TRIMBLE GENERAL PRODUCT TERMS
(For Cloud and Software Products)
These Trimble General Product Terms (this “Agreement”) are entered into by and between Trimble and the entity or person placing an order for or accessing any Product(s) specified in the applicable Order (“Customer” or “you”). Certain capitalized terms are defined in Section 17 (Definitions), and others are defined contextually in this Agreement.
This Agreement consists of the terms and conditions set forth below, any applicable Product-Specific Terms, any applicable Support Terms, and the Order. If you are accessing or using the Product(s) on behalf of your company, you represent that you are authorized to accept this Agreement on behalf of your company, and all references to “you” reference your company.
Effective Date. The “Effective Date” of this Agreement means the earlier of (a) the effective date of the Order, or (b) the date Trimble has first made access to a Product available to Customer, which could be by physical delivery of media (e.g., CD, dongle, etc.) or electronic or access delivery by means of an online provisioning, registration, download or other similar process (“Initial Product Availability Date”). This Agreement will govern Customer’s initial purchase(s) on the Effective Date as well as any renewals thereof (unless different terms are specified upon renewal).
Product-Specific Terms. Customer’s use of each Product is also subject to any additional product-specific terms and conditions set forth in Exhibit A or separately referenced in the applicable Order (“Product-Specific Terms”). Any conflict or inconsistency will be resolved in the following order of precedence: (1) the applicable Order, (2) the Product-Specific Terms, (3) the Support Terms, and (3) the body of this Agreement.
BY INDICATING YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THIS AGREEMENT OR INSTALLING, ACCESSING OR USING ANY PRODUCT(S), YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT. EACH PARTY EXPRESSLY AGREES THAT THIS AGREEMENT IS LEGALLY BINDING UPON IT. IF YOU HAVE PAID A FEE FOR USE OF THE PRODUCT(S) AND DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOU MAY RETURN THE PRODUCT(S) FOR A FULL REFUND, PROVIDED YOU (A) HAVE NOT INSTALLED, ACCESSED, OR USED THE PRODUCT(S) AND (B) RETURN THE PRODUCT(S) WITHIN 14 DAYS OF YOUR INITIAL PURCHASE.
1.1. Product Types. The following provisions apply to the applicable Product type (Service or Software) in the Order.
a) Service. For Product(s) that are a Service, Customer may access and use the Service during the Utilization Term only for its internal business purposes in accordance with the Documentation, Usage Limitations, any applicable Product-Specific Terms and this Agreement. Unless otherwise specified by Trimble, any Software provided with a Service is subject to the terms applicable to Software under this Agreement.
b) Software. For Product(s) that are Software, subject to the terms of this Agreement, Trimble hereby grants Customer a non-transferable, non-sublicensable, non-exclusive license solely during the Utilization Term to install, copy and use the Software on systems under Customer’s control only for its internal business purposes in accordance with the Documentation, Usage Limitations, any applicable Product-Specific Terms and this Agreement. Software is licensed not sold.
1.2. Authorized Users; Administrators.
a) Only Authorized Users may access or use any (i) Service or (ii) Software licensed on an Authorized User basis. User IDs are granted to individual, named persons, and each Authorized User will keep its login credentials confidential and not share them with anyone else. Customer is responsible for its Authorized Users’ compliance with this Agreement and actions taken through their accounts. In the event an Authorized User is no longer a Customer employee or contractor, Customer will promptly de-activate such Authorized User’s access. Only if expressly permitted under the applicable Order, Customer may transfer Authorized User status from one individual to another at any time, provided that use of the Product(s) by its Authorized Users in the aggregate remains within the Usage Limitations. Customer will promptly notify Trimble if it becomes aware of any compromise of its Authorized User login credentials.
b) If the Product permits administrator access, as described in the Documentation, Customer may designate one or more Authorized Users to be administrators (each an “Administrator”) with control over Customer’s Service account, including management of Authorized Users and Customer Data, as described in the Documentation. Customer is fully responsible for its choice of Administrators and any actions they take with respect to the Service. Trimble’s responsibilities do not extend to the internal management or administration of the Service for Customer.
