Any additional terms as set forth in schedules attached hereto or separate service orders, each hereby incorporated herein (the “Schedules” and “Service Orders”, and collectively with these Terms of Service, this “Agreement”). In the event of a conflict between any terms herein and in any Schedule, the terms of the Schedule for the particular service shall control. Charges for use of Services shall be invoiced in such manner as stated on an applicable Schedule, or if not therein provided, shall be invoiced at the end of each billing cycle, and, in all cases, payments are due within thirty (30) days after date of invoice.
(b) Taxes and Other Charges. Onstream reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to change or institute new or additional rates, charges and/or fees for access to or use of the Services or to change its payment terms or billing methods at any time. Onstream may suspend or terminate your Services if Onstream determines, in its sole discretion, that your previous payment record so warrants such suspension or termination. You will pay, and Onstream reserves the right to collect in arrears, all sales, use, consumption, goods and services, excise or other taxes (other than taxes based upon Onstream net income), fees, surcharges, charges for universal support mechanisms (including without limitation any and all federal or state Universal Service Fund charges) or other charges of any nature whatsoever, now or hereafter imposed or assessed on Onstream, by any foreign, federal, state/provincial, county or local government authority upon or with respect to the Services provided. If you claim exemption from charges, you must provide Onstream with a current, valid exemption certificate from the applicable regulatory authority. Once an exemption certificate has been provided to and verified by Onstream it will become effective on a prospective basis. Onstream shall not be liable for refunds or credit for taxes paid by you for periods prior to Onstream’s receipt of a valid exemption certificate. If at any period during your Service Term your exemption certificate should no longer be deemed valid, you will immediately be responsible for all taxes etc. owed until a new and valid exemption certificate is supplied to Onstream.
(c) Credit Cards. Notwithstanding any other provision herein, for any fees and/or charges paid by credit or debit cards, you agree if payment is not received by Onstream from the card issuer or its agents, you will pay all amounts due upon demand by Onstream.

YOU FURTHER AGREE THAT ONSTREAM MAY SUBMIT ADDITIONAL CHARGES FOR USE OF THE SERVICES EACH MONTH, QUARTER OR YEAR, AS APPLICABLE, IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS AGREEMENT, YOUR SERVICE AGREEMENT OR AS SET FORTH ON ONSTREAM”S WEBSITE, WITHOUT FURTHER AUTHORIZATION FROM YOU, until you provide prior written notice (in accordance with Onstream’s verification procedures, as may be established by Onstream from time to time in its sole discretion) that you terminate this authorization or desire to change your designated card. Such notices will not affect charges submitted before Onstream reasonably could act on such notice. When you provide your card information to Onstream (or its designated licensees or subcontractors), you represent and warrant to Onstream that you are the authorized user of your designated card. You agree to promptly notify Onstream of any changes to your designated card account number, its expiration date or your billing address, as applicable, and you agree to notify Onstream if such designated card expires or is cancelled for any reason. For the avoidance of doubt, the designated card account holder is responsible for all charges incurred, including applicable taxes, and all purchases made by such account holder or anyone that uses the card. WITHOUT LIMITING ANY OTHER REMEDY HEREIN, IF RECURRING FEES ARE NOT PAID IN A TIMELY MANNER, OR IF ONSTREAM IS UNABLE TO PROCESS YOUR TRANSACTION(S) USING THE DESIGNATED CARD INFORMATION PROVIDED, ONSTREAM RESERVES THE RIGHT TO SUSPEND AND/OR TERMINATE THE SERVICES.

Past-due balances not reasonably disputed in good faith as herein provided shall be subject to an interest charge of 2% per month computed from the due date of each invoice previously issued, or the maximum rate legally permitted, whichever is less, and you shall pay any collection costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, and other expenses incurred by Onstream to collect any such sums due under this Agreement. You must notify Onstream of any charge disputed in good faith, with supporting documentation, within thirty (30) days from the date of invoice, or you will be deemed to agree to such charges and no adjustments to charges or invoices will be made. You remain responsible to pay charges not reasonably disputed in good faith as herein provided by the due date.

With respect to the Beta Services, this subsection shall supersede any other terms and conditions contained herein, but only to the extent necessary to resolve conflict. In addition to and without limiting any other rights or remedies Onstream has, if Onstream determines, in its sole discretion, that you have violated any conditions of and/or limitations on the Beta Services, Onstream reserves the right to immediately terminate the Beta Services.

