APP DISTRIBUTION AND SERVICES AGREEMENT
This is an agreement between Amazon Digital Services LLC, Amazon Media EU S.a.r.l., Amazon Services International, Inc., Amazon Servicos de Varejo do Brasil Ltda., Amazon.com Int’l Sales, Inc., and Amazon Australia Services, Inc., and, if you are a resident of India that develops an Alexa Skill (as defined below), Amazon Seller Services Pvt Ltd (each, individually, an “Amazon Party” and, together with their affiliates, “Amazon,” “we” or “us”) and you (if registering as an individual) or the entity you represent (if registering as a business) (“Developer” or “you”). Any other Amazon affiliate that we designate is also an Amazon Party.
Structure of Agreement. This agreement (the “Agreement”) includes the body of the agreement below, all schedules to this agreement (“Schedules”), and all terms, rules and policies that we make available for participating in this program, including on our developer portal (together, the “Program Policies”). However, the terms in each Schedule only apply to you if you engage in the activity or use the Program Materials (defined in Section 3) to which the Schedule applies (for instance, the terms of the Distribution Schedule only apply to you if you submit a product to us to sell, distribute, or promote). Please carefully read the Agreement before clicking to accept it.
Our Program. Our program (the “Program”) allows end users to purchase, download, and access mobile and non-mobile software applications, games, and other digital products, and to use related services that we make available (for instance, Amazon GameCircle). “Apps” are software applications, games, and other digital products that you submit to us for sale, distribution, or promotion through the Program, or with which you use any Program Materials, together with their enhancements, upgrades, updates, bug fixes, new versions and other modifications and amendments. “Content” means your Apps, all content, ads, services, technology, data and other digital materials included in or made available through your Apps, and all Product Information (if applicable, defined in the Distribution Schedule).
Program Materials. We may make available certain software, software development kits, libraries, application programing interfaces, services, documentation, sample code, and related materials and information for use in connection with the Program (collectively, the “Program Materials”). If you use any Program Materials, you are subject to and agree to comply with our Program Materials License Agreement (the "Program Materials License"), located at https://developer.amazon.com/sdk/pml.html. Your use of certain Program Materials is also subject to the additional terms in any Schedules that apply to those Program Materials (for instance, your use of the Program Materials that we make available for sale of In-App Products is subject to the terms of the Distribution Schedule and the In-App Product Schedule). You are solely responsible for ensuring your Content functions properly with any Program Materials you use, including any future updated or modified versions of those Program Materials. In the event of a conflict between this Agreement and the Program Materials License, the Program Materials License will govern with respect to your use of the Program Materials.
Compliance with Laws; Privacy Obligations. You and your Content must comply with all applicable laws, rules, regulations, orders, and other requirements of governmental agencies (“Laws”). In addition, if you (or any third-party plug-in or service provider you use) have access to any name, password, other login information, or personally identifiable information or personal data of any end user based on any use of or interaction with your Content, you will (i) provide legally adequate privacy notices to such end user, (ii) obtain any necessary consent from the end user for the collection, use, transfer, and storage of the information, (iii) use and authorize others to access and use the information only for the purposes permitted by the end user, and (iv) ensure the information is collected, used, transferred, and stored in accordance with applicable privacy notice(s) and applicable Laws.
Prohibited Actions. You may not reverse engineer, disassemble or decompile any binary code used in connection with the Program, including any Program Materials we provide you. You will not take any action related to the Program that interferes with, damages, or accesses or uses in any unauthorized manner the hardware, software, networks, technologies or other properties or services of ours or of any end user, mobile operator or other third party.
Our Operations. We have sole discretion to determine all features and operations of the Program and to change the Program from time to time. You acknowledge that we have no obligation to promote, distribute, or offer for sale any App, to permit you or your Content to use any Program Materials, or to continue any of the foregoing once begun. We are responsible for and have sole discretion related to processing payments, collecting payments, addressing requests for refunds, and providing customer service related to our obligations, and we will have sole ownership and control of all sales and other data we obtain from end users in connection with the Program.
Term and Termination; Suspension. The term of this Agreement (the “Term”) will begin on the date you click to accept it and will continue until you or we terminate it. We are entitled to terminate this Agreement and your Program account (including access to your Program account) at our discretion with or without advance notice to you. You are entitled to terminate this Agreement at any time by giving us at least 10 days advance written notice. We may also suspend your participation in our Program at our discretion with or without notice to you. We are not obligated to return copies of any Content or other materials that you provide.

General. This Agreement may not be amended except in writing signed by both parties or as provided in Section 12 above. If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid by a court with jurisdiction over the parties to this Agreement, such provision will be deemed to be restated to reflect as nearly as possible the original intentions of the parties in accordance with applicable law, and the remainder of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect. The word “including” will be interpreted without limitation when used in this Agreement. The parties to this Agreement are independent contractors. Each party will bear its own costs and expenses in performing this Agreement. We may use one or more subcontractors to exercise our rights and perform our obligations hereunder. We will be responsible for ensuring that our subcontractors comply with the applicable portions of this Agreement when performing for us or on our behalf. Our failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of our rights to subsequently enforce the provision. Each Amazon Party is severally liable for its own obligations under this Agreement and is not jointly liable for the obligations of other Amazon Parties. The rights granted to Amazon.com Int’l Sales, Inc. under this Agreement are only for sale, distribution, and promotion of Apps outside of the United States. If you are a resident of India and develop an Alexa Skill, you are contracting solely with Amazon Seller Services Pvt Ltd with respect to the development, sale, distribution and promotion of Alexa Skills. You may not assign any of your rights or obligations under this Agreement, whether by operation of law or otherwise, without our prior written consent, except that you may assign all of your rights and obligations under this Agreement to any corporation or other entity without consent in connection with a merger or the sale of all or substantially all of your assets as long as you give us written notice of any such assignment no later than ten business days before such assignment. Subject to the foregoing limitation, this Agreement will be binding upon, inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by the parties and their respective successors and assigns. THIS AGREEMENT WILL BE GOVERNED BY THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF WASHINGTON, WITHOUT REFERENCE TO RULES GOVERNING CHOICE OF LAWS OR THE U.N. CONVENTION ON CONTRACTS FOR THE INTERNATIONAL SALE OF GOODS. YOU HEREBY IRREVOCABLY CONSENT TO AND WAIVE ANY OBJECTION TO THE EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION AND VENUE OF THE FEDERAL AND STATE COURTS LOCATED AT KING COUNTY, WASHINGTON WITH RESPECT TO ANY CLAIMS, SUITS OR PROCEEDINGS ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY. This Agreement and the Program Materials License constitutes the entire agreement between the parties with respect to its subject matter, supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous agreements between the parties with respect to its subject matter, and does not give any third party (except where specified) any rights or remedies hereunder. Any notice or other communication to be given hereunder will be in writing and given (i) by us via email, via a posting in the Program Policies, or via a message through your Program account, or (ii) by you via email to with a cc via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or to such other email or physical addresses as we may specify from time to time. The date of receipt will, in the case of email, be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
The terms of this Schedule apply if you submit any App for sale, distribution, or promotion through the Program.
