2 PAYMENT, INVOICING, FEES and TAXES

2.1 Charges. Unless otherwise stated in the SOW, Supplemental Terms, or order, prices are quoted on a consumption and/or subscription basis and are expressed in local currency. Pricing herein does not include charges for taxes, fees, and government-imposed surcharges, which may be included in the invoices.  All fees due to Avaya under these Terms are non-cancellable and the sums paid are non-refundable, except as otherwise expressly provided in these Terms. By subscribing to the Service, Customer authorizes Avaya to investigate Customer’s credit worthiness and agrees, from time to time, to provide appropriate authorizations and financial information as Avaya may reasonably request for this purpose. Payments must be made at the address designated on the invoice or other such place as Avaya may designate. Avaya invoices and Customer payments will be processed via Avaya’s electronic bill application. Unless otherwise stated in the Supplemental Terms, Services will be billed to Customer monthly in arrears by Avaya and Customer shall pay all fees due hereunder within thirty (30) calendar days of the date of the invoice.

2.2 If Customer uses a credit card or other payment mechanism for a transaction, Customer’s account is billed at the time of or shortly after Customer’s transaction. In such case, Customer hereby authorizes Avaya or its payment processor to bill Customer’s credit card or other payment mechanism as may be approved by Avaya in advance or on a periodic basis in accordance with the terms on the order or Service Description or SOW. Customer will provide Avaya with (and maintain) valid and updated credit card information or other payment information reasonably acceptable to Avaya. If a credit card is declined and no replacement card has been entered, Customer’s Subscription and access to the Service will be suspended, and Customer agrees to pay any outstanding fees within thirty (30) Business Days after receiving notification from Avaya.  If the credit card is accepted on any billing attempt, the Subscription billing date will remain the same as the original date for subsequent months.  Receipt by Avaya’s payment processor of final good funds in settlement of Customer’s credit card or other payment transaction will satisfy Customer’s payment obligation. Subject to certain credit requirements as determined by Avaya, Avaya may agree to allow Customer to pay amounts due hereunder in arrears. In such event, Customer will make all of the payments due hereunder within thirty (30) calendar days of the date of the invoice.  Customer acknowledges and agrees that if applicable, Customer’s credit card on file or other payment mechanism will be automatically charged recurring renewal fees on a monthly basis during the Service Period unless Customer cancels the Subscription (as defined herein).  If Customer cancels a Subscription, Customer will not be entitled to a refund or a credit for any fees already due or paid, and Customer may be subject to termination fees as further outlined in the Service Description. 

2.3 In the event Customer adds or removes users or if applicable, numbers, during a month, Avaya will charge Customer a prorated portion of the per-user Subscription fees for such added or removed user or number. 

2.4 Late Payments. Avaya may suspend licenses and performance of the Services for which payment is overdue until the overdue amount is paid in full or otherwise terminate an order for Services or these Terms. Overdue payments will be subject to a late payment charge of the lesser of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month (19.56% per annum) or the maximum rate allowed by applicable law. Customer will reimburse Avaya for reasonable attorneys’ fees and any other costs associated with collecting delinquent payments.

2.5 Payment Disputes. Customer must dispute any charges for the Services in writing within fifteen (15) (or other time as expressly set forth in the Supplemental Terms or SOW) calendar days after the date of the invoice at issue; otherwise, notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Customer waives any dispute or further recourse with respect to the applicable charges. Any disputes by Customer must be brought in good faith.  Payments of any disputed amount are due and payable upon resolution. 

2.6 Price Changes. Avaya reserves the right to change the fees associated with any Services upon thirty (30) calendar days advance written notice. Customer’s continued use of the Service after any price change becomes effective constitutes Customer acceptance of the modified fees, and such amounts shall apply as of the first day of the next month after the fee change was posted or communicated to Customer.

2.7 Taxes. Unless Customer provides Avaya with a current tax exemption certificate, Customer is solely responsible for paying all legally required taxes, including without limitation any sales, use, excise or other taxes and fees which may be levied upon the Service, except for any (a) taxes that are imposed on, measured by, or based upon net income of Avaya; and (b) taxes in the nature of franchise, doing business, or capital stock taxes if such taxes are based on or measured by capital stock value, par value or net worth of Avaya and are imposed by any taxing jurisdiction in which Avaya is subject to such taxes as a result of transactions or activities not related to these Terms.  If Customer is required to bear a tax pursuant to this Section or make any withholding, then Customer will pay such tax and any additional amounts as are necessary to ensure that the net amounts received by Avaya hereunder, after all such payments or withholdings, equal the amounts to which Avaya is otherwise entitled under these Terms as if such tax or withholding did not exist.

