New Relic will provide Service and Software support to Customer in accordance with the “Service Level Commitment” table as set forth at: https://newrelic.com/application-monitoring/pricing.

2.6 Third Party Services. Customer may choose to use with the Service a product, system, software or service not provided by New Relic, such as an integration, application or plug-in (for instance to share Customer Data with, or to import data from, a third party service such as AWS or Kubernetes into Customer’s Account) (“Third Party Services”).

Any changes to Third Party Services do not affect or excuse Customer obligations under this Agreement. If Customer enables a Third Party Service for use with the Service, Customer grants to New Relic permission to interoperate with the Third Party Service, and any data received by New Relic on Customer’s behalf from any Third Party Services will be treated as Customer Data under this Agreement, including for purposes of Fees.
3. CUSTOMER DATA; SECURITY
3.1 Customer Data. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, Customer hereby grants to New Relic, and its affiliates, a limited, non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free right to collect, host, use, process, copy, store, transmit, display and create derivative works of the Customer Data, in each case solely to the extent necessary to provide the applicable Service to Customer and to manage and develop and improve its products and services. New Relic may also access Customer’s Account for maintenance and support. New Relic provides Customer configuration and data control options in the Services, such as controls over sending data to and from the Service, setting up integrations for sending data to Customer’s desired endpoints, such as Customer’s Third Party Services, and querying Customer Data. Customer, through its use and configuration of the Service, is instructing New Relic to process Customer Data. New Relic shall process Customer Data via the Service on behalf of Customer only in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and as necessary to provide the Service.
3.2 Security. New Relic provides Customer with the option to encrypt the transmission of Customer Data. Customer acknowledges that it is the Customer’s responsibility to encrypt the transmission of Customer Data should Customer wish to protect it. In the event Customer decides not to utilize encryption and transmit Customer Data unencrypted over a network, Customer assumes all related risks for doing so. The Service will include industry standard administrative, physical, and technical safeguards designed to protect the security, confidentiality and integrity of Customer Data as further described in the Documentation. Except as set forth herein, New Relic will not be liable for Customer’s use of the Service (including Customer’s transmission of Customer Data) over the Internet or other network, or to Customer in the event that such administrative, physical and technical safeguards fail to prevent unauthorized third-party access to Customer Data. New Relic cannot guarantee that its storage or transmission of Customer Data will always be secure, inaccessible, or that unauthorized third parties will not be able to defeat New Relic’s security measures.
3.3 Rights in Customer Data. Customer represents and warrants that it has the rights and licenses necessary to grant the license in Section 3.1 and to otherwise provide Customer Data to New Relic in connection with Customer’s use of the Service and that by providing its Customer Data it will not violate any intellectual property or privacy rights of third parties, confidential relationships, contractual obligations or applicable laws. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Customer shall provide all notices to, and obtain any consents from, any data subject as required by any applicable law, rule or regulation in connection with the processing of any personal data of such data subjects via the Service by New Relic and/or Customer. Customer shall be solely responsible for ensuring that any processing of Customer Data by New Relic and/or Customer via the Service does not violate any applicable laws. Customer shall not process or submit to the Service any Customer Data that includes any: (i) “protected health information,” as defined under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act; (ii) personal data about individuals under the age of 16, which for the avoidance of doubt includes any “personal information” as such term is defined under the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act; (iii) government issued identification numbers, including Social Security numbers, driver’s license numbers and other state-issued identification numbers; (iv) financial account information, including bank account numbers; (v) the combination of a username or email address along with a password or security question and answer that would permit access to an online account; (vi) financial account number or payment card data, including credit card or debit card numbers; (vii) precise geolocation data; and (viii) “special categories” of personal data, as defined under Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament (“GDPR”), or any national laws adopted pursuant to any of the foregoing, about residents of Switzerland and any member country of the European Union, including personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious beliefs, trade union membership, physical or mental health or condition, sexual life, sexual orientation, genetic data, biometric data, or the commission or alleged commission any crime or offense. New Relic shall not be liable to the extent that the Customer processes data through, or submits data to, the Service in breach of this Section 3.3.
4. SERVICE LEVEL COMMITMENT
The service level within New Relic's control is the availability of the Service, not, for example, the transmission of data over the public Internet. New Relic will make commercially reasonable efforts to make the Service available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, except for: (a) planned maintenance periods; (b) emergency maintenance that is necessary to prevent imminent harm to the Service; (c) any Force Majeure (as defined herein); (d) unavailability caused by any Third Party Services; or (e) unavailability arising from Customer's use of the Service in violation of the Agreement, or any suspension, limitation, and/or termination of Customer’s access or use of the Service therefrom. The Service will be considered available so long as Customer is able to log in to its interface and view Customer Data (“Service Availability”). New Relic will use commercially reasonable efforts to maintain Service Availability (except as set forth above) of at least 99.8% during any calendar month. In the event the Service Availability drops below: (i) 98.5% for two consecutive calendar months during the Subscription Term, or (ii) 96.5% in any single calendar month, Customer may request to terminate the relevant Service with no penalty. Such termination will be effective as of the end of the then-current billing period and no additional Fees will be charged. Customers may request the Service Availability attainment for the previous month by filing a support ticket on the New Relic support site. The applicable Service Availability will be calculated as a percentage of: (1) the total number of minutes in a month after (2) subtracting any periods of unavailability during such month (excluding as set forth above) from the total number of minutes in a month. This Section 4 describes Customer’s sole remedy for failures of Service Availability.
