These terms of service (the “Agreement”) contains the terms and conditions that apply to the provision of the Service Delivery Platform (the “Service” or the “Platform”, further defined below) by The Pythian Group Inc. (“Pythian”) to the Organization (defined below) that you represent (“You”). If you are accessing and using the Platform also as an individual user, the terms that apply to you as an individual User (defined below) are found at TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR USERS (“User Terms”). You represent to Pythian that You are lawfully able to enter into contracts (e.g., you are not a minor) and that You have legal authority to bind Your Organization. By completing the registration process, submitting an order for the Platform or using the Platform You agree to all the terms of this Agreement, including the User Terms, if applicable, and the Acceptable Use Policy, the Privacy Policy and any other policies or terms incorporated by reference into this Agreement (“Policies”).


    1. Subscription Process/Tehama Account Registration. You must register an account for the Organization at https://tehama.io/ (“Site”), with an email address, payment method information associated with it and any other information requested for the Organization on the Site (“Service Account”). Information about You provided in connection with the creation or administration of a Service Account is the “Account Information”, and includes without limitation, names, usernames, phone numbers, email addresses and billing information. Only one account per e-mail address can be created.

    2. Service Offering.
      1. The Service Described. The Platform is a business-to-business service and is a cloud-based technology that enables an Organization (the “Connected-To Organization”) to receive IT services remotely from another Organization, through a secure and audited virtual private extension of the Connected-To Organization’s IT network (“Room”). Individual users (“Users”) may create an account on the Site at any time with a valid e-mail address (“User Account”). Any Users and Organizations you invite to use the Platform under your Service Account become “Members” of your Organization. Users participating in a Room are “Room Users”. Organizations and Room Users may submit software (including machine images), data, text, audio, video and images (“Content”) to the Platform. Pythian or any of its affiliates may make its own Content (“Tehama Content”) available to Organizations and Room Users in connection with the Platform. You will find detailed description of the Service model at TEHAMA - DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE MODEL.
      2. Subscription Plan. The Service is purchased as a subscription through an Order Form. “Subscription Plan” means a multi-tier price plan composed of a Room option, a desktop option and a support plan. Pythian offers a variety of options for You to build Your Subscription Plan based on Your own Organization’s requirements. For more information about Subscription Plans, visit Organization Plans.
      3. Service Level Agreement. The Service Level Agreement is offered in connection with the paid version of the Service and is located at https://app.tehama.io/policies/sla/. Pythian may discontinue or modify the Service Level Agreement offered in its sole discretion in accordance with section 12.7.
      4. Access Enablement. Pythian assumes that You will have existing Internet connectivity and appropriate bandwidth in order for You and Your Members to use the Platform. Pythian will not have any obligation to establish a point-to-point connection between Organizations participating in a Room, other than through the Platform. For more information refer to the Documentation.
    3. Scope of Application. This Agreement governs Your use of and access to the Platform only and it does not govern any contractual relationship that You may have with other Organizations who participate in a Room. Pythian will not be responsible for (a) any contract negotiation process required to conclude commercial terms between You and other Organizations (except if that other Organization is Pythian); (b) complying with any obligation acquired by You under any commercial terms You execute with other Organizations or any breach thereof, and (c) adjudicating or otherwise becoming involved in any dispute between You and Your Members, other Users or Organizations.

    4. Trial. If You as an Organization register a Service Account on the Site for a free trial, Pythian will make available the Platform to the Organization under the terms of this Agreement and the trial terms available at TEHAMA TRIAL TERMS. You are encouraged to review the Documentation, and information about Subscription Plan options provided in the Organization Plans during the trial period, so that You become familiar with the features of the Service and Subscription Plan options offered before purchasing a Subscription Plan. Notwithstanding any representations, warranties, exclusive remedies and disclaimers made in this Agreement, the trial version of the Platform is provided “as-is” without warranties of any kind.

    5. Violations by Users. You are responsible for (a) all activities performed by the Users within Your Organization, whether under Your Service Account or under another Organization’s Service Account, and (b) all activities that occur under Your Service Account by any of Your Members. You will ensure that all Users You are responsible for use the Platform in compliance with the terms of this Agreement, and You will notify Pythian immediately if You become aware of any violation of the terms of this Agreement by any such User. In addition, You agree that (i) if You are the Connected-To Organization, You will immediately terminate such User’s access to the Service or (ii) if You are not the Connected-To Organization, to notify the Connected-To Organization about the violation.

