PROFESSIONAL SERVICES TERMS

A. Definition and Scope. “Professional Services” means professional and advisory services provided by  Confluent as specific engagements pursuant to an applicable Order. Professional Services are provided  for knowledge transfer purposes only; therefore: (a) the provision of any specific deliverables is not a  condition of payment under the Order; and (b) any Services Materials (defined below) provided will not  be subject to acceptance testing or other acceptance process. 

B. Services Materials. Except for the license granted to Customer in the following sentence, Customer  acknowledges and agrees that Confluent or its licensors own and shall retain all rights, title and interest,  including but not limited to all patent, copyright, trade secret, know-how, design rights, trademark, and  other intellectual property rights, in and to any and all materials provided to Customer in the course of  the Professional Services (the “Services Materials”). Subject to the payment of the Professional Services  Fees, Confluent grants to Customer a limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, non-transferable  (except as expressly stated otherwise in the Agreement) license to use the Services Materials solely in  connection with Customer’s use of Confluent Platform, Confluent Software, or Cloud Service for  Customer’s own business operations. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, Confluent and  its personnel shall be free to use and employ its and their general skills, know-how, and expertise, and  to use, disclose, and employ any generalized ideas, concepts, know-how, methods, techniques, or skills  gained or learned during the course of performing Services hereunder. Notwithstanding any failure to  so designate them, the Services Materials shall be Confluent’s Confidential Information.

D. Scheduling. For each Professional Services engagement, Professional Services will begin on a date  mutually agreed by Customer and Confluent, and will be scheduled on an engagement basis in  increments no less than one (1) eight (8)-hour day. All Professional Services must be scheduled and  delivered within one year of the Order Effective Date. Professional Services engagements may be  rescheduled subject to Confluent’s availability and as agreed by Confluent in writing, provided that  Customer requests such changes at least thirty (30) days prior to the agreed upon engagement date.  Scheduled engagements are not cancellable, and Customer will remain responsible for all Fees for such  engagements. If causes outside of either party’s reasonable control requires that an engagement be  rescheduled, Confluent and Customer will agree in good faith on a mutually acceptable rescheduled  date.  

E. Location and Connectivity. Professional Services will be provided virtually, at Customer’s location  specified in the Order, or such other location mutually agreed in writing. For Professional Services, Confluent will make remote conferencing arrangements through a provider of Confluent’s choice.  Confluent will make reasonable efforts to accommodate requests for alternative remote conferencing  arrangements with advance notice.  

EDUCATION SERVICES TERMS 

F. Definitions. “Education Services” means Confluent’s educational and training Courses delivered either  by an instructor (in person or online) or as a self-paced online Course. “Course” means a specific training  engagement, session or module.  

G. Course Materials. Confluent has developed certain proprietary education and training materials relating  to the Courses (the “Course Materials”). Except for the license granted to Customer in the following  sentence, Customer acknowledges and agrees that Confluent or its licensors own and shall retain all  rights, title and interest, including but not limited to all patent, copyright, trade secret, know-how,  design rights, trademark, and other intellectual property rights, in and to the Course Materials. Subject  to the payment of the Education Services Fees, Confluent grants to Customer a limited, non-exclusive,  non-sublicensable, non-transferable (except as expressly stated otherwise in the Agreement) license to  use the Course Materials solely in connection with the Customer’s use of Confluent Platform, Confluent  Software, or Cloud Service for Customer’s own business operations. Customer acknowledges that the  Course Materials may not be reproduced, and Courses may not be recorded in any manner except as  otherwise authorized in writing by Confluent. Copies of Course Materials shall be limited to those  necessary to provide one copy per Attendee of the Course. Attendees shall not make any copies of the  Course Materials other than for their own personal use. Notwithstanding any failure to so designate  them, the Course Materials shall be Confluent’s Confidential Information. Course Materials will be  provided to Attendees electronically and can be downloaded along with cloud-based labs on which  Attendees will perform hands-on exercises. 

