6. Payment and Refunds

6.1  A valid credit card is required for all Accounts.  After signing up for Your Account, if You don’t cancel Your account within 14 days, You will be billed monthly starting on the 15th day after Your account was initially created.

Such notice may be provided at any time by posting the changes to the LoTops website (LoTops.com) or the Service itself. LoTops shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, price change, suspension or discontinuance of the Service.

6.2 LoTops provides an interface for the Account owner to change credit card information (e.g., upon card renewal). The Account owner will receive an email receipt upon each credit card charge. LoTops uses a third-party intermediary to manage credit card processing and this intermediary is not permitted to store, retain, or use Your billing information except to process Your credit card information for LoTops.

7. Cancellation and Termination

7.1 You are responsible for properly cancelling Your account. The Account owner can cancel the account at any time by clicking on the ‘Cancellation’ button under the ‘Account’ tab in the main management dashboard. There are no other means of cancelling Your account.  All of Your Content will be deleted from the Service immediately upon cancellation. This information cannot be recovered once Your account is cancelled. If You are subscribed to the Paid Plan and You cancel the Service, Your cancellation will take effect immediately and You will not be charged again.

7.2 LoTops reserves the right to (i) modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service (or any part thereof) and (ii) refuse any and all current and future use of the Service, suspend or terminate Your account (any part thereof) or use of the Service and remove and discard any of Your content in the Service, for any reason, including, if LoTops believes that You have violated this Terms of Service. LoTops will use diligent efforts to publish on the Site or notify You about any planned downtime of the Service, and will use all reasonable efforts to contact You directly via email to warn You prior to suspension or termination of Your account. Any suspected fraudulent, abusive, or illegal activity that may be grounds for termination of Your use of Service, may be referred to appropriate law enforcement authorities.  LoTops shall not be liable to You or any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuation of the Service. 

8. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES

THE SERVICE, INCLUDING THE WEB SITE AND CONTENT, AND ALL SERVER AND NETWORK COMPONENTS ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW AND LOTOPS EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, TITLE, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT LOTOPS DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, ERROR-FREE OR VIRUS-FREE AND NO INFORMATION OR ADVICE OBTAINED BY YOU FROM LOTOPS OR THROUGH THE SERVICE SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THIS TERMS OF SERVICE.

9. INDEMNITY

You will indemnify and hold harmless LoTops and its officers, directors, employee and agents, from and against any claims, disputes, demands, liabilities, damages, losses, and costs and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees arising out of or in any way connected with (i) Your access to or use of the Service or Content and (ii) Your violation of this Terms of Service.

10. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

10.1 UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE) SHALL LOTOPS BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOST PROFITS, LOST SALES OR BUSINESS, LOST DATA OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION.
