Public Sector Terms of Use

These Public Sector Terms of Use ("TOU") govern Customer's use of the ThousandEyes, Inc. ("ThousandEyes") Service unless Customer has entered into a separate subscription agreement with ThousandEyes, in which case such separate subscription agreement will govern. Capitalized terms have the definitions set forth below. By using the ThousandEyes Services, Customer agrees to be bound by the terms of these TOU.
  1. THOUSANDEYES SERVICES
    1. SaaS Subscription. ThousandEyes offers a suite of services designed to help customers measure and monitor the availability, performance and security of web applications, hosted services and networks. The Service is provided for the Subscription Term.
    2. Support and Data Protection. Subject to these TOU and during the Subscription Term, ThousandEyes will (i) provide Support Services as described in the Support Services Policy located at: https://www.thousandeyes.com/legal/support and (ii) comply with the data protection and information security terms located at: https://www.thousandeyes.com/legal/data-privacy. These terms may be modified in ThousandEyes's discretion, provided that no update will materially diminish the level of Support Services or data protection and information security measures provided to Customer.
    3. Pre-release Version of the Service. ThousandEyes may permit Customer to access pre-release features of the Service that are not generally available to ThousandEyes customers (the "Beta Service"). Beta Services are identified as such, and Customer may elect to use or forego the use of Beta Services. Customer understands and agrees that: (i) the Beta Service is a beta test version that may contain bugs, defects and errors; (ii) it may only use the Beta Service in non-production operations and environments; (iii) the Beta Service is not expected to contain the functionality of the version of such service that ThousandEyes may make available for commercial distribution (the "Commercial Release"), and (iv) any feedback provided by Customer pertaining to the Beta Service is provided "as is" without any warranty of any kind, and may be used by ThousandEyes for development of, and incorporation into, the Commercial Release and other ThousandEyes products or services, without restriction or further obligation to Customer or any other party. ThousandEyes has no obligation to correct any bugs, defects or errors in the Beta Service or otherwise to support or maintain the Beta Service or offer a Commercial Release. Customer acknowledges that any expenditures made, research or development performed, or business plans made, by Customer regarding or in reliance upon the Beta Service are done entirely at Customer's own risk. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE BETA SERVICE AND ALL OTHER MATERIALS PROVIDED UNDER THIS SECTION ARE PROVIDED "AS IS", WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. CUSTOMER BEARS THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE USE OR PERFORMANCE OF THE BETA SERVICE.
  2. CUSTOMER RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS
    1. Access and Use. Subject to the terms and conditions in these TOU, any license quantities and additional license terms published by ThousandEyes and incorporated by reference in the Order Form, and payment of applicable fees to ThousandEyes by an Approved Source, ThousandEyes grants to Customer the limited, nonexclusive, nontransferable right to access and use the Service during the Subscription Term solely for its internal business purposes. Acceptance of the Services is complete upon ThousandEyes's provisioning of the Services for Customer.
    2. Permitted Users. Customer may permit its Permitted Users to access and use the Service, provided that: (a) Customer remains responsible for compliance with the terms and conditions of these TOU by all Permitted Users and (b) use of the Service by any Permitted User is for the sole benefit of Customer or its Affiliates. Customer will ensure that all Permitted Users keep Security Credentials strictly confidential. Customer will (a) use commercially reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorized access to or use of the Service under its account, and (b) notify ThousandEyes promptly of any such unauthorized access or use. Customer agrees that: (a) Customer is solely responsible for collecting, inputting and updating all Security Credentials; and (b) ThousandEyes assumes no responsibility for the supervision, management or control of Customer's and Customer Permitted User's Security Credentials. Customer will promptly notify ThousandEyes of any suspected or alleged violation of these TOU and will cooperate with ThousandEyes with respect to investigation by ThousandEyes of any suspected or alleged violation of these TOU. ThousandEyes may suspend or terminate any Permitted User's access to the Service in the event that it reasonably determines that such Permitted User has violated these TOU.
