Customer may use the Software in connection with an application available to its end users, as long as Customer’s end users cannot access the Software directly. Customer may allow Affiliates to use the Software provided that Customer is responsible for such Affiliate’s compliance with this Agreement. The Software may include code that is licensed under third party license agreements, including open-source software made available or provided with the Software. Software is licensed and not sold even if for convenience Redis refers to words such as sale or purchase.
2.2 Restrictions. Customer shall not (and will not allow any third party to): (a) decompile, disassemble, translate, reverse engineer or otherwise attempt to derive source code from any encrypted or encoded portion of the Software, in whole or in part, nor will Customer use any mechanical, electronic or other method to trace, decompile, disassemble, or identify the source code of the Software (except and only to the extent that applicable law prohibits or restricts reverse engineering restrictions), (b) directly or indirectly circumvent or violate the technical restrictions of the Software, (c) sell, sublicense, rent, lease, distribute, market, or commercialize the Software for any purpose, including timesharing or service bureau purposes, (d) remove or change any product identification, proprietary, copyright or other notices contained in the Software, (e) modify or create a derivative work of any portion of the Software, (f) publicly disseminate performance information or analysis including benchmarking test results related to the Software or the Commercial Subscription, and (g) combine Software with any non-Redis Enterprise module (e.g., a modified Redis open-source module), without the prior written consent of Redis, as such combination(s) may inhibit the Support Services.

However, Redis may, in its discretion, make reasonable efforts to provide support to certain Previews; and (iv) provides the Previews subject to the applicable limited license terms, and restrictions, included in this Agreement.
Customer agrees to pay all fees set forth in all Order Forms or SOWs. Unless otherwise specified in an Order Form or SOW, all fees and other amounts are payable in United States Dollars. Except as specifically set forth in this Agreement, all payment obligations under all Order Forms or SOWs are non-cancelable and all payments made are non-refundable. The fees exclude any applicable taxes; accordingly, Customer shall pay applicable taxes and similar charges, including sales, usage, excise and value added taxes. Nothing in this Agreement requires either Party to pay income taxes or similar charges of the other Party. If applicable law requires Customer to withhold any amount from Customer’s payment, Customer will provide Redis with copies of documents related to Customer’s withholding, fully cooperate with Redis in seeking a waiver or reduction of such taxes and promptly complete and file all relevant documents. Overdue payments shall be subject to a late charge of 1.5% per month. Fees for Commercial Subscriptions of the Software do not include fees related to usage-based infrastructure, or variable network costs. Nothing in the Agreement will require Redis to pay any fees for the use of a third-party payment processing system selected by Customer, and Redis will include any related fees for such system selected by Customer on applicable invoices. Any optional pricing must be explicitly stated in the applicable Order Form.
4.1 Definition. Either Party may disclose Confidential Information to the other Party pursuant to this Agreement. “Confidential Information” means non-public information disclosed by one Party (“Discloser”) to the other Party (“Recipient”) that is shared, whether orally or in writing, and that is designated as confidential, or that reasonably should be understood to be confidential given the nature of the information and the circumstances of disclosure, and all copies and summaries thereof. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Confidential information of Redis also includes: the Software, Commercial Keys, the Agreement terms, any Order Form(s) (including pricing contained therein), and Redis security or other sensitive documentation (such as a SOC 2 Type II report). Confidential Information does not include information that (a) is or becomes publicly available through no fault of Recipient, (b) was known to Recipient, free of any confidentiality obligations, before receipt, (c) becomes known to Recipient, free of any confidentiality obligations, from a source other than Discloser, or (d) is independently developed by Recipient without the use of Discloser’s Confidential Information.
4.2 Obligations. Recipient will not reproduce, use, disseminate, or disclose Confidential Information to any person or entity, except to its employees and authorized employees, Affiliates, consultants, or advisors (collectively, “Representatives”), who need to know the Confidential Information to further the Purpose and are bound by obligations at least as restrictive as this Agreement before having access to Confidential Information. Recipient is responsible for the acts and omissions of its Representatives under this Agreement. Recipient will not modify, reverse engineer, create other works from, or disassemble any software programs contained in the Confidential Information without Discloser’s written approval. Recipient will treat all Confidential Information with at least the same degree of care as it treats its own information of similar sensitivity, but never less than reasonable care. Recipient will stop the use of and return or destroy all tangible Confidential Information promptly upon request, together with any copies, except as otherwise required by law or pursuant to a bona fide archival or document retention policy. Recipient may disclose Confidential Information: (a) upon Discloser’s written approval; and (b) as necessary to respond to a valid order by a court or governmental body, as required by law, or as necessary to establish the rights of either Party, provided that Recipient promptly notifies Discloser upon receipt of a disclosure order and requests confidential treatment of any affected Confidential Information. Subject to applicable law, Recipient shall comply with its obligations with respect to Confidential Information under this Agreement for five years after termination of the Agreement (except for source code, which must be kept in confidence in perpetuity). Upon written request of the Discloser or at the termination of this Agreement, Recipient will promptly return to Discloser or destroy (or in the case of electronic data, use commercially reasonable efforts to delete or render practicably inaccessible by Recipient) Confidential Information of Discloser.
