IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, YOU MAY CHOOSE NOT TO PROCEED WITH GETTING APPOINTED AS A VAR.
THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE BINDING ON THE PARTIES AS ON AND WITH EFFECT FROM THE DATE OF YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THE TERMS HEREOF (“EFFECTIVE DATE”)
MobStac and the VAR may hereinafter be collectively referred to as the “Parties” and individually as a “Party”.
As on and with effect from the Effective Date, MobStac hereby appoints the VAR as its value added reseller and permits the VAR to integrate or include MobStac’s products (“Products”, as listed on https://store.beaconstac.com into the VAR’s solutions or offerings and make the same available to its customers (“Customers”). This will entitle the Customers to access MobStac’s cloud platform, viz. ‘Beaconstac’ (“Software”) and avail of services therefrom by way of ‘software as a service’ (“SaaS”).
In order to enable and facilitate the VAR to fulfill its obligations hereunder, MobStac shall: (i) provide the VAR’s designated personnel with sales training information on the Products, Software, SaaS and the marketing collateral thereto; (ii) provide the VAR with MobStac’s software development kit (“SDK”) to enable the VAR to integrate or include the Products and Services with its solutions or offerings (if required); (iii) provide the VAR with the requisite administrator rights to enable the VAR to control the Customer accounts; (iv) offer discounts, at MobStac’s discretion, to the VAR to, in turn, offer the discount to the Customers on a promotional basis (“Promotion”); (v) assist the VAR in joint marketing and Promotion efforts; and (vi) provide the Customers access to the latest features of the SaaS, whether pre-release or otherwise.
Further, if the VAR is desirous of white-labelling the Products and/or Software, MobStac agrees to: (i) remove any MobStac Marks from the Products and/or Software; (ii) provide a generic application to manage the Products (i.e., devoid of any MobStac Marks); and (iii) provide marketing collateral without MobStac Marks to enable the VAR to market the Products and Software along with its solutions or offerings.
Pursuant to the VAR providing the Products and Software along with its solutions or offerings to the Customers, MobStac shall: (i) manage all aspects of the SaaS relationship with the Customers in accordance with and subject to its terms and conditions, as set out in https://store.beaconstac.com/; and (ii) provide maintenance and support to the VAR, to the extent it pertains to the Products and SaaS to the VAR, to enable it to, in turn, provide the same to the Customers.
The VAR may place orders for the Products in writing (“Order”) through MobStac’s website, viz. https://store.beaconstac.com/ or via their dashboard. Each Order will specify: (i) the quantity and type of Products and SaaS (white-labelled or otherwise); and (ii) the requested shipment date for the Products. Each Order, once placed, shall be irrevocable and non-cancellable. However, the Order will be binding on MobStac only once the Order is accepted by MobStac. Thereafter, the terms thereof may not be varied, unless it is otherwise mutually agreed by the Parties. Any Order that MobStac accepts will be subject solely to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and any additional or inconsistent terms contained in the Order will not be binding on MobStac, unless specifically agreed in writing by MobStac. MobStac may, at its option, refuse any Order placed by the VAR, cancel any accepted Order, delay shipment of the Products and/or access by the Customers to the SaaS, if the VAR is delinquent in any payments to MobStac or otherwise in breach of this Agreement.
MobStac shall process an Order only once it receives payment or in the event it has agreed to a deferred payment schedule, it shall process the Order upon its acceptance and thereafter, ship the Products to the VAR. The Products shall be shipped FCA (Incoterms 2010) MobStac’s or its affiliate’s facility (“Point of Origin”). Risk of loss will pass to the VAR upon delivery to the carrier at the Point of Origin and title to the Products will pass to the VAR once the same is paid for in full. For shipments outside the United States, the VAR shall be responsible for clearing the Product shipment for import and shall pay applicable duties, taxes and other charges, if any, upon import. The VAR acknowledges and agrees that the scheduled shipment dates mentioned in the invoice, if any, are purely indicative, and MobStac shall not liable for any loss, damage or penalty on account of any delay.
If the Products supplied by MobStac do not function according to its specifications and any documentation provided therewith, then the VAR may contact MobStac via the contact information provided herein within 15 (fifteen) days of delivery of the concerned Product, failing which, the Products delivered shall be deemed accepted by the VAR. Accordingly, MobStac may, at its option, arrange for either: (i) replacement of the Products within a commercially reasonable time period; or (ii) a refund of the price paid for the Products, less shipping costs.