Types of Apps. Our Program supports the sale, distribution, and promotion of Apps for multiple platforms. A “Mobile App” is an App that is designed to operate on Android or another mobile operating system or in a mobile browser. An “Amazon Underground App” is a Mobile App that you submit for inclusion in Amazon Underground (defined in the Amazon Underground Schedule). A “PC Game” is a video game or video game related App that is designed to operate on Windows, OSX, or another personal computer operating system or in a desktop browser. “PC Software” is an App that is designed to operate on Windows, OSX, or another personal computer operating system or in a desktop browser and is not a PC Game. An “Alexa Skill” is an App that can be accessed through the Alexa Voice Services platform. An “In-App Product” is an App intended to be accessed or used within a software application or game (such as additional or enhanced functionality, in-app tools, data, subscriptions, or media content), but that is made available for sale through the Program as a separate item from the software application or game in which it is intended to be used. If you submit an App to us for sale, distribution, or promotion, you authorize us to sell, distribute, and promote that App and related Content as provided in this Schedule, including through regional Amazon marketplaces (each, an “Amazon Marketplace”) and via Amazon websites or any other web page real estate, online point of presence, application, mobile interface, service, or user interface that allows for the discovery, download or purchase of Apps from us, including the Amazon Associates program and similar programs.
Royalty. For each sale of an App, the responsible Amazon Party will pay you a royalty (“Royalty”) calculated as follows (where List Price is defined in and subject to Section 5a of this Schedule and Retail Price is defined in and subject to Section 5b of this Schedule):
Mobile Apps and Mobile App In-App Products (excluding Subscription In-App Products and Amazon Underground Apps) 70% of the List Price for the applicable Amazon Marketplace as of the time of purchase Subscription In-App Products Movies & TV 80% of the List Price for the applicable Amazon Marketplace as of the time of purchase Other 70% Amazon Underground Apps Underground Royalties described in the Amazon Underground Schedule. PC Games and PC Game In-App Products Prior to March 17, 2018, your Royalties will be 70% of the List Price for the applicable country as of the time of purchase. After March 17, 2018, your Royalties will be the greater of (i) 70% of the applicable Retail Price or (ii) 20% of the List Price for the applicable country as of the time of purchase. PC Software and PC Software In-App Products Prior to March 17, 2018, your Royalties will be the lower of (i) 70% of the List Price or (ii) 90% of the wholesale price for the corresponding physical version of the App (if applicable), in each case, for the applicable country as of the time of purchase by an end user. After March 17, 2018, your Royalties will be the greater of (i) 70% of the applicable Retail Price or (ii) 20% of the List Price for the applicable country as of the time of purchase. Alexa Skills Our Program does not currently support the sale of paid Alexa Skills or purchases within Alexa Skills. We do not currently pay any Royalty or other compensation related to Alexa Skills.
No Royalty is payable for Apps with a List Price of $0.00. Royalties for certain In-App Products are subject to additional restrictions in the In-App Product Schedule. Taxes and any separately stated fees or charges are excluded from the List Price and the Retail Price when calculating Royalties. A Royalty is due only for sales for which we have received final payment from or on behalf of an end user. If an App is purchased using a credit card or bank account deduction mechanism, final payment will be deemed to have occurred when the applicable credit card company or bank has fully settled the payment for the applicable purchase. The List Price or the Retail Price used for purposes of calculating Royalties for PC Games and PC Software will be based on our determination of an end user’s country.
Territory. Worldwide, subject to Section 3e of this Schedule.
Submission of Apps and Information.
Submission of Apps. You may choose to submit to us any Apps that meet the requirements of the Agreement. While an App is available for distribution, you will submit any bug fixes, patches, and other updates to the Apps, together with any related Required Product Information (defined in Section 2b of this Schedule), as soon as they are available. You will ensure that all of your Content complies with this Agreement, including all Program Policies. For any Content that requires a license key or other data element that an end user must use in order to use or access any feature of functionality of an App (a “License Key”), you will deliver License Keys to us upon request in a format we specify.
Product Information. Together with delivery of each App, you will also provide the following information: App title, category, Developer name, publisher name (where applicable), List Price, product description, icon/image, and any other information related to the Apps that we require (together, “Required Product Information”). “Product Information” includes the Required Product Information and any other information and content related to your Content and/or to you, such as (a) all metadata, graphics, artwork, images, trademarks, trade names, logos and other descriptive or identifying information and materials associated with you or a particular App, (b) the excerpts created in accordance with Section 3b of this Schedule, and (c) any Developer’s EULA (defined in Section 4a of this Schedule). You are responsible for providing accurate Product Information, and will not make any false, inaccurate, or misleading claims or statements regarding any Content or otherwise mislead end users regarding any Content. If any Product Information is inaccurate or needs to be updated or modified, you will promptly provide us with corrections, updates, or modifications.
