Service Orders are subject to acceptance by Progress (or if applicable the Progress Channel Partner); such acceptance is deemed to occur when Progress (or if applicable the Progress Channel Partner) agrees in writing to accept your Service Order or issues you Activation Instructions for the Modulus Platform. You understand and agree that by submitting the Service Order and consenting to the terms of this Agreement, you have made a binding selection of the type of Service Plan to be provided to you and all associated prices and policies related to the Modulus Platform. The Service Plan you select may limit the number of Servos that you are permitted to use on the Modulus Platform.
3.2 Each Service Order submitted by you and accepted by Progress or the Progress Channel Partner (as applicable) is incorporated into and is subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement; provided, however, that in the event of conflict between the terms contained in the Service Order and the terms in this Agreement, the terms contained in this Agreement shall control.
3.3 If you use a Third Party Provider, you represent and warrant that you maintain exclusive control over the uploading and management of the Modulus Platform within the Third Party Provider’s cloud-based infrastructure and that the Third Party Provider will not be permitted to access or use the Modulus Platform.

If you are legally entitled to an exemption from any sales, use, or similar transaction tax, you are responsible for providing Progress (or if applicable the Progress Channel Partner) with legally-sufficient tax exemption certificates for each taxing jurisdiction. Tax on charges under your account occurring after the date of receipt of a valid tax exemption certificate(s) will be excluded. If any deduction or withholding is required by law, you will notify Progress (or if applicable the Progress Channel Partner) and will pay any additional amounts necessary to ensure that the net amount that Progress receives, after any deduction and withholding, equals the amount Progress would have received if no deduction or withholding had been required. Additionally, you will provide Progress (or if applicable, the Progress Channel Partner) with documentation showing that the withheld and deducted amounts have been paid to the relevant taxing authority.

16.2 Progress will promptly notify you of any claim subject to Section 16.1, but Progress’ failure to promptly notify you will only affect your obligations under Section 16.1 to the extent that Progress’ failure prejudices your ability to defend the claim. You may: (a) use counsel of your own choosing (subject to Progress’ written consent) to defend against any claim; and (b) settle the claim as you deem appropriate, provided that you obtain Progress’ prior written consent before entering into any settlement.
