The terms of this Section 4 (Orders) will apply to all Order Forms except as may be expressly stated otherwise in the applicable Order Form or elsewhere in this Agreement. As used in this Section 4 (Orders), the term Order Form will include “Work Orders” as that term is defined in the Reciprocal Subcontractor Sub-Type Appendix
- Prices. Benefits available to Participant under the Program will be listed in the Guide, which will specify the fee, if any, for the benefit. Unless otherwise provided in the Guide, a specified discount will be construed as a discount relative to the prices on ThoughtSpot’s standard price list, as updated from time to time. Discounts cited in a Guide, the Opportunity Registration Terms or related partner documentation are in lieu of, and may not be combined with, any other discounts offered by ThoughtSpot, contractually or through special promotions
- Order Forms. To the extent permitted under the applicable Sub-Type Appendix, Participant may initiate an order of Product or Consulting Services by executing an Order Form with ThoughtSpot. ThoughtSpot may accept or reject any Order Form for any reason. Upon execution by the parties, each Order Form is non-cancellable, non-refundable and not contingent upon resale or acceptance by a Customer. Prices stated in each Order Form are final. All Order Forms are governed exclusively by the terms and conditions of this Agreement (except for Order Forms that expressly reference a different agreement signed by the parties that governs Participant’s own use of ThoughtSpot products or services).
- Price Updates. ThoughtSpot may from time to time update its price lists and discount schedules. Changes to prices or discounts do not apply to, amend, or modify, any Order Form signed by the parties, regardless of whether Participant had notice of the changes when ThoughtSpot provided the Order Form for signature. It is Participant’s responsibility to confirm before signing an Order Form that the Order Form reflects the current prices and discounts to which Participant may be entitled, and Participant should request from ThoughtSpot a revised Order Form if necessary. Neither party is obligated to provide any refund, credit, or revised pricing for an Order Form that contains prices or discounts different from those to which Participant is eligible at the time of issue or execution of the Order Form.
- Invoices and Payment. ThoughtSpot will electronically issue the initial invoice to Participant corresponding with each Order Form upon the provision of administrative credentials for use of the applicable Product. Each Order Form is a non-divisible, continuous commitment, regardless of the invoice schedule, and pricing is based on a purchase of the entire term of product access described in the Order Form. Unless otherwise indicated in an Order Form, fees for Consulting Services are offered on a fixed-fee basis and invoiced upon signature of the corresponding Order Form. The ordering party will pay each invoice in full, within 30 days after the invoice date. Late payments will accrue interest at a rate of 1.5% per month or the legal maximum, whichever is lower. A party providing subcontracted services may suspend the delivery of the subcontracted services while any payment is delinquent. Payments will be made free of any currency controls or other restrictions, by check or wire transfer, to the address or bank account designated by the other party. A party may not reduce any amount payable to the other party under this Agreement due to any counterclaim, set-off, adjustment, or other claim Participant might have against the other party, any other party, or otherwise.
- Taxes. Amounts payable under this Agreement are stated exclusive of all taxes, duties, levies, imposts, fines, or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including, for example, sales, use, GST, withholding, value-added, or similar taxes, imposed by any jurisdiction, and the interest and penalties on any of these (collectively, “Taxes”). Participant will pay all Taxes associated with the transactions, access, and use, contemplated by this Agreement except Taxes based on ThoughtSpot’s net income, property, or employees. If ThoughtSpot has the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which Customer is responsible under this Section 4.6, ThoughtSpot will invoice Participant and Participant will pay that amount unless Participant provides ThoughtSpot with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority prior to execution of the applicable Order Form. Taxes will not be deducted from payments to ThoughtSpot, except as required by Law, in which case Participant will increase the amount payable as necessary so that, after making all required deductions and withholdings, ThoughtSpot receives and retains (free from any liability for Taxes) an amount equal to the amount it would have received had no such deductions or withholdings been made. Upon ThoughtSpot’s request, Participant will provide to ThoughtSpot its proof of withholding tax remittance to the respective tax authority.

