7. PAYMENT FOR SERVICES
Certain features of the Services may require you to pay fees. Before you pay any fees, you will have an opportunity to review and accept the fees that you will be charged. All fees are in U.S. Dollars and, unless explicitly provided otherwise herein, are non-refundable.
Supplier reserves the right to determine pricing for the Services. Supplier will make reasonable efforts to keep pricing information published on the website up to date, available at /prices. We encourage you to check our website periodically for current pricing information. Supplier may change the fees for any feature of the Services, including additional fees or charges, if Supplier gives you advance notice of changes before they apply. Supplier, at its sole discretion, may make promotional offers with different features and different pricing to any of Supplier’ customers. These promotional offers, unless made to you, will not apply to your offer or this Agreement. The fees set forth in the applicable Order or ordering interface are exclusive of all federal, state, municipal, or other government excise, sales, use, value added or other taxes now in force or enacted in the future, and Customer shall pay any such tax (excluding taxes on Supplier’ net income) that Supplier may be required to collect or pay now or at any time in the future with respect to such fees. Unless otherwise set forth in the Order, Customer shall pay all Supplier’ undisputed invoices within 30 days after Customer receives invoice. Payment of the amounts due to Supplier shall be made in accordance with the payment schedule set forth on the Order or other ordering interface.
You authorize Supplier or a third party payment processor to charge all sums for the Orders you enter into, orders that you make and any level of Services you select as described in this Agreement or published by Supplier, including all applicable taxes, to the payment method specified in your account. If you pay any fees with a credit card, a third party payment processor may seek pre-authorization of your credit card account prior to your purchase to verify that the credit card is valid and has the necessary funds or credit available to cover your purchase.
7.3. Subscription Services
The paid Services may include automatically recurring payments for periodic charges (“Subscription”). The price, term, and restrictions of any Subscription will be set forth in an applicable Order. If you activate a Subscription, you authorize Supplier to periodically charge, on a going-forward basis and until cancellation of either the recurring payments or your account, all accrued sums on or before the payment due date for the accrued sums. The “Subscription Billing Date” is the date when you purchase your first Subscription. For information on the “Subscription Fee,” please see our /prices page. Your account will be charged automatically on the Subscription Billing Date all applicable fees and taxes for the next Subscription period. The Subscription will continue unless and until you cancel your Subscription or we terminate it. You must cancel your Subscription before it renews in order to avoid billing of the next periodic Subscription Fee to your account. We will bill the periodic Subscription Fee to the payment method you provide to us during registration (or to a different payment method if you change your payment information). You may cancel the Subscription via your Portal (under Account and Settings) or by contacting us at help at talentlms dot com. If Customer terminates the Subscription for convenience within the first three months of an annual Subscription, Customer will be eligible to receive a pro-rated refund of pre-paid amounts, excluding a cancellation fee of 10% deducted from such refund. Such refund is not available with respect to any renewal Subscription period. If you elect not to renew a Subscription, your account will be downgraded to the free version of the Services and you acknowledge and accept that this may result to Customer Content becoming inaccessible or permanently deleted.
7.4. Delinquent Accounts
Supplier may suspend or terminate access to the Services, including fee-based portions of the Services, for any account for which any amount is due but unpaid. In addition to the amount due for the Services, a delinquent account will be charged with fees or charges that are incidental to any chargeback or collection of any the unpaid amount, including collection fees.
8. PAYMENTS TO CUSTOMER
If you offer third parties or Authorized Users a Customer Course Store Course or Customer Delivered Course, as applicable, in exchange for a fee, then you may receive the fees charged less certain fees and expenses (your “CustomerFees”) using Supplier’s third-party service provider (e.g., Stripe). You may select the fee, as well as the bundling of materials in exchange for a discount, if Supplier makes such option available. You may be required to have an account with that third-party service provider or with another financial institution in order to receive your Customer Fees, and you may be charged fees for any related processing services. Any fees charged by Supplier’s third-party service provider or by any other financial institution are between you and that provider or institution and may be subject to their terms and conditions or any agreement you have with them. Supplier may place limits on the balance of Customer Fees you need in order to cash out and on the amount of Customer Fees you may cash out in any given day or transaction, and Supplier may update these limits from time to time at its discretion. In no event may Customer Cash Out more than $1,000 per day. “Cash Out” means for Customer to receive or redeem Customer Fees, whether such payment is made using Supplier’s third-party service provider or with another financial institution.

No terms, provisions or conditions of any purchase order, acknowledgement, or other business form that either party may use in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement will have any effect on the rights, duties, or obligations of the parties under, or otherwise modify, this Agreement, regardless of any failure of a receiving party to object to such terms, provisions, or conditions. No amendment or modification of this Agreement shall be valid and binding unless made and confirmed in writing or otherwise signed by the parties hereto.
In the event that any one or more provisions of this Agreement become invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
No waiver by either party of any default shall be deemed as a waiver of any prior or subsequent default of the same or other provisions of this Agreement.
21.5. Force Majeure
Any delay in or failure of performance by either party under this Agreement will not be considered a breach of this Agreement and will be excused to the extent caused by any occurrence beyond the reasonable control of such party including accident, acts of God, fire or water damage, criminal conduct, neglect, acts of war, riots, strikes, lightening, electrical disturbances or other similar causes. Such events, occurrences or causes do not include inability to meet financial obligations. The time of performance hereunder is extended by a period of time lost because of such delay. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this section, should the Force Majeure Event last for more than 30 days, the non-affected party may terminate this Agreement immediately upon written notice to the affected party.
During the Term: (a) Customer agrees to participate in case studies and other similar marketing efforts reasonably requested by Supplier; (b) Supplier may disclose that Customer is a customer of Supplier to third parties; and (c) Supplier may include on and in Supplier’ website, case studies, marketing materials, and conference presentations and other speaking opportunities, Customer’s testimonials and other feedback regarding the Services, name, website URL, use case, and logo and other marks. Upon request from Customer, Supplier will promptly stop making the disclosure and use described in the foregoing sentence except to the extent already included in any then-existing materials.
This Agreement is not assignable or transferable by Customer except with Supplier’ prior written consent; provided, however, that Customer may, upon prior written notice to Supplier, transfer and assign its rights and obligations under this Agreement to an Affiliate or in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of its assets to which this Agreement relate. If such a transfer or assignment is made in favor of a direct competitor of Supplier, then Supplier may terminate this Agreement upon written notice to Customer. Supplier may freely assign this Agreement. Any assignment in violation of the foregoing is void.
