To the extent this Agreement conflicts with the express terms of a Subscription Order, the terms of the Subscription Order will prevail.
2.2 Trial Access. If Entelo makes access to the Service available to Subscriber without charge on a trial basis for a limited period, the agreement between Subscriber and Entelo concerning the trial period and any limitations or restrictions on use of the Service, however documented, will be considered a Subscription Order, and the specified trial period will be considered the Subscription Period.

3.2 Seats. Subscriber may have only as many User accounts (“Seats”) activated for access to the Service at any time as specified in an applicable Subscription Order.
3.3 Restrictions on Seats. No Seat may be shared by more than one User. Entelo may track the usage of the Service and disallow use of more than the authorized number of Seats. Subscriber may transfer a Seat from one User to another if Subscriber advises Entelo in advance of the transfer and provides the information reasonably requested by Entelo about the new User. The transfer will be effective when Entelo returns a confirmation of the transfer via the Service or email to Subscriber. Subscriber may transfer a particular Seat no more often than four times in any twelve-month period, unless Entelo agrees otherwise in writing.
3.4 Subscription Fees. Subscriber agrees to pay the Subscription Fees to Entelo. Subscription Fees are (a) based on the features of the Service and level of use ordered and not on actual usage and (b) non-cancelable and non-refundable.
