2. Services: Term and Payment

2.1 Term.

Details pertaining to the “Initial Term” and each service ordered by Customer (the “Service”) are set forth in the Service Agreement entered into in connection with this Agreement. Upon the expiration of the Services Term, this Agreement will be automatically renewed (the “Renewal Term”), unless the Buyer provides GREENQUBE with notice of termination at least 30 days before the end of the Initial Term or Renewal Term, whichever is then applicable.

Buyer must provide GREENQUBE with a notice of termination by sending via certified mail a letter, on Buyer’s official letterhead, to the Billing department indicating a cancellation of service request with sufficient customer identification information so that GREENQUBE may properly identify Buyer and Buyer’s account. Any notice of termination will be effective upon GREENQUBE’s receipt of notice and verification of request with main point of contact on file with GREENQUBE.

2.2 Termination Policy.

If Buyer terminates the Services before the end of the Initial Term or the Renewal Term, whichever is then applicable: GREENQUBE will not refund to Buyer any fees paid in advance of termination, and Buyer will be required to pay 50% of the monthly charge for each month remaining in the term, unless otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement. Buyer must submit Buyer’s termination request to GREENQUBE in the manner described in Section 2.1. GREENQUBE may terminate this Agreement at any time and for any reason by providing to Buyer 30 days’ prior written notice of termination. If GREENQUBE terminates this Agreement due to Buyer’s violation of the GREENQUBE Universal Terms of Service or ANY provision of this agreement, whichever is then applicable: GREENQUBE will not refund to Buyer any fees paid in advance of termination, and Buyer will be required to pay 100% of the monthly charge for each month remaining in the term, unless otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement.

2.3 Liability and Obligations on Termination.

If the Agreement expires or is terminated for any reason, GREENQUBE is not liable to Buyer because of the expiration or termination for compensation, reimbursement or damages on account of the loss of prospective profits, anticipated sales, goodwill or on account of expenditures, investments, leases or commitments in connection with Buyer’s business, or for any other reason whatsoever flowing from the termination or expiration. If Buyer terminates this Agreement, GREENQUBE will not relieve Buyer of any obligations to pay fees and costs accrued before the termination date or any other amounts Buyer owes to GREENQUBE under this Agreement. GreenQube will not interfere with Customer's reasonable efforts to retrieve Customer's data from GreenQube's servers.

2.4 Charges.

Buyer will pay all charges for Buyer’s use of the Services at the then current GREENQUBE prices, which will be exclusive of any applicable taxes. Buyer is responsible for paying all federal, state, and local sales, use, value added, excise, duty and any other taxes assessed with respect to the Services, other than taxes based on GREENQUBE’s net income.

2.5 Payment.

Buyer will pay all charges for Services in advance according to the then current price for the Services. When registering for Services, Buyer must choose to pay for the Services either by credit card or upon Buyer’s receipt of an invoice. If Buyer chooses to pay by credit card when registering for Services, Buyer authorizes GREENQUBE to charge Buyer’s credit or debit card to pay for any charges that may apply to Buyer’s account. Buyer must notify GREENQUBE of any changes to Buyer’s card account (including, applicable account number or cancellation or expiration of the account), Buyer’s billing address, or any information that may prohibit GREENQUBE from charging Buyer’s account. If Buyer chooses to be invoiced for Services, GREENQUBE will send an invoice to Buyer for the Services for the period for which Buyer has registered for the Services. GREENQUBE may also send periodic invoices to Buyer for any applicable Supplemental Charges associated with Buyer’s use of the Services. Buyer will pay to GREENQUBE the amount indicated in each invoice by the due date reflected on the invoice. If Buyer fail to pay any fees and taxes within 10 days from the applicable due date for credit card or invoice payments, GREENQUBE will assess late charges equal to the lesser of 1.5% per month or the maximum allowable under applicable law. Buyer’s failure to fully pay any fees and taxes within 30 days after the applicable due date is a material breach of this Agreement, justifying GREENQUBE in suspending its performance, terminating this Agreement, and forwarding the account to a collections agency. If GREENQUBE terminates for Buyer’s material breach, Buyer must still pay all costs due as described in Section 2.2. The Buyer is responsible for any costs GREENQUBE incurs in enforcing collection, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs and collection agency fees (except where prohibited by law). If Buyer reinstates Services, Buyer must pay any fees associated with reinstating Services.
