For instance, if you have an annual subscription, your renewal period will be one (1) year. We will automatically charge you the applicable amount using the payment method you have on file with us. If you wish to stop automatic renewal or remove billing information from your Account, you may do so at any time by contacting us at email@example.com . However, you must make such a request at least one (1) business day prior to your next payment date in order to cancel the renewal and avoid being charged for a subsequent renewal period.
Returns and Chargebacks
We do not grant refunds at this time, and you will not be eligible for any prorated refunds for amounts already paid. If you believe that your credit card has been charged in error please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
You agree that once payment is made for your Subscription Fee, you and your agents will not seek to cancel, Chargeback (as defined below), or otherwise seek a refund on any basis that is fraudulent, misleading, or untrue. If you contact your bank or credit card company to decline, chargeback or otherwise reverse the charge of any payable fees to us (“ Chargeback”), we may automatically terminate your Account and/or restrict your access to the Services. If you have questions about a payment made to us, we encourage you to contact our customer service department at email@example.com before filing a Chargeback.

You understand and agree that ConferencePulse may, in its sole discretion and at any time, terminate your password, your Account, or access to any Subscriber Content, for any reason. ConferencePulse may also, in its sole discretion and at any time, discontinue any part of the Services or limit or restrict your access thereto, for any reason. In the event that ConferencePulse deems you to be in violation of this Agreement, you understand and agree that ConferencePulse may take any one or more of the foregoing actions without prior notice to you. If ConferencePulse has not deemed you to be in violation of this Agreement, ConferencePulse shall provide you with two (2) weeks prior written notice before taking such actions.

No Class Actions
WITH RESPECT TO ALL PERSONS AND ENTITIES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY HAVE OBTAINED OR USED THE SERVICES FOR PERSONAL, COMMERCIAL OR OTHER PURPOSES, ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, YOU AND CONFERENCEPULSE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OF ANY KIND.
TIME LIMITATION ON CLAIMS
You agree that any claim you may have arising out of or related to your relationship with ConferencePulse must be filed within one (1) year after you first know, or reasonably should have known of the act, omission or default giving rise to the claim; otherwise, your claim is permanently barred. If applicable law prohibits a one (1) year limitation, any claim must be asserted within the shortest time period permitted by applicable law.
Third Party Rights
This Agreement does not confer any third-party beneficiary rights.
You will not assign this Agreement or assign any rights or delegate any obligations hereunder, in whole or in part, whether voluntarily or by operation of law, without the prior written consent of ConferencePulse. Any purported assignment or delegation by you without the appropriate prior written consent of ConferencePulse will be null and void. ConferencePulse may assign this Agreement or any rights hereunder without your consent. Neither the course of conduct between the parties nor trade practice will act to modify this Agreement.
Waiver and Severability
No waiver by ConferencePulse of any term or condition set out in this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of ConferencePulse to assert a right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
We may modify this Agreement from time to time, and will always post the most current version on our site. If a modification meaningfully reduces your rights, we will notify you (by, for example, sending you an email or displaying a prominent notice within the Services). The notice will designate the date on which the modifications become effective. Modifications will never apply retroactively. By continuing to use or access the Services after any modifications come into effect, you agree to be bound by the modified Agreement, including any price changes. If you disagree with our changes, then you should stop using the Services and cancel all Paid Services.
