This section does not apply to customer leads or to Content; however you agree that any ideas, suggestions, concepts, processes or techniques which you provide to Greatify related to the Services, the Site or Greatify or its business (”Feedback”) are and shall be Greatify’s exclusive property without any compensation or other consideration payable to you by Greatify, and you do so of your own free will and volition.

You hereby assign all rights on a worldwide basis in perpetuity to Greatify in any Feedback and, as applicable, waive any moral rights.

You agree that Greatify is providing you with one user identification reference that you shall use to create a username and password (together, the “User ID”) to the extent, and only to the extent, necessary to access and use the Site and Services in accordance with this Agreement. You agree and understand that you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your User ID. That User ID, together with any or other user information you provide, will form your “Profile Information” and allow you to access your account (“Account” ). You will provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself, and you agree not to misrepresent your Profile Information. You represent and warrant to Greatify that you have not misrepresented any Profile Information. You are responsible for any Profile Information that may be lost or unrecoverable through the use of the Site or Services.

You are responsible for having knowledge of your jurisdictional anti-spam laws. In some jurisdictions, consent is required before sending email or electronic transactions to email accounts.

If a corporate or other organization’s name appears on the card, that corporation or organization is deemed to be the owner. If any dispute arises as to who owns or controls a User ID, Profile Information, or Account, the card will continue to be charged and you will be responsible to pay for the Services until Greatify receives written confirmation from the Account email address confirming a change in ownership and control of the Account.

Doing so may have a material impact on our ability to provide you or Your Colleagues and Employees any Services, and we are not responsible if you do so.
Fees and Renewals
You shall pay all fees specified in any Subscription. Unless otherwise specified in a Subscription, such fees shall be billed in advance for each Period, which can be one month up to a multiple years (the “Period”) and are non-refundable. There will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service or for Periods in which your account remains open but you do not use the Services. If you exceed any usage or fee thresholds set forth in your Subscription, we may charge you for such overages on your next invoice.
We reserve the right to modify our billing rates at any time upon thirty (30) written notice by posting such fee changes to the Site or through email notification to you. You will be liable to pay such modified billing rates.
Term and Renewal
Subject to your payment of applicable fees, we will provide the Services to you for the Period that you have paid for such Services, on the basis under which you have selected your Subscription.
The Service is billed in advance for each Period, and is non-refundable. There will be no refunds or credits for partial Period of service, or refunds made should you not use the Service during a Period of time when your account is open.
Should you upgrade or downgrade your account plan, your credit card or other method of payment if applicable (the “Payment Method”) will be charged for your new billing rate immediately. At the time of upgrade/downgrade the current plan charges will be applicable on a prorated basis for the days of usage. Your Payment Method will then be charged for your new billing rate every Period thereafter unless you cancel your account.
At the end of Period, your Subscription will automatically renew for an additional Period until explicitly cancelled by you as described in the “Cancellation and Termination” section below.
If you purchase any fee-based Services, you agree that Greatify, or our third party service providers, may store your Payment Method information. You expressly agree that we are authorized to charge you (i) a fee for any applicable Services for which you have subscribed, billed on a basis of the Period, (ii) any other fees for Services you may purchase, (iii) any charges for use of the Services in excess of the usage or other limits placed on your use of the Services (and you hereby consent to such charges and agree we are not required to notify you of any such charge in advance) and (iv) any applicable taxes in connection with your use of the Services to the Payment Method you provide and to reimburse us for all collection costs and interest for any overdue amounts. If the Payment Method you provide expires and you do not provide new Payment Method information or cancel your account, you authorize us to continue billing you and you agree to remain responsible for any uncollected fees.
In that case, Greatify may also immediately suspend access to or use of the Services, until a valid Payment Method is provided. The suspension of use and access is not a breach of this Agreement.
From time to time and at our sole discretion, we may offer free or discounted pricing for you to evaluate the use of the current Services that are generally available to customers for a limited period of time (the “Trial Program”). If you register for a Trial Program, you must decide to purchase the Services within the term of the Trial Program specified by us (the “Trial Period”) in order to continue to use the Services or retain any Content that you have posted or uploaded during the Trial Period. If you do not purchase the Services by the end of the Trial Period, the Services will be unavailable to you, although your Content will be available to you for a period of 30 days from the end of the Trial Period. Once the Trial Period has expired, you agree that our normal billing rates shall apply. You agree to comply with any additional terms, restrictions or limitations (including limitations on the total amount of usage) we impose in connection with any Trial Program. You may not signup for multiple Accounts in order to receive additional benefits under any Trial Programs. We may terminate or suspend any Trial Program at any time without notice or liability and in our sole discretion. We reserve the right to charge or charge more for any Service or product offered through any Trial Program.
From time to time and at our sole discretion, we may offer the ability to try out a possible new Service that we may decide to offer in the future, generally, to all customers (a “Beta Test”). You will have to sign up for the Beta Test. We may suspend or terminate the Beta Test at any time without notice or liability to you. There is no guarantee the Beta Test will become part of the Service. If the Beta Test becomes part of the Service, Greatify may charge or charge more for the Service. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, Greatify makes no representation or warranties, and accepts no liability whatsoever for the Beta Test or your use of it.
