By submitting Customer Data through the StoryShare Services, Customer hereby does and shall grant  StoryShare a worldwide, non-exclusive, perpetual, royalty-free, fully paid, sublicensable and transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, edit, modify, display and perform the Customer Data in connection with the Site, the StoryShare Services and StoryShare’s (and StoryShare’s successors’ and assigns’) internal business purposes.

Customer will ensure that it has a written agreement with each End User (each, an “End User Agreement”) that protects StoryShare’s rights to the same extent as the terms of this Agreement, including without limitation terms concerning restrictions on use, protection of proprietary rights, disclaimer of warranties and limitations of liability.  StoryShare agrees that, subject to the foregoing requirements, the End User Agreement need not specifically refer to StoryShare.

2.6 Changes to Service.

Customer acknowledges that the features and functions of the StoryShare Services, including the StoryShare APIs, may change over time. It is Customer’s responsibility to ensure that calls or requests Customer makes to the StoryShare Services are compatible with then-current StoryShare APIs.

The StoryShare Services may permit Customer to link to other websites, services or resources on the Internet, and other websites, services or resources may contain links to the StoryShare Services.

3. Fees

3.1 Fees.

Customer agrees to pay the usage fees and any other amounts set forth in the Rate Schedule or as otherwise agreed to by Customer through the StoryShare Services, including on subscription basis, as paid monthly or annually, as applicable. In the event the cost of Customer’s usage of the Services exceeds the monthly commitment, Customer shall pay StoryShare fees additional to the foregoing monthly commitment for the remainder of such month. Any overages incurred by Customer shall be payable on the 1st day of the following month. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any fees paid on an annual basis shall be accounted as if paid on a monthly basis. In addition, if applicable, Customer agrees to pay any applicable support fees in connection with Customer’s order of any support services. Any payment terms presented to Customer in the process of using or signing up for any StoryShare Services are deemed part of this Agreement.

3.2 Net of Taxes.

Unless otherwise stated in the Rate Schedule, all applicable federal, state or local taxes and all use, sales, commercial, gross receipts, privilege, surcharges or other similar taxes, license fees and surcharges, whether charged to or against StoryShare, will be payable by Customer. Customer will not withhold any taxes from any amounts due to StoryShare.

3.3 Invoicing.

 StoryShare will invoice Customer in accordance with the Rate Schedule or as otherwise agreed to by Customer through the StoryShare Services. If Customer is overdue on any payment and fails to cure such non-payment within 10 days of written notice of the non-payment, then StoryShare may assess, and Customer will pay, a late fee of the lesser of 1% per month or the maximum amount allowable by law.

3.4 Payment Processor. 

StoryShare uses a third-party payment processor (the “Payment Processor”) to bill Customer through a payment account linked to Customer’s account on the StoryShare Services (Customer’s “Billing Account”) for use of the StoryShare Services. The processing of payments will be subject to the terms, conditions and privacy policies of the Payment Processor in addition to this Agreement.  StoryShare is not responsible for error by the Payment Processor. By choosing to use  StoryShare Services, Customer agrees to pay  StoryShare, through the Payment Processor, all charges at the prices then in effect for any use of such StoryShare Services in accordance with the applicable payment terms (including but not limited to those set forth in the Rate Schedule), and Customer authorizes  StoryShare, through the Payment Processor, to charge Customer’s chosen payment provider (Customer’s “Payment Method”). Customer agrees to make payment using that selected Payment Method.  StoryShare reserves the right to correct any errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment.

3.5 Payment Method.

The terms of Customer’s payment will be based on Customer’s Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between Customer and the financial institution, credit card issuer or other provider of Customer’s chosen Payment Method. If StoryShare, through the Payment Processor, does not receive payment from Customer, Customer agrees to pay all amounts due on Customer’s Billing Account upon demand.

3.6 Recurring Billing.

The StoryShare Services are provided subject to recurring period charges and other fees and amounts as agreed to by Customer. By choosing a recurring payment plan, Customer acknowledges that such StoryShare Services have a recurring payment feature and accepts responsibility for all recurring charges prior to cancellation.  STORYSHARE MAY SUBMIT PERIODIC CHARGES (E.G., MONTHLY) WITHOUT FURTHER AUTHORIZATION FROM CUSTOMER, UNTIL CUSTOMER PROVIDES PRIOR NOTICE (RECEIPT OF WHICH IS CONFIRMED BY STORYSHARE) THAT CUSTOMER HAS TERMINATED THIS AUTHORIZATION OR WISHES TO CHANGE CUSTOMER’S PAYMENT METHOD. SUCH NOTICE WILL NOT AFFECT CHARGES SUBMITTED BEFORE STORYSHARE REASONABLY COULD ACT. TO TERMINATE CUSTOMER’S AUTHORIZATION OR CHANGE CUSTOMER’S PAYMENT METHOD, GO TO https:// StoryShare.co/signin.

