2. PROVISION OF SERVICES.
2.1 Provisioning of Cloud Services.
During the Subscription Term and subject to the terms and conditions of this EULA and each Order Form (including Customer’s or Channel Partner’s obligation to pay all applicable Fees when due), OutThink will: (a) make the Cloud Services available to Authorised Users for use in connection with Customer’s internal business operations on a subscription basis; and (b) maintain and support the Cloud Services pursuant to OutThink’s standard Support terms and conditions. OutThink will also provide the OutThink Products that power the Cloud Services. OutThink may modify the Cloud Services from time to time and will, except with respect to OutThink-Provided Third Party Technology, endeavour to ensure that any such modification does not materially diminish the core functionality, performance, security, or stability of the Cloud Services overall during an applicable Subscription Term. Except as otherwise expressly set forth in the Order Form for certain Cloud Services offerings (e.g., a private cloud hosted at Customer’s owned or managed facility), Customer acknowledges and agrees that OutThink has no delivery obligation for OutThink Products and will not ship copies of such products to Customer as part of the Services. In addition, as is customary with cloud services offerings, Customer is required to accept all patches, bug fixes, updates, maintenance, and service packs (collectively, “Patches”) necessary for the proper function and security of the Cloud Services and OutThink Products. Unless otherwise agreed upon by the parties, all applicable product, order, customer, or other information related to the Cloud Services and OutThink Products will be communicated electronically using OutThink’s standard formats and in conformity with the User Documentation.
2.2 Customer-Provided Technology.
(i) Provision and Access. To enable OutThink to provide the Services, Customer, on behalf of itself and Authorised Users, grants OutThink and its agents the unrestricted, non-fee-bearing right to: (a) use, process, store, and transmit Customer-Provided Technology over public networks in various media worldwide, for the duration of the Subscription Term plus any additional post-termination period during which OutThink provides Customer access to the Cloud Services to retrieve an export file of such Customer-Provided Technology; (b) make such modifications to the Customer-Provided Technology as are necessary to conform and adapt such Customer-Provided Technology to the technical requirements of connecting networks, devices, services or media associated with the Services; and (c) allow third party Customer-Provided Technology providers to access the Cloud Services, including applicable Customer-Provided Technology, as required for the interoperation of such Customer-Provided Technology with the Cloud Services and/or to confirm Customer’s compliance with the applicable licensing terms and conditions under which the Customer-Provided Technology is provided to Customer. Customer is responsible for obtaining, at Customer’s sole expense, any rights and consents from third parties (including Authorised Users) necessary for the Customer-Provided Technology, User Data, and other products and services that Customer uses with the Services. Customer represents and warrants that it has the right and authority to provide the Customer-Provided Technology to OutThink, and that OutThink has the right and authority to access and use the Customer-Provided Technology to provide the Services and for the other purposes described in and contemplated by this EULA.
(ii) Use. OutThink will not be responsible for any use, disclosure, modification or deletion of such Customer-Provided Technology resulting from any such access by third party program providers or for the accessibility or interoperability of such third party programs in or with the Cloud Services or OutThink Products. For greater certainty, the modification of such Customer-Provided Technology by OutThink is limited to such technical modification as is required to allow such Customer-Provided Technology to be used and accessed through the Cloud Services, and will not modify any Customer trademarks, trade names, logos and notices, or any Customer product images or descriptions.
(iii) Issue Resolution. Customer will promptly handle and resolve any claims relating to the Customer-Provided Technology, including any notice sent to Customer claiming that any Customer-Provided Technology violates any rights; (c) maintain appropriate security, protection and backup copies of the Customer-Provided Technology; (d) immediately notify OutThink of any unauthorised access, use or disclosure of (i) any Customer-Provided Technology if in OutThink’s possession, or (ii) any User Account, in each case that comes to Customer’s attention; and (e) provide OutThink with such reasonable cooperation and assistance related to any investigation and remediation of such unauthorized access, use or disclosure as OutThink may reasonably request.
2.3 How OutThink May Use Customer’s Personal Information. Under data protection legislation, OutThink is required to provide Customer with certain information about who it is, how it processes the personal data of those individuals who use the Cloud Services and for what purposes and those individuals’ rights in relation to their personal data and how to exercise them. This information is provided in https://outthink.io/privacy-policy/ and Customer must read this information.
2.4 Data Aggregation. OutThink may compile statistical and other information related to the performance, operation, and use of the Services, and use such information for security and operations management, to create statistical analyses, and for research, development, and reporting purposes. Customer acknowledges and agrees that OutThink may freely use the User Data (for greater certainty, excluding any Personal Data) on a generic, anonymised, aggregate basis along with OutThink’s use of similar data from OutThink’s other customers, such that there is no way to identify Customer as the source of User Data (such generic, anonymised, aggregate data, the “Aggregated Data”), for any purpose relating to OutThink’s business, including: (a) to analyse, calibrate, and improve the performance and usability of the Cloud Services and OutThink Products, (b) to develop unique products and services, and (c) for general industry analysis and reporting. Except as otherwise stated in this EULA, OutThink will not modify, disclose, or access non-aggregated User Data except as required by law.
2.5 Security. OutThink will employ and maintain industry standard: (a) administrative, physical and technical safeguards in accordance with OutThink’s standard security policies, procedures, and controls as amended from time to time, a current copy of which will be made available to Customer upon request and designed to protect against the destruction, loss, alteration or unauthorised access, use or disclosure of User Data, and (b) technologies designed to prevent the Cloud Services from containing any Virus. OutThink’s Data Processing Agreement (the “DPA”) in effect as of the Effective Date describes the parties’ respective roles for the processing of Personal Data that Customer and Authorised Users provide to OutThink as part of the Services. OutThink will act as a data processor and will act on Customer’s reasonable instruction concerning the treatment of Personal Data residing in Customer’s designated Cloud Services environment, as specified in this EULA, and the applicable Order Form. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Customer: (i) will ensure that User Data will not include any sensitive or special data that imposes specific data security or data protection obligations on OutThink in addition to or different from those described herein (or the DPA); (ii) agrees to provide any notices and obtain any consents related to Customer’s use of the Services and OutThink’s provision of the Services to Customer, including those related to the collection, use, processing, transfer and disclosure of Customer-Provided Technology (including Personal Data); and (iii) acknowledges that, in light of OutThink’s ISO 27001 certification, and given the nature of cloud-based multi-tenant services, it is infeasible for OutThink to accommodate conflicting data security requirements from multiple OutThink customers, so failure to accommodate any Customer data security, technical, or operational request will not be deemed a breach of this EULA and OutThink will have no liability therefor.
2.6. Access Rights Granted to Customer.
(i) Cloud Services. During the Subscription Term and subject to the terms and conditions of this EULA and each Order Form (including Customer’s or Channel Partner’s obligation to pay all Fees hereunder when due), OutThink grants Customer a limited, non-exclusive, non-assignable, non-sublicensable, royalty-free, worldwide right during the relevant Subscription Term for Customer and its Authorised Users to access and use the Cloud Services and associated OutThink Products (via the Cloud Services) as made available by OutThink, solely for Customer’s internal business purposes and not, for clarity, for resale or use in a timesharing or service-bureau environment. Customer is responsible for all Authorised User’s compliance with this EULA, such that any act or omission by an Authorised User that is inconsistent with this EULA will be attributable to Customer.
(ii) OutThink-Provided Third Party Technology. As part of the Cloud Services, OutThink may provide Customer with access to OutThink-Provided Third Party Technology. For clarity, the owner, author, or provider of such technology retains all ownership and intellectual property rights therein, and Customer’s rights to use the same are subject to, and governed by, the terms applicable to such technology.
2.7 Access Conditions.
(i) Technical Requirements. To access and use the OutThink Products, Customer must ensure that each Authorised User has access to an internet connection and otherwise meets the minimum technical requirements set out in the Documentation.
(ii) Authorised User Accounts. Customer will access and manage the OutThink Products by means of user accounts which are assigned to each Authorised User (each, a “User Account”).

