The legal entity identified in the associated Statement of Work (“Client”) has engaged COPA90 to produce and/or distribute certain content, as more particularly described in the Statement of Work.
These General Terms (including Schedule 1 attached hereto), along with the Statement of Work (including any schedules and exhibits attached thereto), form an agreement between COPA90 and Client, as of the effective date of the Statement of Work (“Agreement”). In the event of a conflict between these General Terms and the terms of a Statement of Work, the terms of the Statement of Work shall control.
In consideration of the mutual promises contained in this Agreement and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are acknowledged by the parties, the parties agree as follows:
1. SERVICES. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, COPA90 will perform the services identified in the Statement of Work (“Services”), which may include the creation and delivery of deliverables identified in the Statement of Work (“Deliverables”), in accordance with the timeline specified in the Statement of Work.
(a) Third Party Materials.
(i) Except as set forth in Section 1(a)(ii) below, COPA90 is responsible for obtaining (and paying for) all rights, permissions, consents or licenses necessary to use Third Party Materials (defined in Section 1(a)(iii) below) as permitted in the Statement of Work (“COPA90-Provided Third Party Materials”); it being understood and agreed that: (i) COPA90 will source all music from COPA90’s music library and Client acknowledges that such music is cleared for use solely on digital media platforms; and (ii) if music sourced from COPA90’s music library is incorporated in any Deliverable(s) intended for distribution via one or more platforms or channels other than digital media platforms/channels (e.g., broadcast television, cable television), Client is responsible for obtaining all such rights, permissions, consents or licenses necessary for such distribution. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party shall be responsible for securing and paying for any music public performance rights applicable to the distribution of Deliverables on its owned, branded or controlled platforms/channels.
(ii) Any Third Party Materials Client is responsible for obtaining (and paying for) the rights, permissions, consents or licenses necessary to use as permitted in the Statement of Work (“Client-Provided Third Party Materials”) shall be specified in the Statement of Work.
(iii) As used herein, “Third Party Materials” means any content or materials owned or controlled by a third party (including, without limitation, trademarks/logos/branding, names/likenesses/voices/biographical information of players/athletes, coaches and/or other talent, music, photographs, imagery and footage) that is incorporated in, or otherwise used in connection with, any Deliverables.
(b) Approvals; Changes to Deliverables.

Requests for changes to any Deliverable shall not exceed one (1) round of feedback and revisions.
(c) Credit. COPA90 shall receive credit on all Deliverables, the nature, size and placement of which shall be mutually agreed upon by the parties, depending on the Deliverable.
(d) Prizes. Client is responsible for sourcing or providing any prize(s) or gift(s) offered to the public or entrants to a sweepstakes, contest or other promotion operated by COPA90 on Client’s behalf as part of the Services.
(e) Client Dependencies. Client is responsible for obtaining all permissions necessary for COPA90 to provide the Services. Client will cooperate in all matters relating to the Services reasonably required by COPA90 and comply with any Client performance obligations set out in the Statement of Work (including, without limitation, providing to COPA90, in a timely manner, Client Materials (as defined in Section 5(a) below)). In performing the Services, COPA90 will be relying on the accuracy and completeness of Client Materials and any other materials and information it receives from or on behalf of Client. If Client fails to perform its payment and/or other obligations under this Agreement in a timely manner, then to the extent that such delay or failure prevents COPA90 from performing any Services and/or providing any Deliverables in accordance with this Agreement, COPA90 will be relieved of its obligations to Client and COPA90 shall not be liable for any damages incurred by Client as a result thereof.
(f) Termination of Services for Convenience. Client may at any time terminate for convenience (i.e., without cause) Services, in whole or in part, under a Statement of Work, upon written notice to COPA90 specifying the extent to which such Services are terminated and the date such termination becomes effective. In such event, Client will pay all Fees and Expenses (each, as defined in Section 3 below) to COPA90 through the effective date of termination and reimburse COPA90 for any third party charges incurred by COPA90 or to which COPA90 is committed in connection with such Services; provided that, COPA90 will use reasonable efforts to mitigate any such third party charges.
2. TERM. The term of this Agreement commences as of the effective date of the Statement of Work and continues in effect until the completion of the Services, unless earlier terminated in accordance herewith (“Term”).
(a) In consideration of the provision of Services under this Agreement, Client shall pay COPA90 the fees set out in the Statement of Work (“Fees”) and reimburse COPA90 additional expenses incurred by it in connection with the Services that have not already been budgeted for in the Fees (“Expenses”); provided that, such Expenses have either been approved in advance by Client in writing or, where applicable, are in accordance with Client’s expense reimbursement policy provided to COPA90. Client will pay all Fees and Expenses within thirty (30) days from its receipt of the relevant invoice (unless otherwise stated in the Statement of Work).
(b) All Fees and Expenses under this Agreement are payable in US Dollars and (unless otherwise stated in the invoice) are exclusive of any applicable taxes, duties, fees and other assessments of whatever nature imposed by governmental authorities, which shall be the sole responsibility of Client (to the extent COPA90 is required to pay any such taxes, duties, fees or assessments, Client shall reimburse COPA90 therefor).
(c) If COPA90 does not receive any payment by its due date, COPA90 may assess a late payment charge on the unpaid amount at the rate of three percent (3%) per month or the highest rate allowed under applicable law, whichever is more. Client shall reimburse COPA90 for all reasonable costs, including attorneys’ fees and expenses, related to any proceedings to collect any past-due amounts.
(d) If Client (acting reasonably and in good faith) has a bona fide reason to challenge the validity or accuracy of any COPA90 invoice, Client shall (i) immediately notify COPA90 in writing of the reason(s) therefor; (ii) pay the undisputed part of such invoice in accordance with this Section 3; and (iii) work promptly and in good faith with COPA90 to resolve the dispute.
(e) If Client is overdue with any payment hereunder, without prejudice to COPA90’s other rights and remedies, COPA90 may (i) suspend the performance of Services under the applicable Statement of Work on seven (7) days’ written notice to Client until COPA90 has received payment of the overdue amount, together with any accrued interest, or (ii) terminate the applicable Statement of Work immediately upon seven (7) days’ written notice to Client. In the event a surcharge is levied against COPA90 by any of its suppliers due to a late payment by COPA90 that is caused by Client’s late payment to COPA90, Client shall reimburse COPA90 the amount of the surcharge, together with any accrued interest charged by the supplier in respect of the overdue amount.

