Marketplace Vendor Terms and Conditions
These AxleMarketplace Terms and Conditions (“Terms”) are entered into between Axlerate, LLC, including its affiliates (collectively, “Axlerate”), and you and your company (“Vendor”, “you”, or “your”). These Terms apply to Vendor’s publication of information regarding Vendor’s software, data, media, service, product, Add-On, or other offering (“Vendor Offering”) and product information and images regarding your Vendor Offering (“Listing Information”) on the site maintained by AxleMarketplace where it provides information about certain third-party offerings (“AxleMarketplace”).
By submitting your Vendor Offering to AxleMarketplace for publication on the AxleMarketplace you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind Vendor to these Terms and agree to bind Vendor to these Terms.
- Submission, Approval, and Publication of Vendor Offerings
(a) Submission Process.
In order to participate in the AxleMarketplace, the Vendor must submit a request in the form required by Axlerate. The requirements for each submission are set forth in our current publishing guidelines (“AxleMarketplace Publishing Guidelines”) located here: which AxleMarketplace may update from time to time in its sole discretion. The AxleMarketplace Publishing Guidelines include minimum requirements for Vendors and Vendor Offerings to be included in the AxleMarketplace. Vendors may be required to create an account on a publishing portal (“Vendor Portal”) in order to manage the submission process. If AxleMarketplace approves the Vendor Offering for inclusion on the AxleMarketplace, Axlerate may publish the Vendor Offering on the AxleMarketplace, subject to the terms and conditions of these Terms. AxleMarketplace reserves the right to reject any Vendor application for any or no reason. The Vendor is responsible for ensuring that the Listing Information associated with its Vendor Offering is accurate and up to date at all times.
(b) Presentation of Vendor Offerings.
Axlerate reserves the right to determine the manner in which Vendor Offerings, Listing Information, and any other information intended to inform AxleMarketplace users about a Vendor Offering, is presented and promoted in the AxleMarketplace. “Vendor Offerings” may include Axlerate 1-Click Apps (also known as One-Click applications), which are pre-built virtual machine images and/or Kubernetes configurations that automate common set-up steps for users including package installation, firewall rules, and software configuration, and may also include new types of listings as determined in the future in Axlerate’s sole discretion. During the term of these Terms, the Vendor grants Axlerate a limited, nonexclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, fully paid-up right and license under all of the Vendor’s intellectual property rights in and to the Listing Information and Vendor Offerings to use, reproduce, translate into any language, and display the Listing Information and Vendor Offerings on the AxleMarketplace. AxleMarketplace shall have no obligations to post, maintain, ensure the accuracy of or otherwise manage or handle the Listing Information or Vendor Offerings.
(c) License to Vendor Marks.
During the term of these Terms, the Vendor grants Axlerate a non-exclusive, royalty-free, fully paid up, worldwide right and license right and license under all of Vendor’s intellectual property rights in and to the Vendor Marks to use, reproduce and display Vendor’s trademarks and logos (“Vendor Marks”) as provided to Axlerate, in connection with the marketing and promotion of the Vendor Offerings in the AxleMarketplace. Axlerate may reformat or resize Vendor Marks for publishing on the AxleMarketplace provided that it does not materially alter the overall appearance of the Vendor Marks. Axlerate will stop using the Vendor Marks upon termination of Vendor’s participation on the AxleMarketplace.
- The Vendor will implement and maintain reasonable security measures to prevent unauthorized access to the Vendor Offerings. Such measures will in no event be less stringent than those used to safeguard Vendor’s own property. Such measures will include, where appropriate, use of updated firewalls, virus screening software, logon identification and passwords, encryption, intrusion detection systems, logging of incidents, periodic reporting, and prompt application of current security patches, virus definitions and other updates. AxleMarketplace reserves the right to terminate these Terms, in its sole discretion and without limitation or termination liability, if Axlerate reasonably determines that the Vendor fails to meet its obligations under this Section or if the areas of non-compliance are such that the security of the Vendor Offering is insufficient.
- If at any time the Vendor determines that any unlawful or unauthorized access, use or disclosure of the systems and/or confidential information of Vendor, its customers or AxleMarketplace (“Data Security Breach”) may have or has occurred, the Vendor will promptly notify AxleMarketplace of such Data Security Breach and investigate such Data Security Breach. The Vendor will use reasonable efforts to notify AxleMarketplace of a Data Security Breach within eight (8) hours after the Vendor reasonably believes that there has been a Data Security Breach, but in no event more than twenty four (24) hours after such belief. Notwithstanding the written notice provision set forth in Section 8(i), all notices to AxleMarketplace required under this Section in connection with a Data Security Breach will be made by email to [email protected]. Subject to applicable laws and regulations, any decision to notify a third party or parties of a Data Security Breach will be made by AxleMarketplace in its sole discretion. Upon AxleMarketplace’s request, the Vendor will reasonably cooperate with AxleMarketplace and its third-party service providers in conducting an investigation of the Data Security Breach, which may include providing Axlerate and its third-party service providers with access to the Vendor Offerings and their underlying systems, network, servers and applications affected by the Data Security Breach.
iii. Any password AxleMarketplace provides to the Vendor may be used only during the term to access and use the Axlerate Marketplace as permitted under these Terms. The Vendor is solely responsible for maintaining the security of its password. The Vendor may not disclose its password to any third party (other than third parties authorized by the Vendor to use the Vendor’s account in accordance with these Terms) and is solely responsible for any use of or action taken under its password. If the Vendor’s password is compromised, the Vendor must immediately change its password.
(e) Rights Reserved. Except for the license rights granted in these Terms: (i) the Vendor retains all rights in the Listing Information and Vendor Offering; and (ii) each party retains all rights it would have independent of these Terms. AxleMarketplace does not obtain any right, title or interest from Vendor under these Terms in or to the Listing Information and Vendor Offering. The Vendor agrees that it is solely responsible for protecting and enforcing its rights in the Listing Information, Vendor Offering and the Vendor Marks and that Axlerate has no obligation to do so on the Vendor’s behalf.
- Licensing and Support of Vendor Offerings
The AxleMarketplace is a forum for display of Listing Information regarding Vendor Offerings.

Such licenses, end user license agreements (EULAs) and other agreements (in whatever form) will be between the Vendor and Customers.

In the event of such a requirement or request, Recipient shall give Discloser prompt written notice of such requirement or request prior to disclosure and, to the extent feasible, give the Discloser a reasonable opportunity to review and comment upon the disclosure and request confidential treatment or a protective order pertaining thereto prior to making such disclosure.
(d) Destruction. Upon Discloser’s written request at any time, Recipient shall return or destroy Discloser’s Confidential Information and any copies or extracts thereof. Upon Discloser’s request, Recipient will provide Discloser with written confirmation of such return or destruction in compliance with this provision.
