General

Norebase may collect these fees using a third-party payment service. Norebase shall commence the implementation of a Service ordered only after the receipt of the full payment of the fees. All fees and charges are payable in the currency nominated by Norebase, usually, USD, and the amount shall be computed using the Foreign Exchange Rate and shall be determined as of the date of computation. The Client is not authorized to withhold fees and interests due to any service, guarantee, or liability-related claims. In the same manner, any right of offset on the part of the Client is hereby excluded.

Automatic Billing and Recurring Payments

9.2 Norebase may send a reminder email to the email address of record for the Client’s account before any installment billing dates. The Client acknowledges and agrees that this notice is provided as a courtesy only, and Norebase is not obligated or required to provide such notice. The Client acknowledges and agrees that (i) failure to read, (ii) inability to receive, and/or (iii) the failure of Norebase to send the email does not create any liability on the part of Norebase or any third-party service provider for initiating automatic payments for subscribing to Norebase annual services.

Consequently, the Client hereby authorises Norebase to charge the card originally used for purchase on either a monthly or yearly basis for a Service as appropriate. You may elect to discontinue some or all of your paid services at any time by contacting support@norebase.com. Should you elect to discontinue any of the paid services prior to the expiration of the initial 12-month term you may be required to pay a cancellation fee and any other expenses which have been paid or incurred by Norebase, including state or third-party vendor fees.

Any monies required in the settlement of all fees, taxes, disbursements and expenses may immediately be debited to any such account for the credit of any account of Norebase, which shall immediately become entitled to all such monies. (For the avoidance of doubt, Norebase will automatically collect monies due to it in respect of any Agreement, annual responsibility (or other) fees, taxes, disbursements and expenses from any bank account maintained in respect of the Client without the prior approval of the Client).

9.4 Where a third party makes a card payment to Norebase on behalf of the Client, The Client warrants that the cardholder has authorized the payment, as well as the use of the card and processing of the card data by Norebase in accordance with the Agreement.
