In respect of Bookings received from Customers, if a Customer requests an invoice from the Supply Partner, the Supply Partner shall generate in favour of the concerned Customer an invoice for the concerned Booking. The Supply Partner shall, from time to time, provide such invoices to Headout. If Headout receives a claim under “chargeback” related to the Supply Partner prior to the utilisation of the Booking by a Customer, Headout shall inform the Supply Partner of the same and cancel the Booking.

The Supply Partner shall respond to such information requests within five (5) business days of receipt of the request. The Parties agree that, in any scenario, Headout shall not be liable to bear any loss in relation to a chargeback claim pertaining to the Supply Partner. If the Service Price has already been remitted to the Supply Partner, for a Booking against which a chargeback is awarded, Headout shall adjust the amount in the following reconciliation with the Supply Partner.

If a Force Majeure Event prevents a Party from complying with any one or more obligations under this Agreement, that inability to comply will not constitute breach if (i) that Party uses reasonable efforts to perform those obligations,(ii) that Party’s inability to perform those obligations is not because of its failure to (A) take reasonable measures to protect itself against events or circumstances of the same type as that Force Majeure Event or (B) develop and maintain a reasonable contingency plan to respond to events or circumstances of the same type as that Force Majeure Event, and (iii) that Party complies with its obligations under Clause 13.2.
If a Force Majeure Event occurs, the noncomplying Party shall promptly notify the other Party of occurrence of that Force Majeure Event, its effect on performance, and how long the noncomplying Party expects it to last. Thereafter the noncomplying Party shall update that information as reasonably necessary. During a Force Majeure Event, the noncomplying Party shall use reasonable efforts to limit damages to the other Party and to resume its performance under this Agreement.
The Supply Partner shall indemnify, defend, and hold Headout and its employees, directors, agents, and Customers harmless from and against any action, claim, suit, proceeding, demand, investigation, or charge alleging any costs, losses, liabilities, damages, fines, judgments, fees, or expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs) arising out of:(i) the Supply Partner’s performance of the Services; (ii) the Supply Partner’s failure to comply with Applicable Law; (iii) any personal injury, property damage, or death resulting from any act or omission of the Supply Partner; or (iv) the Supply Partner’s breach or alleged breach of this Agreement, including deficiency, inaccuracy or non-compliance with any representations or warranties hereunder. The Supply Partner shall undertake its defense obligation toward indemnification of Headout not later than ten (10) days following the Supply Partner’s receipt of written notice thereof from Headout using counsel reasonably acceptable to Headout. Headout has the right to participate in such defense using its own counsel at its own cost. If the Supply Partner fails to respond to any claim under this Clause and fulfil its obligations hereunder following such ten (10) day period, Headout shall have the right to control the defense and settlement of any such claim using counsel of its own choice. The Supply Partner may not settle any action, claim, suit, proceeding, demand, investigation, or charge under this Clause without Headout’s prior written consent.
EXCEPT FOR THE SUPPLY PARTNER’S INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS, THE SUPPLY PARTNER’S BREACH OF ITS OBLIGATIONS UNDER CLAUSE 6, OR A PARTY’S GROSS NEGLIGENCE OR WILFUL MISCONDUCT, IN NO EVENT WILL A PARTY BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER PARTY FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT, EXEMPLARY, SPECIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, WHETHER ARISING OUT OF BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), OR OTHERWISE, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH DAMAGE WAS FORESEEABLE AND WHETHER OR NOT A PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
HEADOUT’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT SHALL NOT EXCEED THE AMOUNTS PAID BY HEADOUT TO THE SUPPLY PARTNER HEREUNDER IN THE TWELVE-MONTH PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO A CLAIM HEREUNDER. THE DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATIONS IN CLAUSE 5.2 AND THIS CLAUSE 14 WILL APPLY NOTWITHSTANDING ANY FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY AND TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW.
The term of this Agreement commences from the Effective Date and shall continue to be valid until terminated.
A Party may terminate this Agreement without cause on thirty (30) days prior written notice to the other Party. A Party may terminate this Agreement if the other Party materially breaches this Agreement and fails to cure such breach within fifteen (15) days of receiving written notice thereof from the non-breaching Party.
Without prejudice to Clause 15.2, Headout shall be entitled to terminate this Agreement on the following grounds:
any material deficiency or inaccuracy in the representations and warranties furnished by the Supply Partner; provided the Supply Partner rectifies the matters pertaining to such representations and warranties within 30 days of receipt of a notice from Headout;
upon occurrence of Change of Control unless the prior consent of Headout is obtained for the Change of Control;
upon an event of bankruptcy of the Supply Partner. Such bankruptcy should have been paased by an appropriate court/authority;
frequent or multiple complaints and grievances received from the Customers in respect of the Services rendered;
Upon termination of this Agreement, the Supply Partner shall continue to perform Services under Bookings made prior to the effective date of such termination and the terms of this Agreement will continue to apply to such Bookings, provided that Headout reserves the right to cancel such Bookings immediately upon termination. Headout shall, within seven (7) business days of the effective date of termination, remit/deposit the undisputed Service Price amounts (net of Headout’s commission) received in respect of Bookings received prior to the effective date of termination.

