4.1. Talkable makes these Services available to You in successive periods, each of which shall constitute a Subscription Period. The initial Subscription Period commences on the Subscription Start Date either referenced in an initial Order Form for enterprise customers or if you self-registered then at the end of the registered free trial and in the case of self-registration will renew for successive one (1) month periods automatically, unless cancelled or terminated as provided herein.
4.2. You shall pay all fees specified in all Order Forms or associated with a free trial. Except as otherwise specified herein or in an Order Form, (a) fees are based on Services made available to You and not Your actual usage or results, and (b) Your payment obligations are non-cancelable and fees paid are non-refundable, except as expressly permitted by either this Agreement or an Order Form. Subscription Fees are generally based on monthly periods and Subscription Start Dates started during a monthly period will have a corresponding Subscription Start Date and will be billed monthly at the beginning of each recurring Billing Period on the same date.
4.3. If the Order Form specifies that payment will be made by a credit card, You will provide Talkable with valid and updated credit card information, or with a valid purchase order or alternative documentation that is reasonable acceptable to Us. If You provide credit card information to Us, You authorize Us to charge such credit card for all Services listed in the Order Form for the initial Billing Period and any renewal subscription term(s). Such charges shall be made in advance, 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 bill and contact information to Us and notifying Us of any changes to such information.

4.5. The Subscription Fees for each Billing Period will be invoiced by Talkable in advance of the commencement of that Billing Period as specified above and in the corresponding Order Form.
4.6. All fees due Talkable pursuant to these Service Terms are quoted and payable in United States dollars. Upon receipt of invoices, You will pay all undisputed fee amounts to Talkable for Services. If the Order Form specifies that payment will be made by electronic funds transfer, all payments will be made via electronic funds transfer by You within thirty (30) days of the receipt of an undisputed invoice. The making of any payment(s) by You, or the receipt of Services by You does not constitute acceptance of the Services. You may withhold payments or portions thereof that You dispute in good faith, and, in such an event, the parties will use their good faith and diligent efforts to promptly resolve disputes.
4.7. If You require a purchase order to be issued prior to Your payment of any invoiced fees, You will provide Talkable with the signed purchase order upon Your execution of these Service Terms and upon Your execution of each subsequent Order Form. Notwithstanding any language to the contrary therein, no terms or conditions stated in Your purchase order will be incorporated into, form any part of, or amend or modify this Agreement and all such terms or conditions will be null and void.
4.8. If any undisputed payment due Talkable pursuant to this Agreement is not received by the due date and you have not provided written notice of the dispute to Talkable within thirty (30) days after receipt of the invoice, then, at Talkable's discretion, such amount may accrue late interest at the rate of one and one-half percent (1.5%) of the outstanding balance per month, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, from the date such payment was due until the date paid. However, Talkable will not exercise its rights pursuant to this section if the unpaid amounts are under reasonable and good-faith dispute and You are cooperating diligently to resolve the dispute.
4.9. Talkable's fees do not include any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including, but not limited to, value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes, assessable by any local, state, provincial, federal or foreign jurisdiction (collectively, "Taxes"). You are responsible for paying all Taxes associated with the goods and services made available to You by Talkable, other than taxes assessable against Talkable based on its income, property and employees. If Talkable incurs a legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which You are responsible, the appropriate amount will be invoiced to and paid by You, unless You provide Talkable with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority.

If You are an enterprise customer that has registered for the Services pursuant to an executed Order Form, this Agreement commences on the Effective Date and (unless otherwise indicated in the Order Form) shall continue for one year from the Effective Date ("Initial Term") unless terminated sooner as provided herein. Thereafter, the Agreement will automatically renew for successive one (1) year periods (each an "Additional Term" and, together with the Initial Term, the "Term") unless a party notifies the other party in writing at least thirty (30) days prior to the end of any Term of such party's intention to terminate this Agreement.
5.4. In no event will any non-renewal or termination of this Agreement relieve You of the obligation to pay undisputed fees due to Talkable pursuant to this Agreement prior to the effective date of such non-renewal or termination.
5.5. Each party shall have the right to terminate this Agreement immediately upon written notice delivered to the other party if, at any time: (a) the other party is in material breach of any term, condition or covenant of this Agreement and fails to cure such breach within thirty (30) days of written notice thereof; or (b) the other party (i) becomes insolvent; (ii) admits in writing its insolvency or inability to pay its debts or perform its obligations as they mature; or (iii) makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors.

In such event, you will have the opportunity to terminate this Agreement, upon written notice to Talkable.
