Cribl Products do not include Packs created or offered by anyone other than Cribl, or any products or services created or offered by anyone other than Cribl (“Third-party Products”) even if Cribl lists or provides the Third-party Product on its website, Cribl.Cloud, the Cribl Pack Dispensary, or other media, or the Third-party Product interacts or functions with a Cribl Product. Packs are software or configuration files that provide features and settings for Cribl Products. Packs may be governed by separate licenses. Packs may be offered by Cribl, Cribl’s partners, and others.
Cribl may provide Cribl Products to other customers and may provide software updates to Cribl Products from time to time as provided in this agreement.
3. Your use of Cribl Products.
You can use Cribl Products by accepting this agreement and obtaining the appropriate license, usage terms, and deployment option through an Order. You can use a Pack by accepting the license terms for that Pack and, if applicable, obtaining the appropriate license and usage terms from the licensing party for that Pack. Packs offered by Cribl are subject to this agreement and any other terms provided by the given Pack.
You must pay for all Cribl Products as provided by this agreement and your Order. You will be charged fees for Cribl Products based on the license, usage terms, and fee schedule described in your Order or, if a fee schedule is not included in your Order, at https://cribl.io/cribl-pricing or otherwise on Cribl’s website; the applicable fee schedule is incorporated by reference into this agreement.

You may purchase credits that may be used on Cribl’s website to pay fees for future use of Cloud Products (“Cribl Credits”). Cribl Credits can roll over to subsequent agreement terms through a renewal of the previous agreement term; Cribl Credits cannot be refunded or transferred. Cribl may provide other credits, as provided in this agreement or as Cribl may provide in its complete discretion, that may also be used on Cribl’s website to pay fees for Cloud Products (“Cloud Product Credits”).

Cribl will provide support services and maintenance updates for the current version of Cribl Products. Cribl may provide support services and maintenance updates for previous versions of Cribl Products on an exception basis to resolve critical security vulnerabilities, except that Cribl will only provide maintenance updates for the current version of Cloud Products.
Cribl will provide Cloud Products with at least 99.5% availability during any thirty (30) day period; Cloud Products that Cribl designates as free or that involve customer-managed components in a hybrid cloud deployment do not have a minimum uptime. If Cribl does not provide LogStream Cloud with the applicable minimum uptime, Cribl will provide you with Cloud Product Credits equal to 5% of your previous month’s usage from the month in which the disruption occurred if the disruption is between 99% and 99.5% uptime, 10% if between 98% and less than 99%, and 20% if less than 98%. Uptime calculations do not include scheduled and emergency maintenance, disruption due to your equipment or system failures, your failure to comply with this agreement, or any disruption outside of Cribl’s reasonable control, including without limitation wide-spread Internet outages and acts of God.
To request a Cloud Product Credit, you must submit a ticket to support with sufficient information and documentation to show the qualifying downtime. Cribl will review the request and make determinations, within thirty days of receiving your request and in its complete description, of whether and the extent to which a qualifying downtime occurred. Cribl will provide appropriate Cloud Product Credits within thirty days of determining a qualifying downtime occurred.
You can authorize other persons or organizations to use Cribl Products on your behalf to the extent allowed by this agreement, but except as specifically provided in your Order you cannot process data using Cribl Products for anyone else or let anyone else use your access to Cribl Products to process data using Cribl Products for anyone else other than you. You are responsible for all use related to your access to Cribl Products. Your use of and access to Cribl Products is not for resale, transfer, or other distribution except as specifically provided in your Order.

Cribl may suspend your use of Cloud Products if Cribl reasonably believes you are violating this agreement, disrupting Cribl’s systems or other users, generating data transfer costs that Cribl reasonably determines to be excessive, or otherwise using a Cloud Product inappropriately. Cribl may implement changes to Cloud Products as necessary and without prior notice or consent.
Cribl may use free- or open-source software in its products or services, including without limitation as described in Cribl’s documentation available at https://docs.cribl.io/.
