Your access to and use of the Service is conditioned upon your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, users and others who wish to access or use the Service. By accessing or using the Service you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you disagree with any part of the terms, then you do not have permission to access the Service.
If you have a separate signed contract with Broadcast Matrix LLC for specific services, that contract will be controlling over and supersede any inconsistent language in this Terms of Service.
Some parts of the Service are billed on a subscription basis (“Subscription(s)”). You will be billed in advance on a recurring and periodic basis (“Billing Cycle”). Billing cycles are set either on a monthly, semi-annual or annual basis, depending on the type of subscription plan you select when purchasing a Subscription.
At the end of each Billing Cycle, your Subscription will automatically renew under the exact same conditions unless you cancel it or Broadcast Matrix LLC cancels it. You may cancel your Subscription renewal by contacting Broadcast Matrix LLC via e-mail or postal mail with thirty (30) days written notice.
A valid payment method, including credit card or PayPal, is required to process the payment for your Subscription in US Funds. You shall provide Broadcast Matrix LLC with accurate and complete billing information including full name, address, state, zip code, telephone number, and a valid payment method information. By submitting such payment information, you automatically authorize Broadcast Matrix LLC to charge all Subscription fees incurred through your account to any such payment instruments.
Should automatic billing fail to occur for any reason, Broadcast Matrix LLC will issue an electronic invoice indicating that you must proceed manually, within a certain deadline date, with the full payment corresponding to the billing period as indicated on the invoice.
You are responsible for payment in advance of service provided. Service for new accounts will be set up once initial payment has been received by us.
Invoices are due and payable upon receipt. Failure to pay any amount due within thirty (30) days of the due date shall be sufficient grounds for termination of service without notice.
We will suspend any accounts after twenty-four (24) hours if automatic payments fail without notification. Any returned checks are subject to a $20.00 fee for each time they are returned by your bank. Service may be terminated if bad checks are not paid within five (5) days. You consent to receive communications from Broadcast Matrix LLC by electronic mail. It is your responsibility to ensure that we have a valid email address for you on file. Our inability to contact you via email due to a missing, inaccurate, incomplete, or inaccessible email address will waive our obligation to attempt to contact you.
Broadcast Matrix LLC, in its sole discretion and at any time, may modify the Subscription fees for the Subscriptions. Any Subscription fee change will become effective at the end of the then-current Billing Cycles.
Broadcast Matrix LLC will provide you with a reasonable prior notice of any change in Subscription fees to give you an opportunity to terminate your Subscription before such change becomes effective. Your continued use of the Service after the Subscription fee change comes into effect constitutes your agreement to pay the modified Subscription fee amount.
Certain refund requests for Subscriptions may be considered by Broadcast Matrix LLC on a case-by-case basis and granted in sole discretion of Broadcast Matrix LLC. Refunds that may be due will be in the same form as the payment. If a credit or debit card payment, the refund will be given against the same card number. If a check, a check will be sent. If a PayPal payment, the refund will go to the same PayPal email.