Participant’s access rights and limitations on access and liabilities with regard to the Evaluation Subscription will otherwise be as described in the ThoughtSpot Cloud Subscription Agreement available at https://www.thoughtspot.com/legal/ at the time of Participant’s access (“CSA”), in which “Participant” will mean Customer as defined in the CSA. Exclusively applicable to Participant’s use of the Evaluation Subscription as described in this Section 5.1, the CSA is expressly incorporated into this Agreement by this reference, and in the event of any conflict between the terms of the CSA and this Agreement, the terms of this Agreement will govern to the extent of such conflict as it pertains to Participant’s use of the Evaluation Subscription. Except as modified in this Section 5.1 which will supersede the terms of the CSA, the CSA will exclusively govern all rights and obligations of Participant and ThoughtSpot regarding access to ThoughtSpot Cloud under this Agreement, including regarding any third-party access provided by Participant. Notwithstanding any limitation on ThoughtSpot’s obligations with respect to third-party claims in the CSA, the protections against third-party claims as described in Section 7.1 (ThoughtSpot Obligation) apply to Participant’s use of the Evaluation Subscription as described in this Section 5.1. Termination of this Agreement will concurrently terminate the CSA, and the “effects of termination” described in the CSA will apply accordingly.

This Section 4.2 will apply to Pre-Release Product notwithstanding any contrary provision in this Agreement. ThoughtSpot may terminate any rights to Pre-Release Product at any time upon written notice to Participant, in ThoughtSpot’s sole discretion.

Participant may not use the ThoughtSpot Trademarks in any manner that would indicate, or could be interpreted as, endorsement or sponsorship by ThoughtSpot of any product or service offered by Participant or any third party.

Subject to Section 6.2 (Exceptions), the receiving party will hold in confidence, and not disclose to any third party, any of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information. The receiving party will use at least the same degree of care in handling the disclosing party’s Confidential Information as it uses to protect its own Confidential Information, but no less than reasonable care except with regard to source code (if any is received) and Pre-Release Product, which must be kept in strict confidence. The receiving party will notify disclosing party immediately on becoming aware of any unauthorized use or release of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information. The receiving party may disclose the disclosing party’s Confidential Information to those of its Affiliates, directors, advisors, employees, or contractors (collectively, “Representatives”) who have a need to know such Confidential Information to perform under or in relation to this Agreement, but only if such Representatives are subject to a binding, written agreement no less protective of disclosing party than the confidentiality terms of this Agreement.

- Ownership. As between the parties, ThoughtSpot, ThoughtSpot Affiliates, and its and their suppliers and licensors own all right, title, and interest in and to all IPR in (and in all copies of) the Product, Collateral and Documentation, regardless of the form or media in or on which the original or other copies may subsequently exist.

The Products are licensed and not sold.

Each party’s obligations under this Section 7 are expressly conditioned on the party claiming protection against a Claim: (a) notifying the other party promptly of any actual or threatened Claim; (b) giving the other party sole control of the defense of such Claim and any related settlement negotiations; and (c) cooperating and, at the other party’s reasonable request and expense, assisting in such defense. Neither party will stipulate, acknowledge, or admit fault or liability on the other party’s behalf, or publicize any settlement, without the other party’s prior written consent (which will not be unreasonably withheld or delayed). This Section 7 (Third-Party Claims) states each party’s entire liability and the other party’s exclusive remedy for third-party claims and third-party actions.
Limitations of Liability.
- Limitation of Liability. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, EACH PARTY’S TOTAL, CUMULATIVE LIABILITY ARISING IN ANY WAY OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY, WILL BE LIMITED TO DIRECT DAMAGES INCURRED IN REASONABLE RELIANCE IN AN AMOUNT NOT EXCEEDING, FOR ALL CLAIMS IN THE AGGREGATE, THE AMOUNTS PAID OR PAYABLE BY PARTICIPANT UNDER THIS AGREEMENT FOR THE PRODUCT OR SERVICE GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM DURING THE 12-MONTH PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRIOR TO THE MOST RECENT EVENT GIVING RISE TO THE LIABILITY.

