Client agrees to use an Offering in accordance with laws, rules and regulations directly applicable to Client and acknowledges that Client is solely responsible for determining whether a particular use of an Offering is compliant with such laws.
3.4 Installation and User Accounts. PacketWatch is not responsible for installing Products unless Client purchase installation services from PacketWatch. For those Products requiring user accounts, only the single individual user assigned to a user account may access or use the Product. Client is liable and responsible for all actions and omissions occurring under Client’s and Client’s Contractor’s user accounts for Offerings. Client shall notify PacketWatch if Client learn of any unauthorized access or use of Client’s user accounts or passwords for an Offering.
3.5 Malware Samples. If PacketWatch makes malware samples available to Client in connection with an evaluation or use of the Product (“Malware Samples”), Client acknowledges and agrees that: (i) Client’s access to and use of Malware Samples is at Client’s own risk, and (ii) Client should not download or access any Malware Samples on or through its own production systems and networks and that doing so can infect and damage Client’s systems, networks, and data. Client shall use the Malware Samples solely for Internal Use and not for any malicious or unlawful purpose. PacketWatch will not be liable for any loss or damage caused by any Malware Sample that may infect Client’s computer equipment, computer programs, data, or other proprietary material due to Client’s access to or use of the Malware Samples.
3.6 Third Party Software. PacketWatch uses certain third-party software in its Products, including what is commonly referred to as open-source software. Under some of these third-party licenses, PacketWatch is required to provide Client with notice of the license terms and attribution to the third party. See the licensing terms and attributions for such third-party software that PacketWatch uses at: https://PacketWatch.com/opensource.
3.7 Ownership & Feedback. Products, Product-Related Services, and the PacketWatch Tools are made available for use or licensed, not sold. PacketWatch owns and retains all right, title and interest (including all intellectual property rights) in and to the Products, Product-Related Services, and the PacketWatch Tools. Any feedback or suggestions that Client provides to PacketWatch regarding its Offerings and PacketWatch Tools (e.g., bug fixes and features requests) is non-confidential and may be used by PacketWatch for any purpose without acknowledgement or compensation; provided, Client will not be identified publicly as the source of the feedback or suggestion.
4.1 Authorization. Client authorizes PacketWatch to give Client Contractors the rights and privileges to the Offerings necessary to enable and provide for Client’s use and receipt of the Client Contractor Services. If at any time Client revokes this authorization, to the extent the Offerings provide for Client to limit the Client Contractor’s access and use of the Offerings, then Client is responsible for taking the actions necessary to revoke such access and use. In the event Client requires PacketWatch assistance with such revocation or limitation, Client must contact PacketWatch Support with written notice of such revocation or limitation at support@PacketWatch.com and PacketWatch will disable the Client Contractor’s access to Client’s Offerings within a reasonable period of time following receipt of such notice but in any event within 72 hours of receipt of such notice.
4.2 Disclaimer. Client Contractors are subject to the terms and conditions in the Agreement while they are using the Offerings on behalf of Client and Client remains responsible for their acts and omissions during such time. Any breach by a Client Contractor of this Agreement is a breach by Client. PacketWatch may make available Client Contractor Services to Client, for example, through an online directory, catalog, store, or marketplace. Client Contractor Services are not required for use of the Offerings. Offerings may contain features, including API’s, designed to interface with or provide data to Client Contractor Services. PacketWatch is not responsible or liable for any loss, costs or damages arising out of Client Contractor’s actions or inactions in any manner, including but not limited to, for any disclosure, transfer, modification or deletion of Client Data (defined in Exhibit A). Whether or not a Client Contractor is designated by PacketWatch as, or otherwise claims to be “certified,” “authorized,” or similarly labeled, PacketWatch does not: (i) control, monitor, maintain or provide support for, Client Contractor Services, (ii) disclaims all warranties of any kind, indemnities, obligations, and other liabilities in connection with the Client Contractor Services, and any Client Contractor interface or integration with the Offerings, and (iii) cannot guarantee the continued availability of Client Contractor Services and related features. If Client Contractor Services and related features are no longer available for any reason, PacketWatch is not obligated to provide any refund, credit, or other compensation for, or related to, the Offerings.
