Your right to use the Application ends the earlier of (i) written notice to You of Avenue4’s termination of this EULA or (ii) the date that Your Account is terminated or deactivated by Avenue4 in accordance with this EULA or the Trading Platform Agreement.
(g) If any third party asserts a claim or demand against You or Your Organization alleging that Your use of Application infringes or misappropriates such third party’s intellectual property rights, You must immediately notify Avenue4 and cease Your use of the Application until further written notice from Avenue4.

Avenue4 does not charge a license fee to access and use the Application. However, Avenue4 does charge a commission payable by the seller on each closed Transaction. The commission rate will not exceed 10% of the purchase price. The actual commission percentage will vary based on the quantity of IPv4 numbers in the seller’s inventory as registered in its Account.
Avenue4’s standard commission is referenced in the TPA. If You are a seller, the specific Avenue4 commission applicable to You will appear in Your account profile.
You understand and agree that Aveneu4’s commission does not cover registration transfer fees, professional services, third-party escrow services, or any other third-party fees incurred by You in connection with Avenue4’s rendering of the services or the closing of Transactions. The typical fees required of buyers and sellers to close Transactions are disclosed in the Trading Platform Agreement.
Prior to placing Your first order in the Platform on behalf of Your Organization, You will be required to sign the Trading Platform Agreement on behalf of Your Organization. The TPA sets forth the trading policies and procedures applicable to Your use of the Application. If You are a buyer and indicated Your Organization’s purchase requirements as part of the sign-up process, You will be asked to acknowledge and agree to the TPA as part of the sign-up process. Including purchase requirements as part of the sign-up process is optional.