1.3. API Access and Customer Applications.
a) API. The Product(s) may include one or more application program interfaces (“API(s)”) that allow Customer to develop applications, code or services that communicate with the Product (collectively, “Customer Applications”). Such APIs, if any, may be available upon request. Customer may use an API only if such use is authorized in the Documentation or otherwise in writing by Trimble. Use of APIs may be subject to additional terms and conditions. Trimble may modify APIs from time to time, and Trimble is not responsible for the compatibility of any such modifications with Customer Applications.
b) Use of Customer Applications. If use of an API is authorized, subject to the terms of this Agreement and in compliance with the applicable Documentation, Customer may develop Customer Applications for use solely by Customer’s Authorized Users. Customer will not develop Customer Applications for the benefit of, or distribute Customer Applications to, any third party. Customer assumes all risk and liability regarding the development or use of any Customer Applications. Other customers or Trimble itself may independently develop applications similar to Customer Applications.
1.4. Restrictions. Customer will not (and will not permit, encourage, or assist anyone else to) do any of the following: (a) provide access to, distribute, sell or sublicense the Product(s) to a third party, (b) use the Product(s) on behalf of, or to provide any product or service to, third parties, (c) use the Product(s) to develop a similar or competing product or service, (d) reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or seek to access the source code or non-public APIs to any element of the Product(s), except to the extent expressly permitted by Law (and then only after providing prior written notice to Trimble), (e) modify or create derivative works of the Product(s) or copy any element of the Product(s) (other than in connection with making copies of Software authorized under this Agreement), (f) remove or obscure any proprietary notices in the Product(s), (g) publish benchmarks or performance information about the Product(s), except to the extent expressly permitted by Law, (h) interfere with the Product(s)’ operation or its use by others, circumvent its access restrictions or, without the prior written permission of Trimble, conduct any security or vulnerability test of the Product(s), (i) transmit any viruses or other harmful materials to the Product(s), (j) submit to the Product(s) any information that is inappropriate, defamatory, obscene, salacious or unlawful, or use the Product(s) to defame, harass, stalk, threaten or otherwise violate the rights of others or (k) use the Product(s) to advertise, offer to sell or buy goods, or otherwise for business promotional purposes, or (i) for Software, unless expressly permitted in the Order, Product-Specific Terms or the Documentation, use or host any Software in a virtual server environment.
1.5. Trials and Betas. If Customer receives access to the Product(s) or any features thereof on a free or trial basis or as an alpha, beta or early access offering (“Trials and Betas”), use is permitted only for Customer’s internal evaluation to determine whether to purchase a full license or subscription to the Product(s) during the period designated by Trimble (or if not designated, 30 days). If Customer purchases a full license or subscription to the Product(s), this Agreement will apply to Customer’s use unless otherwise specified in the applicable Order. Trials and Betas are optional and Trimble may cease offering Trials and Betas at any time for any reason. Trials and Betas may be inoperable, incomplete or include features that Trimble may never release, and their features and performance information are Trimble’s Confidential Information. If the Product(s) includes a mechanism that limits access to Trials and Betas, Customer will not attempt to circumvent any such mechanism or restriction. Notwithstanding anything else in this Agreement: (a) Trimble has no obligation to retain Customer Data used with Trials and Betas, (b) Trimble provides the Trial and Betas “AS-IS”with no warranty, indemnity, service levels or support and (c) Trimble’s liability for Trials and Betas will not exceed US$50.
1.6. Educational Versions. Notwithstanding the foregoing, for any version of the Product(s) designated as “educational,” or a similar term, Customer may use the Product(s) solely for educational purposes (i.e., by an instructor or a student at an educational institution and while engaged in educational work). Such educational versions may not be used (a) by any other person, (b) by any educational institution for any non-educational purposes, or (c) for any for-profit purpose, including professional work or training offered for a fee, or by commercial entities.
1.7. Internet Connection. The Product(s) may require an active Internet connection or other means of electronic communications to operate, which are not the responsibility of Trimble.