Grants of Rights
Distribution. You hereby grant us the nonexclusive, irrevocable (subject to Sections 6 and 7 of this Schedule), royalty-free right to sell, distribute, and make available your Apps through the Program to end users in the Territory by all means of electronic distribution available now or in the future. You also hereby grant us the nonexclusive, irrevocable, royalty-free, worldwide rights to (i) use, evaluate and test your Content; (ii) reproduce and store your Apps in digital form on one or more computer facilities for the purpose of promoting, selling and distributing the Apps and in connection with the Program; (iii) modify and add to your Apps so that we can collect analytics relating to the Apps, evaluate and enforce our Program policies, and share aggregated information with you and others regarding the Program; (iv) modify and add to your Mobile Apps so we can (at your option) enforce digital rights management (“DRM”); (v) add metadata to your Mobile Apps so we can improve their compatibility with Amazon devices; and (vi) retain, after the Term, one or more electronic copies of each App and associated Content and allow access to and downloads and re-downloads of Apps by end users as provided in this Agreement. For Alexa Skills, the distribution rights set forth in the Alexa Skills Schedule apply in lieu of the rights set forth in this Section 3a. You acknowledge that we may allow end users who have purchased an App to download unlimited copies of that App. For avoidance of doubt, if end users download or access an App that is free of charge, that App will be deemed to be “purchased” by the end user for purposes of this Agreement.
Promotion. You hereby grant us the nonexclusive, irrevocable, royalty-free, worldwide rights to use, reproduce, distribute, reformat, modify, create excerpts from, promote, advertise, transmit, and publicly display and perform in any and all digital and other formats (i) the Product Information for promotional purposes in connection with the Program (except that we will not use any trademarks you provide for purposes of us selling an App after the withdrawal of that App as described in Section 6 of this Schedule or after the Term) and (ii) your Apps and other Content in order to create limited promotional excerpts and in order to allow end users to try your Apps for a limited time without downloading or installing them.
Additional Rights. In addition, we may exercise any ancillary rights relating to your Content that are reasonably necessary to effect the intent of the grants of rights contained in this Agreement, such as the rights to encode and to publically perform. We may also sublicense our rights in Product Information under this Agreement to third parties operating the websites or online or mobile points of presence described in Section 1a of this Schedule. Nothing in this Agreement restricts us from exercising any right available to us under applicable law or any separate license.
Reservations of Rights. Subject to the rights granted in this Agreement and our ownership of the Program Materials, as between you and us, you retain all right, title and interest in and to Content that you submit to us. Subject to your rights in such Content, we retain all right, title and interest in and to the Program and all technology, content, information, services, trademarks and other intellectual property used in connection with it. Without limiting the foregoing, each of us recognizes that any uses of the other’s (or its affiliates’) brand features in connection with this Agreement, and goodwill associated with such uses, will inure solely to the party owning such brand features. If you provide suggestions, ideas, or other feedback to us about the Program, we will be free to exercise all rights in such feedback without restriction and without compensating you.
Geographic Filtering. Through our developer portal, you may designate countries where you do not want us to sell your Apps. We will implement measures intended to identify an end user’s country and to not offer your Apps for sale to end users from any countries you designate. We may rely on our determination of an end user’s country for all purposes under this Agreement.
Additional Distribution Terms
Embedded Advertising. You will ensure that any advertising presented to end users of the Content complies with all requirements of this Agreement. For example, (i) your access to and use of information related to end users’ use of embedded advertising must comply with our privacy-related requirements; (ii) embedded advertising must comply with the Program Policies at the time such advertising is accessed by any end user; and (iii) embedded advertising must not contain any “spyware,” “malware” or harmful code and must not cause injury to any person or damage to any property. In addition, for Mobile Apps, you may not display advertising, marketing, or promotional messaging to end users through the device notification bar or any other device-level notification system.
Prohibited Actions. You have not and will not submit any Content that contains any software or other materials that are subject to licenses or restrictions (e.g., open source software licenses) that, when combined with additional software or other materials (collectively "additional items"), would require us to disclose, license, distribute or otherwise make all or any part of such additional items available to anyone.
Support. You will provide reasonable technical and product support for your Content as requested by end users or us or as described in our Program Policies. Your technical support will include levels of availability, response times and technical skills that are at least equivalent to those for the support you provide to end users of Similar Services. Without limiting the previous sentence, at a minimum you will respond within 24 hours to any support request that we identify as critical, and in all other cases within five business days of request from an end user or us. A “Similar Service” is any online service that makes digital products similar to those sold, distributed or promoted through the Program available to end users using a mode of distribution similar to those used by the Program, including any mobile or Internet-based application marketing, sales and distribution service.
For Mobile Apps Only – Family Library. Our Family Library feature allows end users to link their Amazon accounts together to create a shared library of digital content for their household. Each member of a Family Library may download and use Mobile Apps purchased by the other members of that Family Library, and references in this Agreement to the end user who purchased an App will also include the members of that end user's Family Library.
For Mobile Apps Only – DRM; Usage Policy. For your Mobile Apps, you may choose whether to enforce our DRM. If you decide not to enforce DRM for a Mobile App, that means our systems will not restrict end users who have purchased the Mobile App from downloading and/or making unlimited copies of the Mobile App. If you decide to enforce DRM for a Mobile App, that means you will allow end users who have purchased the Mobile App to download unlimited free copies of the Mobile App only to devices that are authenticated to their Amazon customer accounts. You will not incorporate any digital rights management technologies into Mobile Apps, other than any digital rights management technologies that only restrict end users’ access to media content distributed through a Mobile App (and not access to, or use of, the Mobile App itself).
