Last updated April 8, 2024. Replaces all prior versions.

PLEASE READ THESE RAPIDSCALE TERMS CAREFULLY AS THEY, TOGETHER WITH THE SERVICE DOCUMENTS REFERENCED BELOW, CONSTITUTE A LEGALLY BINDING AGREEMENT THAT CONTAINS IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING CUSTOMER’S LEGAL RIGHTS AND REMEDIES. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED HEREIN, CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT RAPIDSCALE MAY CHANGE THESE RAPIDSCALE TERMS AT ANY TIME AS SET FORTH HEREIN. 

Customer (and any purported representative of Customer) represents and warrants that it has the lawful authority to bind Customer to accept the RapidScale Terms, and that Customer (and any purported representative of Customer) has read, understood, acknowledged and agreed to be bound by these RapidScale Terms. The “RapidScale Terms” means the terms and conditions located at this URL (located at https://rapidscale.net/terms-and-conditions) including without limitation any terms and conditions contained in the other URLs contained in these terms and conditions.

SECTION A

GENERAL TERMS

The “General Terms” are set forth in this Section A of the RapidScale Terms.

  1. GENERAL. By (i) using RapidScale’s and its affiliates, subsidiaries, parents, and related companies’ (“RapidScale”, “us”, “our”, “we”) websites, web portals, applications, software, products and services, including, but not limited to, those services and products identified in the applicable Service Documents (as hereinafter defined) (collectively, the “Service(s)”), or (ii) agreeing to the RapidScale Terms, Customer (as such or similar term is defined in the applicable Service Order) (“Customer”, or “you”) agree to be bound by the Agreement (as defined below). RapidScale and Customer may each be referred to herein as a “Party” or collectively, the “Parties”. The RapidScale Terms are part of, and shall be incorporated into, any agreement between Customer and RapidScale in which the RapidScale Terms are referenced (including, but not limited to, all signed and clicked-through agreements), and any document that describes the Services that Customer are purchasing or otherwise receiving from RapidScale (including, without limitation, a service order, service agreement, service attachment, change order, or purchase order, each being deemed a “Service Order”), statement of work (“SOW”), addendums, attachments, amendments, schedules, exhibits, service level agreements (“SLAs”) available at https://rapidscale.net/sla and any other documents that are expressly incorporated herein (each a “Service Document” and, collectively, the “Service Documents”) between Customer and RapidScale (together with these RapidScale Terms, the “Agreement”). For informational purposes, Logicworks Systems Corporation was acquired by an affiliate of RapidScale, Inc. in 2023. Accordingly, all references to “Logicworks” in the Agreement shall mean the applicable RapidScale affiliate (for example,  Logicworks Systems Corporation, Logicworks Systems, LLC,  LW Systems Canada, LLC, or other RapidScale affiliate, as applicable) or RapidScale, Inc.
  2. ORDER OF PRECEDENCE. To the extent that a Service Document expressly references and modifies the RapidScale Terms, then the conflicting term of the Service Document will govern for the limited purposes set forth in the Service Document. To the extent the Third-Party Terms conflict with any other provision of the Agreement, such Third-Party Terms governs Customer’s use of the applicable Third-Party Resource (as defined in Section 7(g)) only. Except as provided above in this Section 2, the order of precedence of the governing contract documents is as follows: (1) the RapidScale Terms; (2) the Third-Party Terms; (3) any URLs containing RapidScale policies, terms of use, or service levels; (4) the Service Order; (5) the SOW; and (6) any other applicable Service Document.
  3. SERVICES. From time to time, the Parties may enter into one or more Service Documents. Subject to and conditioned upon Customer’s compliance with the Agreement, for any mutually executed Service Order, RapidScale may provide to Customer, in accordance with the Agreement, (a) engineering, architecting, implementation, custom development, consulting, artificial intelligence, machine learning and other professional services (“Professional Services”), (b) assessment, design, deployment, virtualization, automation, cost optimization, support, monitoring, alerting, reporting, and remediation services for the purposes of managing a Customer’s Cloud Infrastructure (as defined in Section 7(h)) (“Managed Services”), and/or (c) support for and access to tools, scripts, software, resources, systems, infrastructure and other products, including through the resale of third-party products (“Subscription Services”), in each case, as described in and limited by each Service Order and/or SOW.
  4. Hardware. Unless otherwise expressly provided in a Service Document, RapidScale retains ownership of all hardware, for which RapidScale maintains all associated warranties. Customer will not receive support, management or updates for hardware purchased by Customer directly from RapidScale (“Purchased Hardware”). RapidScale will remove all references to Purchased Hardware from its internal system(s), including the RapidScale’s portal. All Purchased Hardware is sold as is with no manufacturer warranties, and no applicable SLA or other support.
  5. TERM AND TERMINATION.
    1. Effective Date.The RapidScale Terms become effective on the earlier of (1) the date that any Service Order is fully executed by the Parties or (2) the date that Customer commences using any Service (the “Effective Date”) and shall continue until terminated in accordance with the RapidScale Terms. Prior to Services commencing, Customer may be required to complete a credit application. Upon approval of Customer’s credit application (if any), RapidScale will begin, as soon as practicable, the provisioning, installation, connection, billing and testing necessary to provide the Services. Billing for some or all Services may begin before full implementation of the Services. Billing may not be associated with the Effective Date. Customer acknowledges and agrees that RapidScale may have to perform certain service implementation activities for a period of time prior to a Service being made available to Customer (the “Preliminary Period”). The Preliminary Period for a Service will begin on the Effective Date and will continue until (i) RapidScale’s service implementation activities are completed, or (ii) five (5) days after RapidScale notifies Customer that certain actions are required to be performed by Customer.  When the Preliminary Period ends full billing for the applicable Service shall commence (the “Full Billing Date”). Subject to Section 5(e), the “Term” of the Agreement between the Parties begins on the Effective Date and includes any Preliminary Period(s) and the SO Term.
    2. Termination.

