By continuing to use the Service, you agree to any future amendments and additions to these Terms, as may be published by us from time to time, in the manner detailed below. Please review these pages periodically to ensure you are up-to-date with any changes.
1. Service: Rights to Access and Use
By signing up to the Service, you are given a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-assignable, non-transferrable, non-sublicensable right, to use and access the Service, and to integrate the Service into your services for end-user identity and access management as described in https://www.descope.com/, during the Agreement term and subject to these Terms, including without limitation to the access and use restrictions set forth in Section 5 (use restrictions) below, which restrictions, for the avoidance of doubt, are in addition to, and without derogating from, any other access and use restrictions set forth herein.
To access the service, you and members of your organization and other individuals authorized by your organization (where applicable) (each – a “Customer User” and together with users of your service – a “User”) shall register and create accounts to access the Service control console (each, an “Account” and the “Control Console”, respectively). You are solely responsible for the content and any activity that occurs in your Account and the Control Console, and if you are an organization, you are responsible for all such Accounts, and compliance by your Customer Users with the terms herein. You shall: (a) not allow anyone other than Customer’s Users to access and use the Accounts or the Control Console; (b) keep, and ensure that Customer Users keep all Account login details and passwords credentials and access measures secure at all times; (c) ensure that the login details for each Customer User may only be used by that Customer User, and that multiple people may not share the same login details; and (d) promptly notify us in writing if you become aware of any unauthorized access or use of an Account or the Control Console.
If under the terms of an Order you are entitled to a certain level of availability of Service and support, the terms of Descope Service Level Agreement which are available on Descope’s website, as may be amended from time to time (the “SLA”), shall apply.
The Agreement does not entitle you to any right or title in the Service (or any part thereof), other than the rights explicitly granted herein.
We may change or update the Service at any time, including the availability of any feature, content or database, and the we may impose limitations or restrictions on certain features and services or on the access to the Service (or any part thereof), without notice or liability, unless we consider certain change to be material, in which case we will notify you by posting an announcement on our website, through the Service or by email. Furthermore, we may offer alternative or additional features to certain customers, that may not be offered to others.
In consideration of the provision of the Service, you shall pay Descope the fees set forth in the applicable Order. Fees shall be payable as per the respective payment terms specified under the applicable Order, and if no specific terms are specified, Descope will charge you the applicable fees at the beginning of each subscription cycle and the respective invoices will become due within thirty (30) days following the receipt of each invoice from us. All fees are quoted in US Dollars, unless expressly stated otherwise.
We reserve the right to change the fees at any time, upon notice, provided that any increase shall only become effective upon the end of the then-applicable Order term.
Fees are payable through third-party payment processing providers, under such providers’ respective terms. We disclaim any liability in connection with such services including any commission such third party may charge from you. You must keep the billing information provided to us current, complete, and accurate, and promptly notify us in case of any change in your billing information.
The fees are exclusive of any and all taxes (including without limitation, value added tax, sales tax, use tax, excise, goods and services tax, etc.), levies, or duties (the “Taxes”), except for income tax imposed on Descope. If you are located in a jurisdiction which requires you to deduct or withhold Taxes or other amounts from any amounts due to us, you shall promptly notify us in writing and we will make reasonable efforts to avoid any such Tax withholding, provided, however, that in any case, you shall bear the sole responsibility and liability to pay such Tax and such Tax shall be “grossed up” and added on top of the fees payable by you.
ALL PAYMENT OBLIGATIONS ARE NON-CANCELABLE AND ALL AMOUNTS PAID IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICE ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. If you terminate your subscription, pursuant to these Terms, in the middle of an Order term, you will not be entitled for any refund (pro-rata or otherwise), for any fees paid for the terminated Service. You are responsible for paying all fees applicable to your subscription to the Service, regardless of whether the Service was actively used, accessed or otherwise enjoyed.
Failure to pay the fees will constitute a material breach of the Agreement. Without derogating from any other rights and remedies available to us, overdue fees will accrue interest at the rate of the lower of (i) one and a half percent (1.5%) per month, or (ii) the highest rate permitted by law, accrued monthly from the due date until the date of actual payment. You will reimburse us for all reasonable expenses (including legal costs and attorney fees) incurred by us in the course of collecting your overdue fees.
If you purchased a Service from a reseller or distributor authorized by us (“Reseller”), then in case of any conflict between this Agreement and the agreement entered between you and the respective Reseller, including any purchase order (“Reseller Agreement”), then, as between you and us, this Agreement shall prevail. Any rights granted to you and/or any of the other Users in such Reseller Agreement which are not contained in this Agreement, apply only in connection with the Reseller. In that case, you must seek redress or the realization or enforcement of such rights solely with the Reseller and not us. For clarity, you and your Users’ access to the Service is subject to our receipt from Reseller of the payment of the applicable fees paid by you to Reseller. You hereby acknowledge that at any time, at our discretion, the billing of fees may be assigned to us, such that you shall pay Descope directly.
3. Term and Termination
This Agreement shall come into force upon its execution and remain in force for such period set forth in a corresponding Order, unless sooner terminated pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. To ensure that you will not experience any interruption or loss of Service, unless canceled by either Descope or you, by a written notice, at least thirty (30) days prior to its expiration, the Agreement shall automatically renew by default, at the then applicable fees, for a renewal period equal in time to the original Agreement term set forth in the Order (excluding any renewal period).

