THE SERVICE

The Service allows you to enter and store business data and to efficiently complete business related tasks through an account accessed via internet connection from your computer. The Service is not for personal, family or household use. Certain elements of the Service are proprietary technology of PEP Associates. Use of the Service does not provide you access to or rights in any of the proprietary information, software or know how belonging to PEP Associates.

  • The account is for a human being and will not be used by a “bot” or automated user.
  • The account is for just one user. Multiple users may not share a single login.
  • You provided complete and correct information for your account, including your full legal name, a valid email address, a valid credit card and any other information requested.

PRICING AND PAYMENT

The price for the Service is $75.00 USD per quarter for the Quarterly Plan (the “Fee”). The price of the Service is subject to change upon 30 days notice. Notice of a price change may be provided at any time by posting the change to the PEP Associates website.

The Fee does not include sales or other applicable state or local taxes. You are responsible for all applicable sales and other taxes. Sales and other taxes may be charged to your credit card with the Fee or at the time PEP Associates becomes aware of the need to collect such sales or other taxes.

If your account is not canceled (as provided below) during the initial month, the Fee will be charged to your credit card for use of the Service until cancellation or termination. The first Fee will be charged on the day that you provided information for an account. All Fees and taxes are non-refundable. There are no refunds or credits for a partial month’s use of the Service or for months when the Service was not used but the account was not cancelled. In the interest of fairness, no exceptions will be made to this policy.

 

CANCELLATION/TERMINATION

To terminate the Service and stop future Fee charges, you must cancel your account. You may cancel your account at any time by contacting PEP Associates or doing so through your PayPal account. An email does not cancel your account. PEP Associates will retain all of the information stored in your account for one month following cancellation. You must move all data and information that you wish to retain to another location prior to the end of that month.

PEP Associates has the right to terminate your account for any reason at any time. If your account is terminated, it will be deactivated and you will not have access to it. You will have no right to move any data or information from your account following termination by PEP Associates.
