Introduction These terms of use (“Terms”) govern the use of the Collibra Customer Community (the “Site”). By using the Site, you agree to these Terms. Note: capitalized words are defined at the end of this text. 1. Purpose - agreement Collibra provides automated data management processing solutions. An important part of the Collibra value-add consists of Customers’ creation, adaptation or configuration of different aspects of the Collibra Solutions. The purpose of these Terms is to leverage the value of those Customer Contributions by sharing them between Customers who use the Site, thereby increasing the value of the Collibra Solutions to all its Customers. These Terms are a legally binding agreement. Access and use of the Site are subject to registration, and acceptance of these Terms by clicking an “I agree” button. By clicking, the Customer expresses agreement with these Terms. 2. Users Use of the Site is restricted to Users. Only Collibra Customers, who have a valid license to use the Collibra Solutions, can appoint individuals (e.g. staff members or consultants) as Users on their behalf, always within the limitations of the relevant license rights paid by such Customer. Users are assigned individual access and use rights to the Site, typically through allocation of a username and password. These can be linked to a named or concurrent User on behalf of a Customer. Any access to or use of the Site or any Contribution done or made by a User is deemed to be by and on behalf of the Customer who has appointed that individual User. The Customer is liable for, and will indemnify, Collibra and other Users for any action or omission to act of any User appointed by such Customer. By accepting the Terms on registration, a User confirms that such User has the power to represent the Customer in this respect. Only Customer is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of any of its Users’ usernames and passwords. Any use done through a username and password assigned to a Customer will be the responsibility of that Customer. A Customer must inform Collibra immediately in case of any unauthorized use, misuse or abuse of such Customer’s Users’ username or password. Collibra may, at its discretion, and without incurring any liability for doing so, suspend any access or other rights of a User in case of reasonable doubt about such User’s credentials, respect of these Terms, or any other risk (including but not limited to security, privacy, etc). 3. Contributions An essential part of operating the Collibra Solutions or the Site is related to the creation and sharing of Contributions by and between Users. There are, in general, two categories of Contributions. The first category is called “processes”. These consist of ways in which models (e.g. federations, use cases, operating models) are configured, through a combination of variation, creation or adaptation of aspects of a process. The second category is called “content”. These consist of aspects of content elements (e.g. metadata, definitions, taxonomies, reference data, rules, policies etc), where aspects of content are configured, through allocation or creation of contextual meaning to such content elements (e.g. by defining a template in a given configuration). When Users create, apply or modify Contributions, they build on the work of either Collibra or other Users, thereby increasing value for the whole of the community of Users. It is therefore an essential condition of these Terms that Contributions of one User can be re-used by other Users, without limitation, within the Collibra ecosystem. To that effect, each Customer grants automatically, for any Contribution made, created, modified or adapted by its Users, a Right to Use to Collibra and all other Customers and Users. This Right to Use to a Contribution contains at least the following rights: - the Right to Use is a perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, fully paid-up, worldwide and unlimited license, for at least the duration of any Intellectual Property Right in the Contribution, to use without limitation in relation with, as part or, or interacting with the Collibra Solutions or the Site. - the Right to Use applies to the Contribution or any part thereof, including any derivative work, and regardless of whether it is covered by Intellectual Property Rights or not. By registering a User or submitting a Contribution, a Customer waives irrevocably any right (including under any Intellectual Property Right) to block or restrict Collibra or any other Customer from using any aspect of any Contribution in accordance with the Right to Use. This waiver survives any termination of the quality of a Customer. By receiving a registration (username and password) and access to the Site, and by agreeing to these Terms, a User acquires the Right to Use to any Contributions made available at or through the Site. NOTICE/ALLOCATION – is a) a good idea b) technically feasible to always allocate a Contribution to a User/Customer? 4. Rules of engagement Users must use reasonable care when using the Site, both towards Collibra as towards other Users. Users may only use the functionalities made available on or through the Site. Users will not knowingly introduce any virus, malware, Trojan, or other code with detrimental effect into the Site, the Collibra Solutions or any Contributions. Users will apply industry standard and up-to-date anti-virus applications, and inform Collibra as soon as reasonably possible of any issue in relation to viruses in respect of the Site, the Collibra Solutions or any Contributions. Users will not circumvent or violate the technical and data Security of the Site. Users will not go beyond the limitations of use applicable to their account. Users will not attempt to probe, scan or test the vulnerability of the Site. 5. Privacy & Data Protection Privacy and data protection are very important to Collibra. Collibra will use the Personal Data of Users, collected as part of the registration process, in accordance with the Collibra Privacy Policy. All Users and Customers must comply with the rules on data protection as set out in the Collibra Privacy Policy and all applicable Data Protection Laws. It is anticipated that normal use of the Site does not require the creation or use of Personal Data, and where possible, such use is discouraged. 6. Confidentiality Access to the Site is restricted to Users. Therefore, information that is shared on the Site or between Users, is to be used without restrictions on the Site. Information that cannot be shared with other Users should not be used or made available on the Site or in Contributions. All Users will use appropriate measures to ensure towards third parties the confidentiality of information they receive from other Users through the Site or as part of Contributions. This does not apply to information that is a) in the public domain, or b) received from another third party without duty of confidentiality. 