PROVISION OF LICENSE SERVICES AND GUARANTIES
Section 2.1Provision of Real Estate License Services. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and in consideration of the costs for Real Estate License Services described below, SAP agrees to cause the SAP Entity that owns the relevant furnished office space to provide to the Qualtrics Entities, and Qualtrics agrees to purchase from the relevant SAP Entity, the Real Estate License Services, until such Real Estate License Services are terminated in accordance with the provisions hereof.
Section 2.2Additional Real Estate License Services. In addition to the Real Estate License Services to be provided or procured by SAP in accordance with Section 2.1 and set forth on Schedule I, if requested by Qualtrics, and to the extent that SAP and Qualtrics may mutually agree in writing (including by amending any of the Schedules, providing a statement of work or any other written (including by email) evidence of a request for additional services and an acceptance of such request), SAP shall provide additional license services to Qualtrics (“Additional Real Estate License Services”). The scope of any such services, as well as the costs and other terms and conditions applicable to such services, shall be as mutually agreed by SAP and Qualtrics prior to the provision of such Additional Real Estate License Services. Qualtrics agrees to cause the relevant Qualtrics Entity to pay all amounts payable in respect of Additional Real Estate License Services to the SAP Entity that provided or procured the Additional Real Estate License Services.
Section 2.3Continuing Real Estate License Services. The Parties hereby agree that the real estate license agreements set forth on Schedule II shall remain in effect and continue following the consummation of the IPO in accordance with their terms, which terms shall govern in the event of any conflict with the terms of this Agreement.
Section 2.4Modifications. SAP may make changes from time to time in its standards and procedures for providing the Real Estate License Services; provided, however, that any such change shall also apply to SAP’s own facilities as well. If any such changes apply to Qualtrics Entities only, SAP will provide Qualtrics with 60 days’ prior written notice.
Section 2.5Guaranties. SAP and Qualtrics shall each use their reasonable efforts (to the extent practicable) to cause each SAP Entity to be removed and released in respect of all obligations under each guarantee, indemnity, surety bond, letter of credit and letter of comfort given or obtained by any SAP Entity for the benefit of any Qualtrics Entity or the Qualtrics business with respect to real estate (each, a “Guarantee”), including the Guarantee set forth on Schedule III, as soon as reasonably practicable after the IPO Date. From and after the IPO Date, Qualtrics shall indemnify, hold harmless and promptly reimburse the SAP Entities for any payments made by SAP Entities and for any and all Liabilities of the SAP Entities arising out of, or in performing, in whole or in part, any obligation in accordance with the underlying obligation under any Guarantee. Beginning on the date on which the SAP Entities hold shares of
Qualtrics common stock representing less than a majority of the votes entitled to be cast by all holders of Qualtrics common stock, if SAP continues to be a party to any Guarantee, until such time as the Guarantee is terminated, Qualtrics shall compensate SAP in accordance with the market rate based on the cost for a bank to issue a substitute guarantee, as determined by the Parties in good faith. Notwithstanding the foregoing, (a) in the event of a Change of Control that requires SAP’s approval pursuant to Article VI of Qualtrics’ Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation or Section 3.2 of the Master Transaction Agreement such that, in single transaction or series of transactions, a third party acquires Qualtrics common stock representing a majority of the votes entitled to be cast by all holders of Qualtrics common stock, it shall be a condition to the closing of such transaction(s) that any Guarantee remaining in effect at that time shall be terminated effective on or prior to the closing of such transaction(s) and in connection therewith, SAP and Qualtrics shall each use their reasonable efforts (to the extent practicable) to cause each SAP Entity to be removed and released in respect of all obligations under any such Guarantee(s) and (b) in the event of a Change of Control that does not require SAP’s approval pursuant to Article VI of Qualtrics’ Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation or Section 3.2 of the Master Transaction Agreement such that, in single transaction or series of transactions, a third party acquires Qualtrics common stock representing a majority of the votes entitled to be cast by all holders of Qualtrics common stock, it shall be a condition to the closing of such transaction(s) that any Guarantee remaining in effect at that time shall be terminated effective on or prior to the closing of such transaction(s).
LICENSE SERVICE COSTS; OTHER CHARGES
Section 3.1License Service Costs.
(a)Each License Service (other than Additional Real Estate License Services) will be provided at the price indicated on Schedule I.
