In addition, any Feedback received from You will be deemed to include a royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, transferable, non-exclusive right and license for Opscode to adopt, publish, reproduce, disseminate, transmit, distribute, copy, use, create derivative works, and display (in whole or in part) worldwide, or act on such Feedback without additional approval or consideration, in any form, media, or technology now known or later developed for the full term of any rights that may exist in such content, and You hereby waive any claim to the contrary.
6.1.License Fee. Customer may operate up to five (5) Nodes at no charge (a “Free License”). Customer may operate more than five (5) Nodes in exchange for a fee (the “License Fee”).

All fees payable under this Agreement are net amounts and are payable in full, without deduction for taxes or duties of any kind. All fees are non-refundable. Further, Opscode may terminate the License if Customer’s payments are overdue by more than thirty (30) days.

6.6.Taxes. Unless otherwise specified in the applicable Order Form or SOW, the fees, reimbursable expenses, compensation and other amounts payable to Opscode under this Agreement do not include any taxes, customs, duties, fees or other amounts assessed or imposed by any governmental authority. Customer will pay or reimburse Opscode for all such amounts upon demand or provide certificates or other evidence of exemption. In no event shall this apply to taxes imposed on the net income of Opscode.

The term of this Agreement (the “Term”) will take effect on the earlier of (a) the date You sign this Agreement; (b) at the moment You click “I ACCEPT” or; (c) the date You access or use the Software (the “Effective Date”).

7.5.Effect of Termination of License. Customer’s obligation to make a payment of any outstanding, unpaid fees shall survive termination of this Agreement. Upon termination or expiration of this Agreement, Customer must uninstall any installed Software, cease using all Software and destroy or return all copies of the Software to Opscode; and certify in writing that all known copies thereof, including backup copies, have been destroyed in all forms and types of media.

The provisions concerning Opscode’s proprietary rights, feedback, indemnity, disclaimers of warranty, limitation of liability, and governing law will survive the termination of this Agreement for any reason.
Delivery. Promptly after the Effective Date, Opscode will make the Software available to Customer. Software will be deemed to be delivered to Customer’s billing address unless Customer provides written notice otherwise.
Support and Maintenance Services. Unless Customer has only a Free License, Opscode will provide Customer the Support and Maintenance services listed at http://info.opscode.com/standard-and-premium-support-for-chef, at either the “Standard” or the “Premium” level, as indicated in the Order Form. If Customer has a Free License, Opscode will not provide Support and Maintenance Services pursuant to this Agreement.
9.1.Remote Support. As part of the Support and Maintenance Services, unless Customer opts-out, Opscode may have remote access to the Software that will enable it to receive data and information directly from the Software regarding Software bugs, errors, and other similar technical support issues. Opscode will only use such data and information for the purposes of providing the Support and Maintenance Services and in aggregate form for the purposes of improving the Software. If Customer elects to disable Opscode’s remote access to the Software, Opscode will not be responsible for any related delays in providing the Support and Maintenance Services.
9.2.Changes/Derivatives. Customer may make derivatives of the Software for its internal use. However, such derivatives may impact Opscode’s ability to perform maintenance and support. Opscode reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to limit or refuse to support and maintain derivatives.
9.3.Organization Management. Opscode will only take direction from Customer’s authorized Org Admin. If the Org Admin is unavailable or no longer with Customer, Opscode will change the Org Admin upon written notice from Customer. Customer acknowledges and agrees that Opscode is entitled to rely and act upon any such written notice.
9.4.Limitations. Opscode will not be responsible for correcting any errors not reproducible by Opscode on the unmodified Software or errors caused by: (a) Your failure to implement all Updates and Upgrades provided by Opscode under this Agreement; (b) changes by You to the operating system or environment which adversely affect the Software; (c) any alterations of or additions to the Software made by parties other than Opscode; (d) use of the Software in a manner for which it was not designed; (e) accident, negligence, or misuse of the Software; or (f) operation of a version of the Software older than the most current Version of the Software and the immediately preceding Version of the Software, but not any earlier Versions. A “Version” is a Major Version in the following format: Major Version.Minor Version.Patch Level.
