WP Codes Terms and Conditions

1. Introduction

1.1 These Terms and Conditions, together with our Acceptable Use Policy ("AUP"), which is incorporated by reference, (collectively, the "Agreement"), set forth how WP Codes will provide the Services ("Services") to you. 1.2 The Agreement may be updated in the future and you will be notified in writing of any material changes. Your continued use of the Services will signify your acceptance of the changes and if you do not agree with them you may cancel the Agreement pursuant to the Termination clause below.

2. Definition of Customer and Authorized User

2.1 To create an account with WP Codes to enable you to order various services ("Services") from the WP Codes website ("Orders"), you provided some personal information of the sole owner and only Authorized User of the account ("Customer"). If you directed a person to create the account on your behalf, you represent and warrant that person has the authority to bind you, the Customer, to this Agreement. 2.2 You are responsible for controlling access to your account and for maintaining the security and confidentiality of the account and the information contained within the account.

3. Term and Termination

3.1 The term of this Agreement is one month starting from the date of Customer sign up and payment of Fees ("Initial Term") and will automatically renew for successive one month periods (each a "Renewal Term") provided the advance payment for the Fees for each Renewal Term is made on time and provided that the Agreement has not been terminated in accordance with this Agreement. 3.2 This Agreement may be terminated by either party at any time for any reason with 30 days' prior written notice to the other party. As stated in Fees below, we may terminate the Agreement immediately if the payment for Fees is not on time. 3.3 Upon termination of the Agreement the Services will no longer be provided and the Customer Content may not be available. It is the Customer's responsibility to back up and download the Customer Content prior to termination of the Agreement.

4. Provision and Use of Services

You agree that we may use third parties to provide parts of the Services and you agree to provide assistance, as reasonably required, for us to provide the Services. 4.2 We will make all reasonable efforts to protect and back up your data but there is no guarantee that your data will not be lost or compromised. You are responsible for maintaining a separate back up of your data. 4.3 Sometime in the future we may stop offering some of the options available in our Services offerings as they reach "End of Life". We may attempt to offer replacement options for End of Life Services but not in all cases and ending and replacing or not replacing an End of Life Service is not a breach of this Agreement. We will provide 90 days written notice to you before we discontinue any End of Life Services. 4.4 Some options for Services may be offered in beta form ("Beta") for testing and evaluation. You have the option to use such Beta Services but the Beta Services are provided to you on an as-is basis with the understanding that Beta Services are offered for the purpose of evaluation, testing and correcting faults. You agree that you will not have any intellectual property rights in the Beta Services or any products that result from Beta Services that you use and evaluate and then provide feedback on performance and suggestions for improvements to us.

5. Service Level Terms

5.1 Service Availability WP Codes will provide service availability of 95.00% on a monthly basis calculated by dividing the total number of minutes Service is available in a month by the total number of minutes in a calendar month less Approved Downtime. 5.2 Service Availability Credits ("Credit") Customer will receive a Credit of 5% of Customer's monthly Fee for each hour where we fail to meet 95.00% Service Availability ("Credit Event"). Customer must request a Credit in writing to Support within 30 days of the Credit Event. Credits are forfeited at expiration or termination of the Agreement, may not exceed the Fee paid in the month, cannot be aggregated and will not be paid in cash. 5.3 Excused Downtime "Excused Downtime" means scheduled Service outages or Force Majeure events, downtime caused by (a.) an action of the Customer that violates the Agreement, (b.)

Any coding credits that are not used during the month will roll over and accumulate so they can be used in later months. The coding credits do not expire as long as your account is active and payments for Fees are current. 7.3 If you do not pay on time we may suspend Services and terminate the Agreement. 7.4 You agree to pay any applicable taxes that we are required by law to add to the Fees unless you have provided a valid tax exemption certificate to us.
