Reseller Agreement - Resilio, Inc.
Date of last revision January 25, 2017
This Resilio Reseller/Affiliate Partner Agreement (the "Reseller Agreement") is between the applicable reseller ("you" or “Affiliate Partner” or "Reseller"), and Resilio, Inc. If you are agreeing to this Reseller Agreement not as an individual but on behalf of your company, then "Reseller" or “Affiliate Partner” or "you" means your company, and you are binding your company to this Reseller Agreement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, any rights granted to you hereunder are subject to your first obtaining approval by Resilio as a Reseller under this Reseller Program.
This Reseller Agreement is a separate agreement from the agreement that Resilio has with its end users at https://www.resilio.com/legal/eula-subscription (as may be modified by Resilio from time to time, "Resilio Subscription EULA"). For convenience and consistency, however, the definitions of certain terms related to our Software and services will be the same as those in the Resilio Subscription EULA.
This Reseller Agreement does not have to be signed in order to be binding. You indicate your assent to the terms by clicking on the "I agree" (or similar button) that is presented to you when applying to become a Reseller/Affiliate Partner.
1. Order Requirements.
To the extent that we make Software licenses available for resale, You may order such Software licenses for resale directly from Resilio by following the directions set forth on our website http://www.resilio.com/legal/reseller and all orders shall be subject to acceptance at Resilio’s discretion. You must provide all of the requested information including, without limitation, the identity of the end user, the end user’s business and email addresses, and the specific Software licenses, to be resold in your order ("Reseller Order"). All such information must be accurate and complete and must reflect bona fide orders you have received from end users.
2. Limited Right to Resell.
Subject to this Reseller Agreement, we grant you a one-time, non-exclusive, non- transferable right to resell the Software licenses specified in your Reseller Order to the end user specified in the Reseller Order, solely for use by such end user in accordance with the Resilio Subscription EULA. This right to resell does not apply to any other end user or Software (including without limitation any sale to any related party, organization or affiliate, or to any subsequent, additional or renewal sale to the same party).
3. Enforcement of Resilio Subscription EULA.
3.1 End User Terms. All use of the Software by end users is subject to the Resilio Subscription EULA, and you may not purport to impose any other terms pertaining to their use of the Software. You are responsible for ensuring that each end user enters into the Resilio Subscription EULA in a manner that is legally binding upon the end user. This may require you to (a) notify each end user that Resilio Software is subject to the Resilio Subscription EULA and that by placing an order with Reseller the end user agrees to the Resilio Subscription EULA, (b) include either a copy of or link to the Resilio Subscription EULA in each quotation and order form you issue to the end user, and (c) obtain from each end user written confirmation of acceptance of the Resilio Subscription EULA prior to the earlier to occur of acceptance of the order by Reseller or delivery of the Product. You must provide evidence of such acceptance by the end user to Resilio upon request.
3.2 Enforcement Cooperation. You agree to immediately notify us of any known or suspected breach of the Resilio Subscription EULA or other unauthorized use of the Software and to assist us in the enforcement of the terms of the Resilio Sync Subscription EULA.
4. Identification as Reseller.
Subject to this Reseller Agreement, you are permitted to identify yourself as a "Reseller of Resilio Sync Pro or Resilio Sync for Workgroups" or "Reseller of Resilio Connect", as applicable based on Resilio’s approval of your participation as a reseller of such Software and solely in connection with your resales of such Software. You may not use any Resilio trademark, logo or service mark ("Resilio Marks") except for the aforementioned purpose. All goodwill arising from your use of Resilio Marks inures to the benefit of Resilio.
5. Payment and Delivery.
5.1. Fees. Your non-refundable, non-cancelable payment to Resilio is due when you submit your Reseller Order.
5.2. Delivery. Upon receipt of payment (for Resilio Sync Pro or Sync for Workgroups), or upon our receipt and acceptance of a Purchase Order (for Resilio Connect), we will deliver the applicable Software license key, or other information necessary for end users to use or access the applicable Software, directly to you in accordance with our standard delivery procedures. Once the Software license is issued to you, the subscription term will begin as defined at: https://www.resilio.com/legal/eula-subscription. When we deliver the license keys to you, you agree that you will, in turn, deliver them directly to the end user specified in the Reseller Order, and not to use or access the Software, in any way. You must either delete all license keys promptly thereafter or maintain them in confidence.
5.3. Taxes. Payments made by you under this Reseller Agreement exclude any taxes or duties payable in respect of the Software in the jurisdiction where the payment is either made or received. To the extent that any such taxes or duties are payable by Resilio, you must pay to Resilio the amount of such taxes or duties in addition to any fees owed under this Reseller Agreement.