Professional Services. Opscode will use commercially reasonable efforts to undertake and complete the Professional Services detailed in any SOW. SOWs shall set forth a description of the work to be performed, fees, time schedules and other special terms and conditions applicable to the particular project. Each SOW will become effective only upon acceptance by both parties hereto as evidenced by signature of an authorized representative of each party on the applicable SOW. Opscode will perform the Professional Services using employees, subcontractors or agents, as Opscode in its sole discretion deems appropriate. Opscode will remain responsible to Customer for the actions or its subcontractors or agents when so used.
10.1.Customer Responsibilities. Customer is responsible for the identification of any federal, state and local laws, regulations and statutes that apply to any project described under a SOW, for communicating such to Opscode, and for verifying that the proposed project meets such requirements. Customer understands its business needs and has determined independently that the Deliverables and Professional Services will meet its needs.
10.2.Intellectual Property Ownership. Should the Professional Services set forth in a SOW result in any reports, work product or other tangible items identified in a SOW as a deliverable (“Deliverables”), Customer is given, unless otherwise provided in a SOW, a worldwide, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non sub-licensable license to use the Deliverables for Customer’s internal use. Other than the limited license to the Deliverables contained herein or as otherwise set forth in a SOW, Opscode shall own and retain all right, title and interest, express or implied, in and to any Deliverables created during the course of providing the Professional Services and to all other works of authorship of any kind or nature prepared, created or conceived by Opscode in the performance of the Professional Services, exclusive of any Confidential Information of Customer incorporated therein. Opscode shall not own or have any right, title or interest in or to the Confidential Information of Customer, whether by assignment, license or otherwise.
10.3.Proprietary Items. All preexisting and separately developed (i.e., independent of this Agreement or any SOW) works of authorship, inventions (whether or not patentable), knowledge, ideas, concepts, techniques, know-how, methods, processes, systems and devices authored, created or conceived by a party and all intellectual property rights in connection therewith, including without limitation copyright, trademark, patent and trade secret rights shall remain under the ownership or control of such party.
11.1.Services Warranty. Opscode warrants to Customer for a period of sixty 60 days after Customer acceptance of Services or Deliverables or initial receipt of or access to the Software, as applicable (the “Specifications Conformity Warranty Period”) that: (a) the Services will be performed in a good and workmanlike manner; and (b) the Deliverables will perform in all material respects with the applicable specifications. Opscode’s sole obligation under the limited warranty set forth in this Section 11.1 is to use commercially reasonable efforts to correct any Services or Deliverables that do not comply with the warranties set forth in this Section (e.g., by reperformance of any noncomplying Services or modifying any noncomplying Deliverables); provided that Customer gives Opscode written notice of the noncompliance within the Specifications Conformity Warranty Period. If, after the expenditure of commercially reasonable efforts, Opscode is unable to correct the noncompliance, Opscode may choose to refund an equitable portion (e.g., based upon the value of Customer’s actual use of, or any benefits received by Customer) of the fee paid by Customer for such Deliverables or Services, whereupon the same will be deleted from the Deliverables or Services and no longer considered a part thereof.
11.2.Software Warranty. Opscode warrants that the Software will perform in all material respects as specified in its accompanying Documentation under normal use for the duration of the Specifications Conformity Warranty Period. This warranty extends only to Customer. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Customer’s exclusive remedy for a breach of this limited warranty is to return any allegedly defective Software and Opscode, at its option, will replace it or refund any fee paid for the Software, provided that Customer gives Opscode written notice of the noncompliance within the Specifications Conformity Warranty Period. Opscode’s sole obligation under the limited warranty set forth in this Section 11.2 is to use its reasonable efforts to correct or replace any non-conforming Software once Opscode has been made aware of such non-conformance or, in Opscode’s sole discretion, to terminate this Agreement (in which event, Customer will immediately stop using the Software) and refund the License Fees paid by Customer to Opscode up through the effective date of such termination.
