Unless otherwise stated in your Subscription Plan or elsewhere in these Terms, the term of each Subscription Plan is open ended and will be billed monthly. HERE will charge the applicable fees (including overage fees) in accordance with the billing cycle using your selected payment method.
All fees are nonrefundable and exclusive of applicable taxes and duties, including sales tax and VAT and any income taxes calculated based on the payments under these Terms, for which HERE is solely responsible.

10. YOUR RECORDS AND TRACKING OF UNITS
You will keep information that is sufficient to demonstrate the scope of your use and distribution of all HERE Materials for 3 years.

If your Subscription Plan includes a maximum number of units not tracked by HERE and you exceed such maximum number, you must upgrade your Subscription Plan to the applicable volume tier before the start of your next billing cycle.
In order to verify your compliance with these Terms, including but not limited to your obligations under Section 10 above: 1) you will give HERE access to your Applications for our review; and 2) we may inspect your records on your premises upon 30 days’ prior written notice and without causing unreasonable disruption.

b) Termination for Convenience: You may terminate any open-ended Subscription Plan or the agreement under these Terms at any time with three (3) months prior written notice to HERE so that your individual Subscription Plan terminates at the end of the billing period following the end of the notice period.

2. PARTNER CERTIFICATION LEVEL AND DISCOUNT
2.1. The Partner Certification Program benefits and requirements are posted in the HERE Partner Portal.
2.2. The Fees are subject to the applicable discount based on Partner’s certification level (the “Partner Certification Discount”). The default certification level for a new Partner is “Registered Partner”. HERE reserves the right to change or add criteria which determine the Partner’s certification level in its sole discretion.
2.3. The Partner Certification Discount applies for the term during which Partner meets the criteria of the respective certification level, including but not limited to Partner’s Actual Achieved Revenue. HERE will re-evaluate Partner’s certification level and the Partner Certification Discount at least every 12 months in parallel with the review of the Actual Achieved Revenue calculation as set out below.
2.4. HERE will calculate the Partner’s Actual Achieved Revenue for each calendar year (January 1st to December 31st) of the Term by February 15th of the following year. “Actual Achieved Revenue” means the net license fees (after applying discounts and excluding impact of any tax payable by HERE, such as withholding tax, if applicable):
a. reported by the Partner to HERE (to the extent that the fees are based on self-reported units of measure),
b. invoiced by HERE directly (such as Platform transactions, as applicable) and
c. paid by Partner.
The calculation will be based exclusively on HERE’s records and will not be subject to adjustments. Amounts for any period will not carry over into subsequent calendar year(s). HERE will inform Partner of such Actual Achieved Revenue calculation in a timely manner.
The corresponding Partner Certification Discount shall apply as of the 1st of March of each calendar year of the Term. If Partner later revises its reports related to a calendar year on which a Partner Certification Discount is based, HERE shall have the right to adjust the Partner Certification Discount accordingly and charge any amounts to Partner that would have otherwise been due. No refunds shall be applied.
2.5. If the Partner Certification Discount is based on a minimum annual license fee (“MALF”) commitment, the corresponding Partner Certification Discount shall apply as of the beginning of the contract year for which the MALF commitment is made.
The following terms apply in addition to Sec. 9 of the Terms:
3.1 Orders/Quotes. Changes to Subscription Plan fees do not affect Partner “orders”. “Order” refers to a subscription for which Partner has created a quote that has been approved by HERE.
3.2 MALFs. If explicitly agreed between the Parties, Partner shall pay HERE a non-refundable (except for termination for cause by Partner) minimum annual license fee (“MALF”). The MALF agreed in the Commercial Conditions Confirmation shall be applied annually to all fees due. Fees or MALFs do not apply to any other fee periods and may not be credited toward or offset other amounts due to HERE.
Sec. 10 of the Terms about “Your records and tracking of units” also applies to the use of HERE Materials licensed by Partner’s customers. This means that, inter alia, Partner shall upgrade the Subscription Plan of his customers if needed.

