Notwithstanding the foregoing, however, ProcessWurks may, at its option and in its sole discretion, remove or delete from the Site or Service any data, information, materials, or content (including any Client Content) that ProcessWurks determines violates the terms of this Agreement. For purposes of this Agreement, “Client Content” shall mean any data, materials, trademarks, logos, trade names, or information that you upload or input (or if you are a Customer, that any Authorized User or Client User uploads or inputs) into or in connection with the Site or Service.
Document Retention: You are and shall be fully and completely responsible for all document retention or other legal requirements with respect to or arising from the Client Content or your use or access to the Service.

SUBSCRIPTIONS AND SUBSCRIPTION FEES.
Subscription Plans: The Service is offered on a subscription basis and in accordance with the individual service plan selected by Subscriber and identified in the Order (a “Subscription Plan”). We may modify, terminate, or replace the Service or any Subscription Plan from time to time in our sole discretion and without prior notice. You should carefully review the scope and limitations of any Subscription Plan prior to placing an order.
Free Trials: If you are a Customer (subscriber), your access to the Service pursuant to a Subscription Plan may be preceded by a free trial (a “Trial”). We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to determine your eligibility for a Trial. If you receive a Trial, you may only use those portions of the Service included in your Trial, only for the duration of that Trial, and only for the purpose of evaluating the desirability of purchasing the Service. Upon the expiration of any Trial period, your access to the Service will cease, except where you have purchased and/or registered for a Subscription Plan in accordance with the terms hereof.
Promotions: ProcessWurks may offer from time to time promotions on the Site or with respect to the Service (including, without limitation, Trials) that may affect pricing and that are governed by terms and conditions separate from these Terms. If there is a conflict between the terms for a promotion and these Terms, the promotion terms will govern.
Subscription Fees: As consideration for ProcessWurks’s provision of the Service hereunder, Customer (subscriber) will pay to ProcessWurks all subscription fees and other amounts set forth hereunder or in the Order. Unless otherwise established in an applicable Order, Customer (subscriber) must have a current valid credit card or other payment method acceptable to ProcessWurks (“Payment Method”) in order to access (or permit Authorized Users or Client Users to access) the Service. By providing a Payment Method to ProcessWurks, Customer (subscriber) is expressly authorizing ProcessWurks to charge Customer (subscriber) the subscription fees and other amounts applicable to Customer (subscriber)’s Subscription Plan at the applicable frequency and at the then-current rate. Unless otherwise expressly established in the Order, the subscription fees applicable to Customer’s Subscription Plan shall be as posted at www.ProcessWurks.com/pricing-page/ as of the payment due date. ProcessWurks will bill all applicable subscription fees and other amounts in advance and to the Payment Method Customer provides during registration or in the Order (or to a different Payment Method if Customer advises us in writing of a change and provides an alternate, valid Payment Method). ALL SUBSCRIPTION FEES ARE FULLY EARNED UPON PAYMENT AND ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.
Renewal Terms: If you are a Customer (subscriber), your Subscription Plan will automatically renew for additional subscription terms of the same length (i.e., weekly, monthly, quarterly or annually) and on same and payment method set forth in the Payment Authorization upon expiration of your initial subscription term unless and until you cancel your Subscription Plan or we terminate it or ProcessWurks notifies the customer about the change in payment frequency at least 30 days prior to the beginning of the applicable Renewal Subscription Term. YOU MUST CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION PLAN BEFORE IT RENEWS FOR A RENEWAL SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD IN ORDER TO AVOID BILLING OF SUBSCRIPTION FEES FOR THE RENEWAL SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD TO YOUR PAYMENT METHOD.
Renewal Pricing: ProcessWurks reserves the right to change the Fees applicable to the Services for any Renewal Subscription Term, effective on the first day of such Renewal Subscription Term, provided that ProcessWurks has given Customer at least 30 days’ prior written notice of the pricing change as provided in this subsection (e). If pricing for the upcoming Renewal Subscription Term will change, ProcessWurks shall specify the new pricing terms in the Renewal Notice sent to Customer at least 30 days prior to the expiration of the current Subscription Term (such specification of new pricing, a “Price Change Notice”). If the subscription renewal is not timely cancelled as provided in Section 7(a), the subscription will automatically renew with the pricing set forth in the Price Change Notice.
