Customer's right to access and use the Service is limited to Customer's internal use only.

If Customer exceeds the allotted hours purchased in its support pack level (10, 20, 40 hour packs), then Customer will be charged $175 per additional hour.

Customer will immediately notify Impartner if Customer becomes aware of any breach of any such Partner Agreement.
2.5 Third-Party CRM Applications. Customer understands and agrees that the Service does not include a license to any third-party CRM application and that Customer is responsible to obtain its own license to any third-party CRM application that Customer desires to use with the Service. Any acquisition by Customer of a third-party CRM application, including but not limited to any implementation, customization, or any exchange of data between Customer and any third-party provider, is solely between Customer and the applicable third-party provider.

2.6 Access to Customer Data. At any time during the Subscription Term, Customer may access the Customer Data and download a copy of such Customer Data.

Additional services (including, without limitation, professional services or professional consulting services) may be provided by Impartner upon the mutual agreement of the Parties for additional fees.
3. FEES AND PAYMENT
3.1 Subscription Fees. The subscription fees payable for the Service are based on Customer’s Use Limit as set forth in the Order Form or modified in accordance with this Section 3.1. Except as otherwise set forth herein or in an Order Form, (i) fees are quoted and payable in United States dollars, (ii) fees are based on Service subscriptions purchased and not actual usage, and (iii) payment obligations are non-cancelable and fees paid are non-refundable, except as permitted in Section 6.1, Section 7.2, Section 9.3, or Section 11.2. If at any time Customer exceeds its authorized Use Limit (has more than the authorized number of Partners, for example), but it does not exceed its Use Limit by more than the applicable Tier Billing Overage Allowance shown in the Order Form, then then there will be no change to Customer’s pricing or Use Limit. However, if at any time Customer does exceed its authorized Use Limit by more than the applicable Tier Billing Overage Allowance, then (a) the Use Limit applicable to Customer’s Service subscription will be automatically increased to the next authorized Use Limit (as shown in the Order Form); (b) Impartner will notify Customer of the new Use Limit; and (c) Impartner will invoice Customer for the difference between the subscription fees applicable to Customer at the prior Use Limit and Customer’s new Use Limit, at Impartner’s then-current list price for such new Use Limit (after applying the Marginal Volume Discounts shown in the Order Form), for the remainder of the current billing period. For the avoidance of doubt, all renewals shall be invoiced at the applicable Use Limit in place at the conclusion of the prior Subscription Term.
3.2 Expenses. Customer shall reimburse Impartner for all expenses incurred by Impartner with the prior approval of Customer in the performance of implementation or requested professional services, including, but not limited to, expenses of transportation in connection with providing services, reasonable expenses for out-of-town travel including meals, rental cars and lodging, professional and programming services which may be required such as secondary employees and other experts, as well as outside services such as programmers. Records of reimbursable expenses including statements and receipts shall be provided to Customer along with the invoice to which they pertain.
3.3 Invoicing and Payment. Fees will be invoiced in advance in accordance with the relevant Order Form. Unless otherwise stated in the Order Form, fees are due thirty (30) days from the invoice date. All fees shall be paid by wire transfer. With each wire transfer payment, Customer shall provide Impartner with a listing of the Impartner invoices that Customer is making payment against. If any amounts invoiced hereunder are not received by Impartner by the due date, then such amounts shall accrue interest at the rate of 1.5% of the outstanding balance per month, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, from the date such payment was due until the date paid. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, and without limiting any remedies available to Impartner, Customer shall be liable to Impartner for all reasonable expenses, including but not limited to collections and legal fees, associated with Impartner’s efforts to collect on an overdue invoice.
3.4 Suspension of the Service. If any charge owing by Customer is thirty (30) days or more overdue, Impartner may, without limiting its other rights and remedies, suspend the Service until such amounts are paid in full.
3.5 Taxes. Customer agrees to pay all applicable taxes levied by any tax authority on the Service or on Customer's use thereof, which shall be separately invoiced, excluding taxes based on the net income of Impartner. Customer shall provide to Impartner any certificate of exemption or similar document required to exempt any transaction under this Agreement from sales tax or other tax liability.