The parties, and not their Affiliates, suppliers, or licensors, are wholly responsible for any liabilities hereunder.
- Gross Negligence; Willful Misconduct. As provided by Law, nothing in this Agreement is intended or may be construed to limit a party’s liability in an action in tort (separate and distinct from a cause of action for a breach of this Agreement) for a party’s gross negligence or willful misconduct.
- Partner Code of Conduct. Participant acknowledges that it has read, understands and will abide by the Partner Code of Conduct, including any insurance minimums therein, which is hereby incorporated into this Agreement by this reference. ThoughtSpot may, from time to time upon 30 days’ notice to Participant, amend the Partner Code of Conduct on a going forward and non-discriminatory basis, in ThoughtSpot’s sole discretion. If Participant does not agree to an amendment, its recourse will be to terminate this Agreement in accordance with Section 3.2 (Termination for Convenience).
- Participating Affiliates. Participant may provide to ThoughtSpot a list of certain Participant Affiliates that will conduct business under this Agreement. The list of Participant Affiliates must be sent in writing to [email protected] and signed by Participant’s authorized signatory with authority to bind Participant to legal obligations and commit funds on Participant’s behalf. ThoughtSpot will review the list of Participant Affiliates provided and respond with an acceptance email as described in Section 2.1 (Appointment) for each listed Participant Affiliate, including the respective Territory and Program sub-type for each. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the licenses, access and rights granted to Participant under this Agreement shall also be granted to the accepted Participant Affiliates listed in the signature block as “Participating Affiliates.” Participant agrees to be jointly and severally liable for all obligations, acts, and omissions of each listed Participant Affiliate accepted by ThoughtSpot into the Program as if such Participant Affiliate were Participant.
- Compliance with Law. Each party will comply with all Law in its performance of this Agreement. In particular, neither party will make any payments or transfers of value which have the purpose or effect of public or commercial bribery, acceptance or acquiescence in extortion, kickbacks, or other unlawful or improper means of obtaining business in violation of law, including the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the U.S. Federal Anti-Kickback Statute or other law that prohibits the giving, accepting, soliciting (i.e., asking for) or arranging items of value in any form (e.g., gifts, certain discounts or cross-referrals between parties), either directly or indirectly for the purpose of inducing or rewarding another party for referrals of services paid for by a government program, or in violation of any other statutes, regulation or law that would render any arrangement under this Agreement illegal.
- Export Compliance. Each party will comply with local and foreign export control Law, including U.S. export control Law. The Product is subject to U.S. Export Administration Regulations (“EAR”) and Participant will comply with EAR. Without limiting the foregoing, Participant represents and warrants that: (a) it is not located in, and will not use any Product from, any country subject to U.S. export restrictions (currently including Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, Syria, and Crimea Region); (b) Participant will not use the Product in the design, development, or production of nuclear, chemical, or biological weapons, or rocket systems, space launch vehicles, sounding rockets, or unmanned air vehicle systems; and (c) Participant is not prohibited from participating in U.S. export transactions by any federal agency of the U.S. government. In addition, Participant is responsible for complying with any local Law that may impact Participant’s right to import, export, or use the Product or any of them.
- Waiver Amendment. No delay or failure by either party to exercise any right under this Agreement will waive that or any other right. A waiver of any breach of this Agreement is not a waiver of any other breach. Any waiver must be in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the waiving party. Any amendment to this Agreement must be in writing and signed by authorized representatives of both parties.
- Assignment. Neither party will assign, delegate, or otherwise transfer this Agreement, or any of its rights or duties under it, to a third party without the other’s prior written consent, which will not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned, or delayed. Any purported transaction in breach of this Section 10.2 is material and is void. Each party is, however, deemed to have consented to any such assignment, delegation, or transfer to: (a) an Affiliate; or (b) any entity that acquires all or substantially all of its capital stock or assets related to this Agreement through purchase, merger, consolidation, or otherwise, but only if such entity is not a direct competitor of the non-assigning party. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will bind and benefit the parties, their successors, and permitted assigns.
- Compliance Review. Participant shall retain records of its activities under this Agreement for at least four years in accordance with its customary and reasonable business practices. During the term of this Agreement and for one year thereafter, ThoughtSpot will have the right to audit Participant’s records relating to its performance under this Agreement and to verify that Participant has fulfilled its obligations under this Agreement. Any such audit will be conducted during normal business hours on a date mutually acceptable to both parties, and ThoughtSpot must provide at least ten business days’ prior notice. Participant agrees to review the audit results with ThoughtSpot and, if any underpayments are owed, pay such amounts upon receipt of an invoice from ThoughtSpot as described herein. The audit will be conducted at ThoughtSpot’s expense, unless the audit reveals that Participant has materially breached its obligations hereunder, in which case Participant shall promptly reimburse ThoughtSpot for its reasonable expenses incurred in connection with such audit. Such audits will be conducted no more than once in any period of twelve consecutive months, or twice during the same time period in the event that an audit reveals a material breach of Participant’s obligations hereunder.
