5.1. Subscription Term. The Subscription Term for each Service is specified in the applicable Order Form.
5.2. Renewals. Except as may otherwise be set forth in an Order Form, at the end of the Initial Term and any Renewal Term, each Order Form will automatically renew for the Renewal Term set forth in the Order Form, unless either party provides the other with 60 days prior notice of its intention to not renew. If Subscriber does not want its then-current Subscription Term to automatically renew, Subscriber must send notice no less than 60 days prior to the end of their then-current term by emailing: email@example.com. The Minimum Fee for each Renewal Term will be the same as the Minimum Fee for the prior Subscription Term unless otherwise agreed to in a new Order Form.

If this Agreement is terminated by Beyond in accordance with Section 5.3, or if Subscriber ceases use of the Services during a Subscription Term, Subscriber will pay the Minimum Fee, minus any Booking Revenue Fees already paid for the period of the Subscription Term prior to the effective date of termination. Any termination of this Agreement does not relieve You of obligations to pay Fees or costs accrued prior to termination, disputes, and any other amounts owed to Beyond as provided in this Agreement.
6. Fees & Payment
6.1. Fees. Subscriber will pay Beyond the applicable Fees described in the Order Form in accordance with this Agreement.
6.2. Booking Revenue Fee. Unless a specific Service is priced differently, as may be set forth in the applicable Order Form, Subscriber's Booking Revenue Fee and the Minimum Fee are specified in the applicable Order Form. Unless otherwise set forth in the applicable Order Form, Subscriber shall pay the Booking Revenue Fee for each Service, unless the Minimum Fee is not met for the Subscription Term, in which case Section 6.3 applies. The Booking Revenue Fee is fixed for the Subscription Term, but may be modified for Renewal Terms by providing thirty (30) days written notice to Subscriber (email is acceptable).
6.3. Minimum Fee. Unless otherwise set forth in the applicable Order Form, the Minimum Fee applies to the Services. The Minimum Fee will be invoiced in the event that Subscriber's total Booking Revenue Fees for a Subscription Term do not equal or exceed the Minimum Fee, reduced by any Booking Revenue Fees paid by Subscriber during the Subscription Term. For the Initial Term, total Booking Revenue Fees are calculated from the Go-Live Date, and for Renewal Terms, total Booking Revenue Fees are calculated from the first date of each Renewal Term. Beyond may determine in its reasonable discretion that Subscriber shall not be subject to the Minimum Fee if local regulations or a natural disaster materially affects the Subscriber’s ability to conduct business.
6.4. Fees; Payment Terms; Invoice Disputes.
(a) Unless otherwise specified in an Order Form, Fees will be invoiced monthly in arrears, and are due upon receipt of invoice. Subscriber is responsible for providing complete and accurate billing information to Beyond. Subscriber hereby authorizes Beyond and its successor or assigns to charge the credit card (“Card”) or initiate ACH debits from a depository account at a U.S. financial institution (“Account”) that has been designated in its Beyond Pricing application for all fees and other amounts owed to Beyond or its affiliates, whether on a one-time basis or, if elected by Subscriber, on a recurring basis. Your designated Card or Account are collectively referred to as the “Payment Method.” You represent and warrant that you are the cardholder/account holder named on the Payment Method designated in the Beyond Pricing application. You will provide accurate and complete information to verify your Payment Method as requested by Beyond including but not limited to your billing address. You must always maintain the Account with sufficient cleared funds or the Card with a sufficient balance to meet your obligations under this Agreement throughout the Term of this Agreement and for as long as you have any outstanding financial obligations to Beyond after the termination of this Agreement. As a condition to receive the Service, you must authorize Beyond to store your Payment Method for future transactions in accordance with this Agreement. Payment obligations are non-cancelable and fees paid are non-refundable unless otherwise provided herein. If Subscriber wants to change its Payment Method it may do so within the Beyond Pricing application, provided however, that such change will not become effective until the date on which Beyond makes the change on its system. In no event is Beyond liable for any amounts or fees charged with respect to its charge or debit of the Payment Method. Subscriber will be responsible for any non-sufficient funds (NSF) fees for amounts charged to the Account. Beyond may rely on the payment information inputted in your Beyond Pricing application as may be updated from time to time. You authorize Beyond to share any information you provide us with our banking and payment processing partners. Your authorization to charge or debit your Payment Method will remain in full force and effect for the duration of this Agreement for as long there are any outstanding financial obligations to Beyond after the termination of this Agreement.
(b) Beyond reserves the right to suspend Subscriber’s account, in addition to all of its other available rights and remedies, in the event that Subscriber’s account becomes overdue. Suspension shall not relieve Subscriber’s obligation to pay amounts due. All unpaid Fees are subject to a finance charge of 1.5% per month on any outstanding balance, or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is lower, plus all expenses of collection, including but not limited to attorneys’ fees and expenses, collection agency fees, and any applicable interest, and may result in immediate termination of Services.