Without limiting the foregoing, Onstream may refuse the Licensed Services to any individual or entity who has cancelled any number of previous accounts.

You will pay Onstream for the audio conferencing services provided (the “Audio Services”) at the “Customer Rates” and “Standard Charges” (as below defined) and according to the terms of this Agreement and this Schedule of Additional Terms of Service for Audio Services. For purposes of this Agreement, Customer Specific Rates are those specifically negotiated by you and agreed to by Onstream, and Standard Charges are for those Audio Services not subject to Customer Specific Rates and/or rates included at list and all taxes, fees and surcharges. PRIOR TO USING ANY AUDIO SERVICES, YOU AGREE (i) TO BE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR REGULARLY REVIEWING ONSTREAM’s STANDARD CHARGES, WHICH ARE AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST FROM ONSTREAM SALES REPRESENTATIVES, OR CAN BE FOUND ON ONSTREAM’S WEBSITE AT http://www.onstreammedia.com.

Minimum Audio Commitment
In the event you agree to a minimum commitment for use of the Audio Services during the term of the Agreement (“Minimum Audio Commitment”) and do not meet your Minimum Audio Commitment in any given month, quarter or year, as applicable, Onstream shall invoice for, and you shall pay, upon receipt of invoice, the shortfall equal to the difference between the Minimum Audio Commitment during each applicable term less any payments for actual usage made by you during each applicable period during the term of the Agreement. For commitments based on minutes, the shortfall amount in dollars shall be calculated based upon pricing using the proportion of Audio Services as you actually used during the applicable period. Only the per minute usage of the Onstream meeting solutions shall be applicable to the Minimum Audio Commitment.
Effect of Termination by you with Minimum Audio Commitment
If you have agreed to a Minimum Audio Commitment and in the event that you terminate this Agreement (not due to breach by Onstream) or if Onstream terminates on account of your breach, you shall pay to Onstream as liquidated damages, but not as a penalty and representing a reasonable estimate of the probable loss to Onstream, the shortfall resulting from your failure to meet any Minimum Audio Commitment for the term of this Agreement, which amount shall equal the difference between the Minimum Audio Commitment multiplied, as applicable, by the number of months, quarters or years in the term less any payments for actual usage made by you during the term of this Agreement; provided, however, no payments over and above the Minimum Audio Commitment for any one month, quarter or year, as applicable, shall apply to or in any way be credited against any other, past or present, Minimum Audio Commitment or the overall shortfall amount for the term of this Agreement.
Schedule of Additional Terms of Service for Webcasting Services
By using the Webcasting services (as below defined, including any Trial use), Customer agrees to the following Additional Terms of Service for Webcasting Services.
Onstream hereby undertakes to produce Webcasting events utilizing its software application platform, Visual Webcaster 4.0 and Web Express (the “Platform”) and various services and tools (the “Webcasting Services”) that Onstream offers Customer for use (a “Webcast Event”). “Terms” shall mean these Terms of Service for Webcasting Services. Customer shall not in any way re-offer or sublicense the Webcasting Services, utilize the Webcasting Services in a manner that allows someone other than Customer or Onstream to manage a Webcast Event or use the Webcasting Services in any manner inconsistent with these Terms.
Onstream (or any Affiliate of Onstream) hereby undertakes to produce webcasting events utilizing the Platform and various services and tools (the “Webcasting Services”) that Onstream offers you for use (a “Webcast Event”).
Onstream hereby grants to you the non-exclusive non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable right to access and use the Platform, solely to the extent required to use the Webcasting Services and produce a Webcast Event. You may not rent, lease, grant a security interest in, or otherwise transfer any rights in the use of the Platform or the Webcasting Services. You shall not allow someone other than you or Onstream to manage a Webcast Event. You are prohibited from reselling or acting as a service bureau for any of the Webcasting Services. You shall not reverse engineer, modify, decompile, disassemble, translate or otherwise attempt to derive source code from any part of the Webcasting Services or associated software.

You are solely responsible for complying with all federal, state, and local laws in the relevant jurisdiction when using recording functionality.