In addition to the above, the Parties will make good faith efforts to discuss mutually agreeable terms and/or language for additional use of either Party’s name or brand/logo in either Party’s internal and external marketing materials regarding the Parties’ relationship, including referencing Partner in a list of HERE’s Partners that use HERE products and services. Any such use of either Party’s name or brand/logo are subject to the other Party’s prior review and express written consent. HERE hereby consents to the use of HERE’s marks in co-branded material limited to the templates and documents provided by HERE on the Partner Marketing Platform. HERE reserves the right to review the material created by Partner.
6.3 Partner Information. Partner agrees to provide truthful and complete information, to keep that information current, and to update the information regularly. Partner agrees that HERE is not responsible for errors in the HERE partner directory, regardless of the cause, and agrees that HERE may take down information it reasonably believes is incorrect or misleading. Partner also acknowledges that the HERE partner directory contains contact information of other partners who may compete with Partner, and that HERE is not liable or responsible for any resulting harm to Partner, including lost opportunity, revenue, sales, or profit.
6.4.1 HERE may provide Partner with marketing materials that Partner may use for the marketing of HERE Materials or Applications.
6.4.2 Partner shall not alter or tamper with any HERE Marks, misrepresent the relationship between HERE and Partner, or communicate or imply any sponsorship and/or endorsement by HERE of Partner’s business unless such sponsorship or endorsement is explicitly stated in a written contract or agreement. Upon termination or expiration of the Terms, Partner must immediately cease all use of HERE Marks.
6.4.3 Partner shall not engage in any search engine marketing campaigns (e.g., via “Google Ads”) using the term “HERE” or HERE’s Marks without HERE’s prior written approval.
6.4.4 Partner Marketing Platform.
a. In cases where the Parties engage in joint marketing campaigns partly funded by HERE, Partner shall deploy and create co-branded material using the Partner Marketing Platform and allow HERE to maintain visibility on use, deployment methods, number and frequency of leads generated from all co-branded material.
b. Partner shall inform HERE about any use of the co-branded material outside of the Partner Marketing Platform, in particular concerning the following points: the number of generated leads directly generated by the views, impressions, clicks, attendance or any other action carried out by a target prospect which resulted in their expressed interest in the promoted marketing material containing HERE Marks, the average opportunity size for the corresponding end customer opportunity, if this metric is known, the average conversion rate from these leads into opportunities, when this metric is known as well as the average sales cycle length for the relevant opportunity, industry or target when appropriate. Such information from Partner shall not include any personal data of third parties.
c. Partner is responsible for their content uploaded to and created in the Partner Marketing Platform and shall indemnify HERE against third party claims with respect to such content as provided in the Terms.
6.4.5 HERE is committed to supporting every Partner to optimize the returns from their partnership with HERE. Therefore, for every HERE Partner a small amount of net revenue will be set aside in a general marketing fund to be used to activate joint solutions in the market and to increase the overall enablement and activation of our Partners based on certain requirements.
7. INNOVATION DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
7.1 If Partner is a system integrator or a consultancy company, it may refer potential new end customer opportunities to HERE through the “Innovation Development Program Form” provided by HERE. Upon receiving the Innovation Development Program Form, HERE shall send a confirmation e-mail to the referred customer’s email address indicated in the form, to inform them that the submission has been received. HERE shall be responsible for the sales process subject to the Parties’ continued good-faith cooperation.
7.2 HERE shall pay to Partner an innovation development fee of 15% of the First Year Net Revenue of the Qualified End Customer Opportunity.
7.2.1 “Qualified End Customer Opportunity” means an end customer opportunity:
a. which is approved by HERE;
b. of which HERE has no record in connection with HERE’s products or services and which is not the subject of any contractual relations or ongoing negotiations or any discussions between HERE and the respective end customer about the licensing of HERE products and services;
c. for which, within ninety (90) days of being referred by Partner and at the respective end customer’s own discretion, without receiving any monetary or other incentive from Partner, a contract between HERE and the respective end customer about at least one annual subscription for a HERE product or service is closed; and
d. for which, within one hundred and twenty (120) days of being referred by Partner, the respective end customer has fully paid at least one invoice from HERE with respect to a HERE product or services.
On a case-by-case basis, the Parties may mutually agree in writing (email sufficing) to waive or extend the ninety-day (90-day) time limit for an end customer opportunity.
7.2.2 “First Year Net Revenue” means the license fees invoiced to and paid with respect to the Qualified End Customer Opportunity by the respective end customer to HERE for the 12 month period starting on the effective date of the qualified end customer’s first subscription, net of any discounts, taxes payable and subsequent refunds not due to HERE’s invoicing error or breach, and not including fees for support, implementation, customization, training, consulting or other professional services, or third-party products or services. For the avoidance of doubt, if the Qualified End Customer Opportunity relates to a multi-year subscription, innovation development fees will still be based only on the First Year Net Revenue, not on any revenue covering any period thereafter.
7.2.3 HERE will pay the innovation development fee to Partner within ninety (90) days of the anniversary of the effective date of the contract between HERE and the end customer for the Qualified End Customer Opportunity.
7.3 If multiple Partners submit potential end customer opportunities that result in a single opportunity, only the first submission entitles to innovation development fees.
7.4 Partner shall be responsible for payment of all taxes, duties, governmental charges, and other like charges levied on the innovation development fees, and Partner shall indemnify, defend, and hold HERE harmless from and against any claims arising out or relating to all charges emanating from HERE’s payment of innovation development fees.
7.5 In submitting personal data to HERE in connection with this innovation development program or another lead sharing initiative, Partner will comply with all applicable laws governing Partner’s collection, storage, processing, use and transfer of such information. Partner warrants that it has provided all appropriate notices to data subjects and ensured all appropriate legal requirements to transfer data to HERE and allow its processing according to the terms of the Agreement. For avoidance of doubt, Partner shall have ensured all appropriate legal requirements, to the extent required by applicable law, for HERE to be able to contact the individual to whom the personal data relates. Partner authorizes HERE to process such data as reasonably required to exercise HERE’s rights and perform HERE’s obligations under the Agreement; Partner acknowledges that HERE may be required to provide personally identifiable information to third parties to comply with legally mandated reporting, disclosure, or other legal process requirements.
7.6 For the avoidance of doubt, if Partner solely refers potential end customers to HERE and does not license HERE products or services, the provisions exclusively related to such licensing do not apply.
8. LEAD INFORMATION
8.1 Lead Information.
8.1.1 The Parties agree that all information HERE provides to Partner that describes or identifies sales leads (e.g., names, contact information, and information about leads’ interest in HERE products and/or services) (“Sales Leads”) remains the sole property of HERE and is HERE Confidential Information.

