8. Charges and Payment of Fees
User shall pay all fees and charges to User’s account in accordance with the fees, charges, and billing terms in effect at the time a fee or charge is due and payable. The initial charges will vary with the level of service selected, in addition to additional service charges that may apply. All payments for services will be charged to the credit card, debit card, or bank account provided by User. User is responsible for paying for all fees and charges billed to User in connection with User’s use of the Service, whether or not such Service is actively used or whether or not the Service was effective, implemented, or installed. Property Matrix will continue to bill and charge User for the Service until notified otherwise in writing by User. User must provide Property Matrix with a valid credit card, debit card, or approved bank account as a condition for use and access to the Service. Property Matrix reserves the right to modify its fees and charges and to introduce new charges at any time, upon thirty (30) days prior notice to User, which notice may be provided by e-mail, telephone, or by a message-box notification as part of the use of the Service. Such message-box notification shall constitute written notice in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
9. Billing and Renewal
Property Matrix charges and collects fees, charges, and billings related to the Service in advance for use of the Service. Property Matrix automatically renews User’s subscription and bills User’s credit card for such subscription every month for monthly access to the Service. Fees for other services will be charged on an as-quoted basis. Property Matrix’s fees and charges are billed exclusive of applicable taxes, levies, and duties imposed by taxing authorities and governmental agencies, for which User shall be solely responsible. User represents that User shall promptly pay all applicable taxes, levies, and/or duties that may arise in connection with User’s use of the Service. User agrees to provide Property Matrix with complete and accurate billing and contact information at the time of registration and commencement of use of the Service.

Unless Property Matrix in its sole and absolute discretion determines otherwise, Users whose operations are primarily centered in the United States of America will be billed and charged in U.S. dollars and subject to U.S. payment terms and pricing schemes (“U.S. Customers”).

In the event that User disputes, or disagrees with any fee, charge, billing, or invoice, User must notify Property Matrix in writing within thirty (30) days of the charge date of any such disputed fee or charge. User’s failure to timely provide written notice to Property Matrix shall constitute a waiver of a right to dispute the validity of the charge and further shall constitute User’s acceptance of the fees, charges, and amounts charged as accurate and legitimate charges with respect to User. User’s failure to dispute any amount charged to User’s credit card, debit card, bank account, or charge card, shall constitute User’s expressed consent to the validity and accuracy of the amount charged. Property Matrix offers a thirty (30) day money-back guarantee, as follows and subject to the following terms: User may within thirty (30) days of the initial charge date, request a refund of (i) User’s first monthly Service fee; and (ii) User’s setup fee; provided however that User must timely submit a written refund request to Property Matrix.

Property Matrix reserves the right to impose a reconnection fee to restore use of the Service or access to the Content or the Service, at Property Matrix’s sole and absolute discretion, in the event User’s Service and/or access to the Content shall become suspended or terminated at any time for any reason including without limitation for non-payment. User agrees and acknowledges that Property Matrix has no obligation to retain and/or store Customer Data or any information uploaded to or transmitted through or to the Service, and that any and all Customer Data may be irretrievably deleted and purged from all systems and/or databases in the custody, possession, or control of Property Matrix in the event that User’s account is delinquent thirty (30) days or more.

In the event of exigent circumstances, at Property Matrix’s sole and exclusive discretion, Property Matrix reserves the right to cancel User’s account and/or User’s access to the Service, or to otherwise limit, hinder, delay, or restrict User’s access to or use of the Service without any prior warning or notice to User whatsoever.

18. Liquidated Damages
User and Property Matrix agree that both the User and Property Matrix have and will commit substantial resources to the implementation of the Content and the Service, and that by implementing the Content and the Service the User and Property Matrix may be exposed to loss and/or damage(s) in connection with the use, implementation, and reliance on the Service and/or the Content. User and Property Matrix acknowledge that it would be difficult and impractical for the parties to determine the actual harm, if any, to User in the event of any failure, defect, error, or fault of the Content, the Service, or of Property Matrix and/or its staff, employees, technicians, directors, officers, and agents, whether such failure, defect, error, or fault was caused by the action, inaction, omission, intentional act, negligent act, or any other reason whatsoever of any individual, entity, software, and/or hardware. Notwithstanding such difficulty, User and Property Matrix hereby agree to quantify and monetize any and all damage, harm, and impairment that User may suffer as result of any reason whatsoever in connection with (i) the Service; (ii) the Content; and (iii) Property Matrix, setting such quantified and monetized damage at a liquidated damages sum of seven hundred and fifty dollars ($750.00) for all acts, damages, harm, or impairment, that User may incur in any twelve (12) month period, irrespective of whether the damage, harm, or impairment was/were caused by a single event, a multiplicity of events, a single action or inaction, or a multiplicity of actions or inactions, whether inadvertent, intentional, or otherwise.

20. Additional Rights
Certain states and/or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental, consequential or certain other types of damages. To the narrow and limited extent that any of the foregoing disclaims liability for warranties or liability which may not be disclaimed under the governing jurisdiction interpreting or enforcing this Agreement, so disclaimers shall not apply to User. In such an event, User expressly assumes onto itself the risk of loss, risk of harm, and risk of any and all damages resulting from any breach of any such non-excludable warranty or limitation of liability. In the event that any portion, provision, clause, or phrase, of this Agreement is determined by a Court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, unlawful, or unenforceable, such portion, provision, clause, or phrase shall be severed from the remainder of this Agreement and shall not in any respect nullify, void, or otherwise impair the enforceability of the remainder of this Agreement. The parties desire that any adjudicating body enforcing this Agreement give effect to its purpose and intent to the fullest extent as permitted by law. The unenforceability of any provision(s) hereto shall in no way affect any other provision hereto, and further shall not alter the validity or enforceability of any other provision hereto.
