Maintenance Connection Terms Of Use

Welcome to the Maintenance Connection site on the World Wide Web (the "Site"). Maintenance Connection is an Internet community site run by Maintenance Connection, Inc. The terms and conditions set forth below (the "Terms") govern the use of this Site and are legally binding on you as the user, including your employer, employees, consultants, agents and customers as permitted. If you do not agree with one or more of the Terms, do not access or otherwise use this Site or any information contained on this Site. Your use of this Site is your agreement to abide by each of the Terms set forth below. PLEASE READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY.

Welcome

As part of the Service, Maintenance Connection will provide Customer with use of the Service, including a browser interface and data encryption,  transmission, access and storage. Customer's registration for, or use of, the Service shall be deemed to be Customer's agreement to abide by this Agreement including any materials available on the Maintenance Connection website incorporated by reference herein, including but not limited to the Privacy and Security Statements. For reference, a Definitions section is included at the end of this Agreement.

1. Charges and Payment of Fees

Customer shall pay all fees or charges to its account in accordance with the fees, charges, and billing terms in effect at the time a fee or charge is due  and payable. The initial charges will be defined in the final license agreement. Payments should be made on a recurring basis consistent with the Initial Term. License fees are nonrefundable whether or not User licenses are actively used. Customer must provide Maintenance Connection with valid credit card or approved purchase order information as a condition to signing up for the Service. Added licenses will be subject to the following: (i) added licenses will be coterminous with the preexisting License Term (either Initial Term or renewal term) (ii) the license fee for the added licenses will be the then current, generally applicable license fee; and (iii) licenses added in the middle of a billing month will be charged in full for that billing month. Maintenance Connection reserves the right to change the fees, applicable charges and usage policies and to introduce new charges at any time, upon at least 30 days prior notice to Customer, which notice may be provided by e-mail.

2. Excess Data Storage Fees

The maximum disk storage space provided to Customer at no additional charge is a cumulative of 5 MB per User license. If the amount of disk storage required exceeds this limit, Customer will be charged the then-current storage fees. Maintenance Connection will use reasonable efforts to notify Customer when the average storage used per license reaches approximately 90% of the maximum; however, any failure by Maintenance Connection to so notify Customer shall not affect Customer's responsibility for such additional storage charges. Maintenance Connection reserves the right to establish or modify its general practices and limits concerning storage of Customer Data.

3. Billing and Renewal

Maintenance Connection charges and collects in advance for use of the Service. Maintenance Connection will automatically renew and bill Customer's credit card or issue an invoice to Customer (a) every quarter for quarterly licenses, (b) bi-annually for bi-annual licenses, or (c) each year on the subsequent anniversary for annual licenses. The renewal charge will be equal to the then-current number of total User licenses times the then-current license fee in effect at the time of renewal. Fees for other services will be charged on an as-quoted basis. Maintenance Connection's fees are exclusive of all taxes,levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and Customer shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties, excluding only
United States (federal or state) taxes based solely on Maintenance Connection's income.

Customer agrees to provide Maintenance Connection with complete and accurate billing and contact information. This information includes Customer's legal company name, street address, e-mail address, and name and telephone number of an authorized billing contact and License Administrator. Customer agrees to update this information within 30 days of any change to it. If the contact information Customer has provided is false or fraudulent, Maintenance Connection reserves the right to terminate Customer's access to the Service in addition to any other legal remedies.

For credit card payers, invoices will be generated at the start of a license or billing period and Customer's credit card will be charged simultaneously. If paying by other means, invoices will be generated at the start of a license or billing period and approximately one month in advance of the start of any renewal or subsequent billing period and shall be due within 30 days. Customer's account will be considered delinquent (in arrears) if payment in full is not received by the license or billing period start date.

Unless Maintenance Connection in its discretion determines otherwise: (i) entities with headquarters and a majority of users resident in the United States will be billed in U.S. dollars and subject to U.S. payment terms and pricing schemes ("U.S. Customers"); (ii) entities with headquarters and a majority of users resident in Japan will be billed in Japanese yen and subject to Japanese payment terms and pricing schemes ("Japanese Customers"); and (iii) all other entities will be billed in U.S. dollars, Euros or local currency and be subject to either U.S. or non-U.S. payment terms and pricing schemes at the discretion of Maintenance Connection ("Non-U.S./Japan Customers").

If Customer believes that the bill is incorrect, Customer must contact us in writing within 60 days of the invoice date of the invoice containing the amount in question to be eligible to receive an adjustment or credit.

4. Non-Payment and Suspension

In addition to any other rights granted to Maintenance Connection herein, Maintenance Connection reserves the right to suspend or terminate this Agreement and Customer's access to the Service if Customer's account becomes thirty (30) days or more delinquent (falls into arrears). Delinquent invoices (accounts in arrears) are subject to interest of 1.5% per month on any outstanding balance, or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is less, plus all expenses of collection. Customer will continue to be charged for User licenses during any period of suspension. If Customer or Maintenance Connection initiates termination of this Agreement, Customer will be obligated to pay the balance due on Customer's account computed in accordance with the Charges and Payment of Fees section above. Customer agrees that Maintenance Connection may charge such unpaid fees to Customer's credit card or otherwise bill Customer for such unpaid fees.

Maintenance Connection reserves the right to impose a reconnection fee in the event Customer is suspended and thereafter requests access to the Service. Customer agrees and acknowledges that Maintenance Connection has no obligation to retain Customer Data and that such Customer Data may be irretrievably deleted if Customer's account is 30 days or more delinquent.