5.1 Fees. Except as otherwise specified herein, in the Usage Plan or in an Order Form, (i) Fees are quoted and payable in United States Dollars, and payment obligations are non-cancelable and Fees paid are non-refundable. If Customer exceeds usage limits in an Order Form, Customer will pay overage fees in accordance with the Order Form, the Usage Plan, or this Agreement. New Relic refers to the Service pricing and invoicing related information contained with the Documentation as the “Usage Plan.”
5.2 Taxes. Unless otherwise stated in the Order Form, New Relic’s Fees and pricing do not include any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including but not limited to value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes, accessible by any local, state, provincial, federal or foreign jurisdiction (collectively, “Taxes”). Customer is responsible for paying all Taxes associated with this Agreement. If New Relic has the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which Customer is responsible under this Section, the appropriate amount will be invoiced to and paid by Customer, unless Customer provide New Relic with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. For clarity, New Relic is solely responsible for taxes assessable against it based on New Relic’s income, property and employees.
5.3 Invoicing and Payment. New Relic will invoice Customer in advance and in accordance with the applicable Order Form or Usage Plan. Unless otherwise stated in an Order Form or Usage Plan, invoiced charges will be paid no more than 30 days after the date of electronic delivery of an invoice. Customer is responsible for maintaining complete and accurate billing and contact information with New Relic.
5.4 Failure to Pay. Customer’s failure to pay any Fees when due is a material breach of this Agreement for which New Relic may provide notice of breach and terminate the Agreement after 30 days’ notice thereof in accordance with Section 11.2. Upon termination, all amounts due for the entire Subscription Term will be paid. Without limitation of its other rights, New Relic may suspend, or limit, the Service for Customer’s failure to pay any Fees when due after New Relic provides Customer with 30 days’ notice of such failure. Customer will continue to be charged all applicable subscription Fees for the Service during any period of suspension.
5.5 Overdue Charges. Any Fees not paid when due will accrue interest at the rate of 12% per annum (or 1.0% per month), or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is higher.
6.1 “Confidential Information” means all confidential information in oral, written, graphic, electronic or other form furnished to the receiving party that: (i) is designated as “Confidential,” “Proprietary,” or some similar designation; or (ii) reasonably appears to be confidential or proprietary because of legends or other markings, the circumstances of disclosure, or the nature of the information itself. Confidential Information may also include the confidential or proprietary information of a third party disclosed to the disclosing party and then to the receiving party. Unless falling into one of the exceptions below, Customer Data is the Confidential Information of Customer. Unless falling into one of the exceptions below, the software underlying the Service and Software is the Confidential Information of New Relic. Confidential Information does not include data or information which: (i) was in the public domain at the time it was disclosed or falls within the public domain after disclosure, except through the fault of the receiving party; (ii) was known to the receiving party at the time of disclosure without an obligation of confidentiality, as demonstrated by competent evidence; (iii) (a) is disclosed after written approval of the disclosing party, or (b) Feedback (as further defined); (iv) becomes rightfully known to the receiving party from a source other than the disclosing party without an obligation of confidentiality; or (v) is developed by the receiving party independently of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information as demonstrated by competent evidence.
6.2 Neither party will: (i) disclose the other party’s Confidential Information to a third party or (ii) use the Confidential Information for any purpose other than as indicated in this Agreement without the disclosing party’s prior written approval. The receiving party agrees to notify the disclosing party promptly of any unauthorized disclosure of Confidential Information by providing details of the unauthorized disclosure and to assist the disclosing party in mitigating the impact of the unauthorized disclosure and as far as reasonably practicable remedying any such unauthorized disclosure. Except as set forth herein, each party will protect the other party’s Confidential Information with at least the same degree of care and confidentiality, but not less than a reasonable standard of care, which the party uses to protect its own information of similar character. All Confidential Information disclosed hereunder will remain the sole property of the disclosing party and the receiving party will have no interest in or rights with respect thereto except as expressly set forth in this Agreement. The obligation of confidentiality will survive termination of this Agreement.
6.3 Notwithstanding the foregoing, a party may disclose Confidential Information to the extent required: (i) to any consultant, contractor, advisor or counsel who has a bona fide need to know in connection with this Agreement and has executed a non-disclosure agreement, at least as protective as hereunder, with the receiving party or (ii) by operation of law, or by a court or governmental agency, or if necessary in any proceeding to establish rights or obligations under this Agreement; provided, the receiving party shall, unless legally prohibited, provide the other party with reasonable prior written notice sufficient to permit the other party an opportunity to contest such disclosure.
7. PROPRIETARY RIGHTS
7.1 Customer. Subject to the rights and licenses granted under this Agreement, as between the Parties, Customer retains all right, title and interest (including all intellectual property rights and other rights) in and to the Customer Data. New Relic does not claim any ownership rights to any Customer Data.
7.2 New Relic. As between the Parties, New Relic retains all right, title and interest (including all intellectual property rights and other rights) in and to the Service, Software and Documentation, subject only to the limited subscription grant expressly set forth herein. The Software may contain or be provided with components subject to the terms and conditions of “open source” software licenses identified in the Documentation. To the extent required, the license for any open source software separately made available by New Relic for download (e.g. community tools), will apply in lieu of the terms of this Agreement with respect to such software. For clarity, New Relic will have the unrestricted right to use or act upon any suggestions, ideas, enhancement requests, feedback and recommendations provided by Customer relating to the Service and Software (“Feedback”). Any intellectual property rights which may be created as a result of New Relic using or acting upon such Feedback shall vest in, and remain the property of, New Relic. Customer does not acquire any rights, express or implied, hereunder other than those rights expressly granted under this Agreement.
8. LIMITED WARRANTY AND DISCLAIMER

