Supplemental Terms for Stack Overflow for Teams

These Supplemental Terms for Stack Overflow for Teams (“Supplemental Terms”) supplement and form a part of your main Stack Overflow for Teams agreement (“Agreement”).

Depending on your Stack Overflow for Teams implementation, Stack may provision you with add-on products and/or additional features (each an "Add-On"). Such Add-Ons may be provided as part of a private or public alpha, beta, or preview (each a "Test Release"), to which the applicable terms are provided below if required to be made publicly available.

By using an Add-On or participating in a Test Release, you also agree to the applicable Supplemental Terms. If a Test Release includes an update or new feature associated with an Add-On, you acknowledge that more than one set of applicable terms as provided herein may apply.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Agreement, the license rights granted under the Agreement and these Supplemental Terms are intended for internal evaluation and testing purposes and may be immediately terminated by Stack in its sole discretion for any reason at any time. Upon such termination, Customer shall promptly discontinue any use of and/or uninstall the terminated Test Release, as may be appropriate.

Stack’s total aggregate liability to Customer for all claims arising under or relating to the Test Releases will not exceed one hundred US dollars ($100) for all damages, regardless of the nature of the claim or theory of liability.

Customer shall use commercially reasonable efforts to provide Feedback to Stack about the Test Releases, the extent to which will be mutually agreed upon in writing, between Customer and Stack prior to commencement of any Test Release. Customer may provide the names and company emails of those individuals designated by Customer to Stack for further evaluative follow up.

AI Enhanced Services

In the course of provisioning certain services, Stack may leverage artificial intelligence (“AI”) in the provision of those services (“AI Enhanced Services”) to provide certain features or functionality, which includes the use of large language models (“LLMs”).

Customer acknowledges that Stack may use certain Customer provided information, including Content, submitted to the AI Enhanced Services, and Customer instructs Stack to process that Content for such purposes, provided that Stack maintains appropriate segmentation and retention in accordance with the Agreement. Stack will not use any Content, nor permit the use by any of its service partners of any Content, for training of the LLMs without written authorization from Customer.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, Stack may use: (i) interactions with the AI Enhanced Services (without limitation, e.g., feedback to outputs) to provide support for and to improve the AI Enhanced Services; (ii) insights and learnings from inputs into and outputs from the AI Enhanced Services to provide support for and to improve the AI Enhanced Services, provided that any such usage is in aggregated or de-identified form and will not identify Customer or any individual; and (iii) the Content to provide support for and to improve any LLMs, if and only if, such LLMs are personalized for and provided specifically to Customer.

For clarity, Customer retains all ownership of such Content and Stack retains all ownership in and of all aggregated metrics, feedback, system performance data, and machine learning algorithms, including any aggregated and/or anonymized results or outcomes associated with the machine learning.

Changes to Terms

As our service and product offerings grow and evolve, we may need to update these Supplemental Terms to reflect such changes.Accordingly, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Agreement, Stack reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to update these Supplemental Terms in relation to the development and release of updated features and/or functionality or as may be required to comply with any applicable laws.