Cancelation: Unless otherwise established in an applicable Order and subject to Section 6(a) hereof, you may cancel your Subscription Plan at any time; provided, however, that any such cancellation shall not become effective until the expiration of your then-current subscription term. If you cancel your Subscription Plan, you will continue to have access to the Service in accordance with the terms of your applicable Subscription Plan for the remainder of the then-current subscription term. PROCESSWURKS DOES NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR CREDITS WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICE OR ANY SUBSCRIPTION PLAN, INCLUDING FOR ANY PARTIALLY-USED SUBSCRIPTION TERMS. To cancel a Subscription Plan, please send a written cancelation request via email to ProcessWurks at cancel@ProcessWurks.com, and include the phrase “CANCEL SUBSCRIPTION” in the subject line. For additional information or for assistance, please contact ProcessWurks’s customer support team at 617-838-7724. Cancelations of Subscription Plans will only be effective when submitted in compliance with the requirements of, and as set forth in, this Section 6(e).
Subscription Fee Changes: Customer (subscriber) acknowledges that the amount billed each subscription period may vary due to promotional offers and/or changes made by ProcessWurks or Customer to Customer’s Subscription Plan (including, without limitation, upgrading or downgrading). In the event of any upgrade or downgrade of Customer’s Subscription Plan, the Payment Method will automatically be charged the new rate for your next billing cycle. PROCESSWURKS WILL NOT PROVIDE ANY REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR ANY UPGRADE OR DOWNGRADE OF A SUBSCRIPTION PLAN. Customer (subscriber) agrees and acknowledges that, in the event that Customer (subscriber) downgrades to a lesser Subscription Plan, such downgrading may result in a loss of Client Content, accessible Service features, or other changes to your User Account or access to the Service. Customer (subscriber) expressly accepts all risk associate with any such downgrade and acknowledges that ProcessWurks is not and will not be responsible or liable for such Client Content losses or denigration in access.
Taxes: The fees specified in this Agreement are exclusive of taxes, duties, levies, tariffs, and other governmental charges (including, without limitation, VAT) (collectively, “Taxes”). Customer (subscriber) shall be responsible for payment of all Taxes and any related interest and/or penalties resulting from any payments made hereunder, other than any taxes based on ProcessWurks’s net income.
Authorizations: Customer authorizes ProcessWurks or its billing platform to initiate entries to the bank account or credit card Customer specifies in its Payment Authorization in order to pay amounts due and, if necessary, to initiate adjustments for any transactions credited or debited in error. No prior notification of a charge will be required or provided unless the scheduled payment date or amount changes for a Renewal Subscription Term, in which case prior notice will be given as provided in this agreement and Terms of Service. This authorization (as modified to reflect any changes in Customer’s account information notified to ProcessWurks) will remain in effect during the duration of the Agreement, unless and until either ProcessWurks or Customer provides 15 days written notification of a change in payment method. Customer agrees to (i) not dispute scheduled charges that correspond to the terms of the Payment Schedule and the Agreement and (ii) in the event of a new payment method or a change in other account information, to update its Payment Authorization at least 15 days prior to the next billing date. Customer represents and warrants that the origination of ACH transactions or credit card transactions (as the case may be) to its account in accordance with the Agreement complies with applicable law.
Late Payments: Overdue amounts will bear interest at the rate of 1.5% per month or the maximum rate permitted by Applicable Laws, whichever is less. Customer shall reimburse ProcessWurks for any collection agency fees, attorney’s fees, court costs and other reasonable expenses ProcessWurks incurs in collecting any overdue amounts. In addition, ProcessWurks may suspend the Services as provided in Section 7(d)
Payment Disputes: Customer must assert any payment dispute in writing within 7 days after the due date of the invoice giving rise to the dispute. Customer waives the right to dispute any payment that Customer does not dispute in writing within such period. Any undisputed portion of an invoice must be paid by the due date.
Credit/debit Card Information: ProcessWurks does not store any credit / debit card information on the application. All payments are processed by third party providers and services.
TERM; TERMINATION; SUSPENSION OF SERVICES
Subscription Terms: Unless earlier terminated as provided in the Agreement, (i) the initial Subscription Term for the Services will be the subscription term specified in the initial Order Form for the Services, beginning on the Effective Date set forth in the Order Form; and (ii) Customer’s subscription to the Services will thereafter automatically renew for successive periods as set in section 6(e) (each, a “Renewal Subscription Term”), unless either (A) Customer cancels the subscription renewal by providing ProcessWurks with written notice of non-renewal to firstname.lastname@example.org at least 30 days before the expiration date of the then-current Subscription Term, or (B) ProcessWurks cancels the subscription renewal by providing Customer with written notice of non-renewal before the end of the then-current Subscription Term. The initial subscription term and each Renewal Subscription Term are referred to in the Agreement as a “Subscription Term”. A Subscription Term may not be terminated before its end except as expressly permitted by the Agreement.
