Last Revised: June 15, 2020
“Testim” means the entity specific in the applicable Order (as such term is defined below), or otherwise Testim Inc. and/or any of Testim Inc.’s affiliates, including without limitation Testim Computerized Verifications Ltd.
“Customer” means, as applicable, you, the entity on whose behalf you are agreeing to the TOS, or the entity identified in the applicable Order (as such term is defined below). You represent and warrant that you have full legal authority to bind Customer to the TOS.
The website and services are available only to individuals who (a) are at least sixteen (16) years old; and (b) possess the legal capacity to enter into these TOS (on behalf of themselves and their organization) and to form a binding agreement under any applicable law. The Customer hereby represents that the Customer possess the legal authority to enter into the TOS.
Customer may access and use the Services and the Website solely subject to and in accordance with the TOS, unless Customer and Testim have executed a separate agreement in writing, signed by both parties which expressly supersedes these TOS. For the avoidance of doubt, any terms added by Customer to an order form or quote do not constitute part of an Order. Customer will comply with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations in connection with Customer’s use of the Services and the Website. Although the Website and the Services may be accessible worldwide, Testim makes no representation that materials contained therein are appropriate or available for use in any particular jurisdiction and accessing them from jurisdictions where their contents are illegal is prohibited.
To the extent that the Order sets forth a right to use the Services by the Customer’s Affiliates, Customer shall: (i) provide each such Affiliate with a copy of these TOS; (ii) ensure that each such Affiliate complies with the terms and conditions therein; and (iii) be responsible for any breach of these TOS by any such Affiliate. For purposes of this Agreement, “Affiliate” means any entity that Controls, is Controlled by, or is under common Control with you, where “Control” means ownership, directly or indirectly, of 50% or more of the voting interest.
The “Services” include Testim’s automated platform for authoring of software quality tests, cross browser execution environment for the authored tests, and any other products or services provided by Testim from time to time through the Website or otherwise, and all updates, upgrades and enhancements thereto (collectively, the “Platform”). To use the Services, Customer must maintain a proper, high-speed internet connection to connect Customer’s network to the Services and may be required to install a plugin or SDK software (the “Plugin”) and a command line interface tool (“CLI”). Use of the Services is restricted to such specific user(s) (each, a “Permitted User”), number of total Executions per month (the “Execution Limitation”) and to the number of cross-browser parallel Executions (“Parallel Executions Limitation”), as set forth in the applicable Order (Customers which use the Services under the “Community Free” plan, have an Execution Limitation of 1,000 and Parallel Executions Limitation of 1, serial execution, on Chrome browser only).
“Execution” means a single test execution using Testim’s Platform or CLI. The calculation of the Execution Limitation entitled to a Permitted User will be made in the aggregate with respect to all Executions licensed to Customer. For instance, if Customer has licensed four Executions, then a single Permitted User may use all four Executions, provided that no Executions are being used by any other Customer Permitted User. If Customer exceeds the Execution Limitation, Customer will be required to upgrade its license to cover the extra Executions and/or will be charged overage fees as specified in the relevant Order.
The “Website” provides comprehensive information regarding Testim and enables Customers to log-in to the Services.
The Website and/or Services also provide resources such as whitepapers, and may include any other content related thereto such as contact information, videos, text, logos, button icons, images, data compilations, links, other specialized content, technical data, documentation, know-how, specifications materials, designs, data, the “look and feel” of the Website and/or Services, algorithms, source and object code, interface, GUI, interactive features related graphics, illustrations, drawings, animations, and other features obtained from or through the Website and/or Services (collectively, the “Content”).
ALL RIGHTS IN AND TO THE CONTENT AVAILABLE ON THE WEBSITE AND/OR SERVICES ARE RESERVED TO TESTIM. TO THE EXTENT LEGALLY PERMISSIBLE, THE WEBSITE AND/OR PLATFORM AND THE CONTENT AVAILABLE THEREIN ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” BASIS.

