1.1 Access to the Subscription Service. OnLink grants to User the right to access or provide access to and use the Service.

User must have an Internet connection and hardware and software that is compatible with the Services.
1.2 Scope of Use. If User is a golf club or country club, the Service is for use at User’s facilities only.
1.3 Service Modifications; Interruptions. OnLink may at its sole discretion modify or change any of the features of the Service without materially affecting the functionality of the Service. OnLink may from time-to-time perform software maintenance that may cause the Service to be temporarily interrupted. Such maintenance shall be performed during non-peak hours (9:00 PM to 5:00 AM Eastern Time), to the extent that it is reasonably possible. In the event any routine maintenance will not be performed during non-peak hours, OnLink will make commercially reasonable efforts to notify User in advance of such maintenance.
2. Term and Termination
2.1 Term. The initial term of the Agreement shall be outlined as in the Software Service Agreement and shall continue for successive renewal terms of one (1) year following the end of the Initial Term (each a “Renewal Term”) unless either party provides sixty (60) days written notice to the other prior to the date of termination of the Initial Term or any then-current Renewal Term informing the other party that it does not wish to renew the Agreement. The Initial Term or any Renewal Terms are sometimes referred to herein as the “Term.”
2.2 Termination for Cause. Either party may terminate this Agreement for cause by giving the other party thirty (30) days prior written notice specifying a material breach of the other party’s obligations under this Agreement; and provided that said breach has not been cured within such thirty (30) day period, the non-defaulting party shall have the right, at its election and without prejudice to any other rights or remedies, to cancel this Agreement in whole or in part.
2.3 Termination for Convenience. User may terminate the Agreement during the Initial Term or any Renewal Term at any time for any reason or no reason. If the pricing plan selected on Attachment A includes a minimum annual commitment, then upon termination for convenience, User agrees to pay an amount equal to the minimum annual commitment minus the sum of all payments made by User during the Initial Term or current Renewal Term.
2.4 Effect of Termination. Upon the termination of this Agreement (whether pursuant to this Section 2 or for any other reason), User shall immediately (i) cease use of the Service, and (ii) pay any outstanding, amounts due to OnLink hereunder; and each party shall return to the other party all copies of such other party’s Intellectual Property and Confidential Information and certify in writing to such other party that no copies of such Intellectual Property and Confidential Information have been retained by it within ten (10) days of such termination or, if requested by the owner of the property, destroy all copies of their Intellectual Property and Confidential Information and certify in writing to the owner of the property that all copies have been destroyed.

Pricing for OnLink Services for the Initial Term is specified in Attachment A to this Agreement. If User is to be invoiced for Services provided, invoices are payable in full at the execution of this Agreement and with a received invoice, and no later than ten (10) days of invoicing. If User wishes to pay by credit card, the credit card will be charged upon execution of this Agreement.
3.2 Late Payments. If User fails to pay any Fee by the applicable due date, OnLink will have the right to: (a) assess late charges in the amount equal to the greater of one percent (1%) per month or the maximum allowable under applicable law; and/or (b) suspend access to any or all of the Service. Any such suspension or termination will not relieve User from paying any outstanding Fees plus late charges. User will be responsible for any cost associated with collecting such fees including without limitation, legal costs, reasonable attorney’s fees, court costs and collection agency fees.
3.3 Sales and Use Taxes. Sales and Use Taxes vary from state to state. User shall consult its tax advisor to determine whether Sales or Use Tax should be remitted to the appropriate taxing authority in your jurisdiction.

As between the parties, User retains all right, title and interest in and to User information in the form submitted to and used by the Service (the “User Data”), but excluding any OnLink Intellectual Property (as defined below in Section 4.2). OnLink will not distribute any materials that bear any connection to User or User Marks without the permission of User, and will not use User Data for any purpose other than providing the Service to Users.