1.8. Software Delivery and Deployment. Any Product(s) that are Software, and any applicable Documentation and any applicable License Keys, will be delivered by electronic means unless otherwise specified on the applicable Order. Delivery is deemed to occur on the date on which the Software and License Keys, if any, are first made available to Customer. The Software may gather and transmit to Trimble license compliance and activation data. Customer will not disable, modify or interfere with the operation of any such functionality of the Software. Trimble may use the foregoing information to validate the authenticity of Customer’s license to the Software, to register Customer’s Software, for license metering and to protect Trimble against unlicensed or illegal use of the Software.
2. Data Rights.
2.1. Data Usage and Ownership.
a) Customer hereby grants to Trimble and its affiliates the non-exclusive, worldwide, irrevocable, royalty-free right: (i) to use Customer Data during the Utilization Term to provide the Products and Professional Services to Customer; (ii) to use and disclose Customer Data as otherwise permitted pursuant to this Agreement or any written consent and/or instructions of the Customer; and, (iii) on a perpetual basis: (A) to create, use and disclose Anonymized Data for any purpose; and (B) subject to Trimble’s confidentiality obligations in Section 13 (Confidentiality) and all applicable Data Protection Legislation, to use Customer Data to develop, maintain and improve the Products(s) and any other products, software, and services of Trimble and/or its affiliates.
b) Except for Trimble’s use rights set forth in this Agreement, as between the parties, Customer retains all intellectual property and other rights in Customer Data provided to Trimble. Trimble owns all right, title and interest in Anonymized Data (including, without limitation, any and all intellectual property rights).
c) Customer will not have access to Customer Data after termination or expiration of the Utilization Term, unless otherwise indicated in the application Documentation, Order, Product-Specific Terms, or the parties agree otherwise in writing.
d) In the event of any conflict between the terms of Section 13 (Confidentiality) and this Section 2.1 (Data Usage and Ownership), the terms of this Section 2.1 (Data Usage and Ownership) will control.
2.2. Personal Information; Data Protection. The following section applies if Customer is an entity.
a) All applicable laws, rules, and regulations relating to the protection of privacy and data protection are referred to as “Data Protection Legislation”. “Personal Information” is defined as in the applicable Data Protection Legislation, or if no definition is provided, any personally identifiable information which is either (i) provided by Customer or on its behalf, or (ii) automatically collected through the Service on Customer’s behalf. “Applicable”, in this context, means the Data Protection Legislation applicable to Customer at Customer’s principal place of business or to Trimble at Trimble’s principal place of business, and such laws that Customer notifies Trimble in writing of that apply to the parties.
b) Each party will comply with all applicable requirements of the Data Protection Legislation that applies to it. This Section 2.2(b) is in addition to, and does not relieve, remove or replace, a party's obligations or rights under the applicable Data Protection Legislation.
c) The parties acknowledge that: (i) if Trimble processes any Personal Information hereunder, it is on the Customer's behalf when performing its obligations under this Agreement and (ii) the Personal Information may be transferred or stored, and/or accessed from outside of the country where the Customer’s principal place of business is located in order to provide the Service and Trimble's other obligations under this Agreement.
d) Without prejudice to the generality of Section 2.2(b), Customer will ensure that it has all necessary appropriate consents and notices in place (i) to enable lawful transfer of the personal information to Trimble for the duration and purposes of the Agreement and (ii) to enable Trimble to lawfully use, process and transfer the Personal Information in accordance with this Agreement, including on the Customer's behalf.
e) If the processing of Personal Information by Trimble is subject to the General Data Protection Regulation ((EU) 2016/679) or the Data Protection Act 2018 of the United Kingdom, then, in addition, at the request of Customer, then the parties will execute an applicable data processing addendum.