(A) Either Party may terminate the Agreement upon written notice to the other Party in the event that there are no active Service Orders. Unless otherwise provided in the Agreement, either Party may terminate the Agreement upon written notice if (i) such terminating Party provides the other Party with written notice of material breach of the Agreement, and (ii) such other Party fails to cure the breach within thirty (30) days of such notice of breach. If Customer terminates the Agreement after RapidScale’s material breach and failure to cure as set forth above, then Customer will be responsible for all charges for the period before the date of termination and for Services provided during Customer’s transition of Services from RapidScale.

(B) RapidScale may terminate the Agreement or any Service upon thirty (30) days’ prior written notice (which time frame may be less than thirty (30) days as RapidScale determines in good faith to be reasonably necessary or advisable in light of the relevant circumstance) prior to installation or in the event of a change in applicable laws, business circumstances, unavailability of any Service, or regulations that has a material adverse impact on RapidScale’s ability to provide a Service in a commercially reasonable manner.

(C) If RapidScale terminates the Agreement as a result of Customer’s material breach or Customer terminates the Agreement or any Services provided to Customer for any reason other than RapidScale’s material breach, Customer shall pay to RapidScale a termination charge as follows: (1) any (i) unpaid fees and any interest assessed thereon due by Customer for Services rendered by RapidScale under an applicable Service Document and (ii) non-cancellable Third-Party Resource fees that are outstanding and/or due by Customer for the remainder of the then-current SO Term, as applicable, (2) the retail rate for non-recurring Services, as set forth in the applicable Service Document, provided through the date of termination, even if those charges had been initially waived or discounted to Customer, and (3) one hundred percent (100%) of the monthly recurring charge (“MRC”) set forth in the applicable Service Order multiplied by the remaining months of the then-current SO Term, if applicable. If any Managed Services are terminated pursuant to this Section 5(b)(C), the MRC for such Managed Services shall be calculated as the six (6) month trailing average of all monthly recurring fees for such Managed Services as identified on the past six (6) months of invoices (excluding non-cancellable Third-Party Resource fees). The Agreement shall be deemed to survive termination or expiration for any SO Term that continues beyond the Term of the Agreement, and the terms and conditions in the Agreement shall govern the provision of Services under such Service Orders and/or any other Service Document. After expiration or termination of the Term of the Agreement, Customer shall not be authorized to purchase additional Services under the Agreement. If Customer has purchased a Third-Party Resource, then as soon as possible before any termination of the Agreement, Customer shall notify RapidScale as to whether Customer would like to retain the use of any such Third-Party Resource, it being understood that Customer’s failure to timely notify RapidScale of its intent will be deemed to be an election by Customer to deactivate all Third-Party Resources upon termination. For the avoidance of doubt, each Third-Party Resource may be discontinued unless Customer makes appropriate arrangements directly with the applicable third-party provider consistent with any Third-Party Terms.

