5.Charges and Billing Practices
5.1 Free Trial
If offered a free trial period, you will not be charged a subscription fee during that free trial period. Subscription Fees on credit-card transactions can be authorized immediately, but not actually processed. If you remain a Customer when the free trial period ends, you will be charged for the initial term of your subscription and then, at the beginning of each automatic renewal term for the subscription fee for that renewal term.
5.2 Fees and Payments
Subscription Fees. The Subscription Fee will remain fixed during the initial terms of your subscription unless: (i) you exceed the limit number of either Events, Calendars, Users or Submitters in your subscribed product (ii) upgrade products or base packages, (iii) subscribe to additional features or products. Once increased, your Subscription Fee will not decrease, even if there is a subsequent reduction in the number of either Events, Calendars, Users or Submitters. We will monitor or audit the number of Events, Calendars, Users and Submitters, remotely in the Subscription Service. In the terms of your Order, quote, Invoice, or Product and Services Catalog you will be charged fees associated with additional Users or Submitters Service on the Prorated Adjustment basis, which is calculated based on the applicable daily rate included in your Order, Quote, Agreement or Invoice. The Total Due is the charge from the date of each additional User or Submitter through the end of the applicable Billing Period, plus taxes, and is subject to increase based on usage. Fees otherwise due for this Service will be billed in accordance with the Billing Period that applies to your subscription and as set forth in this Timely Terms of Service.
Fee Adjustments at Renewal. Upon renewal, we may increase your fees up to our then-current list price set out in our Pricing Catalog (if this option is made available to you) or in the renewal subscription notice. The fee adjustments include, but are not limited to, adding fees for new/optional Products and/or modifying fees for existing Products. By using any of the Products, with which there are associated fees, you agree to pay those fees. If this increase applies to you, we will notify you at least thirty (30) days in advance of your renewal and the increased fees will apply at the start of the next renewal term. If you do not agree to this increase, either party can choose to terminate your subscription at the end of your then-current term by giving the notice required in the ‘Cancellation’ section.
Users/Submitters Limit. Your Subscription Fee will increase immediately during the course of a Billing Period if you exceed your Maximum Users or Submitters limit in a Billing Period. In this case, the Subscription Fee will increase up to the price per user or submitter, as set out in the Pricing Catalog or in the quote you received in the beginning of your subscription, and charged by Timely at the time new users or submitters have been added into your account in a prorated amount for the remainder of Subscription Term. In the renewal date, you will be charged the full amount per additional users or submitters for the next Subscription Term, unless the subscription is cancelled.
Method of Payment. Subscription fees and all other fees and charges associated with your subscription (including, but not limited to, any applicable Federal, State, and Local taxes) will be billed automatically to the credit card you provided when registering for the Service (“your credit card”). If your credit card is a VISA or MasterCard and the number or expiration date for your credit card changes for any reason (for instance, you get a new number because your old card expired, or was stolen, etc.), that updated information may be automatically passed on from your credit card issuer to Timely, and if we do receive such information, it will be treated by Timely as if it were originally furnished by you. To learn more about this service being provided by your credit card issuer, please contact them directly.
5.3 Credit Card Information
You must promptly notify Timely if any information related to your credit card changes is no longer valid or of any other change to the information you provided Timely regarding your credit card (including, but not limited to, changes to your billing address or other pertinent contact information). Absent such notification, Timely will assume that all of the information related to your credit card remains valid and will submit to the card processor all information that it requires for approval, both when you initially subscribe and, if applicable, upon the commencement of any renewal of that subscription. If any subscription fees or other charges billed to your credit card are declined for any reason, Timely shall have the right to suspend your subscription until such subscription fees or other charges are paid in full. You agree to pay all costs (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by Timely in collecting any unpaid subscription fees or other charges from you.
How to Cancel. If you purchased your subscription through Timely, you may cancel it and terminate this agreement by sending an email to email@example.com to notify Timely.
When to Cancel. Cancellation requests must be received 15 (fifteen) days prior to the renewal date. Otherwise, payment is due on the renewal date.
Cancellation During Free Trial. If you cancel your subscription during your free trial period, you will not be responsible for the payment of a subscription fee. If you do not cancel your subscription before your free trial period expires, your Subscription Service will be activated and payment will be processed according to the respective quote, pro forma invoice, invoice or notice.
Early Cancellation. If you cancel your subscription at any time before the end of your Subscription Term, your membership will continue in effect until the anniversary of the effective date of your paid subscription and then terminate on that date, regardless of your payment terms. (For example, if your paid annual subscription start date is on January 1 and you cancel on June 10, your membership continues until December 31, at which time it ends even if you pay your subscription fees monthly or quarterly). We will not provide any refunds of prepaid fees or unused Subscription Fees, and you will promptly pay all unpaid fees due through the end of the Subscription Term.
Cancellation by Timely. Timely may cancel this Agreement for cause, as to any or all subscription Services: (i) upon 30 (thirty) days notice to you if it determines in its sole discretion that you have breached any portion of this Agreement if such breach remains uncured at the expiration of such period, or (ii) immediately, if it determines in its sole discretion that your use of or access to the Service violates any applicable law or regulation or otherwise inhibits any other subscriber from using or accessing the Service or any other service offered by Timely on the Service. None of the foregoing limits any other legal, equitable, or contractual rights available to Timely.
Timely may, in its sole discretion, choose not to renew your subscription by sending a notice of non-renewal at any time during your subscription term to the e-mail address you provided when completing your registration. You will be deemed to have received this notice, whether or not you saw it or the e-mail address provided by you continues to be valid. In the event of such a notice, your subscription will cease and will not automatically renew at the end of your then-current subscription term.
5.5 Refund Policy
Subscription fees will be based upon the subscription rates in effect at the start of each subscription term, and apply whether or not you actually use the Services during that term. FOR ALL PAID SUBSCRIPTION TERMS, SUBSCRIPTION FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.
