This Cesanta Software Ltd. Cloud Platform License Agreement (the "Agreement") is made and entered into by and between Cesanta Software Ltd. and the entity or person agreeing to these terms ("Customer"). "Cesanta" means Cesanta Software Ltd. (“Cesanta”), a company incorporated under the laws of Ireland, with offices at 13 Edward Place, Bloomfield avenue, Dublin 4, Ireland.
This Agreement is effective as of the date Customer clicks to accept the Agreement (the "Effective Date"). If you are accepting on behalf of Customer, you represent and warrant that: (i) you have full legal authority to bind Customer to this Agreement; (ii) you have read and understand this Agreement; and (iii) you agree, on behalf of Customer, to this Agreement. If you do not have the legal authority to bind Customer, please do not click to accept. This Agreement governs Customer's access to and use of the Service.
1. Provision of the Services.
1.1 Services Use. Subject to this Agreement, during the Term, Customer may: (a) use the Services, (b) integrate the Services into any Application that has material value independent of the Services. Customer may not sublicense or transfer these rights except as permitted under the Assignment section of the Agreement.
1.2 Console. Cesanta will provide the Services to Customer. As part of receiving the Services, Customer will have access to the Admin Console, through which Customer may administer the Services.
1.3 Facilities. All facilities used to store and process an Application and Customer Data will adhere to reasonable security standards no less protective than the security standards at facilities where Cesanta processes and stores its own information of a similar type. Cesanta has implemented at least industry standard systems and procedures to (i) ensure the security and confidentiality of an Application and Customer Data, (ii) protect against anticipated threats or hazards to the security or integrity of an Application and Customer Data, and (iii) protect against unauthorized access to or use of an Application and Customer Data.
1.4 Data Location. Cesanta may process and store the Customer Data anywhere Cesanta or its agents maintain facilities. By using the Services, Customer consents to this processing and storage of Customer Data. Under this Agreement, Cesanta is merely a data processor.
1.5 Accounts. Customer must have an Account and a Token (if applicable) to use the Services, and is responsible for the information it provides to create the Account, the security of the Token and its passwords for the Account, and for any use of its Account and the Token. If Customer becomes aware of any unauthorized use of its password, its Account or the Token, Customer will notify Cesanta as promptly as possible. Cesanta has no obligation to provide Customer multiple Tokens or Accounts.
1.6 New Applications and Services. Cesanta may: (i) make new applications, tools, features or functionality available from time to time through the Services and (ii) add new services to the "Services" definition from time to time (by adding them at the URL set forth under that definition), the use of which may be contingent upon Customer’s agreement to additional terms.
a. To the Services. Cesanta may make commercially reasonable updates to the Services from time to time. If Cesanta makes a material change to the Services, Cesanta will inform Customer, provided that Customer has subscribed with Cesanta to be informed about such change.
b. To the Agreement. Cesanta may make changes to this Agreement, including pricing (and any linked documents) from time to time. Unless otherwise noted by Cesanta, material changes to the Agreement will become effective 30 days after they are posted, except if the changes apply to new functionality in which case they will be effective immediately. Cesanta will provide at least 30 days’ advance notice for materially adverse changes to any SLAs by either: (1) sending an email to Customer’s primary point of contact; (ii) posting a notice in the Admin Console; or (iii) posting a notice to the applicable SLA webpage. If Customer does not agree to the revised Agreement, please stop using the Services. Cesanta will post any modification to this Agreement to the Terms URL.
c. To the Data Processing and Security Terms. Cesanta may only change the Data Processing and Security Terms where such change is required to comply with applicable law, applicable regulation, court order, or guidance issued by a governmental regulator or agency, where such change is expressly permitted by the Data Processing and Security Terms, or where such change:
(i) is commercially reasonable;
(ii)does not result in a degradation of the overall security of the Services;
(iii)does not expand the scope of or remove any restrictions on Cesanta’s processing of Customer Personal Data, as described in Section 5.2 (Scope of Processing) of the Data Processing and Security Terms; and
(iv)does not otherwise have a material adverse impact on Customer’s rights under the Data Processing and Security Terms.
If Cesanta makes a material change to the Data Processing and Security Terms in accordance with this Section, Cesanta will post the modification to the URL containing those terms.
1.8 Service Specific Terms and Data Processing and Security Terms. The Service Specific Terms and Data Processing and Security Terms are incorporated by this reference into the Agreement.
2. Payment Terms.
2.1 Free Quota. Certain Services are provided to Customer without charge up to the Fee Threshold, as applicable.
2.2 Online Billing. For use above the Fee Threshold, Customer will be responsible for all Fees up to the amount set in the Account and will pay all Fees in the currency set forth in the invoice. If Customer elects to pay by credit card, debit card, or other non-invoiced form of payment, Cesanta will charge (and Customer will pay) all Fees immediately at the end of the Fee Accrual Period.
Customer’s obligation to pay all Fees is non-cancellable. Cesanta's measurement of Customer’s use of the Services is final. Cesanta has no obligation to provide multiple bills.
2.3 Taxes. (a) Customer is responsible for any Taxes, and Customer will pay Cesanta for the Services without any reduction for Taxes. If Cesanta is obligated to collect or pay Taxes, the Taxes will be invoiced to Customer, unless Customer provides Cesanta with a timely and valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. (b) If required under applicable law, Customer will provide Cesanta with applicable tax identification information that Cesanta may require to ensure its compliance with applicable tax regulations and authorities in applicable jurisdictions. Customer will be liable to pay (or reimburse Cesanta for) any taxes, interest, penalties or fines arising out of any mis-declaration by the Customer.
2.4 Invoice Disputes & Refunds. Any invoice disputes must be submitted prior to the payment due date. If the parties determine that certain billing inaccuracies are attributable to Cesanta, Cesanta will not issue a corrected invoice, but will instead issue a credit memo specifying the incorrect amount in the affected invoice. If the disputed invoice has not yet been paid, Cesanta will apply the credit memo amount to the disputed invoice and Customer will be responsible for paying the resulting net balance due on that invoice. To the fullest extent permitted by law, Customer waives all claims relating to Fees unless claimed within sixty days after charged (this does not affect any Customer rights with its credit card issuer). Refunds (if any) are at the discretion of Cesanta and will only be in the form of credit for the Services. Nothing in this Agreement obligates Cesanta to extend credit to any party.
2.5 Delinquent Payments; Suspension. Late payments may bear interest at the rate of 1.5% per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less) from the payment due date until paid in full. Customer will be responsible for all reasonable expenses (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by Cesanta in collecting such delinquent amounts. If Customer is late on payment for the Services, Cesanta may suspend the Services or terminate the Agreement for breach pursuant to Section 9.2.
2.6 No Purchase Order Number Required. For clarity, Customer is obligated to pay all applicable Fees without any requirement for Cesanta to provide a purchase order number on Cesanta’s invoice (or otherwise).
3. Customer Obligations.
3.1 Compliance. Customer is solely responsible for its Applications, Projects, and Customer Data and for making sure its Applications, Projects, and Customer Data comply with the AUP. Cesanta reserves the right to review the Application, Project, and Customer Data for compliance with the AUP.

