6. Export of System or Technical Data
Client may not remove or export from the United States or allow the export or re-export of the System, or any direct product thereof, including technical data, in violation of any restrictions, laws, or regulations of the United States or any other applicable country.
7. Fees and Payment; Upgrade, Downgrade and Cancellation of System
7.1 Fees. In consideration of the System provided, Client will pay Maker System all fees due according to the prices and terms listed on the Platform. Fees for use of the System are PREPAID and NON-REFUNDABLE FOR THE TERM OF SYSTEM USAGE PURCHASED. UPON ANY TERMINATION BY CLIENT, MAKER SYSTEM DOES NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR ANY USE OF THE SYSTEM NOT YET PERFORMED. Maker System reserves the right to modify its pricing and terms at any time, and such changes or modifications will be posted on this website and effective immediately upon the next renewal, or upgrade or downgrade of the System with and/or without notice to Client.
7.2 Taxes. All fees are exclusive of all federal, state, foreign and/or other governmental sales, goods and System, harmonized or other taxes, fees or charges.
7.3 Billing Policies and Cycles. All billing invoices and payment notifications will be maintained directly in Client’s Account Portal. The billing cycle begins on the day Client converts to a paid store and is due on that day each month, partial year or year thereafter, based on the System plan selected. Billing related to the purchase of SSL’s, Domain, and/or professional System are billed once these products/System have been purchased by Client.
7.4 Payment. Client agrees to pay Maker System via PayPal or by sending payment in the form of a check to 2701 Lawrence St Suite 122, Denver, CO 80205. Fees will be payable on a monthly basis. Maker System fees are prepaid and NON-REFUNDABLE. MAKER SYSTEM DOES NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR ANY PARTIAL DAYS, MONTHS OR YEARS.
7.5 Unpaid Accounts. Unpaid amounts are subject to a late payment charge of 1.5% per month, or the maximum legal rate allowed by law, whichever is less. If payment is not received within 30 calendar days of the billing date, Maker System will automatically revoke access to Client’s account. Maker System may or may not contact Client directly to notify Client of its unpaid account. Accounts past due over 90 days will automatically be deactivated.
7.6 Disputed Charges/Billing Inquiries. It is Client’s obligation to review all charges for accuracy. Client has 30 days from the date of billing to contact Maker System and/or dispute the charge. Failure to do so within the specified time frame will constitute Client’s agreement that all charges are valid and Client thereby waives any claims it may have had regarding such charge.
7.7 Upgrades. Should Client elect to upgrade its System or if Client is automatically upgraded pursuant to the last sentence of this Section 7.7, the commencement date of the next renewal period will remain the same; however, Client will be billed immediately for the pro-rata portion of the upgraded System fee for the remainder of the current billing period. For example, if a month-to-month Client is billed on October 9th for monthly System from October 9th to November 8th, and such Client’s account is upgraded effective on October 30th, then such Client will be charged immediately for the pro-rata usage of the upgraded plan from October 30th to November 8th. On November 9th such Client will be charged for the full monthly fee amount of the upgraded plan. In addition, if a Client exceeds his, her or its storage limitation or other stated limitations for their System plan for two consecutive billing periods, such Client will be automatically upgraded effective at the commencement of the next billing period to a System plan that accommodates such Client’s greatest storage usage or other applicable usage limit for such period.
7.8 Downgrades. Should Client elect to downgrade its System, the downgrade will take effect on the commencement of the next renewal period. In other words, Maker System DOES NOT provide credits or refunds on downgrades that are effective during the applicable billing period (whether such period is a month, quarter or year). For example, if a month-to-month Client is billed on October 9th for System from October 9th to November 8th and such Client downgrades the System effective on October 30th, then the downgrade will take effect on the next billing date, i.e. November 9th.
7.9 Cancellations. Client’s use System will continue in effect until Client validly terminates the System. Client must notify Maker System of its intent to terminate System at least 30 calendar days before the billing renewal date. If notice is not received before such date, System will automatically renew for the subsequent renewal period.
For example, if a month-to-month Client is billed on October 9th for monthly System from October 9th to November 8th and such Client provides a valid notice to terminate its account on November 6th, Client will automatically be charged for System from November 9th to December 8th and the System will terminate on December 8th. If the same Client provides notice to terminate its account on November 4th, then the account will terminate on November 8th and such Client will not be charged for any further System on such account.
