Notwithstanding the foregoing, Grafana Labs shall have no obligation under this Section 9.1 for any Claim Against Customer arising out of or related to: (i) modifications made to the Indemnified Products by anyone other than Grafana Labs; or (ii) the combination, operation or use by Customer or anyone acting on Customer’s behalf, of the Indemnified Products in connection with a third-party product or service (the combination of which causes the infringement); (iii) use or exploitation of the Indemnified Products other than as set forth in this Agreement or applicable Documentation; or (iv) failure to implement any update, modification, or replacement to the Indemnified Products as provided by Grafana Labs.

9.2 Customer. Subject to Section 9.3 below, Customer will defend Grafana Labs against any third-party claim, demand, suit, or proceeding alleging that Customer Data, or Grafana Labs’ use thereof in accordance with this Agreement, infringes, violates, or misappropriates Intellectual Property Rights (“Claim Against GL”), and will indemnify and hold harmless Grafana Labs from and against any damages, costs, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) finally awarded by a court of law in respect of such Claim Against GL, or for amounts paid by Customer under a signed settlement of such Claim Against GL.

The indemnified party may participate in the Claim Against Customer or Claim Against GL, as applicable, at its sole cost and expense, except that the indemnifying party will retain sole control of the defense and/or settlement. The indemnifying party shall not agree to any settlement of the Claim Against Customer or Claim Against GL, as applicable, that includes an injunction against the indemnified party, or admission of liability of the indemnified party without the indemnified party’s prior written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld.

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, consultants, and advisors under commercially reasonable confidentiality agreements. Upon the earlier of (i) the Disclosing Party’s request, or (ii) the termination or expiration of this Agreement, the Receiving Party will return all copies of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, or destroy all copies of such Confidential Information in its possession; provided, however, the Receiving Party may retain a copy of any Confidential Information disclosed to it solely for archival purposes, provided that such copy is retained in secure storage and held in confidence for so long as such Confidential Information remains in the possession of the Receiving Party.

The Grafana Product(s) are provided to the U.S. Government as “commercial items,” “commercial computer software,” “commercial computer software documentation,” and “technical data”, and are subject to this Master Services Agreement, with the same rights and restrictions generally applicable to the Grafana Product(s). If Customer or any User is using Grafana Product(s) on behalf of the U.S. Government and these terms fail to meet the U.S. Government’s needs or are inconsistent in any respect with federal law, Customer and such Users must immediately discontinue use of the Grafana Product(s). If greater rights are needed, a mutually acceptable written addendum specifically conveying such rights must be included in this Agreement. The terms listed above are defined in the Federal Acquisition Regulation and the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement.

13.2 Governing Law; Venue. This Agreement is governed by the laws of the State of New York, without regard to conflicts of laws. The parties hereby irrevocably consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the state and federal courts located in the County of New York, New York, for resolution of any disputes arising out of this Agreement. The parties specifically disclaim the application of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods to the interpretation or enforcement of this Agreement.

13.3 Force Majeure. Neither party shall be liable for any delay or failure in performance of any part of this Agreement (except payment) to the extent that such delay is caused by a Force Majeure Event. If any such Force Majeure Event occurs, the party delayed or unable to perform (“Delayed party”), upon giving prompt notice to the other party, shall be excused from such performance on a day-to-day basis during the continuance of such Condition (and the other party shall likewise be excused from performance of its obligations on a day-to-day basis during the same period); provided, however, that the party so affected shall use its best reasonable efforts to avoid or remove such Condition, and both Parties shall proceed immediately with the performance of their obligations under this Agreement whenever such causes are removed or cease.

13.4 Independent Parties; No Third Party Beneficiaries. The Parties expressly understand and agree that their relationship is that of independent contractors. 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.

13.5 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.

13.6 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 by the party against whom the waiver is asserted.

