THE LIMITATIONS, EXCLUSIONS, AND DISCLAIMERS SET OUT IN THIS AGREEMENT SHALL APPLY: (I) WHETHER AN ACTION, CLAIM OR DEMAND ARISES FROM A BREACH OF WARRANTY OR CONDITION, BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), INDEMNITY STRICT LIABILITY, STATUTORY LIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY; (II) WHETHER OR NOT SUCH DAMAGES COULD REASONABLY BE FORESEEN OR THEIR POSSIBILITY HAS BEEN DISCLOSED TO STRAPI; AND (III) TO STRAPI, ITS AFFILIATES, AND THEIR RESPECTIVE LICENSORS, SUPPLIERS, REPRESENTATIVES, SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS.
Strapi respects the Intellectual Property Rights of others. The Customer is solely responsible for the legality of Customer Content. Strapi has no duties of care, protection or warning in this respect. Therefore, the Customer guarantees to have all corresponding rights to Customer Content processed, stored and/or used by Customer on Strapi infrastructure in connection with its access or use of the Solution. If a third party copyright owner, or a person authorized on behalf of one, believes that the copyrighted work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement that is taking place through the Solution and submits a notice to Customer or Strapi, Strapi may act as necessary to avoid legal liability, including remove access to such content. Customer agrees to notify Strapi of any such notice that it may receive from a third party regarding Customer Content which is hosted on Strapi infrastructure. Such notification should be sent to the attention of “Copyright Infringement” to firstname.lastname@example.org and any such notices must include a detailed description of the alleged infringement identified by the third party.
Customer, on its own behalf and on behalf of its Users, authorizes Strapi (and its Representatives) to collect and analyze data, metrics and other information relating to the provision, use, consumption, security, integrity, and performance of various aspects of the Solution, Strapi systems and interactions and interoperability between the Solution and Strapi Systems with other technologies or Third Party Materials (collectively “Usage Data”). For clarity, Usage Data shall not be deemed Customer Content or Customer Confidential Information. Strapi (and Strapi Representatives acting on behalf of Strapi and Strapi successors and permitted assigns) will be free to: (a) use such Usage Data for any internal lawful business purpose including to verify compliance with Subscription Parameters and restrictions, to develop, improve and enhance the Solution, to improve interoperability, to develop, enhance, diagnose, correct or improve its offerings, to create reports, summaries, and other materials, and (b) disclose such Usage Data to others, provided such Usage Data is in an “Aggregated and Anonymized Form”. The term “Aggregated and Anonymized Form” means the data has been collected from multiple sources and compiled in a way that does not identify, and is not capable of identifying, Customer, Users, or any individual or entity associated with Customer, including as the source of such Usage Data. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Usage Data may be disclosed in a non-Aggregated but Anonymized Form to Strapi's Representatives subject to the restrictions stated herein and/or to any advisors, investors, lawyers, and accountants as part of a legal proceeding or as necessary to defend Strapi or its Representatives rights or enforce this Agreement.
Notwithstanding anything else herein, to the extent Software delivered by Strapi accesses, makes available, integrates with, delivers or interacts with any third-party open source libraries/components/applications/user interface/utilities (collectively referred to as “Third Party Open Source”) and to the extent required by the relevant licensor, such Third Party Open Source shall be subject to the relevant Third Party Open Source proprietary notices, disclaimers, requirements and/or extended rights which are relevant to the relevant Third Party Open Source and identified to the User via the Cloud Dashboard (or otherwise upon request). Strapi confirms that if Third Party Open Source is made part of the Solution delivered hereunder, such Third Party Open Source shall not be subject to terms which create, or purport to create, an obligation that Customer grant to any third party any rights to, or immunities under, any of Customer’s Intellectual Property Rights, or that Customer disclose or make any of its own proprietary code (or any part or derivative work thereof) available to third parties under any circumstances.
The Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the California, USA and the courts of San Francisco, County in California shall have exclusive jurisdiction, excluding specifically any conflicts of laws provisions, the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act (UCITA). Except as expressly provided herein, each Party irrevocably consents and submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts as specified and waives any objection thereto on the grounds of venue, forum non-conveniens or any similar grounds and irrevocably consents to service of process by mail or in any other manner permitted by applicable law.
