By agreeing to these terms, each user represents that such individual is duly authorized to execute this Agreement on behalf of the applicable party and, on behalf of such party, acknowledges and agrees that such party is bound by this Agreement.
1.1 The Services. In consideration for the fees as set forth in the applicable SOW (as defined herein) (“Fees”), Vendor will provide Customer with the products, services, and Work Product (as defined herein) (if any) (the “Services”) as specified in a written statement of work, order form, or similar purchasing document executed by both Parties which references and is governed by this Agreement (“SOW”). Fees shall not include, and Customer shall have no obligation to pay or reimburse, any costs or expenses (“Expenses”) that (i) are incurred other than in the course of provision of the Services to Customer, (ii) are not expressly pre-approved by Customer in writing (whether in a SOW or a separate writing), (iii) exceed any cap or limit on costs and/or expenses set forth in a SOW, or (iv) are not supported by substantiating documentation (which must be provided to Customer on request). If a given SOW automatically renews, the Fees associated with such renewal term shall not be increased by more than3% of the equivalent period for the prior term.
1.2 Taxes. All Fees and Expenses referred to in this Agreement are exclusive of VAT and the Customer shall be responsible for paying to Vendor all applicable VAT and any other similar taxes imposed on all Fees and Expenses for services or supplies made by the Vendor under this Agreement. Customer shall be responsible for the payment of any taxes imposed by any governmental taxing authority on the amounts the Customer is liable to pay to the Vendor under this Agreement, including, but not limited to, withholding taxes of whatever nature(“Withholding Taxes”).The Customer agrees promptly to pay any Withholding Taxes and obtain and deliver to the Vendor proof of payment of such Withholding Taxes together with official evidence thereof issued by the governmental authority concerned, sufficient to enable the Vendor to support a claim for a tax credit in respect of any sum so withheld. If the Vendor is unable to obtain such tax credit due to the Customer’s failure to comply with the above provision, then the Customer agrees to pay to the Vendor a sum equal to the amount of the tax credit not able to be claimed by the Vendor.
1.3 Invoices. Vendor shall invoice the Customer for all Fees and Expenses in accordance with the applicable SOW. Vendor may invoice for all sums payable under this Agreement as they become due.

The Customer must provide the Vendor all necessary detail and reasons for disputing the invoice and in the case of an invoice for services this must include all documentary evidence and proof that the services were either not delivered or of such poor quality that there was no benefit to the Customer. Notification of a disputed invoice should be sent in writing (e-mail) to the firstname.lastname@example.org.
1.4 Payment. Each invoice shall be paid by the Customer within 30 days of the date of the invoice. All payments to be made by the Customer under this Agreement shall be made without any deduction or set-off. The Vendor may charge interest on all sums outstanding beyond the date on which they are due for payment under this Agreement from the date payment was due until the date of payment (and before as well as after judgement).

(B)The Data Protection Laws mandate that the Processing of Customer Personal Data that Jalubro carriesout on your behalf is subject to a contract containing certain specific terms (these are set out in Article 28(3) of the GDPR). We have prepared this Data Processing Agreement (here) to ensure that these mandated terms are in place.
(C)Furthermore, following the UK ceasing to be a member state of the European Union (“Brexit”), and the subsequent expiry of post-Brexit transitional arrangements agreed between the UK and the EU, the EU GDPR has been replaced in the UK by the UK GDPR. Accordingly, the Parties need to reflect the application of the UK GDPR as well as, potentially, the continued application of the EU GDPR (as and where applicable).
