3. Subject and Prices
3.1. Upon acceptance of these GTZR and placing by Reseller of the first and following Purchase Order(s) and/or Online Order(s) (together or either one called “Order(s)”), Licensor will provide Reseller with a Reseller License for the respective number of End-Point Licenses for the respective Product(s) specified therein, under the conditions of these GTZR.
3.2. Reseller shall pay to Licensor the price specified in each Order within the term noted therein.
3.3. Receipt of the relevant payment is a prior condition for provision of a Reseller License for the number of End-Point Licenses under any Order. The Reseller License shall automatically arise, separately for the respective number of End-Point Licenses specified in each Order, at the moment of receiving by Licensor of the full payment for those Licenses specified in the same Order.
3.4. By signing a Purchase Order or placing an Online Order Reseller agrees to the provisions thereof and undertakes the respective payment and other obligations provided therein. Purchase Orders become binding only after their signing by both Parties, and no rights or obligations shall ensue from them otherwise.
3.5. Unless otherwise agreed with a specific Order, the price applicable for one End-Point License will depend on the number of End-Point Licenses ordered by Reseller and will be determined according to a volume-price discounts reference table provided in a Zoiper distributor offer, a Purchase Order, or in a respective section of the System. Discount rates, levels and conditions may be unilaterally amended by Zoiper at any moment.
3.6. Reseller is advised that the online shop available to Licensor’s End-Users on the Website is not intended for purchasing of Reseller Licenses and does not allow the calculation of a reseller discount for the purchases. Any orders made by Reseller using Licensor’s Website functionality, and not the System, are made at Reseller’s own responsibility and will not be subject to refund or to any discounts or compensations of any kind.
4. Rights and obligations
4.1. Licensor creates for Reseller a reseller account in Licensor’s the System and provides Reseller with a link and instructions for its use. Through this account Licensor provides Reseller functionality allowing Reseller to review the status and manage purchased End-Point Licenses, including to provide them to End-Users, to place Online Orders for new End-Point Licenses, to access information and to perform other actions as available in the System. Licensor reserves the right to change the appearance, functionality and availability of the System, as well as to terminate the provision of the System.
4.2. Reseller is provided with automatically generated credentials (username and password) for access to the System. Licensor has no access to these credentials and Reseller is solely responsible for their safekeeping, as well as for any and all actions performed in the System with the usage of these credentials.
4.3. Reseller provides End-Point Licenses to its clients by creating for them respective user accounts in the System and assigning one or more End-Point Licenses to those accounts.

4.5. End-Point Licenses which have been used (installed) by the End-User may be reset, when a re-installation is necessary. Such a reset will not restore the used End-Point License for provision of the same license by Reseller, but allow the End-User to alone make a new installation of the same End-Point License (for example, in order to use the Product on a new device) without the need to receive a new End-Point License from Reseller. A reset can only be made in case of online activation of the Product and only once within a particular week. If achieving the purpose of the reset was not successful and another reset is needed within the same week, Licensor’s sales representatives can be contacted in order to assist with the situation.
4.6. To provide its clients with Test Licenses, Reseller can contact Licensor’s sales representatives and receive a limited amount of Test Licenses. Test Licenses are valid for fourteen (14) days from their assigning by Reseller to the respective End-User account and are not restored back to Reseller after their expiration. Test Licenses may be provided to each End-User account on up to two (2) separate occasions and only if the respective End-User has not been assigned any regular End-Point License. Upon assigning of a regular End-Point License all active Test Licenses provided to the same End-User account expire immediately.
4.7. In the course of provision of End-Point Licenses to its clients, Reseller shall observe any and all legal requirements and restrictions which might be applicable to its activities, and shall not be allowed to make any statements or perform any activities which might mislead potential customers with regard to the nature, price or other characteristics of Licensor’s Products and/or Services or otherwise mislead them, or perform any activities which might damage in any way the commercial or other reputation and good name of Licensor.

Reseller is solely responsible for organizing and managing the payments and payment methods offered to its clients, as well as for any and all other aspects of its relations with such clients, including without limitation refund requests.