Customer is responsible for any (i) Customer Data submitted or contributed to the Service by Customer, Partners, or Users, and (ii) Customer's, Partners' and Users' use of such content, including without limitation its legality, reliability, accuracy, and appropriateness.
4.5 Service Suspension. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, Impartner may temporarily suspend Customer's and/or any Admin User's access to any portion or all of the Service if: (i) Impartner reasonably determines that: (A) Customer's or any Admin User's use of the Service disrupts or poses a security risk to Impartner or to any other customer or vendor of Impartner; (B) Customer, or any Admin User, is using the Service in breach of this Agreement or in violation of applicable law; (C) Customer has ceased to continue its business in the ordinary course, made an assignment for the benefit of creditors or similar disposition of its assets, or become the subject of any bankruptcy, reorganization, liquidation, dissolution, or similar proceeding; or (D) Impartner's provision of the Service to Customer is or becomes prohibited by applicable law; (ii) any vendor of Impartner has suspended or terminated Impartner's access to or use of any third-party services or products required to enable Customer to access and use the Service; or (iii) in accordance with Section 3.4 (any such suspension described in subclause (i), (ii), or (iii), a
Service Suspension). Impartner shall use commercially reasonable efforts to provide written notice of any Service Suspension to Customer and to provide updates regarding resumption of access to the Service following any Service Suspension. Impartner shall use commercially reasonable efforts to resume providing access to the Service as soon as reasonably possible after the event giving rise to the Service Suspension is cured. Impartner will have no liability for any damage, liabilities, losses (including any loss of data or profits), or any other consequences that Customer may incur as a result of a Service Suspension.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, either Party may disclose any of the other Party's Confidential Information to its employees or consultants that have a need to know such Confidential Information in connection with such Party's performance under this Agreement and that have agreed to be bound by confidentiality obligations similar to those in this Section.
5.3 Protection of Customer Data.

Impartner shall not (a) modify Customer Data, (b) disclose Customer Data except as compelled by law in accordance with the "Compelled Disclosure" section below or as expressly permitted in writing by Customer, or (c) access Customer Data except to provide the Service and prevent or address service or technical problems, or at Customer's request in connection with customer support matters.

6.2 Mutual Warranties. Each Party represents and warrants that (i) it has the legal power to enter into this Agreement, and (ii) it will not transmit to the other Party any Malicious Code (except for Malicious Code previously transmitted to the warranting Party by the other Party).
6.3 Disclaimer. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED HEREIN, THE SERVICE IS PROVIDED ON AN
AS IS BASIS WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, AND EACH PARTY SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING. WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. IMPARTNER DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICE WILL SATISFY CUSTOMER'S REQUIREMENTS OR (WITHOUT PREJUDICE TO THE LIMITED WARRANTY ABOVE) THAT IT IS WITHOUT DEFECT OR ERROR OR THAT CUSTOMER'S ACCESS THERETO WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED.
7.1 Impartner Indemnification. Impartner agrees to defend Customer against any claims, demands, suits, or proceedings (each, a "Claim") made or brought against Customer by a third party alleging that Customer's use of the Service infringes or misappropriates the intellectual property rights of such third party and to indemnify Customer from any damages finally awarded by a court of competent jurisdiction against Customer or amounts agreed to in settlement in connection with any such Claim. Impartner's obligations under this paragraph shall only apply to the extent that: (a) Customer promptly notifies Impartner in writing of the Claim; (b) Impartner has control of the defense and all related settlement negotiations relating to the Claim, provided however the settlement of any Claim shall not be made without advance written permission of Customer, which shall not be unreasonably withheld; and (c) Customer provides Impartner with the assistance, information and authority reasonably necessary to perform the above. In no event will Impartner have any obligation or liability under this paragraph for any Claim or action under any legal theory if the Claim or action is caused by, or results from: (i) Customer's combination, operation or use of the Service with software or other materials not supplied by Impartner, (ii) any alteration or modification of the Service by Customer, (iii) Customer's continued allegedly infringing activity after being notified thereof or after being provided modifications that would have avoided the alleged infringement, or (iv) the actions or omissions of any person or entity other than Impartner.
