1. Use of the Moat Services

1.1 Oracle will make the Moat Services available to you pursuant to these Terms. If necessary for the provision of the Moat Services to you, Oracle will provide you any required java script code, pixel tags, or other Oracle technology ("Technology") for the purposes of capturing your Information. Any Technology provided to you will also be deemed part of the "Moat Services." Except as otherwise stated in these Terms, you have the non-exclusive, worldwide, limited right to use the Moat Services for the period of time set forth in Section 6, unless earlier terminated, solely for your internal evaluation of the Moat Services. You may allow your Users to use the Moat Services for this purpose, and you are responsible for their compliance with these Terms.

1.2 You may not, and may not cause or permit others to: (a) perform or disclose any benchmarking, availability or performance testing of the Moat Services; or (b) perform or disclose network discovery, port and service identification, vulnerability scanning, password cracking, remote access or penetration testing of the Moat Services (the "Acceptable Use Policy"). In addition to other rights that Oracle has in these Terms, Oracle may remove or disable access to material that violates the Acceptable Use Policy.

1.3 If Technology is provided to you by Oracle, it is your responsibility to ensure that such Technology is properly implemented in accordance with any instructions provided to you by Oracle. Prior to fully deploying the Technology, you are responsible for testing the Technology in a manner sufficient to ensure that the Technology will not interfere with the proper functioning of your systems or webpages, including proper ad loading. Oracle assumes no responsibility regarding the implementation of the Technology. Oracle may attempt to assist you with Technology implementation issues, but cannot guarantee issues will be resolved. If the Moat Services cannot be provided by Oracle due to incorrect Technology implementation Oracle shall have no liability or obligations hereunder.

2. Fees

There are no fees due by either party under these Terms.

8.4 Oracle is an independent contractor, and no partnership, joint venture, or agency relationship exists between the parties. Oracle’s business partners and other third parties, including any third parties with whom the Moat Services have integrations or that are retained by you, are independent of Oracle and are not Oracle’s agents. Oracle is not liable for, bound by, or responsible for any problems with the Moat Services or your Information arising due to any acts of any such business partner or third party. Nothing in these Terms limits Oracle’s right to do business with any other third parties. These Terms are the entire agreement between you and Oracle related to the Moat Services described herein and supersede any prior or contemporaneous agreements. If Oracle takes no action for your failure to comply with any part of these Terms, it does not mean that Oracle is foregoing or giving up any rights described herein.

You may not assign the Terms or give or transfer the Moat Services, or any interest in the Moat Services, to another individual or entity.
