Fees are a factor of subscription volume, length of Subscription Term, transaction volume, data volume, number of users and/ or other variables (each, a “Purchased Unit”). Customer will submit an initial order for Hosted Services under an Order Form for the initial Purchased Units Customer selects for the Hosted Service. Unless otherwise set forth in an SOW or Order Form, amounts are due and payable within thirty (30) days following the date of the applicable invoice. Except as otherwise specified herein or in an Order Form, (i) fees are quoted and payable in United States dollars, (ii) fees are based on services purchased and data volume used and not actual usage, (iii) payment obligations are non-cancelable and fees paid are non-refundable, and (iv) the number of subscriptions purchased cannot be decreased during the relevant subscription term stated on the Order Form. If an Order Form specifies any limits for the applicable Hosted Service, Customer agrees not to exceed such limit(s); otherwise, OCI will charge for, and Customer agrees to pay for such additional access. Additional terms applicable to excess usage and adding Purchased Units are set forth below.
5.2 Excess Usage; Adding Purchased Units.

All invoices for excess usage or additional Purchased Units will be payable pursuant to the payment terms set forth herein. Customer may not reduce committed Purchased Units during a Subscription Term unless otherwise agreed to by the parties (in the case of OCI, by its CEO or CFO) in writing.
5.4 True-Ups.Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, OCI reserves the right to review Customer’s and all Users’ use of the Hosted Service at any time, to confirm compliance with the payment and other terms set forth in this Agreement. Accordingly, on approximately a semi-annual (every six (6) month) basis, OCI will provide to Customer a written (email sufficing) true-up or update statement (a “True-Up Report”), confirming the number, by User type, of active Users as of the date of the True-Up Report. As used herein, an “Active User” is defined as any User (or other Customer employee, contractor, agent, or sublicensee) who has accessed the Hosted Service under Customer’s account for at least three (3) minutes on at least two (2) occasion at any time during the period reflected in the True-Up Report. For clarity, OCI may elect, in OCI’s sole discretion, to not provide a True-Up Report if the number of Active Users (per subscription type) has not changed since the date of the prior True-Up Report. Concurrently, OCI will issue an updated Order Form and invoice reflecting the number of then-current Active Users, and the Purchased Units and applicable fees due and payable by Customer, prorated for the period remaining in the then-current Subscription Term. If Customer’s policies and procedures require a purchase order to be issued, Customer will promptly issue a purchase order for the additional fees due. Such updated Order Form and invoice will be deemed irrevocably accepted True-Up Report upon delivery, and Customer’s payment obligations will be in accordance with this Section 5. Upon payment for such Active Users by Customer, such Active Users will be deemed authorized Users under this Agreement and for any Renewals. For clarity, and notwithstanding the process set forth above, Customer is responsible for ensuring that its (and all Users’) use of the Services remains in compliance with this Agreement and the Purchased Units, as well as ensuring that all fees for such usage are paid to OCI.
5.5 Taxes. All fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties, and Customer will be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties, excluding United States (federal or state) taxes based solely on OCI’s income.

During this thirty (30) day period and upon Customer’s request, OCI will grant Customer limited access to the Hosted Service to retrieve Customer Data. OCI will not be liable to Customer nor to any third party for any termination of Customer access to the Service or deletion of Customer Data, provided that OCI is in compliance with the terms of this section.
6.3 Effect of Termination; Survival.

Customer acknowledges that the Services and OCI Technology contain OCI’s valuable trade secrets and proprietary information, that any breach of this Agreement relating thereto may result in harm to OCI for which monetary damages may be inadequate, and that OCI may seek injunctive relief as an appropriate remedy.
11.6 Independent Contractors. The parties are independent contractors. No joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between the parties as a result of this Agreement or use of the Services. Except for OCI’s suppliers and licensors, there are no third party beneficiaries under this Agreement
11.7 U.S. Government End Users. If Customer is a U.S. government agency, the following applies. OCI provides the Services, including related software and technology, in accordance with the following: government technical data and software rights related to the Service include only those rights customarily provided to the public as defined in this Agreement. This customary access right and license is provided in accordance with FAR 12.211 (Technical Data) and FAR 12.212 (Software) and, for Department of Defense transactions, DFAR 252.227-7015 (Technical Data – Commercial Items) and DFAR 227.7202-3 (Rights in Commercial Computer Software or Computer Software Documentation). If a government agency has a need for rights not conveyed under these terms, it must negotiate with OCI to determine if there are acceptable terms for transferring such rights, and a mutually acceptable written addendum specifically conveying such rights, must be included in any applicable contract or agreement.
11.8 Export Compliance. Customer acknowledges that the Services may be subject to U.S. and foreign export and import restrictions. Customer will not and will not allow any export or re-export of any part of the Services, or any direct product thereof: (a) into (or to a national or resident of) any embargoed or terrorist-supporting country; (b) to anyone on the U.S. Commerce Department’s Table of Denial Orders or U.S. Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals; (c) to any country to which such export or re-export is restricted or prohibited, or as to which the United States government or any agency thereof requires an export license or other governmental approval at the time of export or re-export without first obtaining such license or approval; or (d) otherwise in violation of any export or import restrictions, laws or regulations. Customer agrees to the foregoing and warrants that it is not located in, under the control of, or a national or resident of any such prohibited country or on any such prohibited party list. The Services are further restricted from being used for the design or development of nuclear, chemical, or biological weapons or missile technology, or for terrorist activity, without the prior permission of the United States government.
11.9 Waiver; Severability. A party’s failure to enforce any provision in this Agreement will not constitute a waiver unless in writing. No modification hereof will be effective unless in writing and signed by both parties. If any provision of this Agreement is unenforceable, it will be changed and interpreted to accomplish the objectives of such provision to the extent legally permissible; remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect. However, Section 9 will remain in effect notwithstanding the unenforceability of any provision in Section 7. Neither party will be liable for failure to perform due to causes beyond its reasonable control.
11.10 Force Majeure. Neither party will be liable for any failure to perform hereunder due to causes beyond its reasonable control.

11.12 Electronic Signatures. To facilitate execution, the documents that comprise this Agreement (including any Order Form and/or SOW) may be executed by a party in the form of an “Electronic Record” (as such term is defined in the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act at 15 U.S.C. §7001 et seq. (“ESIGN Act”)). This Agreement may be executed in as many counterparts as may be required to reflect all Parties’ assent, and all counterparts will collectively constitute a single agreement. An “Electronic Signature” (as defined in the ESIGN Act) that can be authenticated will constitute an original and binding signature of a party. The fact that a document is in the form of an Electronic Record or is signed using an Electronic Signature will not, in and of itself, be grounds for invalidating such document.
