    2. Assignment. Customer may not assign or delegate, directly or indirectly, by operation of law, change of control or otherwise, this Agreement or any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement to any third party, and any attempt to do so will be void and of no effect.
    3. Governing Law and Venue. This Agreement will be subject to and governed by the laws of the State of Delaware, without regard to conflicts of laws principles.
    4. Government End Users. The Services are a “commercial item” as that term is defined at 48 C.F.R. 2.101, consisting of “commercial computer software” and “commercial computer software documentation” as such terms are used in 48 C.F.R. 12.212.

In such case, Expel will be entitled to immediate injunctive relief without the requirement of posting bond, including an order that any Software, or any portions thereof, that Customer attempts to import into any country or territory be seized, impounded and destroyed by customs officials. If any legal action is brought to enforce this Agreement, the prevailing party will be entitled to receive its attorneys’ fees, court costs, and other collection expenses, in addition to any other relief it may receive.
    9. Force Majeure. Any delay in the performance of any duties or obligations of either party (except the payment of money owed) will not be considered a breach of this Agreement if such delay is caused by a labor dispute, shortage of materials, fire, earthquake, flood, or any other event beyond the control of such party, provided that such party uses reasonable efforts, under the circumstances, to notify the other party of the cause of such delay and to resume performance as soon as possible.
    10. Independent Contractors. Customer’s relationship to Expel is that of an independent contractor, and neither party is an agent or partner of the other. Customer will not have, and will not represent to any third party that it has, any authority to act on behalf of Expel.

If delivered by certified or registered mail, any such notice will be considered to have been given five (5) business days after it was mailed, as evidenced by the postmark. If delivered by courier or express mail service, any such notice shall be considered to have been given on the delivery date reflected by the courier or express mail service receipt. Each party may change its contact information for receipt of notice by giving notice of such change to the other party.
    12. Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original and all of which shall be taken together and deemed to be one instrument.

For the purposes of calculating the number of Emails, phishing simulation emails (as determined by Expel or as notified by Customer) used to train Customer employees and contractors about phishing will not be counted towards the Email count, and will not be charged to the Customer. Additionally, Expel will not process simulation emails in the same way we process regular emails, e.g., Expel will disposition them as “Other” rather than benign/malicious/inconclusive and they will not result in an outcome email to the security team or reporting user.
    1. Email Analysis and Investigations. Expel will analyze Emails on a 9 am – 5 pm U.S. Eastern time basis excluding U.S. federal holidays for signs of malicious activity. If Emails are submitted outside of Normal Business Hours, Expel will review those Emails on the next business day during Normal Business Hours . If Expel determines that an Email is indicative of potentially malicious activity, Expel will create an Investigation. If the Investigation results in sufficient evidence of malicious activity, Expel will create an Incident.
    2. Event Notifications. Customer may opt-in to receiving Event Notifications from Expel, provided that Customer has the required additional technology to receive such notifications (e.g., Slack and email servers are implemented). Expel will use reasonable efforts to provide Event Notifications within ten (10) minutes of Expel identifying the Event. Event notifications will include information known to Expel at the time the Event is identified, but may not include impact and severity details customarily determined through an Investigation or Incident report.
    3. Incident Reporting. Upon confirmation of malicious activity by Expel, Expel will publish an Incident to the online user portal and notify (which may include e-mail notification) Customer of the new Incident within 10 minutes. At its discretion, Expel may perform an extended Investigation, and/or may aggregate and review multiple Emails to determine the extent of activity related to the Incident. Expel analysts may append results from the extended investigation or subsequent analysis to the initial Incident report if Expel determines that additional or subsequent Alerts are related, and in such cases, Expel will not be required to publish a separate Incident for each such related Alert.
    4. Non-Remediable Alerts. Expel has no obligation to notify Customer or generate new Incidents for new Alerts that are directly related to previously published Incidents for which Expel has already provided recommended remediation steps, when Customer has acknowledged the prior Incident but cannot, or chooses not to, remediate the cause.
    5. Portal Access. Access to Alerts, Investigations and Incidents will be provided by an online user portal.
  3.  System Performance
    1. System Availability:Expel will undertake commercially reasonable measures to ensure that System Availability equals or exceeds ninety-nine point nine five percent (99.95%) during each calendar month (the “Service Standard”).
    2. Access to Support; Response Times:Customer may report Unscheduled Downtime at any time (“24x7x365”) by sending Expel an e-mail to outage@expel.io. Expel will exercise commercially reasonable efforts to respond to reports of Unscheduled Downtime within 15 minutes of each such report.
    3. System Monitoring and Measurement: Expel uses a third party service (“Monitoring Service”) to monitor System Availability on an ongoing basis. Measurements of System Availability will be calculated on a monthly basis for each calendar month during the Term based on the records of such Monitoring Service. Customer acknowledges that the Monitoring Service may become unavailable for reasons outside Expel’s control, and in such event, Expel will make commercially reasonable efforts to notify Customer promptly in the event such unavailability materially affects Expel’s ability to monitor System Availability.
  4.  Customer Networks And Licensee Requirements. The Expel Service may only be provided for computer systems and networks leased to or owned by Customer, and under Customer’s control, up to the number of Nodes allowed, as set forth on the applicable Sales Order. Customer is responsible for maintenance and management of its computer network(s), servers, and software, and any equipment or services related to maintenance and management of the foregoing. Customer is responsible for correctly configuring its systems in accordance with any instructions provided by Expel, as may be necessary for provision of access to the features and functions of the Service
  5.  Remedy For Breach Of Section 3:
    1.  Credits Against Fees: In the event Unscheduled Downtime occurs, Customer will be entitled to credits against its subsequent payment obligations (as set forth in the Agreement) (“Service Credits”) according to the following table:
      System Availability Credit as a Percentage of One Month of Service
      99.95% – 100.00% 0%
      99.00% – 99.94% 10%
      95.00% – 98.99% 25%
      Less than 95.0% 50%