- Notices. All notices and other communications under this Agreement will be: (a) in writing; (b) in English; and (c) deemed given when delivered (or the first business day after delivery with confirmation of receipt, for notices permitted by email). Notices under this Agreement will be sufficient only if: (i) personally delivered; (ii) delivered by a major commercial rapid delivery courier service with tracking capabilities; (iii) mailed by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested, to a party at the address stated in this Agreement (or at such address as the recipient has notified the other party of, before notice was sent); or (iv) sent via email, if the recipient’s email address is provided in this Agreement, in the application website where this Agreement was accepted, or in the Partner Portal (but email will not be sufficient for notices regarding a Claim or alleged breach). All notices except for ordinary business communications will be cc’d to the address stated in this Agreement.
- Dispute Resolution. This Agreement and performance under it will be governed by the substantive laws of the State of California, disregarding its conflict of law rules. If federal jurisdiction exists over any suit, action, or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the parties consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in San Francisco, California. If not, the parties consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the California state courts sitting in Santa Clara County, California. In any such suit, action, or proceeding, the prevailing party may recover its reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs, and other expenses, including those on appeal or in a bankruptcy action.
- Force Majeure. Neither party will be responsible for any delay or failure in its performance of any obligation under this Agreement (other than payment) due to causes beyond its reasonable control, but only if the party invoking this Section 10.6 promptly notifies the other party and resumes performance promptly when conditions allow it to do so.
- Relationship. The parties are independent contractors. Nothing in this Agreement will be construed to create a partnership, joint venture, agency, or other relationship. Neither party has any right or authority to assume or create any obligation of any kind, express or implied, in the other party’s name or on its behalf, or to represent that it has such right or authority. Participant agrees that it is not entitled to any benefits ThoughtSpot may offer to its employees, such as group insurance or other employment benefits. Participant is solely responsible for filing all its tax returns and submitting all tax payments as required by the applicable taxing authorities arising from any payments to Participant under this Agreement. There are no third-party beneficiaries to this Agreement. ThoughtSpot’s licensors will have no liability of any kind under this Agreement.
- Severability. If any part of this Agreement is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, that part will be deemed reformed to effectuate the parties’ intentions, and the rest of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect.
- Construction. Section headings are intended solely for convenience and will not affect the meaning of this Agreement. This Agreement will be interpreted according to its plain meaning without presuming it should favor either party. Unless stated or context requires otherwise: (a) all internal references are to this Agreement and its parties; (b) first-level section references (e.g., “as provided in Section 1”) include all subordinate subsections (e.g., 1.1, 1.2, etc.) within that section; (c) all monetary amounts are expressed and, if applicable, payable, in U.S. dollars; (d) “days” means calendar days; (e) “may” means that the applicable party has a right, but not a concomitant duty; (f) “partner,” if used in this Agreement or related documents, is used in its common, marketing sense and does not imply a partnership; (g) “notify” means to give notice under (and “notice” means a notice that complies with) Section 10.4 (Notices); (h) “current” or “currently” means “as of the Effective Date” but “then-current” means the present time when the applicable right is exercised or performance rendered or measured; (i) URLs are understood to also refer to successors, localizations, and information or resources linked from within websites at such URLs; (j) lists of examples following “including”, “e.g.”, “such as”, “excludes”, “for example”, or similar words are deemed to include “without limitation”; (k) the word “or” is deemed to be an inclusive “or”; and (l) a party’s choices under this Agreement are in its sole discretion. Any translation of the English-language version of this Agreement is for convenience only, and the English-language version will govern. If Participant is domiciled in Canada, the parties expressly wish to execute this Agreement and any associated documentation in English.
- Entire Agreement. This Agreement sets forth the complete and exclusive agreement between the parties relating to its subject matter and supersedes all prior oral and written agreements, understandings, and communications (including any requests for quote, requests for information, requests for proposal, or the like), regarding its subject matter. This Agreement incorporates by this reference all of the numbered sections herein (“Main Body”) as well as the terms and conditions of all Order Forms, the Sub-Type Appendices, the Guide, the Opportunity Registration Terms, and the Code of Conduct.

Participant agrees that any terms and conditions in any purchase order submitted by Participant to ThoughtSpot are superseded and replaced by the terms and conditions of this Agreement, and such purchase order terms and conditions will have no force or effect. Invoices issued by ThoughtSpot will be effective solely to specify the charges for the Product and Consulting Services. All other terms and conditions printed or included on, or referenced in, such purchase orders, invoices, and other ordering documents or correspondence, that purport to add to or modify the terms of this Agreement are expressly rejected by the parties and will be of no force or effect.
