7 . Payment
a. Fees. If you choose to purchase one or more of the Services provided on the Platform, you agree to pay all fees (“Fees”) associated with the Services. Our monthly subscription provides tiered pricing for different levels of Services and products based on the Services you choose to use. In addition to our monthly subscription Services, you may purchase add-in Services for a one-time Fee or recurring subscription Fees. Fees may change from time to time. All Fees are exclusive of any applicable communications service or telecommunication provider (e.g., carrier) fees or surcharges (collectively, “Communications Surcharges”). You will pay all Communications Surcharges associated with your use of the Services. Communications Surcharges will be shown as a separate line item on an invoice. All Fees and Communications Surcharges are nonrefundable.
b. Any charges incurred by your purchase or use of the Services will be billed to the credit card we have on file. In the event you sign up for a Service that is ongoing and incurs recurring charges (such as a subscription), such charges will be billed in advance of Service. You agree to provide us with accurate and complete billing information, including valid credit card information, your name, address, and telephone number, and to provide us with any changes in such information within 10 days of the change.
If you are passing the obligation to pay Platform-related Fees to your Clients, you are solely responsible for all related transactions, including but not limited to refunds and charge backs of such Fees that are passed on. FYI Group is not responsible for resolving issues related to costs passed on to your Clients. Any fees passed on to Clients or other third parties must be amounts charged by FYI Group, without increase or markup.
c. Taxes. You are exclusively responsible for taxes and other governmental assessments (“Taxes”) associated with your use of the Platform, including all Taxes associated with the Services you order and any transactions you conduct with your Clients. FYI Group may collect Taxes from you as part of the Fees as it deems appropriate, and all FYI Group determinations regarding what Taxes to collect are final. FYI Group may recalculate and collect additional Taxes from you if it determines at any point that they are due. You will indemnify FYI Group for all Claims related to Taxes that are associated with your activities on the Platform, including any Taxes related to your transactions with your Clients, as described in Section 22. Taxes, like all Fees, are nonrefundable.
d. Overdue Amounts. If, for any reason, your credit card company declines or otherwise refuses to pay the amount owed for the Services you have purchased, you agree that we may suspend or terminate performance of Services or delivery of products and may require you to pay any overdue Fees and other amounts incurred (including any third-party chargeback fees or penalties) by other means acceptable to us. In the event legal action is necessary to collect on balances due, you agree to reimburse us for all expenses incurred to recover sums due, including attorney fees and other legal expenses.
e. Payment Disputes. You will notify us in writing within sixty (60) days of the date we bill you for any invoiced charges that you wish to dispute. You must pay all invoiced charges while the dispute is pending or you waive the right to pursue the dispute. Where you are disputing any fees, you must act reasonably and in good faith and cooperate diligently with us to resolve the dispute. All FYI Group determinations regarding your obligation to pay invoiced charges are final.
f. No Refunds. Except as described below, all Fees assessed by FYI Group are non-refundable, and FYI Group does not provide Fee refunds or credits for partially used or unused subscriptions. If you sign up for a Service subscription but do not access the Service or Platform, you are still responsible for all Fees during the term of your subscription. If FYI Group chooses at its sole discretion to issue a refund or credit in one instance, we are under no obligation to issue the same refund or credit in the future.
We reserve the right to issue refunds or credits at our sole discretion in the following situations:
1 . Where we materially modify these Terms of Service or Privacy Notice during a billing period and such modification adversely affects you, we may refund a portion of your subscription Fee equal to the remaining unused term, as we determine appropriate or as may be required by applicable law. To be eligible for a refund, you must provide written notice that (a) identifies your account and (b) requests cancellation of the specific Service. The cancellation will be effective upon our receipt of your notice and our determination that you are authorized to effect such cancellation. Please refer to the “Communications and Contact Information” section below on how to provide notice to us.
2 . Where a modification or interruption of Services adversely affects you and alternative remedies, as specified in these Terms of Service, are not available, we may refund a portion of your paid subscription Fee equal to the remaining unused term of your subscription, as we determine appropriate or as may be required by applicable law.
