QUICKBOOKS PROADVISOR PROGRAM AGREEMENT
I. GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
1. Agreement Acceptance; Money Back Guarantee (a) Agreement Acceptance. IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ: This QuickBooks ProAdvisor Program Agreement ("Agreement") is made between you and Intuit Inc. and/or its subsidiaries and affiliates ("Intuit") and is effective either as of the date you enroll in the Program ("Effective Date") and provides the terms and conditions (including benefits and Certification provisions as set forth in the referenced Schedules) of your enrollment in the QuickBooks ProAdvisor Program ("Program"). This Agreement supersedes all previous Program terms and conditions, benefit provisions and other Program agreements, and shall apply to all Participants regardless of when enrollment in the Program began. Your participation in the Program means that you agree to the terms and conditions as provided in the Agreement. If you do not accept this Agreement, you must contact the QuickBooks ProAdvisor Program Hotline ("Hotline") to terminate your enrollment to the Program. As used in this Agreement, "you," "your," and "Participant" are synonymous and refer to the person who enrolled in the Program reflected in Intuit's records. (b) Sixty-Day Money Back Guarantee. The QuickBooks ProAdvisor Program Deluxe and Premium memberships are subject to Intuit’s Sixty-Day Money Back Guarantee. Each new Participant to whom Intuit sends an email order confirmation for Program membership purchases receives a sixty-day money-back satisfaction guarantee. If any such new Participant is not satisfied with the Program, Participant’s sole remedy is to cancel the purchased Program membership within sixty (60) days of the date of such email order confirmation from Intuit. Participant must also uninstall and delete all copies of the Software from Participant’s computer(s), if applicable. Intuit will issue to such Participant a refund for the full Program membership fee for the current one-year membership period only. 2. Membership Information (a) Membership and Benefits. The QuickBooks ProAdvisor Program is available to accounting, bookkeeping, tax, and consulting professionals who are providing services to third-party clients. Participant hereby certifies that the information Participant supplied to Intuit during the Program enrollment process is true and correct. This information is for the express use of Intuit and does not constitute certification or endorsement by Intuit of Participant. Participant further understands that Intuit reserves the right to discontinue Program enrollment, without limitation, of any Participant who does not meet the criteria for participation, and such criteria shall be determined from time to time at Intuit's sole discretion. If you are member of the ProAdvisor Program Deluxe or ProAdvisor Program Premium and this membership was purchased by your firm or employer, and you leave the firm or employer and begin working with a different firm and/or employer, the firm or employer who purchased the membership may, in their sole discretion, transfer the individual’s membership to another individual. However, each QuickBooks ProAdvisor Certification through education and testing and all benefits associated with that certification, including but not limited to product discounts and inclusion in the Find-a-ProAdvisor profile listing, is tied to the individual who underwent the certification through education and testing and may not be transferred to another individual. In addition, the Participant who left the firm or employer must purchase a license to a new membership to take advantage of certification benefits defined in Section II: Exhibit A for the new firm or employer. (b) Find-A-ProAdvisor Profile Listing. Any Participant who is current on their QuickBooks certification* is entitled to publish only one profile listing on the Find-a-ProAdvisor Directory. If the ProAdvisor has purchased the ProAdvisor Program Deluxe or Premium membership, then they can still publish only one ProAdvisor profile on the Find-a-ProAdvisor Directory, even if they already have an existing profile listed on the Directory. If the ProAdvisor has purchased two or more of the Deluxe and/or Premium memberships, then they are entitled to a total of two profile listings on the Find-a-ProAdvisor Directory. No certified ProAdvisor individual may create more than two ProAdvisor profile listings on the Find-a-ProAdvisor directory. *To be current/up-to date on their certification, a ProAdvisor must have passed one of the three most recent QuickBooks desktop certifications, or must have passed QuickBooks Online certification in the last 366 days. 3. Proprietary Rights a. Participant agrees that Participant is not authorized or permitted to use the term or name "Member: QuickBooks ProAdvisor® Program", "Member: QuickBooks ProAdvisor® Program" or other permitted uses as provided in the Trademark Usage Restrictions herein unless Participant maintains current, valid participation, and only during the Term. Participant agrees to abide by all of the Trademark Usage Restrictions. Participant further agrees that Participant is not authorized or permitted by Intuit to use the trademarks "Intuit", "QuickBooks", “ProAdvisor”, "QuickBooks ProAdvisor", "QB", "QB ProAdvisor", "QuickBooks ProAdvisor", "QB ProAdvisor" or Intuit's corresponding logo designs, or any other trademarks, trade names or domain names corresponding to or similar to Intuit's marks -- including but not limited to "Quick", "Intui", "intuitive", "intuition", "intu", "tuit", "tui", "Turbo" or "Mint" (or phonetic equivalents) --in any Participant products, services, or advertising, or in any way not expressly set forth in this Agreement. Participant further agrees that Participant will use all services and software provided by Intuit strictly in accordance with the license agreement(s) accompanying such services and software and with U.S. copyright laws. You are not authorized by Intuit to resell or distribute the services and software provided to you by Intuit in any way, except, where applicable, for those versions of the services or software that Intuit makes available to you specifically for distribution to your clients. 4. Protection of Interest a. Acknowledgment of Rights. Participant acknowledges Intuit's exclusive rights in all of its trademarks, trade names, logos (including, without limitation, the Certified Logo) and service marks ("Intuit Marks") and all goodwill associated therewith, and acknowledge that any and all plain-text uses of Intuit Marks by you inure solely to the benefit of Intuit. You shall not challenge Intuit's exclusive rights in and to the Intuit Marks. You shall not do anything that might harm the reputation or goodwill of Intuit or any of the Intuit Marks.

