TERMS AND CONDITIONS
- GRANT OF LICENSE
riteSOFT, LLC (riteSOFT) and the Customer agree that the following terms and conditions will apply to any customer order for licensed programs that is accepted by riteSOFT under this Agreement.
A nontransferable and nonexclusive license for licensed programs shall be granted subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement for each program listed in the Schedule of Licensed Programs contained in this agreement. The grant of the license to use the Licensed Programs, and any component software incorporated by riteSOFT in the Licensed Programs, is limited to the intended purpose of the Licensed Programs, and for no other purpose of any kind.
The term “licensed program” in this Agreement shall mean a program consisting of a series of instructions or statements in machine readable form and any related materials such as, but not limited to, flow charts, logic diagrams and listings, and other documentation provided for use in connection with the licensed program.
The term “use” in this Agreement shall mean copying any portion of the licensed program materials into a machine and/or transmitting them to a machine, for processing of the machine instructions or statements contained in such materials.
“Initial Term” is the length of time for which customer has first licensed the program as set out in the Schedule of Licensed Programs. The Initial Term will begin on the date of invoice of the first Subscription Fee. If the Subscription Fee is due to invoice on a date equal to or before the 15th of the month, the Initial Term will begin on the first day of the month. If the Subscription Fee is due to invoice on the 16th of the month or later, the Initial Term will begin on the first day of the following month.
“Subsequent Term” is the length of time for which the license renews after the Initial Term, as set out in the Scheduled of Licensed Programs.
“Subscription Fee” means a monthly fee for the service described in Section 5 hereof, and being an amount as set out in the Schedule of Licensed Programs. The first Subscription Fee will be charged within 90 days of initial invoice. Thereafter, the Subscription Fee will be due on the first day of the month for each month the Program is licensed by Customer. riteSOFT reserves the right to change the amount of the Subscription Fee effective on the date of the next term renewal.
“Registration Number” means the algorithmic key number provided by riteSOFT to allow the Customer to use the licensed program. This number is renewed each year provided the Subscription Fee payments are current.
This Agreement is effective for the Initial Term from the date on which it is executed by both the Customer and riteSOFT, and will automatically renew for Subsequent Terms as described in the Schedule of Licensed Programs, unless terminated according to the terms of this Agreement. This Agreement may be terminated by the Customer upon one month’s written notice to riteSOFT. The Effective Date of the termination by Customer will be the last day of the then current term. This Agreement may be terminated by the Customer only when all programs licensed hereunder are discontinued and all licensed program materials have been returned. riteSOFT may immediately discontinue any license or terminate this Agreement upon written notice to the Customer if the Customer fails to comply with any of the terms and conditions of this Agreement. riteSOFT may terminate this agreement for any reason, other than for customer noncompliance with the agreement (immediate termination) upon 30 days’ notice from riteSOFT to Customer.
The license fee for each licensed program will be specified by riteSOFT. The Customer acknowledges that the license fee is due and payable with the order for the program. Customer acknowledges that this license is valid for the number of users purchased as specified in the Schedule of Licensed Programs.
- PAYMENT OF SUBSCRIPTION FEE
5.1 The Customer agrees to pay the Subscription Fees in consideration of riteSOFT granting the Customer the right to use the licensed program and accompanying documentation and riteSOFT furnishing to the Customer the maintenance service described below in relation to the licensed program commencing on the date the licensed program is ordered by the Customer, and continuing for so long as Customer is current on its payment of the Subscription Fees. Upon payment of the initial invoice, riteSOFT will issue the Customer’s registration number required to access and use the licensed program. If Customer’s Subscription Fees are current on each annual anniversary date of the signing date of this Agreement, riteSOFT will send Customer a Registration Number which will allow Customer to use the Licensed Programs for another year. At the time the Program is licensed, Customer will set up an Automated Clearing House (ACH) payment to riteSOFT which will provide for monthly payment of the Subscription Fees. The Customer acknowledges that its failure to pay the Subscription Fee when due will automatically result in the withdrawal of any service relative to the licensed program including maintenance services as well as access to license or license program upgrades and add-on modules etc. To re-qualify for maintenance services, the Customer shall pay all Subscription Fees accrued and outstanding since the date of last payment as well as charges for the licensed program’s re-certification as the current version to be eligible for maintenance services.
5.2 The maintenance services are: (a) supplying upgrades to the licensed programs in riteSOFT’s sole discretion; and (b) supplying corrections for any error in the licensed programs made known to riteSOFT normally by the issue of updated versions of the licensed programs from time to time as riteSOFT shall determine.
5.3 The Customer shall make available free of charge to riteSOFT all information, facilities and service required by riteSOFT for the performance of its obligations under this Agreement.
5.4 The obligation of riteSOFT under this Agreement, including without limitation, the obligation to provide the licensed programs and the maintenance services, are subject to and conditioned upon the timely performance of the Customer’s obligations under this Agreement, including without limitation payment of the Subscription Fee. IN THIS REGARD, CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT WITHOUT LIMITATION, FAILURE TO PAY A SUBSCRIPTION FEE SHALL ENTITLE riteSOFT, WITHOUT PRIOR NOTICE, TO TERMINATE THIS AGREEMENT UPON WRITTEN NOTICE TO THE CUSTOMER.
- ADDITIONAL SERVICES
All services not covered by the maintenance service described in Section 5 above which are requested by the Customer, including but not limited to a visit to the Customer’s location, assistance with licensed program installation and training of Customer staff, telephone and modem support shall be chargeable to the Customer upon the provision of services. Unless otherwise agreed, the charges therefore shall be at riteSOFT’s current standard rates for the time spent by the personnel in performing such services (including any travel time to and from the Customer location), together with any incidental expenses reasonably incurred; such as, travel & living expenses, long distance telephone, media costs, courier charges, and any other direct expenses associated with the above services. Charges for these services shall be due upon invoice.
In the event of a malfunction of a licensed program during operation of the system by the Customer, and provided such malfunction arises solely by reason of error or omission in the licensed program provided by riteSOFT and is not caused in whole or in part by operator error made by the Customer’s operator or by failure of the Customer’s staff to follow the procedures as outlined by riteSOFT, or by any modification made to the data or licensed program by the Customer by any means other than those provided by riteSOFT, then riteSOFT binds itself, at its cost, to correct such licensed program or refund the Base License Fee, to be determined at riteSOFT’s option.
