Partners are free at all times to engage in such other business activities and services and are encouraged to do so.
- PAYMENT & INVOICING
Partner will enter information concerning the skillset and rates of its Developer Personnel on Builder Hive. Partner’s compensation for the Services performed by Partner (or its Developer Personnel) will be at the posted rates on the Site. Builder will regularly generate a statement detailing the Developer Personnel who have worked during the applicable period, the rates for the work done and the fees earned by the Partner. The statement is derived by work performed (e.g., hours recorded) in Builder Tracker™ which measures the hours spent by the Developer Personnel working with Builder. The statement will be available to view within the Site and will have a defined order number (“Capacity Partner Order Number”). The Site will allow you to convert the statement to an invoice which you must digitally sign and submit to Builder within the normal payment period. Any invoices submitted that are not consistent with the Capacity Partner Order Number will be subject to audit before processing and may not be paid within the normal payment period. If there is any discrepancy between the invoice submitted by Capacity Partner and the data generated by the Site, then the data generated by the Site will take precedence.
Builder shall pay Partner within sixty (60) days of receipt of a correct and valid invoice submitted through the Site that references the relevant Capacity Partner Order Number. If Partner disputes any payments made by Builder, Partner must notify Builder within thirty (30) days after the date of payment; otherwise the dispute is deemed waived.
- PAYMENT DISPUTE
Builder may withhold or reduce from payment any amount disputed by Builder in good faith, pending resolution of the dispute, provided that Builder:

- notifies Partner of the dispute, specifying in such notice (A) the amount in dispute, and (B) the reason for the dispute (the “Dispute Reason”);
- works with Partner in good faith to resolve the dispute promptly; and
- pays any amount determined to be due by resolution of the dispute.
Partner shall continue performing its obligations in accordance with this Agreement notwithstanding any such dispute or actual or alleged nonpayment that is the subject of the dispute, pending its resolution.

If a Deliverable has any material errors or deficiencies or does not comply with the applicable documentation and/or specifications, or the Requirements (“Non-Conformity”), Builder may reject the Deliverable and provide Partner with information describing its reasons for rejecting the Deliverable.
Builder may suspend Acceptance Tests and the corresponding Testing Period by communication to Partner if Builder discovers a Non-Conformity in the tested Deliverable or part or feature thereof. In such event, Partner shall immediately, and in any case within 3 days, correct such Non-Conformity, whereupon the Acceptance Tests and Testing Period shall resume for the balance of Testing Period.
In such case Partner will cure the deficiencies and resubmit the Deliverable for a subsequent acceptance test within the longer of 50% of the original time period specified for preparation of the Deliverable or three (3) business days, but in no event more than ten (10) business days for each Deliverable unless otherwise agreed in writing by Builder.
