10. CANCELLATION AND SUSPENSION OF ACCOUNT:
Band Builder reserves the right to suspend, cancel, or restrict access to Member Services for any Member or Account paying for the Services according to the terms herein.
Depending on the Subscription Service Order, there may be a one-time fee, recurring fees, or revenue-based fee. For recurring fees, we’ll bill or charge you for in regular automatically-renewing intervals (such as monthly or annually), on a pre-pay basis until you cancel, which you can do at any time by contacting the relevant support team.
Member will pay Band Builder the Subscription fees specified at the time of initial activation of the Membership Subscription at the applicable rate for chosen plan. If Subscriber orders additional Services or changes the Services it is receiving, the fees for such additional or changed services will be charged at the then-current pricing for such additional or changed services and commence on the activation date listed in the Subscription Service Order. Any resulting change in fees shall be reflected in future invoices. All amounts payable under this Agreement are denominated in United States dollars, and Subscriber will pay all such amounts in United States dollars. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, fees are non-refundable. There are no refunds or credits for partial months of Services, plan downgrades, or refunds for unused time if Subscriber closes its account before the end of the term of any Subscription Service Order. Unless otherwise specified in the Subscription Service Order, the Services and any Add-On Services purchased by Subscriber during the Membership Term, will automatically renew for additional periods equal to the length of the Membership Term unless either party provides written notice to the other party at least 30 days prior to the expiration of the Membership Term.
To the extent permitted by law, or unless explicitly stated otherwise, all fees are exclusive of applicable federal, provincial, state, local or other governmental sales, goods and services, harmonized or other taxes, fees, or charges now in force or enacted in the future (“Taxes”). You are responsible for payment of all applicable Taxes relating to your use of our Services, your payments, or your purchases. If we are obligated to pay or collect Taxes on the Fees you’ve paid or will pay, you are responsible for such Taxes, and we may collect payment for such Taxes.
Unless otherwise specified in the applicable Subscription Service Order, Subscriber will pay all amounts due according to the terms in this Section, except for amounts subject to a good faith dispute, provided that (i) Subscriber notifies Band Builder of any such dispute in writing prior to the date such amounts would otherwise be due; (ii) Subscriber pays any undisputed amounts in accordance with this Section; and (iii) Subscriber cooperates with Band Builder in promptly resolving such dispute. Except for any amounts disputed by the Subscriber in good faith, any amount not paid when due will be subject to finance charges equal to one and one-half percent (1.5%) of the unpaid balance per month or the highest rate permitted by applicable law, whichever is less, determined and compounded daily from the date due until the date paid. Subscriber will reimburse any costs or expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred by Band Builder to collect any amount that is not paid when due. Amounts due from Subscriber under this Agreement may not be withheld or offset by Subscriber against amounts due to Subscriber for any reason.
Automatic Renewal – To ensure uninterrupted service, recurring Services are automatically renewed. This means that unless you cancel a paid Service before the end of the applicable subscription period, it will automatically renew, and you authorize us to invoice you or use any payment mechanism we have on record for you to collect the then-applicable subscription fee (as well as any Taxes). By default, your Paid Services will be renewed for the same interval of time as your original subscription period. For example, if you purchase a Band Builder annual plan, you will be charged each year for the following 12-month period. We may charge your account up to one month before the end of the subscription period. It is your responsibility to make sure you are checking your email (including any spam or other filters) in order to receive any reminder email we send to you in advance of renewal. The date for the automatic renewal is determined automatically based on the date of the original purchase (or subsequent plan upgrade) and cannot be changed. You can view your renewal date by visiting your account page.
12. CANCELLATION & REFUNDS:
When you make a payment, you agree to use a valid payment method. If you aren’t happy with Band Builder we offer a 30-day money back guarantee. To request a refund please email email@example.com The 30 day refund period only applies to your first subscription and cannot be used more than once. Once a refund has been requested and processed, the member forfeits the free 30 minute coaching call, if you have not already redeemed it. Members who cancel before accumulating 3 “sessions” (logins), and request a refund will be denied. This is considered an abuse of the money-back guarantee.
You can manage and cancel your Subscription on your Account page. To cancel a Band Builder plan, go to your Account page, click on the plan you wish to cancel, then follow the instructions to “cancel the subscription.” You must repeat this process for each Subscription you wish to cancel. Due to the nature of our service, there are no refunds on monthly or annual plans that have been active for more than 30 days. No partial refunds are given. However, if you terminate an annual Subscription before your renewal date, you will retain access to the Services until the end of your annual payment term.
It is the responsibility of the Membership Subscriber to ensure that you cancel your account in good time should you no longer require the Services.