    1. Termination Fees. The Parties agree that any fees set forth in the Agreement associated with RapidScale’s or Customer’s cancellation or early termination of the Services (the “Termination Fees”) constitute liquidated damages and are not intended as a penalty and represent a fair, reasonable, and appropriate estimate of RapidScale’s damages. If a particular Service is terminated by Customer without cause or by RapidScale for cause, and RapidScale advises Customer in writing that in RapidScale’s good faith judgment that a provision of a related Service is impractical or impossible (“Related Service”) as a result of such termination, then the Related Service shall be deemed terminated for cause by RapidScale and any applicable Termination Fees will apply.
    2. Suspension. RapidScale may suspend or otherwise restrict access to any Service or terminate the Agreement: (i) upon five (5) days’ prior notice in the event of any payment default, if such default is not cured within that period; (ii) immediately in the event of any violation of the Agreement (including, without limitation, the applicable acceptable use policy (“AUP”) as identified at https://rapidscale.net/acceptable-use-policy, which is incorporated herein by reference) by Customer or any of its members, end users, agents, customers or any other third parties (collectively, “Users”) who (1) utilize or access the Services provided hereunder, or (2) attempt to use the Services beyond the scope of the rights granted or for a purpose not authorized, including access that could reasonably be suspected to be fraudulent, misleading or unlawful activities; (iii) immediately in the event Customer does not cooperate in good faith with a reasonable investigation by RapidScale of a suspected data breach or a violation of the Agreement; (iv) immediately in the event that RapidScale reasonably believes Customer’s use of the Services violates applicable law, is likely to cause loss or liability to RapidScale, or RapidScale is otherwise required to suspend Customer’s access by a law enforcement agency or court order; (v) immediately in the event that there is an attack on a Third-Party Resource, a security incident occurs or an event occurs that RapidScale reasonably believes poses a threat to the integrity or security of the Cloud Infrastructure; (vi) immediately in the event that RapidScale believes Customer or any of Customer’s User’s use of the Services could adversely impact the Services, other customers or their end users’ use of the Services, or the RapidScale network or servers used to provide the Services; or (vii) immediately in the event that there is suspected unauthorized third-party access to the Services. RapidScale may lift any such suspension when the circumstances giving rise to the suspension have been resolved. At Customer’s request, unless prohibited by applicable law, RapidScale will notify Customer of the basis for the suspension. Any such suspension will be for the duration and to the extent that RapidScale determines, in its sole discretion, is reasonable under the circumstances in order to address the underlying circumstances. RapidScale may continue to invoice Customer for any applicable fees and charges during a suspension and require Customer to pay a reinstatement fee before Services are restored. The restoration of any Service suspended, decommissioned or otherwise interrupted may require a rebuild fee or Professional Services, as reasonably determined by RapidScale. RapidScale shall have no liability for any damage or other consequences that may result from a suspension.
    3. Service Term. The provisions of this Section 5(e) shall only apply where an applicable Service Order does not provide otherwise (i.e., where a Service Order does not set forth an effective date, initial term, or renewal term for a Service). Subject to Section 5(b), the term of any Service shall begin on earlier of (i) the conclusion of the Preliminary Period or (ii) the Full Billing Date and continues for the period specified in the Service Order, or if not specified in the Service Order, thirty-six (36) months (the “Service Term”). The Service Term will automatically renew for successive periods equal to the Service Term (each an “Service Renewal Term”), unless, prior to the expiration of the then-current Service Term, either Party provides, upon not less than ninety (90) days, written notice of non-renewal to the other party. If the then-current Service Term is not renewed (automatically or otherwise), then RapidScale shall have no duty or obligation to provide the Services to Customer after the expiration of the Service Term unless RapidScale explicitly agrees in writing. RapidScale may in RapidScale’s sole discretion, but shall not be obligated to, provide the Services to Customer, on a month-to-month basis, after the expiration of the then-current Service Term for a period of not more than ninety (90) days (the “Month-to-Month Period”), provided that Customer requests a continuation of the Services no later than thirty (30) days prior to the end of the then-current Service Term. During the Month-to-Month Period, Customer will be charged the sum of one hundred fifty percent (150%) of the MRC set forth in the applicable Service Order for each thirty (30) day period. In RapidScale’s discretion, RapidScale may require Customer to pay a one (1) month deposit at the inception of the Month-to-Month Period. Either Party may terminate a Month-to-Month Period upon thirty (30) days prior written notice. For the avoidance of doubt, the RapidScale Terms and any applicable Service Documents apply to Services provided during a Month-to-Month Period. The “SO Term” begins on the Effective Date and includes the Preliminary Period, the Service Term, and any Service Renewal Term(s).
  1. BILLING & PAYMENT.
    1. Billing. Customer will remit payment directly to RapidScale in accordance with the terms of the applicable Service Order. Except as otherwise may be set forth on a Service Document or on an invoice, all amounts due under the Agreement must be paid within thirty (30) days of when the invoice is dated (“Due Date”). Invoices will be sent by RapidScale in accordance with the applicable Service Document. In addition to any charges for Services, Customer shall also pay any third-party charges (e.g., installation, tariffs, taxes, Third-Party Resource fees, local access, regulatory charges, carrier charges, utilities, etc.) applicable to the Service(s) as well as any increases thereto, as they are incurred. Notwithstanding the Full Billing Date, Customer acknowledges and agrees that it is responsible for paying for all fees associated with any partially implemented Services during the Preliminary Period. Customer shall be responsible for all sales, use, withholding, value added and excise taxes, and any other similar taxes, duties and charges of any kind imposed by any federal, state or local governmental entity (or any international governmental entity, as applicable) on any amounts payable by Customer hereunder, as well as any increases thereto, provided that Customer shall not pay or be responsible for any taxes imposed on, or regarding, RapidScale’s income, revenues, gross receipts, personnel, or real or personal property or other assets. RapidScale may, upon ten (10) days prior notice, modify the payment terms or require a mutually acceptable form of security (e.g., a deposit) if Customer has repeatedly failed to pay its invoices by the Due Date or if there has been a material adverse change in Customer’s financial condition. Notwithstanding any other provision to the contrary in the Agreement, RapidScale may increase the charges applicable to any Service at any time to cover any unforeseen third-party rate increases, and if an increase is not due to unforeseen third-party rate increases, RapidScale may increase the charges applicable to the Services but not more than once per calendar year, provided that, if the Services are in a Service Renewal Term, then RapidScale may increase any charges at any time for any reason. An increase shall be effective upon the date set forth in RapidScale’s written notice thereof to Customer. All prices set forth in a Service Order are in U.S. Dollars and are estimates based on information that Customer provided to RapidScale.  Unless otherwise mutually agreed upon between the parties, Customer is responsible for all travel and living expenses that are reasonably necessary for RapidScale to provide the Services.  For Professional Services, the minimum hourly billing increment is one hour per person, and per contiguous one-quarter hour (15 minutes) after the first hour.
    2. Payment. Unless otherwise provided in the Agreement, all fees are nonrefundable and all invoices are due in full and payable by the Due Date and become past due after the Due Date. If Customer claims exemption from any taxes assessed on Professional Services or Managed Services, Customer shall provide RapidScale with sufficient supporting documentation. If Customer has a bona fide dispute with any of the amounts on the invoice (“Disputed Amount”), Customer shall pay all amounts not in dispute by the Due Date and provide RapidScale with a written request for a billing adjustment, together with all supporting documentation, within thirty (30) calendar days after the invoice date or Customer’s right to any billing adjustment shall be irrevocably waived. If RapidScale agrees to adjust all or a portion of the Disputed Amount, Customer will not be obligated to pay a late payment charge on the adjusted amount. If Customer fails to pay all non-Disputed Amount charges on RapidScale’s  invoice by the Due Date, RapidScale may impose a late payment charge of 1.5% per month or the maximum rate allowed by law, whichever is less, on the unpaid balance until the amount is paid in full. In accordance with Section 5(d), RapidScale may also suspend Customer’s Services until all delinquent amounts, including late payment charges, are paid in full. An additional charge will apply to each returned check. For clarity, Customer is obligated to pay all applicable invoices without any requirement for RapidScale to provide a purchase order number on the invoices (or otherwise).
    3. Payment Authorization. To satisfy its obligations on unpaid invoices, Customer may, upon execution of the Agreement, be required to provide RapidScale’s accounting team with credit card or bank account information (“Account Info”). Customer hereby authorizes its bank and credit card company to pay RapidScale any balances that are due on unpaid invoices (the “Authorization”). For credit card charges and automatic clearinghouse (“ACH”) debits to Customer’s bank account, Customer understands, agrees, and authorizes RapidScale to withdraw, charge, deduct or cause the electronic payment of any unpaid invoices on or about the fifteenth (15) of the month (“Automatic Payment Date”). In the case of any transaction that is rejected for non-sufficient funds or otherwise fails for any reason (a “Payment Failure”), Customer agrees that (i) it shall immediately update the Account Info and the updated Account Info will be subject to the Authorization and (ii) RapidScale may at its discretion attempt to process the charge again by any method authorized. Customer understands and agrees that a return item charge and other fees, including third-party collection fees, may be assessed for each Payment Failure. Customer will not dispute any transactions with Customer’s bank or credit card RapidScale so long as each transaction corresponds to a valid invoice. The Authorization shall remain in effect at all times during the Term and for sixty (60) days thereafter and Customer shall promptly notify RapidScale of any change to the Account Info with not less than fifteen days’ notice prior to the effective date of any change. No Payment Failure or other event will excuse Customer’s obligation to pay all amounts due under each invoice as directed by RapidScale.
    4. Automatic Payments. Unless otherwise provided in the Agreement, any account with an MRC of less than one thousand dollars ($1,000.00) will be set up for automated payments via credit card authorization form or ACH payment. For each transaction, in addition to the charge Customer has authorized, Customer’s credit card issuer and network may assess their customary transaction or handling charge, if any. If a charge is declined or reversed by the credit card issuer or network, Customer agrees to pay RapidScale a reasonable service charge and to reimburse RapidScale for all reasonable costs of collection. If Customer chooses to pay by ACH payment, Customer authorizes RapidScale or its designated agent to initiate ACH transfer entries and to credit and/or debit the account identified herein for provision of the Services or any charge associated with the Agreement. This authorization shall remain in effect unless and until RapidScale has received written notification from Customer that this authorization has been terminated in such time and manner to allow RapidScale to act.
  2. CUSTOMER OBLIGATIONS.
    1. Use of Services. As an express condition of the provision of the Services, Customer and Customer’s Users agree to comply with the Agreement and the AUP. Customer is responsible and liable for Customer’s Users and shall ensure all Users comply with the Agreement, including the AUP and the restrictions in 5(b) below. As between the Parties, Customer is responsible for responding to all third-party requests concerning Customer’s use, and Customer’s Users’ use, of the Services.

