The parties to this Agreement are you and Branch Metrics, Inc. (“Branch”).
By reporting a vulnerability, you affirm that you have not disclosed and agree that you will not disclose the vulnerability to anyone other than Branch. Absent Branch’s prior written consent, any disclosure outside of this process would violate this Agreement. You agree that money damages may not be a sufficient remedy for a breach of this paragraph by you and that Branch may be entitled to specific performance as a remedy for any such breach. Such remedy will not be deemed to be the exclusive remedy for any such breach but will be in addition to all other remedies available at law or equity to Branch.
By reporting a vulnerability, you are granting Branch a worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive license to use your submission for the purpose of addressing the vulnerability in Branch’s products and services.

Branch may choose not to remediate at its sole discretion.
