End User will provide accurate, current and complete information when registering with Khosla Tech and ordering Products and agrees to update its information if it changes. This is important, because Khosla Tech may send notices, statements and other information to End User by email or through End User’s account (for Hosted Services).

End User may not install, access, configure or use any Embedded Software (including any APIs, tools, databases or other components of any Embedded Software) separately or independently of the rest of the Product, whether for production, technical support or any other purposes, or otherwise attempt to gain direct access to any Embedded Software components, or permit anyone else (including Customers) to do any of these things. Notwithstanding any other terms of this Agreement, End User may not modify any Embedded Software. End User will be financially responsible to the applicable third party licensor (“Embedded Software Licensor”) for all damages and losses resulting from End User’s or its Customers' breach of this Agreement. End User may not “benchmark” or otherwise analyze performance information for individual Embedded Software elements.
Some Embedded Software may include source code provided as part of the Embedded Software Licensor’s standard shipment. That source code will be governed by the terms for Embedded Software in this Agreement, and not the terms for Source Code in Section 2.5 (Source Code) above.
End User understands that the applicable Embedded Software Licensor retains all ownership and intellectual property rights to the Embedded Software.

In addition, End User agrees to the Embedded Software-related audit provisions in Section 6 (License Certifications and Audits) below.
Embedded Software may include or be accompanied by third party technology that may be appropriate or necessary for use with some Embedded Software. Such technology may be specified in the Documentation or otherwise specified by Khosla Tech, and is licensed to End User only for use with the Product with which it is provided under the specified third party license terms, and not this Agreement. Khosla Tech may also provide additional or substitute terms for Embedded Software if required by the Embedded Software Licensor, and End User will comply with those terms.
4.3 Rules for Plug-ins. End User may develop its own plug-ins for various Products (“End User Plug-ins”) and may distribute End User Plug-ins to third parties, but only for those Products permitted by Khosla Tech, and only in accordance with Khosla Tech’s published plug-in and API guidelines. End User Plug-ins distributed through the Khosla Tech Marketplace will be subject to the posted terms for the Khosla Tech Marketplace.

End User will not, and will not allow any Authorized User or other third party to: (a) resell, assign, rent, give, transfer, pass title to, lease, copy, provide access to or sublicense (including without limitation on a timeshare, subscription service, hosted service or outsourced basis) any Product to any third party (for use in its business operations or otherwise) or anyone else besides Authorized Users in accordance with this express terms of this Agreement, or permit anyone besides Authorized Users to use any data or information not owned by End User that is generated by the Products (and, in the event End User grants any security interest in any Products, the secured party has no right to use or transfer the Products); (b) reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, decipher, decrypt, or otherwise seek to discover or obtain the source code or non-public APIs to Products (including any data structure or similar materials produced by the Products), except to the extent expressly permitted by applicable law despite this prohibition (and then only upon advance notice to Khosla Tech); (c) modify, adapt or create derivative works of a Product to build products or services that resemble or compete with Khosla Tech’s products and services; (d) remove or obscure any proprietary or other notices of Khosla Tech or any third party contained in any Product (including any information or data generated by the Products); (e) publicly disseminate information regarding the performance and the security of Products; (f) use any Product for commercial solicitation purposes or spam; (g) use the Khosla Tech name or any Khosla Tech trademarks or logos without Khosla Tech’s prior written consent; or (h) commit any act or omission that could result in damage to Khosla Tech’s or its suppliers' or licensors' reputations. End User will not attempt to do any of the foregoing, encourage others to do so, or otherwise attempt to bypass or circumvent any usage restrictions in this Agreement.
4.5 Indemnification. End User will indemnify, defend and hold harmless Khosla Tech from and against any and all claims, costs, damages, losses, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees and costs) arising out of or in connection with any claim arising from or relating to (a) any breach by End User (including any Authorized Users) of this Agreement, (b) any End User Data, (c) any End User Modifications, End User Plug-ins or other modifications of or combinations with a Product, or any service or product offered by End User in connection with or related to a Product, (d) any Uncontrolled Systems, or (e) any representations or warranties made by End User (including any Authorized User) regarding a Product to third parties. This indemnification obligation is subject to End User receiving (i) prompt written notice of such claim (but in any event notice in sufficient time for End User to respond without prejudice); (ii) the exclusive right to control and direct the investigation, defense, or settlement of such claim, provided that Khosla Tech may participate in the claim at its own expense and End User may not settle any claim without Khosla Tech’s prior written consent; and (iii) all reasonable necessary cooperation of Khosla Tech at End User’s expense.

