By using any of the Services you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you are using the Services on behalf of an organisation, you are agreeing to these Terms for that organisation and promising to Profitpoint Solutions that you have the authority to bind that organisation to these Terms (in which event, “you” and “your” will refer to that organisation) unless that organisation has a separate paid contract in effect with us, in which event the terms of that contract will govern your use of the Service. You may use the Services only in compliance with these Terms and only if you have the power to form a contract with Profitpoint Solutions and are not barred under any applicable laws from doing so. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS, YOU MUST NOT USE THE SERVICE. If you have any questions concerning this Agreement, please contact email@example.com
Please note that Profitpoint Solutions doesn’t provide warranties for the Service. This contract also limits our liability to you. See Sections 14 and 16 for details.

Therefore, we encourage you to check the date of these Terms whenever you visit www.profitpointsolutions.com (the “Site“) to see if these Terms have been updated.

The fees applicable for Service (“Fees“) are available at the Site and as published within the Service. The price stated for the Service excludes all taxes and charges, unless stated otherwise. You’re responsible for any taxes and for all other charges (for example, data charges and currency exchange settlements). You will pay the Fees in the currency Profitpoint Solutions quoted for your account. Profitpoint Solutions reserves the right to change the quoted currency at any time.
In addition to any Fees, you may still incur charges incidental to using the Service, for example, charges for Internet access, data roaming, and other data transmission charges.
You must be authorised to use the payment method that you enter when you create a billing account. You authorise us to charge you for the Service using your payment method and for any paid feature of the Service that you choose to sign up for or use while these Terms are in force. We may bill: (a) at the time of purchase; or (d) on a recurring basis for the Services. Also, we may charge you up to the amount you’ve approved, and we’ll notify you in advance of the difference for any recurring Services. We may bill you simultaneously for more than one of your prior billing periods. Once we have informed you that the Service will be provided indefinitely or automatically renewed, we may automatically renew your Service and charge you for any renewal term.
You must keep all information in your billing account current. You can access and modify your billing account information using the Administrative Panel. You may change your payment method at any time. If you tell us to stop using your payment method and we no longer receive payment from you for the paid Service, we may cancel the Service. Your notice to us will not affect charges we submit to your billing account before we reasonably could act on your request.
We’ll notify you in advance, either through the Service or to the email address you have most recently provided to us, if we change the price of the Service. If there’s a specific length and price for your Service offer, that price will remain in force for that time. After the offer period ends, your use of the Service will be charged at the new price. If your Service is on a period basis (for example, monthly) with no specific length, we’ll notify you of any price change at least 30 days in advance. If you don’t agree to these changes, you must cancel and stop using the Service.
Payments for Services are prepaid and are non-refundable. This includes accounts that are renewed. Users retain the responsibility for maintaining updated billing information. If not complied with a user’s account may be deactivated and all files will no longer be retrievable.
Payments are to be effected by credit card.
20.1. Severability; Entire Agreement
These Terms apply to the maximum extent permitted by relevant law. If a court holds that we cannot enforce a part of these Terms as written, you and we will replace those terms with similar terms to the extent enforceable under the relevant law, but the rest of these Terms will remain in effect. This is the entire contract between you and us regarding the Service. It supersedes any prior contract or oral or written statements regarding your use of the Service.

The failure of either party to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any of the provisions of these Terms or to exercise any rights or remedies under these Terms will not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment to any extent of such party’s right to assert or rely upon any such provision, right or remedy in that or any other instance; rather, the same will remain in full force and effect.
