A description of Subscriptions and Services offered by Company is available at: http://www.mongodb.com/legal/productschedule, which is incorporated by reference into this Agreement and which may be modified from time to time in Company’s sole discretion, provided that any modifications will not affect in a material reduction in Subscriptions and Services under an applicable Order Form or SOW.

If Customer has travel reimbursement policies, Customer must provide them to Company within five (5) business days of the effective date of the applicable Order Form or SOW. Customer will pay Fees and expenses within thirty (30) days of invoice, without deduction or setoff.

If any applicable law requires Customer to withhold amounts from any payments to Company under this Agreement, (a) Customer will effect such withholding, remit such amounts to the appropriate taxing authorities and promptly furnish Company with tax receipts evidencing the payments of such amounts and (b) the sum payable by Customer upon which the deduction or withholding is based will be increased to the extent necessary to ensure that, after such deduction or withholding, Company receives and retains, free from liability for such deduction or withholding, a net amount equal to the amount Company would have received and retained absent the required deduction or withholding.
3.1 For Software licensed under a commercial license, Company grants to Customer a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license during the term of the Subscription to use and reproduce the Software Edition on Servers for which Customer has purchased a Subscription solely in connection with Customer’s internal operations.
3.2 Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the foregoing Sections 3.1, for Software licensed under a commercial license, Customer may host the Software on behalf of its end users solely in conjunction with Customer’s applications; provided that Customer’s end users may not, at any time, access the Software directly. All of Customer’s Servers on which the Software is installed must be covered by the same Subscription level. Upon termination or expiration of the Subscription, this Agreement and all licenses granted hereunder will terminate with respect to that Subscription. Following such termination or expiration of the Subscription, and upon thirty (30) days written notice by Company, Customer will provide written confirmation to Company that it has: (a) removed or uninstalled the Software from all of its Servers which were licensed under a commercial license or (b) is using the Software under an open source license made available by Company.
3.3 Customer will not (and will not allow any third party to): (a) decompile, disassemble, translate, reverse engineer or otherwise attempt to derive source code from any encrypted or encoded portion of the Software, in whole or in part, nor will Customer use any mechanical, electronic or other method to trace, decompile, disassemble, or identify the source code of the Software or encourage or permit others to do so (except and only to the extent that applicable law prohibits or restricts reverse engineering restrictions), (b) sell, sublicense, rent, lease, distribute, market, or commercialize the Software for any purpose, including timesharing or service bureau purposes, (c) create, develop, license, install, use, or deploy any third party software or services to circumvent, enable, modify or provide access, permissions or rights which violate the technical restrictions of the Software, (d) remove any product identification, proprietary, copyright or other notices contained in the Software, (e) modify or create a derivative work of any encrypted or encoded portion of the Software, or any other portion of the Software, (f) publicly disseminate performance information or analysis including, without limitation benchmarking test results; (g) use the Software other than on Servers; or (h) change any proprietary rights notices which appear in the Software or Documentation.
