LAST UPDATED: APRIL 1, 2023

These Subscriber Terms apply to new Order Forms (or renewals of existing Order Forms) effective on or after April 1, 2023.

If you are an existing Customer and previously agreed to a version of the Subscriber Agreement or Master Subscription Agreement (as applicable) before April 1, 2023, these Subscriber Terms will go into effect upon the renewal date of your next Order Form. The prior versions of the Subscriber Agreement and of the Master Subscription Agreement are available here. If you have a separate written agreement with Asana on this subject matter, these online Subscriber Terms will not apply to you.


These Subscriber Terms (“Agreement") are between Asana, Inc. (“Asana”) and the party identified as the customer in the applicable Order Form (“Customer”) and is effective as of the date the parties enter into an Order Form incorporating these terms (the “Effective Date”).

In the event of a conflict, an exhibit, attachment, addendum, or Order Form prevails over this Agreement. 

1. Definitions

1.1 “Affiliate” means any entity that Controls, is Controlled by, or is under common Control with the Asana or the Customer entity agreeing to these terms, where “Control” means ownership of more than 50% of the voting interests of the subject entity or having the power to direct or cause the direction of the management and policies of an entity, whether through ownership, by contract, or otherwise.

1.2 “Customer Data” means all information that Customer or its End Users submit to the Service.

1.5 “Order Form” means an ordering document or an online order, including a trial, entered into between Customer and Asana (or Affiliates of either party) specifying the Service or Professional Services to be provided pursuant to this Agreement. Each Order Form is a stand-alone agreement, separate from any other Order Form, incorporating the terms and conditions of this Agreement by reference.

1.6 “Professional Services” means the customer success services provided by Asana or its subcontractor as specified in the applicable Order Form.

1.7 “Service” means Asana’s collaboration work management software as a service platform to be provided pursuant to the applicable Order Form.

1.8 “Subscription” means the access to and use of the Service on a per End User basis.

1.9 “Subscription Term” means the period of time for the Subscription identified in the applicable Order Form, including thereafter each renewal term.

2. The Service

2.1 Provision of the Service and Availability. Asana will make the Service available to Customer during the applicable Subscription Term pursuant to this Agreement. Asana may update the content, functionality, and user interface of the Service from time to time provided such update will not materially decrease the functionality of the Service during the applicable Subscription Term. Customer agrees that its use of the Service under this Agreement is not contingent on the delivery of future features or functionality.

2.2 Access Rights. Asana grants Customer a non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, non-transferable (except as specifically permitted in Section 11.8) right to access and use (and to grant access and use of the Service to its End Users) the Service during the applicable Subscription Term, solely for Customer’s internal business purposes, and subject to an applicable Order Form.

2.3 Affiliates. In addition to any access rights a Customer Affiliate may have as an End User of Customer, a Customer Affiliate may separately acquire Subscriptions and/or Professional Services pursuant to this Agreement by entering into an Order Form, and in each such case, all references in this Agreement to the Customer will be deemed to refer to the applicable Affiliate for purposes of that Order Form.

2.4 Acceptable Use Terms. Customer will not (a) make the Service available to anyone other than Customer and its End Users or use the Service for the benefit of anyone other than Customer or its Affiliates; (b) rent, sublicense, re-sell, assign, distribute, time share or similarly exploit the Service (including allowing its employees or employees of its Affiliates to access the Service as guests instead of acquiring End User Subscriptions for such employees); (c) reverse engineer, copy, modify, adapt, or hack the Service; (d) access the Service, the Documentation, or Asana’s Confidential Information to develop a product or service in competition with the Service; (e) allow End User Subscriptions to be shared or used by more than one individual End User (except that End User Subscriptions may be reassigned to new End Users replacing individuals who no longer use the Service for any purpose); (f) use the Service to violate any applicable law, any third party’s intellectual property rights, or anyone’s right of privacy or publicity; (g) or use the Service to create, use, send, store, or run viruses, bots, worms, or similar harmful material. Asana may request that Customer suspend the account of any End User who: (i) violates this Agreement; or (ii) is using the Service in a manner that Asana reasonably believes may cause a security risk or a disruption to others’ use of the Service. If Customer fails to promptly suspend or terminate such an End User’s account, Asana reserves the right to do so.

2.5 Security; Protection of Customer Data. Asana will implement and maintain reasonable administrative, organizational, and technical safeguards designed for the protection, confidentiality, and integrity of Customer Data at least as rigorous as the measures described in the Data Security Standards available at https://asana.com/terms/security-standards. Asana reserves the right to modify the Data Security Standards from time to time provided such modification will not materially and adversely diminish the overall security of the Service during the applicable Subscription Term. In addition, either the Asana Data Processing Addendum, available at https://asana.com/terms/data-processing, or a separately executed Data Processing Addendum (either of the aforementioned, as applicable “DPA”), will apply to any Customer Personal Data (as such term is defined in the DPA) included in Customer Data.

