Notices and License Information

Published: October 1, 2020

Services Covered

This Documentation is applicable to the services branded as Heroku and the Heroku API (the "Heroku Services") provided by salesforce.com, inc. and /or its affiliates (collectively, "Salesforce").

Purpose of This Documentation

This Documentation describes certain features, restrictions, policies, and notices associated with any:

  • Information sourced from third parties or public sources and provided to customers via the Heroku Services;
  • Heroku Service functionality that allows customers to interact with third party products, services, platforms, data source, social media and other websites; and
  • desktop and mobile device software applications provided in connection with the Heroku Services.

See your Order Form(s) for additional terms that may apply to your use of the Heroku Services.

Customer Data

This documentation does not modify Salesforce's obligations with respect to Customer Data as defined in Salesforce's Master Subscription Agreement.

Acceptable Use and External Facing Services Policy

The Heroku Services are subject to the Acceptable Use and External-Facing Services Policy, as applicable.

Restricted Uses

  • Each user of the Heroku Services must have unique login credentials to the Heroku Services, except to the extent otherwise expressly permitted in the Documentation for the Heroku Services.
  • You may not, and may not permit any third party to, create accounts with automation or register accounts in bulk, in each case without the prior written approval of Salesforce.
  • You may not use the Heroku Services or any Heroku Elements (as defined below) in connection with peer-to-peer file sharing.
  • You may not directly or indirectly access or permit access to or use of the Heroku Services or any Heroku Element in a manner intended to avoid incurring fees.
  • You may perform penetration testing and security scanning on your applications running on the Heroku Services without prior consent from Salesforce, provided that these tests and scans must be low volume and not appear to be denial-of-service attacks, and must be performed in accordance with the Documentation.
  • You may not perform, and may not allow any third party to perform, load testing without first obtaining Salesforce's prior written consent (which may be given by email), as otherwise the load testing may be treated as denial-of-service attacks. Any load testing must follow the Heroku load testing guidelines available at https://devcenter.heroku.com/articles/load-testing-guidelines (or such URL as Salesforce may provide from time to time).

Limits & Quotas

  • Use of the Heroku Services is subject to certain hard and soft limits as set forth in the Documentation (e.g., here and here). Hard limits are automatically enforced by the Heroku Service. Soft limits are consumable resources that you agree not to exceed.
  • The Heroku Services do not permit you to exceed the hard limits. Salesforce reserves the right to enforce soft limits in its sole discretion, which may result in Salesforce serving a "quota exceeded" page or other notice to you or your users. Repeated exceeding of the hard or soft limits may lead to termination of your account.
  • Certain Heroku Services or resources may be provided to you without charge up to certain limits. Usage over the applicable limit requires your purchase of additional resources or services. The pricing for additional resources and services can be found at https://www.heroku.com/pricing (or such URL as Salesforce may provide from time to time).
