Purchases are not contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or features. Customer’s Affiliates that have executed Order Forms with DroneDeploy may use the Services for so long as they remain Affiliates. The term “Customer” includes any such Affiliates.
- Users and Sites.
- Customer shall ensure that each User is individually registered and that Users do not share their access credentials with others. The total number of Users may not exceed the number of subscribers (or “subscriber seats”) specified in any Order Form. Customer will assign a single User for each subscriber seat; multiple Users may not access the Services as the same subscriber. Customers may reassign a subscriber seat to a new User in good faith for a bona fide business purpose (i.e., not as a means to avoid purchasing additional subscriber seats).
- If the Order Form specifies the sites or locations on which the Services are to be used, Customer must use the Services on such sites or locations and may not use the Services on any other site or location.
- Customer agrees to abide by the foregoing policy in good faith and to inform DroneDeploy if it exceeds the specified number of subscribers or needs to deploy the Services at additional sites or locations. DroneDeploy may evaluate Customer’s compliance with the foregoing policy at any time and may invoice Customer for additional subscriber seats or sites or locations if DroneDeploy determines that the subscriber limitations have not been complied with in good faith. DroneDeploy takes this policy seriously and reserves the right to suspend or terminate the Services for any failures comply with this policy.
- Notwithstanding the foregoing, machine user accounts that act on behalf of multiple individual Users may be created with prior written consent from DroneDeploy for the sole purpose of Customers controlling the use of DroneDeploy’s API.

- Removal of Third Party Services and Customer Content. If Customer receives notice that any Third Party Service or Customer Content must be removed, modified and/or disabled to avoid violating applicable law, third-party rights, or any applicable contractual rights, Customer will promptly do so. If Customer does not take required action in accordance with the above, or if in DroneDeploy’s judgment continued violation is likely to reoccur, DroneDeploy may disable and/or remove the applicable Third Party Service or Customer Content. If requested by DroneDeploy, Customer will confirm such deletion and discontinuance of use in writing and DroneDeploy is authorized to provide a copy of such confirmation to any third party claimant or governmental authority, as applicable. In addition, if DroneDeploy is required by any third party rights holder, law enforcement or regulatory agency to remove Third Party Services or Customer Content, or receives information that a Third Party Service or Customer Content may violate applicable law or third-party rights, DroneDeploy may disable, remove or discontinue its integration with such Third Party Service or Customer Content.
- Robot Operations. Customer is solely responsible for ensuring compliance with all applicable legal requirements for the operation of any Robot, including any requirement to detect and avoid aircrafts and drones and to obtain proper airspace authorizations. Customer must at all times comply with all applicable local, state, national, and international laws and regulations related to the operation of Robots and use of the Services in the territory of operation, including any applicable laws with regard to privacy, any applicable product documentation and the terms of the agreement under which Customer procured any Robot. Customer, and not DroneDeploy, is responsible for the safety and security of any Robot operations carried out by Customer.
- Third Party Services.
- Third Party Services. DroneDeploy or third parties may make Third Party Services available to Customer. Customer’s acquisition and use of Third Party Services, including any exchange of data between Customer and any Third Party Service, is solely between Customer and the applicable third party. DroneDeploy does not warrant or support Third Party Services, whether or not they are available within the Services, unless expressly provided otherwise in an Order Form. DroneDeploy is not responsible for any disclosure, modification or deletion of Customer Content or Third Party Content resulting from a Third Party Service.
- Integration with Third Party Services. The Services may interoperate with and allow Customer to export or integrate data to Third Party Services. DroneDeploy cannot guarantee the continued availability of such functionality and may cease providing it without entitling Customer to any refund, credit, or other compensation (for example and without limitation, if the provider of a Third Party Service ceases to support interoperation in a manner acceptable to DroneDeploy).
- Fees and Payment.
- Fees. Customer will pay all fees specified in Order Forms or online portals. Except as otherwise specified herein or in an Order Form, (i) fees are based on Services and subscriptions purchased and not actual usage, (ii) payment obligations are non-cancelable and fees paid are non-refundable, and (iii) quantities purchased cannot be decreased during the relevant subscription term.
