4. Store and Share
The ServiceNow Store available at https://store.servicenow.com, the ServiceNow Publisher Portal available at https://tpp.servicenow.com, and their related and successor websites (collectively, “Store”), and the ServiceNow Share site available at https://share.servicenow.com and its related and successor websites (“Share”), permit registered users, ServiceNow partners and ServiceNow to review and access Apps developed by the user and partner community. As used herein, “App” shall mean a Contribution, posted by a user, a ServiceNow Technology Partner or ServiceNow, that is an application, integration, configuration, extension, update set or other material developed using, or for use in connection with, the ServiceNow Products or other ServiceNow Core Technology. Apps may be downloaded for use on the recipient’s instance or hosted by ServiceNow, and may include artifacts such as code and documentation.
Several types of Apps may be posted to Store and Share:
“Shared App” means any App provided free of charge on the Share site. Shared Apps may be downloaded or hosted by ServiceNow in connection with the recipient’s ServiceNow Products. You may not offer paid Apps for subscription or sale on the Share site.
“Conditional Shared App” means any Shared App for which a user must agree to additional or different terms and conditions (“App Conditions”) as a condition to download or access the App.

All Shared Apps and Conditional Shared Apps posted to Share, and Store Apps posted to Store, are subject to the terms of Section 5 (Posting Apps).
Purchases of Store Apps
Payments and Subscription Term. On the Store site, you may place a non‑cancellable and non‑refundable (except as expressly set forth herein) order to purchase access to a Store App by clicking the “purchase” button associated with that App on Store. Prices stated on Store, including discounts, are final. Except as expressly set forth in the description of a particular Store App, fees for Store Apps are invoiced at the time you place your order. Each Store App is purchased for a term of twelve (12) months, provided that you have a valid paid subscription to the ServiceNow Product(s) required to use the Store App throughout that period. In the event that your subscription to any ServiceNow Product required to use the Store App expires, you may not use the Store App until such use rights are reinstated. Your payment obligation provided in this section shall survive expiration or termination of your rights to use any ServiceNow Product required to use the Store App. Purchase of a Store App is a continuous and non‑divisible commitment for the full duration of its subscription term regardless of the invoice schedule. You may cancel your subscription upon expiration of any Store App subscription term. ServiceNow will provide advance notice of each renewal date to the contact information provided by you. Unless you cancel your subscription, Store Apps will automatically renew upon the expiration of each subscription term.
Payments by Credit Card. For purchases by credit card, payment and invoice shall be due upon purchase of the Store App. The credit card you provide for billing purposes will be billed on a monthly basis during the subscription term of the Store App and on any subsequent automatic renewal subscription terms.
Late Payments. Late payments shall accrue interest at a rate of one and one‑half percent (1.5%) per month or the legal maximum interest rate, whichever is lower. If you are delinquent in payment of amounts owed hereunder, ServiceNow may give notice to you of such delinquency, following which you shall cure the delinquency within thirty (30) days from the date of ServiceNow’s written notice. If you fail to cure the delinquency or regain compliance in accordance with the paragraph below, ServiceNow may suspend your access to the Store App in addition to other rights and remedies available.
App Rights and Restrictions
The following terms shall apply to your use of Apps from Store and Share, in addition to other limitations and disclaimers provided herein:
Minimum Requirements. You must procure separate permission from us to use the ServiceNow Products, including: (a) any specific ServiceNow Product that may be required to run an App, including, without limitation, any ServiceNow Product required to use custom applications that run on the ServiceNow Platform; and (b) any ServiceNow Product with which the App is intended to be used. If you have no Subscription Agreement with us, then you may not use Apps.
Restrictions on Use of Store and Share Contributions. Notwithstanding any contrary term or condition in any App Conditions, you may not: (a) transfer, sublicense, distribute or otherwise provide a third‑party access an App; (b) use an App to develop a product that is operable apart from the ServiceNow platform; (c) use APIs other than the ServiceNow APIs provided on the ServiceNow website to communicate with the ServiceNow Products, or circumvent such APIs or otherwise use APIs that diminish ServiceNow’s ability to isolate errors when providing customer support; or (d) use an App other than in connection with a ServiceNow Product that you are permitted to use under a separate Subscription Agreement.
