This Master Subscription Agreement is effective as of April 8, 2020
This Fivetran Master Service Agreement (the “Agreement”) is made between Fivetran, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Fivetran”) and the party (“Customer”) that subscribes for the Services, as defined below. Between Fivetran and each Customer the Agreement consists of these terms, each signed order form or online enrollment (including any notes, pricing or other terms listed therein) (the “Order Form”), including any exhibits, and any updates or amendments to each. This Agreement is effective as of the date of Customer’s initial Order Form (the “Effective Date”). By executing the initial Order Form or accessing the Services, Customer agrees to all the terms set forth below. Customer’s usage of the Services is governed by Fivetran’s Service Consumption Table at https://fivetran.com/legal/credit-consumption.
In certain cases Fivetran may provide a trial version of the Services. In that case each Customer consents to this Agreement by clicking Agree or using the Services. If Customer and Fivetran execute a subsequent agreement regarding commercial use of the Services, its terms will supersede the terms here to the extent of any conflict.
THE PARTIES AGREE AS FOLLOWS:
1. SERVICES AND SUPPORT
1.1 Services. Fivetran will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide to Customer the services identified on each Order Form and the technical support on Exhibit A, and Customer will have use and access to such services, each according to the terms of the Agreement. The term “Services” includes the customer-facing services, implementation services, support, Software (as defined below) and any other services provided by Fivetran to Customer.

5. PAYMENT OF FEES
5.1 Calculation of Fees. Customer will pay Fivetran the applicable fees described in each Order Form (the “Fees”). Fees for committed prepaid subscriptions are identified on the initial Order Form. Fees for month-to-month plans are outlined in the terms attached to such plans. Except as otherwise provided herein all fees are noncancelable and nonrefundable. If Customer’s use of the Services exceeds the Services capacity set forth on the Order Form(s) or terms, or otherwise requires the payment of additional fees (per the terms of this Agreement), Fivetran will invoice Customer in arrears for such additional usage and Customer agrees to pay the additional Fees in the manner provided herein.
5.2 Payment Terms. Fivetran will bill for the Services through an invoice, through the marketplace where the original purchase was made, or directly through credit card if provided. Full payment for invoices issued in any given month must be received by Fivetran within 30 days after the issuance of the invoice (which may be sent by email). If Customer is paying by credit card, Customer represents and warrants that it has the right to use the credit card provided and grants Fivetran the right to provide the credit card information, including the credit card number, its expiration date and billing address, to third parties for the purposes of facilitating payment transactions. Verification of information may be required prior to the acknowledgment or completion of any payment transaction. Unpaid amounts are subject to a finance charge of 1.5% per month on any outstanding balance, or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is lower, plus all expenses of collection and may result in immediate termination of Services. Customer is responsible for any sales, use, value added, excise, property, withholding or similar tax and any related tariffs, and similar charges, except taxes based on Fivetran’s net income. If Customer is required to pay any such taxes, Customer shall pay such taxes with no reduction or offset in the amounts payable to Fivetran hereunder. If an applicable tax authority requires Fivetran to pay any taxes that should have been payable by Customer, Fivetran will advise Customer in writing, and Customer will promptly reimburse Fivetran for the amounts paid. If Customer believes that Fivetran has billed Customer incorrectly, Customer must contact Fivetran no later than 60 days after the date of the first billing statement in which the error or problem appeared, in order to receive an adjustment or credit. Inquiries should be directed to Fivetran’s customer support department. Without limiting its other remedies, Fivetran may suspend Services for nonpayment of fees.
6. TERM AND TERMINATION
6.1 Term. This Agreement will continue from the Effective Date until the earlier of: (a) the expiration of all Services subscriptions, (b) for month-to-month customers, until such date as a monthly plan is cancelled, or (c) termination pursuant to Section 6.2 below (together, the “Term”). Month-to-month plans will renew automatically each month and may be cancelled at any time on notice by either party to the other. If Customer uses all credits prior to the end of the subscription period listed on the Order Form, Customer will be billed in arrears according to the Order Form for any continued usage of the Services and consumption of credits in arrears. Each Services subscription will run for the subscription term specified in the applicable Order Form and will renew automatically on Fivetran’s then-current terms and conditions for one-year periods, unless a party provides notice of nonrenewal to the other part at least 30 days prior to expiration of the applicable. Fivetran will notify Customer in connection with any renewal to provide opportunity for notice and/or cancellation.