2.6 Administration of Customer’s Account. Customer acknowledges that it retains administrative control over to whom it grants access to Customer Data hosted in the Service. Customer may specify one or more End Users as administrators (each an “Administrator”) to manage its account, and Asana is entitled to rely on communications from such Administrators and other Customer employees when servicing Customer’s account. Customer is responsible for use of the Service by its End Users and for their compliance with this Agreement. Customer is solely responsible for the accuracy, quality, and legality of Customer Data. Customer will promptly notify Asana if it becomes aware of any unauthorized use or access to Customer’s account or the Service.

2.7 Customer’s Use of Third Party Services. Customer may install or enable third party services for use with the Service, such as online applications, offline software products, or services that utilize the Asana application programming interface (“API”) or otherwise connect with the Service (“Third Party Services”). Any use by Customer or its End Users of such Third Party Services is solely the responsibility of Customer and the applicable third party provider. To the extent Customer authorizes the access or transmission of Customer Data through a Third Party Service, such Third Party Service terms will govern. In no event will Asana be responsible for, any use, disclosure, modification or deletion of such Customer Data or for any act or omission on the part of such third party provider or its services.

3. Representations and Warranties

3.1 Mutual Warranties. Each party represents and warrants that it will comply with all laws, rules, and regulations applicable to the exercise of its rights and performance of its obligations under this Agreement.

3.2 By Asana.

3.2.1 Service Warranties. Asana warrants that during the Subscription Term, the Service will materially conform with the Documentation. If any non-conformity to the Documentation persists without relief more than thirty (30) days after Customer’s notice of the non-conformity and if Asana is unable to correct the non-conformity in the Service within thirty (30) days following receipt of written notice of breach, then Customer may terminate the applicable Order Form and, as Customer’s exclusive remedy, receive a refund of any prepaid, unused fees applicable to the remaining portion of the Subscription Term measured from the effective date of termination.

3.2.2 Professional Services Warranty. Asana warrants that the Professional Services will be performed in a professional and workmanlike manner using resources with the requisite skills, experience, and knowledge. In the event that Customer believes Asana has breached this warranty, Customer must provide written notice to Asana within thirty (30) days of Asana’s performance of any nonconforming Professional Services, and as Customer’s exclusive remedy, Asana will, at its option (a) re-perform the applicable Professional Services that fail to meet this warranty, or (b) refund to Customer the fees paid for the non-conforming Professional Services.

3.2.3 Malicious Code. Asana warrants that it has implemented appropriate technical measures and updates the Service periodically to prevent the introduction of software viruses, worms, logic bombs, Trojan horses or other code, files, or scripts intended to do harm to the Service.

3.3 By Customer. Customer represents and warrants that it is entitled to transfer the Customer Data to Asana so that Asana and its authorized third party service providers may lawfully use, process, and transfer the Customer Data in accordance with this Agreement on Customer’s behalf.

3.4 Disclaimer. The warranties set forth in this Section 3 are the exclusive warranties from Asana and, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, Asana does not make any additional warranties of any kind, whether express, implied, statutory, or otherwise, including warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular use, noninfringement, or error-free or uninterrupted use of the Service or Professional Services. Asana warranties will not apply in the event of misuse or modification of the Service by Customer and End Users, or failure to comply with instructions provided by Asana. Asana makes beta, trial, proof of concept, and “sandbox” versions of the Service available as-is without warranties of any kind.

4. Payment

4.1 Payment. Customer will pay all undisputed amounts due under the applicable Order Form within thirty (30) days of invoice date. If Customer disputes any part of an invoice in good faith, Customer will pay the undisputed part and provide Asana with notice and detail of the dispute no later than the invoice due date. Amounts due are payable in the currency set forth in the applicable invoice and are non-cancelable and non-refundable unless otherwise provided in this Agreement. Customer is responsible for providing complete and accurate billing information to Asana, including the purchase order number at the time of purchase if Customer requires one. Asana reserves the right to suspend Customer’s account in the event that Customer’s account becomes overdue and is not brought current within ten (10) business days following notice. Unpaid amounts may be subject to interest at the lesser of 1.5% per month or the maximum permitted by law plus collection costs. Suspension will not relieve Customer’s obligation to pay amounts due. For transactions where Customer is permitted to make payment via credit card, Customer agrees that, if eligible, Asana may update Customer's payment information through the use of account refresher services provided by third party payment processors.

