Terms of Service

READ THESE TERMS THOROUGHLY.  BY ACCEPTING THESE TERMS YOU ARE ENTERING INTO A LEGALLY BINDING AGREEMENT WITH HEWLETT PACKARD ENTERPRISE COMPANY (HPE).

 

 1.  Acceptance of terms

 

By using HPE’s Cloud Cruiser online and offline products and services (collectively, “the Service”), provided by HPE, (collectively, “HPE”, “We” or “Us”) you agree to be bound by the following Terms of Service (“TOS”). We may update the TOS from time to time without notice.  The terms of this TOS may not be amended, altered or changed by an purchase order or other instrument submitted by you, whether formally rejected by HPE or not.  You can review the most current version of the TOS at any time at: https://www.cloudcruiser.com/TOS/.

 

If you are entering into this agreement on behalf of a company or other legal entity (the “Company”), you represent that you have the authority to bind the entity to these terms and conditions, in which case the terms “you” or “your” shall refer to the entity. If you do not have such authority, or if you do not agree with these terms and conditions, you may not use the Service.  You acknowledge and agree, (both on behalf of yourself and your Company) that, all use of the Service, via the HPE user interface or otherwise, requires a fully paid and HPE authorized subscription to the Service (the “Authorized Users”).  An Authorized User means an individual who (i) accesses the Service or (ii) has an email account utilized in the Service (whether a user, administrator or recipient of generated reports/analytics/information.  The Authorized User quantity associated with your purchase is shown on your Order Form and is allocated by HPE on an individual basis.  Each individual Authorized User within a subscribing entity must have an independent (unshared) password and email address authorized by HPE.  Additional paid users may be authorized to use the Service under the same account (including, without limitation, the ability to authorize other additional users, as applicable) via purchase of additional Authorized User packs from HPE.  You acknowledge and agree that (i) HPE is authorized (but not obligated) to act on behalf of, and in accordance with, any instructions or requests made by Authorized Users, and (ii) HPE shall not be liable in any manner whatsoever with respect to (A) following instructions or requests made by Authorized Users, or (B) for any actions taken by such Authorized Users in connection with the Service.

 

You understand and agree that the Service may include certain communications from HPE, such as service announcements, administrative messages and advertising of additional products and services, and that these communications are considered part of Service and that you will not be able to opt out of receiving them. Changes and features that augment or enhance the current Service shall be subject to the TOS. You understand and agree that the Service is provided “as is” and that HPE assumes no responsibility for the timeliness, deletion, mis-delivery of or failure to store any user content or settings. You are responsible for obtaining access to the Service, which access may involve third-party fees (such as Internet Service Provider charges).  In addition, you must provide and are responsible for all equipment necessary to access the Service.

 

Without HPE’s written consent: (i) you may not access the Service for purposes of monitoring its performance, availability, or functionality, or for any other benchmarking, competitive or disparaging purposes, (ii) make the Service available to others over the internet or any other publicly accessible network or technology, (iii) publish or disclose to any third-party comments, reviews or insights, and (iv) access the Service if you are a direct competitor of HPE or otherwise intend to use Service in a manner other than its reasonable intended use.

 

If you are an evaluation, trial or pilot user your access to the Service is granted at HPE’s sole discretion and is for customer pre-purchase evaluation, trial or pilot usage only, as applicable.  The evaluation term period and access shall be determined solely by HPE and may be terminated or restricted at any time with or without notice (without any liability whatsoever).

 

2.  Your account

 

In consideration of your use of the Service, you represent and warrant that (i) you are of legal age to form a binding contract and are not a person barred from receiving services under the laws of the United States or any other applicable jurisdiction, (ii) your use of the Service does not violate any applicable law or regulation, and (iii) you are human.  Accounts registered by “bots” or other automated methods are not permitted. You also agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself (and your Company, if applicable) as prompted by the Service’s registration form (“Registration Data”); and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or HPE has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, HPE has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service (or any portion thereof).

 

Registration Data and certain other information about you is subject to our Privacy Policy which is incorporated by reference herein in its entirety. For more information, see our full privacy policy at:  http://www8.hp.com/us/en/hpe/privacy/master-policy.html.

 

You may receive a password and account designation upon completing the Service’s registration process. In such event, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password and account and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account. You agree to (a) immediately notify HPE of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security; and (b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. HPE cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the TOS, including, without limitation, this Section 2.