6.2 Termination for Cause. In addition to any other remedies it may have, (A) either party may terminate this Agreement upon written notice (or without notice in the case of nonpayment), if the other party (i) materially breaches any of the terms or conditions of this Agreement and fails to cure such breach within 30 days after written notice describing the breach; or (ii) files for bankruptcy or is the subject of an involuntary filing in bankruptcy (in the latter case, which filing is not discharged within 60 days) or makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors or a trustee is appointed over all or a substantial portion of its assets and (B) Fivetran may additionally terminate this Agreement and the Services (or any portion of the Services) (i) immediately and without notice if it has reason to believe Customer is violating Section 2 of this Agreement; or (ii) following notice, in the case a Customer has no more Credits available and has not transferred data using the Services for a consecutive 90 day period (each, “Termination for Cause”). In the case of Termination for Cause under Section 6.2(B)(ii), a Customer may revive its account by purchasing additional Credits or by recommencing data transfers (in which case, payment will be made in arrears according to the Order Form). Fivetran terminates this Agreement for Customer’s breach, Customer remains obligated to pay the balance due on Customer’s account for the remainder of the Term, computed in accordance with the applicable Order Form(s), and will be billed for such unpaid fees.
6.3 Survival. All sections of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination will survive termination, including, without limitation, accrued rights to payment, confidentiality obligations, warranty disclaimers, and limitations of liability.

Fivetran offers the SLA available online at www.fivetran.com/consumption-sla, as applicable.
Updated Sept 17, 2020
For Standard and Enterprise Plan Level Customers, Fivetran guarantees that at least 99.9% of the time, the Core Services will be available and operational.
For Enterprise Plan Level Customers, for properly setup connector services, Fivetran guarantees to reliably load data on schedule at least 99.9% of the time.
This SLA applies to the (a) availability of Fivetran’s Core Services, and (b) Fivetran’s Data Delivery Services for connections to Customer data sources, both as described in this SLA. If Fivetran does not achieve and maintain the Service Levels for each Service as described in this SLA, then Customer may be eligible for a credit towards a portion of its monthly service fees. Any modifications to the terms of this SLA will not be effective during the initial term of Customer’s subscription; however, if Customer renews its subscription, the version of this SLA that is current at the time of renewal will apply throughout the renewal term. Fivetran will provide at least 90 days’ notice for adverse material changes to this SLA.
“Applicable Monthly Service Fees” - means the total fees actually paid by Customer for a Service that are applied to the month in which a Service Credit is owed. For Data Delivery Services, this will be each individual service affected by Downtime, for example a specific connector like Salesforce, or Mailchimp.
“Monthly Pipeline Minutes” - All of the minutes that a single Fivetran pipeline is turned on or activated during the month of a Downtime.
"Service Credit" - is the percentage of the Applicable Monthly Service Fees credited to Customerfollowing Fivetran’s claim approval.
“Service Credit Percentage” means for every hour of Downtime, the percentage of the Applicable Monthly Service Fees applied back to the Customer in the form of Service Credits.
Customer must submit claims to Fivetran customer support at support.fivetran.com along with all information necessary for Fivetran to validate each claim, including: (i) a detailed description of the incident; (ii) information regarding the time and duration of the Downtime; (iii) the number and location(s) of affected users (if applicable); and (iv) descriptions of Customer’s attempts to resolve the incident.
Fivetran must receive the claim within two months of the end of the month in which the incident occurred. Fivetran will evaluate all reasonably available information and make a good faith determination of whether a Service Credit is owed. Fivetran will use commercially reasonable efforts to process claims within 45 days of receipt. Customer must be in compliance with the Agreement to be eligible for Credits. If a Service Credit is owed to Customer, Fivetran will apply the Service Credit to Customer’s subsequent service term or to any additional Services added during the current term.
