a. Payment Term and Changes
In exchange for BBS’s Content and /or other information which you will be provided to you via electronic mail, BBS will charge you a non-refundable subscription fee according to the rate schedule agreed upon between you and BBS at the time your subscription commenced. The fee to register as a Subscriber on the Website is assessed on a monthly basis. The subscription fee is calculated from the day upon which Subscriber’s paid subscription commences. Subscriber agrees that if Subscriber applies for a seven (7) day free trial subscription (“Trial Subscription “) and does not cancel such Trial Subscription, Subscriber authorizes BBS to convert the Subscriber’s Trial Subscription into a regular paid subscription for the term selected, effective seven (7) days, or one hundred sixty-eight (168) hours following Subscriber’s initiation of the Trial Subscription. Subscriber hereby authorizes BBS to charge Subscriber’s credit card, debit card or bank account, in advance, for the amount of Subscriber’s regular subscription fee for each agreed term of the Subscriber’s selected subscription term. The subscription fee, when paid, is non-refundable and accrues on the first day of each term or successive renewal term until canceled, regardless of whether or not the Subscriber actually uses the Website, the Services or the Content. Notwithstanding the language in this paragraph, if a subscription resulted from a special introductory promotional offer, then the terms of that specific promotional offer shall control.
Subscriber may use the Trial Subscription for one time only.
From time to time at its sole discretion, BBS may offer different subscription terms on its Website, and the subscription fees for such subscriptions may vary.
Others services on the Website, whether offered by BBS, Third Party Websites or others, may require additional fees or charges.
b. On Time Payment
Subscriber is required to pay all charges on time, and agrees to submit an accompanying payment authorization in connection with these charges when requested by BBS. Credit card transactions require an acceptable and currently working/continuously valid credit card number/account. BBS may terminate or disable Subscriber’s subscription if Subscriber fails to pay fully and in a timely manner all amounts due to BBS. If Subscriber’s credit card expires or is otherwise declined for payment, access to the Services, Content and Website may be modified, suspended or cancelled, in BBS’s sole discretion and without notice to Subscriber. If any Subscriber payment is more than thirty (30) calendar days past due, interest pro-rated daily, at the rate of 15 percent per annum on such past due amounts, or the maximum allowable by law, whichever is less, shall accrue, and the entire amount of unpaid charges, plus this assessment, will become immediately due and payable. Subscriber shall pay all costs incurred by BBS with respect to collection of any past due amount, including legal fees. All fees are quoted and payable in United States Dollars. Subscriber is also responsible for paying all applicable taxes for Services and/or Content, and any other costs incurred in connection with the use of or access to the Website.
c. Payment Methods
Subscribers complete subscription online payment through a third party provider (“Payment Processor”). The Payment Processor may require specific information to include, but not limited to, name, email address, billing address, telephone number and credit card in order to process payments. The Payment Processor accepts most major credit cards and may accept bank drafts. The Subscriber shall be subject to the terms of a separate agreement between the Subscriber and the Payment Processor, and BBS has no liability to the Subscriber in relation to the service provided by the Payment Processor.
BBS accepts direct payment through personal checks, money orders, cashiers checks and company checks sent by mail. However, for non-credit card or non-electronic payment methods, BBS does not offer a Trial Subscription and may not credit the applicable account until additional procedures are completed and after BBS’s bank certifies receipt of funds — typically ten (10) business days after receipt of a check. BBS may charge a thirty dollar ($30.00) handling fee, or the maximum allowable by law, whichever is less, for each check returned unpaid for insufficient funds or any other reason.
d. Account Discrepancies
Subscriber may contact BBS by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, telephone at (843) 277-1619, fax at (843) 408-0115 or mail at Bluewater Business Solutions, LLC, 164 Market St. #123, Charleston, SC 29401 concerning charges or other questions regarding the status of Subscriber’s account. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event may Subscriber dispute any charge or account billing hereunder later than ninety (90) days after such questionable account billing or other discrepancy should have been or could have been reasonably discovered by Subscriber. Otherwise, except as required by applicable law, any and all such Subscriber complaints are waived by Subscriber.
7. Term of Subscription
The term of Subscriber’s access to the Website, Services and Content is based upon Subscriber’s express agreement and adherence to these Terms and to Subscriber’s fully paid subscription and/or other fees. Subscriber’s subscription to the Website shall be for the initial term (e.g., monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually) as may be agreed by Subscriber and BBS through online registration, telephone order or otherwise, and shall automatically renew for indefinite successive renewal terms for the same period as the initial term or on a month to month basis, depending on agreed upon terms, unless terminated by Subscriber or BBS in accordance with the provisions of these Terms. However, if Subscriber accepts a special or introductory promotional offer for a subscription, then at the conclusion of the initial term specified in such special introductory promotional offer, the subscription shall automatically renew and Subscriber hereby authorizes BBS to charge Subscriber’s credit card or bank account in advance on a month-to-month basis for indefinite successive renewal terms at the then prevailing regular published monthly retail rate at the time of the subscription commenced until terminated in accordance with the provisions of these Terms.
Subscriber acknowledges and agrees that NO refund, offset or credit will be given for any cancellation of a special introductory promotional offer subscription or for subscription downgrades. If Subscriber registers for a free Trial Subscription, Subscriber agrees to be enrolled into a pre-paid month-to-month subscription at the end of the free trial period if Subscriber has not canceled the Trial Subscription prior to the expiration thereof.
Either BBS or Subscriber may cancel Subscriber’s subscription at any time for any reason (unless otherwise stated in an applicable promotional offer). In the event of termination by Subscriber or by BBS, all fees due to BBS up to the end of the then-current term billing cycle at time of termination shall remain payable to BBS unless otherwise specifically stated in an applicable promotional offer.
Subscriber may terminate subscription by one of five ways that applies to their type of subscription, as follows:
1. All Subscribers may terminate subscription online, using the Payment Processor’s website the Subscriber originally initiated the subscription payment through.
2. All Subscribers may terminate subscription by e-mailing a cancellation request to email@example.com at least five (5) days prior to the desired cancellation date.
3. All Subscribers may terminate subscription by telephoning a cancellation request to (843) 277-1619 during the business hours of 9am to 6pm EST Monday through Friday.
4. All Subscribers may terminate a subscription by faxing a cancellation request to (843) 408-0115 at least five (5) days prior to the desired cancellation date.
5. Only paying Subscribers may terminate by mailing a cancellation request to Bluewater Business Solutions, LLC, 164 Market St. #123, Charleston, SC 29401. Such cancellation will be effective approximately ten (10) days after receipt.
BBS reserves its right to terminate or suspend access to the Services and the Content to any Subscriber whose information BBS believes, at BBS’s sole discretion, to be inaccurate or misleading. If at any time BBS believes, in its sole discretion, that the Subscriber has violated any provision of these Terms, BBS may immediately terminate Subscriber’s subscription and all other Services without any right of Subscriber to a refund or other remedy, and all fees due to BBS up to the end of the then-current billing cycle at the time of such termination shall remain payable to BBS. Such termination will not limit any other right by BBS under contract, tort or any other legal theory to pursue any claim or cause of action against the Subscriber for violating these Terms including, but not limited to, monetary damages, injunctive relief, attorney’s fees and court costs.
