Subscriber agrees that all use of the Component Control software that it contracts and pays the appropriate license fee for shall be solely pursuant to the License Agreement. For purposes of this SMA, the term “Covered Software” means only the licensed modules specifically set forth on a Software Proposal entered into by Subscriber and Component Control which are subject to the License Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, Covered Software only includes the licensed software package itself and does not include any Internet portals, EDI protocols, APIs or other interfaces required to interoperate the Covered Software with third party software or hardware and SMA Services expressly do not include any analysis, programming and testing of such Internet portals, EDI protocols, APIs or other interfaces. Any support for the foregoing and any other items that are not Covered Software shall be subject to Services Proposals as may be entered between the parties pursuant to the Basic Ordering Agreement between the Parties. All provisions of this Section 1.01 shall survive any termination or expiration of this SMA.

1.02 SMA Services: Provided the then-current SMA Subscription Fee (as defined below) is paid, Subscriber shall receive for the succeeding twelve (12) months (each such twelve (12) month period a “Maintenance Period”): (1) Customer Support Services as described and to the extent outlined in Article 2 below with respect to Covered Software; and (2) Covered Software upgrades and updates as discussed in Article 3 below (collectively “SMA Services”). The following exceptions apply to Component Control’s obligations to provide SMA Services during a Maintenance Period: (a) SMA Services to be provided under this SMA shall not cover the maintenance of any machines, computer hardware or equipment; (b) if Subscriber fails to follow all of Component Control’s installation, operation and maintenance instructions or comply with any of its obligations in this SMA or the License Agreement, then Component Control’s obligation to provide the SMA Services may be suspended until Subscriber complies with all such obligations to the satisfaction of Component Control.

1.03 Subscriber’s Technical Representative: Upon execution of this Agreement and for the benefit of both parties, Subscriber shall use commercially reasonable efforts to designate one (1) of its personnel as its technical representative who will be primarily responsible for directing and overseeing Subscriber’s activities pursuant to this SMA and for transmitting and receiving all material communications regarding this SMA on behalf of Subscriber. Subscriber’s technical representative shall possess the requisite skills and training as required to direct and oversee Subscriber’s activities pursuant to this SMA.

Based on the foregoing, the initial SMA Subscription Fee payable by the Subscriber shall be set forth in the Software Proposal or Maintenance Proposal, as the case may be, provided to Subscriber and may be adjusted as provided herein.

4.02 Payments: The SMA Subscription Fee is due and payable in 12 monthly installments beginning upon the first business day of the first full calendar month during the Maintenance Period and continuing each month thereafter on the same day (or if such day is not a business day, on the subsequent business day).

4.05 Renewals: Maintenance Periods are subject to automatic renewal unless Subscriber terminates this SMA in writing by sending Component Control a written notice of termination at least thirty (30) days before the then current Maintenance Period. Subscriber may extend the Maintenance Period for the Covered Software an unlimited number of times during the term of this SMA, subject to its terms and conditions. In the event Subscriber fails to make continued payment towards the SMA Subscription Fee for a new Maintenance Period prior to the expiration of any Maintenance Period, Subscriber may reinstate SMA Services by paying 150% of the SMA Subscription Fee for the Covered Software that is in arrears as well as the SMA Subscription Fee for the then-current Maintenance Period. Failure to renew the Maintenance Period shall terminate the license to use certain Covered Software under the License Agreement (as more fully set forth therein), until reinstated as provided above. Upon reinstatement of a Maintenance Period, the license to the affected Covered Software (as more fully set forth in the License Agreement) shall resume in full force and effect under its terms.

4.06 Taxes: Subscriber shall be responsible for all sales, use and other taxes and all applicable duties, levies and export fees and similar charges imposed by any federal, state or local government entity on the SMA Services provided and fees paid under this SMA, excluding taxes based solely upon Component Control’s income.

Article 5. Adjustments to SMA Subscription Fee

5.01 Change in Subscription Level: If the Subscriber adds to its current Component Control Software License by purchasing additional users and/or modules, the additional SMA Subscription Fee will be calculated based to the SMA Subscription Percentage multiplied by the then-current list price of the add-on modules and/or users, unless otherwise stated on the applicable Software Proposal. This additional SMA Subscription Fee will then be pro-rated for the months remaining on the current Maintenance Period. Upon subscription renewal, the additional SMA Subscription Fee for all add-on modules and/or users purchased during the previous period will be added to the current SMA Subscription Fee.

5.02 Annual Percentage Increase: Notwithstanding anything contained in the SMA to the contrary, to offset inflation and other increases in the cost of doing business, Component Control has the right to increase the SMA Subscription Fee (for the same Covered Software) by no more than 5% per annual Maintenance Period.

If any claims fall within any of the above exceptions, then, in addition to any SMA Subscription Fee paid by Subscriber hereunder, Subscriber shall also pay Component Control’s costs of investigating and identifying the problem, and Component Control’s expenses to repair or correct the problem, based on Component Control’s then-current charges.

6.03 Access to Covered Software Installation: Subscriber hereby grants Component Control the right to access Customer’s Covered Software installation as required by Component Control to provide SMA Services hereunder, to provide all integration with StockMarket sourcing community and otherwise remotely administer the Covered Software, including, but not limited to, using the Stock Market Agent to collect inventory updates and update the StockMarket, and collecting transaction data for the purpose of aggregating and publishing statistical aggregate non-identifiable transaction data on the StockMarket.
