An Order will become binding when it is executed by the Customer and accepted by Company. Company may accept an Order by commencing performance of the requested Services. The Services will begin on the Start Date. Customer may purchase additional Services, software, and equipment through execution of additional Orders.
    2. Term. The Term of this Agreement will commence on the Effective Date and continue until the last Order is terminated or expires, unless terminated earlier in accordance with its terms.
    3. Services Term and Automatic Renewal. The Services Term will begin on the Start Date of the initial Order and continue for the initial term set forth in the initial Order (“Initial Term”). Upon expiration of the Initial Term, recurring Services will automatically renew for successive periods of the same length as the Initial Term (each a “Renewal Term”) unless the Customer gives notice of non-renewal at least thirty (30) days before the expiration of the Initial Term or the then-current Renewal Term or as is otherwise agreed upon in the Order. The term of any recurring Services added after the initial Order is submitted will start on the Start Date of the subsequent Order, will run conterminously with the then-current Term of any preexisting Services, and will be billed on the same billing cycles as the preexisting Services.
  3. INVOICING AND PAYMENT.
    1. Prices and Charges.
      1. All prices are identified in US dollars. Additional charges may result if Customer activates additional features, exceeds usage thresholds, or purchases additional Services or equipment. Customer will be liable for all charges resulting from use of the Services on its account.
      2. Recurring charges for the Services begin on the Start Date and will continue for the Term. Recurring charges (such as charges for phone numbers, product licenses, minute bundles, and equipment rental fees) will, once incurred, remain in effect for the then-current Term. Company will provide notice of any proposed increase in such charges no later than sixty (60) days before the end of the Initial Term or then-current Renewal Term, and any such increase will be effective on the first day of the next Renewal Term. Administrative Fees that Company is entitled to pass on to its customers as a surcharge pursuant to applicable laws may be increased on thirty (30) days’ written notice.
    2. Billing and Payment
      1. All Services and equipment must be purchased via valid credit or debit card at the time of purchase. By providing a valid credit or debit card, Customer is expressly authorizing all Services and Equipment charges and fees to be charged to such payment card, including recurring payments billed on a monthly or annual basis. This authorization will remain valid until 30 calendar days after you terminate our authority to charge your payment method. In addition, Customer’s provided credit card shall be used for any in-month purchases of additional services and products, or where Customer has exceeded usage or threshold limits, and any overage charges. Recurring charges are billed to the credit or debit card associated with your account monthly in advance for those Services and Equipment in the following month. Credit and debit card payments are subject to the approval of the card issuer, and Company will not be liable in any way if a card issuer refuses to accept a credit or debit card for any reason. Customer is responsible for any credit card chargeback or similar fees for refused or rejected payments that Company is entitled to charge under this Agreement. If the payment card associated with Customer’s account is declined or fails for any reason, Company will send Customer a notice using the contact information associated with Customer’s account. Company may continue to attempt charging Customer’s payment card for outstanding charges and additional fees along with any other rights and remedies available to Company under this Agreement, at law or in equity.
      2. Unless otherwise stated at the time of purchase or on the billing statement, payment is due in full, without deduction or set-off, within thirty (30) days of the date on the billing statement. Any payment not made when due may be subject to a late payment fee equivalent to the lesser of (i) one and a half percent (1.5%) per month; or (ii) the highest rate allowed by law. Company’s acceptance of late or partial payments (regardless of how they are marked or designated (including without limitation as ‘Paid in Full’, ‘Accord and Satisfaction’, or similarly)) will not waive, limit, or prejudice in any way Company’s rights to collect any amount due. Company may terminate the Services and this Agreement for non-payment if any fees or charges are not paid within thirty (30) days of the due date.
    3. Taxes. All rates, fees, and charges are exclusive of applicable Taxes, for which Customer is solely responsible. Taxes may vary based on jurisdiction and the Services provided. Taxes, access fees, universal service or other recovery fees, or similar charges will be adjusted on the date in which those increases become effective as mandated by competent authority. If any withholding tax is levied on the payments, then Customer must increase the sums paid to Company so that the amount received by Company after the withholding tax is deducted is the full amount Company would have received if no withholding or deduction had been made.
    4. Billing Disputes. If a Customer reasonably and in good faith disputes any portion of Company’s charges, it must provide written notice to Company within thirty (30) days of the billing date, identifying the reason for the dispute and the amount being disputed. Customer’s dispute as to any portion of the billing statement will not excuse Customer’s obligation to timely pay the undisputed portion of the billing statement. Upon resolution, Customer must pay any unpaid amounts within thirty (30) days. Any amounts that are found to be in error resulting in an over-payment by the Customer will be applied as a billing credit against future charges. Customer will be reimbursed any such outstanding billing credits at the expiration or termination of this Agreement.