App Testing Service. We may provide you access to services (“App Testing Services”) that allow you to invite end users you designate (“Testers”) to download or enable an App (such as a Mobile App or an Alexa Skill), or a version of an App, before you make it available to the general public (a “Test App”). Testers will not be charged, and we will not pay you a Royalty, for the purchase of Test Apps or any In-App Products made available in Test Apps. If, after distributing a Test App through an App Testing Service, you make a version of that Test App available to the general public (including through any Similar Service), (i) you will submit that App for distribution through the Program and (ii) we may give to each Tester, without charge and without paying you a Royalty, that App and any In-App Products the Tester purchased in the Test App (or alternate In-App Products of equal or lesser value). You are responsible for selecting all Testers and ensuring you have obtained any consents necessary to share the Testers’ contact information with us and for us to invite the Testers to participate in an App Testing Service.
For PC Software Only - Marketing Development Funds/Coop. For your PC Software, if you or any of your affiliates are, from time to time, a party to any agreement with Amazon pursuant to which you (or your affiliate) has agreed to pay marketing development funds, coop, rebates, or similar payments (collectively, “MDF”) for the physical version of any PC Software, then you will also pay equivalent MDF to us for the PC Software distributed under this Agreement. We may offset against payments due to you the amount of any MDF payable to us from you.
List Price; Retail Price; Royalty Payments and Reporting; Taxes
List Price. The “List Price” for an App for an Amazon Marketplace or a country is an amount that does not exceed, at any time, the lowest list price, suggested retail price, or actual price you set for that App (including any similar edition, version or release) for any Similar Service in a country served by that Amazon Marketplace (for Mobile Apps) or country (for PC Games and PC Software). If you do not provide us a List Price for an App in all currencies in which we make that App available for sale, we may generate List Prices for any currencies you have not provided based on a List Price you have provided for that App, and we may update any List Prices we generate from time to time as currency conversion rates change. List Prices are inclusive of any VAT or similar taxes included in the purchase price displayed to end users, but those taxes are excluded from the List Price for Royalty calculation purposes. For example, if the List Price for your App for an Amazon Marketplace is 1.15 Euro and we display prices to an end user of that Amazon Marketplace inclusive of 15% VAT, the List Price for Royalty calculation purposes for a sale to that end user is 1.00 Euro. You will update the List Price for each App as necessary to ensure that it meets the requirements of this section.
- Retail Price. The “Retail Price” for an App is the actual price charged to an end user of an App minus any Taxes and any separately stated fees or charges. We have sole discretion to set the Retail Price and other terms on which we sell Apps.
Payment Terms. Subject to the terms of this paragraph, we will pay you Royalties (i) for Mobile Apps (including Mobile App In-App Products), approximately 30 days after the end of the calendar month in which the applicable sale is made and (ii) for PC Games and PC Software (including PC Game and PC Software In-App Products), approximately 45 days after the end of the calendar month in which the applicable sale is made. At the time of payment, we will make available to you a report detailing sales of Apps and corresponding Royalties. All payments will be made via check, Electronic Funds Transfer (“EFT”) or other methods we designate in the Program Policies, in the currency in which the Apps were sold or other payment currency as set forth in the Program Policies. If we pay you for a sale in a currency other than the currency in which the sale was made, we will convert the Royalties from the currency in which the sale was made to the payment currency at an exchange rate that we or our bank determine, which may include fees and charges for the conversion. We are entitled to accrue and withhold payments, without interest, until the total amounts due to you (net of any tax withholding or deduction, as further described below) exceed the minimum payment thresholds set forth in the Program Policies. Depending on the country where you are located, we may require you to provide us with information for a valid bank account in your name for receiving EFT payments and, if you do not provide that information, we may withhold payments, without interest, until you do so and/or pay you via check and deduct a payment processing fee. You may not maintain any action or proceeding against us with respect to any report or payment unless you commence that action or suit within 6 months after the date the report or payment was due. If we pay you a Royalty on a sale and later issue a refund or credit to the end user for such sale (or receive a chargeback related to the sale), we may offset the amount of the Royalty we previously paid you against future Royalties or other amounts that would otherwise be payable to you under this Agreement, or require you to remit that amount to us. We may also withhold and offset any sums you owe to us against amounts that are payable to you. If a third party asserts that you did not have all rights required to make available an App to us, if we determine that you may be in breach of this Agreement, or if we have other claims against you, we are entitled to hold all Royalties pending resolution of such issue. If we determine that your account has been used to engage in deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or if you are unable to demonstrate that you have all necessary rights to the Content you provide us, then we may in our sole discretion permanently withhold Royalties to you. If after we have terminated your Program account you open a new Program account without our express permission, we will not owe you any Royalties under the new Program account. When this Agreement terminates, we may withhold all Royalties due for a period of three months from the date they would otherwise be payable, in order to ensure our ability to offset any end user refunds or other offsets to which we are entitled.
Taxes. Any Amazon Party selling Apps is responsible for collecting and remitting any taxes imposed on its sales of those Apps to end users. You are responsible for any income or other taxes due and payable resulting from any Amazon Party’s payments to you. Accordingly, unless otherwise stated, the amounts due to you hereunder are inclusive of any taxes that may apply to such payments. The Amazon Parties maintain the right, however, to deduct or withhold any applicable taxes that we may be legally obligated to deduct or withhold from amounts due from the Amazon Parties, and the amounts due, as reduced by such deductions or withholdings, will constitute full payment to you. If you fulfill any of your Content to end users, and if any relevant taxing authority considers that Content to be taxable and your fulfillment of that Content to be a sale to us that is subject to any sales, use, value added or similar taxes (“Fulfillment Transaction Taxes”), Amazon may provide you with an exemption certificate or equivalent information acceptable to the relevant taxing authority, in which case you will not charge or collect the Fulfillment Transaction Taxes covered by such certificate. You will be solely liable for, and will indemnify and hold us and our affiliates harmless against, all Fulfillment Transaction Taxes, if any, and against all interest, penalties, costs and expenses (including attorney’s fees) related to any such Fulfillment Transaction Taxes. If any taxing authority assesses or claims any tax liability on or against us or our affiliates with respect to any Fulfillment Transaction Taxes, we or our affiliates will control the defense against such assessment or claim (without limiting your obligation to indemnify and hold us and our affiliates harmless pursuant to this Section 5c). You will provide Amazon with any forms, documents or other certifications as may be requested by Amazon to satisfy any information reporting or tax obligations with respect to this Agreement.
