SERVICE TERM OF USER ACCOUNTS
The initial term for User Accounts will be twelve months beginning on the Service Commencement Date. Additional services purchased after the Service Commencement Date will have a prorated term ending on the anniversary of the Service Commencement Date. Tap Inspect may revise its rates with at least thirty days prior written notice to Customer, including by email, effective for the following term.
The default setting for the Services is auto renewal for all User Accounts. If the automatic renewal setting is enabled, after the initial term each User Account will automatically renew on each anniversary of the Service Commencement Date for an additional twelve month term. Customer will pay Tap Inspect the then-current yearly Fees for each renewed User Account unless Customer and Tap Inspect mutually agree otherwise. Customer may alter the number of User Accounts to be renewed by communicating the appropriate number of accounts to be renewed to Tap Inspect via the Admin Console.
Customer may disable the automatic renewal option via the Admin Console. If Customer disables this automatic renewal setting, Customer’s User Accounts will terminate upon the conclusion of the then current term unless the Customer’s User Accounts are manually renewed. Tap Inspect may re-enable the automatic renewal setting on Customer’s behalf if Customer reduces or modifies the number of End User Accounts scheduled for renewal via the Admin Console.
Customer may request End User Accounts by: (i) notifying its designated Tap Inspect Account Manager; (ii) ordering End User Accounts via the Admin Console, (iii) ordering End User Accounts via the handset application.
All payments due are in U.S. dollars unless otherwise indicated on the Order Page or invoice.
Fees for Credit Card orders are due immediately upon order placement. Tap Inspect will bill the credit card provided via the Order Page for all applicable Fees when due. If credit card authorizations or charge attempts are declined, Tap Inspect may immediately disable or cancel the Service, in its sole discretion.
Fees for orders where Tap Inspect issues an invoice are due upon Customer’s receipt of the invoice, and are considered delinquent thirty days after the date of the applicable invoice.
Delinquent payments may bear interest at the rate of one-and-one-half percent per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less) from the payment due date until paid in full. Customer will be responsible for all reasonable expenses (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by Tap Inspect in collecting delinquent amounts, except where such delinquent amounts are due to Tap Inspect’s billing inaccuracies.
Customer is responsible for any Taxes, and Customer will pay Tap Inspect for the Services without any reduction for such amounts. If Tap Inspect is obligated to collect or pay Taxes, the Taxes will be invoiced to Customer, unless Customer provides Tap Inspect with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. If Customer is required by law to withhold any Taxes from its payments to Tap Inspect, Customer must provide Tap Inspect with an official tax receipt or other appropriate documentation to support such payments.