If Customer experiences Downtime for multiple Services, they must submit a separate claim for each Service. For example, if Customer experienced Downtime for both Salesforce Data Replication and MySQL Data Replication, Customer could be eligible for two separate Service Credits for Data Delivery (one for each Service), by submitting two claims under this SLA. Service Credits are Customer’s sole remedy for performance or availability issues for any Service under the Agreement and this SLA.
Service Credits are Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy for any performance or availability issues for any Service under the Agreement and this SLA. Customer may not unilaterally offset Applicable Monthly Service Fees for any performance or availability issues.
Service Credits for Core Services that are given for Downtime for Core Services experienced may not be redeemed for cash and may not exceed 25% of the total monthly fees paid to Fivetran in the month that the incident occurred, and may not exceed 10% of annualized fees paid for the current term. These lower limits are due to the fact that Data Delivery services can still perform while the API, or Web Application are experiencing downtime. Service Credits will be credited to Customer’s account in the form of Fivetran Credits at Customer’s current plan level.
Note: With Fivetran, not all Core Services are directly correlated with Data Delivery Services. For example, Fivetran’s Web Application, and APIs could be down and Fivetran could still be delivering data on schedule. In addition, Fivetran’s replication servers could be available, but data is not being delivered due to load errors, source API issues, etc.
If one Core Service has Downtime, Customer will receive a Service Credit as outlined above even if the other Core Services are working. If more than one Core Service is down concurrently, the Customer will receive the same Service Credit, not multiple credits.
Service Credits for Data Delivery may not be redeemed for cash, and may not exceed 50% of the total monthly fees paid to Fivetran for the affected connector in the month that the incident occurred. Service Credits will be credited to Customer’s account in the form of Fivetran credits at Customer’s current plan level.
Downtime does not include Service unavailability due to the following:
Maintenance requested by Customer, scheduled maintenance or unscheduled emergency maintenance, either by Fivetran or by third-party providers. Fivetran will provide seven days’ advance notice in writing or by e-mail of scheduled maintenance, not to exceed 24 hours per month.
Failure of equipment, software or other parts of the Services not listed as a Core Service or Data Delivery Service.
Outages of third party connections or utilities or other reasons beyond Fivetran’s reasonable control.
If Fivetran’s cloud vendor (GCP, or AWS) experiences downtime, Customer does not accrue Downtime for Core Services during this downtime period.
The Customer uses equipment, software or Services in a way that is not recommended by Fivetran.
The Customer has delayed, hindered or prevented Fivetran from providing Services, such as removing Fivetran’s access to Customer data sources or warehouses.
The Service has become unavailable as a result of unsupported equipment, software or other third-party services which are not fully functional, which includes but is not limited to undocumented API changes, API limits, or sync failures due to new or changed data that disrupts the schema mapping rules.
Customer’s breach of any of its agreements with Fivetran, or Fivetran’s responses thereto.
The Service is a private preview or beta release or other pre-production release of a component of the Services.
Fivetran offers an Uptime SLA for Core Services for Customers who purchase a pricing plan that includes this option as specified on Customer’s executed Order Form.
“Core Services” - means following Core Services, with their Monthly Uptime Percentage, and Service Credit Percentages are applicable to Customers who have purchased Core Service SLA:
|CORE SERVICE||DESCRIPTION||MONTHLY UPTIME PERCENTAGE||SERVICE CREDIT PERCENTAGE|
|Web Application||Fivetran’s web application for accessing, viewing, and controlling Fivetran services.||99.9%||1%|
|API||Fivetran’s REST API for programmatically controlling Fivetran services.||99.9%||1%|
|Replication Servers||Fivetran’s replication servers that run Fivetran data replication services.||99.9%||1%|
“Downtime” - When a Core Service, described below in the table in Monthly Uptime Percentage, is unavailable. For example, for Fivetran’s Web Application, if a user tries to access it and receives a 404 page, or the application will not load it is considered unavailable. Downtime is measured in minutes.
"Maximum Available Monthly Minutes" - is the absolute maximum number of Monthly Pipeline Minutes across all of Customer’s Services, that is not to exceed the total minutes in an average month (43,000).
For example, if Customer has two pipeline services, Salesforce, which ran for a total of 30,000 minutes, and Marketo, which ran for 23,000, Customer’s Maximum Available Monthly Minutes would equal 30,000.
