This Reseller Agreement (the “Agreement) contains the terms and conditions between RCU Group Inc. (“RCU”) and you or the entity you represent (“you” or “your” or “Reseller”) as entered under Company Name of the Stori Reseller Form. RCU hereby grants to the Reseller and Reseller hereby accepts from RCU the non-exclusive right to resell (“RCU products”) and use (“RCU Services”) as defined below subject to all terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement.
This Agreement takes effect when you click an “I Accept” button (the “Effective Date”).
You represent to us that you are lawfully able to enter into contracts. If you are entering into this Agreement for an entity, such as the company you work for, you represent to us that you have legal authority to bind that entity.
The Term shall commence on the “Effective Date” and will remain in effect for an initial term of 1 year (the “Initial Term”). Thereafter the Agreement shall automatically renew on an annual basis unless terminated by either party.
Either party may terminate this Agreement, without cause upon written notice to the other party with fifteen (15) days notice.
2a. In the event of termination of (“Stori Plan”) by either party all Revenue Share payments for RCU products will be paid within 15 days following the month end. The annual Stori Plan fee will not be refunded.
2b. In the event of termination of (“Stori and Stori App Plan”) by either party, a prorated refund for RCU Services will be processed. For clarity, the refund will be calculated based on the total fees collected minus the fee for Stori Plan, and minus the number of months the RCU Service was available to the Reseller.
For example if the effective date is set on January 1st and the Reseller requests to terminate on May 25th, then the Agreement will be terminated on June 9th and the Reseller will receive a refund for July to December. The refund will be calculated in the following manner:
(Stori and Stori App Plan Fee) - (Stori Plan Fee) - (Stori Service Plan Fee from July to December) = Total refund.
