3.      Non-Production Instances

 

ServiceNow may provide you with temporary access to a non-production instance of the ServiceNow Products upon your request to the Website (each a "Non-Production Instance"). Unless subject to a separate click-accept agreement at the time of registration, access to and use of any and all Non-Production Instances shall be governed by these Terms of Use, including without limitation the intellectual property and limitation of liability sections herein. If a click-accept agreement is made available to you at the time of registration for access to ServiceNow services or products, then in the event of any conflict between that agreement and these Terms of Use, that agreement shall supersede these Terms of Use to the extent of the conflict.

 

Subject to compliance with these Terms of Use, ServiceNow authorizes you to access and use the Non-Production Instance solely for your own internal use to evaluate the ServiceNow Products. ServiceNow may update, upgrade, add or remove plugins and functionality, and otherwise modify the Non-Production Instance in its sole discretion without notice to you. Access to ServiceNow technical support resources is not provided with a Non-Production Instance.

 

You may not use the Non-Production Instance with production data or to provide services to others, including services of implementation, customization or configuration of the Subscription Service.  You may not transfer, sublicense, distribute or otherwise provide third parties access to any applications, integrations or other material that you develop using the Non-Production Instance.  If you need to access the Subscription Service on a production basis or to provide services or develop Apps for others, please contact ServiceNow to discuss commercial offerings.

 

THE NON-PRODUCTION INSTANCE AND OTHER SERVICENOW CORE TECHNOLOGY (AS DEFINED BELOW) ARE PROVIDED TO YOU UNDER THIS AGREEMENT AT YOUR OWN RISK AND "AS-IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. You shall input only non-sensitive, non-production data into the Non-Production Instance. ServiceNow shall have no obligation or liability for or with respect to an Non-Production Instance, including without limitation: warranty, support, reliability, backup, performance or service level, refund, service credits, loss of use or loss of data.

 

You shall treat your login credentials to, and the contents of (with the exception of data inserted by you), the Non-Production Instance as confidential information and shall not disclose it to any third party. You agree to provide any required disclosures to and obtain any required consents for the transfer of your data to ServiceNow in connection with your use of the Non-Production Instance. ServiceNow shall not be responsible for compliance with any laws applicable to you and your industry that are not generally applicable to information technology service providers. You agree that ServiceNow may collect, use and disclose quantitative data derived from the use of the Non-Production Instance for industry analysis, benchmarking, analytics, marketing, and other business purposes.  All data collected, used, and disclosed regarding your use of a Non-Production Instance will be in aggregate form only and will not identify you.

 

4.      Store and Share

 

The ServiceNow Store available at http://store.servicenow.com, the ServiceNow Publisher Portal available at http://tpp.servicenow.com, and their related and successor websites (collectively, "Store"), and the ServiceNow Share site available at http://share.servicenow.com and its related and successor websites ("Share"), permit registered users, ServiceNow partners and ServiceNow to review and access Apps developed by the user and partner community. As used herein, "App" shall mean a Contribution, posted by a user, a ServiceNow Technology Partner or ServiceNow, that is an application, integration, configuration, extension, update set or other material developed using, or for use in connection with, the ServiceNow Products or other ServiceNow Core Technology.  Apps may be downloaded for use on the recipient’s instance or hosted by ServiceNow, and may include artifacts such as code and documentation.

 

You may not post Apps to the Store site unless you have entered into ServiceNow’s Technology Partner Program pursuant to a separate written agreement.  Such separate agreement shall control over these Terms of Use with respect to your use of the Store to the extent that these Terms of Use are in conflict with the separate agreement.

 

Several types of Apps may be posted to Store and Share:

 

"Shared App" means any App provided free of charge on the Share site. Shared Apps may be downloaded or hosted by ServiceNow in connection with the recipient’s ServiceNow Products. You may not offer paid Apps for subscription or sale on the Share site.

 

"Conditional Shared App" means any Shared App for which a user must agree to additional or different terms and conditions ("App Conditions") as a condition to download or access the App.

 

"Store App" means an App posted to the Store site that is available for a fee or free of charge, and subject to App Conditions.

 

A "ServiceNow App" shall mean an App posted by any employee, agent or contractor acting on behalf of ServiceNow, and may be a ServiceNow Shared App, ServiceNow Conditional Shared App or ServiceNow Store App.

