The Altera Cloud Service

The Altera Cloud service is offered to customers of Altera products and services pursuant to these Terms of Usage. Altera Cloud permits users and customers to create an account to access and use Altera Cloud features and tools. The Altera Cloud services rely on third party services and content. By using the Altera Cloud, you acknowledge and agree that Altera and such third party service or content providers may access, disclose, or use any information, and any updates, modifications or revisions thereto, designs, technical and design information, data, text, audio, video, images or other content (Your Data) that you (a) run on the Altera Cloud, (b) cause to interface with the Altera Cloud, or (c) upload to the Altera Cloud under your Account or otherwise transfer, process, use or store in connection with your Account.

Quartus II Notifications Feature Notice

If you have enabled the Quartus® II notifications feature of Altera's Quartus II software, you may use Altera Cloud to monitor their compilations from any location and receive notifications when their jobs complete.

The Quartus II notifications feature enables Altera to receive limited information concerning the Altera products that you use and your compilation of logic designs (but not the logic design files themselves) using Altera products, which allow you to browse the compile status data, or delete/purge results as you wish.

Information Collected: The following information may be transmitted to a cloud server, either hosted by Altera or an Altera service provider, to enable the feature from the Quartus II software: project revision name, local computer hostname, progress tracking information (such as the percentage complete for the overall compile as well as individual Quartus II executable stages), and critical warnings or error messages. No design files will be collected or transmitted through the Quartus II notifications feature.

Transmission of Information: The Quartus II notifications feature functions by periodically sending status information resulting from the execution of the Quartus II software and each logic design compilation and sending them to Altera's external web server by https (hypertext transfer protocol secure) network connections. The Quartus II software must be preconfigured with the user's Altera cloud user account for the feature to work. If the user's Altera cloud account is deleted or revoked, then the Quartus II software will not send any status information for the Quartus II notifications feature to the Altera cloud server.

If an https transmission fails, or an internet connection is not available at the time of execution or compilation, the Quartus II notifications feature will abandon attempts to send the status information during the remaining course of the compilation.

Furthermore, you will be deemed to have taken any action that you permit, assist or facilitate. You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your Account, your username or password or any other breach of security, and to ensure that you log out from your Account at the end of each Altera Cloud session. You are also responsible for properly configuring and using the Altera Cloud and taking your own steps to maintain appropriate security, protection and backup of Your Data, which may include routine archiving of Your Data. We cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with these security obligations and any other unauthorized access or use of your Account.

You understand that you are responsible for any service and equipment costs associated with obtaining access to the World Wide Web to use Altera Cloud.  You are also solely responsible for the development, content, operation, maintenance, and use of Your Data. For example, you are solely responsible for: (a) the technical operation of Your Data; (b) compliance of Your Data with these Terms of Usage, other applicable policies, and the law; and (c) any claims relating to Your Data.

In consideration of your use of Altera Cloud, you agree: (a) Your Data that you provide (Data) about yourself and your employer as prompted by the registration form (Profile Data) or otherwise during or in connection with your use of Altera Cloud (including without limitation Your Data) (Service Data) is true, accurate, current and complete, and (b) to maintain and promptly update the Data to keep it true, accurate, current, and complete. If you provide any Data or other information that is untrue, inaccurate, misleading, incomplete or not current, or we have reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, misleading, incomplete or not current, we reserve the right to immediately suspend or terminate your Account and refuse any and all current or future use of Altera Cloud by you and/or your employer.

In particular, if you change employers or employment, perform work for another company, change titles, duties or responsibilities, or move into another business group, unit or divisions with your current employer, and any such change in circumstances causes you to no longer be authorized to view, provide, receive or access any of the Data, you agree to immediately notify us of such change, re-register to open a new account and not to access or attempt to access your prior account or the Data for such account. If you remain authorized to view, provide, receive, and access any of the Data despite one or more of the changes in circumstances described above, you agree that we may ask that you specify the change in circumstances and may (but have no obligation to do so) undertake to verify that you remain so authorized. 

In any event, you agree not to provide to Altera any confidential or proprietary information, trade secrets, or other protected or protectable information or data that you do not have the authority or right to disclose. You represent and warrant that you are authorized to provide, and view, receive and access the Data in each instance that you do so.

You may only use the Altera Cloud to store, retrieve, query, serve, and execute Your Data that is owned, licensed or lawfully obtained by you.  You may not use the Altera Cloud in any manner or for any purpose other than as expressly permitted herein. You may not, or may not attempt to, (a) modify, alter, tamper with, repair, create derivative works of, or otherwise manipulate any software provided in connection with the Altera Cloud, or (b) access or use the Altera Cloud in a way intended to avoid incurring fees or exceeding usage limits or quotas.