4.3 Restrictions on Client Contractors. Client shall not give or allow Client Contractors access to, or use of, intelligence reports provided to Client, or made accessible in the Products. For the avoidance of doubt, nothing herein prevents Client from using intelligence products for Client’s Internal Use.
5.1 Fees. Professional Services will commence on a mutually agreed upon date. Estimates provided for Professional Services performed on a time-and-material basis are estimates only and not a guaranteed time of completion. Professional Services performed on a fixed fee basis are limited to the scope of services stated in the applicable Order.
5.2 Ownership of Deliverables. Professional Services provided hereunder do not constitute “works for hire,” “works made in the course of duty,” or similar terms under laws where the transfer of intellectual property occurs on the performance of services to a payor. The only deliverable arising from the Professional Services is a report consisting primarily of PacketWatch’s findings, recommendations, and adversary information. Client owns the copy of the report (including without limitation, all Client’s Confidential Information therein) delivered to Client (“Deliverable”), subject to PacketWatch’s ownership of the PacketWatch Materials. Client agrees that PacketWatch exclusively owns any and all software (including object and source code), flow charts, algorithms, documentation, adversary information, report templates, know-how, inventions, techniques, models, PacketWatch trademarks, ideas and any and all other works and materials developed by PacketWatch in connection with performing the Professional Services (including without limitation all intellectual property rights therein and thereto) (collectively, the “PacketWatch Materials”) and that title shall remain with PacketWatch. For the avoidance of doubt, the PacketWatch Materials do not include any Client Confidential Information or other Client provided materials or data. Upon payment in full of the amounts due hereunder for the applicable Professional Services and to the extent the PacketWatch Materials are incorporated into the Deliverable(s), Client shall have a perpetual, non-transferable (except as expressly provided in the Section entitled Assignment), non-exclusive license to use the PacketWatch Materials solely as a part of the Deliverable(s) for Client’s Internal Use.
See Exhibit A.
7.1 Definitions. In connection with this Agreement, each party (“Recipient”) may receive Confidential Information of the other party (“Discloser”) or third parties to whom Discloser has a duty of confidentiality. “Confidential Information” means non-public information in any form that is in the Recipient’s possession regardless of the method of acquisition that the Discloser designates as confidential to Recipient or should be reasonably known by the Recipient to be Confidential Information due to the nature of the information disclosed and/or the circumstances surrounding the disclosure. Confidential Information shall not include information that is: (i) in or becomes part of the public domain (other than by disclosure by Recipient in violation of this Agreement); (ii) previously known to Recipient without an obligation of confidentiality and demonstrable by the Recipient; (iii) independently developed by Recipient without use of Discloser’s Confidential Information; or (iv) rightfully obtained by Recipient from third parties without an obligation of confidentiality.
7.2 Restrictions on Use. Except as allowed in Section 7.3 (Exceptions), Recipient shall hold Discloser’s Confidential Information in strict confidence and shall not disclose any such Confidential Information to any third party, other than to its employees, and contractors, including without limitation, counsel, accountants, and financial advisors (collectively, “Representatives”), its Affiliates and their Representatives, subject to the other terms of this Agreement, and in each case who need to know such information and who are bound by restrictions regarding disclosure and use of such information comparable to and no less restrictive than those set forth herein. Recipient shall not use Discloser’s Confidential Information for any purpose other than as set forth in this Agreement. Recipient shall take the same degree of care that it uses to protect its own confidential information of a similar nature and importance (but in no event less than reasonable care) to protect the confidentiality and avoid the unauthorized use, disclosure, publication, or dissemination of the Discloser’s Confidential Information. Within 72 hours of Recipient becoming aware of the unauthorized use, disclosure, publication, or dissemination of the Discloser’s Confidential Information while in Recipient’s control, Recipient shall provide Discloser with notice thereof.
