Terms and Conditions
PART I. General Terms of Sale
These General Terms of Sale govern the sale of products and services by WANTECH Innovation Technology Limited. and its affiliates (collectively, "WANTECH.") to the client. Additional terms may apply for services provided by WANTECH (for example, the Subscription Agreement). If these additional terms are inconsistent with the General Terms of Sale, the additional terms will prevail over these General Terms of Sale.
Please read these terms carefully before placing an order with WANTECH. By accepting an order with WANTECH, the client marks his acceptance with these terms.
The client explicitly waives its own standard terms and conditions, even if these were drawn up after these standard terms and conditions of sale. In order to be valid, any derogation must be expressly agreed to in advance in writing.
Our invoices are payable within 7 working days, unless another payment timeframe is indicated on either the invoice or the order. In the event of non-payment by the due date, WANTECH reserves the right to request a fixed interest payment amounting to 15% of the sum remaining due. WANTECH will be authorised to suspend any provision of services without prior warning in the event of late payment.
Certain countries apply withholding at source on the amount of invoices, in accordance with their internal legislation. Any withholding at source will be paid by the client to the tax authorities. Under no circumstances can WANTECH become involved in costs related to a country's legislation. The amount of the invoice will therefore be due to WANTECH in its entirety and does not include any costs relating to the legislation of the country in which the client is located.
WANTECH undertakes to do its best to supply services in due time in accordance with the agreed timeframes. However, none of its obligations can be considered as being an obligation to achieve results. WANTECH cannot, under any circumstances, be required by the client to appear as a third party in the context of any claim for damages filed against the client by an end consumer.
In order for it to be admissible, WANTECH must be notified of any claim by means of a letter sent by recorded delivery to its registered office within 8 days of the delivery of the goods or the provision of the services.
To the maximum extent permitted by law, the aggregate liability of each party together with its affiliates arising will not exceed 50% of the total amount paid by the Customer under these terms during the 12 months immediately preceding the date of the event giving rise to such claim. Multiple claims shall not enlarge this limitation.
WANTECH reserves the right to modify these terms at
any time without prior notice. The client will be subject to the terms in force
at the time of acceptation of those terms.
All our contractual relations will be governed exclusively by Hong Kong law.

Part IV. Security
Your security is very important to us! Here is a summary of what we do every day to guarantee that your data is safe with W+ERP and that we apply best security practices on our hosted version, the W+ERP Cloud. Table of contents
RPO (Recovery Point Objective) = 24h. This means you can lose max 24h of work if the data cannot be recovered and we need to restore your latest daily backup
RTO (Recovery Time Objective) = 24h for paid subscriptions, 48h for free trials, education offer, freemium users, etc. This is the time to restore the service in a different data center if a disaster occurs and a datacenter is completely down.
How is this accomplished:
We utilize the Detection module to discover that the master node has an exception and instructs the Repair module to fix it. If the Repair module fails to resolve the problem, the Notice module will be informed of this information. The Notice module then forwards the failover request to the SLB or Proxy module, which begins to redirect all traffic to the slave node. At the same time, the Repair module creates a new slave node on another physical server and synchronizes this change back to the Detection module. The Detection module starts to recheck the health status of the instance. ECS Instance failover, it should take about 5-10 mins in same zone. RTO if the data center is completely down, we will begin to redirect all traffic to the slave node in different region. We can restore the daily snapshot (backup) to any server, within 5-10 mins. It may take time to debug and change the client configuration.
Customer passwords are protected with industry-standard PBKDF2+SHA512 encryption (salted + stretched for thousands of rounds)
W+ERP staff does not have access to your password, and cannot retrieve it for you, the only option if you lose it is to reset it
Login credentials are always transmitted securely over HTTPS
W+ERP helpdesk staff may sign into your account to access settings related to your support issue. For this they use their own special staff credentials, not your password (which they have no way to know) This special staff access improves efficiency and security: they can immediately reproduce the problem you are seeing, you never need to share your password, and we can audit and control staff actions separately! Our Helpdesk staff strives to respect your privacy as much as possible, and only access files and settings needed to diagnose and resolve your issue
All W+ERP Cloud servers are running hardened Linux distributions with up-to-date security patches Installations are ad-hoc and minimal to limit the number of services that could contain vulnerabilities (no PHP/MySQL stack for example)
W+ERP Cloud servers are hosted in trusted data centers in various regions of the world (e.g. AliCloud), and they must all exceed our physical security criterions:
Restricted perimeter, physically accessed by authorized data center employees only
Credit Card Safety
All web connections to client instances are protected with SSL encryption Our servers are kept under a strict security watch, and always patched against the latest SSL vulnerabilities, enjoying SSL ratings at all times.
