Both parties agree that obligations of confidentiality will survive expiration or termination of this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any court or other governmental entity with competent jurisdiction requires the Receiving Party to disclose any of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, the Receiving Party may comply with its legal obligations after giving the Disclosing Party prompt, reasonably detailed written notice regarding such required disclosure (including a copy of the relevant order or other legal process) to allow the Disclosing Party to seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy. The Receiving Party will disclose only such information as it reasonably deems is legally required and will cooperate reasonably with the Disclosing Party to obtain confidential treatment for any of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information that is so disclosed. Similarly, the Receiving Party may disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information on a “need-to-know” basis to its legal counsel, accountants, banks and other financing sources and advisors under commercially reasonable confidentiality agreements. Upon termination or expiration of the Agreement, or at the request of the Disclosing Party, the Receiving Party will promptly return all tangible material embodying the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, and will destroy (or, in the case of electronic embodiments, permanently erase) all other tangible material containing or reflecting such Confidential Information (in any form including, without limitation, all summaries, copies and excerpts) in its possession or under its control, whether prepared by the Disclosing Party, the Receiving Party, their respective advisors or otherwise, and will not retain any copies, extracts or other reproductions in whole or in part of such materials.

However, either party may seek interim or temporary injunctive relief in any court of appropriate jurisdiction with respect to any alleged breach of such party’s intellectual property, confidentiality, or proprietary rights under this agreement, as such a breach may cause the non-breaching party irreparable damage for which the award of damages may not be adequate compensation.

Nothing in this Agreement shall constitute one Party as an employee, agent, joint venture partner or servant of another. This Agreement is for the sole benefit of the Parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns and nothing herein, express or implied, is intended to or shall confer on any other person any legal or equitable right, benefit or remedy of any nature whatsoever under or by reason of this Agreement.
17.4 Scope of Business. Nothing in this Agreement will preclude or limit Grafana Labs from providing the Software or Services to other clients.

17.5 Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable for any reason, then such provision shall be fully severable and will not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of the Agreement.
17.6 No Waiver. The failure of either Party to enforce any right or provision in the Agreement will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision, unless acknowledged and agreed in writing.

Each Service Order (a) is deemed to be incorporated into this Agreement; (b) constitutes the terms and conditions with respect to the subject matter of that Service Order, notwithstanding any different or additional terms that may be contained in the form of purchase order or other document used by Client to place orders or otherwise effect transactions under this Agreement; and (c) along with this Agreement, and all attachments hereto or otherwise incorporated herein, represents the final, complete and exclusive statement of the agreement between the parties with respect thereto, notwithstanding any prior written agreements or prior and contemporaneous oral agreements with respect to the subject matter of the Service Order.
17.8 Section Headings. Section headings are for reference purposes only and in no way define, limit, construe or describe the scope or extent of such section.
17.9 Changes to this Agreement.

In either case, if Client objects to the updated Agreement, as its sole and exclusive remedy, Client may choose not to renew, including canceling any terms set to auto-renew. For the avoidance of doubt, any Service Order is subject to the version of the Agreement in effect at the time of the Service Order.

- (I) Maintain a policy that addresses information security for employees and suppliers.
- (J) Restrict physical access to systems containing Client Data.
- (K) Restrict remote access to the entire network and employ remote access controls to verify the identity of users connecting.
- 2.2 Security Audits.
- (A) If requested by Client, Grafana Labs will undergo a security audit.
- (B) Client reserves the right to periodically audit the systems that Grafana Labs uses to store the Client Data, upon prior written notice to Grafana Labs and during Grafana Labs’ normal business hours; provided, that, no more than one such audit shall be made during any 12 month period during the term of this Agreement; provided further that the foregoing restriction will not apply in the event of any security breach related to or in connection with Client Data.
- 2.3 Data Transmission.
- (A) Grafana Labs agrees to meet industry level standards for protecting the confidentiality and integrity of data transmissions. Approved mechanisms for data transmission may include:
- (1) XML/HTTP over SSL, with certificate-based authentication utilizing a 2048-bit (or larger) RSA public key, and 128-bit (or stronger) symmetric encryption.
- (2) Digitally signed and encrypted S/MIME messages over HTTP or SMTP, using certificates with a 2048-bit (or larger) RSA public key, and 128-bit (or stronger) symmetric encryption.
- (3) Digitally signed and encrypted PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) or GPG (Gnu Privacy Guard) messages over a variety of transports, with 2048-bit (or larger) RSA or DH/DSS public keys, and 128-bit (or stronger) symmetric encryption.
- (B) For all message-based encryption schemes employing digital signatures (including PGP and S/MIME), Grafana Labs will verify the digital signature of the message and reject messages with invalid signatures.
- (C) For all encryption schemes employing public key cryptography, Grafana Labs will ensure the confidentiality of the private component of the public-private key pair, and will promptly notify Client in the event that the private key is compromised.
- (D) In general, the mechanism choice will depend on a number of factors such as technical capability, transaction volume, latency requirements, availability requirements, and will be chosen by mutual agreement.
- (A) Grafana Labs agrees to meet industry level standards for protecting the confidentiality and integrity of data transmissions. Approved mechanisms for data transmission may include:
- 2.4 Data Retention.
- (A) Client has no obligation to provide any Client Data to Grafana Labs.
- (B) Grafana Labs will retain Client Data only for as long as is necessary to perform the Services.
- (C) Grafana Labs will delete all live (online or network accessible) instances of the Client Data within 30 days after completion of the Services or termination or expiration of this Agreement Agreement.
- 2.5 Forensic Destruction. Prior to disposing of any hardware, media, or software (including any sale or transfer of such hardware, media, or software, any disposition in connection with any liquidation of Grafana Labs’ business, or any other disposition) that contains, or has at any time contained, Client Data, Grafana Labs will perform a complete forensic destruction of the Client Data in such hardware or software such that none of such Client Data can be recovered or retrieved. Such forensic destruction may include: (a) physical destruction, particularly incineration; or (b) secure data wipe.
- 2.6 Security Incidents. Grafana Labs will notify Client within 48 hours of detecting any actual or suspected unauthorized access, use, disclosure, acquisition, corruption or loss of Client Data, or breach of any environment (a) containing Client Data, or (b) managed by Grafana Labs with controls substantially similar to those protecting Client Data (any such incident, a “Security Incident”). Grafana Labs will remedy any Security Incident in a timely manner and provide Client written details regarding Grafana Labs’ internal investigation regarding any Security Incident. Grafana Labs agrees not to notify any regulatory authority, nor any customer, on behalf of Client unless Client specifically requests in writing that Grafana Labs does so. Grafana Labs will cooperate and work together with Client to formulate and execute a plan to rectify all confirmed Security Incidents.
