Customer shall use the Services exclusively for authorized and legal purposes, consistent with all applicable laws, regulations and the rights of others.
3.6 Unauthorized Use. Customer further agrees to take all reasonable steps to ensure that unauthorized persons will not have access to any of the Licensed Work and that all authorized persons having access will refrain from any disclosure, duplication or reproduction of the Licensed Work except to the extent permitted under this Agreement.
4.1 Fees. The Customer must pay Jumio the Fees in the manner and amounts set forth in this Agreement. All payments will be nonrefundable, non-cancellable and irrevocable except as otherwise provided in this Agreement. Unless set forth in a Sales Order or as otherwise provided below with respect to Optional Services, the Fees are due and payable in United States dollars, in full, on the Effective Date or Renewal Date (as appropriate). Invoices to Customer must be sent to the email address indicated on the Sales Order. Payment obligations are unconditional and not dependent on a “go live” date or the use of the Products in a “live environment”.
4.2 Overages. Jumio will invoice and Customer must pay for Overages monthly in arrears, net thirty (30) days of Jumio’s invoice date. Fees for Overages will be calculated as the quantity of Overages multiplied by 130% of the individual Transaction rate set out in the Sales Order, plus a commensurate increase in the Maintenance and Support Charge. Jumio may, at its sole discretion, permit Customer to consume transactions after the Term is expired provided that Transactions consumed after the Term will be invoiced as Overages, and notwithstanding any expiration of the Agreement, such Transactions will be subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

4.5 Taxes. The amounts due to Jumio under this Agreement do not include bank fees, transfer fees, taxes, duties or similar fees. If Jumio does not receive full payment of the Fees or is required to pay (a) sales, use, property, value-added, withholding or other taxes, (b) any customs or other duties, or (c) any import, warehouse or other fees, associated with the importation or delivery based on the licenses granted or services performed under this Agreement or on Customer’s use of the Licensed Work or the Services, then such taxes, duties or fees will be billed to and paid by Customer. If Customer is permitted to declare any such taxes, Customer must declare and pay such taxes and Jumio will not be required to invoice Customer. This Section 4.5 does not apply to and Customer shall not be required to pay taxes based on Jumio’s gross receipts, income or payroll. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, Customer shall be entitled to deduct and withhold from the Fees under this Agreement such amounts as Customer is required to deduct and withhold with respect to the making of such payment under applicable tax laws. To the extent that amounts are so withheld and paid over to the appropriate tax authority by Customer, Customer shall immediately provide Jumio with proof of such withholding tax payment, and, accordingly, such withheld amounts shall be treated for all purposes of this
5.1 Account Suspension. If the payment of Customer’s Fees is overdue by more than five (5) days, Jumio may immediately suspend or delay the provision of Services to Customer and remove net 30 payment terms (or any other credit terms or installment terms previously extended), and all amounts due will become due immediately. Suspension or delay of Services does not in any way negate or lessen Customer’s obligation to pay any Fees or expenses due under this Agreement.
5.2 Default Interest and Collection Costs. All overdue payments will accrue interest at the lesser of (a) five percent (5%) per month, or (b) the maximum rate permitted by applicable law; in each case, from the date due until fully paid.
