SKYPOINT CLOUD TERMS OF SERVICE
These Terms of Service (the “Terms of Service”) are between “Customer”, “you”, or “your” and the entity set forth in the Order Form “SkyPoint Cloud”, “we”, or “us”. These Terms of Service and any Order Forms and Statements of Work that references them, and any other documents incorporated by reference in them shall be collectively referred to as the “Agreement.” The Agreement constitutes a legal agreement that governs your access to and use of our Service.
1.1 Provision of the Service.
SkyPoint Cloud shall make the Service available to Customer during the Subscription Term solely for Customer’s own internal business purposes as permitted by and subject to this Agreement.
Customer may permit its employees and contractors (collectively, “Users”) to use the Service solely on Customer’s behalf, provided that Customer shall ensure that all such Users comply with the terms of this Agreement. If Customer becomes aware of any breach of Customer’s obligations under the Agreement caused by a User, Customer will immediately suspend access to the Service and Collected Data by such Customer User. Customer will be fully liable for the acts, omissions, or violation of this Agreement by any and all Users as though they were Customer’s own.
Except for the express usage rights granted in this Section 1.1, no other usage rights or licenses are granted by SkyPoint Cloud hereunder, by implication, estoppel or otherwise, and all rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.
Customer understands that the Service may change over time as SkyPoint Cloud refines and adds more features. SkyPoint Cloud reserves the right to update and modify the Service at any time, with or without notice, in its sole discretion.
1.2 Customer’s Account.
For each User, Customer must provide SkyPoint Cloud with Customer’s and the User’s full legal name, the User’s valid email address, and any other information requested during the account signup process (collectively, “User Account Information”) in order to obtain a SkyPoint Cloud account (“Login Account”) for such User. Customer will ensure that all User Account Information and other account information of all Users remains complete and accurate. Accounts registered by “bots” or other automated methods are not permitted. Customer is solely responsible for protecting each Login Account, including a User’s username and password, and Customer will be liable for any unauthorized use thereof.
1.3 Third Party Services.
Customer may use certain third-party products or services in connection with the Service (“Third-Party Services”). SkyPoint Cloud makes no representations or warranties with respect to any Third-Party Services, whether express or implied, and shall have no liability whatsoever for the Collected Data while it is being transmitted from the Service to the Third-Party Services. Customer is solely responsible for determining the suitability of any Third-Party Services that Customer elects to use in connection with the Service. Any and all use of such Third-Party Services shall be at Customer’s sole risk.
1.4 Proof of Concept.
From time to time SkyPoint Cloud may offer access to the Service (or portions thereof) through a trial period, pilot, or proof of concept (“Proof of Concept”), as SkyPoint Cloud determine in its sole discretion, and as reflected in the Order Form. The obligations on the Customer as set forth in this Agreement applies equally to any Proof of Concept that Customer may be using. Customer understands and acknowledges that the Service provided under any Proof of Concept may be significantly limited in storage and concurrent processing capacity and as such shall not be used in a production or live environment. Any access or use of the Service under a Proof of Concept shall be at Customer’s sole risk and is provided to the Customer on an “as is” basis. SkyPoint Cloud reserves the right to suspend or terminate the Proof of Concept at any time and for any reason.
Technical support is provided in accordance with Customer’s selected plan level and the terms and conditions set forth in the Order Form, as applicable.
1.6 Professional Services.
SkyPoint Cloud may provide implementation, configuration, training, and other similar services related to the Service (collectively “Professional Services”). All Professional Services, including the applicable fees for such services, will be set out in either an Order Form or a statement of work executed by the parties (“Statement of Work”) which will reference and be governed by this Agreement. Any materials produced by or with SkyPoint Cloud in the course of providing any support or Professional Services to Customer (the “Service Materials”), shall remain the exclusive property of SkyPoint Cloud. Service Materials include materials created for or in cooperation with Customer, but do not include any Collected Data, Customer’s Confidential Information or the Service. Customer shall reimburse SkyPoint Cloud for all reasonable, pre-approved (by Customer in writing) and appropriately documented travel and related expenses incurred by SkyPoint Cloud in performing any support or Professional Services for Customer.

