Acceptable Use Policy for CodeStream

June 3, 2021

New Relic’s mission is to instrument, measure and improve the internet to help our customers create more perfect software, experiences and businesses.

We strive to keep our resources operating efficiently, so our services are available to all subscribers. Because you have access to shared resources, we have put this Acceptable Use Policy (“AUP”) in place to ensure everyone has a great experience.

  5. Drastically exceeding your contracted rate of use as set forth in your order or the Documentation; or

  • If you choose to use any Separate Platform, your use of Separate Platforms is wholly subject to your separate agreement with the relevant provider.
  • New Relic bears no responsibility or liability for Separate Platforms.
  • If you enable Separate Platforms with the CodeStream Properties, New Relic may access and exchange Customer Data with the Separate Platforms on your behalf and instruction.

  • The license for any open source software identified as included in CodeStream Properties will, as required, wholly apply to your use of that open source software.
