Accode offers tools, including open source technologies, for creating and orchestrating automatic data processing through its Website, software and cloud platform.

8. Fees and Subscription Terms
- Payment. We may charge for certain tools or features and functionality of the Services. You agree to pay all fees or 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, as set forth on Accode’s Pricing Page. You must provide Accode with a valid credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or any other issuer accepted by us) (“Payment Provider”), as a condition to signing up for Services for which we charge. Your Payment Provider agreement governs your use of the designated credit card, and you must refer to that agreement and not the Agreement to determine your rights and liabilities. By providing Accode with your credit card number and associated payment information, you agree that Accode is authorized to immediately invoice your Account for all fees and charges due and payable to Accode hereunder and that no additional notice or consent is required. You agree to immediately notify Accode of any change in your billing address or the credit card used for payment hereunder. Accode reserves the right at any time to change its prices and billing methods, either immediately upon posting through the Services.
- Service Subscription Fees. You will be responsible for payment of the applicable fee for any Services (each, a “Service Subscription Fee”) at the time you subscribe to paid services and select your pricing package (each, a “Service Commencement Date”). Except as set forth in the Agreement, all Service Subscription Fees are non-refundable. No contract will exist between you and Accode for the Services until Accode accepts your order by a confirmatory e-mail, SMS/MMS message, or other appropriate means of communication.
- Automatic Renewal. Your subscription will continue indefinitely until terminated in accordance with the Agreement. After your initial subscription period, and again after any subsequent subscription period, your subscription will automatically commence on the first day following the end of such period (each a “Renewal Commencement Date”) and continue for an additional equivalent period, at Accode’s then-current price for such subscription. You agree that your Account will be subject to this automatic renewal feature unless you cancel your subscription at least thirty (30) days prior to the Renewal Commencement Date (or in the event that you receive a notice from Accode that your subscription will be automatically renewed, you will have thirty days from the date of the Accode notice), by logging into and going to the “Change/Cancel Membership” page of your “Account Settings” page. If you do not wish your Account to renew automatically, or if you want to change or terminate your subscription, please contact Accode at email@example.com or log in and go to the “Change/Cancel Membership” page on your “Account Settings” page. If you cancel your subscription, you may use your subscription until the end of your then-current subscription term; your subscription will not be renewed after your then-current term expires. However, you will not be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then-current subscription period. By subscribing, you authorize Accode to charge your Payment Provider now, and again at the beginning of any subsequent subscription period. Upon renewal of your subscription, if Accode does not receive payment from your Payment Provider, (a) you agree to pay all amounts due on your Account upon demand and/or (b) you agree that Accode may either terminate or suspend your subscription and continue to attempt to charge your Payment Provider until payment is received (upon receipt of payment, your Account will be activated and for purposes of automatic renewal, your new subscription commitment period will begin as of the day payment was received).
- Refunds. Except as expressly permitted by Accode in writing or as explicitly stated as part of the sign-up process for a Service or in a specific arrangement, Accode will not provide refunds for the Services. If Accode terminates a Service, we will refund the associated prepaid and unused fees as appropriate, in our sole discretion.
- Taxes. The payments required under Section 8.3 of this Agreement do not include any Sales Tax that may be due in connection with the Services provided under this Agreement. If Accode determines it has a legal obligation to collect a Sales Tax from you in connection with this Agreement, Accode shall collect such Sales Tax in addition to the payments required under Section 8.3 of this Agreement. If any Services, or payments for any Services, under the Agreement are subject to any Sales Tax in any jurisdiction and you have not remitted the applicable Sales Tax to Accode, you will be responsible for the payment of such Sales Tax and any related penalties or interest to the relevant tax authority, and you will indemnify Accode for any liability or expense Accode may incur in connection with such Sales Taxes. Upon Accode’s request, you will provide it with official receipts issued by the appropriate taxing authority, or other such evidence that you have paid all applicable taxes. For purposes of this section, “Sales Tax” shall mean any sales or use tax and any other tax measured by sales proceeds that is the functional equivalent of a sales tax where the applicable taxing jurisdiction does not otherwise impose a sales or use tax.
- Withholding Taxes. You agree to make all payments of fees to Accode free and clear of, and without reduction for, any withholding taxes. Any such taxes imposed on payments of fees to Accode will be your sole responsibility, and you will provide Accode with official receipts issued by the appropriate taxing authority, or such other evidence as we may reasonably request, to establish that such taxes have been paid.
- Disputes. Unless otherwise provided by the applicable payment processor or payment platform used in connection with your payment for Services, you must notify us in writing within seven (7) days after receiving your credit card statement if you dispute any of our charges on that statement or such dispute will be deemed waived. Billing disputes should be notified to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
