The fees applicable for Service ("Fees") are available at the Site and as published
within the Service. The price stated for the Service excludes all taxes and charges,
unless stated otherwise. You're responsible for any taxes and for all other charges
(for example, data charges and currency exchange settlements). You will pay the
Fees in the currency Gladinet quoted for your account. Gladinet reserves the right
to change the quoted currency at any time.
In addition to any Fees, you may still incur charges incidental to using the Service,
for example, charges for Internet access, data roaming, and other data transmission
You must be authorized to use the payment method that you enter when you create
a billing account. You authorize Gladinet to charge you for the Service using your
payment method and for any paid feature of the Service that you choose to sign up
for or use while these Terms are in force. We may bill: (a) in advance; (b) at the
time of purchase; (c) shortly after purchase; or (d) on a recurring basis for subscription
Services. Once we have informed you that the Service will be provided indefinitely
or automatically renewed, we may automatically renew your Service and charge you
for any renewal term.
You must keep all information in your billing account current. You can access and
modify your billing account information from your account web portal at www.gladinet.com.
You may change your payment method at any time. If you tell us to stop using your
payment method and we no longer receive payment from you for the paid Service, we
may cancel that Service. Your notice to us will not affect charges we submit to
your billing account before we reasonably could act on your request.
Gladinet reserves the right to change the price of the Service. If there's a specific
length and price for your Service offer, that price will remain in force for that
time. After the offer period ends, your use of the Service will be charged at the
new price. If you don't agree to these changes, you must cancel and stop using the
Service via notification to Gladinet through email at firstname.lastname@example.org no later
than fourteen (14) days prior to the conclusion of your current payment term, whether
monthly, yearly, or otherwise. If you cancel, your Service ends at the end of your
current Service period or, if we bill your account on a period basis, at the end
of the period in which you canceled. If you fail to cancel as required, we will
automatically renew the Service for the same term and will charge you payment information
on file with us commencing on the first day of the renewal term.
If payment is not received by Gladinet on the due date, user's account will be frozen,
inaccessible, and all shared links will be turned off until all outstanding payments
have been processed by Gladinet. Users retain the responsibility for settling all
outstanding balances in a timely manner and maintaining updated billing information.
If not complied with, at the end of 90 days, user's account will be deactivated
and all files will no longer be retrievable.
Unless we notify you otherwise, if you're participating in any trial period offer,
you must cancel the Service by the end of the trial period to avoid incurring new
charges. If you do not cancel your Service and we have told you the Service will
convert to a paid subscription at the end of the trial period, you authorize us
to charge your payment method for the Service.
Except as specifically set forth in this section, all Services are prepaid for the
period selected (monthly, yearly or otherwise) and are non-refundable. This includes
accounts that are renewed.
If you are currently on our free 14-day trial, you may cancel your account, free
of charge, at any time until fourteen (14) days after your account was created.
(The day of creation constitutes the first day of the 14-day trial.)
Except as prohibited by law, we may assess a late charge if you do not pay on time.
You must pay these late charges when we bill you for them. The late charge will
be the lesser of 1 percent of the unpaid amount each month or the maximum rate permitted
by law. We may use a third party to collect past due amounts. You must pay for all
reasonable costs we incur to collect any past due amounts, including reasonable
attorneys' fees and other legal fees and costs. We may suspend or cancel your Service
if you fail to pay in full on time.

LAW EXCEPT FOR ITS CONFLICTS OF LAWS PRINCIPLES. ALL CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING

exclusive agreement between you and Gladinet with respect to the Services, and supersede
and replace any other agreements, terms and conditions applicable to the Services.
These Terms create no third party beneficiary rights. Gladinet’s failure to enforce
a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision is found
unenforceable the remaining provisions of the Agreement will remain in full effect
and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as
possible. You may not assign any of your rights in these Terms, and any such attempt
is void, but Gladinet may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries,
or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services. Gladinet
and you are not legal partners or agents; instead, our relationship is that of independent