5.4. End User Pricing and Payment; Refunds. You will independently set your own pricing to each end user. You bear all risk of non-payment by end users, and you are solely responsible for all of your costs and expenses. You may not terminate a Reseller Order or receive any refunds due to non-payment by an end user. If Resilio provides any refund to an end user under our standard return policy, Resilio, at its option, will refund the applicable amounts either directly to the end user or to you for distribution to the end user but will have no obligation to do so. You agree to cooperate with Resilio in connection with any such refund. Furthermore, you may not re-use or re-sell any license to the Software once it has been initially provided to an end user, even if such end user has been issued a refund.
5.5. Resilio accepts certain debit and credit cards as well as other forms of cash payment (e.g., Paypal transfers) as payment methods (each, an “Accepted Payment Method”) for Products, subject to the procedures and rules contained in these Terms and any applicable contract with the Accepted Payment Method. Accepted Payment Methods may vary by country, by Product and may change from time to time. When you purchase with an Accepted Payment Method, the fees for your Product will be billed on the date of your purchase or, for Products that are not delivered or made available on the date of purchase, when your Product is shipped or becomes available to you, as described below. If you purchase a subscription for a Product that renews automatically, such as monthly or annually, you agree that we may process your Accepted Payment Method on each monthly, annual or other renewal term (based on the applicable billing cycle), on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your Premium Service or Product subscription, as applicable. In addition, you agree that we have permission to retain and/or share with financial institutions and payment processing firms (including any institutions or firms we retain in the future) information regarding your purchase and your submitted payment information in order to process your purchase. If your Product subscription began on a day not contained in a subsequent month (e.g., your service began on January 30, and there is no February 30), Resilio will process your payment on the last day of such month. See below for information describing what you must do to change your Accepted Payment Method.
5.6. Changes in Fees.
We may change the price of any Product from time to time, and add new fees and charges for certain features or to reflect a change in business or legal rules, but we will send advance notice of changes in recurring subscription fees by email to the address in your account information. Any increase in charges for the same Product would not apply until the expiration of your then current billing cycle, unless otherwise specifically provided in our notice to you, and would become effective no sooner than the next time you would be charged for that Product. If you do not agree to pay the new price or other applicable charges, you may elect not to renew the Product subscription before the price change goes into effect, which cancellation would be effective at the expiration of your then current billing cycle. See “Subscription Cancellation” below for information on how you must cancel a Product subscription.
5.7. Changes to Payment Methods and Account Information.
You are responsible for ensuring that all of your account information, including your email address and all payment information (address, debit or credit card number and expiration date), is accurate and up to date at all times. You may change this information at any time. If you have a Product subscription, you may notify Resilio’s customer service by making the changes at http://orders.getsync.com. If your credit card expires or the information is otherwise invalid, or you make changes to your billing account too close in time to when we charge for any Product subscription (so we cannot reasonably act on your changes prior to billing), we will probably not be aware of this, and we will bill the current charges to the card we had on record; the continuation of your Product subscription constitutes your authorization for us to do so, and you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts and any charges incurred by you or us as a result of billing to an invalid card.
5.8. Subscription Cancellation.
You may elect to cancel a Product subscription at any time. Any cancellation of a Product subscription will be effective as of the end of the then-current billing period. If you desire to cancel your subscription for the Product as of the end of the current billing period, you may do so at https://orders.getsync.com/account/me/login/
6. No Use Rights; Resilio Reserved Rights.
Only the end user customer of the Software may use the Software. You are not permitted to use any Software resold under this Reseller Agreement for your own benefit. To the extent that you nevertheless gain any access to the Software, all license restrictions in the Resilio Subscription EULA apply to you. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Reseller Agreement, except for the limited resale right in Section 2 above, Resilio and its suppliers have and will retain all rights, title and interest (including without limitation all patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret and other intellectual property rights) in and to all Software, service descriptions, documentation, and underlying technology ("Resilio Technology"), and all copies, modifications and derivative works thereof. You acknowledge that you are obtaining only a limited right to resell the Software and that irrespective of any use of the words "purchase", "sale" or like terms hereunder no ownership rights are being conveyed to you under this Reseller Agreement or otherwise.
7. Reseller Obligations and Liability.
7.1. End User Relationships; Business Practices. You agree not to represent yourself as an agent or employee of Resilio and agree that we will have primary control over any end user communication regarding the Software once you submit a Reseller Order. You will not make any representations regarding Resilio, on Resilio’s behalf, or about any Software. You agree not to engage in any deceptive, misleading, illegal, or unethical practices that may be detrimental to Resilio or its Software and agree to comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations while operating under this Reseller Agreement, including without limitation the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and any similar laws or regulations in any applicable jurisdiction.
