WeatherCheck offers the Service and Website free for personal use. WeatherCheck offers upgraded subscription packages for monthly installment fees for insurance agents, carriers, property managers, and other Users that find value in our Services. The business use of the Services and Website are restricted and you are required to obtain credentials and execute additional terms and conditions. If you are interested, please contact email@example.com. If you agree to a monthly subscription, then the remainder of this Section 8 Payment provision applies to you.
a. Monthly Subscription Fees. You will be charged in accordance with the billing terms in effect at the time of your initial purchase, unless you are notified of a fee change in accordance with “Fee Adjustments” below. For any Subscription you purchase that is charged in full upon purchase, you agree that for each renewal term for such Subscription, the amount due for the next term will be due and immediately payable in full as of the first day of that renewed term. For each Subscription, your charge remains for each term no matter if you access the Site during that term. In other words, EVEN IF YOU DO NOT USE THE SUBSCRIPTION BENEFITS, YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY PLAN MEMBERSHIP FEES UNTIL YOU CANCEL YOUR MEMBERSHIP OR IT IS OTHERWISE TERMINATED. For more information regarding canceling your Subscription, see the “Termination or Cancellation” section below.
b. Billing. To allow payment for the initial term of a Subscription, valid credit card information is due at the time of purchase. If you have purchased an automatic renewing plan from WeatherCheck, your Subscription will renew automatically at the end of the initial term (the “Billing Date”) and at the end of each term thereafter unless and until you give notice of your intention to terminate pursuant to the “Termination or Cancellation” section below. If you do not give us notice of such intention one (1) month in advance of your Billing Date, your credit card will be charged for the renewal term of your Subscription on your Billing Date. If your purchase date is on the 29th through 31st day of any month, your Billing Date for renewals in months with fewer days will fall on the last day of the month. WeatherCheck may adjust your Billing Date in subsequent renewal periods without notice. This will be reflected by a charge to your account on a pro-rated basis according to the number of days that have passed since the Billing Date of your latest renewal charge. Unless otherwise notified in advance by WeatherCheck pursuant to this Agreement, the renewal charge will be equal to the original purchase price for the Subscription
You agree to pay WeatherCheck the fees associated with your Subscription. Additional discounts may be available for members purchasing multiple months up front, as part of certain promotions which may include additional terms and conditions presented with the offer, or where limited by law.
c. Promotional Trial Membership. We sometimes offer certain customers various trial or other promotional memberships, which are subject to this Agreement except as otherwise stated in the promotional offers. AT THE COMPLETION OF A TRIAL MEMBERSHIP, UNLESS YOU CHOOSE TO CANCEL, YOUR SUBSCRIPTION MEMBERSHIP WILL RENEW AUTOMATICALLY AND YOUR CREDIT CARD WILL BE CHARGED TO BEGIN YOUR INITIAL TERM.
9. FEE ADJUSTMENTS
a. WeatherCheck may increase its fees for any Subscription membership effective the first day of a renewal term by giving you notice of the new fees at least thirty (30) days before the beginning of the renewal term. If you do not cancel your membership pursuant to the “Termination or Cancellation” Section, you shall be deemed to have accepted the new fee for that renewal term and any subsequent renewal terms (unless the fees are increased in the same manner for a subsequent renewal term). Reductions in fees become effective on the next renewal term without any pro rata for the period covered under the prior fee schedule.
10. TERMINATION OR CANCELLATION
a. By WeatherCheck
(i) If payment is not made on the Billing Date, as described in Section 8 above, you will have until the one (1) month anniversary of your Billing Date (in Texas and Massachusetts, this grace period will be thirty-one (31) days) to correct the credit card information on file and post a payment to your account. If after the expiration of this grace period you have not made any payment on your Subscription membership, your non-payment may result in suspension of service and subsequent termination of your Subscription membership.
(ii) Your right to use a Subscription membership is subject to any limits established by WeatherCheck or by your credit card issuer. If payment cannot be charged to your credit card or your charge is returned for any reason, including through a chargeback, WeatherCheck reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to suspend or terminate your access and account, thereby terminating this Agreement and all obligations of WeatherCheck hereunder. If a charge made to your credit card is declined, WeatherCheck may make up to five (5) attempts to bill that card over a thirty (30) day period.
(iii) If you wish to reactivate your account after such termination, there will be no setup or reactivation fees; provided, however, accounts terminated for non-payment will be reactivated only on receipt of the full amount past due and a written request to reinstate the account. When an expired account is reactivated, the new term begins on the date of reactivation.
b. By Subscriber. You will have the right to cancel your Subscription membership by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. You must provide notice of your wish to terminate your subscription one (1) month prior to your Billing Date. After such cancellation, your Subscription will remain active until the end of then-applicable period.
c. Services after Termination. After termination of your Subscription membership, either by you or by WeatherCheck, you will not be able to access the corresponding Subscription offerings; provided, however, that any access rights to a Subscription granted you through a separate channel (e.g., through another Subscription membership) will remain in full force and effect unless and until separately terminated or cancelled.
