In no event shall MetaFlows's or its suppliers' liability to Customer, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), or otherwise, exceed the price paid by Customer. The foregoing limitations shall apply even if the above-stated warranty fails of its essential purpose. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES.

METAFLOWS MAINTENANCE AND SOFTWARE SUPPORT SERVICES
1. Maintenance Services. In consideration for Subscriber's payment of the subscription fees MetaFlows, Inc. shall provide the maintenance services described in this Section ("Maintenance and Software Support Services"):
(a) Product Updates. MetaFlows, Inc. shall make available to Subscriber each "Minor" and "Maintenance" functional release of the software, make generally available without additional charge to its maintenance customers and that is intended to replace a prior version release ("Updates").
(b) Bug Fixes. MetaFlows, Inc. shall exercise commercially reasonable efforts to correct any reproducible malfunction in the Software reported to MetaFlows, Inc by Subscriber that prevents the Software from performing in accordance with the operating specifications (a "Bug"). Subscriber shall be responsible for the installation and testing of any Bug fixes.
(c) Email Support. With all subscriptions, regardless of number of sensors purchased, 24/7/365 email and web based support. Email support is available via email@example.com. Email support requests will be replied to within four (4) hours of receipt. This may not be a full resolution, but an analyst will begin work on and request any further information within this period. Most requests will be resolved within this time period. Requests that are not client specific (i.e. a false positive report for an ET or ET Pro rule, etc) do not require a subscription to contact and work with the MetaFlows, Inc support department. Support SLAs do not, of course, apply to non-subscribers, although reports will be handled with the same priority and speed.
2. Software Support Process. MetaFlows, Inc. endeavors to resolve technical issues on the first call or online request for assistance. All of their technical support engineers are highly qualified professionals, and have the responsibility of assessing the nature of the issue and working with the client to resolve the issue independently. Should any issue persist or escalate, the engineer will involve senior engineering management to work with the client until issues are resolved. If at any time the Subscriber feels the engineer it is working with may not be able to resolve the issue in a timely manner Subscriber has the right to request to escalate the issue to a senior engineer. In cases where it is established that an issue is not within the control of or purview of the Software or any other MetaFlows Inc product, or is unrelated and originating elsewhere in a customer's network or product, the engineers will be happy to continue to work on resolving the issue. However, their time will be charged at the current MetaFlows, Inc. professional services hourly rate. All charges of this nature will be quoted in writing prior to work continuing, and will require written acceptance from the client.
3. Conditions of Service.
3.1 Subscriber Assistance. Subscriber agrees to provide MetaFlows, Inc. reasonable access to all necessary personnel to answer questions or resolve problems reported by Subscriber regarding the Software.

4. Term and Termination.
4.1 Term. MetaFlows, Inc. shall provide Maintenance and Software Support Services for the duration of the subscription. Such term shall be automatically renewed at the end of the subscription period and again at the end of each term thereafter unless Subscriber gives written notice at least thirty (30) days before any such renewal date of its intent not to renew the Maintenance and Software Support Services.
4.2 Termination. Subscriber may terminate a Maintenance and Software Support Services contract at the end of any term by giving written notice to MetaFlows, Inc at least thirty (30) days prior to the end of such term.

II Snort License Agreement
SNORT© is an open source network intrusion detection system capable of performing real-time traffic analysis and packet logging on IP networks. Snort is comprised of two major components: (i) a detection engine that utilizes modular plug-in architecture (the "Snort Engine") and (ii) a flexible rule language to describe traffic to be collected (the "Snort Rules"). The Snort Rules are further comprised of those rules that are made available to all users of Snort.org (the "Community Snort Rules") and those confidential and proprietary rules that are developed by Sourcefire (the "Proprietary Snort Rules"). In order to access and download the Proprietary Snort Rules, you must either
(1) enroll either as a registered user, a subscriber to the Snort.org web site; along with agreeing to abide by the terms and conditions of the Non-Commercial Use Licensing governing the use of the Proprietary Snort Rules.
(2) or subscribe to the MetaFlows service as a paying customer in which case the use of the Proprietary Snort Rules are Governed by MetaFlows Licensing Agreement
Your Rights to use the Snort Engine and the Snort Rules during MetaFlows Free Trial period
Copies of the licenses are available at:
The purpose of distributing the Snort Engine and the Community Snort Rules under the GNU General Public License Version 2 is to encourage the development and distribution of open source software. Continuing the reliance on the open source community in developing Snort is an important step to providing a robust intrusion detection sensor that improves network security.
The Non-Commercial Use Licensing similarly allows users to copy, modify and distribute the source code of the Proprietary Snort Rules, with one very important exception. The distribution cannot be done for the purpose of reaping a commercial profit or gain. A user is only permitted to use the Proprietary Snort Rules for his/her own personal use. So for example, if a user embeds or relies on the Proprietary Snort Rules in a product that is then sold to a third party, this would be a violation of the Non-Commercial Use License, although this type of use would be permitted under the GNU GPL (assuming the other terms and conditions of the GNU GPL v.2 were followed).
You can freely modify and improve the Snort Engine and the Snort Rules source code. The key difference, however, is that the Proprietary Snort Rules are licensed to you for your personal use only, and you may not use, copy or distribute the Proprietary Snort Rules, directly or indirectly, for commercial profit or gain.
