3. TERM AND FEES

3.1     This Agreement shall become legally binding on the date of the last signature of the Order (“Commencement Date”). Your first invoice will be issued on the Commencement Date and we will prepare and configure your OnDemand Service once you have paid this first invoice in accordance with this Agreement. The date the OnDemand Services are made available for your use is the “Service Activation Date”, and we will confirm the Service Activation Date to you in writing. We target the Service Activation Date to be within 72 hours of our receipt of Fees from you in full in respect of the first invoice. Following the occurrence of the Service Activation Date and, unless earlier lawfully terminated, the Order shall thereafter continue for a period of one month (or such other term set out in the Order) from the Service Activation Date (“Initial Period”), and, unless written notice of non-renewal is provided in accordance with clause 2, shall automatically renew for further one month periods or as otherwise stated on the applicable Order (“Renewal Term”). When fully executed, each Order shall constitute a separate Agreement independent of any other Agreements created by any other Orders.

3.2     Without limiting any other right either of us may have under the Agreement, either of us may terminate this Agreement for convenience at the end of the then-current billing month by giving the other party written notice at least 7 days prior to the expiry of the relevant billing month. If such notice is not received by OnApp at least 7 days prior to the expiry of the then-current billing month, we will invoice, and you agree to pay for the next billing month and a further Renewal Term will apply as described in clause 1. You will be invoiced for Renewal Terms 7 days prior to the commencement of that Renewal Term

3.3     As consideration for the supply of the OnDemand Services by or on behalf of EsMe you shall pay EsMe the agreed fees in accordance with the applicable Order at the times and in the manner specified in it (“Fees”). Fees for OnDemand Services are payable by you in advance unless otherwise stated on the Order. Where additional usage charges apply as described in this Agreement (e.g. additional bandwidth charges), the same will be invoiced to you monthly in arrears as part of your next invoice for the OnDemand Service (or upon expiry or termination of this Agreement, a further final invoice). You agree to pay the undisputed portion of any disputed invoice pending resolution of any dispute. A dispute over one invoice shall not entitle you to delay or dispute payment in respect of another invoice or EsMe service or Agreement. The Fees owed to EsMe by you shall not be contingent upon your ability to collect any amounts from your own customers.

3.4     Except where agreed otherwise in an Order, we may amend the Fees applicable to your Order on 90 days’ written notice. Following expiry of such notice, EsMe may then amend its Fees effective upon the next renewal of an expiring of the Initial Period or the current Renewal Term (as applicable).

3.5     In the event that we terminate an Agreement for your breach or insolvency we shall be entitled to invoice immediately for all the minimum Fees that would have been payable during the then remaining balance of the period of each Order that forms part of that Agreement.

3.6     All amounts payable by you are exclusive of all sales taxes, use, excise, import or export, value added, governmental permit fees, license fees, and customs. If you are legally obliged under applicable tax law to withhold any amount of any payment to EsMe, then the amount of the payment to EsMe shall be automatically increased to totally offset such tax, so that the amount actually remitted to EsMe, net of all taxes, equals the amount invoiced or otherwise due.  You will promptly furnish OnApp with the official receipt of payment of these taxes to the appropriate taxing authority.  You shall provide EsMe with a certificate of exemption acceptable to an applicable taxing authority, where required.

3.7     All payments made by you must be received by EsMe in cleared funds by the due date set out in the relevant Order for which purpose time shall be of the essence. No payments due to EsMe shall be subject to any setoff, counterclaim, withholding or deduction except as is mandatory under applicable law and subject to the other provisions of the applicable Agreement. EsMe shall be entitled to set off and cross-collateralise between each of your balances if more than one. If you do not pay the invoices when due, EsMe may charge interest at one percent (1%) per month on the unpaid balance between the date due and the date paid. 

4. SERVICES 

4.1         Your OnDemand Service will be identified in the relevant Order. You may, at any time, add the units of OnDemand Service set out in the Order by agreeing the relevant change with your EsMe account manager. Any resulting change to your fees will be pro-rated for the remainder of the relevant billing month and will then take effect in full from the start of your next billing month.

4.2.1      provide the OnDemand Service to you (and your authorised users set out in the Order) on the terms of this Agreement;
