Payments to us for Service Fees for your Account must be made using means of payment that we may approve from time to time. We currently require payments be made by a major credit card (i.e., VISA, MasterCard, & American Express). Payments must be made from a payment source on which you are the named account holder. Payments are not refundable for any reason.
By purchasing a monthly subscription, you agree to an initial and recurring Monthly Subscription fee at the then-current Monthly Subscription rate, and you accept responsibility for all recurring charges until your subscription is cancelled. You may cancel your Monthly Subscription at any time, subject to the terms of our cancellation policy. The Service will be billed in 30 day intervals. By purchasing an annual Subscription, you agree to an initial pre-payment for one full year of service. After one year and annually thereafter, you will be billed a recurring Annual Subscription renewal fee at the then-current Annual Subscription rate. You may cancel your Annual Subscription any time before the next billing cycle, subject to the terms of our cancellation policy. We bill your credit card for the Annual Subscription renewal fee in the first month of your next Annual Subscription. When your billing period is over the Account Owner will be sent an email. Users have approximately two weeks to bring up and settle any issues with the billing. If you do not bring any billing problems or discrepancies to our attention within two weeks, you agree that you waive your right to dispute such problems or discrepancies.
We may modify the price, content, or nature of the Services at any time. At our sole discretion, we may grandfather in the prices of certain members based on factors such as sign up date and good standing.

All fees are exclusive of applicable federal, provincial, state, local or other governmental sales, goods and services, harmonized or other taxes, fees or charges now in force or enacted in the future (Taxes).
If you are a resident in the U.S., Taxes may apply to your subscription to or purchase of some or all of Tool Dealer Network’s products and services. Any applicable Taxes are based on the rates applicable to the U.S. billing address you provide to us, and will be calculated at the time of purchase of the applicable Taxable Offerings. Such amounts are in addition to fees for the Taxable Offerings and will be billed to the credit card you use to pay for the Taxable Offerings. If you are exempt from payment of such Taxes, you must provide us with an original certificate that satisfies applicable legal requirements attesting to tax-exempt status. Tax exemption will only apply from and after the date we receive such a certificate. If we are obligated to pay or collect Taxes on the fees you’ve paid or will pay, you are responsible for such Taxes, and we may collect payment for such Taxes.
If your payment fails or if Paid Services are otherwise not paid for or paid for on time, we may immediately cancel or revoke your access to the Paid Services. If you contact your bank or credit card company to decline or reverse the charge of fees for Paid Services, we may revoke your access to our Services in general. You will be charged a $35 reactivation fee as well as any past due amounts. Following any such non-payment, we may require you to provide a second valid credit card before continuing to use the Services. You authorize us to charge outstanding fees and other amounts due us against any credit card you have on file with us. If you do not pay the outstanding balance or otherwise contact us regarding reactivating your Account within thirty (30) days, we may suspend or terminate your account.

In the case of suspected or fraudulent payment, including the use of stolen credentials, by anyone, or any other fraudulent activity, we reserve the right to block your Account. We shall be entitled to inform any relevant authorities or entities (including credit reference agencies) of any payment fraud or other unlawful activity and may employ collection services to recover payments. If your account is more than thirty (30) days past due, and is forwarded to a collections agency, you will additionally be liable for any recovery fees charged by the agency. You are solely responsible for any and all fees charged to your credit card by the issuer, bank, or financial institution including, but not limited to, membership overdraft, insufficient funds, and over the credit limit fees.
11. Automatic Renewal, Cancellation, and Termination
To ensure uninterrupted service, recurring Paid Services are automatically renewed. This means that unless you cancel a Paid Service before the end of the applicable subscription period, it will automatically renew, and you authorize us to invoice you or use any payment mechanism we have on record for you to collect the then-applicable subscription fee (as well as any Taxes). By default, your Paid Services will be renewed for the same interval of time as your original subscription period. For example, if you purchase a tooldealernetwork.com annual plan, you will be charged each year for the following 12-month period. We may charge your account up to one month before the end of the subscription period. It is your responsibility to make sure you are checking your email (including any spam or other filters) in order to receive any reminder email we send to you in advance of renewal. The date for the automatic renewal is determined automatically based on the date of the original purchase and cannot be changed. You can view your renewal date by visiting your Manage Purchases page.
You can manage and cancel your Paid Services online. To cancel your plan, go to your Dashboard page, select payment, then select free account. You may also email firstname.lastname@example.org and then follow the specific instructions indicated to you in Tool Dealer Network’s response.
We may change our fees at any time, or start charging fees for Services that were previously free. When applicable, we may give you advance notice of the fee changes. If you don’t agree with the fee changes, you must cancel your Paid Service. While you may cancel a Paid Service at any time, refunds are issued in our sole discretion, unless otherwise required by applicable law.
Upon termination of the Services by either party for any reason: Tool Dealer Network will cease providing you with the Services and you will no longer be able to access your Account; unless otherwise provided in the Terms of Service, you will not be entitled to any refunds of any Fees, pro rata or otherwise; and any outstanding balance owed to Tool Dealer Network for your use of the Services through the effective date of such termination will immediately become due and payable in full.
We reserve the right to modify or terminate the Tool Dealer Network Service for any reason, without notice at any time.

If we terminate your Account, all of your Account Data may be deleted.
You may cancel at any time before the end of your first month, and you will not be charged for use of the Services. After the first month, you may cancel your Account before the Renewal Date, and your account will not be renewed, but you will be charged for the use of Services up to the date you cancel your account.
12. Security & Processing of Account Payments
We will implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the information required for the performance of the Services. If you provide information to us that requires a higher level of security, such as special categories under the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), you assume the responsibility of properly securing said information and acknowledge that providing any such information to us which is not required for the performance of the Services is a violation of these Terms.
We may use third-party electronic payment processors and/or financial institutions (“ESPs”) to process financial transactions. When initially setting up your Account, you will have the ability to decide which ESP you want to process your payments. By selecting the ESP, you authorize us, as necessary, to instruct such ESPs to handle such transactions. You authorize us to give such instructions on your behalf in accordance with your requests as submitted on the Site for the use of Services. You acknowledge that each ESP has its own terms and conditions of use and that we are not responsible for said terms and conditions. In the event or conflict between these Terms and the ESP’s terms and conditions regarding the Site or the Services, these Terms shall prevail.
Tool Dealer Network's Payments Service does not handle “Card Data” (defined as a cardholder’s account number, expiration date and CVV2) as we do NOT receive or store card holder data. We provide a checkout page which sends “Card Data” to your merchant processor directly at time of checkout processing. We then receive a token which represents the Card Data but does not contain the Primary Account Number. We use this token to perform charge processing, and never receive, store, or use Card Data to perform processing.

We may occasionally update our services and that means sometimes we have to change the legal terms under which our Services are offered. These Terms may only be modified by a written amendment signed by an authorized executive of Tool Dealer Network, or by the posting by Tool Dealer Network of a revised version. If we make changes that are material, we will let you know by sending you an email or other communication before the changes take effect. The notice will designate a reasonable period of time after which the new terms will take effect. If you disagree with our changes, then you should stop using our Services within the designated notice period, or once the changes become effective.

However, any dispute that arose before the changes shall be governed by the Terms (including the binding individual arbitration clause) that were in place when the dispute arose.