(b)No later than 60 days prior to the end of the Initial Term or any Renewal Term, the Parties shall commence discussions to determine the appropriate Real Estate License Services to be provided pursuant to Schedule I in the subsequent Renewal Term based on a good faith review of the Real Estate License Services and the Qualtrics Entities’ future real estate requirements. The Parties shall use their reasonable best efforts to execute and deliver an amended Schedule I for the subsequent Renewal Term prior to the expiration of the then-current term set forth on Schedule I.
(c)Any Additional Real Estate License Services provided by SAP shall be provided at the costs set forth in Section 3.1 of the Administrative Services Agreement, unless otherwise agreed.
(d)In addition to the amounts payable pursuant to Section 3.1(a), in the event that SAP incurs pre-approved, reasonable and documented out-of-pocket expenses in connection with the provision of any License Service, including license fees and payments, reasonable travel costs and expenses, shipping and transportation costs, duties, non-recoverable taxes and other fees or expenses, but excluding payments made to employees of SAP pursuant to Section 3.1(a)
or Section 3.1(b) and payments to third party professional service providers or subcontractors (such included expenses, collectively, “Out-of-Pocket Costs”), Qualtrics shall reimburse SAP or the relevant SAP Entity, as the case may be, for all such Out-of-Pocket Costs in accordance with the invoicing procedures set forth in Section 3.2, without any markup.
(i)All applicable sales, use, value added, GST, transfer, receipts, customs duties, consumption or other similar Taxes (and any other Taxes other than income Taxes and corporation Taxes), together with any interest, penalties or amounts imposed with respect thereto (collectively, “Service Taxes”) in connection with the Real Estate License Services or Additional Real Estate License Services shall be borne by the relevant Qualtrics Entity.
(ii)Income Taxes in connection with payments under this Agreement will be borne by the relevant SAP Entity. If a Qualtrics Entity is required to withhold any Taxes (other than Service Taxes) from payment any under this Agreement, the Qualtrics Entity shall be entitled to withhold or deduct such Taxes from the gross amount to be paid. However, the Qualtrics Entity shall cooperate with the SAP Entity to reduce any such withholding Tax payable pursuant to applicable law or an income tax treaty. The Qualtrics Entity will in the case of any withholding Tax (including withholding Taxes described under Section 3.01(e)(i)) provide to the SAP Entity a receipt from the relevant tax authority to which such withholding Tax has been paid.
(iii)SAP shall cooperate with Qualtrics and take any reasonably requested action which does not cause SAP to incur any cost or inconvenience (other than de minimis costs or inconveniences) in order to minimize any Services Taxes imposed on the provision of the Real Estate License Services or Additional Real Estate License Services including providing sales and use (or value added) tax exemption certificates or other documentation necessary to support tax exemptions. Each Party agrees to provide each other Party such information and data as reasonably requested from time to time, and to fully cooperate with each other Party, in connection with (A) the reporting of any Services Taxes payable pursuant to this Agreement, (B) any audit relating to any Services Taxes payable pursuant to this Agreement or (C) any assessment, refund, claim or proceeding relating to any such Services Taxes.
(a)Unless otherwise set forth on a Schedule (or otherwise mutually agreed to by the Parties in writing), charges for Real Estate License Services shall be invoiced quarterly in arrears by SAP (or the relevant SAP Entity that provided or procuring the Real Estate License Services) within five business days prior to the end of a quarter. The invoice shall set forth in reasonable detail for the period covered by such invoice (i) the Real Estate License Services rendered, (ii) the aggregate amount charged for each applicable location, and (iii) such additional information as Qualtrics may reasonably request at least ten business days prior to the end of a quarter. Each invoice shall be directed to the Facilities Manager of Qualtrics or such other
individual designated in writing from time to time by such Facilities Manager. Unless otherwise agreed in writing between the Parties, all payments made pursuant an invoice shall be made in the local or functional currency of the SAP Entity indicated on the invoice. The Parties shall provide documentation supporting any amounts invoiced pursuant to this Section 3.2 as the Party receiving the invoice may from time to time reasonably request.
(b)Each invoice shall be payable within 60 days after receipt; provided, however, that if Qualtrics, in good faith, disputes any invoiced charge, payment of such charge may be made only after mutual resolution of such dispute. Qualtrics agrees to notify SAP promptly, and in no event later than 30 days following receipt of an invoice, of any disputed charge, listing all disputed items and providing a reasonably detailed description of each disputed item. Amounts not so disputed shall be deemed accepted and shall be paid, notwithstanding disputes on other items, within the period set forth in Section 3.2(a). The Parties shall seek to resolve all such disputes expeditiously and in good faith.
