3. Billing and Renewal
3.1 Contact Level charges and collects in advance for use of the Services. Contact Level will charge Customer’s credit card (or issue an invoice if Contact Level approves such an arrangement) for the Initial Term service fee and will thereafter automatically bill Customer’s credit card (or issue an invoice to Customer) in the amount of Renewal Term service fees as follows:
(a) every 30 days for monthly accounts,
(b) every 3 months for quarterly accounts, or
(c) every 12 months on the subsequent anniversary for annual accounts.
The renewal fee will be equal to the then-current service fee in effect at the time of such renewal. Fees for other services will be charged on an as-quoted basis. Contact Level’ fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and Customer shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties, excluding only United States (federal or state) taxes based solely on Contact Level’ income. Customer agrees to provide Contact Level with complete and accurate billing and contact information.
Accurate billing information includes Customer’s legal company name, street address, e-mail address, and name and telephone number of an authorized billing contact. Customer agrees to update this information within 30 days of any change to it. If the contact information Customer has provided is false or fraudulent, Contact Level reserves the right to terminate Customer’s access to the Service in addition to any other legal or equitable remedies it may have.
For credit card payers, service fees shall accrue at the start of the Initial Term. and Customer’s credit card will be charged at that time. Should Customer terminate its services within a current billing cycle, the only one last bill would occur on the next bill date. If Customer has been approved for payment by invoice, invoices will be generated at the start of the Initial Term, and thereafter approximately one month in advance of the start of any Renewal Term and shall be due within 30 days.
Customer account will be considered delinquent (in arrears) if payment in full is not received within 30 days of the date of the invoice. If Customer believes that the bill is incorrect, Customer must notify Contact Level in writing within 60 days of the invoice date of the invoice containing the amount in question to be eligible to receive an adjustment or credit to email@example.com .
Email Marketing billing will reflect the current pricing tier of the customer and is based on the number of contacts in the customer’s database. If customer signs up for a pricing tier and exceeds above or drops below that pricing tier, billing will be adjusted to reflect that pricing tier automatically for the next billing cycle.
CRM billing will reflect the current number of users at $30.00 per month per user. During a trial period of 15 days, the admin account is the only user available prior to an active subscription. Once an account is subscribed, additional users can be added. The trial period will continue until the end of the 15 days and the bill date assigned at the end of the trial. Any users added on an active account will be billed on the next bill date.
Data, Consulting and Professional Services billing will reflect what is agreed upon between Contact Level and the Customer at which an invoice generated that includes payment type and terms.
3.2 Non-Payment and Suspension In addition to any other rights granted to Contact Level herein, Contact Level reserves the right to suspend or terminate this Agreement and Customer’s access to the Services if Customer’s account becomes thirty (30) days or more delinquent (falls into arrears). Delinquent invoices (accounts in arrears) are subject to interest of 1.5% per month on any outstanding balance, or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is less, plus all expenses of collection, including attorney’s fees. Customer will continue to be charged service fees during any period of suspension. If Customer or Contact Level initiates termination of this Agreement, Customer will be obligated to pay the balance due on Customer’s account computed in accordance with the Charges and Payment of Fees section above.
Customer agrees that Contact Level may charge such unpaid fees to Customer’s credit card or otherwise bill Customer for such unpaid fees. Contact Level reserves the right to impose a re-connection fee in the event Customer’s account is suspended and thereafter requests access to the Services. Customer agrees and acknowledges that Contact Level has no obligation to retain Customer data and that such Customer data may be irretrievably deleted if Customer’s account is 30 days or more delinquent.
