1.1 Spanish Point shall supply to the Client, in accordance with this agreement, the Services in relation to the Microsoft services or other third party services specified in the Order Form.
1.2 The supply under clause 1.1 and Price are subject to the terms and conditions set out in these CSP Reseller Terms.
2.1 Spanish Point shall provide the Microsoft Services to the Client under the terms of this agreement and the standard licence terms provided by Microsoft. It is a condition of this agreement that the Client accepts the terms of and agrees to be bound by the Microsoft Customer Agreement. See https://www.microsoft.com/licensing/docs/customeragreement. Client agrees to be bound by such terms and, where the Order Form permits the licence to extend to Client Affiliates, it must use reasonable endeavours to ensure that its Affiliates are bound under similar obligations.
2.2 In entering into this agreement, Client appoints Spanish Point as its Microsoft ‘Partner’ (as defined in the Microsoft Customer Agreement).
2.3 Affiliates may use Services subscribed to by Client provided those Services are under the same tenant but Client will have the sole right to enforce this Agreement against Spanish Point.
2.4 If any third-party services other than Microsoft Services are to be resold to Client as detailed in the Order Form via the Microsoft Azure Marketplace or otherwise, Client agrees to be bound by such terms and, where the Order Form permits the licence to extend to Client Affiliates, it must use reasonable endeavours to ensure that its Affiliates are bound under similar obligations.
3.1 A basic add/remove administration and billing service is provided by Spanish Point under this Agreement. Add/remove Services can also be self-managed by Client through their Client portal. Client may purchase additional support services under the Spanish Point SLA or other professional services by agreement in writing with Spanish Point.
4.1 Spanish Point shall submit invoices in accordance with the Order Form. The Client shall make payment of each invoice by the due date stated in that invoice or within 30 days of receipt of the invoice, whichever is later.
4.2 For consumption-based products (e.g. Azure) the price will automatically scale in accordance with the Client’s usage (or that of its Affiliates on the same tenant). Consumption-based fees and usage are visible to the Client at all times on their Client portal. Spanish Point invoices are created based on such consumption.
4.3 For seat-based or subscription products, Spanish Point invoices are created based the current number of seats or subscriptions purchased. This may exceed the number contained in the Order Form as Client may scale up or reduce subscriptions, subject to the Microsoft or other third-party terms.
4.4 The Fees, and all other payments stated in the Order Form are net of tax. The Client shall, in addition, pay to Spanish Point the amount of any tax, duty or assessment, including any applicable VAT, which Spanish Point is obliged to pay and/or collect from the Client in respect of any supply under the agreement (other than tax on Spanish Point’s income).
4.5 If the Client fails to make any payment due to Spanish Point under this agreement by the due date for payment, then, without limiting Spanish Point’s remedies under clause 16, the Client shall pay interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 8% per annum above the European Central Bank’s base rate from time to time. Such interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. The Client shall pay the interest together with the overdue amount.
4.6 Where Microsoft or other relevant third-party service increases their fees, Spanish Point may increase the annual charges at any time by giving the Client at least one months’ notice.
5.1 The Client may, by making an Ancillary Service request, request additional seats for each licence or the Client may manage this themselves through their client portal.
5.2 Where Clients chose annual Microsoft New Commerce Experience (NCE) seat-based subscriptions, there is a 12 month minimum term on such subscriptions.
5.3 There is a 7 calendar day “cooling off” period from the start of each seat-based subscription (or on renewal). During this period subscriptions can be cancelled but pro-rated charges may apply.
5.4 Once an annual subscription is chosen, and after the expiry of the “cooling off” period, the only changes permitted are adding End Users or upgrading plans.
5.5 Suspension of subscriptions will suspend Client Online Services but will not affect subscription charges.
5.6 Autorenew is turned on by default on all NCE subscriptions and trials. This can be turned off by request to Spanish Point.
5.7 On the Microsoft Azure plan, Clients have capacity to upgrade and downgrade. Client has complete control over requesting resources within Microsoft Azure. Microsoft Azure can be modified on 30 days’ notice.
5.8 If additional Services are requested outside of what is detailed in the Order Form, a new Order Form must be requested by Client to detail the new subscriptions.
The Intellectual Property Rights in the Services (other than the Microsoft Services, which are the property of Microsoft and any other third party services, which are the property of the relevant third party) are, and shall remain, the property of Spanish Point, and Spanish Point reserves the right to grant a licence to use such Services to any other party or parties.