Governing Law and Jurisdiction: This Agreement will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without reference to conflict of laws principles. Each Party hereby irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in the State of New York with regard to any dispute arising out of or relating to this Agreement.
Injunctive Relief: The Supply Partner acknowledges and agrees that any breach of its obligations with respect to Confidential Information may cause substantial harm to Headout, which could not be remedied by payment of damages alone. Accordingly, the Supply Partner hereby agrees that Headout will be entitled to seek preliminary and permanent injunctive relief in any jurisdiction where damage may occur without a requirement to post a bond, in addition to all other remedies available to it for any such breach.
Independent Contractors: The relationship of the Parties established by this Agreement is that of independent contractors, and nothing contained in this Agreement will be construed to(i) give either Party the power to direct and control the day-to-day activities of the other or(ii) constitute the Parties as partners, joint venturers, co-owners, or otherwise as participants in a joint or common undertaking.
Assignment; Binding Effect: The Supply Partner shall not assign or delegate this Agreement or any of its rights, or duties under this Agreement (whether by merger, sale of assets, sale of equity, or otherwise) without the prior written consent of Headout, and any purported assignment shall be void and of no force or effect. A Change of Control of Supply Partner shall be deemed an assignment for the purposes of the consent requirement of this Clause. Headout may freely assign or delegate this Agreement or any of its licenses, rights, or duties hereunder in Headout’s sole discretion. This Agreement will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Parties hereto, their successors, and permitted assigns.
Amendments: No modification of, or amendment to, this Agreement will be effective unless in writing signed by an authorized representative of each Party.
Partial Invalidity: If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, then the remaining provisions will, nevertheless, remain in full force and effect, and such provision will be reformed in a manner to effectuate the original intent of the Parties as closely as possible and remain enforceable. If such reformation is not possible in a manner that is enforceable, then such term will be severed from the remaining terms, and the remaining terms will remain in effect.
No Waiver: No waiver of any term or condition of this Agreement will be valid or binding on either Party unless the same will have been mutually assented to in writing by an officer of both Parties. The failure of either Party to enforce at any time any of the provisions of this Agreement, or the failure to require at any time performance by the other Party of any of the provisions of this Agreement, will in no way be construed to be a present or future waiver of such provisions, nor in any way affect the ability of either Party to enforce each and every such provision thereafter.
Entire Agreement: This Agreement sets forth the entire agreement and understanding of the Parties relating to the subject matter herein and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous communications, representations, discussions, and agreements between the Parties with respect to such subject matter.
Notices: All notices and other communications required or permitted under this Agreement shall be in writing and shall be sent by electronic mail or delivered by hand, messenger or overnight or second-day courier service addressed. Each such notice or other communication shall for all purposes of this Agreement be treated as effective or having been given(i) if delivered by hand, messenger or overnight or second-day courier service, when delivered (or if sent via a nationally-recognized overnight or second-day courier service, freight prepaid, specifying next-business-day or second-business-day delivery, one business day or two business days, respectively, after deposit with the courier), or(ii) if sent via electronic mail, when directed to the relevant electronic mail address, and receipt is confirmed by non-automated response.