7. Security Collibra will take appropriate measures, in line with existing technology standards, to ensure the security of the Site. Users will respect all security instructions as indicated from time to time by Collibra. Users are responsible for their use of the Site, and will not do anything or omit to do anything that would jeopardize or put at risk the security of the Site. 8. Intellectual Property Rights. 8.1. Ownership – no assignment. All Intellectual Property Rights in the Site and the Collibra Solutions, including the templates of processes and content used to create Contributions, are and remain with Collibra. Nothing in these Terms transfers or assigns any Intellectual Property Rights from any Customer or User to Collibra, another Customer or User. No Customer will use any Intellectual Property Right in such a way as to block or restrict in any way the Right of Use of Contributions as set out in these Terms, or the functioning of the Site. 8.2. Right to Use and Intellectual Property Rights The Right to Use Contributions does not limit a Customer from acquiring Intellectual Property Rights – but it does limit the way a Customer may want to enforce any such Intellectual Property Rights. Customers acknowledge that through participating in the Site, they irrevocably waive their right to enforce any Intellectual Property Right against the Site or Contributions. 8.3. Procedure in case of infringement In case a Customer is of the opinion that a use of a Contribution by a User (who is not a User representing such Customer) constitutes an actual infringement of its Intellectual Property Rights (and is not covered by the Right to Use), then such Customer will notify Collibra thereof, by indicating in detail: The full identification of the relevant Contribution; The detailed description of the Intellectual Property Right in question, including a fully detailed explanation of why and how the Contribution is alleged to have infringed such Intellectual Property Right; The full contact details of the Customer; A confirmation that the information provided is accurate and complete, and under penalty of perjury, that the Customer owns or is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the Intellectual Property Right that is allegedly infringed. Collibra will take the appropriate steps to investigate such claim. These may include requests for additional information on both the Contribution and the alleged infringement. Collibra is entitled to disclose the relevant information of the alleged infringement to the alleged infringer, and allow the alleged infringer to take up the matter directly with the Customer alleging infringement. It is then up to those parties to provide a solution to the dispute, and inform Collibra of the outcome. Collibra may decide, in its absolute discretion, to suspend making available the relevant Contribution until the matter has been cleared. However, Collibra will never be liable for any continued use of the Contribution by other Users or Customers resulting 9. Third party rights Customers are responsible to ensure that any Contributions made will not infringe third party rights (including but not limited to Intellectual Property Rights). In case of a claim by a third party that a Contribution infringes its Intellectual Property Rights, Collibra is entitled to inform the community of Users and suspend any use of such Contribution until the matter has been cleared. The Customer(s) whose User(s) have/has provided the relevant Contribution will indemnify and keep indemnified Collibra against any consequence of such third party claim. 10. Software When Contributions include software code, the following rules apply: - The Customer will ensure it has all the necessary rights to make such code available under the Right to Use for the relevant Contribution; - No Open Source Software will be included without ensuring full compliance with the relevant OSS license, a clear indication that the Contribution contains Open Source Software, including the relevant license; in case the license is Viral, then the Contribution is subject to prior Collibra approval before it can be used on the Site or in combination with the Collibra Solutions; - Collibra is allowed to audit any code submitted; to this purpose, Customer will make available all necessary information (including source code if necessary) to enable Collibra to perform such audit; - For any code provided, the Customer will provide, upon simple request, to other Users, all relevant technical information (including source code if necessary) to allow interoperability, further modification, derivative products or any other use contemplated by the Right of Use 11. Termination Access to and use of the Site is restricted to Customers. When a Customer ceases to be a Customer, access to and use of the Site will be terminated upon termination of the Customer agreement. In such case, all User accounts of such Customer will automatically terminate. When a User is no longer representing a Customer, such User rights and access to the Site terminate. It is Customer’s responsibility to inform Collibra thereof. Collibra is entitled to suspend or terminate any User or Customer who is in breach or alleged to be in breach of these Terms or any other duty towards Collibra, including any duties arising out of a separate Customer contract. All aspects of any Right of Use granted will survive termination of the Customer or User capacity. However, upon termination of a User account or capacity as Customer, the User/Customer loses the right to gain access to or use Contributions. 12. General provisions 12.1. Warranty and disclaimer Each Customer warrants that it has all necessary rights to grant the rights set out in these Terms, including but not limited to the Right of Use to Contributions. The use of the Site and Contributions is provided by Collibra on an “as is” basis, without any warranties. Any warranties for fitness for a particular purpose are excluded.

In case of conflict, only the Courts of Brussels will have jurisdiction. 12.3. Validity If any provision of the Terms is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be legally ineffective or unenforceable, such provision shall, to the extent possible, be deemed rewritten to reflect the original intent thereof, and the validity of the remaining provisions shall not be affected. 12.4. Amendments Collibra reserves the right to modify the Terms and the functionality or way of operating of the Site (including adding or modifying features or services) from time to time.
