Last Updated: December 1, 2018
These Data Sharing Rebate Credit Terms and Conditions supplement the terms of the agreement you have entered into with Snowflake that governs the use of the Snowflake services you purchased (e.g. Snowflake’s Terms of Service or Master SaaS Terms and Conditions) (“Customer Agreement”). The terms of your Customer Agreement are incorporated herein by reference. In the event of a conflict between these Rebate Terms and Conditions and your Customer Agreement, these Rebate Terms and Conditions control with respect to the Rebate Program.
Participation in the Rebate Program and the opportunity to earn Data Sharing Rebate Credits are offered at the sole discretion of Snowflake and are subject to your compliance with these Rebate Terms and Conditions and your Customer Agreement. SNOWFLAKE MAY LIMIT, SUSPEND, OR TERMINATE YOUR ABILITY TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM IN ITS SOLE AND ABSOLUTE DISCRETION, AND MAY CHANGE, SUSPEND, OR CANCEL ANY PORTION OF THE PROGRAM, INCLUDING ANY REBATE CREDITS YOU MAY HAVE EARNED THROUGH THE PROGRAM, AT ANY TIME WITH OR WITHOUT PRIOR NOTICE TO YOU.
For the purposes of these Rebate Terms and Conditions and pursuant to the Customer Agreement, the Snowflake customer sharing certain of its data sets selected by such Snowflake customer (“Data Set(s)”) is the “Provider” and the Snowflake customer accessing or using Provider’s Data Set(s) is the “Consumer.”
1. Eligibility. The Rebate Program is offered by Snowflake to Customers who have data sharing provisions in their existing Customer Agreements. Unless you have opted out of the Rebate Program as noted above, all Customers existing prior to the effective date of these Rebate Terms and Conditions listed above who have a Customer Agreement that contains specific data sharing language that authorizes the Customer to share data are automatically enrolled in the Rebate Program.
2. Qualifying Data Consumption. When you act as a Provider, you may elect to grant Consumers access Data Set(s) by following the instructions available in the Documentation. You will earn Data Sharing Rebate Credits based on queries by Consumers to such Data Set as further described in Section 3 below.
The following queries do not qualify for the Rebate Program:
• Data Set queries of Reader Accounts or Read Only Accounts (as defined in the Customer Agreement) (i.e. Accounts that enable Providers to share data with Consumers who are not already Snowflake customers, without requiring Consumers to become Snowflake customers);
• Data Set queries of or for non-production use Accounts;
• Data Set queries by Consumer Accounts that are affiliated with the Provider (e.g. Consumer Accounts owned or controlled by the Provider or by any entity that controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with the Provider); and
• Data Set queries where Snowflake cannot attribute the source of the data to the Data Set shared by the Provider (e.g. queries that only search metadata, queries with expressions, queries that do not use an Account for execution, etc.).
Snowflake reserves the right to delay, suspend, recalculate, reduce, or revoke any Data Sharing Rebate Credits that Snowflake suspects are related to non-qualified queries.
3. Rebate Credit Calculations. When Consumers make qualifying queries from an Account, Providers will earn Data Sharing Rebate Credits equal to 10% of the Snowflake Credits (adjusted by the specific Edition and Region as set forth below) charged to the Consumer that are attributed to the Consumer queries of such Provider’s Data Set. Data Sharing Rebate Credits will be calculated and rounded to a three-digit decimal number (e.g. x.xxx). For instance, assuming the Consumer and Provider are on the same Edition and Region of Snowflake’s service, if it costs a Consumer one Snowflake Credit to query an X-Small Virtual Warehouse for one hour and the Consumer only queries the Data Set of one Provider in the X-Small Virtual Warehouse for one minute, then the Consumer would be billed 1/60th of a Snowflake Credit and the Provider would receive 0.002 Snowflake Credits (10% of the 1/60th of one Snowflake Credit, rounded to no less than a three-digit decimal number).
