In addition to the free services provided on the Site, including feature-limited services or trial periods, paid subscriptions are offered that require payment. Where payment is required, the following additional terms and conditions will apply. Paid subscriptions commence at the end of any free services or grace periods provided or offered by Company. All subscriptions require an annual commitment. Month-to-month subscriptions are not offered at this time.
Billing and Payment
Company will use the credit card information you provide to bill you for goods and services fourteen (14) days after your initial order. This fourteen (14) day grace or trial period will permit you access on a paid subscription or subscription basis subject to payment in full of the applicable fees. By registering for the paid subscriptions and providing Your credit card details, You agree to be billed by us for Your for-fee service as provided herein and during the order process. It is Your sole obligation to provide accurate and complete credit card information, and to timely update Your Account with any changes to such information.
After Your initial subscription commitment period, and again after any subsequent subscription period, your subscription will automatically continue for an additional equivalent period, at the price you agreed to when subscribing or in accordance with LobbyGov's then-current pricing structure. You agree that your account will be subject to this automatic renewal feature. If you do not wish your account to renew automatically, or if you want to change or terminate Your subscription, please contact email@example.com. If you cancel your subscription at any time, you may use your subscription until the end of your then-current subscription term; your subscription will not be renewed after your then-current term expires. You won't be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then-current subscription period. Paid subscriptions cannot be transferred to any other account. By subscribing to the paid membership, you authorize Company to bill the credit card you provided now and again at the beginning of any subsequent subscription period. You also authorize Company to charge you for any sales or similar taxes that may be imposed on your subscription payments. If you terminate a paid subscription you may continue using the Services on a free or no-charge basis based on then-current offerings by Company.
Reaffirmation of Authorization
Your non-termination or continued use of the paid subscriptions reaffirms that Company is authorized to charge the credit card information provided. Company may submit those charges for payment and you will be responsible for such charges. This does not waive Company's right to seek payment directly from you. Your charges may be payable in advance, in arrears, per usage, or as otherwise described when you initially subscribed to the paid subscriptions.
Invoice Billing and Payment by Check
On a case-by-case basis, Company may send you an invoice electronically or by mail for your subscription. This is done as a courtesy and is not offered to all subscribers. Payment of invoices by check instead of credit card may also be accepted on a case-by-case basis. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about this.
Termination of Services for Non-Payment or Violation of Terms
Where payment is required for a paid subscription and we are unable to charge Your credit card for any reason, we may discontinue any and all Services provided to paid subscription accounts to You either temporarily or permanently, or allow You to continue using the Services on a free or no-charge basis based on then-current offerings by Company. Company reserves the right to immediately terminate Your account if you use multiple trial accounts or otherwise violate these Terms of Service.
Cancellation of Services
If You cancel your account, your paid subscription will be cancelled. All payments for paid subscriptions are non-refundable. You will not be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the unused paid services. Where billing for a service is recurring on a monthly, yearly or other periodic basis, the unused portion of the current service period will not be refunded. Paid subscriptions cannot be transferred to any other account.
Company offers several service plan options for contract lobbyists and organizations. Contract lobbyist plans are for those individuals and companies that represent one or more clients on a contract lobbying basis. Organizations include trade associations, nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and corporations that do not represent clients. It is incumbent upon you to select a plan that falls in the appropriate category. Failure to do so may subject your subscription to termination or suspension without refund.
Individual service plans have various limitations and offerings that vary. If at any time Company determines that you are using features or offerings outside of the service plan you have subscribed for, Company reserves the right to bill you for the proper plan and suspend or terminate your subscription without refund.
Granting Access to Others
Your subscription may include the ability to create subusers and multiple tracking lists. These features are to be used by those within your company or organization. They are not intended to allow others to use the features of your subscription without a subscription of their own. Company from time to time may audit your account to ensure compliance with this. Company may suspend or terminate your subscription without refund if it determines you are violating this provision.