7.1 The licence rights and restrictions granted in the Microsoft Customer Agreement or any other terms and conditions of a relevant third-party service are passed through to the Client and Client shall indemnify and hold Spanish Point harmless against any loss of damage which it may suffer or incur as a result of the Client’s breach of such terms howsoever arising.
7.2 Spanish Point may treat the Client’s breach of any Microsoft Customer Agreement, or other relevant third-party service terms and conditions, as a breach of this agreement.
8.1 Spanish Point alone shall be responsible for the supervision, direction, control, wages, taxes, pay related social insurance and benefits of Spanish Point Staff. Spanish Point assumes full responsibility for their acts and omissions and acknowledges that they are not employees or agents of the Client.
8.2 During the term of this agreement and for a period of six months after its termination neither party shall, without the prior written consent of the other, solicit, or permit any Affiliate or Associate to solicit, the employment of any person who is employed by the other party in the course of developing, supplying, maintaining or supporting the Services or any part of it.
9.1 Each party undertakes not to use the other party’s Confidential Information otherwise than in the exercise and performance of its rights and obligations under this Agreement (Permitted Purposes).
9.2 In relation to the Client’s Confidential Information:
a) Spanish Point shall treat as confidential all Confidential Information of the Client supplied under this agreement. Spanish Point shall not divulge any such Confidential Information to any person except to its own employees, and then only to those employees who need to know it for the Permitted Purposes. Spanish Point shall ensure that its employees are aware of, and comply with, this clause 9; and
b) Spanish Point may provide any subcontractor with such of the Client’s Confidential Information as it needs to know for the Permitted Purposes, provided that such subcontractor has first entered into a written obligation of confidentiality owed to Spanish Point in terms similar to clause 9.2(a) (which Spanish Point shall ensure is adhered to).
9.3 In relation to Spanish Point’s Confidential Information:
a) the Client shall treat as confidential all Confidential Information of Spanish Point contained or embodied in the System or Documentation, or otherwise supplied to the Client during the performance of this agreement;
b) the Client shall not, without the prior written consent of Spanish Point, divulge any part of Spanish Point’s Confidential Information to any person other than:
i) the Client’s Representative; and
ii) other employees of the Client or, if permitted to use the Services in the Order Form, any of its Affiliates who need to know it for the Permitted Purposes; and
c) the Client undertakes to ensure that the persons mentioned in clause 9.3(b) are made aware, before the disclosure of any part of Spanish Point’s Confidential Information, that the same is confidential and that they owe a duty of confidence to the Client in terms similar to clause 9.3(a) (which the Client shall ensure is adhered to).
9.4 The restrictions imposed by clause 9.1, clause 9.2 and clause 9.3 shall not apply to the disclosure of any Confidential Information which:
(a) is now in, or hereafter comes into, the public domain otherwise than as a result of a breach of this clause 9;
(b) before any negotiations or discussions leading to this agreement was already known by the receiving party (or, in the case of the Client, any of its Affiliates) and was obtained or acquired in circumstances under which the receiving party was (or, in the case of the Client, the Client and its Affiliates were) not bound by any form of confidentiality obligation; or
(c) is required by law or regulation to be disclosed to any person who is authorised by law or regulation to receive the same (after consultation, if practicable, with the disclosing party to limit disclosure to such authorised person to the extent necessary).
9.5 Each party shall notify the other party if any of its staff connected with the provision or receipt of the Services becomes aware of any unauthorised disclosure of any Confidential Information and shall offer reasonable assistance to the other party, at that other party’s reasonable cost, in connection with any enforcement proceedings which that other party may elect to bring against any person.
9.6 This clause 9 shall remain in full force and effect in the event of any termination of the Licence or this agreement.
10.1 Spanish Point is a controller of all Personal Data relating to the Services. Spanish Point does not access the Client ‘data plane’ in the provision of Services under this Agreement. For the purposes of this clause, the Client ‘data plane’ is the Customer Data processed on the Microsoft Services other than account name, email address and basic End User information. If Spanish Point is requested by Client to access the Client’s ‘data plane’ for any reason, the Spanish Point standard Data Processing Agreement as applies to its SLA client, will apply to any such access, unless otherwise agreed in writing. Client is the controller of all Personal Data that is on the Client’s ‘data plane’.
