(“Netsertive”) will provide Client and if applicable, its Qualified Channel Partners (as defined below) certain digital marketing and promotional services as further described in one or more Quotes as mutually agreed by the parties from time to time, as modified by Change Orders from time to time (the “Services”). Services will utilize Netsertive’s proprietary technology, service networks and skilled marketing professionals. Further, in connection with the Services, Netsertive is authorized to determine how to allocate any Digital Marketing Funds on Client’s behalf to best drive performance and achievement of Client objectives as measured by Netsertive’s systems. Services are provided only for the benefit of Client and its Qualified Channel Partners, if any. Except as expressly permitted herein, Client may not resell or provide the Services to or for the benefit of any other third party or permit any third party to use the Services. The terms and conditions set forth herein shall govern all such Services. In the event of any conflict between these terms and conditions and the Quote, the Quote will govern. At any time during the term of Services set forth in a Quote, Client may request future additions or modifications to the Services (each a “Change”). No Change shall be considered as an addition or modification to the Services, except pursuant to a written change order mutually agreed by the parties (a “Change Order”). Any Change Order can be affected by email and counter-email or through other written communications.

(b) Client may identify certain retailers, resellers, distributors or dealers (“Channel Partners”) to participate in Client’s media campaign(s) and receive Services from Netsertive. The applicable Quote will provide the requirements for such Channel Partners to be eligible to participate in such media campaigns and receive Services hereunder, which requirements may include the execution and delivery by such Channel Partners of a Digital Marketing Agreement in form and substance satisfactory to Netsertive (an eligible channel partner who has met such requirements is referred to herein as a “Qualified Channel Partner”).

2. Fees and payment.

(a) The fee for Services is as set forth on the Quote applicable thereto (such fee or fees (including any Digital Marketing Funds, as described below), collectively, the “Service Fee”). The Service Fee may include an amount of “Digital Marketing Funds”, as specified on the Quote. Netsertive will consult with Client to determine the appropriate level of Digital Marketing Funds based on the Client’s business objectives and factors such as, among other things, market share and the size of the applicable market.

Client is responsible for taxes incurred in connection with the Services, including any sales and use taxes, but not any taxes payable on the net income of Netsertive.