f) If the processing of Personal Information by Trimble is subject to the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (Title 1.81.5, §1798.100 et. seq.) (“CCPA”), then in addition, in connection with a verified request by a data subject pursuant to an exercise of rights under CCPA related to Personal Information, Trimble is Customer’s service provider, that Customer (and not Trimble) will respond to such request, and that if necessary in connection with such verified request Customer will utilize the tools and information provided or made generally available by Trimble, such as Trimble’s online portals or APIs and standard documentation regarding Trimble’s products, software and services. To the extent such tools do not enable Customer to respond to a verified request, upon Customer’s request Trimble will provide reasonable assistance with respect to Personal information in Trimble’s systems that is required for Customer’s response to such request. A consumer request to delete Personal Information will not require Trimble to delete Personal Information required to provide Customer with the Product(s), which includes any of Trimble’s service provider(s) acting on Trimble’s behalf to provide the Product(s); provided, however, that such service provider(s) do not have a separate right to sell or use Customer’s Personal Information other than as required for Trimble’s business purposes.
3. Customer Obligations.
3.1. Compliance with Laws. Customer is responsible for complying with all applicable Laws in its use of the Product(s) and any results derived from the Product(s)
3.2. No High Risk Activities. Customer will not use the Product(s) for High Risk Activities. Customer acknowledges that the Product(s) are not intended to meet any legal obligations for High Risk Activities.
3.3. No Prohibited Data. Customer will not use the Product(s) with Prohibited Data. Customer acknowledges that the Product(s) are not intended to meet any legal obligations for these uses, including HIPAA requirements, that Trimble is not a Business Associate as defined under HIPAA.
3.4. Customer Data. Customer is responsible for its Customer Data, including its content and accuracy and compliance with Laws. Customer represents and warrants that it has made all disclosures and has all rights, consents and permissions necessary to use its Customer Data with the Product(s) and grant Trimble the rights in Section 2.1 (Data Use and Ownership), all without violating or infringing Laws, third-party rights (including intellectual property, publicity or privacy rights) or any terms or privacy policies that apply to its Customer Data.
4. Suspension of Access to Product(s). Trimble may suspend Customer’s access to the Product(s) and/or Support, without liability, and in whole or in part, if Customer breaches Section 1.4 (Restrictions) or Section 3 (Customer Obligations), if Customer’s account is 30 days or more overdue or if Customer’s actions risk harm to other customers or the security, availability or integrity of the Product(s). Where practicable, Trimble will use reasonable efforts to provide Customer with prior notice of the suspension. Once Customer resolves the issue requiring suspension, Trimble will promptly restore Customer’s access to the Product(s) in accordance with this Agreement.
5. Certain Product Features. The following provisions apply to the extent applicable to the Product(s).
5.1. Devices. The Product(s) may be compatible with or require use of a device (“Device”). Compatible Devices are specified in the applicable Documentation. Trimble makes no warranties regarding the operation of any Device or continued compatibility of the Product(s) with any such Device. You are solely responsible for the configuration and operation of your Device. The results obtained through a Product may be affected by, and Trimble will have no liability for, the compatibility, placement, configuration or operation of your Device, weather or other environmental conditions, color or composition of materials being scanned, or other factors outside of Trimble’s control.
5.2. Use with other Trimble Products. The Product(s) may allow Customer to connect with other Trimble products or services. Use of such other products or services that are not part of the Product(s) may require payment of a separate fee and are governed by those products or services’ respective terms of service, end user license agreement, or other agreement, and not by this Agreement.
5.3. Scripts. The Product(s) may allow Customer to input and/or develop custom scripts, macros and commands (collectively, “Scripts”) that control the operation of the Product(s). Scripts may be available for download or purchase from Trimble or third parties, or created by Customer. Unless otherwise specified by Trimble in writing, Scripts are not part of the Product. Customer’s development and/or use of any Scripts are solely at its own risk. To the extent any Scripts are provided by a third party, such Scripts will be deemed to be Third-Party Materials, and may be subject to Third-Party Terms.
