2. Privacy & Security.
Propertyware’s privacy and security policies may be viewed at https://www.propertyware.com/privacy-policy/. Propertyware reserves the right to modify its privacy and security policies in its reasonable discretion from time to time. When users initially log in, they will be asked whether they wish to receive marketing and other non-critical Services-related communications from Propertyware from time to time. User may opt out of receiving such communications at that time or at any subsequent time. Because the Services are provided via a hosted, online application, Propertyware occasionally may need to notify all users of the Services (regardless of whether they have opted out as described above) of important announcements regarding the operation of the Services.
3. License Grant & Restrictions.

4. User’s Responsibilities.
User is solely responsible for all activity occurring with regard to User’s account(s) and shall abide by all applicable local, state, national and foreign laws, treaties and regulations in connection with User’s use of the Service, including those related to data privacy, international communications and the transmission of technical or personal data.

12. Charges and Billing.
Propertyware charges and collects non-refundable fees in advance for use of the Services. Propertyware will automatically renew User’s subscription and charge User’s credit card every month or year, depending on User’s authorization and subscription type. Propertyware grants no refunds or credits for partial months or years of Services. All fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and User shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies or duties. Propertyware charges for the Services excludes taxes, phone and Internet access charges and other data transmissions. Your invoice may include taxes, levies or duties that Propertyware is required to collect by applicable taxing jurisdictions. User must provide Propertyware with a valid credit card as a condition to subscribing to the Services. Propertyware reserves the right to modify its fees and to introduce new charges at any time, upon at least 15 days’ prior notice to User, which notice may be provided by email or posted on the Propertyware Site or application.
User may upgrade or downgrade the Services at any time during the term by written notice to Propertyware (downgrades are only available with monthly subscription accounts, from one paying level to another – User may not downgrade from a paying account to a free account), applicable to the billing cycle next following Propertyware’s receipt of such written notice. For any upgrade or downgrade in package level, the credit card that you provided as part of your Registration Data will automatically be charged the new rate on your next billing cycle. Propertyware will not extend any credit or refund for partial months of service in the case of downgrades to a monthly subscription. The expiration/renewal date of Services, whether monthly or annual, will not change. Fees may not be credited towards other Services.
User shall maintain with Propertyware a valid credit card on the Subscription Settings page of the User account at all times. Regardless of User’s payment method, User’s subscription to the Services authorizes Propertyware to charge User’s credit card.

User agrees to provide and maintain to Propertyware complete and accurate billing and contact information. This information includes User’s legal name or company name, credit card and billing address, email address, name and telephone number of an authorized billing contact.

13. Excess Data Storage Fees.
The Services include a maximum disk storage space of 1 GB per account, and disk storage space in addition to this amount shall submit User to additional fees, at Propertyware’s then current rate for storage fees. Propertyware shall not be responsible for notifying User when its disk storage is approaching or has reached the permitted disk storage; Propertyware’s failure to so notify User shall not affect User’s responsibility for such additional storage charges. Propertyware reserves the right to establish or modify its general practices and limits relating to storage of User Data.
Propertyware charges and collects in advance fees for use of the Services. Propertyware will renew automatically User’s subscription and charge User’s credit card every month or year at the commencement of each consecutive renewal term, which shall be monthly or annual depending on User’s subscription type, unless you elect to cancel the Services or Propertyware terminates your subscription, as provided below. The renewal charge will be based upon the then-current Fee at the time of renewal.
15. Non-Payment and Suspension.

Propertyware reserves the right to impose a reconnection fee in the event User’s account access is suspended and thereafter reinstated. User agrees and acknowledges that Propertyware has no obligation to retain User Data upon suspension or termination of a subscription and that such User Data may be irretrievably deleted if User’s account is 15 days or more delinquent.

For monthly subscriptions, User is purchasing the Services for full monthly terms, If User terminates Services prior to the end of a monthly term, User will be responsible for that month’s full Fee through the end of the then-current term, including, without limitation, unbilled charges, which will immediately become due and payable. User shall pay all accrued but unpaid fees upon expiration of the term of or termination of Services.
For fixed term annual subscriptions (i.e., twelve (12) months), User has committed to purchase the Services for the full annual term, to be paid annually in advance. User’s annual subscription will renew automatically after the initial fixed term is over, unless terminated as herein provided. User may cancel the Services prior to expiration of the annual term without refund. User shall pay all accrued but unpaid fees upon expiration of the term of or termination of Services.
If User cancels the Services before the end of the term, your cancellation will take effect immediately.