2.2 Notification of Unauthorized Use and Security Incidents.
Customer shall immediately notify SkyPoint Cloud at firstname.lastname@example.org of any security breaches, incidents, threats, or vulnerabilities involving the Service that come to Customer’s attention, including without limitation any compromise of User Account Information or unauthorized use of a Customer Login Account or the Service. In the event of any unauthorized use of a Login Account, Customer will take all steps necessary to terminate such unauthorized use. Additionally, Customer will provide SkyPoint Cloud with such cooperation and assistance related to investigation and remediation of any such breach, incident, threat, or vulnerability as SkyPoint Cloud may reasonably request. SkyPoint Cloud is not responsible for unauthorized access to Customer’s Login Account.
3.1 Use of Collected Data.
Customer may use the Tools provided with the Service to generate Reports pertaining to the Collected Data. Customer represents and warrants that:
a. Customer has the right to share with SkyPoint Cloud the User Account Information it provides under Section 1.2;
b. Customer has the right to provide to SkyPoint Cloud the Collected Data and the Personal Information contained therein, upload Collected Data to the Service, and export the Collected Data using services and locations designated by Customer;
c. Customer’s use, transmission, and export of Collected Data is and will be in compliance with this Agreement, and all applicable laws, regulations, and ordinances, including relevant data privacy laws; and
d. Customer has provided all necessary notices and obtained all necessary consents related to the collection, use, and transfer of Collected Data and User Account Information in the manner described in this Agreement. SkyPoint Cloud reserves the right to review and/or remove any Collected Data or User Account Information if SkyPoint Cloud suspects that such Collected Data or User Account Information is in violation of this Agreement and/or applicable laws.
SkyPoint Cloud reserves the right to review and/or remove any Collected Data or User Account Information if SkyPoint Cloud suspects that such Collected Data or User Account Information is in violation of this Agreement and/or applicable laws.
SkyPoint Cloud will only access and use the Collected Data to the extent it is necessary to provide the Service to Customer. Notwithstanding the foregoing, SkyPoint Cloud may retain and use the Collected Data and data related to use of the Service (such as the number of times a portion of the Service has been used) (“Use Data”) for the purpose of supporting, generally maintaining, and improving the Service, provided that for each such use, the Collected Data and Use Data is used in aggregated and/or anonymized form. SkyPoint Cloud may further use the Collected Data and Use Data for developing and distributing general benchmarks or statistics pertaining to the Service, provided the Collected Data and Use Data is used in aggregated and/or anonymized form. For the avoidance of doubt, such aggregated and anonymized data does not contain information that identifies Customer’s customers or any data subject and is not considered Customer Confidential Information.
SkyPoint Cloud shall endeavor to implement reasonable security measures in connection with the Service; however, Customer acknowledges, that no data transmission over the Internet or data storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure and SkyPoint Cloud cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted to or stored by SkyPoint Cloud. Customer acknowledges that if it wishes to protect its transmission of Collected Data, it is Customer’s responsibility to use a secure encrypted connection to communicate with the Service. At Customer’s option, Customer may use Transport Layer Security (TLS)/Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption through the SkyPoint Agent (the software that runs as a background process on a device that collects logs from various data sources and uploads them to the Service) where Collected Data is collected to help protect its transmission using the Internet. SkyPoint Cloud shall not be liable to Customer for any liability arising from the operation of the Service over the Internet or other networks outside of its control.
3.4 European Personal Information.
If Customer stores, transmits, or otherwise processes European Personal Information using the Service, the terms of service may be amended from time to time, shall apply to such processing, and the Data Processing Addendum (Europe) need to be incorporated by reference herein as if fully set forth.
3.5 Japanese Personal Information.
If Customer stores, transmits, or otherwise processes Japanese Personal Information using the Service, the terms of service may be amended from time to time, shall apply to such processing, and the Data Processing Addendum (Japan) need to be incorporated by reference herein as if fully set forth.
3.6 Data Backups and Retention.
