2. THE SERVICES
2.1. Statement of Works. Each time Customer wishes to have eMarket Design perform Services and deliver Deliverables, the Parties will execute a Statement of Work. All such Statement of Works shall be in writing, and shall be effective only when signed by both Parties.
2.2. Changes. Either Party may propose Changes pursuant to Section 2.3; provided that no Change shall be implemented until the Parties have executed a Change Order (as defined below). Once agreed upon by the Parties, Changes shall be implemented in accordance with the terms agreed upon in writing by the Parties in a Change Order, including reasonable pricing adjustments.
2.3. Change Orders. To request a Change, a Party will deliver a written request (“Change Order Request”) to the other Party specifying (a) the proposed Change and the requested implementation schedule; (b) the objective or purpose of such Change; (c) the requirements and Specifications of any Deliverables to be delivered pursuant to such Change; and (d) the requested prioritization and schedule for such Change. If the Parties agree to proceed with the proposed Change, the Parties must execute a written approval of the proposed Change (“Change Order”). Executed Change Orders shall become part of the Agreement and the applicable Statement of Work, both of which shall be amended thereby.
2.4. Changes in Law. In the event of any change in Law that requires Changes, the Parties shall negotiate in good faith a reasonable and equitable adjustment to the extent required by the applicable Law, and shall, if the Parties so agree, confirm such Changes in a Change Order. In the event that no such agreement is reached within a reasonable period, but not to exceed fifteen (15) days, from a Party’s delivery to the other Party of a Charge Order Request in connection with or pursuant to the change in Law, eMarket Design shall be entitled to terminate the Agreement with respect to the Statement of Work affected by the change in Law.
2.5. Service Locations; Equipment. Unless otherwise agreed, eMarket Design shall provide the Services on its premises. When Services are provided on Customer’s premises, Customer shall provide reasonable workspace and other facilities consistent with the requirements of the Services. Customer shall be responsible for supplying the equipment and other material required to complete the Services in a timely manner (“Customer Material”).
3.1. Delivery of Deliverables. Upon completion of a Deliverable, eMarket Design shall deliver such Deliverable, in the manner and using a method set out in the applicable Statement of Work, to Customer. A Customer may determine whether a software Deliverable substantially conforms to the applicable Specifications using the acceptance testing procedure set forth below unless other acceptance testing criteria are agreed in the applicable Statement of Work.
3.2. Acceptance Testing for Software Deliverables. Acceptance by Customer of a software Deliverable shall occur no later than three (3) business days from the date of delivery of the software Deliverable to Customer (“Acceptance Period”) upon the earlier of: (i) Customer notifying of its acceptance at any time during the Acceptance Period; (ii) Customer failing to notify of its acceptance or to provide eMarket Design with a list of Non-conformities (as defined below) prior to expiration of the Acceptance Period; (iii) successful Acceptance Testing (as described below); or (iv) use by Customer of the software Deliverable other than for Acceptance Testing (collectively, “Acceptance”). If Acceptance is not confirmed earlier, Customer shall be entitled, during the Acceptance period, to test the Deliverable to determine whether it substantially conforms to the applicable Specifications in all material respects (“Acceptance Testing”). If the Deliverable successfully passes an Acceptance Test, then Customer shall promptly notify eMarket Design of its Acceptance. If promptly after Acceptance Testing and within the applicable Acceptance Period, Customer notifies eMarket Design in writing of any material non-conformities in a Deliverable as evaluated against the applicable Specifications (each, a “Non-conformity”), Customer shall cooperate with eMarket Design in identifying in what respect the Deliverable has failed to conform to the Specifications, and grant eMarket Design a reasonable time to correct any such Non-conformity. Customer shall have the right to re-test the corrected Deliverable, upon the initial completion of such Deliverable. For removal of doubt, this Section 3.2 shall not apply to a non-software Deliverable.
3.3. Delays not attributable to eMarket Design. Failure to achieve Acceptance according to the Acceptance Testing procedure set out above, due to any reason not attributable to eMarket Design shall not delay Acceptance.
3.4. Minor Deficiencies. The Parties shall mutually agree on a list of any Minor Deficiencies, which shall not affect Acceptance and a fixed time within which such Deficiencies should be remedied. “Minor Deficiencies” refers to issues that do not substantially affect the commercial operation of any Deliverable.
4. PAYMENT OF FEES
4.1. Fees. Customer shall pay eMarket Design, for the Services and Deliverables provided by eMarket Design, the fees as specified in each applicable Statement of Work. The Services may be performed by eMarket Design on either a time and materials basis or on a fixed price basis, or a combination thereof, as set forth in the applicable Statement of Work.
4.2. Payment Terms. Customer shall pay eMarket Design within fourteen (14) days of the date of invoice and prior to delivery of the Deliverable, and overdue payments shall bear interest at the lesser of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or the maximum rate allowed under applicable Law. All payments to eMarket Design under the Agreement are exclusive of all current and future taxes, including without limitation, sales, use, value-added, withholding or other taxes or levies on transactions made under the Agreement, excluding taxes based on eMarket Design’s income. eMarket Design shall deliver or otherwise make available the Deliverable to Licensee within two (2) business days from the receipt of payment of the applicable fees.
4.3. Expenses. In addition to the fees, Customer shall reimburse eMarket Design for out-of-pocket travel and other expenses actually incurred by eMarket Design in connection with its performance of the Services, provided prior approval to incur such expenses is obtained from Customer. eMarket Design will not be responsible for any delay caused by or due to the time required for Customer to provide such approval.