App Availability; Withdrawal. We may determine in our discretion to make any App available through our Program. We may stop any transaction, or take other actions as needed to restrict access to or availability of any Content that does not comply with this Agreement or that otherwise might adversely affect end users. Any withdrawal of an App does not relieve you of responsibility to ensure the App complies with this Agreement or to perform other obligations under this Agreement. Subject to other terms of this Agreement, you may withdraw an App from further sale through our Program as of a specified date by giving us notice. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to stop selling the App within 10 business days after we receive such notice, and within 5 business days after such receipt in connection with a withdrawal request which you’ve designated as necessary because of an unexpected loss of (or third party claim related to) the rights required under this Agreement. You will immediately notify us if you unexpectedly lose such rights or become aware of a third party claim related to these rights. Any withdrawal by you will apply only to future end user purchases after the withdrawal date and not to purchases that have already occurred, unless we otherwise determine in our discretion.
Termination; Survival. If the Agreement is terminated, we will stop selling your Apps as of the date the termination takes effect. Also, unless we otherwise determine in our discretion, any termination or suspension of your participation in the Program will not affect further access, use, downloads or re-downloads of Apps by end users who have purchased the App before the termination or suspension takes effect. Sections 3 through 5 and 7 of this Schedule and any other provisions that, by their nature, are intended to survive, will survive any termination of the Agreement.

The terms of this Schedule apply if you submit any In-App Product for sale, distribution, or promotion through the Program.
Product Information. Your product descriptions for In-App Products must disclose how the In-App Product is used and any restrictions on end users’ use or access to the In-App Product. At the time you submit an In-App Product for inclusion in the Program, you must identify if it (a) makes content or services available to end users on a subscription basis (a “Subscription In-App Product”) or (b) is limited to a specific number of uses or is otherwise intended to be used up or consumed in the course of using the applicable software application or game (e.g., single use items or virtual coins in a game) (a “Consumable In-App Product”). Your product descriptions for Subscription In-App Products must disclose the content and services included in the subscription, the frequency with which new content will be delivered during the subscription period (if applicable), and whether or not content delivered during the subscription will continue to be accessible by the end user following the termination or expiration of the subscription (if applicable). Your product descriptions for Consumable In-App Products must disclose that the product is consumable and how the product is used and consumed in the App.
Fulfillment of In-App Products. You are responsible for fulfilling to end users all purchases of In-App Products. We may provide a hosting and delivery service to facilitate the fulfillment of certain types of In-App Products; however, you are responsible for providing all other hosting, delivery, and related services necessary to deliver and enable your In-App Products. Upon an end user’s purchase of an In-App Product, you will promptly deliver (if applicable) and enable the In-App Product for that end user. You must fulfill Subscription In-App Products throughout the entire subscription period purchased by the applicable end user. You will ensure that all In-App Products match the applicable product description and other Product Information, function as intended, and otherwise comply with the Agreement, including all Program Policies. You agree that the Royalties payable to you under this Agreement constitute full and complete compensation for all hosting, delivery, and other services you perform or provide in connection with the sale and fulfillment of In-App Products.
Royalties for In-App Products. Royalties for In-App Products will be calculated and paid as provided in the Distribution Schedule. However, no Royalty is due for (a) Subscription In-App Products that we make available to end users at no charge as part of free trial subscriptions or other promotional offers that you approve or (b) Subscription In-App Products that are intended to be accessed or used within Mobile Apps listed in our News or Magazine categories (or similar or successor categories) that we make available to end users at no charge as part of free trial subscriptions or other promotional offers of up to 30 days (or any longer period you approve). We may auto-renew end users’ purchases of Subscription In-App Products, and for sales of Subscription In-App Products to renewing subscribers in accordance with this paragraph. For PC Games (including PC Game In-App Products) and PC Software (including PC Software In-App Products) your Royalty will be calculated based on the current Retail Price; for renewals of Subscription In-App Products for all other types of Apps your Royalty will be calculated based on the lower of (i) the then current List Price and (ii) the List Price in effect at the time the applicable end user first subscribed.
No sale of physical goods; Prohibited products. You will only submit as In-App Products digital products, content, and services intended to be accessed or used within your software applications and games. You will not submit as an In-App Product any physical good or any other product, content, or service intended to be delivered or fulfilled outside of the applicable software application or game (though the sale of digital content accessible both inside and outside your software application or game is permissible), or that otherwise violates our Program Policies (including any list of prohibited in-app products we establish). The restrictions in this section do not limit your use of the Amazon Mobile Associates API (defined in the Amazon Mobile Associates Schedule).
Additional Requirements – Mobile App In-App Products Only. You may not fulfill Mobile App In-App Products by delivering additional executable code to the applicable software application or game (and you will not submit for inclusion in the Program any Mobile App In-App Product that requires the delivery of additional executable code). You will ensure that all Mobile App In-App Products (other than Consumable In-App Products) purchased by an end user are delivered to and usable on all copies of the applicable Mobile App installed by that end user on any device (including all copies of the Mobile App installed or reinstalled in the future); however, for Subscription In-App Products, if your product description clearly discloses (at the time of an end user’s initial purchase) that the subscription content and/or services will be available only while the end user has an active subscription, you are not required to deliver and enable the use of the subscription content and services for that end user after the end user’s subscription has ended.
Survival. Following any termination of the Agreement, we may continue to auto-renew existing subscribers’ purchases of Subscription In-App Products for up to 90 days (the “Subscription Sell-Off Period”).

Amazon Underground Schedule
The terms of this Schedule apply if you submit any Mobile App for inclusion in Amazon Underground. “Amazon Underground” is a program that allows the purchase of certain Mobile Apps, and all In-App Products offered in those Mobile Apps, for free. Amazon Europe Core S.a.r.l. is an Amazon Party for purposes of this Schedule.
