2. TYPE OF APPLICATIONS
2.1. Through the SYSPRO AppStore you will have access to:
2.1.1. SYSPRO Applications – Applications that have been developed by SYSPRO and which are licensed to you by SYSPRO; and
2.1.2. Third Party Applications – Applications that have been developed, and are licensed to you, by a third party developer (“Third Party Publisher”).
The Publisher of a particular Application will be identified on the SYSPRO AppStore.
2.2. The Applications are divided into three categories, namely:
2.2.1. Applications that you can download for free and which can be used by an unlimited number of your Users (“Free Applications”);
2.2.2. Applications that you can download after paying a once-off licence fee to the Publisher and which can be used (i) by those of your Users who are licensed to use SYSPRO Software, or (ii) an unlimited number of your Users (“Once-Off Fee Applications”); and
2.2.3. Applications that you can download after paying an initial licence fee to the Publisher and which can only be used by those of your Users who are licensed to use SYSPRO Software. In order to continue using such Applications, you will be required to pay ongoing annual licence fees to the Publisher (“Full Fee Applications”).
For purposes of this Agreement a “User” means a person, being your employee or a person under contract to you, who is authorised to access and use the Applications at any one time. The category of a particular Application and the number of Users who can use the Application will be identified on the SYSPRO AppStore.

3.3. You acknowledge and agree that SYSPRO is a third party beneficiary of the End User Licence Agreement contained in this Agreement (“EULA”) or the Publisher’s end user licence agreement (“Publisher’s EULA”), as the case may be, for each Third Party Application.

You acknowledge that SYSPRO, in relation to SYSPRO Applications, and the Third Party Publishers, in relation to Third Party Applications, may, at their sole discretion, amend any policies relating to such Applications or the hardware or software requirements relating to the Applications from time to time and you agree to comply with such amendments. You acknowledge that if you do not comply with such amendments, you may not be able to continue using the Applications that you have downloaded.
12.1. Although the licence fees are payable to SYSPRO, you acknowledge that SYSPRO will be receiving payment of the licence fees on behalf of the Publishers and, in this regard, is acting as a payment agent for and on behalf of such Publishers.
12.2. Except in respect of annual licence fees (“ALF”), all payments for the Applications shall be by way of credit card. SYSPRO may obtain pre-approval for an amount up to the fee that is payable in respect of your transaction.
12.3. When you place an order for an Application, you will be advised of the fee payable in respect of the transaction. The fee will be debited to your credit card and once payment has been confirmed, you will be furnished with a licence key that will enable you to download and use the Application.
12.4. You agree that you will pay for all Applications you purchase through the SYSPRO AppStore, and that SYSPRO may charge your credit card for any Applications in respect of which you purchase licences and for any additional amounts (including any taxes, as applicable) that may be accrued by or in connection with such transaction.
12.5. You are responsible for the timely payment of all fees and for providing SYSPRO with a valid credit card for payment of all fees. You will not be allowed to purchase any licences for any Applications in respect of which a fee is payable until SYSPRO, or its agent, has verified your payment information. In the event that a payment effected by you is subsequently reversed by your bankers, for whatever reason, SYSPRO shall be entitled to immediately terminate the licence to which such payment related.
12.6. All credit card payments are processed by the MyGate Internet Payment Gateway. You may go to www.mygate.co.za to view MyGate’s security policy.
12.7. All sales of licences in respect of Applications are final.
12.8. Fees for the Applications offered via the SYSPRO AppStore may change at any time and you will be obliged to pay the fee applicable to the Application when you apply to purchase the licence in respect of that Application.
12.9. If an Application becomes unavailable following a transaction but prior to download, your sole remedy is a refund. If technical problems solely related to the SYSPRO AppStore prevent you from downloading an Application, your exclusive and sole remedy is refund of the fee paid.
12.10. All fees payable by you to SYSPRO exclude any taxes and/or levies due as a result of a requirement by any governmental organisation (which shall include, but not be limited to, any value added tax, importation tax and general sales tax) and all these taxes and/or levies shall be paid by you at the then prevailing rate. If any payments due by you to SYSPRO are subject to withholding tax, you shall pay SYSPRO an additional amount so that SYSPRO receives full payment of the amount due by you under this Agreement.
12.11. You shall not be entitled, for any cause whatsoever, to withhold, deduct from or defer any amount due by you under this Agreement. All payments shall be free of exchange and set off.
12.12. You carry any risk associated with or arising from the method or manner that you effect payment to SYSPRO. You will only be regarded as having effected payment to SYSPRO when your payment has been received into SYSPRO’s bank account and cleared by its bankers.
12.13. Free Applications
No fees will be payable by you to download Free Applications.
You will be required to pay a once-off licence fee before you can download and use the Application. However no further fees will be payable by you in respect of your continued use of such Application.
12.15. Full Fee Applications
12.15.1. You will be required to pay an initial licence fee (“ILF”) and subsequent annual licence fees (“ALF”) as set out hereunder.
12.15.2. The ILF will be payable prior to you first downloading the Application.
12.15.3. An ALF period runs from 1 November of one year to 31 October of the following year except in the United States of America where an ALF period runs from 1 January to 31 December of the same year (“ALF Period”). You will only be required to pay ALF for the first and subsequent ALF Periods that commence after the date on which you first download the Application. ALF is payable in advance prior to the commencement of the ALF Period to which it relates. All payments of ALF will be invoiced to you and will be payable by you to SYSPRO.
12.15.4. On receipt of your payment of ALF in respect of the Application, you will be allowed to continue using the Application for that ALF Period. In the event that you fail to timeously pay ALF in respect of an Application, you will not be able to use that Application after the commencement of the ALF Period for which your ALF payment is outstanding. IN SUCH CIRCUMSTANCES THE INDEMNIFIED PARTIES SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OR LOSS ARISING FROM THE FACT THAT YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CONTINUE USING THE APPLICATION OR FOR ANY OTHER CLAIM RELATED IN ANY WAY TO SUCH FACT. AS SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR PARTICULAR DAMAGES, IN SUCH JURISDICTIONS THE INDEMNIFIED PARTIES’ LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
12.15.5. The ALF may increase every year. You will be notified of the ALF that will be payable for the next ALF Period prior to the commencement thereof and will therefore be able to choose whether or not you wish to continue using the Application.
