Late payments shall be subject to a service charge equal to one and a half percent (1.5%) per month of the amount due or the maximum amount allowed by law, whichever is less and, without limiting any other remedy hereunder, may result in ReMatter suspending the provision of the ReMatter Platform, pursuant to Section 10.4(c), until such payments including any applicable service charge are received by ReMatter.

NOTWITHSTANDING ANY TERMS TO THE CONTRARY IN THIS AGREEMENT, REMATTER DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, FOR THE REMATTER PLATFORM, AND ANY MATERIALS AND SERVICES PROVIDED, INCLUDING PERIPHERALS, DURING OR FOR THE TRIAL PERIOD. DURING THE TRIAL PERIOD, THE REMATTER PLATFORM AND RELATED MATERIALS AND SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" BASIS AT CUSTOMER'S OWN RISK AND CUSTOMER HEREBY RELEASES REMATTER FROM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY ASSOCIATED WITH THE TRIAL PERIOD. Nothing in this Section obligates ReMatter to provide Customer with a Trial Period or any support during a Trial Period, and ReMatter reserves the right to suspend or terminate any Trial Period, or otherwise discontinue Customer's access to the ReMatter Platform during a Trial Period, at any time without prior notice. Customer will not attempt to defeat or circumvent any duration mechanism for a Trial Period.

This Agreement commences on the Effective Date and will last for a duration set forth in the Customer's Subscription Service Form, unless otherwise terminated as set forth in Section 10.2 (the " Term").

For clarity, Customer shall be responsible for any expenses incurred by ReMatter in providing the above download and export and related assistance. Customer agrees that ReMatter shall not be liable to Customer, any Authorized User, or any other third party for any cessation of access to the ReMatter Platform following such expiration or termination, including for any damages arising out of any party's reliance on the continued availability of the ReMatter Platform.
10.4** Suspension of Access to ReMatter Platform**
In addition to its other rights under this Agreement, ReMatter may, upon written notice, suspend or terminate access to the ReMatter Platform by Customer or any Authorized User in order to: (a) prevent damage to or degradation of the same; (b) comply with any applicable law, court order, or other governmental request or order; or (c) respond to any non-payment of payments due by Customer hereunder. ReMatter will promptly restore access by Customer as soon as the event giving rise to suspension has been resolved to the reasonable satisfaction of ReMatter.

THE FOLLOWING SECTIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT SHALL SURVIVE THE TERMINATION OR EXPIRY OF THIS AGREEMENT: 2.2(iii)(B) (LIMITATIONS AND RESTRICTIONS), 2.3 (PERIPHERALS), 7.1 (REMATTER OWNERSHIP), 7.5 (FEEDBACK), 8 (FEES), 9.2 (TRIAL PERIOD DISCLAIMER), 10.3 (EFFECTS OF TERMINATION), 10.5 (SURVIVAL), 11 (CONFIDENTIALITY), 12 (WARRANTIES; DISCLAIMER), 13 (LIMITATION OF LIABILITY), 14 (FORCE MAJEURE), 15 (NO ASSIGNMENT), 16 (DISPUTE RESOLUTION), 17 (GENERAL), AND 18 (NOTICES).
11.1" Confidential Information" means information disclosed by a party (" Disclosing Party") to the other party (" Receiving Party"), either directly or indirectly, in writing, orally or by inspection of tangible objects (including without limitation documents, prototypes, and equipment), which is designated as "Confidential," "Proprietary" or some similar designation or which, based on the context and circumstances under which the information is disclosed should be reasonably understood to be confidential or proprietary to the Disclosing Party. If disclosed in writing, Confidential Information shall be identified and marked as "Confidential" or a similar designation. Confidential Information does not include any information that: (i) was publicly available at the time of disclosure to the Receiving Party; (ii) was published or otherwise became publicly available after disclosure to the Receiving Party, through no fault of its own; (iii) was in the possession of the Receiving Party at the time of disclosure to it from a third party who had a lawful right to such information and disclosed such information without a breach of duty to the Disclosing Party; or (iv) was independently developed by the Receiving Party without reference to Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party.
11.2 Each Receiving Party agrees to use the same care to protect the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party as it employs to avoid disclosure, publication, or dissemination of its own confidential information, but in no event less than reasonable care. With respect to ReMatter, compliance with Section 5 (Privacy and Security) meets such standard. Each Receiving Party shall only use the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information as required by this Agreement. Neither Receiving Party shall disclose any of Disclosing Party's Confidential Information to third parties or to the employees and contractors of the Receiving Party unless such employees and contractors are required to have the information in order to perform under this Agreement. Receiving Party shall ensure that its employees and contractors who have access to Confidential Information of the other party have signed a non-use and non-disclosure agreement in content like the provisions hereof, prior to any disclosure of Confidential Information to such employees or contractors. The Receiving Party shall promptly notify the Disclosing Party upon learning of any unauthorized disclosure or use, or loss of the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information. If the Receiving Party is served with a court order compelling disclosure of any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party, it will, to the extent allowed under law, immediately notify the Disclosing Party so the Disclosing Party has a reasonable opportunity to oppose disclosure, and reasonably cooperate with the Disclosing Party in the event the Disclosing Party opposes disclosure. Any disclosure of Customer's Confidential Information resulting from a security breach at ReMatter shall not be a breach of this Section 11, unless such breach is the direct result of ReMatter's breach of Section 5 (Privacy and Security). This Section does not transfer ownership of Confidential Information or grant any license thereto. The Receiving Party shall return or destroy Disclosing Party's Confidential Information upon request, provided that ReMatter will be excused from its obligations under this Agreement to the extent its performance requires any Confidential Information returned or destroyed upon Customer's request.
12.** LIMITED WARRANTIES; DISCLAIMER**
12.1** Limited Warranties**
Each party represents and warrants that: (a) it has full corporate power and authority to enter into the Agreement and to carry out the transactions contemplated under the Agreement, including granting the respective licenses hereunder; and (b) it will comply with all laws, rules and regulations applicable to it in exercising its rights and performing its obligations under this Agreement. The United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to this Agreement, including any Subscription Service Form.