Testing. The user posting an App, and not ServiceNow (with the exception of ServiceNow Apps), is the provider and grantor of access rights and has sole responsibility for the content of the corresponding App. All Apps must be thoroughly tested by the user in a testing environment before use in a production environment. You agree not to rely on any statements, claims, comments or other discussion on or through the Website by any person with respect to Apps. Except as otherwise offered in any App Conditions pertaining to an App, you are solely responsible for independently testing and validating any App before deploying it in a production environment. Accordingly, you shall not assert any claim for breach of warranty or contract or misrepresentation against any third‑party user based on the performance of an App.
Disclaimer of Support, Indemnification and Security. Your use of an App, or incorporation of an App (even a ServiceNow App) into any ServiceNow Product constitutes a modification or customization of that ServiceNow Product by you for purposes of any Subscription Agreement or other agreement between you and ServiceNow relating to the ServiceNow Product, and such customization or modification (or malfunction or loss of function caused thereby) shall not be subject to any warranty under a Subscription Agreement. You are not entitled to support, service credits, refunds, service level agreement or other service entitlements under any Subscription Agreement or other agreement of any kind with respect to your use of any App except as expressly granted by us in any App Conditions. Indemnification or security obligations imposed on us in a Subscription Agreement shall not apply to Apps that you implement or use in connection with a ServiceNow Product.
Except as otherwise provided in any App Conditions, the App contributor does not provide support, whether that contributor is us or a third‑party user of the Website. To create an environment in which users are encouraged to contribute materials for discussion and testing by other users, refrain from making demands for support to the originator of the content.
Disclaimer of Contributor Liability. You must review and thoroughly test in a non‑production environment any App prior to its use in any production instance of the ServiceNow Products. You agree that you bear all risks associated with using any App. EXCEPT FOR LIABILITY TO SERVICENOW OR AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED OTHERWISE IN ANY APPLICABLE APP CONDITIONS, IN NO EVENT SHALL ANY CONTRIBUTOR OR SERVICENOW HAVE ANY LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY HEREUNDER TO YOU OR ANY OTHER PERSON FOR ANY LOSSES OR DAMAGES WHATSOEVER ARISING OUT OF AN APP, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, COVER, OR DAMAGES BASED ON LOST PROFITS, DATA, OR USE, HOWEVER CAUSED AND WHETHER IN CONTRACT, IN TORT OR UNDER ANY OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER OR NOT YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SERVICENOW OR THE THIRD‑PARTY ORIGINATOR OF THE APP REVIEWED, MODERATED, COMMENTED ON OR PROMOTED SUCH APP.
No Warranty to User. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED OTHERWISE IN ANY APPLICABLE APP CONDITIONS, APPS ARE PROVIDED TO YOU “AS‑IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE,” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. WITHOUT LIMITING THE GENERALITY OF THE FOREGOING, EACH USER OF THE WEBSITE MAKES NO REPRESENTATION, WARRANTY OR GUARANTY, EXPRESS, STATUTORY OR IMPLIED TO YOU OR ANY OTHER PERSONS TO THE RELIABILITY, USEFULNESS, COMPLETENESS, TIMELINESS, QUALITY, SUITABILITY, AVAILABILITY OR ACCURACY OF THE APP. NO USER WARRANTS THAT ALL OR ANY PORTION OF THE APP IS ERROR FREE OR WILL OPERATE WITHOUT INTERRUPTION. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, AND TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, EACH USER SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ALL STATUTORY OR OTHER W ARRANTIES INCLUDING IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, TITLE OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARISING FROM USAGE OF TRADE, COURSE OF DEALING OR COURSE OF PERFORMANCE.
5. Posting Apps
The terms of this Section 5 apply to any App that you post to the Website, including Store and Share, or otherwise make available to a third party.
