Dated: December 2018

 

1. Acceptance of Terms

Thank you for using WhiteSource, Ltd.’s (“WhiteSource” or “us” or “we”) products and services. These Terms of Service (the “Terms”) govern the use of the products and services which are made available to you via GitHub’s Marketplace Platform (the “Service”), the related technical documentation available at https://whitesource.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/WD/pages/556007950/Bolt+for+GitHub (the “Documentation”), as well as all information data made available to you in connection with the Service (“Data,” together with the Service and Documentation, the “App”). By using or accessing any part of the App, you are agreeing to these Terms and all other applicable policies and notices, as made available to you from time to time. In addition, if you are entering into these Terms on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you hereby warrant that you have authority to bind such entity to these Terms, in which case the terms “you” or “your” shall refer to such entity.

If you don't agree to these Terms or you do not have authority to enter into these Terms, you must not accept these Terms and may not use any part of the App. We may amend these Terms at any time by posting an amended version on the Service. You can determine when these Terms were last modified by checking the “Last updated” notice on the top of the Agreement. Your continued use of the Site or Services shall constitute your consent to any changes made. If you do not agree to the new or different terms, you should not use the App. These Terms may not be otherwise amended.

You may not access any part of our App if you are a direct competitor of ours, except with our prior written consent. In addition, you may not access any part of the App for purposes of (i) building a competitive product or service, (ii) copying any features, functions or graphics of, or data or information in, the App, and/or (iii) monitoring its availability, performance or functionality, or for any other benchmarking or competitive purposes.

 

2. Permission to Use the Offering

You may use the App in accordance with these Terms, provided that:

  • you are over 18 years old
  • you do not copy the App or any part of the App
  • you do not modify the App or any part thereof
  • and you follow all the rules and restrictions we've spelled out in these Terms and our Privacy Policy

 

3. Accounts; Password; Security

You may need to set up an account in order to use some of the features of the App (an “Account”). When you are setting up your Account, you must give us accurate and complete information. You may not use someone else's account without permission. This means that you cannot set up an account using someone else's name or contact information, or a phony name or phony contact information. You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs in your Account, and you must keep your Account password secure. If you find out that someone is using your Account without your permission, you must let us know immediately. You may not transfer your Account to someone else. We are not liable for any damages or losses caused by someone using your account without your permission. However, if we (or anyone else) suffer any damage due to the unauthorized use of your account, you may be liable.

Through the GitHub Marketplace Platform, we may obtain access to your name, e-mail address, company, and location. Our use of any personally identifiable information you provide to us as part of the registration process is governed by the terms of our Privacy Policy.

 

4. License to Use our Service

We grant you a personal, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, non-assignable, non-transferable, revocable right to use the App solely for your internal business operations and in accordance with these Terms.

You agree not to, and shall not permit any third party to: (i) access any part of the App without our consent, (ii) modify, translate, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, create derivative works of or copy any part of the App or otherwise seek to obtain or use the source code or non-public APIs of any part of the App, except to the extent expressly permitted by applicable law (and then only upon advance written notice to WhiteSource), (iii) remove, alter or obscure any proprietary notices, labels or marks on any component or portion of the App, (iv) market, sell, resell, rent, distribute or lease any part of the App, (v) interfere with or disrupt the integrity or performance of any part of the App, (vi) use any part of the App for the benefit of any third party including use of the Service to operate as a service bureau, or hosting service, and/or (vii) attempt to gain unauthorized access to any part of the App, or their related systems or networks; (viii) breach any applicable local, national or international law, rule or regulation; (ix) access or use the App in the following territories: North Korea, Crimea, Cuba, Sevastopol, Sudan, Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Libya and the Palestinian Authority; or (x) transmit any data, send or upload any material that contains viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time-bombs, keystroke loggers, spyware, adware or any other harmful programs or similar computer code designed to adversely affect the operation of any computer software or hardware.
This license shall remain in effect until and unless these Terms are terminated by you or us (see section 13 for information about termination).