In the event of any breach of the above warranty, New Relic will use reasonable commercial efforts to correct the non-conforming Service in accordance with the Documentation at no additional charge to the Customer. In the event that New Relic is unable to correct a non-conforming Service, Customer may terminate the applicable Service and receive a refund of all pre-paid, unused Fees. New Relic’s obligations hereunder for breach of warranty are conditioned upon Customer notifying New Relic of such breach in writing and providing New Relic with sufficient evidence of such non-conformity to enable New Relic to reproduce and/or verify the same. THE FOREGOING REMEDY IS CUSTOMER’S SOLE REMEDY IN THE EVENT OF A BREACH OF THE LIMITED WARRANTY ABOVE.
8.4 DISCLAIMER. EXCEPT FOR THE EXPRESS LIMITED WARRANTY MADE ABOVE, THE SERVICE AND ALL RELATED SOFTWARE, SUPPORT, DOCUMENTATION AND OTHER INFORMATION AND MATERIALS ARE PROVIDED AS-IS AND AS-AVAILABLE AND NEW RELIC DISCLAIMS AND MAKES NO ADDITIONAL WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT AND WHETHER OR NOT ARISING THROUGH A COURSE OF DEALING. NEW RELIC DOES NOT WARRANT THAT USE OF THE SERVICE WILL BE ERROR-FREE OR UNINTERRUPTED, THAT NEW RELIC WILL REVIEW CUSTOMER DATA FOR ACCURACY, OR THAT CUSTOMER DATA WILL BE MAINTAINED WITHOUT LOSS. ADDITIONALLY, ANY THIRD PARTY TECHNOLOGY DOWNLOADED OR OTHERWISE OBTAINED IN CONNECTION WITH CUSTOMER’S USE OF THE SERVICE IS USED AT CUSTOMER’S OWN DISCRETION AND RISK, AND CUSTOMER WILL BE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR AND HEREBY WAIVE ANY AND ALL CLAIMS AND CAUSES OF ACTION WITH RESPECT TO ANY DAMAGE TO CUSTOMER’S COMPUTER SYSTEM, INTERNET ACCESS, DOWNLOAD OR DISPLAY DEVICE, OR LOSS OF DATA THAT RESULTS FROM THE USE OF ANY SUCH THIRD PARTY SERVICES.

