Unless explicitly stated otherwise in the Agreement, the “Contract Period” is three (3) years from the effective date of the Agreement.
If either Party does not wish to renew the Agreement, this Party must notify the other Party no later than three (3) months prior to the end of the Contract Period or any renewal period. If such notice is not given, the Agreement is automatically renewed and extended for an additional one (1) year from the end of the initial Contract Period or any renewal period.
Fees and charges
The Customer undertakes to pay a monthly fee as set out in the Agreement. The monthly shall be paid NET30 from the date of invoice, unless explicitly stated otherwise in the Agreement.
Turner Pest Control (“Turner”) may increase the annual fee with respect to any future year. If Turner increases any annual fee by more than the Permitted Increase, Turner shall notify Customer of any increase of the annual fee no later than three (3) months prior to date on which the next annual fee is due. In the case of such an increase by more than the Permitted Increase, the Customer may, at its option, terminate the Agreement (effective on the day prior to the next annual fee payment date) by delivering a written request for termination to Turner. Such termination request must be delivered to Turner not later than thirty (30) days after the Customer’s receipt of Turner notification of increase. Such termination will not relieve Customer of its obligations to pay any amounts due to Turner with respect to any period prior to the termination date.
Turner reserves the right to, in addition to the annual fee, charge the Customer for Turner’ performance of additional services (such as expedited service, technical service and troubleshooting), in each case as such additional services are mutually agreed by Customer and Turner.
In the event of a late payment a penalty interest in arrears will apply at LIBOR plus 3% (not to exceed the maximum interest rate allowable by applicable law and regulation).
Changes to the Agreement
Turner may from time to time modify the terms of the Agreement, including these Conditions. Any such change will not be effective against Customer unless Turner notifies Customer in writing of such potential changes no later than three (3) months prior to the proposed effective date of the change.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, with respect to any change to the Agreement reasonably required in order to comply with applicable law and regulation or reasonably necessary in order to provide the services, Turner shall give notice to Customer as soon as practicable under the circumstances, which notice must specify the effective date of the proposed change.
If the Customer does not accept the changes, the Customer may, at its option, terminate the Agreement by delivering a written request for termination to Turner not later than ten (10) days after the Customer’s receipt of Turner’ notification of the changes. In the event of such termination, Turner shall reimburse the Customer for any unused portion of the most recent prepaid annual fee (based on a 365 day year and actual number of days elapsed).

Turner’ Equipment remains the property of Turner.
Standard installation of SMART monitoring devices includes one (1) SMART connect and two (2) SMART eyes. If any additional equipment is requested by the customer, the customer would pay per piece of requested equipment.