Term of Agreement: The term of the Agreement (the “Term“) begins on the Effective Date of the Order Form for the initial Subscription Term for Customer’s first Services subscription and ends on the date of termination or expiration of the last Renewal Subscription Term of the Services.
Termination for Cause:
Either party may, in addition to other relief, terminate the Agreement if the other party breaches any material provision thereof and, if such breach is capable of cure, fails within 30 days after receipt of notice of default to correct such default. During any period of breach, ProcessWurks may suspend Customer’s access to the Services as provided in Section 6(d).
Either party may terminate the Agreement by written notice to other party if the other party (A) ceases to operate in the ordinary course, (B) becomes insolvent or generally unable to pay its debts as they become due, (C) becomes the subject of any bankruptcy, liquidation, dissolution or similar proceeding that is not resolved within 60 days of filing, (D) makes an assignment for the benefit of its creditors, or (E) has a receiver, trustee, custodian, or similar agent appointed for a material portion of its property or business (any of these, an “Insolvency Event”).
Suspension of Service: Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Agreement, ProcessWurks may (in addition to any other rights and remedies) suspend Customer’s and any Authorized User’s access to any portion or all of the Services, without liability to Customer, if (i) there is a material risk to or disruption of the security or performance of the SaaS Services or the ProcessWurks Technology or to any Affiliate, customer, supplier, vendor or commercial partner of ProcessWurks that was caused by Customer, its Affiliates, or its or their Authorized Users or Representatives (a “System Threat”); (ii) Customer is subject to an Insolvency Event; (iii) Customer is in breach of its payment obligations under the Agreement; (iv) Customer or any of its Representatives is using the Services, the ProcessWurks Materials or the Services Work Product for activities that are or are potentially fraudulent, in violation of Applicable Law or otherwise in breach of the Agreement; (v) Customer or any of its Affiliates is the subject of an investigation or legal action by or at the direction of any regulatory, governmental, or judicial authority, or if Customer or any of its Affiliates commits or is alleged to have committed acts of fraud or abuse that may compromise the integrity or reputation of the IRS E-file program and/or ProcessWurks (as determined by ProcessWurks in its sole discretion); or (vi) ProcessWurks’s provision of the Services to Customer or any Authorized User is prohibited by Applicable Law. If the suspension is for a System Threat, ProcessWurks shall use commercially reasonable efforts to provide prior notice to Customer, including by phone or email to Customer’s account contact. ProcessWurks shall work in good faith with Customer to resolve the circumstance giving rise to the suspension and shall resume providing access to the Services as soon as reasonably possible after the event giving rise to the suspension is resolved. Customer will continue to be obligated to pay all Fees for the Services during the period of suspension and Customer will not be entitled to any compensation or credits for any period of suspension, unless the suspension was due to ProcessWurks’s error or omission or a System Threat not caused by Customer, its Affiliates, or its or their Authorized Users or Representatives.
Effect of Termination: Upon termination or expiration of the Agreement, Customer’s rights under the Agreement immediately terminate (with the exception of those surviving termination, as described below). Customer remains responsible for all Fees and other payment obligations applicable to the remainder of the then-current Subscription Term, no refunds are available for any portion of the Subscription Term that has been prepaid, and Customer expressly waives any right to charge back any amount paid via credit card or other means. All provisions that by their nature should survive termination of the Agreement will do so (including, by way of example and not limitation, payment obligations, indemnification and defence obligations, and duties of confidentiality).
Return and Deletion of Customer Data:
Upon Customer’s written request at any time up to 45 days after termination of the Agreement, ProcessWurks shall provide an export file of Customer Data stored on ProcessWurks’s systems in a commonly used format reasonably determined by ProcessWurks and subject to ProcessWurks’s standard fees for the preparation for such export file. ProcessWurks may, but has no obligation to, maintain or return Customer Data more than 90 days after termination of the Agreement.