Any notice, request, demand or other communication required or permitted under this Agreement shall be in writing and delivered by registered mail or courier, effective on the date of receipt, addressed as follows: if to Customer, at the billing address provided in the billing section of Customer’s Strapi Cloud account, and, if to Strapi, Attention: Strapi Legal, addressed to Strapi, Inc, 3500 S Dupont Hwy Dover, DE 19901, USA. A Party may from time to time change its address for notice by notice in writing to the other Party delivered hereunder. In addition, Strapi may at its option deliver the foregoing notice or other communication to an e-mail address provided by Customer to Strapi, which shall be effective and deemed delivered when transmitted, and if Customer has provided Strapi with no such address, notice may be duly given when prominently posted on https://strapi.io/cloud-legal.
Any dispute, claim or controversy (collectively “Claims”) arising out of or relating to this Agreement, including the determination of the scope, applicability or adjudicative process associated with this Agreement, shall be submitted to and determined by arbitration in the county of San Francisco, California, U.S.A. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures. For Claims of five million United States dollars ($5,000,000), or less, the arbitration shall be administered pursuant to JAMS' Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. Any judgment awarded by JAMS may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, the Parties agree that a material breach of this Agreement which adversely affects Confidential Information disclosed in connection with this Agreement and/or any Intellectual Property Rights in the Solution (or any component thereof) shall cause irreparable injury for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy and the non-breaching Party shall be entitled to equitable relief in any court of competent jurisdiction (without a requirement to post a bond) in addition to any remedies it may have hereunder or at law.
Headings are inserted herein for convenience only and are not to be used in the interpretation of this Agreement. As used herein: (i) "days" means calendar days; (ii) “include” and “including” are not limiting; and (iii) use of the Solution shall be deemed to include active or inactive use. This Agreement, any disputes or claims raised hereunder, and all services to be provided hereunder by Strapi to Customer (if any) shall be conducted and provided in the English language. Where Customer's primary address is in Quebec or France, it is the express will of the Parties that this Agreement and all related documents be drawn up in English. C'est la volonté expresse des Parties que la présente convention ainsi que les documents qui s'y rattachent soient rédigés en anglais.
The Parties are independent contractors for all purposes under this Agreement, and neither Party shall be deemed an employee, partner, or agent of the other. Each party shall be solely responsible for all obligations and payments due with respect to its Representative, including any wages, salaries, and amounts due or payable to its Representative in connection with this Agreement. This Agreement shall not establish any relationship of partnership, joint venture, employment, franchise, or agency between the Parties.
A Party shall not be liable for its failure or delay in the performance of its obligations under the Agreement (except for payment of fees) if such failure results from circumstances beyond its reasonable control, including but not limited to supplier strikes, lock-outs, labor disputes or availability, third party acts, war, riot, civil disorder, acts of terrorism, curtailment of transportation, work stoppages, pandemic, compliance with any law or governmental order, prohibition, rule, regulation or direction not in force on the date the Agreement commences. (“Force Majeure Event”). If a Force Majeure Event continues to cause failure or delay in performance of a Party’s obligations for more than thirty (30) days, the affected Party shall have the right to terminate, without liability, to the other.
Customer agrees that the Solution may include cryptographic technology, data or other information and shall not be received, exported, imported, used, transferred, distributed, accessed, or re-exported except in compliance with the applicable laws and regulations of the relevant government authorities, including U.S. export control and sanction regulations. Customer also represents and covenants: (i) not to, directly or indirectly, allow access to or use of the Solution in embargoed or sanctioned countries/regions, by sanctioned or denied persons, or for prohibited end-uses under applicable law; and (ii) that Customer shall ensure that its receipt and use of and/or access to the Solution, or that of its Users, is in accordance with the restrictions in this subsection. If any part of the Solution is being licensed by the U.S. government, including any U.S. federal agency, the Solution is considered access to commercial computer software and documentation developed exclusively at private expense and the Solution is provided as a “commercial item” as that term is defined in FAR 2.101 (and as it is defined and used in all corresponding agency-specific Federal Acquisition Regulation supplements) and is provided with only those rights specified in section 2.
