KONNEK provides Free Guest Accounts and Paid Accounts. The terms of each Subscription Plan are as mentioned below and as may be further set forth on the Site, subject to change in our sole and exclusive discretion:
Free Guest Accounts (Viewer Accounts) may be offered to your customers or partners when you register for a Paid Account with KONNEK. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement and to the contrary Free Guest Accounts carry the following restrictions:
Paid Subscription Plans, or Paid Accounts, are offered to you upon the payment of prescribed subscription fees as are set forth on the Site or Proposal provided by KONNEK to you and at the time of sale for the same. For the duration of your Paid Subscription Plan, you shall be entitled to KONNEK’s Services during the subscription term, which shall include:
5.1.1. Subscription Fees
You agree that you will pay for Subscription Plan chosen by you for use of the KONNEK Services. KONNEK may charge your payment method for any additional amounts (including any taxes and late fees, as applicable) that may be accrued by or in connection with your Account. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE TIMELY PAYMENT OF ALL FEES AND FOR PROVIDING KONNEK WITH A VALID PAYMENT METHOD FOR PAYMENT OF ALL FEES.
All fees are payable in advance. All fees are non-refundable in US Dollars and shall be billed to your address or where applicable your business, company or organization address as provided by you upon Account registration.
Your total price will include the price of the Subscription Plan plus any applicable taxes; such taxes are based on the bill-to address and the tax rate in effect at the time of purchasing the Subscription Plan.
Your Subscription Plan will renew automatically, unless KONNEK terminates it or you terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 5. You must cancel your Subscription Plan before it renews in order to avoid billing of subscription fees for the renewal term.
If you fail to timely pay the applicable fees, KONNEK may suspend or terminate your access to the KONNEK Services. You agree to pay all costs of collection, including attorneys’ fees and costs, on any outstanding balance. In the event you fail to pay any amount when due, KONNEK may suspend or terminate your access to the KONNEK Services and delete your content.
Any amounts not paid when due are subject to an interest charge at a rate of 5% or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is less.
You are responsible for, and will indemnify and hold KONNEK harmless from, payment of all taxes (other than taxes based on KONNEK’s net income), fees, duties, and other governmental charges, and any related penalties and interest, arising from the payment of fees to KONNEK under this Agreement or the delivery or license of the KONNEK Services or use of the KONNEK Services or provision of any related services. You will make all payments to KONNEK free and clear of, and without reduction for, any withholding taxes; any such taxes imposed on payments of fees to KONNEK will be your sole responsibility, and you agree to provide KONNEK with official receipts issued by the appropriate taxing authority, or such other evidence as KONNEK may reasonably request, to establish that such taxes have been paid.
This Agreement begins and binds upon you on the day you successfully register with KONNEK and continue till the end of the subscription term, depending upon the Subscription Plan you choose.
You must cancel your subscription before it renews in order to avoid billing of subscription fees for the renewal term.
KONNEK may terminate this Agreement at any time if you breach any of the terms and conditions set out in this Agreement without giving prior notice or at any other time in its sole and exclusive discretion as set forth in this Agreement.
