FLOWHUB MASTER SERVICE AGREEMENT
This Master Service Agreement (“Agreement”) will apply to the sale of Services from Flowhub, LLC (“Flowhub”) to its customer (“Customer”), unless Flowhub and Customer enter into or have entered into another agreement regarding the Services contemplated herein, and such agreement is in effect as of the Effective Date (“Existing Agreement”), in which case the terms and conditions of the Existing Agreement will govern the sale of those Flowhub Services. Absent an Existing Agreement, this Agreement is effective as of the date an Order Form or Purchase Order is executed (“Effective Date”).
1.1 Order Forms. During the Term, and subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and Customer’s payment of all applicable Fees, Flowhub will provide to Customer the Services identified in one or more Order Forms executed by both parties (each, an “Order Form”). All Order Forms are incorporated into and made part of this Agreement. To the extent of any conflict between this Agreement and an Order Form, this Agreement will control, except to the extent the Order Form expressly identifies a provision of this Agreement to be superseded.
1.2 License. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, including Customer’s payment of all applicable Fees and all applicable limits specified in each Order Form, during the Term of this Agreement Flowhub grants to Customer a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable right to: (a) access and use the Platform as specified in the applicable Order Form; and (b) install and use the App solely to operate, and as installed on, those Nugs specified in the applicable Order Form. All access to and use of the Services will be solely by Customer for Customer’s own internal business purposes and at all times in accordance with this Agreement and any applicable separate agreement or documentation accompanying the Services or provided by Flowhub.
1.3 Restrictions. In addition to the other restrictions in this Agreement, Customer will not and will not permit any third party to: (a) modify, make derivative works of, reverse engineer, disassemble, decompile, or otherwise attempt to discover the source code for the Services; (b) sublicense, distribute, sell, convey, assign, pledge, or otherwise transfer or in any way encumber the Services or any portion thereof; (c) use, evaluate or view the Services for the purpose of designing, modifying, or otherwise creating any environment, program, or infrastructure or any portion thereof, which performs functions similar to the functions performed by the Services; (d) utilize the Services in any way that could damage, disable, overburden, impair or compromise Flowhub’s systems or security or interfere with other users; or (e) remove or alter any trademark, logo, copyright, or other proprietary notices, legends, symbols, or labels in the Services.
1.4 NUGs. Flowhub will deliver any Nugs within a reasonable time after execution of the applicable Order Form to the location specified in the Order Form. Title to the Nugs will remain with Flowhub and Customer acquires no right, title, or interest in the Nugs. Customer will pay a monthly recurring Fee, at the rate specified in the Order Form, to possess and use the Nugs during the Term. Customer will, at its expense, keep and maintain the Nugs in a good state of repair, normal wear and tear excepted, and will use the Nugs only for their intended purpose and in accordance with Flowhub’s instructions. Customer will bear all risk of loss, damage, destruction, and theft of or to the Nugs from any cause whatsoever (“Loss”) until the Nugs have been returned to Flowhub and will notify Flowhub in writing within ten (10) days of any Loss. To secure its obligations under this Section, Customer will pay a security deposit, at the rate specified in the Order Form, which Flowhub may use, in whole or in part, as reimbursement for any Loss. Customer shall not remove the Nugs from the address specified on the Order Form without Flowhub’s prior written approval. Customer shall allow Flowhub to enter Customer’s premises at all reasonable times to locate and inspect the state and condition of the Nugs.
1.5 Support. Flowhub will provide the support services described in Exhibit A. Any updates, upgrades, new versions, or new releases of or to the Services provided by Flowhub will be treated as part of the “Services” for purposes of this Agreement.
1.6 Use of the Services. Customer may grant access and authority in relation to the Services to employees or contractors of Customer’s organization (“Users”), provided that Customer will remain responsible and liable for all actions or omissions of its Users in connection with the Services. Customer may purchase implementation, configuration, and support Services from Flowhub but, notwithstanding any such Services, Customer will be solely responsible for: (a) configuring or determining how the Services will be configured for Customer’s use, including but not limited to product labeling, automatic patient verification, patient management, inventory management, staff management, delivery management, point of sale, online ordering, and Tax withholding calculations, in compliance with Applicable Law; (b) providing for and maintaining any systems, software, hardware, web browser and internet service necessary to access and use the Services; and (c) ensuring Customer’s employees, contractors, and any other person interacting with the Services is legally able to do so in Customer’s jurisdiction. Flowhub may provide Customer professional, advisory, or support Services regarding the foregoing, but any such Services will not constitute legal advice and Customer’s use of the Services will not create an attorney client relationship between Customer and Flowhub. Flowhub makes no representation, warranty, or covenant that the content available on or through the Services is appropriate in every or any jurisdiction and recommends that Customer consult with independent counsel regarding Customer’s use and configuration of the Services in compliance with Applicable Laws.
2. Fees and Payment
2.1 Customer will pay Flowhub the amounts set forth in each Order Form under this Agreement (“Fees”). All Fees will be invoiced as indicated in the applicable Order Form. If the applicable Order Form does not specify payment terms for the Fees, Customer will pay all Fees on the date of invoice. Unless otherwise indicated in the applicable Order Form, all Fees will be paid monthly in advance, on the first day of each calendar month during the Term (with the first month’s Fees prorated, if necessary, due on the Effective Date) without any set-off, offset, or deduction whatsoever, in immediately available U.S. dollars. If Customer has specified credit card or direct withdrawal from a bank account as an applicable payment mechanism under this Agreement, Customer grants Flowhub the right to charge the credit card or debit the bank account provided to Flowhub for all Fees incurred under this Agreement. Except as otherwise set forth herein, all Fees will be non-refundable once paid to Flowhub (including upon any termination or suspension of this Agreement). Until paid in full, all past due amounts will bear an additional charge of the lesser of 1½% per month or the maximum amount permitted under applicable law. Flowhub may change any portion of the Fees upon any renewal of this Agreement. The Fees do not include any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature (collectively, “Tax”). Customer shall pay all Tax associated with its purchases hereunder, excluding taxes on Flowhub’s net income.

