Subject to the terms herein, PELCRO grants to Customer a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use the Application Services for Customer’s internal use and not for resale or further distribution. Customer’s right to use the Application Services is limited by all terms and conditions herein. Except for this license granted to Customer, PELCRO and its licensors retain all right, title and interest in and to the Application Services, including all related intellectual property rights. The Application Services are protected by applicable intellectual property laws, including U.S. copyright law and international treaties. “Application Services” shall mean the online, web-based and mobile-based applications ordered by Customer through an Order Form and provided by PELCRO via https://PELCRO.com or other designated websites or IP addresses or mobile applications, as communicated to Customer by PELCRO. An “Order Form” shall mean either (a) a document signed by both parties identifying the Application Services purchased by Customer and made available by PELCRO pursuant to this Agreement or (b) Customer’s selection and acceptance of a specific pricing tier for the Application Services, which are set forth at https://PELCRO.com/pricing/, via the online purchasing process at https://PELCRO.com.
Customer will not, and will not permit or authorize any third party to: (i) reproduce, modify, translate, enhance, decompile, disassemble, reverse engineer or create derivative works of any of the Application Services; (ii) rent, lease or sublicense access to any of the Application Services; or (iii) circumvent or disable any security or technological features of the Application Services.
Fees paid hereunder are non-refundable. Unless otherwise set forth in an Order Form, fees for the first month of the Application Services are prorated based on the calendar days remaining in the particular month at the pricing tier selected by Customer provided that in the event Customer’s usage of the Application Services exceeds the pricing tier selected by Customer, fees are adjusted as follows: for the previous month, PELCRO will charge the lower of any overage cost for usage in excess of the pricing tier Customer selected versus the retroactive upgrade cost to the next higher tier. The subsequent month is charged at the then-current pricing tier.
Except as otherwise set forth in an Order Form, the Application Services will automatically renew on a monthly basis unless and until Customer terminates the Application Services by providing written notice to PELCRO (email is acceptable) or selecting the cancellation option on the dashboard of the Application Services. Such termination will be effective as of the last day of the calendar month during which such termination notice is received.
Except as otherwise set forth in an Order Form, fees due hereunder will be billed to Customer’s credit card and Customer authorizes the card issuer to pay all such amounts and authorizes PELCRO (or its billing agent) to charge the credit card account until Customer or PELCRO cancels or terminates the Application Services as set forth herein; provided that if payment is not received from the credit card issuer, Customer agrees to pay all amounts due upon demand. Customer must provide current, complete and accurate billing and credit card information. Customer agrees to pay all costs of collection, including attorney's fees and costs, on any outstanding balance. In certain instances, the issuer of the credit card may charge a foreign transaction fee or related charges, which Customer shall be responsible to pay.
Customer will be responsible for payment of any applicable sales, use and other taxes and all applicable export and import fees, customs duties and similar charges (other than taxes based on PELCRO’s income), and any related penalties and interest for the grant of access rights hereunder, or the delivery of related services. Customer will make all required payments to PELCRO free and clear of, and without reduction for, any withholding taxes. Any such taxes imposed on payments to PELCRO will be Customer’s sole responsibility, and Customer will, upon PELCRO’s request, provide PELCRO with official receipts issued by appropriate taxing authorities, or such other evidence as PELCRO may reasonably request, to establish that such taxes have been paid.
