Online Services Agreement
Online Services Agreement
Welcome to Jupiter Intelligence! Jupiter develops and provides climate risk data (“Jupiter Data”) through its cloud-based software platform (the “Platform Services”), helping companies to understand and plan for the impact of climate change on their businesses, assets, portfolios and supply chains. Jupiter Data pertains to individual physical locations identified by a single latitude/longitude (each, a “Location”) and consists of analytics developed by Jupiter concerning specified climate perils. Jupiter Data and the Platform Services are referred to below, collectively, as the “Data Service.”
Customer wishes to use the Data Service, pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Online Service Agreement (this “Agreement”). In consideration of the foregoing, the parties hereby agree as follows:
1.1 Customer Orders. Customer will execute a written order (each, a “Customer Order”) containing the specific terms and conditions relating to Customer’s use of the Data Service. Each Customer Order will be governed by this Agreement automatically.
1.2 Data Service.
(a) Provision of Service. Jupiter will provide the Data Service in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and the applicable Customer Order. Customer will use the Data Service only in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Customer will ensure that Customer’s account information is accurate and complete and will be updated by Customer during the term of the Agreement as needed to maintain accuracy and completeness.
(b) Platform Services. Jupiter will provide the Platform Services in accordance with its documentation (including all reasonable written instructions provided by Jupiter, the “Documentation”). Additionally, Jupiter will provide the service levels and support in connection with Customer’s use of the Platform Services pursuant to the Service Level Addendum and Support Terms set forth in Exhibit A below.
(c) Authorized Use. Customer will give access to the Data Service only to its employees and independent contractors who are working in furtherance of the licensed uses described in Section 2.1 (Grants) (“Authorized Users”). Customer will be able to identify each Authorized User given access to the Data Service and will provide such information to Jupiter upon Jupiter’s reasonable request. Customer will ensure that Authorized Users do not share credentials and acknowledges that apparent sharing of credentials may result in individual accounts losing access to the Platform Services. Customer will be solely responsible for all use of the Data Service under its account, including the acts and omissions of any Authorized Users. Customer will protect its account against any unauthorized access and will notify Jupiter immediately if Customer becomes aware of any unauthorized use, disclosure or other compromise of Customer’s account.
(a) Overview. Below are the licenses to Jupiter Data provided to Customer under this Agreement and the applicable Customer Order. The Jupiter Data licensed to Customer under this Section 2.1 is referred to as the “Licensed Data.” The Licensed Data relates specifically to the Locations that Customer is allowed to access through the Platform Services (the “Licensed Locations”). The number of Licensed Locations is listed in the Customer Order.
Customer is granted three types of licenses under each Customer Order: (1) a license allowing Customer to use Licensed Data internally (the “Permitted Internal Use License”); (2) a disclosure license allowing Customer to disclose certain Licensed Data (the “Permitted Disclosure License”); and (3) a license to create Customer’s own data sets based on the Licensed Data (the “Derived Data License”).
Each license is subject to the limitations stated in the applicable Customer Order (the “Limitations”). As such, each license grant must be read in conjunction with the Limitations. The Limitations in the Customer Order will reference two forms of Jupiter Data: “Output,” which means, collectively, the data points and risk scores (both individual and aggregate) obtained through the Platform Services relating to a specified Location; and “Visualizations,” which means, collectively, the graphical representations of Output obtained through the Platform Services.
In addition to the Limitations, each license below is conditioned on Customer’s continued compliance with its obligations under Section 3 (Payment) and Section 5 (Restrictions).
(b) Permitted Internal Use License. Subject to the terms of this Section 2.1, Jupiter hereby grants Customer a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license to access Licensed Data through the Platform Services and to use the Licensed Data on a perpetual basis solely for Customer’s own internal business purposes including analysis, modeling and planning; provided that, such access and use is limited to the Licensed Locations and may be limited to the number of Authorized Users, the specified business unit or division of Customer or other conditions set forth in the Customer Order.
(c) Permitted Disclosure License. Subject to the terms of this Section 2.2, Jupiter hereby grants Customer a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, perpetual license to disclose: (i) Output, provided that the cumulative Output disclosed by Customer does not exceed 10% of the Output provided to Customer under the applicable Customer Order; and (ii) Visualizations.
(d) Derived Data License. Subject to the terms of this Section 2.1, Jupiter hereby grants Customer a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, perpetual license to the use Licensed Data to create Derived Data and to use and disclose the Derived Data as determined by Customer. “Derived Data” means data created by combining Licensed Data with other non-Jupiter data to create new data sets where any Output is not separable or discernable from the new data set.
