6. Subscription Fees and Payment Processing

  1. Payment of Subscription Fees and Automatic Renewal; Cancelling your Subscription      
    The amount of the monthly Subscription Fees for each level (Starter, Professional and Scale) are available on the Practice Ignition Website and are firm and will be displayed and charged in the following currencies: Australian Dollars for accounts in Australia, Pounds Sterling for accounts in the U.K, Canadian Dollars for accounts in Canada, and U.S. Dollars for all other locations. Your currency may be converted to other currencies upon payment depending on your location and / or credit card agreement. By signing up for a Subscription you agree to pay the Subscription Fees presented to you upon signing up, plus any applicable taxes.      

    You will be charged the Subscription Fees on the day you agree to pay for your Subscription (the “Initial Billing Date”), which shall only be at the end of the Free Trial Period if you agree to upgrade to a Subscription during the Free Trial period. The Subscription Fees shall subsequently be charged on the monthly or yearly anniversary of the Initial Billing Date, as applicable depending on which option you have chosen. The payment period of your subscription, whether a month or a year, shall be referred to in the present TOU as a “Billing Period”.      

    Your Subscription automatically renews at the end of every Billing Period. If you wish to cancel your Subscription and avoid paying the Subscription Fees for the next Billing Period, you must do so prior to the end of the current Billing Period, no later than 24 hours prior to the end of the Billing Period, so that your credit card will not be charged again. You can cancel your Subscription and avoid paying the Subscription Fees for the next Billing Period by accessing the Subscription information section in your dashboard when you are a Logged-in User, or by emailing [email protected]       

    If you cancel your Subscription prior to the end of the Billing Period, you shall not be entitled to any refund of any Subscription Fees already paid for that Billing Period, prorated or otherwise.  
     
  2. Billing Information and Payment Processing      
    In order to pay your Subscription Fees through the Services, you will be required to enter your first name, last name, email, phone number, billing address, credit card number, credit card expiry date, and card security code (CVC). This may be referred to in these TOU or the Privacy Policy as “Billing Information”.       

    All payments are made using a secure https:// connection, and payment processing is handled through the “Third-Party Payment ProcessorStripe though this is subject to change without notice, and your Subscription is managed by Recurly. The Third-Party Payment Processor currently accepts certain credit cards as payment options but these are subject to change without notice. Once transactions are accepted by the Third-Party Payment Processor, they are processed in accordance with their program rules and procedures and Terms of Use. Practice Ignition and the Third-Party Payment Processor and Recurly are unaffiliated companies and Practice Ignition has no influence on the operations of the Third-Party Payment Processor or Recurly. Practice Ignition and / or its Representatives shall in no way be held responsible for any losses or damages, direct or indirect, pecuniary or otherwise, resulting from any error or failure on the part of the Third-Party Payment Processor or Recurly.       

    All Billing Information is collected by the Third-Party Payment Processor, on their own secured servers. Practice Ignition does not have access to any credit card information, nor can it be responsible for any breach of information caused by faulty programming or malicious users on the servers of the Third-Party Payment Processor. Non-financial information will, however, be available to Practice Ignition for invoice-making and record-keeping purposes.      

    If you have a valid coupon code, it shall be applied and displayed during the payment process. In the event that an incorrect discount is applied, Practice Ignition reserves the right to refuse or cancel any Subscriptions listed at an incorrect discount. Practice Ignition reserves the right to refuse or cancel any such Subscriptions whether or not the Subscription has been confirmed and the User’s credit card charged.      
     
  3. Payment of Additional Fees for Active Clients      
    Your Subscription grants you a maximum number of Active Clients during the Billing Period, which is different for each level as described on the Practice Ignition Website. In the event that you exceed the maximum number of Active Clients in the Billing Period, you shall be charged for each additional Active User the fees described on the Practice Ignition Website (the “Additional Client Fees”). By signing up for a Subscription, you authorize Practice Ignition to charge your credit card and you agree to pay such Additional Client Fees if applicable, plus any applicable taxes.
     
  4. Failure of Automatic Payment      
    Should automatic payment of any Subscription Fees or Additional Client Fees fail to occur for any reason, your account will be suspended, and Practice Ignition will issue you an electronic invoice via email indicating that you must proceed manually, within a certain deadline date, with the full payment of the Fees as indicated on the invoice. Your account will be reactivated upon receipt of the payment.       
     
  5. Modification of the Fees      
    Practice Ignition, in its sole discretion and at any time, may modify the Subscription Fees and/or the Additional Client Fees. Any Subscription Fees and/or Additional Client Fees modification(s) will become effective at the end of the then-current Billing Period. Practice Ignition will provide you with a reasonable prior notice of any change in Subscription Fees and/or Additional Client Fees to give you an opportunity to terminate your Subscription before such modification(s) becomes effective. Your continued use of the Services after the Subscription Fees and/or Additional Client Fees modification(s) comes into effect constitutes your agreement to pay the modified Subscription Fees and/or Additional Client Fees.