 

All Shared Apps and Conditional Shared Apps posted to Share, and Store Apps posted to Store, are subject to the terms of Section 5 (Posting Apps).

 

Purchases of Store Apps

Payments and Subscription Term. On the Store site, you may place a non-cancellable and non-refundable (except as expressly set forth herein) order to purchase access to a Store App by clicking the "purchase" button associated with that App on Store. Prices stated on Store, including discounts, are final. Except as expressly set forth in the description of a particular Store App, fees for Store Apps are invoiced at the time you place your order. Each Store App is purchased for a term of twelve (12) months, provided that you have a valid paid subscription to the ServiceNow Product(s) required to use the Store App throughout that period.  In the event that your subscription to any ServiceNow Product required to use the Store App expires, you may not use the Store App until such use rights are reinstated. Your payment obligation provided in this section shall survive expiration or termination of your rights to use any ServiceNow Product required to use the Store App. Purchase of a Store App is a continuous and non-divisible commitment for the full duration of its subscription term regardless of the invoice schedule. You may cancel your subscription upon expiration of any Store App subscription term. ServiceNow will provide advance notice of each renewal date to the contact information provided by you. Unless you cancel your subscription, Store Apps will automatically renew upon the expiration of each subscription term.

 

Payments by Credit Card. For purchases by credit card, payment and invoice shall be due upon purchase of the Store App. The credit card you provide for billing purposes will be billed on a monthly basis during the subscription term of the Store App and on any subsequent automatic renewal subscription terms.

 

Purchases by Invoice. For purchases by invoice, all payments shall be due net thirty (30) days from the date of ServiceNow’s invoice, and payments shall be invoiced and made in the currency provided in the invoice. You may issue a purchase order consistent with these Terms of Use, but a purchase order is not required. If you issue a purchase order, then it shall be for the full amount of the purchase as provided on Store, and any additional or conflicting terms appearing in a purchase order shall not amend this Agreement.

 

Late Payments. Late payments shall accrue interest at a rate of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or the legal maximum interest rate, whichever is lower. If you are delinquent in payment of amounts owed hereunder, ServiceNow may give notice to you of such delinquency, following which you shall cure the delinquency within thirty (30) days from the date of ServiceNow’s written notice. If you fail to cure the delinquency or regain compliance in accordance with the paragraph below, ServiceNow may suspend your access to the Store App in addition to other rights and remedies available.

 

Overuse. ServiceNow may remotely review your use of the Store App for comparison with your rights of use, and upon ServiceNow’s written request you shall provide any reasonable assistance to verify your compliance with these Terms of Use. If ServiceNow determines that you have exceeded your permitted use of the Store App then ServiceNow will notify you and within thirty (30) days thereafter you shall either: (a) disable any unpermitted use or (b) purchase additional subscriptions commensurate with your actual use.

 

Taxes. All prices on Store are stated exclusive of all taxes, duties, levies, imposts, fines or similar governmental assessments including sales and use taxes, value-added taxes ("VAT"), goods and services taxes ("GST"), excise, business, service, and similar transactional taxes imposed by any jurisdiction and the interest and penalties thereon (collectively, "Taxes"). You shall be responsible for and bear Taxes associated with your purchase of, payment for, access to or use of any Store App accessible to you. Taxes shall not be deducted from the payments to us, except as required by law, in which case you shall increase the amount payable as necessary so that after making all required deductions and withholdings, we receive and retain (free from any Tax liability) an amount equal to the amount it would have received had no such deductions or withholdings been made. Each party is responsible for and shall bear taxes imposed on its net income. If you are or represent a tax-exempt entity or claim exemption from any Taxes under these Terms of Use, you shall provide a tax exemption number and a certificate to us prior to your purchase and, after receipt of valid evidence of exemption, ServiceNow shall not charge you any Taxes from which you are exempt. If we are required to invoice or collect Taxes associated with your purchase of, payment for, access to or use of the Store App, we will issue an invoice to you including the amount of those Taxes, itemized where required by law. You shall provide to us your VAT or GST identification number(s) for (i) the country where you have established your business and/or (ii) any other country where you have a fixed establishment. You shall use the ordered Store App for your business use in the foregoing location(s) in accordance with the provided VAT or GST identification number(s). The parties’ obligations under this Section shall survive the termination or expiration of these Terms of Use.

