The fees paid by you will also cover your Affiliate(s) that are eligible for the Solution Partner Program. Affiliate(s) means, for a party, any other entity that controls, is controlled by, or under common control with, the party. All fees will be due and payable net 30 days and will be measured from the date of invoice. All invoices will be delivered electronically.

Adobe may charge interest at a monthly rate equal to the lesser of 1% per month or the maximum rate permitted by applicable law on any overdue fees, from the due date until the date the overdue amount (plus applicable interest) is paid in full. You must provide clear indication with your checks (or other form of payment) as to which invoices (or portions thereof) the payment should be applied. Alternatively, these payment details can be emailed to sjar@adobe.com no later than the date of payment.

If you fail to pay any amount due under this Agreement according to the payment terms contained herein, Adobe will send a reminder notice. If you fail to pay within 15 days of the date of the reminder notice, Adobe may, in its sole discretion, setoff such unpaid amounts against any benefits to which you are entitled (e.g., deal registration) and/or terminate your participation in the Solution Partner Program.

If you believe in good faith that Adobe has incorrectly billed you, you must contact Adobe in writing within 30 days of the invoice date, specifying the error. Unless you have correctly notified Adobe of the dispute, you must reimburse Adobe’s reasonable collection costs. You must pay the undisputed portions of Adobe’s invoice as required by this Solution Partner Program Guide.

The prices in the Program Fees Section do not include applicable taxes. Adobe will invoice you for any applicable taxes, and you must pay these taxes. Where applicable, you must provide a tax-exemption claim to Adobe before placing an order. If you are required to withhold income taxes from your payment to Adobe, you agree to send Adobe an official tax receipt within 60 days of payment to Adobe.
