6. FEES AND PAYMENT FOR PURCHASED SERVICES
6.1. Fees. You will pay all fees in USA Dollar currency or as specified in Order Forms. Except as otherwise specified herein or in an Order Form, (i) fees are based on Services and Content purchased and not actual usage, (ii) payment obligations are non-cancelable and fees paid are non-refundable, and (iii) quantities purchased cannot be decreased during the relevant subscription term.
6.2. Invoicing and Payment. You will provide Us with valid and updated credit card information, or with a valid purchase order or alternative document reasonably acceptable to Us. If You provide credit card information to Us, You authorize Us to charge such credit card for all Purchased Services listed in the Order Form for the initial subscription term and any renewal subscription term(s) as set forth in Section 12.2 (Term of Purchased Subscriptions). Such charges shall be made in advance, either annually or in accordance with any different billing frequency stated in the applicable Order Form. If the Order Form specifies that payment will be by a method other than a credit card, We will invoice You in advance and otherwise in accordance with the relevant Order Form. Unless otherwise stated in the Order Form, invoiced charges are due net 30 days from the invoice date. You are responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information to Us and notifying Us of any changes to such information. We may, in our sole and absolute discretion, elect not to send You an invoice in the event that amounts then due are small. We will have the right to include any skipped amount in any subsequent invoice.
6.3. Overdue Charges. If any invoiced amount is not received by Us by the due date, then without limiting Our rights or remedies, (a) those charges may accrue late interest at the rate of 1.5% of the outstanding balance per each whole or partial calendar month that payments are late, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, and/or (b) We may condition future subscription renewals and Order Forms on payment terms shorter than those specified in Section 6.2 (Invoicing and Payment).
6.4. Suspension of Service and Acceleration. If any amount owing by You under this or any other agreement for Our services is 30 or more days overdue (or 10 or more days overdue in the case of amounts You have authorized Us to charge to Your credit card), We may, without limiting Our other rights and remedies, accelerate Your unpaid fee obligations under such agreements so that all such obligations become immediately due and payable, and suspend Our services to You until such amounts are paid in full. We will give You at least 10 days' prior notice that Your account is overdue, in accordance with Section 13.2 (Manner of Giving Notice), before suspending services to You. Such suspension will not relieve You from the obligation to pay amounts due and to pay for the services while You are under such suspension.
6.5. Payment Disputes. We will not exercise Our rights under Section 6.3 (Overdue Charges) or 6.4 (Suspension of Service and Acceleration) above if You are disputing the applicable charges reasonably and in good faith and are cooperating diligently to resolve the dispute. If You in good faith dispute any charges, You shall (a) timely pay all undisputed charges, and (b) on or before the Due Date, give Us written notice of the disputed amount(s) and reason(s) therefore. A "Disputed" amount is one for which You have given Us a proper written notice within 60 days following the invoice date, adequately supported by a bona fide explanation and documentation thereof. We shall review any such notice reasonably promptly. Any invoiced amount not disputed by You within 60 days following the invoice date is deemed to be correct and binding on You. We may make appropriate corrections to issued invoices at any time. You must make any claim regarding an overpayment within 60 days following the date of overpayment.
You shall pay all expenses incurred by Us in exercising any of our rights under this Agreement, or, with respect to a Payment Default, under applicable law. Such expenses shall include, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' and experts' fees, litigation costs and fees of any collection agency retained by Us.
6.6. Taxes. Our fees do not include any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including, for example, value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes, assessable by any jurisdiction whatsoever (collectively, "Taxes"). You are responsible for paying all Taxes associated with Your purchases hereunder. If We have the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which You are responsible under this Section 6.6, We will invoice You and You will pay that amount unless You provide Us with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. For clarity, We are solely responsible for taxes assessable against Us based on Our income, property and employees.
6.7. Future Functionality. You agree that Your purchases are not contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or features, or dependent on any oral or written public comments made by Us regarding future functionality or features.