11.3.Exclusions. The warranties under Sections 11.1 and 11.2 do not apply to any noncompliance resulting from any: (a) use not in accordance with this Agreement or any applicable SOW, including Customer operation or use of the Deliverables other than in accordance with applicable documentation or design or on hardware not recommended, supplied or approved by Opscode; (b) modification, damage, misuse or other action of Customer or any third party; or (c) combination with any goods, services or other items provided by Customer or any third party. Further, Opscode does not warrant that the Deliverables or any other items furnished by Opscode under this Agreement or any SOW are free from bugs, errors, defects or deficiencies.
11.4.Disclaimer. EXCEPT FOR THE LIMITED WARRANTY IN SECTIONS 11.1 AND 11.2 ABOVE, THE SOFTWARE, DELIVERABLES AND ANY SERVICES PROVIDED UNDER THIS AGREEMENT ARE PROVIDED “AS IS”, WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, WARRANTIES CONCERNING THE USE, INTER-OPERABILITY, OR PERFORMANCE OF THE SOFTWARE. OPSCODE DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND/OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. OPSCODE DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SOFTWARE OR DELIVERABLES WILL MEET CUSTOMER’S REQUIREMENTS OR THAT THE OPERATION THEREOF WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, OR THAT ERRORS WILL BE CORRECTED.
12.1.Indemnification by Opscode. Opscode will indemnify Customer and will pay any costs or damages that may be finally awarded in respect of any third party claims, proceedings, costs or damages, including actual attorneys’ fees and court costs and expenses in any such third party action, proceeding or case, and agreed settlements to the extent that the Software or Deliverables infringe any United States patent, or any copyright, trademark or other proprietary right of such third party; provided that: (a) Customer promptly notifies Opscode of the claim; (b) Customer gives Opscode all necessary information regarding the claim; (c) Customer reasonably cooperates with Opscode; and (d) allows Opscode to control the defense and all related settlement negotiations; provided that, if any settlement requires a non-monetary obligation of an indemnified party (other than ceasing use of the Deliverable or Software), then such settlement shall require the Customer’s prior written consent, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld.
12.2.Injunction. If an injunction is sought or obtained against Customer’s use of Deliverables or Software as a result of a third party infringement claim or in Opscode’s opinion is likely to be enjoined, Opscode may, at its sole option and expense, (a) procure for Customer the right to continue using the affected Deliverable or Software, (b) replace or modify the affected Deliverable or Software with substantially equivalent software functionality so that it does not infringe, or, if either (a) or (b) is not commercially feasible in Opscode’s opinion, (c) terminate the licenses and promptly refund Customer a pro-rata portion of any prepaid License Fees based on the remainder of the License Terms or applicable Renewal Term.
12.3.Exclusions. Opscode will have no liability for any infringement claim (a) based on modifications to the Deliverable or Software made by a party other than Opscode or third party acting on behalf of Opscode, if a claim would not have occurred but for such modifications, (b) based on the use of other than the then-current, unaltered version of the Deliverable or Software, unless the infringing portion is also in the then-current, unaltered release; (c) based on the use, operation or combination of the Deliverable or Software with non-Opscode programs, data, equipment or documentation if such infringement would have been avoided but for such use, operation or combination; (d) attributable to any Third Party Components; or (e) based on Customer’s use of the Deliverable or Software other than in accordance with this Agreement or the applicable Documentation.
12.4.Sole Remedy. THE TERMS OF THIS SECTION CONSTITUTE THE ENTIRE LIABILITY OF OPSCODE, AND CUSTOMER’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY WITH RESPECT TO ANY THIRD PARTY CLAIMS OF INFRINGEMENT OR MISAPPROPRIATION OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OF ANY KIND.
12.5.Indemnification by Customer. You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Opscode and affiliates and all of their respective employees, agents, directors, officers, shareholders, attorneys, successors, and assigns from and against any and all claims, proceedings, damages, injuries, liabilities, losses, costs, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and litigation expenses) relating to or arising from any breach by You of this Agreement.
Limitation of Liability.
