The TOS, Affiliate TOS, and/or the AUP may be changed from time to time at the discretion of the Company. Subscriber understands that change to the TOS, Affiliate TOS, and/or AUP by the Company shall not be grounds for early contract termination or non-payment.
This Agreement shall be construed in all respects in accordance with the laws of the state of Delaware, applicable to contracts enforceable in that state.
Disclosure to Law Enforcement: The AUP specifically prohibits the use of our service for illegal activities. Therefore, the Subscriber agrees that the Company may disclose any and all Subscriber information including assigned IP addresses, account history, account use, etc. to any law enforcement agent who makes a written request without further consent or notification to the Subscriber. In addition, Pathfinder IT Services, LLC shall have the right to terminate all service set forth in this Agreement.
Service Rates: Subscriber acknowledges that the nature of the service furnished and the initial rates and charges have been communicated to Subscriber. Subscriber is aware that the Company may prospectively change the specified rates and charges from time to time. Rate decreases are not automatically granted to the Subscriber, but may be granted upon official request by the Subscriber. Any promotional offer is contingent upon the Company achieving and maintaining its cost of service goals including but not limited to rates charged to the company by its suppliers.
Promotion/Coupon Usage: Subscriber acknowledges that any Promotion Code or Coupon Code used is good only for the initial product purchase, and that any upgrade or downgrade performed afterward will be at the current, non-promotional rate.
Service Invoicing: The Subscriber acknowledges that the some services provided are auto-renewing and are clearly shown on the checkout page, and do not automatically cancel at the end of the initial term. Invoices are generated before they are due and are sent via email to the Subscriber's primary email address on file in our billing system. Should subscriber wish to cancel service, the appropriate cancellation procedures must be followed, whcih is noted in the "Account Cancellation" section below.
Communication: The Subscriber acknowledges that email is the primary form of communication used by the Company to contact the Subscriber. You are required to keep your contact information updated. You can modify much of it yourself via our Billing Application used for your service. For the fields you cannot modify yourself, open a Help Desk ticket to our Billing Department with your new information. E-mail is the primary form of communication we will use to contact you. We will only contact you via alternate methods should the Company deem it necessary (Invoice, Suspension or Cancellation Notifications are not deemed necessary, nor are general notifications we send out). The Subscriber also acknowleges that the Company is not liable for the Subscriber not receiving an email and that it is the Subscriber's responsibility to ensure the Subscriber's email provider is properly setup to ensure delivery of emails from our domain name(s), including not flagging emails from our domain name(s) as SPAM.
Payment: Establishment of this service is dependent upon receipt by the Company of payment of stated charges. For Services with Monthly fees subsequent payments are due on the anniversary date of the month for that month's service (extended billing cycles are offered as a convenience to Subscribers, providing a means for a Subscriber to "pre-pay" for a longer period of time). The above applies to all accounts and monthly services provided by Pathfinder IT Services, LLC.
Payments and Fees: All accounts paid using a Credit Card and have a monthly reocurring fee will be auto-charged for any invoice due on your account. Credit cards that are declined for any reason are subject to a $1.00USD declination fee. Service will be suspended on accounts that reach 7 days (2 days for Resellers) past due by an automated process (this time frame is subject to change). The process to reinstate service is NOT necessarily automated and may take up to 24hrs to complete. Service interrupted for nonpayment is subject to a reconnect charge not less than $5.00USD nor more than $200.00USD (depending on the service provided by the Company). Accounts not paid by the due date are subject to a 10% late fee. Accounts that are not collectable by Pathfinder IT Services, LLC may be turned over to an outside collection agency for collection. If your account is turned over for collection, you agree to pay the Company a "Processing and Collection" Fee of not less than $50.00USD nor more than $200.00USD. If you desire to cancel your account, the Subscriber must follow the proper procedure to do this as outlined in this TOS. We only accept payment via PayPal and PayPal Subscriptions. For Resellers, PayPal Subscription payments are not accepted.
Refund and Disputes: All payments to Pathfinder IT Services, LLC are nonrefundable. This includes any one time setup fees and subsequent charges regardless of usage. All overcharges or billing disputes must be reported within 60 days of the time the dispute occurred. If you dispute a charge to your credit card issuer that, in Pathfinder IT Services, LLC's sole discretion is a valid charge under the provisions of the TOS and/or AUP, you agree to pay Pathfinder IT Services, LLC an "Administrative Fee" of not less than $50 nor more than $200.
Failure to Pay: The Company may temporarily deny service or terminate this Agreement upon the failure of the Subscriber to pay charges when due. Such termination or denial will not relieve the Subscriber of responsibility for the payment of all accrued charges, plus reasonable interest and any collection fees.
Everyone: Cancellation requests must be submitted NO LESS THAN 24 hours before your invoice is due, otherwise the cancellation request may not be processed in time to stop the auto-payment process. Should a cancellation request be received with less than 24 hours notice, there is no guarantee the cancellation will go through in time to stop an automated payment to your invoice. Should payment be applied to the invoice because the Cancellation Request was not received with the proper notice, the payment is non-refundable. If the Subscriber submits payment using PayPal Subscriptions, the Subscriber acknowledges that it is solely the Subscriber's responsibility to cancel the Paypal Subscription and any funds sent to us because the PayPal Subscription was not cancelled are non refundable.
Clients: All requests for cancelling accounts must performed by pressing the "Request Cancellation" button within our Billing Application. To click this button, log into Billing, click "My Services" in the menu and then click the "View Details" icon for the item you would like to cancel (the "My Services" page lists one Product or Service per row, with the "View Details" icon being on the far right of the table). Then click the "Request Cancellation" button and complete the form. Sending an email cancellation request or opening a Ticket is NOT an official cancellation request.
Subscriber acknowledges that the service provided is of such a nature that service can be interrupted, altered, deemed unsuable for many reasons other than the negligence of the company and that damages resulting from any interruption of service are difficult to ascertain. Therefore, the Subscriber agrees that the Company shall not be liable for any damages arising from such causes beyond the direct and exclusive control of the Company. The Subscriber further acknowledges that the Company's liability for its own negligence may not, in any event, exceed an amount equivalent to charges payable by the Subscriber for services during the period damages occurred. In no event shall the Company be liable for any special or consequential damages, loss or injury. Furthermore any subscriber that has paid just a one time fee or annual fee for services aknowledges that the service, depending on popularity, may only be available for 6 months.