7.2 Remedy for Infringement. Should Customer's right to use the Service pursuant to this Agreement be subject to a Claim of infringement or if Impartner reasonably believes such a Claim of infringement may arise, Impartner may, at its option and in its sole discretion (i) procure for Customer the right to continue to access and use the Services; (ii) modify the Service to render it non-infringing but substantially functionally equivalent to the Service prior to such modification; or (iii) if the alternatives described in clauses (i) and (ii) of this paragraph are not commercially practicable, then Impartner may terminate this Agreement and refund to Customer any amounts pre-paid by Customer for the Service for the unused portion of the Subscription Term.
7.3 Customer Indemnification. Customer agrees to defend Impartner against any Claims made or brought against Impartner by a third party alleging that the Customer Data or any other information provided by Customer to Impartner for use in connection with the Service, infringes or violates the intellectual property rights or privacy rights of a third party and to indemnify Impartner from any damages finally awarded by a court of competent jurisdiction against Impartner or amounts agreed to in settlement in connection with any such Claim. Customer's obligations under this paragraph shall only apply to the extent that: (a) Impartner promptly notifies Customer in writing of the Claim; (b) Customer has control of the defense and all related settlement negotiations relating to the Claim, provided however the settlement of any Claim shall not be made without advance written permission of Impartner, which shall not be unreasonably withheld; and (c) Impartner provides Customer with the assistance, information and authority reasonably necessary to perform the foregoing. Impartner shall promptly provide Customer with written notice of any Claim which Impartner believes falls within the scope of this Section. Impartner's failure to provide written notice to Customer shall not affect Customer's indemnification obligations hereunder except to the extent that Customer is materially prejudiced thereby. At any time after Customer becomes aware of any such Claim, Customer may procure for Impartner the right to continue to use the information for use in connection with the Service at its own expense. Impartner shall not be responsible for any delay or disruption to the Customer's use of the Service, including any damages stemming therefrom, caused by a Claim falling under this section.
8. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY HAVE ANY LIABILITY TO THE OTHER FOR ANY LOST PROFITS OR REVENUES OR FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, COVER OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, HOWEVER CAUSED, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR UNDER ANY OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY, AND WHETHER OR NOT THE PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. EXCEPT FOR ITS OBLIGATIONS UNDER SECTION 7 (INDEMNIFICATION), IN NO EVENT SHALL IMPARTNER'S LIABILITY FOR DAMAGES UNDER THIS AGREEMENT FOR ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER, AND REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF THE ACTION, EXCEED THE AMOUNT OF MONEY PAID BY CUSTOMER FOR THE SERVICE DURING THE 12-MONTH PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE INCIDENT. WITH RESPECT TO ITS OBLIGATIONS UNDER SECTION 7 (INDEMNIFICATION) ABOVE, THE LIABILITY OF IMPARTNER TO CUSTOMER FOR ACTUAL DAMAGES FROM ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER, AND REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF THE ACTION (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE), SHALL NOT EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF FEES PAID (OR PAYABLE) BY CUSTOMER TO IMPARTNER HEREUNDER. THE FOREGOING SHALL NOT LIMIT THE PARTIES' PAYMENT OBLIGATIONS UNDER SECTION 3 ABOVE. CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THE AMOUNT OF FEES PAYABLE BY CUSTOMER TO IMPARTNER HEREUNDER REFLECT THE ALLOCATION OF RISK SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT AND THAT IMPARTNER WOULD NOT HAVE ENTERED INTO THIS AGREEMENT WITHOUT THE LIMITATIONS ON ITS LIABILITY CONTAINED IN THIS SECTION. THESE LIABILITY LIMITATIONS APPLY EVEN IF CONTRACTUAL REMEDIES FAIL OF THEIR ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if at any time Customer is not satisfied with Impartner's implementation services or setup of the Service or otherwise believes that Impartner has failed to satisfactorily complete the setup of the Service, then Customer's sole remedy shall be to notify Impartner of the failure or its dissatisfaction and Impartner shall then use commercially reasonable efforts to correct the implementation services or to properly setup the Service.