- Invoicing and Payment. Customer will provide DroneDeploy with valid and updated credit card information or an alternative payment source reasonably acceptable to DroneDeploy (such as bank transfer or ACH). If Customer provides credit card information to DroneDeploy, Customer authorizes DroneDeploy to charge such credit card for all Purchased Services listed in the Order Form for the initial subscription term and any renewal subscription term(s) as set forth in the “Term of Purchased Subscriptions” section below. Such charges shall be made in advance, either annually or in accordance with any different billing frequency stated in the applicable Order Form. If the Order Form specifies that payment will be by a method other than a credit card, DroneDeploy will invoice Customer in advance and otherwise in accordance with the relevant Order Form. Unless otherwise stated in the Order Form, invoiced fees are due net 30 days from the invoice date. Customer is responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information to DroneDeploy and notifying DroneDeploy of any changes to such information.
- Overdue Charges. If any amounts not paid by the due date then, without limiting DroneDeploy’s rights or remedies, (a) those charges may accrue late interest at the lower of 1.5% per month or the maximum rate permitted by law, and/or (b) DroneDeploy may condition future subscription renewals and Order Forms on different payment terms.
- Payment Disputes. DroneDeploy will not exercise its rights under the “Overdue Charges” or “Suspension” sections if Customer is disputing the applicable charges reasonably and in good faith and is cooperating diligently to resolve the dispute.
- Taxes. DroneDeploy’s fees do not include all taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, 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 its purchases hereunder. If DroneDeploy has the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which Customer is responsible under this section, DroneDeploy will invoice Customer and Customer will pay that amount unless Customer provides DroneDeploy with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. For clarity, DroneDeploy is solely responsible for taxes assessable against it based on its income, property and employees.
- Proprietary Rights and Licenses.
- Ownership. As between the parties, DroneDeploy owns all right, title and interest in the Services and the DroneDeploy Content, and the applicable third parties own all right title and interest in the Third Party Services. DroneDeploy and such third parties reserve all rights other than as expressly set forth herein. DroneDeploy may use any suggestions or feedback without accounting, attribution or compensation to Customer.
- Customer Content.
- As between the parties, Customer is the author/creator of and owns all right, title and interest in Customer Content. Except as expressly set forth herein, nothing contained in this Agreement shall be construed as granting DroneDeploy any right to use Customer Content. To the extent that DroneDeploy is held to be the author/creator of any Customer Content created via the Services, DroneDeploy hereby assigns to Customer all right, title and interest in such Customer Content.
- If Customer uses a Third Party Service with or as part of the Service, Customer grants DroneDeploy permission to allow the Third Party Service and its provider to access Customer Content and information about Customer’s usage of the Third Party Service as appropriate for the interoperation of that Third Party Service with the Service.
- Customer Content Representations and Warranties. Customer is solely responsible for the Customer Content and the consequences of posting or publishing Customer Content. Customer represents and warrants that: (a) Customer is the creator and owner of, or has the necessary licenses, rights, consents, and permissions to use the Customer Content and to authorize DroneDeploy to use the Customer Content as described herein; and (b) the Customer Content, and the use thereof as contemplated herein, does not: (i) infringe any third-party right, including any intellectual property, privacy or proprietary right; or (ii) slander, defame, libel, or invade the right of privacy, publicity or other property rights of any other person.
- Customer Content Disclaimer. DroneDeploy is under no obligation to edit or control Customer Content that Customer and its Users post or publish, and will not be in any way responsible or liable for Customer Content. DroneDeploy may, however, at any time and without prior notice, screen, remove, edit, or block any Customer Content that in its sole judgment violates this Agreement or is otherwise objectionable.
- Performance. If the Order Form includes services to assist Customer in implementing the Services (“Implementation Services”), then this section applies. Customer will cooperate reasonably and in good faith with DroneDeploy in its performance of Implementation Services. Customer is responsible for obtaining any licenses or permissions required and for providing DroneDeploy with access to its equipment, systems and/or facilities as needed for DroneDeploy to perform the Implementation Services. Any delays in the performance of Implementation Services caused by Customer may result in additional applicable charges for resource time. Customer will reimburse DroneDeploy for reasonable travel and out-of-pocket expenses incurred in connection with Implementation Services. If an estimate of incidental expenses is provided in the applicable Order Form, DroneDeploy will not exceed such estimate without the written consent of Customer.
