This Prisync Referral Partner Agreement (the “Partner Agreement“) is between the applicable Partner (“you” or “Partner“), and Prisync. If you are agreeing to this Partner Agreement not as an individual but on behalf of your company, then “Partner” or “you” means your company, and you are binding your company to this Partner Agreement.
The Agreement shall become binding once the Partner clicks through the Agreement in the manner provided by Prisync (the “Effective Date”). Prisync and Partner are sometimes referred to as a “Party”, and together as the “Parties”.
In consideration of the mutual promises and agreements herein contained, the Parties agree as follows:
Subject to this Agreement and its terms, Prisync hereby grants to Partner a free, non-exclusive, non-transferable, and revocable license (“License”) to market and distribute the Prisync Solutions to Referrals, and to use the Prisync trademarks, logos, and URLs provided by Prisync and listed in Exhibit A (“Licensed Marks,” as may be amended by Prisync from time to time), and associated materials, language or code for the sole purpose of promoting the Prisync Solutions (collectively, “Marketing Materials”).
The license to use the Licensed Marks granted herein is subject to Prisync’s Trademark Usage Guidelines, incorporated here by reference, as updated from time to time by Prisync at its sole discretion. Prisync may revoke this license at any time by giving Partner a written notice (including via email). A list of certain Prisync trademarks and logos (“Prisync Marks”) is included in the Guidelines.
2. PROGRAM COMMITMENTS.
The Program. To participate in the Program, Partner must complete the online application for participation in the Program found on Prisync’s website (“Site” or https://prisync.com/partners/referral ) and enter this Agreement. Prisync may accept or reject any application at its sole discretion.
2.2 Promotion, Referral Activities. Partner agrees to engage in continued, active promotion of the Prisync Solutions in various marketing channels using the Licensed Marks and Marketing Materials, and to do so in compliance with the terms of this Agreement.
2.3 Prohibited Activities. Partner agrees not to associate Marketing Materials with content that is unlawful in any manner, or which is otherwise harmful, threatening, defamatory, obscene, offensive, harassing, sexually explicit, violent, discriminatory, or otherwise objectionable in Prisync’s sole discretion. Partner agrees not to send unsolicited electronic messages to multiple unrelated recipients (“Spamming”) in promoting the Prisync Solutions, or otherwise to engage in any other form of mass electronic communications prohibited by law in connection with activities contemplated under this Agreement.
2.4 Permissible Use of Prisync Marks.
2.4 (i) Partner expressly agrees to comply with all the terms herein (particularly Section 5.3) in using the Licensed Marks and in creating Marketing Materials.
2.4 (ii) Through the Guidelines and otherwise, Prisync shall provide specifications and other instructions from time to time as to Partner’s permissible use of the Licensed Marks in creating Marketing Materials and promoting the Prisync Solutions. Partner further agrees to comply with all such specifications and instructions.
2.4 (iii) Partner shall ensure that all Licensed Marks appearing on its Marketing Materials are in the form approved by Prisync in the Guidelines or otherwise, shall not modify any Prisync Marks or otherwise substantially modify other Marketing Materials contrary to reasonable instructions provided by Prisync, and shall further comply with reasonable instructions from Prisync as to the form, content, and display of Marketing Materials. Upon termination of this Agreement for any reason whatsoever, or upon written request by Prisync, the license granted herein shall expire and Partner shall immediately cease all its activities under this Agreement.
2.5 Liabilities. Partner shall be solely responsible for its operations in acting under this Agreement, including, without limitation, the legality of Partner’s operations and materials, created and used in connection with this Agreement. Except for a claim alleging that a Prisync Mark violates a third party’s trademark rights, Prisync is not responsible for the development, operation, or content of Partner’s Marketing Materials and Partner agrees to defend, indemnify and hold Prisync harmless against any and all claims, actions, causes of action, damages, or expenses (including attorney fees) relating to the development, operation, content, and maintenance of Partner’s Marketing Materials.
3. REVENUE SHARE AND COMMISSIONS.