15. ASSIGNMENT. Client may not assign or delegate this Agreement or any or all of its rights or obligations under this Agreement, in whole or in part, by operation of law or otherwise, to any person or entity without COPA90’s prior written consent. For the purposes of this Agreement, any change in control, merger, consolidation, or acquisition of all or substantially all of the assets of Client shall be deemed an assignment.

This Agreement may be executed in two or more counterparts, including by electronic delivery, each of which shall be deemed to be an original, and all of which together shall constitute one and the same agreement.

(i) notifies Client of any new or replacement Sub-processors. If Client objects to the appointment of a new or replacement Sub-processor, it shall notify Client within five business days.
(ii) enters into a written contract with the Sub-processor that: provides protections or guarantees that Sub-processor considers necessary to implement appropriate technical and organisation measures in compliance with the Data Protection Legislation; and terminates automatically on termination or expiry of this SCHEDULE for any reason, and
(iii) remains liable for all acts or omissions of the Sub-processors as if they were acts or omissions of SUPPLIER (except to the extent caused or exacerbated by Client).
(g) at Client’s cost, return or destroy (as directed in writing by Client) all personal data it has in its possession and delete existing copies unless applicable law requires storage of the personal data.
(h) to the extent that SUPPLIER is required to transfer personal data pursuant to this SCHEDULE, including to the approved Sub-processors, to a territory outside of the EEA that does not have a finding of adequacy by the European Commission, the parties shall either (i) execute or procure the execution of the standard contractual clauses set out in Commission Decision of 5 February 2010 on standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data to processors established in third countries under Directive 95/46/EC (“Model Clauses”) or (ii) agree another more appropriate lawful data Transfer Mechanism exists, for example, were the Sub-processor transferee has a Privacy Shield Certification. The parties agree that if the Model Clauses (or agreed alternative mechanism) cease to exist or are no longer considered by both parties to be a lawful method of transferring personal data outside of the EEA, the parties shall have a good faith discussion and agree an alternative lawful Transfer Mechanism and SUPPLIER may cease or procure that the relevant third party cease the processing of personal data until such time as the parties have agreed an alternative transfer mechanism to enable the personal data to be transferred outside of the EEA in a compliant manner.
2.5 Client, without prejudice to its other rights or obligations, shall comply with its obligations under applicable Data Protection Legislation and shall in particular ensure that it has appropriate rights and legal basis, or other ability to process personal data and that SUPPLIER is lawfully permitted to process personal data on its behalf, and will not give SUPPLIER any instructions that would cause SUPPLIER to be in breach of the Data Protection Legislation.
