11. Fees and Payment for Purchased Third-Party Services

This section outlines all fees and payments associated with third-party services acquired through GFoundry’s platform.

11.1 User Fees

The cost of the Paid Service Offerings will be as listed on the GFoundry website, unless specified otherwise herein or on the website.

Fees will be quoted and payable in the currency indicated on the GFoundry website. Fees are based on the services purchased, and additional charges may apply based on actual usage. All payment obligations are non-cancellable, and fees paid are non-refundable, except as mentioned in section 5.5.

We reserve the right to modify the fees and to start charging for services that are currently free. You will not be charged for using any services unless you opt for a paid plan.

Subscription fees are calculated based on monthly periods, commencing from the subscription start date and each subsequent monthly anniversary.

11.2 Invoicing and Payment

You are required to provide valid, up-to-date credit card or bank account information. You authorize us to charge your credit card or bank account for the initial subscription term and any renewals. Such charges will be made in advance, annually, monthly, or quarterly, depending on the type of fee. For instance, monthly fees will be billed monthly. If you cancel your subscription, your account will remain active until the end of the paid period. Cancellations will only be effective from the next subscription period or after the current subscription ends.

11.3 Suspension of Service and Acceleration

If any attempt to charge your credit card or bank account is denied, we may accelerate your unpaid fee obligations under such agreements, causing all such obligations to become immediately due and payable, and we may suspend the paid services until these amounts are paid in full.

11.4 Taxes

Unless otherwise specified, our fees do not include any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments, such as value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes, that can be levied by any local, state, provincial, federal or foreign jurisdiction. You are responsible for paying all taxes associated with your purchases. If we have a legal obligation to pay or collect taxes for which you are responsible, the relevant amount will be charged to your provided credit card or bank account. If you qualify for any tax waivers, you should address the tax authorities for the relevant refunds.

11.5 Refunds

GFoundry will cease monthly or yearly automatic billing on any account when you opt out of the Paid services. If you sign up for a monthly service and request cancellation, your account will no longer be rebilled starting from the date of your notification. The Paid Plan service will remain active until the renewal date; at this point, the account will be downgraded to a free plan, and billing will cease. GFoundry will refund any charges made if your request was placed before your rebill date and your account was still charged.

Annual plan fees that are discounted are non-refundable.

By using the GFoundry platform, you acknowledge that you have read these terms of service, understand them, and agree to be bound by them.
