10. SUBSCRIPTION TERM, RENEWAL, AND FEES
You agree to pay Us for the Services in accordance with the fees, charges, taxes and billing terms in effect at the time a fee or charge is due and payable. According to the nature of some of Our Services, fees may be required in advance of use as a pay-in-advance subscription (the “Subscription”). Subscriptions to the Services are for an initial term of one (1) month. All fees must be paid in U.S. dollars unless specifically permitted otherwise by Axele. The Subscription is billed in advance on a monthly basis. The Subscription will automatically renew for successive one (1) month increments unless You provide Axele written notice of Your intent to terminate the Subscription at least five (5) days prior to the beginning of the next billing period or the Service will continue through the next billing period.
We will automatically renew and charge Your credit card, withdraw from Your account or issue an invoice to You (whichever form of payment You authorized at the time You set up Your Account) (a) every month for monthly service agreements, (b) every quarter for quarterly service agreements, (c) each year on the subsequent anniversary for annual service agreements, or (d) monthly for annual service agreements. In the event of an early termination of an annual service agreement that is paid monthly, Axele will charge Your credit card for full payment for the remainder of the annual term. Renewal charges for each service agreement will be equal to the then-current service fee, unless We have mutually agreed otherwise. Fees for other services will be charged on an as-quoted basis. Unpaid fees will result in suspension of the Services. Once fees have been paid after suspension, You will be charged going forward at the then current rate for the Service(s).
You may request to cancel the Services at any time. You may either make a cancellation request online through their account from the Billing page, by calling to speak with an Axele representative, or through the chat service. Simply canceling the credit/debit card associated with an Axele account will not cancel the account. Cancellations will take effect on the last day of the billing period in which the cancellation is processed. No portion of a payment will be refunded or prorated at the time a cancellation request is made. Customers are encouraged to keep records of all communications regarding cancellation. Cancellation of an account does not resolve outstanding amounts owed or nullify previously agreed upon charges or fees, such as payments charged in installments or annual contract charges, portions of which may not yet have been invoiced at the time of Your cancellation request. At the time of cancellation, any outstanding amounts owed to Axele must be settled.
Note: If You entered into a signed contract for Your Services, such as an annual contract, please review Your contract for additional obligations. In the event the billing terms in Your signed contract conflict with these Terms, the terms of Your signed contract will govern.
If at any time payment is not received, the Your Access shall terminate immediately upon the end of the last term that was paid (e.g. will terminate on the last day of the billing period), but You shall be liable to Axele for any fees, including Subscription Fees as described in this Section 10.
The fees and any other amounts payable pursuant to the Terms herein are exclusive of all national, state, regional, local municipal or other taxes and fees including, but not limited to, excise, sales, use, property, ad valorem, intangibles, goods and services and value added taxes, customers duties and registration fees, now in force or enacted in the future, and all such taxes and fees, except taxes based on Axele’s net worth, capital or net income, shall be paid directly by You, or if paid by Axele, You will reimburse Axele.
11. REFUND POLICY
For Our subscription-based Services, payment is made in advance for access over a certain period of time, regardless of actual usage. Subscriptions are non-cancellable for the pre-paid period of time and thus, We do not refund fees or pro-rate for partial usage. In the event that you terminate your subscription, your forfeit any payments already made to Us.
We reserve the right to assign Our rights and obligations under these Terms to any subsidiary or affiliate, acquirer of some or all of Axele’s equity, assets or business, or a successor by merger or other operation of law. You may not assign Your Account or any of Your rights or responsibilities under these Terms without Our express written consent. These Terms will inure to the benefit of, be binding upon and be enforceable by Our successors and assigns.
13. THIRD PARTY SERVICES AND CONTENT
14. NETWORK ACCESS, DEVICES AND ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS
You are responsible for acquiring and updating any compatible hardware, data network access, Web browser and email account necessary to access and use the Services and any updates to the Services. You agree to receive information and other materials from Us primarily through Our websites, mobile applications or an email address You provide to us, and You agree to notify Us of changes in Your electronic contact information. Any materials or information provided to You by telephone, mail, facsimile or other means does not constitute a waiver of this contract. We do not guarantee that the Services will function on any particular hardware and the Services may be subject to malfunctions and delays inherent in the use of the Internet and electronic communications. If You access or use the Services from a wireless-enabled device, Your mobile network’s rates and fees may apply.