13.1.Indirect Damages. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL OPSCODE, ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSORS, OR THEIR RESPECTIVE OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, CONTRACTORS OR AGENTS (COLLECTIVELY, THE “OPSCODE PARTIES”) BE LIABLE TO CUSTOMER OR TO ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES OR FOR THE COST OF PROCURING SUBSTITUTE PRODUCTS OR SERVICES ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY RELATING TO OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SOFTWARE, DOCUMENTATION, DELIVERABLES OR THE SERVICES PROVIDED BY OPSCODE HEREUNDER INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES OR OTHER LOSSES FOR LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF BUSINESS, LOSS OF GOODWILL, WORK STOPPAGE, LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA, COMPUTER FAILURE OR ANY AND ALL OTHER COMMERCIAL DAMAGES OR LOSSES EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY THEREOF AND REGARDLESS OF THE LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY (CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE) UPON WHICH THE CLAIM IS BASED.
13.2.Aggregate Liability. IN NO EVENT WILL THE OPSCODE PARTIES’ AGGREGATE LIABILITY FOR DIRECT DAMAGES, FROM ALL CAUSES OF ACTION AND UNDER ALL THEORIES OF LIABILITY, EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNTS PAID BY CUSTOMER TO OPSCODE UNDER THIS AGREEMENT DURING THE THREE (3) MONTH PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE ARISING OF A CLAIM.
13.3.General. THESE LIMITATIONS APPLY EVEN IF THIS SECTION 13 IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. SOME JURISDICTIONS MAY NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR OTHER DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY. IN SUCH EVENT, THE LIABILITY OF THE OPSCODE PARTIES WILL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
Confidentiality. Customer and Opscode will maintain the confidentiality of Confidential Information. The receiving party of any Confidential Information of the other party agrees not to use such Confidential Information for any purpose except as necessary to fulfill its obligations and exercise its rights under this Agreement. The receiving party shall protect the secrecy of and prevent disclosure and unauthorized use of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information using the same degree of care that it takes to protect its own confidential information and in no event shall use less than reasonable care. The terms of this Confidentiality Section shall survive termination of this Agreement. Upon termination or expiration of this Agreement, the receiving party will, at the disclosing party’s option, promptly return or destroy (and provide written certification of such destruction) the disclosing party’s Confidential Information.
Data Security. Opscode will maintain appropriate administrative, physical, and technical safeguards for protection of the security, confidentiality and integrity of Customer Data. Opscode will not (i) modify Customer Data; (ii) disclose Customer Data except as compelled by law or as expressly permitted in writing by Customer; or (iii) access Customer Data except to provide the services and prevent or address service or technical problems, or at Customer’s request in connection with Customer support matters. The Parties further acknowledge that Opscode will not actively Process Customer Personal Data as part of the Services. The Customer will use commercially reasonable efforts to restrict Opscode’s access to Customer Personal Data to those types of access that are unavoidable as incidental to the Services. If Opscode knowingly receives Customer Personal Data from the Customer that is not required as a necessary incident to the performance of the Services, Opscode shall give notice to the Customer, and the Customer shall give prompt direction to Opscode regarding the destruction or return of such data. Opscode shall maintain procedures to promptly notify Customer in the event of loss, misuse, or unauthorized acquisition of Customer Personal Data where such events come to Opscode’s attention. Upon the termination of this Agreement, Opscode will return or destroy all Customer Personal Data accessed and/or processed. “Customer Personal Data” means data owned or controlled by Customer that Opscode may have access to during the provision of the Services and which names or identifies a natural person such as: (a) data that is explicitly defined as a regulated category of data under applicable Data Privacy Laws; (b) non-public personal data, such as national identification number, passport number, social security number, driver’s license number; (c) health or medical information, such as insurance information, medical prognosis, diagnosis information or genetic information; (d) financial information, such as a policy number, credit card number and/or bank account number; and/or (e) sensitive personal data, such as mother’s maiden name, race, religion, marital status, disability, or sexuality.
