Unless otherwise stated in the Purchasing Agreement, invoiced charges are due net 30 days from the invoice date. You are responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information to Synopsys and notifying Synopsys of any changes to such information.

If any amount owing by You under this or any other agreement for Synopsys’s Subscription Services is 30 or more days overdue (or 10 or more days overdue in the case of amounts You have authorized Synopsys to charge to Your credit card), Synopsys may, without limiting Synopsys’ other rights and remedies, accelerate Synopsys’ unpaid fee obligations under such agreements, if any, so that all such obligations become immediately due and payable, and suspend the Subscription Services to You until such amounts are paid in full. Synopsys will give You at least 10 days’ prior notice that Your account is overdue before suspending Subscription Services to You.

3.5.  Payment Disputes. Synopsys will not exercise its rights under Sections 3.3 (Overdue Charges) or 3.4 (Suspension of Service and Acceleration) above if You are disputing the applicable charges reasonably and in good faith and are cooperating diligently to resolve the dispute.

8.2.  Effect of Termination or Expiration.  Upon termination or expiration of this Agreement or the Subscription Term, all rights to use the Subscription Service, Licensed Product, Confidential Information and Results that are granted thereunder shall terminate.  Upon termination of this Agreement or expiration of the Subscription Term, You will promptly return to Synopsys or destroy the applicable Confidential Information and all copies and portions thereof, in all forms and types of media, including any Results.

8.3. Survival.  Sections 1, 2.4, 3, 4, 5.4, 5.6, 6, 8.2, 8.3 and 10, will survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement.

a. Maintenance and Support.  Synopsys will provide Maintenance and Support and respond to Subscription Service Issues as further described below. You agree that Synopsys’s Support obligations concerning the Subscription Service’s use with third party products, including compilers, operating systems and other Licensed Product or services, shall be limited to those items set forth in the Documentation.   Service Issues are assigned a classification at the time of Your initial contact with Synopsys and are classified according to the severity levels set forth below.  Synopsys will initially respond in accordance with the response times applicable to Service Issues reported by telephone or e-mail during Synopsys’ regular service hours for the applicable region as set forth below.  Failure to contact You within the response time period because You are unavailable (e.g., phone busy, no answer, in a meeting, or out of the office) does not constitute Synopsys’ noncompliance with the response commitment.  You shall cooperate with Synopsys to provide reproducible results for any errors reported.  Synopsys’ ability to provide Support will depend, in some cases, on Your ability to provide accurate and detailed information and to aid Synopsys in handling a Service Issue. You shall provide Synopsys with reasonable access to Your systems, premises and staff as needed to provide Support.

 

Service Issue Classification Response Time Next Steps
Severity P1—Critical Business Impact:  Subscription Service is not functioning or is stopped or severely impacted so that You cannot reasonably continue use of Subscription Service and no workaround is available.

Severity P3—Minor Business Impact: Subscription Service is functioning inconsistently causing slightly impaired Your usage and productivity but You can work around such inconsistency or impairment.

Severity P4—No Business Impact: Subscription Service is functioning consistently but You request minor changes in Subscription Service such as Documentation updates, cosmetic defects or enhancements.

b. On-Site Support.  You may elect to purchase specific on-site support packages, details of which can be found on Synopsys’ website: http://www.coverity.com/html/services_pro.html.  The purpose of on-site support is to help customers optimize deployment of the Subscription Service, including installation, setup, configuration, and additional support offerings.

c. Exclusions to Subscription Maintenance Services.  Subscription Maintenance Services do not include the right to access new or bundled product or Subscription Service offerings made available by Synopsys, unless licenses for such offerings are separately purchased.  Synopsys will not have any obligation to provide Subscription Maintenance Services for problems in the operation or performance of the Subscription Service to the extent caused by any of the following:  (a) modifications to the Subscription Service made by a party other than Synopsys; (b) Your use of the Subscription Service other than as authorized by the applicable agreement licensing access to the Subscription Service or Results therefrom to You or as provided in the Documentation; or (c) Your use of scripts or other deliverables provided to You under On-Site Support services (as described in Section 9, subsection b above).  If, in its sole discretion, Synopsys determines that a problem in the operation or performance of the Subscription Service is caused by the foregoing, then Synopsys will notify You and have no further Subscription Maintenance Service obligations related to such problem. If You request and Synopsys agrees to perform services beyond standard Subscription Maintenance Services, Synopsys will have the right to invoice You at Synopsys’ then-current published time and materials rates for the provision of such services.
