The EchoSign Service may be expanded to include (i) integration of third-party services; and (ii) advanced authentication and identity verification services allowing customers to verify the identity of Parties accessing the Electronic Document.
1.3 Customer Usage and Consent. Customer must only use the EchoSign Service solely for its own business purposes and will not make its passwords available to a third party, reverse engineer any part of the EchoSign Service or resell or sub-license the EchoSign Service. Customer agrees the use of Electronic Signatures is governed by the laws, policies and regulations of individual countries, regions and industries. In the event of a dispute where the law is unclear as to the treatment of electronic signatures, the parties agree the United States Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (“ESIGN”) controls.
2. PAYMENTS AND FEES
2.1 Payment. Customer must pay the fees according to the payment terms in the Sales Order. All invoices are exclusively electronically mailed to Customer.

If Customer fails to pay any amount due under this Agreement within 15 days of the date of Adobe’s notice of Customer’s failure to pay, Adobe may, in its sole discretion, terminate this Agreement, or suspend or restrict provision of the Products and Services. Adobe may charge interest at a monthly rate equal to the lesser of 1% per month or the maximum rate permitted by applicable law on any overdue fees, from the due date until the date the overdue amount (plus applicable interest) is paid in full.
2.3 Disputes. If Customer believes in good faith that Adobe has incorrectly billed Customer, Customer must contact Adobe in writing within 30 days of the invoice date, specifying the error. Unless Customer has notified Adobe of the dispute, Customer must reimburse Adobe’s reasonable collection costs (including attorney’s fees). Customer must pay the undisputed portions of Adobe’s invoice as required by this Agreement.
