LICENSE TERMS

LAST UPDATED: DECEMBER 15, 2022
Please read these Spotify Plugins for Backstage License Terms (the "License Terms") carefully as they govern your access to, and use of, Spotify's proprietary plugins for Backstage (collectively, the "Software"). By signing or executing an order form that incorporates these License Terms by reference (an "Order Form"), or expressing your consent to these License Terms, or otherwise downloading, accessing or using the Software or a license key to the Software, you agree to these License Terms. If you do not agree to these License Terms, then you must not access or use the Software. These License Terms together with the supplemental hosting terms and all Order Forms incorporating these License Terms collectively form the "Agreement".
The Agreement is between you and (a) if you are an entity organized under or otherwise subject to the laws of the United States of America: Spotify USA, Inc., a Delaware Corporation with offices at 4 World Trade Center, 150 Greenwich Street, 62nd Floor, New York, New York 10007; or (b) if you are an entity organized under or otherwise subject to the laws of any country outside of the United States of America: Spotify AB, a Swedish limited liability company with offices at Regeringsgatan 19, 111 53 Stockholm, Sweden, with registered number 556703-7458 ("Spotify", "we", "us" or "our").
IF YOU ARE AN INDIVIDUAL ACCESSING OR USING THE SOFTWARE ON BEHALF OF, OR FOR THE BENEFIT OF, ANY CORPORATION, PARTNERSHIP, OR OTHER ENTITY WITH WHICH YOU ARE EMPLOYED OR ASSOCIATED , THEN YOU ARE AGREEING TO THIS AGREEMENT ON BEHALF OF YOURSELF AND SUCH ORGANIZATION, AND YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU HAVE THE LEGAL AUTHORITY TO BIND SUCH ORGANIZATION TO THIS AGREEMENT. References to "you", "your" and "Customer" in this Agreement will refer to both the individual using the Software and to any such organization.
THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS A MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISION THAT, AS FURTHER SET FORTH IN SECTION 14 BELOW, REQUIRES THE USE OF ARBITRATION TO RESOLVE DISPUTES, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR ANY OTHER COURT PROCEEDINGS, OR CLASS ACTIONS OF ANY KIND.
  1. License
    1. Subject to your obtaining a valid license key for the Software from Spotify and your compliance with this Agreement, Spotify grants to you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable license to use the Software and any documentation for the Software made available by us to you in connection with this Agreement (the "Documentation"), solely for your internal business purposes and subject to the number of individual user seats that you have purchased from Spotify (collectively, the "License"). The Software and Documentation are licensed, not sold or transferred to you, and Spotify and its licensors retain ownership of all copies of the Software (even after installation by you on any devices) and the Documentation.
    2. The Software may be used with the Backstage open source platform ("Backstage OSS"). For clarity, Backstage OSS is governed by a separate license granted by the Linux Foundation pursuant to a separate agreement, and is not governed by this Agreement. More information on the license for Backstage OSS can be found at https://backstage.io/. In order to properly use the Software, you must ensure that you are using the latest version of the Backstage OSS. We make no commitments or guarantees that the Software will work with your instance of the Backstage OSS. We are neither responsible nor liable for your use of, or inability to use, Backstage OSS.
    3. The Software and Documentation are the property of Spotify or Spotify's licensors. All Spotify trademarks, service marks, trade names, logos, domain names, and any other features of the Spotify brand, whether included in the Software or otherwise ("Spotify Brand Features") are the sole property of Spotify or its licensors. The Agreement does not grant you any rights to use or modify any Spotify Brand Features whether for commercial or non-commercial use.
  2. Trial License
    1. From time to time, we may offer trials of the Software for a specified trial period at no cost or at a reduced rate. If you are using the Software under a trial, then in addition to the licensing terms and restrictions set forth in these License Terms, the License is granted solely for purposes of your internal testing and evaluation of the Software during the trial period (a "Trial License"). NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY IN THESE LICENSE TERMS, THE SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED "AS IS" WITHOUT ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS OF ANY KIND DURING THE TRIAL PERIOD. We reserve the right to refuse or revoke a Trial License at any time and for any reason, without liability to you.
