6. Termination or suspension of the site or HORISEN services & modification of the tos.
By User: You may terminate your HORISEN account at any. After receipt of your termination notice, HORISEN will terminate your account. Any fees paid by you prior to your termination are non-refundable, including any fees paid in advance for the term during which you terminate. Termination of your account shall not relieve you of any obligation to pay any accrued fees or charges.
By HORISEN: HORISEN reserves the right, in its sole discretion, at any time to modify, discontinue or terminate the Site and HORISEN Services, or modify these TOS without advance notice. All modified terms and conditions will be effective after they are posted on the Site (unless a longer notice period is required by applicable law). If any modified terms and conditions are not acceptable to you, your sole remedy is to cease using the Site and HORISEN Services, and if applicable, cancel your HORISEN account. By continuing to access or use the Site and HORISEN Services after HORISEN makes any such revision, you agree to be bound by the revised TOS.
Without limiting other remedies, HORISEN may immediately terminate or suspend your access to the Site and HORISEN Services and remove any material (including Content) from the Site or our servers, in the event that you breach these TOS. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we also reserve the right to terminate the Site, HORISEN Services or your access thereto at any time and for any reason. After any termination by you or HORISEN: You understand and acknowledge that we will have no further obligation to provide the HORISEN Services. Upon termination, all licenses and other rights granted to you by these TOS will immediately cease. HORISEN is not liable to you or any third party for termination of the HORISEN Services or termination of your use of the HORISEN Services. UPON ANY TERMINATION OR SUSPENSION, ANY INFORMATION (INCLUDING USER SUBMISSIONS) THAT YOU HAVE SUBMITTED ON THE SITE OR THAT WHICH IS RELATED TO YOUR ACCOUNT MAY NO LONGER BE ACCESSED BY YOU. Furthermore, HORISEN will have no obligation to maintain any information stored in our database related to your account or to forward any information to you or any third party. Any suspension, termination or cancellation will not affect your obligations to HORISEN under these TOS (including but not limited to ownership, indemnification and limitation of liability), which by their sense and context are intended to survive such suspension, termination or cancellation.
Fees. If you purchase any services that we offer for a fee, either on a one-time or subscription basis (collectively, "Paid Services"), you agree to pay all fees and charges specified when you signed up for the Services and any part thereof. All fees are exclusive of applicable taxes (e.g., sales, use, or value-added tax), unless otherwise stated, and you are solely responsible for the payment of any such taxes that may be imposed on your use of the Services.
Credit Card Authorization. You may be asked to provide HORISEN with a credit card number from a card issuer that we accept in order to activate and/or pay for any fees related to Paid Services. You agree that any credit card and related billing and payment information that you provide may be shared by HORISEN with companies, such as payment processors and/or credit agencies, solely for the purposes of checking credit, effecting payment to HORISEN and servicing your account. HORISEN may seek pre-authorization of your credit card account prior to a purchase to verify the credit card is valid and/or has the necessary funds or credit available to cover your purchase. These pre-authorizations will reduce your available balance by the authorization amount until it is released or reconciled with the actual charge. Please contact your card issuer if you have additional questions regarding when an authorization amount will be removed from your statement.
Payment Method. HORISEN will charge the subscription fee and any other additional fees you authorize to the charge or credit card account provided by you. By authorizing HORISEN to charge a credit card for the fees associated with your subscription, you are authorizing HORISEN to automatically continue charging that card (or any replacement card if the original card is renewed, lost, stolen, or changed for any reason by the card issuer, and the issuer informs HORISEN of the new replacement card account) for all fees or charges associated with your subscription including any renewal fees as described below. You authorize the card issuer to pay any amounts described herein and authorize HORISEN, or any other company that acts as a billing agent for HORISEN, to continue to attempt to charge all sums described herein to your credit card account until such amounts are paid in full. You agree to provide HORISEN updated information on your credit card upon HORISEN's request and any time the information earlier provided is no longer valid. If payment is not received by HORISEN from your credit card issuer or its agents, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand by HORISEN. Free Trial Period. HORISEN does offer free trials upon it`s sole discretion without any rights whatsoever.
Cancellation of Paid Services You may cancel any Paid Services that are Facebook applications ("Paid Apps") at any time. If you cancel your account, all Content you have submitted to us may be deleted and shall not be recovered by HORISEN. If you delete any Paid Apps such services shall be cancelled and, after you pay for any accrued by unpaid services, you will not receive any future billings. For other Paid Services, you may cancel your account by contacting customer care at firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be provided with instructions. All fees and charges are nonrefundable and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods or for unused services. Automatic Renewal of Subscription. When you sign up online for the Paid Services, your monthly or annual subscription will be set to automatically renew upon its expiration, depending on the option you select. This means that unless you cancel your account or change its renewal settings prior to its expiration, your account will automatically renew for another month or year, as applicable. At the time of renewal, we will charge your credit card the then-current fees to renew the Paid Services. We may notify you by email to your email address that your account is about to renew and remind you that your credit card will be billed the indicated Paid Services fees on the renewal date.
Changes in Price. HORISEN may at any time, upon notice required by applicable law, change the price of the Paid Services or any part thereof, or institute new charges or fees. Price changes and institution of new charges implemented during your subscription term will apply to subsequent subscription terms and to all new subscribers after the effective date of the change. If you do not agree to any such price changes, then you must cancel your account and stop using the Paid Services. Your continued use of the Paid Services after the effective date of any such change shall constitute your acceptance of such change.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold HORISEN, its officers, directors, employees and agents, harmless from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including without limitation reasonable attorney's fees and costs, arising out of or in any way connected with (i) your access to or use of the Site, HORISEN Services, HORISEN Materials and Content; (ii) your violation of the TOS; or (iii) your violation of any third party right, including without limitation any intellectual property right, publicity, confidentiality, property or privacy right.
