Legal Department” in the subject line. Foleon may send notices to the email addresses on the Customer’s account or, at Foleon’s option, to the Customer’s last-known postal address. Foleon may also provide operational notices regarding the Service or other business-related notices through conspicuous posting of the notice on Foleon’s website or the Service.

If Foleon launches new products or optional features that require opt-in acceptance of new terms, those terms will apply upon the Customer’s acceptance or use. If Customer accepts new Order Forms or Order Form changes following the modification, the changes will take effect immediately. However, during a Subscription Term, Foleon may update Foleon’s policies, including without limitation the Acceptable Use Policy, and Documentation from time-to-time to reflect process improvements or changing practices, provided these changes do not substantially diminish the Customer’s rights or create substantial additional Customer obligations during a Subscription Term, and these changes will take immediate effect from the date of posting.
