If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate or incomplete, or if we have reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate or incomplete, we have the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service (or any portion thereof). Suspension or termination of the Service will result in loss of access to information stored on the Service.

The Service is made available to you on a subscription basis with current subscription rates available at: http://systemsurveyor.com/pricing/.

Failure to pay these fees may result in the termination or suspension of your subscription without limiting our other rights and remedies. All fees are payable in advance, are non-refundable and are due and payable within fifteen (15) days after the date of the applicable invoice. The Service will be activated upon the successful processing of your payment or receipt of an acceptable purchase order, as determined in the Company’s discretion. You authorize us to store and continue billing your payment method (e.g., credit card) for each subsequent subscription period based upon the rates in effect at that time. We reserve the right to change applicable rates at any time, either with or without notice. Any new rate will be in effect on your account at the beginning of your next subscription period. We will typically notify you within thirty (30) days prior to the end of any annual subscription period and the subsequent renewal of your annual subscription. Taxes, if applicable, are calculated based on the information that you provide at the time of purchase. Failure by us to apply taxes or fees on a transaction does not relieve you of the obligation to pay such taxes. Your purchase may be subject to foreign exchange fees or differences in rates based on location and currency (e.g., exchange rates).

a. This arbitration requirement applies to any claim or dispute of any kind (whether in contract, tort, or otherwise, whether pre-existing, present, or future, and including statutory, common law, or equitable) between you and the Company, its agents, employees, successors, assigns, direct and indirect subsidiaries, and any third party providing any products or services to you in connection with your purchase that relates in any way to your use of the Service (“Claims”).
b. You still have the right to bring individual Claims in small claims court, to the extent that you qualify.
c. The parties will split the arbitration/arbitrator fees. The arbitration will be held in Austin, Texas.
d. Arbitration shall be administered by either:
(i). The American Arbitration Association (AAA), subject to its Consumer Arbitration Rules, available at (800) 778-7879 and www.adr.org; or
(ii). JAMS, subject to the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules, available at (800) 352-5267 and www.jamsadr.com.

These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us, superseding any prior agreements between you and us that concern the subject matter herein. Any failure by us to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Waiver by either party of any default by the other party shall not be deemed a continuing waiver of such default or a waiver of any other default. If any provision of the Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Terms remain in full force and effect. These Terms are for the benefit of us and our affiliates, and our respective managers, members, officers, directors, employees, and agents. Each of these entities or individuals shall have the right to assert and enforce those provisions directly against you on its own behalf.
