With respect to certain Services, Customer grants CyberArk the right to collect and use anonymized threat intelligence indicators directly derived from the provision of the Services, including an automated content scan of Customer Data stored in the Services (“Non-Identifiable Threat Indicators”) for CyberArk’s reasonable business purposes, including without limitation for improving the Services.
Certain Services have deep scanning and data analytics capabilities, as described in the Documentation, and if Customer has purchased such Services, Customer shall ensure that the use of the Services on its endpoints complies with Customer’s internal privacy policies and procedures with respect to analysis of endpoint data for information security purposes.
3.5 Processing of Personal Data. To the extent required by applicable laws, Customer warrants that it complies with its obligations under relevant data protection laws in respect of its processing of personal data and in any processing instructions that Customer issues to CyberArk, including any obligations specific to its role as data controller or data processor (as applicable). Without limitation to the foregoing, Customer shall ensure that its instructions comply with all laws, regulations and rules applicable to such personal data, and that CyberArk’s processing of the personal data in accordance with Customer’s instructions will not cause CyberArk to violate any applicable laws. Customer will ensure that it has all necessary consents and notices in place to enable the lawful transfer of the personal data (as prescribed by applicable laws) to CyberArk for the duration and purposes of this Agreement.

CyberArk shall make available to Customers who have paid fees for the Service, support, updates, and maintenance in accordance with CyberArk standard terms of the maintenance and support (based on the support level purchased by Customer). Upon notification from CyberArk, Customer shall promptly update any locally-installed software agents on Customer systems that interact with the Services. Customer acknowledges and agrees that its failure to timely install such an update may result in disruptions to or failures of the Services, or suspension of Customer’s access to the Services, without any liability on the part of CyberArk to Customer.
5.1 Payment Terms. Fees for the Service are due annually in advance net thirty (30) days from date of invoice unless otherwise agreed between the parties. Fees do not include sales, use, value added or other excise tax. Customer is responsible for payment of all such taxes based on fees paid or payable hereunder (but not taxes based on CyberArk’s gross revenues or net income) together with any interest on such taxes if not due to CyberArk’s delay. Delinquent payments may be assessed interest at the rate of one-and-one-half percent per month (or the highest rate permissible by law if less) from the payment due date until paid in full. This Section will apply to the CyberArk Reseller if the Order is placed by it, with the necessary changes and subject to its valid agreement with CyberArk.
5.2 Reasonable Use of Services. Fees for the Service are based on “normal usage” of the Service in a manner consistent with its intended purposes and as described in the Documentation.

7.1 Confidential Information. Each party may have access to information that is confidential or proprietary to the other party and/or its Affiliates. For purposes of this Agreement, “Confidential Information” means the confidential information of a party and/or its Affiliates which is disclosed to the other party in connection with this Agreement, whether disclosed in written, oral, electronic, visual or other form, which is identified as confidential at the time of disclosure or should reasonably be understood to be confidential given the nature of the information and the circumstances surrounding the disclosure, including without limitation information regarding a party’s business, operations, finances, technologies, current and future products and services, pricing, personnel, customers and suppliers, the Customer Data, CyberArk’s Services and each Party’s intellectual property.

The receiving party will use the disclosing party’s Confidential Information solely as necessary in connection with the performance of this Agreement. The receiving party shall maintain the confidentiality of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information using at least the same degree of care that such party uses to protect its own Confidential Information of a similar nature, and shall restrict disclosure of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information to its employees, consultants, contractors, agents and representatives who have a need to know such information and are bound by obligations of confidentiality and non-use no less restrictive than those set forth herein; provided, that a party may disclose the disclosing party’s Confidential Information if required by law and provided the receiving party provides prompt notice of such requirement and disclosure to the other party to the extent allowed by law. The receiving party shall have the right to disclose Confidential Information of the other party pursuant to the order or requirement of a court, administrative agency, or other governmental body provided that the receiving party provides prompt, advance written notice thereof to enable the disclosing party to seek a protective order or otherwise prevent such disclosure. In the event such a protective order is not obtained by the disclosing party, the receiving party shall disclose only that portion of the Confidential Information which its legal counsel advises that it is legally required to disclose. Confidential Information so disclosed shall continue to be deemed Confidential Information.
7.3 Equitable and Injunctive Relief. If a party breaches any of its obligations with respect to confidentiality or use or disclosure of Confidential Information hereunder, the other party is entitled to seek equitable and injunctive relief in addition to all other remedies that may be available to protect its interest without having to post a bond or prove irreparable harm.

14. GENERAL PROVISIONS.
14.1 Notices. All notices under this Agreement shall be made in writing and delivered to each party at the address under its signature hereto. Notices shall be deemed delivered (i) upon personal delivery with signature required, (ii) one Business Day after they have been sent to the recipient by reputable overnight courier service (charges prepaid and signature required), or (iii) upon successful transmission of an email containing such notice if sent between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., local time of the recipient, on any Business Day, and as of 9 a.m. local time of the recipient on the next Business Day if sent at any other time, or (iv) three Business Days after deposit in the mail. “Business Day” as used in this Section 14.1 shall mean any day other than Saturday, Sunday or a day on which banking institutions are not required to be open in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
14.2 Entire Agreement. This Agreement together with each Order represent the entire agreement between Customer and CyberArk with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersede all prior proposals, representations and agreements, whether written or oral, with respect thereto. This Agreement shall govern with respect to all Orders and forms of purchases, whether submitted through electronic transmissions or otherwise, unless otherwise agreed by both parties in writing. The terms and conditions of this Agreement shall take precedence over any conflicting terms in the Order (or, an agreement between CyberArk and the Reseller, if applicable) unless the Order (or the Reseller’s agreement) expressly amends this Agreement and is signed by both parties. Any waiver, amendment, or modification of any right or remedy, in whole or in part under this Agreement, or any additional or different terms in any purchase orders, acknowledgments or other documents other than the Order, will not be effective unless expressly agreed to by both parties in writing or electronic form. If Customer issues a purchase order in connection with an Order, such purchase order shall be solely for Customer’s internal administrative purposes and to facilitate payment. In no event shall the terms of such purchase order modify or become part of these Terms of Service or become binding on CyberArk even if CyberArk signs an acknowledgment copy of such purchase order.

Except as expressly provided for herein, this Agreement may not be assigned by either party without the prior written consent of the other party, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, including by reason of a change of control or by operation of law.

CyberArk may use subcontractors in connection with the performance of the Services provided that it shall be responsible for the acts and omissions of its subcontractors to the same extent as it would be responsible hereunder for its own acts and omissions. The terms of this Agreement shall be binding upon the permitted successors and assigns of each party.
14.4 Governing Law. The terms of this Agreement shall be construed in accordance with the substantive laws of Massachusetts without regard to its principles of conflict of law or the U.N.

14.5 Force Majeure. Neither party shall be liable for any breach of this Agreement to the extent that such breach arises from factors outside its reasonable control. Customer’s subscription to the Services is predicated on Customer’s use of cloud computing services provided by a third party cloud service provider, and CyberArk will not be responsible for the acts or omissions of Customer’s cloud service provider.
14.6 Severability. It is intended that this Agreement shall not violate any applicable law and the unenforceability or invalidity of any provision (other than the provisions obligating Customer to make payments to CyberArk) shall not affect the force and validity of the remaining provisions and such provisions determined to be invalid shall be deemed severed from this Agreement and, to the extent possible, be replaced with terms which as closely as possible approximate the interest and economic intent of such invalid provisions.
