You are solely responsible for, without limitation, obtaining and maintaining all telecommunications, broadband, and computer hardware, equipment, and services needed to access and use the Service, and paying all charges related thereto. You are responsible for ensuring that your equipment is compatible with the Service.
C. No person or entity not a party to this Agreement will be deemed to be a third-party beneficiary of this Agreement, except as expressly stated herein with regard to a Providing Party. “Providing Party” for purposes of this Agreement, means TPPS, Customer, and any other party that provides non-public information to a party hereto or enters such information into the Service. Should you enter into any third-party agreements affecting or relating to your use of the Service, you acknowledge that you will continue to be bound by these Terms of Service. In the event that you wish to transfer ownership of your account to another party, you must follow the procedures outlined in this Agreement. We must receive, in writing, your wish to transfer ownership of your account and the new Account Owner must agree to and execute the Terms of Service. We reserve the right to update the account billing to the most current retail prices listed on our website in the event that the account changes ownership.
A. Billing. Account payments are due and payable according to your subscription period as stated below. All accounts will be automatically renewed unless terminated prior to such renewal per the terms of this Agreement.
i. Monthly: 1month initial service commitment, paid on a monthly basis, renewed monthly
ii. One Year: 12 months’ Service, paid in advance, renewed for successive 12-month periods
iii. Two Years: 24 months’ Service and payment obligation, paid annually in advance, renewed at the end of the 24 months for additional 12-month periods
iv. Three Years: 36 months’ Service and payment obligation, paid annually in advance, renewed at the end of the 36 months for additional 12-month periods
Any upgrades to the account after the date of this Agreement will be billed in addition to the agreed upon amount. Upon each renewal, for every subscription period, payments will either be charged to the credit card on file or payable upon receipt of TPPS’s invoice. If paying by credit card, this Agreement MUST be signed by the credit card holder. No exceptions can be permitted.
B. Additional Terms, Available Funds. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to terminate the Service to you if funds are not available or if payments are reversed, challenged, charged back, or if an expired credit card is not timely replaced in our system for payment. Your first payment will be due upon execution of this Agreement. Thereafter, payment will be due not later than the first day of the contract term billing period for the subsequent term of Service. The contract term is determined by the payment plan specified during enrollment. If TPPS does not receive payment as scheduled, Customer agrees to pay TPPS all amounts due upon demand. Customer agrees to pay all reasonable attorneys’ and collection fees arising from TPPS’s efforts to collect any past due amounts from Customer.
C. Continuous Service Membership. Subscription membership to the Service is on a continuous service basis until terminated by either party. This means that once you have become a subscribing member, your membership will be automatically renewed and you will be charged based on the subscription payment plan in accordance with the term length, monthly or annual. Full payment is due at the time of renewal. If paying by credit card, the credit card will automatically process for the renewal period on the day of renewal. If paying by check for an annual subscription, the check is due on, or before, the day of renewal.
D. Price Increase. TPPS may increase the prices charged for the Services; provided that TPPS will provide Customer at least thirty (30) calendar days’ prior notice of such price increases. Such notice may be made by means of email or a posting on the Website. Customer’s continued use of the Services following notification shall be taken as evidence of Customer’s consent and agreement to the price increases. TPPS will automatically apply any price increase to Customer’s billing. Changing from a yearly billing plan to a monthly billing plan, or a monthly billing plan to an annual billing plan, will subject customer to pay current retail price as listed on the website.
E. Promotions/Discounts. TPPS reserves the right to remove any and all promotional rates, discounts, or specials at the end of the agreed upon terms.
F. Late Fee. A $25.00 late fee may be assessed for any failed credit card transaction or returned check. If Customer is setup for credit card billing, TPPS reserves the right to run Customer’s card up to three (3) additional times to attempt to receive payment without Customer approval. 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 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 Customer’s outstanding balance is paid in full. In addition, TPPS reserves the right to require Customer, if previously on a monthly billing plan with a history of delinquency, to pay for Service on a yearly basis instead of a monthly basis. TPPS may maintain, but does not guarantee that it will maintain, Customer data so that it will be available to Customer upon reconnection.
G. Setup Fee. The setup fee, also referred to as the implementation fee, must be paid in full at the time of purchase. In certain instances the setup fee may be financed over a six month period. In the event that an account is cancelled prior to the end of the six-month finance period, the full balance of the setup fee will be billed to the Customer. The remaining unpaid balance must be paid in full at the time of cancellation.
H. Taxes. Customer shall be solely responsible for and agrees to pay, indemnify, and hold TPPS harmless from any and all sales, use, communications, excise, or similar tax or duty, and any other tax not based on TPPS’s net income, including penalties and interest and any associated professional fees, and all other imposts levied upon or chargeable with respect to the use, license, sale, or delivery of the services or other deliverables in respect of this Agreement, and any costs associated with the collection or withholding of any of the foregoing items.
