Terms of Service
Last revised: January 2021
Acceptance of Terms. This website (the “Site”) is provided by Cognyte Software Ltd. (collectively with its subsidiaries, “Cognyte,” “we,” “us,”). You must be at least 18 years old to use this site. Please read these Terms of Service (the “Terms”) carefully because they are a binding agreement between you and Cognyte. You agree that by registering with, or by using the Site, you are entering into a legally binding agreement with us based on these Terms, including other information provided as part of the Site. If you are using the Site on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you are nevertheless bound by these Terms. We may update the Terms from time to time in our sole discretion by posting a revised version of the Terms. If we do so, we will post a “Last Revised” legend at the top of the Terms so you can determine if any changes have been made. If you do not agree to these Terms, please do not use the site.
The Terms apply to the entirety of any website to which they attach, and all Cognyte sub-sites accessed from such sites (collectively, the “Site“). Some areas of the Site (for example our password protected Communities) or Services may have additional rules, guidelines, license agreements, user agreements or other terms and conditions that apply to your access or use of that area of the Site or Services. If there is a conflict or inconsistency between these Terms and the rules, guidelines, license agreement, user agreement, or other terms and conditions for a specific area of the Site or for specific Services (including Content), the latter shall have precedence with respect to your access and use of that area of the Site or Service. In the event you have a separate agreement with Cognyte governing the use of those specific areas of the Site or for those specific Services, notwithstanding the foregoing, that separate agreement will continue to govern and control your use.
Description of the Content and Services. Cognyte provides you with access to certain content concerning Cognyte and its products and services, including descriptions, contact information, links, and other specialized content (collectively, the “Content“), as well as opportunities to contact Cognyte or third parties, and other features and services (all of the foregoing, collectively with the Content, the “Services“). All new Content, Services, or features made available through the Site that were not made available as of the “Last Revised” date above, shall automatically become subject to this Agreement.
As part of the registration process for certain Services, you will be asked to select a username and password. We may refuse registration to anyone, and/or require additional information prior to accepting any registration, in our sole discretion. Furthermore, we may refuse to grant you a username that impersonates someone else, is or may be illegal, is or may be protected by trademark or other proprietary rights law, is vulgar or otherwise offensive, or may cause confusion, as determined by us in our sole discretion. You will be responsible for the confidentiality and use of your username and password and agree not to transfer or resell your use of or access to the Services or any part of the Content to any third party. If you have reason to believe that your account with us is no longer secure, you must immediately notify us of the problem by emailing us at info@Cognyte.com. YOU ARE ENTIRELY RESPONSIBLE FOR MAINTAINING THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF YOUR USERNAME AND PASSWORD AND FOR ANY AND ALL ACTIVITIES THAT ARE CONDUCTED THROUGH YOUR ACCOUNT.
The Site may include inaccuracies or errors, or materials that violate or conflict with these Terms. Additionally, third parties may make unauthorized alterations to the Site. If you become aware of such a situation, please contact us at info@Cognyte.com with a description of the material(s) at issue, and the location (“URL”) where such material(s) appear.

Cognyte has no control over the sites that provide links to the Site, and you acknowledge and agree that Cognyte does not endorse such sites and is not responsible for any links from those sites to the Site, for any content, advertising, products, or other materials available on or through such other sites, or for any loss or damages caused by using or relying on any such materials. You further acknowledge and agree that Cognyte shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to have been caused by or in connection with the use of or inability to use: (a) any sites or resources to which Cognyte provides links, or that provide links to the Site; or (b) any content, goods, or services available on or through any such sites or resources. Cognyte shall have the right, but not the obligation, at any time and in its sole discretion, to block links to the Site through technological or other means, without prior notice. Additionally, you agree that Cognyte shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred in connection with any dealings with any third-party which you may encounter as a result of using the Site or as the result of the presence of such third parties’ materials on the Site.

Disclosure Regarding Forward Looking Statements.

Statements appearing on the Site that concern Cognyte, its affiliated companies, or it and their management and that are not historical facts are “Forward-Looking Statements“. These Forward-Looking Statements are not guarantees of future performance and they are based on management’s expectations and beliefs in light of the information currently available to it, and involve a number of known and unknown risks, uncertainties, assumptions, and other important factors, any of which could cause Cognyte’s actual results or conditions to differ materially from those expressed in or implied by these Forward-Looking Statements. Cognyte is a publicly traded Delaware corporation and it files quarterly and annual reports with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) in Washington, D.C.
Jurisdictional. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the substantive laws of the State of New York, without regard to its conflicts of law principles, and shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of competent courts in New York, New York. The parties agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the United Nations Convention on the Limitation Period in the International Sale of Goods shall not apply in any respect to this Agreement. The Site is controlled and operated by Cognyte from its principal office in the State of New York, U.S.A., and is not intended to subject Cognyte to the laws or jurisdiction of any state, country, or territory other than the State of New York and the United States of America.

Any provisional or equitable remedy available from a court of law shall be available from the arbitrators. The parties consent to the jurisdiction of the courts of the State of New York or to any Federal Court located within such State for any action to compel arbitration or enforce the award of the arbitrator and to service of process therein by registered mail, return receipt requested, or by any other means provided by law. The award of the arbitrator may be entered or judicially accepted and shall be enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Miscellaneous. This Agreement does not, and shall not be construed to, create any partnership, joint venture, employer-employee, agency, or franchisor-franchisee relationship between the parties hereto. If any provision of this Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction or arbitrator to be illegal, void, or unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be modified so as to render it enforceable and effective to the maximum extent possible in order to effect the intention of the provision; and if a court or arbitrator finds the modified provision invalid, illegal, void, or unenforceable, the validity, legality, and enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement will not be affected in any way. You may not assign, sublicense, or otherwise transfer any or all of your rights or obligations under this Agreement without Cognyte’s prior express written consent. No waiver by either party of any breach or default hereunder will be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default.
