Comdata will provide Customer with at least thirty (30) days prior notice (unless a shorter period of time is required by MasterCard, Issuing Bank or Applicable law) of any such changes, unless such changes affect only Customer, in which case Comdata will provide Customer with at least one hundred eighty (180) days prior written notice. Retention or use of the Account after the date of any such change will constitute acceptance of the new terms. If Customer does not agree to any such change, Customer may terminate this Agreement by notifying Comdata before the date of the change, returning all Cards to Comdata or destroying all Cards and paying what is owed under the terms of this Agreement. This Agreement may

be terminated in the event of a default under Section 8 below, and immediately in the event that MasterCard prohibits the Service, the Issuing Bank ceases to be a network member or the Issuing Bank ceases to be the Card issuer, provided that Comdata shall endeavor to provide Customer with advance notice of any such event.

Customer must notify Comdata in writing of any disputed item on Customer’s billing statement within sixty (60) days from the date of the billing statement, or it will be deemed undisputed and accepted by Customer. Unless required by law, Comdata is not responsible for any problem Customer may have with any goods or services charged on the Account. If Customer has a dispute with a merchant, Customer must pay Comdata and attempt to resolve the dispute with the merchant prior to sending the dispute to Comdata. If Customer is unsuccessful in resolving the dispute directly with the merchant, Comdata will attempt to process the dispute through MasterCard subject to the MasterCard rules, as they may be changed from time to time in MasterCard’s sole discretion. Comdata is not responsible if any merchant refuses to honor Cards. Comdata shall be responsible for all payment items disputed by Customer to the extent caused by Comdata’s processing errors, breach of this Agreement, negligence or intentional misconduct.

Comdata and Customer agree and covenant to each other that they shall not, during the performance of this Agreement or at any time after the termination or expiration hereof, use or disclose to any third party, other than during the proper performance of their duties hereunder and subject to commercially reasonable obligations of confidentiality, the confidential and proprietary information of the other party hereto (“Confidential Information”), including but not limited to the rates, terms and conditions of this Agreement; technical information; financial information; transaction information; or any of the procedures, practices or confidential dealings of the other party hereto. Confidential Information that is not marked as such is nonetheless subject to this provision if a reasonable person would consider the information to be confidential or proprietary given the nature or type of information or circumstances of disclosure. Confidential Information does not include information that: (i) is or becomes a part of the public domain without the fault of the receiving party; (ii) is provided to the receiving party by a third party on a non-confidential basis; or (iii) is independently developed by the receiving party without the benefit of the Confidential Information.

Customer acknowledges and agrees that the application software developed, utilized and maintained by Comdata, the internal hardware utilized by Comdata, the internal operating procedures employed by Comdata, technical information, such as file record layouts, and transaction information, including without limitation Comdata card numbers and any data or information gathered by Comdata, whether at the point-of-sale or otherwise, are solely Comdata’s Confidential Information and as such are the exclusive and proprietary property of Comdata. Comdata acknowledges that all information disclosed by Customer concerning its technology; security; business, computing and operational processes; and financials are Customer’s Confidential Information and as between Customer and Comdata, constitute the sole and exclusive property of Customer. Comdata further acknowledges that Customer’s Confidential Information also includes information concerning its customers and such information is expressly subject to these obligations of confidentiality. For clarification, vendor/acceptor/supplier information is not Customer’s Confidential Information provided that it is not identified with any Client obtaining Cards. The BINs (Bank Identification Numbers) assigned to the Cards are the property of the Issuing Bank. Promptly upon expiration or termination of this Agreement, the receiving party shall return or destroy all of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information and any materials in which it is embodied except as may be required for the receiving party to comply with applicable law and/or its compliance obligations (including compliance obligations imposed by its partner banks or Networks), subject to these ongoing obligations of confidentiality; and further provided that, Confidential Information or materials containing Confidential Information in electronic form within the receiving party’s computing environment may be retained, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, until destroyed in the ordinary course of business in accordance with the receiving party’s document retention and destruction policies. Except as otherwise required herein, these obligations of confidentiality shall survive expiration or termination of the Agreement for a period of five (5) years or for such longer period as may be permitted or required by applicable law. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, any cardholder records (including cardholder transactional data) are records of the Issuing Bank and Customer may not place restrictions/requirements herein on their use, retention, disclosure, destruction or deletion on the Issuing Bank or its service providers, including Comdata. Any cardholder records which are shared with Customer shall remain confidential after the termination/expiration of this Agreement. Each party will promptly notify the other party in the event there is an unauthorized disclosure of cardholder records in violation of this Agreement.

Comdata shall at all times maintain administrative, physical and technical safeguards consistent with industry standards for the confidentiality, integrity, security, availability, retention and disposal of all data of Customer. Comdata agrees to provide to Customer upon request, but not more than once annually, the most recent PCI-DSS attestation of compliance and SOC 2 Type II audit report and to complete a vendor questionnaire to enable Customer to conduct its standard vendor due diligence.

Customer may not transfer or assign this Agreement without the prior written consent of Comdata, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. In the event that Comdata does not consent to any transfer or assignment of this Agreement by Customer on the same terms and conditions, then Customer, at its option, may terminate the Agreement, without penalty on written notice to Comdata and shall pay Comdata the Service Fees due and owing for Services provided up to the date of termination. If Comdata does not consent to such transfer or assignment because the intended assignee is either (i) a competitor to Comdata or (ii) a business that the Issuing Bank will not work with because it is a prohibited business for such bank , and Customer elects to terminate the Agreement, then Customer agrees to pay Comdata an amount equal to (i) the Comdata Service Fee set forth on the Cover page multiplied by the Minimum Committed Volume not met for the then current year plus (ii) for each year remaining in the term of the Agreement, the Comdata Service Fee set forth on the Cover page multiplied by the Minimum Committed Volume for such year.
