Terms of Use

Please read this document in its entirety. It outlines the terms of use for the Advisory Services (“services”) offered by Patchnet, Inc. (“Patchnet”). In this document, references to “You” pertain to the individual or individuals who have registered an account with Patchnet, purchased a service subscription, and use the services.

Governing Laws

This website and services and any disputes arising out of or related to it are governed by the laws of Miami-Dade County, Florida, USA, without regard to its conflict of laws principles.

User Eligibility.

The Web Sites should only be accessed and used by individuals who agree to be bound by these Terms of Use and who are at least 18 years of age. The Web Sites may be accessible worldwide; however, the Web Sites are intended for use only in the USA. If you access/use the Web Sites from outside the USA, you do so at your own risk and are responsible for complying with the laws and regulations of the territory from which you access/use the Web Sites.

Changes to Terms of Use.

Patchnet reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to revise, change, or modify these Terms of Use at any time. We will incorporate all material changes to these Terms of Use on this page. Notice of any change may be given in any manner we choose that complies with the law, including, but not limited to posting a notice of such changes on the Web Sites. We encourage you to review this page periodically for the most recent version of these Terms of Use. Your use of the Web Sites following notice of such changes shall be deemed to constitute acceptance by you of those changes to the Terms of Use.

Your Patchnet subscription will continue and automatically renew until terminated. To use the Patchnet service you must have Internet access and a device which allows you to access our website and provide us with one or more Payment Methods. "Payment Method" means a current, valid, accepted method of payment, as may be updated from time to time and which may include payment through your account with a third party. You must cancel your membership before it renews in order to avoid billing of the membership fees for the next billing cycle to your Payment Method (see "Cancellation" below).

We may offer a number of subscription plans. Some subscriptions plans may have differing conditions and limitations, which will be disclosed at your sign-up or in other communications made available to you. You can find specific details regarding your subscription by visiting the website and clicking on the "Account" link available at the top of the pages under your profile name.

Billing and Cancellation

Billing Cycle.
The subscription fee for the Patchnet service and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the service, such as taxes and possible transaction fees, will be charged to your Payment Method on the specific payment date indicated on the "Account" page. The length of your billing cycle will depend on the type of subscription that you choose when you signed up for the service. Subscription fees are fully earned upon payment. In some cases, your payment date may change, for example if your Payment Method has not successfully settled, when you change your subscription plan or if your paid subscription began on a day not contained in a given month. Visit the website and click on the "My Subscriptions" link on the "Account" page to see your next payment date. We may authorize your Payment Method in anticipation of membership or service-related charges through various methods, including authorizing it up to approximately one month of service as soon as you register. If you signed up for Patchnet using your account with a third party as a Payment Method, you can find the billing information about your Patchnet membership by visiting your account with the applicable third party.

Payment Methods.
To use the Patchnet service you must provide one or more Payment Methods. You authorize us to charge any Payment Method associated to your account in case your primary Payment Method is declined or no longer available to us for payment of your subscription fee. You remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not cancel your account, we may suspend your access to the service until we have successfully charged a valid Payment Method. For some Payment Methods, the issuer may charge you certain fees, such as foreign transaction fees or other fees relating to the processing of your Payment Method. Check with your Payment Method service provider for details.

Updating your Payment Methods.
You can update your Payment Methods by going to the "Account" page. We may also update your Payment Methods using information provided by the payment service providers. Following any update, you authorize us to continue to charge the applicable Payment Method(s).

Pausing your Subscription

You can pause your Patchnet subscription at any time, and you will continue to have access to the Patchnet service through the end of your billing period. To Pause, go to the "Account" page on our website and follow the instructions for pausing your subscription. Pausing your subscription will place your account into a hold status. Your account remains active although you cannot utilize any Patchnet services, and future billing cycles are suspended. You can still incur charges for any overage billing you incurred prior to pausing your account. You can un-pause your account anytime, and your billing cycle will resume based on when you un-pause your account.

You can cancel your Patchnet subscription at any time, and you will continue to have access to the Patchnet service through the end of your billing period. To cancel, go to the "Account" page on our website and follow the instructions for cancellation. If you cancel your membership, your account will automatically close at the end of your current billing period. To see when your account will close, click "Billing details" on the "Account" page.

Changes to the Price and Subscription Plans.
We may change our subscription plans and the price of our service from time to time; however, any price changes or changes to your subscription plans will apply no earlier than 30 days following notice to you. If you do not wish to accept the price change or change to your subscription plan, you can cancel your subscription before the change takes effect.

No Refunds.
Payments are nonrefundable and there are no refunds or credits for partially used subscription periods. Following any cancellation, however, you will continue to have access to the service through the end of your current billing period. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our members ("credits"). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance.

Overage Charges

Your subscription plan provides access to advisory services up to a specified maximum number of hours. You can opt to exceed that limit, and as such any advisory services provided in excess of your subscription plan will be billed as overage. Please refer to your plan for your overage rate. Any overage charges incurred will be applied to your next billing statement. We reserve the right to limit or restrict access to advisory services that exceed your plan’s allocated hours.

