Customer agrees that it will not submit the following types of information to the Cloud Services except with HashiCorp’s prior written approval: government-issued identification numbers, consumer financial account information, credit and payment card information, personal health information, or information deemed “sensitive” under applicable law (such as racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, or religious or philosophical beliefs) or personal data (as described in the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data) of data subjects that reside in the European Economic Area (EEA). If Customer wishes to submit any such European personal data to the Cloud Services, Customer will notify HashiCorp and the parties may enter into a separate data processing agreement (including the European Commission’s Standard Contract Clauses for the transfer of personal data to processors established in third countries which do not ensure an adequate level of data protection) with HashiCorp prior to submission of such personal data to the Cloud Services. Customer represents and warrants that it has obtained all necessary consents and permissions from data subjects for the submission and processing of personal data in the Cloud Services.

10.4 Non-waiver. Any failure of either Party to insist upon or enforce performance by the other Party of any of the provisions of this Agreement or to exercise any rights or remedies under this Agreement will not be interpreted or construed as a waiver or relinquishment of such Party's right to assert or rely upon such provision, right or remedy in that or any other instance.
10.5 Governing Law.

Neither Party has any right or authority to assume or create any obligations or to make any representations or warranties on behalf of any other Party, whether express or implied, or to bind the other Party in any respect whatsoever. Each Party may identify the other as a customer or supplier, as applicable.

Any preprinted terms on any Customer ordering documents or terms referenced or linked therein will have no effect on the terms of this Agreement and are hereby rejected, including where such Customer ordering document is signed by HashiCorp. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, which taken together form one binding legal instrument. The Parties hereby consent to the use of electronic signatures in connection with the execution of this Agreement, and further agree that electronic signatures to this Agreement will be legally binding with the same force and effect as manually executed signatures.
