Except as provided in a separately executed agreement, We are free to use any information, suggestions, or recommendations ("Feedback") You provide Us pursuant to this Agreement for any purpose, including Feedback on Splunk Materials.
10. USE OF USER DATA
To the extent You receive access to the User Data, You represent and warrant that You have notified Us and all of Your Users who are subjects of the User Data, or will notify them prior to their use of Your Application, that You may receive such data, and that We are not responsible for the privacy, security or integrity of the User Data. You further represent and warrant that to the extent You or Your Application stores, processes, collects or transmits User Data, neither You nor Your Application will, without appropriate prior user consent (except to the extent required by applicable law): (1) modify the content of the User Data in a manner that makes it inaccurate or misleading, (2) disclose or make available Your User Data to any third party other than Your applicable customer, or (3) use Your User Data for any purpose other than providing Your Application’s functionality, support and improvements to Users. You will also maintain and handle all of Your User Data in accordance with privacy and security measures reasonably adequate to preserve its confidentiality and security and all applicable privacy laws and regulations. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this paragraph does not restrict Your use or disclosure of aggregated and anonymized data containing Your User Data, provided that no Users are identified or identifiable through such aggregated data or through Your use of such aggregated data.
11.1 As used in this Agreement, "Confidential Information" means any information described below which is disclosed by one party (You or Us) to the other that is designated as confidential or that reasonably should be understood to be confidential given the nature of the information and the circumstances of disclosure. Your Confidential Information is limited to non-public aspects of Your Applications and any nonpublic information that You submit to Us in writing (including electronically) as part of our process for reviewing or listing Your Applications. Your Confidential Information may include non-publicly available code or other materials You submit for verification by Splunk that are clearly identified in writing as confidential. Notwithstanding the forgoing, Your Confidential Information does not include Application Failure Messages, which may be shared with third parties who want to use Your Application in their Splunk cloud instance but where Your Application cannot be deployed. Our Confidential Information is limited to non-public aspects of Listing Site and Our applications; non-public aspects of third-party applications listed on Listing Site to which you obtain access as a result of the relationship between You and Us under this Agreement; and non-public technology, customer data, Personal Data (defined below), technical information, and product plans to which You obtain access as a result of the relationship between You and Us under this Agreement. Confidential Information (except for Our customer data or Our data that relates to an identified or identifiable person (“Personal Data”)) does not include any information that: (i) is or becomes generally known to the public without breach of an obligation owed to the disclosing party (“Discloser”); (ii) was known to the receiving party (“Recipient”) before its disclosure by the Discloser without breach of an obligation owed to the Discloser; (iii) was independently developed by the Recipient without breach of an obligation owed to the Discloser; or (iv) is received from a third party without breach of an obligation owed to the Discloser.
11.2 During the term of this Agreement and for five (5) years thereafter, the Recipient may not disclose or use any Confidential Information of the Discloser for any purpose outside the scope of this Agreement, except with the Discloser's prior written permission; provided, however, Splunk may disclose the Confidential Information to its directors, officers, employees, consultants and service providers (“Representatives”) for purposes consistent with this Agreement and subject to such Representatives agreeing to keep the Confidential Information confidential. Our customer data and Our Personal Data must remain confidential and subject to applicable privacy laws at all times; for the avoidance of doubt, this means even after the five (5) year period referenced in this section, Our customer data and Our Personal Data must remain confidential. Each party agrees to protect the confidentiality of the Confidential Information of the other party in the same manner that it protects the confidentiality of its own proprietary and confidential information of like kind (but in no event using less than reasonable care).
11.3 If the Recipient is compelled by law to disclose Confidential Information of the Discloser, it must provide the Discloser with prior notice of such compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) and reasonable assistance, at Discloser's cost, if the Discloser wishes to contest the disclosure.
11.4 If the recipient discloses or uses (or threatens to disclose or use) any confidential information of the discloser in breach of confidentiality protections hereunder, the discloser will have the right, in addition to any other remedies available to it, to seek injunctive relief to enjoin such acts, it being specifically acknowledged by the parties that any other available remedies are inadequate.
12. WARRANTY DISCLAIMER
We make no warranty or guarantee regarding:
(a) any benefits, materials or services that We provide to You as a developer of Listing Site Application, including Splunk Materials. In particular, We do not warrant or guarantee that those services and benefits will increase Your sales; or
(b) any third-party applications or content on Listing Site, even if We reviewed, tested, or moderated those applications or content.