2.8 Regulatory Fees.  Avaya may charge Customer the following regulatory fees:


✓ Federal and State Universal Service Fee.  Avaya may be required to make contributions to the Federal and certain state Universal Service Funds (USF), which provide support to promote access to telecommunications services at reasonable rates for those living in rural and high-cost areas, income-eligible consumers, rural health care facilities, and schools and libraries.  Avaya is permitted but not required to recover such costs from its customers.  The Federal Communications Commission sets the Federal USF rates on a quarterly basis and they are subject to change each quarter.

✓ Emergency Services Fee. This fee is imposed by local governments to help pay for emergency services such as fire and rescue.

✓ 911 Service Fee. Avaya may charge a per-DID/ phone number fee to recover Avaya’s costs directly associated with providing 911 and E911 to its customers.

✓ Regulatory Recovery Fee. Avaya may charge a monthly regulatory recovery fee to offset costs incurred by Avaya in complying with obligations imposed by, and inquiries made by, federal, state and municipal regulatory bodies/governments and related legal and billing expenses. This fee is not a tax or charge required or assessed by any government. If assessed by Avaya, the regulatory recovery fee will apply to every DID/ phone number assigned to Customer, including toll free and virtual numbers.

✓ Other Fees.  Customer agrees to pay any other fees that may be levied on the Service which are chargeable to customers by any governmental authority. 

In addition to Customer’s obligation to pay taxes in accordance with Section 2.7, Customer will be responsible for the payment of all governmental assessments, surcharges and fees pertaining to the use of the Service.  Customer will be responsible for all governmental assessments, surcharges and regulatory fees that are imposed on Avaya or any Affiliate of Avaya incident to the provision or sale of the Service, including, but not limited to, any government assessment or regulatory fees imposed on Avaya as a result of a material change in the manner in which the Service or Avaya is regulated.

18 Governing Law, DISPUTE RESOLUTION

18.1 Governing Law. Any Dispute under these Terms will be governed by the laws of the State of New York, excluding both conflict of law principles and the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.

18.2 Dispute Resolution. In the event of any Dispute, the disputing party shall give the other party written notice of the Dispute. The parties will attempt in good faith to resolve each controversy or claim within thirty (30) days, (or other mutually agreed period), following the delivery of notice, by referral to designated representatives of the parties authorized to negotiate resolution thereof.

18.3 Arbitration of Non-US Disputes. Any Dispute that: (i) arose anywhere other than in the United States or is based upon an alleged breach committed anywhere other than in the United States; (ii) cannot be settled under the procedures and within the timeframe set forth in Section18.2; and (iii) is not based upon non-payment, will be conclusively resolved by a final and binding arbitration proceeding in accordance with the Rules of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce by a single arbitrator appointed by the parties or (failing agreement) by an arbitrator appointed by the President of the International Chamber of Commerce, except that if the aggregate claims, cross claims and counterclaims by any one party against the other party exceed One Million US Dollars ($1,000,000.00) at the time all such claims  are filed, the proceeding will be held in accordance with the Rules of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce by a panel of three (3) arbitrator(s) appointed in accordance with the Rules of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce. The arbitration will be conducted in the English language, at a location agreed by the parties or (failing agreement) ordered by the arbitrator(s). The arbitrator(s) will have authority only to award compensatory damages within the scope of the limitations of Section 10 (Limitation of Liability) and will not award punitive or exemplary damages. The arbitrator(s) will not have the authority to limit, expand or otherwise modify these Terms. The ruling by the arbitrator(s) will be final and binding on the parties and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties or any of their assets. The parties will evenly split the cost of the arbitrator(s)’ fees but will each bear their own attorneys' fees and other costs associated with the arbitration. The parties, their representatives, other participants and the arbitrator(s) will hold the existence, content and results of the arbitration in strict confidence to the fullest extent permitted by law. Any disclosure of the existence, content and results of the arbitration will be as limited and narrowed as required to comply with the applicable law. By way of illustration, if the applicable law mandates the disclosure of the monetary amount of an arbitration award only, the underlying opinion or rationale for that award may not be disclosed.

18.4 Choice of Forum for US Disputes. If a Dispute arises in the United States or is based upon an alleged breach committed in the United States and cannot be settled under Section 18.2, then either party may bring an action or proceeding solely in either the Supreme Court of the State of New York, New York County, or the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. Except as otherwise stated in Section 18.1 each party consents to the exclusive jurisdiction of those courts, including their appellate courts, for the purpose of all actions and proceedings arising out of or relating to these Terms.

18.5 Injunctive Relief. Nothing in these Terms will be construed to preclude either party from seeking provisional remedies, including, but not limited to, temporary restraining orders and preliminary injunctions from any court of competent jurisdiction in order to protect its rights, including its rights pending arbitration, at any time. The parties agree that the arbitration provision in Section 18.3 may be enforced by injunction or other equitable order, and no bond or security of any kind will be required with respect to any such injunction or order.