11.1 Neither party shall export, directly or indirectly, any technical data acquired from the other party under this agreement (or any products, including software, incorporating any such data) in breach of any applicable laws or regulations (Export Control Laws), including European Union or United States export laws and regulations, to any country for which the European Union or United States or any other government or any agency thereof at the time of export requires an export licence or other governmental approval without first obtaining such licence or approval.
11.2 Each party undertakes:
a) contractually to oblige any third party to whom it discloses or transfers any such data or products to make an undertaking to it in similar terms to the one set out above; and
b) if requested, to provide the other party with any reasonable assistance, at the reasonable cost of the other party, to enable it to perform any activity required by any competent government or agency in any relevant jurisdiction for the purpose of compliance with any Export Control Laws.
12.1 Each party warrants that
a) it has full capacity and authority, and all necessary licences, permits and consents, to enter into and perform this agreement, and that those signing this agreement are duly authorised to bind the party for whom they sign.
b) Each party warrants and represents that it is in compliance with, and will perform or use the Services in compliance with, all applicable law and regulations.
12.2 The warranties set out in clause 12.1 are in lieu of all other express or implied warranties or conditions, including implied warranties or conditions of satisfactory quality and fitness for a particular purpose, in relation to this agreement. Without limitation, Spanish Point specifically denies any implied or express representation that the Services will operate uninterrupted or error-free.
12.3 Any unauthorised modifications, use or improper use of the Services by or on behalf of the Client shall render all Spanish Point’s warranties and obligations under this agreement null and void.
12.4 The Client acknowledges that the only warranties in relation to the Microsoft Services or the supply thereof are those contained in the licence from Microsoft of the same, and that to the extent that any of such warranties are given to Spanish Point, it will pass on the benefit of such warranties to the Client and, if specified in the Order Form, its Affiliates.
13.1 For each Product, each party’s maximum, aggregate liability to the other under this Agreement is limited to direct damages finally awarded in an amount not to exceed the amounts Client was required to pay for the Products during the term of the applicable licenses, subject to the following:
a) Subscriptions. For Products ordered on a subscription basis, Spanish Point’s maximum liability to Client for any incident giving rise to a claim will not exceed the amount Client paid for the Product during the 12 months before the incident.
b) Free Products and distributable code. For Products provided free of charge and code that Client is authorized to redistribute to third parties without separate payment to Spanish Point, Spanish Point’s liability is limited to direct damages finally awarded up to US$5,000.
c) Exclusions. In no event will either party be liable for indirect, incidental, special, punitive, or consequential damages, or loss of use, loss of profits, or interruption of business, however caused or on any theory of liability.
d) Exceptions. No limitation or exclusions will apply to liability arising out of either party’s (1) confidentiality obligations (except for liability related to Customer Data, which will remain subject to the limitations and exclusions above); (2) defence obligations; or (3) violation of the other party’s intellectual property rights.
Either party may assign this Agreement to an Affiliate, but it must notify the other party in writing of the assignment. Client consents to the assignment to an Affiliate or third party, without prior notice, of any rights Spanish Point may have under this Agreement to receive payment and enforce Client’s payment obligations, and all assignees may further assign such rights without further consent. Any other proposed assignment of this Agreement must be approved by the non- assigning party in writing. Assignment will not relieve the assigning party of its obligations under the assigned Agreement. Any attempted assignment without required approval will be void.
15.1 Term. This Agreement is effective until terminated by a party, as described below.
15.2 Termination without cause. Either party may terminate this Agreement without cause on 60 days’ notice.

15.5 Termination for regulatory reasons. Spanish Point may modify, discontinue, or terminate a Product in any country or jurisdiction where there is any current or future government regulation, obligation, or other requirement, that (1) is not generally applicable to businesses operating there; (2) presents a hardship for Spanish Point to continue offering the Product without modification; or (3) causes Spanish Point to believe these terms or the Product may conflict with any such regulation, obligation, or requirement. If Spanish Point terminates a subscription for regulatory reasons, Client will receive, as its sole remedy, a credit for any subscription fees, including amounts paid in advance for unused consumption for any usage period after the termination date.
16.1 Without prejudice to any rights that have accrued under this agreement or any of its rights or remedies, either party may at any time terminate this agreement and/or the Services with immediate effect by giving written notice to the other party if:
a) the other party commences negotiations with all or any class of its creditors with a view to rescheduling any of its debts, or makes a proposal for or enters into any compromise or arrangement with its creditors other than for the sole purpose of a scheme for a solvent amalgamation of that other party with one or more other companies or the solvent reconstruction of that other party;
