The Customer agrees that it shall use the Feed Product Reporting Tool solely for reporting purposes. Iress agrees to provide Customer, upon request, reasonable assistance with the Feed Product Reporting Tool.
    (a) Upon a Third Party Service Provider’s request, Iress may be required to identify all customers who have been supplied with the Third Party Service according to the Third Party Service Provider’s classifications as customers of “Real-Time Data‟, “Delayed Data‟, “End of Day Data‟, “Historical Data” or any other classification, and the Customer authorizes Iress to supply such information to a Third Party Service Provider.
    (b) Should the Customer fail to report for a quarterly period, Iress shall determine the applicable Third Party Fees based on the previous quarterly reporting period, plus such additional amount that Quanthouse in its sole discretion considers reasonable. Invoices based on Iress’ determination may not be contested by the Customer (unless the Customer is able to provide an appropriate report or documentary evidencing its actual usage within 10 Business Days of the date of the invoice, in which case, Iress may issue a revised invoice), and must be paid by the Customer in accordance with the invoice and the Agreement. However, any proven under or over invoicing will be applied (and corrected) by Iress in the next quarterly reporting period.
    (c) In the event that the Customer incorrectly reports its usage of a Third Party Service and as a result of such incorrect reporting, Iress is issued with a fine or other penalty by the Third Party Service Provider, Iress may include the amount of such fine or other penalty in the Customer’s invoice for the next quarterly reporting period, and the Customer acknowledges and agrees that it is liable to pay such amount to Iress.
  12. Feed Product Reporting Tool: Iress will provide the Customer with the Feed Product Reporting Tool (being the tool made available to the Customer via the following website https://quad.quanthouse.com//) to enable the Customer to fulfill its mandatory reporting requirements hereunder. The Feed Product Reporting Tool is provided on an as-is basis at no charge to the Customer. The Customer acknowledges that it will use the Feed Product Reporting Tool at its own risk and that the Feed Product Reporting Tool comes with no warranties, express or implied. The Customer is solely responsible for any errors, discrepancies or mismanagement of reports generated by the Feed Product Reporting Tool. Iress reserves the right to modify the format of the Feed Product Reporting Tool any time at its sole discretion.
  13. The Customer is authorised to access a Third Party Service for up to the number of instruments included in the pack of instruments subscribed to, as set forth in a Service Order (where applicable) (Instrument Cap). For the purposes of these Supplemental Terms, an “instrument” shall mean any financial instrument that has a unique Third Party Service Provider code. By way of example, a single security traded and quoted on two different Third Party Service Providers that have been subscribed for by the Customer will be counted as two (2) instruments. Iress has the ability and right to monitor the Customer’s Third Party Service usage to ensure that such use has not exceeded the Instrument Cap. In the event that the Customer exceeds the Instrument Cap, Iress may (without prejudice to any other available legal or equitable remedies), charge the Customer additional fees for such use and / or modify the annual fees upon automatic extension of the term then in effect.
