Internet Access Charges. You are responsible for any costs you incur to access the internet.
4. Project Go Subscriptions and Billing Some services involves charging a feeto the users in order to view Content that Simple Pickup would not otherwise be able to make available without charging a fee. As part of that, access to the Content in Project Go requires payment by you of a subscription fee. You agree that your Project Go account is for individual use only and your Project Go account is limited to only one simultaneous stream at a time.
Additionally, you agree that for various reasons, such as restrictions from content licensors and other limitations or considerations from third parties, certain Content that may be accessible through one Property may not be accessible through other Properties.
Billing. By signing up for your Project Go subscription, you are expressly agreeing that we are authorized to charge you a monthly subscription fee, any other fees for additional services you may purchase, and any applicable taxes in connection with your use of Project Go to the credit card or other payment method accepted by Simple Pickup (“Payment Method”) that you provided during registration. If your Payment Method expires and you do not edit your Payment Method information or cancel your account, you authorize us to continue billing, and you will remain responsible for any uncollected amounts.
We automatically bill your Payment Method each month on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your subscription. However, if you change your Payment Method, this could result in changing the calendar day upon which you are billed. In the event your subscription began on a day not contained in a given month, we bill your Payment Method on the last day of such month. For example, if you became a paying subscriber on January 31, your Payment Method would next be billed on February 28.
You acknowledge that the amount billed each month may vary due to promotional offers, changes in your subscription plan, and changes in applicable taxes, and you authorize us to charge your Payment Method for the corresponding amounts. If Simple Pickup changes the subscription fee or other charges for Project Go from time to time, we will give you advance notice of these changes by email. However, we will not be able to notify you of changes in any applicable taxes.
All fees and charges are nonrefundable except in connection with your early cancellation of the account as further described in “Ongoing Subscription” below. Very rarely, if there are special circumstances where Simple Pickup determines it is appropriate, we may provide credits to affected subscribers. The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at Simple Pickup’s sole and absolute discretion, and the provision of credits in one instance does not entitle anyone to credits in the future under similar or different circumstances.
Ongoing Subscription and Cancellation. Your Project Go subscription will continue in effect on a month-to-month basis unless and until you cancel your subscription or the account or service is otherwise suspended or discontinued pursuant to these Terms. You must cancel your subscription before it renews each month in order to avoid the next month’s billing. We will bill the monthly subscription fee plus any applicable taxes to the Payment Method you provide to us during registration (or to a different Payment Method if you change your account information).
If you cancel your subscription, you will not receive a refund for that month the subscription has billed and your access to Project Go will cease for the remainder of that month, and you will not receive a refund prorated for the number of days remaining in the month during which you cancelled.
Unpaid Amounts. In order to sustain the Project Go service, it is important that each user of the Project Go service honor the payment obligations to which the user agreed. Accordingly, we reserve the right to pursue any amounts you fail to pay in connection with Project Go. You will remain liable to Simple Pickup for all such amounts and all costs we incur in connection with the collection of these amounts, including, without limitation, collection agency fees, reasonable attorneys’ fees, and arbitration or court costs.
Free Trials. On occasion, we may be authorized to offer the use of Project Go through free trials for certain qualifying users. If we offer you a free trial, the specific terms of your free trial will be stated in the marketing material describing the particular free trial. We are unable to accommodate combining free trials with any other offers.
Once your free trial period ends, we will begin billing your Payment Method for monthly subscription fees corresponding to your subscription plan (plus any applicable taxes), unless you cancel prior to the end of your free trial. For that reason, unless otherwise indicated in the free trial description, you may be asked to set up a valid Payment Method when redeeming a free trial offer.
It is very important to understand that you will not receive a notice from Simple Pickup that your free trial subscription has ended or that your paying subscription has begun. If you wish to avoid charges to your Payment Method, you must cancel Project Go prior to midnight Eastern Time on the last day of your free trial period. You can cancel your account by logging into your payment method account (i.e. PayPal) and cancelling your subscription. We will continue to bill your Payment Method on a monthly basis for your subscription plan until you cancel or the account or service is otherwise suspended or discontinued pursuant to these Terms. You may cancel your subscription at anytime.
To the extent Project Go subscriptions are offered in conjunction with purchases of, or payment for, third party products or services, you agree that Simple Pickup will not be liable to you for any claims arising out of or related to your purchase or use of such third party products or services.
