From time to time, Lead Commerce, in its sole discretion, may provide Partner with access to a form, link or landing page (the "Lead Form") to be used by Partner to refer potential end user customers ("Leads") for Lead Commerce products and services ("Products").

In consideration of Partner's efforts hereunder, Lead Commerce shall pay Partner certain referral fees as agreed upon by the parties.
B.Referral Customers. The term "Referral Customer" means each unique Lead that (i) is referred by Partner through the Partner-specific Lead Form during the Referral Program Term, (ii) enters into a new contract with Lead Commerce for the purchase of Product during the Referral Program Term as a direct result of Partner's promotion of such Product under the Referral Program and (iii) is not a current or former end user customer of any Product.

Partner is not expected to provide any customer support to Referral Customers. At any time Lead Commerce, in its sole discretion, may refuse to provide any Products to any Leads or Referral Customers.

Partner shall display and use the Marketing Materials solely for the purpose of marketing and promoting the Program and shall not alter, amend, adapt or translate the Marketing Materials without Lead Commerce's prior written consent.

E. Referral Fees. Lead Commerce shall pay Partner the fees agreed upon by the parties (the "Referral Fees") based on recurring monthly subscription revenue collected by Lead Commerce from Referral Customers for the purchase of Product during the Referral Program Term as a direct result of Partner's promotion of such Product under the Referral Program. For avoidance of doubt, setup and other one-time fees are not included in the calculation of Referral Fees. Within thirty (30) days following the end of each calendar quarter, Lead Commerce shall provide with a report of such subscription revenue collected from Referral Customers during such quarter accompanied by payment of accrued Referral Fees for such quarter subject to a 30-day retention period for each new Referral Customer to account for new customer cancellations.

Partner may price the Products at its sole discretion.

Additionally, Lead Commerce may invoice Partner for all amounts associated with such declined credit card information. All such invoiced amounts properly payable to Lead Commerce shall be due immediately upon Partner's receipt of Lead Commerce's invoice. If at any time there is a dispute over a credit card billing, or if any transaction billed by Lead Commerce to Partner's credit card is charged back: 1. Partner will promptly attempt to resolve the billing dispute, or cure the chargeback; 2. If Partner is unable to resolve in good faith any billing dispute or cure any charge back in a timely manner, Lead Commerce, in its sole discretion, may terminate Partner's participation in the VAR Program. Additionally, Lead Commerce may invoice Partner for all amounts associated with such unresolved billing dispute or uncured charge back. All such invoiced amounts properly payable to Lead Commerce shall be due immediately upon Partner's receipt of Lead Commerce's invoice; and 3. Partner will, as necessary or as requested by Lead Commerce, provide updated credit card information. Failure to timely provide updated credit card information constitutes a material breach of the Agreement, and in such event Lead Commerce may, in its sole discretion, terminate Partner's participation in the VAR Program.
F. Effect of Termination. Upon termination of the VAR Program for any reason, Partner's license to market and sell the Products terminates immediately, Partner shall immediately pay all fees and charges accrued under this Agreement prior to the termination date and Lead Commerce may take all actions necessary to disable participation in the VAR Program. Any accrued payment obligations survive termination or expiration of Partner's participation in the VAR Program.
G. Effect of Termination on End User Agreement. Upon termination of Partner's participation in the VAR Program, for any reason, Lead Commerce, in its sole discretion, may continue to provide service to any End Users still under contract with Partner at the time of termination of this Agreement between Lead Commerce and Partner. Termination of Partner's participation in the VAR Program will cause a termination of any agreement between Partner and its End Users.
