  3. The “Website” refers to Humio’s website located at, and all content, services, and products provided by Humio at or through the Website. It also refers to Humio-owned subdomains of, such as and
  4. "Customer", “You,” and “Your” refer to the company, or organization that has visited or is using the Website or Service; that accesses or uses any part of the account; or that directs the use of the account in the performance of its functions. Special terms may apply for business or government accounts (See Section B(6): Additional Terms).
  5. "User" refers to the individual who has visited or is using the Website or Service on your behalf; that accesses or uses any part of the account on your behalf; or that directs the use of the account in the performance of their functions on your behalf. A User must be at least 18 years of age.
  6. “Humio,” “We,” and “Us” refer to Humio, Ltd., as well as our affiliates, directors, subsidiaries, contractors, licensors, officers, agents, and employees.
  7. A "Corporate Account" refers to any account created by a User on behalf of an entity, such as a company, non-profit organization, or group.
  8. “Content” refers to content featured or displayed through the Website, including without limitation text, data, articles, images, photographs, graphics, software, applications, designs, features, and other materials that are available on the Website or otherwise available through the Service. "Content" also includes Services. “User-Generated Content” is Content, written or otherwise, created or uploaded by our Users. "Your Content" is Content that you create or own.

B. Account Terms

Short version: A human must create your account; the creator and Users of your account must be 18 or over; you must provide a valid email address; and you may not have more than one free account. You alone are responsible for your account and anything that happens while you are signed in to or using your account. You are responsible for keeping your account secure.

1. Required Information

You must provide a valid email address and your company’s name in order to complete the signup process. Any other information requested, such as your real name, is optional, unless you upgrade to a paid account.

2. Corporate Terms Applicability

The Corporate Terms of Service Agreement applies only if you are entering into an agreement with Humio on behalf of an entity, such as a company, non-profit organization, or group. To the extent these terms conflict with any other terms you've accepted for use of, these terms will govern with respect to any work you do on Humio on behalf of Customer.

If you are entering into this Agreement on behalf of an entity, you represent that you are authorized to enter into the Agreement and bind the entity to these Terms.

3. Corporate Account Association

If you would like to associate your Corporate Account with a company name, we will do our best to confirm that association based on the information you provide to us. The more information you provide, the better able we will be to confirm that association. Information that helps us confirm a company's association with an account includes: the name of the business included at the time of acceptance of these Terms, the payment information, and the email addresses associated with the account. In the event that you do not provide sufficient information for us to confirm your company's association with the account, association will be determined by the email addresses and security settings within your account settings.

4. Corporate Account Requirements

We have a few simple rules for accounts on Humio:

  • You must be a human to create an account. Accounts registered by "bots" or other automated methods are not permitted.
  • One person or legal entity may maintain no more than one free account.
  • You may not create an account for the use of any User under the age of 18. Humio does not target our Service to children under 18, and we do not permit any Users under 18 on our Service. If we learn of any User under the age of 18, we will terminate that User’s account immediately.
  • Your login may only be used by one person — i.e., a single login may not be shared by multiple people. A paid organization account may create separate logins for as many users as its subscription allows.
  • Overall, the number of Users must not exceed the number of accounts you've ordered from us.

5. User Account Security

You are responsible for keeping your account secure while using Humio. The third party identity providers we integrate with (such as Google, GitHub and Bitbucket) offer tools such as two-factor authentication to help you maintain your account's security, but the content of your account and its security are up to you.

  • You are responsible for all content uploaded and activity that occurs under its account (even when content is posted by others who have accounts under your account).
  • You are responsible for maintaining the security of its account. Humio cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage from your failure to comply with this security obligation.
  • You will promptly notify Humio if you become aware of any unauthorized use of, or access to, our Service through your account, including any unauthorized use of your password or account.

6. Additional Terms

In some situations, third parties' terms may apply to your use of Humio. For example, you may be a member of a data space or organization on Humio with its own policies; you may download an application that integrates with Humio. Please be aware that while these Terms are our full agreement with you, other parties' terms govern their relationships with you.

C. Acceptable Use

Short version: While using the service, you must follow this Acceptable Use Policy, which includes some restrictions on content you can post, conduct on the service, and other limitations. In short, be excellent to each other.

1. Compliance with Laws and Regulations

  • contains personally sensitive information
  • is or contains sexually obscene content;
  • is libelous, defamatory, or fraudulent;

  • use our servers for any form of excessive automated bulk activity (for example, spamming), or relay any other form of unsolicited advertising or solicitation through our servers, such as get-rich-quick schemes;
  • attempt to disrupt or tamper with Humio's servers in ways that could harm our Website or Service, to place undue burden on Humio's servers through automated means, or to access Humio's Service in ways that exceed your authorization;
  • impersonate any person or entity, including any of our employees or representatives, including through false association with Humio, or by fraudulently misrepresenting your identity or site's purpose; or
  • violate the privacy of any third party, such as by posting another person's personal information without consent.

4. Services Usage Limits

You agree not to reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, resell or exploit any portion of the Service, use of the Service, or access to the Service without Humio's express written permission.

5. Privacy

Misuse of Humio Users' Personal Information is prohibited.

