We may track the number of Contributors to verify that you are paying for the correct number of subscriptions and invoice you for any additional fees due.

4. PAYMENT

  1. If you choose a paid-subscription plan, you agree to pay us fees in accordance with the relevant pricing plan until you terminate your subscription in accordance with clause 12 (Dispute Resolution and Termination). Details of those fees are set out on our Pricing Page at https://www.logilica.com/pricing-plans/ (which do not include GST). In relation to any GST payable for a taxable supply by us, you must pay the GST subject to us providing a tax invoice.

  2. Depending on the pricing plan chosen by you, our third-party payment processor will (and you hereby authorise it to) bill your payment card for the applicable fee in advance on or shortly after the date you subscribe for a paid plan and each month or anniversary thereafter, until terminated by you or us. The fees are non-cancellable and non-refundable, except as expressly stated otherwise in the terms of this Agreement.

  3. The processing of payments by our third-party payment processor will be, in addition to the terms of this Agreement, subject to the terms, conditions and privacy policies of that third-party payment processor and we are not liable for the security or performance of that third-party payment processor. We reserve the right to correct, or to instruct our third-party payment processor to correct, any errors or mistakes in collecting your payment.

  4. We reserve the right to charge credit card surcharges in the event payments are made using a credit, debit or charge card.

  5. If you move to a higher tier of a paid plan, the change will take effect immediately and we will charge you for the additional fees associated with the new paid plan on a pro-rata basis.

You acknowledge that you will not receive a refund for the then-current Term if you move to a lower tier of a paid plan, or to a non-payment subscription plan.

  6. We reserve the right not to provide you with the Services until the relevant fee has been received in full and cleared funds.

  8. You will pay fees without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding of any kind, except as may be required by law. If any withholding or deduction is required by law, you will, when making the payment to which the withholding or deduction relates, pay to us such additional amount as will ensure that we receive the same total amount that it would have received if no such withholding or deduction had been required.
