This Ocean9 Subscription Agreement (this “Agreement”) contains the terms and conditions that govern your access to and use of the Service Offerings (as defined below) as an Account Owner and is an agreement between Ocean9 (“Ocean9,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) and you or the entity you represent (“you”). This Agreement takes effect when you click an “I Accept the Terms and Conditions” check box presented with these terms and conditions (the “Effective Date”). If you register for a free trial for our Services, this Agreement will also govern that free trial. You represent to us that you are lawfully able to enter into contracts (e.g., you are not a minor). If you are entering into this Agreement for an entity, such as the company you work for, you represent to us that you have legal authority to bind that entity. You may not access the Services if you are our direct competitor, except with our prior written consent. In addition, you may not access the Services for purposes of monitoring performance or functionality, or for any other benchmarking or competitive purposes. Please see Section 15 for definitions of certain capitalized terms used in this Agreement.
1.1 Generally. You may access and use the Service Offerings in accordance with this Agreement. You will adhere to all laws, rules, and regulations applicable to your use of the Service Offerings, including the Acceptable Use Policy and the other Policies as defined in Section 15.
1.2 Your Ocean9 Account. To access the Services, you must create an Ocean9 account associated with a valid e-mail address. You may only create one account per email address. You are responsible for all activities that occur under your account, regardless of whether the activities are undertaken by you, your employees or a third party (including your contractors or agents) and, except to the extent caused by our breach of this Agreement, we and our affiliates are not responsible for unauthorized access to your account. You will contact us immediately if you believe an unauthorized third party may be using your account or if your account information is lost or stolen. You may terminate your account and this Agreement at any time in accordance with Section 8.
1.3 Your AWS Account. To use the Ocean9 Services, you must create an AWS account or provide access to an existing AWS account in good standing. You also authorize Ocean9 to create AWS Configurations on Client’s AWS account. These configurations are only triggered by you when initiating an Ocean9 Operation. No manual changes are applied to customers AWS account by us.
1.4 Support to You. Business hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific Time, Monday through Friday. Community support is available during normal business hours by sending an email to email@example.com. We are closed for business during these holidays: New Year’s Day, President's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and the Friday after, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day.
1.5 Third Party Content. Third Party Content, such as software applications provided by third parties, may be made available directly to you by other companies or individuals under separate terms and conditions, including separate fees and charges. Because we may not have tested or screened the Third Party Content, your use of any Third Party Content is at your sole risk.
2.1 To the Service Offerings. We may change, discontinue, or deprecate any of the Service Offerings (including the Service Offerings as a whole) or change or remove features or functionality of the Service Offerings from time to time. We will notify you of any material change to or discontinuation of the Service Offerings.
2.2 To the APIs. We may change, discontinue or deprecate any APIs for the Services from time to time but will use commercially reasonable efforts to continue supporting the previous version of any API changed, discontinued, or deprecated for 12 months after the change, discontinuation, or deprecation (except if doing so (a) would pose a security or intellectual property issue, (b) is economically or technically burdensome, or (c) is needed to comply with the law or requests of governmental entities).
We offer our Service Offerings to you under a 30-day free trial period program. The trial period begins immediately upon account activation. The free trial period only applies to new customers and does not apply to existing customers who have a subscription plan. Ocean9 will also not honor a free trial period for customers who were once paying subscribers, cancelled, and then decided to re-instate their subscription to the Services. At any time during the 30-day free trial period, you can cancel your account by providing us written notice at firstname.lastname@example.org and you will not be billed. We do not ask for credit card information to sign up for the 30-day free trial period. If you forget to cancel within the 30-day free trial period, your account WILL NOT BE CHARGED and your access will automatically be cancelled by our customer support team. You will not incur any charges. In order to continue using the Services after the 30-day free trial period, you will be asked to subscribe to one of our subscription plans.
YOUR AWS CONFIGURATIONS THAT WERE POPULATED INTO YOUR AWS ACCOUNT BY THE OCEAN9 SYSTEM DURING YOUR FREE TRIAL WILL BE PERMANENTLY DELETED UNLESS YOU PURCHASE A SUBSCRIPTION TO AT LEAST THE LOWEST SERVICE TIER THAT COVERS YOUR USAGE OF OCEAN9 AT THE END OF THE TRAIL PERIOD. FOR OCEAN9 TO DELETE CONFIGURATIONS CREATED BY THE OCEAN9 SERVICE, YOU COMMIT TO ALLOW ACCESS TO YOUR AWS ACCOUNT FOR SUCH DELETION. IF YOU REVOKE OCEAN9 ACCESS TO YOUR AWS ACCOUNT, YOU WILL INCUR CHARGES AT THE MEASURED AND DOCUMENTED USAGE TIER. YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THESE CHARGES.
