You agree to provide true, accurate, current, and complete information about yourself, or the entity you represent, and you agree not to misrepresent your Profile Information. OnPodium is not responsible for any Profile Information that may be lost or irrecoverable through the use of the Site or Services.
For as long as you remain the Account Owner and in compliance with this Agreement, you have the right to access and use the Services. This right is non-transferable, and you agree not to disclose your User ID to any Third Party. You are solely responsible for all activities that occur within your Account. If you become aware of any unauthorized use of your Account or Profile Information, you are responsible for notifying OnPodium immediately. It is your responsibility to update or change any Account or Profile Information, as needed or desired.
Billing information can be updated from within your Account, and may only be changed by the Account Owner. OnPodium disclaims all liability where Account ownership is disputed, and will not participate or play any role in such disputes. OnPodium will automatically charge the credit card on file; should the billing information be changed, the new credit card will be charged. If an updated credit card is under a different name, the owner of the updated card becomes the Account Owner. OnPodium will not change your billing information for you, under any circumstances, and will not be held responsible if an unauthorized party accesses your Account or changes your billing details. OnPodium does not see or store full credit card numbers at any time.
You agree to pay all Subscription fees, including but not limited to: fees based on Add-Ons, traffic to your pages, and number of pages, popups, and sticky bars in your Account and all sub-accounts. Unless otherwise specified in a Subscription, such fees will be billed in advance for each month and are non-refundable. You agree that you may not be refunded or credited for partial months of service, or for periods in which your Account remains open but you do not use the Services. If you exceed any usage or fee thresholds set forth in your Subscription, we may charge you for such overages on your next invoice.
We reserve the right to modify our billing rates at any time upon thirty (30) days written notice by posting these fee changes to the Site or by notifying you via email. Should you continue to use the Services after these changes go into effect, you will be responsible for paying the new Subscription/billing rate.
By entering a credit card number, you agree that OnPodium, and our Third Party service providers, may store your payment card information. You expressly authorize us to charge you, where applicable: (i) Subscription Fees, to be billed during a Subscription Period (ii) other fees for Services purchased, including, but not limited to, Add-Ons (iii) charges for use of the Services in excess of visitor, page, or other limitations, and (iv) taxes connected with your use of the Services.
You agree to reimburse us, where applicable, for all collection costs and interest for any overdue amounts. If the payment card you provide expires and you do not update your payment card information or cancel your Subscription, you authorize us to suspend your Account until your billing details have been updated. After an Account suspension, you agree that we may re-attempt payment processing upon receiving updated billing details.
Your paid Subscription is valid for either a monthly or an annual Subscription Period. Your Free Account is valid until such time as you upgrade or request Account deletion (by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org from the email address on file and requesting that we delete your Account).
If you upgrade to a higher-level Subscription during the Subscription Period, you will have immediate access to those higher level features. You agree to pay OnPodium the difference between your original Subscription fee and the cost of the upgrade.
If you downgrade to a lower-level Subscription during the Subscription Period, you will receive a credit to your Account representing the difference between your original and your downgraded Subscription costs.
Changes to Subscriptions will be reflected in your next invoice. No credits or refunds will be issued for downgrading from a paid subscription to a Free Account (cancelling).
Your Subscription will automatically renew for an additional Subscription Period unless you cancel (see “Cancellation and Termination” below).
You may cancel your monthly Subscription at any time, either from within your Account or by sending an email to email@example.com, from the email address affiliated with your Account. Should you contact Customer Support to request assistance with Subscription Cancellation or account deletion, OnPodium reserves the right to verify your identity by asking for the last four (4) digits of the credit card on file, the type of card, the billing address, and additional security questions.
To cancel over the phone, you must verify the last four (4) digits of the credit card on file, the type of card, and the billing address, as well as answer a series of security questions.
Changes to annual Subscriptions, including Cancellations, go into effect at the end of the annual Subscription Period. No refunds or credits shall be issued for annual Subscription Cancellations or downgrades, or from switching from an annual to a monthly Subscription before the end of the annual Subscription Period.
Cancellations must be completed at least one (1) day prior to the end of your then-current Subscription Period, whether monthly or annual; otherwise, billing for the next month or year will be processed automatically. Cancellations performed after billing are not entitled to refunds, in whole or in part.
You are responsible for all charges accrued on your Account up to the time of Cancellation, including all fees within the Subscription Period in which you cancel. Upon Subscription Cancellation, you are placed on a Free Account, which OnPodium shall delete within twelve (12) months of the date of Cancellation, unless you re-Subscribe before the end of the 12 month period, or make other arrangements with us to retain your Account and its affiliated Personal Data. Account deletion permanently removes all pages, popups, sticky bars, Content, and leads, as well as your email address and other Personal Data. OnPodium is not responsible for any Content lost as a result of Account deletion. We reserve the right to change our data storage and processing capabilities and procedures at any time, without notice or liability, subject to applicable laws.
OnPodium reserves the right to terminate this Agreement at any time, for any reason, and at our sole discretion, without liability. A reason for such termination may be, but is not limited to, failure to comply with these Terms. OnPodium reserves the right to modify, suspend, or discontinue the Site and/or Services, or any portion thereof, at any time and for any reason, with or without notice.
The sections “Submission of Content”, “Intellectual Property Rights”, “Confidential Information”, “Third Party Sites and Content”, “Disclaimer, Exclusion, and Limitation of Liability”, “Indemnification”, “Waiver of Jury Trial and Class Action Rights”, and “Dispute Resolution” will survive any actual or purported termination or expiry of this Agreement and continue in full force and effect.

From time to time and at our sole discretion, we may offer you the opportunity to try a new product or service for free for a limited time. Before the end of the Trial Program, you must decide whether you would like to continue using the new feature, should we choose to offer it.
