Updated: October 6, 2021
This OpsCruise Service Agreement (“Service Agreement”) describes your rights and responsibilities as a customer of our Services. These Terms are between you and OpsCruise, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“OpsCruise”, “we” or “us”). “You” means the company you represent in accepting this Service Agreement or, if that does not apply, then you individually. If You are accepting on behalf of your employer or another company, then You represent that You: (i) have full authority to bind your employer or company to this Service Agreement; and (ii) agree to this Service Agreement on behalf of your employer or company. The exception to this is if your employer or company has a separate written agreement with OpsCruise covering the use of the Services, in which case that agreement governs. If You do not have the legal authority to bind your employer or company (or do not agree with this Service Agreement), then do not click the “confirm” button (or similar “I agree” checkbox) and do not use the Services.
To be eligible to register for an OpsCruise account, You must review and accept this Service Agreement. You may accept this Service Agreement by: (1) clicking a box indicating acceptance (such as a “I accept” or “confirm” button); (2) executing an order form that references this Service Agreement (each an “Order Form”); or (3) using free services such as a trial or limited-use free account.
This Service Agreement, any addendum (such as a Data Processing Addendum), and Order Forms (if between OpsCruise and You) constitute the entire agreement between OpsCruise and You (collectively, the “Agreement”).
You may not, without OpsCruise’s prior written consent, access or use the Services: (a) if You are a direct competitor; (b) to monitor the availability, performance or functionality of the Services; or (c) for any other benchmarking or competitive purposes. Further, OpsCruise does not offer free accounts in some countries, a list which is updated periodically. This may cause your registration request to be denied.
This Services Agreement is effective between You and OpsCruise as of the date of You accepting this Service Agreement.
1.1 Provision of the Services. OpsCruise will make available to You the selected Internet based services (“Services”) as specified on the applicable Order Form(s) or other contract. Certain Services may be subject to additional terms specific to such Services, provided either through the Order Form or as otherwise made available at https://www.OpsCruise.com (or its successor site).
1.2 Service Level Availability. OpsCruise will use commercially reasonable efforts to make the Service available in line with industry standards.
1.3 Support. OpsCruise will provide support to You in accordance with the Support Addendum outlined in ‘Exhibit A’. However, in the case of free services, support will be delivered on a best effort basis.
1.4 Software. Certain Services or features of the Services may require You to install software applications (“Software”) to access such Services or features. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, You are granted a limited, non-exclusive, non transferable, revocable right to use the Software solely for its internal purposes during the Subscription Term.
1.5 Open Source Software. To the extent OpsCruise separately makes available other open source software (“OSS”) for download (e.g. community tools), such code is governed by the terms of the applicable OSS license. To the extent required, the license for any OSS included in the Software, identified in the Documentation, will apply to the OSS instead of this Agreement.
1.6 Intellectual Property. OpsCruise Technology is made available on a limited access basis, and no ownership right is conveyed to You, irrespective of the use of terms such as “purchase” or “sale”. OpsCruise (and its licensors, where applicable) retains all intellectual property rights relating to the Services or the Software (collectively Services and Software shall be referred to as “OpsCruise Technology”). You will not copy, distribute, reproduce or use any of the foregoing except as expressly permitted under the Agreement.
1.7 Feedback. You may from time to time provide suggestions, comments or other feedback to OpsCruise with respect to OpsCruise Technology (“Feedback”). You will not share any of your Confidential Information with OpsCruise when You provide Feedback. You grant to OpsCruise a nonexclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, transferable, sublicensable, royalty-free, fully paid up license to use and exploit the Feedback for any purpose.
1.8 Professional Services. From time to time, Customer may choose to engage OpsCruise for training, enablement, or other technical services in respect of the Service (“Professional Services”). Any purchased Professional Services are as described in the relevant Order. For clarity, the purchase of Professional Services is not required in order for Customer to use and access the Service and Customer agrees that Technical Services do not form part of the Service.
1.9 Third-Party Applications. OpsCruise may make available third-party applications with pre-defined queries and visualizations/dashboards (each an “Application”). Use of such Application is elective, and You grant OpsCruise the right to share usage information with the third-party Application developer for purposes of improvements and troubleshooting.
