Perpetua Services Terms of Business
1 Contract Formation
1.1 When the parties agree terms for us to provide Services and/or Deliverables to you, we will capture those terms in writing in an order form, statement of work or similar document (each, an “Order Form”).
1.2 Whichever is earlier of you signing an Order Form, completing an online registration form and clicking “accept” or similar assent where applicable, is your offer to purchase the Services and/or Deliverables (an “Offer”) from us on these Perpetua Services Terms of Business (the “Terms”). Our signing of an Order Form, sending of a confirmation email or supplying Services and/or Deliverables (which includes any necessary preparatory work) to you in accordance with the Order Form is acceptance of your Offer (“Acceptance”) and creates a binding contract consisting of the Order Form (including any Perpetua generated schedules or addendums included with or attached to the Order Form) and these Terms (the “Contract”).
1.3 No other terms and conditions, (including, without limitation, your own terms, the pre-printed terms on the back of any PO, or those implied), will apply to a Contract unless we have agreed in writing.
2 Term and Termination
2.1 Neither party is entitled to terminate, delay, suspend or vary a Contract other than in accordance with these Terms.
2.2 A Contract starts on the Start Date specified in the Order Form (the “Start Date”) and will continue until the earlier of:
2.2.1 termination in accordance with any specific provisions of the Order Form (if any) including during any Pilot Period; or
2.2.2 termination in accordance with these Terms.
2.3 If the Order Form expressly indicates that the Contract is subject to a Pilot Period, then you may terminate the Contract on written notice delivered to us in accordance with these Terms before the expiration of sixty (60) days from the Start Date.
2.4 Unless subject to early termination as otherwise provided in these Terms, the Contract will continue for the Initial Period set out on the Order Form (the “Initial Period”). Unless a party provides at least 90 days’ written notice to the other that it does not want the Contract to renew prior to the Initial Period End Date, the Contract will automatically extend for an additional twelve (12) month period (a “Renewal Period”) upon expiry of the Initial Period, and each subsequent annual anniversary of the expiry of the Initial Period thereafter, unless a party provides at least 90 days’ written notice to the other party prior to the expiry of a Renewal Period. This will not prevent early termination in accordance with these Terms.
2.5 A party may immediately terminate a Contract by giving the other party written notice if the other party materially or repeatedly breaches the terms of that Contract, and, (where the breach(es) are capable of remedy), fails to remedy such breach(es) within 30 days of receiving written notice requesting remedy of the breach(es).
2.6 A party may immediately terminate a Contract if the other party is subject to an Insolvency Event.

3.2 We warrant that:
3.2.1 we will use reasonable skill and care in providing the Services and Deliverables;
3.2.2 the Services and Deliverables will conform to any applicable industry standard;
3.2.3 the Services and Deliverables will comply with any applicable law; and,
3.2.4 the Services and Deliverables will conform with any specification in the Order Form (a “Specification”).
4. Fees and Payment
4.1 In consideration for the Services and Deliverables, you will pay us the Fees set out in a Contract and unless otherwise agreed in writing as part of a Contract, we will invoice you for the Fees on a monthly basis.
4.2 You must pay the Fees:
4.2.1 by the date agreed in the Contract; or
4.2.2 if no such date has been agreed, within 30 days of the date of the invoice.
4.3 You are not entitled to set-off any amount we owe you against any amount you owe us.
4.4 A party may charge the other interest on any late payments. Interest accrues each day from the original due date for payment until the actual date the overdue amount is paid at a rate equal to the lesser of 1.5% per month and maximum rate permitted by applicable law.
4.5 You must reimburse us for any reasonable costs and expenses we incur in i) recovering any late payments from you; and ii) in providing the Services and Deliverables to you including without limitation the Media Costs, if applicable. On your written request within 30 days of an invoice for costs or expenses, we will provide reasonable evidence of such costs and/or expenses.
4.6 We may suspend the provision of any Services or access to any Deliverables if you owe us anything, from 14 days of the date the amount outstanding became overdue.
4.7 On termination of a Contract anything you owe us in relation to the Contract will become due immediately. We may recover from you any costs we incur in collecting overdue monies from you.
4.8 Amounts payable by you in relation to the Contract are exclusive of regulatory advertising fees (including those charged by the Platforms), VAT, sales, use and any similar fees or taxes unless expressly agreed in writing as part of the Contract. If you do not pay such taxes you will be responsible for their payment to relevant authorities. We reserve the right to collect regulatory fees as described above and taxes from you at any time, except with respect to any taxes based on our net income. In certain jurisdictions, we may be required to collect and remit sales tax in connection with your purchase of Services and Deliverables. Any such taxes will be added to the fees and reflected on your invoice.
4.9 Following the first anniversary of the Start Date, but not more than once in each year of a Contract, we may automatically increase any fees by an amount not exceeding the lower of (i) the percentage increase in the Applicable Price Index in the preceding year plus 5% and (ii) the maximum amount permitted by law.
