Vereinbarung für Tier-2-Channel-Partner von Atlassian
This Atlassian Tier 2 Channel Partner Agreement (the “Agreement”) is made by and between Atlassian Pty Ltd (“Atlassian”), an Australian corporation (ABN 53 102 443 916), and the applicable channel partner (“Channel Partner”). Individually, either Channel Partner or Atlassian may be referred to as a “Party” and, together, Atlassian and Channel Partner shall be referred to as the “Parties”. This Agreement does not have to be signed in order to be binding. This Agreement is binding on Channel Partner and is effective as of the earliest date on which: (1) Channel Partner clicks “I agree” (or a similar button) or (2) Channel Partner submits any Order to Carahsoft, as described below (the “Effective Date”). If you do not agree to this Agreement, you are not eligible to resell Products hereunder. If you are agreeing to this Agreement on behalf of a company, then “Channel Partner” means that company and you are binding your company to this Agreement.
Important Terms Regarding Carahsoft: This Agreement applies only to channel partners of Atlassian’s reseller, Carahsoft Technology Corp. (“Carahsoft”).

Channel Partner will pay applicable fees for its Orders directly to Carahsoft, as further described in Section 5 (Orders and Delivery). However, nothing in any Order or contract between Channel Partner and Carahsoft modifies or limits Channel Partner’s obligations or Atlassian’s rights or obligations under this Agreement. If Channel Partner has a separate agreement with Atlassian (whether as a customer, Atlassian Solution Partner or reseller) that is separate from Channel Partner’s role as a Carahsoft channel partner, this Agreement will not modify such separate agreement.

1.4 “End User” means, as applicable, either (1) the United States federal government agency to which Channel Partner resells a license to Software or subscription to Hosted Services for such government agency’s internal use only (such agency referred to as a “Government End User”) or (2) other than Government End Users, any person or an entity to which Channel Partner resells a license to Software or subscription to Hosted Services for such person’s or entity’s personal or internal use only.
1.5 “Government Agency” means a United States federal government agency with which Channel Partner has a contract for the resale of commercial items to Government End Users.

Each End User must agree to the Customer Agreement prior to use of the Products, as further described in Section 3.2. This right to resell does not apply to any other end user or Products (including without limitation any sale to any related party, organization or affiliate, or to any subsequent, additional or renewal sale to the same party)

Channel Partner may not resell or access any Products hereunder except for those that it purchases directly from Carahsoft in accordance with this Agreement (e.g., Channel Partner may not resell Products purchased from another reseller). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, entering into this Agreement does not qualify Channel Partner as an Atlassian Solution Partner or grant Channel Partner any related rights. Nor does Channel Partner have the right under this Agreement to access Atlassian’s reseller portal, webinars, events, collateral, systems, Atlassian Marks, or other related program documentation or materials, unless expressly specified in writing by Atlassian.

(c) decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble, modify, adapt, create derivative works from, or otherwise attempt to derive, any portion of the Products (including any source code, object code or underlying structure, ideas or algorithms thereof).

(d) use the Software (or any portion thereof) for time sharing, hosting, service provider or like purposes;
(e) except as permitted under Section 2.6 (Trademarks), publish, promote, broadcast, circulate or refer publicly to any Atlassian Trademarks;

2.5 Feedback. Channel Partner hereby grants Atlassian a worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive, perpetual and irrevocable license to use, copy, modify and otherwise exploit Feedback for any purpose, including incorporating or implementing the Feedback in the Products or Atlassian Materials. Channel Partner agrees that Atlassian may exploit all Feedback without any restriction or obligation on account of intellectual property rights or otherwise. For clarity, no Feedback will be deemed Channel Partner’s Confidential Information, and nothing in this Agreement (including Section 7 (Confidential Information)) limits Atlassian's right to independently use, develop, evaluate, or market products or services, whether incorporating Feedback or otherwise. “Feedback” means any feedback, comments, suggestions or materials that Channel Partner may provide to Atlassian about or in connection with the Products or Atlassian Materials, including any ideas, concepts, know-how or techniques contained therein.

All use of and goodwill associated with the Atlassian Marks shall inure to the sole benefit of Atlassian. Channel Partner shall not remove any trademarks or other proprietary notices incorporated in, marked on, or fixed to the Products. Channel Partner acknowledges that its representation of the Products in a professional and positive manner, consistent with the materials provided by Atlassian, is essential to Atlassian’s goodwill in the Products, and agrees that its failure to do so shall be a material breach of this Agreement. Channel Partner acknowledges that any unauthorized use of the Atlassian Marks shall constitute infringement of the Atlassian Marks and a material breach of this Agreement.
2.7 Non-Exclusive. The rights granted to Channel Partner hereunder are non-exclusive and nothing under this Agreement shall be deemed to prohibit Atlassian from entering into any reseller, end-user license, services or other agreement with any party anywhere in the world either during or after the term of this Agreement.

In addition, either Party may terminate this Agreement for any reason or no reason upon thirty (30) days’ written notice to the other Party. This Agreement will automatically terminate if Atlassian’s applicable reseller agreement with Carahsoft terminates or expires.

11.10 Dispute Resolution; Arbitration. In the event of any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the Parties hereto shall consult and negotiate with each other and, recognizing their mutual interests, attempt to reach a solution satisfactory to both Parties.

The Parties shall seek to mutually appoint an arbitrator. If the Parties cannot agree on a single arbitrator, then there shall be three (3) arbitrators: one selected by each Party, and a third selected by the first two. Arbitration will take place in one of the following cities as mutually agreed between the Parties: Sydney (Australia), Amsterdam (Netherlands) or San Francisco, CA (USA). If the Parties are unable to agree to one of these cities, then the arbitration shall proceed in San Francisco, CA (USA). All negotiations and arbitration proceedings pursuant to this Section 11.10 will be confidential and treated as compromise and settlement negotiations for purposes of all similar rules and codes of evidence of applicable legislation and jurisdictions. The language of the arbitration shall be English. Notwithstanding the provisions of this Section 11.10, nothing in this Agreement shall prevent either Party from seeking injunctive relief with respect to a violation of intellectual property rights, confidentiality obligations or enforcement or recognition of any award or order in any appropriate jurisdiction.
11.11 Governing Law; Jurisdiction. This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the applicable laws of the State of California, USA, without giving effect to the principles of that State relating to conflicts of laws. Each Party irrevocably agrees that any legal action, suit or proceeding that is not otherwise subject to the arbitration provisions of Section 11.10 (Dispute Resolution; Arbitration) must be brought solely and exclusively in, and will be subject to the service of process and other applicable procedural rules of, the State or Federal court in San Francisco, California, USA, and each Party irrevocably submits to the sole and exclusive personal jurisdiction of the courts in San Francisco, California, USA, generally and unconditionally, with respect to any action, suit or proceeding brought by it or against it by the other Party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Atlassian may bring a claim for equitable relief in any court with proper jurisdiction. The terms of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the Sale of Goods do not apply to this Agreement.
