If you register for a free trial for our products and/or services, the applicable provisions of these terms will also govern that free trial.
By accepting these terms, or by accessing or using the service or site, or authorising or permitting any agent or end-user to access or use the service, you agree to be bound by these terms.

If you do not have such authority, or if you do not agree with these terms, you must not accept these terms and may not use the service.
