14. DropTask for Business Accounts and Add-on Packages
Certain functions and features are only accessible to users who have registered as Business users and who pay for DropTask for Business Accounts or purchase Add-on packages. You will find all of the benefits and functions of DropTask for Business at www.droptask.com/business
14.1 Payments, Invoicing and Termination
Payment for using the DropTask for Business Accounts and the Add-on packages is made in accordance with the invoicing conditions to OpenGenius selected by you and is based on the price-list applying when the agreement is signed.
14.2 Ongoing Membership.
Your DropTask for Business subscription will be extended automatically until you cancel your membership or we terminate it. You must have internet access and provide us with a current, valid, accepted method of payment (as such may be updated from time to time, “Payment Method”) to use the DropTask for Business service. You must cancel your DropTask for Business membership before it renews each month or each year to avoid billing of the next month’s or next year’s membership fees to your Payment Method.
14.3 Recurring Billing
By starting your DropTask for Business membership you authorize us to charge you a monthly or annual membership fee at the then current rate, and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the DropTask for Business service to your Payment Method. You acknowledge that the amount billed each month may vary from month to month for reasons that may include differing amounts due to promotional offers, and you authorize us to charge your Payment Method for such varying amounts, which may be billed monthly in one or more charges. Charges are due at the beginning of each invoicing period, and all charges and prices quoted include the applicable value added tax.
If you reside in an EU country, a value added tax (VAT) number may be applied to your DropTask for Business subscription or Add-on package purchase, which will exempt you from incurring a VAT charge. The VAT number will be validated before any recurring payments are taken. If a VAT number becomes invalid, an email will be sent to the administrator of the DropTask account up to 48 hours before the payment is taken. If you fail to provide a new and valid VAT number, you will incur a VAT charge on your next payment.
14.5 Price Changes
We reserve the right to adjust pricing for our service or any components thereof in any manner and at any time as we may determine in our sole and absolute discretion. Except as otherwise expressly provided for in these Terms of Service, any price changes to your service will take effect following email notice to you.
14.6 Billing Cycle
Charges are due at the beginning of the each invoicing period. If you have a subscription this will be extended automatically until you terminate it and every further payment will be due at the beginning of the new payment cycle. We reserve the right to change the timing of our billing, in particular if your Payment Method has not successfully settled. In the event that your paying membership began on a day not contained in a given month, we may bill your Payment Method on a day in the applicable month or such other day as we deem appropriate. For example, if you started DropTask for Business membership or became a paying member on January 31st, your next payment date is likely to be February 28th, and your Payment Method would be billed on that date. Your renewal date may change due to changes in your Membership. We may authorize your Payment Method in anticipation of membership or service-related charges. As used in these Terms of Service, “billing” shall indicate a charge, debit or other payment clearance, as applicable, against your Payment Method. Unless otherwise stated differently, month, monthly, year or annually refers to your billing cycle.
14.7 Default of Your Payments
If you are delayed with your payment obligations (including immediately after the first default), we will be entitled to block access to your Business Account. If you are delayed with your payment obligation to a considerable extent, we will be entitled to terminate the agreement without notice. A considerable amount is defined as the amount of one payment. We reserve the right to assert further claims for default of payment.
Both parties may terminate the agreement at any time. If you change to another Business account category, this will not constitute termination. We will simply adapt the conditions of payment and your rights to your new Business Account category. Agreements with a minimum term will run until the end of the agreed period and will be extended automatically by the same period if you do not terminate your Account beforehand by deleting it or by downgrading it to free use. If you terminate or downgrade a Business Account, the original agreements will run to the end of the agreed term and will then no longer be extended. Reimbursement of the already-paid fees for the current term is not possible. We do not provide refunds or credits for any partial-month or annual membership periods or unused features. The agreement may be terminated for just cause. Just cause which would entitle OpenGenius to terminate the agreement will be if you breach your contractual obligations, in particular the rules of use described in these terms of service of DropTask and DropTask for Business, or if you are delayed with your payment obligations.
15 Refund Policy
OpenGenius Ltd offers a free version of DropTask to all users. This offers a “try-before-you-buy” version to ensure that it is compatible with your computer systems and that it satisfies all of your requirements before purchasing a paid-for version. If you experience any problems with DropTask, please submit a request through our ‘Support / Feedback’ feature. All sales are final and refunds are provided only for accidental duplicate orders. Refunds will only be made to the debit card or credit card through which the original purchase was made. Purchasing a paid-for version of DropTask signifies your acceptance of this Refund Policy. By agreeing to these terms you acknowledge that once your Add-on package or DropTask for Business order/subscription process is complete – thereby agreeing to the immediate commencement of the services – your 14 day cancellation period and refund right will be lost.