9.3 Refund or Payment upon Termination. Upon any termination for cause by Customer, and subject to any adjustment under Section 3.1, Impartner shall refund Customer any prepaid fees covering the unused portion of the Subscription Term. Upon any termination for cause by Impartner, Customer shall pay any unpaid fees covering the remainder of the Subscription Term after the effective date of termination.

Customer shall remove all contacts that have elected to unsubscribe via US mail within forty-eight (48) hours of receipt of the written request or earlier where required under applicable law.

Customer will be responsible for providing approval of all necessary information required by Impartner to perform the Services, whether such information is provided by Customer, its customers, consultants, end users, advocates or other agents of Customer ("Users") or Recipients (as defined below), including, but not limited to, the reward amount(s) ("Reward") or data necessary for Reward calculation, the party to receive the applicable Reward ("Recipient"), and method of issuing the Reward. To the extent Impartner does not have the necessary information to process a Reward, Impartner shall notify Customer and Customer shall be solely responsible for providing the information or obtaining the information from the applicable User. Impartner shall not be liable or responsible for failing to process a Reward if the Recipient Information has not been provided to Impartner. Upon execution of the Order Form, Impartner will implement Customer's specifications into Impartner's Application management interface ("Interface"). For purposes of this Appendix, "Application" means a database and software web services application offered to Customer over the Internet and accessible by a URL designated by Impartner. For the avoidance of doubt, this Appendix does not provide for the licensing of the Application, which is subject to the terms and conditions in the Agreement.
2. Recipient Information. Customer, or a User on Customer's behalf, is responsible for providing Impartner with the name of each Recipient and sufficient information to enable delivery of a Reward, including email address, physical address and/or bank account information ("Recipient Information"). Customer represents and warrants that it has obtained or has required Users to obtain all necessary consents, rights and permissions to disseminate or otherwise transfer such information, in writing, orally and/or electronically to Impartner for purposes of Impartner performing the Services. Customer agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold Impartner and its Payment Processors harmless against any claim or action brought by any User, Recipient or third party for an actual or alleged violation of this Section and any other losses, liabilities, damages and claims arising from Customer's failure to obtain the necessary consents, rights or permissions. This obligation of Customer shall not be subject to any limitation of liability set forth in the Agreement.
3. Use of Third-Party Payment Processors. In order to provide the Services, Impartner may, in its sole discretion, utilize the services of one or more third-party networks, payments processor or providers (each a "Payment Processor"), such as gift card vendors or cash payment vendors to facilitate the transfer of funds. Impartner may change Payment Processors at any time in its sole discretion with or without notice to Customer. In the event Impartner determines, in its sole discretion, that it is unable to provide the Service due to a Payment Processor, Impartner may temporarily discontinue the Service or provide the Service through an alternate Payment Processor. In the event Impartner temporarily discontinues the Service or provides the Service through an alternate Payment Processor, Impartner shall have no liability to Customer for the unavailability or delays in providing the Service.
4. Reward Calculation. Prior to implementation of the Services, Customer and Impartner will agree in writing upon the method of calculating the Reward (i.e. a fixed Reward amount, a percentage of revenue, or other method of calculation as the parties may agree to in the Statement of Work or through a ticket submitted via Task View). As part of the Services, Impartner will calculate the amount of the Reward to be paid to each Recipient based upon the calculation method agreed upon in the Statement of Work. By using the Interface, Customer may change any variable amounts in the calculation. However, a change to the method of calculation shall require a Change Order to the Statement of Work if additional implementation services are required to be performed by Impartner. For purposes of this Appendix, "Change Order" means a ticket submitted via Task View.
