1. APPOINTMENT AND AUTHORITY OF PARTNER

1.1 Appointment; Rights Granted. As of the date of signature by the parties or other acceptance (if click-through) (the “Effective Date”) and subject to this Agreement which may be updated from time to time and posted at https://arcticwolf.com/terms/MPA/ as evidenced by an updated “Last Updated Date”, Arctic Wolf authorizes and appoints Partner the reseller rights set forth below and in the Order Form, Terms, and applicable partner program guide (the “Program Guide”) which may be provided and updated by Arctic Wolf from time to time or otherwise made available to Partner. Partner may not appoint other partners, resellers, or distributors, nor offer or sell any rights to use Arctic Wolf Solutions other than as explicitly authorized in this Agreement. The Program Guide contains general information about Arctic Wolf’s Partner Program and describes the Program requirements and benefits. The Program Guide is incorporated into this Agreement by this reference.

1.2 Scope. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and compliance therewith, Arctic Wolf grants Partner the non-exclusive, non-transferable license to purchase the specific products and services from Arctic Wolf as specified in an Order Form and referencing and incorporating this Partner Agreement (“Solutions”) and to distribute such Solutions to Partner’s customers (“Customer(s)”). A Solution may consist of hardware equipment (“Equipment”), a cloud service offering (“Service”) and/or software (“Software”) as specified on the Order Form, including any third-party products incorporated therein. Each Solution is provided on a subscription basis for a set term designated on the Order Form (each, a “Subscription Term”). Arctic Wolf at its sole discretion, reserves the right, upon at least thirty (30) days prior written notice to Partner, to modify pricing and discounts associated with the Solutions or to discontinue the manufacture, sale or provision of any Solutions at any time; however, should Arctic Wolf discontinue the manufacture, sale, or provision of any Solution, Arctic Wolf will continue to service any existing subscription for the applicable Solution through the Subscription Term (as defined on the applicable Order Form) or as otherwise agreed with Customer. Except for one-time onboarding related to certain Solutions as contemplated in Section 3 of the SA (as defined in Section 1.4 below), all other Solutions are made available by license, not sold, notwithstanding the use of the terms “sell” or “resell” in this Agreement. “Documentation” means user manuals, training materials, product descriptions and specifications and other printed information, as may be updated from time-to-time, relating to the Arctic Wolf Solution, as in effect and generally available from Arctic Wolf, expressly excluding marketing and sales collateral and materials. Some Software, including all third-party software and any open source software made available with or as part of the Solutions, are governed by separate license terms which will be provided by Arctic Wolf upon request.

1.3 Partner Services. Partner may provide certain support and professional services related to the Solutions (“Partner Services”) as more fully-described in the applicable Addendum, provided Partner is in continued compliance with the Order Form, applicable Terms and Program Guide. If Partner ceases to be in compliance with the Order Form, applicable Terms, and Program Guide, Arctic Wolf may notify Partner that it is prohibited from providing Partner Services and, upon receipt of such notice, Partner will immediately cease providing Partner Services until such breach is cured in accordance with Section 5.1 herein or the Agreement is terminated.

1.4 End User License Agreement. Partner acknowledges and agrees that Customer’s Subscription to the Solutions is subject to (i) for sales pursuant to the Reseller Addendum, Customer’s agreement to Arctic Wolf’s Solution Agreement found at https://arcticwolf.com/terms/SA/, as may be updated from time-to-time (the “SA”), and referenced on Partner’s purchasing document with Customer or (ii) for sales pursuant to the Managed Service Provider Addendum, Customer’s agreement to Arctic Wolf’s SA. As a MSP, Partner will execute an agreement with the end user that, at a minimum, includes contractual provisions that are materially no less protective of Arctic Wolf’s rights than those contained in Arctic Wolf’s then-current SA with such comparative terms to include, but not be limited to, the license, license restrictions, intellectual property rights, title, termination, confidentiality, export, warranty, indemnification, data privacy, limitation of liability, and audit provisions. Depending on the partner relationship, Partner understands that Arctic Wolf may require that Customers acknowledge and agree to Arctic Wolf’s SA (in a reseller transaction) and/or any such other terms and conditions as part of the registration or installation process. Partner will be deemed a Customer for any internal purchase of the Solutions by Partner or use of the Solutions by Partner under the MSP Addendum and the SA will apply to any such use and access by Partner.