At all times Customer shall be solely responsible for: (i) the activities of Permitted Users, (ii) the activities of unauthorized users that access the Services by way of Customer’s Account credentials, while engaged by Customer, and/or while using Customer’s premises or equipment, (iii) the accuracy of User Data, and (iv) for Customer Content (defined below), including without limitation the legality, accuracy and security of Customer Content. Customer must keep Account details, including Account access details, safe, secure and confidential at all times and shall immediately notify Testim in the event that Customer becomes aware of any unauthorized access to the Account or any violation of the TOS. Customer hereby releases Testim from any and all liability, losses and damages in connection with any unauthorized access or use of Customer’s Account and/or Customer Content.
The Customer shall have sole responsibility for the accuracy, quality and legality of the Customer Content and the means by which the Customer acquired the Customer Content.

“User Data” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable Customer (solely where the Customer is a natural person) and/or Permitted Users, such as name and email address, furnished to Testim solely in connection with access and use of the Website and/or the Services.
“Customer Content” means collectively (i) User Data, (ii) code and other content uploaded or otherwise provided by Customer and Representatives in connection with the Services, and (iii) the results and outputs of the Services.
As between the parties, Customer or its licensors own all right, title and interest in and to the Customer Content. Customer consents to the access and use of Customer Content by Testim and its third-party service providers to provide the Services and the Website, all in accordance with the TOS. In addition, unless stated otherwise in the Order, Customer grants Testim the right to use Customer’s name, mark and logo on the Website, in sales presentations, at trade shows, and in other marketing materials. Testim may ask Customer to participate in marketing activities such as testimonials and webinars.
Customer is solely responsible for the legality and appropriateness of all Customer Content and for compliance with all laws and regulations applicable to Customer Content, including without limitation all applicable import and export, intellectual property, and privacy and data protection laws and regulations. Without derogating from the generality of the foregoing, Customer shall ensure that Customer Content: (i) is not defamatory, misleading, fraudulent, does not promote or facilitate illegal activity, and does not contain illegal content, (ii) does not distribute viruses, worms, Trojan horses, corrupted files, time bombs, hoaxes, or other items of a disabling, destructive, damaging, or deceptive nature, and (iii) does not disable, interfere with, or circumvent any part of the Website or Services. Testim may, but is not obligated to, monitor Customer Content, and it is Customer’s sole responsibility to monitor all Customer Content to ensure that it complies with the TOS and applicable law, and Customer is solely responsible for properly handling and processing any communications sent to Customer alleging that Customer Content violates rights or otherwise is in breach of applicable law.
Testim and its licensors own and reserve all rights, title and interest in and to the Services, the Website and all of the content included therein, including without limitation to all of Testim’s copyrights, trademarks, service marks, and logos, all enhancements, modifications and derivatives thereto, and all related worldwide intellectual property rights, whether registered or not and whether registerable or not evidenced by or embodied in and/or attached/connected/related to the Website and/or Services. Nothing in the TOS grants Customer any right to use any of Testim’s intellectual property, including without limitation any of its copyrights, trademarks, service marks, or logos.
The Customer hereby acknowledges that Testim is the sole owner of, and may collect, disclose, publish and use in any other manner for any legitimate business purpose, anonymous information which is derived from the Customer’s use of the Services (i.e., non-identifiable information, aggregated and analytics information).
In consideration for Customer’s ongoing compliance with the TOS and full and punctual payment of the Subscription fees (to the extent applicable), Testim hereby grants Customer (i) a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable and revocable license to access and use the Services, solely for Customer’s internal business purposes; and (b) a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable and revocable license to install, use and operate the Plugin, solely in binary executable form, solely for Customer’s internal business purposes and solely for the purpose of using the Services (collectively, the “License”).
Access to the Services is subject to a subscription to a payment plan, in accordance with the payment model specified in our pricing page at https://www.testim.io/automation-testing-pricing, or as otherwise provided to the Customer in an Order (“Subscription” and “Pricing Page“, respectively).
To the extent that a Customer has not executed a signed written Order (which stipulates the Subscription terms and other use limitations) with Testim, the Customer’s use of the Services shall be subject to the “Community” free plan and its terms and use limitations stipulated in the Pricing Page.