    1. Intellectual Property Rights (“IP Rights”). IP Rights are all rights and interests in and to intangible, intellectual or industrial property that may be protected or that may arise under the laws of Canada, the United States or any other jurisdiction in the world, whether registered or not, including rights in and to writings and other copyrightable works of authorship (including software and compilations), databases, moral rights, patents, inventions, designs, trade secrets, formulae, data models, algorithms, methods, processes, know-how, Confidential Information, trademarks, service marks, logos, trade names, domain names, brand elements and other indicia of origin, and any and all goodwill, registrations and applications associated with any of the foregoing.

    2. Permission to Use the Platform (“License”). Pythian, its affiliates or third party licensors own and reserve all IP Rights in and to the Platform and the Tehama Content that Pythian makes available to You. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, Pythian grants You a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-transferrable License to access and use the Platform, which includes the installation of software agents on Your systems, and the Tehama Content only in accordance with this Agreement. For clarity, if You are the Room Owner but not the Connected-To Organization, the Connected-To Organization’ authorization is required, in addition to this License, for You and Your proposed Members to access the Room.

      During the term of this Agreement and after, You agree that You will not assert, or authorize, assist or encourage any third party to assert any claim that the Platform or any Tehama Content infringes any IP Rights. Except as provided in this section 2.2, You do not obtain any rights under this Agreement from Pythian or our third party licensors to the Platform or the Tehama Content, including any IP Rights.

      This Agreement is not intended to modify in any way the licensing or warranty (or any disclaimer thereof) of commercial software products separately purchased by You from Pythian or any third party, or any other transaction except as expressly provided herein.

    3. Restrictions. In accessing and using the Platform, You will not attempt to: (a) reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or otherwise work around limitations in the Platform; (b) license, sell, rent, lease, transfer, assign, distribute, display, host, disclose, permit timesharing or service bureau use or otherwise make the Platform or any Tehama Content commercially available to any third party other than in accordance with the terms of this Agreement; (c) access and/or use the Platform and the Tehama Content other than in accordance with the terms of this Agreement; (d) remove or modify any Pythian or third party’s copyright notices in the Platform or the Tehama Content; (e) access or use the Platform to build or support the building of products or services that are competitive to the Platform provided under this Agreement; and (f) copy, reproduce, distribute, republish, download, post, display or transmit in any form or by any means the Tehama Content or any other information relating to the Platform, except as permitted by this Agreement.

    4. Organization Content. As between You and Pythian, You retain all IP Rights in and to any Content that You or Your Room Users submit to the Platform (“Organization Content”). Except as provided in this section 2.4, Pythian does not obtain any rights under this Agreement from You with respect to Your Organization Content, including any IP Rights. You hereby consent to Pythian’s use of Your Organization Content to provide the Service to You and Your Room Users. You represent to Pythian that (a) You or Your licensors own all IP Rights in and to Your Organization Content; (b) You have all rights in Your Organization Content necessary to grant Pythian the rights contemplated by this Agreement; and (c) none of Your Organization Content or Your authorized Room Users’ use of Your Organization Content, the Platform and the Tehama Content will violate the Site Terms of Use or the Policies.

    5. Recordings. You acknowledge and agree that work and other activities performed in the Room may be monitored and audited and that Service-generated video recordings of work sessions, and records of events and other activities performed in a Room by Room Users (“Recordings”) may be made. The following rules apply with respect to Recordings:

      1. The Connected-To Organization and the Room Owner will have the right to (i) view and audit the work and other activities performed in the Room by any Room Users and (ii) download a copy of the Recordings for its internal business purposes only. Where the Connected-To Organization wishes to prevent other Organizations and their Users participating in the Room from exercising the rights described above, the Connected-To Organization must be also the Room Owner. Notwithstanding the foregoing, where Pythian acts as the Room Owner and/or provides services to the Connected-To Organization using the Platform, the Connected-To Organization hereby agrees that Pythian will have the right to exercise the rights described above.

      2. The Connected-To Organization will have the right to opt for storage services with respect to the Recordings, provided it has and maintains a valid Subscription Plan. Where the Room Owner is not the Connected-To Organization, it will require express consent from the Connected-To Organization and a valid Subscription Plan to opt for storage services with respect to Recordings capturing such Connected-To Organization’s Content.

