You must accept the terms of this Agreement in order to use the Application. By accepting this agreement, taken receipt of a configured Application and using the Application, you acknowledge that you have read this agreement and agree to be bound by the terms and conditions contained herein as well as all policies and guidelines incorporated by reference. Active reserves the right to change or modify any of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement and any policy or guideline incorporated by reference at any time and from time to time in its sole discretion. Any changes or modification will be effective upon posting of the revisions on the Application website. Active will post a notice of such changes or modifications to this Agreement on the Site for thirty (30) days.

Your continued use of the Application following Active’s posting of any changes or modifications will constitute your acceptance of such changes or modifications. If you do not agree to the terms of this Agreement, do not accept this Agreement. If you do not agree to the terms of any modification, do not continue to use the Application and immediately notify Active of your termination of this agreement in the manner described in section 1.2 below.

1. Terms and Payment for the Application

1.1 Term

This agreement will continue for successive periods of twelve months until terminated by you by giving Active not less than three months prior written notice, such notice to expire only at the end of each twelve month period.

You must provide Active with your notice of termination by sending written notification to Active or its designated partner. Upon Active’s receipt of the written notice of cancellation, you will be asked to provide Active with sufficient customer identification information so that Active may properly identify you and your account. Any authenticated notice of termination will be effective upon Active’s receipt thereof.

1.2 Termination Policy

Your termination request must be submitted to Active in the manner described in Section 1.1. Active may terminate this Agreement at any time and for any reason by providing to you written notice of termination. If Active terminates this Agreement, Active shall refund to you, on a pro rata basis, the portion of pre-paid fees attributable to the Application not yet rendered as of the termination date unless otherwise expressly provided herein.

1.3 Liability and Obligations on Termination

Should the Agreement be terminated for any reason, Active will not be liable to you because of such 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 your business, or for any other reason whatsoever flowing from such termination or expiration. Any termination of this Agreement shall not relieve you of any obligations to pay fees and costs accrued prior to the termination date and any other amounts owed by you to Active as provided in this Agreement.

1.4 Charges

You agree to pay for all charges attributable to your use of the Application at the then current Active prices, which shall be exclusive of any applicable taxes. You shall be responsible for the payment of all national and local sales, use, value added, excise, duty and any other taxes assessed with respect to the Application.

Active’s prices shall increase on each renewal date in line with any rise in the Retail Price Index.  This figure will be determined on the date of issue of the renewal reminder which is on or around the first of the month two months prior to renewal date.

1.5 Payment

All charges for the Application must be paid in advance according to the then current price applicable to the Application for which Active will submit an invoice. You agree to pay to Active the amount indicated in each invoice by the due date reflected on the invoice. If you fail to pay any fees and taxes within fifteen (15) days from applicable due date, late charges of the lesser of one and one-half per cent (1.5%) per month or the maximum allowable under applicable law shall also become payable by you to Active. In addition, your failure to fully pay any fees and taxes within fifteen (15) days after the applicable due date will be deemed a material breach of this Agreement, justifying Active’s suspension of its performance of the Application and/or termination of this Agreement. You are responsible for any fees associated with reinstatement of the Application. Any such termination would not relieve you from paying past due fees plus interest. In the event of collection enforcement, you will be liable for any costs associated with such collection, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees, court costs and collection agency fees.
