5. Billing, Renewals and Payment of Fees

TeamSupport charges a License Fee for the use of the Services. You shall pay all License Fees, other fees and charges to your account in accordance with the fees, charges, and billing terms in effect at the time a fee or charge is due and payable. TeamSupport reserves the right to modify its fees and charges and to introduce new charges at any time, upon at least 30 days prior notice to you, which notice may be provided by e-mail.  Any fee increase shall be effective upon the License Term renewal and thereafter.  All pricing terms are confidential, and you agree not to disclose them to any third party.

TeamSupport charges and collects in advance for use of the Service. TeamSupport will issue an invoice to you, due upon receipt, for each License Term prior to the Contract Start Date and prior to each anniversary of the Contract Start Date or as otherwise mutually agreed upon.  For Agreements paid by credit card, TeamSupport will bill your credit card for the License Fee, along with any other fees or charges payable, at the start of the Initial Term and the start of each Renewal Term. The License Fee for a Renewal Term will be equal to the applicable platform fee plus the then-current number of total User Licenses times the then current, generally applicable license fee for the License Term, unless mutually agreed to otherwise. Fees for other services will be charged on an as-quoted basis.  All License Fees and other agreed upon fees are due and payable upon the beginning of the License Term even in the event of a failure by TeamSupport to issue an invoice timely.  

All payment obligations are noncancelable and all amounts paid are nonrefundable. If you believe your bill is incorrect, you must contact us in writing within 30 days of the invoice date of the invoice containing the amount in question to be eligible to receive an adjustment or credit.

You agree to provide TeamSupport with complete and accurate billing and contact information.  This information includes your legal company name, street address, e-mail address, and name and telephone number of an authorized billing contact and User Administrator. You agree to update this information within 30 days if the information changes at any time. If you are being charged monthly, you will provide valid credit card information as a condition to signing up for and continuing to use the Service, and you authorize TeamSupport to bill such credit card for the License Fee.  If the contact information you have provided is false or fraudulent, TeamSupport reserves the right to terminate your access to the Service in addition to any other legal remedies.

An authorized Administrator may add User Licenses by sending an email to TeamSupport at billing@TeamSupport.com or by the submission of a TeamSupport ticket.  Added User Licenses will be subject to the following: (i) added licenses will be coterminous with the preexisting License Term (either Initial Term or Renewal Term); (ii) the License Fee for the added licenses will be the then current, generally applicable license fee per month multiplied by the remaining months of the License Term; and (iii) licenses added in the middle of a billing month will be charged in full for that billing month.

YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING FOR ALL USER LICENSES ORDERED FOR THE ENTIRE LICENSE TERM, WHETHER OR NOT SUCH USER LICENSES ARE ACTIVELY USED.  YOU MAY NOT REDUCE THE NUMBER OF USER LICENSES OTHER THAN AS DESCRIBED IN SECTION 9 HEREIN.  TEAMSUPPORT MAY WITHHOLD DELIVERY OF ANY OF THE SERVICES UNTIL PAYMENT IS RECEIVED FOR LICENSE FEES AND ANY OTHER FEES DUE AND PAYABLE.

Unless otherwise stated, TeamSupport’s fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties, excluding only United States (federal or state) taxes based solely on TeamSupport’s income. Unless TeamSupport in its discretion determines otherwise, all billings will be in U.S. dollars.

6. Non-Payment and Suspension

In addition to any other rights granted to TeamSupport herein, TeamSupport reserves the right to suspend or terminate this Agreement and your access to the Service if your account becomes delinquent (falls into arrears).  Delinquent invoices (accounts in arrears) are subject to interest of 1.0% per month on any outstanding balance, or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is less, plus all expenses of collection. You will continue to be charged for User Licenses during any period of suspension. If you or TeamSupport initiates termination of this Agreement, you will be obligated to pay the balance due on your account computed in accordance with Section 6 above. You agree that TeamSupport may charge such unpaid fees to your credit card or otherwise bill you for such unpaid fees. 