(c) If Subscriber believes that Beyond has billed Subscriber incorrectly, or Subscriber believes that invoices have included stays that should be excluded, Subscriber must contact Beyond’s customer support team at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 15 days after the closing date on the first billing statement in which the error or problem appeared, in order to receive an adjustment or credit.
6.5. Credits. In the event that a Property booking is canceled prior to the commencement of the stay, Beyond will apply to Subscriber's account a credit in the amount of the Booking Revenue Fees charged for that booking, and will automatically apply any such credit to future Booking Revenue Fees. Credits are non-refundable but may be transferred over to subsequent Subscription Terms, as necessary. Any credits set forth in an applicable Order Form will be made as set forth therein, provided the Order Form remains in effect and has not been terminated.
6.6. Taxes. Fees do not include any taxes, levies, duties, or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including, but not limited to, VAT, sales, use, occupancy, or withholding taxes, assessable by any local, state, provincial, federal or foreign jurisdiction (“Taxes”). Subscriber is responsible for determining and fulfilling its tax obligations under applicable laws to report, collect, or remit taxes. In jurisdictions where Beyond facilitates the collection and/or remittance of Taxes on behalf of Subscriber, Subscriber instructs and authorizes Beyond to collect taxes on its behalf, and/or to remit such Taxes to the relevant Tax authority. Any Taxes that are collected and/or remitted by Beyond are identified to Subscriber on its invoice records, as applicable. If Beyond has the legal obligation to remit Taxes for which Subscriber is responsible, Beyond will invoice Subscriber and Subscriber will pay that amount unless it provides Beyond with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate tax authority. Subscriber agrees that its sole remedy for Taxes collected by Beyond is a refund from the applicable tax authority. Additionally, in certain jurisdictions, regulations may require that Beyond collect and/or report tax information about Subscriber. For clarity, Beyond is solely responsible for taxes assessable against it based on its income, property, and employees.
6.7. Fee Changes. Beyond reserves the right to change the Fees or applicable charges and to institute new charges and Fees at the end of each Subscription Term, upon thirty (30) days prior notice to Subscriber (which may be sent by email).
6.8. Audit. Beyond has the right, upon reasonable notice to Subscriber, to conduct an audit of Subscriber’s books and records in order to determine compliance with the terms of this Agreement.
7.1. Definition of Confidential Information. "Confidential Information" means any information disclosed electronically, orally, or in writing by a party (the "Disclosing Party") to the other party (the "Receiving Party") that is not generally known to the public and at the time of disclosure is either identified as, or should reasonably be understood by the Receiving Party to be, confidential. Confidential Information includes, but is not limited to, the Services, any Order Form(s) entered into by the parties, Subscriber Data, business plans, product plans and roadmaps, strategies, forecasts, projects and analyses, financial information and fee structures, business processes, methods and models, and technical documentation. Confidential Information does not include information that: (a) is or becomes publicly available without breach of this Agreement by the Receiving Party; (b) was known to the Receiving Party prior to its disclosure by the Disclosing Party; (c) is or was independently developed by the Receiving Party without the use of any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party; or (d) is or was lawfully received by the Receiving Party from a third party under no obligation of confidentiality.
7.2. Protection of Confidential Information. Except as otherwise permitted in writing by the Disclosing Party, the Receiving Party will: (a) use the same degree of care that it uses to protect the confidentiality of its own Confidential Information of like kind (but in no event less than reasonable care) to protect the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party; (b) not use any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party for any purpose not authorized by this Agreement; and (c) except as otherwise authorized by the Disclosing Party in writing, limit access to, and disclosure of, the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to those of its and its Affiliates’ employees and contractors who need that access for purposes consistent with this Agreement and who have signed confidentiality agreements with the Receiving Party containing protections not materially less protective of the Confidential Information than those herein. Neither Party will disclose the terms of this Agreement to any third party other than its Affiliates, legal counsel, and accountants without the other party’s prior written consent; provided that a Party that makes any such disclosure to its Affiliate, legal counsel, or accountants will remain responsible for such Affiliate’s, legal counsel’s, or accountant’s compliance with this “Confidentiality” section. Notwithstanding the foregoing: (i) Beyond may disclose the terms of this Agreement to a subcontractor or Third Party Application provider to the extent necessary to perform Beyond’s obligations related to this Agreement, under terms of confidentiality materially as protective those set forth herein; and (ii) Beyond may provide access to Subscriber's Confidential Information to those its Users, employees, contractors, and agents whom Subscriber permits to use and manage its access and use of the Services.
