Order Forms; Access to the Service. Contrast and Customer may mutually execute one or more written order forms which reference this Agreement (each, an “Order Form”), and upon mutual execution, each Order Form shall be incorporated into and form a part of the Agreement. Subject to Customer’s compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement (including any limitations and restrictions set forth on the applicable Order Form) Contrast grants Customer the right to access and use the services specified in each Order Form (collectively, the “Service,” or “Services”) during the applicable Order Form Term (as defined below) for the internal business purposes of Customer, only as provided herein and only in accordance with Contrast’s official user documentation set forth at contrastsecurity.com/support (the “Documentation”). Customer may only use the Service to manage and analyze the maximum aggregate number of Applications (as defined below) set forth on the applicable Order Form, and once Customer has used the Service to manage or analyze a particular Application, that Application will permanently count toward the number of maximum allowable Applications, and may not be replaced by another Application. For purposes of this Agreement, “Application” shall have the meaning set forth at https://www.contrastsecurity.com/appdefinition_1016a.
Support; Service Levels. Contrast will provide support and uptime for the Service in accordance with (i) the support package selected by Customer on the applicable Order Form (if any), and (ii) Contrast’s then-current standard Support and Availability Policy set forth at contrastsecurity.com/tos.
Service Updates. From time to time, Contrast may provide upgrades, patches, enhancements, or fixes for the Services to its customers generally without additional charge (“Updates”), and such Updates will become part of the Services and subject to this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Contrast shall have no obligation under this Agreement or otherwise to provide any such Updates.
Ownership; Restrictions; Feedback. As between the parties, Contrast retains all right, title, and interest in and to the Services, and all software, products, works, and other intellectual property and moral rights related thereto or created, used, or provided by Contrast for the purposes of this Agreement, including any copies and derivative works of the foregoing. Any software which is distributed or otherwise provided to Customer hereunder shall be deemed a part of the “Services”. No rights or licenses are granted except as expressly and unambiguously set forth in this Agreement. Customer may from time to time provide suggestions, comments or other feedback to Contrast with respect to the Service (“Feedback”). Feedback, even if designated as confidential by Customer, shall not create any confidentiality obligation for Contrast notwithstanding anything else. Customer shall, and hereby does, grant to Contrast a nonexclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, transferable, sublicensable, royalty-free, fully paid up license to use and exploit the Feedback for any purpose; provided that such license grant shall not be construed to relieve Contrast of any confidentiality obligations it may have hereunder with respect to Customer Data. Nothing in this Agreement will impair Contrast’s right to develop, acquire, license, market, promote or distribute products, software or technologies that perform the same or similar functions as, or otherwise compete with any products, software or technologies that Customer may develop, produce, market, or distribute.
Fees; Payment. Customer shall pay Contrast fees for the Service as set forth in each Order Form (“Fees”). Unless otherwise specified in an Order Form, all Fees shall be invoiced annually in advance and all invoices issued under this Agreement are payable in U.S. dollars within thirty (30) days from date of invoice. Past due invoices are subject to interest on any outstanding balance of the lesser of 1.5% per month or the maximum amount permitted by law. Customer shall be responsible for all taxes associated with Service other than taxes based on Contrast’s net income. All Fees paid are non-refundable and are not subject to set-off.
Except as expressly set forth in this Agreement, Customer shall not (and shall not permit any third party to), directly or indirectly: (i) reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, or otherwise attempt to discover the source code, object code, or underlying structure, ideas, or algorithms of the Service (except to the extent applicable laws specifically prohibit such restriction); (ii) modify, translate, or create derivative works based on the Service; (iii) copy, rent, lease, distribute, pledge, assign, or otherwise transfer or encumber rights to the Service; (iv) use the Service for the benefit of a third party; (v) remove or otherwise alter any proprietary notices or labels from the Service or any portion thereof; (vi) use the Service to build an application or product that is competitive with any Contrast product or service. Customer is responsible for all of Customer’s activity in connection with the Service, including but not limited to uploading Customer Data (as defined below) onto the Service. Customer (i) shall use the Service in compliance with all applicable local, state, national and foreign laws, treaties and regulations in connection with Customer’s use of the Service (including those related to data privacy, international communications, export laws and the transmission of technical or personal data laws), and (ii) shall not use the Service in a manner that violates any third party intellectual property, contractual or other proprietary rights. Additionally, Customer shall not: (i) interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper working of the Service or any activities conducted on the Service; or (ii) bypass any measures Contrast may use to prevent or restrict access to the Service (or other accounts, computer systems or networks connected to the Service).
Customer Data. For purposes of this Agreement, “Customer Data” shall mean any data, information or material provided, uploaded, or submitted by Customer to the Service in the course of using the Service. Customer shall retain all right, title and interest in and to the Customer Data (as defined below), including all intellectual property rights therein. Customer, not Contrast, shall have sole responsibility for the accuracy, quality, integrity, legality, reliability, appropriateness, and intellectual property ownership or right to use of all Customer Data. Contrast shall use commercially reasonable efforts to maintain the security and integrity of the Service and the Customer Data. Contrast is not responsible to Customer for unauthorized access to Customer Data or the unauthorized use of the Service unless such access is due to Contrast’s gross negligence or willful misconduct. Customer is responsible for the use of the Service by any person to whom Customer has given access to the Service, and any person who gains access to Customer Data, even if Customer did not authorize such use. Customer agrees and acknowledges that Customer Data may be irretrievably deleted if Customer’s account is ninety (90) days or more delinquent. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Customer acknowledges and agrees that Contrast may (i) internally use and modify (but not disclose) Customer Data for the purposes of (A) providing the Service to Customer and (B) generating Aggregated Anonymous Data, and (ii) freely use and make available Aggregated Anonymous Data for Contrast’s business purposes. “Aggregated Anonymous Data” means data submitted to, collected by or generated by Contrast in connection with Customer’s use of the Service, but only in aggregate, anonymized form which can in no way be linked specifically to Customer. Customer shall own and hereby reserves all right, title and interest in the Customer Data.
