Last Updated: March 4, 2020
This Built by Zendesk Application Agreement (“Agreement”) is made between Zendesk, Inc. and its Affiliates, (collectively, “Zendesk”) and You. By accepting this Agreement or by using the Application (as defined below), You represent and acknowledge that You have read, understood, and agree to be bound by this Agreement as it governs Your use of and access to the Application. The Application made available to You pursuant to this Agreement may only be utilized and tested in association with a subscription to a Service provided by Zendesk to You (as those terms are defined in the Master Subscription Agreement available at https://www.zendesk.com/company/customers-partners/master-subscription-agreement/ unless there is a separately negotiated agreement between You and Zendesk (the “Master Subscription Agreement”)). Your use of a Service provided by Zendesk shall be governed by the Master Subscription Agreement. Your use of the Application shall be governed by this Agreement. By entering into this Agreement, You represent and warrant that You have the authority to bind the owner, and all Agents authorized under the account for the Service (the “Account”) to the Agreement. If the Account is owned, controlled or operated by or on behalf of a company or another legal entity, You represent that You have the authority to bind such entity and its affiliates to this Agreement, in which case the terms “You” shall refer to such entity and its affiliates. If You do not have such authority, or if You do not agree to the terms herein, You must not accept this Agreement or use the integration. Capitalized terms used in this Agreement and not defined herein shall have the meaning set forth in the Master Subscription Agreement.
1. SCOPE OF AGREEMENT
You are being invited by Zendesk to access and use an application developed by Zendesk that may utilize and interact with the API and a Non-Zendesk Service (“Non-Zendesk Service”) provided by a third party (“Third Party”) in connection with Your Account (“Application”). If applicable in the Application, Your use of the Non-Zendesk Service will be governed by Your agreement with the Third Party and Zendesk is not responsible for the actions of the Third Party. The Non-Zendesk Service is developed, operated, and maintained by the Third Party and includes any ancillary products and services that the Third Party provides to You. Zendesk shall retain sole and absolute discretion as to whether the Application will be made available to You. You are not required to utilize or enable the Application, but if You elect to do so, Your use of and access to the Application shall be subject to the terms of this Agreement. Zendesk may charge for use and access to the Application or may provide the Application for no charge. Zendesk reserves the right to start charging or revise fee amounts at any time, at its sole discretion, under this Agreement or after the Application is incorporated into the Service. You acknowledge that Your use of the Application is governed by this Agreement and that the Master Subscription Agreement (including any terms related to Deployed Associated Services) does not apply to the Application.
2.1 You acknowledge and agree that in permitting access to and use of the Application, Zendesk will be disclosing to You certain confidential, proprietary and/or trade secret information related to the Application or Zendesk (the “Confidential Information”). Such Confidential Information shall include, without limitation, any know how, trade secrets, computer programs, source code, flowcharts, diagrams, manuals, schematics, development tools, specifications, design documents, marketing information, financial information or business plans, or reports made available to You.
2.2 You agree that You will not, without the express prior written consent of Zendesk, disclose any Confidential Information or any part thereof to any third party, except to the extent that such Confidential Information (i) is or becomes generally available to the public through any means other than as a result of any act or omission by You; (ii) is rightfully received by You from a third party that is not subject to any obligation of confidentiality with respect thereto and without limitation as to its use; or (iii) is independently developed by You without any reliance on any Confidential Information.
2.3 At the termination of this Agreement or at any time by request of Zendesk, You will return all Confidential Information in Your possession to Zendesk. You also agree that You will not duplicate, translate, modify, copy, print, disassemble, decompile or otherwise tamper with the Application or any Confidential Information.
3. RIGHTS TO ACCESS AND USE
You acknowledge that You shall have only a limited, nonexclusive, nontransferable, revocable, license to access and use the Application in connection with an Account that You control to test its functionality and provide Feedback (as defined below) to Zendesk as requested. Your license to access and use the Application may be revoked at any time at the sole discretion of Zendesk.
You may provide Zendesk with suggestions, recommendations and other feedback as to the usefulness and functionality of the Application (“Feedback”). Zendesk shall have a royalty-free, worldwide, transferable, sub-licensable, irrevocable and perpetual license to incorporate into the Application, Service, or otherwise use, any suggestions, enhancement requests, recommendations or other Feedback Zendesk receives from You, Agents or End Users.
Either party may terminate this Agreement upon written notice to the other party at any time on ten (10) days written notice (email sufficing). If not earlier terminated, Your obligations and rights pursuant to Section 3 shall terminate upon termination of this Agreement; provided that the foregoing shall not limit Zendesk’s rights pursuant to Section 3 as related to any Feedback provided before or after such termination. Sections 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13 and all obligations thereunder, shall survive any termination of this Agreement.
Zendesk maintains all rights, title and interest in and to all its patents, inventions, copyrights, trademarks, domain names, trade secrets, know-how and any other intellectual property and/or proprietary rights (collectively, “Intellectual Property Rights”). The rights granted to You to access and use the Application under this Agreement do not convey any additional rights in the Application, or in any Intellectual Property Rights associated therewith.