5. Payments Approval. Impartner will determine Reward amounts based upon data provided by Customer and Users on Customer's behalf. Impartner will attribute Reward payments to Recipients based upon the data received from Customer and Users of the Program. Customer shall remain solely responsible for the accuracy of this data. In addition, Customer has the option to approve Reward payments by using the Interface and auditing capabilities provided by the Application. In the event that Customer elects not to use such capabilities, Customer agrees and authorizes Impartner to approve all Rewards automatically. Further, Impartner shall have no liability or responsibility to Customer or a Recipient for the timeliness, accuracy, completeness or appropriateness of any data and/or information received by Impartner from Customer, Customer's systems, other financial institutions or any Payment Processor, including for undelivered Reward payments. If Customer believes or suspects that the Application has been compromised in any manner, or has become known or accessed by an unauthorized person (whether or not employed by Customer), Customer agrees to promptly notify the Impartner. Such compromise or unauthorized access will not affect any Reward payments Impartner instructed a Payment Processor or Customer to make in good faith prior to Impartner's receipt of Customer's notification and for a reasonable time period thereafter.
6. Funding of Reward Payments. Prior to Impartner or its Payment Processor issuing a Reward payment, Customer must approve and provide sufficient funds for the Reward payments. Impartner will invoice Customer for the amount of the Rewards plus any applicable transaction fees as set forth in the Order Form. To expedite Reward payments, Customer may elect to prefund the Rewards account with Impartner on a periodic basis to assure that sufficient funds are available to make Reward payments and pay the applicable fees at the time that the Recipient is eligible to receive the Reward. Impartner will retain an accounting of differences between accumulated funds and Reward payments so that Customer can make adjustments to future prefunding amounts. Upon termination of this agreement, all unused prefunded amounts will be returned to Customer within thirty (30) days of the effective termination date. CUSTOMER AND IMPARTNER AGREE THAT IMPARTNER'S SOLE OBLIGATIONS ARE MANAGING AND FACILITATING THE REWARDS PAYMENTS PROCESS FOR CUSTOMER. ALL REWARDS ISSUED WILL BE APPROVED BY CUSTOMER AND ISSUED TO RECIPIENTS AT THE DIRECTION OF AND ON BEHALF OF CUSTOMER. IMPARTNER SHALL NOT FUND OR PAY ANY RECIPIENTS ON ITS OWN BEHALF OR FOR ITS OWN BENEFIT.
7. Reward Management and Payment Timing. Impartner will communicate to the Customer, as specified in the Order Form, the amount of Rewards to be paid, the names of the Recipients and the Recipient Information to issue Reward payments. If Impartner is using a Payment Processor to issue Reward payments, Impartner will use commercially reasonable efforts to initiate Reward payments at the mutually agreed intervals. If Rewards are to be issued in cash-equivalents, including checks, ACH (Automated Clearing House), or wire transfers, Impartner will accrue and issue the Reward payments on a monthly basis, unless otherwise agreed upon in the Order Form. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Customer understands that circumstances beyond Impartner's reasonable control may cause delays in payment, including, but not limited to, acts of god, utility or telecommunications failures, electrical outages, storms or other elements. For certain payment types, actual payment delivery date is dependent upon activities such as Payment Processor schedules, banking system transfer times, or postal service delivery times. For any Reward payment that requires the use of an account name and account number, if the account name and account number do not match, any financial institution involved in the Reward payment may, in its sole discretion, reject the Reward payment or rely solely upon the account number or other identifying number provided by Customer.
8. Payments Compliance. Customer is solely responsible for determining if a Reward payment or designated Recipient receiving a Reward would violate any provision of any present or future risk control program of the Federal Reserve, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) policy, Presidential Order, Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) policy, any anti-money laundering (AML), anti-terror regulations or other applicable Law. For the purposes of this Appendix, "Law" means all federal, state and local laws, statutes, rules, codes, directives, regulations, orders and ordinances, as enacted and/or amended from time to time and any rule, regulation, order, directive or decision of any governing trade association, as enacted and/or amended from time to time, including, as applicable, NACHA, Electronic Check Clearing House Organization, card associations, clearinghouses, networks and/or other associations involved in transactions under this Appendix. In addition to the foregoing, Impartner may suspend the Services if: (a) the Reward payment violates, in Impartner's sole reasonable opinion, any of the foregoing, (b) Customer is in beach of the Agreement or this Appendix, (c) Customer has not provided sufficient funds to complete the Reward payment (including applicable fees), (d) Customer has provided insufficient Recipient Information, or (e) Impartner, in its sole discretion, determines that there is or may be compromise of or unauthorized access to the Service.
