SI Alliance Terms and Conditions


These SI Alliance Terms and Conditions, including the referenced Data Processing Agreement, are an integrated part of the SI Alliance Order Form entered into between Cognite and Partner (collectively referred to as the “Agreement”). Capitalized terms used herein shall have the meaning as set out in the SI Alliance Order Form and in Section 17 below. 

1. Background

The purpose of the Agreement is to establish a framework for introducing the Parties’ products and services together to the market in the Territory and to pursue joint customers for the sale of Cognite’s products CDF and Cognite Applications, and Partner’s services as Cognite’s system integration partner in the Territory.
The Agreement shall not apply to the sale or delivery by either Party of services or products to customers, or any co-development of intellectual property by the Parties, which must be documented in separate agreements. Unless otherwise is agreed, Partner shall contract directly with customers on the provision of any services by Partner, and Cognite shall contract directly with customers on the sale of subscriptions to CDF and Cognite Applications.

This Agreement is non-exclusive, and each Party shall at all times remain free to decline to pursue a specific opportunity in its discretion and may, subject to the terms of this Agreement, work with another product or services provider.

2. Partner Contributions and Benefits

The Partner hereby agrees:
  1. To meet the On-the-Job Training Requirement and maintain the Technical Capacity and Sales Capabilities as set forth in the SI Alliance Order Form during the Term, and to provide any additionally agreed Partner Contributions as set out in the SI Alliance Order Form; and
  2. To use Commercially Reasonable Efforts to market Cognite and Cognite Technology to potential customers in the Territory during the Term for the purpose of generating customer leads.
Cognite shall use Commercially Reasonable Efforts to provide the Partner Benefits as further set forth in the SI Alliance Order Form.

The Parties shall cooperate in good faith and collaborate to pursue the purpose of this Agreement during the Term. 

3. Marks and sales material

Each Party ( the “Licensor”) grants to the other Party (the “Licensee”) a non-exclusive, non-transferable, royalty-free, limited, and revocable license during the Term to use the Licensor’s Marks solely (a) in connection with the promotion of the Parties’ relationship and marketing of Cognite Technology and Partner’s system integration services, and (b) in accordance with any written guidelines provided by the Licensor, including any request from the Licensor to review the use of its Marks.
The Licensee’s use of the Licensor’s Marks is for the sole benefit of the Licensor, and any goodwill arising from the Licensee's use of the Marks will inure to the benefit of the Licensor.

The Licensee shall not alter the Marks in any way or remove Marks from any materials provided by the Licensor.

The Licensee acknowledges that the Licensor owns its Marks. The Licensor may revoke the above grants at any time, at which time the Licensee shall immediately cease the use of the Marks.

Notwithstanding the above, all marketing and sales materials related to Cognite Technology not provided by Cognite or consisting of content substantially equivalent to such approved material shall be submitted to Cognite in English for Cognite's review and approval. Such approval by Cognite shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.

4. Cognite professional services

If Cognite shall provide professional services to Partner, including by providing Cognite resources to participate in Partner’s provision of services to customers, the Parties shall execute a Service Order Form to be subject to the Professional Services Agreement available here: https://www.cognite.com/en/legal/generalterms
For the avoidance of doubt, any such provision of professional services, including resources, by Cognite, shall be exclusively governed by such separate agreement and shall not be subject to this Agreement.

5. Governance

The Parties agree to establish a steering committee to manage the Parties’ relationship, the development and marketing of any agreed joint offerings, and any issues arising out of this Agreement. For this purpose, each Party will appoint an Executive Sponsor, a Relationship Manager, and any other roles the Parties deem appropriate, which will comprise the “Steering Committee”. 

The Executive Sponsor will provide strategic guidance and executive direction as needed to achieve the purposes of the Agreement. The Relationship Manager will be accountable for the daily operations and management of the Parties’ relationship and will be the contact person for inquiries pertaining to this Agreement, pipeline and sales management, issue resolution, and any issues arising under this Agreement. 

The Steering Committee will monitor the performance of the relationship, review and approve new joint offerings, resolve issues, and provide overall direction for the relationship. 

The Steering Committee will meet as requested by the Relationship Managers to address escalated questions or issues.

6. Fees, payment, and tax

6.1 Fees

The Partner shall bear full responsibility for any currency exchange costs, fees, or fluctuations related to the conversion of their local currency to the currency stated in the SI Alliance Order Form for the purpose of making payments under this Agreement.

Except as otherwise specifically set forth in the Agreement, each Party shall cover its own costs incurred in connection with, or arising out of, this Agreement, including but not limited to any costs associated with training, pipeline generation, participation in sales and marketing activities, and governance activities, including those of the Steering Committee.

6.3 Payment

Cognite shall invoice Partner in accordance with the billing cycle and payment terms set out in the SI Alliance Order Form.
If the Partner fails to make any payment when due, then, without limiting Cognite’s remedies under the Agreement, Cognite shall from the first day of delayed payment be entitled to i) suspend performance of its obligations under this Agreement for as long as the amount remains outstanding, and ii) charge interest on any overdue amount at 9,5% per annum, or if lower, the highest rate permitted under Applicable Laws, in respect of such unpaid amount. Cognite shall not exercise its right to charge late payment interest insofar and as long as the Partner is disputing the applicable payment obligation reasonably and in good faith and is cooperating diligently to resolve the dispute, but this shall not affect the accrual of late payment interest on the overdue amount while the Parties work to resolve the dispute.