      Notwithstanding the foregoing, System Availability below 94.00% will be deemed a breach by Expel consistent with the terms of Section 11 of the Terms and Conditions. Customer’s rights under this Section 5.1 are Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy with respect to any Unscheduled Downtime or any failure by Expel to meet the Service Standard required by Section 3.1.

    2. Maximum Service Credits: The maximum amount of Service that Expel will issue to Customer for Unscheduled Downtime in a single calendar month will not exceed fifty percent (50%) of the service fees for such month.
    3. Requesting Service Credits: As a condition to Expel’s obligation to provide Service Credits to Customer, Customer must request such Service Credits by sending an e-mail identifying the date and time of the Unscheduled Downtime for which Customer is requesting Service Credits, with sufficient evidence (including description of the incident and duration of the incident) to credit@expel.io within thirty (30) days following such Unscheduled Downtime. If Customer fails to request any Service Credits to which Customer is entitled in accordance with this Section 6.3, Expel will have no obligation to issue such Service Credits to Customer.
  6. Surge. Expel classifies on-demand services not expressly outlined in the contract as Surge. Surge can be requested by the customer based on the rates outlined in the contract for those services. Examples of these requests may include, but are not limited to:
    • Manual investigations: A manual investigation is a request for Expel to review and provide feedback on an anomaly identified by the customer that was NOT generated by an alert within the Expel Workbench platform;
    • Custom workflows, such as a request from the customer to design a specific automated response based on a specific use case not developed by Expel for use in the Workbench platform for universal use;
    • Red/Blue Team exercise participation; and
    • Expel support for customer onsite/virtual events or meetings not outlined in the services contract

1. Alert Analysis and Investigations. Expel will analyze Alerts on a 24x7x365 basis for signs of malicious activity. If Expel determines that an Alert is indicative of potentially malicious activity, Expel
will create an Investigation. If the Investigation results in sufficient evidence of malicious activity, Expel will create an Incident.

2. Event Notifications. Customer may opt-in to receiving Event Notifications from Expel, provided that Customer has the required additional technology to receive such notifications (e.g., Slack and email servers are implemented). Expel will use reasonable efforts to provide Event Notifications within ten (10) minutes of Expel identifying the Event. Event notifications will include information known to Expel at the time the Event is identified, but may not include impact and severity details customarily determined through an Investigation or Incident report.