IN NO EVENT SHALL REMATTER'S AGGREGATE LIABILITY, WHETHER IN CONTRACT OR IN TORT (INCLUDING BREACH OF WARRANTY, NEGLIGENCE AND STRICT LIABILITY IN TORT) WILL BE LIMITED TO THE FEES PAID BY CUSTOMER TO REMATTER FOR USE AND ACCESS TO THE REMATTER PLATFORM DURING THE THREE (3) MONTHS IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO SUCH CLAIM. THE LIMITATIONS, EXCLUSIONS AND DISCLAIMERS IN THIS AGREEMENT SHALL SURVIVE ANY FUNDAMENTAL BREACH OR BREACHES OR THE FAILURE OF THE ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF THIS AGREEMENT OR OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY CONTAINED HEREIN.
14.** FORCE MAJEURE**
In no event shall a party be liable to the other party (other than payment obligations), for any delay or failure to perform in breach of any of the terms of this Agreement to the extent that such breach results from an event outside the control of the breaching party (a " Force Majeure Event"), including acts of God, acts of a public enemy, acts of terrorism, government acts, fires, floods, epidemics, pandemics, quarantine restrictions, freight embargoes, and unusually severe weather conditions, provided that, in every case, the delay or failure to perform is without the fault or negligence of the delayed or failing party, and that such delayed or failing party makes reasonable efforts to cure the delay or failure as soon as possible after the occurrence of the Force Majeure Event. If a party is unable to perform its obligations under this Agreement for more than sixty (60) days due to a Force Majeure Event, either party shall have the right to terminate the Agreement without further liability to the other party.
15.** NO ASSIGNMENT**
Neither party may assign or transfer this Agreement without the other party's prior written consent, provided that ReMatter may assign or transfer this Agreement so long as such assignment or transfer is to an affiliate of ReMatter, pursuant to a merger or acquisition of ReMatter, or to a purchaser of all or substantially all of ReMatter's assets related to this Agreement. This Agreement shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon each party and their respective successors and permitted assigns and transfers.
16.** DISPUTE RESOLUTION**
16.1 Any dispute, claim or controversy between the Parties arising out of or relating to this Agreement, whether in contract, tort or otherwise, and the Parties' rights, remedies and obligations under this Agreement, are to be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of the State of California, without giving effect to the State of California's conflict of laws rules.