9.2 Customer Indemnification Obligations. Customer will indemnify and defend New Relic and their officers, directors and employees against any third party claim, suit, proceeding, fine, or sanction (to the extent permitted by law) brought against or imposed on such party (including New Relic’s costs in responding to the foregoing) arising from or relating to: (i) the misuse of the Service by Customer, or misuse of the Service by individuals acting on Customer’s behalf, or (ii) Customer Data or the use thereof, including but not limited to, allegations that processing of Customer Data by New Relic or Customer under this Agreement infringes the privacy or intellectual property rights of a third party or violates any applicable law or regulation (each a “New Relic Claim”) provided that: (a) Customer is promptly notified in writing of a New Relic Claim, (b) the indemnified party provides reasonable assistance (at Customer expense) with such New Relic Claim, and (c) Customer is accorded the right to have sole discretion to direct the defense and any negotiations or settlement of such New Relic Claim.

12.6 Force Majeure. Neither party will be responsible for any failure to perform or delay in performing any of its obligations under this Agreement (except for a failure to pay Fees) where and to the extent that such failure or delay results directly or indirectly from an event beyond such party’s reasonable control, including without limitation, acts of God, acts of government, floods, fires, earthquakes, civil unrest, acts of terror, strikes or other labor problems (other than those involving New Relic employees), failures of the Internet, third-party service provider failures or delays, or denial of service attacks (“Force Majeure”).
12.7 Injunctive Relief. Each party acknowledges and agrees that a breach or threatened breach of any covenant contained in this Agreement may cause irreparable injury, that money damages may be an inadequate remedy and that each party will be entitled to seek temporary and permanent injunctive relief, without the posting of any bond or other security, to restrain the other party from such breach or threatened breach.

Customer will not export the Service to a person or entity denied, prohibited, debarred or sanctioned (denied) by the United States Government, and Customer represents that it is not such a denied person or entity.
12.10 Government End User. For purposes of this Agreement and to the extent applicable, the Service and Software are "commercial computer software" and a “commercially available off-the-shelf (COTS) item” as "commercial computer software" is defined at FAR 2.101 developed at the private expense of New Relic. If acquired by or on behalf of a civilian agency, the U.S. Government acquires this commercial computer software and/or commercial computer software documentation and other technical data subject to the terms of the Agreement as specified in 48 C.F.R. 12.212 (Computer Software) and 12.211 (Technical Data) of the Federal Acquisition Regulation ("FAR") and its successors.

This Section is in lieu of, and supersedes, any other FAR, DFARS, or other clause or provision that addresses government rights in computer software or technical data.
12.11 Changes to the Agreement. New Relic may modify this Agreement from time to time provided that if a modification materially impacts this Agreement, New Relic will use reasonable efforts to notify Customer (by, for example, sending an email to the billing or technical contact Customer designates in the applicable Order Form, posting on New Relic’s website, or through Customer’s Account). New Relic may release extra features, modules, or pre-release, preview and beta products available to Customer subject to Service Specific Terms. If New Relic modifies this Agreement during the Customer’s then-current Subscription Term, the modified version will be posted on https://newrelic.com/termsandconditions/enhanced-terms-of-service and will only be effective if Customer assents to such changes or upon the Customer’s next renewal of a Subscription Term, except changes required by law or as necessary for new features will immediately become effective to the extent necessary to comply with such law or as required to use such new features. If Customer objects to the updated New Relic Enhanced Terms of Service, as Customer’s exclusive remedy, Customer may choose not to renew, including cancelling any Subscription Term set to auto-renew.
12.12 Entire Agreement; Severability; Counterparts. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the Parties hereto pertaining to the subject matter hereof, and any and all prior or contemporaneous written or oral agreements existing between the Parties hereto and related to the subject matter hereof are expressly canceled. Customer acknowledges and agrees that any information provided by New Relic regarding potential future products, features, or functionality is intended to outline New Relic’s general product direction. Customer’s purchasing decision has not relied upon such information nor is dependent on any oral or written public comments made by New Relic. Any failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver thereof or of any other provision. In the event that any provision of this Agreement is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, such provisions will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
