B. In the event a Service Order expires before a renewal Service Order is executed by the parties and Customer desires to continue to receive Services and is not then in default, the expired Service Order shall convert to a month to month term at NetArmi’s then-current list prices unless and until (i) one of the parties gives at least thirty (30) days prior written notice to the other of its election to terminate the month to month Service; or (ii) the parties execute a renewal Service Order for a new fixed term. If Customer cancels any Service Order before its expiration date for reason other than NetArmi’s breach, then Section 7.D. and 7.E. herein shall apply.
C. Prices. NetArmi’s fees and prices for the applicable Products and/or Services are set forth in the Service Order. Typical charges can include: an annual or monthly recurring charge, associated initial, one-time installation charges, charges for consulting services (if applicable), and out-of-pocket expenses incurred by NetArmi (or its Affiliates, third-party licensors or subcontractors) in connection with installing and performing the Services. Any renewal of the Service Order may be subject to then-current price and fee amendments.
A. Taxes and Other Fees. Prices set forth in the Service Order are exclusive of taxes and other government fees, which may be imposed on NetArmi or Customer for the provision or use of the Products and/or Services. Customer will pay such taxes and other fees, except for NetArmi’s U.S. federal and state income tax and NetArmi’s personal property tax. Tax exempt status will be granted to Customer upon presentation of a satisfactory certificate of exemption for each respective taxing jurisdiction.
B. Invoicing and Payment. Except for any third party products purchased through NetArmi that are billed one (1) year in advance for a minimum term of one (1) year, Services are billed one (1) month in advance and the first billing cycle may include a partial month Service and a full month Service charge, if the Service is installed and activated during a partial month of Service.

All amounts not timely and appropriately disputed in writing prior to the Invoice Due Date shall be deemed final and not subject to further dispute. If Customer was billed in error, a credit for the amount billed incorrectly will be made to the next invoice. If the amount was billed correctly, Customer will pay the amount within seven (7) days of confirmation.
E. Suspension or Termination of the Services. If payment in full for Products and/or Services under the Service Order (other than for charges validly disputed by Customer in good faith) is not received by NetArmi by the Invoice Due Date, NetArmi, without waiving any other remedies to which it may be entitled, shall also have the right to suspend or terminate the Services should payment default remain uncured seven (7) days after Customer receives an email notice from NetArmi of such default and intention to suspend or terminate the Services. NetArmi may decide not to accept additional Service Orders from Customer until all past due amounts have been paid. Following payment, NetArmi shall reinstate the account provided that Customer furnishes satisfactory assurance of its ability to pay for the Services. No cancellation or termination under this provision shall relieve Customer from its obligations to pay for Products and/or Services under any Service Order not so canceled or terminated. NetArmi has the right to terminate this Agreement in the event the Services are terminated in accordance with the foregoing. Customer shall reimburse NetArmi for all reasonable costs incurred in collecting any past due payments, including collection costs, legal fees, and court costs.
