3 Fees and Payments
3.1 Fees for Services
You agree to pay DRVR any fees for each Service you purchase or use, in accordance with the pricing and payment terms presented to you for those Services in the Service Order. Except as indicated in this Agreement or required by law, fees paid by you are not refundable.
Services are billed on a subscription basis (Subscription) and are billed in advance on a recurring, periodic basis (called a billing cycle). The billing cycle for your Subscription is outlined in the Service Order. Your Subscription for any Services will automatically renew at the end of each billing cycle unless you cancel the auto-renewal by contacting our Sales team by email at firstname.lastname@example.org The initial Subscription Term together with any subsequent Renewal Periods shall constitute the Subscription Term.
Devices are billed by and payable to the DRVR Device Partner in your country, within the terms detailed and accepted by you in your device Purchase Order. The title of ownership for devices does not transfer from the DRVR Device Partner until full payment of agreed device costs and associated charges (including but not limited to import duties, taxes and delivery fees) are received by the DRVR Device Partner.
3.4 Payment methods
You authorize us to charge for fees using the payment method indicated in the Service Order. Unless otherwise agreed, payments for invoices are due within the terms agreed on the service order, or within 7 days from invoice date if not otherwise noted. If you elect to pay by credit card, debit card, or any other billing method that supports automatic recurring payments, we will initially attempt to charge you using that billing method when payment is due, and payments will be considered overdue if payment is not received within 14 days of that due date. You agree to keep your billing and billing contact information current and accurate.
Overdue payments may incur interest at the rate of 2.5% per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less) on the amount overdue. You will be responsible for all reasonable expenses (including legal fees) incurred by DRVR in collecting such overdue amounts, except where:
- the overdue amounts are due to DRVR’s billing inaccuracies; or
- you have sought to resolve a dispute using the dispute resolution process in clause 13.1 and that process is still active.
Unless stated otherwise in the Service Order, all fees for Services exclude sales tax, commercial tax, GST, VAT, or other similar local consumption taxes. Except for any corporate income taxes payable by DRVR, you are responsible for all other taxes or duties related to the sale of Services under this Agreement, including any penalties or interest. If DRVR is required to collect or pay any taxes on your behalf, we will invoice you for those taxes unless you provide us with a valid evidence that no tax should be invoiced.
3.7 Price changes
DRVR may change the fees charged for Services at any time. For Subscription Services, the change will only become effective at the end of your current contracted subscription term, or the current billing cycle of your ongoing renewed subscription. DRVR will provide you with reasonable prior written notice of any changes to fees before the changes go into effect.