Any rights not expressly granted to Customer hereunder are reserved by Flowhub.
3.2 Customer Data. “Customer Data” means all data, information, and other content imported to the Services or otherwise provided to Flowhub or its contractors by or for Customer in connection with Customer’s use of the Services.

Flowhub may terminate this Agreement on thirty (30) days prior written notice to Customer. Flowhub further reserves the right to immediately suspend Customer’s access to the Services where it believes that Customer’s use of the Services may be in violation of this Agreement or Applicable Law, present a security risk, or otherwise place Flowhub at risk of harm, loss, or liability.

9. Binding Arbitration
9.1 The parties will attempt to settle all claims, allegations, controversies, and disputes related in any way to this Agreement (“Disputes”) through good faith discussions between the parties. Any and all Disputes that cannot be resolved between the parties shall be resolved through binding arbitration under this Section. Either party may refer the Dispute to arbitration. Any such arbitration will be conducted in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA Rules”), in Denver, Colorado, and presided over by a single arbitrator selected by the parties in accordance with AAA Rules. All arbitrator candidates must be neutral as to each party and have substantial experience in the software and cannabis industries. Each party will bear its own expenses and will share equally in fees of the arbitrator. The parties will provide each other with all requested documents and records related to the dispute in a manner that will minimize the expense and inconvenience of both parties. Discovery will not include depositions or interrogatories, except as the arbitrator may expressly allow upon a showing of need. The parties and the arbitrator will be guided in resolving discovery disputes by the Colorado Rules of Civil Procedure. If disputes arise concerning discovery requests, the arbitrator will have sole and complete discretion to resolve such disputes. The parties agree that time of the essence principles will guide the hearing and that the arbitrator will have the right and authority to issue monetary sanctions in the event of unreasonable delay. The arbitrator will deliver a written opinion setting forth findings of fact and the rationale for the award within 30 days following conclusion of the hearing. The award of the arbitrator, which may include legal and equitable relief, but which may not include punitive damages, will be final and binding upon the parties, and judgment may be entered upon it in accordance with applicable Law in any court of competent jurisdiction. In addition the arbitrator will have the discretion to award the prevailing party all or part of its attorneys’ fees and costs, including fees associated with arbitrator, if the arbitrator determines that the positions taken by the other party on material issues of the dispute were without substantial foundation. Judgment upon the award may be entered in any court or governmental body having jurisdiction thereof. Any additional costs, fees, or expenses incurred in enforcing the award may be charged against the party that resists its enforcement. This Agreement will control if there is a conflict between the terms of this Agreement and the AAA Rules.