      3. Pythian will have the right to retain a copy of the Recordings made in any Room and to use the Recordings for business purposes such as observing, analyzing and learning data trends and patterns, and developing new and/or improved products and services.

      4. Nothing in this section 2.5 is intended to waive or alter any confidentiality obligations that any party may have with respect to another party’s Content, including Content captured in the Recordings.
    6. Aggregated Data. In the provision of the Service, Pythian may collect usage data collected or generated by the Platform in connection with an Organization and its Room Users use of the Platform (“Aggregated Data”), including by capturing the Aggregated Data in the Recordings. Aggregated Data includes, without limitation, metadata, security and access roles, usage policies, permissions, usage statistics and analytics, but only in aggregate, anonymized form, in such way that it can in no way be linked specifically to such Organization and/or its Room Users. So long as Pythian does not disclose Your Confidential Information, Pythian will have the right to use any Aggregated Data for the purposes of refining, supplementing, testing or improving the Platform, including, without limitation, by performing heuristics, statistical analysis, and cohort analysis; for developing best practices and for training purposes. Pythian will have the right to retain the Aggregated Data after termination of this Agreement for the purposes identified above.

      Pythian’s collection, aggregation and anonymizing operations are performed with appropriate safeguards in place. If the Aggregated Data is information that identifies or could identify an individual, such individual may opt his/her information out of the Aggregated Data by notifying Pythian at https://app.tehama.io/support.

    7. Special Dependencies. The use of the Platform may require the use of other software and the Platform may not operate, or operate properly, without such software. The known software dependencies are set forth in the Documentation.

    8. Third Party Content. You acknowledge and agree that the Platform includes certain third party Content (including third party software) as referenced in the Documentation, which is distributed to You solely under the terms set forth in the respective license agreements associated with such third party Content and You acknowledge and agree that this Agreement in no way supplements or detracts from any term or condition contained therein. By accepting this Agreement, You are also accepting the terms of the license agreements that apply to such Third Party Content.

    1. Fees and Payment Terms. You will pay Pythian the fees identified in the Order Form (“Fees”) applicable to the Subscription Plan You select on the Site, and in accordance with the payment terms specified in the Order Form. Except as otherwise provided in the applicable Order Form, Fees must be paid in advance. Payment obligations are non-cancelable and, except as provided in this Agreement, are not refundable. Detailed information about payment terms is found at TEHAMA - FEES and PAYMENT TERMS.

    2. Taxes. All fees payable under this Agreement are exclusive of, and You are responsible for, all applicable taxes and duties, including sales and use taxes, goods and services taxes, value-added taxes (“VAT”), excise, business, service and similar transaction taxes imposed by any jurisdiction and the interest and penalties thereon, excluding taxes based on Pythian’s income (“Taxes”). Taxes will not be deducted from the payments to Pythian, except as required by law, in which case You shall increase the amount payable as necessary so that after making all required deductions and withholdings, Pythian receives and retains (free from any Taxes liability) an amount equal to the amount it would have received had no such deductions or withholdings been made. Your obligation under this section 3.2 will survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement.

    1. Security. Without limiting section 6 of this Agreement, Pythian will implement reasonable and appropriate measures designed to help You secure Your Organization Content against accidental or unlawful loss, access or disclosure. As of the Effective Date of this Agreement, Pythian uses Amazon Web Services as its platform hosting IT Services Provider (“Hosting Provider”). For information about the security provided by Hosting Provider, visit the Hosting Provider Security Centre page at https://aws.amazon.com/security/. Pythian will notify You if it changes its Hosting Provider or adds more hosting providers to its hosting infrastructure. You acknowledge that no data transmission over the Internet or data storage system can be guaranteed to be a 100% secure or reliable.

    2. Data Privacy. Pythian will store Your Organization Content in the regions made available at https://app.tehama.io/policies/datastorage and You hereby consent to the storage of Your Organization Content in, and the transfer of Your Organization Content into, the region that is made available or, if there are more than one region available, in the region that You choose. Pythian will not access Organization Content except as necessary to maintain or to provide the Service, or as necessary to comply with applicable law. Pythian will not disclose Organization Content to any government or third party, except as required to comply with applicable law, and in any such event, if permitted by applicable law, Pythian will notify You of any legal requirement or court order as to enable You to seek a protective order. Pythian will only use Account Information in accordance with Pythian’s Privacy Policy, and You hereby consent to such use. For the reasons set out in section 5.3, the Privacy Policy does not apply to the Organization Content.