Fees and Payment

We calculate and bill fees and charges monthly. We may bill you more frequently for fees accrued if we suspect that your account is fraudulent or at risk of non-payment. You will pay us the applicable fees and charges for use of the Altera Cloud as described on the Altera Cloud using one of the payment methods we support. All amounts payable under this Agreement will be made without setoff or counterclaim, and without any deduction or withholding. Fees and charges for any Altera Cloud service or new feature of the Altera Cloud will be effective when we post updated fees and charges on the Altera Cloud unless we expressly state otherwise in a notice. We may increase or add new fees and charges for any existing Altera Cloud services by giving you at least 30 days' advance notice. We may charge you interest at the rate of 1.5% per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less) on all late payments.

All fees and charges payable by you are exclusive of applicable taxes and duties, including VAT and applicable sales tax. You will provide us any information we reasonably request to determine whether we are obligated to collect VAT from you, including your VAT identification number. If you are legally entitled to an exemption from any sales, use, or similar transaction tax, you are responsible for providing us with legally-sufficient tax exemption certificates for each taxing jurisdiction. We will apply the tax exemption certificates to charges under your account occurring after the date we receive the tax exemption certificates. If any deduction or withholding is required by law, you will notify us and will pay us any additional amounts necessary to ensure that the net amount that we receive, after any deduction and withholding, equals the amount we would have received if no deduction or withholding had been required. Additionally, you will provide us with documentation showing that the withheld and deducted amounts have been paid to the relevant taxing authority.

Suspension and Termination of Account

You acknowledge and agree that Altera, in its sole discretion and at any time, with or without prior notice, may suspend, terminate, deactivate, block, or prevent access to or use of your password, username, Account, and the Altera Cloud (or any part thereof) for any reason whatsoever, including, without limitation, if (a) Altera believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of these Terms of Usage or acted to the detriment of Altera or its customers or any other holders of an Account; (b) any accounts are inactive for an extended period of time; and (c) any users or groups of users are not legitimate users of Altera Cloud and customers of Altera.  You further acknowledge and agree that Altera may rely on the truth, accuracy, and completeness of your Data, and any revisions, modifications, or updates thereof.  Altera may independently verify and confirm the truth, accuracy, and completeness of your Data, and any revisions, modifications, or updates thereof, by contacting your employer and any third parties.  Further, you acknowledge and agree that Altera may immediately deactivate or delete your Account and all related Data in your Account and/or bar any further access to such Data or Altera Cloud without prior notice.

You represent and warrant that you are authorized to provide, and view, receive and access the Data in each instance that you do so.

You may only use the Altera Cloud to store, retrieve, query, serve, and execute Your Data that is owned, licensed or lawfully obtained by you.  You may not use the Altera Cloud in any manner or for any purpose other than as expressly permitted herein. You may not, or may not attempt to, (a) modify, alter, tamper with, repair, create derivative works of, or otherwise manipulate any software provided in connection with the Altera Cloud, or (b) access or use the Altera Cloud in a way intended to avoid incurring fees or exceeding usage limits or quotas.

Fees and Payment

We calculate and bill fees and charges monthly. We may bill you more frequently for fees accrued if we suspect that your account is fraudulent or at risk of non-payment. You will pay us the applicable fees and charges for use of the Altera Cloud as described on the Altera Cloud using one of the payment methods we support. All amounts payable under this Agreement will be made without setoff or counterclaim, and without any deduction or withholding. Fees and charges for any Altera Cloud service or new feature of the Altera Cloud will be effective when we post updated fees and charges on the Altera Cloud unless we expressly state otherwise in a notice. We may increase or add new fees and charges for any existing Altera Cloud services by giving you at least 30 days' advance notice. We may charge you interest at the rate of 1.5% per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less) on all late payments.

All fees and charges payable by you are exclusive of applicable taxes and duties, including VAT and applicable sales tax. You will provide us any information we reasonably request to determine whether we are obligated to collect VAT from you, including your VAT identification number. If you are legally entitled to an exemption from any sales, use, or similar transaction tax, you are responsible for providing us with legally-sufficient tax exemption certificates for each taxing jurisdiction. We will apply the tax exemption certificates to charges under your account occurring after the date we receive the tax exemption certificates. If any deduction or withholding is required by law, you will notify us and will pay us any additional amounts necessary to ensure that the net amount that we receive, after any deduction and withholding, equals the amount we would have received if no deduction or withholding had been required. Additionally, you will provide us with documentation showing that the withheld and deducted amounts have been paid to the relevant taxing authority.