Customer shall pay Testim the fees as set forth in the relevant Order (“Fees”) within thirty (30) days of date of invoice, unless other payment terms are specified in such Order, in which case those terms shall prevail. Invoicing of the Order amount shall be done on or prior to the beginning of the Term (as such term is defined below) (“Invoice Period”) and shall be paid by Customer within thirty (30) days of date of invoice, unless other terms are specified in the Order, in which case such terms will prevail. All Fees are non-cancellable and non-refundable, except as expressly specified in these TOS. Accordingly, Customer is responsible for paying the full amount of the Fees for each Invoice Period, whether or not Customer actually uses the Services during all or part of such Invoice Period. Accruing from the due date of payment, Testim is entitled to charge interest at the lower of: (i) 1% compounded interest per month, and (ii) the maximum interest rate permitted by applicable law.
Taxes. Fees do not include taxes, levies or duties of any nature. Customer is responsible for all applicable taxes (including without limitation all sales, use, shipment, value-added and other taxes), levies or duties arising in connection with the Services (except those assessable against Testim based on its income) when invoiced by Testim or will supply appropriate tax exemption certificates to Testim in a form satisfactory to Testim.
Testim reserves the right to modify the fees and prices for its Services at any time and at its sole discretion. Such pricing changes will NOT affect the Customer’s remaining period of the then in-effect Term.
Certain parts of the Services may be provided by third party service providers (“Third Party Services”). Subject to applicable law, Testim may, in Testim’s sole discretion, retain and replace Third Party Services and third-party service providers from time to time.
The License for the paid Services shall commence as of the starting date detailed in the applicable Order and will be in effect for the term specified in the Order (“Term”). At the end of each Term, the Services shall be automatically renewed for an additional Term, unless either party request otherwise in writing, such request shall be furnished no later than 30 days prior to the end of the respective Term. The Term for non-payment Services signed up for on the Website and not through an Order shall commence when Customer first accesses the Services via the Website, and shall continue until terminated by either Party in accordance with Section 11 below.
Customer may terminate the Services by providing written notice to Testim at [email protected] Once written notice is received, termination will take effect upon the last day of the Term, unless provided otherwise in the applicable Order in which case such provisions will prevail. Notwithstanding any other term in the TOS, Testim may terminate non-payment Services at any time and for any reason. In addition, Testim may terminate provision of the Website and/or Services immediately and without liability upon providing notice to Customer: (i) if Testim believes that Customer has violated any provision of the TOS or applicable law, (ii) if Testim is threatened with a legal claim related to the provision of the Website and/or Services, (iii) if Testim’s relationship with a third party service provider terminates or requires Testim to modify, suspend or terminate the Website and/or Services, (iv) if Testim believes providing the Website and/or Services could create a substantial or unreasonable economic or technical burden or security risk, (v) in order to comply with applicable law or requests of governmental or administrative entities, or (vi) if Testim determines that the use of the Website and/or Services by Customer or Testim’s provision of any of the Services has become impractical or unfeasible. Without limiting the foregoing, Testim reserves the right, at its sole discretion, at any time to modify, improve, correct or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Services or any part thereof, with or without notice. If Testim in its discretion chooses to cease providing the current version of the Website and/or Services or any of its features and/or specific functions, whether through discontinuation of the Website and/or Services or by upgrading or downgrading the Website and/or Services to a newer version, Customer may not be able to continue using the previous version of the Website and/or Services. Customer understands and agrees that features and/or functions of previous Services versions might be removed in future versions thereof, and that Testim shall not be liable to Customer or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Services. The sole remedy of Customer in the event of termination by Testim in accordance with this Section 11 is to receive a pro-rated refund of any pre-paid Fees for the remainder of the applicable Term.
Upon termination of the Term or the provision of the Website and/or Services, Customer’s License will end, all of Customer’s rights to use the Website and/or Services shall terminate, and Customer will no longer have access to any Customer Content and/or evaluations, tests, test results, electronic communications and/or data that was posted, uploaded or otherwise transmitted to the Services. Testim shall maintain Customer Content for 30 days and shall permit Customer to have limited access to the Platform solely for downloading and deleting any Customer Content. Thereafter, Testim will delete any applicable Customer Content. The provisions of these TOS that, by their nature and content, must survive the termination of these TOS in order to achieve the fundamental purposes of these TOS shall so survive.

