Terms of Services
These terms of service (these “Terms”) are the only terms that govern the provision of services by Pinpoint Management (“Pinpoint”) to the client named on the applicable Order Form (“Client”). The order form executed by Pinpoint and Client (the “Order Form”) and these Terms (collectively, this “Agreement”) comprise the entire agreement between the parties, and supersede all prior or contemporaneous understandings, agreements, negotiations, representations and warranties, and communications, both written and oral. In the event of any conflict between these Terms and the Order Form, these Terms shall govern, unless the Order Form expressly states that the terms and conditions of the Order Form shall control. These Terms prevail over any of Client’s general terms and conditions regardless whether or when Client has submitted its request for proposal, order, or such terms.
Pinpoint shall provide to Client the services indicated on the Order Form and described in greater detail at Rate Card (the “Services”) in accordance with these Terms.
3. Client’s Obligations
Client shall cooperate with Pinpoint in all matters relating to the Services and, without limiting the foregoing, shall complete and uninterrupted attention during training or consulting sessions with Pinpoint. If Pinpoint’s performance of its obligations under this Agreement is prevented or delayed by any act or omission of Client or its agents, subcontractors, consultants, or employees, Pinpoint shall not be deemed in breach of its obligations under this Agreement or otherwise liable for any costs, charges, or losses sustained or incurred by Client, in each case, to the extent arising directly or indirectly from such prevention or delay.
4. Term and Termination.
4.1. The term of this Agreement (the “Initial Term”) commences on the effective date set forth in the Order Form (the “Effective Date”) and continues thereafter for the initial term length corresponding to the Services selected by Client, unless terminated earlier pursuant to Section 4.2. Upon expiration of the Initial Term, this Agreement shall automatically renew for successive one (1) month terms (each a “Renewal Term” and together with the Initial Term, the “Term”) unless either party provides written notice of nonrenewal at least thirty (30) days before the end of the then-current term, or this Agreement is terminated earlier pursuant to Section 4.2. If the Term is renewed for any Renewal Terms, the terms and conditions of this Agreement during each such Renewal Term shall be the same as the terms and conditions in effect immediately prior to such renewal, subject to any change in the Services or the fees payable Customer as set forth in Section 6. If either Party provides timely notice of its intent not to renew this Agreement, then, unless otherwise sooner terminated in accordance with its terms, this Agreement shall terminate on the expiration of the then-current Term.
4.2. In addition to any remedies that may be provided under this Agreement, Pinpoint may terminate this Agreement with immediate effect upon written notice to Client if Client (a) fails to pay any amount when due under this Agreement; (b) breaches any term of this Agreement; or (c) becomes insolvent, files a petition for bankruptcy or commences or has commenced against it proceedings relating to bankruptcy, receivership, reorganization, or assignment for the benefit of creditors.
5. Fees and Expenses; Payment Terms; Interest on Late Payments
5.1. In consideration of the Services provided by Pinpoint and the rights granted to Client under this Agreement, Client shall pay the applicable fees established by Pinpoint and provided to Client in writing, and which Pinpoint may modify from time to time pursuant to Section 6. For convenience, the fees applicable as of the Effective Date may be set forth in the Order Form.
5.2. Client authorizes Pinpoint to charge the credit card set forth on the Order Form (or any alternative credit card provided by Client) for all fees due pursuant to Section 5.1 for the Initial Term and any Renewal Term(s). Such charges shall be made in advance of Services for the applicable Term (for example, if the Initial Term is six months, Client will be billed in advance for the first six months, and monthly for each subsequent Renewal Term). Client shall ensure that the credit card information provided to Pinpoint is valid and up to date. If Client’s credit card is refused or if any payment is not received by Pinpoint when due, Pinpoint may (a) charge interest on any unpaid amounts at a rate of 1.5% per month or, if lower, the maximum amount permitted under applicable law, from the date such payment was due until the date paid; (b) suspend performance for all Services until payment has been made in full; and/or (c) terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 4.2.
5.3. Except as set forth in Section 10.3(b), all payments made by Client pursuant to this Agreement are nonrefundable.
Pinpoint may, from time to time change the Services without the consent of Client provided that such changes do not materially affect the nature or scope of the Services. Pinpoint may change the Services or the fees applicable to the Services at any time; provided, however, that any such changes will not apply unless Pinpoint has given Client written notice of such changes at least forty (40) days before the end of the then-current Term, in which case the price change or change in Services will be effective upon the start of the coming Renewal Term and thereafter.
Client shall be responsible for all sales, use and excise taxes, and any other similar taxes, duties and charges of any kind imposed by any federal, state, or local governmental entity on any amounts payable by Client hereunder.

Pinpoint hereby grants Client a license to use all Intellectual Property Rights free of additional charge and on a non-exclusive, worldwide, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, fully paid-up, royalty-free, and perpetual basis to the extent necessary to enable Client to make reasonable use of the Deliverables and the Services.
9. Confidential Information

Confidential Information does not include information that is (a) in the public domain; (b) known to Client at the time of disclosure; or (c) rightfully obtained by Client on a non-confidential basis from a third party. Client agrees to use the Confidential Information only to make use of the Services and Deliverables. Pinpoint shall be entitled to injunctive relief for any violation of this Section.
10. Limited Warranty

10.2. Pinpoint shall not be liable for a breach of the warranty set forth in Section 10.1 unless Client gives written notice of the defective Services, reasonably described, to Pinpoint within ten (10) days of the time when Client discovers or ought to have discovered that the Services were defective.
10.3. Subject to Section 10.2, Pinpoint shall, in its sole discretion, either (a) reperform such Services (or the defective part); or (b) credit or refund the price of such Services at the pro rata contract rate.
11. Disclaimer of Warranties

WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, CLIENT ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT PINPOINT DOES NOT WARRANT OR GUARANTY ANY PARTICULAR RESULTS OF THE SERVICES.