Grant of rights to Shared Apps. By posting a Shared App in the form of an update set, you hereby grant to each user of Share a non‑exclusive, non‑transferable, perpetual license (to the extent of your rights in the Shared App) to copy, use, and make derivative works of the Shared App solely to evaluate, customize, configure or use the App in conjunction with ServiceNow Products that such user is otherwise permitted to use under a separate Subscription Agreement.
Third‑Party Materials. You represent and warrant that you own or otherwise rightfully possess all intellectual property and other rights necessary to allow you to grant access to or license (as applicable) to any App that you post to the Store.
Service Interference. If your App interferes with our ability to provide our commercially available products and services to our customers in accordance with the support and service availability terms in the Subscription Service Guide posted at www.servicenow.com/schedules.do without a promptly accessible cure deemed acceptable by us, we may immediately discontinue your ability to make the App available to ServiceNow Customers in our sole discretion.
Compatibility. Any App that you create must be compatible with applicable ServiceNow Products and must not: (a) permit a user to pose as another user or multiple users to act as a single user; (b) include, send, store, or run software viruses, worms, Trojan horses, or other harmful computer code, files, scripts, agents, or programs; (c) access, copy, destroy or transmit data regarding any user or device in excess of what is described in the accompanying documentation; (d) create a denial of service; (e) violate any law or regulation of the United States, any state thereof, or other government authority; or (f) disable, exploit, hack, or otherwise interfere with any security, encryption, digital signing, digital rights management, verification, or authentication mechanisms implemented in or by the ServiceNow Products.

Warranty to ServiceNow. You represent, warrant and agree that: (a) your App will not violate or infringe upon the intellectual property rights or other rights of any person or entity, contain any illegal or defamatory material, or violate any laws; (b) with respect to any content contained in or provided through your App and the use of your ServiceNow Products, you have and will continue to be solely responsible for (i) securing, reporting, and maintaining all necessary rights, clearances, and consents related thereto; and (ii) paying all licensing fees, royalties, or respective shares, if any, of any monies payable hereunder to any co‑owners, co‑administrators, or licensors thereof; (c) your App conforms with the requirements of this Section 4; (d) you have complied with all of your obligations with respect to any third‑party software in your App, including, but not limited to, any notice and source code availability obligations that may be required by any applicable free or open source software (“FOSS”) used by you; (e) the licensing terms for any FOSS included with your App will not purport to require ServiceNow or any ServiceNow customer to disclose or make available any of the keys, authorization codes, methods, procedures, data, or other information related to the digital signing or digital rights management mechanisms utilized as part of the ServiceNow Products, Development Tools, Store, Share or any third‑party products distributed through the ServiceNow Products; and (f) you shall not make any promise, warranty or representation on behalf of ServiceNow with respect to Apps that you post.
Data Collection. You and your Apps may not collect user or device data without prior user consent, and then only to provide a service or function that is directly relevant to the use of your App. You may not use analytics software in your App to collect and send device data to you or a third party. You must provide clear and complete information to your customer regarding your collection, use and disclosure of user or device data in advance of and during, that customer’s use. Furthermore, you must take appropriate steps to protect such data from unauthorized use, disclosure, or access by third parties. If a user ceases to consent or affirmatively revokes consent for your collection, use, or disclosure of his or her user or device data, you must promptly cease all such use. You may not disclose ServiceNow customer data to any third party or use such data for any purpose other than to provide to provide the customer with the functionality of your App. You shall maintain and use all ServiceNow customer data in accordance with privacy and security reasonably adequate to preserve its confidentiality and security and all applicable data privacy and data security laws and regulations.
Security Review. We, or a third party selected by us, may conduct a security review of any App, including without limitation, information requests to the contributor, interviews, security testing, network testing, and vulnerability threat assessment. You agree to reasonably cooperate with such testing, and further you agree that ServiceNow, its agents or contractors conducting the testing shall bear no responsibility for any adverse effects on the operation of your App or business. Any nonpublic information obtained by us during any security test shall be treated as your confidential information.