Customer shall comply with all applicable import, export and re-export control laws and regulations, including the U.S. Export Administration Regulations, the International Traffic in Arms Regulations, and the sanctions programs administered and enforced by the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (collectively, “Trade Control Laws“). This includes Customer’s responsibility to secure and pay for any export licenses or other U.S. Federal Government authorization as may be necessary in connection with Customer’s use, possession, export, re-export, or access of the Services.
    4. Government Rights. Customer shall not permit the Services to be used by or on behalf of the U.S. Federal Government without RapidScale’s prior written consent. To the extent RapidScale provides consent for the Services to be used by or on behalf of the U.S. Federal Government, they are provided solely as “commercial items,” “commercial computer software,” and/or “commercial computer software documentation” as those terms are defined in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (“FAR”) and Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (“DFARS”). Further the Services are provided or licensed to the Government with only the rights provided for in the Agreement.
    5. Responsibility for Content and Data.Customer is solely responsible (i) for Customer’s applications, content, and data that Customer or any User(s) makes available on, uses, shares and/or processes through RapidScale’s Services, and (ii) for making sure Customer’s applications, content and data comply with the Agreement and the AUP. Furthermore, Customer is solely responsible for properly handling and processing notices that are sent to Customer regarding Customer’s data or content, such as by any person claiming that Customer’s data or content violates such person’s rights, including notices pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act or access requests under applicable privacy laws. Customer will ensure that Customer’s data, and the use of Customer’s content and data in connection with the Services by Customer and Users, will not violate any applicable law. Customer will obtain and maintain any required consents necessary to permit the processing, storage and use of such content and data under the Agreement by the Services. Customer represents, warrants and covenants that such content and data will not infringe on, or contain any content or data that infringes on, or otherwise violates any copyright, patent, privacy or any other right held by a third party and that such content and/or data will not violate any applicable law, rule, regulation, or industry standard. Customer further acknowledges and agrees that Customer is solely responsible for configuring and maintaining appropriate encryption for any data that Customer transmits or processes through the Services. RapidScale does not monitor, and makes no representations regarding, the sufficiency of the encryption technologies implemented by Customer. Customer shall take the actions and implement the measures that are required for it to comply with each Privacy Law applicable to its business. If electronic personal health information (“ePHI” as defined in 45 C.F.R. § 160.103) will be (a) transmitted (b) processed, (c) stored or (d) maintained by or through the Services, then the Business Associate Agreement located at https://rapidscale.net/rapidscale-business-associate-agreement applies.