4.3 Rights. All Confidential Information remains the property of Discloser. Recipient does not receive any license or intellectual property rights to Discloser’s Confidential Information. The Parties agree that the Recipient’s disclosure of Confidential Information, except as provided herein, may result in irreparable injury for which monetary damages may be inadequate. The Parties further agree that in the event of such disclosure or threatened disclosure, the Discloser may be entitled to seek an injunction to prevent the breach or threatened breach, in addition to remedies otherwise available to the Discloser at law or in equity. If the Parties have executed a separate non-disclosure or confidentiality agreement (an “NDA”) related to the purpose of this Agreement, this Section will supersede and replace such NDA.
As between Redis and Customer, all rights, title, and interest in and to all intellectual property rights in the Software are owned exclusively by Redis, notwithstanding any other provision in this Agreement. Except as expressly provided in this Agreement, Redis reserves all rights in the Software and does not grant Customer any rights, express or implied or by estoppel. Redis may inspect Customer’s records relating to its use of the Software for the purposes of verifying compliance with this Agreement for up to one (1) year following termination. Redis encourages Customer to provide suggestions, proposals, ideas, recommendations, or other feedback regarding improvements to Redis’ products and services. If Customer provides such feedback, Customer grants to Redis a royalty-free, fully paid, sub-licensable, transferable (notwithstanding Section 10.2), non-exclusive, irrevocable, perpetual, worldwide right and license to make, use, sell, offer for sale, import and otherwise exploit feedback (including by incorporation of such feedback into the Software) without restriction.
6.1 Software Warranty. Redis warrants that: (a) the Software as provided will perform substantially in accordance with the Documentation for a period of 90 days from delivery of the Commercial Keys, and (b) that the Support Services will be performed in a work person-like manner consistent with industry standards. If Customer believes there has been a breach of this warranty, Customer must promptly notify Redis in writing within the warranty period or following delivery of the Support Services as the case may be, stating in reasonable detail the nature of the alleged breach. If there has been a breach of this warranty, then the exclusive remedies will be for Redis (i) to correct or replace the non-performing components of the Software, or (ii) re-perform at no additional charge, any affected Support Services to cause them to comply with this warranty. If Redis is unable to comply with this warranty, Customer shall be entitled to terminate the applicable Order Form and receive a prorated refund of the fees pre-paid by Customer for the corresponding unused portion of the Subscription Term.
6.2 Mutual Warranty. Each Party represents and warrants that this Agreement has been duly authorized, executed and delivered and constitutes a valid and binding agreement enforceable against the other Party in accordance with its terms.
6.3 Disclaimer. EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN THIS WARRANTY SECTION AND TO THE EXTENT NOT PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE SOFTWARE (INCLUDING TRIAL, EVALUATION SOFTWARE AND PREVIEWS), SUPPORT SERVICES, AND CONSULTING SERVICES ARE PROVIDED TO CUSTOMER “AS-IS” WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, INTEGRATION, NON-INFRINGEMENT, TITLE, PERFORMANCE, SECURITY, AND ACCURACY AND ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARISING FROM STATUTE, COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, OR USAGE OF TRADE. NEITHER THE SOFTWARE (INCLUDING TRIAL, EVALUATION SOFTWARE AND PREVIEWS) NOR THE SUPPORT SERVICES ARE SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED, MANUFACTURED OR INTENDED FOR USE IN THE PLANNING, CONSTRUCTION, MAINTENANCE, CONTROL, OR DIRECT OPERATION OF NUCLEAR FACILITIES, AIRCRAFT NAVIGATION, CONTROL OR COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS, WEAPONS SYSTEMS, DIRECT LIFE SUPPORT SYSTEMS, OR OTHER MISSION CRITICAL SYSTEMS.