Regulatory Compliance. You represent, warrant and agree that you will comply with any applicable regulatory requirements, including full compliance with all applicable laws, regulations, and policies related to the development, marketing, sale, and distribution of your App, and the laws, regulations and policies of any other applicable regulatory bodies in any countries or territories where you use, sell, distribute or otherwise make your App available. However, you agree that you will not seek any regulatory marketing permission or make any determinations that may result in the ServiceNow Product being deemed regulated or that may impose any obligations or limitations on us. Upon our request, you agree to promptly provide any such clearance documentation to support the marketing of your App.
Indemnity. In addition to your indemnification obligation to ServiceNow provided below, you agree to indemnify and hold each other user and its officers, agents, employees, subsidiaries and affiliates harmless from any claims, demands, liabilities, losses, damages, costs and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising from any claim made by any third party arising out of the Apps posted by you, including but not limited to claims that such App or its use violates any rights of a third party.

9. Legal Considerations
You agree that the configuration and information contained in a Non‑Production Instance, Apps and any information provided to you in connection with a ServiceNow event will be considered and referred to as “ServiceNow Confidential Information”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, ServiceNow Confidential Information shall not include: (a) information that is generally and legitimately available to the public through no fault or breach of yours; (b) information that is generally made available to the public by us; (c) information that is independently developed by you without the use of any ServiceNow Confidential Information; (d) information that was rightfully obtained from a third party who had the right to transfer or disclose it to you without limitation; or (e) any third‑party software and/or documentation provided to you by us and accompanied by licensing terms that do not impose confidentiality obligations on the use or disclosure of such software and/or documentation.
Unless otherwise expressly agreed or permitted in writing by ServiceNow, you agree not to disclose, publish, or disseminate any ServiceNow Confidential Information to anyone. You agree not to use ServiceNow Confidential Information in any way, including, without limitation, for your own or any third party’s benefit without the prior written approval of an authorized representative of ServiceNow in each instance. You further agree to take reasonable precautions to prevent any unauthorized use, disclosure, publication, or dissemination of ServiceNow Confidential Information. You acknowledge that unauthorized disclosure or use of ServiceNow Confidential Information could cause irreparable harm and significant injury to ServiceNow that may be difficult to ascertain. Accordingly, you agree that we will have the right to seek immediate injunctive relief to enforce your obligations under this Agreement in addition to any other rights and remedies we may have. If you are required by law, regulation or pursuant to the valid binding order of a court of competent jurisdiction to disclose ServiceNow Confidential Information, you may make such disclosure, but only if you have notified us before making such disclosure and have used commercially reasonable efforts to limit the disclosure and to seek confidential, protective treatment of such information. A disclosure pursuant to the previous sentence will not relieve you of your obligations to hold such information as ServiceNow Confidential Information.
Certain parts of the Website may grant you access to certain proprietary content (including, without limitation, training modules, video presentations and audio recordings) that we may make available to you from time to time for a separate fee (“Paid Content”). Paid Content shall be considered ServiceNow Confidential Information, unless otherwise agreed or permitted in writing by ServiceNow. You may not share the Paid Content with anyone, including, without limitation, employees and contractors working for the same entity as you. Subject to these terms and conditions, we grant you a non‑exclusive, non‑transferable, personal license to access and use the Paid Content upon your purchase, provided that you may only download one (1) copy of the Paid Content and such download must be completed within the time period specified by us for such download. Except as expressly permitted by us, you shall not modify, translate, reproduce, distribute, or create derivative works of the Paid Content or any part thereof. You shall not sell, sublicense, rent, lease, loan, assign or otherwise transfer any rights in the Paid Content. We and/or our licensor(s) retain ownership of the Paid Content itself and any copies or portions thereof. The Paid Content is licensed, not sold, to you by us for use only under this Agreement, and we reserve all rights not expressly granted to you. Your rights under this license to use and access the Paid Content will terminate automatically without notice from ServiceNow if you fail to comply with any of these provisions.
We will respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with applicable law.