Customer shall be fully responsible for its Permitted Users’ adherence to the TOS. As a condition to making the Services available to Customer, Customer undertakes that it will not assert, authorize, assist or encourage any third party to assert against Testim or its licensors, affiliates or users, any infringement or other claim in connection with the Website and/or Services. Except for the express rights granted herein, Testim does not grant, and Customer does not receive, any other rights, express or implied.

Customer acknowledges that the Fees, the Services, the software contained in the Services including the results of any performance tests of the Services or software, and any third-party data or information disclosed by or on behalf of Testim to Customer in connection with the Services shall be deemed to be Testim’s confidential information.

Testim shall notify Customer of any claim subject to indemnification, provided that Testim’s failure to do so shall not affect Customer’s obligations hereunder, except to the extent that Testim’s failure to promptly notify Customer materially delays or prejudices Customer’s ability to defend the claim. At Testim’s option, Customer will have the right to defend against any such claim with counsel of Customer’s choosing (subject to Testim’s written consent) and to settle such claim as Customer deems appropriate, provided that Customer shall not enter into any settlement without Testim’s prior written consent and provided that Testim may at any time elect to take over control of the defense and settlement of the claim upon written notice to Customer.
Testim will defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Customer and its subsidiaries, licensors, officers, directors and representatives from and against any third party claims, damages, losses, liabilities, costs, fines and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) directly arising out of: (i) Testim’s breach of any representations and warranties of the TOS or any applicable law, and (ii) a claim that the Services, Websites or performance of these Terms violate third party intellectual property rights.
In the event that either party shall be delayed or prevented from the performance of any obligation hereunder by reason of strike, labor trouble, inability to procure materials, power failure, government or judicial order, riot, insurrection, declared or undeclared war, terrorist act, weather or other Act of God, or any other reason beyond such party’s control, then performance of such party’s obligations under the TOS shall be excused for the period of such delay. The party affected by Force Majeure shall provide notice to the other party of the commencement and termination of the Force Majeure. In any event, the Customer will make best effort to make payments on a timely basis to Testim, and any delay will not in any way relieve Customer from any of its obligations with respect to the payment of Fees.
The TOS does not create any third-party beneficiary rights in any individual or entity that is not a party to the TOS.
Testim may update these TOS from time to time. Testim will notify Customer of material changes to these TOS by email, by posting notice of the update on the Website, or by any other reasonable means.

Otherwise, all other changes to these TOS are effective as of the stated “last revised” and your continued use of the Website and/or Services on or after the last revised date will constitute acceptance of, and agreement to be bound by, those changes. In the event that the terms should be amended to comply with any legal requirements, the amendments may take effect immediately, or as required by the law and without any prior notice.
The TOS constitutes the entire agreement between Customer and Testim.

No delay or failure to take any action with respect to any breach of the TOS shall constitute a waiver of such breach or any subsequent or other breach. All waivers must be in writing to be effective. If any provision of the TOS is declared invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the TOS shall not be affected thereby and shall remain in full force. For any questions, please contact Testim at: [email protected].