“Revenue Share” mean Paid Customers (a) referred by Partner to Prisync and who complete the sign-up procedure in accordance with the procedure described in Section 3.2 below; (b) of whom Prisync has no record in connection with the Prisync Solutions, or who are not, at the time referred to Prisync by Partner, in any contractual relations or ongoing negotiations with Prisync in connection with the Prisync Solutions; (c) who accept the Master Agreement and acquire within ninety (90) days of being referred to Prisync by Partner, at a Referral’s own discretion and without receiving any monetary or other incentives from Partner, at least three (3) months of monthly subscriptions for any of the following Prisync Solutions Plans: Professional, Premium, Platinum and make at least three payments to receive Prisync Services.
3.1 Referral Procedure. Each Referral shall be referred to Prisync by Partner through Prisync’s signup page URL provided with UTM tags by Prisync to Partner. Prisync shall be responsible for the sales process to all Referrals, subject to the Parties’ continued good-faith cooperation in promoting the sales process to Referral.
Responsibilities. Prisync shall collect all fees from Referrals who become Paid Customers for the Prisync Services directly from Referrals (“Subscription Fees”).
3.2 (i) Referral Fees. Upon a Referral becoming a Paid Customer, Prisync shall pay Partner referral fees in arrears at the applicable percentage of the fees listed on Exhibit B (“Referral Fee Percentage”) (excluding any discounts) payable by the Paid Customer pursuant to their initial order under the Master Agreement for the first three months of the associated subscription (“Referral Fees”). For initial orders that have subscription terms in excess of three (3) months, Referral Fees payable with respect to the first three months shall be determined proportionately to the total Subscription Fees payable pursuant to the initial order. For clarity, Partner shall only receive Referral Fees on a Paid Customer’s first three orders and Referral Fees will accrue and be payable for, at most, one year from the date of becoming a Paid Customer. Such Referral Fees shall become payable and be paid to Partner within thirty (30) days of the end of the calendar quarter in which Subscription Fees attributed to such Paid Customers are paid to Prisync. If a Paid Customer terminates the services prior to three months after becoming a Paid Customer, Partner will only receive a pro-rata portion of the Referral Fees for the year in proportion to the Subscription Fees paid by Paid Customer to Prisync. The Referral Fee Percentage for a Paid Customer shall be calculated at the time of payment based on the projected monthly revenue rate (“MRR”) of Paid Customer Subscription Fees. MRR and the corresponding Referral Fee Percentage shall be calculated on a per Paid Customer basis with the Referral Fee Percentage set in accordance with the MRR of the Paid Customer. For each Paid Customer, Referral Fees to Partner shall be capped at the amounts listed on Exhibit B for the applicable Referral Fee Percentages (“Maximum Payment”).
3.2 (ii) Associated charges. Partner shall be responsible for payment of all taxes, duties, governmental charges, and other like charges levied on the Referral Fees, and Partner shall indemnify, defend and hold Prisync harmless from and against any claims arising out or relating to all charges emanating from Prisync’s payment of Referral Fees.
4. TERM AND TERMINATION.
Initial Term. This Agreement shall become effective as of the Effective Date and shall continue for twelve (12) months thereafter (“Initial Term”) unless Prisync rejects Partner’s application to participate in the Program.
4.1 Renewal Term. Following the expiration of the Initial Term, this Agreement will be automatically renewed for additional consecutive terms of twelve (12) months (each, a “Renewal Term”), unless a Party gives written notice of termination to the other Party at least thirty (30) days prior to the end of the Initial Term or any Renewal Term.
4.2 Early Termination.
4.2 (i) Without Cause. Prisync shall have the right to terminate this Agreement at any time for any or no reason by giving ten (10) days’ prior written notice to Partner.
4.2 (ii) For Cause.

5.10 Entire Agreement; Severability.

No other documents or oral or written agreements among the Parties reflect in any way on the agreements laid out in this Agreement. Whenever possible, each provision of this Agreement shall be interpreted in such a manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law, but if any provision of this Agreement shall be prohibited by or invalid under applicable law, such provision shall be ineffective only to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity, without invalidating the remainder of such provision or the remaining provisions of this Agreement.

The Parties agree and acknowledge that this non-disparagement provision is a material term of this Agreement, the absence of which would have resulted in the Prisync refusing to enter into this Agreement.