Customer shall employ physical, administrative and technical controls, screening and security safeguards necessary to securely administer, distribute and safeguard access credentials and protect against any unauthorized access. Customer is responsible for all activities that occur under Customer’s usernames, passwords or accounts and Customer agrees to notify RapidScale immediately of any unauthorized use.
    7. Third-Party Products, Services and Tools. Certain Services are provided to Customer via third parties (each a “Third-Party Resource”) and may be subject to separate third-party terms and conditions (“Third-Party Terms”). To the extent the Third-Party Terms conflict with any other provision of the Agreement, such Third-Party Terms governs Customer’s use of the applicable Third-Party Resource only. The Third-Party Terms applicable to Customer’s use of certain Services are set forth on the Third-Party Terms web page that is available at the following web address, which Third-Party Terms are incorporated herein by reference: https://rapidscale.net/third-party-terms-and-conditions. Customer acknowledges and agrees that RapidScale may use certain third-party software tools for purposes of performing some of RapidScale’s internal business processes (“Third-Party Tools”). RapidScale may allow such Third-Party Tools to access the Cloud Infrastructure, using a policy of least privilege, for the sole purpose of facilitating RapidScale’s provision of the Services and the performance of RapidScale’s internal business processes, subject to the following condition: upon termination of RapidScale’s use of such Third-Party Tools or upon termination of the Agreement, RapidScale will ensure that all access to the Cloud Infrastructure by such Third-Party Tools promptly ceases. To the extent Customer is able to opt out of RapidScale’s use of such Third-Party Tools, it is understood that Customer’s decision to do so may impact pricing and availability of the Services.
    8. RapidScale Access. Customer grants to RapidScale the right to use, access, process, and transmit, in accordance with the Agreement, Customer’s content (“Customer Content”) and Customer’s computing environment (including, without limitation, the virtual computing resources that Customer uses such as, servers, software components, networking components, storage components, bandwidth connections and Third-Party Resources) (collectively, the “Cloud Infrastructure”) for the purpose of delivering the Services. If Customer Content contains applications and third-party programs, then Customer agrees that RapidScale may allow providers of those third-party programs to access the Cloud Infrastructure and Customer Content as required for the interoperation of such applications and third-party programs with any Services. Additionally, RapidScale may, as part of its internal operations, take point-in-time snapshots of, or back up certain Customer systems and/or data on a periodic basis (“Operational Backups”). These Operational Backups are made on a snap-shot basis and capture only the information that exists on RapidScale’s internal systems at the time of the backup.  Operational Backups are typically performed in relation to maintenance activities and are not provided as part of the Services that are delivered to Customer.  RapidScale does not guarantee the availability or integrity of the Operational Backups, and RapidScale may destroy Operational Backups at any time. Operational Backups are not available to Customer or, if available, may not be useful to Customer outside of the RapidScale environment.
    9. Cooperation. The parties agree to cooperate to facilitate the performance of the Agreement. Customer shall give RapidScale true, accurate, current and complete information when establishing and using any Service. Customer shall use reasonable efforts to cause its Users to cooperate with RapidScale in matters relating to any Service. Customer shall provide RapidScale in a timely manner all permissions and access reasonably necessary for the provision of the Services, including, without limitation, Global Delegated Admin Privileges (GDAP) in Microsoft Partner Center for Microsoft Managed Services where Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365 and/or Azure Resources that are provided by RapidScale. The minimum level of access is defined per service and is subject to modification at any time upon request by RapidScale. Customer will retain sole responsibility for: (i) Customer’s operation of and control over the use of the Cloud Infrastructure, including by any User, (ii) all instructions, directions and materials provided by or on behalf of Customer relating to the Services or the Cloud Infrastructure and (iii) the approval and implementation of any recommendations made by RapidScale and the results therefrom. Customer shall provide RapidScale with a properly licensed software environment within which to provide any Services and RapidScale’ performance of the Services is contingent upon Customer’s timely performance of its responsibilities. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Agreement, RapidScale will continue to invoice Customer as provided in the Agreement (including any overages) regardless of whether access is granted to affected systems, services and / or data.
  3. Updates to the Services. RapidScale may modify, update, or discontinue the Services (including any portions or features) at any time, without liability to Customer or anyone else. However, for changes to paid Services, RapidScale will make commercially reasonable efforts to notify Customer of the modification, update, or discontinuation in advance if such modification, update, or discontinuation is expected to result in a material deterioration (i.e., reduction) in the Services. If RapidScale discontinues the Services in their entirety, RapidScale will also allow Customer a reasonable time to download Customer’s data and content, and RapidScale may provide Customer with a pro rata refund for any unused fees for any Service(s) that Customer prepaid.

  6. CONFIDENTIALITY.
    1. General. Neither Party shall, without the prior written consent of the other Party, use or disclose the Confidential Information of the other Party during the Term of the Agreement and for two (2) years following the expiration or termination hereof. As used herein, “Confidential Information” shall mean any non-public information owned or duly licensed by a Party relating to its respective business activities, products, services, financial affairs, technology, marketing, or sales plans disclosed related to the Agreement, and received by the other Party pursuant to the Agreement, including, but is not limited to, the terms and pricing of the Agreement.

