LEARN TO MAKE A PRODUCT, LLC. SUBSCRIBER AGREEMENT
TERMS & CONDITIONS
Services. Subject to the terms and conditions of this subscriber agreement, including any attachments, exhibits, and any additional or supplemental Subscriber Details forms (collectively, the “Agreement”) and any other policies Learn to Make a Product, LLC (hereinafter “LTMAP,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) make available to you from time to time, during the Term (as defined in the Subscriber Details above), LTMAP will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide you the Services described above. These Services are referred to in this Agreement as the “Services.” LTMAP and Subscriber are referred to herein individually as a Party and collectively as the Parties.
Additional Services. LTMAP may, at their sole discretion, offer additional services (“Additional Services”) to Subscribers for purchase at an hourly fee. However, LTMAP will never bill you for additional services without your express written approval. Should you and LTMAP mutually agree to additional Services not contemplated in the Subscriber Details above, we will execute an addendum to this Agreement.
SUBSCRIPTION FEES; PAYMENT
Payments Due Upon Signing. Upon submitting a signed and completed Agreement, you will be obligated to deliver to us payment of your initial subscription fee. Any other fees mutually agreed upon and owed by you shall be paid separately, unless requested at the time of signing this Agreement by LTMAP.
Subscription Fee. During the Term (defined in the Subscriber Details above) of this Agreement, we will process payment for your Subscription Fee and other then-outstanding fees, in advance, monthly. Your billing date corresponds to the day you signed up for the Services. If your billing date is scheduled for a date that does not occur in every month (ie. the 31st), you will be billed on the last day of that month instead. You shall be responsible for having the necessary funds available in your payment account as of your billing date.
Reimbursement of Expenses. Subscriber agrees to reimburse LTMAP for all actual, reasonable, and necessary expenditures, which are directly related to the delivery of the Services, so long as such expenses are identified in the Subscriber Details or requested from Subscriber and approved by Subscriber in advance. Subscriber understands and acknowledges that expense estimates provided by LTMAP are estimated and may differ due to unforeseen circumstances and Subscriber will reimburse LTMAP’s reasonable expenses actually incurred within ten (10) days of LTMAP’s written request for reimbursement, which may alternatively be included on invoices delivered to Subscriber.
Outstanding Fees. When we receive funds from you, we will first apply funds to any balances which are in arrears and to the earliest month due first. Once past balances are satisfied, any remaining portion of the funds will be applied to current fees due. If any payments remain outstanding after we provide notice to you, we may, in our sole discretion, withhold our performance under this Agreement or terminate this Agreement in accordance with the TERMINATION provision below.
Refunds. Except as provided in the TERMINATION provision below, in the event that LTMAP believes they are unable to provide support to Subscriber, you will be notified in writing and a pro-rated refund will be issued for the remaining, unserviced days of the calendar month. In all other cases, refunds will only be issued if both of the following two criteria are met: (1) you have had an active subscription for less than seven (7) calendar days; AND (2) you have not used any support time from LTMAP. For all refunds due to Subscriber’s cancellation, LTMAP reserves the right to deduct a ten percent (10%) kill fee from the total refund to Subscriber for the loss of opportunity suffered by LTMAP.
MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION; TERMINATION
Monthly Subscription. Unless otherwise set forth elsewhere in this Agreement, or in the Subscriber Details form above, the following specific terms shall apply to all Subscribers holding a “Monthly Subscription” with LTMAP:
- Term. The default Term for Monthly Subscription is one (1) calendar month.
- Usage. Your “Usage” of the Services outlined in the Subscriber Details above begins to accrue upon signature of this Agreement by both LTMAP and Subscriber. However, LTMAP will not include the time it takes to onboard you or to answer preliminary questions about the Services toward your Usage. Should your Usage not meet the amount of Support Time agreed to in the Subscriber Details at the end of a calendar month, the remaining Support Time will not carry over to the next month.
- Renewal. This Monthly Subscription will automatically renew at the end of the Term, and shall continue thereafter from month-to-month. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, LTMAP retains the right to increase or decrease your Subscription Fee, or refuse to renew the Agreement entirely by giving you one month’s notice of such increase, decrease, or non-renewal. In the case of a Subscription Fee increase or decrease, you will also be given the option of terminating your Agreement at the end of the month prior to the Subscription increase or decrease coming into effect.
Termination. LTMAP may terminate this Agreement for any reason at any time. You may terminate this Agreement either by cancelling your subscription through the Learn To Make a Product Application (the “App”) or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org at least one business day prior to your next subscription billing date, or by notifying us of your intent to terminate this Agreement if we notify you of a Subscription Fee increase. Once LTMAP receives your notice, you are no longer entitled to any Support Time under this Agreement and all communications between you and LTMAP will be erased after thirty (30) days, including the Slack channel provided to you by LTMAP.
- Unresponsiveness by Client. You understand that if, at any time, you become unresponsive to LTMAP’s requests or communications for more than one (1) month without notice, LTMAP may immediately terminate this Agreement without prior notice to you.
