2. Use Rights
Subject to your compliance with this Agreement and ongoing payment of all applicable fees, Unity grants to you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, and non-sublicensable license to access and use the DevOps Services as provided in this Agreement solely for your internal use to develop, share, and distribute your Project Content. Any use of the Unity editor (Unity Pro, Unity Plus and Unity Personal) in conjunction with or separate from Services requires a separate, valid agreement between Customer and Unity. No license to use Unity Software is granted or implied by use of DevOps Service or these DevOps Terms.
Except as otherwise set forth in this Section 2, Unity retains all right, title and interest in and to the DevOps Services. Unity reserves all rights not expressly granted to you in these DevOps Terms.
2.1 On-Prem Plastic SCM
The “on-prem” version of Plastic SCM is a software subscription that consists of both server-side and client-side modules. Subject to your compliance with this Agreement and payment of all applicable fees, Unity grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable right during your subscription term to install and execute an “on-prem” version of Plastic SCM solely for your internal use by the number of Users authorized by Unity and so designated in Unity’s systems to develop, share, and distribute your Project Content.
Each subscription to use the on-prem version of Plastic SCM is configured by Unity and may be accessed and used by one (1) User on one (1) computer for the permitted purposes set forth in this Section 2.1. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Plastic SCM client-side module may be installed on a second computer solely for use by the same User assigned that subscription. You may make additional copies of the Plastic SCM client-side and server-side modules as reasonably necessary for your use, provided that the total number of Users does not exceed the total number of Users authorized by Unity and so designated in its systems.
2.2 Your Project Content
By using the DevOps Services, you grant Unity a limited, worldwide, non-exclusive, transferable, sublicensable, irrevocable right to use, store, reproduce, distribute, and transmit your Project Content for the sole purpose of providing and maintaining the DevOps Services. When you provide information about your Project Content, including server URLs, credentials for source control access, application ID, locally-created builds, platform and provisioning files, you authorize Unity to use that for the purpose of providing the DevOps Services to which you subscribe, including for automated polling of files to learn whether files have been updated, to determine if a new build should be initiated, or in connection with addressing support inquiries.
You shall be administratively and financially responsible for obtaining any Consents required for Unity to access, copy, modify, and compile the source code or other materials and tools provided by you, and your Project Content. Any costs associated with obtaining Consents are not included in the fees and are the sole responsibility of you. For clarity, valid Consent for Unity Asset Store content means that you have obtained the appropriate type and number of licenses for each asset included in the Product Content. For more information, please see the Asset Store Terms of Service and End User License Agreement.
2.3 Your Users.
You may allow your Users to exercise your rights hereunder, provided you have purchased a sufficient quantity of applicable subscriptions for each individual User. All use of DevOps Services, including any third party exercise of your rights hereunder, is subject to these DevOps Terms. You remain responsible for any breach of these DevOps Terms by your Users.
2.4 Plastic SCM Account.
Plastic SCM users may register for a “Plastic SCM Account” as an alternative to logging in with their Unity credentials. To create a Plastic SCM Account, you will be required to provide certain information, and you will establish a username and a password. You agree to provide accurate, current and complete information during the registration process and to update such information to keep it accurate, current and complete. Unity reserves the right to suspend or terminate your account if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, not current or incomplete. You are responsible for safeguarding your password. You agree not to disclose your password to any third party and to take sole responsibility for any activities or actions under your account, whether or not you have authorized such activities or actions. You will immediately notify Unity of any unauthorized use of your account.
You may cancel your Plastic SCM Account at any time by selecting “cancel” in your Plastic SCM dashboard or reaching out to your Unity account manager, as applicable. Canceling your Plastic SCM Account does not relieve you of the obligation to pay any and all remaining amounts owing for your existing Plastic SCM subscriptions and use of the cloud service.
Unity will have the right in its sole discretion, upon prior notice to you, to suspend or disable your Plastic SCM Account if you do not provide a valid payment method or your payment method does not work.
You understand and acknowledge that you and your Users’ ability to access and use your Plastic SCM Account, Plastic SCM, and your Project Content will cease once your Plastic SCM Account or your Unity Account is terminated or suspended, and Unity may immediately delete your Project Content at such time. Unity will not be liable to you or any third party in connection with any such termination or the deletion of your Project Content. Deletion of your Plastic SCM Account will not delete your Unity Account or other Unity service accounts. Furthermore, Unity will have no obligation to maintain any information stored in our databases related to your Plastic SCM Account.
3. Third Party Software.
DevOps Services may incorporate or be bundled with Third Party Software governed by separate terms, including open source licenses. In such an event, the Third Party Software terms will be identified in the product documentation and incorporated into this Agreement by reference. You agree that you have reviewed and accepted those terms and that your use of DevOps Services will be deemed acceptance thereof.
