    • During the Term, CheckRed may, in CheckRed’s sole discretion, audit Licensee’s use of the Software to ensure Licensee’s compliance with this Agreement, provided that
      (i) any such audit shall be conducted on not less than seven (7) days’ prior notice to Licensee, and
      (ii) no more than one audit may be conducted in any twelve (12) month period except for good cause shown.

The Licensee shall fully cooperate with CheckRed’s personnel conducting such audits and provide all reasonable access requested by the CheckRed to records, systems, equipment, information, and personnel, including machine IDs, serial numbers, and related information.

      • If the use exceeds or exceeded the use permitted by this Agreement by more than twenty percent (20%), Licensee shall also pay to CheckRed, within ten (10) days following the date of CheckRed’s written request therefor, CheckRed’s reasonable costs incurred in conducting the audit.

The provisions set forth in the following sections, and any other right or obligation of the Parties in this Agreement that, by its nature, should survive termination or expiration of this Agreement, will survive any expiration or termination of this Agreement: Section 10, Section 14-17 and this Section 12(e).
