AIM GIGLINK CUSTOMER AGREEMENT
AIM GIGLINK and Customer hereby agree as follows:
1. Scope of Agreement.
2. VPMS and Fees.
2.2 You agree to pay the fees in effect for your subscription at the time you purchase or renew it (“Subscription Fees”). Current pricing is available at www.aimgiglink.com and is currently:
|Company VPMS License||Annually by Credit Card or Invoice||Based on Company Size|
|Project Fees*||Incurred on a project by project basis||Project Price|
*Project Fees are billed to Customer by AIM GIGLINK on behalf of Service Providers.
Unless agreed otherwise in writing, all Subscription Fees are payable prior to the commencement of each subscription period.
2.3 When you subscribe for a paid VPMS subscription, you will provide AIM GIGLINK with either a valid, up-to-date credit card number or other payment options as available. If you have selected a credit card or Paypal as your payment method, you authorize AIM GIGLINK to charge your credit card (or Paypal account, as applicable) for Service Fees on the first day of your initial subscription period and each renewal subscription period and to charge your credit card when such fees become due and payable. You are responsible for maintaining up-to-date payment information. If we cannot charge your credit card for any Service Fees when due because your payment information is no longer valid and up-to-date, or if we do not receive your payment when due through the alternative payment method you have selected, we may, at our election: (a) suspend your access to the Online Service, in which case you will be responsible for all Service Fees incurred during the period of suspension; (b) immediately terminate this Agreement, in which case your right to use the Online Service will cease; or (c) without waiving our rights to suspend or terminate your account, allow you a longer period during which to make payment, in which case you will remain responsible for all Service Fees incurred while we await your payment. Late payments incur interest charges at the rate of 1% per month on any outstanding balance or the maximum amount permitted by applicable law, whichever is less. The Subscription Fees do not include any local, state or federal taxes or duties. Except for our income taxes and gross receipts taxes, you acknowledge that you are responsible to pay such taxes (if any).
