This agreement is between Forecastable, Inc., a Florida corporation (Forecastable), and the party agreeing to these terms (Referring Party), and is effective as of the date of the last signature below.
Referring Party intends to market Forecastable’s online software service (Service) to prospective customers and provide qualified leads for the Service to Forecastable (Leads). For the avoidance of doubt, the Service does not include implementation and setup services
Payment. All Referral Fees (defined below) are payable 30 days after the end of the applicable calendar month, so long as Forecastable received payment in that month for the applicable transaction. Along with any payment, Forecastable will provide reasonable details regarding the Referral Fees paid in that month. Forecastable may determine in its sole discretion whether it wants to enter into a contract with a Lead or not and has no liability to Referring Party if it does not do so.
- Referral Fee means a percentage of the amount paid by a Lead to Forecastable for the Service for the initial committed duration (i.e. not any renewals, upsell, cross-sell or additional capacity purchases) under a contract between the Lead and Forecastable (less any transaction-based fees, costs of the transaction between the Lead and Forecastable, and credits charges and refunds), except for Leads that are Excluded Leads.
- Referral Categories: The first category of referral is “Net New”, which means that the Referring Party made the initial introduction between Forecastable and a lead belonging to a company where Forecastable does not have an open opportunity. The Referral Fee percentage for Net New referrals is 15% of the closed/won booking, less any services. The second category of referral is a “Deal Acceleration” referral. This is a situation whereby Forecastable has an open opportunity with a prospective customer and the Referring Party has a relationship with a person, or multiple people, at the prospective customer that Forecastable is not currently engaged with. If Forecastable feels the relationship(s) will expedite the currently-active opportunity, then Forecastable will accept the introduction(s). All Deal Acceleration referrals must be approved in advance, in writing by Forecastable. The Referral Fee percentage for Deal Acceleration referrals is 5%.
- Excluded Lead means any Lead that:
- is either an existing or known potential customer of Forecastable;
- does not become a customer of the Service within 12 months of the date Forecastable was introduced to such Lead by Referring Party under this agreement;
- is not introduced to Forecastable in conformance with the Forecastable lead referral process (which process will be identified by Forecastable and is subject to change upon electronic notice from Forecastable); or
- that Forecastable identifies or contacts, other than as a result of the Referring Party’s services under this agreement.
- FORECASTABLE MAKES NO WARRANTIES TO REFERRING PARTY.
- CONSUMER LAW NOTICE. SOME STATES MAY NOT ALLOW, SUCH DISCLAIMERS, EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION, SO THE ABOVE DISCLAIMER, EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO REFERRING PARTY.
- Definition of Confidential Information. Confidential Information means all non-public information disclosed by a party (Discloser) to the other party (Recipient), whether orally, visually, or in writing, that is designated as confidential or that reasonably should be understood to be confidential given the nature of the information and the circumstances of disclosure (Confidential Information). Confidential Information includes, without limitation, this agreement, software, product/service technical documentation, pricing information, customer and prospect lists, market projections and analysis, technology roadmaps, data regarding business practices, intellectual property, and other technical information.
- Protection of Confidential Information. The Recipient must use the same degree of care that it uses to protect the confidentiality of its own confidential information (but in no event less than reasonable care), and during and after the term of this agreement for a period of three (3) years after the termination of this agreement, it may not disclose or use any Confidential Information of the Discloser for any purpose outside the scope of this agreement. The Recipient must make commercially reasonable efforts to limit access to Confidential Information of Discloser to those of its employees and contractors who need such access for purposes consistent with this agreement and who have signed confidentiality agreements with Recipient no less restrictive than the confidentiality terms of this agreement. The Recipient may disclose Confidential Information to the extent required by law or court order but will provide Discloser with advance notice to seek a protective order.
- Exclusions. Confidential Information excludes information that: (i) is or becomes generally known to the public without violation of this agreement; (ii) is or was known to the Recipient prior to its receipt from Discloser; (iii) is disclosed to the Recipient by another person not in violation of a confidentiality obligation; or (iv) was independently developed by the Recipient without use or access to the Confidential Information of the Discloser.
- Lead Information. Notwithstanding anything contained in this agreement to the contrary, Forecastable may use all Lead information for any business purpose and such information is considered the Confidential Information of Forecastable.
- Interest. All Leads must have demonstrated an interest in the Service, to be considered as a Lead under this agreement.
- Compliance. Referring Party must use solicitation methods that comply with all applicable laws and do not use any deceptive, misleading, unethical, or improper acts or practices.
- No Agency. Referring Party may not make any representation or promise on behalf of Forecastable, must conduct all business in its own name, and is responsible for its own expenses and costs when performing under this agreement.

- Mutual Termination for Material Breach. If either party is in material breach of this agreement, the other party may terminate this agreement at the end of a written 15-day notice/cure period, if the breach has not been cured.
- Post-Termination Referral Fee Payments. If a party terminates this agreement for its convenience, then Forecastable will continue to pay Referral Fees for Leads that:
(i) entered into a contract with Forecastable prior to the effective date of termination, and
(ii) paid Forecastable within 6 months after termination only where the Leads were received by Forecastable prior to the effective date of termination,

- Complimentary Not-For-Resale (NFR) Access. As an active Forecastable partner, the referring party will be provided with their own Forecastable subscription at no cost. This subscription will be unrestricted in terms of features and may have an unlimited number of users as long as the users are direct employees of the referring party. To be considered “Active”, the referring party must have either referred business to Forecastable or provably conducted some meaningful form of Forecastable-centric go-to-market effort within the last 12 months (webinar, podcast, etc.). In the event the referring party doesn’t meet these requirements, the referring party will be notified and they will be provided with a 30-day notice to convert to a paying customer or to provide Forecastable with a plan on how the referring party plans on improving their partnership contributions in the near future. If the plan is accepted by Forecastable, then NFR access will remain in place. If not accepted, the referring party must either convert to a paid subscription or simply do nothing and the NFR access will automatically be revoked within 30 days of the non-acceptance of the referring party’s plan.