7.3 Exceptions. Recipient may disclose Discloser’s Confidential Information: (i) to the extent required by applicable law or regulation; (ii) pursuant to a subpoena or order of a court or regulatory, self-regulatory, or legislative body of competent jurisdiction; (iii) in connection with any regulatory report, audit, or inquiry; or (iv) where requested by a regulator with jurisdiction over Recipient. In the event of such a requirement or request, Recipient shall, to the extent legally permitted: (a) give Discloser prompt written notice of such requirement or request prior to such disclosure; and (b) at Discloser’s cost, a reasonable opportunity to review and comment upon the disclosure and request confidential treatment or a protective order pertaining thereto prior to Recipient making such disclosure. If the Recipient is legally required to disclose the Discloser’s Confidential Information as part of: (x) a legal proceeding to which the Discloser is a party but the Recipient is not; or (y) a government or regulatory investigation of the Discloser, the Discloser shall pay all of the Recipient’s reasonable and actual out of pocket legal fees and expenses (as evidenced by reasonably detailed invoices) and will reimburse the Recipient for its reasonable costs and fees of compiling and providing such Confidential Information, including, a reasonable hourly rate for time spent preparing for, and participating in, depositions and other testimony.
7.4 Destruction. Upon Discloser’s written request, Recipient shall use commercially reasonable efforts to destroy the Confidential Information and any copies or extracts thereof. However, Recipient, its Affiliates and their Representatives may retain any Confidential Information that: (i) they are required to keep for compliance purposes under a document retention policy or as required by applicable law, professional standards, a court, or regulatory agency; or (ii) have been created electronically pursuant to automatic or ordinary course archiving, back-up, security, or disaster recovery systems or procedures; provided, however, that any such retained information shall remain subject to this Agreement. Upon Discloser’s request, Recipient will provide Discloser with written confirmation of destruction in compliance with this provision.
7.5 Equitable Relief. Each party acknowledges that a breach of this Section 7 (Confidentiality) shall cause the other party irreparable injury and damage. Therefore, each party agrees that those breaches may be stopped through injunctive proceedings in addition to any other rights and remedies which may be available to the injured party at law or in equity without the posting of a bond.
8.1 No Warranty for Pre-Production Versions. Any pre-production feature or version of an Offering provided to Client is experimental and provided “AS IS” without warranty of any kind and will not create any obligation for PacketWatch to continue to develop, productize, support, repair, offer for sale, or in any other way continue to provide or develop any such feature or Offering. Client agrees that its purchase is not contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or features, or dependent on any oral or written statements made by PacketWatch regarding future functionality or features.
8.2 Product Warranty. If Client has purchased a Product, PacketWatch warrants to Client during the applicable Subscription/Order Term that: (i) the Product will operate without Error; and (ii) PacketWatch has used industry standard techniques to prevent the Products at the time of delivery from injecting malicious software viruses into Client’s Endpoints where the Products are installed. Client must notify PacketWatch of any warranty claim during the Subscription/Order Term. Client’s sole and exclusive remedy and the entire liability of PacketWatch for its breach of this warranty will be for PacketWatch, at its own expense to do at least one of the following: (a) use commercially reasonable efforts to provide a work-around or correct such Error; or (b) terminate Client’s license to access and use the applicable non-conforming Product and refund the prepaid fee prorated for the unused period of the Subscription/Order Term. PacketWatch shall have no obligation regarding Errors reported after the applicable Subscription/Order Term.
8.3 Services Warranty. PacketWatch warrants to Client that it will perform all Services in a professional and workmanlike manner consistent with generally accepted industry standards. Client must notify PacketWatch of any warranty claim for Services during the period the Services are being performed or within 30 days after the conclusion of the Services. Client’s sole and exclusive remedy and the entire liability of PacketWatch for its breach of this warranty will be for PacketWatch, at its option and expense, to (a) use commercially reasonable efforts to re-perform the non-conforming Services, or (b) refund the portion of the fees paid attributable to the non-conforming Services.
