Drone Dynamics will provide services for Client utilizing small unmanned remotely operated aircraft systems (“drones”, or “sUAS”), and small unmanned remotely operated vehicles (“remotely operated vehicles”, or “ROVs”).
Additional terms and conditions will be in Services Agreements (herein so called) entered into by the Parties which shall be subject to these terms and conditions. Each Services Agreement contains its own expiration and termination provisions. This Agreement remains in effect from its Effective Date until it expires or is terminated in accordance with the provisions hereof, even if no Services Agreements are in effect at any given time.
In the event of any conflict or inconsistency between the provisions of this Agreement and any individual Services Agreement, the provisions of these terms and conditions shall control.
Drone Dynamics Services
Drone Dynamics provides services for Client in developing sUAS and/or ROV programs, with the Client providing its own pilots and operators (in-house model). Drone Dynamics also provides sUAS and ROV capabilities utilizing its own pilots and operators (out-source model). “Services” means the Drone Dynamics services specified in the Services Agreements. Services will be conducted in accordance with applicable laws.
Term and Termination
The initial term of this Agreement begins on the Effective Date and continues for a period of three (3) years. Following expiration of the initial term, this Agreement automatically renews for successive one (1) year terms unless either Drone Dynamics or Client notifies the other Party in writing at least ninety (90) days prior to the expiration of the initial or renewal term that Drone Dynamics or Client does not elect to have this Agreement be renewed.
Client may terminate this Agreement by written notice pursuant to the section below entitled “Amendments to the Agreement.”
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, this Agreement shall continue in effect for as long as any Services Agreement is in effect, and this Agreement may not be terminated unless every Services Agreement between Drone Dynamics and Client has been terminated. No termination shall affect accrued compensation.
Compensation and Payment
Compensation shall be as specified in the Services Agreement.
Unless otherwise specified in the Services Agreement, all charges invoiced are due within 30 days from the date of the invoice. All payments shall be payable at the offices of Drone Dynamics in Austin, Texas, in accordance with the instructions on the invoice.

Proprietary and Confidential Information
Each Party shall maintain as confidential and shall not disclose to any third party any information about the disclosing Party’s business or activities that is proprietary and confidential, which shall include all business, financial, technical and other information of a Party marked or designated “confidential”, or by its nature or the circumstances surrounding its disclosure should reasonably be regarded as confidential (“Confidential Information”). The Party to whom the information is provided shall protect the Confidential Information from unauthorized use and disclosure by exercising at a minimum the same degree of care that it uses with respect to information of its own of a similar nature; however, in all circumstances such Party must exercise no less than reasonable protective care. All Confidential Information of a Party will remain the exclusive and sole property of such Party.
Notwithstanding the above, each Party has no obligation to protect information that is rightfully known to the Party before disclosure under this Agreement without obligation of confidentiality, is independently developed by the Party without relying on the Confidential Information, is or becomes part of the public domain without breach of this Agreement or breach of a similar agreement or is lawfully obtained from a third Party not under an obligation of confidentiality.
Either Party may disclose Confidential Information to the extent required by law, regulation or any governmental entity with jurisdiction over it, but the Party being required to provide the Confidential Information by legal process must give the other Party prompt written notice with specifics of the required disclosure to permit that Party to seek a protective order.
Either Party may seek injunctive relief for the breach or threatened breach of these Proprietary and Confidential Information provisions.
Each Party agrees, at the sole option of the other Party and upon 10 days written notice, to return or destroy Confidential Information of the other Party.
The provisions of this Proprietary and Confidential Information section of this Agreement shall remain in full force for a period of three (3) years beyond the later of the termination of this Agreement or any Services Agreement.
