Adaptavist End User License Agreement
This Adaptavist End User License Agreement dated 18th May 2020 (the “Agreement”) is between you and Adaptavist Ventures Limited (company number 10550338) and its affiliates (“Adaptavist”). If you are agreeing to this Agreement not as an individual but on behalf of your company, then “Customer”, “Licensee” or “you” means your company, and you are binding your company to this Agreement. Adaptavist may modify this Agreement from time to time, subject to the terms in section “Changes to this Agreement” below.
By ordering, using or accessing Adaptavist products and services, you indicate your consent to be bound by the terms of this Agreement. If you do not agree to the terms of this Agreement, you may not install, copy, download or otherwise use the software.
1 Scope of the Agreement
- The Atlassian Marketplace
- Adaptavist’s own marketplace
- Adaptavist sales or client services team
- Atlassian Experts or other partners and resellers who have the capacity to sell Adaptavist products
- Power-Ups for Trello
- Slack Marketplace
- Other marketplaces, websites, or other mechanisms which sell Adaptavist products and may refer to this Agreement.
2 Types of Adaptavist Products
This Agreement governs Adaptavist’s commercially available and in some cases downloadable software products and services (“Software”) as well as cloud-based products and services (“Hosted Services”), and any related support or maintenance services provided by Adaptavist.
Software includes products which may have downloadable software components or applications, including categories of products that may be specific to Atlassian, such as Server (with a perpetual license) and Data Center (under a subscription license) applications. Software also includes computer software and source code, as well as associated media, icons, images, text files, pdfs or other static non-code assets contained within any form of software, printed materials, and “online” and electronic documentation and internet-based services.
2.2 Hosted Services
Hosted Services includes products and services which are commercially available via a cloud-based platform (or SaaS mechanism). Within the Atlassian context, this includes Cloud variants of Adaptavist products available via Atlassian Cloud platforms. This also includes Slack and Trello apps, which are made available via cloud-based SaaS platforms available from those vendors.
Software and Hosted Services are referred together as ”Products.”
Please note, elements of Software may be available via Hosted Services and vice-versa. In such cases, all relevant terms in this Agreement still govern such elements.
“Order“ means Adaptavist’s applicable online order page(s), or the invoice or other ordering document provided by Adaptavist or 3rd party partner or marketplace (including for example Atlassian’s Marketplace) describing the products, licenses and services you are ordering from us and, as applicable, their permitted scope of use. As applicable, the Order will identify items such as: (i) the Products, (ii) the number of Authorized Users, Subscription Term, domain(s) that may be associated with your use of the Products, and any other scope of use parameters and (iii) (for paid Orders) the amount or rate you will be charged, the billing and renewal terms, applicable currency, and form of payment. Orders may also include description of additional services such as support and No-Charge Products.
4 Account Registration
You may need to register for one or more of the following:
- an Adaptavist account
- an Atlassian account
- a Slack account
- a Trello account
in order to place orders or access or receive any Products. Any registration information that you provide to us or a third party must be accurate, current and complete. You must also update your information so that we may send notices, statements and other information to you by email or through your account. You are responsible for all actions taken through your accounts.
5 Authorized Users
Unless specified otherwise, only the specific individuals for whom you have paid the required fees and whom you designate through the applicable Product (“Authorized Users”) may access and use the Products. Authorized Users may be you or your Affiliates’ employees, representatives, consultants, contractors, agents, or other third parties who are acting for your benefit or on your behalf. You may increase the number of Authorized Users permitted to access your instance of the Product by placing a new Order or, in some cases, directly through the Product. In all cases, you must pay the applicable fee for the increased number of Authorized Users. You are responsible for compliance with this Agreement by all Authorized Users. All use of Products by you and your Authorized Users must be within the scope of use and solely for the benefit of you or your Affiliates. “Affiliate” means an entity which, directly or indirectly, owns or controls, is owned or is controlled by or is under common ownership or control with a party, where “control” means the power to direct the management or affairs of an entity, and “ownership” means the beneficial ownership of 50% (or, if the applicable jurisdiction does not allow majority ownership, the maximum amount permitted under such law) or more of the voting equity securities or other equivalent voting interests of the entity.