6.4 Customer Software Configurations. Customer shall implement and follow complex password requirements such as NIST 800-63 or a similar standard regarding password and credentials protections for its users (“Digital Identity Guidelines”). Redis cannot be responsible for Customer’s refusal to implement appropriate Digital Identity Guidelines.

7.1 Limit on Direct Damages. TO THE EXTENT NOT PROHIBITED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL EITHER PARTY’S (OR THEIR AFFILIATES’) TOTAL AND CUMULATIVE LIABILITY, FOR ALL CLAIMS OF ANY NATURE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE SOFTWARE (INCLUDING TRIAL, EVALUATION SOFTWARE AND PREVIEWS), SUPPORT SERVICES, OR CONSULTING SERVICES PROVIDED HEREUNDER EXCEED THE TOTAL FEES PAID BY CUSTOMER TO REDIS FOR COMMERCIAL SUBSCRIPTIONS IN THE TWELVE MONTHS PRECEDING THE DATE OF THE FIRST EVENT WHICH GIVES RISE TO LIABILITY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT.
7.2 No Indirect and/or Consequential Damages. TO THE EXTENT NOT PROHIBITED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL EITHER PARTY BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, COVER, LOSS OF PROFITS OR REVENUE, LOSS OF GOODWILL, LOSS OF USE OF DATA, OR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES HOWEVER CAUSED, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, WARRANTY, NEGLIGENCE OR ANY OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY, EVEN IF SUCH PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED AS TO THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
7.3 Exceptions to the Limitation of Liability. THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY AND DISCLAIMER OF DAMAGES WILL NOT APPLY TO (A) ANY OBLIGATION AS DESCRIBED IN SECTION 3 (FEES), SECTION 5 (INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY), SECTION 8 (INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INDEMNIFICATION), INCLUDING PAYMENTS TO A THIRD PARTY, OR (B) ANY LIABILITY FOR: (i) DEATH OR BODILY INJURY CAUSED BY NEGLIGENCE, (ii) GROSS NEGLIGENCE, OR (iii) WILLFUL MISCONDUCT. NEITHER PARTY’S THIRD-PARTY LICENSORS NOR SUPPLIERS HAVE ANY LIABILITY OF ANY KIND UNDER THIS AGREEMENT. THE PARTIES AGREE THAT LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY IN THIS AGREEMENT ARE INTENDED TO SURVIVE IF A PARTY’S REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE, AND THAT THE FEES FOR SOFTWARE WOULD HAVE BEEN GREATER WITHOUT THEM BY NECESSITY.
8.1 Indemnification by Redis. Redis will defend Customer against any third-party claim that the Software provided under a Commercial Subscription infringes a registered patent, registered trademark, or copyright of a third party, or misappropriates a trade secret (“Claim Against Customer”) and will pay Customer for the resulting amounts finally awarded against Customer to such third party by a court of competent jurisdiction or agreed to in settlement. Redis will have no liability to Customer under this Section for any Claim Against Customer that arises out of: (a) any unauthorized use, reproduction, or distribution of the Software by Customer, (b) use of the Software in combination with any other software, content, data, business process, or equipment not supported in Redis’ Documentation, if such Claim Against Customer would have been avoided without such combination, (c) any modification or alteration of the Software by anyone other than Redis, (d) use of any older release of the Software, when a newer version would have avoided the infringement, (e) Redis’ compliance with any materials, designs, specifications or instructions provided by Customer, or (f) any infringement by third-party open-source software components included within the Software. In the event of a Claim Against Customer pursuant to this Section, Redis will (at Redis’ option and expense): (i) obtain for Customer the right to continue using the Software provided under a Commercial Subscription, (ii) modify the Software provided under a Commercial Subscription to make it non-infringing, or (iii) if subsections (i) and (ii) are not commercially viable (as determined by Redis in its sole discretion), terminate this Agreement, in which case Customer will be entitled to a pro-rated refund of any fees pre-paid by Customer for the corresponding unused period of the applicable Subscription Term.
8.2 Indemnification by Customer. Customer will defend Redis against: (a) any third-party claim that Customer’s use of the Software in breach of this Agreement, infringes a registered patent, registered trademark, or copyright, or misappropriates a trade secret (to the extent that such infringement or misappropriation is not the result of Redis’ actions), or (b) any claim relating to Customer’s use of the Software in violation of Section 2 (License & Restrictions) of this Agreement. Customer will, with respect to any claim against Redis that is subject to this Section, indemnify Redis for the resulting costs and damages finally awarded against Redis to such third party by a court of competent jurisdiction or agreed to in settlement.