3. Incident Reporting. Upon confirmation of malicious activity by Expel, Expel will publish an Incident to the online user portal and notify (which may include e-mail notification) Licensee of the new Incident within 10 minutes. At its discretion, Expel may perform an extended investigation, and/or may aggregate and review multiple Alerts from related Covered systems to determine the extent of activity related to the Incident. Expel analysts may append results from the extended investigation or subsequent Alert analysis to the initial Incident report if Expel determines that additional or subsequent Alerts are related, and in such cases, Expel will not be required to publish a separate Incident for each such related Alert.

4. Non-Remediable Alerts. Expel has no obligation to notify Licensee or generate new Incidents for new Alerts that are directly related to previously published Incidents for which Expel has already provided recommended remediation steps, when Licensee has acknowledged the prior Incident but cannot, or chooses not to, remediate the cause of these Alerts.

5. Portal Access. Alerts, Investigations and Incidents will be provided by an online user portal.

3. System Performance

1. System Availability: Expel will undertake commercially reasonable measures to ensure that System Availability equals or exceeds ninety-nine point nine five percent (99.95%) during each calendar month (the “Service Standard”).

2. Access to Support; Response Times: Licensee may report Unscheduled Downtime at any time (“24x7x365”) by sending Expel an e-mail to outage@expel.io. Expel will exercise commercially reasonable efforts to respond to reports of Unscheduled Downtime within 15 minutes of each such report.

3. System Monitoring and Measurement: Expel uses a third party service (“Monitoring Service”) to monitor System Availability on an ongoing basis. Measurements of System Availability will be calculated on a monthly basis for each calendar month during the Term based on the records of such Monitoring Service. Licensee acknowledges that the Monitoring Service may become unavailable for reasons outside Expel’s
control, and in such event, Expel will make commercially reasonable efforts to notify Licensee promptly in the event such unavailability materially affects Expel’s ability to monitor System Availability.

4. Customer Networks and Licensee Requirements. The Expel Service may only be provided for computer systems and networks leased to or owned by Licensee, and under Licensee’s control, up to the number of Nodes allowed, as set forth on the applicable Sales Order. Licensee is responsible for maintenance and management of its computer network(s), servers, and software, and any equipment or services related to maintenance and management of the foregoing. Licensee is responsible for correctly configuring its systems in accordance with any instructions provided by Expel, as may be necessary for provision of access to the features and functions of the Service. 5. Remedy for Breach of Section 3:

1. Credits Against Fees: Credits Against Fees: In the event Unscheduled Downtime occurs, Customer will be entitled to credits against its subsequent payment obligations (as set forth in the Agreement) (“Service Credits”) according to the following table:

System Availability Credit as a Percentage of One Month of Service
99.95% – 100.00% 0%
99.00% – 99.94% 10%
95.00% – 98.99% 25%
Less than 95.0% 50%

Notwithstanding the foregoing, System Availability below 94.00% will be deemed a breach by Expel consistent with the terms of Section 11 of the Terms and Conditions.

Licensee’s rights under this Section 5.1 are Licensee’s sole and exclusive remedy with respect to any Unscheduled Downtime or any failure by Expel to meet the Service Standard required by Section 3.1.

2. Maximum Service Credits: The maximum amount of Service that Expel will issue to Licensee for Unscheduled Downtime in a single calendar month will not exceed fifty percent (50%) of the service fees for such month.

3. Requesting Service Credits: As a condition to Expel’s obligation to provide Service Credits to Licensee, Licensee must request such Service Credits by sending an e-mail identifying the date and time of the Unscheduled Downtime for which Licensee is requesting Service Credits, with sufficient evidence (including description of the incident and duration of the incident) to credit@expel.io within thirty (30) days following such Unscheduled Downtime. If Licensee fails to request any Service Credits to which Licensee is entitled in accordance with this Section 6.3, Expel will have no obligation to issue such Service Credits to Licensee.
6. Surge. Expel classifies on-demand services not expressly outlined in the contract as Surge. Surge can be requested by the customer based on the hourly rate outlined in the contract for those services. Examples of these requests may include, but are not limited to:

  • Manual investigations: A manual investigation is a request for Expel to review and provide feedback on an anomaly identified by the customer that was NOT generated by an alert within the Expel Workbench platform;
  • Custom workflows, such as a request from the customer to design a specific automated response based on a specific use case not developed by Expel for use in the Workbench platform for universal use;
  • Red/Blue Team exercise participation; and
  • Expel support for customer onsite/virtual events or meetings not outlined in the services contract.