2.1 Orders. Partner will initiate purchases for the Solutions with Arctic Wolf in accordance with the applicable Terms and/or Program Guide.

During the Term (as defined in Section 5.1 herein) and for a minimum of two (2) years thereafter, Partner will maintain complete and accurate books, records and accounts relating to the distribution or resale of the Solutions. Partner will permit Arctic Wolf, or an independent third-party auditor selected by Arctic Wolf, to inspect Partner’s premises, books, records, products and/or accounts upon Arctic Wolf’s reasonable request and in a manner that will not unreasonably interfere with normal business operations to confirm Partner’s compliance with this Agreement. The results of an audit are Confidential Information of Partner.

Partner will pay to Arctic Wolf any sales or use tax, whether federal, state or local, imposed on or arising out of the delivery of the Solutions to Partner by Arctic Wolf including sales tax, use tax, VAT, GST, HST or similar taxes (“Indirect Taxes”). If Partner is required to pay any Indirect Taxes, Partner shall pay such Indirect Taxes with no reduction or offset in the amounts payable to Arctic Wolf hereunder and Partner will pay and bear such additional amount as shall be necessary such that Arctic Wolf receives the full amount of the payment required as if no such reduction or offset were required. Partner acknowledges and agrees that unless Partner provides a valid sales or use tax exemption prior to or simultaneously with its purchase of the Solutions from Arctic Wolf, Arctic Wolf will apply applicable Indirect Tax on invoice and remit such tax to the appropriate taxing authority. Arctic Wolf will have no obligation to Partner to retroactively adjust the invoice or refund any sales or use tax collected related to any Order Forms issued by Arctic Wolf to Partner prior to the submission of any valid sales or use tax exemption. Partner is solely responsible for paying any and all taxes due and owing as a result of Partner’s provision of the Solutions to its Customers and for any taxes (including social security, employment and income) required by any federal, state, or local law or regulation pertaining to Partner’s personnel.

2.4.2. Withholding Taxes. In the event that Partner is prohibited by law from making payments hereunder unless Partner deducts or withholds taxes therefrom and remits such taxes to the local taxing jurisdiction, then Partner shall pay and remit such taxes with no reduction or offset in the amounts payable to Arctic Wolf hereunder and Partner will pay and bear such additional amount as shall be necessary such that Arctic Wolf receives the full amount of the payment required as if no such reduction or offset were required. Partner shall promptly furnish Arctic Wolf with a copy of an official tax receipt or other appropriate evidence of any taxes imposed on payments made hereunder, including taxes on any additional amounts paid.

7.1 Confidential Information. Each party hereby agrees that it will not use or disclose any Confidential Information received from the other party other than as expressly permitted under the terms of this Agreement or as expressly authorized in writing by the other party. Each party will use the same degree of care to protect the other party’s Confidential Information as it uses to protect its own Confidential Information of like nature, but in no circumstances less than reasonable care. Neither party will disclose the other party’s Confidential Information to any person or entity other than its officers, directors, employees, advisors, agents and subcontractors who have a need to know and are bound by confidentiality terms no less restrictive than those in this Agreement. For purposes of this Agreement, “Confidential Information” means any and all information disclosed by either party (the “Disclosing Party”) to the other (the “Receiving Party”), which is marked “confidential” or “proprietary” or which should reasonably be understood by the Receiving Party to be confidential or proprietary, including, but not limited to, the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Program Guide, information contained within Arctic Wolf’s Partner Portal, the Solutions and details related to the delivery thereof, and any information that relates to business plans, services, marketing or finances, research, product plans, products, developments, inventions, processes, designs, drawings, engineering, formulae, markets, software (including source and object code), hardware configuration, computer programs, and algorithms of the Disclosing Party and all derivatives thereof.

