2.2 If you are agreeing to be bound by this Agreement on behalf of your employer or other entity, you represent and warrant that you have full legal authority to bind your employer or such entity to this Agreement. If you do not have the requisite authority, you may not accept the Agreement or use the Marketplace on behalf of your employer or other entity.

2.3 You may not distribute Add-ons on the Marketplace if you do not accept this Agreement.

3. Pricing and Payments.

3.1 The price You set for Add-ons will determine the amount of payment You will receive. A Transaction Fee, as defined below, will be charged on the sales price. The remainder (sales price less Transaction Fee) will be remitted to you.

3.2 The Transaction Fee will be set on per Add-on basis at ImpressPages's sole discretion. Author can see the actual Transaction Fee when submitting new Add-on to the Marketplace.

3.3 Author is responsible for determining if a Product is taxable and collecting appropriate taxes. Author is responsible for remitting taxes to the appropriate taxing authority.

3.4 You may distribute Add-ons for free. Free means there are no charges or fees of any kind for use of the Product.

3.5 You authorize ImpressPages to give the buyer a full refund of the Product if the buyer has the right to refund according to the ImpressPages License or the policy of payment processor chosen.

3.6 You will be solely responsible for support and maintenance of your Add-ons and any complaints about your Add-ons. Your contact information will be displayed in each application detail page and made available to users for customer support purposes.

4. Use of the Marketplace by You

4.1 You agree to use the Marketplace only for purposes that are permitted by any applicable law, regulation or generally accepted practices or guidelines in the relevant jurisdictions.

4.2 You agree that if you use the Marketplace to distribute Add-ons, you will protect the privacy and legal rights of users. If the users provide you with, or your Product accesses or uses, user names, passwords, or other login information or personal information, you must make the users aware that the information will be available to your Product, and you must provide legally adequate privacy notice and protection for those users. Further, your Product may only use that information for the limited purposes for which the user has given you permission to do so. If your Product stores personal or sensitive information provided by users, it must do so securely and only for as long as it is needed. But if the user has opted into a separate agreement with you that allows you or your Product to store or use personal or sensitive information directly related to your Product (not including other products or applications) then the terms of that separate agreement will govern your use of such information.

4.3 You agree that you will not engage in any activity with the Marketplace, including the development or distribution of Add-ons, that interferes with, disrupts, damages, or accesses in an unauthorized manner the servers, networks, or other properties or services of any third party. You may not use customer information obtained from the Marketplace to sell or distribute Add-ons outside of the Marketplace.

4.6 You agree that you are solely responsible for (and that ImpressPages has no responsibility to you or to any third party for) any breach of your obligations under this Agreement, any applicable third party contract or terms of service, or any applicable law or regulation, and for the consequences (including any loss or damage which ImpressPages or any third party may suffer) of any such breach.

4.7 You may remove Add-ons from future distribution via the Marketplace at any time, but it doesn’t affect already sold Add-ons in any way. Removing your Add-ons from future distribution does not change your obligations (like support) to Add-ons already sold. ImpressPages may remove the Product from the Marketplace or reclassify the Product at its sole discretion. ImpressPages reserves the right to suspend and/or bar any Author from the Marketplace at its sole discretion.

4.8 You agree that you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any Author credentials that may be issued to you by ImpressPages or which you may choose yourself and that you will be solely responsible for all applications that are developed under your Author credentials.