5.4. Third-Party Materials.
a) Generally. The Product(s) may provide Customer with access to Third-Party Materials. Third-Party Materials are not deemed to be part of the Product(s). To the extent specified by Trimble (including in any Product-Specific Terms or Documentation), use of the Third-Party Materials may be subject to additional terms or restrictions (“Third-Party Terms”). Customer is solely responsible for its compliance with any Third-Party Terms, and failure to comply with such terms may result in termination of Customer’s right to access any features of the Product(s) that utilize such Third-Party Materials. If no Third-Party Terms are specified, Customer may use Third-Party Materials solely in support of Customer’s authorized use of the Product(s) in accordance with this Agreement.
b) Open Source. The Software may incorporate third-party open source software (“Open Source”), as listed in the Documentation or Product-Specific Terms, or otherwise made available by Trimble. To the extent the terms of the Open Source license prohibit the terms of this Agreement from applying to the Open Source, the terms of the Open Source license will apply to the Open Source on a stand-alone basis instead of this Agreement.
c) Content Subscriptions. This Section 5.4(c))Content Subscriptions) applies if the Product makes available Third-Party Materials as a data or content subscription (“Subscription Content”). If you have a separate agreement with Trimble in place regarding the use of Subscription Content (the "Subscription Content Agreement"), then such Subscription Content Agreement governs the use of Subscription Content accessed through the Product, but not the use of the Product itself, which will be governed by this Agreement. If no Subscription Content Agreement is in place, then, unless otherwise authorized by Trimble in writing, such Subscription Content may only be used solely for Customer’s internal purposes during the applicable Utilization Term and only when accessed pursuant to a manual end user request. Customer will not: (i) access, extract or download any Subscription Content, or portions thereof, in batch or mass by any means, (ii) sell, offer to sell, rent, sublicense or transfer any copies of the Subscription Content, or portions thereof, to a third party or allow a third party to use the Subscription Content; (iii) use the Subscription Content to develop services or products for sale or include any portion of the Subscription Content in any product or service; (iv) use any portion of the Subscription Content to create a competitive service, product or technology; (v) recreate the Subscription Content or create otherwise a separate database or other repository of Subscription Content, (vi) use Subscription Content to train, augment, or correct another database or information repository, or (vii) make any portion of the Subscription Content available to the public in any manner. Upon notice from Trimble and/or any termination or expiration of the Utilization Term, Customer will immediately cease using and delete/destroy all electronic and physical copies of Subscription Content.
5.5. Third-Party Platforms. Customer may choose to use the Product(s) with Third-Party Platforms. Third-Party Platforms are not deemed to be part of the Product(s). Use of Third-Party Platforms is subject to Customer’s agreement with the relevant provider and not this Agreement, and may enable data exchange between the Product(s) and Third-Party Platform. Trimble does not control and has no liability for Third-Party Platforms, including their security, functionality, operation, availability or interoperability or how the Third-Party Platforms or their providers use Customer Data. If Customer enables a Third-Party Platform with a Product(s), Trimble may access and exchange Customer Data with the Third-Party Platform on Customer’s behalf.
5.6. Third-Party Application Stores.
a) Purchase from Application Store. If Customer obtained Software through a third-party application store, marketplace or other site or service (each, an “Application Store”), such Application Store is considered a “Reseller” under this Agreement, and Customer’s use of the Software is subject to Section 7.3 (Purchase from Reseller) of this Agreement. Except as expressly set forth in Sections 7.3 (Purchase from Reseller) and 5.6(c) (Apple-Specific Terms), all fees are non-refundable once paid. Customer’s download of the Software may be subject to other terms as specified by the operator of the Application Store from which Customer downloaded the Software.
b) In App Purchases. The Software may offer Customer the opportunity to purchase additional functions and/or features from within the application (an “In App Purchase”). All billing and transaction processes are handled by the provider of the Application Store (the “App Store Provider”) from whose platform Customer downloaded the Software and are governed by the App Store Provider’s terms and conditions. If Customer has any payment related issues with In-App Purchases, then Customer must contact the App Store Provider directly.
c) Apple-Specific Terms. If Customer downloaded the Software from Apple Inc.’s (“Apple’s”) Application Store, the following terms are part of this Agreement:
- This Agreement is between Customer and Trimble, and not with Apple. However, as required by Apple, Apple and its subsidiaries will be third party beneficiaries of this Agreement and will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce this Agreement against Customer as a third-party beneficiary.