Upon Customer’s written request at any time during the Term or up to 90 days after termination of the Agreement, ProcessWurks shall promptly destroy or overwrite Customer Data or Customer’s Confidential Information in ProcessWurks’s possession or under its control, other than Customer Data or Customer’s Confidential Information contained in automatic computer backups or historical archives or that must be retained to fulfil obligations under the Agreement or another agreement with a ProcessWurks Affiliate, for regulatory, legal, or audit purposes, or for compliance with ProcessWurks’s data retention policies.

The receiving party shall protect Confidential Information of the disclosing party from unauthorized access and disclosure using the same degree of care, but in no event less than a reasonable standard of care, that it uses to protect its own Confidential Information of a similar nature. Each receiving party shall promptly notify the disclosing party, without undue delay in accordance with Applicable Laws, of unauthorized access, use, or disclosure of any of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information in the receiving party’s possession or under its control.

Non-competition: Customer acknowledges that ProcessWurks and its Affiliates provide content and performs services of a unique nature that are irreplaceable and that, if Customer shared the ProcessWurks Materials or the Services Work Product with any competitor of ProcessWurks or its Affiliates or other third party, ProcessWurks and its Affiliates would suffer irreparable harm. Accordingly, during the Term and for the one (1) year period thereafter, Customer shall not, directly or indirectly, own, manage, operate, control, be employed or engaged by (whether as an employee, consultant, independent contractor or otherwise, and whether or not for compensation) or render services to any person, firm, corporation or other entity, in whatever form, engaged in any business that competes with the business of ProcessWurks or any of its Affiliates, in any country in which ProcessWurks or its Affiliates conduct business. This provision does not prevent or restrict Customer from (a) owning not more than 2% of the total shares of all classes of stock outstanding of any publicly held entity engaged in such business or (b) rendering services to charitable organizations, as such term is defined in Section 501(c) of the Internal Revenue Code.
INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS AND NO PROFESSIONAL ADVICE.
The parties are independent contractors, and nothing in the Agreement shall be construed as creating a joint venture, partnership, agent, employment or fiduciary relationship between ProcessWurks and Customer. Customer expressly acknowledges that ProcessWurks provides the Services, the ProcessWurks Materials and the Services Work Product for informational purposes and that Customer does not rely upon ProcessWurks, the Services, the ProcessWurks Materials or the Services Work Product for advice regarding appropriate tax treatment. Customer is responsible for the tax policies and tax reporting positions taken by Customer on behalf of its clients. Customer acknowledges and agrees that (i) ProcessWurks is entitled to base its conclusions on and rely on the accuracy and completeness of the Customer Data and assumptions that are furnished by Customer and its Representatives, without any independent investigation or verification, and that their inaccuracy or incompleteness could materially affect ProcessWurks’s conclusions or the Services Work Product and (ii) ProcessWurks will not update the Services Work Product or advice or recommendations after the completion of the applicable Services (including, for example, updates to reflect changes or modifications to applicable law and regulations or to related judicial and administrative interpretations, or for subsequent events or transactions), unless Customer separately engages ProcessWurks to do so in writing.

ProcessWurks makes no representations that ProcessWurks Properties are appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who access or use ProcessWurks Properties from other jurisdictions do so at their own volition and are responsible for compliance with local data security and privacy law.
You agree to indemnify and hold ProcessWurks, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, employees, agents, partners and licensors (collectively, the “ProcessWurks Parties”) harmless from any losses, costs, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) relating to or arising out of: (a) Your Content; (b) your use of, or inability to use, ProcessWurks Properties; (c) your violation of the Terms; (d) your violation of any rights of another party, including any Users; or (e) your violation of any applicable laws, rules or regulations.

Please read this Arbitration Agreement carefully: It is part of your contract with ProcessWurks and affects your rights. It contains procedures for MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.
Applicability of Arbitration Agreement: All claims and disputes (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as set forth below) in connection with the Terms or the use of any product or service provided by ProcessWurks that cannot be resolved informally or in small claims court shall be resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis under the terms of this Arbitration Agreement. Unless otherwise agreed, all arbitration proceedings shall be held in English. This Arbitration Agreement applies to you and ProcessWurks, and to any subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services or goods provided under the Terms.
Notice Requirement and Informal Dispute Resolution: Before either party may seek arbitration, the party must first send to the other party a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”) describing the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and the requested relief. A Notice to ProcessWurks should be sent to: ProcessWurks LLC, Address: 300 TradeCenter, Suite 4410, Woburn, MA 01801, United States. After the Notice is received, you and ProcessWurks may attempt to resolve the claim or dispute informally. If you and ProcessWurks do not resolve the claim or dispute within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, either party may begin an arbitration proceeding. The amount of any settlement offer made by any party may not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator has determined the amount of the award, if any, to which either party is entitled.
