|The entity (Company) identified in the Order Form (“Sponsor” or “you”).|
ACC and Sponsor are referenced herein each individually as a “Party”, and collectively as the “Parties”. The Parties agree as follows:
The Agreement is effective as of the date ACC countersigns (as that date is noted by ACC on the Order Form) the completed Order Form submitted by Sponsor (“Effective Date”).
The capitalized terms listed below shall have the meaning assigned below:
a. ACC Guide (formerly known as “InfoPAK”): an ACC-branded in-depth white paper on a topic of interest to ACC members, in a format meeting ACC’s editorial guidelines for ACC Guides.
b. Webcast: ACC facilitated webcasts on a topic of interest to ACC members, as determined by ACC.

f. Resource(s): any of the resources listed at clauses a through e above that Sponsor develops for ACC under this Agreement (i.e., sponsored Resources). For avoidance of doubt, Non-sponsored Resources (as defined below), are not deemed Resources under this Agreement.

2. Sponsorship and Sponsorship Fee
A. The sponsorship fee to be paid by Sponsor to ACC (“Sponsorship Fee”) is the amount of Sponsorship Fee specified on the Order Form, and is non-refundable. You agree to provide to ACC for publication a minimum of three written Resources during the Initial Term of this Agreement (then during each Renewal Term if any), in consideration for being designated an “ACC Global Resource Provider” (per the terms of subsection B below). The Sponsorship Fee is due and payable to ACC within ten (10) calendar days following the date of Sponsor’s signature of the Order Form.
B. Sponsor is hereby granted permission to use the following description when referring to the Sponsor's ACC Global Resources Sponsorship, “[Sponsor Name] is an ACC Global Resource Provider for [country/region as listed in the accepted Order Form].” Sponsor has no right to any exclusivity under this Agreement. This non-exclusive Agreement does not prohibit ACC from seeking services from any third party (including, without limitation, in the same country/region as Sponsor).
C. Sponsor agrees to be featured by ACC as an ACC Global Resource Provider during the Initial Term of this Agreement (then during each Renewal Term if any). For the avoidance of doubt, featured ACC Global Resource Providers may be displayed, in name and/or logo, by ACC on various media, including, without limitation, on the ACC website and on ACC’s communications with members, such as, without limitation, through email and social media.
3. Resources and Services
A. During the Initial Term of the Agreement, and during each Renewal Term (if any):
a. Sponsor shall, in a timely manner, deliver to ACC at least three Resources formatted as Top Ten or Quick Overview (which will thus be deemed sponsored resources), on topics relevant to the country(ies) or region(s) mentioned in the Order Form as accepted by ACC.
b. Sponsor may also provide as many Sample Forms as it wishes (and these will also be deemed sponsored resources), on topics relevant to the country(ies) or region(s) mentioned in the Order Form as accepted by ACC.
c. Sponsor may also opt to deliver Webcast(s) and/or ACC Guide(s), if Sponsor agrees to ACC’s then-current terms pertaining to such Resources, pays the corresponding additional sponsorship fee, and focuses these Resources on topics relevant to the country(ies) or region(s) mentioned in the Order Form as accepted by ACC.
d. Sponsor may also submit Non-sponsored Resources to ACC for publication on the ACC website (for example, without limitation, in ACC’s online resource library) on topics relevant to any country(ies) or region(s). ACC may, in its sole discretion, decline or accept to publish, and may subsequently cease publication of, Non-sponsored Resources. Sponsor has no right to promotion by ACC of Non-sponsored Resources.
B. Resources Quality and Approval: Potential topics must be submitted by Sponsor for ACC’s approval. Sponsor shall comply with the timelines, editorial and quality guidelines that ACC may communicate and/or update from time to time. In order to enhance the quality of the Resources that Sponsor develops for ACC, Sponsor shall pay particular attention to, and shall comply with, ACC's Key Quality Questions and Tips for ACC Resource Providers (“Key Quality Requirements”) and with ACC's editorial guidelines ("Editorial Guidelines") (including, without limitation, the ACC Top Ten Editorial Guidelines and the ACC Quick Overview Editorial Guidelines) that ACC links herein or otherwise communicates or makes available to Sponsor from time to time, as may be updated or supplemented from time to time by ACC. Sponsor shall ensure that the Resources it provides are practical and relevant for in-house counsel. Topic selection, promotion, resource finalization, and publication for the above Resources are subject to ACC’s review, edits and approval. ACC has the right to edit the Resources. ACC may amend or supplement the Editorial Guidelines and the Key Quality Requirements without prior notice.
C. Resource removal, cancellation, delays and interruptions: ACC may require additional editing from the Sponsor, or delay or cancel publication of Resources, if Sponsor fails to comply with the requirements herein, or if the Resource is not produced in accordance with deadlines, is not consistent with the initial proposal, or is not of sufficient quality. Resources that are delayed may be subject to limited promotion at ACC’s discretion. ACC may cancel (remove from ACC’s website) Resources at any time for good cause (e.g., without limitation, following complaint by a member, or a breach by Sponsor of an obligation under the Agreement) (without prejudice to ACC’s other rights to remove a Resource from publication under this Agreement). ACC will not be liable for interruption(s) of publication arising from technical issues.
D. Subject to payment by Sponsor of the Sponsorship Fee and to provision by Sponsor of the content required under this Agreement, ACC shall be responsible for:
