V.  Fees​

A.  Fees; Refunds ​

Your subscription to our Services is conditioned upon your timely payment of all Fees specified in your Service Order and this Agreement. The term “Fees” includes both one-time charges associated with the setup and other costs incurred in the course of creating your initial subscription or modifying your existing subscription (“One-Time Fees”) and recurring fees associated with the Services to which you have subscribed, as set forth in your Service Order (“Recurring Fees”). Both One-Time Fees and Recurring Fees will be clearly designated in your Service Order. Unless otherwise agreed by the Parties in writing, all Fees will be billed to you based on the Services that you order, and all Fees paid are non-refundable.

B. Changes to the Fees; Taxes

We reserve the right to change our Recurring Fees at any time at our sole discretion; provided that we will provide advance notice of any changes at least 30 days prior to your next payment date and you may terminate your subscription effective at the end of your current payment period if you do not accept any changes to our Recurring Fees. All Fees set are exclusive of sales taxes and other government taxes (except where expressly stated), banking fees, and regulatory fees.

C. Autopay

You will be charged for the Fees according to the payment schedule designated in your Service Order. By subscribing to the Services, you authorize Brite, or a third party authorized to process payments for Brite, to charge your designated payment method for the applicable Fees on the first day of each applicable billing period during the Term. This authorization will remain in effect for the full Term. You must maintain a valid designated payment method with up-to-date and accurate information at all times during the Term.

D. ​Late Fees; Exchange Rates; Taxes​

In the event that the payment method that you provide for your payment of Fees fails at any time during your subscription, all Fees not paid within 30 days of the original charging date will accrue interest at a rate equal to 1.5% per month on the unpaid amount until such amount is paid. You will reimburse Brite for any costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred by Brite associated with collecting any overdue payments. Without limiting our other rights or remedies, Brite may accelerate your unpaid Fees obligations so that all such obligations become immediately due and payable, suspend your subscription until such amounts are paid in full, and take such other action as Brite deems to be necessary or advisable.

VI. Term and Termination.

A. Term.

Unless we expressly notify you to the contrary, the terms of this Agreement will become effective on the effective date of your Service Order (“Effective Date”). Your subscription will be valid for the term specified at the time you make your purchase, unless terminated earlier in accordance with Section VI.B below.

B. Renewal.

The term of your subscription will automatically renew for successive subscription terms equal in length to the term of your previous subscription unless you provide us with written notice of non-renewal at least 30 days prior to the end of your then-current subscription term.

C. Termination

This Agreement may be terminated upon occurrence of any of the following events:

1. Material Breach

If a Party fails to perform or comply in any material respect with any of its obligations under this Agreement, and such failure is not remedied within ten (10) days after receipt of written notice of such failure from the other Party, then the non-breaching Party may terminate this Agreement by notice to the breaching Party and such termination will take effect upon expiration of the 10-day period.

2. Convenience

Brite may terminate this Agreement upon providing you with a 30-day (thirty-day) written notice to you without penalty and for any reason.

3. Non-Renewal

This Agreement will automatically expire in the event of your failure to renew your subscription for the Services.

D. Effect of Termination​

​Immediately following the date on which this Agreement expires or is terminated (the “Termination Date”):

  1. All licenses and rights granted to you to access and use the Services will immediately and automatically terminate.
  2. All outstanding unpaid Fees will become immediately due and payable.
  3. In the event that this Agreement is terminated following your uncured material breach of this Agreement then, in addition to all other items set forth in this Section VI.D, you will pay to Brite an early termination fee equal to the aggregate amount of monthly Recurring Fees last charged to your account, as multiplied by the Remaining Term. For purposes of this subsection, “Remaining Term” will equal the number of days remaining in your subscription period as of the Termination Date, divided by the total number of days in the subscription period, as set forth in this Agreement. The Parties agree that such agreed-upon amount of the early termination fee does not constitute a penalty.
  4. The termination of this Agreement will not affect either Party’s rights with respect to actions occurring or obligations accruing prior to termination.

You will immediately notify Brite in writing if any unauthorized use of an Account, or any other breach of security related to the Services comes to your attention.
