PAYMENTS

We understand that You might cancel Your account, but please know that We will not provide any refund(s) and You will be responsible for paying any balance due on the Account. You agree that ZipApply.com may charge such unpaid fees to your credit card or otherwise bill you for such unpaid fees. 

You may be able to "Buy Credits" under your Account to receive certain Services. An explanation of our fee structure is available under the “credits” section of our Site. We reserve the right to change our pricing policy or the method or manner in which we charge for our Service at any time at our sole discretion without further notice. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event a pricing change affects fees which you have already agreed to pay for credits we will notify you of such changes prior to such change taking effect and you will have the option of continuing to receive the applicable service if you agree with the price change. If you do not agree, we will not be able to keep providing you the Service when your credits run out. Once we have confirmed receipt of your payment, we will credit your account with the number of credits purchased. If we receive a payment for an incorrect amount or non-specified currency payments, we reserve the right to credit your account with a prorated number of credits based on the funds received, converted to the specified currency at a reasonable market exchange rate at the time of processing. Account credits may not be transferred from one client of the Service to another client.

Credits can be acquired by buying “Packages.” When signing to buy packaged Credits, you agree and understand that you are entering into a monthly subscription type Service, which is automatically renewed. IF NOT CONSUMED WITHIN THE MONTH, ANY CREDITS LEFT IN YOUR ACCOUNT WILL AUTOMATICALLY EXPIRE AND WE WILL AUTOMATICALLY REPLACE YOUR CREDITS (WITHOUT FURTHER AUTHORIZATION FROM YOU) AT THE BEGINNING OF EACH MONTH UNDER THE SAME CREDIT PACKAGE THAT YOU HAD PURCHASED PREVIOUSLY USING THE SAME PAYMENT METHOD YOU PREVIOUSLY USED. In the event that any action you take or features you use on the Site results in you having a "zero balance" or a negative balance of credits before the end of the current month, you will be able to acquire additional credits by upgrading your Credit Package to a package with more Credits. You understand and agree that WE WILL AUTOMATICALLY RENEW YOUR SUBSCRIPTION UNDER THE NEWLY PURCHASED CREDIT PACKAGE UNLESS YOU EXPRESSLY CHANGE YOUR SELECTION TO YOUR PREVIOUSLY SELECTED PACKAGE BEFORE THE AUTOMATIC RENEWAL OCCURS.

You may cancel your Account at any time, in which case you will be able to use your purchased Credits until the end of the then current month. All credits in your account expire at the end upon cancellation of your account or after each month of your subscription. You can confirm the expiry date of your account and any account balance at any time by clicking on here or by using the internal chat application to ask a member of our client success team. 

If your usage of the Service is terminated because of a breach of these Terms or if it is terminated for any reason pursuant to these Terms, all credits in your account will expire.

Any submissions by You to Us (e.g., comments, questions, suggestions, materials – collectively, “Feedback”) through any communication whatsoever (e.g., call, fax, email) will be treated as both non-confidential and non-proprietary. You hereby assign all right, title, and interest in, and We are free to use, without any attribution or compensation to You, any ideas, know-how, concepts, techniques, or other intellectual property and proprietary rights contained in the Feedback, whether or not patentable, for any purpose whatsoever, including but not limited to, developing, manufacturing, having manufactured, licensing, marketing, and selling, directly or indirectly, products and services using such Feedback. You understand and agree that We are not obligated to use, display, reproduce, or distribute any such ideas, know-how, concepts, or techniques contained in the Feedback, and You have no right to compel such use, display, reproduction, or distribution. 




ARBITRATION

All disputes, controversies, causes of action (in tort, contract, by statute or otherwise) (“Disputes”), including, without limitation, Disputes arising from or relating to this Arbitration Provision (including the interpretation, breach, termination and invalidity thereof) or the relationship that results from these Terms shall be resolved by binding arbitration by a single independent and impartial arbitrator under the applicable Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) (http://www.adr.org/, 1-800-778-7879). 

