  1. Selling Through Socialriver.ca

Some of our Services and Materials may offer you the opportunity to sell or purchase goods and services through sites hosted or designed by Socialriver.ca as well as our partners and affiliates sites (such goods and services, “Commercial Products”). We, our partners, and affiliates are merely providing the platform for buyers and sellers to negotiate and complete transactions for these Commercial Products. When a buyer purchases Commercial Products, payments will be processed through a third party payment service provider. Payment services are governed solely by the third party provider’s terms of service and privacy policy. We are not responsible for the actions of these third party service providers. In addition to the other rules and requirements described in this Agreement, you must follow the rules listed below when offering, selling or purchasing.

Commercial Products.

You may not offer or sell illegal or potentially illegal Commercial Products, including those that are counterfeited, stolen or fraudulent. Commercial Products sold using the Services must comply with all applicable laws.

Without limiting anything else in this Agreement, we may immediately remove Content related to the offer or sale of Commercial Products in violation of this Agreement. If you sell a Commercial Product using our Services, then you must, upon our request, (1) use commercially reasonable efforts to stop the delivery of the Commercial Products to the buyer, or (2) pay a refund for such Commercial Products to the buyer.

  1. Payment Information

You agree to supply appropriate payment for the services received from Socialriver.ca, in advance of the time period during which such services are provided. Subject to all applicable laws, rules, and regulations, all payments will apply to the oldest invoice(s) in your billing account. You agree that until and unless you notify Socialriver.ca of your desire to cancel any or all services received, those services will be billed on a recurring basis.

Should such a card in someone else’s name result in a “chargeback” (withdrawal, cancellation or refund) due to he or she contacting their bank, you will be responsible for repaying any such funds that have been removed. It is your responsibility to contact the cardholder and ask him or her to negate the chargeback request by contacting his or her bank. Furthermore, you agree that any chargebacks cannot exceed 30 days back from the date of request to your bank or financial service.

As a client of Socialriver.ca, it is your responsibility to ensure that your payment information is up to date, and that all invoices are paid on time. You agree that until and unless you notify Socialriver.ca of your desire to cancel any or all services received, those services will be billed on a recurring basis, unless otherwise stated in writing by Socialriver.ca. Socialriver.ca reserves the right to bill your credit card or billing information on file with us. Socialriver.ca provides a 10 day grace period from the time the invoice is generated and when it must be paid. Any invoice that is outstanding for 10 days and not paid will result in a suspension of your account, website and any other associated services including but not limited to email and hosting until account balance has been paid in full. Access to the account will not be restored until payment has been received. Customer agrees to pay Socialriver.ca’s reasonable reinstatement fee following a suspension of service for non-payment, and to pay Socialriver.ca’s reasonable costs of collection of overdue amounts, including collection agency fees, attorney fees and court costs.

If you purchase any Services that we offer for a Fee, you agree to allow Socialriver.ca, or our third party service providers to store your payment card information. You expressly agree that we or third parties that you sign up for through our services or by way of referral are authorized to charge you (1) a monthly Fee for any applicable Services billed on a monthly basis, (2) any other Fees for Services you may purchase, and (3) any applicable taxes in connection with your use of the Services to the payment card you provide and to reimburse us for all collection costs and interest for any overdue amounts. If the payment card you provide expires and you do not provide new payment card information or cancel your account, you authorize us to continue billing you and you agree to remain responsible for any uncollected Fees.

  1. Fee Increases

Socialriver.ca may increase its fees for services effective the first day of a Renewal Term by giving notice to Customer of the new fees at least thirty (30) days prior to the beginning of the Renewal Term, and if Customer does not give a notice of non-renewal as provided in Section 10 above, the Customer shall be deemed to have accepted the new fee for that Renewal Term and any subsequent Renewal Terms (unless the fees are increased in the same manner for a subsequent Renewal Term).

  1. Cancellation of Services

Cancellations can be initiated by contacting Socialriver.ca via phone or email and explicitly requesting a cancellation of services. In order to reduce the likelihood of mistakes or fraudulent/malicious requests, you must fill out a Cancellation Request Form to complete your cancellation request. Service cancellation will be completed within 1 (one) business day upon receipt of your Cancellation Request Form. Upon your request to cancel, you understand and agree that cancellation may render all files, emails, and data associated with the account as potentially unrecoverable. All purchases are final and no refunds will be available or issued with the exception of billing mistakes such as double billing or wrong plan implementation.

Failure or inability to pay the monthly fee associated with your website and management service is not an indication of cancellation nor will it result in a cancellation of your subscription. Failure or inability to pay the monthly fee for any reason will result in a series automated emails being sent to the contact email address that we have on file for your account in an effort to make you aware of your failure to pay. One Billing Issue Notification email will be sent to you daily for 7 consecutive days with a website hyperlink that will allow you to correct or update your billing information. Failure to correct or update your billing information within this 10 day grace period will result in a suspension of all your services with Socialriver.ca including the taking down of your website and the cessation of any hosted domain name-based email services that we manage via our email servers. Our billing system will continue trying to process the outstanding payment with the credit card that we have on file for your account until you update your billing information, contact us to update your billing information via phone, or contact us to cancel your subscription to our services. If you update your credit card information via the billing details hyperlink, the billing system will attempt to check and verify your new card details immediately upon submission. If the card details are correct and accurate, the system will process the payment at that time.