7.3. Compelled Disclosure. The Receiving Party may access and disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party if legally required to do so in connection with any legal or regulatory proceeding; provided, however, that in such event the Receiving Party will, if lawfully permitted to do so, notify the Disclosing Party within a reasonable time prior to such access or disclosure so as to allow the Disclosing Party an opportunity to seek appropriate protective measures. If the Receiving Party is compelled by law to access or disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information as part of a civil proceeding to which the Disclosing Party is a party, the Disclosing Party will reimburse the Receiving Party for the reasonable costs of compiling and providing secure access to such Confidential Information.
7.4. Equitable Relief. The Receiving Party acknowledges that the remedy at law for breach of this "Confidentiality" section may be inadequate and that, in addition to any other remedy the Disclosing Party may have, it shall be entitled to seek equitable relief, including, without limitation, an injunction or injunctions (without the requirement of posting a bond, other security or any similar requirement or proving any actual damages), to prevent breaches or threatened breaches of this "Confidentiality" Section by the Receiving Party and to enforce the terms and provisions of this section in addition to any other remedy to which the Disclosing Party is entitled at law or in equity.
8. Data Protection. Beyond shall implement and maintain appropriate administrative, organizational, and technical safeguards designed to maintain the security, confidentiality, and integrity of Subscriber Data.

10.3. Indemnification Procedure. The “Subscriber Indemnified Parties” and the “Beyond Indemnified Parties” are referred to as the “Indemnified Party,” and the party obligated to provide the indemnity, as described above, is referred to as the “Indemnifying Party” for purposes of this Section. The obligations of either Party to provide indemnification under this Agreement will be contingent upon: (a) the Indemnified Party promptly giving the Indemnifying Party written notice of any claim for which indemnification is sought (provided that the Indemnified Party’s failure to notify the Indemnifying Party will not diminish the Indemnifying Party’s obligations under this Section, except to the extent that the Indemnifying Party is materially prejudiced as a result of such failure); (b) the Indemnifying Party having sole control of the defense and settlement of any and all claims for which indemnification is sought (provided that no settlement may be entered into without either (i) the consent of the Indemnified Party if such settlement would require any action on the part of the Indemnified Party other than to cease using any allegedly infringing or illegal content or services or (ii) unconditionally releasing the Indemnified Party of all liability); and (3) the Indemnified Party giving the Indemnifying Party all reasonably requested assistance at the indemnifying party’s expense. Subject to the foregoing, an Indemnified Party will at all times have the option to participate in any matter or litigation through counsel of its own selection solely at its own expense.
10.4. Exclusive Remedy. This “Indemnification” section states the Indemnifying Party’s sole liability to, and the Indemnified Party’s exclusive remedy against, the other party for any third party claim described in this section.
11. Limitation of Liability and Exclusion of Damages.
11.1. Limitation of Liability. OTHER THAN AS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF BEYOND OR ITS AFFILIATES, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT PAID OR PAYABLE BY CUSTOMER AND ITS AFFILIATES HEREUNDER FOR THE SERVICES GIVING RISE TO THE LIABILITY IN THE 12 MONTHS PRECEDING THE FIRST EVENT GIVING RISE TO LIABILITY. THE FOREGOING LIMITATION WILL APPLY WHETHER AN ACTION IS IN CONTRACT OR TORT AND REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY BUT WILL NOT LIMIT CUSTOMER AND ITS AFFILIATES’ PAYMENT OBLIGATIONS HEREUNDER.
11.2. Exclusion of Consequential and Related Damages. IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY OR ITS AFFILIATES HAVE ANY LIABILITY TO THE OTHER PARTY FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOST PROFITS, REVENUES, OR LOSS OF USE RESULTING FROM BUSINESS DISRUPTION, OR FOR ANY HOWEVER CAUSED, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR UNDER ANY OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER OR NOT A PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES OR SUCH DAMAGES WERE REASONABLY FORESEEABLE, AND EVEN IF A REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
12.1. Export Compliance. The Service may be subject to export laws and regulations of the United States and other jurisdictions. Beyond and Subscriber each represents that neither it nor any of its Users are named on any U.S. government denied-party list. Subscriber will not permit any User to access or use any Service in a U.S.-embargoed country or region or in violation of any U.S. export law or regulation.
12.2. Anti-Corruption. Neither Party has received or been offered any illegal or improper bribe, kickback, payment, gift, or thing of value from an employee or agent of the other Party in connection with this Agreement. Reasonable gifts and entertainment provided in the ordinary course of business do not violate the above restriction.
12.3. Use Outside the United States of America. The Service is controlled and operated by Beyond from its offices in the United States of America. Except as explicitly set forth herein, Beyond makes no representations that the Services are appropriate for use in other jurisdictions. Those who access or use the Service from other jurisdictions do so at their own risk and are responsible for compliance with local laws. Beyond may offer services in other jurisdictions that are subject to different terms and conditions. In such instances, the terms and conditions governing those non-U.S. services shall take precedence over any conflicting provisions in this Agreement.