Amazon Underground Apps. You may submit for inclusion in Amazon Underground any of your Mobile Apps that meet the Eligibility Requirements below. We retain sole discretion over which Amazon Underground Apps we make available through Amazon Underground. Amazon Underground Apps and In-App Products end users purchase through Amazon Underground will be deemed to have been “purchased” for purposes of this Agreement (other than for purposes of calculating Royalties).
Eligibility Requirements. You must ensure any Amazon Underground App meets the following requirements, both at the time you submit it for inclusion in Amazon Underground and throughout any period we make it available for purchase through Amazon Underground (the “Eligibility Requirements”):
The Amazon Underground App must be available through at least one Similar Service;
The Amazon Underground App must (i) be available for purchase for a fee on all Similar Services on which it is available or (ii) contain in-app products that are available for purchase for a fee on all Similar Services on which it is available;
The Amazon Underground App must not contain any Subscription In-App Products;
The Content made available through the Amazon Underground App must be substantially similar to or better than that offered to end users of the Amazon Underground App on all Similar Services on which it is available; and
The Amazon Underground App must be available for distribution through Amazon Underground on non-Amazon devices.
You will promptly notify us if, at any time, any Amazon Underground App no longer meets the Eligibility Requirements.
Subject to your compliance with the terms of this Agreement and this Schedule, the responsible Amazon Party will pay you Royalties for each Amazon Underground App calculated as follows (in lieu of the Royalties that would otherwise be payable under the Distribution Schedule): (i) the number of minutes that Amazon Underground App is used by end users (determined in accordance with Section 4 of this Schedule) while it is available for purchase through Amazon Underground and during the Wind-Down Period multiplied by (ii) the applicable Per-Minute Rate (“Underground Royalties”). The “Wind-Down Period” for an Amazon Underground App is the six-month period beginning on the date that Amazon Underground App ceases to be available for purchase through Amazon Underground.
The “Per-Minute Rate” applicable to each Amazon Marketplace is:
Amazon.com $0.0020 Amazon.co.uk £0.0013 Amazon.de €0.0018 Amazon.fr €0.0018 Amazon.it €0.0018 Amazon.es €0.0018
We reserve the right to change the Per-Minute Rate at any time in our discretion. Changes to the Per-Minute Rate will be effective 15 days after we post them or otherwise notify you of them.
Subject to the payment terms of this Agreement, we will pay you Underground Royalties approximately 30 days after the end of each calendar month in which you earn Underground Royalties. If we pay you Underground Royalties and later determine any portion of those Royalties was not due to legitimate use by end users, we may offset that portion of the previously paid Underground Royalties against future Royalties or other amounts that would otherwise be payable to you, or require you to remit that amount to us.
Underground Royalties constitute full and complete compensation for all purchases of Amazon Underground Apps and all purchases of In-App Products within Amazon Underground Apps. You are not entitled to any other Royalties or compensation for those purchases or for the usage of Amazon Underground Apps by end users.
Amazon Underground App Usage Measurement. Underground Royalties will be calculated based solely on usage analytics we collect and will be net of any usage we determine resulted from sources other than legitimate use by end users (such as from bots or automated software). For purposes of calculating Underground Royalties, an Amazon Underground App is “used” only while it is in the foreground and the device is actively being used by an end user (and not, for instance, while the Amazon Underground App is running in the background or the device is locked). Our determination of the usage of your Amazon Underground App will be the sole measurement of usage for purposes of calculating Underground Royalties, even if it differs from usage data you may collect. In addition, Underground Royalties are due only on usage by customers in countries where Amazon Underground is available and on devices where Amazon Underground is available.
You authorize us to modify and add to your Amazon Underground Apps so that we can present advertisements or other notifications to end users at the time they open or close Amazon Underground Apps. We will retain all revenue associated with any such advertising or other notifications we present to end users.
You authorize us to add an indicator (such as a “badge” or “sash”) to the logos of Amazon Underground Apps to indicate their availability through Amazon Underground.
You will not engage in behavior intended to artificially increase usage of Amazon Underground Apps, interfere with or alter any usage or other analytics we collect from Amazon Underground Apps, or interfere or alter any advertising or other notifications we present to end users of Amazon Underground Apps.
Other than through our In-App Purchasing API, you may not make any digital products, content, or services intended to be accessed or used within the Amazon Underground App available for purchase in your Amazon Underground App or include in your Amazon Underground App any Content that facilitates charging end users a fee in connection with your Amazon Underground App. If your Amazon Underground App contains In-App Products, those In-App Products will be available for free to end users and you will not receive any Royalties for the purchase of those In-App Products by end users.
Withdrawal from Amazon Underground.
Withdrawal Process. You may withdraw an Amazon Underground App from inclusion in Amazon Underground as of a specified date by giving us at least 10 business days’ prior notice. However, you may not withdraw an Amazon Underground App, materially reduce the number of countries or devices on which it is available, or terminate this Agreement during the first three months the Amazon Underground App is included in Amazon Underground, unless (a) we decrease the Per-Minute Rate during that time period (in which case you may withdraw the Amazon Underground App as of the date the lower Per-Minute Rate goes into effect by giving us at least 5 business days’ prior notice) or (b) you withdraw the Amazon Underground App (and any similar version of the Amazon Underground App) from distribution through all Similar Services.
Effect of Withdrawal. We may continue to provide existing end users with access to all Amazon Underground Apps they purchased through Amazon Underground, along with any In-App Products they purchased through those Amazon Underground Apps, after those Amazon Underground Apps cease to be available for purchase through Amazon Underground. You must (i) continue providing all services and support (including server-based features) necessary to enable an Amazon Underground App’s intended functionality to end users during the Wind-Down Period (unless you discontinue providing such services and support for all versions of that Amazon Underground App that are made available on all Similar Services) and (ii) not remove or disable functionality from any Amazon Underground App or take any other action to prevent end users from accessing or using an Amazon Underground App or any In-App Products they purchased through that Amazon Underground App.

Such revenues exclude any sales or similar taxes paid by end users. Amazon Fees are due only for sales for which you have received final payment from or on behalf of an end user.

