Re: IP in the Sticky Cloud
Important question. Our terms are straightforward on this--customer data is the customers' IP and customer retains all rights to it.  We do make it easy for customers to export data whenever needed, and we always encrypt the data a customer stores in Snowflake.

IP in the Sticky Cloud
I'm curious what's in the ToS regarding Intellectual Property that's used in Snowflake's Cloud - once the client switches off the cloud, e.g. overnight, is it secured or can Snowflake terminate the account for nonpayment (if that is the case) and keep the data for itself?