4.2 End User Subscriptions. Unless otherwise specified in an Order Form, Subscription fees are based on annual periods (or pro rata portions of annual periods). Subscriptions to the Service are sold in tiers based on the number of End Users. Customer may add End Users to their Subscription at any time on written notice to Asana (email notice acceptable). Asana reserves the right to calculate the total number of End Users on a periodic basis, and, if such number exceeds Customer’s current plan size, Asana reserves the right to invoice Customer for the tier that corresponds to the number of End Users on a pro rata basis for the remaining months in Customer’s then-current annual Subscription Term, so that all End User Subscription Terms are coterminous. If Customer wishes to (i) reduce the number of paid-for End Users under the applicable Subscription or (ii) downgrade to a lower Subscription plan, Customer must provide Asana with written notice (in-app notification or email acceptable) at least thirty (30) days prior to the end of the then-current Term; and Asana will reflect such reduction and/or downgrade within Customer’s billable account on the Renewal Date (as defined below), if applicable.

4.3 Taxes. Any fees charged to Customer are exclusive of taxes. Except for those taxes based on Asana’s net income, Customer will be responsible for all applicable taxes in connection with this Agreement including, but not limited to, sales, use, excise, value-added, goods and services, consumption, and other similar taxes or duties. If any withholding is required by law, Customer will pay Asana any additional amounts necessary to ensure that the net amount that Asana receives, after any such withholding, equals the amount Asana would have received if no withholding had been applied. Upon request, Customer will provide documentation showing that the withheld amounts have been paid to the relevant taxing authority. Asana’s failure to charge appropriate tax due to incomplete or incorrect information provided by Customer will not relieve Customer of its obligations under this Section 4.3 (Taxes). If Customer is exempt from certain taxes, Customer will provide proof of such exemption to Asana without undue delay upon execution of the applicable Order Form.

4.4 Auto-renewal. Unless otherwise stated in the applicable Order Form, Customer agrees that its Subscription will automatically renew at the end of the then-current Subscription Term (the “Renewal Date”) for a renewal period equal to the original Subscription Term, at Asana's then current rates. Customer authorizes Asana to automatically charge Customer for the applicable fees on or after the Renewal Date unless the Subscription has been terminated or canceled by Customer at least thirty (30) days prior to the Renewal Date. If Customer chooses to cancel its Subscription during the Subscription Term, Customer may use the Service until the end of Customer’s then-current Subscription Term, but without any right to a refund or credit for such remaining period of the Subscription Term.

5. Term and Termination

5.1 Term. This Agreement commences on the Effective Date and will remain in effect until expiration or termination in accordance with its terms. Any Order Form executed hereunder remains governed by this Agreement for its applicable Subscription Term or Professional Services term, irrespective of any earlier termination or expiration of this Agreement. Termination or expiration of this Agreement does not automatically terminate any applicable Order Form.

5.2 Termination. Either party may terminate this Agreement and/or any Order Form: (a) upon thirty (30) days written notice if the other party is in material breach of this Agreement and fails to cure such breach within the notice period, (b) with immediate effect upon receipt of notice in the event of a breach of Section 2.4 (Acceptable Use Terms); or (c) with immediate effect if the other party ceases its business operations or becomes subject to insolvency proceedings and the proceedings are not dismissed within sixty (60) days.

5.3 Effect of Termination. Upon expiration or termination of this Agreement and/or the applicable Order Form for any reason, all Subscriptions and any other rights granted to Customer under such terminated Order Form will immediately terminate, and Customer will immediately cease to use the Service. Upon termination of an applicable Order Form by Customer pursuant to Section 5.2, Asana will refund to Customer a prorated amount of prepaid, unused fees applicable to the remaining portion of the Subscription Term measured from the effective date of termination. In no event will any termination relieve Customer of the obligation to pay any fees accrued or payable to Asana for the Service or Professional Services in the period prior to the effective date of termination. Any terms that by their nature extend beyond the Agreement termination remain in effect until fulfilled and apply to successors and assignees.

5.4 Treatment of Customer Data Following Expiration or Termination. Customer agrees that following expiration or termination of all Subscriptions under the Agreement, Asana may immediately deactivate Customer’s account(s) associated with such Agreement. Asana will make Customer Data available to Customer for export in accordance with the Documentation as long as Asana receives written notice within thirty (30) days after the effective date of expiration or termination from Customer regarding its intent to import such Customer Data. After such thirty (30) day period, Asana will have no obligation to retain Customer Data and will thereafter, unless legally prohibited, be entitled to delete all Customer Data in its systems or otherwise in its possession or under its control. Subject to any limitations in Customer’s Service configuration, upon Customer’s request at datadeletions@asana.com, Asana will, within one-hundred and eighty (180) days of receipt of such request, securely destroy all Customer Data from its systems; provided that all back-ups will be deleted within thirty (30) days after such one-hundred and eighty (180) day period.

