Should you enter into any third party agreements affecting or relating to your use of the Service, you agree that you will continue to be bound by these terms and conditions, regardless of any outside commitments you may have. These terms of service apply to, and only to, the Account Owner as identified below. In the event that you wish to transfer ownership of your account to another party, you must follow the cancellation policy procedures outlined in section 3 of this agreement. We must receive in writing your wish to transfer ownership of the account and the new customer must sign the terms of service. We reserve the right to update the account billing to the most current retail prices listed on our website should the account change ownership.

Accounts may be temporarily deactivated immediately following a failed payment, until payment is received. On a monthly payment plan, billing will continue to recur each month, even in instances of account deactivation. After 3 consecutive months of non-payment, we reserve the right to permanently cancel the account without Customer’s request or approval. If a Customer wishes to have service reconnected, a $199.00 reactivation fee will be added to the outstanding balance as a condition of reconnection. Reconnection to the service will not be granted until the Customers outstanding balance is paid in full. In addition, Computica reserves the right to require Customers on a monthly billing plan with a history of delinquency to pay for their service on a yearly basis instead of a monthly basis. Computica will exercise its best efforts to maintain, but does not guarantee that it will maintain, Customer data so that it will be available to Customer upon reconnection.