”Monthly Uptime Percentage” - for Core Services is calculated as Maximum Available Monthly Minutes less Downtime divided by the Maximum Available Monthly Minutes. Monthly Uptime Percentage is represented by the following formula:
MONTHLY UPTIME % = (MAXIMUM AVAILABLE MINUTES - DOWNTIME) / MAXIMUM AVAILABLE MONTHLY MINUTES
Uptime for Core Services is monitored via status.fivetran.com.
”Service Credit Calculation” - If a service is considered to be down longer than the Monthly Uptime Percentage, and if Customer has purchased Fivetran’s Uptime SLA, Customer will accrue Service Credits. Service Credits for Core Services is represented by the following formula:
SERVICE CREDITS = DOWNTIME * APPLICABLE MONTHLY SERVICE FEES * SERVICE CREDIT PERCENTAGE
In April, Customer uses a total of 100 Fivetran Credits, costing a total of $100 (Applicable Monthly Service Fees). During that month Fivetran’s Web Application was unavailable for 4.27 hours due to a server failure. For every hour of the 4.27 hours of Downtime that Core Services experienced, Customer is credited back 1% of the $100 against Customer’s usage of Fivetran services in May or future months for a total of $4.27.
$4.27 (Service Credits) = 4.27 Hours (Downtime for Core Services ) * $100 (Application Monthly Service Fees) * 1% (Service Credit Percentage)
Fivetran offers a Data Delivery SLA for Customers who purchase a pricing plan that includes this option as specified on Customer’s executed Order Form.
“Allowed Downtime Interval” - 12 hours is added to the Normal Update Time for Fivetran to successfully sync a connector before Customer starts accruing Downtime. A Data Delivery SLA is a guarantee that Fivetran will load data on a regular interval, which is defined as the combined total time of the Normal Update Time added onto the Allowed Downtime Interval.
“Data Delivery Services” – means any data connectors that are loading data through Customer’s Fivetran account. Customer’s connectors are only included in this SLA if Customer has purchased the Data Delivery SLA for its current term.
For a Service to be covered by this Data Delivery SLA, each table from a data source must be proven capable of syncing to Customer’s target warehouse by: successfully syncing the initial data load, and then successfully syncing the fewer times of 48 incremental successful loads (approximately 2 days of syncs based on average 1 hour sync intervals) or 5 consecutive days of incremental successful loads.
The following types of Data Delivery Services, with their Monthly Uptime Percentage, and Service Credit Percentages are applicable to Customers who have purchased Fivetran’s Data Delivery SLA:
|DATA DELIVERY SERVICE||DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES||MONTHLY UPTIME PERCENTAGE||SERVICE CREDIT PERCENTAGE|
|File Storage Connectors||
|Email & Event Connectors||
“Downtime” - Downtime for Data Delivery will begin to accrue after the service has not been successfully loading data into Customers target destination for the length of the Normal Update Time plus the Allowed Downtime Interval. The Allowed Downtime Interval for Data Delivery Services is 12 hours + the connector’s Normal Update Time, which can be found on a rolling 30 day average within the Fivetran dashboard.
For example, if the affected connector’s Normal Update Time was 2 hours, then the Allowed Downtime Interval would be 12 + 2 = 14 hours, and the Customer would not start accruing Downtime until 14 hours after data loading stopped. In order to be eligible for downtime, the connection must (a) be completely broken / not loading data at all, or (b) more than 15% of tables do not load during the Normal Update Time for the Service.
”Monthly Uptime Percentage” - for Data Delivery Services is calculated as Monthly Pipeline Minutes for the affected connector less Downtime divided by Monthly Pipeline Minutes for that affected connector. Monthly Uptime Percentage is represented by the following formula:
MONTHLY UPTIME % = (MONTHLY PIPELINE MINUTES - DOWNTIME) / MONTHLY PIPELINE MINUTES
Downtime for Data Delivery is monitored via Fivetran logs at fivetran.com/dashboard or via the Fivetran Log Connector or via Fivetran’s log service that exports service logs to Customer’s designated log service, such as AWS Cloudwatch.