6 Software Terms
6.1 Your License Rights
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Adaptavist grants you a non-exclusive, non-sublicenseable and non-transferable license to install and use the Software during the applicable License Term in accordance with this Agreement, excluding Hosting Services. The term of each Software license (“License Term”) will be specified in your Order. Your License Term will end upon any termination of this Agreement, even if it is identified as “perpetual” or if no expiration date is specified in your Order.
6.2 Number of Instances
Unless otherwise specified in your Order, for each Software license that you purchase, you may install one production instance of the Software on systems owned or operated by you (or your third party service providers so long as you remain responsible for their compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement).
In any use of the Software, where such attribution is provided as part of the product, you must include the following attribution to Adaptavist on all user interfaces in the following format: “Powered by Adaptavist,” which must in every case include a hyperlink to http://www.adaptavist.com, and which must be in the same format as delivered in the Software.
6.4 Evaluation Licenses and Periods
Adaptavist may in its sole discretion provide evaluation copies of the Software for customers to assess the Software, which may not have full functionality. If the Software is only provided for evaluation purposes the rights of the Licensee are limited to this evaluation license which permits the Licensee to download, install, use and operate the Software for a limited period (“Evaluation Period”) and be accessed by a limited number of temporary users only, as determined by Adaptavist (“Evaluation Licence”). On the expiry of the Evaluation Period the Software will cease to function and the Licensee must remove and delete all copies of the Software in its possession.
7 Access to Hosted Services
7.1 Right to Access
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Adaptavist may grant you a non-exclusive right to access to use the Hosted Services during the applicable Subscription Term (as defined below) in accordance with this Agreement, your applicable scope of use as defined in your Order, and the documentation. If Adaptavist offers client software (e.g., a desktop or mobile application) for any Hosted Service, you may use such software solely with the Hosted Service, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. You acknowledge that our Hosted Services are on-line, subscription-based products and that we may make changes to the Hosted Services from time to time.
7.2 Subscription Terms and Renewals
Hosted Services are provided on a subscription basis for a set term specified in your Order (“Subscription Term”).
Except as otherwise specified in your Order, all subscriptions will automatically renew for periods equal to your initial Subscription Term (and you will be charged at the then-current rates) unless you cancel your subscription. If you cancel, your subscription will terminate at the end of then-current billing cycle, but you will not be entitled to any credits or refunds for amounts accrued or paid prior to such termination unless noted otherwise in your Order.
You must ensure that all Authorized Users keep their user IDs and passwords for the Hosted Services strictly confidential and not share such information with any unauthorized person. User IDs are granted to individual, named persons and may not be shared. You are responsible for any and all actions taken using your accounts and passwords, and you agree to immediately notify us as well as Atlassian, Slack or Trello (as appropriate) of any unauthorized use of which you become aware.
7.4 Your Data
“Your Data” means any data, content, code, video, images or other materials of any type that you upload, submit or otherwise transmit to or through Hosted Services. You will retain all right, title and interest in and to Your Data in the form provided to Adaptavist. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, you hereby grant to Adaptavist a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free right to (a) collect, use, copy, store, transmit, modify and create derivative works of Your Data, in each case solely to the extent necessary to provide the applicable Hosted Service to you and (b) for Hosted Services that enable you to share Your Data or interact with other people, to distribute, publicly perform and display Your Data as you (or your Authorized Users) direct or enable through the Hosted Service. Adaptavist may also access your account or instance in order to respond to your support requests.
Adaptavist implements security procedures to help protect Your Data from security attacks. However, you understand that use of the Hosted Services necessarily involves transmission of Your Data over networks that are not owned, operated or controlled by us, and we are not responsible for any of Your Data lost, altered, intercepted or stored across such networks. We cannot guarantee that our security procedures will be error-free, that transmissions of Your Data will always be secure or that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat our security measures or those of our third party service providers.
7.6 Storage Limits
There may be storage limits associated with a particular Hosted Service. These limits are described in the services descriptions on our websites or in the documentation for the particular Hosted Service. Adaptavist reserves the right to charge for additional storage or overage fees, up to triple the fees already being charged to you. We may impose new, or may modify existing, storage limits for the Hosted Services at any time in our discretion, with or without notice to you.