Any person, entity, or service collecting data from Humio must comply with the Humio Privacy Statement, particularly in regards to the collection of our Users' Personal Information (as defined in the Humio Privacy Statement). If you collect any Humio User's Personal Information from Humio, you agree that you will only use the Personal Information you gather for the purpose for which our User has authorized it. You agree that you will reasonably secure any Personal Information you have gathered from Humio.

7. Excessive Bandwidth Use

If we determine your bandwidth usage to be significantly excessive in relation to other Humio customers, we reserve the right to suspend your account or throttle your hosting until you can reduce your bandwidth consumption.

8. User Protection

You agree not to engage in activity that significantly harms our Users. We will resolve disputes in favor of protecting our Users as a whole.

D. User-Generated Content

Short version: You own the logs you upload (the content), but you allow us certain rights to it, so that we can display and share the content you post. You still have control over your content, and responsibility for it, and the rights you grant us are limited to those we need to provide the service. We have the right to remove content or close accounts if we need to.

1. Responsibility for User-Generated Content

You may create or upload User-Generated Content (log files or other data) while using the Service. You are solely responsible for the content of, and for any harm resulting from, any User-Generated Content that you or your Users post, upload or otherwise make available via the Service, regardless of the form of that Content. We are not responsible for any misuse of your User-Generated Content. You may not under no circumstances upload personally sensitive information to Humio.

2. Humio May Remove Content

We do not pre-screen User-Generated Content, but we have the right (though not the obligation) to refuse or remove any User-Generated Content that, in our sole discretion, violates any Humio terms or policies.

3. Ownership of Content, Right to Post, and License Grants

You retain ownership of and responsibility for Content you and your Users create or own ("Your Content"). If you're posting anything you or your Users did not create yourselves and on your behalf, or do not own the rights to, you agree that you and your Users are responsible for any of that Content; that you will only submit Content that you have the right to post; and that you will fully comply with any third party licenses relating to Content you post.

Because you retain ownership of and responsibility for Your Content, we need you to grant us — and other Humio users — certain legal permissions, listed in Sections D.4 — D.7. These license grants apply to Your Content. You understand that you will not receive any payment for any of the rights granted in Sections D.4 — D.7. The licenses you grant to us will end when you remove Your Content from our servers.

4. License Grant to Us

We need the legal right to do things like host Your Content, publish it, and share it. You grant us and our legal successors the right to store, parse, and display Your Content, and make incidental copies as necessary to render the Website and provide the Service. This includes the right to do things like copy it to our database and make backups; show it to you and other users; parse it into a search index or otherwise analyze it on our servers; share it with other users.

This license does not grant Humio the right to sell Your Content or otherwise distribute or use it outside of our provision of the Service.

5. License Grant to Other Users

Any User-Generated Content you or your Users post publicly using shared read-only dashboards may be viewed by anyone with whom you share the URL to such a dashboard.

If you create a shared read-only dashboard and share the URL with anyone, you grant each user of Humio a nonexclusive, worldwide license to use, and display Your Content through the Humio Service and to reproduce Your Content solely on Humio as permitted through Humio's functionality. If you are uploading Content you did not create or own, you are responsible for ensuring that the Content you upload is licensed under terms that grant these permissions to other Humio users.

6. Moral Rights

You retain all moral rights to Your Content that you or your Users upload, publish, or submit to any part of the Service, including the rights of integrity and attribution. However, you waive these rights and agree not to assert them against us, to enable us to reasonably exercise the rights granted in Section D.4, but not otherwise.

To the extent this agreement is not enforceable by applicable law, you grant Humio the rights we need to use Your Content without attribution and to make reasonable adaptations of Your Content as necessary to render the Website and provide the Service.

E. Data Spaces

Short version: You may have access to data spaces. We treat the content of data spaces as confidential, and we only access it for support reasons, with your consent, or if required to for security reasons.

1. Control of Data Spaces

Data spaces allow the User to control access to Content.

2. Confidentiality of Data Spaces

Humio considers the contents of data spaces to be confidential to you. Humio will protect the contents of private repositories from unauthorized use, access, or disclosure in the same manner that we would use to protect our own confidential information of a similar nature and in no event with less than a reasonable degree of care.

3. Access

Humio employees may only access the content of your private repositories in the following situations:

  • With your consent and knowledge, for support reasons. If Humio accesses a private repository for support reasons, we will only do so with the owner’s consent and knowledge.
  • When access is required for security reasons.

You may choose to enable additional access to your private repositories. For example:

  • You may enable various Humio services or features that require additional rights to Your Content in private repositories. These rights may vary depending on the service or feature, but Humio will continue to treat your private repository Content as confidential. If those services or features require rights in addition to those we need to provide the Humio Service, we will provide an explanation of those rights.
  • You may also grant a third-party application authorization to use, access, and disclose the contents of your private repositories. Your use of third-party applications is at your sole risk; Humio is not liable for disclosures to third parties that you authorize to access a private repository.

4. Exclusions

If we have reason to believe the contents of a private repository are in violation of the law or of these Terms, we have the right to access, review, and remove them. Additionally, we may be compelled by law to disclose the contents of your private repositories.

F. Intellectual Property Notice

Short version: We own the service and all of our content. In order for you to use our content, we give you certain rights to it, but you may only use our content in the way we have allowed.