Customer understands and agrees that Customer is solely responsible for maintaining appropriate backups and archives of Customer’s Collected Data. SkyPoint Cloud will have no responsibility (or related liability) for backing up any Collected Data or other information that Customer provides to SkyPoint Cloud. Customer acknowledges that SkyPoint Cloud’s obligation to retain Collected Data terminates under Section 10.4 after expiration or termination of this Agreement.
4. Payment Terms
4.1 Invoicing and Payment Terms.
Customer will pay SkyPoint Cloud the fees for the Service (“Service Fees”) in accordance with the Order Form as shown on SkyPoint Cloud’s invoice to Customer based on Customer’s usage of the Service.
Unless otherwise stated in the Order Form, at the beginning of each month of the Subscription Term, SkyPoint Cloud will invoice Customer for the Service Fees corresponding to Customer’s then-current plan tier (as defined in the Order Form), and Customer shall pay such Service Fee. Customer’s Service Fees will be calculated based on Customer’s usage of the Service from the first to the last day of the calendar month.
Customer shall pay all Service Fees in the currency specified in the invoice within thirty (30) days after the billing date on the invoice. Except as expressly provided herein, all payment obligations are non-cancelable and all Service Fees and other amounts paid or payable are non-refundable and shall be made without setoff or counterclaim, and without any deduction or withholding. SkyPoint Cloud may charge Customer interest at the lesser of the rate of 1% per month and the maximum amount permitted by law on all late payments more than 30 days late. Customer will reimburse SkyPoint Cloud for all costs SkyPoint Cloud incurs in connection with its effort to collect any past due amounts, including attorneys’ fees and other related expenses. SkyPoint Cloud may suspend the Service or terminate this Agreement if Customer fails to pay the Service Fees in full and on time.
All sums stated under the Agreement do not include taxes. All applicable taxes shall be payable by Customer in accordance with relevant legislation in force at the relevant tax point, including value added taxes, sales and use taxes or other similar taxes. Customer shall pay all amounts due under the Agreement in full without any deduction or withholding. Without limiting the foregoing, in the event that payment of any sums due to SkyPoint Cloud under the Agreement becomes subject to any deduction or withholding in respect of or on account of tax, Customer shall pay to SkyPoint Cloud such additional sum as may be required in order that the net amount actually received and retained by SkyPoint Cloud under the Agreement (after such deduction or withholding has been made) shall be equal to the full amount that would have been received and retained by SkyPoint Cloud had no such deduction or withholding been required to be made.
5. Proprietary Rights
SkyPoint Cloud and its suppliers and Affiliates, as applicable, retain all right, title and interest, in and to the Service (including all of its software and technology components), the structure and format of any Reports, its trademarks, its Confidential Information, and the Feedback (as defined below), including all intellectual property rights therein. In no event will Customer contest or dispute SkyPoint Cloud’s exclusive ownership rights in the foregoing. Other trademarks, service marks, and trade names that may be used on or in connection with the Service are the property of their respective owners. Customer will retain all right, title and interest, in and to the Collected Data, the content of Reports related to such Collected Data, Customer’s trademarks, and Customer’s Confidential Information, including all intellectual property rights therein, subject to SkyPoint Cloud’s rights in Section 3.1.
5.2 Use of Software Tools.
Certain software Tools that are furnished to Customer in connection with the Service are provided by SkyPoint Cloud. Except as expressly provided herein, the Tools are distributed on an “AS IS” BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. See the relevant license accompanying such Tools for the specific language governing permissions and limitations under such license. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Customer understands that the Service is intended for use with the Tools. To the extent Customer modifies the Tools, Customer does so at its own risk, and Customer agrees to hold SkyPoint Cloud harmless from any damages, losses, and liability that may arise from Customer’s modification of the Tools.
SkyPoint Cloud welcomes Customer’s suggestions or feedback on how to improve the Service or the Tools. If Customer provides any ideas, suggestions or recommendations (whether in oral or written form) to SkyPoint Cloud or its Affiliates regarding the Service (“Feedback”), SkyPoint Cloud may use that information without any obligation to Customer, and Customer hereby irrevocably assigns to SkyPoint Cloud all right, title, and interest in that Feedback. Customer shall do all things including signing all documents or other instruments necessary to confirm or vest in SkyPoint Cloud the rights hereby assigned.