8.3 Indemnification Process. As a condition of receiving any indemnification under this Agreement, the Party seeking indemnification (the “Indemnified Party”) will provide the other Party (the “Indemnifying Party”) with: (a) prompt written notice of the claim, provided, however, that the failure to give such notice shall not relieve the Indemnifying Party’s obligations hereunder, except to the extent that the Indemnifying Party is prejudiced by such failure, (b) complete control over the defense and settlement of the claim (provided, that the Indemnifying Party will not settle any claim without the Indemnified Party’s prior written consent, if the settlement fails to unconditionally release the Indemnified Party from all liability pertaining to such claim, such consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned), and (c) such assistance as the Indemnifying Party may reasonably request, in connection with the defense and settlement of the claim, at the Indemnifying Party’s expense. The indemnification obligations under this Section state the Indemnifying Party’s entire liability and the Indemnified Party’s exclusive remedy for third party claims and actions described in this Section.
9.1 Agreement Term. This Agreement commences on the earlier of (a) the date that the Parties sign an Order Form, or (b) the Agreement Effective Date, and continues until all of Customer’s Free Subscriptions and Commercial Subscriptions expire or either Party terminates this Agreement earlier in accordance with this Section. Either Party may terminate this Agreement and any applicable Order Form or SOW if the other Party materially breaches this Agreement and does not cure such breach within 30 days of written notice. Termination of an Order Form or SOW will have no effect on the Agreement, which must be terminated in accordance with its terms. Upon termination of this Agreement, Customer will remove the Software from all servers on which Software was installed. Sections 1, 2.2, 3 to 10, and any other provisions intended by their nature to survive termination of this Agreement shall survive termination.
9.2 Order Form Term. The Order Form specifies the start date of the Commercial Subscription and the associated initial term (the “Initial Term”). Unless otherwise stated in an Order Form, at the end of the Initial Term, the Subscription Term will automatically renew for the specified period (each a “Renewal Term”), subject to an annual fee increase not to exceed the greater of 5% or CPI-U per year, unless either Party notifies the other Party in writing of its intent not to renew the Order Form at least 30 days prior to the end of the then-current term.
10.1 Ambiguities. Each Party has participated in the review of this Agreement. Any rule of construction to the effect that ambiguities are to be resolved against the drafting party shall not apply in interpreting this Agreement. The language in this Agreement shall be interpreted as to its fair meaning and not strictly for or against any party.
10.2 Assignment. Customer will not, directly, indirectly, by operation of law or otherwise, assign all or any part of this Agreement or its rights hereunder or delegate performance of any of its duties hereunder without the prior written consent of Redis and any attempt to do so will be null and void. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either Party may assign this Agreement in its entirety to an Affiliate or to a successor in interest by way of a merger, reorganization, or a sale of all or substantially all the assets of the Party. Subject to the foregoing restrictions, this Agreement will be fully binding upon, inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by the Parties and their respective successors and assigns.
10.3 Collaboration. Each Party acknowledges that the trademarks, logos and service marks (“Marks”) of the other Party are the property of Redis or Customer, as applicable.

Redis agrees to stop distributing, publicly referencing, and displaying the materials at any time upon written request from Customer.
10.4 Compliance with Laws. The Parties will comply with all laws, statutes, and regulations applicable to them respectively under this Agreement. Each Party agrees that it has not received or been offered any illegal or improper bribe, kickback, payment, gift, or thing of value from any of the other Parties’ Representatives in connection with this Agreement. If a Party becomes aware of any violation of this Section, it will notify the other through the designated channel.
10.6 Contractual Relationship. The Parties are entering into this Agreement as independent contracting Parties. Neither Party will have, or hold itself out as having, any right or authority to incur any obligation on behalf of the other Party. This Agreement will not be construed to create an association, joint venture, principal to agent relationship or partnership between the Parties or to impose any partnership liability upon any Party.

Major Release means a version of the Software made generally available by Redis with improvements and bug fixes, represented by a change in the number to the left or right of the first decimal point (e.g., change from 1.1.0 to 2.1.0 or from 1.1.0 to 1.2.0).
Minor Release means a version change represented by a change in the number to the right of the last decimal point.
Software-Related Data mean certain information related to Customer’s use of the Software including, by means of example, Software log files and Software configuration files, that Customer may need to submit for a Support package.