Node Compliance Reports. If and when Customer adds additional Nodes to its License, Customer will pay to Opscode the License Fees for such additional Nodes at the then-current price. Upon Opscode’s request (such request not to be made more than twice during any 12 month period without good cause), Customer agrees to promptly deliver to Opscode (a) any usage files and reports generated by the Software to permit Opscode to verify the number of Nodes actually used by Customer during the applicable License Term; and/or (b) a certification signed by one of Customer’s officers regarding the number of Nodes actually used by Customer during the applicable License Term. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Customer agrees to reasonably cooperate with Opscode to verify the number of Nodes actually used by Customer during the applicable License Term. If Opscode confirms that Customer has exceeded the number of Nodes for the applicable License Term, in addition to any other remedies available under this Agreement or applicable law, Customer agrees to pay to Opscode the then-current License Fees for the additional Nodes used by Customer.
Export Compliance. As required by the laws of the United States and other countries, Customer represents and warrants that Customer: (a) understands that the Software and its components may be subject to export controls under the U.S. Commerce Department’s Export Administration Regulations (“EAR”); (b) is not located in a prohibited destination country under the EAR or U.S. sanctions regulations; (c) will not export, re-export, or transfer the Software to any prohibited destination or persons or entities on the U.S. Bureau of Industry and Security Denied Parties List or Entity List, or the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons, or any similar lists maintained by other countries, without the necessary export license(s) or authorization(s); (d) will not use or transfer the Software in connection with any nuclear, chemical or biological weapons, missile technology, or military end-uses where prohibited by an applicable arms embargo, unless authorized by the relevant government agency by regulation or specific license; (e) understands and agrees that if Customer is in the United States and exports or transfers the Software to eligible end users, Customer will, to the extent required by EAR Section 740.17(e), submit semi-annual reports to the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security, which include the name and address (including country) of each transferee; and (f) understands that countries including the United States may restrict the import, use, or export of encryption products (which may include the Software and the components) and agrees that Customer shall be solely responsible for compliance with any such import, use, or export restrictions.
18.1.Customer will comply with all applicable local, state, national, and international laws and regulations with respect to Customer’s use of the Software and Services. Customer further agrees that its purchase under this Agreement is neither contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or features nor dependent on any oral or written public comments made by Opscode regarding future functionality or features. Customer will (a) be responsible for compliance with this Agreement; (b) be responsible for the accuracy, quality and legality of Customer Data and the means by which Customer acquired Customer Data; and (c) use commercially reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorized access to or use of the Software; and notify Opscode promptly of any such unauthorized access or use.
18.2.Customer will not transmit or disclose any protected health information (as that term is used in HIPAA) or any nonpublic personal information (as that term is used in the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act) to Opscode.
18.3.By downloading, accessing, or using the Software, Customer represents that it is at least the legal age of majority and will, at all times, will provide true, accurate, current, and complete information when submitting information or materials to Opscode.
U.S. Government. The Software is “Commercial Computer Software” as defined under FAR 252.227-7014. If Customer is subject to the Defense Federal Acquisition Resolutions (DFAR), the Software and Documentation are licensed pursuant to Opscode’s standard commercial license according to DFARS 227.7202. For all other government entities, use, duplication, or disclosure of the Software and Documentation by the U.S. Government is subject to restrictions set forth in subparagraph (b)(2) of 48 CFR 52.227-19, as applicable.
General. Neither party shall be liable for any delay or failure in performance (except for any payment obligations) due to causes beyond its reasonable control. Neither party may assign this Agreement except upon the advance written consent of the other party, except that either party may assign this Agreement in connection with a merger, reorganization, acquisition or other transfer of all or substantially all of such party’s voting securities or the assets governed by this Agreement; provided, that: (a) the assignor or assignee provides reasonably prompt written notice of such assignment to the non-assigning party; and (b) the assignee is capable of fully performing the obligations of the assignor under the Agreement. Any attempt to assign this Agreement, without such consent, will be null and of no effect. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will bind and inure to the benefit of each party’s successors and permitted assigns. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of this Agreement invalid or unenforceable, that provision of the Agreement will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect. The failure by either party to enforce any provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that or any other provision. All waivers must be in writing and signed by both parties. All notices permitted or required under this Agreement shall be in writing and shall be delivered in person, by confirmed facsimile, overnight courier service or mailed by first class, registered or certified mail, postage prepaid. Such notice shall be deemed to have been given upon receipt. This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of Washington, U.S.A., excluding its conflicts of law rules.