- Warranty. DroneDeploy warrants that the Implementation Services will be performed in a professional and workmanlike manner in accordance with generally accepted industry standards. For any breach of the above warranty, Customer’s exclusive remedy and DroneDeploy’s entire liability will be the re-performance of the applicable Implementation Services. If DroneDeploy is unable to re-perform the Implementation Services as warranted, Customer will be entitled to recover the Implementation Services fees paid to DroneDeploy for the deficient Implementation Services. Customer must make any claim under the foregoing warranty to DroneDeploy in writing within 30 days of performance of such Implementation Services in order to receive warranty remedies.
- Disclaimer. THIS WARRANTY IS EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES. DRONEDEPLOY MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTY OF ANY KIND WITH RESPECT TO THE IMPLEMENTATION SERVICES, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, AND SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
Warranties and Disclaimer.
- Confidential Information. “Confidential Information” means any information relating to or disclosed in the course of this Agreement, which is or should be reasonably understood to be confidential. The terms of this Agreement are the Confidential Information of each party (not to be disclosed by a party without the written consent of the other) and any non-public DroneDeploy Content, Third Party Services, and data regarding the performance of the Services is DroneDeploy Confidential Information. Confidential Information does not include information that (a) is or becomes part of the public domain through no fault of the receiving party, (b) was already in possession of the receiving party, or (c) was independently developed by the receiving party without violation of this section.
- Mutual Obligations. The receiving party will use the same care to protect Confidential Information as it uses for its own similar information, but in no event less than reasonable care, and will use Confidential Information only for the purpose of fulfilling its obligations and exercising its rights under this Agreement. The receiving party will promptly return or destroy the other party’s Confidential Information upon request of the other party. The receiving party may disclose Confidential Information if required to do so by law, if the receiving party provides the disclosing party with prompt notice and complies with any protective order imposed on such disclosure.
- DroneDeploy Warranties. DroneDeploy warrants that during an applicable subscription term (a) DroneDeploy will maintain commercially reasonable administrative, physical, and technical safeguards for protection of the security, confidentiality and integrity of Customer Content, (b) DroneDeploy will not materially decrease the overall security of the Services, (c) subject to the “Third Party Services” section above, DroneDeploy will not materially decrease the overall functionality of the Services. For any breach of a warranty above, Customer’s exclusive remedies are those described in the “Termination” and “Refund or Payment upon Termination” sections below.
- Disclaimers. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED HEREIN, NEITHER PARTY MAKES ANY WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, AND EACH PARTY SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. DRONEDEPLOY MAKES NO WARRANTY AND HAS NO LIABILITY FOR THIRD PARTY SERVICES. FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT, DRONEDEPLOY SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOSS, CORRUPTION OR DESTRUCTION OF CUSTOMER CONTENT OR THIRD PARTY SERVICES.
Limitation of Liability.
- Indemnification by DroneDeploy. DroneDeploy will defend Customer against any claim, demand, suit or proceeding made or brought against Customer by a third party alleging that any Purchased Service infringes or misappropriates such third party’s intellectual property rights (a “Claim Against Customer”), and will indemnify Customer from any damages, attorney fees and costs finally awarded against Customer as a result of, or for amounts paid by Customer under a settlement approved by DroneDeploy in writing of, a Claim Against Customer, provided Customer (a) promptly gives DroneDeploy written notice of the Claim Against Customer, (b) gives DroneDeploy sole control of the defense and settlement of the Claim Against Customer (except that DroneDeploy may not settle any Claim Against Customer unless it unconditionally releases Customer of all liability), and (c) gives DroneDeploy all reasonable assistance, at DroneDeploy’s expense. If DroneDeploy receives information about an actual or potential infringement or misappropriation claim related to a Service, DroneDeploy may in its discretion and at no cost to Customer (i) modify the Services so that they are no longer claimed to infringe or misappropriate, without breaching DroneDeploy’s warranties under “DroneDeploy Warranties” above, (ii) obtain a license for Customer’s continued use of that Service in accordance with this Agreement, or (iii) terminate Customer’s subscriptions for that Service upon 30 days’ written notice and refund Customer any prepaid fees covering the remainder of the term of the terminated subscriptions. The above defense and indemnification obligations do not apply if (1) the allegation does not state with specificity that the Services are the basis of the Claim Against Customer; (2) a Claim Against Customer arises from the use or combination of the Services or any part thereof with software, hardware, data, or processes not provided by DroneDeploy, if the Services or use thereof would not infringe without such combination; (3) a Claim Against Customer arises from Services under an Order Form for which there is no charge; or (4) a Claim Against Customer arises from Customer Content, a Third Party Service or Customer’s breach of this Agreement or applicable Order Forms. This “Indemnification by DroneDeploy” section states DroneDeploy’s sole liability to, and Customer’s exclusive remedy for, intellectual property claims.