You shall not adopt, use, or register any corporate name, trade name, trademark, service mark, internet domain name, or other designation confusingly similar to the Intuit Marks or incorporating in any way any of the Intuit Marks. If at any time you attempt to acquire any rights in, or registration(s) or application(s) of any kind for, containing or corresponding to the Intuit Marks by operation of law or otherwise, you will immediately and at no expense to Intuit assign such rights, registrations, names or applications to Intuit, along with any and all associated goodwill. b. Enforcement. In the event you become aware of any unauthorized use of the Intuit Marks by a third party, you should promptly notify Intuit in writing, and shall cooperate fully, at Intuit's expense, in any enforcement of Intuit's rights against such third party. 5.

You further agree that you will use the Program and its benefits to assist and counsel small business clients on their use of QuickBooks products, and not for another purpose. If Intuit determines in its sole discretion that you are using the Program for another purpose or for a purpose that conflicts with the goals of the Program, we reserve the right to terminate your membership or access to the Program and its benefits.

You shall cooperate fully and shall provide Intuit immediate access to all requested materials and to your business premises in order to allow Intuit to exercise its right to inspect. 10. Third Party Services Certain services and products provided by third parties, and not by Intuit, are made available in connection with the marketing and distribution of QuickBooks in the Program ("Third Party Services"). You are responsible for reviewing, understanding and complying with the terms and conditions governing any Third Party Services, and your use of any Third Party Services indicates your acceptance of such terms and conditions.

Indemnification by You You agree that Intuit shall have no liability to you or any of your clients or customers and that you shall indemnify, defend and hold Intuit harmless from any expenses, damages, costs or losses (including reasonable attorney's fees) resulting from any suit or proceeding based upon a claim arising (i) by reason of your performance or non-performance under this Agreement; (ii) arising out of your use of the Intuit Marks in any manner whatsoever except in the form expressly licensed under this Agreement; (iii) a breach of any representation, warranty, or obligation made by Participant contained in the terms of this Agreement, and/or (iv) for any personal injury, product liability, or other claim arising from the promotion and/or provision of products or services by you. In the event Intuit seeks indemnification from you under this Section 11, Intuit will immediately notify you in writing of any claim or proceeding brought against it for which it seeks indemnification under this Agreement. Intuit reserves the right, at its option, to assume full control of the defense of such claim or proceeding with legal counsel of its choice. If Intuit so undertakes its own defense, any settlement of such claim or proceeding requiring payment from you shall be subject to your prior written approval. You agree to reimburse Intuit upon demand for any expenses reasonably incurred by Intuit in defending such claim, including, without limitation, attorney's fees and costs, as well as any judgment or settlement of the claim or proceeding.

