Any code or scripts created by Autodesk during the provision of the Advisory Services (“Code Snippets”) are created solely for the purposes of validating the feasibility of Your enterprise or software architecture definition based on Autodesk Technology and are given as examples for explanatory and reference purposes only.
Code Snippets shall not be used by You in any code or for testing code. The Code Snippets provided to You are not suitable for use in production code and You should not depend on the Code Snippets in the operation of Your business.
The terms of this section supplement the terms set forth under the Agreement regarding Intellectual Property and they provide additional limitations regarding the license rights granted.
You and Autodesk will each assign an administrator who will be the single point of contact for You and Autodesk to discuss and plan the provision of the Advisory Services (“Administrator”). Our Administrators will coordinate and agree with You which Advisory Services will be performed, when they will be performed, the detailed work tasks for each type of Advisory Service, any preparation needed, and specific workplaces in the Advisory Locations. Our Administrators will discuss with You your requests for clarification on the Advisory Services Descriptions and review questions from You related to the Advisory Services.
The Administrators shall review any request You make to purchase additional Resource Utilization capacity or renew the Advisory Service, and such purchases shall be effective upon You and Autodesk signing an amendment to the Agreement and You issuing a purchase order.
The Administrators will meet by the 15th of each month during the Advisory Services term to agree on the Resource Utilization allocation and Advisory Services of the following month and where they will happen, except for the Resource Utilization allocation of the first month of the agreement, which will be agreed before the Service Start Date. Autodesk shall not perform Advisory Services until our Administrators agree which Advisory Services will be provided.
The Advisory Services starts on the Service Start Date and ends on the Service End Date specified in the Agreement. The Advisory Services will be provided for an amount of time up to the Resource Utilization percentage stated in the Agreement. Advisory Services will be received in the Advisory Locations, onsite or remote. Any changes to the Advisory Locations are made at the sole discretion of Autodesk.
Advisory Services are provided during the standard working week in the time zone of the Advisory Locations where the Advisory Services are scheduled to occur. The Advisory Services available to You will vary depending on the availability of Autodesk personnel who can deliver the type of service requested and on the Advisory Locations requested. You accept that at Autodesk’s discretion some Advisory Services may not be available, for instance due to the Advisory Locations or availability of resources. Autodesk may use a variety of personnel in performing the services and you will not have a dedicated resource.
The fees in the Agreement for the Advisory Services include travel and travel related expenses to the Advisory Locations.
Advisory Services are not available in all languages or in all Advisory Locations.
Your requests to renew the Advisory Services for an additional term must be received no less than 90 days prior to the Service End Date.

If You do not use all Your Resource Utilization before the Service End Date it shall expire automatically, and You are not entitled to any conversion, extension, or refund.
The following Assumptions and Customer Responsibilities apply to all Advisory Services:
Autodesk renders the Advisory Services and Outputs on an “as-is” basis and Autodesk is not responsible for the Outputs it creates.

You acknowledge and agree that no deliverables shall be produced via this service and that no acceptance criteria shall apply.
Autodesk personnel shall only assist Your teams by carrying out a service described in the Advisory Services Descriptions section above. As a part of this work, Autodesk personnel may also provide Advisory Services to Your production project teams; however, Autodesk personnel shall not work directly on production projects that You produce or intend to produce with Autodesk Technology.
Autodesk shall act based on the information that You provide. Autodesk does not commit to either specific outcomes or results when creating Outputs.
Our Administrators’ time is in included in the price of Advisory Services and does not consume Resource Utilization time.
Autodesk may choose to provide Advisory Services remotely from the location where they are received.

If You do not accept said revisions, You must notify Autodesk in writing within thirty (30) days of the date of Autodesk’s notification to You.