- Indemnification by Customer. Customer will defend DroneDeploy and its Affiliates against any claim, demand, suit or proceeding made or brought against DroneDeploy by a third party alleging (a) that any Customer Content or Customer’s use of Customer Content with the Services, (b) any Third Party Service used by Customer, or (c) the combination of a Third Party Service and the Services, infringes or misappropriates third party intellectual property rights, or arising from Customer’s use of the Services, Third Party Services, DroneDeploy Content or Customer Content in an unlawful manner or in violation of the Agreement, or Order Form (each a “Claim Against DroneDeploy”), and will indemnify DroneDeploy from any damages, attorney fees and costs finally awarded against DroneDeploy as a result of, or for any amounts paid by DroneDeploy under a settlement approved by Customer in writing of, a Claim Against DroneDeploy, provided DroneDeploy (a) promptly gives Customer written notice of the Claim Against DroneDeploy, (b) gives Customer sole control of the defense and settlement of the Claim Against DroneDeploy (except that Customer may not settle any Claim Against DroneDeploy unless it unconditionally releases DroneDeploy of all liability), and (c) gives Customer all reasonable assistance, at Customer’s expense. The above defense and indemnification obligations do not apply if a Claim Against DroneDeploy arises from DroneDeploy’s breach of this Agreement or applicable Order Forms.
Term, Suspension and Termination
- Liability. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF EACH PARTY TOGETHER WITH ALL OF ITS AFFILIATES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT PAID BY CUSTOMER AND ITS AFFILIATES HEREUNDER FOR THE SERVICES GIVING RISE TO THE LIABILITY IN THE TWELVE MONTHS PRECEDING THE FIRST INCIDENT OUT OF WHICH THE LIABILITY AROSE. THE FOREGOING LIMITATION WILL APPLY WHETHER AN ACTION IS IN CONTRACT OR TORT AND REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY, BUT WILL NOT LIMIT CUSTOMER’S AND ITS AFFILIATES’ PAYMENT OBLIGATIONS UNDER THE “FEES AND PAYMENT” SECTION ABOVE.
Consequential Damages. IN NO EVENT WILL EITHER PARTY OR ITS AFFILIATES HAVE ANY LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT FOR ANY LOST PROFITS, REVENUES, GOODWILL, OR INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, COVER, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, WHETHER AN ACTION IS IN CONTRACT OR TORT AND REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY, EVEN IF A PARTY OR ITS AFFILIATES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES OR IF A PARTY’S OR ITS AFFILIATES’ REMEDY OTHERWISE FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. THE FOREGOING DISCLAIMER WILL NOT APPLY TO THE EXTENT PROHIBITED BY LAW.
- Term of Agreement. This Agreement commences on the date Customer first accepts it and continues until all subscriptions hereunder have expired or have been terminated.
- Term of Purchased Subscriptions. The term of each subscription shall be as specified in the applicable Order Form. Except as otherwise specified in an Order Form, subscriptions will automatically renew for additional periods equal to the expiring subscription term or one year (whichever is shorter), unless either party gives the other written notice (email acceptable) at least 30 days before the end of the relevant subscription term. Except as expressly provided in the applicable Order Form, renewal of promotional or one-time priced subscriptions will be at DroneDeploy’s applicable list price in effect at the time of the applicable renewal. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, any renewal in which subscription volume or subscription length for any Services has decreased from the prior term will result in re-pricing at renewal without regard to the prior term’s per-unit pricing.
