TRIELLA Partnership Program Agreement

This Partner Program Agreement (the "Agreement"), is entered into on the date on which you confirmed your acceptance by and between TRIELLA Corp., a Canadian Corporation with a place of business at 1 Richmond Street West, Suite 700, Toronto, ON M5H 3W4 ("Company"), and the party submitting the Partner Application Form ("Finder", and together with Company, the "Parties", and each, a "Party").

WHEREAS, Company is an IT firm company that provides IT services, support, IT infrastructure, managed services and cybersecurity solutions (the "Services"); and 

WHEREAS, Company desires to engage Finder to introduce to Company any potential sales leads for the Services ("Clients"), and Finder desires to accept such engagement.

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises set forth above and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the Parties agree as follows:

Engagement.

  1. Company hereby engages Finder, and Finder hereby accepts such engagement, to act as Company's non-exclusive finder with respect to sales of the Services to Customers in Canada (the "Territory") during the Term, solely in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Company may in its sole discretion solicit Customers directly and engage any other person or company to sell the Services. 

  2. Finder shall introduce Company to Customers and perform such other responsibilities as reasonably directed by Company, including forwarding sales literature and samples provided by Company (“Referral”), but shall not participate in any sales meetings or negotiations nor have authority to offer or sell the Services to any Customer. 

  3. The prices, terms, and conditions under which Company offers or sells any Services shall be determined by Company in its sole discretion. Company shall have the authority to control all discussions and negotiations regarding any proposed or actual offering or sale of Services. Nothing in this Agreement shall obligate Company to actually offer or sell any Services or consummate any transaction with any Customer. Company may terminate any negotiations or discussions at any time and has the right not to proceed with any sale of Services without any liability or obligation to pay compensation to Finder under 2 or otherwise.

  4. Finder shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Company, and any of its directors, officers, and shareholders, against any and all losses, damages, liabilities, deficiencies, claims, actions, judgments, settlements, interest, awards, penalties, fines, costs, or expenses of whatever kind, including legal fees, whether by in-house or external legal counsel, fees, and the costs of enforcing any right to indemnification under this Agreement, incurred by Company, arising out or resulting from any claim of a third party related to its obligations under this Agreement.

Compensation and Payment. 

  1. In consideration for the services rendered by Finder hereunder, Company shall pay to Finder compensation ("Finder's Fee") equal to a percentage of the Purchase Price (as defined below) made by Company from each Customer. To receive a Finder’s Fee, Company and the Customer must enter into a subscription agreement for the Services within three (3) months from the date of the introduction (“Compensable Customer”).

"Purchase Price" means any payments actually received by Company from a Compensable Customer for the net subscription fees (exclusive of sales tax, implementation fees, and after applying any discounts, credits, rebates, and adjustments) for up to one year for the Compensable Customer’s first order of Company’s Services. For certainty, Purchase Price does not include any amounts received for renewals, additional sales, or service feature add-ons. 

  1. Payments in the TRIELLA Partner Program are handled by Triella Corp. (the “Payment Provider”). In order to receive payments under this Agreement, Finder must create and maintain an account with Payment Provider in the Payment Provider’s online or app-based dashboard (“Payment Provider”), which is provided pursuant to terms directly between the Payment Provider and Finder. Finder must keep all information updated and complete within the Payment Provider to receive proper payments. Payments returned due to incorrect payment email addresses or other incorrect information will not be returned. The Payment Provider will reflect payment history to Finder, and the parties agree that: (a) the data shown in the Payment Provider will govern payments to be made, subject to Company’s right to correct errors based on its own records and (b) records and payments will be deemed complete, incontestable, and final twelve (12) months after the applicable Successful Referral occurs.

  2. No Finder's Fee shall be owed hereunder for any sale to a Customer if Company had a previous relationship or contact with that Customer. 

  3. The Finder’s Fee will be clawed back from the Partner if the Compensable Customer churns within six (6) months of entering into a subscription agreement for the Services.

Referral Procedure.

Referrals shall be made by Finder in accordance with the process provided by the Company through its authorized representatives. 

Independent Contractor.

For certainty, any use of the term “partner” in this Agreement or in connection with the relationship created by this Agreement shall in no way constitute, or be deemed to constitute, the Parties entering into any form of partnership, joint venture, common enterprise or any other legal structure or arrangement other than a contractual relationship. Finder has no authority (and shall not hold itself out as having authority) to bind Company and Finder shall not make any agreements, representations, warranties, or guarantees on Company's behalf without Company's prior written consent. Finder shall take all commercially reasonable steps to preserve and protect the goodwill and reputation of Company. Without limiting the above, Finder will not be eligible to participate in any vacation, group medical or life insurance, disability, profit sharing, or retirement benefits, or any other fringe benefits or benefit plans offered by Company to its employees, and Company will not be responsible for withholding or paying any income, payroll or other federal, provincial, or territorial taxes, making any Canada Pension contributions, insurance contributions, including unemployment or disability, or obtaining worker's compensation insurance on Finder's behalf. Finder shall be responsible for, and shall indemnify Company against, all such taxes or contributions, including penalties and interest. Finder shall be solely responsible for all costs or expenses that it may incur in the performance of its activities under this Agreement. Any persons employed or engaged by Finder in connection with the performance of Finder's obligations hereunder shall be Finder's employees or contractors and Finder shall be fully responsible for them and indemnify Company against any claims made by or on behalf of any such employees or contractors.