We disclaim all warranties, including but not limited to any implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement.
13. RISK OF INFRINGEMENT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS; RELEASE
You acknowledge the risk that Users who access Your Materials through the Listing Site may develop applications that infringe or misappropriate Your IP Rights in Your Applications. Nothing in this Agreement restricts You from pursuing claims against such Users. However, in that event, You agree that Our provision of, and actions relating to, the Listing Site (including the vetting and deployment of any Listing Site Application) does not constitute contributory infringement or aiding or abetting of any such infringement or misappropriation.
You hereby release and waive all claims against Us from any and all liability for claims, damages, costs and expenses of every kind and nature, arising out of or in any way connected with Your Materials and Your use of the Listing Site. If You are a California resident, You waive Your rights under California Civil Code Section 1542, which states “a general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known to him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.” Residents of other states and nations similarly waive their rights under applicable and/or analogous laws or regulations.
You will indemnify, defend and hold Us and Our subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, and employees harmless from any claims by third parties, and any related damages, losses or costs (including reasonable attorney fees and costs), arising out of a claim or demand (i) alleging that any of Your Materials infringe, misappropriate or violate any rights of a third party, (ii) related to any content or data routed into or used with Splunk Materials by You or those acting on Your behalf, or (iii) of an alleged breach by You related to any of Your Materials or Your breach of this Agreement. Splunk will provide prompt notice in writing of the claim; will grant You sole control of the defense and settlement of the claim, except that: (a) We may participate in the defense with counsel of Our choice at Our own expense, and (b) You will not, without Our prior written consent, agree to any settlement that (i) fails to release Us from all liability, (ii) contains an admission of fault or (iii) imposes a material obligation on Us; and We will provide You with all assistance, information and authority reasonably required for the defense and settlement of the claim, at Your cost.
15. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
WE DO NOT HAVE ANY LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY LOST PROFITS, REVENUE, OR DATA, OR FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, HOWEVER CAUSED AND, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR UNDER ANY OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY, EVEN IF YOU OR WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, AND IN NO EVENT WILL OUR AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, SPLUNK MATERIALS, OR LISTING SITE, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR UNDER ANY OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY, EXCEED THE GREATER OF $100 OR THE AMOUNTS PAID BY AND DUE FROM YOU UNDER THIS AGREEMENT.
16. GOVERNING LAW. This Agreement is governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, as if performed wholly within the state and without giving effect to the principles of conflict of law and without regard to the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. Any legal action or proceeding arising under this Agreement must be brought exclusively in the federal or state courts located in the Northern District of California and the parties hereby consent to personal jurisdiction and venue therein.
17. EXPORT CONTROL. You may not use or otherwise export or re-export any Splunk Materials, except as authorized by the laws of the United States. In particular, but without limitation, you may not export or re-export Splunk Materials and Your Materials (a) into any U.S. embargoed countries or (b) to anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department's list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Department of Commerce Denied Persons List or Entity List. You represent and warrant that You are not located in any such country or on any such list. You also agree that You will not use or re-export any Splunk Materials and Your Materials for any purposes prohibited by United States law, including, without limitation, the development, design, manufacture or production of nuclear, chemical or biological weapons. You are solely responsible for ensuring that Your provision of Your Materials to Users through Listing Site comply with any and all regulations regarding export and import of technology in relevant jurisdictions.
18. PUBLICITY. You will not issue any press release announcing or relating to any Listing Site Application, Listing Site or this Agreement without the prior written approval of Splunk, except as required by law. Permitted marketing communications for Your Application are limited to Splunk’s pre-approved blogging and social media promotion. Prior to posting, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for review/approval and messaging and positioning guidance.
19. MISCELLANEOUS. No delay or failure to take action under this Agreement constitutes a waiver unless expressly waived in writing, signed by a duly authorized representative of the party, and no single waiver constitutes a continuing or subsequent waiver. This Agreement binds Your successors but may not be assigned, in whole or part, by You without the written approval of Splunk. Any non-conforming assignment is null and void. The Splunk Materials were developed solely at private expense and are commercial computer software and related documentation within the meaning of the applicable U.S. Federal Acquisition Regulation and agency supplements thereto. If any provision is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties with respect to its subject matter and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous understandings regarding the subject matter. No addition to or removal or modification of any of the provisions of this Agreement are binding upon Splunk unless made in writing and signed by Splunk.
