BDQ End User License Agreement (EULA)
This End User License Agreement dated 10th June 2020 (the “Agreement”) is between you and Business Data Quality Limited (number 04497196) and its affiliates (“BDQ”). If you are agreeing to this Agreement not as an individual but on behalf of your company, then “Customer”, “Licensee” or “you” means your company, and you are binding your company to this Agreement. BDQ may modify this Agreement from time to time, subject to the terms in section "Changes to this Agreement" below.
By ordering, using or accessing BDQ products and services, you indicate your consent to be bound by the terms of this Agreement. If you do not agree to the terms of this Agreement, you may not install, copy, download or otherwise use the software.
1 Agreement Scope
This Agreement governs your initial purchase as well as any future purchases made by you that reference this Agreement. This Agreement covers BDQ software, add-ons or plugins, that you purchase from BDQ directly, or purchase from channels and partners such as: Atlassian's Marketplace, authorised Atlassian Solution Partners, or any other mechanisms which sell BDQ's products and which refer to this agreement.
2 Product types
This Agreement governs BDQ's commercial software products and services ("Software") which may be downloadable, as well as cloud-based services ("Hosted Services").
Software includes source code, object code, executables and associated media, icons, images, text files, pdfs or other static non-code assets contained within any form of software, printed materials, and “online” and electronic documentation and internet-based services. Software includes products which may have downloadable components. Some product categories may be specific to particular marketplaces. Products for the Atlassian marketplace include plugins for both Server (perpetual license) and Data Center (subscription license) products.
You may need to register for an account with ourselves or another partner (such as an Atlassian account) so that you can place an order, or receive or access any Software. Any registration information that you provide to us or a third party must be accurate, current and complete. We may send notices, statements and other information to you by email or through your account. You are responsible for all actions taken through your accounts, and you must keep your information up to date.
"Order" means a BDQ order whether by phone, email, or in any other form, or the invoice or other ordering document provided by BDQ or 3rd party partner or marketplace (including for example Atlassian's Marketplace) describing the products, licenses and services you are ordering from BDQ and, as applicable, their permitted scope of use. As applicable, the Order will identify items such as: (i) the Products, (ii) the number of Authorized Users, Term, and any other scope of use parameters and (iii) (for paid Orders) the amount or rate you will be charged, the billing and renewal terms, applicable currency, and form of payment. Orders may also include description of additional services.
5 Authorized Users
Unless specified otherwise, only the specific individuals for whom you have paid the required fees and whom you designate through the applicable Product (“Authorized Users”) may access and use the Products. Authorized Users may be you or your Affiliates’ employees, representatives, consultants, contractors, agents, or other third parties who are acting for your benefit or on your behalf. You may increase the number of Authorized Users permitted to access your instance of the Product by placing a new Order or, in some cases, directly through the Product. In all cases, you must pay the applicable fee for the increased number of Authorized Users. You are responsible for compliance with this Agreement by all Authorized Users. All use of Products by you and your Authorized Users must be within the scope of use and solely for the benefit of you or your Affiliates. “Affiliate” means an entity which, directly or indirectly, owns or controls, is owned or is controlled by or is under common ownership or control with a party, where “control” means the power to direct the management or affairs of an entity, and “ownership” means the beneficial ownership of 50% (or, if the applicable jurisdiction does not allow majority ownership, the maximum amount permitted under such law) or more of the voting equity securities or other equivalent voting interests of the entity.
6 Software Terms
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, BDQ grants you a non-exclusive, non-sublicenseable and non-transferable license to install and use the Software during the applicable License Term in accordance with this Agreement, excluding Hosting Services. The term of each Software license (“License Term”) will be specified in your Order. Your License Term will end upon any termination of this Agreement, even if it is identified as “perpetual” or if no expiration date is specified in your Order. Each Software license allows you to install one production instance of the Software on systems owned or operated by you (or your third party service providers so long as you remain responsible for their compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement).
6.1 Evaluation licenses
BDQ may in its sole discretion provide evaluation copies of the Software for customers to assess the Software, which may not have full functionality, or other restrictions, including use for a limited period only ("Evaluation Period"). When the Evaluation Period expires, the Software will cease to function, and the Licensee must delete all copies of the Software in its possession.
7 Support and Maintenance
BDQ shall provide maintenance and support services where specified, for the Software, during the period for which you have paid the applicable fee. Any support services provided by BDQ that are not explicitly related to maintenance and support for the Software may require additional fees to be paid.
8 Financial Terms - Atlassian
8.1 Atlassian Apps Delivery
We will deliver the applicable license keys (in the case of Software) to the email addresses specified in your Order when we have received payment of the applicable fees. All deliveries under this Agreement will be electronic. For the avoidance of doubt, you are responsible for installation of any Software, and you acknowledge that both BDQ and Atlassian have no further delivery obligation with respect to the Software after delivery of the license keys. The delivery of license keys shall be made by Atlassian through the Atlassian Marketplace on behalf of BDQ, unless other arrangements have been made directly with BDQ outside the scope of this Agreement.
8.2 Atlassian Apps Payment
You agree to pay all fees in accordance with each Order. Unless otherwise specified in your Order, you will pay all amounts in U.S. dollars at the time you place your Order unless otherwise specified in the Order. You can request a refund or exchange/upgrade of your commercial or academic server license up to 30 days after the original date of purchase or as otherwise specified in your Order. After the 30-day period, standard pricing for upgrades will apply and refunds/ exchanges will not be available. In making payments, you acknowledge that you are not relying on future availability of any Products beyond the current License Term or Subscription Term or any Product upgrades or feature enhancements.
