RCA Products are accessed through Licensor’s password protected web site (the “Web Site”). Use of the trademarks, service marks, logos and designs (the “RCA Trademarks”) is not permitted other than as set forth in the terms of the Agreement. Such license shall be limited to using such marks in a nominative manner, when referring to Licensor. Any goodwill acquired in using the RCA Trademarks shall vest in Licensor. Licensor owns and at all times will continue to own its respective trademarks and Licensee will not take any actions inconsistent with Licensor’s ownership rights.
- Fees. Licensee agrees to pay all fees and charges as outlined on the RCA Product Order Form(s), including, but not limited to, all applicable sales, use, value added or other taxes of any kind excluding income taxes incurred in connection with the Licensee’s subscription, as provided under the Agreement. All fees and charges are non-refundable. In the event of an assignment by Licensee per Section 19, or a merger of Licensee with another entity or the acquisition of the whole or substantial part of Licensee’s (or Licensee’s holding company’s) shares or business by another company, including another licensee, separate terms must be negotiated with Licensor, including in relation to a merger to add or combine any users/user groups from the entity merged with Licensee.

(b)All consideration provided under this Agreement is exclusive of GST unless it is specifically expressed to be GST inclusive. If a party (“Supplier”) makes a taxable supply to another party (“Recipient”) under or in connection with this Agreement in respect of which GST is payable, the Recipient must pay the Supplier an additional amount equal to the GST payable on the supply (unless the consideration for the taxable supply was specified to include GST).

(c)If an adjustment event varies the amount of GST payable by a Supplier under this Agreement, the Supplier must adjust the amount payable by the Recipient to take account of the adjustment event. Any resulting payment must be paid by the Supplier to the Recipient, or the Recipient to the Supplier (as appropriate) within ten (10) business days of the Supplier becoming aware of the adjustment event. Any payment under this clause is to be treated as an increase or decrease of the additional amount payable under clause 11(b).
(d)If the GST payable in relation to a supply is less than the amount the Recipient has paid the Supplier under clause 11(b), the Supplier is only obligated to pay a refund of GST to the Recipient to the extent the Supplier receives a refund of that GST from the Australian Taxation Office.
(e)Subject to an express provision in this Agreement to the contrary, any payment, reimbursement or indemnity required to be made to a party (the “Payee”) under this Agreement which is calculated by reference to an amount paid or payable by the Payee to a third party (“Outgoing”) will be calculated by reference to that Outgoing inclusive of GST, less the amount of any input tax credit which the Payee is entitled to claim on that Outgoing.
(f)If part of a supply is a separate supply under GST law, that part is a separate supply for the purpose of this clause.
(g)Where the Supplier, Recipient or Payee in this clause 11 is a member of a GST group, a reference to the Supplier, Recipient or Payee includes the representative member of the GST group.