This Agreement may not be wholly assigned or transferred without the other Party’s prior written consent, provided each party expressly reserves the right to assign this Agreement to a successor in interest of all or substantially all of its business or assets. Any action or conduct in violation of the foregoing shall be void and without effect. All validly assigned rights and obligations of the parties hereunder shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by and against the successors and permitted assigns.
Notwithstanding anything else herein, Strapi may delegate (including by way of subcontract) any of its obligations hereunder to its Representatives, provided Strapi shall be solely and fully liable and responsible for its Representatives' compliance with the relevant terms and conditions of this Agreement with respect to any such delegation.
The provisions of this Agreement are for the benefit of Customer and Strapi (as the case may be) and not for any other person or entity, whether under statute or otherwise. There are no third party beneficiaries intended hereunder. Only Strapi and the Customer may bring legal action against the other Party hereunder.
From time-to-time, Strapi lists and/or mentions its customers in its marketing and communications initiatives. Customer agrees that Strapi may use Customer’s name and logo, for such purpose. In addition, subject to applicable privacy law and Strapi’s Privacy Notice, Customer expressly consents to Strapi contacting Customer for marketing or promotional purposes. Such right may be revoked by you by providing written instruction to email@example.com, which notice shall specify the particular marks, names, and/or logos of other assets that you require Strapi to cease displaying on physical or digital marketing materials.
The waiver by either Party of any right provided under this Agreement must be in writing signed by such Party and any waiver shall not constitute a subsequent or continuing waiver of such right or of any other right under this Agreement.
If any section, provision, or part thereof of this Agreement is held to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent authority in any jurisdiction, that section, provision or part shall be limited if possible and only thereafter severed to the extent necessary to render this Agreement valid and enforceable in such jurisdiction.
Unless a separate signed written Agreement has been executed between the Parties and referenced in the Order, this Agreement is the complete agreement between the Parties concerning the subject matter hereof and supersedes any prior agreements and understandings between the Parties applicable to the Solution, Support and Maintenance Services or Professional Services delivered by or on behalf of Strapi. This Agreement prevails over any pre-printed terms or other conflicting or additional terms of any purchase order, acknowledgment, confirmation, or other ordering document issued by Customer or an Authorized Reseller, even if signed and returned. For clarity, where Strapi and Customer have entered into a separate signed written agreement that is referenced in the Order provided by Customer for signature, then such terms shall prevail and override these terms, in all other circumstances these terms shall apply. Except to the extent expressly precluded by applicable law, Strapi reserves the right, at Strapi’s sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time. If a revision is material we will try to provide at least 30 days' notice prior to any new terms taking effect. What constitutes a material change will be determined at our sole discretion. Notwithstanding any notice requirements herein, Strapi may notify Customer of the change by a reasonable means of notice, including email to User account(s) or if no valid email is available, by posting the revised Agreement to the Cloud Dashboard. Customer agrees that its continued access or use of the Solution after the written notice and changes become effective shall constitute Customer’s acceptance of the revised Agreement. Unless otherwise specifically set out in the relevant document, in the event of a conflict between these terms and conditions and the Support Policy, Statement of Work, or Order, these terms and conditions shall prevail.
The Parties acknowledge and agree that Strapi has set its prices and entered into this Agreement in reliance upon the disclaimers of warranty and the limitations of liability agreed to herein, that the same reflect an allocation of risk between the parties (including the risk that a contract remedy may fail of its essential purpose and cause consequential loss), and that the same form an essential basis of the bargain between the parties.
Upon written notice, We may audit your compliance with the terms of this Agreement and your Order. You agree to cooperate with Our audit and to provide reasonable assistance and access to information. Any such audit shall not unreasonably interfere with Your normal business operations. In addition to the foregoing, the Services include a self-audit function and any usage in excess of your subscription allotment will result in the imposition of additional fees, which You shall be obligated to pay as if they were included in Your Order.
