These are the additional terms for Community Leaders (“Additional Terms”) referred to in section 5 of our Terms of Service (“Terms”). By signing up to use Community as a Community Leader, you also agree to these Additional Terms. In the event of any conflict or inconsistency between the Terms and these Additional Terms, these Additional Terms will control to the extent of such conflict or inconsistency, solely with respect to your capacity as a Community Leader. Capitalized terms not defined inline or in the Terms are defined in section 9 below.
1. Your Community Subscription
We determine eligibility to become a Community Leader at our sole discretion. Unless we have agreed otherwise, a standard subscription is month-to-month and will automatically renew until you cancel.
2. Free Trials
Your Community subscription may start with a free trial. The duration of the free trial period will be specified during sign-up. We will charge the applicable fees for your next billing cycle to your Payment Method at the end of the free trial period and your subscription will automatically renew unless you cancel your subscription prior to the end of the free trial period. We determine free trial eligibility at our sole discretion. We reserve the right to revoke the free trial and put your account on hold in the event that we determine that you are not eligible.
3. Subscription Fees
You must provide us with a Payment Method, and the applicable fees you incur for your use of Community will be charged to your Payment Method on the applicable billing date. The length of your billing cycle will depend on the type of subscription that you choose when signing up for Community. Fees are fully earned upon payment. You must cancel your subscription before it renews in order to avoid billing of the applicable fees for the next billing cycle to your Payment Method. All fees are in U.S. dollars. Charges are exclusive of taxes.
Unless we have agreed otherwise, all fees are due monthly in advance, and are calculated by reference to the number of Community Members (also sometimes referred to as “Contacts”) that you have on the applicable billing date (and for clarity, that counts all individuals who (i) have signed up to message with you via Community after sending a message to your Community Number, and (ii) have not opted out).
4. Billing & Cancellation
You authorize us to charge any Payment Method associated with your account. You remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not cancel your account, we may suspend your access to Community until we have successfully charged a valid Payment Method.
We may update your Payment Method using information provided by the payment service providers. Following any update, you authorize us to continue to charge the applicable Payment Method.
You may cancel your Community subscription at any time, and you will continue to have access to Community through the end of your billing period. To cancel, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you cancel your subscription, your account will automatically close at the end of your current billing period.
We reserve the right to change our subscription plans or adjust pricing for Community in any manner and at any time as we may determine in our sole and absolute discretion. Any price changes or changes to your subscription plan will take effect following notice to you. If you do not accept any such additional fees, we may discontinue your access to Community.
Payments are nonrefundable and there are no Credits for partially used periods. Following any cancellation, however, you will continue to have access to Community through the end of your current billing period. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide Credits to some or all of our Community Leaders. The amount and form of such Credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion. The provision of Credits in one instance does not entitle you to Credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide Credits in the future, under any circumstance.
5. Service Rights & Restrictions
We grant you a non-exclusive, revocable, non-transferable, and non-sublicensable license to access and use Community (including our iOS and web applications), any related documentation, and any updates and enhancements made to the foregoing by or for us during the term of your subscription.
