Nuvla Apps Standard End-User License Agreement


Please carefully read the following terms and conditions of this Standard End-User License Agreement (EULA) before using, downloading and installing any application (Application) and user guides, and online or electronic materials (Documentation) on the Nuvla website, a business-to-business (B2B) digital platform for containerised applications operated by SixSq SA (Platform). This EULA is a legal agreement between the person or entity described as the provider of the application on the Platform (Vendor) and the person or entity using, installing, accessing and/or purchasing the Application (Customer or you).

By clicking “accept” during the Nuvla Platform launch process, or by installing and/or using the Application, you are agreeing to be bound by this EULA from the date of such action (Effective Date). If you register for a free trial of the Platform, this EULA will also govern that trial. If you do not accept this EULA, then you must not use the Application.

Please note SixSq provided this EULA to facilitate contracting between Vendors and Customers. Vendors and Customers acknowledge that (1) SixSq is not a party to this EULA; (2) SixSq is not responsible for any of the relevant parties’ actions, obligations or liabilities under this EULA; (3) the EULA is provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis without warranty of any kind from SixSq; and (4) the parties’ use of this EULA is at their own risk.

1. The Application

1.1 Use of the Application. To use, access or deploy the Application, the Customer must create an account on the Platform. Customers are responsible for (a) keeping their account safe; (b) all account activities; and (c) any other actions connected with their account. Vendors are not responsible for unauthorised access to Customer’s account. Customer will immediately notify Vendor if it believes there has been unauthorised access to or use of such Customer’s account or account information.

1.2 Vendor Support. Vendors are solely responsible for any support required by the Customer in relation to the Applications, and for any information provided to their Customers. All support requests should be made directly to the Vendor by the Customer. SixSq may provide Vendors with support description and examples, but SixSq does not provide any support for the Applications provided by Vendors. If the Vendor provides Application support this will be reference on the Platform and such support will be provided in accordance with Vendor’s applicable support policy and business hours. Note that not all Applications listed on the Platform include support.

1.3 Service Level Agreement. If the Vendor provides a service level agreement (SLA) for the Application this will be specified on the Platform. Vendor will provide the service in accordance with its applicable SLA, and inform the Customer accordingly. Note that not all Application listed on the Platform includes a SLA.

2. License

2.1 License. Vendor hereby grants the Customer a personal, non-transferable, non-exclusive licence to use the Application on their devices on the Platform, in accordance with this EULA. No license of the Application’s source code is given hereunder. If you breach this EULA, Vendor may immediately and without notice to you terminate this EULA and any associated licenses and your right to use the Application is terminated immediately. In such cases, the Vendor might request the Platform operator (SixSq) to terminate the Customer’s account, or limit its access to the Platform.

2.2 Use. You are permitted to deploy the Application (for example on an edge device, IoT device, server, PC, or cloud infrastructure) under your control. You are responsible for ensuring your device meets the minimum requirements of the Application.

2.3 Coupons and free trials. You may be offered coupons, credits, free trials or free versions to enable access to the Application. However, the Vendor reserves the right at any time to cancel, modify or charge the conditions of such coupons or credits, and to cancel, modify or charge for further use of the Application under free trial or free versions options. Please note the functionality of the Application may be limited during such periods.

3. Customer Obligations

3.1 Payment. The Customer shall pay for the Application as described on the Application page on the Platform. All payments must be made by the Customer via the Platform.

Customer will not, and will not allow any third party to: (a) use the Application in violation of laws or regulations; (b) copy (except to the limited extent permissible under applicable law or for normal operation of the Application), reproduce, translate, adapt, vary, or modify the Application or the Documentation, nor communicate it to any third party, without Vendor’s prior written consent; (c) reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, create derivative works based in whole or any part of, the Application, or otherwise decipher, or tamper with any portion of the Application, nor attempt to do any such things unless this restriction is permitted by the licensing terms governing use of any open-sourced components; (d) use the Application to violate the rights of others; (e) use the Application in high-risk, hazardous environments requiring fail-safe performance, or any other application in which the failure of the Application could lead to severe damages; (f) rent, lease, resell or sublicense the Application; (g) use the Application to perform any malicious activity, including to violate the security or integrity of any network, computer or communications system, software application, or network or computing device; (h) remove, adapt, or otherwise tamper with any copyright notice, legend or logo which appears in or on the Application and the Documentation or on the medium on which it resides; and (i) request, make or accept a request of any payment outside of the Platform to avoid paying fees, or for any other reason, unless expressly authorised by SixSq.

4. Intellectual Property Rights (IPR)

4.1 Ownership. Except as expressly stated in this EULA, this EULA does not grant either Customer or Vendor any rights to each other’s content or any of the other’s IPR. As between Customer and Vendor, Customer owns all IPR in the Customer data, and Vendor owns all IPR in the Application and the Documentation.

4.2 Vendor’s IPR. Vendor shall at all times retain ownership of its Application as originally accessed or downloaded by you and all subsequent downloads of the Application by you.

The Vendor reserves the right to grant licences to use the Application to third parties as applicable.

4.3 IPR. You agree not to infringe Vendor’s IPR in the Application and the Documentation (and those of any owner of third party technology contained in the Application and Documentation) and to comply with the laws of Switzerland and all other applicable laws (including export controls) concerning the Application and the Documentation. You agree not to ship or re-export any portion of the Application and the Documentation to any destination to which it could not lawfully have been exported originally under any export control law.

4.4 Third party technologies. Before using the Application, you should check the listing of third party technologies contained in the Application and Documentation, and the copyright and patent notices applicable to such technologies. The Application and the Documentation are protected by copyrights as well as other IPR.

4.5 Copyright violation. If Customer believes a Vendor, or any person or entity is violating Customer’s copyrights, Customer can notify Vendor at Vendor’s email address provided on the listing page on the Platform.

Customer represents and warrants that: (a) it owns or has the necessary rights and licenses to provide the Customer data to the Application; and (b) the provision or use of the Customer as contemplated in this EULA will not infringe any third party’s rights, including IPR. If Customer is entering into this EULA on behalf of an entity, then it also represents and agrees that it has the legal authority to bind that entity to this EULA.

Vendor shall not be liable for any of the losses even if you have informed Vendor of the possibility of such losses.

6.3 In no event shall Vendor’s liability exceed the amount Vendor received for the Application from you in the calendar year the claim is made. In the event of any liability to you, you agree that in full satisfaction of such liability, Vendor may at its discretion: (i) refund the price you or your organisation paid to Vendor for the Application: (ii) repair the Application; or (iii) replace the Application. In all cases Vendor will not be liable for any loss or damage that was not reasonably foreseeable.
