(“Netskope”) which includes the supply of Netskope hardware for use with Netskope subscriptions (“Hardware”) as identified on the applicable purchase order accepted by Netskope (the “Order”).
These Hardware Terms are subject to the terms of the Netskope Subscription Services Agreement available at https://www.netskope.com/subscription-terms. Capitalized terms used but not defined in these Hardware Terms will have the meaning assigned to them in the Netskope Subscription Services Agreement. Unless expressly stated otherwise below, in the event of any inconsistency or conflict between the Netskope Subscription Services Agreement and the terms of these Hardware Terms, the Netskope Subscription Services Agreement will prevail. If Customer and Netskope have signed a separate written agreement applicable to supply of the hardware and hardware support, then the terms of the signed agreement shall apply and control with respect to the hardware and hardware support provided under such agreement.
I. Shipment, Delivery and Title. Netskope will provide an estimated shipment date to Customer identified in the Order in accordance with requested shipment dates on the Order. Any shipment or delivery dates indicated by Netskope are estimates only and subject to change. Netskope will endeavor to provide notice of any change to the shipping date at least one week before the initial estimated delivery date. All Hardware is delivered Ex Works (Incoterms® 2020) at Netskope’s depot in California.

Prices for Hardware and Software do not include shipping, insurance, handling, sales, use, value added (VAT), excise, export, withholding or similar taxes or fees, which are the responsibility of the buyer. If Netskope is required to collect any sales, use, VAT or similar taxes from Customer, such taxes will be invoiced to the buyer as a separate line item. If the buyer does not designate a carrier account for shipment, Netskope will ship the Hardware using Netskope’s standard methods and invoice the buyer for shipping at Netskope’s standard rates. All shipping and delivery dates are estimates only. Netskope shall not be liable for any delays in shipping or delivery. Customer must notify Netskope in writing within thirty (30) days of receiving the Hardware if Customer believes any part of the Hardware shipment received is missing or incorrect.

Customer must return nonconforming Hardware or place such Hardware for disposal as directed by Netskope. Upon receipt of returned Hardware (if applicable) and confirmation of non-conformity, Netskope shall use commercially reasonable efforts to provide a conforming replacement shipment within a reasonable period which may include replacing the Hardware with the same or similar Hardware of at least equivalent functionality.

Customer must promptly return the defective Hardware unit (as identified by serial number to Netskope at the time RMA is issued) to Netskope in accordance with Netskope’s return instructions provided at the time of RMA issuance (including using the packaging and shipment label supplied by Netskope for the RMA), or place the Hardware for disposal if directed by Netskope. Customer must clearly mark the RMA number on the outside of the return package for returned units. Netskope may refuse delivery and return to sender at sender’s expense any unauthorized returns that do not include an RMA number. If return is required and the defective Hardware is not received by Netskope within 45 days after Netskope’s shipment of the replacement unit, Netskope may invoice the Customer and Customer shall pay for the defective Hardware at the then current list price less any applicable discount; nonpayment may result in suspension of support and replacement services.