H. Confluent Education Subscriptions. Confluent education subscriptions provide access to the specified  number of Named Users (defined below) with access to Confluent’s then-current self-paced training  Courses, for the term specified on the applicable Order, commencing on the effective date of such order.  Confluent reserves the right in its discretion to withdraw or remove any online training Course or  offering at any time. 

1. A “Confluent Education Self-Paced Subscription” provides access to self-paced Courses that  Confluent makes available through its training portal for a specific number of individual users (each  a “Named User”) that are purchased by Customer, for the term specified on the Order and  commencing on the effective date of the order. Confluent Education Subscription includes one (1)  Certification Voucher that may be used for one (1) exam attempt for any currently available  certification. Customers are provided with a license key(s) for registration. Each Named User must  create a username and password, and such login information may not be shared with or used by  other individuals.

Customer is responsible for facilitating access to its SSO to provide users access instructions  and communication. Confluent will provide onboarding instructions to Customer following order  execution. Customer is responsible for working with the Confluent Education onboarding team and  Confluent’s training platform provider to establish Customer SSO connectivity so that users can  access the training Courses.

K. Scheduling

1. Private Courses may be rescheduled subject to Confluent’s availability and as agreed by  Confluent in writing, provided that Customer requests such changes at least fourteen (14) days  prior to the agreed-upon Course date (“Course Date”). Scheduled Course Dates are not  cancellable, and Customer will remain responsible for all Education Services Fees for such  Course. If causes outside of either party’s reasonable control requires that a private Course be  rescheduled, Confluent and Customer will agree in good faith on a mutually acceptable  rescheduled Course date.  

2. For public Courses, Confluent at its discretion may cancel or reschedule any scheduled course if  certain minimum enrollment is not achieved, due to instructor illness, or due to other events  outside of its control. If this occurs, Customer will be notified via email. If a Customer requires  their registration in a Confluent Course to be rescheduled, Customers may request to attend an  alternately scheduled Course via email to education-admin@confluent.io at least fourteen (14) days prior to the start of the Course. Scheduled Course Dates are not cancellable by Customer,  and Customer will remain responsible for all Education Services Fees for such Course. 

L. In-Person Course Logistics. The following terms apply to all Courses not designated by Confluent as “Public.”

1. Location. All Courses are provided virtually unless an Order expressly states that Courses will  be delivered at Customer’s location. For virtual Courses, Confluent will make remote  conferencing arrangements through a provider of Confluent’s choice, and Customer is  responsible for validating connectivity as provided in advance. In the event Customer’s network  blocks access, Confluent will provide one (1) alternate provider of Confluent’s choice on request. Any issues beyond that must be resolved by Customer, or Attendees must connect from a non restricted environment. 

2. Course Attendees. It is highly recommended for attendees to attend and participate all days of  any multiple day Courses. No make-up days will be provided for attendees’ failure to attend any  portion or day of the Courses. Extra attendees, even if designated as observers or other non participating attendees, are not permitted without prior written consent from Confluent  Services management.

3. Remote Attendees. For onsite Courses, if Customer requests any attendees participate  remotely, such remote attendees will count towards the applicable maximum Attendee  limitation. If remote attendees participate in Courses, Confluent will make remote conferencing  arrangements for such remote attendees. Customer must provide Confluent with reasonable  advance notice if Customer will have remote attendees participate in a Course. 

4. Classroom and Equipment Requirements. Detailed requirements for Attendee laptops and  Customer equipment/facilities (for onsite training) are to be provided at the time of scheduling.  All requirements are in alignment with standard industry practices for onsite training (e.g., a  projector and whiteboard). If Customer does not own facilities and equipment that meet the  above requirements, the Customer must rent the required facilities and equipment. Confluent  recommends Customer utilize Confluent to assist with sourcing a qualified training facility.  Confluent has established relationships with vendors who are familiar with the requirements.  All costs, including any cancellation fees associated with such facility and equipment rentals are  the sole responsibility of Customer.
