Forge Terms

Effecting starting: December 15, 2020

These Forge Terms apply if you use the Atlassian Platform to develop Forge Apps under the Atlassian Developer Terms (the "Terms"). The Terms apply to your use of the Forge Framework, subject to the below. Capitalized terms used but not defined in these Forge Terms have the meanings set out in the Terms.

1. Submission. To use Forge Apps with the Atlassian Platform, you must submit the Apps to Atlassian in accordance with the Developer Guidelines and our instructions. Without limiting your other obligations, you will not include any code licensed under any version of the GPL, Affero or other "copyleft" license in any Forge Apps.

2. Usage Limits. Forge Apps may be subject to usage limits (e.g., compute time) as designed by Atlassian in the Developer Guidelines at Currently use of our Forge Framework is limited to end users operating from their own Forge Apps in their Atlassian Product accounts.

3. Atlassian's Use of Forge Apps. In addition to its other rights, you grant Atlassian the right to access, host, use, copy, distribute, transmit, perform, and display your Forge Apps as necessary to enable their operation with Atlassian Products and to address support, security and performance issues.

4. End User Data. Though Atlassian hosts Forge Apps on your behalf, you must comply with Section 9 (End User Data & Security) of the Terms for any End User Data you or your Forge Apps process. Atlassian may access such End User Data in connection with exercising its rights in Secion 3 of these Forge Terms and otherwise use any Sensitive Personal Information with the Atlassian Platform unless its processing is expressly supported as a feature in the Developer Guidelines. Atlassian's data processing related to the hosting of Forge Apps (if any) is governed by the terms of any Data Processing Addendum ("DPA") in place between the parties. For clarity, solely within such DPA, Atlassian's hosting of Forge Apps is a "Cloud Product".