7.7 Fair Use Policy
If the Licensee is using Hosted Services, the Licensee understands and agrees to Adaptavist’s Fair Use for Hosted Services Policy. The Fair Use for Hosted Services Policy outlines constraints in the volume of use of the Hosted Services. That is, by providing the Licensee with access to Hosted Services, Adaptavist is essentially providing a service to the Licensee. In providing this service, Adaptavist incurs costs that vary depending on the Licensee’s use of the Hosted Service itself. Costs include payment for IT infrastructure (including processing power) on which the Hosted Service runs, and associated network connectivity. In order to provide a service at a fixed price to the Licensee, Adaptavist must contain overall costs, and therefore usage, to a certain level. The Licensee therefore acknowledges this.
Adaptavist will monitor use of the Hosted Services and determine whether the Licensee is in compliance. If the Licensee is not in compliance, the Licensee will be in “Breach of Fair Use,” and Adaptavist may at its discretion suspend a Licensee’s access (right to use) the relevant Hosted Services. Adaptavist may also approach the Licensee in the interest of designing a customised service that could accommodate the Licensee’s usage requirements. In addition, Adaptavist will be entitled (without prejudice to any other right or claim that Adaptavist may have against Licensee) to charge Licensee, in addition to any other Fees payable by Licensee under this EULA, a fee calculated based on the volume of use which is in Breach of Fair Use, up to triple the fees already payable by Licensee.
8 Responsibility for Your Data
You must ensure that your use of all Your Data is at all times compliant with all applicable local, state, federal and international laws and regulations (“Laws”). You represent and warrant that:
8.1.1 you have obtained all necessary rights, releases and permissions to provide all Your Data to Adaptavist and to grant the rights granted to Adaptavist in this Agreement and
8.1.2 Your Data and its transfer to and use by Adaptavist as authorized by you under this Agreement do not violate any Laws (including without limitation those relating to export control and electronic communications) or rights of any third party, including without limitation any intellectual property rights, rights of privacy, or rights of publicity, and any use, collection and disclosure authorized herein is not inconsistent with the terms of any applicable privacy policies. Adaptavist assumes no responsibility or liability for Your Data, and you shall be solely responsible for Your Data and the consequences of using, disclosing, storing, or transmitting it.
8.2 Sensitive Data
You will not submit to the Hosted Services (or use the Hosted Services to collect):
8.2.1 any patient, medical or other protected health information regulated by HIPAA or any similar federal or state laws, rules or regulations; or
8.2.2 any other information subject to regulation or protection under specific laws such as the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (or related rules or regulations).
The above information mentioned in this clause “Sensitive Data” will be collectively referred to as “Sensitive Data”. You also acknowledge that Adaptavist is not acting as your Business Associate or Subcontractor (as such terms are defined and used in HIPAA) and that the Hosted Services are not HIPAA compliant. “HIPAA” means the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, as amended and supplemented. Notwithstanding any other provision to the contrary, Adaptavist has no liability under this Agreement for Sensitive Data.
8.3 Indemnity for Your Data
You will defend, indemnify and hold harmless Adaptavist from and against any loss, cost, liability or damage, including attorneys’ fees, for which Adaptavist becomes liable arising from or relating to any claim relating to Your Data, including but not limited to any claim brought by a third party alleging that Your Data, or your use of the Hosted Services in breach of this Agreement, infringes or misappropriates the intellectual property rights of a third party or violates applicable law. This indemnification obligation is subject to your receiving
8.3.1 prompt written notice of such claim (but in any event notice in sufficient time for you to respond without prejudice);
8.3.2 the exclusive right to control and direct the investigation, defense, or settlement of such claim; and
8.3.3 all reasonable necessary cooperation of Adaptavist at your expense.
8.4 Removals and Suspension
Adaptavist has no obligation to monitor any content uploaded to the Hosted Services. Nonetheless, if we deem such action necessary based on your violation of this Agreement, we may (1) remove Your Data from the Hosted Services or (2) suspend your access to the Hosted Services. We will generally alert you when we take such action and give you a reasonable opportunity to cure your breach, but if we determine that your actions endanger the operation of the Hosted Service or other users, we may suspend your access immediately without notice. You will continue to be charged for the Hosted Service during any suspension period. We have no liability to you for removing or deleting Your Data from or suspending your access to any Hosted Services as described in this section.
8.5 Deletion at End of Subscription Term
We may remove or delete Your Data within a reasonable period of time after the termination of your Subscription Term subject to the terms of this Agreement.