1. System Availability: Expel will undertake commercially reasonable measures to ensure that System Availability equals or exceeds ninety-nine point nine five percent (99.95%) during each calendar month (the “Service Standard”).

2. Access to Support; Response Times: Licensee may report Unscheduled Downtime at any time (“24x7x365”) by sending Expel an e-mail to outage@expel.io. Expel will exercise commercially reasonable efforts to respond to reports of Unscheduled Downtime within 15 minutes of each such report.

3. System Monitoring and Measurement: Expel uses a third party service (“Monitoring Service”) to monitor System Availability on an ongoing basis. Measurements of System Availability will be calculated on a monthly basis for each calendar month during the Term based on the records of such Monitoring Service. Licensee acknowledges that the Monitoring Service may become unavailable for reasons outside Expel’s
control, and in such event, Expel will make commercially reasonable efforts to notify Licensee promptly in the event such unavailability materially affects Expel’s ability to monitor System Availability.

4. Customer Networks and Licensee Requirements. The Expel Service may only be provided for computer systems and networks leased to or owned by Licensee, and under Licensee’s control, up to the number of Nodes allowed, as set forth on the applicable Sales Order. Licensee is responsible for maintenance and management of its computer network(s), servers, and software, and any equipment or services related to maintenance and management of the foregoing. Licensee is responsible for correctly configuring its systems in accordance with any instructions provided by Expel, as may be necessary for provision of access to the features and functions of the Service. 5. Remedy for Breach of Section 3:

1. Credits Against Fees: Credits Against Fees: In the event Unscheduled Downtime occurs, Customer will be entitled to credits against its subsequent payment obligations (as set forth in the Agreement) (“Service Credits”) according to the following table:

System Availability Credit as a Percentage of One Month of Service
99.95% – 100.00% 0%
99.00% – 99.94% 10%
95.00% – 98.99% 25%
Less than 95.0% 50%

Notwithstanding the foregoing, System Availability below 94.00% will be deemed a breach by Expel consistent with the terms of Section 11 of the Terms and Conditions.

Licensee’s rights under this Section 5.1 are Licensee’s sole and exclusive remedy with respect to any Unscheduled Downtime or any failure by Expel to meet the Service Standard required by Section 3.1.

2. Maximum Service Credits: The maximum amount of Service that Expel will issue to Licensee for Unscheduled Downtime in a single calendar month will not exceed fifty percent (50%) of the service fees for such month.

3. Requesting Service Credits: As a condition to Expel’s obligation to provide Service Credits to Licensee, Licensee must request such Service Credits by sending an e-mail identifying the date and time of the Unscheduled Downtime for which Licensee is requesting Service Credits, with sufficient evidence (including description of the incident and duration of the incident) to credit@expel.io within thirty (30) days following such Unscheduled Downtime. If Licensee fails to request any Service Credits to which Licensee is entitled in accordance with this Section 6.3, Expel will have no obligation to issue such Service Credits to Licensee.
6. Surge. Expel classifies on-demand services not expressly outlined in the contract as Surge. Surge can be requested by the customer based on the hourly rate outlined in the contract for those services. Examples of these requests may include, but are not limited to:

  • Manual investigations: A manual investigation is a request for Expel to review and provide feedback on an anomaly identified by the customer that was NOT generated by an alert within the Expel Workbench platform;
  • Custom workflows, such as a request from the customer to design a specific automated response based on a specific use case not developed by Expel for use in the Workbench platform for universal use;
  • Red/Blue Team exercise participation; and
  • Expel support for customer onsite/virtual events or meetings not outlined in the services contract.