8.4 Exclusions. The express warranties do not apply if the applicable Product or Service: (i) has been modified, except by PacketWatch, (ii) has not been installed, used, or maintained in accordance with this Agreement or Documentation, or (iii) is non-conforming due to a failure to use an applicable Update. If any part of a Product or Service references websites, hypertext links, network addresses, or other third-party locations, information, or activities, it is provided as a convenience only.
8.5 No Guarantee. CLIENT ACKNOWLEDGES, UNDERSTANDS, AND AGREES THAT PACKETWATCH DOES NOT GUARANTEE OR WARRANT THAT IT WILL FIND, LOCATE, OR DISCOVER ALL OF CLIENT’S OR ITS AFFILIATES’ SYSTEM THREATS, VULNERABILITIES, MALWARE, AND MALICIOUS SOFTWARE, AND CLIENT AND ITS AFFILIATES WILL NOT HOLD PACKETWATCH RESPONSIBLE THEREFOR.
8.6 Disclaimer. EXCEPT FOR THE EXPRESS WARRANTIES IN THIS SECTION 8, PACKETWATCH AND ITS AFFILIATES DISCLAIM ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, PACKETWATCH AND ITS AFFILIATES AND SUPPLIERS SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT WITH RESPECT TO THE OFFERINGS AND PACKETWATCH TOOLS. THERE IS NO WARRANTY THAT THE OFFERINGS OR PACKETWATCH TOOLS WILL BE ERROR FREE, OR THAT THEY WILL OPERATE WITHOUT INTERRUPTION OR WILL FULFILL ANY OF CLIENT’S PARTICULAR PURPOSES OR NEEDS. THE OFFERINGS AND PACKETWATCH TOOLS ARE NOT FAULT-TOLERANT AND ARE NOT DESIGNED OR INTENDED FOR USE IN ANY HAZARDOUS ENVIRONMENT REQUIRING FAIL-SAFE PERFORMANCE OR OPERATION. NEITHER THE OFFERINGS NOR PACKETWATCH TOOLS ARE FOR USE IN THE OPERATION OF AIRCRAFT NAVIGATION, NUCLEAR FACILITIES, COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS, WEAPONS SYSTEMS, DIRECT OR INDIRECT LIFE-SUPPORT SYSTEMS, AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL, OR ANY APPLICATION OR INSTALLATION WHERE FAILURE COULD RESULT IN DEATH, SEVERE PHYSICAL INJURY, OR PROPERTY DAMAGE.

PACKETWATCH DOES NOT WARRANT ANY THIRD-PARTY PRODUCTS OR SERVICES.

Exhibit A: Data Security and Privacy Schedule
a. “PacketWatch Systems” means those computer systems hosting the ‘PW MDR Platform’.
b. “Client Data” means the data generated by the Client’s Endpoints and collected by: (i) the Products, and/or (ii) the PacketWatch Tools, and in either case, sent to the PacketWatch Systems. Client Data is considered Client’s Confidential Information (defined in Section 7 Confidentiality) and subject to the exclusions, exceptions and obligations set forth therein and this Exhibit A Data Security and Privacy Schedule.
c. “Execution Profile/Metric Data” means any machine-generated data, such as metadata derived from tasks, file execution, commands, resources, network telemetry, executable binary files, macros, scripts, and processes, that: (i) Client provides to PacketWatch in connection with this Agreement or (ii) is collected or discovered during the course of PacketWatch providing Offerings, excluding any such information or data that identifies Client or to the extent it includes Personal Data.
d. “Personal Data” means information provided by Client to PacketWatch or collected by PacketWatch from Client used to distinguish or trace a natural person’s identity, either alone or when combined with other personal or identifying information that is linked or linkable by PacketWatch to a specific natural person. Personal Data also includes such other information about a specific natural person to the extent that the data protection laws applicable in the jurisdictions in which such person resides define such information as Personal Data.
