4. Payment Obligations
Subscription Fees are specified on the Composity Sites and in the subscription-details section in your Account in the Workspace, except as otherwise provided in an Order Form. Payment obligations are non-cancelable and, except as expressly stated in the Order, fees paid are non-refundable. These means that in the event you decide to downgrade any subscriptions from a paid plan to a free plan, or from more expensive to cheaper plan, you will remain responsible for any unpaid fees under the paid plan, and Services under the paid plan will be deemed fully performed and delivered upon expiration of the initial paid plan subscription terms. In the event you upgrade your Subscription Plan, the Subscription Fees applicable to your new version of the Composity Platform will take effect immediately, with such increased fees calculated on a prorated basis, taking into account the number of days remaining in the then-current Subscription.
You shall pay Composity all of the fees for Services specified in an Order. Except as otherwise provided in the applicable Order Form, all fees are quoted in Euro, payment obligations are non-cancellable, and Services Fees are non-refundable and shall not be subject to setoff or other reduction.
Subscription Fees are stated exclusively of any taxes, levies, duties, or similar governmental assessments of any nature. You will be responsible for paying all Taxes associated with your purchases, other than Composity's income taxes. If we pay any such taxes on your behalf, you agree to reimburse us for such payment.
You may purchase Consulting Services by placing an Order with us. The Consulting Services we provide will be described in the Order Form. We will deliver the Consulting Services in English. Fees for these Consulting Services are in addition to your Subscription Fee. If you purchase Consulting Services that recur, they will be considered part of your subscription and will renew in accordance with your subscription.
Unless otherwise provided in an Order Form, paid Subscription will be billed in advance on monthly or annual basis (as per the option chosen when you purchased the Subscription Plan), starting on the Effective Date and will automatically renew at the end of its applicable term.
We do not store credit card information. We rely on trusted Third-Party online payment systems, such as Paypal and Stripe for credit card processing, as well as for recurring payment processing. You agree that such Third-Party Platforms may process your credit card or other valid payment method on each monthly, annual, or other renewal term (as provided in the Order Form), on the calendar day corresponding to the first day you subscribed to the Service, on behalf of Composity.
If your paid subscription to Composity's Services began on a day not contained in a subsequent month, we will process your payment on the last day of such month.
You may cancel a monthly or yearly Subscription Plan at any time by providing notice to Composity via your appointed account manager, send an email to our support team at firstname.lastname@example.org or with the function for this when you are logged in into your Workspace. If you subscribed to a monthly plan, the cancellation will be effective at the end of the then-current monthly billing period, and no credits or refunds will be issued to you for any prepaid fees. If you subscribed to a yearly plan, the cancellation will be effective at the end of the then-current annual billing period and no credits or refunds will be issued to you for prepaid fees.
We may change our fees at any time by posting a new pricing structure to our Sites and/or sending you a notification by email.
Suspension of Platform Access and Service
If your Subscription is thirty (30) days or more overdue (except with respect to charges, then under reasonable and good faith dispute), in addition to any other rights and remedies (including the termination rights set forth in this Agreement), we reserve the right to suspend your access to the System, without liability to Composity, until your Subscription is paid in full.
5. Modification and Termination
The term begins when you sign up for Composity. A free subscription continues until terminated, while a paid subscription has a term that may expire or your account is cancelled and you cease using our Services.
Either you or we may terminate this Agreement in case of (i)a material breach by the other party of the terms hereof in this Agreement and such breach remains uncured upon thirty (30) days after the non-breaching party provides notice of the breach, (ii)if the other party becomes the subject of a petition in bankruptcy or any other proceeding relating to insolvency, receivership, liquidation or assignment for the benefit of creditors.
