It is a guideline which helps to ensure that no single Customer compromises the performance And/or Data storage limits of the Triniteq or Triniteq’s Partner Services, Software, Products, Goods and/or Hardware for others.
Triniteq has introduced this fair use policy for Data Storage for all Triniteq or Triniteq’s Partner Cloud products, including (but not limited to) PowerEPOS, Insights, & Predicttile. Customers can use up to the “fair use” data storage amounts allocated by Triniteq without charge. Tools are provided to track actual storage and the ability to adjust the Customers retention policy. Customers electing to store data above the allocation are billed a charge per GB per month as outlined in this policy. Triniteq’s fair use allocations are provided for the Customer by counting the number of billable Software license types during a Monthly period, and applying the allowance shown in the table below for each Customers Software license to determine the total amount of allocated data storage for the Customer during the Monthly period.
Triniteq allows Data to be retained on its platforms for the Term of the Agreement. If the Customer exceeds their provided allocation as outlined on below, the Customer will be billed for storage.
24.1 What is Fair Use?
a. Fair Use means that the amount of Data the Customer downloads, uploads, stores or uses is not unlimited, and does not imply infinite Data downloads, uploads, usage, or storage.
b. When the Customer reaches a downloaded, uploaded, or Data use/storage limit, Triniteq may, at its sole discretion, bill the Customer for any additional Data usage/storage, and may, at its sole discretion impose a storage, shaping, or speed limiting policy be applied to the Customer’s service.
c. Factors outside the control of Triniteq may have an effect of altering the Customer’s experience and Triniteq or Triniteq’s Partner Services, Software, Products, Goods and/or Hardware performance speeds. For example, localised congestion of wholesale supplied backhaul may prevent Triniteq’s or the Customer’s wholesale supplier providing the same speeds at all times of day.
d. The maximum Data transfer speed of the Customer’s connection is dependent on physical infrastructure such as the Customer’s premises’ distance from the telephone exchange and quality of communications cabling. The speed of the Customer’s own connection may place a limit to the amount of Data that the Customer is able to download, upload, and/or use.
24.2 Triniteq Data storage allowance in the Subscription

Delays in providing, preparing, and uploading content may result in parts of the project being rescheduled to accommodate for other projects that Triniteq may have pending at that time. Triniteq’s objective is to maintain momentum and work to the agreed schedule during the project where possible.
26. Power & Data Cabling
The Customer acknowledges that:
26.1 The installation of power and data cabling is not included in Triniteq proposals/quotes and whilst Triniteq does not undertake the installation of cabling, Triniteq may recommend a qualified contractor and work in conjunction with the Customer by offering information and consultation regarding power and data cabling requirements for Triniteq supplied systems.
26.2 Triniteq shall not be liable in any way whatsoever regarding Triniteq recommended contractors, information, and/or consultation provided to the Customer regarding power and data cabling requirements for Triniteq supplied systems.
26.3 The installation of both power and CAT5/CAT6 data cabling is not the responsibility of Triniteq
26.4 It is imperative that all cabling (both power and data) is completed to Australian industry standard specifications/specifications outlined by Triniteq. The onsite installation of any Triniteq or Triniteq’s Partners Services, Software, Products, Goods and/or Hardware will not be carried out until Triniteq is satisfied as to the quality of the completed cabling installation and that all data and power cabling meets the specifications outlined by Australian industry standard specifications and Australian occupational health and safety standards. Therefore, cabling not carried out to Australian industry standard specifications and Australian occupational health and safety standards voids all Triniteq warranties.
26.5 If a Triniteq installation does not occur or is delayed for reasons attributed to the Customer (including but not limited to unsatisfactory power supply or data cabling or the Customer’s installation/site otherwise not being suitable for any other reason, whether attributable to the Customer or any of its contractors, agents, employees or any other person other than Triniteq), the Customer will be liable to Triniteq for all reasonable costs associated with the delay or cancellation of a scheduled installation.