- As set forth in Section 8 (Warranties and Disclaimers) of this Agreement, Trimble offers a refund in certain circumstances following a breach of Trimble’s limited warranty for the Software. If Customer is entitled to such a refund, Customer may notify Apple, and Apple will refund the purchase price (if any) for the Software to Customer. To the maximum extent permitted by Law, Apple will have no other warranty obligation with respect to the Software, and, as between Apple and Trimble, any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses attributable to a failure to conform to a warranty will be Trimble’s responsibility. Apple has no obligation whatsoever to furnish any maintenance or support services with respect to the Software.
- As between Trimble and Apple, Trimble is solely responsible for the Software and for addressing any claims Customer or any third parties have about the Software or your possession or use of the Software, including without limitation (A) product liability claims, (B) any claim that the Software fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement and (C) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation. In the event of any third-party claim that the Software or your possession or use of the Software infringes that third party’s intellectual property rights, Apple will not be responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement or discharge of such claim.
6. Support and Professional Services.
6.1. Service Support. During the Utilization Term, Trimble will provide the support for the Service (“Service Support”) and service level commitments specified on the applicable Order and/or the Product-Specific Terms, if any (“Service Support Terms”).
6.2. Software Support. Trimble will provide the support and maintenance services for the Software (“Software Support”) specified on the applicable Order and/or the Product-Specific Terms, if any, during such period as Customer has paid the applicable fee. Unless (a) Trimble and Customer have entered into a separate written agreement for Support or (b) different terms and conditions are set forth in the Order or Product-Specific Terms, Support will be provided pursuant to Trimble’s then-current Software Support and Maintenance Terms, available at https://www.trimble.com/support/SoftwareSSMTerms or a successor URL (any such terms and conditions from (a) or (b), “Software Support Terms”).
6.3. Professional Services. Professional Services are not covered by this Agreement. If the applicable Order indicates that Trimble will provide any Professional Services to Customer, then Trimble’s provision of and Customer’s receipt of such Professional Services will be governed by Trimble’s then-current standard Professional Services terms, available at http://www.trimble.com/legal/tandcforservices or a successor URL, unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties in writing.
7. Commercial Terms.
7.1. Utilization Term; Utilization Commencement Date; Renewal Opt Out Deadline. Unless otherwise set forth in the Product-Specific Terms or Order,
(1) the initial Utilization Term for each Product is 12 months from the Utilization Commencement Date, and each Utilization Term will renew for successive 12-month periods unless either party gives the other party notice of non-renewal by the Renewal Opt Out Deadline; and
(2) the “Utilization Commencement Date” for each Product means:
a) if Customer ordered such Product directly from Trimble, the later of (i) applicable Initial Product Availability Date, or (ii) the start date of the term indicated in the Order; or
b) if Customer ordered such Product through a Reseller, the Initial Product Availability Date.
(3) the “Renewal Opt Out Deadline” is the date that is 30 days before the expiration of the then-current Utilization Term.
7.2. Fees and Taxes. Fees are as described in each Order. Fees are invoiced on the schedule in the Order and reimbursable expenses are invoiced in arrears. Unless the Order provides otherwise, Custom will pay all fees and expenses within 30 days of the invoice date. Fees for renewal Utilization Terms are at Trimble’s then-current rates, regardless of any discounted pricing in a prior Order. Any amount due under this Agreement that remains unpaid after its due date will bear interest at the lower of 1.5% per month or the maximum rate permitted by Law, calculated from the data such amount was due until the date that payment is received. Customer will pay all costs and expenses of collection (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by Trimble collecting any amounts past due under this Agreement. Subject to any mandatory Laws to the contrary, all fees and expenses are non-refundable except as set out in Section 8.2 (Warranty Remedy). Customer will pay any sales, use, GST, value-added, withholding or similar taxes or levies that apply to its Orders, whether domestic or foreign (“Taxes”), other than Trimble’s income tax. Fees and expenses are exclusive of Taxes. Customer will pay any foreign exchange transaction fees and any foreign exchange profits or losses incurred on such transactions.
