BY USING OR ACCESSING VMWARE GO, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS VMWARE GO TERMS OF SERVICE AGREEMENT (“AGREEMENT”). IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, YOU MAY NOT USE OR ACCESS VMWARE GO. “YOU” MEANS THE NATURAL PERSON OR THE ENTITY THAT IS AGREEING TO BE BOUND BY THIS AGREEMENT, THEIR EMPLOYEES AND THIRD PARTY CONTRACTORS THAT PROVIDE SERVICES TO YOU. YOU SHALL BE LIABLE FOR ANY FAILURE BY SUCH EMPLOYEES AND THIRD PARTY CONTRACTORS TO COMPLY WITH THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT.
1. Grant and Use Rights
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, VMware grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable license, without rights to sublicense, to use the VMware Go and the trial version of the VMware Go Pro Services (collectively the “Services”). If you purchase a license to the fee-based version of the VMware Go Pro Services, VMware grants to you, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, a non-exclusive, non-transferable license, without a right to sublicense, to use such VMware Go Pro Services during your paid subscription term. The VMware Go and VMware Go Pro Services will be collectively referenced in this Agreement as “the Services.” You may use the Services for your internal operations only. The Services are licensed for use by the user within your organization who created the user ID and password for an account; and the account may not be accessed and the Services may not be used by any other individual using the same user ID and password of such account. All rights not expressly granted to you by this Agreement are reserved by VMware.
You agree not to reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, trade, resell or exploit for any commercial purposes, any portion or use of, or access to, the Services. You may not access or use the Services to provide assessments or prepare proposals for third parties. You may not create, develop, license, install, use, or deploy any software or services to circumvent, enable, modify or provide access, permissions or rights which violate the grant and use rights of the Services or technical restrictions in VMware software products that are associated with the Services.
3. Support Services
Support for the Services shall be provided to you in accordance with the VMware Software as a Service Support Policies located at http://www.vmware.com/support/policies/saas-support.
4. Your Account, Password and Access
You warrant that you or your employees, if any, understand and agree that the right to access the Services is granted because you have sponsored their participation, and if at any time you no longer have such right or you no longer extend that sponsorship to them, you must cease their access and use of the website. You are responsible for authorizing and controlling access to the Services, maintaining the confidentiality of user IDs and passwords and are responsible for any use that occurs under such user IDs and passwords. VMware is not liable for any losses, damages, claims, demands, actions, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs) arising from or created by any of your acts or omissions related to the access or use of the Services. You acknowledge and agree that the content on the Services, including but not limited to text, software, graphics and other information presented to you is subject to and protected by copyright, trademarks, service marks, patents, or other proprietary rights and relevant law.
The VMware Go Pro Services are sold on an annual subscription basis and include SaaS Basic Support and Subscription Services (“SnS”). SnS is not sold separately, and Support is not provided for either the VMware Go Services or the trial version of the VMware Go Pro Services.
The subscription fees are quoted and payable in the currencies that VMware currently accepts. Fees shall be due and payable at the beginning of the Subscription Term. Payment obligations are non-cancelable and fees paid are non-refundable. Fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and such taxes, levies and duties shall be added to the Services fees. The subscription fees of the then current price list are based on annual periods that begin on the subscription start date and each anniversary thereof. You must be authorized to use the credit card number that you enter when you create a billing account. You authorize us to charge such credit card for all Services that you order for the initial subscription term and each renewal subscription term. Your subscription will be automatically renewed at the end of each subscription term unless you inform us in writing, as least 30 days before the end of the then-current subscription term, that you do not wish to renew the subscription. You are responsible for maintaining complete and accurate billing and contact information for the Services.
VMware reserves the right to modify the fees applicable to any Services upon 30 days prior written notice to you, which notice may be provided by e-mail or at the website; such new prices shall not apply to subscriptions for Services that have already been paid.
6. Data Collection
You acknowledge and agree that VMware may collect certain data and information as a result of your access or use of the Services. For terminated or defaulted accounts, any data related to the Services that is collected by VMware will only be retained for a period of one calendar year from the date that the account was terminated or defaulted. VMware may share personal information with its service providers and suppliers to the extent needed to deliver or provide information on products or services or otherwise support your business needs relating to the Services. Third party service providers and suppliers receiving personal information are expected to apply the same level of privacy protection as VMware. They are required to keep confidential the personal information received from VMware and may not use it for any purpose other than as originally intended.

8. Cancellation or Termination of Services
Payment must be made for the entire subscription term; no refund is available. If you cancel your subscription during a fully-paid subscription term, you will continue to have access to the Services for the remainder of the subscription term. There is no pro-rata credit or refund for that subscription term.
VMware may, without prior notice, immediately cease, limit your access to or suspend your account and use of the Services if you fail to comply with any term of this Agreement. VMware expressly reserves the right to suspend your account and use of the Services in the event you fail to pay the fees in full and on time.
VMware reserves the right to cease operation of any or all of the Services. In such an event, you will be given 30 days notice by e-mail or at the website prior to the termination date ("End of Availability"). VMware will, however, continue to provide Support for your paid subscription to the VMware Go Pro Services for the period specified for such Services in the VMware Lifecycle Policies located at https://www.vmware.com/support/policies/lifecycle/.
9. Limitation of Liability and Indemnity

THESE LIMITATIONS SHALL APPLY NOTWITHSTANDING ANY FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY.
You agree to indemnify and hold VMware and its affiliates and suppliers harmless from any and all claims, liability and expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees and costs, arising out of your use of the Services or breach of this Agreement (collectively referred to as "Claims").
