These TD Terms may be modified, supplemented or updated by Infoblox from time to time. Any term not defined in these TD Terms shall have the meaning ascribed to it in the Cloud Services Addendum or the main agreement that governs Customer’s purchase and use of the Products and Services (the “Master Purchasing Agreement”). For purposes of these TD Terms, the Cloud Services Addendum and the Master Purchasing Agreement are collectively referred to as the “Agreement.”

Subject to the terms of the Agreement and these TD Terms, Infoblox grants to Customer, during the Term, the right and license to access and use the B1TD Service in accordance with the online help files and other content relating to use of the B1TD Service published by Infoblox (the “Documentation”), solely for Customer’s internal use to protect Customer’s own networks, which includes use by Customer’s Authorized Users. Infoblox reserves the right to modify the features, functionality, and other aspects of the B1TD Service and the TD Terms from time to time, provided that Infoblox will not modify the B1TD Service or the TD Terms in a manner that would have a significant adverse effect on Customer’s use of the B1TD Service without providing reasonable advance notice to Customer.

All rights and licenses granted herein are non-exclusive and, except as permitted herein, non-assignable and non-sublicensable. All other rights in the B1TD Service are expressly reserved by Infoblox.

Customer’s use of the SANDBOX Service is conditioned upon Customer having an authorized license for the B1TD Service. All other rights in the SANDBOX Service are expressly reserved by Infoblox.


Infoblox will provide support for the Services herein to Customer during the Term in accordance with the support services set forth herein as Exhibit A (Support Terms) and the support guidelines set forth in the Documentation. Infoblox will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide the B1TD Service in accordance with the availability service levels and target response times set forth in Exhibit A-1 and Exhibit A-2, respectively. Except for the service level remedies and target response times for B1TD Service set forth in Exhibit A-1 and Exhibit A-2, Infoblox does not guarantee or warrant that the Services herein, as well as the applicable support, will be available for any particular time or during any particular period. Infoblox will use commercially reasonable efforts to make the SANDBOX Service available to Customer during Customer’s normal business hours. For abundance of clarity, the service level remedies and target response times specified in Exhibit A-1 and Exhibit A-2 do not apply to the SANDBOX Service. Infoblox will not be liable for any unavailability or latency caused by third-party hosting services or internet carriers or other problems inherent in the use of the internet or electronic communications.

Infoblox may use third party hosting services to provide the Service. Infoblox and its hosting service providers have implemented commercially reasonable, industry-standard technical and organizational measures designed to secure Customer Information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure. In order to provide the Service, Customer agrees that Infoblox shall have the right to use, reproduce, transmit, store, modify, and display the Customer Information, and to permit Infoblox’s hosting service providers to exercise such rights as necessary to provide services to Infoblox in support of the Service.

When a customer makes a request for deletion of personal data stored by Infoblox, Infoblox will purge or anonymize the requested data from its systems to the extent required by applicable law and/or contract and may retain administrative data required for legitimate business purposes. Infoblox only keeps personal data for as long as it has an ongoing legitimate business need to do so.

During the Term, Infoblox may audit Customer’s use of Services herein to determine if the usage remains within the purchased Licensed Capacity or Allowable Usage level, as applicable. If the audit shows that Customer has exceeded the Licensed Capacity for B1TD Service, Customer must purchase new licenses for additional capacity to remain in compliance with these TD Terms. Customer’s use in excess of the Licensed Capacity or Allowable Usage level may result in additional license fees.

BloxOne® Threat Defense Advanced and On-Prem offerings are subject to a maximum average monthly DNS query limit of 3,500 DNS queries per Protected User per day. Usage of B1TD Service is continuously monitored to determine a customer’s average monthly DNS Queries. The monthly DNS Query average is calculated based on the number of DNS Queries for any particular month (the number of days in that month) divided by the Customer’s Licensed Capacity. Infoblox may work with each Customer when their usage exceeds the current Licensed Capacity. If Customer’s usage cannot be modified to align to the current Licensed Capacity, then Customer will need to purchase additional Licensed Capacity to ensure query limits are within the license terms.


At the end of each Term, Infoblox will send Customer a notice of renewal at the fees stated in the renewal offer. If Customer does not timely renew, the Term will expire and Customer will lose access to the applicable Service herein. Should Customer choose to renew, Customer may be invoiced by Infoblox or by the Authorized Reseller from whom Customer ordered the prior Term. These TD Terms shall remain effective during the Term. Notwithstanding the foregoing, these TD Terms and the applicable Service may be terminated by either party in accordance with the Agreement. For a period of thirty (30) calendar days following termination of these TD Terms, Customer may retrieve Customer Information stored by Infoblox in connection with the applicable Service; after such time Infoblox may disable access to and delete the Customer Information. The provisions of these TD Terms which by their nature should survive termination, shall survive the expiration or termination of these TD Terms.

