NuoDB PROFESSIONAL SERVICES ADDENDUM
PROFESSIONAL SERVICES ADDENDUM
This Professional Services Addendum (the “Addendum”) shall apply to any Professional Services procured by the Licensee pursuant to a Statement of Work. Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined in this Addendum shall have the meanings assigned to them in the Agreement.
For good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the Parties agree as follows:
1. PROFESSIONAL SERVICES
NuoDB shall provide consulting, integration, implementation, design, development, assessments, training, reviews and other work under the terms and conditions of this Agreement (the “Services”), as specified in one or more supplemental Statements of Work that NuoDB and Licensee may enter into from time to time (each, A “Statement of Work” or an “SOW”).
2. FEES AND PAYMENT
In consideration of the Services rendered under this Agreement, Licensee shall pay NuoDB as set forth in each SOW. Except as otherwise provided, all fees are quoted in United States dollars.
2.2 Time and Materials
Unless otherwise specified in an SOW, Licensee shall pay fees for actual time spent and materials purchased for all Services performed by NuoDB in accordance with the NuoDB’s then-current standard rates and procedures.
2.3 Invoicing and Payment
Unless otherwise set forth in an SOW, NuoDB will invoice Licensee regularly according to its standard practices for professional or client services, and all fees and charges are due net 30 days from the invoice date. Unless otherwise stated in an SOW, all payments made under this Agreement shall be in United States dollars.
If Licensee pays NuoDB for any Services under an executed SOW before NuoDB performs such Services, then such prepayments expire six months after the execution date of the applicable SOW. Licensee may not apply the pre-payments towards another SOW, and all such pre-payments are non-refundable.
2.5 Overdue Payments
Any payment not received from Licensee by the due date may accrue (except with respect to charges then under reasonable and good faith dispute), at NuoDB’s discretion, late charges at the rate of 1.5% of the outstanding balance per month, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, from the date such payment was due until the date paid.
Unless otherwise stated in an SOW, NuoDB’s fees do not include any local, state, federal or foreign taxes, levies or duties of any nature ("Taxes"). Licensee is responsible for paying all Taxes, excluding only taxes based on NuoDB’s income. If NuoDB has the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which Licensee is responsible under this section, the appropriate amount shall be invoiced to and paid by Licensee to NuoDB unless Licensee provides NuoDB with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority.
3. ACCEPTANCE AND MODIFICATION OF SERVICES
Upon delivery of the Services, or a portion thereof, NuoDB will deliver an Acceptance Form to Licensee. Acceptance or rejection must be made by the Licensee within 5 business days of receipt, unless an alternative time frame is mutually agreed upon. If Services are rejected, the Licensee must document in reasonable detail on the Acceptance Form the reason for rejection. If the Acceptance Form is not signed within the time period stated above, the Services specified in the Acceptance Form shall be deemed satisfactory and accepted by the Licensee and Licensee shall be obligated to make payment as provided in this Agreement and the applicable Statement of Work. Notwithstanding the foregoing, signature of the time sheet of a NuoDB consultant(s) shall be deemed acceptance of work performed by Consultant(s) in connection with such time sheet.
If Licensee wishes to change the services covered by a Statement of Work or wishes to obtain additional services not listed in a Statement of Work (the “Additional Services”), Licensee, through its authorized representative, shall so advise NuoDB, and NuoDB may perform the Additional Services at its discretion. Upon NuoDB’s receipt of Licensee’s request for the Additional Services, the Licensee and NuoDB shall use reasonable, good faith efforts to mutually agree upon the scope of the Additional Services by completing a change order form. If NuoDB performs the Additional Services prior to completion of such change order form, Licensee agrees that NuoDB may expend whatever time NuoDB deems reasonable and necessary to perform the Additional Services and that the charges for such services and other terms and conditions of performance shall be governed by this Agreement.
4. OWNERSHIP, INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS AND LICENSE

Licensee will also perform the obligations specified as “Licensee Obligations” (or other similar heading) in any Statement of Work.

7.4 Effect of Termination for Breach
If Licensee materially breaches Section 4 above, then, in addition to any other available remedies under this Agreement, NuoDB may terminate Licensee’s license to use the Work Product upon written notice to Licensee, in which case Section 4.4 above shall become void and of no further force or effect. In such an event, promptly upon NuoDB’s request Licensee shall, at NuoDB’s option, either return to NuoDB, or destroy and certify in writing to NuoDB that it has destroyed, the original and all copies, in whole or in part, in any form, of the Work Product and any other Confidential Information disclosed by NuoDB hereunder.