9. Currency Exchange Rates. If Customer requests that Impartner calculate Reward amounts in non-US currency, Impartner will calculate estimated amounts that Customer can expect to fund using currency exchange rates publicly available on the date that the Reward to be paid is submitted to Impartner or approved for payment. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a Recipient is receiving a Reward payment outside of the U.S. in a foreign currency, such Reward payment will be subject to the then-prevailing currency exchange rates at the time a Reward payment is made regardless of any prior estimated amounts provided by Impartner. Customer acknowledges that Reward amounts provided prior to the Reward payment are solely estimates and may not reflect the actual amount that Customer is required to fund. In addition, before releasing foreign Reward payments, Impartner will invoice Customer for expected costs based upon the then-prevailing currency exchange rate plus an additional percentage, up to five percent (5%) ("Float") to set off any differences between the currency conversion rate at the time of invoice and the rate at the time of expected funding by the Customer and the currency conversion rate at the time of actual release of the foreign Reward payment. Impartner, will retain an accounting of the Float so that subsequent invoices may be adjusted to keep the accumulated Float amount within a reasonable amount. Upon termination of this Appendix, any unused Float amounts will be returned to Customer.
10. Limitation of Liability. Unless as otherwise agreed upon in this Appendix, each party's and all of its Affiliates' liability, taken together in the aggregate, arising out of or related to this Appendix, whether in contract, tort or under any other theory of liability, is subject to the 'Limitation of Liability' section of the Agreement, and any reference in such section to the liability of a party means the aggregate liability of that party and all of its Affiliates under the Agreement and this Appendix. For the avoidance of doubt, Impartner's and its Affiliates' total liability for all claims from the Customer and all of its Authorized Affiliates arising out of or related to the Agreement and this Appendix shall apply in the aggregate for all claims under both the Agreement and this Appendix, including by Customer and all Authorized Affiliates, and, in particular, shall not be understood to apply individually and severally to Customer and/or to any Authorized Affiliate that is a contractual party to any such Appendix. Also, for the avoidance of doubt, each reference to the Appendix in this Appendix means this Appendix including its Schedules and Exhibits.
11. Reporting and Forms. Customer acknowledges that it is not possible for the Services to be free of operator, program or equipment error and that errors in processing and compiling Reward related data may occasionally occur, requiring adjustments. As such, Customer agrees to review and verify all results and to maintain adequate controls for ensuring both the accuracy of data transmissions and the detection of errors. If the Services require Impartner to provide Customer or Recipients, on Customer's behalf, with reports, forms or other tax documentation, including Form 1099 ("Documentation") and Customer notifies Impartner within thirty (30) days of receiving the Documentation that such Documentation is not accurate, Impartner may, when Impartner, in its sole discretion, determines it feasible to do so, correct such Documentation and provide the corrected Documentation to Customer. For clarification, any Documentation provided to Recipients by Impartner is on behalf of Customer, and Customer shall be designated as the Payer for the purposes of such Documentation. Customer agrees to pay all fees and amounts incurred by Impartner in providing such Documentation to Recipients. Customer agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold Impartner and its Payment Processors harmless against all claims or actions for an actual or alleged violation of this Section, obligation to report income or payments, and any other losses, liabilities, damages and claims arising from Customer's failure to properly report taxes under this Appendix. This obligation of Customer shall not be subject to any limitation of liability set forth in the Agreement.
12. Term and Termination. This Appendix shall have the same term as the Agreement. This Appendix may only be terminated as described in the Agreement.
13. Effect of Termination or Breach on Reward Payments. In the event of termination or breach of this Appendix, Customer shall remain responsible for the funding of any approved Reward payments to Recipients through the effective date of such termination and for all fees and charges for the Services for the processing of Reward payments through and after the effective date of such termination.
