SECTION 5: PURCHASES AND PAYMENT TERMS
5.1 Customer agrees to pay all fees or charges to Customer Account in accordance with the fees, charges and billing terms in effect at the time a fee or charge is due and payable, or as specifically set forth in Customer’s Pricing or any applicable Order. Any disputes relating to payment must be made within 30 days from the time Velocity billed or invoiced Customer. Customer must provide Velocity with a valid credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Stipe, or any other issuer accepted by Velocity) (“Payment Provider”), or purchase order information as a condition to signing up for the Services. Customer Payment Provider agreement governs Customer use of the designated credit card, and Customer must refer to that agreement and not the Terms to determine Customer rights and liabilities. By providing Velocity with Customer credit card number and/or other payment information, Customer agrees that Velocity is authorized to immediately invoice Customer Account for all fees and charges due and payable to Velocity hereunder and that no additional notice is required. Customer agrees to immediately notify Velocity of any change in Customer billing address, payment info, or the credit card used for payment hereunder. Other than what is explicitly stated in Customer’s Pricing, Velocity reserves the right at any time to change its prices and billing methods, either immediately upon posting on the Website or by email delivery to Customer.
5.2 Customer will be responsible for all charges and any taxes associated with the use of any Velocity services, including cellular connectivity, on a rating plan selected by the Customer from the Website (or if Customer does not select a rating plan the default rating plan and connectivity configuration assigned by Velocity), or applied to the Customer’s and End User’s devices or account by Velocity based on the Customer’s request or other requirement.
5.3 Customer agrees that any redundant, fallback, bootstrap, supplementary or otherwise non-primary connectivity provided to the Customer from Velocity is provided as a courtesy and is at Velocity’s discretion to enable or disable. Customer also agrees that should this redundant, fallback, bootstrap, or supplementary usage exceed more than 5% of total monthly usage on a per-device basis, that they may be responsible for additional data usage costs at Velocity’s discretion according to the latest fallback connectivity pricing sheet maintained by Velocity.
5.4 Customer will be responsible for payment of the applicable fee for any Services (each, a “Service Subscription Fee”) at the time Customer creates a Customer Account and select Customer monthly or annual package, as applicable, or as otherwise set forth in any applicable Order (each, a “Service Commencement Date”). Except as set forth in the Terms or any applicable Order, all fees for the Services are non-refundable. No contract will exist between Customer and Velocity for the Services until Velocity accepts Customer order by a confirmatory e-mail, SMS/MMS message, or other appropriate means of communication.
5.5 Customer subscription will continue indefinitely until terminated in accordance with the Terms, or as set forth in any applicable Order. Unless otherwise set forth in an applicable Order, after Customer initial Term or subscription period, and again after any subsequent subscription period, Customer subscription will automatically commence on the first day following the end of such period (each a “Renewal Commencement Date”) and continue for an additional equivalent period, at Velocity’s then-current price for such subscription. Unless otherwise set forth in an applicable Order, Customer agrees that Customer Account will be subject to this automatic renewal feature unless Customer cancel Customer subscription at least (a) thirty (30) days prior to the Renewal Commencement Date (or in the event that Customer receive a notice from Velocity that Customer subscription will be automatically renewed, Customer will have thirty days from the date of the Velocity notice). If Customer does not wish Customer Account to renew automatically, or if Customer wants to change or terminate Customer subscription, please contact Velocity at support@Velocityiot.io. If Customer cancels Customer subscription, Customer may use Customer subscription until the end of Customer then-current subscription term; Customer subscription will not be renewed after Customer then-current term expires. However, Customer will not be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then-current subscription period. By subscribing, Customer authorizes Velocity to charge Customer Payment Provider now, and again at the beginning of any subsequent subscription period. Upon renewal of Customer subscription, if Velocity does not receive payment from Customer Payment Provider, (i) Customer agrees to pay all amounts due on Customer Account upon demand, and/or (ii) Customer agrees that Velocity may either terminate or suspend Customer subscription and continue to attempt to charge Customer Payment Provider until payment is received (upon receipt of payment, Customer Account will be activated and for purposes of automatic renewal, Customer new subscription commitment period will begin as of the day payment was received).
5.6 Velocity reserves the right to charge Customer any overage fees accrued or incurred in accordance with Customer Order. Customer acknowledges and agree that overage fees may not be invoiced in the month used and that any failure by Velocity to bill or invoice for overage and related charges on a timely basis will not be a basis for Customer to dispute payment of such charges.
5.7 Velocity reserves the right to change carriers, network access and coverage plans at any time. Other than the committed carrier or data rate configuration that are expressly stated in the Pricing Terms, in the event any carrier, network access and/or coverage plans rates are increased by the applicable carrier or service provider, Velocity reserves the right to increase its fees upon 30 days notice to Customer.
5.8 If Customer has agreed to terms including committed volume pricing, then Customer is liable for MRC charges according to the device volume and date committed in the “Additional Terms” section of this agreement and will promptly pay for any MRC shortfall following the end of the commitment period.

Representations and warranties made by any representatives, salespersons, or agents of Velocity, which are inconsistent or in conflict with or in addition to the terms of the Agreement, will not be binding upon Velocity unless reduced to writing and approved by an expressly authorized officer of Velocity.
For Products manufactured by a third party (“Third Party”), Velocity assigns to Customer any rights that may exist under the warranty provided by the manufacturer, but Velocity does not warrant the performance of the third-party manufactured product, or provide any remedy for failure of the third-party product to perform.
