I was told the meaning of the paragraph refers to the case when a vendor has renewed the contract directly with the customer and as a result is not paying our company. In other words my agreement states that I will be paid on all transactions including renewals on an evergreen basis. This language is suppose to prevent a claim for commissions to be paid when the customer signs a new agreement with the same vendor but not through our company. Is there a need to have the language stated more clearly in the agreement?
So is the take away that the agreement is fair and reasonable based upon my performance of all of the responsibilities outlined or is the language in point F in need of additional clarity. The renewal has to do with the vendor providing the services to the end user. We are functioning as a broker. if we do not reengage the customer within 30 days of the renewal then the Vendor will engage the customer directly.