At the time of payment, you will make available to us a report detailing, for each Developer-Hosted PC Game/Software, the number of end users for such Developer-Hosted PC Game/Software, the aggregate gross revenue you receive from Developer-Sold Items, and corresponding Amazon Fees. All payments will be made in the currency designated in the Program Policies. You will make payments to us via EFT or other methods we designate in the Program Policies.

Taxes on Developer-Sold Items. You are responsible for collecting and remitting any taxes imposed on your sales of Developer-Sold Items to end users. We may charge and you will pay applicable Federal, state, or local sales or use taxes, consumption taxes, or value added taxes that we are legally obligated to charge for the services we provide, provided that such taxes are stated on the original invoice that we provide to you. However, you may provide us with an exemption certificate or equivalent information for those taxes acceptable to the relevant taxing authority, in which case, we shall not charge and/or collect the taxes covered by such certificate.

Firefly. “Firefly” is our feature that allows end users to identify products, music, movies, TV shows, and other content from images and audio captured by their device.

Plugins also display labels in the Firefly interface (“Labels”) that allow end users to initiate actions in your App (for instance, launching your App to display upcoming concerts for the artist of a song identified through Firefly).
Facets. The Firefly API categorizes each Identified Item and provides information about the item organized into one or more facets (“Facets”). Facets for an Identified Item indicate what type of item it is (for instance, a book, song, phone number, or Amazon product) and certain information about the item (for instance, a book Facet includes information like the book’s title, author, publisher, release date, and ISBN). Each Plugin must only access Facets directly related to functionality provided by the Plugin. You are responsible for configuring the Firefly API filters to limit the Facets your Plugins access.
Your Plugins. When your Plugin accesses a Facet for an Identified Item, your Plugin must display a Label for that Identified Item to the end user (even if the Label simply indicates no action is available in your Plugin for that item). Your Labels may only initiate actions that provide end users experiences that make direct use of the Facet information for the applicable Identified Item.
Use of Firefly Information. Other than in response to an end user initiating an action for a particular Identified Item via your Label, you may not (a) use any information about Identified Items (including any Facet information) for any purpose other than to display your Label or (b) retain or transfer any information about Identified Items (including any Facet information). Without limiting your obligations under Section 4 of the Agreement, you are solely responsible for obtaining any necessary consents from end users regarding your collection, use, transfer, and storage of information provided through the Firefly API.
Prohibited Uses. Without our prior written approval, you may not build Plugins that enable, or otherwise use the Firefly API in connection with, any marketing or sale of physical merchandise.

Invocation Name. We may allow end users to use particular words or sounds to initiate and interact with your Alexa Skill (an “Invocation Name”).

4. Customer's Obligations.
a. Compliance. Customer is solely responsible for End Users’ compliance with this License Agreement. Customer acknowledges and agrees that prior to an End User using the Services, each End User will accept, or Customer will accept on behalf of the End User (and make Lookout a third-party beneficiary thereof) the terms and conditions herein, and this License Agreement will govern the End Users use of the Services.

Without limiting the foregoing, Customer will provide End Users with prior notice of the scope of the Services, including Lookout’s collection and Customer’s access to End User Data.

Customer hereby agrees to be bound by and fully comply with all such licenses, and any licenses granted hereunder shall not alter any duties or obligations Customer may have under such open source licenses; however, the disclaimer of warranty and limitation of liability provisions in this Agreement will apply to all such software in the Services.
8. Customer Warranty.
As a condition to Customer’s and its End Users’ use of the Services, Customer represents, warrants and covenants that Customer will not use the Services for any improper or illegal purposes, including but not limited to:
a. Infringement of the intellectual property or proprietary rights, or rights of publicity of any third party;
b. Violation of local, state, and/or federal laws, regulations, or ordinances, including but not limited to all applicable export laws and the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and similar foreign anti-bribery laws;
c. Compromising information and data security or confidentiality;
d. Integrating information that has been obtained in violation of any contractual agreement or local, state, or federal law, regulation, or ordinance; and/or
e. Violation of privacy or constitutional rights of any End User, or any other individuals or entities.
Customer, not Lookout, remains solely responsible for all information or material in any form or format that Customer imports, uses, publishes, or otherwise disseminates using, or in connection with, the Services (“Content”). Customer acknowledges that all Content that Customer accesses through use of the Services is accessed at Customer’s own risk and Customer will be solely responsible for any damage or liability to any party resulting from such access.
9. Third Party Requests.
Customer acknowledges and agrees that the Customer is responsible for responding to a request from a third party for records relating to Customer's or an End User's use of, or Content contained within, the Services ("Third-Party Request"). If Lookout receives a Third-Party Request (including but not limited to criminal or civil subpoenas or other legal process requesting Customer or End User data), Lookout will, to the extent allowed by the law and by the terms of the Third-Party Request, direct the Third Party to Customer to pursue the Third-Party Request. Lookout retains the right to respond to Third Party requests for Customer data where Lookout determines, in its sole discretion, that it is required by law to comply with such a Third-Party request.
10. Support and Maintenance.
The support and maintenance services (if any) are detailed in the support package selected by Customer in the Order or are otherwise attached as an Exhibit to the Agreement.
Customer will, at its own expense, be responsible for providing support to its End Users regarding issues that are particular to its End Users' access of Enterprise Services. Customer will use commercially reasonable efforts to resolve any such support issues before escalating them to Lookout or its distributor. If Customer cannot resolve a support issue as set forth above, Customer's Administrator may escalate the issue to Lookout or its partner, and Lookout or its partner will use commercially reasonable efforts to work with Customer to resolve the issue.