Arbitration Rules: Arbitration shall be initiated through the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), an established alternative dispute resolution provider (“ADR Provider”) that offers arbitration as set forth in this section. If AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties shall agree to select an alternative ADR Provider. The rules of the ADR Provider shall govern all aspects of the arbitration, including but not limited to the method of initiating and/or demanding arbitration, except to the extent such rules are in conflict with the Terms. The AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules governing the arbitration are available online at adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitration shall be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator. Any claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is less than Ten Thousand U.S. Dollars (US $10,000.00) may be resolved through binding non-appearance-based arbitration, at the option of the party seeking relief. For claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is Ten Thousand U.S. Dollars (US $10,000.00) or more, the right to a hearing will be determined by the Arbitration Rules. Any hearing will be held in Woburn, MA, unless you reside outside of the United States, and unless the parties agree otherwise. If you reside outside of the U.S., the arbitrator shall give the parties reasonable notice of the date, time and place of any oral hearing. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. If the arbitrator grants you an award that is greater than the last settlement offer that ProcessWurks made to you prior to the initiation of arbitration, ProcessWurks will pay you $1,000 in addition to the award. Each party shall bear its own costs (including attorney’s fees) and disbursements arising out of the arbitration and shall pay an equal share of the fees and costs of the ADR Provider.
Additional Rules for Non-Appearance Based Arbitration: If non-appearance based arbitration is elected, the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or based solely on written submissions; the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration. The arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise agreed by the parties.
Time Limits: If you or ProcessWurks pursue arbitration, the arbitration action must be initiated and/or demanded within the statute of limitations (i.e., the legal deadline for filing a claim) and within any deadline imposed under the AAA Rules for the pertinent claim.
Authority of Arbitrator: If arbitration is initiated, the arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and ProcessWurks, and the dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages, and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the AAA Rules, and the Terms. The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and ProcessWurks.
Waiver of Jury Trial: THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY, instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient and less costly than rules applicable in a court and are subject to very limited review by a court. In the event any litigation should arise between you and ProcessWurks in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, YOU AND PROCESSWURKS WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge.
Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions: ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER.
Confidentiality: All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, including but not limited to the award of the arbitrator and compliance therewith, shall be strictly confidential. The parties agree to maintain confidentiality unless otherwise required by law. This paragraph shall not prevent a party from submitting to a court of law any information necessary to enforce this Agreement, to enforce an arbitration award, or to seek injunctive or equitable relief.
Severability: If any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
Right to Waive: Any or all of the rights and limitations set forth in this Arbitration Agreement may be waived by the party against whom the claim is asserted. Such waiver shall not waive or affect any other portion of this Arbitration Agreement.
Survival of Agreement: This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with ProcessWurks.
Small Claims Court: Notwithstanding the foregoing, either you or ProcessWurks may bring an individual action in small claims court
Emergency Equitable Relief: Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may seek emergency equitable relief before a state or federal court in order to maintain the status quo pending arbitration. A request for interim measures shall not be deemed a waiver of any other rights or obligations under this Arbitration Agreement.
Claims Not Subject to Arbitration: Notwithstanding the foregoing, claims of defamation, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and infringement or misappropriation of the other party’s patent, copyright, trademark or trade secrets shall not be subject to this Arbitration Agreement.
Courts: In any circumstances where the foregoing Arbitration Agreement permits the parties to litigate in court, the parties hereby agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Middlesex County, Massachusetts, for such purpose.

ProcessWurks shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform resulting from causes outside its reasonable control, including, but not limited to, acts of God, war, terrorism, riots, embargos, acts of civil or military authorities, fire, floods, accidents, strikes or shortages of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor or materials. If a Force Majeure event occurs that affects ProcessWurks’s performance of its obligations under these Terms: (a) ProcessWurks will contact you as soon as reasonably possible to notify you; and (b) ProcessWurks’s obligations under these Terms will be suspended and the time for ProcessWurks’s performance of its obligations will be extended for the duration of the Force Majeure event. You may cancel the Services affected by a Force Majeure event which has continued for more than sixty (60) days. To cancel please contact ProcessWurks.