    3. General Restrictions. Customer will not: (a) sell, resell, rent, or lease the Service, (b) copy, provide access to, sublicense or otherwise make the Service (or any part thereof) accessible to a third party or anyone other the Permitted Users, except as expressly permitted in these TOU; (c) incorporate the Service (or any part thereof) into another product or service or otherwise use the Service to provide any product or service to a third party in any manner; (d) reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, or otherwise seek to obtain the source code to the Service, except to the extent expressly permitted by applicable law (and then only upon advance written notice to ThousandEyes); (e) modify the Service (or any part thereof) or any Documentation, or create any derivative product from any of the foregoing; (f) remove or obscure any proprietary or other notices contained in the Service (including any reports, Performance Metrics, or data printed from the Service); (g) publicly disseminate Performance Metrics or results of benchmark tests run on or by the Service; (h) use the Service in contravention of the applicable Documentation, applicable laws or government regulations; (i) attempt to gain unauthorized access to any systems, networks, or data of ThousandEyes or any third party through use of the Service; (j) interfere with or disrupt the integrity or performance of any ThousandEyes or third party systems, data, or networks through use of the Service; or (k) use the Services in violation of any third party terms of service, terms of use, or other online posted terms.
    4. Customer's Right to Use Performance Metrics. Subject to the terms and conditions of these TOU, any license quantities and additional license terms published by ThousandEyes and incorporated by reference in the Order Form, and payment of applicable fees to ThousandEyes by an Approved Source, ThousandEyes grants to Customer a limited, perpetual, royalty-free, irrevocable license to download, copy, store, make derivative works of and use Performance Metrics provided to Customer as part of the Service for any internal business purpose permitted under these TOU. For the avoidance of doubt, the aforementioned license does not pertain to Performance Metrics generated by any party other than Customer, whether aggregated or otherwise. ThousandEyes uses commercially reasonable efforts to store Performance Metrics for up to ninety (90) days.
    5. Non-ThousandEyes Providers. ThousandEyes or third parties may make available third-party products or services, including, for example, Non-ThousandEyes Applications and consulting services. Any acquisition by Customer of such products or services, and any exchange of data between Customer and any Non-ThousandEyes provider, product or service is solely between Customer and the applicable Non-ThousandEyes provider. ThousandEyes does not warrant or support such applications, products or services, whether or not designated by ThousandEyes as "Powered by ThousandEyes" or otherwise.
    6. Non-ThousandEyes Applications. If Customer chooses to use a Non-ThousandEyes Application with the Services, Customer grants ThousandEyes permission to allow the Non-ThousandEyes Application and its provider to access Customer Confidential Information solely to the extent required for the interoperation of that Non-ThousandEyes Application with the Services. ThousandEyes is not responsible for any disclosure, modification or deletion of Customer Confidential Information resulting from access by the provider of such Non-ThousandEyes Application or its provider. The Services may contain features designed to interoperate with such Non-ThousandEyes Applications. To use such features, Customer may be required to obtain access to such Non-ThousandEyes Applications from their providers and may be required to grant ThousandEyes access to Customer's account(s) on such Non-ThousandEyes Applications. ThousandEyes cannot guarantee the continued availability of such Service features, and may cease providing them without entitling Customer to any refund, credit, or other compensation, if for example and without limitation, the provider of a Non-ThousandEyes Application ceases to make the Non-ThousandEyes Application available for interoperation with the corresponding Service features in a manner acceptable to ThousandEyes.
  3. OWNERSHIP
  4. All right, title and interest (including all patent, copyright, trade secret and other intellectual property rights) in and to the ThousandEyes Technology is the exclusive property of ThousandEyes and its suppliers, and all rights not expressly granted to Customer in this Agreement are expressly reserved.
  5. TERMINATION
    1. Termination. Customer's use of the Services may be immediately terminated and/or suspended, at ThousandEyes's option, upon notice due to: (a) a breach of the terms of these TOU by Customer or any Permitted User; or (b) a breach by an Approved Source of its payment obligations to ThousandEyes with respect to the subscriptions it is reselling to Customer in connection with these TOU. Customer may terminate the Services only if required by law, and no refund for prepaid services shall be given unless and to the extent required by law.