Support Services means the services described in this Support Policy and does not include one-time services or other services not specified in this Support Policy, such as training or consulting.
Redis will use Software-Related Data solely for the purposes of providing the Support Services and, in an aggregated and anonymized form, for improving the Software. If Customer limits Redis’ access to Software-Related Data, Redis will not be responsible for any resulting delays in providing the Support Services.
Support may be initiated and managed only by Customer’s Technical Contacts. “Technical Contacts” are named individuals who are responsible for administration of the Software within Customer’s organization.
Technical Contacts may initiate a support ticket (“Ticket”) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through: (a) Redis’ web ticketing system at https://redis.com/company/contact/support/; (b) an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or (c) our support hotline at a phone number provided at the Support Services UI. Support is provided in the English language only.
As part of the Support Services and at no additional subscription fee, Redis will provide Customer with all new versions of the Software that it generally releases (at its sole discretion), including to the extent such are available, all updates of existing functionalities and bug fixes. All such new versions are provided subject to the terms of the Agreement. Support does not include any item that Redis offers separately from the Software or that Redis makes available for an additional fee.
Redis will make commercially reasonable efforts to resolve any Ticket detailing a material and verifiable failure of the Software to conform to its Documentation. Such efforts may include helping with diagnosis, suggesting workarounds, providing patches, or making a change to the Software in a new release. Support Services will not be provided for (a) use of the Software in a manner inconsistent with the applicable Documentation, (b) modifications to the Software not provided by or approved in writing by Redis, or (c) use of the Software with products or software not provided or approved in writing by Redis.
Redis will reasonably assess and assign each Ticket a priority level (“Priority Level”) as defined in Table 1 – Priority Levels below. Redis will confirm the Priority Level with the Technical Contact and will resolve any disagreement regarding the Priority Level as soon as is reasonably practical.
Table 1 – Priority Levels
|Urgent||a catastrophic problem in Customer’s production database that results in the inability to access Customer Data or in loss of Customer Data. This Priority Level is not applicable for non-production databases.||1 hour|
|High||a high-impact problem in Customer’s production database that would disrupt essential operations, without impact on data availability and with no data loss. This Priority Level is not applicable for non-production databases.||3 hours|
|Normal||a lower impact problem in Customer’s production or non-production database that involves a partial or limited loss of non-critical functionality, or some other problem not involving loss in functionality and not preventing your continued essential operations. Normal also includes any problem relating to non-production databases, such as test and development databases.||10 hours Monday to Friday, 9AM to 6PM, in the primary geographic zone specified by Customer.|
|Low||a general usage question. It also includes enhancement or modification requests. There is no impact on the quality, performance, or functionality of the database in a production or non-production system.|
Subject to payment of the fees due for Premium Support for the applicable Subscription Term, Redis will provide Premium Support for the Commercial Subscription for production deployments as follows:
In addition to submitting a Support package, which is required for Redis to meet the response times stated under Table 1, Customer shall provide Redis with timely access to Customer’s Technical Contacts as reasonably required for allowing Redis to resolve reported Tickets. Customer is responsible for the adequate duplication and documentation of all of Customer’s files and data for back-up purposes, and for all the contents of the Support package. If, and to the extent, Redis receives personally identifiable information from Customer in connection with the Support Services, and provided that Customer has enabled the included secure support setting in the Software, unless otherwise stated explicitly (the references to “Cloud Services” will include the “Support Services”): (i) the Redis Data Processing Addendum available at: https://redis.com/data-processing-addendum; and (ii) the Redis Technical and Organizational Measures, available at: https://redis.com/technical-organizational-measures/. The liability limitations within the Agreement shall apply.
If Customer encounters a critical technical issue on its production system or Customer is not satisfied with the response or resolution provided by Redis’ Support Services, Customer may use one of the following escalation paths:
Our Support Services cover each Major Release for eighteen (18) months after its general release. During the eighteen (18) months after a Major Release has been made available, Redis will offer Minor Releases of that Major Release. During this period, Redis will also offer updates of existing functionality and bug fixes for the latest Minor Release (but not prior Minor Releases or the Major Release if Minor Releases have been issued since the Major Release). Eighteen (18) months after the release of the Major Release, such Major Release and all its Minor Releases will have reached its End of Life (“EOL”). After a Major Release has reached its EOL, Redis will not support, in any way, such Major Release or any Minor Releases of such Major Release. Support only covers use of the Software on the platform or operating system versions that are specified by Redis. Support does not cover use of the Software on platforms or operating systems that are no longer supported by Redis.
