NVIDIA CUMULUS ENTERPRISE SUPPORT SUPPLEMENT
The terms in this supplement describe the support services that you may obtain directly from NVIDIA for the SOFTWARE licensed under the Agreement above and NVIDIA Cumulus supported software and materials available via NVIDIA Enterprise Support Portal (Enterprise Support Portal) under the terms of your applicable license agreement as modified by this supplement. Capitalized terms used but not defined below shall have the meaning assigned to them in the applicable license.
This supplement is an exhibit to the applicable license and is incorporated as an integral part of the applicable license. In the event of conflict between the terms in this supplement and the terms in the applicable license, the terms in this supplement shall govern.
Scope. If your order indicates that NVIDIA will directly provide Technical Support, Maintenance, Updates and/or Upgrades for your license(s), then, subject to payment of applicable fees, NVIDIA agrees to provide the below services for the Supported Software based on the service subscription purchased during the applicable service term, solely on Certified System(s), and solely for the Supported OSs.
Subject to payment of applicable fees, the services described in this supplement are provided by NVIDIA to you based on the then‐current service subscription plan(s) available for the Supported Software. If you have an agreement with a NVIDIA reseller specifying that a third‐party will deliver the same services described in this supplement for SOFTWARE licensed under the Agreement above and supported software and materials available via Enterprise Support Portal and licensed under the applicable license agreement, this supplement does not apply. NVIDIA may update the scope of services under your service subscription plan and any such modifications are binding on you, provided that such modifications do not single you out.
2.1 Technical Support. If your service subscription to SOFTWARE licensed under the Agreement above and supported software and materials available via Enterprise Support Portal includes Technical Support, subject to payment of applicable fees NVIDIA will make available to you Technical Support for the Supported Software during the service term. You will be permitted to designate in writing to NVIDIA designated users for purposes of obtaining Technical Support. NVIDIA will provide Technical Support to such designated users only via a dedicated support portal. NVIDIA will use commercially reasonable efforts to analyze each potential Technical Support issue to determine if it qualifies for service. NVIDIA shall issue a response to all potential Technical Support issues filed, provided no commitment is made with respect to the specific resolution.
2.2 Maintenance. If your service subscription to SOFTWARE licensed under the Agreement above includes Maintenance subject to payment of applicable fees NVIDIA will make available to you the Maintenance associated with the Supported Software licensed under the Agreement above during the service term.
2.3 Updates. If your service subscription to SOFTWARE licensed under the Agreement above includes Updates, subject to payment of applicable fees NVIDIA will make available to you the Updates associated with the Supported Software licensed under the Agreement above during the service term.
2.4 Upgrades. If your service subscription to SOFTWARE licensed under the Agreement above includes Upgrades, subject to payment of applicable fees NVIDIA will make available to you the Upgrades associated with the Supported Software licensed under the Agreement above during the service term.
2.5 Reinstatement. If you elect not to renew certain service subscriptions and later you desire to re‐enroll, you must pay with respect to the services being reinstated at the then‐current rates: (a) fees for the period between the last expiration of the service subscription and until commencement of the new service subscription, (b) fees for service term of the new service subscription, and (c) any applicable reinstatement fees in addition to fees under (a) and (b). Service subscription re‐enrollment is subject to availability of the service subscription plans at the time of ordering and software version restrictions.
2.6 Requirements and Availability. You shall (a) purchase the initial service subscription for a Supported Software only for the most current generally available version of the Supported Software, and (b) initially purchase and renew service subscriptions for all of your licenses of a Supported Software. The service subscription plans will indicate the types of services (from the above) that are available for Supported Software. NVIDIA is not obligated to provide any services under this supplement for a Supported Software version after the end of support period to its licensees. NVIDIA is not obligated to initiate or renew any service subscription if such service subscription plan is no longer made available by NVIDIA.
Exclusions. NVIDIA does not provide services under this supplement related to:
(a) errors in your own or your licensors’ products that are not due to Errors in the Supported Software;
(b) errors in firmware, software, materials, operating systems, applications, services or data used with the Supported Software;
(c) use of any open‐source software provided within Supported Software, except that NVIDIA may provide you information with respect to known bugs;
(d) modifications to the Supported Software made by you or on your behalf, including customizations NVIDIA agreed to provide you under a consulting service agreement and otherwise not broadly available from NVIDIA NGC, or any modifications made by any third party without NVIDIA’s authorization;
(e) your applications and data, or backing up and restoring them;
(f) interoperability, compatibility or non‐performance issues due to (i) products, software, or options not supported by NVIDIA; (ii) configurations not supported, provided or approved by NVIDIA; (iii) parts intended for one system installed in another system of different make or model; (iv) use of SOFTWARE with non‐NVIDIA hardware; or (v) non‐supported software and materials provided via NVIDIA NGC or malware;
(g) service necessary due to operator error, improper use of the Supported Software or attempted support by unauthorized persons;
(h) use of the Supported Software outside of the scope of the applicable license agreement or documentation; or
(i) to the extent the provision thereof would violate NVIDIA’s obligations to its third‐party licensors and suppliers with respect to such third parties’ intellectual property.
Further, services under this supplement do not include any enhancement(s) or addition(s) to the Supported Software beyond Maintenance, Updates and Upgrades.
Your Responsibilities. In order for NVIDIA to deliver services under this supplement, you agree that:
(a) you are responsible for procuring, installing and maintaining all equipment and obtaining all consents for other software and other hardware necessary to operate the Supported Software;
(b) your failure to deploy a Maintenance, Update or Upgrade available to you as promptly as possible may render the applicable Supported Software non‐operable or non‐conforming to later documentation provided by NVIDIA;
(c) you shall further provide through designated users such information, and/or access to your resources and personnel as NVIDIA may reasonably require for providing services. As examples, as reasonably requested you shall (i) identify the correct version(s) of Supported Software, (ii) provide the documentation and assistance necessary to demonstrate and diagnose each potential Technical Support issue, including providing necessary test cases that NVIDIA can reproduce on a Certified System, (iii) provide remote system access (upon mutual agreement) for NVIDIA to replicate potential Errors, and (iv) provide embedded diagnostic information;

If NVIDIA is required to pay sales, use, property, valueadded or other taxes based on the payments provided in the service subscriptions and if NVIDIA is required to collect and remit such taxes, then such taxes shall be billed to and paid by you or your reseller, unless NVIDIA receives a valid exemption or resale certificate. If you are not billed the applicable tax under the order, then it is your responsibility to properly remit the tax directly to the applicable tax jurisdiction. Further, you acknowledge that the payments to NVIDIA under the service subscriptions shall be made in full without reduction for withholding taxes, if applicable. This section shall not apply to taxes based on NVIDIA’s net income or payroll taxes. All amounts not paid when due will accrue interest (without the requirement of a notice) at the lower of 1.5% per month or the highest rate permissible by law until the unpaid amounts are paid in full.
