10. Access.

If Cubs elects not to repair and restore the Premier Inventory, this Agreement will terminate as of the date of the damage or destruction, and all unused License Fees will be refunded to Licensee without interest.

12. Remedy. No refund or exchanges. Except where Event is a Chicago Cubs regular season home game and Licensee selects "Rain Out Insurance" on the Order Form, and pays the applicable fee, there are no refunds or exchanges of any Premier Inventory. Upon termination, all amounts due under this Agreement shall accelerate and become immediately due and payable and all Cubs' services and obligations to Licensee (including tickets) shall be null and void. Except where Event is a Cubs game and Licensee selects "Rain Out Insurance" on the Order Form and pays the applicable fee, no remedy will be provided to Licensee in the event a Rain Out, as defined in Paragraph 13, forces postponement, rescheduling or cancellation of any Event. If an Event does not occur for any reason other than a Rain Out as defined in Paragraph 13, below, including but not limited to, force majeure, act of Nature, labor dispute, or otherwise, (a "Missed Event"), and the Missed Event is rescheduled, the license shall apply to such rescheduled Missed Event and the Licensee shall have no right to cancel the license or seek a refund. If the Missed Event is not rescheduled, Licensee's sole and exclusive remedy shall be the refund of any prepaid License Fee, if any, applicable to the Premier Inventory associated with the Missed Event. Food and beverage charges for Missed Events will not be credited and Licensee will need to repurchase food and beverage service for any future Premier Inventory date. Notwithstanding the foregoing, food and beverage charges paid directly to Cubs' designated third party concessionaire shall be governed solely by the terms of sale provided by the concessionaire. Except as provided in Section 13, below, the remedies set forth in this Section 12 are Licensee's sole and exclusive remedy if any Event does not occur.

13. RAIN OUT INSURANCE.

Licensee may purchase ROI up until the Due Date (60 days preceding the scheduled date of the first game of the listed Premier Inventory unless otherwise approved in writing by Cubs' Director of Premier Seats and Services). ROI applies only to weather-related cancellations of games by Cubs or Major League Baseball, as the case may be, occurring either during the 48 hour period preceding the scheduled start time of the game or anytime during the date of the scheduled game (a "Rain Out"). Notwithstanding the foregoing, a Rain Out does not include, and ROI does not apply to, weather-related suspension of a game already in progress that Major League Baseball considers an "official" game according to Major League Baseball Rules (and which is therefore not rescheduled). 

a. Cubs' receipt of Licensee's payment for ROI entitles Licensee to elect to receive a refund (the "Rain Out Refund") of the applicable prepaid License Fee (minus ROI) in the event of a weather-related postponement, cancellation or rescheduling of a scheduled game by Cubs or Major League Baseball, as the case may be, subject to all of the terms and conditions set forth in this Exhibit A. Notwithstanding anything herein, the Rain Out Refund excludes: (i) the cost of the ROI; (ii) amounts paid directly to Cubs' designated third party concessionaire; or (iii) cost of food/beverage actually delivered to a suite (whether or not consumed), as well as any taxes applicable to (i), (ii) or (iii). 

b. In order to receive a Rain Out Refund, Licensee must: (i) select ROI on the Individual Game Order Form and pay the applicable License Fee (including ROI) by the Due Date; (ii) notify Cubs' designated Premier Sales contact, listed on the Order Form, in writing/email, of Licensee's ROI election within the 24 hour period after the Rain Out for which ROI has been purchased; and (iii) return to the Wrigley Field Box Office (in person or via mail) all tickets associated with the Rain Out at least 24 hours prior to any rescheduled game. Provided Licensee has fulfilled all conditions in the previous sentence, Licensee will receive a Rain Out Refund as provided in Section 13(a), above, within 45 days of Cubs' receipt of all outstanding Premier Inventory tickets for the date of the Rain Out. In addition, upon Cubs' receipt of written notice from Licensee as provided in (ii), Cubs will cancel all tickets for the Premier Inventory, Licensee forfeits any license to use the Premier Inventory for any rescheduled game, and Cubs may attempt (but is not obligated to) to re-license to any third party the package or any part thereof for any rescheduled game. Rain Out Refunds shall be paid, at Cubs' option, either via check to the address provided herein or, if paid by credit card, via refund to the credit card used to pay the License Fee. 

c. If Licensee does not notify Cubs of its election to receive a refund as described above in section 13(b), above, the terms and conditions of both the license for the game that has been cancelled and the ROI purchased in connection with the Rain Out shall automatically be transferred to the rescheduled game on the date and time rescheduled by Major League Baseball, if any. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if for any reason the Rain Out is not rescheduled by Cubs or Major League Baseball, as the case may be, Licensee's sole and exclusive remedy shall be as provide in Section 12.
