SDK User Terms

PLEASE READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY BEFORE USING OUR SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT KIT

Who we are and how to contact us

The Software Development Kit (“SDK”) is created and operated by Hadean Supercomputing Ltd (“We“). We are registered in England and Wales under company number 09808169 and have our registered office at 9 Appold Street, London, England, EC2A 2AP.  To contact us, please email .

By using the SDK you accept these terms

By using the SDK, you confirm that you accept these terms of use and that you agree to comply with them. If you do not agree to these terms, you must not use the SDK. We recommend that you print a copy of these terms for future reference.

If you are downloading the SDK for use within a company, group or any other business structure whereby other individuals will be able to use the SDK, including all employees, contractors, consultants or otherwise, you procure that any user of the SDK within that company, group or business structure will comply with these terms.  Any reference to “you” within these terms includes any individual who accesses the SDK from your download.

We may make changes to the SDK

We may need to update the SDK from time to time to reflect users’ needs and functionality. We can do this at any time, without providing notice to you.

SDK Availability

We do not guarantee that the SDK, or any content on or in it, will always be available or be uninterrupted. We may suspend or withdraw or restrict the availability of all or any part of it, at any time. We will try to give you reasonable notice of any suspension or withdrawal.

You must keep your account details safe

If you choose, or you are provided with, a user identification code, password or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures for accessing the SDK, you must treat such information as confidential. You must not disclose it to any third party.

We have the right to disable any user identification code or password, whether chosen by you or allocated by us, at any time, if in our reasonable opinion you have failed to comply with any of the provisions of these terms of use.

If you know or suspect that anyone other than you knows your user identification code or password, you must promptly notify us at .

Use of the SDK

You may use the SDK only for the purposes of trialling the building and running of simulations on our Aether Engine and deploying them across Microsoft’s Azure cloud, in accordance with these terms of use (“Purpose”).  The SDK is not designed for any type of commercial studio project — it is strictly a trial product that exists in a confined environment, designed for developers to test the Aether Engine’s capabilities and its developer experience. You do not have to be connected to the internet to build on the SDK and run offline locally on your computer. You must be connected to the internet to download the SDK, and to run the SDK on Microsoft Azure.

Documentation

Tutorials, training and support are provided as part of our documentation (“Documentation”) via docs.hadean.com. You may use this Documentation to support your usage of the SDK and further services that may be offered from time to time. We make no guarantee to the completeness of the Documentation. The Documentation may be updated or withdrawn without notice.

We are not responsible for websites or third-parties we link to

Where the SDK contains links to other sites and resources provided by third parties, these links are provided for your information only. Such links should not be interpreted as approval by us of those linked websites or information you may obtain from them.

Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you

  • We exclude all implied conditions, warranties, representations or other terms that may apply to the SDK or any content on it.

Your responsibility to us

You warrant that any content created by you in respect of your testing of the SDK does not breach these terms, and you will be liable to us and indemnify us for any breach of that warranty. This means you will be responsible for any loss or damage we suffer as a result of your breach of warranty. 

We also have the right to disclose your identity to any third party who is claiming that any content created by you regarding the SDK constitutes a violation of their intellectual property rights, or of their right to privacy.

We will report any such breach to the relevant law enforcement authorities and we will cooperate with those authorities by disclosing your identity to them. In the event of such a breach, your right to use our site will cease immediately.