Identifying Licensee as Client. During the Order Form Term, Customer grants Contrast the limited right to use Customer’s corporate names, logos, and trademarks (“Marks”) in Contrast’s websites and marketing materials for the sole purpose of identifying Customer as a client. Contrast will use the Marks only in a manner that complies in all material respects with Customer’s trademark usage policies that may be provided by Customer to Contrast from time to time. If Contrast, in the course of performing this Agreement, acquires any goodwill or reputation in any of the Marks, all such goodwill or reputation will automatically vest in Customer when and as, on an on-going basis, such acquisition of goodwill or reputation occurs, as well as at the expiration or termination of this Agreement.
Term; Termination. This Agreement shall commence on the Effective Date and, unless earlier terminated in accordance herewith, shall last until the expiration of all Order Form Terms. For each Order Form, the “Order Form Term” means the subscription period set forth on such Order Form, including any applicable renewals thereof. In the event of a material breach of this Agreement by the either party, the non-breaching party may terminate this Agreement by providing written notice to the breaching party, provided that the breaching party does not materially cure such breach within thirty (30) days of receipt of such notice. Without limiting the foregoing, Contrast may suspend or limit Customer’s access to or use of the Service if (i) Customer’s account is more than sixty (60) days past due, or (ii) Customer’s use of the Service results in (or is reasonably likely to result in) damage to or material degradation of the Service which interferes with Contrast’s ability to provide access to the Service to other customers; provided that in the case of subsection (ii): (a) Contrast shall use reasonable good faith efforts to work with Customer to resolve or mitigate the damage or degradation in order to resolve the issue without resorting to suspension or limitation; (b) prior to any such suspension or limitation, Contrast shall use commercially reasonable efforts to provide notice to Customer describing the nature of the damage or degradation; and (c) Contrast shall reinstate Customer’s use of or access to the Service, as applicable, if Customer remediates the issue within thirty (30) days of receipt of such notice. All provisions of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, accrued payment obligations, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.
Each party (“Indemnitor”) shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the other party, its affiliates and each of its and its affiliates’ employees, contractors, directors, suppliers and representatives (collectively, the “Indemnitee”) from all liabilities, claims, and expenses paid or payable to an unaffiliated third party (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) (“Losses”), that arise from or relate to any claim that (i) the Customer Data or Customer’s use of the Service (in the case of Customer as Indemnitor), or (ii) the Service (in the case of Contrast as Indemnitor), infringes, violates, or misappropriates any third party intellectual property or proprietary right. Each Indemnitor’s indemnification obligations hereunder shall be conditioned upon the Indemnitee providing the Indemnitor with: (i) prompt written notice of any claim (provided that a failure to provide such notice shall only relieve the Indemnitor of its indemnity obligations if the Indemnitor is materially prejudiced by such failure); (ii) the option to assume sole control over the defense and settlement of any claim (provided that the Indemnitee may participate in such defense and settlement at its own expense); and (iii) reasonable information and assistance in connection with such defense and settlement (at the Indemnitor’s expense). The foregoing obligations of Contrast do not apply with respect to the Service or any information, technology, materials or data (or any portions or components of the foregoing) to the extent (i) not created or provided by Contrast, (ii) made in whole or in part in accordance to Customer specifications, (iii) modified after delivery by Contrast, (iv) combined with other products, processes or materials not provided by Contrast (where the alleged Losses arise from or relate to such combination), (v) where Customer continues allegedly infringing activity after being notified thereof or after being informed of modifications that would have avoided the alleged infringement, or (vi) Customer’s use of the Service is not strictly in accordance herewith.
Warranty; Disclaimer. Contrast represents and warrants that, during the applicable Order Form Term, the Service will operate in substantial conformance with the Documentation. As Customer’s sole remedy (and Contrast’s sole liability) for any breach of the warranty set forth in the foregoing sentence, Contrast shall use commercially reasonable efforts to correct the applicable nonconformance. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH HEREIN, THE SERVICE IS PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” AND ARE WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND ANY WARRANTIES IMPLIED BY ANY COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, USAGE OF TRADE, OR COURSE OF DEALING, ALL OF WHICH ARE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMED.
Limitation of Liability. EXCEPT FOR THE PARTIES’ INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS, IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY, NOR ITS DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, PARTNERS, SUPPLIERS OR CONTENT PROVIDERS, BE LIABLE UNDER CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY, NEGLIGENCE OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY WITH RESPECT TO THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS AGREEMENT (I) FOR ANY LOST PROFITS, DATA LOSS, COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES, OR SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER, SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES (HOWEVER ARISING), (II) FOR ANY BUGS, VIRUSES, TROJAN HORSES, OR THE LIKE (REGARDLESS OF THE SOURCE OF ORIGINATION), OR (III) FOR ANY DIRECT DAMAGES IN EXCESS OF (IN THE AGGREGATE) THE FEES PAID (OR PAYABLE) BY CUSTOMER TO CONTRAST HEREUNDER IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTHS PRIOR TO THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO A CLAIM HEREUNDER.