  1. Definitions. The following capitalized terms will have the definitions set forth below. All other capitalized terms that are not defined herein shall have those meanings accorded to them in Expel’s Terms of Service agreement.
    “Alert” means an alert to be analyzed by Expel that is generated by a Supported Product.
    “Covered System” means a computing device (to the extent supported by Expel) that Licensee specifies as within the scope of the Expel Service on which a Supported Product is installed.
    “Event” means an Alert cursorily reviewed by Expel and deemed to be a potential compromise of one or more of Customer’s Covered Systems that subsequently results in creation of either an Investigation or an Incident.
    “Expel Service” means the SaaS offerings and related services made available by Expel that are designed to help customers manage their security operations, that may include alert analysis, investigations, incident reporting, non-remedial alerts, and access to a customer portal that allows the customer to review such alerts, investigations and incidents, as ordered pursuant to a Sales Order.
    “Incident” means a report of confirmed compromise of one or more of Licensee’s Covered Systems.
    “Investigation” means the process executed by Expel to confirm whether possible compromises are false positives or true compromises.
    “Nodes” means the number of Covered Systems within Licensee’s environment, which is reflected on the Sales Order.
    “Scheduled Downtime” means the total amount of time during any calendar month, measured in minutes, during which Licensee is not able to access the Service due to planned system maintenance performed by Expel. Expel will provide Licensee with reasonable prior notice of such Scheduled Downtime.
    “Supported Product” means an endpoint protection platform or endpoint and detection and response product owned by or leased to Licensee and supported by Expel that generates Alerts to be analyzed by Expel. Expel, in its sole discretion, add, remove and change the Supported Products from time to time.

    “Total Monthly Time” means the total minutes in the relevant calendar month less Scheduled Downtime. For any partial calendar month during which Licensee subscribes to the Service, availability will be calculated based on the entire calendar month, not just the portion for which Licensee subscribed.

  2. Scope of Service. During the Term, Expel will provide Licensee with the Expel Service described in this Section 2, as set forth on the Sales Order and in accordance with the terms of the Agreement. All services Licensee requests that are not described in this Section 2 will be performed at the On-Demand Services rate defined on the Sales Order. All services requested by Licensee that are not described in this Section 2 are subject to Expel’s availability. The Expel Service is available for the number of Nodes purchased. If the number of Nodes exceeds the amount reflected on the Sales Order by more than ten percent (10%), Expel will notify Licensee in writing, and will issue an invoice for the difference in number of Nodes at Expel’s then-current rates pro-rated for the remaining portion of the then-current Term.
    1. Alert Analysis and Investigations. Expel will analyze Alerts on a 24x7x365 basis for signs of malicious activity.

If the Investigation results in sufficient evidence of malicious activity, Expel will create an Incident.
    2. Event Notifications. Customer may opt-in to receiving Event Notifications from Expel, provided that Customer has the required additional technology to receive such notifications (e.g., Slack and email servers are implemented). Expel will use reasonable efforts to provide Event Notifications within ten (10) minutes of Expel identifying the Event. Event notifications will include information known to Expel at the time the Event is identified, but may not include impact and severity details customarily determined through an Investigation or Incident report.
    3. Incident Reporting. Upon confirmation of malicious activity by Expel, Expel will publish an Incident to the online user portal and notify (which may include e-mail notification) Licensee of the new Incident within 10 minutes. At its discretion, Expel may perform an extended investigation, and/or may aggregate and review multiple Alerts from related Covered systems to determine the extent of activity related to the Incident. Expel analysts may append results from the extended investigation or subsequent Alert analysis to the initial Incident report if Expel determines that additional or subsequent Alerts are related, and in such cases, Expel will not be required to publish a separate Incident for each such related Alert.
    4. Non-Remediable Alerts. Expel has no obligation to notify Licensee or generate new Incidents for new Alerts that are directly related to previously published Incidents for which Expel has already provided recommended remediation steps, when Licensee has acknowledged the prior Incident but cannot, or chooses not to, remediate the cause of these Alerts.
      Portal Access. Alerts, Investigations and Incidents will be provided by an online user portal.