6. Confidentiality

6.1 Definition of Confidential Information. During the course of performance under this Agreement, each party may make available to the other party information that is identified as, or should reasonably be understood by the receiving party to be, proprietary or confidential (the “Confidential Information”). Confidential Information specifically includes this Agreement, the Service, Order Form(s), Customer Data, business plans, product plans and roadmaps, strategies, forecasts, projects and analyses, financial information and fee structures, business processes, methods and models, and technical documentation.

6.2 Protection of Confidential Information. The receiving party will use the same care and discretion to avoid disclosure, publication, or dissemination of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information as it uses with its own similar information that it does not wish to disclose, publish or disseminate, but in no event less than a reasonable degree of care. The receiving party may disclose Confidential Information to its employees, Affiliates, consultants, subcontractors, or advisors who have a need to know such Confidential Information for the purpose of performing under this Agreement and only to those who are obligated to maintain the confidentiality of such Confidential Information upon terms at least as protective as those contained in this Agreement. If the parties entered into a non-disclosure agreement prior to executing this Agreement, the terms of this Section 6 (Confidentiality) will control in the event of any conflict or inconsistency.

6.3 Equitable Relief. In the event of a breach of this Section 6 (Confidentiality), the disclosing party may seek appropriate equitable relief in addition to any other remedy.

6.4 Compelled Disclosure. The receiving party may disclose Confidential Information to the extent required by law or court order. However, subject to applicable law, the receiving party will give the disclosing party prompt notice to allow the disclosing party a reasonable opportunity to obtain a protective order.

7. Intellectual Property Rights

7.1 Asana Ownership. As between the parties, Asana and its licensors exclusively own all right, title, and interest in and to all intellectual property rights in the Service. Customer’s use of the Service will not affect Asana’s ownership or license rights in the Service.

7.2 Customer Ownership. As between the parties, Customer and its licensors will retain all right, title, and interest in and to all intellectual property rights in Customer Data. Customer grants to Asana a royalty-free, fully paid, non-exclusive, non-transferrable (except under Section 11.8), worldwide, right to use Customer Data solely to provide and support the Service. Asana and its authorized third party service providers may use, host, store, backup, transmit, and display Customer Data to (a) provide the Service and Professional Services under this Agreement and (b) improve the Service as long as neither Customer nor its End Users are publicly identified.

7.3 Feedback. If Customer submits any feedback to Asana regarding the Service or Professional Services, Asana may use such feedback for any purpose without any compensation or obligation to Customer provided such use does not violate Section 6 (Confidentiality).

8. Indemnification

8.1 If a third party asserts a claim against Customer that the Service as acquired under the Agreement infringes a patent or copyright (“IP Claim”), Asana will (a) defend Customer against that claim and (b) pay amounts finally awarded by a court against Customer or included in a settlement approved by Asana. To obtain such defense and payment by Asana, Customer must promptly (i) notify Asana in writing of the claim, (ii) supply information requested by Asana, and (iii) allow Asana to control, and reasonably cooperate in, the defense and settlement, including mitigation efforts.

8.2 In connection with any IP Claim, Asana may: (1) contest the IP Claim; (2) obtain claimant’s permission for Customer’s continued use of the applicable Service; (3) replace Customer’s access to or use of the applicable Service with substantially similar functionality that avoids the IP Claim; or (4) if Asana determines the foregoing clauses (1), (2), and (3) are commercially impracticable, terminate Customer’s access to and use of the affected Service on sixty (60) days’ prior notice and refund any prepaid subscription fees covering that part of the applicable Subscription Term for such Service measured from the effective date of termination.

8.3 Asana has no responsibility for claims based on non-Asana products and services, items not provided by Asana, or any violation of law or third party rights caused by Customer Data or other Customer materials.

8.4 If a third party asserts a claim against Asana that Customer Data infringes a patent or copyright or violates a privacy right, Customer will (a) defend Asana against that claim and (b) pay amounts finally awarded by a court against Asana or included in a settlement approved by Customer. To obtain such defense and payment by Customer, Asana must promptly (i) notify Customer in writing of the claim, (ii) supply information requested by Customer, and (iii) allow Customer to control, and reasonably cooperate in, the defense and settlement, including mitigation efforts.
