 (a) Any training service project we undertake shall be described in statements of work (each a “Statement of Work”) setting forth the agreed upon training to be provided (“Training Services”), pricing and payment terms. Both parties shall execute each Statement of Work and each is incorporated herein by this reference. The terms of a Statement of Work will control over any conflicting terms in this Agreement.

 (b) We will provide the Training Services according to the applicable Statement of Work. You acknowledge that your cooperation is essential to the timely performance of our Training Services. You will, to the extent required in connection with the performance of our services: (i) provide us with any necessary access to your personnel, facilities or data; (ii) cause the appropriate personnel to cooperate with us as required for us to provide the Training Services, including responding promptly to questions or issues, and (iii) make any payments when due. Your delay or failure to do so shall excuse any resulting failure by us to meet any training schedules set forth in the Statements of Work. If you fail to do any of the foregoing, both parties will cooperate in good faith to develop a revised written training schedule and written Statement of Work or change order signed by both parties with new pricing.

 (c) If our personnel, agents or representatives are required to travel to a location other than one of our facilities, you will pay or reimburse us upon invoice for all reasonable travel expenses including airfare, ground transportation, lodging and meals for personnel required to travel. We will adhere to our corporate travel policies and provide a copy, unless other agreements are made prior to undertaking a project. Training Services to be provided on-site at your facilities will be scheduled in advance by agreement of each party. We will use reasonable efforts to accommodate any requested change in the scheduled dates for Training Services, subject to the availability of appropriate personnel. You will also reimburse us upon invoice for our out-of-pocket expenses in connection with the performance of Training Services as set forth in the applicable Statement of Work. At your request, we will provide receipts or other reasonably satisfactory evidence of such expenses.

 (d) You may request changes to the scope of Training Services set forth in an applicable Statement of Work by providing us with such request in writing at least 10 days prior to the date such Training Services are to begin. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to accommodate requested scope changes, subject to this Section. Any scope changes shall be subject to mutual agreement and shall be set forth in a new Statement of Work or a written change order setting forth the changes to the Training Services and any modifications to the training dates, payment terms and agreed pricing.

 (e) Unless set forth elsewhere in this Agreement, all payments are due on net 30-day terms from invoice date. Payment terms in this Agreement are subject to credit approval in our reasonable discretion and may be changed based on your financial position or payment history. You agree to pay a finance charge of 1.5% per month on all past due amounts. All prices and payments in this Agreement are exclusive of all taxes, and you agree to pay all national, state and local sales, use, value-added and other taxes, customs duties and similar tariffs and fees based on services provided hereunder, other than taxes imposed on our net income.

 (f) Unless otherwise stated in the Statement of Work, you will pay us at the then-current hourly rate for our employee or subcontractor who is performing the Training Services. Rates are subject to change. We will invoice you monthly at the end of each month at the billing rates set forth in the Statements of Work for work performed on each Statement of Work during the previous month. Invoices will include a summary of all time expended for each personnel classification providing Training Services during the month.

LIMITED WARRANTY. Provided that you have paid license fees for your use of the Software, SumTotal warrants that, for 90 days after date of the initial delivery of the Software to you, the disks or CD-ROM (if the Software was delivered on tangible media) will be free from defects in materials and workmanship. Your exclusive remedy for breach of warranty is to return the complete product, with proof of purchase, to SumTotal (if purchased direct) or to your reseller and it will be replaced for free. You are responsible for the selection and use of the Software, and, unless you have separately purchased installation support from SumTotal, for the installation and configuration of the Software.

DISCLAIMER. IF YOU ACQUIRED THE SOFTWARE FOR TRIAL USE, THE SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED FREE OF CHARGE FOR EVALUATION PURPOSES ONLY AND IS PROVIDED "AS-IS." THE TRAINING SERVICES AND ALL DOCUMENTATION AND TRAINING MATERIALS ARE PROVIDED “AS IS.” EXCEPT FOR THE LIMITED WARRANTY DESCRIBED IN THE PREVIOUS PARAGRAPH, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, SUMTOTAL AND ITS SUPPLIERS EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL OTHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, AS WELL AS ANY WARRANTIES THAT THE OPERATION OF THE PRODUCTS WILL BE INTERRUPTION OR ERROR FREE. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH HEREIN, THE SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED “AS-IS.” ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS SHALL TERMINATE 90 DAYS FROM DATE OF DELIVERY, WHETHER BY PHYSICAL SHIPMENT OR BY ELECTRONIC DOWNLOAD, OF THE SOFTWARE TO THE ORIGINAL LICENSEE. Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty or condition lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you. THIS LIMITED WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS, AND YOU MAY HAVE OTHER RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM JURISDICTION TO JURISDICTION. IMPORTANT NOTE: Nothing in this agreement is intended or shall be construed as excluding or modifying any statutory rights, warranties or conditions which are applicable to this agreement or the Software, and which by virtue of any national or state Fair Trading, Trade Practices or other consumer legislation may not be modified or excluded. If permitted by such legislation, however, SumTotal’s liability for any breach of any such warranty or condition shall be and is hereby limited to either: (i) the supply of such Software again or; (ii) the correction of any defect in such Software as SumTotal at its sole discretion may determine to be necessary to correct the defect.


LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY. IN NO EVENT WILL SUMTOTAL OR ITS SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES OR LOST PROFITS ARISING FROM, CONNECTED WITH, OR RELATED TO YOUR USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SOFTWARE OR DOCUMENTATION, THE BREACH OF ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OR CONDITION, OR OTHERWISE IN CONNECTION WITH THE SOFTWARE, THE DOCUMENTATION, THE TRAINING SERVICES AND/OR THIS AGREEMENT EVEN IF SUMTOTAL HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. Some jurisdictions do not allow limitation or exclusion of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you to the extent that liability is by law incapable of exclusion or restriction. IN NO EVENT SHALL SUMTOTAL’S OR ITS SUPPLIERS' TOTAL AGGREGATE CUMULATIVE LIABILITY FOR ANY DAMAGES, DIRECT OR INDIRECT, IN CONNECTION WITH THE SOFTWARE, THE DOCUMENTATION, AND/OR THIS LICENSE EXCEED THE LICENSE FEES PAID FOR YOUR RIGHT TO USE THIS COPY OF THE SOFTWARE WHETHER SUCH LIABILITY ARISES FROM ANY CLAIM BASED UPON CONTRACT, WARRANTY, TORT OR OTHERWISE. Provisions of this agreement such as the warranty limitations, exclusive remedies and limitations of liability are unrelated, independent allocations of risks between you and SumTotal. Unenforceability of any such allocations shall not affect the enforceability of other such allocations. If any part of this agreement is held to be unenforceable, it shall not affect any other part. If any part of this agreement is held to be unenforceable as written, it shall be enforced to the maximum extent allowed by applicable law. SumTotal’s pricing reflects the allocations of risk contained in this agreement.

Termination. This agreement and your right to use the Software terminate automatically if you violate any part of this agreement. If you acquired the Software for trial use, SumTotal may terminate this agreement immediately at any time. Upon any termination or expiration of this agreement or the applicable Term, you will either (i) purchase an appropriate license to the Software or (ii) discontinue all use of the Software, return all media to us, and provide us with a certification signed by a corporate officer that all copies of the Software, including backup copies, whether partial or complete, have been returned to us and/or deleted from the storage media. You may terminate any Statement of Work for any reason upon 30 days prior written notice to us. The following Sections shall survive the termination or expiration of this agreement: Copyright, Disclaimer, Exclusive Remedy, Limitations of Liability, Termination, and General.
