AGREEMENT TO TERMS
This PRIVATE LABEL APP AGREEMENT (“Agreement”) is effective as of the date set forth on the signature page hereto (“Effective Date”) and is by and between Action Data Systems, LLC (“Action”) and the undersigned client (“Client”). This Agreement, along with the schedules and exhibits and the sales proposal from sales meetings ("sales proposal") hereto, constitutes the complete agreement of the parties relating to the subject matter hereof and supersedes any prior representations or agreements. Any reproduction of this Agreement made by reliable means, whether signed manually or electronically, shall have the same effect as an original. No amendment to this Agreement, or waiver of any terms hereof, shall be effective unless agreed by the parties in writing.
- PRIVATE LABEL APP
During the Term, Action will design, develop, maintain and host a private-label iOS and Android mobile app (the “App”) populated with content and data provided by Client (“Client Data”) and containing the features set forth on Exhibit A and Exhibit B(the “Services”), to be available to end-users through the Apple Store and Google Play (collectively, the “App Store”). The Services will include submission of the App to the App Store and use of commercially reasonable efforts to obtain approval for the App to be distributed to end-users on the App Store; provided that, if the App Store denies approval on account of the Client Data, the Client will make changes to the Client Data as necessary to obtain the App Store’s approval. Action will provide updates, modifications, and improvements to the App from time to time and will refresh the content of the App, based on new Client Data provided by Client, as set forth on Exhibit A and Exhibit B. Client has a nonexclusive, nontransferable right and license to market the App to Client’s customers and visitors (“Visitors”). Action’s relationship with Visitors will be governed by a separate end user agreement between Action and each Visitor. Client shall have sole responsibility for ownership of, the accuracy, quality, integrity, legality, reliability, and appropriateness of all Client Data. Client grants to Action a non-exclusive, royalty-free, non-transferable (except as provided in Section 12) and sublicensable license, during the Term, to reproduce, perform, display, transmit and distribute the Client Data through the Service on the App. The foregoing license includes the right to permit end-users to access the Client Data utilizing the App. Subject to the foregoing license, Client retains all ownership and intellectual property rights in the Client Data. Client represents and warrants that it is the owner of the Client Data and that the Client Data will not infringe, misappropriate or violate any intellectual property rights or other rights of any third party and will not violate any law.
The client agrees to pay the fees (the “Action Fees”) set forth during the sales meetings. The client shall pay all invoices within fifteen (15) days of the invoice date. Except as expressly set forth in this Agreement, all Action Fees are nonrefundable.
In the event of any late payment, Client shall be obligated to pay, in addition to any payment due, the amount of 1.5% interest per month, or the highest rate permitted by applicable law, whichever is less, on any outstanding account balance.
- TERM AND TERMINATION
The term of this Agreement (the “Initial Term”) shall begin upon the Effective Date and shall continue in force for the length of time set forth in the sales proposal. This Agreement will automatically renew for the length of time set forth in the sales proposal unless earlier terminated pursuant to the express provisions of this Agreement or either party gives the other party written notice of non-renewal at least sixty (60) days prior to the expiration of the then-current term (each a “Renewal Term” and, collectively, together with the Initial Term, the “Term”). Either party may terminate this Agreement upon written notice to the other party if such other party is in breach of any material term or condition of this Agreement (including without limitation failure to pay any Action Fee) and has not cured such breach within a period of thirty (30) days after receipt of written notice from the non-breaching party of such breach, provided that such period shall automatically be extended for an additional thirty (30) days if the breaching party is not in breach of any payment obligation under this Agreement and is diligently working to cure such breach.
Either party may terminate this Agreement immediately on written notice to the other party if such other party becomes insolvent, makes a general assignment for the benefit of creditors, files a voluntary petition of bankruptcy, suffers or permits the appointment of a receiver for its business or assets, or becomes subject to any proceedings under any bankruptcy or insolvency law, whether domestic or foreign or has wound up or liquidated, voluntarily or otherwise.

- CONFIDENTIALITY; PUBLICITY
Each party (the “Receiving Party”) shall keep, and shall cause its employees and agents to keep, confidential any and all Confidential Information of the other party (the “Disclosing Party”) in the same manner as it protects its own confidential information of like kind, but in no event shall it exercise less than due diligence and care. “Confidential Information” means (i) all information that the Receiving Party receives from the Disclosing Party that is marked as confidential or proprietary, or that would, by the nature of the information or the manner in which it is disclosed, be reasonably deemed confidential; and (ii) the terms and conditions of this Agreement, including without limitation the Action Fees.

Upon termination of this Agreement, the Receiving Party shall return or deliver to the Disclosing Party or shall certify to the Disclosing Party that it has destroyed, all Confidential Information. The Receiving Party acknowledges that due to the unique value of the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party, in the event of any breach of this Section by the Receiving Party, the Disclosing Party may not have an adequate remedy at law and shall be entitled to enforce its rights hereunder by an action for specific performance and injunctive or other equitable relief without the necessity of proving actual damage or posting a bond.
Neither party shall issue or release any announcement, statement, press release or other publicity or marketing material relating to this Agreement or otherwise use the other party’s trademarks, service marks, trade names, logos, domain names or other indicia of source, affiliation or sponsorship, in each case, without the prior written consent of the other party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed; provided, however, that Action may, without Client’s consent, include Client’s name, logo and/or other indicia in its lists of Action’s current or former customers in promotional and marketing materials.

Client shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless Action from and against all third party losses awarded against Action in a final judgment based on a claim of (i) Client’s material breach of any representation, warranty or obligation of Client as set forth in this Agreement; or (ii) Action’s use of Client Data.
- LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
In the event of termination of this Agreement by either party pursuant to Section 3 hereof, Client shall be entitled to receive, as its sole and exclusive remedy, a pro-rata refund of Client’s prepaid Action Fee, and upon such refund, Action shall have no further liability to Client. This remedy is in lieu of all other remedies, whether oral or written, express or implied. IN NO EVENT SHALL ACTION’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR BASED UPON THIS AGREEMENT REGARDLESS OF THE FORM IN WHICH ANY LEGAL OR EQUITABLE ACTION MAY BE BROUGHT, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY ACTION IN TORT OR CONTRACT, EXCEED THE SUM OF ALL ACTION FEES PAID BY CLIENT PURSUANT TO THIS AGREEMENT FOR THE SIX (6) MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THE CLAIM. IN NO EVENT SHALL ACTION BE LIABLE FOR LOSS OF PROFITS OR DATA, USE OR INTERRUPTION OF BUSINESS, PUNITIVE, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR OTHER INDIRECT DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO CLIENT'S USE OF THE SERVICES OR OTHERWISE UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, EVEN IF ACTION HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
- FORCE MAJEURE
If the performance of any obligation by Action or Client under this Agreement (other than the payment of money) is prevented, restricted or interfered with by reason of any act or event which is beyond the reasonable control of the party affected, then the affected party shall be excused from such performance to the extent of such prevention, restriction or interference, provided that it shall use reasonable commercial efforts to avoid or remove such causes of nonperformance. If either party is unable to perform for a period of more than sixty (60) days due to any such act or event, the other party may terminate this Agreement.
Neither this Agreement nor any rights or obligations hereunder, in whole or in part, are assignable by Client without the prior written consent of Action; and any attempt to assign the rights, duties or obligations under this Agreement without such consent shall be a breach of this Agreement and be null and void.
