PAYMENT

Money payable to us by you will become owing upon the start of each billing cycle. Customers on an annual billing cycle may receive a discounted rate.

PAYMENT METHODS

We accept payments via credit/debit card. We currently accept MasterCard and VISA credit/debit cards. We can also generate an invoice for you to pay by cheque or bank transfer. This option is only available for annual billing cycle accounts. Customers are responsible for keeping all credit/debit card details and contact information current.

SUBSCRIPTION BILLING

Credit/debit card payments are collected at the beginning of each billing cycle. Customer billing periods typically begin on the first day of the month in which the customer purchased the subscription. If you pay by the annual invoice option, then invoices are generated at the beginning of each billing cycle.

LATE, OVERDUE OR UNPAID FEES

At our discretion the costs of debt recovery and collection may be added to any amount payable in the event of overdue and/or unpaid fees.

Late Fee: We may assess a $30.00 late fee for any payment that is fourteen (14) days past due.

Charge backs: If a customer initiates a charge back, We may assess a $50.00 processing fee for each individual charge back.

Returned Cheques: We may assess a $50.00 processing fee on each returned cheque.

Collections Fee: In the event an account is submitted to a third-party collections service, a $35.00 processing fee may be assessed to the existing account balance. This fee is in addition to any other fees previously assessed on the account.

Interest: Any charges not paid when due are also subject to interest at a rate equal to either (a) one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or (b) the maximum interest rate allowed by applicable law.

CANCELLATION

You may cancel the service at any time after 30 (thirty) days of commencement of your purchase of our service. Any cancellation will be billed a minimum of one billing cycle to cover our administration costs including installation, support and training.

In the event of cancellation, customers will still have access to their service until the end of their final billing period.

Creating a Cancellation request: A request to cancel our service must be initiated at least 30 days prior to the start of the next billing cycle. Any request to cancel our service must be made verbally with one of our representatives and via email. Cancellation  requests by email only are not acceptable. Customers are encouraged to keep records of all communications regarding cancellation.

Simply cancelling the credit/debit card associated with our service does not cancel the account. We will continue to treat this as an open account and the billing cycle will continue, resulting in a past due account that may be turned over to a third party collection service. It is essential  that you speak with one of our representatives or submit an online ticket through the cancellation form (or our contact page) if you wish to initiate cancellation of your account.

Finalizing Cancellations: After a request to cancel has been initiated, you must speak with a member of the cancellation team to finalize the cancellation. Cancellations will take effect on the last day of the billing period in which the cancellation was processed by the cancellation team, subject to the terms of our “Subscription Billing” section.

Cancellation of an account does not dismiss outstanding invoices or nullify previously agreed charges, charged in instalments or annual contract charges, portions of which may not yet have been invoiced when you cancelled. At the time of cancellation, any outstanding balance must be settled. All cancelled accounts with an outstanding balance may be turned over to a third-party collection service.

SETTLEMENT OF BILLING DISPUTES

Customers agree to provide us at least thirty (30) days to attempt settlement of any billing dispute before disputing with any third-party credit/debit card company or bank. Should we receive a charge back from a third-party credit/debit card company or bank on the customers behalf before we have been given a chance to resolve the issue, We have the right to charge the customer for our time spent in resolving such disputes and any associated fees incurred by us, in addition to the $50 charge back fee mentioned elsewhere. Regardless of the outcome of the charge back, we retain the right to collect on any Services or fees that are due. We may submit any disputed amounts to a collection agency. Once a charge back has been received, we have the right to suspend the account until the matter is resolved.

REFUNDS

All Subscription and Service fees are nonrefundable. We will not pro rata adjust any portion of unused subscription services at any time.

BACKUP OF YOUR DATA

We do not provide a data backup service, please do not depend on us to keep back up copies of your data (that’s your job!). You should always ensure that you have several back up copies of your content in several different physical locations.