TeamSupport reserves the right to impose a reconnection fee in the event you are suspended and thereafter request access to the Service.  You agree and acknowledge that TeamSupport has no obligation to retain Customer Data and that such Customer Data may be irretrievably deleted if your account is 30 days or more delinquent.  TeamSupport shall not incur any liability as a result of exercising its right to suspend or terminate the Service.

7. Agreement Term, Initial Term, and License Term

This Agreement commences on the Effective Date and is in effect until the later of (a) the end of your Trial Period; (b) the end of your Initial Term; or (c) the end of the last Renewal Term. The Initial Term will be as you elect in an Order Form. Upon the expiration of the Initial Term, this Agreement will automatically renew for successive Renewal Terms equal in duration to the Initial Term for the same number of User Licenses licensed in the prior term and otherwise on the same terms and conditions, unless otherwise agreed in an Order Form.  Sections 4, 5, 11 through 19, 23, 24, 25 and 27 shall survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement.  Upon termination or expiration of this Agreement, you agree to promptly return all Confidential Information in your possession or control, to TeamSupport, or to destroy and certify to such destruction, of any such Confidential Information.

8. Termination for Convenience and Reduction in User Licenses

Either party may terminate this Agreement or reduce the number of User Licenses in connection with the Services by notifying the other party in writing at least thirty (30) business days prior to the next Renewal Term. In addition, TeamSupport may terminate a Trial Period or free account at any time in its sole discretion.  You agree and acknowledge that TeamSupport has no obligation to retain the Customer Data after termination, and may delete such Customer Data 30 days after the termination of the License Term.

9. Termination for Cause

TeamSupport may terminate this Agreement for “Cause” upon any of the following reasons:

- Any breach of your payment obligations, including payment of the License Fee, unauthorized use of the TeamSupport Technology or Service, or other violations of this Agreement, which shall be deemed a material breach of this Agreement.

- Any of the following: (1) you are liquidated, wound up or dissolved; (2) you are subject to a general assignment for the benefit of or compromise or arrangement with your creditors; or (3) any proceedings are commenced regarding you under any bankruptcy, insolvency, or debtor’s relief law.

In any of these cases, TeamSupport, in its sole discretion, may immediately terminate your password, account or use of the Service.  TeamSupport’s right to terminate or suspend the Service does not limit any of its other rights or remedies, whether at law, in equity, or under this Agreement.

You agree and acknowledge that TeamSupport has no obligation to retain the Customer Data after termination, and may delete such Customer Data 30 days after the earlier of (a) the date of the notice of the breach or (b) the termination of the License Term in accordance with this section.

If Personal Data originates from an end-user in the EEA and the Personal Data will subsequently be transferred to a country or territory outside of the EEA, TeamSupport will ensure, pursuant to GDPR, that such transfer will only take place if: (a) the non-EEA country in question ensures an adequate level of data protection; (b) the obligations and restrictions on the transfer of such Personal Data set forth in the GDPR are satisfied; and (c) the transfer is via the EU-U.S. or Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks.  Upon your request and subject to any applicable personal information processing agreement, TeamSupport will further ensure that the transfer is subject to the standard contractual clauses designed to facilitate transfers of personally identifiable information from the EEA to all third countries that have been adopted by the European Commission (known as the, “Model Clauses”), which have been incorporated into the TeamSupport personal information processing agreements.

You agree that TeamSupport and the third-party service providers that are utilized by TeamSupport to assist in providing the Site and Service to you shall have the right to access, use, modify, reproduce, distribute, display and disclose Customer Data only to the extent necessary to provide or improve the Services. Any third-party service providers utilized by TeamSupport will only be given access to Customer Data as is reasonably necessary to provide the Services and will be subject to (a) confidentiality obligations which are commercially reasonable and substantially consistent with the standards described in the Privacy Policy; and (b) their agreement to comply with applicable Personal Data transfer restrictions.