 

App Rights and Restrictions

The following terms shall apply to your use of Apps from Store and Share, in addition to other limitations and disclaimers provided herein:

 

Minimum Requirements. You must procure separate permission from us to use the ServiceNow Products, including: (a) any specific ServiceNow Product that may be required to run an App, including, without limitation, any ServiceNow Product required to use custom applications that run on the ServiceNow Platform; and (b) any ServiceNow Product with which the App is intended to be used. If you have no Subscription Agreement with us, then you may not use Apps.

 

Rights to Apps subject to App Conditions. The user posting an App subject to App Conditions, and not ServiceNow, has sole responsibility for the terms and obligations of the App Conditions. Your access, use or download of a Conditional Shared App or Store App is subject to the App Conditions presented to you prior to your access, provided that to the extent that the App Conditions conflict with these Terms of Use, these Terms of Use shall control to the extent of such conflict. Notwithstanding any contrary term or condition in any App Conditions, you may not transfer, sublicense, distribute or otherwise provide third parties access to any App that you acquire through Store or Share. ServiceNow has no responsibility for the contents of any App Conditions.

 

Rights to ServiceNow Apps. You shall have, with respect to any purchased ServiceNow Store App, the rights and obligations applicable to "Subscription Service" under your current Subscription Agreement, subject to the disclaimers set forth in these Terms of Service. You shall have, with respect to any downloaded ServiceNow Shared App, a non-exclusive, non-transferable, perpetual right to copy, use, and make derivative works of the ServiceNow Shared App solely to evaluate, customize, configure or use the ServiceNow Shared App in conjunction with ServiceNow Products that you are otherwise permitted to use under a separate Subscription Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that a ServiceNow Store App or ServiceNow Shared App is subject to App Conditions, such App Conditions shall apply to your use of the App. In the event of any conflict between App Conditions applicable to a ServiceNow App and these Terms of Use, the App Conditions shall govern to the extent of such conflict with respect to your use of the corresponding ServiceNow App.

 

Restrictions on Use of Store and Share Contributions. Notwithstanding any contrary term or condition in any App Conditions, you may not: (a) transfer, sublicense, distribute or otherwise provide a third-party access an App; (b) use an App to develop a product that is operable apart from the ServiceNow platform; (c) use APIs other than the ServiceNow APIs provided on the ServiceNow website to communicate with the ServiceNow Products, or circumvent such APIs or otherwise use APIs that diminish ServiceNow’s ability to isolate errors when providing customer support; or (d) use an App other than in connection with a ServiceNow Product that you are permitted to use under a separate Subscription Agreement.

 

Certification. Certain Apps may be advertised as Certified, meaning that the App successfully passed a number of compatibility tests designated by us. The identification of an App as Certified shall not be construed as making any representation, warranty, guarantee or promise apart from those set forth in these Terms of Use, nor that a contributor’s provision of, or your use of, an App is permitted by third parties or any applicable laws and regulations.

 

Testing. The user posting an App, and not ServiceNow (with the exception of ServiceNow Apps), is the provider and grantor of access rights and has sole responsibility for the content of the corresponding App. All Apps must be thoroughly tested by the user in a testing environment before use in a production environment. You agree not to rely on any statements, claims, comments or other discussion on or through the Website by any person with respect to Apps. Except as otherwise offered in any App Conditions pertaining to an App, you are solely responsible for independently testing and validating any App before deploying it in a production environment. Accordingly, you shall not assert any claim for breach of warranty or contract or misrepresentation against any third-party user based on the performance of an App.

 

Disclaimer of Support, Indemnification and Security. Your use of an App, or incorporation of an App (even a ServiceNow App) into any ServiceNow Product constitutes a modification or customization of that ServiceNow Product by you for purposes of any Subscription Agreement or other agreement between you and ServiceNow relating to the ServiceNow Product, and such customization or modification (or malfunction or loss of function caused thereby) shall not be subject to any warranty under a Subscription Agreement. You are not entitled to support, service credits, refunds, service level agreement or other service entitlements under any Subscription Agreement or other agreement of any kind with respect to your use of any App except as expressly granted by us in any App Conditions. Indemnification or security obligations imposed on us in a Subscription Agreement shall not apply to Apps that you implement or use in connection with a ServiceNow Product.

