If, notwithstanding ServiceChannel’s efforts, Customer is unable or unwilling to abide by a contractual usage limit, Customer will execute a Product Order Form for additional quantities of the applicable Services or ServiceChannel Content promptly upon ServiceChannel’s request, and/or pay any invoice for excess usage in accordance with Section 5.2 (Invoicing and Payment).

4. SERVICE CONTRACTORS
4.1 Acquisition of Non-ServiceChannel Products and Services. Through the Services, Customer may request, track and administer contractor services of Service Contractors or other third parties such as call centers. Any acquisition by Customer of third-party data, products or services, and any exchange of data between Customer and any applicable party (including a Service Contractor), is solely between Customer and the applicable third party. ServiceChannel does not warrant or support any such products or services of Service Contractors, whether or not they are designated by ServiceChannel as “certified” or otherwise, except as specified in a Product Order Form.
4.2 Access to Customer Data. If Customer enables Service Contractors to access Customer Data for use with a Service, Customer grants ServiceChannel permission to allow such party to access Customer Data as required for the Service. ServiceChannel is not responsible for any disclosure, modification or deletion of Customer Data resulting from such access.
4.3 Relationship with Service Contractors. ServiceChannel may charge a third-party service contractor fees for access, processing transactions, reports or integrations or providing and posting specific data content in the ordinary course of business between ServiceChannel and such Service Contractor. ServiceChannel does not assess the adequacy of the repairs or services rendered by Service Contractors who are wholly responsible to Customer with respect thereto. Any question concerning the accuracy of Customer Data or any omission therein shall be addressed to Customer or the applicable Service Contractor who rendered (or was supposed to supply or perform) the services, parts or repairs in question. In addition, ServiceChannel shall have the right to market other services and business tools to Service Contractors for fees.
4.4 Third-Party Websites. If Customer accesses the website content or, purchases goods or services from or participates in promotions of advertisers, sponsors or any party other than ServiceChannel through the Services, any such activity and any terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such activity is done solely at Customer’s own discretion and risk and is governed solely by the terms between Customer and the applicable third party. Customer should refer to the policies posted by third-party websites regarding privacy and other topics before accessing or using such websites. ServiceChannel shall have no liability or obligation, and does not endorse or accept any responsibility, for the contents or use of third-party websites or any transactions completed with third parties. ServiceChannel may provide such links and/or access to third-party website content only as a convenience, and the inclusion of any link or provision of access does not imply endorsement by ServiceChannel of the linked or otherwise accessible website, notwithstanding the inclusion on such site of the trademarks of ServiceChannel or its Affiliates or subcontractors.
5. FEES AND PAYMENT FOR SERVICES
5.1 Fees. Customer will pay all fees specified in Product Order Forms. Except as otherwise specified herein or in a Product Order Form, (a) fees are based on Services purchased and not actual usage, (b) payment obligations are non-cancelable and fees paid are non-refundable, (c) quantities purchased cannot be decreased during the relevant subscription term other than as explicitly provided herein and (d) monthly fees will continue to accrue for all Active Locations so long as they remain so designated and will be adjusted on a monthly basis to reflect any increase or decrease therein, provided that monthly fees will be equal to the greater of those due for the number of Active Locations or Contracted Locations.
5.2 Invoicing and Payment. Unless otherwise stated in an applicable Product Order Form, ServiceChannel will, through the Services, (a) for annual fees, provide Customer, on the Execution Date and each anniversary of the Contract Start Date, with an invoice reflecting the fees due and (b) for monthly fees, on a monthly basis, provide Customer, on a monthly basis, with an single invoice reflecting the fees due for services rendered, based upon the greater of the number of Active Locations or the number of Contracted Locations as calculated on the last day of the prior month, for the current month’s service period. Unless otherwise stated in the Product Order Form, invoiced charges are due net thirty (30) days from the invoice date. If ServiceChannel detects a difference between the fees charged to Customer pursuant to a particular monthly invoice and the fees due from Customer in accordance with the number of Active Locations during such month (with such total equal to the maximum number of Active Locations during such month), ServiceChannel will debit or credit the subsequent monthly invoice to Customer accordingly. Customer is responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information to ServiceChannel, including valid credit card information (if applicable), and notifying ServiceChannel of any changes to such information. If Customer provides credit card information to ServiceChannel, Customer authorizes ServiceChannel to charge such credit card for all Services for the applicable initial subscription term(s) and any renewals thereof, in accordance with the applicable Product Order Form(s) and this Agreement.
5.3 Overdue Charges. If any invoiced amount is not received by ServiceChannel by the due date, then without limiting ServiceChannel’s rights or remedies, (a) those charges may accrue late interest at the rate of one and one-half percent (1.5%) of the outstanding balance per month, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, and/or (b) ServiceChannel may condition future subscription renewals and Product Order Forms on payment terms shorter than those specified in Section 5.2 (Invoicing and Payment).
5.4 Suspension of Service and Acceleration. If any amount owing by Customer under this or any other agreement for ServiceChannel services is thirty (30) or more days overdue, ServiceChannel may, without limiting ServiceChannel’s other rights and remedies, accelerate Customer’s unpaid fee obligations under such agreements through the remaining term(s) thereof so that all such obligations become immediately due and payable and suspend ServiceChannel’s services to Customer until such amounts are paid in full. ServiceChannel will give Customer at least ten (10) days’ prior notice that Customer’s account is overdue, in accordance with Section 12.4 (Notice), before suspending services to Customer.
5.5 Payment Disputes. ServiceChannel will not exercise its rights under Sections 5.3 (Overdue Charges) or 5.4 (Suspension of Service and Acceleration) above only if Customer notifies ServiceChannel of a payment dispute within ten (10) days of receipt of the applicable invoice, is disputing the applicable charges reasonably and in good faith and is cooperating diligently to resolve the dispute. If a dispute is not raised within such period, the invoice shall be deemed to have been accepted by Customer.
5.6 Taxes. ServiceChannel’s fees do not include any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including, for example, value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes, assessable by any jurisdiction whatsoever (collectively, “Taxes”). Customer is responsible for paying all Taxes associated with Customer’s purchases hereunder. If ServiceChannel has the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which Customer is responsible under this Section 5.6, ServiceChannel will invoice Customer and Customer will pay that amount unless Customer provides ServiceChannel with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. For clarity, ServiceChannel is solely responsible for Taxes assessable against ServiceChannel based on ServiceChannel’s income, property and employees, and not for any other Taxes, including without limitation any sales taxes in connection with services or materials provided to Customer by third parties, including Service Contractors, or any fees or other amounts payable to or requested by any third parties in connection therewith.
5.7 Future Functionality. Customer agrees that Customer’s purchases are not contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or features, or dependent on any oral or written public comments made by ServiceChannel regarding future functionality or features.
