Licensee may use the Trial Software during the Evaluation Period solely for the purpose of evaluating whether to purchase a license to the Software. Licensee can only obtain one Evaluation Period per release of the Software unless Netwrix, in its sole discretion, grants an extension of the Evaluation Period. There is no fee for Licensee's use of the Software in accordance with this Agreement during the Evaluation Period, however, Licensee is responsible for any applicable shipping charges or taxes which may be incurred under this Agreement, and any fees which may be associated with usage beyond the scope permitted herein. Licensee acknowledges that it is downloading the Trial Software with the intent to purchase a license to use the Software upon completion of a successful Evaluation Period. Netwrix sales representative may contact Licensee after the download to discuss Licensee's purchase of a license.
1.1.2 Perpetual Software. The term of the license for Perpetual Software shall be perpetual, unless terminated or renewed in accordance with this Agreement or an amendment hereto.
1.1.3 Subscription Software.

Netwrix reserves the right to increase fees for each renewal, which increases will be communicated to Licensee prior to expiration of the then-current term. In the event a Subscription Term expires without renewing automatically or being otherwise renewed by Licensee, then Licensee must pay a fee equal to ten percent (10%) multiplied by the fees applicable to the last year of the most recent Subscription Term in order to reinstate its use of the Subscription Software (the “Subscription Reinstatement Fee”). For the avoidance of doubt, the Subscription Reinstatement Fee is in addition to fees for use of the Subscription Software itself.

Licensee may make a reasonable number of additional copies of the Software (excluding Trial Software) solely for non-productive, archival purposes; provided that, the original productive and non-productive copies of the same license are not in use at the same time and each copy contains all titles, trademarks, copyrights and restricted rights notices as in the original, and is not provided to any third party. The Software is provided in binary code only. Nothing in this Agreement entitles Licensee to receive source code for the Software.

If Licensee downloads the Software as an upgrade to an existing software product from Netwrix, Licensee agrees that the terms of this Agreement will apply to such software product, as upgraded and that these shall be the only terms and conditions applicable to such upgraded Software. Netwrix may update the terms of this Agreement at any time in its sole discretion. Netwrix will notify Licensee of any such updates and Licensee’s continued use of the Software after such notice will constitute Licensee’s agreement to the updated terms.

Where applicable, Licensee acknowledges that the Software includes a phone home capability that will periodically connect to the Internet and transmit license usage data to Netwrix for purposes of verifying Licensee’s compliance with this Agreement. The information collected by Netwrix may include the license key, the application(s) being audited with the Software, and the number of users/objects being audited with the Software (the “Phone Home Data”). If the Software does not include a phone home capability or Licensee disables the phone home capability, then Licensee shall, upon Netwrix’s request (which request may not be more frequently than annually), certify Licensee's usage of the Software and permit Netwrix to review Licensee's use of the Software for compliance with this Agreement. Any reviews shall be scheduled at least five (5) business days in advance, shall be conducted during normal business hours at Licensee's facilities, and shall not unreasonably interfere with Licensee's business activities. If Licensee's use of the Software is found to be greater than authorized by the applicable Order(s) (an “Overage”), such Overage will be deemed an Order for all licenses used in excess of the authorized quantity and Licensee will be invoiced for and agrees to pay for such additional licenses at the same per unit cost as the contracted quantity for the full Subscription Term or Maintenance Services Term, as applicable, in accordance with the terms of the Agreement.
1.9 Customer Experience Program. This Section 1.9 applies when the Software includes a customer experience program. Where applicable, Licensee agrees that, unless it opts-out during installation of the Software or changes its preferences in the Software settings after installation of the Software, in addition to any Phone Home Data collected by Netwrix as contemplated above, the Software will transmit user activity data and logs to Netwrix detailing statistical information about Licensee’s use of the Software and its functions, and aggregate usage data for the purposes of generating statistical metrics and analytics regarding use of the Software (collectively, “Usage Data”). Netwrix may use Usage Data to better understand the features and functionality Licensee’s users find useful for purposes of improving its products and services, and for its other internal business purposes. Netwrix will use such Usage Data as contemplated under this Agreement and otherwise in accordance with applicable law.

