5.4 End User Customer Relations.
You, and not Intuit, are the licensor of your Developer Application to end user customers. You agree to provide each Licensee with an end user license agreement or terms of service (“EULA”) that contains terms in accordance with the Agreement. You, and not Intuit, are responsible for providing all customer and technical support and maintenance for your Developer Applications. This includes your obligation to provide your Licensees with support services for data transfer to and from QuickBooks for desktop. You agree to promptly respond to any Licensee inquiries forwarded by Intuit relating to your Developer Application. In the event of any change to, or discontinuation of, your Developer Application you shall provide notification to Licensees and address any related customer inquiries.
If termination of a Licensee’s access to any Developer Application is due to nonpayment of License Fees, the Licensee shall be notified that the Licensee’s data shall be deleted if the Licensee does not retrieve it during the notification period.
If Intuit permanently discontinues a specific marketing and sales channel, Intuit (i) shall send notification to you via e-mail at least sixty (60) days prior to such discontinuance and (ii) shall post notification on the website at least thirty (30) days prior to such discontinuance. In such instance, Licensee shall be responsible for retrieving Licensee data from the Service during that sixty (60) day period.
Termination terms for QuickBooks Developer Applications shall be determined by you as stated in the EULA between you and the Licensee. Notwithstanding such terms, Intuit may, upon Licensee’s request, cease providing Licensee’s data to you at any time.