6.4 Tax

Unless otherwise explicitly agreed in this Agreement, all fees and payments shall be exclusive of all taxes imposed by any domestic or foreign taxing authority such as applicable value-added, sales, use, excise, customs duties or other taxes, consumption, access, other tax, fees, or surcharges (including, but not limited to regulatory fees or surcharges) (“Taxes”). In the event that payment of any amount from Partner to Cognite becomes subject to withholding tax, levy, or similar payment obligation on sums due to Cognite under this Agreement such withholding tax amounts shall be borne and paid for by Partner in addition to the fees due to Cognite. Partner shall provide Cognite free of charge with the appropriate certificate(s) from the relevant authorities confirming the amount of the withholding taxes, levies, or similar payments borne and paid for by Partner if requested by Cognite.

6.5 Revising of fees

Cognite shall be entitled to adjust the Partner fees each calendar year. In case of an increase in the fee, such increase shall not exceed the increase in the Consumer Price Index from January of the previous year to January of the present year. The increase shall be applied on a cumulative, year-over-year basis beginning twelve (12) months after the Effective Date.

6.6 External invoicing systems

Should Cognite agree in writing to utilize Partner’s preferred invoicing system, the Partner shall reimburse Cognite for any costs incurred in connection with accessing and using such invoicing system for the purpose of invoicing the Partner in accordance with the Agreement.

The Parties explicitly agree that Section 6.1 above shall apply and have priority regardless of any arrangements between Cognite and the Partner regarding the use of invoicing system. The Agreement shall prevail over any terms and conditions associated with any third-party invoicing systems.

7. IPR

Each Party is and shall remain the sole and exclusive owner of all right, title, and interest in and to its IPR, and neither Party shall acquire any rights in or licenses to the other Party's IPR except as explicitly stated in this Agreement.

Cognite shall be and shall remain the sole and exclusive owner of all right, title, and interest in and to all Cognite Technology, Improvements, and any IPR relating thereto.

8. Personal data

If Cognite processes personal data on behalf of Partner under this Agreement, the Parties agree that the Data Processing Agreement shall apply for such processing of personal data.

9. Confidentiality

All Confidential Information exchanged or otherwise transferred between the Parties shall be treated as confidential and shall not be disclosed by the receiving Party to any third party without the prior written consent of the disclosing Party or used for any other purpose than for which it was disclosed or as otherwise agreed in this Agreement unless such Confidential Information:
  1. is already known by rightful means to the receiving Party at the time the information was received;
  2. is or becomes part of the public domain other than through the default of the receiving Party;
  3. is received from a third party without an obligation of confidentiality of which the receiving Party was or should have been aware; or
  4. is required to be disclosed by law, governmental, or other public authority regulation or decision, or ordered by a court of law. 
Where the circumstances set out in item (d) above apply, the receiving Party shall disclose only that portion of the Confidential Information which it is legally required to disclose. The receiving Party shall exercise Commercially Reasonable Efforts to obtain reasonable assurances that confidential treatment will be accorded such Confidential Information.

Each Party may, however, use or disclose Confidential Information to a third party, to the extent necessary for the performance of that Party's obligations under this Agreement, provided that such Party shall procure that such third party is bound by confidentiality obligations at least as onerous as those set out in this Section 9.
The receiving Party shall duly handle and protect the Confidential Information from unauthorized disclosure using at least a commercially reasonable degree of care.

This obligation to observe confidentiality shall continue ten (10) years after the termination of this Agreement.

10.1 Indemnities

Each Party (the “Indemnifying Party”) shall indemnify the other Party, its affiliates and their respective directors, officers, employees, and agents (the “Indemnified Party”), and defend and save each of them harmless, from and against any and all losses, damages, liabilities, costs, and expenses, (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses) (“Losses”) in connection with any and all suits, investigations, claims, or demands from any third party that the use of the Indemnifying Party’s IPR as permitted under this Agreement infringes such third party's IPR, provided that the Indemnifying Party is given prompt notice and control of such claim, that the Indemnified Party does not prejudice Indemnifying Party’s defense of such claim, that the Indemnified Party gives the Indemnifying Party all reasonable assistance in connection with such claim at the Indemnifying Party’s expense, and that the claim does not arise as a result of the use of IPR otherwise than in accordance with Indemnifying Party’s directions or written instructions or the terms of this Agreement. The foregoing states the entire liability of the Indemnifying Party under this Agreement for infringement of IPR of any third party.

The foregoing indemnity shall not apply to Losses caused by or arising as a result of the use or combination of the Indemnifying Party’s IPR, or any part thereof, with software, hardware, data, or processes not provided by the Indemnifying Party if the Indemnifying Party’s IPR or use thereof would not cause the Losses without such combination.