Each party undertakes not to disclose to any third party any information obtained from the other party that is designated as proprietary or confidential or which, by its nature, is apparent that it should be regarded as confidential or proprietary ("Confidential Information"), except that Lookout may access, disclose and share such Confidential Information of Customer and its End Users to the extent necessary in order to provide the Services hereunder. Each party agrees that it shall use the same degree of care that it utilizes to protect its own confidential information of a similar nature, but in no event less than reasonable care, to protect the secrecy of and avoid disclosure or use of Confidential Information of the other party in order to prevent it from falling into the public domain or the possession of persons other than those persons authorized under this Agreement to have any such information. The confidentiality obligation in this Section does not apply to such information that (a) was lawfully in the receiving party’s possession before receipt from the disclosing party; (b) is or becomes a matter of public knowledge through no fault of the receiving party; or (c) was independently developed or discovered by the receiving party without the benefit of any Confidential Information of the disclosing party. Furthermore, Confidential Information of the other party may be disclosed insofar as such disclosure is necessary to allow a party to comply with applicable law, with a decision by a court of law or to comply with requests from government agencies that such party determines require disclosure, but then only after first notifying the other party of the required disclosure, unless such notification is prohibited. Customer shall promptly notify Lookout of any actual or suspected misuse or unauthorized disclosure of Lookout’s Confidential Information.
Customer is responsible and shall be liable for any breaches of this Section and any disclosure or misuse of any Confidential Information by Customer’s employees or agents (or any other person or entity to which Customer is permitted to disclose Confidential Information pursuant to this Section).
The foregoing confidentiality obligation survives termination of this Agreement for a period of five (5) years; provided that Customer’s obligations hereunder shall survive and continue in perpetuity after termination with respect to any Confidential Information that is a trade secret under applicable law.
12. Intellectual Property Rights.
Except for the limited license rights expressly provided herein, this Agreement does not grant either party any rights, implied or otherwise, to the other's intellectual property or any rights to use the Lookout trademarks, logos, domain names, or other brand features. No title to or ownership of or other right in or to the Services or software provided by Lookout to access the Services is transferred to Customer or its End Users under this Agreement. Specifically, Lookout retains all rights, title and interest in and to the Enterprise Services, source code, and any other related documentation or material provided by Lookout (including without limitation, all patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret, and other intellectual property rights embodied in the foregoing) and all copies, modifications, and derivative works thereof. The Enterprise Services are licensed and not sold, and no ownership rights are being conveyed to Customer under this Agreement.
Lookout may identify Customer as a Lookout customer in promotional materials. Customer may request that Lookout stop doing so by submitting an email to email@example.com at any time.
If Customer or its End Users provide Lookout with any suggestions, enhancement request, recommendation, correction, or other feedback, Customer and its End Users grant Lookout a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free license to use any such feedback without restriction or compensation. If Lookout accepts Customer’s or its End User’s submission, Lookout does not waive any rights to use similar or related ideas or feedback previously known to Lookout, developed by Lookout employees, or obtained from sources other than Customer.
THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS.” TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY STATED IN THIS AGREEMENT, LOOKOUT MAKES NO WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. NO ORAL OR WRITTEN INFORMATION OR ADVICE GIVEN BY EITHER PARTY HERETO, ITS AGENTS OR EMPLOYEES SHALL CREATE A WARRANTY OR IN ANY WAY INCREASE THE SCOPE OF THE WARRANTIES SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT.
NOTWITHSTANDING ANY PROVISION TO THE CONTRARY, LOOKOUT DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICES WILL MEET ALL REQUIREMENTS OF CUSTOMER OR ANY END USER, OR THAT THE OPERATION OF THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR FREE, OR THAT ALL DEFECTS IN THE SERVICES WILL BE CORRECTED. FURTHER, LOOKOUT IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DEFECT OR ERROR RESULTING FROM THE MODIFICATION, MISUSE OR DAMAGE OF ANY OF THE SERVICES NOT DELIVERED BY LOOKOUT. LOOKOUT DOES NOT WARRANT AND SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY WITH RESPECT TO THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE OR OTHER NON-LOOKOUT SERVICES.
a. By Customer. Customer will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Lookout from and against all liabilities, damages, and costs (including settlement costs and reasonable attorneys' fees) arising out of a claim regarding Customer or Customer’s End Users’ (i) misuse of the Services, (ii) non-performance of any obligation herein or in any other written agreement between the parties, (iii) breach of any part of this Agreement, the Lookout Terms of Service or applicable laws, (iv) misuse of End User data; (v) violation of any privacy rights or other rights of the other; or (vi) action, inaction or negligence that results in a circumstance(s) covered by a Indemnity Exclusion.

The foregoing indemnification obligation for Lookout shall not apply in the following circumstances (each, an “Indemnity Exclusion”): (1) if the Services are modified by any party other Lookout, but only to the extent the alleged infringement would not have occurred but for such modification; (2) if the Services are modified by Lookout at the request of Customer, but only to the extent the alleged infringement would not have occurred but for such modification; (3) if the Services are combined with other non-Lookout products or processes not authorized by Lookout; but only to the extent the alleged infringement would not have occurred but for such combination; (4) to any unauthorized use of the Services; (5) to any superseded release of the Products if the infringement would have been avoided by the use of a current release of the Services that Lookout has provided to Customer prior to the date of the alleged infringement; or (6) to any third party software code contained within the Services.
c. Possible Infringement. If Lookout believes the Services infringe or may be alleged to infringe a third party's Intellectual Property Rights, then Lookout may at it sole discretion: (i) obtain the right for Customer, at Lookout's expense, to continue using the Services; (ii) provide a non-infringing replacement with substantially similar functionality; or (iii) modify the Services so that they no longer infringe.
d. Indemnity Procedures. The party seeking indemnification will promptly notify the other party of the claim within twenty (20) days of receiving notice of such claim and cooperate with the other party in defending the claim. The indemnifying party has full control and authority over the defense, except that: (i) any settlement requiring the party seeking indemnification to admit liability requires prior written consent, not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed and (ii) the other party may join in the defense with its own counsel at its own expense. THE INDEMNITIES ABOVE ARE LOOKOUT AND CUSTOMER'S ONLY REMEDY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT FOR VIOLATION BY THE OTHER PARTY OF A THIRD PARTY'S INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS.
