The Development Services Provider agrees to provide any declarations and sign any documents reasonably necessary to effect such assignment to the Development Services Recipient. To the extent the foregoing assignment is ineffective for any reason, the Development Services Provider hereby grants to the Development Services Recipient an exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, world-wide, royalty-free, fully paid up, transferable and unrestricted (in terms of time and substance) right to use, sell, duplicate, modify, process, translate and distribute such Development Services Intellectual Property Rights, including in the form of leasing or renting out, and to transfer these rights to use the work results to any third party.

The Development Services Recipient herewith accepts this assignment and this granting of rights in the Development Services Intellectual Property Rights.
(2)The Development Services Provider expressly waives the right to be identified as the author of the Development Services Intellectual Property Rights. The Development Services Provider will secure by respective agreements with its employees that the assignment and granting of Development Services Intellectual Property Rights pursuant to Section 2.10(a) and the waiver pursuant to Section 2.10(b) will not be hindered or prevented by, nor be in conflict with, proprietary rights of the Development Services Provider’s Employees.

(5)Development Services Provider Indemnification.
(i)The Development Services Provider agrees to defend or at its option settle, at its own cost and expense, the Development Services Recipient against any and all claims of third parties against the Development Services Recipient to the extent alleging that the Development Services Recipient’s use of the Development Services Intellectual Property Rights as provided by the Development Services Provider and as authorized by this Agreement infringes such third parties’ intellectual property rights. The Development Services Provider shall indemnify and hold harmless against any final judgment entered on such claim or in settlement thereof.
(ii)The Parties shall promptly inform each other in case either of them becomes aware of a third party asserting an infringement of proprietary rights by the use of Development Services Intellectual Property Rights as authorized by this Agreement.
(iii)The Development Services Provider may, at is sole option and without limiting its indemnification obligations hereunder, either exchange or modify the Development Services Intellectual Property Rights in a manner that it no longer infringes third-party intellectual property rights, without materially degrading its functionality, or procure for the Development Services Recipient the right to continue the use of the Development Services Intellectual Property Rights.
(6)The terms of this Section 2.10 shall survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement.
SERVICE COSTS; OTHER CHARGES
Section i.Service Costs
(1)Services Performed by Employees of the Providing Party. Except (x) for SAP Services that the Parties mutually agree shall be provided and charged pursuant to an SLA entered into pursuant to Section 3.01(b), or (y) as otherwise provided in the applicable Schedule for the applicable Service, each Service (including Additional Services, unless otherwise mutually agreed by the Parties prior to the provision of such Additional Services) shall be provided at a fee or price calculated as follows:
(i)For Services (“Consulting Services”) performed by consultants, instructors and other Employees who have an internal or external billing rate (“Billable Employees”), or for other Services that consist of a billable offering with a defined selling price on an external price list, such as training services (“Billable Offerings”), such Consulting Services shall be charged at the Average Realized Market Rate (“ARMR”) determined and adjusted by the providing Party pursuant to Section 3.01(a)(iii) for each Billable Employee who renders Consulting Services or for each Billable Offering. To the extent any Billable Employee does not have an ARMR, the lowest consulting fee rate determined by such Party for such Billable Employee shall be used.
(ii)For all other Services (“Other Services”), unless a different cost methodology or markup rate is specified on the applicable Schedule for a particular Other Service, such Other Services shall be charged at the providing Party’s cost (including assessments for administration, information technology and facilities) (“Cost”) as determined by the providing Party, plus a markup rate of 6%. If any Other Services are performed by Billable Employees, the price for the portion of such Other Services performed by Billable Employees shall be determined as if such services were Consulting Services as provided above. The providing Party shall not charge for any Other Services that are provided primarily for the benefit of the providing Party.
(iii)ARMR and Cost shall be calculated by the providing Party in a manner consistent with how ARMR and Cost are calculated by SAP for the applicable job types or other measurement criteria in the applicable locations across SAP’s business units. SAP shall provide Qualtrics with sufficient information regarding how ARMR and Cost are calculated by SAP in order to enable Qualtrics to calculate ARMR and Cost pursuant to this Agreement. ARMR shall be subject to an annual adjustment process whereby at the end of each year and no later than the end of SAP’s year-end closing process, the providing Party shall recalculate the amounts charged to the receiving Party for such year based on the ARMR as calculated by the providing Party for such year, and shall either invoice the receiving Party for any shortfall in the event such recalculation results in the receiving Party having paid less than the amount owed for such year or credit the receiving Party for any excess in the event such recalculation results in the receiving Party having paid more than the amount owed for such year.
(2)SAP Services Performed Pursuant to an SLA. The parties may mutually agree that certain SAP Services shall be provided and charged by an SAP Entity pursuant to a separate Shared Services Agreement and Service Level Agreement (each, together with all
schedules, exhibits and appendices thereto, an “SLA”) to be entered into between an SAP Entity (any SAP Entity entering into an SLA, a “Service Center”) and a Qualtrics Entity. To the extent that any SAP Services are provided by or on behalf of a Service Center pursuant to an SLA, such SLA shall constitute a Schedule to this Agreement and such SAP Services shall be provided pursuant to, and shall be subject to the terms and conditions of, any such SLA with the same effect as if such SLA were a Schedule to this Agreement.