7.3. Purchase from Reseller. If Customer obtained the Product(s) through an authorized dealer, distributor or reseller of Trimble (“Reseller”), the following terms are applicable and will prevail in event of any conflict with any other provisions of this Agreement:
a) This Agreement is between Trimble and Customer and governs all access and use of the Product(s) by Customer. Resellers are not authorized to modify this Agreement or make any promises or commitments on Trimble’s behalf, and Trimble is not bound by any obligations to Customer other than as set forth in this Agreement. Trimble is not party to (or responsible under) any separate agreement between Customer and Reseller and is not responsible for the Reseller’s acts, omissions, products or services. The applicable Product(s) list price for the applicable Utilization Term will be deemed the amount paid or payable by Customer to Trimble under this Agreement for purposes of Section 11 (Limitations of Liability).
b) Instead of paying Trimble, Customer will pay the applicable amounts to the Reseller, as agreed between Customer and the Reseller. If the Reseller fails to pay Trimble the applicable fees for Customer’s use of the Product(s), Trimble reserves the right to terminate the applicable Utilization Term for such Product(s) and all related rights granted hereunder. Customer may purchase renewal Utilization Terms for the Product(s) under this Agreement directly from Trimble pursuant to an Order.
c) Customer’s order details (e.g., the applicable Product(s), the Utilization Term, Usage Limitations, Authorized Users, and any additional scope of use restrictions) will be as stated in the Order issued by Trimble (i.e., entitlement confirmation), and the Reseller is responsible for the accuracy of any such information as communicated to Trimble. Unless otherwise designated by Trimble, the Reseller is solely responsible for delivering to Customer any Product(s), and Trimble has no liability for the Reseller’s failure to deliver such materials.
d) The Reseller may fulfill Trimble’s warranty obligations under Section 8.1 (Limited Warranty) on behalf of Trimble, to the extent authorized by Trimble in writing. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Reseller has no authority to make any statements, representations, warranties or commitments on Trimble’s behalf and any such statements, representations, warranties or commitments are null and void. If the Reseller agrees to provide front-line support or professional services to Customer, Trimble has no responsibility for such Reseller-provided support or professional services.
e) In the event Customer is entitled to a refund under this Agreement, Customer must request such refund through the Reseller. Any request sent directly to Trimble may be redirected to the Reseller. Trimble will refund any applicable fees to the Reseller and the Reseller will be solely responsible for refunding such fees to Customer, unless otherwise specified by Trimble. Trimble will have no further liability to Customer in the event the Reseller fails to refund such fees to Customer.
8. Warranties and Disclaimers.
8.1. Limited Warranty. Unless otherwise specified in the Product-Specific Terms, and subject to any mandatory Laws to the contrary, Trimble warrants to Customer that during the Warranty Period the Product(s) will perform materially as described in the Documentation. The “Warranty Period” is (1) for Software that is licensed on a perpetual basis, 90 days from the Subscription Commencement Date, and (2) for any Service and/or Software that is licensed for a limited Utilization Term, the applicable Utilization Term.
8.2. Warranty Remedy. If Trimble breaches Section 8.1 (Limited Warranty) during the Warranty Period and Customer makes a reasonably detailed warranty claim within 30 days of discovering the issue, then Trimble will use reasonable efforts to correct the non-conformity or provide a work-around. If Trimble determines such remedy to be impracticable, either party may terminate the affected Order to the extent that it relates to the non-conforming Product(s). Trimble will then refund to Customer any pre-paid, unused fees for the terminated portion of the Utilization Term. Subject to any mandatory Laws to the contrary, these procedures are Customer’s exclusive remedy and Trimble’s entire liability for breach of the warranty in Section 8.1 (Limited Warranty). These warranties do not apply to (a) issues caused by misuse or unauthorized modifications, (b) unsupported versions of Software, (c) issues in or caused by Third-Party Platforms or other third-party systems or (d) Trials and Betas or other free educational or evaluation use.
