FlippingBook Publisher reseller agreement

This FlippingBook Reseller Agreement (the “Reseller Agreement”) is between the applicable reseller (“you” or “Reseller”), and FlippingBook Limited. If you are agreeing to this Reseller Agreement not as an individual but on behalf of your company, then “Reseller” or “you” means your company, and you are binding your company to this Reseller Agreement.
This Reseller Agreement is a separate agreement from the agreement that FlippingBook has with its end users at https://flippingbook.com/help/legal/flippingbook-publisher-end-user-license-agreement (as may be modified by FlippingBook from time to time, “EULA”). For convenience and consistency, however, the definitions of certain terms related to our products and services will be the same as those in the end user agreements.
