  1. SCOPE OF WORK. The Parties will undertake the activities listed in Exhibit A | Agency Scope of Work. The Parties acknowledge that their respective obligations to undertake the activities listed in Appendix A | Agency Scope of Work serve as good and valuable consideration for this Agreement. Agency shall perform the services (the “Services”) for Client as described in a Scope of Work (“SOW”) executed pursuant to this Agreement, which shall result in work product produced by Agency for Client (each a “Deliverable” and collectively the “Deliverables”).  Each SOW executed pursuant to this Agreement shall be attached hereto as part of Exhibit A.  From time to time, the Parties may execute additional SOWs, each of which shall be numbered chronologically, as Exhibit A-1, A-2, etc., and appended to this Agreement upon their execution.  Such SOWs shall identify the Services to be performed, provide specifications, instructions, and compensation to be paid, but shall not modify any other term or condition of this Agreement, and without the need for reference shall incorporate all terms and conditions of this Agreement.  In the event that there is a conflict between the SOW and this Agreement, the terms and conditions of this Agreement prevail.  This is not an exclusive arrangement between the Parties.  
  2. PAYMENT. In consideration for the provision of the Services by Agency, Agency shall be paid at the rate and in the amount indicated in the SOWs. Unless otherwise provided in a SOW, Agency shall provide Client with monthly invoices detailing the service fees which Company believes are due under this Agreement.  Client shall pay all invoices within fifteen (15) days of receipt.  Client shall pay all invoices with by check, automated purchasing card or ACH transaction.  All invoices shall be submitted to Client via email at: {{customer_wp_user_email}}.
  3. TERM AND TERMINATION. The term of this Agreement shall be six (6) months from the Effective Date unless terminated earlier pursuant to the provisions of this Agreement. Thereafter, the term will automatically renew for successive six (6) month terms without notice until terminated pursuant to the provisions of this Agreement.
    1. Termination for Convenience. Client or Agency may terminate this Agreement for any reason at any time after the initial Term with 30 days prior written notice without further obligation of either Party except for any outstanding payment obligations hereunder.
    2. Effect of Termination. Termination shall not relieve either Party of any obligations incurred prior to the termination.

In addition, Client grants to Agency a non-exclusive, non-transferable, royalty-free license to use Client's pre-existing trade names, trademarks, logos and service marks (collectively Marks) in connection with the performance of this Agreement. Agency shall not use any of Client's Marks for any purpose outside of the Agency Scope of Work without first obtaining the prior written advance consent of Client. Agency agrees that it shall cease using Client's Marks immediately upon request, and in no event shall this license survive the term of this Agreement.

    11. Arbitration. Any claim arising out of or related to this Agreement, or a breach hereof, is to be settled by arbitration in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section 10.  The Parties agree that, in the event of a dispute arising out of this Agreement, the affected Parties will submit such dispute to binding arbitration as provided herein.  All arbitrations will be conducted in St. Louis County, Missouri, or at another location mutually approved by such Parties, pursuant to the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association except as provided herein.  The panel used will be selected from arbitrators employed by the American Arbitration Association and the decisions of the arbitrators are final and binding on all Parties thereto.  All arbitrations will be undertaken pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act, where applicable, and the decision of the arbitrator is enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction.  The Parties agree to waive their respective rights to further appeal or redress in any other court or tribunal except solely for the purpose of obtaining execution of the decision resulting from the arbitration proceeding.  In the event of any arbitration or other legal proceeding brought by any Party with regard to any matter arising out of or related to this Agreement, the Parties hereby expressly agrees that the final award decision will also provide for an allocation and division between or among the Parties to the arbitration, of: (i) legal fees and expenses as set forth in Section 10.3; and (ii) all other costs and expenses of the dispute, including court costs and arbitrators’, reasonable accountants’ and expert witnesses’ fees, costs and expenses (including disbursements) incurred in connection with such proceedings, on a basis which is just and equitable under the circumstances.  The arbitrator is directed by this Agreement to conduct the arbitration hearing no later than three (3) months from the service of the statement of claim and demand for arbitration unless good cause is shown establishing that the hearing cannot fairly and practically be so convened.  Depositions will be taken only as deemed appropriate by the arbitrator and only where good cause is shown.  The Parties to the arbitration will be entitled to conduct document discovery by requesting production of documents.  Responses or objections will be served twenty days after receipt of a request.  The arbitrator will resolve any discovery disputes by such pre-hearing conferences as may be needed.  The Parties agree that the arbitrator and any counsel of record to the proceeding have the power of subpoena process as provided by law.  Notices of demand for arbitration must be filed in writing with Company and the other Members in accordance with Section 10.1.  A demand for arbitration is to be made within a reasonable time after the claim has arisen, but in no event later than the date when institution of legal or equitable proceedings based on such claim would be barred by the applicable statute of limitations.  The award rendered by the arbitrators, including as to legal fees in accordance with Section 10.3, is final, and judgment may be entered upon it in accordance with the law in any court of competent jurisdiction.
    12. Non-Exclusive Arrangement. The Parties understand that this Agreement is not an exclusive arrangement between the Parties. The Parties agree that they are free to enter into similar transactions as set forth in this Agreement with other entities and that the Parties may directly or indirectly solicit customer referrals via other channels under terms that may differ from the terms and conditions set forth herein.
    13. Construction. In the event that any provision of this Agreement conflicts with the law under which this Agreement is to be construed, or if any provision is held invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, such provision shall be deemed to be restated to reflect as nearly as possible the original intentions of the Parties, and the remainder of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect. There shall be no presumption for or against either Party as a result of such Party being the principal drafter of this Agreement.
    14. Interpretation.  The Parties hereto agree that this Agreement is the product of negotiation between sophisticated parties and individuals, all of whom were represented by, or had an opportunity to be represented by legal counsel, and each of whom had an opportunity to participate in, the drafting of each provision hereof.  Accordingly, ambiguities in this Agreement, if any, shall not be construed strictly or in favor of or against either Party but rather shall be given a fair and reasonable construction.
    15. Records. During the Term and for a period of 1 year(s) thereafter, the Parties will maintain books and records related to the customer transactions contemplated under this Agreement. Upon reasonable notice, the requested Party will provide such books and records to the requesting Party for review to ensure the requested Party's compliance with the terms of this Agreement.
