All users are entitled to a limited free trial on the Business plan. At the end of the trial, you will be automatically subscribed to the Business plan and charged according to its terms, unless you choose a different paid plan or elect to cancel. If you choose a plan before the end of the trial, you forgo the remaining days of the trial and your paid subscription will begin immediately.
Service begins as soon as your payment is processed. You will be charged the full rate stated at the time of purchase, plus applicable taxes. Your subscription will renew automatically, on your renewal date, until you request termination.
Our charges for monthly and annual plans are posted on our Website and may be changed from time to time. If the changes affect existing users, they will be notified before the change takes effect. The account owner agrees to receive the invoices by electronic means. The invoices shall be visible in the Application if the account owner logs into the Account. Enterprise accounts will receive their invoices via e-mail upon request.
If you upgrade to a higher tier plan during the billing cycle, a prorated fee between the rates specified in the subscription you previously selected and the fees specified in the subscription to which you have upgraded will be applied. The prorated fee will be charged on the day of the upgrade.
If your account exceeds the usage limits of your current plan, Jounce reserves the right to pause, remove or limit account access.
As long as you are a Member or have an outstanding balance with us, you will provide us with valid credit card information and authorize us to deduct the monthly or annual charges against that credit card. You will replace the information for any credit card that expires with information for a valid one. Anyone using a credit card represents and warrants that they are authorized to use that credit card and that any and all charges may be billed to that credit card and won’t be rejected. If we are unable to process your credit card order, we will try to contact you by email and suspend your account until your payment can be processed.
Termination of the contract can be done directly from your subscription page or can be requested any time at help@Jounce.com only from the email address associated with the account. If this is not possible, we reserve the right to ask for additional information to prove ownership, such as but not limited to the last four digits of the credit card. The changes will take effect from the date and time of the request. Inactive accounts will not be considered as terminated, unless a specific request is sent.
If you terminate within 24 hours of your order, you will be eligible for a refund. Should more than 24 hours pass, your payment is non-refundable and your service will continue until the end of your subscription term.
The client permanently and irrevocably waives any and all rights to enact a ‘chargeback’ (that is, a disputed, reversed or contested charge with the applicable bank, credit card or charge card) against payments that were made during the period of the contract and are dated before the date of the termination request, for any reason whatsoever. Any chargeback processed against charges for Jounce will result in full and complete termination of all Jounce licenses and accounts due to the significant costs involved in administration of managing chargebacks.
Jounce is under no obligation to store your Content and may delete your Account and your Content immediately upon termination or may keep your Account and your Content for up to 60 days following the last day of the month of termination. If the account is reactivated, upon request from you, we will make any and all of your Content available for access, if possible.
