THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS (“Terms and Conditions”) are part of a binding agreement between IronYun Inc. USA, a Delaware corporation, solely on behalf of itself along with its affiliates and subsidiaries (together, “IronYun”), and the individual or legal entity accepting the Terms and Conditions (“Customer”), and applies to Customer’s use of IronYun’s software licenses and related products and services (the “Products”). IronYun and Customer may be referred to herein as a “Party” and collectively as the “Parties”.
These Terms and Conditions, the Purchase Order(s) (as defined below), and the End User License Agreement governing Customer’s use of the Products (“EULA”) are collectively referred to as the “Agreement” and form a binding agreement between IronYun and Customer.
Article 1 – Products; Term and Renewal; Pricing; Replacements
1.1 Purchase Order. Customer shall buy, and IronYun shall sell to the Customer, the Products by submitting a signed purchase order in a form approved by IronYun (a “Purchase Order”). CUSTOMER’S SUBMISSION OF A PURCHASE ORDER SHALL REPRESENT CUSTOMER’S ACCEPTANCE OF AND AGREEMENT TO BE BOUND BY THE AGREEMENT. Purchase orders need only be executed by Customer. The provision of a Product by IronYun shall indicate its acceptance of the applicable Purchase Order. Customer acknowledges that it is solely responsible for the accuracy of all Purchase Orders and other information that it provides IronYun from time to time. Customer understands and acknowledges that certain taxes, fees, or surcharges associated with a Product may not be quoted in the Purchase Order.
1.2 Credit Information. Customer authorizes IronYun to obtain any credit information necessary to establish Customer’s account. Customer authorizes release of such information by any and all third parties to IronYun and its affiliates. IronYun reserves the right in its sole discretion to decline new Purchase Orders and require that Customer post appropriate advance payments for new and existing Products. Any required pre-payments must be paid to IronYun within seven (7) days.
1.3 Term and Renewal; Termination Notice. The initial term for each Product sold on a subscription basis shall be set forth in the applicable Purchase Order (the “Initial Term”). The Initial Term shall begin on the date that IronYun notifies Customer that the Product has been activated (“Product Date”). Unless a Party provides the other Party written notice of termination at least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the then-current Term (the “Termination Notice Period”), the term of each Purchase Order shall automatically continue in full force for successive renewal terms that are equivalent to the Initial Term (each a “Renewal Term”, with the Initial and the Renewal Term collectively referred to herein as the “Term”); however, in such case Customer shall be obligated to pay IronYun the early termination charges as set forth in Article 3.2 of this Agreement. In all such cases, billing for a Product shall continue until the end of the Termination Notice Period.
1.4 Pricing. The prices or rates for all Products shall be set forth in the Purchase Order.
1.5 Product Replacements: In the event that any Product is found to be defective and improperly working upon receipt, IronYun shall use its commercially reasonable and expedient efforts to ship, at IronYun’s sole expense, a replacement Product to Customer, and Customer shall return the original Product to IronYun at IronYun’s sole expense. All Products not rejected by Customer within thirty (30) days of receipt shall be deemed accepted.
Article 2 – Payment; Disputes; Fraud; Taxes and Surcharges
2.1 Billing Commencement; Withholding; Tax Exemption. Customer’s obligation to begin paying for the Products according to the frequency set forth in the applicable Purchase Order starts on the Product Date. IronYun shall bill Customer according to the terms of the Purchase Order in advance for all recurring charges, non-recurring upfront charges, and all applicable taxes, fees and surcharges. Usage-based charges and other non-recurring charges will be invoiced by IronYun in arrears. All payments made by Customer must be made without deduction or withholding for or on account of any tax. In the event and to the extent that Customer believes it is exempt under applicable law from any tax, Customer shall provide IronYun an appropriate tax exemption certificate, in a form reasonably acceptable to IronYun and to the relevant jurisdiction, demonstrating that it maintains tax exempt status from collection of all or part of the taxes. In the event that Customer provides a tax exemption certificate in accordance with the preceding sentence, it shall be effective as of the date of receipt by IronYun. If Customer has not provided any such certificate, IronYun shall be entitled to include on any invoice, and Customer shall be obligated to pay, any lawfully imposed tax.
