数据科学企业专业服务 条款和条件

NVIDIA Corporation or a designated subsidiary of NVIDIA Corporation (as applicable, “NVIDIA”) agrees to provide support services for designated NVIDIA products on a time and materials basis (“Professional Services”) to the customer (“you”) upon purchase from NVIDIA or a NVIDIA authorized reseller (“Reseller”).  

 

SERVICES 

 

“Product” means NVIDIA hardware, NVIDIA licensed software, NVIDIA cloud services or other NVIDIA assets that NVIDIA agrees to support as described below. As examples of NVIDIA product families: NVIDIA DGX products, Jetson products, RTX Server products, and NVIDIA SDKs. NVIDIA will maintain the list of Products for which Professional Services are available and update the list from time to time.

 

When you purchase Professional Services, the corresponding SKU will indicate the service limitations, including (without limitation) the Product(s) and maximum support time period. 

 

The reference to “1 day” in a SKU means up to eight (8) hours of services, the reference to “1 week” in a SKU means up to forty (40) hours of service, or the SKU may indicate the maximum number of hours of services. Services are provided during NVIDIA’s regular business hours, and exclude weekends and NVIDIA observed holidays.

 

NVIDIA may allocate one or more individuals to deliver the hours of services. If a Professional Service is for 1 day of services, NVIDIA may, by way of example, allocate two individuals to work for up to four (4) hours or allocate one individual to work for up to eight (8) hours depending on the services to be provided.

 

Professional Services may include one or more of the following services for a designated NVIDIA product:  analysis and assessment, training, implementation, code profiling and optimization, benchmarking, workload migration, or other services agreed by the parties. Prior to purchasing Professional Services, the date and location must be confirmed by NVIDIA, if applicable. If re-scheduling is requested by either party, the parties will cooperate to timely select a new date and location subject to availability as applicable. 

 

The services under these terms and conditions are provided on a time and materials basis without commitment to any specific results.  Professional Services not redeemed or utilized within six months of the purchase order acknowledgement from NVIDIA are automatically terminated, and no credit or refund is provided.

 

Professional Services are either delivered directly by NVIDIA or by a NVIDIA authorized service provider. 

 

Professional Services are available to select parties upon approval from NVIDIA at NVIDIA’s discretion, in limited quantities based on availability of personnel, and in limited geographical locations as updated by NVIDIA from time to time in its sole discretion. 

 

Professional Services are add-on services, and only Products that are under a valid support contract with NVIDIA purchased separately qualify for Professional Services. No credits or refunds will be provided for any gaps in the provision of Professional Services under these terms and conditions if the related support expires or terminates.

 

Professional Services are non-transferable, non-assignable and your services are terminated (in whole or in part) when the Product(s) under management are transferred to another party.

 

WHAT THESE SERVICES DO NOT COVER   

 

Professional Services fees include remote services, or in limited instances as agreed with NVIDIA on-site services, provided that on-site services assume up to 30 minutes of travel time each way. If additional travel is involved, NVIDIA will inform you in advance and the additional cost will be separately invoiced after incurred.

 

NVIDIA hardware, licensed software, cloud services or assets shall be separately obtained, and Professional Services are for related services only. You agree to provide access to resources and materials reasonably required by NVIDIA or its authorized service provider to deliver Professional Services, including, without limitation, access via the internet or via direct modem or VPN connection to relevant servers, access to your facilities for requested on-site visits, and/or access to, and assistance of, your personnel. 

 

NVIDIA and its authorized service providers shall be excused from performing any of its obligations hereunder to the extent any such non-performance is attributable to your failure to perform your obligations under these terms and conditions, including but not limited to your obligation to provide timely payment for such Professional Services.

 

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

 

No transfer of ownership of any intellectual property will occur under these terms and conditions. NVIDIA does not provide as part of Professional Services joint development services, nor performs work for hire. You grant NVIDIA a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free right and license to any intellectual property that is necessary for NVIDIA and its designees to perform the Professional Services. NVIDIA confidential information provided as part of Professional Service is subject to confidentiality obligations.