16.2 In the event of a dispute between ReMatter and Customer with respect to any aspect of this Agreement: (a) the parties shall use reasonable efforts to resolve the matter in dispute; (b) if resolution of such dispute is not obtained within five (5) business days, such dispute shall be referred to Wyatt Pontius, CEO of ReMatter, and to the Customer's Contact as specified in the Customer's Subscription Service Form, for resolution; and (c) if such persons do not resolve such dispute within ten (10) business days, such dispute shall be referred to binding arbitration via JAMS through a single arbitrator appointed by mutual consent, acting reasonably, where (i) the place of arbitration will be San Francisco, California; (ii) the language of the arbitration shall be English; (iii) if permitted by the applicable rules, limited discovery will be permitted in connection with the arbitration upon agreement of the parties or upon a showing of substantial need by the party seeking discovery; (iv) the arbitrator's decision shall follow the plain and natural meaning of the relevant documents and shall be final and binding; (v) the arbitrator will have no power to award damages inconsistent with the Agreement, and the parties expressly waive their right to obtain such damages in arbitration or in any other forum; and (vi) all aspects of the arbitration will be confidential, such that neither the parties nor the arbitrator may disclose the existence, content, or results of the arbitration, except as necessary to comply with legal or regulatory requirements. Judgment upon any award in such arbitration may be entered and enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction.
16.3 Notwithstanding the determination by the parties to use the dispute resolution process in Section 16.2 to resolve disputes arising out of or in connection with this Agreement, nothing herein shall preclude either party from seeking and obtaining from a court of competent jurisdiction appropriate equitable relief, including a temporary restraining order or other injunctive relief, to prevent a breach of this Agreement relating to Intellectual Property Rights or Confidential Information. In such cases, the parties irrevocably consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the State of California, Santa Clara County for the purposes of adjudicating any matter arising from or in connection with this Agreement. Except to the extent precluded by applicable law: (a) any parties to an action brought hereunder shall be individually named, and Customer hereby waives any right it may have to litigate any such matter on a class or consolidated basis, or on bases involving disputes brought on a purported representative capacity; and (b) for clarity, the parties hereby irrevocably waive any right they may have to trial by jury.
No joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between Customer and ReMatter as a result of this Agreement or use or provision of ReMatter Platform or other services. If any part of this Agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law, then such provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of the Agreement shall continue in effect. No modification or amendment of any provision of this Agreement shall be effective unless agreed by both parties in writing, and no waiver of any provision of this Agreement shall be effective unless in writing and signed by the waiving party. No failure or delay by either party in exercising any right, power, or remedy under this Agreement, except as specifically provided herein, shall operate as a waiver of any such right, power or remedy. This Agreement, including the schedules hereto and Subscription Service Forms (in each case as executed) constitute the entire agreement between Customer and ReMatter with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede all oral or written prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals between the parties with respect to same. Unless a Schedule or Subscription Service Form explicitly states that a particular term of this agreement is superseded by a term in the particular Schedule or Subscription Service Form, then this Agreement shall control in the case of a conflict between the Agreement and the terms of the Schedule or Subscription Service Form. Any terms and conditions, including as submitted by Customer on its own standard form documentation, shall not replace, alter, or amend the terms of this Agreement, as no amendment can be made to this Agreement unless signed by authorized representatives of both parties. References to this Agreement herein shall mean this Agreement, all Schedules hereto and any applicable Subscription Service Forms entered into hereunder. The headings contained in this Agreement are for purposes of convenience only and shall not affect the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original and all of which together shall constitute one and the same instrument.

ReMatter Platform: The ReMatter Platform is a cloud-based platform which provides functionalities that companies – particularly those operating in the industrial recycling space – may find useful. These features include but are not limited to the ability to store and manage information about customers and suppliers; the ability to create and dispatch service jobs; and the ability to track and manage bin/asset locations. Additional features, described on the ReMatter website at https://rematter.com, may also be included with future updates to the Platform in accordance with the rest of this Agreement.
Mobile App: The ReMatter Driver app is a mobile app, available on the Apple App Store (iOS) and the Google Play Store (Android), which enables drivers to receive dispatch instructions from the ReMatter Platform. Each driver has a job queue and will receive job cards, which instruct the driver on how to complete jobs such as the start and end locations, job type, and associated bins/assets. Drivers can use the ReMatter Driver app to mark updates on their jobs, informing the ReMatter Platform user (the dispatcher) on their progress.