Upon termination, all licenses, and rights granted hereunder shall immediately expire and any and all use and/or exploitation by you or the Users of the Service, and any part thereof, shall immediately cease and expire.

The provisions of Section 6 (privacy, data protection and security) shall continue to apply to such data. You acknowledge that following the aforesaid fifteen (15) day term we may delete all Customer Data without retaining any copy.
All the provisions of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination (including, without limitation, confidentiality, ownership and intellectual property, warranty disclaimers, limitations of liability and indemnification) shall remain in full force and effect following termination thereof, for any reason whatsoever. The termination of this Agreement shall not relieve you from any obligation arising or accruing prior to such termination or limit any liability which you otherwise may have towards Descope.

The above duty to indemnify is contingent upon your provision, without delay, of a notice of any such claim, to Descope, allowing Descope to control the defense and settlement of any such claim and reasonably cooperating (at Descope's expense) with Descope in connection with the foregoing.
Descope shall have no duty to indemnify to the extent that the liability arises from: (i) modification to the Services or any part thereof made not by Descope; (ii) use of the Service not in accordance with this Agreement and/or any documentation provided by Descope; or (iii) where the liability arises from the combination of the Service with other product, software or platform, where the Services standing-alone would not have caused such liability.

A party will disclose the other party’s Confidential Information only to its employees and consultants who need to know such information to perform under this Agreement, and only after informing such recipients that the information must be protected as confidential and may be used only for the performance of this Agreement. A party is responsible for any disclosure or misuse of Confidential Information by its employees or consultants.

The receiving party will disclose only such information as is legally required and will use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain confidential treatment for any Confidential Information that is so disclosed. Each party acknowledges that money damages may not adequately protect the disclosing party against actual or threatened breach of this Agreement and that such breach could result in irreparable harm to the disclosing party.

In the event of any unauthorized use, disclosure, loss of, or inability to account for any Confidential Information, the receiving party shall immediately, without undue delay, notify the disclosing party upon becoming aware thereof and shall (i) assist with remedying each unauthorized use or disclosure, and (ii) will cooperate with the disclosing party in any litigation brought by the disclosing party against third parties to protect its rights in the Confidential Information. Rendering of assistance does not alleviate any obligation under this section, nor does acceptance of such assistance constitute a waiver of any breach of this section.
“Confidential Information” means all non-public information or materials, including information and materials disclosed prior to the date of this Agreement, that are marked as confidential, orally described as confidential, or should reasonably be understood to be confidential, including, without limitation, personal information (as such term is defined under applicable law), However, Confidential Information, that is not personal information (as such term is defined under applicable law), does not include anything that (i) was previously known to the receiving party without any confidentiality obligation, (ii) is or becomes publicly known through no wrongful act of the receiving party, (iii) was rightfully received from a third party without any confidentiality obligation to that third party, or (iv) was independently developed by the receiving party without using any Confidential Information.
Any separate non-disclosure agreement executed between the parties prior to the date hereof is hereby terminated and replaced by the foregoing Confidentiality provision.
