5. FEES AND EXPENSES; PAYMENTS.
5.1 Fees. The Fees and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the service, such as taxes and possible transaction fees, will be charged to your Payment Method (as defined below) on the schedule set forth in an applicable Order Form. The length of your billing cycle will depend on the type of subscription that you choose when you sign-up for the service, monthly or annual. Ciro may authorize your Payment Method in anticipation of subscription or service-related charges through various methods, including authorizing it up to approximately one month of service as soon as you register. Fees shall be due and payable upon receipt of an invoice provided by Ciro.
Sometimes we offer the Service on a “self-serve” basis, in which case you will have the opportunity to click through these Terms and select the aspects of the Service you want to purchase, including an amount of credits that can be used for data. When you purchase credits, they have an expiration date, which is generally the end of your billing cycle – for most accounts, the end of the month. Do not purchase credits if you are not able to use them during your billing cycle.
We may permit you (in our discretion) to increase the number of seats or users licensed to you during a term, in which case we will then begin to charge you at the new per-seat price. While you may (in our discretion) increase the number of seats during a term, you may not decrease the number of seats during a term: once you increase your per-seat license, you will be charged on that per-seat basis through the remainder of a term. You may not seat-share or time-share: you may only permit one license seat per individual user, at any given time.
5.2 Payment Methods. To use the Services you must provide one or more current, valid, accepted methods of payment, as may be updated from time to time, which may include, if applicable, an account for ACH payment (a “Payment Method”). You authorize Ciro to charge any Payment Method associated to your account in case your primary Payment Method is declined or no longer available to Ciro for payment of Fees. You remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not cancel your account, Ciro may suspend your access to the service until Ciro has successfully charged a valid Payment Method. For some Payment Methods, the issuer may charge you certain fees, such as foreign transaction fees or other fees relating to the processing of your Payment Method. Check with your Payment Method service provider for details.
5.3 Updating your Payment Methods. To update your Payment Method, please email email@example.com. Ciro may also update your Payment Methods using information provided by the payment service providers. Following any update, you authorize Ciro to continue to charge the applicable Payment Method(s).
5.4 Changes to the Price and Subscription Plans. Ciro reserves the right to change Ciro’s subscription plans, required Payment Methods or adjust pricing for the Services in any manner and at any time as Ciro may determine in Ciro’s sole and absolute discretion. Except as otherwise expressly provided for in these Terms and Conditions, any price changes or changes to your subscription plan will take effect at the beginning of the next applicable renewal term.
5.5 No Refunds. Payments are nonrefundable and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods. Following any cancellation, other than termination by Ciro due to Customer’s breach pursuant to Section 12.2, you will continue to have access to the service through the end of your current billing period. At any time, and for any reason, Ciro may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of Ciro’s subscribers. The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at Ciro’s sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate Ciro to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance.
5.6 Taxes. The Fees are exclusive of all applicable sales, use, value-added and other taxes, and all applicable duties, tariffs, assessments, export and import fees, or other similar charges, and Customer will be responsible for payment of all such taxes (other than taxes based on Ciro’s income), fees, duties, and charges and any related penalties and interest, arising from the payment of the fees, the provision of the Services, or the license of the Ciro Solution to Customer. Customer will make all payments of Fees to Ciro free and clear of, and without reduction for, any withholding taxes; any such taxes imposed on payments of Fees to Ciro will be Customer’s sole responsibility, and Customer will provide Ciro with official receipts issued by the appropriate taxing authority, or such other evidence as Ciro may reasonably request, to establish that such taxes have been paid.
5.7 Interest. Any amounts 30 days’ past due will bear interest at the rate of one and one half percent (1.5%) per month, or the maximum legal rate if less, from the due date until paid.
6. SUBMITTED DATA AND RESPONSIBILITIES.
6.1 Customer Warranty. Customer is solely responsible for any and all obligations with respect to the accuracy, quality and legality of Submitted Data. Customer will obtain all third party licenses, consents and permissions needed for Ciro to use the Submitted Data to provide the Services.

8. WARRANTIES AND DISCLAIMERS.
8.1 Limited Warranty. Ciro represents and warrants that it will provide the Services and perform its other obligations under this Agreement in a professional and workmanlike manner substantially consistent with general industry standards. Ciro further warrants to Customer that the Ciro Solution will operate free from Errors during the Term, provided that such warranty will not apply to failures to conform to the Documentation to the extent such failures arise, in whole or in part, from (a) any use of the Ciro Solution not in accordance with this Agreement or as specified in the Documentation; (b) any use of the Ciro Solution in combination with other products, equipment, software or data not supplied by Ciro; or (c) any modification of the Ciro Solution by any person other than Ciro or its authorized agents.

9.1 Types of Damages. IN NO EVENT WILL EITHER PARTY BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER PARTY FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, REGARDLESS OF THE NATURE OF THE CLAIM, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOST PROFITS, COSTS OF DELAY, ANY FAILURE OF DELIVERY, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, COSTS OF LOST OR DAMAGED DATA OR DOCUMENTATION, OR LIABILITIES TO THIRD PARTIES ARISING FROM ANY SOURCE, EVEN IF A PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

At the Disclosing Party’s request or upon termination or expiration of this Agreement, the Receiving Party will return to the Disclosing Party or destroy (or permanently erase in the case of electronic files) all copies of the Confidential Information that the Receiving Party does not have a continuing right to use under this Agreement, and the Receiving Party will, upon request, certify to the Disclosing Party its compliance with this sentence.

11.1 By Ciro. Ciro will defend at its expense any suit brought against Customer, and will pay any settlement Ciro makes or approves, or any damages finally awarded in such suit, insofar as such suit is based on a claim by any third party alleging that the Ciro Solution infringes such third party’s patents, copyrights or trade secret rights under applicable laws of any jurisdiction within the United States of America. If any portion of the Ciro Solution becomes, or in Ciro’s opinion is likely to become, the subject of a claim of infringement, Ciro may, at Ciro’s option: (a) procure for Customer the right to continue using the Ciro Solution; (b) replace the Ciro Solution with non-infringing software or services which do not materially impair the functionality of the Ciro Solution; (c) modify the Ciro Solution so that it becomes non-infringing; or (d) terminate this Agreement and refund any unused prepaid Fees for the remainder of the term then in effect, and upon such termination, Customer will immediately cease all use of the Ciro Solution and Documentation.