Arbitration replaces the right to go to court, and therefore the parties waive any right that you or ZipApply.com might otherwise have had to a jury trial or the opportunity to litigate any claims in court before either a judge or jury. Notwithstanding the foregoing, ZipApply.com reserves the right to pursue the protection of its intellectual property rights and confidential information outside of arbitration and to stop other illegal activities through injunctive relief or other equitable relief through the courts. If ZipApply.com chooses to litigate any dispute regarding the scope or validity of ZipApply.com’s intellectual property rights outside of arbitration, the arbitrator shall have no authority to make any finding or judgment with respect to such scope or validity. 



Venue: The exclusive venue for the arbitration shall be Forsyth County, Georgia, United States of America. The parties will agree on a reasonable location, in the event that Forsyth County is an inappropriate forum. The parties will endeavor to minimize the need for long distance travel through use of telephonic communications and submission of documents as permitted under the applicable rules for Expedited Procedures. The official language of the arbitration shall be English. 



Arbitration shall be commenced by filing a Claim pursuant to the applicable American Arbitration Association Rules. The arbitration shall be completed, barring extraordinary circumstances within ninety (90) days of the filing of the Claim. The parties may grant reasonable continuance upon good cause shown. The Award shall be reasoned and shall be rendered within thirty (30) days of closure of the arbitration proceedings. 



Rules and forms may be obtained and Claims may be filed at American Arbitration Association, 1633 Broadway, Floor 10, New York, NY 10019-6708, (212) 716 – 5800, (800) 778 – 7879, www.adr.org. 



All parties have the right, at their own expense, to be represented by an attorney or spokesperson of their own choosing. Discovery shall be expeditiously completed within three (3) months of the time the parties are at issue. Each party shall produce relevant non-privileged documents requested by the other party. Discovery procedures available in court actions do not apply. The arbitrator shall grant oral and/or written discovery to preserve evidence or upon a showing of need. All discovery disputes shall be promptly submitted to and promptly resolved by the arbitrator. The Parties may elect to use any of the Expedited Procedures of the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures of the AAA. 



Any party may seek a preliminary injunction or other provisional, injunctive, emergency or equitable relief (but not monetary relief) in a court of competent jurisdiction if, in its sole judgment, such relief is necessary to preserve the status quo or to prevent irreparable harm. The parties shall, despite seeking relief under this section, participate in good faith in the arbitration. 



The arbitrator will take reasonable steps to protect customer account information and other confidential or proprietary information. The arbitration will be confidential unless the Parties request otherwise. 



The Parties shall equally share the fees charged by the arbitrator and the AAA, but they shall otherwise bear their own expenses incurred in connection with conducting the arbitration and related discovery. Enforcement of the arbitrator’s judgment may be sought in any court of competent jurisdiction. 


GOVERNING LAW AND COURTS

These Terms involve transactions between the parties in interstate commerce and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 USC § 1-19. Judgment upon any interim or final award shall be entered and confirmed in any court or tribunal of competent jurisdiction. The substantive law of the State of Georgia (excluding its conflicts of law provisions) and applicable U.S. federal law, shall apply to all disputes and the Agreement. If there is a difference between the Federal Arbitration Act and Georgia law, the Federal Arbitration Act controls. Foreign laws do not apply. 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Parties agree that any dispute arising under these Terms regarding the scope or validity of ZipApply.com’s Intellectual Property Rights, if not resolved informally, (i) shall be interpreted solely under the laws of Georgia, USA; and (ii) shall be finally resolved exclusively in the courts located within Forsyth County, Georgia, USA, and You hereby consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts. You agree not to challenge the jurisdiction of the courts contemplated in the preceding sentence. In the event that You challenge such jurisdiction or bring an action in any other court, You agree that (i) ZipApply.com shall be entitled to recover all expenses, including attorneys’ fees, incurred in connection with Your challenge or court action, in addition to any award that may be given to ZipApply.com, and (ii) any judgment awarded to You shall be reduced by the amount of such expenses incurred by ZipApply.com, and, if such expenses exceed the award, You shall pay the difference to ZipApply.com.