2.2 Jupiter Trademark License. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the applicable Customer Order, Jupiter hereby grants Customer a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, perpetual license to use Jupiter’s trademarks and service marks (each, a “Jupiter Mark”) solely as needed to perform any attribution requirements set forth in the applicable Customer Order. Where the Jupiter Marks used consist of logos or graphics, such use will be in accordance with those trademark guidelines provided by Jupiter to Customer. All use of the Jupiter Marks will inure to the benefit of Jupiter.
2.3 Notification of Non-Compliance. In the event Customer becomes aware of any non-compliance with the licensing terms set forth in Section 2.1 (Grants) or Section 2.2 (Trademark License), then Customer will promptly notify Jupiter and the parties will work together to address the non-compliance, including, if applicable, negotiation of additional Customer Orders to address such non-compliant activities.
2.4 Professional Services. Jupiter will provide any mutually agreed Professional Services in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and the applicable SOW. Unless otherwise expressly stated in the applicable SOW, all data provided to Customer under any SOW will be deemed “Licensed Data” for all purposes of this Agreement. All Professional Services will be deemed accepted by Customer on delivery unless otherwise agreed in the applicable SOW. Any changes to the terms of a mutually agreed SOW must be agreed in writing by both parties.
3.1 Fees and Payment Terms. Customer will pay the fees further described in each Customer Order or SOW as applicable (the “Fees”). All Fees are non-refundable and are payable net thirty days from the applicable invoice date.
3.2 Interest and Collection. Jupiter will notify Customer in the event Customer fails to pay any amount due in accordance with the terms of this Section 3. If any undisputed amount due to Jupiter is not paid within fourteen days of such notice, then, until such amounts are paid in full, Jupiter may charge interest on any unpaid amount due at the rate of one percent per month, or at the maximum rate permitted by applicable law, whichever is lower, from the date such payment was due until the date it is paid. In the event Jupiter pursues collection of any overdue Fees payable hereunder, Customer will reimburse all reasonable third-party costs and fees incurred by Jupiter in connection with those collection activities.
3.3 Taxes. The Fees do not include any local, state, federal, withholding, VAT or other indirect taxes, levies or duties of any nature. Customer is responsible for paying any such taxes, excluding taxes based on Jupiter’s net income, without regard to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.
4. Data Protection
4.1 Definitions. “Confidential Information” means information provided to the receiving party (“Receiving Party”) that is designated by the disclosing party (“Disclosing Party”) as “confidential” or “proprietary” or that a reasonable person would understand to be confidential given the nature of the information and the circumstances of the disclosure. Customer’s Confidential Information includes any non-Jupiter-provided data input into the Platform Services (collectively, the “Customer Data”). Jupiter’s Confidential Information includes all Jupiter Data except to the extent Customer has been given express permission to disclose the applicable Jupiter Data. “Confidential Information” does not include information that: (a) is or becomes generally known to the public through no fault of the Receiving Party; (b) is in the Receiving Party’s possession prior to receipt from the Disclosing Party; (c) is acquired by the Receiving Party from a third party without breach of a confidentiality obligation; (d) is independently developed by Receiving Party without reference to the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information; or (e) is approved in writing for disclosure by the Disclosing Party.
4.2 Confidentiality Obligations. Receiving Party will use and disclose Confidential Information solely as contemplated by this Agreement. Receiving Party will disclose Confidential Information only on a need-to-know basis and only to its employees, contractors, advisors or Authorized Users who are bound by obligations of confidentiality at least as strict as those contained in this Section. Receiving Party will use reasonable care to protect Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information and to prevent unauthorized disclosure of Confidential Information. Confidential Information is and will remain the exclusive property of the Disclosing Party. Subject to Section 2.1 (Grants), Receiving Party will, upon written request, destroy all copies of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information that are in its possession or control other than Confidential Information that the Receiving Party has a legal obligation to maintain or those copies maintained in system back-ups in the ordinary course of business.
4.3 Mandated Disclosures. In the event that Receiving Party is required by applicable law to make any disclosure of any of the Confidential Information of Disclosing Party, Receiving Party will, to the extent allowed by law, first give written notice of such requirement to Disclosing Party to allow Disclosing Party a reasonable opportunity to protect its interests in the Confidential Information. In such cases, Receiving Party will provide full cooperation and assistance to Disclosing Party in seeking to obtain such protection, at Disclosing Party’s expense.
4.4 Security. Each party will maintain reasonable and appropriate administrative, technical, organizational and physical security measures to protect the other party’s data (Customer Data and Jupiter Data, respectively) against unauthorized access, disclosure and loss. Each party will regularly monitor compliance with its security measures and will ensure that anyone given access to the other party’s data will use such data only as authorized by this Agreement and will not share such data or otherwise violate the terms of this Agreement. Each party will maintain reasonable and appropriate security incident response policies and procedures for responding to any actual or reasonably suspected unauthorized access, disclosure or loss of the other party’s data (each, a “Data Security Incident”). Each party agrees to notify the other party without undue delay (no more than forty-eight hours) following discovery of any Data Security Incident and will take all necessary actions to prevent, contain and mitigate the impact of the Data Security Incident. Each party agrees to keep the other party fully informed of the underlying facts pertaining to the Data Security Incident and the party’s response, as they develop.