- If any charge owing by Customer under this or any other agreement for services is 30 days or more overdue, (or 10 or more days overdue in the case of amounts Customer has authorized DroneDeploy to charge to Customer’s credit card), DroneDeploy may, without limiting its other rights and remedies, accelerate Customer’s unpaid fee obligations under such agreements so that all such obligations become immediately due and payable, and suspend Services until such amounts are paid in full, provided that, other than for Customers paying by credit card or direct debit whose payment has been declined, DroneDeploy will give Customer at least 10 days’ prior notice that its account is overdue, in accordance with the “Manner of Giving Notice” section below for billing notices, before suspending services to Customer.
- DroneDeploy may suspend or terminate the Services upon any breach of the sections “Customer Responsibilities”, “Usage Restrictions” or “Customer Content Representations and Warranties”, or any other use of the Services that in DroneDeploy’s judgment threatens the security, integrity or availability of DroneDeploy’s services, or any other use that may create liability for DroneDeploy or the providers of Third Party Services. DroneDeploy will use commercially reasonable efforts under the circumstances to inform Customer of the suspension or termination and will work with Customer in good faith if Customer attempts to resolve the issue. If usage does not come into compliance with this Agreement and any other applicable terms between you and DroneDeploy, we reserve the right to limit your account or terminate the Services. For the avoidance of doubt, fees will not be tolled during any suspension or termination and no refunds will be given.
- Termination. A party may terminate this Agreement for cause (i) upon 30 days written notice to the other party of a material breach if such breach remains uncured at the expiration of such period, or (ii) if the other party becomes the subject of a petition in bankruptcy or any other proceeding relating to insolvency, receivership, liquidation or assignment for the benefit of creditors.
- Refund or Payment upon Termination. If this Agreement is terminated by Customer in accordance with the “Termination” section above, DroneDeploy will refund Customer any prepaid fees covering the remainder of the term of all Order Forms after the effective date of termination. If this Agreement is terminated by DroneDeploy in accordance with the “Termination” section above, Customer will pay any unpaid fees covering the remainder of the term of all Order Forms to the extent permitted by applicable law. In no event will termination relieve Customer of its obligation to pay any fees due for the period prior to the effective date of termination.
- Surviving Provisions. The sections titled “Free Trial Services,” “Removal of Third Party Services and Customer Content” (but not including the license to DroneDeploy), “Fees and Payment,” “Proprietary Rights and Licenses,” “Confidentiality,” “Disclaimers,” “Mutual Indemnification,” “Limitation of Liability,” “Refund or Payment upon Termination,” “Surviving Provisions” and “General Provisions” will survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement, and the section titled “Data Privacy and Security” will survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement for so long as DroneDeploy possesses Customer Content.

Customer will not permit any User to access, use or export any of the foregoing in a U.S.-embargoed country or region (currently Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, Syria or Crimea) or in violation of any U.S. export law or regulation. Each party represents that it is not named on any U.S. government denied-party list. In addition, each party represents that it has not received or been offered any illegal or improper bribe, kickback, payment, gift, or thing of value from an employee or agent of the other party in connection with this Agreement. Reasonable gifts and entertainment provided in the ordinary course of business do not violate the above restriction.
Marketing. Unless provided otherwise in the Order Form, DroneDeploy may publicly refer to Customer orally and in writing, including on DroneDeploy’s website and sales presentations, as a customer of DroneDeploy and may use Customer’s logo for such purposes.
- Entire Agreement and Order of Precedence. This Agreement is the entire agreement between the parties relating to this subject matter and supersedes all other agreements, proposals or representations, written or oral, concerning such subject matter. If Customer purchases additional services or uses the DroneDeploy API, additional terms may apply. Any conflicting or additional term or condition stated in a Customer purchase order or in any other Customer order documentation (excluding Order Forms executed by DroneDeploy) is void. In the event of conflict or inconsistency, the order of precedence shall be: (1) the applicable Order Form, and (2) this Agreement. Titles and headings of sections of this Agreement are for convenience only and shall not affect the construction of any provision of this Agreement.
- Assignment. This Agreement is not transferable or assignable without prior written consent of the non-assigning party, except that either party may assign this Agreement in its entirety (including all Order Forms) without consent to an Affiliate or in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of its assets. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a party is acquired by, sells substantially all of its assets to, or undergoes a change of control in favor of, a direct competitor of the other party, then such other party may terminate this Agreement upon notice. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their respective successors and permitted assigns.
