8. PAYMENT TERMS
8.1 Recurring Charges.
By signing up for an account, Customer authorizes PlainVanilla to charge Customer’s payment method on a recurring basis without an invoice. Customer expressly authorizes PlainVanilla to charge its payment method (such as a credit card) for the applicable subscription charges and any and all applicable taxes and fees. Such authorization is effective until the end of the Subscription Term and any applicable Renewal Term, or until Customer cancels all of its subscriptions.
If Customer exceeds their subscription plan’s usage limits, Customer will be automatically upgraded into the next highest Subscription Plan and Customer expressly acknowledges and agrees that it will pay for the upgraded Subscription Plan. All upgrade fees and charges are non-refundable, even if Customer did not use the full usage allotment of the applicable Subscription Plan.
PlainVanilla’s fees are exclusive of all taxes, and Customer must pay any applicable sales, use, VAT, GST, excise, withholding, or similar taxes or levies, whether domestic or foreign, other than taxes based on the income of PlainVanilla. Customer will not deduct any applicable taxes from the payments to PlainVanilla, except as required by law. If such deduction is required by law, Customer will increase the amount payable as necessary so that after making all required deductions and withholdings, PlainVanilla receives and retains (free from any such liabilities) an amount equal to the amount it would have received had no such deductions and/or withholdings been required.
8.3 Purchase Orders.
Customer agrees that it will pay all amounts owed, including recurring charges, without requiring any purchase orders or reference(s) to purchase order numbers. If a purchase order is required, then Customer will promptly notify PlainVanilla at least thirty (30) days prior to such requirement and the parties will cooperate in good faith in implementing a billing process that includes references such purchase order numbers. Customer agrees that any purchase orders are for administrative purposes only and that any non-administrative terms (including, but not limited to legal, security, privacy, or finance
terms) contained in its purchase order(s) do not apply to its purchase or use of PlainVanilla services.
8.4 No Refunds.
Subscription and usage or overage fees (and any other fees associated with the services, including higher subscription fees for upgrades) are non-refundable and non-creditable, except where required by law. PlainVanilla subscriptions may be cancelled, and such cancellations take effect at the end of your then-current subscription term. If You don’t pay for your subscription(s) on time, we reserve the right to suspend You.
8.5 Late Fees Collection Costs.
Late payments may be subject to a service charge equal to the lesser of 1.0% per month of the amount due or the maximum amount allowed by law. Amounts due to PlainVanilla may not be withheld of offset by You against amounts due for any reason.
9. TERM AND TERMINATION
These Terms are effective until all Subscription Terms for the PlainVanilla Service have expired or are terminated as expressly permitted herein.
9.2 Subscription Term and Renewals.
Customer agrees to pay applicable fees for the entire Subscription Term. Customer cannot cancel or terminate a Subscription Term except as expressly permitted by Section 9.4 (Termination for Cause). The subscription starts when Customer first obtains access to the PlainVanilla Service. Each Subscription Term will automatically renew for additional successive twelve (12) month periods unless either party gives written notice of non-renewal at least thirty (30) days before the end of the then-current Subscription Term.
9.3 Suspension of Service.
PlainVanilla may suspend Customer’s access to the PlainVanilla Services if Customer’s account is overdue. PlainVanilla may also suspend Customer’s access to the PlainVanilla Service or remove Customer Data if it determines that: (a) Customer has breached any portion of the Acceptable Use Policy, or (b) suspension is necessary to prevent harm or liability to other customers or third parties, or to preserve the security, stability, availability or integrity of the PlainVanilla Service. PlainVanilla will have no liability for taking action as permitted above. For the avoidance of doubt, Customer will remain responsible for payment of fees during any suspension period under this Section 9.3. However, unless these Terms have been terminated, PlainVanilla will cooperate with Customer to promptly
restore access to the PlainVanilla Service once we verify that Customer has resolved the condition requiring suspension.
9.4 Termination for Cause.

Upon any expiration or termination of these Terms: (i) Customer’s license rights terminate and it must promptly: (a) stop use of the PlainVanilla Service; (b) delete (or, at PlainVanilla’s request, return) any and all copies of any PlainVanilla Confidential Information in Customer’s possession, custody, or control; and (ii) Customer’s right to access any Customer Data in the applicable PlainVanilla Service will cease and PlainVanilla may delete the Customer Data at any time after 30 days from the date of termination.

Confidential Information also includes the fact of the parties’ interest in the Purpose and the existence or terms of this Agreement.
11.2 Confidentiality Obligation.
The Receiving Party shall take reasonable security precautions, which security precautions are at least as great as the precautions it takes to protect its own confidential information but no less than reasonable care, to safely maintain, protect and keep confidential the Confidential Information disclosed by or on behalf of Disclosing Party; and shall use, reproduce, summarize and/or distribute Confidential Information disclosed by or on behalf of Disclosing Party solely in connection with this Agreement or the provision or use of the PlainVanilla Service.

Each Party recognizes that the unauthorized use or disclosure by the Receiving Party of any Confidential Information could cause irreparable harm to
the Disclosing Party, the extent of which would be difficult and impracticable to assess, and that money damages alone would not be an adequate remedy for such breach.
