TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WITHSECURE AND ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS, RESELLERS AND DISTRIBUTORS MAKE NO WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ABOUT THE SOLUTION. THE SOLUTION IS PROVIDED “AS IS”. WITHSECURE DOES NOT GUARANTEE THE COMPLETENESS OR ACCURACY OF THE RESULTS OR THAT THE SOLUTION WILL FIND ALL SECURITY VULNERABILITIES OR DETECT ALL MALWARE OR OTHER HARMFUL SOFTWARE. WITHSECURE ALSO DISCLAIMS ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.

WHERE THE SOLUTION INTERACTS WITH THE SERVICES OF ANY THIRD PARTIES AND/OR WHERE ANY THIRD-PARTY INFORMATION SYSTEMS OR COMPONENTS ARE USED, ANY WARRANTIES OR SERVICES PROVIDED BY WITHSECURE ARE ONLY PROVIDED FOR THE SOLUTION AND NOT TO ANY ADJOINING SERVICES OR COMPONENTS.

No oral or written information or instructions given by WithSecure, its resellers, distributors, agents, or employees shall create a warranty and you may not rely on any such information or instructions.

6. WithSecure’s liability

IN NO EVENT AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO TORT OR CONTRACT, SHALL WITHSECURE, ITS EMPLOYEES, ITS LICENSORS, ITS RESELLERS, ITS DISTRIBUTORS OR ITS SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL OR INDIRECT DAMAGES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOSS OF REVENUE OR PROFIT, LOST OR DAMAGED DATA, FILES OR DEVICES, APPLICATION FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, NETWORK IMPAIRMENT, OR OTHER COMMERCIAL OR ECONOMIC LOSS, ARISING OUT OF THE USE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE THE SOLUTION, EVEN IF WITHSECURE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you or may apply to you only in part. WithSecure is acting also on behalf of its employees, resellers, distributors, licensors, suppliers and affiliates to disclaim, exclude and restrict obligations, warranties, and liability as provided in these Terms, but in no other respects and for no other purpose.

7. Your responsibility

You are solely responsible and assume the entire risk and liability for your use of Solution and your actions based on the results provided by the Solution.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set out in these Terms, you shall defend, indemnify and hold WithSecure, its subsidiaries, and their employees harmless from damages, liabilities, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred by WithSecure, its subsidiaries, or their employees in relation to claims and actions arising out of or relating to your use of the Solution and/or the services you provide to third parties through your use of the Solution.

8. Privacy and data collection

Data collection. You acknowledge that WithSecure needs to collect and process certain data relating to your devices and/or network for WithSecure to provide you the Solution. Since the data collected and how it is used varies per type and version of the Solution, more detailed information on personal data processing can be found in the relevant WithSecure privacy policies. Such policies are available via the Solution user interface and/or on the WithSecure website. The following summarizes what kind of data the Solution typically collects and for what purpose.

Technical and security data. For WithSecure to secure your device and/or network, most Solutions must collect and process data on your device, network and your use of the Solution. This data typically consists of object security data, analysis results, statistics, file metadata, Solution usage metrics, and other similar data. WithSecure’s design principle is to seek to limit WithSecure’s capability to link this type of data to you personally.

Personal data. WithSecure also collects and processes data in a manner that is personally identifiable to you, your employees, customers and other partners. Such data typically consists of i) data that you actively send to WIthSecure (for example contact and registration information, information to solve a support issue) and ii) data automatically collected by the Solution or triggered by your use of particular features (for example license allocation, device, and software information, user account activity, geographic location of your device, operation system, etc.), and iii) limited data sets from the above ‘Technical and security data' (for example the name of blocked malware).

Transfers, disclosures, and compliance. WithSecure may utilize its affiliates or sub-contractors to undertake any of the above data processing activities. WithSecure may disclose specific data to its resellers or other partners where so described in the applicable WithSecure privacy policy. Such parties may be located in the EEA or outside the EEA. WithSecure may also process and disclose data where it is necessary to do so to pursue legitimate interests in accordance with applicable laws.

Transparency. If the Solution is designed to be administered jointly by you, by WithSecure, and by its partners, subject to agreement, the roles and responsibilities of the parties involved in the processing of personal data in this setup are established in a specific privacy policy and you agree to inform your employees of the same.

9. Confidentiality

“Confidential Information” shall mean any confidential information disclosed by WithSecure or you to the other party in connection with the Solution that the disclosing party characterizes as confidential at the time of its disclosure either in writing or orally, or that, given the nature of the information or the circumstances surrounding its disclosure, reasonably should be considered as confidential, except for information which the receiving party can demonstrate: (a) is previously rightfully known to the receiving party without restriction on disclosure; (b) is or becomes, from no act or failure to act on the receiving party’s part, generally known in the relevant industry or public domain; (c) is disclosed to the receiving party by a third party and without restriction on disclosure; (d) is independently developed by the receiving party without access to the Confidential Information, or (e) must be disclosed to any government authority or court of law as a result of a court order. If either party is required to disclose confidential information pursuant to law, it shall notify the other party of the required disclosure. Each party shall disclose or use Confidential Information only as is necessary for the purpose for which it was disclosed and in accordance with the provisions of these Terms and to take all reasonable measures to avoid unauthorized disclosure or use of Confidential Information, no less stringent than the measures it takes to protect its own confidential information. In case of discovery of unauthorized disclosure or use of Confidential Information, the receiving party shall notify the disclosing party immediately and use all reasonable efforts to prevent any further unauthorized disclosure or use thereof.

10. Changes

WithSecure is constantly improving its services. WithSecure reserves the right to upgrade and make changes to the Solution and modify features or functionality of the Solution from time to time. Such changes may include, but are not limited to, adding new features or removing existing features. Where such an upgrade or change is not automated but provided to you as a voluntary option, you should use the latest version of the Solution for optimized security and usability. WithSecure further reserves the right to end the maintenance and support for certain versions of the Solution (including versions designed to be used in certain operation systems) in accordance with WithSecure’s product lifecycle policies, which may lead to the Solution becoming inoperable. Use of the Solution, for which the maintenance is discontinued, is not recommended and such use is entirely at your own responsibility. The product lifecycle policies and more information on product lifecycles are available on WithSecure’s website. As the Solution is likely to evolve during your subscription, WithSecure may need to revise these Terms from time to time. WithSecure shall publish the revised Terms on WithSecure’s website and/or at another interaction point where it has previously been made available. Once published, the revised Terms shall automatically cover all Solutions and installations of your subscription (does not overrule app stores' terms). In case there are material changes to the Terms, WithSecure may also notify you by other means and in this case, the revised Terms shall become effective within thirty (30) days from the communication. You accept the revised Terms by continuing to use the Solution. If any part of these Terms is found void and unenforceable, it will not affect the validity of the rest of the Terms, which shall remain valid and enforceable.
