WHEREAS, the Parties entered into that certain Telecommunications Services Agreement (the “Master Agreement”) pursuant to which Customer may order certain Services provided by C Spire;
WHEREAS, C Spire is a reseller of certain Microsoft software products (collectively referred to herein as the “Software”) pursuant to that certain Microsoft Cloud Reseller Agreement (the “Reseller Agreement”); and
WHEREAS, Customer desires to purchase Microsoft Software License(s) (the “Software License(s)”) related to certain Microsoft software products (the “Software”) from C Spire and C Spire desires to sell Microsoft Software License(s) to Customer.
NOW THEREFORE, the Parties agree as follows:
1. SOFTWARE AND SERVICES:
1.1 Software Purchase. Customer will submit a Service Agreement order form in the form utilized under the Master Agreement (the “Purchase Order”) designating the Software License(s) to be purchased by Customer and identifying the Software License(s) purchased as Bundled Software or Unbundled Software, each as defined below. C Spire shall sell the Software License(s) to Customer pursuant to the fees set forth in Section 2 below.
1.2 Microsoft Cloud Agreement. In conjunction with submission of the Purchase Order, and as a condition to C Spire’s obligation to sell the Software License(s) to Customer, Customer shall execute and deliver to C Spire the Microsoft Cloud Agreement (Volume Licensing) in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A or such other form as may be requested by Microsoft (the “Microsoft EULA”).
1.3 Support. C Spire will use commercially reasonable efforts to assist Customer, through Customer’s authorized contact(s), with resolving issues related to the Software. Only Customer’s authorized account contact(s) may request technical support. C Spire’s technical support response time depends on the complexity of the inquiry and support request volume. For more information visit C Spire’s technical support page at www.cspire.com/business/support.jsp. C Spire’s obligation to provide technical support does not apply to any service impacting events related to the Software. C Spire reserves the right to redirect or escalate support requests to Microsoft in its sole and absolute discretion. C Spire does not guarantee compatibility of the Software with any specific configuration of hardware or software. C Spire encourages Customer to discuss any technical and compatibility issues with C Spire’s technical support personnel.
1.3 Term. The Term of this Service Agreement with respect to Bundled Software, as defined below, shall be thirty-six (36) calendar months. The Term with respect to Bundled Software shall automatically renew for additional twelve (12) month Terms, unless Customer provides C Spire with written notice of termination at least sixty (60) days prior to expiration of the then applicable Term. The Term of this Service Agreement with respect to Unbundled Software, as defined below, shall be one (1) month. The Term with respect to Unbundled Software shall automatically renew for successive one-month Terms, unless Customer provides C Spire with written notice of termination at least thirty (30) days prior to expiration of the then applicable Term. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the Parties may agree upon a Term other than as set forth in this Section 1.3 in the Purchase Order.
1.4 Termination for Cause. If a Party breaches any term of this Service Agreement, the other Party can terminate this Service Agreement for cause. The terminating Party will give the breaching Party not less than thirty (30) days’ written notice and opportunity to cure the breach if the cause for termination is curable. A Party will be allowed to cure a breach once, provide that if a Party breaches the Service Agreement for the same reason as a prior breach, such as late payment, then the other Party may terminate the Service Agreement immediately. If the cause for termination is not curable, termination is effective immediately upon written notice from the terminating Party. Disclosure of confidential information including the disclosure of specially negotiated Customer terms, misappropriation of C Spire’s intellectual property, and insolvency, bankruptcy or other similar proceedings, are grounds for immediate termination.
1.5 Termination without Cause. Either Party may terminate this Service Agreement at any time upon thirty (30) days’ prior written notice to the other Party; provided, however, that in the event Customer terminates this Service Agreement with respect to Bundled Software prior to the end of the then-applicable Term, Customer shall pay to C Spire an amount equal to the total monthly service fees applicable pursuant to Section 2 below multiplied by the number of months remaining in the Term.
1.6 Microsoft Termination. C Spire may terminate this Service Agreement immediately upon written notice to Customer in the event that Microsoft terminates the Reseller Agreement or the Microsoft EULA.
2. CUSTOMER FEES
2.1 Bundled Fees. In the event that Customer purchases Software in conjunction with the purchase of certain other Services under the Master Agreement as set forth below (such Software being referred to herein as “Bundled Software”) the following monthly rates will apply:
2.1.1 Secure Office Bundle. In the event Customer purchasers a bundle of Services including Small Business Internet, Security as a Service (Hosted Firewall – Standard Package), and the Software (designated Microsoft Office 365 Business Premium licenses), then Customer’s monthly service fee for the Secure Small Business Bundle shall be $499.00 per month, excluding applicable taxes and fees.
2.1.2 Secure Office with Voice Bundle. In the event Customer purchasers a bundle of Services including Small Business Internet, Security as a Service (Hosted Firewall – Standard Package), IPV Service (5 Lines with VVX400 Phones) and the Software (designated Microsoft Office 365 Business Premium licenses), then Customer’s monthly service fee for the Secure Small Business IPV Bundle shall be $649.00 per month, excluding applicable taxes and fees.
2.1.3 Licensed User Limitation. Bundled Software will entitle Customer to five (5) licensed users of the Software in the form of Microsoft Office 365 Business Premium licenses. Any licensed users in excess of that, or licenses for other named SKUs of the Software required by Customer may be purchased as Unbundled Software pursuant to Section 2.2 hereof.
2.2 Unbundled Fees. In the event that Customer purchases Software that is not bundled with other Services as set forth in Section 2.1 above (such Software being referred to herein as “Unbundled Software”) then Customer’s monthly license fee per user of the Software shall be as set forth in Exhibit B attached hereto. Customer may add or remove licensed users for Unbundled Software, provided, however, that Customer shall pay C Spire the monthly license fee for each licensed user that is licensed to use the Software during the applicable monthly billing period, regardless of when the user becomes licensed within that monthly billing period. The monthly per user license fee applicable to Unbundled Software at the time of execution of an applicable Purchase Order shall remain valid for twelve (12) months from the date of such Purchase Order, after which time C Spire reserves the right to adjust the monthly per user license fee.
2.3 Billing. C Spire shall invoice Customer on a monthly basis for the fees owed pursuant to a Purchaser Order and Customer’s payment for each invoice shall be received by Company within thirty (30) days of the invoice date (“Due Date”). If any invoice is not paid in full within ten (10) days after the Due Date, then Customer shall also pay a late charge equal to the lesser of 1.5% of the unpaid balance of the invoice per month or the maximum lawful rate under applicable state law. Fees listed herein are not inclusive of any applicable taxes, levies or surcharges. Any applicable surcharge, federal, state, local, excise, or sales tax or similar levy, chargeable to or against C Spire because of the Software or Services provided hereunder by C Spire to Customer shall be the responsibility of Customer.
