Section 8-15

8. Credit approval and financial security

8.1 The provision of Services or sale of Equipment by LeaseWeb to
Customer is subject to approval by LeaseWeb of Customer’s
credit. In view hereof, Customer shall prior to the RFS Date or
Delivery Date provide credit information to LeaseWeb for
approval by LeaseWeb.

8.2 LeaseWeb may, at any time, by notice in writing impose a credit
limit on Customer to an amount to be determined by
LeaseWeb. Any Services required by Customer in excess of any
such credit limit will require Customer to deposit an amount
equal to or greater than the amount by which Customer will
exceed the credit limit.

8.3 In addition to Section 8.2, LeaseWeb may require Customer to
provide a deposit or a bank guarantee or a parent guarantee,
equivalent to up to three (3) months' Service Charges (actual or
projected) or other security satisfactory to LeaseWeb.

8.4 Any deposit or bank guarantee or parent guarantee shall be
held by LeaseWeb as security for the payment of Service
Charges and any other amounts due under the Agreement.

8.5 Upon termination or expiration of the Agreement, LeaseWeb
may apply a deposit or bank guarantee or parent guarantee to
any amounts owed by Customer to LeaseWeb. Any remaining
credit balance of a deposit shall be refunded to Customer. Any
deposit paid by Customer pursuant to this Section will not carry
any interest.

9. Terms of payment

9.1 For Equipment purchased by Customer from LeaseWeb,
Customer shall pay to LeaseWeb the purchase price specified in
the Order Form. For the use of the Services, Customer shall pay
to LeaseWeb the Service Charges. Unless specified otherwise,
all Service Charges are in US Dollars.

9.2 LeaseWeb is entitled to increase any of the Service Charges one
(1) time per calendar year, by the higher of either: (a) five
percent (5%); or (b) the percentage increase of the CPI for the
previous year. The increase will apply with effect from the first
(1st) of January, unless stipulated otherwise by LeaseWeb in its
notification to Customer. In the event that the increase of the
Service Charges takes effect within twelve (12) months of the
Effective Date, the increase will be pro‐rated on the basis of the
number of months that have passed since the Effective Date.

9.3 In addition to Section 9.2, LeaseWeb shall be entitled to pass on
changes in any (license) fees or prices or charges for
(software)products: (i) used by LeaseWeb in the provision of
Service to Customer; (ii) or licensed or resold by LeaseWeb to
Customer.

9.4 Unless specified otherwise in the Order Form, LeaseWeb will
invoice:

a) the purchase price of any Equipment sold by LeaseWeb to
Customer, upon the Effective Date of the Order;

b) setup charges, Service activation charges and any other non‐
recurring initial charges, upon the RFS Date or upon the
Effective Date, whichever is earlier; and

c) all recurring Service Charges, e.g. with respect to the usage
of Bandwidth and/or Data Traffic, as of the RFS Date or the
Effective Date (whichever is earlier), and monthly in advance
thereafter, with the exception of use of Services above the
agreed levels of Service and/or additional services which will
be invoiced monthly in arrears.

9.6 LeaseWeb will send invoices to Customer by e‐mail, in a

LeaseWeb will – as an extra Service – provide Customer with a
print out of the invoice, via regular mail. For such extra Service,
Customer shall pay a Service Charge to LeaseWeb, in relation to
the additional (administrative) activities performed by
LeaseWeb and the costs of the mail service.

9.7 Unless specified otherwise in the Order Form, all invoices sent
by LeaseWeb to Customer are payable by Customer to
LeaseWeb within fourteen (14) days of the date of the invoice

9.8 The method of payment is specified in the Order Form. In case
of Direct Debit or Credit Card, Customer authorizes LeaseWeb
to charge Customer’s bank account or Credit Card for the
Service Charges.

9.9 In case Customer has a complaint with respect to an invoice,
Customer shall communicate such complaint in writing to
LeaseWeb within the payment term, in the absence whereof
invoices are deemed to be approved of by Customer. A
complaint with respect to an invoice shall only be taken into
consideration in the event that the complaint specifies the
relevant invoice(s) and provides proper motivation for the
complaint. In such case, the Parties will use commercially
reasonable efforts to resolve the dispute amicably within
twenty (20) days of LeaseWeb’s receipt of Customer’s
complaint, firstly at the level of each Party’s senior
management and – failing satisfactory resolution within fifteen
(15) days – secondly at the Parties’ executive level. In the event
Parties fail to resolve the dispute amicably within twenty (20)
days of LeaseWeb’s receipt of Customer’s complaint, each Party
shall be entitled to commence dispute resolution in accordance
with Section 27.

9.10 Customer shall not be entitled to any set‐off or deduction of
payment of an invoice. Customer’s right to suspend payment of
(part of) an invoice is limited to the amount of the invoice that
is contested in good faith by Customer, in accordance with
Section 9.9. In the event Customer’s complaint is found to be
unjustified, Customer will immediately pay the outstanding
amount, plus interest in accordance with Section 9.11.

9.11 If Customer does not pay an invoice within the payment term,
in the event that such invoice has not been disputed in
accordance with Section 9.9, or Customer does not pay the
undisputed part of the invoice within the payment term,
Customer shall be in default by operation of law and LeaseWeb
will, without a warning or notice of default being required, be
entitled to charge Customer interest on such sum on a daily
basis from the due date until the date of payment with an
interest rate of six percent (6%) per annum, without any
prejudice to LeaseWeb’s other rights and remedies.

9.12 In addition to Section 9.11, in the event that LeaseWeb and
Customer have agreed to payment by Customer to LeaseWeb

authorization; or (ii) payment to LeaseWeb has been reversed
or denied more than once.

and/or Equipment from LeaseWeb; provided, however, that

worth‐, and property taxes.

10.2 Notwithstanding the foregoing, LeaseWeb shall not invoice
Customer for any taxes for which Customer has provided a valid
exemption certificate in a form reasonably acceptable to
LeaseWeb.