7.2. Indemnity. You are fully responsible for all liabilities and expenses of any type whatsoever that may arise on account of your resale of Software. You will indemnify, hold harmless and (at Resilio’s option) defend Resilio from and against any claim, loss, cost, liability or damage, including attorneys’ fees, for which Resilio becomes liable arising from or relating to: (a) any breach or alleged breach by you of any term of this Reseller Agreement, (b) the issuance by you of any warranty or representation regarding Resilio or its Software or services not specified in the Resilio Subscription EULA, or (c) any of your other acts or omissions in connection with the marketing or resale of licenses to the Software under this Reseller Agreement.
7.3. Support. Resilio does not have an obligation to provide free support to end users and will at its own discretion provide support under the standard terms of its then- current support policy. Reseller will use their best efforts to offer end user support for the Software.
8.1. Termination. We may terminate this Reseller Agreement if you materially breach any provision in this Reseller Agreement and fail to cure such breach within five (5) days of notice of such breach to the address (including but not limited to e-mail address) provided to us. In addition, either party may terminate this Reseller Agreement for any reason or no reason upon thirty (30) days’ notice to the other party. Resilio may also terminate this Reseller Agreement immediately upon notice to you if (a) it ceases to offer the current Reseller program or (b) it reasonably believes that you have breached Sections 6, 7, 10 or 14 or that continuing hereunder could result in business or legal liability for Resilio or otherwise harm Resilio or its end users.
8.2. Effect of Termination. You expressly agree that Resilio will have no obligation or liability to you resulting from termination or expiration of this Reseller Agreement in accordance with its terms. Upon termination or expiration of this Reseller Agreement: (a) you must immediately cease identifying yourself as an Resilio Reseller and using Resilio Marks in connection with your resale activities hereunder, (b) you must destroy all Confidential Information in your possession and certify destruction (unless we request that you return such materials to us) and (c) Sections 5 (Payment and Delivery) (but only with respect to Reseller Orders completed during the Term), 6 (No Use Rights; Resilio Reserved Rights) through 13 (General) will survive.
9. Changes to Agreement.
From time to time, we may modify this Reseller Agreement. The version of this Reseller Agreement in place at the time you submit each Reseller Order is the version that will govern such order. We will use reasonable efforts to notify you of these changes through communications through our website or other forms of communication, but we also suggest that you bookmark this Reseller Agreement and read it periodically.
Except as otherwise set forth in this Reseller Agreement, each party agrees that all code, inventions, know-how, business, technical and financial information it obtains (as "Receiving Party") from the disclosing party ("Disclosing Party") constitute the confidential property of the Disclosing Party ("Confidential Information"), provided that it is identified as confidential at the time of disclosure or should be reasonably known by the Receiving Party to be Confidential Information due to the nature of the information disclosed and the circumstances surrounding the disclosure. Any Resilio Technology and any performance information relating to the Software shall be deemed Confidential Information of Resilio without any marking or further designation. Except as expressly authorized herein, the Receiving Party will hold in confidence and not use or disclose any Confidential Information. The Receiving Party’s nondisclosure obligation shall not apply to information which the Receiving Party can document: (i) was rightfully in its possession or known to it prior to receipt of the Confidential Information; (ii) is or has become public knowledge through no fault of the Receiving Party; (iii) is rightfully obtained by the Receiving Party from a third party without breach of any confidentiality obligation; (iv) is independently developed by employees of the Receiving Party who had no access to such information; or (v) is required to be disclosed pursuant to a regulation, law or court order (but only to the minimum extent required to comply with such regulation or order and with advance notice to the Disclosing Party). The Receiving Party acknowledges that disclosure of Confidential Information would cause substantial harm for which damages alone would not be a sufficient remedy, and therefore that upon any such disclosure by the Receiving Party the Disclosing Party shall be entitled to appropriate equitable relief in addition to whatever other remedies it might have at law.
11. Resilio Commitments; DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES.
For the avoidance of doubt, any and all commitments, indemnities and other terms and conditions offered by Resilio with respect to use of the Software are made directly by Resilio to the end user in accordance with the Resilio Subscription EULA and do not extend to you as a Reseller. We make NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, TO you as a RESELLER, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR TITLE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.
12. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.

12.2. Liability Cap. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, RESILIO’S AND ITS THIRD-PARTY SUPPLIERS’ ENTIRE LIABILITY UNDER THIS RESELLER AGREEMENT SHALL NOT EXCEED THE AMOUNTS ACTUALLY PAID BY RESELLER TO RESILIO IN RESPECT OF THE RESELLER ORDER THAT IS THE SUBJECT OF THIS RESELLER AGREEMENT DURING THE SIX MONTHS PRECEDING THE INCIDENT GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM.

This Reseller Agreement is intended for the sole and exclusive benefit of you and Resilio and is not intended to benefit any third party.