2.2 Invoicing; Payment Terms; Late Payment. All invoices are due upon receipt, payable in U.S. dollars by company check, ACH, wire transfer, or credit card. Unless different terms are set forth on the applicable Purchase Order, if Customer fails to pay any amount within thirty (30) days of the applicable invoice date, then, in addition to any other remedies available to IronYun under the Agreement, IronYun may charge interest on overdue amounts at a rate of one-and-one-half percent (1.5%) per month until the sum is paid in full. Payments will be applied to Customer’s account in accordance with Customer’s written remittance instructions. If no remittance instructions are provided, payments will be applied to the oldest outstanding balance on Customer’s account. Customer will be responsible to IronYun for any expenses including all collection costs incurred by IronYun to collect overdue charges. Customer shall pay to IronYun a fee of twenty-five dollars (US$25.00) for each returned check or other rejected payment. If IronYun reinstates any Product that has been suspended, IronYun may charge Customer a reinstatement fee.
2.3 Back Billing. IronYun will endeavor to bill Customer for Products on a timely basis. However, unless proscribed by law, Customer shall be liable for all charges irrespective of any delay in billing. No such delay shall constitute a basis for a claim of waiver, estoppel or other excuse of Customer’s obligation to pay for Products provided irrespective of the length of delay. Nothing in the Agreement shall toll the running of any statute of limitations applicable to such obligations.
2.4 Disputes. Customer may in good faith dispute an invoice or a portion of an invoice by providing written notice to IronYun within sixty (60) days from the date of the applicable invoice. To be valid, any dispute must be accompanied by documentation supporting the dispute. If Customer fails to pay the undisputed charges by the applicable due date, IronYun may, without further notice, exercise its rights set forth in the Agreement. If IronYun does not receive written notification of a dispute within such sixty (60) day period, Customer shall be deemed to have waived its right to dispute such charges for any reason. IronYun will attempt to respond to any dispute within thirty (30) days of its receipt of such written dispute with its determination of the validity of the dispute and, if an adjustment to the disputed charges is required, IronYun shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to make any such changes within sixty (60 days following its determination. Acceptance of late or partial payments shall not waive any of IronYun’s rights. In the event a dispute is resolved against Customer, Customer shall pay the total amount withheld, plus interest as set forth herein from the date the payment was due, within five (5) business days of IronYun’s determination.
2.5 Obligation to Pay. Customer expressly acknowledges and agrees that it shall make payment in full to IronYun for all Products provided by IronYun to Customer pursuant to the Agreement and properly billed to Customer. It is the express intention of the Parties that Customer and not IronYun shall bear the risk of any unauthorized or fraudulent use of the Products.
2.6 Taxes, Fees, Surcharges. The Products may be subject to a combination of fees and federal, state or local taxes or surcharges. IronYun may add line items to Customer’s invoice for such items that IronYun is required to collect and remit to governmental entities in connection with the Products.
Article 3 – Termination; Suspension of Product; Early Termination
3.1 Termination; Suspension of Products. IronYun may terminate any and all Products or suspend Products without any liability to Customer at any time if Customer (a) if Customer fails to timely pay any amounts when due; (b) Customer fails to perform or comply with any obligation under the Agreement; (c) Customer or anyone using the Products fails to comply with or violates the EULA (as defined herein); (d) Customer files for bankruptcy or insolvency or a trustee or receiver is appointed over all or some of Customer’s assets, or (e) IronYun determines that Customer has resold or otherwise transferred the Products or associated software in violation of the Agreement (each a “Termination for Breach”).
3.2 Early Termination. In the event of a Termination for Breach or Customer elects to terminate any Product following its execution of an applicable Purchase Order, but prior to the expiration of the Term, without cause, Customer shall pay, in addition to any amounts owed to IronYun through the effective date of such termination, an early termination fee equal to (a) fifty percent (50%) of the pro-rated charges remaining in the Term plus (b) any previously-waived non-recurring charges and/or any promotional credits provided to Customer in connection with its purchase of the terminated Products (the “Early Termination Fee”). Customer acknowledges and agrees that the Early Termination Fee is a genuine estimate of the loss and damage likely to be suffered by IronYun and is not a penalty. Any applicable Early Termination Fee shall be paid by Customer within thirty (30) days of the date of the applicable invoice including the Early Termination Fee.
