    1. Each of the Parties must bear its own costs in connection with the performance of this Agreement and fulfilment of the obligations herein.
    2. Revenue share only applies to Developers and UTD when the Applications distributed through Uptodown include offers for In-App Products (as defined below) that are managed through the in-app service provided by Uptodown. In case In-App Products are offered through any service other than that provided by Uptodown, no revenue share will apply and Developer shall not have to pay any amount for such reason to Uptodown. For the purposes herein “In-App Products” mean digital products that are intended to be accessed or used within the Application, such as additional or enhanced functionalityies, media content, or subscription access to content or services.

      The price (“Price”) for the purchase of the In-App Products will be solely determined by the Developer. If at any point Uptodown was to set out any pricing guidelines then the Developer agrees that the In-App Products managed through the in-app service provided by Uptodown must be priced in accordance with any such pricing guidelines established by Uptodown.

      The Developer shall be responsible for claims arising from the change of the Price, for transition from free to paid In-App Products and for termination of the In-App Products.

      Should an Application distributed through Uptodown have In-App Products, Users must be made aware of this, prior to the purchase of such feature in a clear and transparent manner. During the payment process for In-App Products, the Developer must ensure that the User consents to pay and must make the User aware that such payment shall be made, without limiting and in addition to any applicable requirements under applicable regulations.

      The Developer is solely responsible for any and all liabilities arising from or in connection to the In-App Products and for its compliance with any applicable laws and regulations. In-App Products managed through the in-app service provided by Uptodown must also comply with policies and distribution criteria established for Uptodown from time to time.

      The revenue share between the Developer and UTD arising from the sale or distribution of In-App Products managed through the in-app service provided by Uptodown shall be 20% of the Net Revenues for UTD and 80% of the Net Revenues for the Developer. “Net Revenues” for the purposes of this paragraph means the difference between (i) the total amount paid by the User in connection with the In-App Product, and (ii) any applicable taxes, any reasonable transaction costs (including without limitation any currency exchange costs and the separate fee charged to the User in relation to processing of payments) and any cancellation or reverse charges, and (iii) refunded amounts, bad debts, cancelled amounts or other amounts of similar nature. If the Application is free and does not have In-App purchases, the Developer and UTD will not be entitled to receive any amounts.

      The revenue share corresponding to the Developer shall be displayed in the Developer Account and paid by UTD to the Developer under the terms herein provided and any other terms applicable as made available through the Developer Account. The Developer may decide at any time to withdraw its revenue share from its Developer Account, provided that the minimum to proceed with the withdrawal of such earning is one thousand Euros (1.000 €).

      The Developer shall provide UTD with all financial, tax and banking information requested in order to make payment of amounts owed under this Agreement and to comply with any KYC, money laundering or similar obligations that may apply. In particular, the Developer shall submit to UTD the following details: - a legal and valid email address for correspondence. - a legal and valid document evidencing the identity, such as a Tax Identification Number or a Tax Residence Certificate. - a legal and valid bank account and other bank information where its is to receive the revenue share of the In-App Products.

      The Developer will notify UTD of any changes to the required information. Failure to provide such information, or failure to keep such information current and accurate, may result in removal of the relevant Application from Uptodown and payments to the Developer being withheld.

      UTD will issue an invoice on behalf of the Developer within the first five (5) days of the month following the withdrawal by the Developer. After 2 years from the date in which the Developer is entitled to withdraw the revenue share as provided above, if the Developer has not requested the withdrawal or has failed to provide the documentation as required for UTD to be able to make the relevant payments, then the Developer’s right to receive such revenue share older than 2 years will expire and UTD shall retain such amounts that will be for all purposes regarded as UTD additional revenues. Additionally UTD is entitled to request any Developer to withdraw the full revenue shares available under the relevant Developer Account (even if below the limit set out for an ordinary withdrawal to be permitted) and any Developer failing to do so within a period of 3 months (including by not providing to UTD the documentation required to make such payments as provided herein) shall be deemed to have been finally waived by the Developer and the relevant amounts shall be retained by UTD and considered as UTD additional revenues.

      UTD shall apply and deduct any withholding taxes to payments to the Developer under applicable law.

      The Developer agrees that any payment of Net Revenues may be withheld in the event of a breach of this Agreement, of any applicable laws or if any amounts are owed by the Developer to UTD or to any UTD Affiliate.

      In the event the currency of payment from User is different from the currency of the payment agreed with the Developer, all expenses and foreign exchange costs associated with completing the required foreign exchange conversions shall be deducted of the relevant payment.

      The Developer will bear the bank fees charged to UTD relating to payments made to the Developer. UTD will be entitled to deduct such fees from the revenue share due to the Developer.

      The Developer shall be responsible of complying with tax regulations applicable to its activity and cooperate with UTD furnishing any documentation required for UTD to comply with its tax obligations.

      The Developer shall not take any action which is aimed at deviating from UTD the generation of revenue arising from the In-App Products that are managed through the in-app service provided by Uptodown in a way that it would reduce the amount that UTD is entitled to receive from the relevant In-App Products. In particular and without limitation, any trial version of any Application distributed through Uptodown should generate Net Revenues subject to the revenue share between the Developer and UTD if and when it generates any revenue from In-App Products that are managed through the in-app service provided by Uptodown. Failure to comply with this restriction entitles UTD to receive the amounts that it would have otherwise received and suspend the relevant Developer Account and the distribution of its Applications through Uptodown, without limiting other actions available to UTD. In any case, UTD will be entitled to offset the amounts due by the Developer hereunder with any other amounts that the Developer would be entitled to receive from UTD.
