YourBase encourages Customer to check the YourBase website periodically for current pricing information. YourBase may change the fees for any feature of the YourBase Services, including additional fees or charges, if YourBase gives Customer advance notice of changes before they apply. YourBase at its sole discretion, may make promotional offers with different features and different pricing to any of YourBase’s customers. These promotional offers, unless made to Customer, will not apply to Customer or these Terms. Other than net income taxes imposed on YourBase, Customer will bear all taxes, duties, and other governmental charges (collectively, “taxes”) resulting from these Terms.
4.3 Authorization. Customer authorizes YourBase to charge all sums for the orders that Customer makes and any level of service Customer selects as described in these Terms or published by YourBase, including all applicable taxes, to the payment method specified in Customer’s account or otherwise provided to YourBase. If Customer pays any fees with a credit card, YourBase may seek pre-authorization of Customer’s credit card account prior to Customer’s purchase to verify that the credit card is valid and has the necessary funds or credit available to cover Customer’s purchase. YourBase may use one or more third parties to process payments for orders, such as Stripe (“Payment Processors”). Payment Processors may require Customer to agree to their own terms and conditions. YourBase is not liable for any problems or disputes that Customer may have with any Payment Processor. Any authorization to process payments in this Section 4 granted by Customer to YourBase will also be considered an authorization for the Payment Processor to process payments.
4.4 Subscription Service. The YourBase Services may include automatically recurring payments for periodic charges (“Subscription Service”). If Customer activates a Subscription Service, Customer authorizes YourBase to periodically charge, on a going-forward basis and until cancellation of either the recurring payments or Customer’s account, all accrued sums on or before the payment due date for the accrued sums. The “Subscription Billing Date” is the date when Customer first purchases a subscription to the YourBase Services. For information on the “Subscription Fee”, please see the YourBase website. Customer’s account will be charged automatically on the Subscription Billing Date all applicable fees and taxes for the next subscription period. The subscription will continue unless and until Customer cancels the subscription or YourBase terminates it. Customer must cancel any subscription before it renews in order to avoid billing of the next periodic Subscription Fee to Customer’s account.

Customer may cancel the Subscription Service by contacting YourBase at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
4.5 Delinquent Accounts.

5.2 Termination for Convenience. Either party may terminate these Terms for any reason or for no reason by giving the other party written notice. If Customer terminates under this Section 5.2, Customer will not be entitled to a refund of any prepaid fees. If YourBase terminates under this Section 5.2, YourBase will issue to Customer a pro-rata refund of prepaid fees for the period of time for which Customer will not receive access to the YourBase Services.
5.3 Termination for Material Breach. Either party may terminate these Terms if the other party does not cure its material breach of these Terms within 30 days of receiving written notice of the material breach from the non-breaching party. Termination in accordance with this Section 5.3 will take effect when the breaching party receives written notice of termination from the non-breaching party, which notice must not be delivered until the breaching party has failed to cure its material breach during the 30-day cure period. If Customer fails to timely pay any fees, YourBase may, without limitation to any of its other rights or remedies, suspend performance of the YourBase Services until it receives all amounts due.

11.2 Cap on Liability. EXCEPT FOR A PARTY’S INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL EITHER PARTY’S TOTAL LIABILITY OF ALL KINDS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS OR THE YOURBASE SERVICES (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO WARRANTY CLAIMS), REGARDLESS OF THE FORUM AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER ANY ACTION OR CLAIM IS BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE, EXCEED THE GREATER OF: (a) THE TOTAL AMOUNT PAID BY CUSTOMER TO YOURBASE DURING THE 6 MONTHS IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE CLAIM (DETERMINED AS OF THE DATE OF ANY FINAL JUDGMENT IN AN ACTION); OR (b) $100.
11.3 Independent Allocations of Risk. EACH PROVISION OF THESE TERMS THAT PROVIDES FOR A LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES, OR EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES IS TO ALLOCATE THE RISKS OF THESE TERMS BETWEEN THE PARTIES. THIS ALLOCATION IS REFLECTED IN THE PRICING OFFERED BY YOURBASE TO CUSTOMER AND IS AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN THE PARTIES. EACH OF THESE PROVISIONS IS SEVERABLE AND INDEPENDENT OF ALL OTHER PROVISIONS OF THESE TERMS. THE LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION 11 WILL APPLY NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY IN THESE TERMS.
12.1 Relationship. YourBase will be and act as an independent contractor (and not as the agent or representative of Customer) in the performance of these Terms.
12.2 Assignability. Neither these Terms nor any rights under these Terms may be assigned or otherwise transferred by Customer, in whole or in part, whether voluntarily or by operation of law, without the prior written consent of YourBase. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will be binding upon and will inure to the benefit of the parties and their respective successors and assigns. Any assignment in violation of the foregoing will be null and void.
12.3 Subcontractors. YourBase may utilize a subcontractor or other third party to perform its duties under these Terms so long as YourBase remains responsible for all of its obligations under these Terms.
12.4 Consent to Electronic Communications. By using the YourBase Services, Customer consents to receiving certain electronic communications from YourBase. Customer agrees that any notices, agreements, disclosures, or other communications that YourBase sends to Customer electronically will satisfy any legal communication requirements, including that those communications be in writing.
12.5 Force Majeure. Neither party will be liable for, or be considered to be in breach of or default under these Terms on account of, any delay or failure to perform as required by these Terms as a result of any cause or condition beyond its reasonable control, so long as that party uses all commercially reasonable efforts to avoid or remove the causes of non-performance.
12.6 Governing Law. These Terms will be interpreted, construed, and enforced in all respects in accordance with the local laws of the State of Washington, without reference to its choice of law rules and not including the provisions of the 1980 U.N. Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. Each party hereby irrevocably consents to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the federal, state, and local courts in King County, Washington for resolution of any lawsuit or court proceeding permitted under these Terms.
12.7 Arbitration. Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms, or any breach of these Terms, will be determined by binding arbitration administered by, and in accordance with the rules of, the American Arbitration Association. Any arbitration will be conducted by three arbitrators (with one arbitrator chosen by each of the parties and the third appointed by the other two arbitrators) in King County, Washington and will be conducted (and the award rendered) in English. The award rendered by the arbitrators will be final and binding on the parties, and the arbitral judgment may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section 12.7 prevents either party from applying to a court of competent jurisdiction for equitable or injunctive relief.
12.8 Waiver. The waiver by either party of any breach of any provision of these Terms does not waive any other breach. The failure of any party to insist on strict performance of any covenant or obligation in accordance with these Terms will not be a waiver of such party’s right to demand strict compliance in the future, nor will the same be construed as a novation of these Terms.
12.9 Severability. If any part of these Terms is found to be illegal, unenforceable, or invalid, the remaining portions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect. If any material limitation or restriction on the use of the YourBase Services under these Terms is found to be illegal, unenforceable, or invalid, Customer’s right to use the YourBase Services will immediately terminate.