(c)During the term of this Agreement, each Party shall keep such books, records and accounts as are reasonably necessary to verify the calculation of the fees and related expense for Real Estate License Services provided hereunder. Each Party shall provide documentation supporting any amounts invoiced pursuant to this Section 3.2 as the other Party may from time to time reasonably request. Each Party shall have the right to review such books, records and accounts of the other Party at any time upon reasonable notice, and the Party requesting such review agrees to conduct any such review in a manner so as not to unreasonably interfere with the other Party’s normal business operations.
(d)Each Party hereby acknowledges and agrees that it shall have no right under this Agreement to offset any amounts owed (or to become due and owing) to another Party, whether under this Agreement or otherwise, against any other amount owed (or to become due and owing) to it by the other Party.
STANDARD OF PERFORMANCE AND INDEMNIFICATION
Section 4.1General Standard of Service. Except as otherwise agreed to in writing by the Parties or as described in this Agreement, the nature and quality applicable to the provision of the Real Estate License Services hereunder shall be substantially the same as or consistent with those which similar SAP Entities exercise or employ in providing similar services within or to any SAP Entity.

Indemnified Person pursuant to this Agreement, the transactions contemplated hereby or any SAP Indemnified Person’s actions or inactions in connection with any Real Estate License Services or such transactions, except for damages which have resulted from such SAP Indemnified Person’s breach, gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct in connection with the foregoing.

(d)None of the SAP Entities shall have any liability to any Qualtrics Entity or any other Person for failure to perform SAP’s obligations under this Agreement or otherwise, where such failure to perform similarly affects the SAP Entities receiving the same or similar services and does not have a disproportionately adverse effect on the Qualtrics Entities, taken as a whole.
(e)In addition to the foregoing, each Party agrees that, in all circumstances, it shall use commercially reasonable efforts to mitigate and otherwise minimize damages to such Party and its Subsidiaries, individually and collectively, whether direct or indirect, due to, resulting from or arising in connection with any failure by the other Party to comply fully with such Party’s obligations under this Agreement.
(a)Qualtrics agrees to indemnify and hold harmless each SAP Indemnified Person from and against any Losses arising out of or related to any claim, action or proceeding brought by a third party (collectively, “Third Party Actions”) arising out of or in connection with Real Estate License Services rendered or to be rendered by any SAP Indemnified Person pursuant to this Agreement, the transactions contemplated hereby or any SAP Indemnified
Person’s actions or inactions in connection with any such Real Estate License Services or transactions; provided, however, that Qualtrics shall not be responsible for any damages incurred by any SAP Indemnified Person that have resulted from any SAP Entity’s, or any such SAP Indemnified Person’s, breach of this Agreement or gross negligence or willful misconduct in connection with the Real Estate License Services.
(b)SAP agrees to indemnify and hold harmless each Qualtrics Indemnified Person from and against any Losses arising out of or related to any Third Party Action arising out of or in connection with any SAP Entity’s, or any such SAP Indemnified Person’s, breach of this Agreement or gross negligence or willful misconduct in connection with the Real Estate License Services .
(c)The provisions of Section 4.5 (Reductions for Insurance Proceeds and other Recoveries) and Section 4.6 (Procedures for Defense, Settlement and Indemnification of the Third Party Claims) of the Master Transaction Agreement are hereby incorporated by reference, mutatis mutandis, and shall apply to Third Party Actions. If the Master Transaction Agreement terminates or expires, the provisions of Section 4.5 (Reductions for Insurance Proceeds and other Recoveries) and Section 4.6 (Procedures for Defense, Settlement and Indemnification of the Third Party Claims) of the Master Transaction Agreement shall nevertheless continue to be effective under this Agreement and will remain in effect for the term of this Agreement.
(d)Qualtrics and SAP shall each reimburse the other for any and all Losses of SAP Indemnified Persons or Qualtrics Indemnified Persons, as applicable, arising out of or in connection with such Party’s breach of this Agreement or gross negligence or willful misconduct in connection with the Real Estate License Services, to the extent such Losses are not indemnifiable pursuant to Sections 4.3(a) or 4.3(b) above.

All rights and remedies existing under this Agreement or the Schedules attached hereto are cumulative to, and not exclusive of, any rights or remedies otherwise available.