18.6 Time Limit. Actions on Disputes between the parties must be brought in accordance with this Section within two (2) years after the cause of action arises. For the avoidance of doubt, this time limit does not trump the fifteen (15) day period in Section 2.5, Payment Disputes.

18.7 Compliance. Customer and Avaya will cause their Affiliates to comply with the dispute resolution procedures described in this Section.

18.8 Disputes with Other Users. Customer is solely responsible for Customer’s interactions with third parties with whom it uses the Service to interact. Avaya will have no liability with respect to such Customer interactions or disputes that may arise between Customer and such third parties. Avaya reserves the right, but has no obligation, to become involved with disputes between Customer and any such third party in the event that Avaya’s interests are impacted.

Any terms used in these Add-on Services Terms without defining them have the definitions given to them in the General Terms.


1 SCOPE; order of precedence; CHANGES

1.1 Services Provided. Avaya will provide the Add-on Services as specified in an order, and as described in a SOW). Add-on Services may include installation and configuration, onboarding, management, consulting and other services where Avaya creates and delivers Deliverables and/or completes other defined objectives or a Project Phase on a milestone basis, T&M basis or other basis (“T&M Services”). Deliverables do not include generally available hardware and Software or any installation and configuration of generally available Software and hardware. To the extent a SOW provides that Avaya will deliver generally available Avaya products and related services, such products and services must be purchased pursuant to a separate purchase agreement with Avaya.

1.2 Order of Precedence. Specific to the Services provided under this Schedule 1, unless otherwise provided for in these Add-on Services Supplemental Terms, in the event of conflict among the General Terms, the Supplemental Terms, these Add-on Services Terms, any SOW and any ancillary schedules to or documents referenced in a SOW, the order of precedence is: (i)  these Add-on Services Terms; (ii) the General Terms; (iii) the Supplemental Terms, (iv) any SOW; and (v) ancillary documents; except that in relation to limitations of liability, licensing provisions, Intellectual Property rights and Intellectual Property rights indemnification, the provisions contained in the General Terms will always take priority.

1.3 Changes. Changes in Add-on Services will be made in accordance with Avaya's change process defined in the SOW.

2 ACCEPTANCE PROCEDURES

2.1 T&M Services. T&M Services are deemed accepted upon performance.

2.2 SOW without Acceptance Procedures. Where the SOW does not contain specific acceptance criteria, Add-on Services are deemed accepted upon the earlier of either: (i) production use (unless Avaya expressly states otherwise in the Service Description or SOW), (ii) Avaya providing notice of completion to Customer; or (iii) Customer signature of an acceptance certificate.

2.3 SOW with Acceptance Procedures.  Add-On Services or a Project Phase as applicable, are deemed accepted upon the earlier of either: (i) the end of the Acceptance Period as set out in the SOW or Order (as applicable), unless before the end of the Acceptance Period Avaya has received from Customer a Rejection Notice; or (ii) Customer signature of an acceptance certificate. If Add-On Services, Deliverable and/or Project Phase, as applicable, fails to conform to the agreed acceptance criteria and Avaya has received a Rejection Notice, then Avaya will re-perform the non-conforming Add-On Services, Deliverable  and/or Project Phase, as applicable, and re-submit it for acceptance as described above. If, after resubmission, Add-On Services, Deliverable and/or Project Phase, as applicable, fail to conform to the agreed acceptance criteria in any material respect, then Customer’s remedies will be either to: (a) terminate the non-conforming Add-On Services, Deliverable and/or Project Phase, as applicable, and return all non-conforming Deliverables for a refund of fees paid under the SOW for the non-conforming Add-On Services, Deliverable and/or Project Phase; or (b) accept the Add-On Services, Deliverable and/or Project Phase, as applicable, subject to the warranties and remedies described in this Schedule 1.  Customer will be deemed to have accepted the applicable Add-On Services, Deliverable and/or Project Phase in accordance with subsection (b) above if, Avaya has not received a written termination notice within ten (10) days of Avaya’s resubmission for acceptance.

2.4 Acceptance certificate.  Upon acceptance or deemed acceptance in accordance with this Section 2, if requested by Avaya, Customer will sign and return an acceptance certificate without delay. Acceptance certificates may be provided by Customer to Avaya by electronic mail, at the email address provided by Avaya to Customer from time to time, or other agreed means of electronic communication.

3 Project Delays. If performance of Add-on Services is delayed for any reason at the request of Customer (including its agents or any third parties acting on its behalf), Avaya may invoice and Customer agrees to pay Avaya, for any additional costs reasonably incurred by Avaya as a direct result of such delay, including, if applicable, rescheduling costs.