“Service Credit Calculation” - If a service is considered to be down longer than the Monthly Uptime Percentage, if Customer has purchased Fivetran’s Uptime SLA, Customer will accrue Service Credits. Service Credits are calculated as:
SERVICE CREDITS = DOWNTIME * APPLICABLE MONTHLY SERVICE FEES * SERVICE CREDIT PERCENTAGE
In April, Customer consumed 417 Fivetran Credits to load data for Customer’s Salesforce connector service, costing $417 (Applicable Monthly Service Fees). During that month Customers Salesforce connector experienced a loading error, and was unable to load data for 16.7 hours past the Allowed Downtime interval and the Normal Update Time. For every hour of the 16.7 hours of Downtime experienced for Customer’s Salesforce Connector, Customer is credited back 0.25% of the $417 against Customer’s usage of Fivetran services in May or future months for a total of $17.40.
$17.40 (Service Credits) = 16.7 Hours (Downtime) * $417 (Application Monthly Service Fees) * 0.25% (Service Credit Percentage)
“Normal Update Time” – the average time between successful syncs over the previous 14 days, as specified on the connector page within the Fivetran application dashboard. Normal Update Time is not available until there have been 48 successful incremental loads.

Updated November 23, 2020
The Fivetran Service is an automated cloud data pipeline (“Connectors”) provided by Fivetran Inc. (“Fivetran”, “we”, “us”, “our”) to Fivetran customers (each a “Customer”, “you”, “your”) as a service which consumes data from various sources and centralizes this data into a specific destination. The Fivetran Service is available in several different plans (“Plans”) and hosted in different geographical regions (“Regions”) by certain third-party cloud providers (“Cloud Providers”), as described more fully in your agreement with Fivetran (“Agreement”).
Account: The customer’s paid account on the Fivetran Service. An account may have multiple connectors and destinations. A customer may have multiple accounts.
Billing Period: A calendar month running from the first to the last day of the month. For Customers whose Plans begin midway or partially through a given Billing Period, bills may be pro-rated.
Capacity Purchase: A subscription-based plan which requires an annual upfront purchase of Credits in bulk.
Credit: Usage of the Fivetran Service is charged on the basis of “Credits” which are purchased and which provide value based on the MAR Threshold, as set forth on the Service Consumption Table, and the actual number of MARs used by the Customer in a given Billing Period.
Destination: A destination is a warehouse or database where the data is delivered.
Effective Credits: The average number or conversion price in Credits of the million MAR at the MAR Threshold for the month in question.
Incremental Credits: The average number or conversion price in Credits for the next million MAR (or portion of the next million MAR) after the MAR Threshold has been met for the month in question.
Initial Historical Sync: The first time that a connector completes a historical sync.
Monthly: A plan which is not subscription based, whereby a Customer is billed monthly in-arrears for Credits used during the prior monthly period. Monthly plans are available to purchase at fivetran.com/account/billing or through the AWS or GCP marketplaces.
Monthly Active Rows (“MAR”): The number of distinct primary keys synced via the Fivetran plan calculated on a per-Account basis. We only count a row once per Billing Period, even if it syncs multiple times.
Monthly Active Row (“MAR”) Threshold: The minimum MAR usage requirement to receive consumption rates as listed on the Service Consumption Table below.
On-Demand: For Capacity Purchase (i.e. subscription plans) only, this means any additional usage of Credits after the initial purchased Credits have been used. Capacity Purchase plans that have no more Credits available will be moved to On-Demand whereby monthly Credit usage will be billed in-arrears at list price. On-Demand occurs automatically for Capacity Purchase customers after you have depleted an initial Capacity Purchase.
Plan: The bundle of features included as a part of your Fivetran Service and outlined here. Plans may be purchased in the form of Capacity Purchase plans (which are subscription-based), or may be Monthly (which do not require subscriptions).
Primary Key: A unique identifier that specifies a distinct row within a table.
Rollover: For Capacity Purchase (i.e. subscription) plans only, this means any unused Credits at the end of your contracted period with Fivetran that can continue to be used in the following period, as long as you have an active contract.
