NCR Silver Merchant Agreement
NCR SILVER MERCHANT AGREEMENT
Last Updated 4 April 2018
This Agreement between you and NCR Australia Pty Ltd (“NCR”) governs your use of the NCR SilverTM Software as a Service suite of applications (“Service”), including the user application software as may be updated and any updated version that NCR provides to you in connection with your use of the Service (“Software”) and your purchase of any related hardware from NCR (“Hardware”) or from an authorised NCR reseller (“Reseller”) for use with the Service (together, “Products”). The additional terms stated in the attached Exhibits and at the NCR Silver web site where you registered and activated your subscription to the Service (“Web Site”) and the back office account administration portal NCR provides to you as part of the Service (“NCR Silver Account Portal”), including the Merchant Billing Terms and Hardware Return and Refund Policy as may be varied from time to time (“Billing Terms”), are incorporated by reference.
If you purchase Products through a Reseller, then the pricing, invoicing and credit terms between you and the Reseller will apply to your financial obligations to the Reseller for the Products.
Updates to this Agreement or any of the additional terms referenced above will be effective 30 days after they are published on the Web Site or the NCR Silver Account Portal; you may elect not to accept an update by canceling your subscription to the Service.
1. The Service
1.1 Subject to your compliance with this Agreement and your timely meeting of the financial terms, including payment of the applicable subscription fees and charges stated on the Web Site or those you agreed to in writing with NCR or with a Reseller, NCR authorises you to access the Service for your internal use on your own behalf and not for the benefit of any third party. This access right is non-exclusive and non-transferable and will end when this Agreement expires, is terminated or cancelled. NCR may cancel this Agreement and the Service in accordance with the terms set forth in the Billing Terms even if you purchase Products through a Reseller.
1.2 The Service will be available to you (subject to clause 1.1) 24 hours per day via Internet access, other than for interruptions due to service maintenance and upgrades, system failure, system backup and recovery, and for causes beyond NCR’s control. In order to maintain reasonable production data storage requirements and to ensure proper performance of the Service, NCR may implement, in its sole discretion, limited data retention policies and procedures including periodic data purging of the hardware, software, or other systems NCR uses to provide the Service.
1.3 NCR may update the Service at any time for performance, usability, security, or other reasons. Where circumstances reasonably permit, NCR will provide you prior written notice of changes that it deems likely to require substantial action on your part. At NCR’s request, you will provide reasonable access to your systems and personnel as required to implement changes. Updates to the Service may change user interfaces, features, procedures, configuration, and user documentation; utilising the Service following an update may require you to (i) download a new version or release of the relevant Software from the Apple App StoreSM, or (ii) upgrade or modify your systems at your own cost.
1.4 If you register for a free trial of the Service through the Web Site, NCR will make the Service available to you on a trial basis at no charge to you until the earlier of the end of the trial period stated on the Web Site, or the start date of your subscription to the Service. During the trial period the Service is provided (subject to applicable laws and clauses 7.1 to 7.3) on an “as is” basis and without an express warranty of fitness for purpose or acceptable quality; NCR may suspend, limit, or cancel the Service provided on a free trial basis for any reason at any time without notice; and (subject to applicable laws and clauses 7.1 to 7.3) NCR will not be liable to you for damages of any kind related to your access or use of the Service. Unless you subscribe to the Service before the end of the trial period, all of your sales and inventory or other data that resides within the Service will not be accessible to you after the trial period ends.
1.5 You may purchase available Hardware from NCR for use with the Service at the per unit pricing stated on the Web Site or the NCR Silver Account Portal. Title and Risk of loss to Hardware shall pass to you when NCR places it with a carrier for shipment to you, freight prepaid.
1.6 Depending on your Service configuration, and unless you purchase applicable Hardware from NCR, you will be required to provide your own mobile or hardware devices, servers or wireless network hardware (“Customer Provided Hardware”) and to download and install the relevant Software on such Customer Provided Hardware. The Software is licensed to you subject to any terms and conditions presented when you downloaded it from a source authorised by NCR, as well as those contained in this Agreement. If there is a conflict, the provisions in this Agreement will prevail. You are licensed to use the Software only with the Service, and your licence will end when your subscription to the Service ends. The Software is copyrighted and licensed, not sold, and is NCR’s confidential and unpublished information. You will retain any copyright notices and proprietary legends on all copies of the Software and any media on which it is delivered. Any attempt to transfer the Software is void and will automatically cause your licence and rights of use of the Service to end.