Customer must timely and properly report any issues with the Service to SkyPoint Cloud, via email@example.com, so that SkyPoint Cloud may have the opportunity to research and resolve such issues. For any non-conformance of the above warranty, SkyPoint Cloud will use reasonable efforts to correct any such non-conformance or provide Customer with an alternative means of accomplishing the desired performance. Such correction or substitution constitutes Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy for any breach of this Section 7.2 and shall not apply to the extent that any non-conformance is caused by use of the Service contrary to SkyPoint Cloud’s instructions, or modifications or alterations of the Service by Customer or any third party other than SkyPoint Cloud.

SKYPOINT CLOUD DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICE WILL BE ERROR FREE OR UNINTERRUPTED. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED IN THIS AGREEMENT, THE SERVICE IS PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE.”

a. Subject to this Agreement, SkyPoint Cloud will defend Customer against any suit or proceeding made or brought against Customer by a third party alleging that Customer’s use of the unmodified Service and Reports (as made available by SkyPoint Cloud and used in accordance with this Agreement) infringes such third party’s copyright rights, or misappropriate such third party’s trade secrets, and SkyPoint Cloud will indemnify Customer from any damages, reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs finally awarded against Customer or amounts paid by Customer in any final settlement in connection with any such claim, suit, or proceeding.
b. Customer agrees to defend SkyPoint Cloud and its Affiliates and licensors, and each of their respective employees, officers, directors, and representatives against any suit or proceeding made or brought against SkyPoint Cloud by a third party alleging that the Collected Data, User Account Data, or Customer’s use of the Service infringes the rights of, or has caused harm to, such third party or violates any law and Customer will indemnify SkyPoint Cloud from any fines, damages, reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs finally awarded against SkyPoint Cloud or amounts paid by SkyPoint Cloud in any final settlement in connection with any such suit or proceeding.

d. Should any component of the Service or Reports become, or in SkyPoint Cloud’s opinion be likely to become, the subject of a claim for infringement for which Customer could seek indemnification under Section 9(a), SkyPoint Cloud shall, without any admission of liability, be entitled at its option to: (i) procure for Customer the right to continue to use such component, (ii) replace or modify such component to make such component non-infringing, or (iii) if neither (i) nor (ii) is possible, terminate the right to use such component and/or terminate this Agreement, provided that in the event of a termination of the entire Agreement, the Customer shall not be obligated to pay any further fees and SkyPoint will refund any fees pre-paid for the Services and/or the Reports that are the subject of the claim to the extent such fees are unearned by SkyPoint Cloud as of the effective date of termination,

Without prejudice to any other right or remedy which may be available to it, either party may terminate an Order Form and/or this Agreement immediately upon written notice to the other party, if:

Following such period, SkyPoint Cloud will have no obligation to maintain or provide Collected Data and shall thereafter, unless legally prohibited, automatically delete all Collected Data in its systems or otherwise in its possession or under its control. Customer acknowledges that following such period and deletion of Collected Data, the Collected Data will be unrecoverable.

Such suspension shall be for so long as SkyPoint Cloud believes is necessary to mitigate the risk of harm to the Service or other parties. SkyPoint Cloud will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify Customer in advance of such suspension and will provide notice promptly after any suspension. Suspension of use of the Service shall not release Customer from its obligations under this Agreement.
