3. Using the Marketplace to Publish Your Add-Ons
Subject to successful completion of CAKE.com’s review process, you may offer Add-Ons in the CAKE.com Marketplace. You designate your listing type using your Developer Account on the CAKE.com Marketplace (subject to approval by CAKE.com), based on the following options: (a) Add-Ons that you provide free of charge (“Free Add-Ons”) and (b) Add-Ons for which Add-On Users pay all fees to CAKE.com (with Developer receiving a Revenue Share as described in this Agreement, and CAKE.com receiving the Revenue Share from Add-On Users as Developer’s commercial agent) (“Paid Add-Ons”).
4. Financial Terms
This Section 4 (Financial Terms) shall only apply to Paid Add-Ons.
4.1. List Price. Subject to the remainder of this Section 4 and the other terms of this Agreement, you have discretion to set the commercial pricing tiers for initial sales, licenses or subscriptions to your Paid Add-Ons (the “List Prices”). “Sale” includes any initial or renewal sale, subscription or license of a Paid Add-On (or related content or services) through the CAKE.com Marketplace.
4.2. Fee. As consideration for the services rendered by CAKE.com (including through its contractors) under this Agreement, CAKE.com may retain a share of Net Revenues as specified in the Developer Portal. CAKE.com shall remit to Developer the remaining portion of Net Revenues (“Developer Revenue”) in accordance with this Section 4. CAKE.com may, in its sole discretion, issue refunds or return any amounts paid to Add-On Users in accordance with CAKE.com’s standard procedures and policies.
4.3. Currency Conversion. Unless otherwise specified in the Marketplace Guidelines, you will designate your List Price in United States Dollars (USD) and CAKE.com will make all Revenue Share payments to you in USD.
4.4. Payment by CAKE.com. CAKE.com shall remit Developer Revenue to Developer on a monthly basis within thirty (30) days after the end of each month (each, a “Payment”), together with a report showing the calculation of Developer Revenue. Developer shall be solely responsible for any and all financial institution fees relating to each Payment. CAKE.com will not be required to remit Developer Revenue for any month in which Developer Revenue is less than Five Hundred U.S. Dollars (USD $500) (or the equivalent thereof in other currencies, based on CAKE.com’s standard currency exchange process and timing) (the “Threshold”); provided that, any such amounts that do not meet the Threshold (each a “Withheld Amount”) will be carried forward month-over-month until the sum of such Withheld Amounts exceeds the Threshold, at which time CAKE.com will make a Payment for such Withheld Amounts to Developer within thirty (30) days after the end of the month in which the Threshold is met.
4.5. Use of Certain Information. CAKE.com may use or disclose aggregated sales and other financial data related to the CAKE.com Marketplace, which may include your sales and related financial data but does not identify you or your data specifically.
(a) Sales Taxes. In the event that CAKE.com’s sale or delivery of any Add-On to any Add-On User is subject to any sales, use, goods and services, value added, or other similar tax (other than Developer’s income taxes) under Applicable Laws (collectively, “Sales Taxes”), responsibility for the collection and remittance of such Sales Taxes will be determined by CAKE.com and remitted by CAKE.com to relevant tax or other competent authorities. Developer shall indemnify and hold CAKE.com harmless against any and all claims by any tax or other competent authority for any underpayment of any Sales Taxes, and any penalties and/or interest thereon.
(b) Withholding Taxes. In the event that any remittance or Payment made by CAKE.com to Developer is subject to any withholding or similar tax (“Withholding Tax”), the full amount of such Withholding Tax shall be solely from Developer’s Account and will not reduce the amount to which CAKE.com is entitled. If CAKE.com reasonably believes that Withholding Tax is due, CAKE.com may deduct the full amount of such Withholding Tax from the amount otherwise owed to Developer, and may pay the full amount withheld over to the relevant tax or other competent authority. Where applicable, CAKE.com will apply a reduced rate of Withholding Tax, if any, provided for in any applicable income tax treaty only if Developer furnishes CAKE.com with the documentation required under such income tax treaty, or documentation otherwise satisfactory to CAKE.com, sufficient to establish Developer’s entitlement to the benefit of such reduced rate of Withholding Tax. Upon Developer’s timely request to CAKE.com in writing, using means reasonably designated by CAKE.com, CAKE.com will use commercially practical efforts to report to Developer the amount of CAKE.com’s payment of Withholding Tax to the relevant tax or other competent authority on Developer’s behalf. Developer will indemnify and hold harmless CAKE.com against any and all claims by any tax or other competent authority for any underpayment of any Withholding Tax, and any penalties and/or interest thereon including underpayment attributable to any erroneous claim or representation by Developer as to Developer’s entitlement to the benefit of a reduced rate of, or Developer’s disqualification from, Withholding Tax.

For the sake of clarity, after termination, you are not obligated to provide any New Versions of your terminated Add-On to CAKE.com for distribution under this Agreement thereafter, but CAKE.com’s post-termination rights in this Section 10.3 will apply for the latest version of the Add-On you provided to CAKE.com hereunder.