8 . Resale of Services (MAP Policy)
Some levels of the Services allow you to resell access to the version of the Platform that is customized for or by you. If you are authorized to resell access, you must comply with our minimum advertised price policy as described in this section and the provisions below.
a. Minimum Advertised Price. You cannot advertise access to the Platform for a price of less than $97 per month (the “MAP”).
b. Determining Advertised Price. The price at which you are advertising access to the Platform is determined after deduction of coupon discounts, rebates, value of product giveaways, gift card amounts, and other promotional offers, that have the effect of lowering an advertised price.
c. Media. This MAP policy applies to advertising in any media. However, this policy does not apply to advertising at a brick-and-mortar selling location that is not distributed or visible to customers outside that location, or final sale prices first disclosed to customers in “shopping carts” in web-based sales (so long as such prices cannot be retrieved by search engines or otherwise displayed to other customers).
d. Changes. The MAP is established by FYI Group and may be changed by FYI Group from time to time in its sole discretion. Any changes to the MAP will be communicated by a change to this section of these Terms of Service. FYI Group may also notify you of any change to the MAP.
e. Final Sale Price. This MAP policy applies only to the prices at which you advertise access to the Platform and does not restrict your ability to set the final price at which you resell access to the Platform. FYI Group will not sanction or otherwise penalize you solely for reselling access to the Platform below the MAP.
f. Exceptions. This MAP policy does not apply to advertising within any jurisdiction in which minimum advertised price policies are prohibited by law. It is a violation of this policy, however, to transmit an advertised price less than the MAP from any such jurisdiction to customers in any jurisdiction in which the policy is permissible.
g. European Union and United Kingdom. For sales into the European Union and United Kingdom, this MAP policy does not prohibit you from offering consumers discounts or communicating to consumers that their final price could differ from the MAP.
h. Resale Restrictions. When reselling the service, you agree that you are fully liable to your resale Clients for the Service and will handle all disputes and inquiries they have without any involvement from FYI Group, unless FYI Group offers to assist.
i. You Are Not FYI Group. Do not present yourself as FYI Group when reselling the Service, hold yourself out as a representative of FYI Group, or indicate that you are associated with FYI Group in any way. Do not direct your resale Clients to contact FYI Group for any reason, including for Service support.
j. Suspension and Termination. We may suspend or terminate your ability to resell Services as described in this section in our sole discretion and with or without advance notice to you if we determine that you are violating this Agreement or for any other reason.
9 . Excessive Data Usage
Your excessive data use may cause the Service to be slow or unavailable. We have no liability for the effect that your excessive data use may have on Service performance. We may (1) suspend or terminate your use of the Service or (2) reduce the amount of data you are able to use, with or without advance notice, if we determine in our sole discretion that your data use is excessive, abusive or has a negative effect on the Services in any way.
We provide the Service on a tiered-pricing basis, and some tiers can process more data with less impact on Service performance. Contact us if you would like more information about pricing for data usage that may be more appropriate for your needs.
10 . Training
FYI Group may offer training to you related to how to use the Services. All training and associated information conveyed as part of it (“Training”) is as-is, with no warranty, as explained further in Section 21 (Disclaimer). You know your own situation and your Clients, and you alone are responsible for how and whether you adopt any strategies learned through Training. FYI Group makes no guarantees that Training will produce any particular outcome, and Training may in rare cases be counterproductive depending on your situation.
11 . Data Stored on Our Servers
Subject to our Privacy Notice , you agree that we have no responsibility or liability for the deletion or failure to store any content maintained or transmitted on or through the Platform. You acknowledge that we reserve the right to remove or terminate accounts that have not paid a subscription Fee, that remain inactive for longer than one (1) year, or that have violated one or more terms of this Agreement.
12 . Account Registration

It is a condition of your use of the Platform that all Information you provide is complete, current, and accurate.
