Charges and Billing Practices
Individual account profile and credit packs purchase fees are nonrefundable, except as set forth below.
PIPELINEIQ reserves the right to change the fees it charges for products, services or features (collectively, "Products") offered in connection with the Service at any time. These sorts of changes include, but are not limited to, adding fees for new/optional Products and/or modifying fees for existing Products. By using any of the Products, with which there are associated fees, you agree to pay those fees. If you do not want to pay these associated fees, you must cancel your account, as set forth below.
Purchase fees and all others fees and charges associated with your account (including, but not limited to, any applicable federal, state, and local taxes) will be billed automatically to the credit card you provide when registering for the Service ("your credit card"). If your credit card is a VISA or MasterCard and the number or expiration date for your credit card changes for any reason (for instance, you get a new number because your old card expired, was stolen, etc.), that updated information may be automatically passed on from your credit card issuer to PIPELINEIQ, and if we do receive such information, it will be treated by PIPELINEIQ as if it were originally furnished by you. To learn more about this service being provided by your credit card issuer, please contact them directly.
You must promptly notify PIPELINEIQ (as set forth below) if any information related to your credit card changes is no longer valid or of any other change to the information you provided PIPELINEIQ regarding your credit card (including, but not limited to, changes to your billing address or other pertinent contact information). Absent such notification, PIPELINEIQ will assume that all of the information related to your credit card remains valid and will submit to the card processor all information that it requires for approval, both when you initially subscribe and, if applicable, upon the commencement of any renewal of that account. If any account fees or other charges billed to your credit card are declined for any reason, PIPELINEIQ shall have the right to suspend your account until such account fees or other charges are paid in full. You agree to pay all costs (including attorneys' fees) incurred by PIPELINEIQ in collecting any unpaid account fees or other charges from you.
You may cancel your account by emailing the address under "Customer Service and Product Support" to notify PIPELINEIQ.
PIPELINEIQ may immediately cancel your account, without notice or liability, if it determines in its sole discretion that: (i) you have breached any portion of this User Agreement; or (ii) your use of or access to the Premium Service or the Service violates any applicable law or regulation or otherwise inhibits any other subscriber from using or accessing the company profiles or any other service offered by PIPELINEIQ on the Service. None of the foregoing limits any other legal, equitable, or contractual rights available to PIPELINEIQ.
PIPELINEIQ may, in its sole discretion, choose not to renew your account by sending a notice of non-renewal at any time during your account term to the e-mail address you provided when completing your registration. You will be deemed to have received this notice, whether or not you saw it or the e-mail address provided by you continues to be valid. In the event of such a notice, your account will cease and will not automatically renew at the end of your then-current account term.