9 Support and Maintenance
Adaptavist will provide the support and maintenance services where specified for the Products (“Support and Maintenance”) during the period for which you have paid the applicable fee. This Agreement applies to updates, supplements, add-on components, or Internet-based services components which includes use of “cloud” based applications, of the Software (“Supplementary Software”) that Adaptavist may provide to the Licensee or make available to the Licensee after the date the Licensee obtains its initial copy of the Software, unless Adaptavist provides other terms along with any Supplementary Software. Adaptavist reserves the right to discontinue any Internet-based services provided to the Licensee or made available to the Licensee through the use of the Software. Any support services provided by Adaptavist and described separately in documentation to the Licensee specifically may be subject to the payment of additional Fees.

We will deliver the applicable license keys (in the case of Software) or login instructions (in the case of Hosted Services) to the email addresses specified in your Order when we have received payment of the applicable fees. All deliveries under this Agreement will be electronic. For the avoidance of doubt, you are responsible for installation of any Software, and you acknowledge that both Adaptavist and Atlassian have no further delivery obligation with respect to the Software after delivery of the license keys. The delivery of license keys shall be made by Atlassian through the Atlassian Marketplace on behalf of Adaptavist, unless other arrangements have been made directly with Adaptavist outside the scope of this Agreement.
10.2 Atlassian Apps Payment
You agree to pay all fees in accordance with each Order. Unless otherwise specified in your Order, you will pay all amounts in U.S. dollars at the time you place your Order unless otherwise specified in the Order. You can request a refund or exchange/upgrade of your commercial or academic server license up to 30 days after the original date of purchase or as otherwise specified in your Order. After the 30-day period, standard pricing for upgrades will apply and refunds/ exchanges will not be available. Refunds for any Adaptavist products that are sold to work with Atlassian Cloud (i.e. a Hosted Service) are only available within the first paid month after the evaluation period for monthly subscriptions and within 30 days of payment for annual subscriptions, or as specified in your Order. In making payments, you acknowledge that you are not relying on future availability of any Products beyond the current License Term or Subscription Term or any Product upgrades or feature enhancements. If you add Authorized Users during your License Term or Subscription Term, you will be charged for the increased number of Authorized Users pursuant to the then-currently applicable rates in your next billing cycle. You agree that we may bill your credit card for renewals, additional users, and unpaid fees, as applicable.
11 Financial Terms - Trello and Slack related Products
11.1 Trello Apps and Slack Apps Payment
Your payments 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 Adaptavist, you must pay to Adaptavist the amount of such taxes or duties in addition to any fees owed under this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you 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, you will have the right to provide to Adaptavist any such exemption information, and Adaptavist will use reasonable efforts to provide such invoicing documents as may enable you to obtain a refund or credit for the amount so paid from any relevant revenue authority if such a refund or credit is available.
13 No-Charge Products
We may offer certain Products to you at no charge, including free accounts, trial use, and access to Beta Versions as defined below (“No-Charge Products”). Your use of No-Charge Products is subject to this EULA and.may also be subject to any additional terms that we specify and is only permitted for the period designated by us. You may not use No-Charge Products for competitive analysis or similar purposes. We may terminate your right to use No-Charge Products at any time and for any reason in our sole discretion, without liability to you. You understand that any pre-release and beta products we make available (“Beta Versions”) are still under development, may be inoperable or incomplete and are likely to contain more errors and bugs than generally available Products. We make no promises that any Beta Versions will ever be made generally available. In some circumstances, we may charge a fee in order to allow you to access Beta Versions, but the Beta Versions will still remain subject to this section “No-Charge Products”. All information regarding the characteristics, features or performance of Beta Versions constitutes Adaptavist’s Confidential Information. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, we disclaim all obligations or liabilities with respect to No-Charge Products, including any Support and Maintenance, warranty, and indemnity obligations. The terms of this EULA are applicable to No-Charge Products.
Except as otherwise expressly permitted in this Agreement, you will not:
14.1 rent, lease, reproduce, modify, adapt, create derivative works of, distribute, sell, sublicense, transfer, or provide access to the Products to a third party,

14.7 publicly disseminate information regarding the performance of the Products. At our request, you agree to provide a signed certification that you are using all Products pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, including the scope of use.
