

1.3 – Customer access to services
Access to the Services may be performed with authorization and authentication credentials provided by Asters to the Customer, which must be kept and used under the sole responsibility of the Customer. In particular, the Customer undertakes to keep the alphanumeric access codes (“Username” and “Password”) with the utmost confidentiality, for which he/she will be exclusively responsible, also with reference to any damage caused by unauthorized third parties who may access his/her account. The Customer may invite its employees/collaborators on the Platform – who upon registration will receive their own Username and Password – to use on behalf of, on behalf of and for the benefit of the Customer the Services, it being understood that the Customer will be solely responsible for the actions of the aforementioned individuals on the Platform and in general for the use of the Services in compliance with the Agreement, indemnifying and holding Asters harmless from any and all prejudicial consequences arising from the foregoing and, more generally, from the use by third parties authorized by the Customer (and with whom Asters does not have and will not have any contractual relationship) of the Platform and the Services. Il Cliente, anche per conto dei propri dipendenti/collaboratori, si impegna a:
  • Immediately notify Asters of any theft, loss, loss or appropriation for any reason, by third parties, of the Username and/or Password;
  • Change the Password at least once every six months;
  • Always provide information and references (e.g., e-mail address and contact information) that are true, current, complete, and accurate;
  • Promptly notify Asters in the event of unauthorized use of or access to the Platform or Services and its functions or any breach of the Platform’s security measures.
The Client is explicitly prohibited from:
  • Circumvent or tamper with access and authentication to the Platform and Services in any manner such as, but not limited to, through hacking, “password mining” or any other illegal means;
  • Decode, disassemble, decompile, or attempt to identify the source code or algorithms underlying all or part of the Platform and Services;
  • Modify and/or create derivatives of any part of the Platform and Services;
  • Use any “deep-link,” “page-scrape,” “robot,” “spider,” or other automatic device, program, algorithm, or methodology, or any similar or equivalent manual process, to access, acquire, copy, or monitor any part of the Platform and Services, or in any way reproduce or circumvent the navigational structure or presentation of the Platform and Services to obtain or attempt to obtain any material, document, or information through any means that is not intentionally made available through the Services;
  • Probe, examine, or test the vulnerability of the Platform and Services or any network connected to them, or breach security or authentication measures;
  • Take any action that imposes an unreasonable or disproportionate load on the infrastructure of the Platform, the Services, or any system or network connected to them;
  • Use a device, software, or routine to interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper operation of the Platform and Services;
  • Use the Platform, Services or Content for purposes that are illegal or prohibited by the Agreement and/or applicable law.
1.4 – Methods of using the services
The customer acknowledges and agrees that:
  • There is no agreement of any kind between Asters and social networking platforms or other software related to or otherwise necessary for the Services (by way of example, RSS Feed providers or “Zapier”);
  • Social network platforms could at any time disrupt and/or modify the API and this could limit, alter or even inhibit the Client’s operation of the Services without any liability for Asters resulting from this;
  • The Services do not store passwords to the Client’s Social Channels, but use an access token that is returned by the social networks each time the Client authenticates with them through a browser. A valid access token is essential to access the Social Channels API. Because of the above, Client acknowledges and agrees that an access token may be invalidated for the following reasons:
    a) the Client changes their password on the Social Channel
    b) the Customer, through the Social Channel, removes the access authorization to the application
    c) according to the policies of each Social Channel, the access token may be invalidated after a certain period of time – so-called expired account
    d) for other reasons determined by each Social Channel
    e) if the access token has expired for the reasons listed in a, b, c above, a new one can be requested through the reconnect function at the Social Channel;
  • All correspondence pertaining to the Services between the Client and Asters may be recorded and archived and will be valid evidence in the event of disputes pertaining to the relationship between Asters and the Client.