a) General: EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED IN SECTION 8.1 (LIMITED WARRANTY), PRODUCT(S) AND SUPPORT ARE PROVIDED “AS IS”. TRIMBLE AND ITS SUPPLIERS MAKE NO (AND HEREBY DISCLAIM ALL) OTHER WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, NONINFRINGEMENT OR ANY WARRANTIES ARISING FROM A COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE. WITHOUT LIMITING ITS EXPRESS OBLIGATIONS IN SECTION 6 (SUPPORT AND PROFESSIONAL SERVICES), TRIMBLE DOES NOT WARRANT THAT CUSTOMER’S USE OF THE PRODUCT(S) WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, THAT TRIMBLE WILL REVIEW CUSTOMER DATA FOR ACCURACY OR THAT IT WILL MAINTAIN CUSTOMER DATA OR OTHER DATA WITHOUT LOSS. TRIMBLE IS NOT LIABLE FOR DELAYS, FAILURES OR PROBLEMS INHERENT IN USE OF THE INTERNET AND ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS OR OTHER SYSTEMS OUTSIDE TRIMBLE’S CONTROL. TRIMBLE WILL NOT BE LIABLE IN ANY MANNER FOR THE OUTPUT OBTAINED THROUGH USE OF THE PRODUCT(S) OR CUSTOMER’S RELIANCE ON SUCH OUTPUT. CUSTOMER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SUPERVISION, MANAGEMENT AND CONTROL OF CUSTOMER’S USE OF THE PRODUCT(S). THIS RESPONSIBILITY INCLUDES THE DETERMINATION OF APPROPRIATE USES FOR THE PRODUCT(S) AND THE SELECTION OF THE PRODUCT(S) AND OTHER PROGRAMS TO ACHIEVE INTENDED RESULTS. CUSTOMER IS ALSO RESPONSIBLE FOR ESTABLISHING THE ADEQUACY OF INDEPENDENT PROCEDURES FOR TESTING THE RELIABILITY AND ACCURACY OF ANY OUTPUT OF THE PRODUCT(S). CUSTOMER MAY HAVE OTHER STATUTORY RIGHTS, BUT ANY STATUTORILY REQUIRED WARRANTIES WILL BE LIMITED TO THE SHORTEST LEGALLY PERMITTED PERIOD.
b) Customer Applications. Trimble hereby disclaims any warranty, support or other obligations with respect to any Customer Applications.
c) Scripts. Subject to mandatory Laws to the contrary, Scripts are provided “AS IS” and Trimble hereby disclaims any warranty, support, or other obligations with respect to any Scripts, including, without limitation, any Scripts provided by Trimble.
d) Third-Party Materials and Third-Party Platforms. Third-Party Materials and Third-Party Platforms are provided “AS IS” and Customer assumes all risk and liability regarding any use of (or results obtained through) Third-Party Materials or Third-Party Platforms. Trimble and its suppliers make no warranty or guarantee regarding any Third-Party Materials or Third-Party Platforms, including regarding their accuracy or continued availability or compatibility.
e) High Risk Activities and Prohibited Data. Trimble and its suppliers specifically disclaim any responsibility for, and will not be liable in any manner arising from, any use of the Product(s) in connection with High Risk Activities or with any Prohibited Data.
f) Global Positioning Data. Trimble and its suppliers are not responsible for the operation or failure of operation of any Global Positioning System (“GPS”) or Global Navigation Satellite System (“GNSS”) satellites or base stations, or the availability of GPS or GNSS satellite signals. You acknowledge that use of the Product(s) is subject to transmission limitations caused by a variety of factors such as atmospheric conditions, topographical obstructions, limitations or lack of coverage of the underlying carrier service, and other natural or manmade conditions. Additionally, motor and ignition noise, metal shielding, and interference by users of the same or adjacent radio channels may limit or interfere with coverage.
9. Term and Termination.

Any provision (or part thereof) that cannot be so amended will be severed from this Agreement; and, all the remaining provisions of this Agreement will remain unimpaired.
