Specific Service Terms
Subscription Term -The “Initial Term” will continue for a period of one (1) year (or longer if specified in the applicable Order) from the date Customer first ordered the corresponding Service or the date Simplifi successfully processed payment for that Service, whichever is later (the “Subscription Date”), and thereafter will renew for successive 12-month periods (each, an “Extended Term”), unless either party gives the other party notice of non-renewal at least 90 days before the end of the Initial Term or then-current Extended Term. In the case of Simplifi, notice must be sent to: email@example.com. Upon timely non-renewal, Customer will not be charged for the next billing cycle but will not receive any refunds or credits for amounts that have already been charged. The Initial Term and all Extended Terms (if any) are collectively referred to as the “Subscription Term”.
License Grant -Subject to these Terms of Service, Simplifi: (i) will provide the Services to Customer during the Subscription Term via browser-based and/or downloadable software including updates, modifications, enhancements or new versions of the same if specified in the corresponding Order (collectively, “Software”); and (ii) grants to Customer a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, royalty-free right and license to use the Software and the Services solely during the Subscription Term, only for its internal business or personal purposes in accordance with the Order and these Terms of Service. Customer may select an in-house administrator (“Customer Administrator”) to grant and manage access to individual employees or end users, and where applicable, Simplifi (or its agent) may act as Customer Administrator if authorized by Customer.
Fees and Taxes -Fees are as described in each Order, including the applicable MRSC. In addition, Customer will reimburse Simplifi for reasonable travel and lodging expenses incurred in providing installation services (as indicated in the given Order). Customer agrees that Simplifi may bill Customer’s credit card (or other payment method) for renewals, expenses, and any other unpaid fees, as applicable. Customer may change its payment method information by entering updated information through the user interface of the Service at any time. Unless the Order provides otherwise, all fees and expenses are due within 30 days of the billing date specified in the applicable Order. Fees for Extended Terms are at Simplifi’s then-current rates at the time of renewal, regardless of any discounted pricing in a prior Order. Late payments are subject to a service charge of 1.5% per month or the maximum amount allowed by law, whichever is less. All fees and expenses are non-refundable except as set out in the Product Warranty – https://simplifi.io/warranty or SLA – https://simplifi.io/service-level-agreement, Customer is responsible for any sales, use, GST, value-added, withholding or similar taxes or levies that apply to its Orders, whether domestic or foreign (“Taxes”), other than Simplifi’s income tax. Fees and expenses are exclusive of taxes and regulatory fees, which Simplifi will include in monthly bills as required by law.
Monthly Recurring Service Charge -In consideration for the Software and Services provided by Simplifi, commencing on the Subscription Date and for the duration of the Subscription Term, Customer will pay Simplifi a monthly recurring service charge (the “MRSC”) based on the feature(s) and/or usage package(s) selected by Customer in connection with the given Order, including an overage fee for use (if any) in excess of the contracted allowance. Unless otherwise specified in the given Order, the MRSC will be calculated each month based on: (i) initially the rates presented to Customer as part of the online Quote process for the Initial Term; and (ii) Simplifi’s then-current rates, for MRSCs during each Extended Term. All usage reports utilize EST (e.g. usage incurred at 11:00pm PST on May 31 will be reported and billed as 2:00am EST on June 1). For clarity, each MRSC will include a flat fee for the upcoming month of Service (e.g. on June 1, Customer will pay the fee for the month of June) plus a variable amount based on overages and/or other incremental service charges (if any) incurred in the previous month (e.g. on June 1, Customer also will pay for usage/overage incurred from May 1-31), as well as taxes and other standard recurring charges. At any time during the Subscription Term, Customer can view their plan details (monthly fee, usage allowances, and all per-usage fees) by logging in at contact.simplifi.io and navigating to “Reports” and/or “Finance”.
Billing -The MRSC and other Service-related fees (if any) will be billed: (i) for the first month of the Initial Term, no earlier than ten (10) days after the signature date specified in the Order (the “Start Date”); and (ii) for each remaining month of the Subscription Term, on the anniversary date of the Start Date in such month. Fees for the first month of the Initial Ter, fees will be prorated and charged at checkout along with any activation fee (if applicable), phones (if applicable), and any other Products selected. All fees and charges are payable for the duration of the Subscription Term, regardless of whether Customer actually uses the Software or Services.
Payments -All payments for Services will be made free and clear and without deduction of any kind. If a billing charge fails or is rejected (e.g. due to an expired payment method), Simplifi will use commercially reasonable efforts to contact Customer with instructions to resolve the issue but reserves the right to suspend or terminate the Services at any time if fees are not paid when due.
Early Cancellation Restrictions -Unless otherwise specified in the given Order, in response to an attempt to terminate the Subscription Term early Simplifi may, in addition to its other rights and remedies (at law or equity), immediately: (i) bill Customer’s payment method an amount equal to: (A) the monthly discount extended to Customer multiplied by the number of months (or fraction thereof) the discount was received by Customer; plus (B) 50% of the remaining MRSC for the Subscription Term; plus (C) all then-outstanding MRSC and other unpaid fees, whether recurring or nonrecurring, including overages and any installation charges waived by Simplifi; and (D) any termination charges paid to Customer’s previous carrier by Simplifi; and (ii) immediately disable access to the Software and the Service; and (iii) retrieve all Products provided to Customer as a demo unit, as part of a promotional package or otherwise without charge.
