Payment may be collected on a monthly basis, per usage basis, on an annual basis or any other specified period depending on the Service Plan and Payment selected by an Authorized User in the applicable User Agreement. By agreeing to a Services Plan and other terms of the User Agreement, you authorize BlueInk or its agent to process a payment on your registered credit card for the appropriate fee or through any other means agreed to by BlueInk and you. Each time you use or cause our Application to be used in accordance with the terms of an executed User Agreement, you affirm and reauthorize that we may charge your credit card the appropriate fee associated with your Account and Payment or Service Plan contained within the relevant User Agreement. Unless otherwise agreed to in writing, to establish and maintain an Account, BlueInk must have valid, complete and accurate credit card information on file for that Account. Further, unless otherwise agreed to in writing, if any credit card information changes, you must notify us immediately of such change so that change can be reflected on your invoicing and Account documents. If we or our Agents do not receive payment through the credit card on file or another form on payment in a timely manner, the fees are still due and you agree to pay them. Payment will be considered delinquent and this Agreement and any associated Accounts may be terminated if outstanding fees associated with the Account are not paid in full (30) thirty-days after coming due and/or (15) fifteen-days after receiving a notice of delinquency. In the event that any outstanding fees are not collected upon the termination of an Account or expiration of an Account’s term, those fees will be immediately due and payable. Any discrepancies related to billing should be brought to BlueInk’s attention by you within (30) thirty-days because after that period or you will have been deemed to have waived the right to dispute the problem or issue. With respect to your rights and liabilities associated with the credit card you keep on file with BlueInk, the agreement you have with the issuer of that credit card governs usage of that card and you are solely responsible for all fees charged to that card by the financial institution, cardholder or issuer. Unless otherwise agreed to in writing by both BlueInk and you, the default currently for any monies owed under this Agreement or any relevant User Agreement shall be in U.S. Dollars ($). The fee for any given Service Plan or pricing model offered by BlueInk and accepted by you is subject to change and, upon notice, BlueInk may move you to another Service Plan or pricing model with similar features and volume of usage that has a higher fee. If you do not discontinue your license/subscription and terminate your Account as required by this Agreement, when you are moved to a Service Plan with a higher fee, you specifically agree and authorize BlueInk to charge your credit card and/or Account in the amount necessary to pay for the fees associated with the update Service Plan and/or pricing model. In the event a specific Service Plan or pricing model is discontinued or revoked, BlueInk is under no obligation to make that Service Plan and/or pricing model available beyond the applicable term.
5.3. Representations – By creating an Account and becoming an Authorized User, you assert and promise not to misrepresent, hide or misconstrue your usage of the Application. Eligibility for various Service Plans and pricing models is based on the representations related to value and usage asserted by you. Any misrepresentation regarding volume of use, type of use or number of Authorized Users may result in immediate termination of your entire Account and all license/subscriptions and Service Plans associated with the Account. Typically the Service Plan and/or pricing model contained within any User Agreement or other fee for services, free trial of special offer will contain a volume limit. However, if no volume limited is stated and use is “unlimited”, the licenses/subscriptions associated with such use is to be used only by one Authorized Users at any given time. In any event, volume of use will always be based on the number of documents processed through the Application by any specific Authorized User and applied against the specified limit associated with that Authorized User’s license/subscription that is issued under the relevant Account. Therefore, the volume of any Authorized User as part of the relevant license/subscriptions will be monitored and tracked, even if use is “unlimited”. Should BlueInk determine that the volume of use by any Authorized User or Subscription is unreasonably high or unduly burdensome, BlueInk will alert said Authorized User and the appropriate Account Administrator of the situation. A full audit of any relevant Account and each license/subscription under that Account to determine whether their usage of the system is reasonable and/or appropriate may follow. What constitutes reasonable and appropriate usage is left to BlueInk’s full discretion and determination.

7. Term, Termination and Renewal
7.1. Term – This Agreement and your Account become active on the date you execute a User Agreement and/or active an Account and continue for the term outlined in your User Agreement and/or Service Plan, subject to early termination.
7.2. Termination – At any time during the Term of your Account and for any reason you may, terminate the Account upon thirty (30) days written notice to BlueInk. The notice must comply with the other notice requirements as outlined in this Agreement and must include a short statement that describes why you are choosing to terminate your Account. In the event you terminate your account, you will be billed through the end of the billing cycle in which the termination occurs and any unpaid fees or taxes will be due immediately upon the effective date of the termination. Should you terminate your Account within the first thirty (30) days of your Term, you may request a full refund, lest any set-up fees, from BlueInk. BlueInk may terminate or suspend your Account in our sole discretion if we feel continued usage represents a threat to the security of other users or the Application itself. We may also terminate your Account and hold you in default of this Agreement should you: 1) Violate any provisions of this Agreement, your User Agreement or any other applicable written document associated with your Account; 2) Fail to pay any amount owed to BlueInk or our affiliates that appear on your invoice or are still owed under a previous account or term. If we terminate your Account, we may do so without notice, may choose to withhold any refunds and may access a reactivation fee to reactivate your Account after the initial termination. In the event we terminate your Account, any outstanding fees and taxes will be immediately due. All sections of this Agreement, sections of your Service Plan and/or sections of your User Agreement, including definitions, payment and fees, confidentiality, intellectual property, limitation of liability, privacy, content monitoring, proper usage and all other general provisions, that by their nature survive any termination or expiration of an Account will be affected by the termination or expiration of your Account.
7.3. Renewal – Your account will automatically renew at the end of every term for another term that is either of the same length as the previous term, on a month-to-month term or any other term specified in any User Agreement, unless you terminate your account prior to the end of the active term or provide BlueInk notice that you do not wish for the term to renew. Upon auto renewal, you will receive the same Service Plan or the Service Plan that is the most similar to your initial Service Plan if the initial Service Plan has been cancelled, modified or replaced by a new Service Plan, as you were receiving under the previous term and be subject to the same Pricing associated with that Service Plan. In the event of an auto renewal, you authorize BlueInk, without notice to you, to collect any applicable fees and taxes associated with the Service Plan for your new term. In the event you renew your Account for another term but specifically switch to a different Service Plan, you will be subject to the fees and taxes associated with the Service Plan you select or that are outlined in any updated User Agreement you execute with BlueInk.
