Anchore Terms of Service
Last updated: September 30, 2016
Please read these Terms of Service (these “Terms”) carefully before using any of the service offerings (each, a “Service”) provided on the Anchore website (the “Site”) operated by Anchore, Inc. (“Anchore”, “us”, “we”, or “our”).
Your access to and use of any of the Services is conditioned upon your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, users and others who wish to access or use the Services.
By accessing or using the Services you (“Customer”, “you”, or “your”) agree to be bound by these Terms. If you disagree with any part of these Terms, then you do not have permission to access or use any of the Services.
Some Services are billed on a subscription basis (“Subscription(s)”). You will be billed in advance on a recurring and periodic basis (“Billing Cycle”). Billing cycles are set on an annual basis. At the end of each Billing Cycle, your Subscription will automatically renew unless one party gives the other notice of its intent to terminate at least thirty (30) days prior to the end of the then-current term. A valid payment method, including credit card, is required to process the payment for your Subscription. You shall provide Anchore with accurate and complete billing information including full name, address, state, zip code, telephone number, and valid payment method information. By submitting such payment information, you automatically authorize Anchore to charge all Subscription fees incurred through your account to any such payment method(s).
Should automatic billing fail to occur for any reason, Anchore will issue an electronic invoice indicating that you must proceed manually. All invoices will be paid within fifteen (15) days from the date of the invoice. All payments are non-refundable and are made without the right of setoff or chargeback. You will pay interest, at a rate equal to one percent (1%) per month on any amount that remains unpaid fifteen (15) days after the date of the invoice. You will pay directly any taxes arising out of these Terms or Anchore’s performance under these Terms, including applicable local, state, federal and international sales taxes, value added taxes, withholding taxes, and any other taxes or duties of any kind, but excluding taxes on Anchore’s net income and all employer reporting and payment obligations with respect to Anchore’s personnel. If any applicable law requires you to withhold amounts from any payments to Anchore under these Terms, (a) you will effect such withholding, remit such amounts to the appropriate taxing authorities and promptly furnish Anchore with tax receipts evidencing the payments of such amounts and (b) the sum payable by you upon which the deduction or withholding is based will be increased to the extent necessary to ensure that, after such deduction or withholding, Anchore receives and retains, free from liability for such deduction or withholding, a net amount equal to the amount Anchore would have received and retained absent the required deduction or withholding.
2. Free Trial
Anchore may, at its sole discretion, offer a Subscription with a free trial for a limited period of time (“Free Trial”). You may be required to enter your billing information in order to sign up for the Free Trial. If you do enter your billing information when signing up for the Free Trial, you will not be charged by Anchore until the Free Trial has expired. On the last day of the Free Trial period, unless you terminated your Subscription by providing notice to us, you will be automatically charged the applicable Subscription fees for the type of Subscription you have selected. At any time and without notice, Anchore reserves the right to (a) modify the terms and conditions of the Free Trial offer, or (b) cancel such Free Trial offer.
3. Fee Changes
Anchore in its sole discretion and at any time, may modify the Subscription fees for the Subscriptions. Any Subscription fee change will become effective at the end of the then-current Billing Cycle. Anchore will provide you with a reasonable prior notice of any change in Subscription fees to give you an opportunity to terminate your Subscription before such change becomes effective. Your continued use of the Services after the Subscription fee change comes into effect constitutes your agreement to pay the modified Subscription fee amount.
When you create an account with us, you guarantee that you are above the age of 18, and that the Account Information you provide us is accurate, complete, and current at all times. Inaccurate, incomplete, or obsolete information may result in the immediate termination of your account on the Service. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password, including but not limited to the restriction of access to your computer and/or account. You agree to accept responsibility for any and all activities or actions that occur under your account and/or password, whether your password is with one of our Services or a third-party service. You must notify us immediately upon becoming aware of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account. You may not use as a username the name of another person or entity or that is not lawfully available for use, a name or trademark that is subject to any rights of another person or entity other than you, without appropriate authorization.
