However, we may elect, at our sole discretion, to monitor some, all, or none of the Services’ areas for adherence to this TOS or applicable law.

We strive to provide quality access.

We do not review third party data for accuracy, legality or non-infringement. We are not responsible for and cannot guarantee the accuracy or timeliness of the third party data we retrieve on your behalf directly from third party technology or data provider.
We cannot always foresee or anticipate technical or other difficulties which may result from third party sites in failure to obtain data or loss of data, personalized settings or other service interruptions.

In that case, you must provide accurate, current, and complete information during the registration process and at all other times when you use the Services. Additionally, you must update your account information to keep it accurate, current, and complete.
You are the sole authorized user of any account you create and responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account. You agree that you shall monitor your account to prevent use by any person under the age of 18, and you will accept full responsibility for any unauthorized use of your password or your account. You may not authorize others to use your account and you may not assign or otherwise transfer your account to any other person or entity. Should you suspect that any unauthorized party may be using your password or account, you will notify us by email at email@example.com.
We will not be liable and you may be liable for losses, damages, liability, expenses, and fees incurred by us or a third party arising from someone else using your account, regardless of whether you have notified us of such unauthorized use. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, or we have reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, we have the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Services. We may also suspend or terminate your subscription and/or account if, in its sole discretion, it believes: (a) you have violated these Terms; (b) you have violated any applicable law in connection with your use of the Services; (c) your continued use of the Services may endanger your health and safety or the health and safety of others; or (d) you have communicated or acted in an inappropriate, offensive, or discriminatory manner towards any of our employees. You agree not to create an account or use the Services if you have been previously removed by us, or if you have been previously banned from use of the Services.
Fees; Billing; Taxes
Accounts are either free or subject to fees, as specified in the Services Order.
Information on fees is available at www.taketurns.app/plans or otherwise provided to you by us; except as specifically stated in your Services Order, we may prospectively change rates or institute new charges at any time upon 30 days prior notice, which notice may be provided by e-mail. You agree to pay all charges, recurring fees, applicable taxes and other charges incurred by you at the rates in effect for the billing period in which those charges are incurred.
You must provide us with valid credit card or approved purchase order information as a condition to signing up for the Services. An authorized system administrator chosen by you may add subscriptions by adding users to the account. Added subscriptions will be subject to the following: (i) added subscriptions will be coterminous with the preexisting Subscription Period; (ii) the subscription fee for the added subscriptions will be the then current, generally applicable subscription fee; and (iii) authorization for End Users added in the middle of a billing month will be charged in full for that billing month. All specifically negotiated pricing terms are confidential, and you agree not to disclose them to any third party.
We charge and collect in advance for use of the Services. We will automatically renew and bill your credit card or issue an invoice to you each month or annually as specified in the Services Order.
For most billing plans we will charge your designated credit card monthly, but some charges are billed on a different schedule. You are responsible for all charges incurred, including applicable taxes and purchases made by you or anyone who is using an authorized account that you have caused to be created or for which you have otherwise indicated your agreement to be responsible for payment. This means that, unless your account or credit card information is obtained unlawfully or fraudulently, you will be responsible for all usage and purchases made on your card.
A service charge, up to the maximum allowed by the jurisdiction you reside in, will be assessed to your account for each payment that is refused for insufficient funds or otherwise to the extent permitted by law. Initial payment for usage are normally prepaid. Payments for additional usage is due prior to commencement of such usage. If your account is delinquent at the due date and without prejudice to any action for damages, your account (and accordingly use of the Services) may be suspended or canceled at our sole discretion and we may terminate the Agreement. If your account is suspended, regular charges continue to accrue until you cancel your account. We may, at our sole discretion, charge a fee to reinstate a suspended account to the extent permitted by law. Interest charges of 1% per month (or the highest rate permitted by law if lower than 1% per month) will accrue daily on any unpaid balance which is more than 30 days old to the extent permitted by law. You agree to pay all sales and use taxes, duties, or levies which are required by law as well as all attorney and collection fees arising from efforts to collect any unpaid balance on your account.
If the Agreement is governed by French Law, and pursuant to article L.441-10 of the French Commercial Code, any delay in payment shall automatically and without prior notice results in (i) the application of late payment penalties calculated from the payment due date, at the rate equivalent to the higher amount between five (5) times the legal interest rate or 3% of the due amounts at the interest rate of the European Central Bank at its most recent refinancing operation plus 10 points, plus the applicable VAT, per month, (ii) a recovery fee for the recovery costs of €40 as well as (iii) the actual costs in case of recovery fees higher than this flat recovery fee. If the interest rate for late payment defined above is lower than the minimum rate set forth in Article L441-10 of the French Commercial Code, the late charge will be calculated by applying this minimum rate. The interests are capitalized according to the provisions of article 1343-2 of the French Civil Code.
In the event of termination of the Agreement before the end of the Subscription Period, all amounts due by you under this Agreement, for all the duration of all your subscriptions, will be invoiced and immediately due and payable and payments already made will not be refunded.
You agree to provide us with complete and accurate billing and contact information. This information includes your legal company name, street address, company registration number, e-mail address, and name and telephone number of an authorized billing contact and account administrator (meaning those End Users designated by you who are authorized to add End Users and to create End User accounts and otherwise administer your use of the Services). You agree to update this information within 30 days of any change to it. If the contact information you have provided is false or fraudulent, we reserve the right to terminate your access to the Services in addition to any other legal remedies.
You should let us know about any billing problems or discrepancies within 60 days after they first appear on your account statement. If you do not bring them to our attention within 60 days, you agree that you waive your right to dispute such problems or discrepancies. Additionally, if any charges are being collected by us on behalf of a supplier, then such supplier shall be an express third party beneficiary of this Section.
All fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities on the transactions contemplated by this TOS (other than personal property or taxes on or measured by our net or gross income for which we remain responsible). We may collect such taxes or fees as required by law, but in any event you shall pay, indemnify and hold us harmless from all sales, use, value added or other taxes of any nature, including penalties and interest, and all government permit or license fees assessed upon or with respect to any fees.
