3. FEES AND PAYMENT
a. Some portions of the R2B Service may have fees associated with them (each, a “Paid Service”). You will have the opportunity to review and accept the fees that you will be charged before using a Paid Service. We may change fees for any portion of the R2B Service at any time. Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in U.S. Dollars.
b. You are solely responsible for paying all fees and applicable taxes associated with your R2B Service account in a timely manner with a valid payment method. By electing to purchase or otherwise use a Paid Service, you authorize R2B or its third-party payment processors to charge the credit card or other payment method identified by you (“Payment Method), which you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use, all applicable fees for that Paid Service, including all applicable taxes. For purchases of one-time Paid Services (i.e., not subscriptions), your Payment Method will be billed for that Paid Service on the date that you make the purchase.
r-2b.com is a subscription service.
c. For purchases of subscriptions to Paid Services:
Your "Subscription Billing Date” is the date when you purchase your first subscription to a Paid Service. For example, if you purchase your first subscription to a Paid Service on January 10th: (1) your Subscription Billing Date for your first monthly subscription and all other monthly subscriptions you purchase is the 10th of each month, (2) your Subscription Billing Date for your first annual subscription is January 10th of each year, and (3) your Subscription Billing Date for all subsequent purchases of annual subscriptions will be the next soonest 10th monthly calendar day after your date of purchase. Your Payment Method will be charged automatically on the Subscription Billing Date all applicable fees for the next month or year, as applicable. For any subscription to a Paid Service that you purchase after your Subscription Billing Date is established, your Payment Method will first be charged a pro-rata amount of the subscription fee for the number of days between the purchase date and the applicable Subscription Billing Date. Your Payment Method will then be charged the full periodic subscription fee for the next month or year, as applicable, on each Subscription Billing Date thereafter (or on the last day of the calendar month, if the last day of the calendar month occurs before the Subscription Billing Date for that month).
d. For any subscription to a Paid Service, that subscription will continue unless and until you cancel your subscription or we terminate it. You must cancel your subscription before it renews to avoid billing of the next period's (i.e., month’s or year’s) subscription fees to your Payment Method. We will bill the periodic subscription fee to the Payment Method you provide to us during registration (or to a different Payment Method if you change your account information).
e. You acknowledge and agree that any credit card and related billing and payment information that you provide to R2B may be shared by R2B with companies who work on R2B behalf, such as payment processors or credit agencies, solely for the purpose of checking credit, effecting payment to R2B and servicing your account. The terms of your payment will be based on your chosen Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and the financial institution providing such Payment Method. For certain Payment Methods, the issuer of your Payment Method may charge you a foreign transaction fee or related charges. Check with your bank and credit card issuers for details. If your Payment Method for any Paid Service fails or your account is past due, (i) you agree to pay all amounts due on your R2B account upon demand, (ii) R2B may collect fees owed using other collection mechanisms (this includes charging other payment methods on file with us) and (iii) R2B reserves the right to either suspend or terminate your access to one or more R2B Services or your account with R2B. Upon any such termination, you will remain obligated to pay all outstanding fees and charges relating to your account and your use of the R2B Service before termination.