1.10 Suspension. In addition to the suspension of Services for non-payment as described in Section 4.2 (Suspension for Failure to Pay), we may also suspend Services immediately upon notice for cause if: (a) You violate (or give us reason to believe You have violated) our Acceptable Use Policy; (b) You breach the Agreement; (c) there is reason to believe that the traffic created from your use of the Services is fraudulent; (d) for scheduled or emergency maintenance; or (e) we determine, in our sole discretion, that providing the Services is prohibited by applicable law, or how become impractical or unfeasible for any legal or regulatory reason to the provide the Services.
2.1 Acceptable Use Policy. Any entity that directly (or through an affiliate) offers services that compete with the Service will not directly (or indirectly) use or otherwise access the OpsCruise Technology, unless OpsCruise provides prior written consent to do so pursuant to a separate document that is signed by an officer of OpsCruise. You will promptly notify OpsCruise in writing of any unauthorized use of the OpsCruise Technology, in each case that comes to Your attention, and promptly take all reasonable steps necessary to terminate such unauthorized use, including collaborating with OpsCruise to remediate.
2.2 Credentials. You will cooperate with OpsCruise in connection with the performance of this Agreement by making available such personnel and information as may be reasonably required and taking such other actions as OpsCruise may reasonably request. You will establish a username and password (or any other means required by OpsCruise) (collectively “Account Credentials”) for verifying that only designated employees of You have access to any administrative functions of the Services. You are responsible for all activities (including the use of the Services) performed with the account Credentials and will maintain the security of the Account Credentials.
2.3 Customer Contact. You will designate an individual who will have the responsibility to, and the authority of You, to make decisions concerning all matters relating to this Agreement (“Primary Contact”). You may change the individual designated as Primary Contact at any time by updating the information in the administration console for the Services.
2.4 Email Selected for Account. You choose which email address to use when registering for the Services. If the domain associated with the registration is owned (or otherwise controlled) by your employer (or another company), and that employer (or other company) enters into a contract with OpsCruise for the Services, and they want to add your account to their contract, then You may be rolled into that account.
2.5 Security. During the Term of this Agreement, OpsCruise will implement and maintain administrative, physical and technical safeguards and measures designed to protect against unauthorized access to Customer Data.
2.6 Administrators. Through the Services, You may specify certain users as administrators, who have important rights and controls over your use of the Services (each an “Administrator”). This may include entering into Order Forms; creating, de-provisioning, modifying, or monitoring user roles; setting permission levels; configuring the Services; setting retention or deletion policies as applicable; and overall managing access to your OpsCruise account.
2.7 Customer Controls. The Services provide a number of controls that You may use as technical and organizational measures to assist in connection with your obligations. These controls are at both the Administrator and user level. Users also participate in this shared responsibility model by determining which types of data they need to send over to the Services and what types of queries to run, including whether the proposed use cases meet their applicable compliance needs. For clarity, You are responsible for the actions of its Administrator(s) and users.
2.8 Free Accounts. If subscribing to a free account or free forever plan, you will limit deployment to 5 hosts/nodes, your data retention in the OpsCruise cloud will be limited to 8 days and support will be best efforts. Within 30 days of subscribing, if satisfied with our service, you’ll also agree to do a review on G2.com.
3.1 Definition of Confidential Information. Each party (the “Recipient”) understands that the other party (the “Discloser”) has disclosed or may disclose information relating to the Discloser’s technology or business (“Confidential Information”).
3.2 Protection of Confidential Information. The Recipient will use the same degree of care that it uses to protect the confidentiality of its own confidential information of like kind (but not less than reasonable care) to: (a) not use any Confidential Information of the Discloser for any purpose outside the scope of this Agreement; and (b) limit access to Confidential Information of the Discloser to those of its and its affiliates’ employees and contractors who need that access for purposes consistent with this Agreement and who have signed confidentiality agreements with the Recipient containing protections not materially less protective of the Confidential Information than those herein. The foregoing will not apply to any information that the Recipient can document: (i) is or becomes generally available to the public without any action by, or involvement of, the Recipient; (ii) was in its possession or known by it prior to receipt from the Discloser; (iii) was rightfully disclosed to it without restriction by a third party; or (iv) was independently developed without use of any Confidential Information of the Discloser.
3.3 Compelled Disclosures. Nothing in this Agreement will prevent the Recipient from disclosing the Confidential Information pursuant to any judicial or governmental order, provided that (to the extent permitted by applicable law) the Recipient gives the Discloser reasonable prior notice of such disclosure to contest such order and limits the amount disclosed to only what is legally required.
