Payment, Refunds, Upgrading and Downgrading
A valid credit card is required for paying accounts, unless your company pays for services annually, in which case wire transfer payments can be accepted. Free accounts are not required to provide a credit card number.
The Helprace Service is billed in advance on a monthly or annual basis in accordance with our pricing schedule. Partial refunds are issued in the case of an Upgrade, Downgrade or Cancellation of the Helprace Service subscriptions. Downgrading your Helprace Service may cause loss of content, features or capability of your Account. Stuffix does not accept any liability for such losses.
All fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties, excluding only United States (federal or state) taxes. In all other cases you agree to pay for any taxes that might be applicable to your use of the Helprace Service.
Violation of these Terms of Service
We have explicit right to investigate and prosecute any violations of these Terms of Service, including cooperating with law enforcement authorities in such matters. You also acknowledge that Stuffix has no obligation to prescreen or monitor your access to or use of the Helprace Service or any information, materials, content provided or made available through the Helprace Service (but reserves the right to do so). You understand and agree that Stuffix may, at our sole discretion, remove or delete any data, accounts or other content that violates these Terms of Service.
You are solely responsible for properly deleting your account. You can delete your account at any time from the “Subscription & Billing” page on the Settings Page in your Account. Only Helprace Users with the Owner role of an Account have access to this page. See this article for step-by-step instructions.
Any deletion of your account will result in the deactivation of your account and the removal of all content in your account. This information can be restored by request of the Account Owner to Stuffix during a 14-day period. Deleted accounts cannot be recovered or restored by Stuffix following this 14-day period. Stuffix may, for a time, retain residual account information in backup and/or archival copies of the database. We will make reasonable commercial efforts to delete your information as soon as possible after you communicate that intention to us.
Account Cancellation and Termination
Stuffix reserves the right to terminate any free accounts that do not have any activity (replies, topics, or logins) for sixty (60) days, or trial accounts thirty (30) days after expiration.
Stuffix has the right to suspend or terminate any account that breaches these Terms of Service for any reason at any time. Stuffix may also terminate a free account at any time in its sole discretion. Termination of your account will result in the deactivation or deletion of your account, access to your account, and the removal of all content in your account.
Modifications to Helprace Service and Prices
We reserve the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Helprace Service (or any part thereof) with or without notice. However, we will make the best effort to notify customers of any upcoming system maintenance and/or service disruptions. We will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, price change, suspension or discontinuance of the Helprace Service.
Any new features that impact your Helprace Service, including the release of new tools and resources, will be subject to these Terms of Service.
We reserve the right to change, modify, add to, supplement or delete portions of these Terms of Service from time to time without notice. We will use reasonable commercial efforts to provide you with notification of any substantial changes (as determined in our sole discretion) by email.
If any future changes to these Terms of Service are unacceptable to you or cause you to no longer be in compliance, you must immediately stop using the Helprace Service. Following any revision to these Terms of Service, your continued use of the Helprace Service constitutes your agreement and acceptance of any and all changes to the Terms of Service.
Prices of all Helprace Service plans are subject to change. If Stuffix does for any reason have to remove the plan you are on or require an upgrade to a different plan, we will provide you with at least six (6) months notice via email.
