(b) Supplemental Services. In addition, Senpai IT Solutions may from time to time perform certain additional services on an quarter-hourly or fixed fee basis, such as customization of the Unmanaged Hosting Service at Customer's request, and other professional technical services. Supplemental Services will be performed only on Customer's advance approval and will be invoiced at Senpai IT Solutions' published rates or other rates approved in advance in writing by Customer. Senpai IT Solutions may also perform services as described in the AUP for the fees stated in the AUP as necessary to remediate problems caused by AUP violations without obtaining advance Customer consent.
The term of this Master Services Agreement begins on the Effective Date and continues for so long as any Service Order Form incorporating this Master Services Agreement is in effect. The term of each Service Order Form begins on the Service Commencement Date for that Service Order Form and continues for the period stated in that Service Order Form (the "Initial Term"). Senpai IT Solutions and Customer may agree to one or more additional terms having a fixed number of months to follow the expiration of the Initial Term (each a "Renewal Term"). If upon expiration of the Initial Term no Renewal Term has been established by agreement of the parties, the Service Order Form shall automatically renew for successive extended terms of thirty (30) days each (each an "Extended Term") until Senpai IT Solutions or Customer provides the other with three (3) days advance notice of non-renewal.

Customer agrees to pay Senpai IT Solutions' then current reinstatement fee following a suspension of service for non-payment. Senpai IT Solutions may charge interest on amounts that are over due by ten (10) days or more at the lesser of 3% per month. Customer agrees to pay Senpai IT Solutions' reasonable costs of collection of overdue amounts, including collection agency fees, attorney fees and court costs.
(c) Early Termination. The setup fee is non-refundable unless the Customer requested the the cancellation

Without limiting any other remedy available to Senpai IT Solutions arising from an early termination of the Agreement, in the event Senpai IT Solutions terminates the Agreement for Customer's breach of the Agreement in accordance with Section 13(b) (i) - (iii) (Termination), or Customer terminates the Unmanaged Hosting Service other than for Senpai IT Solutions' breach in accordance with Section 13(a) (i) - (ii) (Termination), all fees due under the Agreement, including the monthly recurring fees for the remaining portion of the Term, are due thirty (30) days following termination of the Unmanaged Hosting Service.
(d) Taxes. Customer shall remit to Senpai IT Solutions all sales, VAT or similar tax imposed on the provision of the Services (but not in the nature of an income tax on Senpai IT Solutions) regardless of whether Senpai IT Solutions fails to collect the tax at the time the related Services are provided. Customer will provide such information and documentation reasonably requested by Senpai IT Solutions to determine whether Senpai IT Solutions is obligated to collect VAT from Customer.
5. Customer Obligations. Customer agrees to do all of the following at its expense:
(a) Security Precautions. Use reasonable security precautions in connection with its use of the Services (including, without limitation, encrypting any Protected Information transmitted to or from, or stored by Customer on, the servers or storage devices used by Customer) and, if Customer resells Senpai IT Solutions' services, require its customers and end users to use reasonable security precautions;
(b) Law, AUP. Comply with all legal requirements applicable to Customer's use of the Services and with Senpai IT Solutions' AUP, and if Customer resells Senpai IT Solutions' Service, require its customers and end users to comply with applicable legal requirements and Senpai IT Solutions' AUP;
(c) Investigation of AUP. Cooperate with Senpai IT Solutions' reasonable investigation of any suspected violation of the AUP; and
(d) Verification of identity. When requested, provide the copies of the ID and other documents to Senpai IT Solutions in order to verify the identity of the Customer. The copies of the documents will be used by Senpai IT Solutions solely for the purpose for which such copies are requested.
Customer agrees that Senpai IT Solutions may, in its reasonable commercial judgment, amend the AUP from time to time to further detail or describe reasonable restrictions and conditions on Customer's use of the Services.

However, if: (i) the amendment would materially and adversely affect Customer, (ii) Customer provides Senpai IT Solutions with a written notice describing its objection to the amendment in reasonable detail within five (5) Business Days of the effective date of the amendment, and (iii) Senpai IT Solutions does not agree to waive the amendment as to Customer within five (5) Business Days of Customer's notice, then Customer may terminate the Agreement without liability as provided in Section 13 (a)(iii) (Termination).

(b) Senpai IT Solutions reserves the right to suspend or cancel, at any time and at its sole discretion, any server if the activities that are carried out with the usage of that server which Senpai IT Solutions in its sole discretion deems to be (i) made in breach of this Agreement or (ii) are suspicious with regards to money laundering, distributions of malware, troyans and viruses, hosting of botnet command centers, supporting of terrorism, fraud, distribution of any kind of pornography, email and web spam, phishing, unauthorized access to information and private data, identity theft, infringement of copyright, or other illegal activities.

A party seeking indemnification under this Section shall provide prompt notice of its claim for indemnification to the indemnifying party; provided, however, that failure to give prompt notice shall not affect the indemnifying party's obligations under this Section unless and to the extent that the failure materially prejudices the defense of the matter.

(q) Traffic. The usage of traffic is free and unlimited. However the connection speed will be reduced to 10 mbps if the limit of 10 terrabytes transfer per calendar month per server is reached. You can then request a permanent 100 mbps paid bandwidth with the first 10 terrabytes per month for free. Once the server is switched to the paid bandwidth, it can not be switched back to the free bandwidth unless the full setup fee for the given server plan is paid. All payments for the traffic overusage must be made upfront in the matter of deposit; once the traffic usage reaches the paid amount of the traffic for the given month, another prepayment must be made. The current cost for the traffic overusage is 9 euro per terrabyte or part thereof. The threshold for the AMD-based servers is 5 terrabytes instead of 10. The prices are not VAT inclusive.