All data center providers used by W+ERP Cloud have very large network capacities, and have designed their infrastructure to withstand the largest Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. Their automatic and manual mitigation systems can detect and divert attack traffic at the edge of their multi-continental networks, before it gets the chance to disrupt service availability.
Firewalls and intrusion prevention systems on W+ERP Cloud servers help detect and block threats such as brute-force password attacks.
As of Odoo 12.0, customer database administrators even have the option to configure the rate limiting and cooldown duration for repeated login attempts.
W+ERP is open source, so the whole codebase is continuously under examination by W+ERP users and contributors worldwide. Community bug reports are therefore one important source of feedback regarding security. We encourage developers to audit the code and report security issues. The W+ERP R&D processes have code review steps that include security aspects, for new and contributed pieces of code.
Secure by design
W+ERP is designed in a way that prevents introducing most common security vulnerabilities:
SQL injections are prevented by the use of a higher-level API that does not require manual SQL queries XSS attacks are prevented by the use of a high-level templating system that automatically escapes injected data The framework prevents RPC access to private methods, making it harder to introduce exploitable vulnerabilities See also the OWASP Top Vulnerabilities section to see how W+ERP is designed from the ground up to prevent such vulnerabilities from appearing.
OWASP Top Vulnerabilities
- Injection Flaws: Injection flaws, particularly SQL injection, are common in web applications. Injection occurs when user-supplied data is sent to an interpreter as part of a command or query. The attacker's hostile data tricks the interpreter into executing unintended commands or changing data. W+ERP relies on an object-relational-mapping (ORM) framework that abstracts query building and prevents SQL injections by default. Developers do not normally craft SQL queries manually, they are generated by the ORM, and parameters are always properly escaped.
Cross Site Scripting (XSS): XSS flaws occur whenever an application takes user supplied data and sends
it to a web browser without first validating or encoding that content. XSS allows attackers to execute
scripts in the victim's browser which can hijack user sessions, deface web sites, possibly introduce
The W+ERP framework escapes all expressions rendered into views and pages by default, preventing XSS. Developers have to specially mark expressions as "safe" for raw inclusion into rendered pages.
Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF): A CSRF attack forces a logged-on victim’s browser to send a forged
HTTP request, including the victim’s session cookie and any other automatically included
authentication information, to a vulnerable web application. This allows the attacker to force the
victim’s browser to generate requests the vulnerable application thinks are legitimate requests from
The wpluserp website engine includes a built-in CSRF protection mechanism. It prevents any HTTP controller to receive a POST request without the corresponding security token. This is the recommended technique for CSRF prevention. This security token is only known and present when the user genuinely accessed the relevant website form, and an attacker cannot forge a request without it.
Malicious File Execution: Code vulnerable to remote file inclusion (RFI) allows attackers to include
hostile code and data, resulting in devastating attacks, such as total server compromise.
W+ERP does not expose functions to perform remote file inclusion. However it allows privileged users to customize features by adding custom expressions that will be evaluated by the system. These expressions are always evaluated by a sandboxed and sanitized environment that only allows access to permitted functions.
Insecure Direct Object Reference: A direct object reference occurs when a developer exposes a
reference to an internal implementation object, such as a file, directory, database record, or key, as
a URL or form parameter. Attackers can manipulate those references to access other objects without
W+ERP access control is not implemented at the user interface level, so there is no risk in exposing references to internal objects in URLs. Attackers cannot circumvent the access control layer by manipulation those references, because every request still has to go through the data access validation layer.
Insecure Cryptographic Storage: Web applications rarely use cryptographic functions properly to
protect data and credentials. Attackers use weakly protected data to conduct identity theft and other
crimes, such as credit card fraud.
W+ERP uses industry-standard secure hashing for user passwords (by default PKFDB2 + SHA-512, with key stretching) to protect stored passwords. It is also possible to use external authentication systems such as OAuth 2.0 or LDAP, in order to avoid storing user passwords locally at all.
Insecure Communications: Applications frequently fail to encrypt network traffic when it is necessary
to protect sensitive communications.
W+ERP Cloud runs on HTTPS by default. For on-premise installations, it is recommend to run Odoo behind a web server implementing the encryption and proxying request to W+ERP, for example Apache, Lighttpd or nginx.
Failure to Restrict URL Access: Frequently an application only protects sensitive functionality by
preventing the display of links or URLs to unauthorized users. Attackers can use this weakness to
access and perform unauthorized operations by accessing those URLs directly
W+ERP access control is not implemented at the user interface level, and the security does not rely on hiding special URLs. Attackers cannot circumvent the access control layer by reusing or manipulating any URL, because every request still has to go through the data access validation layer. In rare cases where a URL provides unauthenticated access to sensitive data, such as special URLs customer use to confirm an order, these URLs are digitally signed with unique tokens and only sent via email to the intended recipient.
