SCOPE OF SERVICES. Pixeld will provide Customer the specific Services as expressly set forth on the Scope of Work.

Pixeld reserves the right to modify a Service Agreement by providing at least 30 days’ notice, which notice may be given, among other possible methods, via email; provided, however, if Customer disputes such change it may terminate the applicable Service Agreement (without a termination fee) by providing notice to Pixeld within 5 business days from Customer’s receipt of the proposed changes, and such termination shall become effective on the date Pixeld proposed such modifications take effect.
FEES AND CHARGES; PAYMENT. Customer agrees to pay the rates and charges for the Services set forth within the Scope of Work; provided, however, if no specific rates and charges are specified in the Scope of Work then Customer shall pay Pixeld on a time and materials basis for Services in accordance with Consultant’s then-standard rates and all such rates and charges are due within 30 days of invoice date. Customer shall reimburse all reasonable travel and other related expenses incurred by Pixeld in its performance of the Services. All amounts invoiced to Customer shall be deemed valid unless Customer disputes such charges in writing within 30 days after the invoice is sent by Pixeld to Customer. Without limiting any other rights or remedies of Pixeld, any amounts payable by Customer that are not paid when due shall incur a late fee of 1.5% (or the maximum amount permitted by law if such maximum amount is less than such late fee). Customer agrees to pay all taxes and fees assessed in connection with the Services, except for taxes based on Pixeld’s net income, property and personnel. Notwithstanding other provisions of this Service Agreement, Customer shall be responsible for any costs Pixeld incurs in enforcing collection of any amounts due under the Service Agreement, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, court or arbitration costs, or collection agency fees.
TERM AND TERMINATION. Unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing, a Service Agreement shall become effective when the Scope of Work is agreed upon by both parties (“Service Agreement Effective Date”), and shall remain in effect throughout the term specified in the Scope of Work unless terminated in accordance with the express terms of the Service Agreement; provided, however any recurring (e.g., monthly) Services which are being provided pursuant to a Service Agreement shall automatically be extended under the same terms and conditions for additional monthly terms unless and until such Service Agreement is terminated in accordance with the express terms of the Service Agreement, or either party provides at least 15 days prior written notice to the other party prior to the then-current recurring period of its intention to have such Service Agreement expire. In addition to any other rights to terminate or suspend Services pursuant to a Service Agreement, either party may terminate the Service Agreement or Pixeld may suspend provision of the Service upon an Event of Default of the other party. Notice by Customer to Pixeld of intent to terminate must be provided via written notice to Pixeld LLC, 2098 Gaither Road, Rockville, Maryland 20850, ATTN: President.

EXCEPT FOR THE EXPRESS LIMITED WARRANTY SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION, PIXELD MAKES NO WARRANTIES EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY WITH RESPECT TO ANY SERVICES, AND PIXELD EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
