WalkMe’s Subscription Services and/or Professional Services as specified and defined in an applicable Order Form shall be referred to as the “Service”.
Each Order Form executed by the Parties is governed by this Agreement and is subject thereto.
1.2.1. Pursuant to the rights granted to Customer under this Agreement, Customer may permit its Affiliates (as defined below), to access and use the Subscription Services in accordance with this Agreement provided, however, that Customer shall be responsible for, and liable to, WalkMe for the acts and omissions of any such Affiliate and its End Users to the extent any such acts and omissions, if performed by Customer, would constitute a breach of, or otherwise give rise to liability to Customer under the Agreement.
1.2.2. If a Customer Affiliate directly subscribes to the Subscription Services, that Affiliate may enter into an Order Form directly with WalkMe. Such Order Form shall be subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. In such instances, each Customer Affiliate shall be liable to WalkMe for its use of the Subscription Services in compliance with this Agreement. Where a Customer’s Affiliate and WalkMe’s Affiliate enter into an Order Form, then references to “WalkMe” in this Agreement shall mean and be read as references to that specific WalkMe’s Affiliate which is party to that relevant Order Form, and the references to “Customer” in this Agreement shall mean and be read as references to that specific Customer’s Affiliate which is party to that relevant Order Form.
“Affiliate” means an entity owned by, controlling, controlled by, or under common control with, directly or indirectly with a Party. For the purposes of this Agreement, “control” means the direct or indirect ownership of more than 50% of the voting securities or other ownership interest of such entity or party.
2. Right to Use the Service
2.1. Right to Use the Service. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and of an applicable Order Form then in force, WalkMe grants to Customer and its permitted Affiliates a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sub-licensable, limited right to access and use the Service during the subscription term, and in accordance with the usage terms set forth herein and in the applicable Order Form.
For the purpose of this Agreement or any applicable Order Form, “End User(s)” means individual(s) for whom the Subscription Services load.
2.2. Usage Restrictions. Other than the rights expressly specified in this Agreement and in an applicable Order Form, no other right or interest whatsoever is granted to Customer in connection with the Service or to the solutions to which it provides access. Without limiting the foregoing, Customer may not: (i) use the Service for purposes other than the purposes for which it is intended as defined in this Agreement and/or the applicable Order Form; (ii); rent, lease, lend, sell, sublicense, assign, distribute, or transfer in whole or in part the right to use the Service or any part thereof; (iii) bypass or breach any security device or protection used by the Service; (iv) input, upload, transmit, or otherwise provide to or through the Service any information or materials that are unlawful or injurious, or that contain, transmit, or activate any harmful code; (v) use the Service in any illegal manner or in any way that infringes the right of any third party. In addition, in the event the Order Form limits the usage to a certain number of End Users, Customer shall ensure that the quantity of End Users who may access and use the Service in any given calendar month, will not exceed the quantity set forth in the Order Form.
2.3. Use Verification. Customer is solely responsible for usage of the Subscription Service in compliance with the access and use rights and limitations identified on the applicable Order Form. WalkMe may remotely review the scope of Customers use of the Subscription Service, and on WalkMe’s written request, Customer will provide reasonable assistance to verify Customers compliance with the Agreement with respect to access to and use of the Subscription Service. If WalkMe determines that Customer has exceeded its permitted access and use rights to the Subscription Service (“Overage”), WalkMe will notify Customer and Customer will, within thirty (30) days, either (1) disable any unpermitted use; or (2) purchase additional subscriptions commensurate with Customers actual usage as identified on the applicable Order Form.
3. Professional Services
If an applicable Order Form includes the provision of certain professional services (which typically include implementation, training with respect of the use of the Service, or assistance in creating Outputs (as defined below)) (“Professional Services“), then such services shall be provided in accordance with the Statement of Work to be attached to the Order Form (“SOW“).
The Professional Services shall be provided remotely (and not at Customer’s site), unless otherwise agreed in writing between the Parties. If agreed, the Professional Services can be performed by a third party.
4. Consideration; Taxes
4.1. Consideration. Customer will timely pay all fees for the Service (“Subscription Fees“), as specified in an applicable Order Form, and all fees for the Professional Services as set forth in the applicable SOW, or in the Order Form, as applicable. To the extent Customer is entering into a multi-year term, Customer acknowledges and agrees that, its multi-year commitment is of the essence to WalkMe as a SaaS provider, and WalkMe has extended pricing based on this commitment. Any attempt to terminate early will cause significant harm to WalkMe.
4.2. Subscription Fees. The Subscription Fees constitute the consideration for the WalkMe’s solution, i.e. the specific modules and features and the digital platform/application/devices explicitly identified in the Order Form. Except as otherwise specified herein or in an Order Form: (i) the fees for the Service are based on the Service purchased and not on actual usage thereof, and fees paid are non-refundable; and (ii) Service ordered under an applicable Order Form and their respective payment obligations are non-cancelable. Notwithstanding the aforementioned, in an event of termination for cause according to Section 11.2. below, due to a material breach by WalkMe, the foregoing shall not apply to amounts paid for the Service in advance, but which are unused on the date of termination (calculated on a pro-rata basis of the balance period between the termination date and the original term of the applicable Order Form), which may be refundable.
4.3. Invoicing. Customer is responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information to WalkMe.
4.4. Taxes. WalkMe’s fees are exclusive of any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, other charges, domestic or foreign imposed by any federal, state, or local tax authority with respect thereto including, for example, value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes, assessable by any jurisdiction whatsoever (collectively, “Taxes”). Customer is responsible for paying all Taxes associated with Customer’s purchases hereunder. If WalkMe has the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which Customer is responsible under this Section 4, WalkMe will invoice Customer and Customer will pay that amount unless Customer provides WalkMe with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. To the extent Customer is required by law to withhold income-based taxes based upon the fees hereunder, Customer will deduct such tax from the fees payable to WalkMe and remit them to the appropriate government authorities; provided that Customer sends WalkMe a receipt showing the payment of such Tax, and provides WalkMe with reasonable support and with sufficient evidence to enable WalkMe to obtain any credits available to it. For clarity, WalkMe is solely responsible for Taxes assessable against it based on its income, property and employees.
5. Privacy and Data Protection; Security
5.1. Collection and Storage by WalkMe. Solely to the extent necessary for the provision of the Service to the Customer (as described in detail in the DPA referred below), WalkMe (in its capacity as Data Processor) may from time to time be provided with, or have access to, information of Customer (in its capacity as Data Controller), which may qualify as Personal Data (as these terms are defined in the DPA).

Furthermore, Customer’s information is stored with logical separation from information of other customers. In addition, WalkMe shall have in place and shall comply with documented written policies and procedures, periodically reviewed, covering the administrative, physical and technical safeguards in place and relevant to the access, use, loss, alteration, disclosure, storage, destruction and control of information.