- Provide the Project Team with suitable business expertise, technical expertise, and decision-making authority to ensure efficient progress on the Project.
- On request, provide the Project Team manager with applicable documentation of Customer’s current business practices applicable to the Project.
3) Completion of Project Deliverables.
This Section 3 applies only to Fixed Price Projects. Following the completion and delivery of the Project Deliverable(s), Netwrix will notify Customer in writing that the Project Deliverable(s) have been performed or created and delivered. Within ten (10) calendar days of the delivery of the Project Deliverable(s) to Customer (the “Completion Acknowledgement Period”), if Customer determines that the Project Deliverable(s) have not been completed in substantial conformance with their descriptions in the Project Document, it will so notify Netwrix in writing and describe each non-conformance (“Notice of Non-Conformance”). Upon Netwrix’s receipt of a Notice of Non-Conformance, Netwrix will re-perform or re-create the non-conforming Project Deliverables and a new Completion Acknowledgment Period will begin upon delivery of the revised Project Deliverables. If Customer does not provide a Notice of Non-Conformance by the end of the Completion Acknowledgement Period, the Project Deliverables will be deemed completed. Nothing in this Section 2(e) will affect Customer’s rights under Section 4.3 of the Agreement.
4) Estimated Time.
This Section 4 applies only to T&M Projects. An Order for a T&M Project will contain the Time that Netwrix has estimated in good faith to be required to perform the Activities described in the Project Document for the T&M Project (“Estimated Time”). Netwrix shall use commercially reasonable efforts to complete the Activities within the Estimated Time; however, Netwrix does not represent or warrant that it can or shall do so. Netwrix shall promptly notify Customer if it determines that more Time shall be required to complete the planned Activities and shall not perform Activities beyond the Time without an executed modification to the relevant Order or Project Document (which modification may be approved by Customer via email or otherwise). Following Customer’s email or other approval, Netwrix may reallocate the Time stated in the relevant Order or Project Document among the various resources stated in the fees table of the Project Document, provided such reallocation does not exceed the Estimated Time set forth therein. Activities shall use Prepaid Time, if any, before non-Prepaid Time.
5) Fees and Expenses.
(a) Dates Valid. The prices stated in an Order for a Project are valid for Activities performed within six (6) months of the date of Customer’s execution of the Order. Any Prepaid Time for a T&M Project unused after six (6) months from the date of the last signature on the Order and Project Document shall expire without the right of refund. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the right to use the JumpStart Services will expire ninety (90) calendar days following purchase of the JumpStart Services.
(b) Normal Business Hours, Weekends, and Holidays. Unless otherwise agreed by Netwrix and Customer, all work on the Project shall be performed Workdays between the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. in Customer’s local time (“Normal Business Hours”). Upon mutual agreement by Netwrix and Customer, Netwrix may work more than eight (8) hours in a Workday, four (4) ten-hour Workdays in a calendar week, after Normal Business Hours, or on Non-Workdays (each “Abnormal Hours”). Customer requests for Netwrix to perform work for a Project on Non-Workdays must be scheduled at least fifteen (15) days in advance and be for a minimum of one (1) Day. For billing purposes under an Order for a T&M Project, (i) a Workday on which Netwrix works ten (10) hours is equal to, and billable as, one and one quarter (1.25) Days; (ii) a week in which Netwrix works four (4) ten-hour Workdays is equal to, and billable as, five (5) Days, (iii) work performed after Normal Business Hours or on a Non-Workday which is a weekend day, are billable as one and one half (1.5) hours shall be charged for each hour outside of Normal Business Hours, and (iv) and work performed on a Non-Workday which is a holiday, are billable as two (2) Days. If work is performed using Prepaid Time after Normal Business Hours or on a Non-Workday, one and one half (1.5) hours shall be used from the Estimated Time for each hour outside of Normal Business Hours, the Estimated Time shall be used at the rate of one and one half (1.5) Days for each Non-Workday which is a weekend on which Activities are performed and two (2) Days for each Non-Workday which is a holiday on which Activities are performed.
6) Non-Restrictive Relationship
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Netwrix may provide the same or similar services to other customers and Customer may utilize other information technology service providers that are competitive with Netwrix.