Unpaid Services:
Any amounts due to Patchnet that remain unpaid after the due date on your billing cycle may incur late fees, including interest penalties starting from the due date until paid in full.

Billing Discrepancies:
Should you believe there is a discrepancy in your bill, you must notify Patchnet going your “Account” page and following the instructions to dispute a bill or via email within 30 days of receiving the bill. Failure to notify within this period constitutes acceptance of the bill as accurate.

Collection Efforts:
If we are unable to process your payment method on file, or any amount remains unpaid by the due date, Patchnet reserves the right to engage in collection efforts. This may include, but is not limited to, employing a collections agency, reporting to credit bureaus, or pursuing legal action. You agree to reimburse us for any costs or expenses incurred due to such collection efforts, including legal fees, to the extent allowed by law.

Advisory Service

Your subscription grants you access to the Advisory Service, which includes access to our advisors who will provide you with advice, recommendations, or solutions with regards to your Microsoft 365 tenant environment. Our Advisors and our services are available to you during regular business hours, Monday through Friday excluding holidays.

Discretion in Granting Access and Sharing Data:

You affirm that you have the authority to grant Patchnet access to your Microsoft 365 tenant and to share its information. By doing so, you acknowledge that this decision is solely at your discretion. Any information you provide to Patchnet, its advisors, third parties, agents, or independent contractors is shared at your own risk. Patchnet bears no responsibility for storing, retaining, or backing up shared information.

Remote Access or Screen Share Tools:
There may be situations where our Advisors can best assist you by using remote access tools, granting them full control over your computer. If you're uncomfortable with this, please decline the remote access option, and we'll support you in other ways. By granting this access, you accept all responsibilities related to the use of these tools. In case of any discrepancies between these Terms of Use and information provided elsewhere on our website or by our Advisors, these Terms of Use prevail.

We don’t provide compliance solutions.
You recognize that Patchnet and its advisors aren't specialists in data compliance, cybersecurity, or government regulations. All guidance and configurations given by Patchnet are based on general understanding and are offered in good faith. It's your responsibility to ensure any advice or configurations align with your specific compliance needs, whether internal or mandated by industry or government. Patchnet, along with its advisors, shareholders, employees, and agents, will not be held accountable for any non-compliance on your part.

Limitations of Patchnet Services:
Patchnet does not offer real-time monitoring of your Microsoft 365 tenant, emergency response to cybersecurity incidents, forensic investigations, virus/malware removal, locating or recovery of stolen devices, or disaster recovery of data or systems.

No Guarantee Against Threats:
You acknowledges that the services provided by Patchnet come with no guarantee against cybersecurity threats or incidents. While Patchnet and its advisors will endeavor to follow best practices related to data and online security, there is no assurance that such measures will be sufficient to prevent cybersecurity incidents.

Reliance on Third-Party Tools:
Patchnet relies on tools and systems provided by third-parties and specifically Microsoft Corporation. While Patchnet will make every effort to utilize these tools and systems effectively, Patchnet does not provide any guarantee or warranty regarding their performance or effectiveness.

Cybersecurity Waiver and Release of Liability:
Except in cases of gross negligence by Patchnet and its employees, you acknowledge that Patchnet isn't liable for any cybersecurity incidents, breaches, or vulnerabilities linked to the services offered. You further waive and release Patchnet, its shareholders, employees, agents, and independent contractors from any future claims or costs stemming from these incidents.

Arbitration Agreement
You and Patchnet agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating in any way to the Patchnet service, these Terms of Use and this Arbitration Agreement, shall be determined by binding arbitration or in small claims court. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award and nothing in this Arbitration Agreement shall be interpreted as limiting any non-waivable statutory rights. You agree that, by agreeing to these Terms of Use, the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and Patchnet are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement and the termination of your Patchnet membership.

If you elect to seek arbitration or file a small claim court action, you must first send to Patchnet, by certified mail, a written Notice of your claim ("Notice"). The Notice to Patchnet must be addressed to: Patchnet, Inc., 8950 SW 74th Ct Suite 2201 A26 Miami, FL 33156 ("Notice Address"). If Patchnet initiates arbitration, it will send a written Notice to the email address used for your membership account. A Notice, whether sent by you or by Patchnet, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If Patchnet and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Patchnet may commence an arbitration proceeding or file a claim in small claims court.

The arbitration will be governed by the Rules (the "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and Forms are available online at, or by writing to the Notice Address. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this arbitration agreement. Unless Patchnet and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in Miami-Dade County, Florida, USA. The arbitrator's award shall be final and binding on all parties, except (1) for judicial review expressly permitted by law or (2) if the arbitrator's award includes an award of injunctive relief against a party, in which case that party shall have the right to seek judicial review of the injunctive relief in a court of competent jurisdiction that shall not be bound by the arbitrator's application or conclusions of law.

YOU AND PATCHNET AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and PATCHNET agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims with your claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void.

All Site design, text, graphics, the selection, and arrangement thereof, Copyright ©, Patchnet, Inc. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.

If any provision or provisions of these Terms of Use shall be held to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect.