Except as expressly provided herein, no modification of this Support Policy will be effective unless made in writing and signed by an authorized representative of each Party. Redis may amend this Support Policy in its sole discretion. Redis may make such amendments by posting updated Support Policy terms to the applicable website or marketplace, if any, in which case Redis will also update the version date at the top of the Agreement. By continuing to access or use Redis’ Support Services after Redis has provided Customer with such notice of a change, Customer is agreeing to be bound by the modified Support Policy. If the changes have a material adverse impact on Customer and are not acceptable to it, then Customer must notify Redis within 30 days of the applicable version date. If Redis cannot accommodate Customer’s objection, then the prior Support Policy shall govern until the expiration of the then-current Subscription Term. Any renewed Subscription will be governed by the then-current Support Policy. No term or condition contained in Customer’s ordering documents apply unless specifically agreed to by Redis in writing, even if Redis has accepted the documentation.
Subject to payment of the applicable fees, Redis will provide during the Subscription Term, one of the Customer Success Service Levels outlined in Table 1 or Table 2 below, as specified in the corresponding Order Form. The Definitions and License provisions of Appendix 3 are hereby incorporated by reference with the understanding that references to “Consulting Services” are references to “Customer Success Services” for the purposes of this Appendix 2.

(Only applicable if Customer opts to use Consulting Services)
Customer may wish to receive certain services of a professional, educational, operational or technical nature (collectively, “Consulting Services”), as further described in a mutually agreed upon Statement of Work (“SOW”) or as otherwise outlined in the applicable Order Form. Each SOW or Order Form will include, at a minimum: (a) a description of the Consulting Services and any Redis Materials (as defined below) to be provided to Customer, and (b) the scope of the Consulting Services. Any Consulting Services that are purchased, as a package or as pre-paid hours, will be considered delivered within 90 days from the date of the applicable Order Form.
Customer Property means Customer Confidential Information and Customer logos and trademarks that may be included in the Redis Materials.
Redis Materials means documents, templates, training materials, recordings and other items Redis may provide to Customer as part of the Consulting Services. All references to “Software” in the Agreement other than Section 2.1 and Appendix 1 will include “Redis Materials.”
Redis Tools means proprietary tools, libraries, know-how, techniques and expertise used by Redis to develop the Redis Materials. All references to Software in the Agreement other than Section 2.1 and Appendix 1 will include Redis Tools.
3.1 During the term of the Agreement, Redis shall have the right to use Customer Property solely for the purpose of providing the Consulting Services to Customer as set forth in a SOW. The Parties agree that performance of Consulting Services is contingent on Customer promptly providing the relevant Customer Property. Customer agrees that failure to timely provide the above may result in schedule or financial impacts (e.g., additional fees). In case of material impacts, Customer and Redis will negotiate and execute a change order to the SOW or, failing to reach an agreement, Redis may terminate the SOW without any liability for doing so. Termination will not relieve Customer of payment obligations for fees or expenses incurred prior to termination.
3.2 During and subject to the terms and conditions of the Agreement, Redis hereby provides Customer with a limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, non-transferable (except as stated in Section 10.2 of the Agreement), revocable license to use Redis Materials and Redis Tools solely for Customer’s internal operations in connection with its authorized use of the Software.
Regarding Consulting Services only, Redis warrants that: (a) it and each of the personnel it uses to provide and perform Consulting Services hereunder has the necessary knowledge, skills, experience, qualifications, and resources to provide and perform the Consulting Services, and (b) the Consulting Services will be performed for and delivered to Customer in a professional and work person-like manner. If through no fault or delay of Customer the Consulting Services do not conform to the foregoing warranty, and Customer notifies Redis within 7 days of Redis’ delivery of the Consulting Services, Redis will re-perform the non-conforming portions of the Consulting Services at no cost to Customer. THIS SECTION 4 SETS FORTH CUSTOMER’S EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS AND REMEDIES (AND REDIS’ SOLE LIABILITY) IN CONNECTION WITH THIS WARRANTY.
Unless otherwise stated in a SOW and/or Order Form, invoices will be submitted by Redis to Customer each calendar month for Consulting Services during the preceding month.
In the event of any conflict between the terms of this Agreement and a SOW, the terms of this Agreement will govern unless the intent to amend this Agreement is expressly stated in the SOW.