(c) Auto-renewal and Annual Membership for ProAdvisor Deluxe or ProAdvisor Premium. (i) Auto-renewal. Intuit will notify you by email thirty (30) days prior to the renewal date of your Term ("Effective Renewal Date") that you will be charged the then-current renewal membership fee to the credit card on file. If your credit card is charged and you later elect not to renew your membership, you may cancel your membership and request a refund of the renewal membership fee by notifying Intuit no later than 60 days after the Effective Renewal Date. Please note you can opt out of Auto-renewal at any time by again calling the Hotline. (ii) Annual ProAdvior Deluxe or Premium Membership.

If you are paying on a monthly basis, and if you cancel after the Sixty (60)-day money-back guarantee period, you will not be entitled to any refunds and you are required to pay the remaining monthly membership subscription fees for the remainder of your annual membership Term. (iii) Lapsed Deluxe or Premium Membership. If you do not elect to renew your membership, or opt out of Auto-Renewal, your Program membership will terminate. You may restore your participation in the Program ("Lapsed Membership Renewal") by re-joining the Program.

Pay Per Click / Search Engine Advertising Restrictions In order to avoid potential confusion among consumers and to prevent search engine ads from being removed by our trademark compliance monitoring systems, Members must adhere to the following restrictions. Member understands and agrees that Intuit retains the right to remove any ads that, in Intuit's sole discretion, do not comply with these restrictions. All sponsored ad titles must lead with Member's own marks or names, or with industry descriptors, and cannot lead with Intuit brands. For example, all sponsored ad titles must be structured as "XYZ for QuickBooks" instead of "QuickBooks XYZ". This will help avoid potential confusion as to the source, branding, or sponsorship of Member's offerings. Proper Use Improper Use

Note that the URL examples above may be acceptable formats, as long as they don't confuse consumers into believing that the URL leads somewhere other than Member's own website(s). However, any URL where an Intuit mark is incorporated into the front portions of the URL, or into the root domain itself, would violate these restrictions. Members may only mention Intuit marks in sponsored ads that directly advertise member’s own services that comply with this agreement, and Members may only use Intuit marks as search keywords to trigger sponsored ads that directly advertise Member’s services as they relate to Intuit products through the ProAdvisor Program. If Member advertises its services or applications on search engines outside the United States (e.g., google.ca or yahoo.co.uk), Member must ensure that such services or applications truly pertain to or interoperate with the corresponding localized version of the Intuit product. When purchasing search engine ads, Members must ensure that they carefully designate the appropriate countries/regions for the ad. Intuit marks may only be used in the very end segment of any display URL of a search engine ad. For example, Member may only use an Intuit mark in URLs as follows: www.MemberName.com/appnameforquickbooks. Search engine ads must point to Member's own Web site, and must point to a page containing information about Member's Services. When using Intuit marks in search engine ads, Member must avoid any false claims or statements of affiliation, endorsement or sponsorship, where no such relationship exists. For example, Member must not claim in its ad that the ad will lead people to an "Official Site" for QuickBooks, or claim that Member is an "Official Partner" or "Preferred Solution" of Intuit. Member may bid on phrases like "free QuickBooks" only when promoting free Intuit offerings or trials (like QuickBooks Simple Start Edition), but may not bid on Intuit brands on a stand-alone basis when promoting a free Intuit product. Member may use words like "discount", "deal", and "low cost" in sponsored ads that also contain Intuit marks, but should avoid use of words that may negatively affect Intuit's brands, like "cheap", "blowout", "bargain", "fire sale", etc.. Intuit reserves the right to take down sponsored ads containing descriptions or words that it believes, in its sole discretion, could damage the equity and reputation of its brands.