3.4 Data. “Customer Data” means the electronic data or information submitted by You to the Services. Except for such Customer Data, OpsCruise does not wish to receive any Confidential Information from You that is not necessary for OpsCruise to perform its obligations under this Agreement, and, unless You and OpsCruise specifically agree otherwise, OpsCruise may reasonably presume that any unrelated information received from You is not confidential or Confidential Information. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, OpsCruise may: (a) collect and process technical and related information about your use of the OpsCruise Technology, which may include (without limitation) page views, session duration, number of unique user logins, ingest volume, search congruency, machine-generated data, and other similar data; and (b) create certain aggregated, de-identified information related to the Services, including information about the OpsCruise Technology environment, performance, configuration, and other usage information. You authorize OpsCruise to use such data to support and troubleshoot, provide personalized messages and updates, invoice, analyze trends and benchmark, and administer (as well as test and improve) the OpsCruise Technology.
3.5 Permitted Disclosures. Both parties will have the right to disclose the existence, but not any negotiated terms and conditions of the Agreement, unless such disclosure is approved in writing by both parties prior to such disclosure, or is included in a filing required to be made by a party with a governmental authority (provided such party will use reasonable efforts to obtain confidential treatment or a protective order) or is made on a confidential basis as reasonably necessary to a party’s attorneys, accountants, auditors, financial advisers, creditors, insurers, as well as acquirers, investors, financiers and bona fide potential acquirers, investors and financiers of such party, who are subject to an obligation of confidentiality.
3.6 Deletion of Confidential Information. Upon termination of the Agreement, the Recipient will delete Discloser’s Confidential Information, but may retain such information pursuant to its policies for: (a) accounting, tax, billing, audit, and compliance purposes; (b) investigating fraud or unlawful use of the Services; or (c) as required by applicable law, provided such retention, use, and disclosure for the foregoing purposes is subject to the confidentiality obligations under this Section 3 (Confidentiality).
3.7 Totality of Confidentiality. For clarity, to the extent the parties have entered into (or enter into) a separate non-disclosure agreement regarding the access to (or use of) the Services, You agree that the terms of this Service Agreement supersede and control.
4.1 Payment of Fees. Unless otherwise specified in the applicable Order Form, You will pay OpsCruise the applicable fees as set forth on the Order Form (the “Fees”) in U.S. Dollars, within thirty (30) days of the invoice date. If your use of the Services exceeds the service limitations described in the applicable Order Form (“Service Limitations”), You will be invoiced at the end of each calendar quarter for the excess usage over the Service Limitations, at the same rate set forth on the Order Form. You will pay Fees without any right of set-off, deduction, or withholding. All payments will be made in accordance with the payment schedule and the payment method specified in the applicable Order Form. OpsCruise reserves the right to modify its fees, cancel, and/or modify the Services at the expiration, termination or renewal of this Agreement or any Subscription Term.
4.2 Suspension for Failure to Pay. In the event your account becomes overdue is not brought current within ten (10) business days following written notice (email acceptable) from OpsCruise that such account is past due, then OpsCruise may (without limiting its other rights and remedies) accelerate your unpaid Fee obligation under this Agreement, so that all obligations become immediately due and payable – and suspend Services until such amounts are paid in full. Suspension shall not relieve your obligations to pay amounts due. Any amount due under this Agreement that remains unpaid after its due date will bear interest from the date that such payment became delinquent until the date such amount is paid in full at the lower of 1.5% per month or the maximum rate permitted by law. You will pay OpsCruise all costs and expenses of collection (including attorneys' fees) incurred by OpsCruise in collecting any amounts past due under this Agreement.
4.3 Taxes. The fees do not include any sales or other applicable taxes, levies, duties, or similar assessments assessable by any jurisdiction. Each party is responsible for their own tax obligations. If OpsCruise has the legal obligation to pay or collect taxes for which Customer is responsible under this Section 4.1 (Taxes), the appropriate amount will be invoiced to and paid by Customer, unless OpsCruise is provided with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority.
4.4 Non-Refundable and Non-Cancellable. Except as specifically set forth in this Agreement, all payment obligations under all Order Forms are non-cancellable and all payments are non-refundable.