End User will continue to be charged during any period of suspension. In event of any termination, End User will pay the unpaid balance due calculated in accordance with this section and this Agreement. Khosla Tech may charge such unpaid fees and charges to End User’s credit card or otherwise bill End User for such unpaid fees and charges. End User acknowledges that it is not relying on the future availability of any Products (including any Embedded Software) in agreeing to or making its payments hereunder.
5.2 Taxes. Payments made by End User under this Agreement exclude any taxes or duties payable in respect of the Products in the jurisdiction where the payment is either made or received. To the extent that any such taxes or duties are payable by Khosla Tech, End User must pay to Khosla Tech the amount of such taxes or duties in addition to any fees owed under this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, End User may have obtained an exemption from relevant taxes or duties as of the time such taxes or duties are levied or assessed. In that case, End User will have the right to provide to Khosla Tech with any such exemption information and Khosla Tech will use reasonable efforts to provide such invoicing documents as may enable End User to obtain a refund or credit for the amount so paid from any relevant revenue authority if such a refund or credit is available.
6. License Certifications and Audits
Upon Khosla Tech’s written request, End User will provide Khosla Tech with a signed certification certifying that all Products are being used pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, including any access and user limitations. With prior reasonable notice of at least ten (10) days, Khosla Tech (or its authorized agent) may audit the use of the Products by End User and its Authorized Users and any Customers, provided such audit is during regular business hours. End User will provide reasonable assistance and access to information in the course of any audit. End User is responsible for such audit costs only in the event the audit reveals that End User’s use of the Products is not in accordance with the permitted scope of use. In the event that any certification or audit reveals that End User has exceeded its permitted number of Authorized Users, Khosla Tech may invoice End User for any past or ongoing excessive use and End User will pay the invoice in accordance with Section 5 (Fees and Payment). This remedy is without prejudice to any other remedies available to Khosla Tech at law or equity or under this Agreement.
End User understands that Khosla Tech may report audit results to any applicable Embedded Software Licensor or may assign the right to audit End User in this Section 6 to Embedded Software Licensors. When the audit is assigned, then notwithstanding anything else in this Agreement to the contrary, End User Licensor will not be responsible for End User’s costs incurred in cooperating with the audit.

Khosla Tech or its licensors own the title, copyright, and other intellectual property rights in the Products and all copies, modifications and derivative works of the Products and underlying software (including any incorporating Feedback) (“Khosla Tech Technology”), and End User does not acquire any ownership rights in Khosla Tech Technology. All Products are licensed, not sold.
“Feedback” means any feedback, comments, suggestions or materials (including, to the extent disclosed to Khosla Tech, any End User Modifications, but excluding End User Plug-ins) that End User may provide to Khosla Tech about or in connection with the Products, including any ideas, concepts, know-how or techniques contained therein. End User may provide Feedback in connection with Maintenance and otherwise. End User hereby grants Khosla Tech a worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive, perpetual and irrevocable license to use, copy, modify and otherwise exploit the Feedback for any purpose, including incorporating or implementing the Feedback in the Products.

The Receiving Party acknowledges that disclosure of Confidential Information would cause substantial harm for which damages alone would not be a sufficient remedy, and therefore that upon any such disclosure by the Receiving Party the Disclosing Party shall be entitled to appropriate equitable relief in addition to whatever other remedies it might have at law.
This Agreement will continue so long as End User has a license or a subscription to the Software and the Hosted Services, unless earlier terminated. Khosla Tech may suspend or terminate this Agreement and End User’s account, with respect to one or more of the Products, if End User fails to comply with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, including any failure to pay fees when due. Khosla Tech may terminate any free account or evaluation usage at any time in its sole discretion.
End User may terminate this Agreement at any time with notice to Khosla Tech.