(3)Third Party Service Providers. Services performed by third party service providers or subcontractors directly to or for the benefit of the receiving party that are billed to the providing Party rather than being billed directly to the receiving Party shall be charged at the price charged by such third party service provider or subcontractor without any markup, unless otherwise specified on the applicable Schedule for such Other Services.
(4)Out-of-Pocket Costs. In addition to the amounts payable pursuant to Section 3.01(a), (b) or (c), in the event that a Party providing Services incurs reasonable and documented out-of-pocket expenses in connection with the provision of any Service, including license fees and payments, reasonable travel costs and expenses, shipping and transportation costs and other fees or expenses, but excluding payments made to Employees of such Party, payments to third party service providers or subcontractors, or other payments included in the calculation of Costs (such included expenses, collectively, “Out-of-Pocket Costs”), the Party receiving such Service shall reimburse the Party providing such Service for all such Out-of-Pocket Costs in accordance with the invoicing procedures set forth in Section 3.02, without any markup. Neither Party shall incur any individual or series of related Out-of-Pocket Costs (excluding license fees and payments and duties and non-recoverable taxes) for any individual Service in excess of $5,000 in any billing period without the prior written approval of the Party receiving Services unless such Out-of-Pocket Costs are approved on the applicable Schedule for such Services.
(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, “Services Taxes”), shall be borne by the Party (or its Subsidiary) receiving Services hereunder. If any Services Tax is required to be withheld or deducted from any payment under this Agreement, the Party (or its Subsidiary) receiving Services will increase the amount payable under this Agreement as shall ensure that after such withholding or deduction, the Party (or its Subsidiary) providing Services receives an amount equal to the amount required to be paid hereunder.
(ii)Income Taxes will be borne by the Party (or its Subsidiary) providing Services. If the Party (or its Subsidiary) receiving Services is required to withhold any Taxes (other than Services Taxes) from any payment to the Party (or its Subsidiary) providing Services under this Agreement, the Party (or its Subsidiary) receiving Services hereunder shall be entitled to withhold or deduct such Taxes from the gross amount to be paid. However, the Party (or its Subsidiary) receiving Services shall cooperate with the
Party (or its Subsidiary) providing Services to reduce any such withholding Tax payable pursuant to applicable law or an income tax treaty. The Party (or its Subsidiary) receiving Services hereunder will in the case of any withholding Tax (including withholding Taxes described under Section 3.01(e)(ii)) provide to the Party (or its Subsidiary) providing Services a receipt from the relevant tax authority to which such withholding Tax has been paid.
(iii)Each Party shall cooperate with each other Party and take any reasonably requested action which does not cause such first Party to incur any cost or inconvenience (other than de minimis costs or inconveniences) in order to minimize any Services Taxes imposed on the sale of the Services (or other goods and services sold pursuant to this Agreement), 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 (i) the reporting of any Services Taxes payable pursuant to this Agreement, (ii) any audit relating to any Services Taxes payable pursuant to this Agreement or (iii) any assessment, refund, claim or proceeding relating to any such Services Taxes.
(iv)Except as otherwise provided in any SLA, this Section 3.01(e) shall be applicable to any SAP Service provided pursuant to an SLA.
(1)Unless otherwise set forth on a Schedule (or otherwise mutually agreed to by the Parties in writing), charges for Services shall be invoiced quarterly in arrears by each Party (or its Subsidiary) providing or procuring such Services following the end of a quarter; provided that charges for Consulting Services shall be invoiced monthly in arrears by each Party (or its Subsidiary) providing or procuring such Consulting Services following the end of a month. The invoice shall set forth in reasonable detail (which shall be sufficient to allow the receiving Party’s internal controlling or financial oversight personnel or its certified public accountants to verify independently the correctness of the invoice) for the period covered by such invoice (i) the Services rendered, (ii) the aggregate amount charged for each type of Service provided, (iii) the calculations for such amount charged, including billing rates, hours worked, ARMR, and Cost, as applicable, and (iv) such additional information as the Party receiving the invoice may reasonably request. Each invoice shall be directed to the appropriate Services Manager of the Party to receive the invoice or such other individual designated in writing from time to time by such Services Manager. Unless otherwise agreed in writing between the Parties, all payments made pursuant to an invoice shall, in the case of payments to a Qualtrics Entity, unless otherwise agreed in writing, be made in U.S. dollars and, in the case of payments to a SAP Entity, be made in the local or functional currency of such SAP Entity. The Parties shall provide documentation supporting any amounts invoiced pursuant to this Section 3.02 as the Party receiving the invoice may from time to time reasonably request.
(2)Each invoice shall be payable within sixty (60) days after receipt; provided that if such Party, in good faith, disputes any invoiced charge, payment of such charge may be made only after mutual resolution of such dispute. Each Party agrees to notify the Party sending the invoice promptly, and in no event later than thirty (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 3.02(a). The applicable Parties shall seek to resolve all such disputes expeditiously and in good faith. Interest shall be charged on amounts overdue. The interest rate is based on the official interbank offered rate (1m-LIBOR) or a similar official reference rate of the relevant currency prevailing the first day of the month in which the interest will be calculated plus a margin of 100 basis points (1.00%) per annum. The interest will be calculated and charged on a monthly basis.
(3)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 Services provided hereunder. Each Party shall provide documentation supporting any amounts invoiced pursuant to this Section 3.02 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.
(4)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.