3.7 Current Information Required. 

CUSTOMER MUST PROVIDE CURRENT, COMPLETE AND ACCURATE INFORMATION FOR CUSTOMER’S BILLING ACCOUNT. CUSTOMER MUST PROMPTLY UPDATE ALL INFORMATION TO KEEP CUSTOMER’S BILLING ACCOUNT CURRENT, COMPLETE AND ACCURATE (SUCH AS A CHANGE IN BILLING ADDRESS, CREDIT CARD NUMBER, OR CREDIT CARD EXPIRATION DATE), AND CUSTOMER MUST PROMPTLY NOTIFY  STORYSHARE OR  STORYSHARE’S PAYMENT PROCESSOR IF CUSTOMER’S PAYMENT METHOD IS CANCELED (E.G., FOR LOSS OR THEFT) OR IF CUSTOMER BECOMES AWARE OF A POTENTIAL BREACH OF SECURITY, SUCH AS THE UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE OR USE OF CUSTOMER’S USER NAME OR PASSWORD. CHANGES TO SUCH INFORMATION CAN BE MADE AT https:// StoryShare.co/signin. IF CUSTOMER FAILS TO PROVIDE ANY OF THE FOREGOING INFORMATION, CUSTOMER AGREES THAT STORYSHARE MAY CONTINUE CHARGING CUSTOMER FOR ANY USE OF APPLICABLE STORYSHARE SERVICES UNDER CUSTOMER’S BILLING ACCOUNT UNLESS CUSTOMER HAS TERMINATED CUSTOMER’S APPLICABLE STORYSHARE SERVICES AS SET FORTH ABOVE.

3.8 Change in Amount Authorized. 

If the amount to be charged to Customer’s Billing Account varies from the amount Customer pre-authorized (other than due to the imposition or change in the amount of state sales taxes), Customer has the right to receive, and  StoryShare shall provide, notice of the amount to be charged and the date of the charge before the scheduled date of the transaction. Any agreement Customer has with Customer’s payment provider will govern Customer’s use of Customer’s Payment Method. Customer agrees that StoryShare may accumulate charges incurred and submit them as one or more aggregate charges during or at the end of each billing cycle.

3.9 Auto-Renewal for Subscription Services.

Unless Customer opts out of auto-renewal, which can be done by submitting a request to StoryShare at https://www.storyshare.co/contact-us/any subscription-based StoryShare Services Customer has signed up for will be automatically extended for successive renewal periods of the same duration as the subscription term originally selected, at the then-current non-promotional rate. To change or resign subscription-based StoryShare Services at any time, go to https:// StoryShare.co/signin. If Customer terminates a subscription-based StoryShare Service, Customer may use Customer’s subscription until the end of Customer’s then-current term; Customer’s subscription will not be renewed after Customer’s then-current term expires. However, Customer won’t be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then-current subscription period.

3.10 Reaffirmation of Authorization.

Customer’s non-termination or continued use of a StoryShare Service subject to the usage fees set forth on the Rate Schedule or other fees or amounts as otherwise agreed to by Customer through the StoryShare Services reaffirms that StoryShare is authorized to charge Customer’s Payment Method for that Paid Service.  StoryShare may submit those charges for payment, and Customer will be responsible for such charges. This does not waive StoryShare’s right to seek payment directly from Customer. Customer’s charges may be payable in advance, in arrears, per usage, or as otherwise described when Customer initially selected to use such StoryShare Services.

3.11 Free Trials and Other Promotions.

Any free trial or other promotion that provides access to a StoryShare Services otherwise subject to usage fees set forth on the Rate Schedule or otherwise through the StoryShare Services must be used within the specified time of the trial. Customer must stop using such StoryShare Services before the end of the trial period in order to avoid being charged for such StoryShare Services. If Customer cancels prior to the end of the trial period and is inadvertently charged for such StoryShare Services, please contact StoryShare at https://www.storyshare.co/contact-us/.

3.12 Disputes.

Customer will notify StoryShare in writing in the event Customer disputes any portion of any fees paid or payable by Customer under this Agreement. Customer will provide such notice to StoryShare within 60 days of the applicable charge and the parties will work together to resolve the applicable dispute promptly. Upon expiration of the 60-day period described in this Section, Customer will not be entitled to dispute any fees paid or payable by Customer.

3.13 Suspension.

Customer acknowledges that, in the event Customer’s usage exceeds the amounts prepaid by Customer or any other failure to pay amounts due as described in this Section 3, StoryShare will be entitled suspend the StoryShare Services associated with Customer’s account without prior notice to Customer.  StoryShare will not have any liability whatsoever for any damage, liabilities, losses (including any loss of data or profits) or any other consequences that Customer may incur with respect to any suspension of StoryShare Services pursuant to this Section.