Each Party will take all reasonable precautions to protect the other Party’s Confidential Information, using at least the same standard of care as it uses to maintain the confidentiality of its own Confidential Information. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a Party may disclose Confidential Information: (a) to any consultants, contractors, and counsel who have a need to know in connection with the Agreement and are contractually and/or legally subject to a duty of confidentiality, or (b) pursuant to legal process; provided that the disclosing Party shall, unless legally prohibited, provide the non-disclosing Party with reasonable prior written notice sufficient to permit it an opportunity to contest such disclosure.
    2. Due Diligence Package. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Customer may share RapidScale’s ‘Customer Due Diligence Package’ (a document which RapidScale may provide to facilitate Customer’s assessment of RapidScale’s information security, privacy, risk management, and compliance) with (i) Customer’s auditors and legal representatives that are under a duty to keep such information confidential, (ii) third parties that makes use of or accesses the Services through Customer (each an “End Customer”), and (iii) End Customer’s auditors or legal representatives that are under a duty to keep such information confidential, provided that (a) any such disclosure shall be for the sole and exclusive purpose of and to the extent necessary for Customer, End Customer or their respective auditors or legal representatives to verify RapidScale’s information security measures, privacy policy, risk management, and compliance in anticipation or the continuation of receiving the Services as a Customer or as an End Customer, (b) any such disclosure will not be to a competitor of RapidScale, (c) End Customer executes a non-disclosure agreement with Customer with terms that are at least as commensurate with the confidentiality terms set forth in this Section 11 and the Customer Due Diligence Package is included within the scope of such non-disclosure agreement, and (d) Customer remains primarily responsible to RapidScale for any unauthorized disclosure of the Customer Due Diligence Package by End Customer.

Each Party acknowledges and agrees that, due to the unique nature of Confidential Information, there may be no adequate remedy at law for any breach of its obligations hereunder, and therefore, upon any breach or any threat thereof, each Party may be entitled to appropriate equitable and injunctive relief from a court of competent jurisdiction without the necessity of proving actual loss, in addition to whatever remedies either of them might have at law or equity, subject to the terms hereof. Neither Party shall have to return or destroy any Confidential Information that resides on such Party’s system electronically as part of standard disaster recovery procedures, provided that the duty of confidentiality shall remain in effect for as long as such information resides on such Party’s systems.

If any Deliverable is not deemed a “work made for hire” by operation of law or otherwise, then upon payment of all fees due hereunder, RapidScale shall grant to Customer a license to use such Deliverable for the limited purpose which is set forth in the applicable Service Order or SOW.
    4. Grant of License. Subject to the limitations expressly enumerated by any Service Order or SOW, if any Preexisting Material is intentionally delivered to Customer as part of a Deliverable, then upon payment of all fees due hereunder, RapidScale shall grant to Customer a perpetual, limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable right to use the Preexisting Material in connection with such Deliverable only for the limited purposes set forth in the applicable Service Order or SOW.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, RapidScale will have no liability under this Section to Customer if the infringement claim arises from and would not have occurred but for any of the following: (i) combination or integration of the Service(s), or any deliverable, with equipment, devices or software not delivered by RapidScale; (ii) any modification by parties other than RapidScale; (iii) use of the Service in a manner inconsistent with designs, specifications or directions provided to Customer, in breach of the Agreement, or in violation of law; or (iv) Customer’s failure to timely implement any modifications, upgrades, patches, fixes, replacements, or enhancements made available or otherwise identified to Customer to the extent that the claim would have been avoided otherwise.

RapidScale may subcontract any portion of the Services.
  19. WAIVER. The waiver or modification by RapidScale of any term or condition hereof shall not void, waive, or modify any other term or condition. The failure by RapidScale to insist, in any one or more instances, upon the performance of any term of the Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment of such right to such performance or to future performance of such item. A waiver granted on one occasion shall not constitute a waiver of any future occasion. RapidScale can delay enforcing any of RapidScale’s rights under the Agreement without losing them.
  20. ENTIRE AGREEMENT.The Agreement (including, but not limited to, all signed and clicked-through agreements and any other Service Documents), contains the sole and entire agreement and understanding of the Parties with respect to the entire subject matter hereof, and any and all prior discussions, negotiations, commitments or understandings related hereto, if any, are hereby superseded by the terms of the Agreement.

  22. CHANNEL PARTNERS. RapidScale partners with third parties to generate customer referrals (“Channel Partners”).

In the alternative, RapidScale permits Customer to provide the Channel Partner with a copy of the Service Document.
  23. CHANGES/AMENDMENTS TO THE AGREEMENT. No amendment to the Agreement will be effective unless it is in writing and signed by the Parties. Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) Third-Party Terms may be updated at any time, with or without notice, by the applicable Third-Party Resource or RapidScale (“Third-Party Revisions”), and (ii) RapidScale may make updates to the Agreement at any time that are generally applicable to all RapidScale customers that are bound by these RapidScale Terms (“Revisions”), which shall become effective on the earlier of (a) thirty (30) days after notice is delivered to Customer or (b) the start of any Service Renewal Term or the execution of any new Service Order (the earlier of (a) or (b) being the “Opt-Out Period”) unless Customer opt out as described below. Customer understands and agrees that any change to the scope, time-table or staffing of any Professional Services engagement may increase the fees that are due pursuant to a Service Order. Customer may opt out of the Revisions by providing written notice to RapidScale via email at optout@rapidscale.net, stating that Customer are opting out of the Revisions. Customer’s written notification to RapidScale must include Customer’s company/entity name, address and account number, the name and position of the person submitting the notification on behalf of Customer, as well as a clear statement of which Revisions Customer is opting out of. Customer must submit Customer’s written notice opting out of the Revisions within the Opt-Out Period, or Customer shall be deemed to accept the Revisions. Further, Customer’s continued use and/or payment for Services after the thirty (30) day Opt-Out Period shall also be deemed acceptance of all Revisions. If Customer opt out of any Revisions, RapidScale may (i) immediately terminate the Agreement or affected Service without penalty or liability to Customer, or (ii) provide notice to Customer that the opted-out Revisions will not apply to Customer and the Agreement will then continue under the most recent contract terms for the then-current term. Until RapidScale provides notice of its election of option (i) or (ii) in the preceding sentence, the Agreement shall continue under its most recent contract terms excluding any Revisions properly opted out by Customer. This paragraph states Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy for any Revisions. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Agreement, RapidScale may make Revisions that it deems are minor or concern products or services which are not currently under contract with Customer, and such updates shall be deemed effective after the update is posted online, with or without actual notice to Customer.