15. PERFORMANCE OF SERVICES, BACKUP AND RECOVERY OF CUSTOMER DATA, SERVICE LEVEL OBJECTIVES
Axele will use commercially reasonable means to provide the Subscription in line with these Terms and Axele’s service level objectives identified below (the “Service Level Objectives”). Axele reserves the right to support only current versions of the Services in its discretion. Axele’s provision of services related to the Subscription and any technical support therewith shall be contingent on Your full cooperation with Axele and You supplying all information, data, consents and access to Your systems and information, or any derivatives thereof that is made available to Axele or stored as part of the Services or necessary for Axele to integrate or adapt its Services (the “Customer Data”).
You are aware that Customer Data is not stored or maintained by Axele, but is stored by a reputable third party database and data storage provider on behalf of Axele, which maintains their own internal backups, and such backups are subject to certain recovery point objective (“RPO”) and recovery time objective (“RTO”) warranties provided by such third party database and data storage provider. Accordingly, Axele shall not be responsible for loss of any Customer Data for any reason whatsoever.
Axele shall use commercially reasonable efforts to make the Services to You available for 99% of the time in any calendar month. Availability will be calculated per calendar month, as follows (Up Time – Down Time)/(Up Time)*100% (the “Availability”). Axele’s records and data shall be the basis for all Availability calculations and determinations.
(a) “Down Time” shall mean a period of ten (10) consecutive minutes of unavailability of the Services that is not Excluded Time. For the avoidance of doubt, Down Time shall not include unavailability of the Services for a period of less than ten (10) minutes.
(b) “Up Time” means the total number of minutes for a calendar month.
(c) “Excluded Time” means the following:
(i) Any outages caused by factors outside of Axele’s reasonable control, including without limitation, acts of God, acts of government, flood, fire, earthquakes, civil unrest, acts of terror, strikes or other labor problems (other than those involving Axele’s employees);
(ii) Any of the following outages of You or any third parties if not within Axele’s possession or reasonable control (excluding Axeles’ third party database and data storage provider) : computer outages, telecommunication outages, Internet service outage or hosting facility failures, or delays involving hardware, software or power systems, and network intrusions or denial of service attacks;
(iii) Any outages that result from any unauthorized actions or inactions by You or Your employees or any third parties not provided by Axele;
(iv) Any outages caused by programming errors in Your application(s) or by programming bugs in the third-party extensions/modules not developed by Company.
(v) Any outages resulting from scheduled maintenance, if Axele notifies You forty eight (48) hours prior to the commencement of the maintenance.
In the event that in a given month Axele does not meet or exceed the Availability, Axele will provide to You accommodations of additional days of Service to be added to the end of Your Term for the Service, at no charge to You, as a result of Axele’s inability to meet the requisite Availability (the “Accommodations”). Axele will grant such Accommodations as follows:
|Monthly Uptime Percentage||Days of Service added to the end of the Term, at no charge|
|< 99.0% – > 98.0%||1|
|< 98.0% – > 95.0%||3|
For the avoidance of doubt, the aforementioned Accommodations may not be exchanged for, or converted to, monetary amounts.
To request an Accommodation, (a) You must be in good standing with Axele, (b) You must open a technical support ticket by reporting an apparent Service interruption within seventy-two (72) hours of the event, and (c) You must send an email or written Accommodation request to Axele in the calendar month immediately following the month for which You are requesting an Accommodation. Accommodation requests must include Your name, account number, and the dates and specific times for which You are requesting Accommodations. Axele will compare information provided by You to Axele’s records and data. An Accommodation will be issued only if Axele confirms from such data that an Accommodation is available. The limits and sole remedies regarding Accommodations shall be Your sole and exclusive remedy in connection with any level of Service not meeting the Service Level Objectives outlined in these Terms and the Availability therefor.
