Product Terms

These Terms (the “Agreement”) serve as a legal agreement between the customer accepting these Terms (“Customer”) and the relevant Adaptive Shield entity set out below (“Provider”) for access to and use of the Provider’s solution to assist in the assessment and improvement of cloud security (the “Solution”). This Agreement also applies to personnel designated by the Customer to use the Solution on the Customer’s behalf (“Users”), subject to Provider’s agreement with the Customer. If a Customer has entered a separate agreement with Provider (“Customer Agreement”), the Customer Agreement will govern the relationship between Customer and Provider and will supersede this Agreement in case of any conflict.

This Agreement shall also apply to Customers engaging by way of Provider’s authorized resellers or distributors or managed security services provider (each, a “Reseller”).

By using the Solution, Customer signifies its assent to this Agreement. Customer has no right to access or use the Solution except pursuant to the terms of this Agreement or a Customer Agreement.

Any individual accepting this Agreement on behalf of Customer represents and warrants that s/he is authorized to accept this Agreement on behalf of Customer and legally bind Customer to the terms and conditions set forth herein.

1. Solution – Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, Customer may evaluate and use the Solution during the Term (as defined below), solely for Customer’s own internal commercial needs. During the Term, Provider will provide maintenance and support services relating to the Solution in accordance with the terms of the service level agreement available at, except where a Reseller has agreed to provide maintenance and support services directly to Customer.

To the extent any of the above restrictions are not enforceable under applicable law, Customer or User shall inform Provider in writing in each instance prior to engaging in such activity.

3. Ownership – Provider retains all right, title and interest in the Solution, all modifications, enhancements and updates thereof, and all intellectual property rights in any of the foregoing. All rights not expressly granted to Customer or User are reserved to Provider. No licenses are granted by estoppel or by implication.

4. Payment – During the Term, the Customer shall pay for the use of the Solution such amounts as may be separately agreed in writing between Customer and Provider. To the extent Customer has engaged with a Reseller for use of the Solution, including engagement through AWS Marketplace, payment shall be made to the Reseller or as otherwise agreed between the parties. In such case, should the agreement between Provider and Reseller terminate for any reason, payments shall be made directly to Provider. Customer is responsible for any taxes that may accrue to Customer from the use of the Solution during the Term. Customer acknowledges that, to the extent the Reseller fails to make payment to Provider, Provider may suspend or terminate provision of the Solution to Customer.

Each party undertakes to keep all confidential information of the other party confidential and not to use or disclose such information except as permitted in these Terms. Confidential information does not include information that was rightfully in Recipient’s possession or in the public domain, free of any obligation of confidence, at or subsequent to the time it was shared with Recipient, nor does it include materials developed by Recipient independently without use of, or reference to, any of the other party’s confidential information. Recipient may disclose confidential information where required to comply with applicable law and/or a court order and, if permitted, will provide notice of such requirement.

In addition, Provider may compile aggregated and anonymized data regarding the use of the Solution (“Statistical Information”).