1. Within two weeks from the finalization of the first resource, featuring Sponsor’s name and logo on a dedicated webpage listing ACC Global Resource Providers;
2. Reviewing and approving or disapproving Resource topics under the following criteria: (1) the topic’s educational value; (2) its timeliness; (3) its conflict, overlap, relevance to, and/or duplication with any other existing or proposed ACC projects; and (4) whether the primary purpose of the proposed topic is to promote the Sponsor’s products or services (in which case the proposal is likely to be rejected);
3. Reviewing and editing drafts and final resources provided by Sponsor. ACC shall have final say and approval over the content of the Resource. Examples of instances in which ACC may deny or delay publication are, without limitation: if Sponsor fails to comply with the Key Quality Requirements or the Editorial Guidelines, or if the Resource is not consistent with the initial proposal, or is not of sufficient quality;
4. Publishing the Resources created or contributed by Sponsor under this Agreement to ACC’s Legal Resources online library, for at least the duration of the sponsorship's Initial Term (or Renewal Term if any) or 12 months, whichever is shorter (and subject to the terms of Section 3 subsection C above). After that minimum time period, ACC retains the right to unpublish the Resource, and the right to remove Sponsor’s logo, byline, hyperlinks and other references to Sponsor and author(s) and seek an alternative sponsor or author to update the content (without prejudice to ACC’s other rights);
5. Providing appropriate attribution to the Sponsor, and author(s) when Sponsor provides name, for any Resource created or contributed by Sponsor under this Agreement, as soon as a Resource has been uploaded by ACC to ACC’s Legal Resources online library. Attribution should include identifying the Sponsor in the Resource by placing the Sponsor’s logo near the top of the Resource. Upon expiration, termination or cancellation of the Agreement, and without prejudice to ACC’s other rights, ACC has the right to remove Sponsor’s logo, byline, hyperlinks and other references to Sponsor and author(s), and to seek an alternative sponsor or author to update the content;
6. Serving as the point of contact between ACC members and the Sponsor. Any communications to be sent to ACC members shall be sent by Sponsor to ACC first and will be subject to prior written approval by ACC;
7. Promoting the Resource through several ACC channels, which may include, without limitation, email updates to members, the ACC Docket, and/or other places on the ACC website;
8. Including a link to any Sponsor-created or -contributed Resource, in the ACC Newsstand email newsletter;
9. After publication of the Resource, providing Sponsor with the URL to the final published Resource on the ACC website;
10. Tracking download or pageview statistics for the final published Resource, and, up to two times during the 12-month Term of the Agreement, at Sponsor’s request, providing the total number of downloads or pageviews (depending on the publication format) for a specified period of time; and
11. Providing Sponsor with an appropriate logo that may be used by Sponsor to reflect the sponsorship resulting from this Agreement.
E. Sponsor shall:
1. Prepare and deliver the contents of the Resources in accordance with the Editorial Guidelines and Key Quality Requirements provided by ACC, as may be updated from time to time by ACC;
2. Provide all “Additional Resources” required by the Editorial Guidelines in the Resource via hyperlinks (electronic format) throughout the document;
3. Provide its logo to ACC in jpeg format, and allowing its logo to be hyperlinked to the Sponsor’s homepage or other selected webpage of Sponsor;
4. Review and update the Resource as needed to keep it as current as possible, such as, without limitation, with any new provisions, changes to regulations, or other pertinent information. Reviewing and updating may be done as necessary, but in any event Sponsor must submit the update (if any) to ACC no later than the earlier of (i) within 24 months (2 years) after the initial date of publication, or (ii) before expiration or termination of the Agreement; otherwise the update will be considered a new Resource and may be charged by ACC to Sponsor as a standalone sponsorship. Sponsor understands that failure to provide ACC with updated content within the allowed time period increases the likelihood that ACC may exercise its right to unpublish the Resource and/or to remove Sponsor’s logo, byline (including references to the author(s) and Sponsor), hyperlinks and other references and to seek an alternative sponsor or author to update the content (without prejudice to ACC’s other rights);
5. Liaise and collaborate with ACC regarding all of Sponsor’s communications pertaining to ACC, and abide by ACC’s requests regarding these communications; and
6. Pay the Sponsorship Fee to ACC per the terms of the Agreement.
4. Relationship of Parties
Sponsor enters into this Agreement as, and shall continue to be, an independent contractor. Sponsor shall act in accordance with this status and shall not, nor shall Sponsor’s employees, hold Sponsor or the employee out as an officer or employee of ACC, nor shall Sponsor make any claim based on any right or privilege applicable to ACC’s employees. Under no circumstances shall Sponsor or Sponsor’s employees or agents look to ACC as their employer, or as a partner, agent, or principal. Sponsor shall not incur any liability on behalf of, or commence any legal proceedings in the name of, or on behalf of, or in any way pledge the credit of ACC without ACC’s prior written approval.

12. Force Majeure
Neither Party will be liable for performance delays nor for non-performance due to causes beyond its reasonable control, except for payment obligations.
13. Absence of Endorsement; Use of Logo
