AWS Management Portal (AAMP)
AAMP is accessible at: https://aamp.digitalspace.co.uk
The terms of this Agreement will apply notwithstanding any terms attached to any purchase order or otherwise provided to Digital Space by a Client.
If there is any conflict between the Digital Space Terms and/or the Framework Terms, the Framework Terms will take precedence over the Digital Space Terms.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a set of cloud hosting services provided by a subsidiary of Amazon.com.
Framework Terms are the terms of the Geant IaaS framework, which can be found at this URL: https://clouds.geant.org/amazon-web-services/. This framework agreement applies now to all non-UK usage of the portal and will apply to all UK usage from 15th August 2018 onwards;
Use of AAMP
You are responsible for maintaining the accuracy of data within AAMP
The AAMP service is provided to clients free of charge. While we endeavour to provide accurate and timely cost and usage information via the service, we note that there are several factors that can cause variances between the amounts shown in the portal and the amounts that clients are required to pay on invoices. For the avoidance of doubt, the client must pay the invoice amount, regardless of any variances between it and the amount shown on the portal. The factors that can cause such variances include but are not limited to the following: educational discounts; exchange rate fluctuations; AWS Marketplace charges, AWS Reserved Instance upfront charges, AWS Support charges, errors in data imports and changes by AWS in the format of its billing data.
You have the sole responsibility for putting in place and maintaining the controls that you require around the ability of persons to log into the AAMP Account. You have responsibility for ensuring that the Customer Log-in Details are restricted and protected appropriately and for all actions taken with the Customer Log-in Details.

Further, we do not accept any liability for costs incurred as a result of any failure of the AAMP Service including but not limited to lack of availability, inaccuracies in reporting and failure to generate alerts.
However, we will use reasonable endeavours to provide the Customer with advance notice before making any material change.
In the event of unavailability of AAMP, invoices and other items usually available on AAMP may be obtained from us upon request.
We have the right to discontinue or suspend AAMP in respect of any one or more of the Customer’s accounts where you have:
- set up more than one account for the same supply,