1.7 You are licensed to possess and use only the object code form of the Software. Except as this Agreement expressly permits and subject to applicable laws, you may not: (a) use, copy, modify, publish, or display the Software; or (b) disclose, rent, loan, or transfer it to any other person. You may make one archival copy of the Software for backup purposes only. You may not reverse engineer the Software or derive a source code equivalent of it other than as authorised by statute. You are not licensed to use the Software in conjunction with software or hardware other than that authorised by NCR, and NCR does not warrant that the Service will be compatible with any Customer Provided Hardware. Use of any Customer Provided Hardware that has been modified contrary to the manufacturer’s specifications or guidelines, including modifications that disable hardware or software controls (e.g., “jailbreaking”), is expressly prohibited, and your use of such Customer Provided Hardware will entitle NCR to terminate this Agreement and your access to the Service immediately, without further obligation to you. Your licence will automatically end if you fail to comply with any part of this Agreement. When your licence ends, you will immediately stop using and uninstall the Software (as may be relevant) and will destroy all copies unless NCR directs otherwise.
1.8 NCR or a Reseller may invite you to participate in a NCR managed controlled deployment program of new versions, features or functions NCR is testing in connection with the Products or other products prior to their general market availability (“Beta Products”). If you participate in a controlled deployment program, NCR or a Reseller will make the Beta Products available to you for a limited period of time for testing and evaluation purposes. Your participation in a controlled deployment program is voluntary, and while NCR may not charge you any fees to participate, you will be required to provide reasonable feedback concerning your use of the Beta Products, including errors, deficiencies, problems or recommendations to modify. All feedback you provide to NCR or the Reseller will be deemed Ideas (as defined below). Beta Products are provided (subject to applicable laws and clauses 7.1 to 7.3) on an “as is” basis and without an express warranty of any kind; NCR may suspend, limit, or cancel any controlled deployment program for any reason at any time without notice, and (subject to applicable laws and clauses 7.1 to 7.3) NCR will not be liable to you for damages of any kind related to your access or use of the Beta Products. The Service and the Software provided as part of the Beta Products will not be considered generally released or covered under the warranty described in clause 5 until you commence paying for a subscription to the Service with NCR or a Reseller. You acknowledge that any sales and inventory or other data that resides within the Service may not be accessible to you after the limited beta period ends.
1.9 NCR or a Reseller may invite you to or you may choose to submit comments or ideas about the Products, including without limitation about how to improve them or our other products (“Ideas”). By submitting any Idea, you acknowledge that your disclosure is gratuitous, unsolicited, and without restriction; that it will not place NCR under any fiduciary or other obligation; and that NCR is free to use the Ideas without any additional compensation to you, or to disclose the Idea on a non-confidential basis or otherwise to anyone. You further acknowledge that, by acceptance of your submission, NCR does not waive any rights to use similar or related ideas previously known to NCR, or developed by its employees, or obtained from sources other than you.

4.3 Customer Data will remain your property. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, NCR will not disclose Customer Data to any third party without your consent, but you acknowledge that Customer Data and your Confidential Information may be subject to regulation and examination by auditors and regulatory agencies, and NCR may disclose it to them upon their request.

NCR will have the sole right to select the legal practitioner. You may, at your sole expense, engage an additional legal practitioner of your choosing for purposes of conferring with NCR’s legal practitioner.

6.4 If an intellectual property infringement allegation is brought or threatened against a purchased Product, or NCR believes that such an allegation may be brought or threatened, NCR may obtain a licence for the Product; modify the Product; or replace the Product with a product having substantially the same functionality. If NCR in its discretion determines that none of the foregoing is available on a reasonable basis, upon NCR’s written notice to you: (a) NCR may cease delivering the affected Products and refund any amount that you have pre-paid for any such Products not yet delivered; and (b) you will promptly return all of the affected Software or Hardware to NCR, and NCR will refund the price you paid NCR for that Software or Hardware, less depreciation on a 5 year straight-line basis.