Webcast Event Production and Services
Customer acknowledges that production of a Webcast Event will require utilization of various elements of services. Customer shall work with Onstream’s representative to establish which elements Customer requires for each event. For any custom Webcast Event for which additional specifications shall be required, the parties must execute a separate work order setting forth the customer requirements to be agreed upon by the parties in writing (“Work Order”). Utilizing the Work Order, Onstream will commence producing the Webcast Event. Customer acknowledges that because of the difficulties in defining all aspects of a Webcast Event, it will need to work closely with Onstream, including being reasonably available for consultations, if and when any unforeseen issues arise. Customer is fully responsible for providing all aspects of content of each Webcast Event and for making sure that aspects of content are available to Onstream as Onstream may require from time to time in producing the Webcast Event. For the avoidance of doubt, a fee of up to 50% of the quoted production cost will apply in the event of a cancellation by Customer with less than 48 hours notice. Onstream will not be responsible for editing any content provided by Customer.
The Work Order shall also describe in sufficient detail all aspects that Customer requires with respect to allowing viewers to view a Webcast Event, including such matters as the estimated number of viewers that may view the Webcast Event, the registration procedures for viewers, the availability of a Webcast Event after production for on-demand viewing, and any other concern or issue specifically of importance to Customer.
Customer warrants and represents it will not publish, post, upload, record or otherwise transmit any content or materials that knowingly infringe any intellectual property rights of third parties. Without limiting its other obligations, Customer shall indemnify, defend and hold Onstream and its suppliers harmless from any claims, losses, damages, penalties or costs (including without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees and expert witness fees) arising out of: (i) Customer’s violation or alleged violation of any applicable laws or regulations with respect to use of the Webcasting Services; or (ii) Customer’s infringement of any intellectual property rights of any third party. Notwithstanding any other provision, the indemnity obligations above-provided shall survive any termination or suspension of the Web Conferencing/Internet Services contemplated herein, the expiration or termination of any agreement for such services, shall survive final payment and shall not be subject to any limitation on liability of any kind.

As between Onstream and Customer, Onstream alone will own all rights, title and interest, including all related Intellectual Property, to any suggestions, ideas, feedback, improvements, recommendations or other information created, conceived, or reduced to practice, by or on behalf of Customer, any viewer or any subscriber to a Webcast Event relating to the Platform (“Submissions”). “Intellectual Property” shall mean any unpatented inventions, patent applications, patents, extensions, supplementary protection certificates, design rights, copyrights, trademarks, service marks, trade names, trade dress, domain rights, mask work rights, know-how, technology, business processes, Web Event concepts, Web Event experiences and other trade secret rights, and all other intellectual property rights, derivatives thereof, and any forms of protection of a similar nature anywhere in the world.

Customer agrees to take all such actions and execute such further documents or instruments as may be reasonably required by Onstream to support the provision of the Webcasting Services, including without limitation a Work Order. In the event Customer agrees, in Work Order, to a separate minimum commitment for use of the Webcasting Services (“Webcasting Services Minimum Commitment”) and does not meet such Webcasting Services Minimum Commitment in any given month, quarter or year, as applicable, Onstream shall invoice for, and Customer shall pay, upon receipt of invoice, the shortfall equal to the difference between the Webcasting Services Minimum Commitment during each applicable term less any payments for actual usage made by Customer during each applicable period during the term of the Work Order. In the event Customer terminates the Webcasting Services (not due to breach by Onstream) or if Onstream terminates on account of Customer’s breach, Customer shall pay to Onstream as liquidated damages, but not as a penalty and representing a reasonable estimate of the probable loss to Onstream, the shortfall resulting from Customer’s failure to meet its Webcasting Services Minimum Commitment for the term of such services, which amount shall equal the difference between the Webcasting Services Minimum Commitment multiplied, as applicable, by the number of months, quarters or years in the term for services less any payments for actual usage made by Customer during such term; provided, however, no payments over and above the Webcasting Services Minimum Commitment for any one month, quarter or year, as applicable, shall apply to or in any way be credited against any other, past or present, Webcasting Services Minimum Commitment or the overall shortfall amount due and payable. For the avoidance of doubt, only the usage of Webcasting Services shall be applicable to the Webcasting Services Minimum Commitment and no usage for Webcasting Services shall apply to any other minimum commitment previously agreed upon for other services by the parties. Any use of the Webcasting Services (including any Trial use) affirms, and any continued use of the Webcasting Services reaffirms, Customer’s acceptance of and agreement to be bound by these Additional Terms of Service for Webcasting Services.