 

3.  Billing

 

We will begin billing you for subscription fees corresponding to your subscription plan, plus any applicable tax, at the beginning of your subscription period. We will bill the subscription fee plus any applicable tax to you.

 

By using the Service, you are expressly agreeing that we are permitted to bill you a subscription fee, any applicable tax and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the Service. Other charges may include changes you request with respect to the number of data collectors (“Collectors”) and/or the number of Authorized Users associated with the Service. The standard Service subscription is limited to five (5) Authorized Users (which is one “Authorized User Pack”).  You may purchase additional Authorized User Packs at any time.  You are responsible for monitoring the number of Authorized Users accessing the Service.  You are responsible for payment of any unauthorized users of the Service (i.e. users above the Authorized User quantity for which you have paid).  We will bill you for the number of Authorized User packs necessary to bring you into compliance with these terms, including your unauthorized use in arrears.

 

We will automatically bill you each subscription/billing period on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement date of the Service.  Except as otherwise set forth in Section 12 (Termination and cancelation), fees and charges are nonrefundable, except that refunds may apply to prepaid subscription fees for which proper notice of termination has been provided to and accepted by HPE pursuant to Section 12 (Termination and cancellation).   Refunds will not apply in cases where you have elected to downgrade service levels or otherwise remove any paid component or feature. If you elect to upgrade your service level or otherwise add any paid component or feature, we will pro-rate the amount due based on the number of days remaining in your subscription/billing period; provided, however, that any such proration shall be based on your service level or paid components or features in existence immediately prior to your election to upgrade or add paid components or features. We may change the fees and charges in effect or add new fees and charges from time to time. We will inform you of any increase or addition to existing fees and we may offer you a grace-period in which your fees will not increase for a certain period of time. If you do not accept the increase or addition to the existing fees, you may elect to terminate your account during the then current subscription/billing period and you shall not be liable for such fee increase after the applicable subscription/billing period; however, any later renewal of service will be subject to the increased fee structure.

 

If you change your service level (downgrade it), you may cause the loss of Content or features for your account. HPE does not accept any liability for such loss. We do not provide refunds or credits for any partial subscription periods or any feature or component that you have paid for but not used.

 

In connection with your purchase and/or use of the Service you may be subject to taxes, including, without limitation, sales and use taxes, by any authority that has jurisdiction to impose such taxes. You agree that the obligation and payment of any such taxes shall be your sole and absolute responsibility, and you agree to indemnify HPE pursuant to Section 6(vi) to the extent that HPE incurs any obligations or other liabilities in connection with such taxes.

 

For free trial users, you will not receive a notice from us that your free trial has ended or that your paying subscription has begun.

In this regard, you acknowledge that you may not rely on any Content submitted to HPE.

 

You acknowledge, consent and agree that HPE may access, preserve and disclose your account information, Content and Data if required to do so by any applicable law or in a good faith belief that such access preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (a) comply with any applicable legal process; (b) enforce the TOS; (c) respond to claims that any Content violates the rights of third parties; (d) respond to your requests for customer service; or (e) protect the rights, property or personal safety of HPE, its users and the public.

 

You understand that the technical processing and transmission of the Service, including your Content and Data, may involve (a) transmissions over various networks; and (b) changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks or devices.

5.  Ownership and License of Content and Data; Data Security

The term “System Data” shall mean all data and information about your systems and usage thereof (including, without limitation, the systems of your own clients, subcontractors and users, as applicable, and their respective usage thereof), which is either provided in connection with, uploaded to, or managed by, the Service.  For the purpose of providing the Service, you authorize HPE to collect such System Data by utilizing one or more HPE Collectors, which consists of a software interface that is connected to your Cloud or Infrastructure specific element.  Such System Data is owned by you and shall not be deemed to be Content; provided, however, HPE reserves the right to collect, analyze, combine and utilize Non-Identifiable Data (as such term is defined below) from the Service for internal and commercial purposes including without limitation, research, benchmarking, sharing, developing enhancements to the Software and/or creating, selling, and licensing other HPE products or services.  The term “Non-Identifiable Data” shall mean System Data which has been compiled, extracted, modified, anonymized or aggregated in such a manner that the individual source of the data cannot reasonably identify You by name.  You grant HPE a worldwide, royalty-free, fully-paid, perpetual, irrevocable, transferable and fully sublicensable right to use such Non-Identifiable Data in any manner, including, without limitation, for commercial purposes.