13.7 Assignment. This Agreement is assignable by either party only with the other party's prior written consent, which will not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed; provided, however, either party may, upon written notice and without the prior approval of the other party, (a) assign this Agreement to an Affiliate as long as the Affiliate has sufficient assets to satisfy its obligations under this Agreement and the scope of Grafana Product(s) is not affected; or (b) assign this Agreement pursuant to a merger, consolidation, reorganization, change of control, or a sale of all or substantially all of such party's assets or stock.

13.8 Notices. All notices shall be in writing to each party’s address on the signature page of this Master Services Agreement (or as updated by a party in writing to the other), and effective on receipt.

13.9 Entire Agreement; Integration. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement of the parties and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements, proposals or representations, written or oral, concerning the subject matter hereof. Notwithstanding any language to the contrary in this Agreement, any Customer (or Reseller) purchase order shall be deemed a convenient payment device only and no terms or conditions in any such purchase order shall be incorporated into this Agreement, which are void and of no effect.

13.10 Counterparts; Headings. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts. Section headings are for reference purposes only and in no way define, limit, construe or describe the scope or extent of such section.

13.11 Changes to this Agreement. No amendment or waiver of any provision of this Agreement shall be effective unless in writing and signed by both parties.

13.12 Remedies; Injunctive Relief. Except as otherwise provided, remedies provided herein are in addition to, and not exclusive of, any other remedies of a party at law or in equity. 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 with no adequate remedy at law.

13.13 Open Source Components. Notwithstanding the license grant in Section 2.1, Customer acknowledges that certain components of the Grafana Product(s) (“Open Source Components”) may be provided by third parties under open source software licenses, which means any software licenses approved as open source licenses by the Open Source Initiative or any substantially similar licenses. Customer acknowledges receipt of license notices for the Open Source Components for the initial delivery of the Product. To the extent required by the licenses covering third party Open Source Components, the terms of such licenses will apply to such Open Source Components in lieu of the terms of this Agreement.  To the extent the terms of the licenses applicable to third party Open Source Components prohibit any of the restrictions in Section 2.2 of this Master Services Agreement with respect to such Open Source Component, such restrictions will not apply to such Open Source Component. To the extent the terms of the licenses applicable to third party Open Source Components require Grafana Labs to make an offer to provide source code or related information in connection with the Open Source Components, such offer is hereby made.  Grafana Labs may make certain components of the Grafana Product(s) separately generally available under open source or other royalty-free licenses. This Agreement will not vitiate the rights granted to Customer under such licenses. However, violation by Customer of such licenses will be deemed a breach of this Agreement.

13.14 Consumption-Based Products Terms [as applicable]. If an Order Form(s) includes Consumption-Based Products, pricing for consumption thereof will be determined by the applicable Consumption-Based Products Rate Table set forth in the applicable Order Form(s). Without limiting anything in this Agreement, for purposes of clarity, fees paid for Consumption-Based Products (whether prepaid and corresponding to unused consumption, or otherwise) expire at the end of the then-current Subscription Term, and are non-assignable, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, and not eligible for carry-over to subsequent Subscription Terms. Fees for the Consumption-Based Products will first be charged against any prepaid amounts, monthly in arrears, until exhausted. Fees for further consumption will be charged monthly in arrears, and Customer agrees to pay such amounts in accordance with Section 6 of this Master Services Agreement. Grafana Labs may change the pricing in the applicable Consumption-Based Products Rate Table at any time, in its sole discretion.

13.15 Changes to this Agreement. Grafana Labs may modify this Agreement at any time by posting a revised version at www.grafana.com which modifications will become effective as of the first day of the calendar month following the month in which they were first posted; provided, however, that if an Order Form(s) specifies a fixed term of twelve (12) months or longer, the modifications will instead be effective immediately upon the start of the next Subscription Term. In either case, if Customer objects to the updated Agreement, as its sole and exclusive remedy, Customer may choose not to renew, including canceling any terms set to auto-renew. For the avoidance of doubt, any Order Form(s) is subject to the version of the Agreement in effect at the time the Order Form(s) the Order Form(s) is signed by both Customer and Grafana Labs.
