Subscription Term, Fees & Payment
Subscription Term and Renewals Unless otherwise specified in the applicable
order form, each subscription term will automatically renew for additional twelve-month periods
at the number of then-current seats, unless written notice of termination is given at least
sixty (60) days prior to the contract renewal date. Any changes to the current subscription
term, including seat count, must be communicated in writing at least sixty (60) days before
the contract renewal date. By continuing to use the Services after the renewal date, you confirm
your acceptance of the renewed subscription and any applicable charges. The customer waives any
right to receive notice prior to any such automatic renewal. In the context of subscription renewal,
we retain the discretion to modify subscription fees without requiring prior customer notification.
Fees and Payment All fees are as set forth in the applicable order form and will
be paid by the customer within thirty (30) days of invoice, unless (a)the customer is paying via
Credit Card (as defined below) or (b) otherwise specified in the applicable order form. All fees
are non-refundable. The customer is responsible for paying all taxes, and all taxes are excluded
from any fees set forth in the applicable order form. If the customer is required by law to withhold
any taxes from the customer's payment, the fees payable by the customer will be increased as
necessary so that, after making any required withholdings, GoLinks receives and retains (free from
any liability for payment of taxes) an amount equal to the amount it would have received had no
such withholdings been made. Any late payments will be subject to a service charge equal to 1.5%
per month of the amount due or the maximum amount allowed by law, whichever is less.

card or other payment card ("Credit Card"), the following terms apply:

agreeing to purchase any services, the customer hereby authorizes GoLinks (or its designee)
to automatically charge the customer's Credit Card on the same date of each calendar month
(or the closest prior date, if there are fewer days in a particular month) during the
subscription term for all fees accrued as of that date (if any) in accordance with the
applicable order form. The customer acknowledges and agrees that the amount billed and
charged each billing period may vary depending on the customer's use of the services.
Foreign Transaction Fees Customer acknowledges that for certain Credit Cards,
the issuer of the customer's Credit Card may charge a foreign transaction fee or other charges.
Invalid Payment If a payment is not successfully settled due to expiration of
a Credit Card, insufficient funds, or otherwise, Customer remains responsible for any amounts not
remitted to GoLinks and GoLinks may, in its sole discretion, either (i) invoice the customer
directly for the deficient amount, (ii) continue billing the Credit Card once it has been updated
by the customer (if applicable) or (iii) terminate this agreement.
Changing Credit Card Information The customer may change Credit Card information at
any time via the "Settings" page on the Dashboard.
Termination of Recurring Billing In addition to any termination rights set forth in
this agreement, the customer may terminate the subscription term by sending GoLinks notice of
non-renewal to in accordance with Subscription Term and Renewals or, if customer's subscription
term is on a monthly basis (or if otherwise permitted by GoLinks), by terminating via the "Settings"
page on the dashboard, with termination effective at the end of the current subscription term.
Payment of Outstanding Fees Upon any termination or expiration of the subscription term,
GoLinks will charge the customer's Credit Card (or invoice the customer directly) for any outstanding fees
for the customer's use of the services during the subscription term, after which GoLinks will not charge
the customer's Credit Card for any additional fees.

in addition to any of its other rights or remedies (including, but not limited to, any termination rights
set forth herein), GoLinks reserves the right to suspend the customer's access to the applicable Service
(and any related services) without liability to the customer until such amounts are paid in full. GoLinks