Either party may send a notice to the other party of its intention to file a case with the AAA under this Section (an “Arbitration Notice”). The arbitration will be conducted in San Mateo, California by a single arbitrator knowledgeable in trade secret, copyright and the commercial aspects of SaaS-based services. The parties will mutually appoint an arbitrator within thirty days of the Arbitration Notice. If the parties are unable to agree on an arbitrator, then the AAA will appoint an arbitrator who meets the stated knowledge requirements. Prior to the hearing, each party will have the right to take up to four evidentiary depositions, and exchange one set of document production requests and one set of not more than twenty interrogatories.

Exhibit A Service Level Addendum and Support Terms
A. Availability SLA
1. Availability Promise. Jupiter will use reasonable commercial efforts to ensure that the Platform Services have a Monthly Percentage Uptime of at least 99.9% (“Availability Promise”). Subject to the terms of this SLA, if the Monthly Percentage Uptime in a given month is less than 99.9%, then Customer will be entitled to service credits as further described in Section A2 below.
“Monthly Percentage Uptime” is a percentage calculated by subtracting the total number of minutes of Downtime in a calendar month from the total number of minutes in that calendar month and dividing that result by the total number of minutes in the applicable calendar month. “Downtime” means the number of minutes in a calendar month when the Platform Services are unavailable for use, excluding Emergency Downtime, Scheduled Downtime, and the circumstances described in Section C (Exclusions) below. “Emergency Downtime” means unavailability due to remediation of a vulnerability that Jupiter reasonably determines requires immediate attention. “Scheduled Downtime” means unavailability resulting from scheduled maintenance of the Platform Services, performed in windows of 10 minutes or less and not to exceed 4 hours in a given calendar month.
2. Service Credit. Subject to the terms of this Section A (SLA), if the Monthly Percentage Uptime is less than the Availability Promise in a given calendar month, then Customer may request a credit (the “Service Credit”) calculated as described in the table below. The Service Credit is calculated as a percentage of the applicable pro-rated Fees for the affected calendar month.
In order to receive any Service Credit, Customer must request each Service Credit within thirty days of the applicable failure following the instructions provided by Jupiter from time to time. Each Service Credit reported as described in this paragraph will be applied to future, unpaid Fees. If Customer does not incur future Fees, then promptly following expiration or termination of the applicable Customer Order, Jupiter will pay Customer any outstanding credits payable under this Section A2.
3. Sole and Exclusive Remedies. Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary in any agreement between the parties, the remedies provided in Section A2 and A3 above will be Customer’s sole and exclusive remedies, and Jupiter’s sole and exclusive obligation, in connection with any failure to meet the Availability Promise.
B. Support Services
1. Support Services. Jupiter will provide basic support services and Error (as defined below) correction for each of the Platform Services as further described in this Section B. Any additional support services will be agreed to by the parties and described in the applicable Customer Order.
2. Support Hours and Requests. Support for each Platform Services will be provided during the Business Hours described below. Customer will submit support requests in the manner communicated by Jupiter to Customer from time to time.
3. Error Correction.
(a) Errors. “Error” means a failure of the Platform Services to operate in accordance with its Documentation. Each Error will be assigned one of the following Severity Levels, as reasonably determined by Jupiter:
“Critical Severity Level” means that the Platform Services are inoperable for users.
“High Severity Level” means that the operation of Platform Services or a significant function of the Platform Services are severely limited or degraded and no work around is available.
“Medium Severity Level” means a moderate loss of functionality or performance of the Platform Services but the major components of the Platform Services remain useable.
“Low Severity Level” means there is no material impact on operation of the Platform Services; “Low Severity Level” includes product feature requests.
(b) Support Response. Jupiter will respond to Errors in the operation of the Platform Services as further described in the table below. Jupiter may temporarily resolve Errors by providing a reasonable workaround.
Jupiter will have no obligation under this Availability SLA and Support Terms or any other agreement with Customer for any “Downtime” or “Errors” caused by: (a) hardware, software or services not provided by Jupiter; (b) Customer’s use of the Platform Services in a manner not in accordance with its Documentation or Jupiter’s reasonable instructions; or (c) by other factors outside of Jupiter’s reasonable control, including without limitation, any network or device failure external to data centers operated by Jupiter or its vendors, natural disasters, war, acts of terrorism or government action.
