Software Subscription Terms and Conditions
These software subscription terms and conditions (these "Terms") govern the subscription to the DHS Group platform and any related services or goods (collectively, the “Services”) provided by Dynamic Health Strategies, LLC (dba DHS Group), a Texas limited liability company and its affiliates ("DHS Group," "we," "us") to the customer ("Customer," "you, "your") listed on the order attached hereto (the "Order"). The Order and these Terms (collectively, this "Agreement") comprise the entire agreement between the parties, and supersede all prior or contemporaneous understandings, agreements, negotiations, representations and warranties, and communications, both written and oral. In the event of any conflict between these Terms and the Order, these Terms shall govern. THIS IS A LEGAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND DHS Group AND GOVERNS THE SERVICES SUBSCRIPTION, ANY RELATED SALE, AND YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES. By your affirmative action of signing the Order, electronically or otherwise, or using any of the Services you signify your agreement to these Terms. For the avoidance of doubt, these Terms prevail over any of Customer's general terms and conditions including without limitation any Customer modifications to the Order and regardless whether or when Customer has submitted such terms. Provision of services to Customer does not constitute acceptance of any of Customer's terms and conditions and does not serve to modify or amend these Terms.
Term and Additional Licenses. So long as Customer is in full compliance with the Agreement, DHS Group shall use commercially reasonable efforts to make the Services available for the period of time listed on the Order; in the event that the applicable period of time is not listed on the Order, such period shall be twelve (12) months (the “Initial Term”). Following the Initial Term, the Services shall automatically renew for successive twelve (12) month periods (each a “Renewal Term”) at DHS Group’s then current applicable price. The Initial Term and any Renewal Terms are referred to herein collectively as the Term. If desired, Customer may purchase additional Services during the Term. For example, if Customer would like to purchase additional licenses, it may do so at DHS Group’s then current pro-rated prices and such licenses shall be subject to and shall automatically terminate with this Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, the purchase of additional Services, including without limitation licenses, by Customer shall not change or extend the Initial Term or any Renewal Term. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, DHS Group may, from time to time change the Services without the consent of Customer.
Payment. DHS Group may offer promotional pricing in its sole discretion and any such promotional pricing shall be subject to any additional terms provided by DHS Group. Introductory pricing is only available during the Initial Term and only in the event that you have previously purchased Pro access to the Services. Education pricing is only available to faculty or staff employed by an accredited primary or secondary school, public or private university or college, school district, or board of education (including emeritus status professors), and proof of eligibility satisfactory to DHS Group may be required.
Customer shall pay amounts due to DHS Group at the time of purchase or immediately upon receipt of DHS Group’s invoice, as applicable. Customer shall make all payments hereunder in US dollars as directed by DHS Group. In the event payments are not received by DHS Group upon becoming due, DHS Group may: (i) charge interest on any such unpaid amounts at a rate of 5% per month or, if lower, the maximum amount permitted under applicable law, from the date such payment was due until the date paid; and (ii) suspend performance for some or all Services until payment has been made in full. Customer shall be responsible for all sales, use and excise taxes, and any other similar taxes, duties and charges of any kind imposed by any federal, state or local governmental entity on any amounts payable by Customer hereunder.
