1. Grant and scope of Agreement
(a) our commercially available downloadable software products ("Software"), currently designated as "Standard" and "Data Center" deployments (and including any source code to the Software for which you may be provided access under this Agreement);
(b) our cloud-hosted online services ("Hosted Services"),
(together with any related documentation, the Products), and
(c) any related support or maintenance services provided by us ("Support Services").
1.2. Rights. You have no rights in, or to, any Product or Support Service other than the rights granted under this Agreement.
1.3. Software and Hosted Services. Section 3 (Software Terms) applies specifically to Software. Section 4 (Hosted Services Terms) applies specifically to Hosted Services. All other terms of this Agreement apply to all Products unless otherwise specified.
2. Machine and Target Limits
2.1. Limits. For the Octopus Deploy product, your Order may specify a limit on the number of machines or targets you can use Octopus Deploy to deploy your applications to. A "Machine" or "Target" (together, "Targets") is a server (or cloud service) that you use Octopus Deploy to deploy software to. They may be a cloud-hosted Platform-as-a-Service target, or a physical or virtual machine that Octopus communicates with using the Secure Shell (SSH) protocol or running the Octopus Tentacle agent software.
2.2. Targets. Some types of Targets may count as more than one Machine/Target towards your limit. These may change from time to time and will be listed in the Documentation.
3. Software Terms
3.1. Definitions. In this clause 3, the following terms have the specified meaning:
(a) "Data Center Deployment" means a license obtained to the Software as a Data Center deployment as defined in this clause 3.
(b) "Instance" means a running copy of the Octopus Deploy Software (which may or may not run across multiple Nodes) that has its own separate database. Instances are counted whether installed on the same physical or virtual server, or on different servers.
(c) "License Term" means the term of the license granted to you.
(d) "Node" means a single physical server upon which the Software may be installed and operate. The central Octopus Deploy service which is created as a result of operating the Software may be made highly available by running the Software across multiple Nodes (depending on the License).
(e) "Standard Deployment" means a license obtained to the Software as a standard deployment as defined in this clause 3.
3.2. Grant of License. Under the terms of this Agreement, we grant you a worldwide, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to install and use the Software for your own business purposes, during the applicable License Term.
3.3. License Term & Upgrades. The License Term will be specified in your Order. You will have access, free of charge, to all updates, upgrades and patches for the Software that we release during the License Term. You acknowledge and agree that we may, but are under no obligation to, release any update, upgrade or patch at any time or for any reason. The License Term may be extended for additional periods of time upon payment of a renewal fee before expiry of the then-current period.
3.4. Standard and Data Center Deployment. The Octopus Deploy Software is available for Standard or Data Center deployments, each of which provides different levels of availability and scalability.
(a) Under "Standard" deployment licensing, for each License that you purchase, you may install and use up to three (3) separate Instances. Instances may be used for production usage, disaster recovery, development or other purposes. Each Instance may only run on a single Node (and is therefore not highly available).
(b) Under "Data Center" deployment licensing, there are no limits to the number of Instances or Nodes that you may install and use.
If you have multiple Instances of Octopus, your Order specifies the maximum number of Targets you may deploy to in aggregate. For example, if you have 3 active Instances, the limit applies to the sum total of all Targets across all Instances. This applies to both Standard and Data Center licenses.
3.5. Source Code. If your Order includes access to the source code of the Software, we grant you a worldwide, non-exclusive, non-transferable, irrevocable license to use the source code for your own internal business purposes on the terms of this Agreement. You may view and modify the source code for the sole purposes of education, troubleshooting, and customizing features for your own particular needs. Any modified source code constitutes "Your Modifications". If you modify the source code, you may compile and distribute the resulting executable application for your own internal business purposes. You acknowledge that the source code contains our valuable intellectual property, and you agree to take reasonable measures to help ensure its confidentiality. You agree that we are not obliged to provide any technical support or error corrections in relation to any issues or problems arising out of Your Modifications. You shall indemnify, defend and hold us harmless from and against any and all claims and costs arising out of or in connection to Your Modifications, subject to you receiving (a) prompt written notice of such a claim (but in any event notice in sufficient time for you to respond without prejudice); (b) the exclusive right to control and direct the investigation, defense or settlement of such a claim, and (c) all reasonable cooperation from us at your expense.
3.6. Third Party Code. The Products may incorporate material which has been created by third parties from time to time including material licensed to us under an open source licence. To the extent applicable, we shall identify such material and where the licence for such material grants you rights which are not compatible with this Agreement (including the right to modify and distribute such material under an open licence), the terms of that license shall apply and prevail over this Agreement with respect to such material and you agree to comply with that licence with respect to that material. Subject to your compliance with the terms of this Agreement, such licences will not impose any further obligations on you.
4. Hosted Services Terms
4.1. Access to Hosted Services. Subject to your acceptance and continued compliance with the terms of this Agreement, we grant you a non-exclusive right to access and use the Hosted Services, during the applicable Subscription Term. You acknowledge that the Hosted Services are online, subscription-based products which may change from time to time.
4.2. Subscription Term & Renewals. Your Order will specify the set term during which you will have access to the Hosted Services (Subscription Term).

You acknowledge that your subscription is subject to automatic renewals and you consent to and accept responsibility for all related recurring charges to your applicable payment method without further authorization from you and without further notice unless required by law. You acknowledge that the amount of the recurring charge may change if the applicable tax rates change, or if there has been a change in the applicable fees (for which, if applicable, you will be given 90 days' notice before such change takes effect).
4.3. Fair Usage. Your usage of the Hosted Services is governed by our Acceptable Usage Policy.
4.4. Security of Your Data. We implement security measures to help protect the Hosted Services and Your Data from security attacks. However, you acknowledge and agree that as a consequence of the inherent nature of the Hosted Services, Your Data will often be transported over networks that are not owned or operated by us, and that we are not responsible for any of Your Data that is lost, intercepted, altered or stored across such networks. You acknowledge that we are unable to guarantee complete security or confidentiality of Your Data, or that third parties will never be able to defeat our security measures or those of our third-party service providers. We are General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliant: if we discover or are made aware that any of Your Data has been intercepted, we will follow the GDPR reporting guidelines if the intercepted data may have contained any personally identifiable information.
4.5. Termination, removal and suspension. We may remove Your Data from the Hosted Services, or suspend your access to the services, if we deem such action necessary based on your violation of this Agreement or our Acceptable Use Policy. We will generally provide notice and provide reasonable opportunity for you to correct your breach, but we may also suspend your access immediately without notice if we deem it necessary to protect the Hosted Services, security of other customers or to comply with the law. We have no liability to you for removing or deleting Your Data from or suspending your access to any Hosted Services.
