During the initial term stated in the Agreement (but not any renewal term), and provided that you do not owe the Company any money and are not otherwise in breach of the Agreement, the Company shall repair or replace any hardware or software Product that becomes defective in material or workmanship. The Company shall have no such obligation, however, if it determines that the Product was damaged or became defective, in whole or in part, because of an act of God, or because of conduct by you, your agents, or any third party. During the first year of the initial term stated in the Agreement, the repair or replacement of defective Products shall be accomplished, whenever reasonably and economically feasible, via next day shipping paid for by the Company. Thereafter, the repair or replacement shall be accomplished in the manner that the Company determines to be most appropriate and efficient. With respect to training, the Company’s sole obligation shall be to provide a trainer that it determines to be qualified for the designated number of hours set forth in the Agreement, and the Company does warrant or guarantee that all or any of the trainees shall, after such period of training, be certified or able to use the Products properly or efficiently.

All Products are provided by the Company “as is,” and other than the commitment referenced above (in Section 14) to repair or replace defective hardware and software Products, the Company makes no representations, warranties or guarantees of any kind, whether written, oral, express or implied, or based upon statutory or common law, about any of its Products, including, without limitation, any warranty of merchantability, quality, non-infringement, suitability or fitness for a particular purpose; and the Company expressly disclaims any and all warranties, including those that arise from statute, common law, contract, course of dealing, course of performance and usage of trade. Additionally, the Company shall not be responsible, or liable to you or to any other party, for or because of any: (a) loss of profits, loss of use, or indirect, incidental consequential, economic, punitive or exemplary damage; (b) loss or interception of data or information belonging to you or to your customers; (c) failure of the Products to accurately process card, or other, transactions; and (d) failure of the Products to comply with any applicable governmental or industry standards.
The Company may refer you to a preferred payment processor and may help to have you sign a processing agreement with that processor. The Company is an intended beneficiary of the processing agreement between you and the processor and may use the processor to help collect monies that you owe to the Company. Separate and apart from your obligations under the processing agreement, you agree to process all card transactions with the preferred processor for the duration of the Agreement, including any renewal terms. Should you fail to do so, then you shall owe the Company an amount equal to the total payments that the Company would have received from the processor during: (a) the remaining term of the processing agreement; and (b) any additional period when the Agreement is still in effect. The amount of the total payments that the Company would have received shall be determined by the Company based upon the average of the monthly payments that it received per store during the preceding 12 months (or fewer, if less than 12 months of history exist), multiplied by the number of stores no longer using the processor. Any amount owed under subsection (a) above is due and payable in a lump sum at the time you cease to process with the preferred processor, and any amount owed under subsection (b) above is due and payable each month, in advance, during the additional period when the Agreement is still in effect.
All payments, returned Products and notices from or by you to the Company shall be delivered to the Company’s office located at 1315 West Sam Houston Parkway North, Suite 100, Houston, Texas 77043, or such other location as the Company directs in writing. The Company may collect any or all sums that you may owe by any means available, including, without limitation, (a) from payments or receivables that are due to you from third parties, including banks, financial institutions, and card transaction processors; and (b) by an automated clearinghouse transaction with any bank or financial institution at which you have an account. In this regard, you hereby irrevocably authorize the Company to use such collection mechanisms, and you instruct and authorize all third parties to, upon demand from the Company, pay the Company any demanded sums from any payments or receivables that may be due to you by such third parties, and you expressly release and hold all such third parties harmless for acting in conformity with this authorization. You further grant to the Company a security interest in all Products that are provided to you, as well as in all other accounts, receivables and other assets described above, to secure your obligations under the Agreement, and you agree that the Company, and its affiliates, may take such actions to perfect and protect such interest as they deem necessary and appropriate.
The Agreement, and any authorizations and licenses conferred by it, are executory in nature within the meaning of the US Bankruptcy Code, and your status as a debtor in any bankruptcy proceeding shall not preclude the termination of your authorization and license to use any Products in the event of a breach or default by you under the Agreement.
The Company has, and may exercise at any time, all rights, privileges and remedies that are available to it at law or in equity, including, but not limited to, the rights to obtain injunctive relief, to obtain and collect damages, and to take control over and/or repossess Products that are owned by the Company. Should the Company take any action to enforce their rights under the Agreement, then you shall, upon demand, and without the necessity of a final judgment, reimburse the Company for all expenses that it incurs as a result thereof, including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees and court costs.
You affirm and agree that you have, by agreeing to the Agreement, knowingly waived, released and assigned to the Company your rights against the Company under the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices & Consumer Protection Act found at Section 17.41 et seq. of the Texas Business & Commerce Code, and any similar laws enacted by any other states and governmental entities.
You shall indemnify, and hold harmless the Company, and all persons affiliated with it, from and against any and all claims, demands, actions or the like brought by third parties, in law or in equity, for damages, harm, expenses, losses, costs or other relief arising out of, or connected in any way, with your possession and/or use of the Products provided to you by the Company. Your indemnity obligation shall apply notwithstanding any alleged, or actual, negligence, gross negligence, contract breach or other wrongdoing or misconduct on the part of the Company or any other indemnified person or entity.
The Agreement is entered into and shall be substantially performed in in Harris County, Texas. Thus, without regard to conflict of laws principles, the laws of the State of Texas shall apply to and govern all interpretations of the Agreement, and any claim, demand, dispute or controversy, whether in contract, tort or otherwise (“claim”), that arises out of or relates to the Agreement, or the relationship of the parties to the Agreement. The exclusive venue for resolving all claims is, and shall be, the federal and state courts that have jurisdiction over Harris County, Texas, and both parties hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of such courts, agree to submit themselves to the jurisdiction of such courts, and waive any right to challenge venue. Prior to filing a lawsuit, the party asserting a claim must provide the other party with written notice of the claim, and then engage in face to face negotiations in Harris County, Texas between persons who are fully authorized to resolve the claim on behalf of their respective principals. If such negotiations are unsuccessful, the parties shall attempt to resolve the claim by engaging in mediation, utilizing a mutually agreeable mediator, in Harris County, Texas. In the event the parties are unable to resolve the claim through negotiation and mediation within a reasonable period of time after written notice of the dispute exists (such time not to be less than 60 days), then either party may file a lawsuit in a state or federal district court located in Harris County, Texas. Both parties hereby expressly waive any right to pursue a class action, and any right to a jury trial.
The Company may delay, defer or cancel its performance of its contractual obligations under the Agreement in the event of a war, riot, fire, explosion, flood, accident, sabotage, vendor disruption, inability to obtain materials or equipment, change of law, Act of God or other cause beyond its reasonable control.
Unless otherwise stated in the Agreement, all determinations that are required or permitted to be made by a party shall be made in good faith, but at the sole discretion of the party making the determination, and shall not be binding upon the parties and not subject to further review, including judicial review, except for bad faith.
All notices required or allowed hereunder shall be in writing and shall delivered by commercial courier or by US mail with a delivery receipt.
The Company may assign its rights and obligations under the Agreement when, and as, it chooses. However, you may not assign your rights and obligations under the Agreement without the express written consent of the Company.
If a court of competent jurisdiction holds any provision of any Agreement to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable, the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect. No waiver of any breach of any provision of any Agreement shall constitute a waiver of any prior, concurrent, or subsequent breach of the same or any other provisions hereof. No waiver shall be effective unless made in writing and signed by the waiving party.