 

Except as otherwise provided in any App Conditions, the App contributor does not provide support, whether that contributor is us or a third-party user of the Website. To create an environment in which users are encouraged to contribute materials for discussion and testing by other users, refrain from making demands for support to the originator of the content.

 

Disclaimer of Contributor Liability. You must review and thoroughly test in a non-production environment any App prior to its use in any production instance of the ServiceNow Products. You agree that you bear all risks associated with using any App. EXCEPT FOR LIABILITY TO SERVICENOW OR AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED OTHERWISE IN ANY APPLICABLE APP CONDITIONS, IN NO EVENT SHALL ANY CONTRIBUTOR OR SERVICENOW HAVE ANY LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY HEREUNDER TO YOU OR ANY OTHER PERSON FOR ANY LOSSES OR DAMAGES WHATSOEVER ARISING OUT OF AN APP, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, COVER, OR DAMAGES BASED ON LOST PROFITS, DATA, OR USE, HOWEVER CAUSED AND WHETHER IN CONTRACT, IN TORT OR UNDER ANY OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER OR NOT YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SERVICENOW OR THE THIRD-PARTY ORIGINATOR OF THE APP REVIEWED, MODERATED, COMMENTED ON OR PROMOTED SUCH APP.

 

No Warranty to User. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED OTHERWISE IN ANY APPLICABLE APP CONDITIONS, APPS ARE PROVIDED TO YOU "AS-IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE," WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. WITHOUT LIMITING THE GENERALITY OF THE FOREGOING, EACH USER OF THE WEBSITE MAKES NO REPRESENTATION, WARRANTY OR GUARANTY, EXPRESS, STATUTORY OR IMPLIED TO YOU OR ANY OTHER PERSONS TO THE RELIABILITY, USEFULNESS, COMPLETENESS, TIMELINESS, QUALITY, SUITABILITY, AVAILABILITY OR ACCURACY OF THE APP. NO USER WARRANTS THAT ALL OR ANY PORTION OF THE APP IS ERROR FREE OR WILL OPERATE WITHOUT INTERRUPTION. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, AND TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, EACH USER SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ALL STATUTORY OR OTHER W ARRANTIES INCLUDING IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, TITLE OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARISING FROM USAGE OF TRADE, COURSE OF DEALING OR COURSE OF PERFORMANCE.

 

ADDITIONAL DISCLAIMERS OF WARRANTY AND LIABILITY BY SERVICENOW ARE PROVIDED BELOW IN THESE TERMS OF USE WITH RESPECT TO APPS.

 

5.      Posting Apps

 

The terms of this Section 5 apply to any App that you post to the Website, including Store and Share, or otherwise make available to a third party.

 

Grant of rights to Shared Apps. By posting a Shared App in the form of an update set, you hereby grant to each user of Share a non-exclusive, non-transferable, perpetual license (to the extent of your rights in the Shared App) to copy, use, and make derivative works of the Shared App solely to evaluate, customize, configure or use the App in conjunction with ServiceNow Products that such user is otherwise permitted to use under a separate Subscription Agreement.

 

Negative Impacts and Removal. ServiceNow reserves the right to remove any posted App or terminate access to an App (including a Store App) that, in ServiceNow’s sole discretion: (a) deteriorates ServiceNow’s ability to meet its service level agreement; (b) is relevant to an obsolete version, in ServiceNow’s discretion; (c) interferes with ServiceNow’s ability to provide its commercially available products and services in accordance with ServiceNow’s standard support and service availability terms without a promptly accessible cure deemed acceptable by ServiceNow; (d) is subject to the contributor’s request for removal; (e) was contributed by a user that is not in compliance with these Terms of Use or other agreement; or (f) violates these Terms of Use.

 

Separate Agreement Required. You may not grant or purport to grant (and nothing in these Terms of Use shall be construed as granting or authorizing you to grant) any license or other right under or to any copyright or other intellectual property right of ServiceNow or any other party whose software, data, proprietary information, patentable invention or other subject matter is included in or required to use your App (regardless of whether ServiceNow or such other person licensed, permitted, encouraged or otherwise authorized you to include or use such subject matter). You shall not assert any patent right against ServiceNow or any third-party user based on an alleged infringement that is caused in whole or part by their authorized use of any App that you created or posted to the Store.

