GRANT OF LICENSE
We grant to You a limited,
non-exclusive right and license to use the FarApp Services during the Initial
Term and any Renewal Term, subject to payment of the applicable subscription
fee. You are only permitted to use the FarApp Server with the FarApp Client
Software. Access is only permitted for internal business use or personal use,
i.e., you may not sub-license the FarApp Services, and you may not allow third
parties access to your systems which then make use of the FarApp Services.
This License is effective when executed by the subscription
form provided on the FarApp.com website, and remains in force until You cancel your subscription. The Initial Term is the first
month of Service availability after execution of the subscription, and the
Renewal Term is each subsequent month You remain a
subscriber. At the end of the Initial Term and of each Renewal Term, you will
be sent via e-mail an invoice for the previous term’s services, to be paid by
credit card (MasterCard or Visa) within fifteen days. Your License shall
automatically be renewed at the end of each Term, unless You
cancel your subscription or until We terminate this License because of your
failure to comply with any of the terms and conditions in this agreement, or
due to non-payment.
Subscriber has the option to choose to prepay for their FarApp services on an annual basis.
If this option is chosen, the Initial Term as defined in this Agreement shall
be one year from the date of the most recently paid invoice. Any prepayment applies to features
in use at the time of prepayment; if additional features are enabled during the prepayment period,
subscriber agrees to prepay for the additional services through the end of the prepayment period;
i.e., the prorated amount from the time the additional services are in-use, so as to bring their
billing for all services to parity
The Prepayment is non-refundable. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing sentence,
no portion of the Prepayment is refundable in the event either the Subscriber
or The SGC Group terminates this Agreement, the Subscriber discontinues to use
the FarApp Services, the Subscriber materially lessens its use during the annual
term, or the Subscriber indicates that it is not satisfied with the services provided by FarApp Services.
Subscriber has the option to retain The SGC Group for custom professional services.
If this option is selected, Subscriber will be presented with a written quote or estimate of the fees
anticipated for the custom work. Subscriber will make a non-refundable deposit of not less
than Ten Percent (10%) of the total estimated fees and costs for the project
to accept the estimate. The SGC Group may issue either an estimate or a quote for any custom work.
If an estimate is issued, The SGC Group shall quote an hourly rate for the initial estimate; however,
The SGC Group shall retain the right to increase its hourly rate during the term of the project
by giving at least 30 days written notice to Subscriber. If a quote is issued, the fee for the project will be fixed,
additionally the scope of the project shall be restricted to the statement of work in the quote (changes in scope will
require either a revision to the quote, or the generation of an additional quote).
Any project shall have a schedule that will
require a progress payment by Subscriber of at least Fifty Percent of the remaining estimate of fees
and costs when certain itemized goals are reached. Final payment will
be due and payable concurrently with completion of the project.

processing of transactions.

subject to the terms and conditions in this agreement.
