Term; Subscription Fees; Termination.
- Subscription Fee. For use of the Service, you are required to pay the annual, quarterly, or monthly subscription fee, as the case may be, (the “Fees”) associated with the level of the Service selected at the time you entered in this Agreement. Fees vary by the applicable subscription term that you have purchased, and current fee schedules are available on the Starchive website (www.starchive.io). The Fees will be billed on the monthly, quarterly or annual anniversary (“Billing Date”) of the date you accept the terms of this Agreement and provide your payment method in your Registration Information. If the Billing Date is not possible for a given month (for example, if your monthly anniversary is the 31st) you will be invoiced on the next day. You agree that Digital ReLab may charge all Fees to your payment method. You will receive an email notification of each charge made against your payment method.
- Term and Termination. The effective date of this Agreement shall be the date you agree to these terms. This agreement shall automatically renew in annual, monthly, or quarterly periods, as the case may be according to the level of Service selected unless you cancel your subscription before the last day of the then-current term of the Service. You may terminate the subscription and this Agreement by visiting your profile and selecting the option to cancel the Service; this termination will take effect at the end of the month, quarter, or annual term, as the case may be. Your access to the Service is provided contingent upon receipt of the applicable Fees. No refunds will be provided in connection with a termination of your subscription. Digital ReLab may cancel your account and terminate your subscription at any time if, in its sole discretion, it determines you have breached the terms of this Agreement. Upon termination of this Agreement, the license to the Service shall immediately terminate and You shall cease all use of the Service.
- Storage upon Termination. Upon termination of your subscription, all content stored or posted in connection with the Service will be subject to deletion by Digital ReLab. Upon termination of your subscription, you are responsible for transfer of all your content out of the system before the last day of your then-current subscription. In the event that your subscription is involuntarily terminated by Digital ReLab, you will have thirty (30) days to transfer all content to alternate storage. DIGITAL RELAB WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY FOR LOST OR DAMAGED CONTENT IN THE EVENT THAT YOU FAIL TO TRANSFER CONTENT BEFORE THE LAST DAY OF YOUR TERMINATED SUBSCRIPTION.
- Changes to the Fees. The Fees for the Service may change from time to time subject only to your right to terminate your subscription in accordance with the terms herein. You will be provided with not less than sixty (60) days’ notice by email of any increase in the monthly, quarterly, or annual rate, as the case may be. Your continuation of the subscription term will be deemed an acceptance of any price increase. Additionally, your fees may increase as a result of your selection and purchase of additional products from Digital ReLab or expansion of the Service (e.g., additional storage capacity), or automatically increased if your account exceeds the storage capacity provided for the Service you selected. Digital ReLab automatically increases storage Fees in metered blocks as defined in the plan you selected. You may review your cumulative storage total at any time from within your account. You must keep the email address associated with your Profile up to date.
- Taxes. You are responsible for payment of all applicable Fees incurred by your account. At this time, Digital ReLab does not collect a sales and/or use tax for providing you access to the Service, but it may do so in the future. If any tax is to be paid to state or local governments by your purchase of the Service, it is your responsibility to report and make such tax payments in compliance with all applicable laws. In the event that Digital ReLab collects any taxes on the sale and or use of the Service, such taxes will be itemized separately on your invoice and/or receipt.
- Non-Refundable. All Fees paid are non refundable except in the event of a billing error or in the event that Digital ReLab unilaterally terminates the Service without cause. In order to be considered a “billing error” you must provide reasonable documentation that shows that you were billed incorrectly and Digital ReLab will promptly correct the error. In the event that Digital ReLab unilaterally terminates the Service without cause, you will receive a pro rata refund of any prepaid amounts for the time period in which the Service is not provided.
- Payment Method. It is your responsibility to notify Digital ReLab if your payment method has changed by making the appropriate changes to your Registration Information. If you do not provide a valid payment method, or if your designated payment method is determined by Digital ReLab to be inactive for any reason, Digital ReLab may immediately discontinue providing the Service to you. You agree not to cause your payment method to reverse or “chargeback” any Fees charged in accordance with this Agreement. If you do so, Digital ReLab may terminate your use of the Service, and you shall reimburse Digital ReLab for any costs incurred in responding to such chargeback, including, without limitation, Digital ReLab’s actual costs paid to the payment method company, including chargeback fees, and the value of the time Digital ReLab employees spend on the matter as determined in good faith at Digital ReLab’s sole discretion.