Your payments under this Agreement exclude any taxes or duties payable in respect of the Products in the jurisdiction where the payment is either made or received. To the extent that any such taxes or duties are payable by BDQ, you must pay to BDQ the amount of such taxes or duties in addition to any fees owed under this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you may have obtained an exemption from relevant taxes or duties as of the time such taxes or duties are levied or assessed. In that case, you will have the right to provide to BDQ any such exemption information, and BDQ will use reasonable efforts to provide such invoicing documents as may enable you to obtain a refund or credit for the amount so paid from any relevant revenue authority if such a refund or credit is available.
Except as otherwise expressly permitted in this Agreement, you will not:
10.1 rent, lease, reproduce, modify, adapt, create derivative works of, distribute, sell, sublicense, transfer, or provide access to the Products to a third party,
10.2 use the Products for the benefit of any third party without prior written authorisation from BDQ.
10.3 incorporate any Products into a product or service you provide to a third party,
10.4 interfere with any license key mechanism in the Products or otherwise circumvent mechanisms in the Products intended to limit your use,
10.5 reverse engineer, disassemble, decompile, translate, or otherwise seek to obtain or derive the source code, underlying ideas, algorithms, file formats or non-public APIs to any Products, except as permitted by law,
10.6 remove or obscure any proprietary or other notices contained in any Product, or
10.7 publicly disseminate information regarding the performance of the Products. At our request, you agree to provide a signed certification that you are using all Products pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, including the scope of use.
11 Ownership and Feedback
Products are made available on a limited license or access basis, and no ownership right is conveyed to you, irrespective of the use of terms such as “purchase” or “sale”. BDQ and its licensors have and retain all right, title and interest, including all intellectual property rights, in and to the Products, their “look and feel”, any and all related or underlying technology, and any modifications or derivative works of the foregoing created by or for BDQ, including without limitation as they may incorporate Feedback (“BDQ Technology”). From time to time, you may choose to submit comments, information, questions, data, ideas, description of processes, or other information to BDQ (“Feedback”), which may or may not be in the course of receiving Support and Maintenance. BDQ may in connection with any of its products or services freely use, copy, disclose, license, distribute and exploit any Feedback in any manner without any obligation, royalty or restriction based on intellectual property rights or otherwise. No Feedback will be considered your Confidential Information, and nothing in this Agreement limits BDQ's right to independently use, develop, evaluate, or market products, whether incorporating Feedback or otherwise. BDQ and its affiliates reserve the right to identify your company as a customer in promotional materials and website. We will never identify individual users.
12.1 Except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, each party agrees that all code, inventions, know-how, business, technical and financial information disclosed to such party (“Receiving Party”) by the disclosing party ("Disclosing Party") constitute the confidential property of the Disclosing Party ("Confidential Information"), provided that it is identified as confidential at the time of disclosure. Any BDQ Technology and any performance information relating to the Products shall be deemed Confidential Information of BDQ without any marking or further designation. Except as expressly authorized herein, the Receiving Party will hold in confidence and not use or disclose any Confidential Information.
12.2 The Receiving Party's nondisclosure obligation shall not apply to information which the Receiving Party can document:
12.2.1 was rightfully in its possession or known to it prior to receipt of the Confidential Information;
12.2.2 is or has become public knowledge through no fault of the Receiving Party;
12.2.3 is rightfully obtained by the Receiving Party from a third party without breach of any confidentiality obligation; or
12.2.4 is independently developed by employees of the Receiving Party who had no access to such information.
12.2.5 The Receiving Party may also disclose Confidential Information if so required pursuant to a regulation, law or court order (but only to the minimum extent required to comply with such regulation or order and with advance notice to the Disclosing Party).
12.3 The Receiving Party acknowledges that disclosure of Confidential Information would cause substantial harm for which damages alone would not be a sufficient remedy, and therefore that upon any such disclosure by the Receiving Party the Disclosing Party shall be entitled to appropriate equitable relief in addition to whatever other remedies it might have at law. For the avoidance of doubt, this section shall not operate as a separate warranty with respect to the operation of any Product.
13 Term and Termination
Subject to the terms of this Agreement and unless terminated earlier in accordance with this Agreement, the term granted hereunder shall be set out in your License Order. Either party may terminate this Agreement before the expiration of the Term if the other party materially breaches any of the terms of this Agreement and does not cure the breach within thirty (30) days after written notice of the breach. Either party may also terminate the Agreement before the expiration of the Term if the other party ceases to operate, declares bankruptcy, or becomes insolvent or otherwise unable to meet its financial obligations. You may terminate this Agreement at any time with notice to BDQ, but you will not be entitled to any credits or refunds as a result of convenience termination for prepaid but unused Software, or Support and Maintenance. Except where an exclusive remedy may be specified in this Agreement, the exercise by either party of any remedy, including termination, will be without prejudice to any other remedies it may have under this Agreement, by law, or otherwise. Once the Agreement terminates, you (and your Authorized Users) will no longer have any right to use or access any Products, or any information or materials that we make available to you under this Agreement, including BDQ Confidential Information. You are required to delete any of the foregoing from your systems as applicable (including any third party systems operated on your behalf) and provide written certification to us that you have done so at our request. If any provision of the Agreement (or part of a provision) is found by any court or administrative body of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, the other provisions shall remain in force. If any invalid, unenforceable or illegal provision would be valid, enforceable or legal if some part of it were deleted, the provision shall apply with the minimum modification necessary to make it legal, valid and enforceable and to give effect to the commercial intention of the parties.
The following provisions will survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement: sections "Indemnity for Your Data", section "Payment", section "Taxes", section "Restrictions", section "Ownership and Feedback", section "Confidentiality", section "Term and Termination", section "Warranty Disclaimer", section "Limitation of Liability", section "Dispute Resolution", section "Export Restrictions", and section "General Provisions".