Monthly Active Rows (MAR) are similar to total monthly synced rows but are less prone to variation and less prone to outliers. MAR is calculated as the number of distinct primary keys observed by Fivetran in a given Billing Period. Primary Keys are counted separately by Fivetran Account, Destination, and Connector. For clarity, if a distinct Primary Key is synced more than once in a given Billing Period then the distinct primary key counts as only a single Monthly Active Row. For example, a distinct Primary Key synced 30 times during a Billing Period will count as one Monthly Active Row. If a Primary Key is not available, we create a synthetic (hashed) Primary Key to ensure consistent tracking. One exception to this is that we exclude Monthly Active Rows associated with the initial historical sync for each new connector added.
Monthly Credits used are determined by the number of Monthly Active Rows within each billing account across that Billing Period. Monthly Credits are consumed based on a diminishing slope: in other words, the more unique data you sync in a Billing Period, the cheaper the incremental cost per unique Monthly Active Row.
The pricing of your Credits depends on the plan you have selected and whether you are drawing down from an initial Capacity Purchase Plan or paying for supplemental Credits via our On-Demand program. For non-subscription Plans (i.e. Monthly Plans), the pricing of your Credits is based on the prices available on our website, fivetran.com/pricing.
If you are drawing down from a Capacity Purchase Plan, your credit consumption rates will be determined by the Service Consumption Table outlined below. Capacity Credit Pricing is determined by your Order Form. Purchased Credits may be applied toward any of your Accounts on the Fivetran Service. However, the Service Consumption Table benefits for anything higher volume than is listed below may be applied on an Account by Account basis (and cannot be combined across accounts). Fivetran will provide you with monthly usage, in-arrears via the Fivetran dashboard.
On-Demand is a supplemental credit program that occurs automatically for Capacity Purchase plan customers who continue to use the Fivetran Service after depleting their available Capacity Purchase Credits. If you are drawing down Credits from On-Demand, your Credit consumption rates will be determined by the Service Consumption Table and the price per Credit of your Plan. You will not benefit from any capacity discounts for these On-Demand Credits and will be billed for On-Demand usage in-arrears for each Billing Period.
|Monthly Active Row Threshold||Base Credits per Month||Incremental Credits per Million MAR*||Effective Credits Per Million MAR|
*or portion thereof.
In order to calculate monthly Credit consumption we use the following formula:
Base Credits per Month + (MAR - Monthly Active Row Threshold) * Incremental Credits per Million MAR
To find your cost per credit:
If you are a Capacity Purchase plan customer, look to your Order Form.
If you are a Monthly customer, see our pricing page which details the price per Credit plan.
Rollover of Credits is only applicable to customers with Capacity Purchase accounts, not Monthly Plans. If you do not use the Credits that you purchased during the term of your contract, you can still use them if you renew your subscription. Subscription renewals require a minimum purchase of $1,000 worth of Credits, and when you do so the remaining Credits on your account can be rolled over to the new contract term. If you have a subscription account that is coming to an end, contact your account representative to learn more about Credit rollover.
We will adjust the use of Fivetran Service Consumption Table by pro-rating your first month’s purchase so you’re not penalized for starting the service mid-month. This helps right-size all of our new customers and ensures that you can start Fivetran easily, at any point in the month, without wasting Credits. For example, if your subscription starts on the 15th and it's a 30-day month, then we will adjust the Credit Consumption rates in the Service Consumption Table by 0.5. The pro-rating will take into account how many days in the month have already passed and the number of actual days in that month. This will be determined by Fivetran in its discretion.
If you decide to open multiple Fivetran Accounts, each account will apply the Fivetran Service Consumption Table for the MAR within that Account. You cannot add together the MAR for multiple Accounts and apply this MAR to Fivetran Service Consumption Table to get a more favorable credit consumption rate. However, if you would like to merge multiple Accounts into a single Account with separate destinations, you can reach out to Support through your dashboard or your account representative to get help with this migration. Merging accounts can have significant benefits, especially if the combined accounts have a high MAR usage.
This Fivetran Service Consumption Table may be updated from time to time and you will be subject to any future changes. Don’t worry, we won’t make changes to this table that have a material adverse effect without your consent. We may make changes, however, to improve ease of understanding among our customer base, to make credit conversions more favorable, or for other reasons. When and if changes to the Credit Consumption Table are made, Fivetran will use reasonable best efforts to provide advance notice of any material changes through the Fivetran Service dashboard or via email. Any allowable changes shall be effective immediately unless otherwise noted.