Customer will ensure that it assigns appropriate passwords to each such User Account and will keep such passwords secure. Customer will, and will cause the Authorised Users, to: (i) notify OutThink immediately of any unauthorised use of any password or User Account or any other known or suspected breach of security; and (ii) not impersonate another person or provide false identity information to gain access to or use the Cloud Services or OutThink Products. Without limitation, OutThink may immediately remove or suspend any User Account affected by the activities described in the foregoing clauses (i) or (ii).

(iii) Scope of Use. The Cloud Services may be accessed by Authorised Users only in accordance with their User Account specified on an Order Form. Neither Customer nor any Authorised User acquires any right or license to use the Services, including the OutThink Products, in excess of the scope and/or duration of the Services stated in the applicable Order Form. At the end of the applicable Subscription Term, Customer’s and all Authorized Users’ right to access and use the Services will terminate.

(x) remove or modify any program markings or any notice of OutThink’s or its licensors’ proprietary rights.
In addition to any other rights afforded to OutThink under this EULA, OutThink reserves the right, but has no obligation, to take remedial action if any material violates the foregoing restrictions, including the removal or disablement of access to such material. OutThink shall have no liability if OutThink takes such action. Customer will have sole responsibility for the accuracy, quality, integrity, legality, reliability, appropriateness, and ownership of all of Customer-Provided Technology.
2.9 Data Centre Region. If the Order Form specifies the Data Centre Region in which the Cloud Services will be provided, such region is where Customer’s Cloud Services environment will be provided and supported; otherwise, OutThink may select a Data Centre Region in its sole discretion provided that such selection complies with the data processing agreement between the parties. OutThink and its Affiliates may perform aspects of Cloud Services, such as service administration and support, as well as other Services (including disaster recovery), from locations and/or through the use of subcontractors, worldwide.
2.10 Warranty Offered in Lieu of Acceptance. The Services are deemed irrevocably accepted upon delivery and/or performance. However, the foregoing does not affect or limit OutThink’s warranty obligations (or Customer’s rights relating thereto), as and to the extent set forth in Section 7 (“Warranty; Disclaimer”).
2.11 Trial Subscriptions. If Customer or Channel Partner receives free access or a trial, evaluation, or similar subscription to any of the Cloud Services (a “Trial Subscription”), they may use the Cloud Service(s) in accordance with the terms and conditions of this EULA (except as otherwise set forth below) for the period designated in the Order Form or otherwise by OutThink (and if not designated, then for thirty (30) days) (the “Trial Period”). Trial Subscriptions are permitted solely for Customer’s use to determine whether to purchase a full subscription to the Services. Customer or Channel Partner may not use a Trial Subscription for any other purposes. At the end of the Trial Period, the Trial Subscription will expire, and all Customer-Provided Technology and User Data will be permanently deleted, unless Customer purchases a paid subscription to a Cloud Service (provided that the paid subscription is for the same Cloud Service that was provided as part of the Trial Subscription). If Customer purchases a full subscription, all of the terms and conditions in this EULA will apply to such purchase and the use of the Cloud Service. Each party has the right to terminate a Trial Subscription at any time. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING IN THIS EULA TO THE CONTRARY, OUTTHINK WILL HAVE NO WARRANTY, INDEMNITY, SUPPORT, OR OTHER OBLIGATIONS WITH RESPECT TO TRIAL SUBSCRIPTIONS (WHICH, FOR CLARITY, ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “WITH ALL FAULTS”).
