You acknowledge that the amount billed each month may vary from month to month depending upon your use of the Service and possible transaction fees. We reserve the right to adjust pricing and fees at any time.

5. Method of Payment
We will charge the payment method you specify at the time of purchase for all initial and subsequent charges. You authorize us to charge all sums as described in these Terms to that payment method for the Service you purchase. If fees are paid with a credit card, we may seek pre-authorization of your credit card account prior to your purchase to verify that the credit card is valid and has the necessary funds or credit available to pay for your purchase. The Service may include functionality for activating, updating or canceling recurring payments for periodic charges. If you activate or update recurring payments through the Service, you authorize us to periodically charge, on a going-forward basis and until cancellation of either the recurring payments or your account, all accrued sums on or before the payment due date for the accrued sums. Please note that it may take several business days for any update or cancellation of any existing authorized one-time or recurring payment to take effect.
We may, in our sole discretion, enable you to purchase and/or pay for the Service through an authorized third party reseller or payment processing firm (including, for example, a telecommunications provider or a mobile app marketplace like Apple iTunes or Google Play). Your obligation for payment to, and relationship with, such third party reseller or payment processor is a contractual matter between you and that third party. We are not a party to, or responsible on account of, such contract and agreement. We do not control how you can pay that third party or how any refunds may be issued by that third party. Please review the terms of service with that third party carefully. While we select our third party resellers and payment processors carefully, we cannot and do not guaranty their performance. We encourage you to provide any feedback to email@example.com regarding any third party reseller or payment processor, as we value your input.
You agree to pay the charges for the Service in the currency specified by Cleverific (or any third party reseller or payment processor from which you may purchase the Service), and you assume all risks associated with any changing value in the currency compared with other currencies. The charge for the Service may include VAT and sales tax and certain other taxes or delivery or similar charges applicable to your purchase. If any applicable tax or charge is not charged by us (or a third party reseller or payment processor), you acknowledge that you are solely responsible for paying the tax or other such charge.
All fees and sales are FINAL AND NON-REFUNDABLE to the fullest extent permitted by law and any refunds shall be made in our sole and absolute discretion. Our decision, if any, to issue a refund shall not entitle you or any other user of the Service to any discounts or refunds in the future for similar events and/or occurrences.

21. Disclaimers; No Warranties
THE SERVICE AND ANY DOWNLOADABLE SOFTWARE, APPLICATIONS, CONTENT, PRODUCTS, SERVICES AND MATERIALS AVAILABLE IN CONJUNCTION WITH OR THROUGH THE SERVICE ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE”, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED.

WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, THE CLEVERIFIC ENTITIES DO NOT WARRANT OR MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS (I) THAT THE SERVICE AND ANY DOWNLOADABLE SOFTWARE, WEBSITE, CONTENT, SERVICES, OR APPLICATIONS MADE AVAILABLE IN CONJUNCTION WITH OR THROUGH THE SERVICE OR THIRD-PARTY CONTENT WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, THAT DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED, OR THAT THE SERVICE AND ANY DOWNLOADABLE SOFTWARE, WEBSITE, CONTENT, SERVICES, OR APPLICATIONS MADE AVAILABLE IN CONJUNCTION WITH OR THROUGH THE SERVICE, THE SERVER THAT MAKES THEM AVAILABLE, OR THIRD-PARTY CONTENT ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS, (II) REGARDING THE USE OF THE SERVICE AND ANY DOWNLOADABLE SOFTWARE, WEBSITE, CONTENT, SERVICES, OR APPLICATIONS OR THIRD-PARTY CONTENT MADE AVAILABLE IN CONJUNCTION WITH OR THROUGH THE SERVICE IN TERMS OF CORRECTNESS, ACCURACY, RELIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE, AND/OR (III) THAT THE SERVICE AND ANY DOWNLOADABLE SOFTWARE, WEBSITE, CONTENT, SERVICES, OR APPLICATIONS MADE AVAILABLE IN CONJUNCTION WITH OR THROUGH THE SERVICE OR THIRD-PARTY CONTENT WILL BE SECURE OR NT OTHERISE LOST OR ALTERED.

YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGES TO YOUR PROPERTY (INCLUDING YOUR COMPUTER SYSTEM OR MOBILE DEVICE USED IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICE), OR THE LOSS OF DATA THAT RESULTS FROM THE USE OF THE SERVICE OR THE DOWNLOAD OF SUCH MATERIAL OR DATA.
CERTAIN STATE LAWS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES. IF THESE LAWS APPLY TO YOU, SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE DISCLAIMERS, EXCLUSIONS, OR LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU, AND YOU MIGHT HAVE ADDITIONAL RIGHTS.
22. Limitation of Liability
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL THE CLEVERIFIC ENTITIES AND OUR AFFILIATES BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE AND PRODUCT LIABILITY), OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF THE CLEVERIFIC ENTITIES OR OUR AFFILIATES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. APPLICABLE LAW MAY NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY OR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN SUCH CASES, CLEVERIFIC’S LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
THE TOTAL LIABILITY OF THE CLEVERIFIC ENTITIES TO YOU FOR ALL DAMAGES, LOSSES OR CAUSES OF ACTION IS LIMITED TO $100 OR THE AMOUNTS, IF ANY, PAID BY YOU TO USE THE SERVICE, WHICHEVER IS MORE. THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS WILL APPLY TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER CLEVERIFIC HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER ANY REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, IN WHICH CASE SUCH LIMITATIONS SHALL APPLY TO YOU TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED IN SUCH JURISDICTION. FURTHERMORE, NOTHING IN THESE TERMS LIMITS OR EXCLUDES ANY LIABILITY THAT CANNOT BE LIMITED OR EXCLUDED BY LAW, SUCH AS LIABILITY FOR INTENTIONAL VIOLATION OF THESE TERMS. NOTHING IN THESE TERMS AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AS A CONSUMER.
EACH PROVISION OF THESE TERMS THAT PROVIDES FOR A LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES, OR EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES IS INTENDED TO AND DOES ALLOCATE THE RISKS BETWEEN THE PARTIES UNDER THESE TERMS. THIS ALLOCATION IS AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN THE PARTIES. EACH OF THESE PROVISIONS IS SEVERABLE AND INDEPENDENT OF ALL OTHER PROVISIONS OF THESE TERMS. THE LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION WILL APPLY EVEN IF ANY LIMITED REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
23. Force Majeure
Cleverific shall be excused from performance under these Terms for any period that it is prevented from or delayed in performing any obligations pursuant to these Terms, in whole or in part, as a result of: (1) inclement weather or acts of God; (2) acts of war, terrorism, insurrection, riots, civil disorders or rebellion; (3) quarantines or embargoes; (4) labor trouble; (5) acts of government or public bodies; (6) telecommunications, network, computer, server or Internet downtime; (7) unauthorized access to Cleverific’s information technology systems by third parties; or (8) other causes unforeseen by Cleverific and beyond our reasonable control.