Unless otherwise specified in writing by Cesanta, Cesanta does not intend uses of the Services to create obligations under HIPAA, and makes no representations that the Services satisfy HIPAA requirements. If Customer is (or becomes) a Covered Entity or Business Associate, as defined in HIPAA, Customer will not use the Services for any purpose or in any manner involving Protected Health Information (as defined in HIPAA) unless Customer has received prior written consent to such use from Cesanta.
3.4 Third Party Components. Third party components (which may include open source software) of the Services may be subject to separate license agreements. To the limited extent a third party license expressly supersedes this Agreement, that third party license governs Customer’s use of that third party component.
3.5 Documentation. Cesanta may provide Documentation for Customer’s use of the Services. The Documentation may specify restrictions (e.g. attribution or HTML restrictions) on how the Applications may be built or the Services may be used and Customer will comply with any such restrictions specified.
3.6 Copyright Policy. Cesanta provides information to help copyright holders manage their intellectual property online, but Cesanta cannot determine whether something is being used legally or not without their input. Cesanta responds to notices of alleged copyright infringement and terminates accounts of repeat infringers according to applicable copyright laws including in particular the process set out in the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
4. Suspension and Removals.
4.1 Suspension/Removals. If Customer becomes aware that any Application, Project, or Customer Data violates the AUP, Customer will immediately suspend the Application or Project and/or remove the relevant Customer Data (as applicable). If Customer fails to suspend or remove as noted in the prior sentence, Cesanta may specifically request that Customer do so. If Customer fails to comply with Cesanta’s request to do so within twenty-four hours, then Cesanta may disable the Project or Application, and/or disable the Account (as may be applicable) until such violation is corrected.
4.2 Emergency Security Issues. Despite the foregoing, if there is an Emergency Security Issue, then Cesanta may automatically suspend the offending Application, Project, and/or Account. Suspension will be to the minimum extent required, and of the minimum duration, to prevent or resolve the Emergency Security Issue. If Cesanta suspends an Application, Project, or the Account, for any reason, without prior notice to Customer, at Customer’s request, Cesanta will provide Customer the reason for the suspension as soon as is reasonably possible.
5. Intellectual Property Rights; Use of Customer Data; Feedback.
5.1 Intellectual Property Rights. Except as expressly set forth in this Agreement, this Agreement does not grant either party any rights, implied or otherwise, to the other’s content or any of the other’s intellectual property.

6. Technical Support Services
6.1 By Customer. Customer is responsible for technical support of its Applications and Projects.
6.2 By Cesanta. Subject to payment of applicable support Fees, Cesanta will provide TSS to Customer during the Term in accordance with the TSS Guidelines. Certain TSS levels include a minimum recurring Fee as described in the "Fees" definition below. If Customer downgrades its TSS level during any calendar month, Cesanta may continue to provide TSS at the same level and TSS Fees before the downgrade for the remainder of that month.

7.2 Deprecation Policy. Cesanta will announce if it intends to discontinue or make backwards incompatible changes to the Services specified at the URL in the next sentence. Cesanta will use commercially reasonable efforts to continue to operate those Services versions and features identified at https://cesanta.com/blog/ without these changes for at least three months after that announcement, unless (as Cesanta determines in its reasonable good faith judgment):
(i) required by law or third party relationship (including if there is a change in applicable law or relationship), or

The above policy is the "Deprecation Policy."