The respective responsibilities of Customer and RapidScale are set forth in the responsibility matrices available at: https://view-su2.highspot.com/viewer/64949ce3219dfdc934b60e1f (the “Responsibility Matrices”). Customer understands and agrees that (a) Customer is responsible for performing the responsibilities allocated to Customer in the responsibility matrix; (b) Customer is solely responsible for establishing and maintaining a comprehensive information security program and for establishing, maintaining, updating and enforcing Customer’s security policies; (c) the Security Services serve as one component of a comprehensive information security program and RapidScale does not assume responsibility for managing such a program or for making strategic, tactical or policy decisions relating to Customer’s comprehensive information security program; (d) RapidScale does not act in the capacity of an insurer and Customer remain responsible for securing appropriate cyber-liability and similar insurance coverage suitable to Customer’s business; and (e) while the Security Services are designed to detect potentially malicious activity, it is Customer’s responsibility (and not that of RapidScale or its third party service provider) to determine whether or how to address such activity.
    4. Customer acknowledges and agrees that RapidScale does not guarantee that there will be no security breaches, incidents, problems or threats to Customer’s network or systems and that the Security Services are intended only to help identify such threats. Except in cases of RapidScale’s willful misconduct that solely and directly causes such event, RapidScale shall not be responsible for any security breach or other incident that Customer experiences. Without limiting any other provision of the Agreement, RapidScale does not warrant and expressly disclaims any warranty that the Security Services will be error free or that they will detect and/or respond to all threats or malicious activity directed at Customer, Customer’s network or Customer’s systems. Further, RapidScale takes no responsibility for any security breaches, incidents, problems or threats that occur as a result of RapidScale’s fulfillment of Customer’s instructions.
    5. RapidScale may collect and use Service Metrics for the purposes of providing, maintaining, protecting and improving the Security Services and developing new services. “Service Metrics” means any and all non-customer specific information, such as anonymized facts, figures, numbers, characters, text, observations, measurements, statistics, quantitative or qualitative attributes, failure or alert codes or other items of information that are generated, collected, derived or related to RapidScale’s performance of the Security Services, regardless of the method by which such information is memorialized or recorded, and provided that none of such data identifies or is able to identify or tie back to Customer. RapidScale may combine Service Metrics related to the Security Services with information collected from other Core Services or third parties in its sole discretion. Customer agrees that RapidScale may use the Service Metrics to: (a) carry out its obligations under the Agreement; (b) observe and report back to Customer on Customer’s usage of the Security Services and make recommendations for improved usage of the Security Services; and (c) identify trends, publish reports or otherwise use its findings in the performance of the Security Services. Customer acknowledges and agrees that RapidScale owns all right, title and interest in and to the Service Metrics, including any intellectual property rights that subsist in the Service Metrics. Customer further acknowledge that any Service Metrics provided to Customer may contain information that is designated confidential by RapidScale and that Customer shall not disclose such information other than as authorized in this Section without RapidScale’s prior written consent.
    6. In addition to and without limiting the applicability of the termination provisions set forth in the Agreement, RapidScale may terminate the Security Services upon thirty (30) days’ prior written notice (which time frame may be less than thirty (30) days as RapidScale determines in good faith to be reasonably necessary or advisable in light of the relevant circumstance) in the event of a change in applicable laws, business circumstances, or regulations that has a material adverse impact on RapidScale’s ability to provide the Security Services in a commercially reasonable manner.
  1. VCF Terms
    1. If Customer licenses VMware Cloud Foundation (“VCF”) from RapidScale, the terms of this Section 10 apply. VCF is a subscription offer that includes vSphere, Enterprise Plus, vSAN Enterprise, NSX Ent Plus (Networking Only), Aria Suite Term Enterprise, Aria Ops for Networks ENT, HCX Enterprise, SDDC Manager, Tanzu Kubernetes Grid(s), and vCenter, Server Standard and any other licenses as may be offered by Broadcom in the VCF offering from time-to-time. VCF is licensed per core with a minimum of 16 cores per CPU required. 
    2. VCF and associated licensing and add-ons are authorized for use in the United States only.  As set forth within the Service Order, licenses for VCF and associated licensing and add-ons which are identified as committed licenses (“Committed Licenses”) are for a term period of thirty-six (36) months.  Billing for Committed Licenses will either be annually in advance or monthly in arrears as indicated in the Service Order.  Any overages will automatically be usage-based and deemed “Non-Committed Licenses” and billed monthly in arrears.  Any host running a virtual machine in a given calendar month will be charged for the total cores on that host for the entire month.

      VCF Licenses are granted on a per core / per CPU basis, with a sixteen (16) core minimum per CPU for each host that is enforced.  All physical cores on a host must be licensed even if a lower number of cores is required.  Customers must be on the latest major software version minus one (N-1) for no more than six (6) months for new deployments, and for no more than twelve (12) months for existing deployments. That is, once a new major VCF software version is released, Customer is required to move to the latest major software version within six (6) months for new deployments and within twelve (12) months for existing deployments.  Customer is required to deploy consistent software versions for all deployed components of VCF. For example, VCF software version 5.1 has components vSphere version 8 and vSAN version 8. Customer is not permitted to deploy vSphere version 8 with vSAN version 7 inside a Customer Offering.

