2. PARTNER CERTIFICATION LEVEL AND DISCOUNT
2.1. The Partner Certification Program benefits and requirements are posted in the HERE Partner Portal.

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 twelve (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 1 to December 31) 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

2.4.2 The corresponding Partner Certification Discount will apply as of March 1 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 will be applied.

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.

6.4.1. HERE may provide Partner with marketing materials that Partner may use for the marketing of HERE Materials or Applications.

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.

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.
6.6. HERE is committed to supporting every Partner to optimize the returns from their partnership with HERE.

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.

c. 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. 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 90- day time limit for an end customer opportunity.
7.4. “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 twelve (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.

7.6. If multiple Partners submit potential end customer opportunities that result in a single opportunity, only the first submission entitles to innovation development fees.
7.7. 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.

In submitting personal data to HERE in connection with this innovation development program or another lead sharing initiative, Partner shall comply with all applicable laws governing Partner’s collection, storage, processing, use, and transfer of such information.

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 these Terms; 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.
7.9. 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

8.7. Partner shall ensure that its employees and contractors handling HERE’s Confidential Information receive training on how to appropriately handle confidential information and to detect and report information security incidents.
8.8.

8.9. If Partner engages third parties to perform any of its obligations, Partner shall enter into written agreements that require the third parties to: (a) comply with the confidentiality provisions of these Terms; (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.
8.10. If these Terms are 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.
8.11. 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.