15 Ownership and Feedback
Products are made available on a limited license or access basis, and no ownership right is conveyed to you, irrespective of the use of terms such as “purchase” or “sale”. Adaptavist and its licensors have and retain all right, title and interest, including all intellectual property rights, in and to the Products (including all No-Charge Products), their “look and feel”, any and all related or underlying technology, and any modifications or derivative works of the foregoing created by or for Adaptavist, including without limitation as they may incorporate Feedback (“Adaptavist Technology”). From time to time, you may choose to submit comments, information, questions, data, ideas, description of processes, or other information to Adaptavist (“Feedback”), which may or may not be in the course of receiving Support and Maintenance. Adaptavist may in connection with any of its products or services freely use, copy, disclose, license, distribute and exploit any Feedback in any manner without any obligation, royalty or restriction based on intellectual property rights or otherwise. No Feedback will be considered your Confidential Information, and nothing in this Agreement limits Adaptavist’s right to independently use, develop, evaluate, or market products, whether incorporating Feedback or otherwise. Adaptavist and its affiliates reserve the right to identify your company as a customer in promotional materials and website. We will never identify individual users.
16.1 Except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, each party agrees that all code, inventions, know-how, business, technical and financial information disclosed to such party (“Receiving Party”) by the disclosing party (“Disclosing Party”) constitute the confidential property of the Disclosing Party (“Confidential Information”), provided that it is identified as confidential at the time of disclosure. Any Adaptavist Technology and any performance information relating to the Products shall be deemed Confidential Information of Adaptavist without any marking or further designation. Except as expressly authorized herein, the Receiving Party will hold in confidence and not use or disclose any Confidential Information.
16.2 The Receiving Party’s nondisclosure obligation shall not apply to information which the Receiving Party can document:
16.2.1 was rightfully in its possession or known to it prior to receipt of the Confidential Information;
16.2.2 is or has become public knowledge through no fault of the Receiving Party;
16.2.3 is rightfully obtained by the Receiving Party from a third party without breach of any confidentiality obligation; or
16.2.4 is independently developed by employees of the Receiving Party who had no access to such information.
16.2.5 The Receiving Party may also disclose Confidential Information if so required pursuant to a regulation, law or court order (but only to the minimum extent required to comply with such regulation or order and with advance notice to the Disclosing Party).
16.3 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. For the avoidance of doubt, this section shall not operate as a separate warranty with respect to the operation of any Product.
17 Term and Termination
Subject to the terms of this Agreement and unless terminated earlier in accordance with this Agreement, the term granted hereunder shall be set out in your License Order. Either party may terminate this Agreement before the expiration of the Term if the other party materially breaches any of the terms of this Agreement and does not cure the breach within thirty (30) days after written notice of the breach. Either party may also terminate the Agreement before the expiration of the Term if the other party ceases to operate, declares bankruptcy, or becomes insolvent or otherwise unable to meet its financial obligations. You may terminate this Agreement at any time with notice to Adaptavist, but you will not be entitled to any credits or refunds as a result of convenience termination for prepaid but unused Software, Hosted Services subscriptions, or Support and Maintenance. Except where an exclusive remedy may be specified in this Agreement, the exercise by either party of any remedy, including termination, will be without prejudice to any other remedies it may have under this Agreement, by law, or otherwise. Once the Agreement terminates, you (and your Authorized Users) will no longer have any right to use or access any Products, or any information or materials that we make available to you under this Agreement, including Adaptavist Confidential Information. You are required to delete any of the foregoing from your systems as applicable (including any third party systems operated on your behalf) and provide written certification to us that you have done so at our request. If any provision of the Agreement (or part of a provision) is found by any court or administrative body of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, the other provisions shall remain in force. If any invalid, unenforceable or illegal provision would be valid, enforceable or legal if some part of it were deleted, the provision shall apply with the minimum modification necessary to make it legal, valid and enforceable and to give effect to the commercial intention of the parties.
The following provisions will survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement: sections “Indemnity for Your Data”, section “Payment”, section “Taxes”, section “No-Charge Products”, section “Restrictions”, section “Ownership and Feedback”, section “Confidentiality”, section “Term and Termination”, section “Warranty Disclaimer”, section “Limitation of Liability”, section “Dispute Resolution”, section “Export Restrictions”, and section “General Provisions”.