1.5 – Contents

Within the scope of the Services, Customer is solely and exclusively responsible for uploading any and all materials, including but not limited to photographic, graphic or textual documentation, for the creation of Content. Asters disclaims any and all liability with respect to the Content created and/or posted by the Customer and shall not be liable in any capacity for any damages caused directly or indirectly through the use of the Content within the scope of the Services. As part of the Services, Customer acknowledges and expressly agrees that Asters may store Customer’s Content for a period of 30 (thirty) days, unless otherwise agreed in writing between the Parties, and Customer may request Asters to restore and/or retrieve Content uploaded and subsequently deleted by Customer from its account during the aforementioned period of time. In the event that the Customer’s request for restoration/recovery is sent after the aforementioned time period, or in any event after the different time period agreed upon in writing between the Parties, the Customer acknowledges and accepts that Asters will not be able to recover and provide the Content requested by the Customer (as it has been permanently deleted from Asters’ servers), hereby waiving as of now the Customer’s right to any claim in this regard against Asters, including by way of reimbursement or compensation. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Asters reserves the right to verify, at any time and without prior notice, the compliance of the saved files. Asters, at its sole discretion, without prior notice and without refund of the unused period, may suspend the provision of the Services in the event that the aforementioned files are found to be larger than the maximum allowed size or if they contain:
  • Obscene, pornographic or child pornographic content;
  • Content that is offensive, immoral or infringes on the rights of third parties;
  • Content that incites violence, hatred or with purposes contrary to public order;
  • Content protected, even in part, by copyright;
  • Content that concerns or promotes services or goods that are illegal in the country of receipt and/or origin of the posts or otherwise contrary to Italian law.
The Customer acknowledges and expressly acknowledges that:
  • Asters makes no warranties about the originality and protectability of the Content and the absence of risk of receiving third-party challenges to its use;
  • Is and will remain responsible for the uses made of the Services and Content, as well as changes made to the Content.
Therefore, in connection with all of the foregoing, the Client hereby waives any and all claims against Asters, including for reimbursement or compensation, and hereby agrees to indemnify and hold Asters harmless from any and all liability, damages (direct or indirect), claims, charges, costs, or expenses (including legal) that may be incurred by Asters as a result of the breach of the foregoing.
1.6 – Ways of deletion of client’s information
Except as provided elsewhere in the Contract, after 120 (one hundred and twenty) days have elapsed from the date of expiration or termination of the Contract for any cause, Asters shall have the right to delete the information stored in the Services on behalf of the Customer. Such information will be available to the Customer for the period indicated above using the normal functionality of the Services.