8.1.7 Partner will ensure that its employees and contractors handling HERE’s Confidential Information received training on how to appropriately handle confidential information and to detect and report information security incidents.
8.1.8 To the extent that HERE’s Confidential Information identifies, describes, or otherwise relates to individuals (personal information), Partner agrees to: (a) comply at all times with applicable data protection laws, including but not limited to, laws governing telemarketing and the distribution of commercial text and email messages; (b) indemnify HERE against claims alleging that HERE is liable for Partner’s security incidents involving personal information; (c) provide individual leads with the opportunity to access their personal information and to have it corrected or removed from Partner’s systems; (d) track requests by individual leads to opt out of further communication from HERE and provide information about opt outs to HERE; and (e) without undue delay notify HERE using the procedure defined in section d) of any actual or reasonably suspected data breaches, data security incidents, complaints of data subjects, objections or requests by regulators, and breaches of the Terms or any applicable laws or regulations.
8.1.9 Where Partner engages third parties to perform any of its obligations, Partner will enter into written agreements that require the third parties to: (a) comply with the confidentiality provisions of this agreement; (b) to employ safeguards to protect HERE Confidential Information that are at least as robust as those described herein; and (c) ensure, in coordination with HERE, an adequate level of protection for personal information within the meaning of applicable data protection law for Partner’s subcontractor, such as by having the subcontractor sign a data processing agreement based on the HERE Controller to Processor Data Transfer Agreement with HERE Global B.V. as data exporter and the subcontractor as data importer unless an adequate level of data protection is already ensured by applicable law or by other means.
8.1.10 If the Agreement is with HERE Europe B.V., and Partner is located outside the EU/EEA and not in a country which is found by a decision of the EU Commission to ensure an adequate level of data protection (https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/data-transfers-o...), HERE and Partner agree, in addition to the rights and obligations herein, to enter into a HERE Controller to Processor Data Transfer Agreement separate from these Terms. HERE Controller to Processor Data Transfer Agreement must be in writing and executed by both Parties.
8.1.11 Partner shall provide HERE with feedback with respect to Partner’s use of the information received from HERE, in particular with respect to the number of generated sales qualified leads (SQLs), quote resulted from this, the average opportunity size for the corresponding end customer opportunity, if this metric is known, the average conversion rate from these leads into opportunities, when this metric is known as well as the average sales cycle length for the relevant opportunity, industry or target when appropriate. Such information from Partner shall not include any personal data of third parties.
