BY EXECUTING AN ORDER FORM, END USER EXPRESSLY ACCEPTS AND AGREES TO THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU ARE AN INDIVIDUAL AGREEING TO THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT ON BEHALF OF AN ENTITY, SUCH AS YOUR EMPLOYER, YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU HAVE THE LEGAL AUTHORITY TO BIND THAT ENTITY AND “END USER” SHALL REFER HEREIN TO SUCH ENTITY. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE SUCH AUTHORITY, OR IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, YOU MUST NOT EXECUTE THE ORDER FORM AND MAY NOT USE THE LICENSED SOFTWARE OR THE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES (EACH AS DEFINED BELOW).
Capitalized terms shall have the meanings set forth in Exhibit A.
1.1 Licensed Software. Subject to End User’s timely payment of the Subscription Fee and compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Tigera hereby grants End User a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sub-licensable license during the applicable Subscription Term to install, copy and use the Licensed Software for End User’s internal business purposes, in connection with the deployment of no more than the number of Instances as are set forth in the Order Form.
1.2 OSS. If applicable, OSS is distributed or made available under the terms of the open source license agreements referenced in the applicable distribution or the applicable help, notices, about or source files. Copyrights and other proprietary rights to the OSS are held by the copyright holders identified in the applicable distribution or the applicable help, notices, about or source files.
1.3 License Authorization Code. End User shall not destroy, disable or circumvent, or attempt to destroy, disable or circumvent in any way the Authorization Code and/or the use and time limitations set by the Authorization Code or the Licensed Software. End User acknowledges and agrees that any attempt to exceed the use of the Licensed Software beyond the limits configured into the Authorization Code will automatically and immediately terminate the licenses granted under this Agreement.
2.1 Subscription Services. Subject to End User’s timely payment of the Subscription Fee and compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Tigera shall provide to End User the Subscription Services during the Subscription Term. End User must purchase Subscription Services corresponding to the number of Instances specified in the Order Form. End User must purchase the same level of Subscription Services with respect to all such Instances. In addition, the End User may not use Instances of OSS that has not been identified on an Order Form, on computers and or servers that are part of the environment in which Subscription Services are provided. Unless renewed, the Subscription Services will expire at the end of the applicable Subscription Term. This means that while the End User is free to use the OSS after the expiration of the applicable Subscription Term, Tigera will not provide the Subscription Services after the end of the applicable Subscription Term.
2.2 Renewal. Unless otherwise stated in the applicable Order Form, or canceled by End User no later than 30 days prior to each Renewal Date, the subscription shall automatically renew for another renewal subscription term.
2.3 Subscription Fee Payment. Payment of the Subscription Fee shall be made by End User as set forth in the applicable Order Form. All payments by End User to Tigera hereunder shall be made free and clear of and without reduction for all applicable sales or use, goods and services, value added, consumption or other similar fees or taxes imposed by any government (other than taxes on the net income of Tigera), which shall be paid by End User. Accordingly, if End User is required to withhold any taxes on the amounts payable to Tigera hereunder, End User shall pay Tigera such additional amounts as are necessary to ensure receipt by Tigera of the full amount which Tigera would have received but for the deduction on account of such withholding. End User shall provide Tigera with official receipts issued by the appropriate governmental agency or such other evidence as is reasonably requested by Tigera to establish that such taxes have been paid. Where applicable law requires End User to self-assess or reverse-charge any taxes, End User shall be responsible for complying with such law. In such a case, End User undertakes to provide Tigera with End User’s valid VAT registration number that is relevant to the software and service provided under the terms of this Agreement. The amounts of any taxes required to be paid by Tigera will be added to Tigera’s invoice, and End User shall promptly remit such amounts to Tigera, as the collection agent, upon invoice.
2.4 Support from Tigera’s Business Partners. In some cases, End Users may also receive support services, as part of the purchased Subscription Services, from a Tigera authorized business partner (each, a “Tigera Authorized Business Partner”). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 2.1, if End User purchases support services from a Tigera Authorized Business Partner, Tigera shall have no obligation to provide any support services to the End User and End User should work with that Tigera Authorized Business Partner to obtain all support services for the Supported Software.

Upon prior notice, Tigera or its representative may inspect such records to confirm End User’s compliance with the terms of this Agreement.