    1. Responsibilities with respect to Your Content. You acknowledge that You maintain control over Your Organization Content and for managing and controlling Your individual Content security requirements, including, without limitation, deciding what Organization Content You choose to store on the Platform and the region where it will stored, whether the Organization Content will be encrypted, the format and structure of the Organization Content and whether it is masked or anonymized, the Users who may have access to Organization Content and how such access can be revoked. You will be solely responsible for the development, content, operation, maintenance, and use of Your Organization Content, including, without limitation, the technical operation of Your Organization Content; compliance of Your Organization Content with the Policies and the law; any claims relating to Your Organization Content; and processing notices sent to You by any person claiming that Your Organization Content violates such person’s rights.

    2. Responsibilities with respect to Security and Backup. Pythian provides You with certain features and functionalities that You may elect to use.

You are responsible for taking Your own steps to maintain appropriate security, protection and backup of Your Organization Content in Your own internal infrastructure, which may include the use of encryption technology to protect Your Organization Content from unauthorized access and for routine archiving Your Organization Content.

    3. Responsibilities with respect to Personal Information. You acknowledge that Pythian has no control over the type of Content You collect or use with the Platform or over the purpose for which You use such information. If Your Organization Content includes personally identifiable information, You are responsible for protecting such information and for complying with applicable law when processing, transferring to another Organization or otherwise using such information through Your use of the Platform. Pythian will not assume any liability or obligation with respect to personally identifiable information other than Account Information.

    You will, at Your own cost and expense, defend Pythian, its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, subcontractors, agents, successors and permitted assignees (collectively the “Pythian Indemnitees”) from and against any third party claims, actions, demands and proceedings (“Claim(s)”) and will indemnify and hold harmless Pythian for all liabilities, damages, costs and expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees), directly or indirectly resulting from or arising out of or relating to any Claim(s) concerning:

    1. the use of the Platform by You, the Users and the Members of Your Organization;
    2. a breach of this Agreement, including without limitation a breach of Your obligations under section 2, by You or Users within Your Organization or Members of Your Organization;
    3. a violation of applicable law by You, the Users and Members of Your Organization and Your Organization Content including, without limitation, data privacy Claims resulting from such breach or violation;

    6. a response by Pythian to a third party subpoena or other compulsory order or process in connection with a Claim described above.
    Pythian will promptly notify You of any Claim, provided, however, that Pythian’s failure to promptly notify will not affect Your obligations under this section 6, except to the extent such failure materially impacts Your ability to defend the Claim. You may use counsel of Your choosing to assume the defense of any Claim, subject to Pythian Indemnitee(s)’ written consent, and You may settle the Claim as You consider appropriate, subject to prior written consent of Pythian Indemnitee(s). Pythian Indemnitee(s) may also undertake the defense and settlement of a Claim at any time.


    The Platform is provided “as is”. Pythian makes no warranty or representations of any kind, whether express, implied, statutory or otherwise, regarding the Platform or any Content, including any warranties that the Platform or any Content will be uninterrupted, error free or free of harmful components, or that any Content, including Your Organization Content, will be secure or not lost or damaged. Except to the extent prohibited by law, Pythian and its affiliates and licensors disclaim all warranties, including the implied warranties against infringement and the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, satisfactory quality or quiet enjoyment, and any warranties arising out of any course of dealing or usage of trade. Pythian does not make any warranty or accepts any liability with respect to any third party Content.


    1. To the extent allowed by applicable law, except for a breach of Your obligations under section 2.2 and 2.3 and Your indemnification obligations under section 7 of this Agreement, neither party nor its affiliates and their respective personnel, will be liable for damages in the nature of expectation losses, indirect, special, reliance, incidental or consequential losses, or any loss of business profits, loss of data or other expected benefit or losses of any kind of any third party. Further, Pythian will not be liable for (a) any compensation, damages or reimbursement in connection with (i) Your inability to use the Platform as a result of termination of this Agreement for any reason or suspension of Your access to the Platform, (ii) as a result of discontinuation of the Platform, or (iii) without limiting any obligations under the Platform Service Level Agreement, any unanticipated or unscheduled downtime of all or portions of the Platform for any reason; (b) the cost of procurement of substitute goods or services; (c) any investments, expenditures or commitments made by You in connection with this Agreement or its use or access of the Platform; and (d) any unauthorized access to, alteration of, or deletion, destruction, damage, loss or failure to store any of Your Organization Content or other data.