7.3 Injunctive Relief. The parties agree that a breach of the confidentiality or license provisions of this Agreement will cause irreparable damage which money cannot satisfactorily remedy. In addition to any other remedies available at law or hereunder, the parties agree Arctic Wolf is entitled to seek injunctive relief for any threatened or actual breach of this Agreement by Partner in addition to all other legal remedies without the need to post bond.

8. INDEMNIFICATION

8.1 By Arctic Wolf. Arctic Wolf agrees to defend or settle, at Arctic Wolf’s option, a third-party claim or cause of action against the Partner alleging that the Solutions infringe or misappropriate a U.S. patent or copyright of such third party (collectively, a “Claim”) and to pay damages finally awarded against the Partner and paid to an unaffiliated third party or to pay settlement amounts directly, and solely resulting from such Claim, provided that Partner (a) promptly gives written notice of the Claim to Arctic Wolf; (b) gives Arctic Wolf sole control of the defense and settlement of the Claim (provided that Arctic Wolf may not settle any claim or cause of action unless it unconditionally releases Partner of all liability other than the payment of amounts to be covered by Arctic Wolf hereunder); and (c) provides to Arctic Wolf all reasonable assistance at Arctic Wolf’s request and expense. In the event of an actual or threatened Claim described in this Section 8.1, Arctic Wolf may, at its sole option: (i) procure for Partner the right to continue selling the Solutions under the terms of this Agreement; (ii) replace or modify the Solutions to be non-infringing without material decrease in functionality; or (iii) if the foregoing options are not reasonably practicable, terminate Partner’s rights to resell the Solutions, and terminate all then-existing licenses to the Solutions resold by Partner and refund any pre-paid unused fees as of the date of termination. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Arctic Wolf will have no obligation under this section or otherwise with respect to any Claim described in this Section 8.1based upon (A) any unauthorized use of the Solutions or any breach of this Agreement by Partner, (B) any combination of the Solutions with other non-Arctic Wolf Solutions, equipment, software, uses or data, to the extent such Claim would not have arisen absent such combination and to the extent such combination is not reasonably anticipated, (C) any modification of the Solutions by any person other than Arctic Wolf, (D) any activity after Arctic Wolf has provided Partner with a work around or modification that would have avoided such issue without adversely affecting the functionality of the Solutions or (E) continued use of the Solutions after notification from Arctic Wolf. The provisions of this section set forth Arctic Wolf’s sole and exclusive obligations, and Partner’s sole and exclusive remedies, with respect to any claims of infringement or misappropriation of third-party intellectual property rights of any kind.

8.2 By Partner. Partner will defend, indemnify and hold Arctic Wolf harmless against any loss, damage or costs (including reasonable attorneys' fees) incurred in connection with any claims or causes of action against Arctic Wolf arising out of (a) any representations or warranties or any misrepresentation provided by Partner or its representatives relating to or concerning the Solutions; (b) a breach of any obligation of Partner set forth this Agreement; (c) any marketing, use or other exploitation of the Solutions, or (d) Partner’s breach of any agreement or obligation with a Customer pertaining to the Solutions. Arctic Wolf will (i) promptly give written notice of the Claim to Partner; (ii) give Partner sole control of the defense and settlement of the Claim (provided that Partner may not settle any claim or cause of action unless it unconditionally releases Arctic Wolf of all liability other than the payment of amounts to be covered by Partner hereunder); and (iii) provides to Partner all reasonable assistance, at Partner’s request and expense.

By continuing as a Partner after Arctic Wolf has posted such updated terms, Partner is indicating that it agrees to be bound by such terms.

Headings in this Agreement are for reference purposes only and will not affect the interpretation or meaning of this Agreement.