Support includes access to Infoblox’s customer support portal with online user guides, articles and materials. Support is available in English and includes assistance with questions related to Product features, troubleshooting or issue diagnosis, configuration, and Workarounds, when applicable.

(c) Installation. An implementation plan is essential for successful installation of Products. Support does not include configuration or assistance with implementation planning or installation of Products. If Customer requires assistance to support successful installation of Products, Infoblox professional services may be separately purchased.

(d) Authorized Customer Support Contacts. Customer will designate the individuals that are authorized to contact Infoblox on behalf of Customer to receive Support (“Authorized Contacts”). The Authorized Contacts may contact an Infoblox Global Support Center (“GSC”) by logging into Infoblox’s support website or by telephone.

Infoblox’s obligation to provide Support does not include services requested as a result of causes or errors which are not attributable to Infoblox.

(a) “Workaround” means a temporary solution to a Software error that Infoblox has implemented or enabled customers to implement that allows the Software to regain functionality or provide Software functions in accordance with the Documentation.

Exhibit A-1
Service Availability and Service Credits for B1TD Service

1. Service Credits. “Service Credit” means an extension of the Term by the number of days set forth in Section 2 (Service Availability) below for failing to meet the stated availability levels for serving DNS queries. Service Credits shall be Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy for Service Availability failures. In order to be eligible for a Service Credit, Customer must: (i) be current on fees due for the B1TD Service; and (ii) request a Service Credit via a support ticket submitted to Infoblox Support within ten (10) business days after the outage giving rise to the Service Credit. Requests for Service Credits must include a description of the outage with dates and times of unavailability. For each request submitted by Customer, Infoblox will research the incident(s) to determine if the Service Availability was not met in accordance with the requirements below, and provide a response to Customer no later than ten (10) business days after the end of the month in which the request occurred. Failure by Customer to comply with these requirements will result in forfeiture of Customer’s right to receive a Service Credit for the incident.

In order for the stated availability to apply, Customer’s network must be properly configured on a 24 X 7 X 365 basis in accordance with the Documentation and in a manner that allows Customer to take advantage of Infoblox’s redundant global infrastructure made available as part of the B1TD Service.

2. Service Availability. During the Term, Infoblox will use commercially reasonable efforts to make the DNS query services available at least 99.99% of the time during each calendar month (the “Service Availability”). If DNS query Service Availability is less than 99.99% for a calendar month, Infoblox will provide the Service Credit indicated below based on the availability confirmed by Infoblox for the month. Calculation of availability excludes scheduled maintenance times published by Infoblox and other exclusions described in Section 4 below. Failure to meet DNS query Service availability results in a Service Credit as follows:

DNS Query Service Availability During a MonthService Credit
> = 99.99%0
< 99.99% but > = 99.9%1 day
< 99.9% but > = 99%5 days
< 99% but > = 98%10 days
< 98%20 days

3. Maximum Service Credits. The aggregate maximum Service Credits that Infoblox will issue for failing to meet Service Availability during any twelve (12) month Term will not exceed 30 calendar days’ worth of the B1TD Service.

4. Exclusions. The service availability metrics above do not apply to (and calculations of availability exclude) any: (a) services or features designated by lnfoblox as pre-release, alpha, beta or similar non-GA designation; (b) aspects or functionality of the B1TD Service other than those required for serving DNS queries; (c) periods of unavailability or latency caused by third party hosting services or internet carriers; or (d) errors: (i) caused by factors outside of Infoblox’s reasonable control, including any Force Majeure event, denial-of-service attack or Internet access or related problems beyond the demarcation point of the B1TD Service; (ii) that resulted from any actions or inactions of Customer or any third-party; (iii) that resulted from Customer’s equipment, software or other technology and/or third party equipment, software or other technology (other than third-party equipment within Infoblox’s direct control); (iv) arising from the suspension and termination of Customer’s right to use the B1TD Service in accordance with the TD Terms; or (v) that resulted from exceeding usage limits/quotas applied by the system and/or listed in the Documentation. Infoblox reserves the right to fully investigate any claim of unavailability and Service Credit request prior to issuing a Service Credit in accordance with this Exhibit A-1.