4.5 Invoicing. You will provide OpsCruise with valid and updated credit card information. If You provide credit card information, then You authorize OpsCruise to charge such credit card for all Services listed in the Order Form for the initial Subscription Term and any renewal Subscription Term(s). Such charges will be made in advance, either annually or in accordance with any different billing frequency stated in the applicable Order Form. If the Order Form specifies that payment will be by a method other than a credit card, then OpsCruise will invoice You in advance and otherwise in accordance with the relevant Order Form. You will provide OpsCruise with a valid purchase order to the extent that You require a purchase order for invoicing. You are responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information, and notifying OpsCruise of any changes to such information.
4.6 Purchase Orders. No purchase orders sent by You will be deemed to modify or otherwise supplement this Agreement. For clarity, a purchase order sent by You with additional terms will be deemed null and void (even if the purchase order is acknowledged with a signature or otherwise referenced for purposes of processing invoices).
4.7 Resellers. If You obtain the Services from a reseller authorized by OpsCruise (“Reseller”) through an Order Form executed with Reseller, then any fees, including refunds and credits, will solely be by and between Reseller and You. Reseller is not authorized to make any changes to this Agreement or bind OpsCruise to any additional or different terms or conditions. For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in this Section 4.7 (Resellers) affects suspension rights or deactivation rights for OpsCruise or a Reseller.
5.1 Term. Each Order Form (or trial, or other applicable contract) will define the specific duration of access to the Services (each a “Subscription Term”). The term of this Agreement commences on the date You first accept it and continues until all Subscription Terms have expired or have been terminated (the “Term”).
5.2 Mid-Term Elections. To the extent additional Services are obtained during the middle of an existing Subscription Term, then the additional orders will be coterminous with that Subscription Term at our then-current rates and prorated for the remaining period of that Subscription Term.
5.3 Renewal. Except as otherwise specified in your Order Form, the Subscription Term for an annual plan will be for one year and will automatically renew each year on the anniversary, unless: (i) You cancel at least thirty (30) days prior to your renewal date; or (ii) we cancel your subscription prior to the expiration of the then-current Subscription Term. You will be billed annually on or about the same day each year until such time that You cancel. Cancelling your subscription means that You will not be charged for the next billing cycle, but You will not receive any refunds or credits for amounts that have already been charged. You will not be permitted to cancel or downgrade the Services that You have selected until the anniversary date. All renewals are subject to the applicable Services continuing to be offered and will be charged at the then-current rates.
5.4 Termination for Cause. In the event of any material breach of this Agreement, the non-breaching party may terminate this Agreement by giving thirty (30) days prior written notice to the breaching party; provided, however, that this Agreement will not terminate if the breaching party has cured the breach prior to the expiration of such thirty-day period. Either party may terminate this Agreement, without notice, (a) upon the institution by or against the other party of insolvency, receivership or bankruptcy proceedings, (b) upon the other party's making an assignment for the benefit of creditors, or (c) upon the other party's dissolution or ceasing to do business. In the event the Agreement is terminated, all Order Forms are simultaneously terminated. If OpsCruise terminates in accordance with this Section 5.4 (Termination for Cause), then any unpaid fees covering the remainder of the then-current Subscription Term will become immediately due.
5.5 Effect of Termination. The following Sections survive any expiration or termination of this Agreement: 1.6 (Intellectual Property), 1.7 (Feedback), 2.1 (Acceptable Use Policy), 3 (Confidentiality), 4 (Payment of Fees), 5.5 (Effect of Termination), 6 (Warranties), 7 (Warranty Disclaimer), 8 (Liability), 9 (Indemnification), and 11 (General Provisions).
5.6 Refund or Payment upon Termination. If this Agreement is terminated by You in accordance with Section 5.4 (Termination for Cause), then OpsCruise will refund You any prepaid Fees covering the remainder of the Subscription Term after the effective date of the termination. If this Agreement is terminated by OpsCruise in accordance with Section 5.4 (Termination for Cause), then You will pay any unpaid Fees covering the remainder of the Subscription Term. In no event will termination relieve You of its obligation to pay any Fees payable to OpsCruise for the period prior to the effective date of termination.
5.7 With 30 days notice, OpsCruise reserves the right to modify it’s free and unpaid use of the product at any time, including discontinuing service to customers on any trial, free or unpaid plan.
