PROPERTY MANAGEMENT PARTNER SERVICES AGREEMENT
THIS MASTER MEDIA SERVICES AGREEMENT (“MSA“), together with the Insertion Order (as defined below) between Company and Intempus Realty (“Intempus”) and such other written specifications as Intempus may from time to time determine in its sole discretion (all such instruments are, together, the “Agreement”) govern and control the placement and promotion of the property management and related services of Company described in such Insertion Order across Intempus’s network of hosted web pages, search-engine channels, third-party web sites, email programs and other effective distribution vehicles (together, the “Network”). The term “Services” as used in this Agreement means the listing promotion and distribution services described in the Insertion Order. Capitalized terms not otherwise defined below shall have the meaning assigned in the Insertion Order. COMPANY’S EXECUTION OF AN INSERTION ORDER SHALL CONSTITUTE ITS ACCEPTANCE AND AGREEMENT TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS MSA.
The parties agree as follows:
. Intempus shall provide the Services to Company according to written insertion order attachments to this Agreement upon which the parties may agree from time to time (each, an “Insertion Order”). Each Insertion Order contains additional terms and conditions that are specific to the Services that are the subject of such Insertion Order and is incorporated into this Agreement by reference and made a part hereof. Unless otherwise specifically described in an Insertion Order, all listings shall be deemed run of network subject to placement at Intempus’s sole discretion.
- Payment Terms
- Company shall pay to Intempus the fees and charges described in the Insertion Order, as such fees and charges may be amended from time to time by mutual agreement of the parties. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Company acknowledges and agrees (i) that Intempus’s media pricing is subject to change in response to Company’s fluctuating lead demand, (ii) that often such fluctuations occur with such frequency that price adjustments by written agreement is not practicable, and (iii) that in such situations, both lead requirements and the corresponding price adjustments are discussed and agreed to in telephonic and/or email communications. The parties agree that in such circumstances, Intempus’s records shall be conclusive proof of the agreed upon lead fee payable by Company for the related leads under the then current Insertion Order.
- Except as limited in this Section, Company may dispute payment for any lead that includes invalid registration information. All such disputes must be submitted via email in writing to Intempus within fourteen (14) calendar days from the date the lead in question is delivered to Company, together with an electronic report identifying the disputed lead and the reason that such lead is disputed. Intempus shall review disputed leads and corresponding reports within seven (7) days of receipt thereof and may, in its sole discretion, issue a credit for all or any portion of such disputed leads, provided that Company returns the rejected User Information (as defined below) to Intempus and destroys all copies or record of such data that may exist, in whatever form or medium, in Company’s database. Leads not disputed within such fourteen (14) day period shall be deemed accepted and payable by Company. In addition and notwithstanding the foregoing, use by Company of a lead or any element of the User Information contained in such lead shall be deemed Company’s acceptance thereof and payment therefor shall be due.
. Company grants to Intempus a limited, non-exclusive, royalty-free right and license to use, display and reproduce Company’s trademarks, service marks, logos, images, photographs, copyrights and proprietary ad copy (together, “IP Assets”) throughout the Network and in such media and collateral materials as Intempus may elect, all for the purpose of promoting the goods, services and relationship of Company and Intempus as herein contemplated. The license granted hereunder shall terminate upon the expiration or earlier termination of this Agreement, and Company shall at all times retain all rights in and to its intellectual property. Intempus retains all proprietary rights in and to all of Intempus’s IP Assets, including but not limited to, the listing service technology, any Services provided hereunder (including all software, source codes, modifications, updates and enhancements thereof or any other aspect of the Services), the name “Intempus “ “” or any derivatives thereof, and any other trademarks and logos that are owned or controlled by Intempus and made available to Company. No implied licenses are granted herein to either party.
. During the term of the Insertion Order and for a period of ninety (90) days following its expiration or earlier termination, Company shall not, directly or through any third-party agent or independent contractor, solicit (i) the distribution or promotional services business from any entity in the Network, or (ii) any employee of Intempus for the purpose of hiring, attempting to hire or offering such employee any type of employment opportunity whatsoever. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the prohibition in this Section 5 shall not prevent Company from maintaining a contractual relationship with a Network entity existing as of the Effective Date of the Insertion Order.
- Term; Termination
. Unless earlier terminated in accordance with the termination rights herein set forth, this Agreement shall commence as of the Effective Date set forth in the initial Insertion Order, and shall remain in effect until all Insertion Order(s) hereto have expired or terminated, as the case may be. Either party may terminate this Agreement at any time for cause or convenience by providing the other party not less than thirty (30) days prior written notice; provided the terms of Sections 3, 5, 7-13 and 16 hereof shall survive any such termination.
- Customer Information
. The parties acknowledge that certain data, including without limitation, all information disclosed by the parties’ respective users (“User Information”), data analytics, actual performance metrics and the terms of this Agreement shall be disclosed, developed and generated in the course of the parties’ performance hereunder. All such information shall be deemed the confidential information (“Confidential Information”) of the party disclosing, collecting or generating it, except that Confidential Information shall not include any information that (a) is publicly available at the time of disclosure; (b) becomes publicly available after disclosure without breach of this Agreement by the non-disclosing party; (c) is in the non-disclosing party’s possession prior to disclosure; or (d) is independently developed by the non-disclosing party without use of the Confidential Information of the disclosing party. Intempus and Company shall each treat the Confidential Information owned or developed pursuant to this Agreement in accordance with controlling law and their respective internal privacy policies then in effect. Unless law or legal process otherwise compels disclosure, the terms of this Agreement and any related information or data arising from or related to this Agreement shall remain Confidential Information and each party shall limit disclosure of any provision hereof or data related hereto to only those employees, consultants and third-party service providers with a need to know such information. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, the parties may publicly disclose the general nature of the arrangement herein contemplated, provided that in no event shall such general description include the financial terms hereof. The confidentiality obligations set forth in this Section 7 are in addition to, and not in lieu of, the parties’ respective confidentiality obligations set forth in the Mutual Nondisclosure Agreement between the parties, if any, which remains in full force and effect. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Intempus retains sole ownership and proprietary rights in and to the User Information disclosed in all leads generated under this Agreement; provided, that Company may establish non-exclusive, separate ownership individual lead-sourced User Information upon Company’s payment of the corresponding lead fee to Intempus therefor. Except as provided in the immediately preceding sentence, all lead-sourced User Information is and remains the Confidential Information of Intempus.

Company represents that it is authorized to make such assignment, and Company agrees to provide all reasonable assistance to Intempus in the collection of such accounts.
