To have the legal capacity to enter into agreements;
To have the power to enter into and accept the T&C in the name and on behalf of the Client;

The T&C applicable and enforceable to new Clients are the latest published on the Website.
The Client will be informed of changes to the T&C by any written means, including by email, at least one month before they come into effect.
Once into force, the modified T&C will apply as of the date of renewal of the Plan.
If the Client does not wish to be bound by the latest T&C, he may terminate his Plan at any time under the conditions set out below in section 5.4.
The Client can order the Services either by subscribing on the Website to a Plan or by signing the Services Order.
After subscribing to the Services, the Client will have a free trial period of thirty (30) calendar days following the creation of the Client's account.
At the end of the free trial period, the Client will automatically be charged for the Plan. If the Client does not want to pay for the Services, it shall end the subscription before the end of the free trial period.
The monthly Plan is renewed every calendar month for an unlimited period of time from the date of subscription to the Plan, unless terminated by either of the Parties pursuant to section 5.4.1. below.

Unless otherwise specified in the Services Order, prices are per Active User per calendar month.
For the annual Plans, if the number of Active Users is less than the number of Authorized Users at the end of a calendar month, the Client will receive proportional credits. The credits will be applied to future payments of the Client.
Example : the Client subscribed in April to an annual plan with 10 Authorized Users. Let's say the price per Active User is $3.4. The Client paid when he subscribed an amount of $408 (10 x $3.4 x 12). At the end of May, there are only 5 Active Users. The Client will receive credits for the 5 Authorized Users who are not Active Users, therefore a total credit of $17 ($3.4 x 5). The $17 will be deducted from the next Client's invoice.
Credits are not transferable or refundable. They have no currency or exchange value. If the annual Plan is terminated they will expire.
If the Client increases the number of Authorized Users during the annual Plan, the Client will be billed the following calendar month for such new Authorized Users as if they were Active Users for the remaining term of the Plan.
Example : the Client subscribed in April to an annual plan with 10 Authorized Users. Let's say the price per Active User is $3.4. The Client paid when he subscribed an amount of $408 (10 x $3.4 x 12). In May, it adds 5 Authorized Users. In June, the Client will have to pay $187 (5 x $3.4 x 11).
Prices displayed for the Services are excluding any applicable taxes or charges (including but not limited to value-added, sales, use, or withholding taxes assessable by any jurisdiction whatsoever, late payment legal interest fees).
If the Client resides in the United States or Canada it will be billed in US Dollars.
If the Client resides outside the United States or Canada it will be billed in Euros.
The Services must be paid by credit card via the platform of the provided payment provider or via wire transfer.
The Client warrants that it has the funds and the necessary authorizations to use the chosen payment method.
In the event of direct debit, the Client agrees to update its bank account information as soon as possible, if necessary.
All invoices are issued electronically and will be sent by email or accessible in the Client's account, which the Client expressly accepts. The Client needs to make sure its information is always up to date.
Full payment must be received within thirty (30) days from the invoice date, otherwise late payment legal interest fees will accrue.
For monthly Plans, the Client will receive a monthly invoice following every calendar month of subscription.
For annual Plans, the Client will receive an invoice shortly after its subscription and the automatic renewal. It will also receive further invoices if Authorized Users are added. This invoice will be sent the month following the calendar month during which the Authorized Users were added.

The Parties shall not be held liable if the non-performance or delay in the performance of any of their obligations, as described in these T&C, results from a case of force majeure including, for example, an act of God, natural disaster, act of war or terrorism, riot or civil arrest, pandemic.
The Party experiencing a case of force majeure must inform the other Party within a reasonable time of its inability to perform its service and justify this to the latter.