You agree that neither you nor any of your Users will, either directly or indirectly, encourage or engage in any of the following prohibited activities:
(i) using “web crawlers”, bots, or other types of software or hardware technology to download automatically materials from DevOps Services other than via Unity’s publicly supported interfaces;
(ii) accessing, searching, or attempting to use any part of the DevOps Services other than via Unity’s’ publicly supported interfaces;
(iii) attempting to probe, scan, or test the vulnerability of any part of the DevOps Services;

(v) attempting to circumvent any User or storage limits or other license, timing, or use restrictions associated with the DevOps Services, including attempting to remove any component parts of the DevOps Services in order to use them on more than one CPU;
(vi) breaching, or attempting to breach, any security or authentication measures;
(vii) using the DevOps Services to provide or assist any content delivery network functionality;
(viii) selling, reselling, renting, leasing, or otherwise supplying or providing access to any part of the DevOps Services to third parties in contravention of this Agreement;

(x) reverse engineering, disassembling, or decompiling any part of the DevOps Services or attempting to derive the source code of any part of the DevOps Services (except to the extent otherwise permitted by applicable law);
(xi) transmitting or storing personal or identifying data or information related to any individual or materials or content unrelated to your Project Content;
(xii) using DevOps Services in any manner that would violate any law or any intellectual property or privacy/personality right of any person or party;
(xiii) attempting to interfere with or disrupt any network or computer system related to the DevOps Services (e.g., through a virus or by overloading Unity’s network infrastructure);
(xiv) disclosing the results of any benchmarking of the DevOps Services, without the prior written consent of Unity;
(xv)using the DevOps Services to develop or build a competitive product or service using similar ideas, features, functions, UI, or UX of the DevOps Services;
(xvi) creating Internet “links” to the DevOps Services or the Site that are not associated with, connected, or related to the DevOps Services or the Site; or
(xvii) using DevOps Services in any way that results in a violation of the Terms applicable to you, including restrictions on the combination or integration of your Project Content developed with one tier of the Unity Software with any of your Project Content developed with another tier.
You acknowledge that Unity reserves the right to immediately suspend or terminate you and your Users’ ability to access and use the DevOps Services in the event you or any of your Users violate any of the foregoing restrictions.
Neither you nor Unity will communicate any data to the other in connection with the DevOps Services that constitutes Personal Data of any individual other than of its employees (or you if you are an individual) as necessary under these DevOps Terms.
In the event that you wish to provide Unity with any Personal Data other than as contemplated under this Section 5, then both parties agree to pursue in good faith a “Data Protection Agreement” as required under Data Protection Laws.
The provisions of this Section are without limitation or prejudice to any other remedies provided at law.
6. Term and Termination
Subscriptions for the cloud-based DevOps Services will remain in effect until you terminate your subscription in the Unity Dashboard, subject to your compliance with the Unity Terms of Service, these DevOps Terms, and payment of applicable fees. Fees for DevOps are set forth on the Site or via the Services’ online dashboard and administrative panel (the “Service Panel”). Unity may increase, modify or add new fees and charges for any of the Services from time to time by posting such changes to the Site or within the Services Panel.
Unity will provide you with at least thirty (30) days’ notice of any material changes to these DevOps Terms. Your continued use of DevOps Services after the effective date of any such change means that you accept and agree to such changes. If you do not agree, you may discontinue use of DevOps Services after the effective date.
Unity will have the right in its sole discretion, upon prior notice to you, to terminate your right or ability to access or use DevOps Services if you do not provide a valid payment method or your payment method does not work.
You are not required to provide Feedback to us, but in the event you do so, Unity will own the Feedback. You irrevocably assign to Unity all right, title and interest (including all intellectual property and proprietary rights) in and to any Feedback, which Unity, its affiliates and licensees may exploit without restriction.
8. Plastic SCM Support
Unity offers various subscriptions to access support and maintenance services for Plastic SCM, which includes ongoing updates to Plastic SCM and other services as set forth in this Section (the “Support Service”). Your access to the Support Service is subject to your compliance with this Agreement and payment of all applicable fees.
General Conditions. Your Support Service subscription will remain in effect for the initial subscription period, and thereafter will automatically renew for additional, consecutive twelve (12) month periods at the then-current list price unless either party notifies the other of its intent not to renew at least ninety (90) days prior to the end of the current subscription period. Once a renewal subscription period commences, you may add to or upgrade the Support Service you renewed, but you cannot remove, downgrade or cancel any renewed Support Service. If you do not purchase the Support Service for any period and wish to access the latest Plastic SCM update, then you may be required to pay Unity an update fee.
Scope. The Support Service assists with queries regarding the installation, configuration, faults, or problems concerning Plastic SCM and includes:
E-mail support. Queries shall be sent by E-mail to the following email address: email@example.com.
Communication in both English and Spanish.
Access to the Plastic SCM online forums and FAQs
For all properly submitted support requests, Unity will undertake reasonable efforts to: (a) acknowledge receipt of a support request from a technical services personnel within 2 business days; (b) provide a short status report to you within a reasonable time; (c) address the support request by providing a remedy (e.g., eliminating the defect in order to bring Plastic SCM into substantial conformity with its applicable documentation, providing updates, or demonstrating how to avoid the effects of the defect with reasonable commercial effort). Each party acknowledges that despite a party's reasonable efforts, not all problems may be solvable. Where on-going investigation is required, you will receive regular updates to your support request. Additionally, such updates may increase or lower the severity of the issue, in which case the frequency of updates will change accordingly.
Your Responsibilities. For each support request, you agree to provide the following information: (a) full contact information (name, surname, company name, department, E-mail and telephone number), (b) license or maintenance contract code, and (c) a clear and specific description of the problem or query.
Limitations. Unity’s obligation to provide the Support Service shall extend only to your Users who have active, valid Plastic SCM subscriptions throughout the Support Service term. Unity will have no obligation to provide the Support Service for problems in the operation or performance of Plastic SCM to the extent caused by a User-Generated Error.
If you engage an authorized Unity partner for first level support, only that partner (and not you) will send support requests and inquiries to Unity.
Further, the Support Service does not assist with the installation or usage of products/services that are not Plastic SCM, including:
- any Operating System,
- any product or tool that may be integrated with Plastic SCM,
- Relational Databases Management Systems, or
- Microsoft Office
The Support Service does not include travel expenses accumulated by the maintenance service.
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Unity does not warrant or guarantee that the claimed or actual defects or malfunctions in Plastic SCM will in fact be corrected.