4.1 Ocean9 Security. Without limiting Section 11 or your obligations under Section 5.2 and 5.3 we will implement reasonable and appropriate measures designed to help you secure Your Content against accidental or unlawful loss, access or disclosure, as described more fully in Addendum A: Data Security Standards.
4.2 Data Privacy. You may specify the AWS regions in which Your Content will be stored. You consent to the storage of Your Content in, and transfer of Your Content into, the AWS regions you select. We will not access or use Your Content except as necessary to maintain or provide the Service Offerings, or as necessary to comply with the law or a binding order of a governmental body.
4.3 Project Data. Ocean9 does not at any time during the contractual agreement or thereafter require access to your Project Data. However, in rare situations and only when initiated by you, Ocean9 is willing to help handle or access customer Project Data in the context of an Ocean9 support request. In such cases, you grant Ocean9 and its partners, vendors, and affiliates a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual, non-revocable license to use, compile, distribute, display, store, process, reproduce, or create derivative works of the Project Data solely to facilitate the Service Offerings in the context of your support request. In addition, you grant Ocean9 a license to aggregate the Project Data for use in an anonymous manner in support of Ocean9’s marketing and sales activities. You also grant Ocean9 the right to copy and maintain such material and content on Ocean9’s servers (or the servers of its suppliers) during the Term of this Agreement. You represent and warrant that you have obtained all rights, permissions, and consents necessary to use and transfer the Project Data in conjunction with your use of the Service Offerings. You further represent that the Project Data does not include patient information or records subject to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”). Subject to this Section 3.2, Ocean9 agrees that it will not give any third party access to Project Data. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Ocean9 may disclose Project Data as required by applicable law or by proper legal or governmental authority. Ocean9 will notify you within fourteen (14) days of any such legal or governmental demand and reasonably cooperate with you in any effort to seek a protective order or otherwise to contest such required disclosure, at your expense, including but not limited to attorney’s fees.
4.4 Data Management. You possess and retain all right, title, and interest in and to Your Content. You may access and export any of Your Content in our possession at any time prior to the termination of this Agreement, through the user interface of the Service Offerings.

If you require Professional Services support, we reserve the right to charge a Transition Services Fee.
4.5 Service Attributes. To provide billing and administration services, we may process Service Attributes in the AWS region(s) where you use the Service Offerings and the AWS regions in the United States. To provide you with support services initiated by you and investigate fraud, abuse or violations of this Agreement, we may process Service Attributes where we maintain our support and investigation personnel.
5.1 Your Content. You are solely responsible for the development, operation, maintenance, and use of Your Content. For example, you are solely responsible for:
(a) the technical operation of Your Content, including ensuring that calls you make to any Ocean9 capability are compatible with then-current APIs for that capability;
(b) compliance of Your Content with the Acceptable Use Policy, the other Policies, and the law;
(c) any claims relating to Your Content; and
(d) properly handling and processing notices sent to you (or any of your affiliates) by any person claiming that Your Content violate such person’s rights, including notices pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

Ocean9 does not access, receive, control, store, process, transmit, maintain, or possess any of Your Business Data while providing you with access to and use of the Ocean9 Service. All of Your Content is stored, safeguarded, and secured by Amazon Web Services. Amazon and Ocean9 responsibilities are defined in the Ocean9 Shared Responsibility Model set forth in Addendum B: Ocean9 Shared Responsibility Model. The Ocean9 Shared Responsibility Model is derived from and conforms with the AWS Shared Responsibility Model (https://aws.amazon.com/compliance/shared-responsibility-model/). Accordingly, Amazon and not Ocean9, is responsible to adhere to industry standards and practices in the maintenance of the 50+ AWS Platform Services that are provided in the AWS Global Infrastructure. Ocean9 is responsible for providing and maintaining best practices for deploying and operating SAP HANA on the AWS platform. Finally, you are responsible for Identity and Access Management of your users to the Ocean9 services, and any additional network integrations between the Ocean9 network and your corporate network.
5.3 Other Security and Backup. You are responsible for properly configuring and using the Service Offerings and taking your own steps to maintain appropriate security, protection and backup of Your Content, including protecting your Ocean9 account from unauthorized access. Ocean9 log-in credentials generated by the Services are for your internal use only and you may not sell, transfer or sublicense them to any other entity or person, except that you may disclose your log-in credentials to your agents and subcontractors performing work on your behalf.
5.4 User Violations. You will be deemed to have taken any action that you permit, assist or facilitate any person or entity to take related to this Agreement, Your Content or use of the Service Offerings. You are responsible for Users’ use of Your Content and the Service Offerings. You will ensure that all Users comply with your obligations under this Agreement and that the terms of your agreement with each User are consistent with this Agreement. If you become aware of any violation of your obligations under this Agreement by a User, you will immediately terminate such User’s access to Your Content and the Service Offerings.