    2. Termination of an Approved Source's Agreement with ThousandEyes. Following any termination or expiration of an Approved Source's agreement with ThousandEyes authorizing an Approved Source to resell the Services, each Customer subscription to the Services outstanding at the time of such termination or expiration ("Legacy Order") shall remain in effect until the end of its subscription term, and shall continue to be governed by these TOU, provided that Customer is not in breach of these TOU and ThousandEyes has received all payments due in connection with such Legacy Orders. Except as provided herein, following a termination or expiration of an Approved Source's agreement with ThousandEyes, ThousandEyes is under no obligation to assume a direct contractual relationship with Customer.
    3. No Refunds upon Termination. In no case will ThousandEyes's termination or suspension of the Services in accordance with these TOU, or termination of an Approved Source's agreement with ThousandEyes give rise to any liability of ThousandEyes to Customer for refunds.
    4. Survival. Sections 2.4 (Customer's Right to Use Performance Metrics), 3 (Ownership), 4 (Term and Termination), 5.2 (Warranty Disclaimer), 6 (Limitation of Liability), 7 (Confidential Information), and 8 (General Terms) will survive any expiration or termination of these TOU.
  6. LIMITED WARRANTY AND DISCLAIMER
    1. Warranty. As between ThousandEyes and Customer, ThousandEyes warrants that (a) it will deliver to Customer the Service free of any virus, trap door, worm or any other disabling device and (b) during the applicable Subscription Term the Service will operate in substantial conformity with the Documentation. ThousandEyes does not warrant that Customer's use of the Service will be uninterrupted or error-free, that ThousandEyes will review the Performance Metrics for accuracy or that it will preserve or maintain the Performance Metrics or other data without loss. ThousandEyes's sole liability and Customer's entire remedy for any breach of warranty will be for ThousandEyes to use commercially reasonable efforts to provide a workaround for the reported non-conformity or, if ThousandEyes cannot do so, then ThousandEyes will terminate the Subscription Term and cause the refund of any prepaid unearned fees to the Approved Source. This limited warranty and remedies do not apply if: (i) the error was caused by modifications to the Service or ThousandEyes Technology other than by ThousandEyes or its agents, or combination, operation or use of the Service with Customer's or a third party's applications, software, hardware, services or systems, or (ii) use by Customer of the Services outside the scope of the license in Section 2 (Customer Rights and Obligations) or otherwise in violation of these TOU.
    2. Warranty Disclaimer. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY WARRANTED IN SECTION 5.1, THOUSANDEYES MAKES NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, TITLE, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NONINFRINGEMENT. THOUSANDEYES WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR DELAYS, INTERRUPTIONS, SERVICE FAILURES, OR OTHER PROBLEMS INHERENT IN USE OF THE INTERNET, ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS, OR CAUSED BY SYSTEMS OR OTHER FACTORS OUTSIDE THOUSANDEYES'S REASONABLE CONTROL.
  7. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
    1. Consequential Damages. EXCEPT FOR VIOLATION OF SECTION 2.3 (GENERAL RESTRICTIONS) OR OTHER MISAPPROPRIATION OF THOUSANDEYES'S INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY, NEITHER PARTY WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OF USE, LOST OR INACCURATE DATA, FAILURE OF SECURITY MECHANISMS, INTERRUPTION OF BUSINESS, COSTS OF DELAY OR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, RELIANCE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING LOST PROFITS AND THE COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS AND SERVICES), REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES IN ADVANCE.

The Recipient shall, upon written request, either: (i) return to the Discloser in a secure manner, all Confidential Information (or such portion requested), including any copies, duplicates, summaries, abstracts or other representations of any such Confidential Information, in whatever form, then in its possession or control; or (ii) permanently delete such Confidential Information from its computer and storage systems and media, and destroy any and all tangible copies thereof. Upon request by the Discloser, the Recipient shall deliver to the Discloser written certification of its compliance with this provision. Customer has the sole responsibility for maintaining copies of its information and reports generated through the use of the Service.
