This Agreement shall be an integral part of such Order Form, setting forth the terms and conditions upon which the ScyllaDB shall render the Services (as defined below).
ScyllaDB may modify the terms set forth herein from time to time and such updated terms, once posted on ScyllaDB’s website, shall govern. We recommend that you periodically review the terms, to see if any changes were introduced as reflected in the “Last Updated” date hereinabove.
1.1. Subject to the terms and conditions hereunder, ScyllaDB shall provide Customer with its Cloud Database Management Services (“Services”) during such Subscription Term (as defined below) and subject to such terms set forth in the applicable order form executed by the parties (“Order Form”).
1.2.

1.3. Customer shall establish within the Customer Account and provide to ScyllaDB, at Customer’s cost and expense, with all required details, access, policies and permissions necessary to facilitate the rendering of Services with respect to the related Customer Account. The Customer shall ensure that ScyllaDB is authorized to access, use and/or interface with such Customer Account and the appropriate policies are defined, including, as it might relate to the terms of services of Third-Party Vendors. Without derogating from the generality of the foregoing, it is hereby agreed and understood that ScyllaDB shall not be responsible for any interruptions, unauthorized access, outages, errors or other damages arising out of or related to Third-Party Vendor’s platform or systems and/or are due to the actions or omissions of Customer or Third-Party Vendors, which hinder ScyllaDB’s ability to meet its obligations hereunder.
1.4. ScyllaDB shall provide support services to Customer with respect to the Services as set forth in the service level agreement, available at Scylla Cloud Service Level Agreement (“SLA”).

1.5.1. for scheduled maintenance where we have provided 30 days prior notice of such scheduled maintenance, or for unscheduled maintenance, where ScyllaDB shall provide the Customer with a notice as soon as practicable under the relevant circumstances. ScyllaDB shall exert best commercial efforts to ensure that any suspension of Services shall be limited to the minimal duration required; or
1.5.2. in the event Customer is in breach of this Agreement, (including, among others, breach of Use Restrictions or failure to pay the Fees). Nothing in this Section 1.5.2. shall limit ScyllaDB’s rights to terminate the Services in accordance with Section 12, due to and upon breach by the Customer.
1.6. Customer acknowledges and agrees that ScyllaDB is using the services and/or products of third-party partners or service providers to facilitate provisioning the Services.

EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE EXPLICITLY STATED HEREUNDER, CUSTOMER AGREES THAT SCYLLADB HAS MADE NO EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES TO IT REGARDING THE SERVICES AND THAT THE SERVICES ARE BEING PROVIDED TO CUSTOMER ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. SCYLLADB DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES WITH REGARD TO THE SERVICES; EXPRESS OR IMPLIED; INCLUDING; WITHOUT LIMITATION; ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE; BE TIMELY OR SECURE, MERCHANTABILITY; QUALITY OR NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD-PARTY RIGHTS. SCYLLADB DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICES WILL OPERATE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR FREE, OR THAT ALL ERRORS WILL BE CORRECTED, EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED HEREUNDER.
7.3. FURTHERMORE, SCYLLADB MAKES NO WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS WITH RESPECT TO THE CUSTOMER ACCOUNT AND, EXCEPT FOR SCYLLADB’S GROSS NEGLIGENCE OR WILLFUL MISCONDUCT, ASSUMES NO RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY FOR ANY: (I) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR USE OF THE CUSTOMER ACCOUNT AND/OR ANY AND ALL CUSTOMER DATA STORED THEREIN; (II) ANY INTERRUPTION OR CESSATION OF TRANSMISSION TO OR FROM THE CUSTOMER ACCOUNT; (III) ANY BUGS, VIRUSES, TROJAN HORSES, OR THE LIKE WHICH MAY BE TRANSMITTED TO OR THROUGH THE SERVICES THROUGH THE ACTIONS OF ANY THIRD PARTY; (VI) ANY LOSS OF CUSTOMER DATA OR INFORMATION FROM THE CUSTOMER ACCOUNT; OR (VII) CONSEQUENCES RELATED TO RESTRICTIONS, SUSPENSION OR TERMINATION OF THIRD PARTY PROVIDERS’ SERVICES TO CUSTOMER WITH RESPECT TO CUSTOMER ACCOUNT OR CUSTOMER DATA; AND/OR (VIII) OBLIGATIONS WITH RESPECT TO ANY BACKUP, SECURITY OR CONTINGENCY PLAN FOR THE CUSTOMER ACCOUNT OR CUSTOMER DATA; CUSTOMER WILL NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO MAKE OR PASS ON ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY ON BEHALF OF SCYLLADB TO ANY THIRD PARTY. SINCE SOME STATES AND JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON IMPLIED WARRANTIES, THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY. IN THAT EVENT, SUCH WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY, AND FOR THE MINIMUM WARRANTY PERIOD ALLOWED BY THE MANDATORY APPLICABLE LAW.
7.4. Except as expressly set forth in the Documentation, ScyllaDB represents and warrants that, to its knowledge, none of the Services contain any “Trojan horse”, “worm”, “trap door”, “malware” (as such terms are commonly understood in the computer software industry), or any other device or code designed to destroy, copy, collect or expose data or files without the knowledge and consent of the Customer, or otherwise designed to disrupt, damage, disable, impair or interfere with use of the computer on which such code resides or the other software programs on such computer.
Customer will defend, indemnify and hold harmless ScyllaDB, its officers, employees, directors and affiliates, harmless from any and all liabilities, losses, damages, judgments, claims, causes of action, costs, or expenses (including reasonable attorney’s fees) from and against any third-party claim, demand, damages or lawsuit arising out of or relating to (a) Customer’s breach of this Agreement; (b) Customer’s violation of Third-Party Providers internal regulation, contractual obligations and undertakings between the Customer and such Third-Party Provider or terms or service or any applicable laws or regulations in connection with the Services or Customer Account; or (c) Customer Data or the combination of the Customer Data with other applications, content or processes, including any claim involving alleged infringement or misappropriation of third-party rights by the Customer Data, and Customer will pay such damages or costs as are attributable to any such action. ScyllaDB will promptly notify Customer of any claim subject to this Section, but ScyllaDB’s failure to promptly notify Customer will affect Customer’s obligations only to the extent that ScyllaDB’s failure prejudices the Customer’s ability to defend the claim. Customer may: (a) use counsel of Customer’s own choosing (subject to ScyllaDB written consent) to defend against any claim; and (b) settle the claim, provided that Customer obtains ScyllaDB’s prior written consent before entering into any settlement.
