If applicable, Freeze Tag shall pay to DEVELOPER royalties (“Royalties”) based on Freeze Tag’s Net Publishing Revenue (as defined below) from the distribution, sale, license and/or other exploitation of the Product by Freeze Tag in accordance with this Section 3. Royalties payable by Freeze Tag to DEVELOPER are defined in Exhibit A and subsequent detailed Exhibits. “Net Publishing Revenue” shall mean gross amounts from any and all sources that are actually received by Freeze Tag from the sale, license, distribution and exploitation of the Products as provided for in this Agreement, less any amounts paid to a Licensor(s), less any advance or development monies paid to the DEVELOPER, less any User Acquisition Costs spent by Freeze Tag, less variable costs strictly related to running, maintaining and updating the game such as content servers, platform service fees (such as DeltaDNA, Locatlytics, Parse, Leanplum, etc.) and other similar services (which will not include labor costs), and less any authorized unrelated third party distributor of a Product. In the event that the Product is included in a collection of other titles offered for a single price, Royalties payable under this clause shall be calculated based on the pro-rata subscription (or fixed) price for the Product as a percentage of the total subscription / fixed prices for all titles in the collection.


3.3 Royalty Payment Schedule. Freeze Tag will pay DEVELOPER its earned Royalties on a quarterly basis via check through the US mail (or other certified delivery service) no later than thirty (30) days after the close of the quarter in which royalties have been received by Freeze Tag. Freeze Tag’s fiscal year end is December 31. At DEVELOPER’s request, Freeze Tag will make the Royalty Payment via wire transfer, but the wire transfer fee for this transaction will be subtracted as an expense from the Royalties due to DEVELOPER.




3.4 Auditing Records. For products or services that have a Royalty sharing component as described in an Exhibit. Freeze Tag shall maintain copies of sales and royalty records it receives from distributors, sales representatives, developers and any other party permitted to exploit any component of the Product. Freeze Tag shall provide DEVELOPER a copy of the calculation of Net Publishing Revenue used for the purposes of calculating Royalty payments to DEVELOPER with each payment of Royalties made to DEVELOPER. DEVELOPER will have the right every six (6) calendar months during the Term to have an independent auditor examine Freeze Tag’s books, records and accounts during regular business hours for the purpose of verifying Royalties owed to DEVELOPER hereunder. Each such examination will be upon at least five (5) days prior written notice to Freeze Tag and will not unreasonably interfere with Freeze Tag’s business. DEVELOPER and the independent auditor shall keep all materials related thereto confidential. If any examination discloses a shortfall in any Royalty payment due DEVELOPER of more than ten percent (10%), Freeze Tag will pay the fee of the auditors for that examination, in addition to the payment of such shortfall, and DEVELOPER will be entitled to perform an additional examination within one (1) year from the date of the examination that disclosed such shortfall, at Freeze Tag’s expense. In the event that Royalties become payable to DEVELOPER under this Agreement, this section 3.5 shall survive the termination of this Agreement for a period of six (6) months.


3.5 Accruing Interest. Without limiting DEVELOPER's rights and remedies hereunder, in the event Freeze Tag fails to make any payment when due hereunder, interest shall accrue on the amount owed as of the due date at an interest rate of (a) one percent (1.0%) per month or twelve percent (12.0%) annually, or (b) the highest rate allowed by law, whichever is less.