Section 2: Intellectual and industrial property

“Intellectual Property Rights” means any intellectual and industrial property rights such as, but not limited to, copyrights, trademarks, patents, designs, trade secrets, know-how. Intellectual Property Rights in the Platform, Content and Services are the exclusive property of Asters. The Intellectual Property Rights to the inputs entered into the Platform by the Customer are and remain with the Customer, who grants Asters a license exclusively to generate what is requested by the Customer, it being understood that the aforementioned inputs may be used by Asters exclusively in aggregate form (by way of example, to create statistics or surveys on specific sectors) where the individual information pertaining to the Client is, however, no longer identifiable as such and, in relation to such eventuality, Asters may not proceed to any cancellation/removal of the Intellectual Property Rights even following the termination for whatever cause of the Contract with the Client. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Asters, upon proper and full payment of the Subscription, grants the Customer a non-exclusive, perpetual, worldwide license to use the Intellectual Property Rights to use the Content also for promotional or advertising purposes.
Section 3: Contract duration
The Agreement shall be for a term equal to the term of the Subscription chosen and paid for by the Customer and shall become effective on the date of activation or renewal of the Subscription. The Subscription will automatically renew for the term chosen by the Customer through the Platform or other written agreement with Asters. Unless otherwise agreed in writing between the Parties, the Customer may avoid the automatic renewal and/or terminate the Subscription by sending appropriate written notice to Asters at least 60 (sixty) days in advance, in the manner agreed between the Parties. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Customer acknowledges and agrees that no refund, even in part, will be given to the Customer for the period of time already paid but not used for the Subscription. Unless otherwise agreed upon in writing between the Parties, the Customer shall have a free trial period (“Trial”) of 14 (fourteen) days commencing from the first subscription of the Subscription, during which the Customer may freely withdraw from the Contract without incurring any cost. Once the Trial has expired, the Customer will be required to pay the Subscription for the entire period selected being excluded any hypothesis of withdrawal or early termination in favor of the same. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Customer acknowledges and expressly agrees that employees/collaborators invited by the Customer to use the Services are not granted any Trial, as the employees/collaborators use the Services by reason of the Subscription subscribed by the Customer.
Section 4: Subscription
The Customer agrees to pay the cost of the Subscription in the manner and under the terms agreed upon in writing between the Parties. The Customer acknowledges and agrees that:
  • The Subscription shall automatically renew for the period of time agreed upon between the Parties, unless terminated as indicated in the preceding article;
  • In the event of non-use of the Services, shall not be entitled to claim a refund of the Subscription in whole or in part for the period not used, the Customer hereby waiving as of now any claim in this regard, including by way of reimbursement or compensation;
  • If the Customer fails to pay what is due, the Services will be immediately suspended until full payment of the amount due, subject to Asters’ notification, including by e-mail. If the Customer fails to remedy the default within 30 (thirty) days of Asters’ request to regularize the payments, Asters may terminate the Contract, waiving as of now the Customer to any claim in this regard against Asters, even by way of reimbursement or compensation;
  • The cost of the Subscription may be subject to change at the time of renewal and, in such cases, the Customer will be promptly informed by Asters, including by e-mail; exclusively in this case, the Customer may cancel the Subscription within the term indicated by Asters in the aforementioned notice. In case of failure to cancel, the amount indicated for the renewal of the Subscription will be due in full;

By reason of the foregoing, any economic claim made against Asters and/or the Customer by reason of what is uploaded and produced with the Platform and Services, as well as any violation by the Customer of the Contract and regulations, shall be borne exclusively by the Customer, without prejudice to any right of Asters in this regard, including to act for damages. Asters shall not be liable to the Customer and to third parties for any damages, including indirect damages, caused by the inability to use or access the Platform, Services and/or Content, loss or alteration of data, profits, clientele, business interruption or the like; the Customer agrees to indemnify and hold Asters harmless from any compensatory or other claims made by third parties. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Customer i) acknowledges and agrees that Asters assumes no responsibility for the reworking of Customer’s data and materials, as well as the provision of Content and any reworking thereof as well as the Customer’s choice of RSS Feeds within the scope of the Services and the use of the “Autopilot” feature, and ii) agrees to indemnify and hold Asters harmless from any indemnification or other claims made by third parties, including resulting from any automatic publication of Content within the scope of the Services, expressly accepting the risks associated with the use of artificial intelligence tools.

  • Asters shall not be liable for anything concerning data loss, accidental dissemination of personal or sensitive data and any other type of damage occurred as a result of attacks by hackers, thieves, hackers, viruses, etc, nor malfunctions of the Platform and/or the Services caused by non-conformity and/or obsolescence of the equipment with which the Customer or third parties are equipped, or determined by the evolution and/or development of the technologies used, as well as malfunctions resulting from the impossibility or difficulty of carrying out the ancillary services arising from the responsibility of the operators of telephone lines, electricity and global and national networks, by way of example, as a result of failures, overloads, interruptions, etc;
  • Asters shall also not be liable for any conduct or omissions of third parties that impair the operation of the Platform and/or the Services, including, but not limited to, slowdowns in speed or failure of telephone lines and processors that handle telematic traffic between the Customer and the Services as well as malfunctions of third-party providers such as “Zapier.”;
  • Updates to the Platform (including the addition, modification, or removal of functionality, features, or content) are made at the sole discretion of Asters which decides the manner, amount, and timing of such updates.
