- Payment Terms. By clicking “I Accept”, you are expressly authorizing iQ to charge you a recurring monthly fee for the Services at the then current rate appearing on the “Virtual Offices” portion of the iQ website, together with all applicable harmonized sales tax, goods and services tax and any other value added tax thereon (the “Monthly Fee”), and to process the Monthly Fee using the method which you select during the registration process, or such other method as you may subsequently select by notifying iQ in writing (the “Payment Method”). You acknowledge and agree that iQ has the right to change the Monthly Fee upon 30 days’ written notice to you. Upon accepting the terms of this Agreement, your first Monthly Payment, along with a one-time setup fee, will become immediately due and payable. Thereafter, iQ will automatically bill your Payment Method for the Services on the monthly anniversary of the Effective Date (the “Payment Date”) unless and until you or iQ terminate this Agreement. PAYMENTS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE AND iQ DOES NOT GIVE REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR PARTIALLY USED PERIODS. If you wish to select a different Payment Method, or if there is a change in your Payment Method, such as your credit card expiration date, you must notify iQ in writing of such change. If your Payment Method reaches its expiration date, or if you cancel your Payment Method without notice to iQ, you authorize iQ to continue billing the Payment Method which it has on file and to pursue you for all uncollected amounts. Any payment which iQ is not able to process on the Payment Date will be considered overdue, will be subject to a 5% late payment fee and will bear interest at a rate of 5% per month.

- Either party may terminate this Agreement for any reason whatsoever by providing the other party with one (1) month written notice from the first day of the month (the “Termination Period”). If your Payment Date falls within the Termination Period, the Monthly Fee shall remain payable and you hereby authorize iQ to charge the Monthly Fee using your Payment Method. iQ reserves the right to terminate this Agreement or restrict your access to the Services, without prejudice to any other right or remedy to which it may be entitled, in the event that you default under the terms of this Agreement and fail to remedy such default within five business days of receiving written notice of the default from iQ.
