TERMS OF SERVICE
Last updated: July 24, 2014
To use the services available on the Site, you must complete the membership registration form. You agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Site's registration form ("User Data") and (b) maintain and promptly update the User Data to keep it accurate and current. You agree that Teamitup may use your User Data to provide services on the Site for which you have expressed interest. If you provide any information that is inaccurate or not current, or PIM has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is inaccurate or not current, PIM has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Site. In consideration of your use of the Site, you represent that you are of legal age to form a binding contract and are not a person barred from receiving services under the laws of any applicable jurisdiction.
If you choose to become a Premium member of Teamitup, you must designate and provide information about your preferred payment method (e.g., credit card, online payment service or any other payment method made available by PIM) ("Payment Method"). You may switch to a different Payment Method or update your information by visiting the “Edit Account” page or by contacting us by email at [email protected] You will immediately be charged for your membership fees after you click "Submit" on the payment page and your account will be activated to "Teamitup Premium Member" status. You agree to pay all membership fees and other charges incurred in connection with your username and password for your Teamitup account.
Fees and Renewals
You may elect to pay fees for premium membership on a monthly or annual basis, or once for a lifetime membership. All membership fees are payable in advance. Membership fees will be billed automatically to the Payment Method at the start of the monthly or annual period, or lifetime period, as applicable, and will auto-renew until your membership is terminated. The renewal membership fees will be the same as the initial charges unless you are otherwise notified in advance. You authorize Teamitup to charge your Payment Method for the appropriate membership charges and fees and for any other purchases you elect to make via the Site. Teamitup reserves the right to increase membership fees or to institute new fees at any time upon reasonable notice posted in advance on this Site. Members changing from monthly to annual memberships will have the annual rates take effect immediately. Members changing from monthly or annually to lifetime memberships will be charged once immediately. If you upgrade your membership or add new categories of service to your account, such changes may result in a new billing date effective upon the date you elect such upgrade or addition. ALL PURCHASES ARE FINAL AND NO REFUND WILL BE GIVEN FOR UNUSED PORTIONS OF YOUR INITIAL OR ANY RENEWAL MEMBERSHIP PERIOD.
We may offer trials of the Premium Service for a specified period without payment (a “Trial”). Teamitup reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to determine your eligibility for a Trial, and to withdraw or to modify a Trial at any time without prior notice and with no liability.
For some Trials, we’ll require you to provide your payment details to start the Trial. At the end of such Trials, we may automatically start to charge you for the Premium Service on the first day following the end of the Trial, on a recurring monthly basis. By providing your payment details in conjunction with the Trial, you agree to this charge. If you do not want this charge, you must change your Subscription to the Free Service through your Teamitup account’s settings before the end of the Trial.
You may cancel your premium membership by visiting the "Edit Account" page and selecting "Downgrade" or by contacting us by email at [email protected] The cancellation of a membership will go into effect at the end of your current billing cycle, and you will have the same level of access to the Site through the remainder of such billing cycle. When your Premium membership ends, your account will enter "Teamitup Free" mode. No refunds or credits will be provided by Teamitup upon cancellation. You can renew your subscription at anytime without opening a new account, provided that additional fees may apply if you decide to upgrade to a premium membership at a later date. We reserve the right to issue refunds or credits at our sole discretion. If we issue a refund or credit, we are under no obligation to issue the same or similar refund in the future.