 

Third-Party Materials. You represent and warrant that you own or otherwise rightfully possess all intellectual property and other rights necessary to allow you to grant access to or license (as applicable) to any App that you post to the Store.

 

Service Interference. If your App interferes with our ability to provide our commercially available products and services to our customers in accordance with the support and service availability terms in the Subscription Service Guide posted at www.servicenow.com/schedules.do without a promptly accessible cure deemed acceptable by us, we may immediately discontinue your ability to make the App available to ServiceNow Customers in our sole discretion.

 

Compatibility. Any App that you create must be compatible with applicable ServiceNow Products and must not: (a) permit a user to pose as another user or multiple users to act as a single user; (b) include, send, store, or run software viruses, worms, Trojan horses, or other harmful computer code, files, scripts, agents, or programs; (c) access, copy, destroy or transmit data regarding any user or device in excess of what is described in the accompanying documentation; (d) create a denial of service; (e) violate any law or regulation of the United States, any state thereof, or other government authority; or (f) disable, exploit, hack, or otherwise interfere with any security, encryption, digital signing, digital rights management, verification, or authentication mechanisms implemented in or by the ServiceNow Products.

9.      Legal Considerations

 

Confidentiality

You agree that the configuration and information contained in a Non-Production Instance, Apps and any information provided to you in connection with a ServiceNow event will be considered and referred to as "ServiceNow Confidential Information"). Notwithstanding the foregoing, ServiceNow Confidential Information shall not include: (a) information that is generally and legitimately available to the public through no fault or breach of yours; (b) information that is generally made available to the public by us; (c) information that is independently developed by you without the use of any ServiceNow Confidential Information; (d) information that was rightfully obtained from a third party who had the right to transfer or disclose it to you without limitation; or (e) any third-party software and/or documentation provided to you by us and accompanied by licensing terms that do not impose confidentiality obligations on the use or disclosure of such software and/or documentation.

 

Unless otherwise expressly agreed or permitted in writing by ServiceNow, you agree not to disclose, publish, or disseminate any ServiceNow Confidential Information to anyone. You agree not to use ServiceNow Confidential Information in any way, including, without limitation, for your own or any third party’s benefit without the prior written approval of an authorized representative of ServiceNow in each instance. You further agree to take reasonable precautions to prevent any unauthorized use, disclosure, publication, or dissemination of ServiceNow Confidential Information. You acknowledge that unauthorized disclosure or use of ServiceNow Confidential Information could cause irreparable harm and significant injury to ServiceNow that may be difficult to ascertain. Accordingly, you agree that we will have the right to seek immediate injunctive relief to enforce your obligations under this Agreement in addition to any other rights and remedies we may have. If you are required by law, regulation or pursuant to the valid binding order of a court of competent jurisdiction to disclose ServiceNow Confidential Information, you may make such disclosure, but only if you have notified us before making such disclosure and have used commercially reasonable efforts to limit the disclosure and to seek confidential, protective treatment of such information. A disclosure pursuant to the previous sentence will not relieve you of your obligations to hold such information as ServiceNow Confidential Information.

 

Paid Content

Certain parts of the Website may grant you access to certain proprietary content (including, without limitation, training modules, video presentations and audio recordings) that we may make available to you from time to time for a separate fee ("Paid Content"). Paid Content shall be considered ServiceNow Confidential Information, unless otherwise agreed or permitted in writing by ServiceNow. You may not share the Paid Content with anyone, including, without limitation, employees and contractors working for the same entity as you. Subject to these terms and conditions, we grant you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, personal license to access and use the Paid Content upon your purchase, provided that you may only download one (1) copy of the Paid Content and such download must be completed within the time period specified by us for such download. Except as expressly permitted by us, you shall not modify, translate, reproduce, distribute, or create derivative works of the Paid Content or any part thereof. You shall not sell, sublicense, rent, lease, loan, assign or otherwise transfer any rights in the Paid Content. We and/or our licensor(s) retain ownership of the Paid Content itself and any copies or portions thereof. The Paid Content is licensed, not sold, to you by us for use only under this Agreement, and we reserve all rights not expressly granted to you. Your rights under this license to use and access the Paid Content will terminate automatically without notice from ServiceNow if you fail to comply with any of these provisions.