12.4. Governing Law; Venue. This Agreement and any disputes arising under it will be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware without regard to its conflict of laws provisions, and each Party consents to the personal jurisdiction and venue of the state or federal courts located in Delaware. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded.
12.5. Informal Dispute Resolution and Arbitration. The parties agree that most disputes can be resolved without resort to litigation. The parties agree to use their best efforts to settle any dispute directly through consultation with each other before initiating a lawsuit or arbitration. If, after good faith negotiations the parties are unable to resolve the dispute, the parties agree that any and all disputes arising out of or in any way relating to this Agreement, including without limitation its existence, validity or termination, shall be resolved according to Illinois law and exclusively by binding arbitration before a single arbitrator with the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Service (JAMS) and pursuant to the then existing arbitration rules at JAMS. If the parties cannot agree upon selection of an arbitrator, then JAMS shall appoint an arbitrator experienced in the enterprise software industry. The place of the arbitration will be Chicago, Illinois unless otherwise agreed upon by the parties. The arbitration will be conducted in English. The arbitrator shall provide detailed written findings of fact and conclusions of law in support of any award. Judgment upon any such award may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. The parties further agree that the arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth herein is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the portions of this "Informal Dispute Resolution and Arbitration" section mandating arbitration shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes. Subscriber may opt out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions by sending written notice to Beyond. The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of the Effective Date of this Agreement between Subscriber and Beyond. If Subscriber opts out of arbitration, Beyond also will not be bound to arbitrate. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either Party shall be entitled to seek injunctive relief as set forth in the “Equitable Relief” section above and to stop unauthorized use of the Service or infringement of intellectual property rights. Disputes, claims, or controversies concerning either Party’s intellectual property rights or claims of piracy or unauthorized use of the Service shall not be subject to arbitration. The parties further agree that the prevailing party in any action or proceeding to enforce any right or provisions under this Agreement, including any arbitration or court proceedings, will be entitled to recover its reasonable costs and attorneys’ fees.
12.6. Notices. Except as otherwise specified in this Agreement, all notices related to this Agreement will be in writing and will be effective upon (a) personal delivery, (b) the second business day after mailing, or (c), except for notices of an indemnifiable claim (“Legal Notices”), which shall clearly be identifiable as Legal Notices, the day of sending by email. All notices to Beyond shall also be sent to email@example.com. Billing-related notices to Subscriber will be addressed to the relevant billing contact designated by Subscriber. All other notices to Subscriber will be addressed to the relevant administrator designated by Subscriber.
12.7. Publicity. Unless otherwise set forth in an Order Form, Beyond may include Subscriber’s name and logo in Beyond’s online customer list and in print and electronic marketing materials. Upon mutual agreement, the parties may issue a press release highlighting Subscriber’s use of the Services.
12.8. Relationship of the Parties. The parties are and shall be independent contractors with respect to all services provided under this Agreement. This Agreement does not create a partnership, franchise, joint venture, agency, fiduciary, or employment relationship between the parties. There are no third-party beneficiaries to this Agreement. As a matter of clarity, a Subscriber's clients are not third-party beneficiaries to Subscriber's rights under this Agreement.
12.9. Severability; No Waiver. In the event that any provision of this Agreement is found to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to any judicial decree or decision, such provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and remain enforceable between the parties. No waiver of any term of this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and a Party’s failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
12.10. Assignment. Neither this Agreement nor any of the rights and licenses granted under this Agreement may be transferred or assigned by either Party without the other Party’s express written consent (not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed); provided, however, that Beyond may assign this Agreement and all Order Forms under this Agreement upon written notice without the other Party’s consent to an Affiliate or to its successor in interest in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of its assets. Any other attempt to transfer or assign this Agreement will be null and void. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement shall bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their respective successors, and permitted assigns.
12.11. Entire Agreement. This Agreement, including all attachments, exhibits, addendums, and any Order Form(s) hereunder, constitutes the entire agreement between the parties concerning the subject matter hereof and supersedes and replaces any prior or contemporaneous representations, understandings and agreements, whether written or oral, with respect to its subject matter. The parties are not relying and have not relied on any representations or warranties whatsoever regarding the subject matter of this agreement, express or implied, except for the representations and warranties set forth in this Agreement. To the extent of any conflict or inconsistency between the provisions of the Agreement and any Order Form, the Order Form shall prevail. Notwithstanding any language to the contrary therein, no terms or conditions stated in a Subscriber purchase order, vendor onboarding process, web portal, or any other Subscriber order documentation shall be incorporated into or form any part of this Agreement, and all such terms or conditions shall be null and void.
