WHEREAS, Company and the Partner desire to enter into a referral agreement on the terms and conditions set forth herein.
NOW, THEREFORE, for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereby agree as follows:
Company hereby appoints the Partner and the Partner hereby agrees to become Company’s non-exclusive representative for the marketing of Company’s software (“Company Products”), and Company grants the Partner the non-exclusive right to market the Company Products during the term of this Agreement, subject to all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Partner’s sole authority will be to market the Products to, and solicit orders for the Products from, potential Referred Customers in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Partner will have no power or authority, expressed or implied, to make any commitment or incur any obligations on behalf of the Company. Partner will represent Company and the Company Products in a fair, accurate, and ethical manner.
If Company receives initial payment from a Referred Customer within 90 days of Company’s accepted submission of Partner’s referral, Company shall pay to Partner a Referral Fee in accordance with Exhibit A (the “Referral Commissions.”) “Referral Fee” shall mean the amounts actually collected during the Payment Term by Company for Company Products, excluding amounts collected for sales of Company professional services and amounts collected directly from Partner for resold Company Products. “Referred Customer” shall refer to a customer that first signs up for the Company Service through a website provided by Company to Partner or whose information is submitted to Company and accepted by Company via a lead form provided to Partner by Company. “Payment Term” means, with respect to each Referred Customer, the period beginning on the date that Company receives initial payment and ending 12 months thereafter. Company shall make the payments of aggregate Referral Fees to Partner within 30 days after the end of the month in which the corresponding revenue was collected by Company, together with a report showing the calculation of each Referral Fee in reasonable detail.
The Partner shall be an independent contractor of Company. The Partner’s representatives, agents and employees shall not represent themselves or act as employees of Company and shall not have the right or authority in any way to bind Company to any obligation to any third party, and they shall not assume or create in writing or otherwise evidence any obligation of any kind, express or implied, in the name of or on behalf of Company, unless specifically authorized to do so in writing by Company and in accordance with the conditions specified by Company. The Partner covenants that it shall be at all times an independent contractor, and that it shall do business at its own risk and for its own profit.
Term and Termination
The term of this Agreement begins on the date when Partner accepts the terms of the Agreement (the “Effective Date”) and continues until terminated as provided herein. Either party may terminate this Agreement for any reason at any time by written notice to the other party, including via email. Notwithstanding any termination, the obligation of Company to pay the Referral Fees shall survive the termination of this Agreement until the end of the last Payment Term unless the Agreement is terminated by Company for a material breach of this Agreement by Partner, in which case Company’s obligation to pay the Referral Fees shall end on the date of termination.
Publicity; Use of Name and Trademarks
[The Partner and Company may jointly choose to issue a joint press release disclosing the nature of the partnership between the parties, which press release shall be reviewed and approved by each of the parties prior to any such public issuance or disclosure, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed.] [Thereafter,] Neither party will issue any press releases nor make any public statements regarding this Agreement or the relationship between the parties without the prior written consent of the other party; provided, Partner shall be permitted to make statements to Qualified Prospects concerning the relationship of the parties and provide Company marketing materials to Qualified Prospects. Partner shall make no representation, guarantee or warranty concerning the Services except as expressly authorized in advance by Company in writing. Partner shall not issue any paid advertisements that utilize any trademarked phrases including “Justuno.” Subject to the terms of this Agreement, Company grants Partner the right to use and display the Company trademarks, service marks, tradenames designations of source and logos as specifically designated in a writing delivered by Company which references this Agreement and/or as used by Company in its advertising and marketing materials, on its website or otherwise as they may appear with respect to the Services (“Marks”) solely for the purposes set forth in this Agreement. All such use of the Marks shall be in accordance with Company’s trademark usage and quality control guidelines provided from time to time. Partner acknowledges that the Marks are the exclusive property of Company. Partner will not use, register or take other action with respect to any Mark anywhere in the world, except to the extent authorized in advance writing by Company. The Partner shall not (i) use Company’s name in either its own corporate name or any fictitious business name or (ii) use any trademarks, service marks, trade names or logos that are confusingly similar to Company’s trademarks, service marks, trade names or logos.
