PLEASE READ THESE CUSTOMER TERMS OF SERVICE CAREFULLY.
This is a contract between you (the Customer) and us (Socialincs). It describes the services we will provide to you, how we will work together, and other aspects of our business relationship. It is a legal document so some of the language is necessarily “legalese”, but we have tried to make it as readable as possible. These terms are so important that we cannot provide our products and services to you unless you agree to them. By using the Subscription Service or receiving the Consulting Services, you are agreeing to these terms.
We periodically update these terms. If you have an active Socialincs subscription, we will let you know when we do via an email or in-app notification.
Finally, we know legal terms can sometimes be difficult to navigate, so we wanted to give you a roadmap of the Agreement:
. This is where we provide the detail on what the key defined terms in the Agreement mean. You can think of this kind of like a contractual dictionary.
B. GENERAL COMMERCIAL TERMS.
Here’s where you can find the basics about how our Subscription Service and Consulting Services are provided. For example, you can find information on access and acceptable use. These terms apply to all of our products and service offerings.
• C. SUBSCRIPTION TERMS. Customers of ours subscribe to use our software (SaaS), and there are some fundamental terms that apply to each subscription. There are some differences between the different types of subscriptions, and here’s where you can find that detail.
• D. PRODUCT DISCLOSURES.
We offer several different products and there are some important things to know before you use them. We’ve collected these important things to know and you can find them here.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Agreement or this section, this 'Service Uptime Commitment' section does not apply to our Free Services.
4. Consulting Services.

Unless we otherwise agree, the Consulting Services we provide are described in the Product and Services Catalog and will be delivered in English. Fees for these Consulting Services are in addition to your Subscription Fee. If you purchase Consulting Services that recur, they will be considered part of your subscription and will renew in accordance with your subscription.
All Consulting Services are performed remotely, unless you and we otherwise agree.
For Consulting Services performed on-site, you will reimburse us our reasonable costs for all expenses incurred in connection with the Consulting Services. Any invoices or other requests for reimbursements will be due and payable within thirty (30) days of the date of the invoice.

5. Fees and Payments
a. Subscription Fees.
The Subscription Fee will remain fixed during the initial terms of your subscription unless you: (i) exceed your Maximum Contacts, Email Send Limit, User or other applicable limits (see the ‘Limits’ section below), (ii) upgrade products or base packages, (iii) subscribe to additional features or products, including additional Contacts, or (iv) unless otherwise agreed to in the Order. You can learn more about how your fees may be otherwise adjusted in the remainder of this 'Fees and Payment' section below.
For our Full-Service Marketing Hub Products, once increased, your Subscription Fee will not decrease, even if there is a subsequent reduction in the number of Contacts or emails sent. For details on how to manage your Contacts to avoid an increase in your Subscription Fee, see the 'Fee Adjustments in Next Billing Period' section below. We will monitor or audit remotely the number of Contacts in the Subscription Service and the number of emails that you send on the Subscription Service. If you subscribe to our Full-Service Marketing Hub Products, this information is also made available to you in your Socialincs account.
For our products that have applicable User limits, you will be charged fees associated with all Paid Users. For Sales Hub and Proximx Marketing products, your number of Paid Users will not decrease, even if there is a subsequent reduction in the number of assigned Paid Users.
b. Fee Adjustments in Next Billing Period
. We determine the Contact tier for the next Billing Period by reviewing the number of Contacts in your account. For our Full-Service Marketing Products, we complete this review between forty (40) and twenty-five (25) days before the start of your next Billing Period. For our Quellp Hub Starter product, we complete this review on the last day of your Billing Period. If the number of Contacts in your account exceed your Maximum Contacts when we complete this review, then your Subscription Fee will increase at the beginning of the next Billing Period up to the tier price which corresponds with the reviewed number of Contacts. Tier prices are as set forth in our Product and Services Catalog.
We allow you to reasonably manage the number of Contacts during the course of a Billing Period and will not count Contacts removed before our review, unless these Contacts are temporarily removed to avoid a fee increase. If Contacts are temporarily removed to avoid a fee increase, we may consider the maximum number of Contacts from the reviewed Billing Period for the purposes of determining your Contact tier.
This review and upgrade process will continue for each Billing Period during the Subscription Term.
c. Fee Adjustments During a Billing Period
. For our Full-Service Marketing Hub Products, the Subscription Fee will increase during the course of a Billing Period if you exceed your Email Send Limit in a Billing Period. In this case, the Subscription Fee will increase to the tier price which corresponds with your maximum monthly email sends from the current Billing Period.
For our Quellp Hub Starter and Socialincs CRM products, if you reach your Email Send Limit, you will not be able to send any more emails until the start of the next calendar month, including emails pre-scheduled to go out after reaching the Email Send Limit. Kick-back emails from form conversion will not be interrupted. For our Quellp Hub Starter product, you may increase your Email Send Limit by purchasing additional Contacts, in which case your fee will increase during the course of a Billing Period. For our Socialincs CRM product you may not increase your Email Send Limit.
The Subscription Fee will increase during a Billing Period up to the corresponding base package and tier price (as set forth in our Product and Services Catalog) if you exceed the subdomains limit, add Paid Users, exceed other applicable limits (except as set forth in the ‘Fee Adjustments in Next Billing Period’ section), change or add products, or subscribe to additional features for use during the Billing Period. We may choose to decrease your fees upon written notice to you.
d. Fee Adjustments at Renewal
. Upon renewal, we may increase your fees up to our then-current list price set out in our Product and Services Catalog. If this increase applies to you, we will notify you at least thirty (30) days in advance of your renewal and the increased fees will apply at the start of the next renewal term. If you do not agree to this increase, either party can choose to terminate your subscription at the end of your then-current term by giving the notice required in the ‘Notice of Non-Renewal’ section below.
For our Quellp Hub Starter product, upon renewal, your subscription will be adjusted to match Contact tier that corresponds with the number of Contacts in your portal on the last day of your then-current Subscription Term. For more detail on renewal pricing, see the ‘Term and Renewal’ section below.
e. Payment by credit card. If you are paying by credit card, you authorize us to charge your credit card or bank account for all fees payable during the Subscription Term. You further authorize us to use a third party to process payments, and consent to the disclosure of your payment information to such third party.
f. Payment against invoice. If you are paying by invoice, we will invoice you no more than forty-five (45) days before the beginning of the Subscription Term and each subsequent Billing Period, and other times during the Subscription Term when fees are payable. All amounts invoiced are due and payable within thirty (30) days from the date of the invoice, unless otherwise specified in the Order Form.
g. Payment Information.
You will keep your contact information, billing information and credit card information (where applicable) up to date. Changes may be made on your Billing Page within your Socialincs account. All payment obligations are non-cancelable and all amounts paid are non-refundable, except as specifically provided for in this Agreement. All fees are due and payable in advance throughout the Subscription Term. If you are a Socialincs Solutions Partner that purchases on behalf of a client, you agree to be responsible for the Order Form and to guarantee payment of all fees.