    2. Notwithstanding any other provision contained herein or elsewhere, except for a breach of Your obligations under section 2.2 and 2.3 and Your indemnification obligations under section 7 of this Agreement, neither You nor Pythian, its Affiliates and their respective personnel’s total aggregate liability for any reason and upon any cause of action, whether in tort (including negligence), contract, or any other legal theory will at all times and in the aggregate be limited to the fees paid to Pythian by You for the use of the Platform during the 12 months preceding the incident giving rise to the claim. Multiple claims will not expand this limitation.

    3. Each party acknowledges that the other has set its prices and entered into this Agreement in reliance upon the limitations of liability and the disclaimers of warranties set forth herein, and that the same form an essential basis of the bargain between the parties. This section 8 will be given full effect even if any remedy specified in this Agreement is deemed to have failed in its essential purpose.

    During the term of this Agreement a party to this Agreement (“Discloser”) may disclose to the other party (“Recipient”) nonpublic technical, financial or business information in connection with the Platform, which is either designated as confidential if disclosed in writing, or identified as confidential at the time of disclosure if disclosed orally, or which, given the nature of the information or the circumstances surrounding its disclosure, should reasonably be understood to be confidential (“Confidential Information”). In the case of Pythian, Confidential Information includes: (a) nonpublic information relating to the Platform, Pythian, its Affiliates, business partners, customers, business plans, promotional and marketing activities, finances and other business affairs; (b) third-party information that Pythian is obligated to keep confidential, including information about Hosting Provider’s technology, if any is disclosed with authorization of Hosting Provider; and (c) the nature, content and existence of any discussions between the You and Pythian. Confidential Information does not include any information that: (i) is or becomes publicly available without breach of this Agreement; (ii) can be shown by documentation to have been known to the Recipient at the time of receipt from Discloser; (iii) received from a third party who did not acquire or disclose the same by a wrongful or tortious act; or (iv) can be shown by documentation to have been independently developed by Recipient without reference to Confidential Information of Discloser.

    Recipient agrees that it will hold the Discloser’s Confidential Information in confidence and that it will exercise reasonable care to protect the Discloser’ Confidential Information from unauthorized disclosure, which standard of care will in no event be less than the Recipient takes to protect its own Confidential Information of a like nature. Recipient may use Confidential Information only in connection with the Platform and may not disclose it to any third party, except to its employees, contractors, agents (“Representatives”) and Representatives of its Affiliates who have a need to know in connection with the purpose of this Agreement, and provided such Representatives are bound by obligations of confidentiality at least as restrictive as those contained in this Agreement. Recipient’s duty to hold Confidential Information in confidence expires five (5) years following termination of the Agreement. The expiration of the duty of confidentiality will not modify other restrictions on Recipient, including, for example, any restrictions under patent or copyright laws.


    Pythian reserves the right to suspend Your access to and use of the Platform (including access and use by any of Your Members or Room Users) immediately upon notice to You if:

    1. Your or any Room User or Member’s use of the Platform (i) poses a risk to the Platform or any third party; (ii) may adversely impact the Platform or the Content of any other Tehama client; (iii) may subject Pythian, its affiliates or any third party to liability and/or (iv) may be fraudulent.

You acknowledge that the Platform is not intended for configuring, supporting or otherwise servicing on-line control equipment in hazardous environments requiring fail-safe performance, such as, but not limited to, nuclear facilities, aircraft navigation, aircraft communications systems, air traffic control, direct life support machines or weapons systems, in which failure of the products could lead directly to death, personal injury, or severe physical or environmental damage.

If such good faith negotiations between the parties’ initial Representatives do not resolve the dispute after 10 business days, it shall be escalated to senior executives for further good faith negotiations. If the senior executives are unable to resolve the dispute within 10 business days, then either party may initiate litigation.  Notwithstanding the foregoing or any other provision in this Agreement or elsewhere, either party may seek a preliminary injunction, attachment or other judicial relief, if such action is necessary to avoid irreparable harm, preserve the status quo or preserve and protect the subject matter of the dispute.  Despite such action, the parties will continue to participate in good faith dispute resolution negotiations as set out herein. If either Party initiates legal proceedings to enforce a term of the Agreement, the prevailing Party will be entitled to recover reasonable lawyers’ fees and disbursements and reasonable experts’ and other witness costs.