e. “Privacy and Security Laws” means U.S. federal, state and local and non-U.S. laws, including those of the European Union, that regulate the privacy or security of Personal Data and that are directly applicable to PacketWatch.
f. “Security Breach” means unauthorized access to, or unauthorized acquisition of: (i) Client Data, or (ii) Personal Data, stored on PacketWatch Systems that results in the compromise of such Client Data and/or Personal Data.
g. “Threat Actor Data” means any packets, malware, spyware, virus, worm, Trojan horse, or other potentially malicious or harmful code or files, URLs, DNS data, network telemetry, commands, processes or techniques, metadata, or other information or data, in each case that is potentially related to unauthorized third parties associated therewith and that: (i) Client provides to PacketWatch in connection with this Agreement, or (ii) is collected or discovered during the course of PacketWatch providing Offerings, excluding any such information or data that identifies Client or to the extent that it includes Personal Data.
The ‘PW MDR Platform’ uses content collected from its clients, partners, and others, for the benefit of all its clients, to help each client protect themselves against suspicious and potentially destructive activities. PacketWatch’s Products are designed to quickly detect, identify, and respond to intrusions by collecting and analyzing data, including network data, packets, PCAPs, logs, machine event data, executed scripts, code, system files, c2 beacons, login information, binaries, tasks, resource information, commands, protocol identifiers, URLs, and related metadata. Client, rather than PacketWatch, determines which types of data, whether Personal Data or not, exist on its own systems and networks. Accordingly, Client’s network environment is unique in configurations and naming conventions and the collected data could potentially include Personal Data. PacketWatch uses the data to: (i) analyze, characterize, attribute, warn of, and/or respond to threats against Client and other Clients, (ii) analyze trends and performance, (iii) improve the functionality of, and develop, PacketWatch’s products and services, and enhance cybersecurity; and (iv) permit Clients to leverage other applications that use the data, but for all of the foregoing, in a way that does not identify Client or Client’s Personal Data to other Clients. Neither Execution Profile/Metric Data nor Threat Actor Data are Client’s Confidential Information or Client Data.
a. Provisioning/Use of Offerings. Personal Data may be collected and used during the provisioning and use of the Offerings to deliver, support and improve the Offerings, administer the Agreement and further the business relationship between Client and PacketWatch, comply with law, act in accordance with Client’s written instructions, or otherwise in accordance with this Agreement. Client authorizes PacketWatch to collect, use, store and transfer the Personal Data that Client provide to PacketWatch as contemplated in this Agreement.
b. Suspicious/Unknown File Analysis. While using certain PacketWatch Offerings Client may have the option to submit or upload (by submission, configuration, and/or, in the case of Services, by PacketWatch personnel retrieval) files and other information related to the files for security analysis and response or, when submitting crash reports, to make the product more reliable and/or improve PacketWatch’s products and services or enhance cyber-security. These potentially suspicious or unknown files may be transmitted and analyzed to determine functionality and their potential to cause instability or damage Client’s endpoint. In some instances, these files could contain Personal Data for which Client are responsible.
a. Compliance with Laws. PacketWatch shall comply with all Privacy and Security Laws, the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the US Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of Personal Data from the European Economic Area, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom, as applicable. PacketWatch’s privacy notice may be found at https://www.packetwatch.com/privacy-notice/. To the extent necessary to comply with Privacy and Security Laws, including but not limited to when Client is a controller of Personal Data processed by PacketWatch originating in the European Union, Switzerland, or the United Kingdom, the Data Protection Addendum set forth [Contact us for a copy of the GDPR Agreement via firstname.lastname@example.org] shall apply to PacketWatch’s processing of such Client Personal Data.
b. Safeguards. PacketWatch shall maintain appropriate technical and organizational safeguards commensurate with the sensitivity of the Client Data and Personal Data processed by it on Client’s behalf, which are designed to protect the security, confidentiality, and integrity of such Client Data and Personal Data and protect such Client Data and Personal Data against accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access which substantially conform to the CIS CSC or NIST control framework.
