Schedule - Additional Terms for Certain Services

The following additional terms apply:

CodeScan License Compliance Management

CodeScan License Compliance Management is the function of the Services which enables you to create sets of rules that can be applied in respect of License Information applicable to the Protected Asset. "License Information" means the license information identified by the Services as being associated by the CodeScan License Compliance Management with any dependency in or content of the Protected Asset.

You acknowledge and agree that:

  • License Information is obtained by CodeScan from the licensor of the relevant software reviewed using CodeScan License Compliance Management, or the code repository by means of which that software is made available;
  • No warranty or representation of any kind is made by CodeScan as to the accuracy or completeness of License Information, or the availability of License Information for any Protected Asset, and that License Information is made available ‘as is’ at your own risk;
  • You are responsible for determining the extent to which certain license types present a legal or commercial risk to you, including any risk posed by a ‘copyleft’ or reciprocity requirement in any license, and configuring the CodeScan License Compliance Management accordingly; and
  • You are responsible for setting your own severities or permissions by means of CodeScan License Compliance Management, and any sample or default license policy made available for use by CodeScan is solely for information purposes and not intended as legal advice or advice applicable to your own circumstances and risk assessments.

CodeScan Infrastructure as Code

CodeScan Infrastructure as Code is a function which enables you to scan configuration files and settings associated with Protected Asset and set and manage preferences. "IaC Information" is information regarding configuration associated with the Protected Asset, produced by means of CodeScan Infrastructure as Code.

You acknowledge that:

  • No warranty or representation of any kind is made by CodeScan as to the accuracy or completeness of, or the availability of IaC Information for any Protected Asset, and that IaC Information is made available ‘as is’ at your own risk;

You may use the API during the Term, solely for the purposes of your use of the Services for your internal business operations. No warranty or representation is made as to the API’s continued availability, or its compatibility with any software or technical protocols or standards.

The API is intended to be used as an interface between the Platform and an external application or repository operated and controlled by you. CodeScan may rate-limit, throttle or otherwise restrict API use to prevent what it considers (in its absolute discretion) to be abuse, security issues or excessive use. CodeScan shall use reasonable endeavours when applying such restriction to return a descriptive error message, but the nature of the restriction may make this impractical.

CodeScan’s CLI tool reports to CodeScan an event for each command you issue, including, but not limited to, the version of the CLI tool, the versions of surrounding tools such as Node, Maven, Bundler and npm, the organization ID, the arguments and inputs provided to the CLI, and details about duration, success and failure of CLI actions. This information is used by CodeScan for analytical purposes and to improve the Services. It allows CodeScan to better understand how the CLI tool is used, and informs CodeScan’s product development decisions.

You hereby agree to CodeScan’s collection and use of data as described in this section. You may opt out of this by setting the disable-analytics configuration item, as explained in the FAQ page at (or such other web address notified by CodeScan to the Licensee from time to time).

The CLI tool is distributed under Apache version 2.0 open source software license ( Use of the CLI tool is subject to the terms of that license and is not subject to the restrictions in sections 2 and 4 of the main body of this Agreement.