    3. Customer will provide administration access to RapidScale for one (1) single virtual machine (“VM”) on every vCenter Server environment whether in Production, Testing, Development or other.  RapidScale will install a usage meter instance to provision access, and maintain and audit licensing across each instance of vCenter Server.  RapidScale is responsible for maintaining the current version of usage meter and providing monthly reports which will begin at the end of the calendar month during which the Customer first received the license key.  Customer will provide additional access across vCenter where it is required to perform the function for licensing, support and/or auditing as necessary.  RapidScale reserves the right to audit individual customer vCenter environments.  If any discrepancies in licensing are identified, Customer shall be required to pay any underpaid licensing fees within thirty (30) days.
    4. In the event Customer requests a trial for Broadcom offerings on their own equipment, then Customer must fill out a trial license request directly with Broadcom.

SECTION C

CLOUD SERVICE TERMS

In addition to the General Terms, the terms in this Section C (the “Cloud Service Terms”) shall apply to any  Cloud Services. These Cloud Service Terms shall apply until termination of the applicable Services in accordance with the RapidScale Terms. “Cloud Services” means Services delivered on infrastructure leveraging public-cloud infrastructure, which could include, but not limited to, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Azure Cloud (Azure), and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) services, including the management of such AWS, Azure, or GCP services listed below in Section 7. Any term not otherwise defined in the Cloud Service Terms has the definition set forth in the General Terms.

  1. Cloud Infrastructure. Customer understands that the Cloud Infrastructure may be maintained by RapidScale or a designated third-party or a combination of both and in any such case, the Cloud Services may be delivered under RapidScale’ master account and RapidScale shall be entitled to set-up a subaccount on behalf of Customer therein. Where RapidScale delivers the Cloud Services under a master account established with AWS, the default model for establishing a sub-account on behalf of Customer is the Solution Provider Program Model.
  2. High-Risk Use. Customer shall not use any Cloud Services or Cloud Infrastructure for any application where a failure could result in death, serious injury, environmental damage, property damage or other material harm (examples of prohibited uses include medical life support devices, water treatment facilities, nuclear facilities, weapons systems, chemical facilities, mass transportation, aviation and flammable environments). Customer acknowledges that RapidScale makes no assurances that the Cloud Services or Cloud Infrastructure are suitable for any high-risk use. RapidScale disclaims all warranties not expressly stated in the Agreement to the maximum extent permitted by law.
  3. Responsibility and Policy Terms. In connection with engaging RapidScale to provide Cloud Services to Customer, Customer understands and agrees to be bound all of the following:

(a) to the extent that Customer uses Amazon Web Services,

(i) AWS Managed Services Responsibility Matrix documents posted at https://view-su2.highspot.com/viewer/64949ce3219dfdc934b60e1f, and

(ii) the Privacy Policy for Cloud Services found at www.Logicworks.com/legal (collectively, the “AWS Responsibility and Policy Terms”); and

(b) to the extent that Customer uses Microsoft Azure,

(i) the Azure Managed Services Responsibility Matrix posted at https://view-su2.highspot.com/viewer/64949ce3219dfdc934b60e1f, and

(ii) the Privacy Policy for Cloud Services found at www.Logicworks.com/privacy-notice (collectively, the “MSFT Responsibility and Policy Terms”).

The AWS Responsibility and Policy Terms and the MSFT Responsibility and Policy Terms form a part of this Agreement and are incorporated herein by reference. The Privacy Policy for Cloud Services shall apply to the Cloud Services.

  1. Interim Account Transfer Payments. From time-to-time, it may, as a prerequisite to receiving or discontinuing the Cloud Services, be necessary to transfer an AWS/Azure account to or from RapidScale. For the period of time that the account is “In-Flight” (i.e., the period of time commencing when the account has either (a) left an organization but has not yet entered into RapidScale’s organization or (b) has left the RapidScale organization but has not yet entered into another organization), Customer will be required to post a credit card with AWS/Azure. The credit card will be posted with AWS/Azure to pay for any AWS/Azure fees incurred by Customer’s account while the same is In-Flight.
  2. Usage and Subscription Terms for Non-Resale Customers. Where AWS/Azure Usage is not resold by RapidScale, the billing relationship for Usage remains between Customer and AWS/Azure.  The Subscription Fee set forth in the applicable Service Order will apply to all Usage regardless of whether RapidScale resells the same.  Customer agrees to provide RapidScale with (1) administrative access necessary to install or enable RapidScale’s cost management and asset inventory tooling (e.g. CloudHealth by VMware) or (2) unaltered monthly Usage data (collectively “Usage Access Requirements”).  If Customer does not provide RapidScale with the Usage Access Requirements, then RapidScale may bill Customer the Subscription Fee based on either (i) the estimated Usage set forth in an applicable Service Order or (ii) an estimate of Usage as determined by RapidScale at the time that Customer failed to provide RapidScale the Usage Access Requirements.
  3. Additional Cloud Services Terms and Conditions. The additional Cloud Services terms and conditions set forth in the addenda located at https://www.logicworks.com/msaddenda/, are each hereby incorporated into and made a part of the Agreement, as applicable to Cloud Services.
  4. List of RapidScale Cloud Services. Customer acknowledges and agrees that the list below may be updated by RapidScale from time to time.