If a Consumer runs qualifying queries using multiple Providers’ Data Sets, each Provider will receive a fractional Data Sharing Rebate Credit based on such Provider’s percentage of the Data Set accessed for such queries. For example, if the Consumer and Providers are on the same Edition and Region of Snowflake’s service and the Consumer runs a query on two separate Provider’s Data Sets that consume 1 total Snowflake Credit, with each Provider’s Data Set contributing 50% of the source for the query, then each Provider would receive 0.05 Data Sharing Rebate Credits (50% of 10% of 1 Snowflake Credit).
Because Snowflake Credits have different value depending on the Edition and Region of the Snowflake services, if the Provider and the Consumer have purchased different Editions of Snowflake’s service and/or are in different Regions, then the Snowflake Credits consumed by the Consumer will be converted using the then-current list price into the same dollar-to-credit ratio as the Edition and Region used by the Provider in order to calculate the amount of Data Sharing Rebate Credits earned by the Provider. For example, if the Snowflake Credit pricing for the Consumer’s Edition and Region is $2 per 1 Snowflake Credit and the Snowflake Credit pricing for the Provider’s Edition and Region is $4 for 1 Snowflake Credit, and the Consumer’s query of the Provider’s Data Set consumes 4 Snowflake Credits, the 4 Snowflake Credits consumed by the Consumer will be converted to $8, which is equal to 2 Snowflake Credits in the Provider’s Edition and Region, and the Provider will receive 0.2 Data Sharing Rebate Credits (10% of 2 Snowflake Credits). If either the Provider or Consumer’s Edition and/or Region changes in the middle of a monthly billing cycle, the ratio will also be re-calculated in accordance with the foregoing paragraphs.
4. Rebate Credit Terms. Data Sharing Rebate Credits that you have collected as a Provider pursuant to the Rebate Program will be automatically applied to your Account at the end of each calendar month and may only be used to reduce the number of Snowflake Credits that you have consumed in such calendar month. The Data Sharing Rebate Credits that you can collect during a calendar month are capped at the number of Snowflake Credits that you consume during such a period. Data Sharing Rebate Credits do not rollover from month to month and cannot be applied to any Snowflake Credits consumed prior to or after the calendar month in which the applicable Data Sharing Rebate Credits were collected. If you change Edition and/or Region in the middle of a monthly billing cycle, all Data Sharing Rebate Credits will be converted into the dollar-to-credit ratio of the new Edition and/or Region at the time of change. Snowflakes’ decisions and records regarding Rebate Credit calculations and consumption will be final and binding in all respects. The total aggregate amount of Data Sharing Rebate Credits you have accrued and consumed will be displayed on your Snowflake invoices. It is your responsibility to check your Snowflake invoices regularly to ensure that Data Sharing Rebate Credits have been properly issued and applied to your Account balance, and that your balances are accurate. If you believe that Data Sharing Rebate Credits have not been properly issued or applied to your Account balance, you must contact Snowflake at [email protected] within sixty (60) days of the date of the applicable invoice.
Data Sharing Rebate Credits cannot be earned for queries that occurred before December 1, 2018.
Data Sharing Rebate Credits cannot be combined between multiple accounts. Data Sharing Rebate Credits are promotional in nature and have no cash value. Under no circumstances are Data Sharing Rebate Credits redeemable for cash or cash-equivalents. Data Sharing Rebate Credits have no value outside this Rebate Program.
Data Sharing Rebate Credits cannot be assigned, exchanged, sold, traded, bartered, purchased, gifted or otherwise transferred. Any Data Sharing Rebate Credits purported to be transferred in violation of the foregoing sentence are void. The earning of Data Sharing Rebate Credits does not entitle the Customer to any vested rights, and Snowflake does not guarantee in any way the continued availability of any Data Sharing Rebate Credits.
5. Additional Terms. Snowflake reserves the right to prohibit the application of the Rebate Program in combination with other discounts and/or promotions.

If Snowflake has any reason to suspect fraudulent or dishonest activity is associated with your Account, Snowflake reserves the right to delay or withhold the issuance or use of Data Sharing Rebate Credits. Snowflake reserves the right to make adjustments to your pre-purchased Snowflake Credits to offset any revoked Data Sharing Rebate Credits.
