EXECUTION HEREOF BY THE BUYER CONSTITUTES AN AGREEMENT AND ACKNOWLEDGMENT THAT THE RELEASE, INDEMNIFICATION, AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY PROVISIONS CONTAINED IN THIS AGREEMENT COMPLY WITH THE EXPRESS NEGLIGENCE RULE, AS APPLICABLE, AND ARE CONSPICUOUS.
1.2 Specifications and Requirements. Legion Technology shall perform the Services in accordance with the terms and conditions as set forth herein and in the applicable Executed Orders; provided, however, that Legion Technology shall have the authority to determine the manner in which any such Services are to be provided, except to the extent otherwise set forth in an applicable Executed Order.

1.5 Performance by Legion Technology’s Affiliates and Subcontractors. For purposes of this Agreement, performance of the Services by any Affiliate of Legion Technology or by any Third-Party provider engaged by Legion Technology shall be deemed performance by Legion Technology itself.
1.6 Receipt of Services by Client’s Affiliates. To the extent set forth in an applicable Executed Order, Legion Technology shall provide applicable Services to an identified Affiliate of Client. Client shall remain liable for the performance and obligations of any Affiliate receiving Services hereunder, and, in the event of any dispute, controversy, overdue payment or outstanding obligation due here under, Legion Technology may enforce such obligation or bring such claim against Client or the applicable Affiliate, in Legion Technology’s sole discretion.
2.1 Term. The Term of this Agreement shall commence upon the execution of the “Legion Technology Service Order” and shall continue for an initial term set forth and defined within the service order. The Agreement shall automatically renew for recurring monthly terms (each a “Renewal Term” and collectively, the “Term”) unless either Party provides notice at least 30 days before the commencement of any Renewal Term. Each Executed Order hereunder shall commence on the applicable commencement date set forth therein and shall expire in accordance with the terms thereof. Executed Orders shall be subject to termination in accordance with Section 5. Notwithstanding any non-renewal of a Term, this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect with respect to any then outstanding Executed Orders.
- CHANGE ORDER.
3.1 Change Orders. Either Party may request changes to the Services by submitting to the other Party a completed Change Order during the Term of this Agreement. Any request by Client for changes in an Executed Order, including temporary suspension of the Services, must be made in a sufficient amount of time to permit Legion Technology to make the necessary scheduling adjustments. Legion Technology will attempt to minimize any expenses and costs associated with such rescheduling; however, Client agrees to reimburse Legion Technology for all reasonable and actual expenses that cannot be avoided (such as cancellation fees, non-refundable airline tickets, etc.) as a result of such rescheduling and changes in the Executed Order. Legion Technology will resume performance of the Services as soon as reasonably practicable based on Legion Technology’s available resources and obligations to other clients. No Change Order will be binding on the Parties unless agreed upon in writing by both Parties.
3.2 Pending Change Orders. Except to the extent changed by the Change Order, the scope of Services and Service Fees, as provided herein and in the then-current Executed Order, shall remain in full force and and effect.
- SERVICE FEES.
4.1 Fees. Client shall pay for the Services invoiced under this Agreement in accordance with the “Fees” set forth in each applicable Executed Order.
4.2 Taxes. Legion Technology’s fees do not include any sales tax, value added tax, or any other tax, levy, fee, charge or duty. Client shall be responsible for the payment of all such taxes, levies, fees, charges and duties listed above. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Client shall not be responsible for paying any taxes upon the real, personal, or intangible property of Legion Technology, or upon the net income or profits of Legion Technology. Although not Legion Technology’s obligation, in the event Legion Technology pays any such tax or assessment to any relevant tax authorities, Client will reimburse Legion Technology within thirty (30) days after receipt of written proof of payment. Client hereby agrees to indemnify Legion Technology for and hold it harmless from any taxes and related costs, interest and penalties paid or payable by Legion Technology other than taxes related to the income of Legion Technology.
4.3 Invoicing Address. Invoices to Client shall be sent to the address set forth on the Executed Order.
4.4 Due Date. Except as set forth in an applicable Executed Order, all Fees are due when invoiced and in any event Client shall pay undisputed invoice amounts within fifteen (15) days of the date of invoice. It is the intention of the Parties that all Fees payable by Client under this Agreement shall be, and continue to be, payable through out the Term hereof.
4.5 Late Payments. Client’s payment for Services shall be deemed late when Client fails to remit payment, which is not being disputed in good faith, within thirty (30) days of the date of invoice. Any late payment shall bear interest at the rate of one and one half percent (1½ %) per month or the maximum rate allowed under law, whichever is lower, or fraction thereof, from the due date until paid in full. Disputed amounts, if the dispute is resolved in favor of Legion Technology, shall bear interest from the due date until paid. Notwithstanding any other provision under this Agreement, any undisputed invoice, or undisputed portion thereof, not paid within forty-five (45) days may result in termination or suspension of Services. Such interruption shall not relieve Client from its obligation to pay the undisputed amounts due and owing. Legion Technology also reserves the right to assert appropriate liens to ensure payment. Client agrees to reimburse Legion Technology its reasonable expenses, including attorney and other fees, incurred in collecting any amounts due and owing to Legion Technology.
4.6 Expenses. Client shall reimburse Legion Technology for reasonable, actual, documented expenses incurred by Legion Technology associated with the Services and identified in an applicable Executed Order.
5.1 For Cause. In the event either Party fails to perform any of its material obligations under an Executed Order, including paying any amount due under an Executed Order, and the defaulting Party fails to substantially cure such default within forty-five (45) days after receiving written notice from the non-defaulting Party specifying the nature of the default, then the non-defaulting Party may, by giving written notice to the other Party, terminate the applicable Executed Order as of the date specified in such notice of termination. If Client is the defaulting Party, Legion Technology may, upon written notice to Client, terminate this Agreement and all outstanding Executed Orders as of the date specified in such notice of termination. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Client shall pay Legion Technology for Services already performed prior to the date of termination.
5.2 For Insolvency. If either Party becomes or is declared insolvent or bankrupt, is subject to any proceedings relating to its liquidation, insolvency, or for the appointment of a receiver or similar officer for it, makes an assignment for the benefit of all or substantially all of its creditors, or enters into an agreement for the composition, renewal, or readjustment of all or substantially all of its obligations, then the other Party, by giving written notice to such Party, may terminate this Agreement and all outstanding Executed Orders as of the date specified in such notice of termination.
5.3 For Convenience. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Client may terminate the Services prior to the end of the Term such termination to be effective as of the date stated in Client’s written notice to Legion Technology; provided, however, that all fees otherwise due and payable through the end of the Term shall nonetheless be due and payable within the earlier of fifteen (15) days following the effective date of termination or net thirty (30) days from date of Legion Technology’s invoice.
5.4 Effects of Termination. Notwithstanding any termination of the Services, Client shall be liable for payment to Legion Technology for all Services provided to the date of termination and for all actual expenses incurred to the effective time of any such termination. Client shall also reimburse Legion Technology for all expenses, including travel that cannot be avoided upon termination of the Services by Client.