 

5. Proprietary Rights to the Offering

The App is licensed and not sold to you under these Terms and you acknowledge that  WhiteSource and its licensors retain all right, title and interest (including all copyright, trade secret, patent and other rights) in and to the App anywhere in the world (even after installation onto a computer owned by you or integration into your system), and that you have no rights in or to any part of the App other than the right to use each of them in accordance with these Terms. If you give feedback, suggestions or any other information relating to your use of the App, for example recommendations for improvements or features (“Feedback”), that Feedback is solely owned by us and may become part of the App without any compensation to you. We reserve all rights in and to the App unless we expressly state otherwise. The App contains proprietary and confidential information that is protected by applicable intellectual property and other laws.

In the event that you breach the terms of the license granted to you herein and such breach results in the creation of derivative works of any part of the App (“Derivative Works”), you hereby assign with full right and title guarantee all such Derivative Works to us. Such assignment does not preclude us from taking any legal or other action against you for contravention of these Terms, including for infringement of our intellectual property rights.

The content on the App is provided to you “as is” for your personal use only and may not be used, copied, distributed, transmitted, broadcast, displayed, sold, licensed, de-compiled, or otherwise exploited for any other purposes whatsoever without our prior written consent.  If you download or print a copy of the content you must retain all copyright and other proprietary notices contained therein.

All brand, product and service names used in the App which identify WhiteSource or our licensors and our or their proprietary products and services are the trademarks or service marks of WhiteSource or our licensors. Nothing in the App shall be deemed to confer on any person any license or right on the part of WhiteSource or such App with respect to any such image, logo or name. We reserve all rights not expressly granted herein to the App.

 

6. Project Data and Rights you give us

We claim no intellectual property rights in and to your applications, project or any material you provide or otherwise transmit to us via the Service and you will be solely responsible for the accuracy, quality and legality of the information transmitted to us via the Service.

To enable your use of the App, we need to inspect portions of your project and send parts of it to our servers. This information includes, but is not limited to, information relating to the project (such as the project name and metadata), information on dependencies, how the dependencies are being used and how they are referenced by the project and WhiteSource-related files (“Project Information”). We may also collect Project Information for each of the project’s dependencies (“Dependency Information”). For these purposes, we require, and you hereby grant us, a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty free license to store, use, reproduce, display and transmit the Project Information, the Dependency Information and any other materials transmitted via the Service to the extent necessary to enable your use of the App, including monitoring services. This license shall remain in effect until and unless these Terms of Service are terminated by you or us.

In addition to the rights granted to us above, we also require, and you hereby grant to us, a license to store, use, reproduce, display and transmit the Project Information, the Dependency Information and any other materials transmitted via the Service for analytical purposes and to improve our App. For the avoidance of doubt, this license will not end upon termination of these Terms of Service or where you delete the relevant project on the project page of the GitHub Marketplace Platform.

 

7. Usage Data Analysis

WhiteSource reserves the right to compile, maintain and use statistical, metric and performance information regarding your use of the App (the "Usage Information"), and you understand and acknowledge that the Service may contain a feature that sends Usage Information along with other technical information regarding the operation of the Service to WhiteSource. This information is used by us for analytical purposes and to improve our App. It allows us to better understand how the App is used and informs our product development decisions.

YOU FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGE THAT OUR OPEN SOURCE VULNERABILITY DATABASE DOES NOT PROVIDE ANY LEGAL OR OTHER PROFESSIONAL ADVICE IN RELATION TO THE APP AND WE DO NO NOT GUARANTEE IT IS A COMPLETE SOURCE OF ALL VULNERABILITIES AND LICENSE ISSUES FOR ALL DEPENDENCIES OR THAT IT IS RELEVANT OR SUITED TO ALL THE DEPENDENCIES INCLUDED OR USED BY YOUR APPLICATION. YOU FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE SUGGESTIONS MADE BY US IN RELATION TO FIXES (WHETHER FOR UPDATES, PATCHES OR MONITORING SERVICES) ARE PROVIDED FOR GENERAL INFORMATION ONLY AND HAVE NOT BEEN MADE WITH YOUR PARTICULAR REQUIREMENTS IN MIND.

15. Updates and Upgrades
