BILLING AND PAYMENT.
You may elect one of the following billing options when placing Your order for Services. Forsta may change its offering of billing options, including by limiting or ceasing to offer any billing option, upon thirty days written notice to You (which may be by email). When purchasing our Services, fees are specified at the Services interface “check-out” and in the Order Form(s) — and must be paid in advance. Payment obligations are non-cancelable and, except as expressly stated in this agreement, fees paid are non-refundable. You may pay for the Services using the payment options listed below:
- Monthly Plan.If You selects this option, You will not be committed to purchase the Services for a pre-defined term, but will pay for the Services on a monthly basis. Any partial day of Services usages will be rounded up to a full day of Services usage for the purposes of calculating Fees. New account members added partway through the billing cycle will only be charged for the portion of the time period they are a user of the Service.
- Annual Plan.If You selects this option, You will be committed to purchasing the Services from Forsta for an annual term. Forsta will bill You according to the terms associated with Your elections on the Order Page. Any partial day of Services usages will be rounded up to a full day of Services usage for the purposes of calculating Fees. New account members added partway through the billing cycle will only be charged for portion of the time period they are a user of the Service.
All payments due are in U.S. dollars unless otherwise indicated on the Order Page or invoice. Payment Plan will be auto-renewed unless You request in writing to cancel or change plan three days prior to auto-renewal date.
- Credit Card or Debit Card. Fees for orders where You are paying with a credit card, debit card or other non-invoice form of payment, are due at the start of the month during which You received the Services.
- Invoices. Payments for invoices are due thirty days after the invoice date, unless otherwise specified, and are considered delinquent after such date.
- Other Forms of Payment. You may change Your payment method to those available within the Forsta Admin Console. Forsta may enable other forms of payment by making them available in the Forsta Admin Console. These other forms of payment may be subject to additional terms which You may have to accept prior using the additional forms of payment.
Delinquent payments may bear interest at the rate of one-and-one-half percent per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less) from the payment due date until paid in full. You will be responsible for all reasonable expenses (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by Forsta in collecting such delinquent amounts, except where such delinquent amounts are due to Forsta’s billing inaccuracies.
- Required. If You want a Purchase Order number on its invoice, You will inform Forsta and issue a Purchase Order to Forsta. If You require a Purchase Order, and fail to provide the Purchase Order to Forsta, then Forsta will not be obligated to provide the Services until the Purchase Order has been received by Forsta. Unless otherwise agreed to in writing, Any terms and conditions on a Purchase Order do not apply to this Agreement and are null and void.
- Not Required. If You do not require a Purchase Order number to be included on the invoice, You will provide Forsta a waiver of the Purchase Order requirement, which may be an email to this effect. If You waive the Purchase Order requirement, then: (a) Forsta will invoice You without a Purchase Order; and (b) You agree to pay invoices without a Purchase Order.
You are responsible for any Taxes, and You will pay Forsta for the Services without any reduction for taxes. If Forsta is obligated to collect or remit Taxes imposed on You, the Taxes will be invoiced to You, unless You provide Forsta with a timely and valid tax exemption certificate (or other documentation as required for the exemption) authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. In some jurisdictions the sales tax is due on the total purchase price at the time of sale and must be invoiced and collected at the time of the sale.
- Current Account An account is current when payment is up to date or less than 30 days late. Current accounts function as normal
- Delinquent Account An account is delinquent when payment is 30 to 60 days late. Delinquent Accounts function as normal.
- Suspended Account An account is suspended when payment is 60 to 90 days late. When an account is suspended, Services are suspended but all data is retained.
- Terminated Account If an account is over 90 days late, it is subject to Termination. A terminated account will have all data and account information permanently deleted.
- A Delinquent or Suspended Account can be moved to the Current Account State by paying all delinquent payments.
