THIS AGREEMENT APPLIES TO THE SOFTWARE THAT CHANNEL PARTNER HAS LICENSED.  THE SOFTWARE IS LICENSED, NOT SOLD.  CHANNEL PARTNER MAY USE ONLY THE SOFTWARE THAT CHANNEL PARTNER HAS LICENSED AND HAS PAID FOR, AND CHANNEL PARTNER MUST USE IT STRICTLY IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT.  CHANNEL PARTNER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ENSURING THAT ALL EMPLOYEES, CONTRACTORS, CLIENTS AND OTHER USERS (“AUTHORIZED USERS”) WITHIN ITS ORGANIZATION OR ENTITY ABIDE BY THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT.

BOOSTLINGO RESERVES THE RIGHT, IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION, TO MODIFY THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT, AT ANY TIME, AND SUCH MODIFIED TERMS AND CONDITIONS SHALL HAVE IMMEDIATE EFFECT ONCE THEY ARE MADE AVAILABLE THROUGH SOFTWARE UPDATES OR OTHERWISE THROUGH CHANNEL PARTNER’S USE OF THE SOFTWARE AT ANY TIME AFTER SUCH MODIFICATIONS ARE MADE.

  1. The Boostlingo Professional Interpreter Network (BLPIN). The BLPIN services constitute a technology platform (“BoostLingo Platform”) that enables clients to use Boostlingo’s mobile applications, landline phones or Boostlingo’s website portal provided as part of the Services (each, an “Application”) to get on-demand interpretation services with third party providers of such services, including independent third party interpretation service providers under agreement with Boostlingo or certain of Boostlingo’s affiliates (“Backstop Providers”).  Channel Partner acknowledges that Boostlingo does not provide interpretation services as an interpretation service provider. Third party Backstop Providers reserve the right to decline interpretation services to a Boostlingo customer contacted through the Boostlingo Platform. The Channel Partner acknowledges that Boostlingo does not contract with, employ, hire, vet, qualify, manage or provide interpreters and is not responsible or liable for the conduct of interpreters that are answering calls or providing interpretation services via the Boostlingo Platform. Boostlingo works with Backstop Providers in the BLPIN to ensure that they meet Boostlingo’s minimum quality standards. BLPIN Crowd Languages are generally supported for on-demand services, but Boostlingo makes no guarantee, representation or warranty that any on-demand OPI or VRI call placed via the BLPIN for a supported language will be answered. Boostlingo reserves the right to change and update the list of supported languages for both OPI and VRI services at any time. In addition, Boostlingo customers are able to route calls to their own interpreter pool (known as “Internal Calls”) and are not required to use a Backstop Provider.

 

 

  1. FEES. Channel Partner must pay the fees specified in the applicable Boostlingo Order Form. Such fees may include ongoing monthly or other periodic fees.  Failure to pay such fees on time will result in shut down of Channel Partner’s and its Clients’ accounts and use of the Software as specified in the Termination section of this Agreement.

 

Usage Fee Invoices and Payments: Payment for all usage fees are due by bank wire transfer, ACH bank transfer or credit card within 15 (fifteen) calendar days of Boostlingo’s usage invoice. Checks are not accepted as a form of payment. All usage fees are invoiced monthly based on the LSC usage activity for each calendar month. If the monthly usage invoice amount is greater than $5,000 (five thousand dollars), the LSC will be required to enroll in Boostlingo ACH autopay. With ACH autopay, Boostlingo will automatically withdraw funds from the LSC’s pre-approved bank account 2 business days after the invoice date.  Interest at the lesser of 1.5% per month or the maximum amount permitted by law will be assessed upon all balances that are not paid by the payment due date.

 

LSC Payment Guarantee: LSC agrees to the payment terms in its Order Form without regard to the payments and terms negotiated between LSC and LSC’s Client(s).

 

Base subscription fee: LSC base subscription fees are paid separately from LSC usage fees. Base subscription fees are paid automatically by credit card on the date outlined in the LSC’s Order Form.

Call Usage Pricing Changes: LSC understands that the nature of this agreement is month to month. While pricing adjustments are not common or expected, Boostlingo has negotiated rates with Backstop vendors that are subject to change. If necessary, Boostlingo reserves the right to adjust OPI and VRI Crowd (BPIN) rates to the LSC with a minimum 30 day notice.  Boostlingo will notify LSC partner with at least a 30 day notice if any call routing rates will be changing and the details of those changes. The rates outlined on the order form are the initial rates being offered as part of this month to month agreement.

Service Shut Down: Boostlingo reserves the right to temporarily or permanently shut down LSC’s access to the Software if LSC has unpaid invoices that are past due.

 

Service Termination and Cancellation: This partnership agreement is month to month. LSC reserves the right to cancel the partnership with Boostlingo at any time with a 30 day notice of cancellation. Boostlingo reserves the right to terminate the partnership with the LSC for any reason with a 30 day notice.
