Kognitive may consider certain refund requests on a case-by-case basis and will be granted at the sole discretion of the Company.

Subscriptions

Payments Subscriptions

Some of Our Services are available only with a paid Subscription. You will be billed in advance on a recurring and periodic basis (such as monthly, quarterly or annually), depending on the type of Subscription plan you select when purchasing the Service.

At the end of each period, Your Subscription will automatically renew under the exact same conditions unless You cancel it or the Company cancels it.

Subscription Cancellations

You may cancel Your Subscription renewal either through Your Account settings page or by contacting the Company in writing. You will not receive a refund for the fees You already paid for Your current Subscription period, and You will be able to access the Service until the end of Your current Subscription period.

Billing

You shall provide the Company with accurate and complete billing information including full name, address, state, zip code, telephone number, and a valid payment method information.

Should automatic billing fail to occur for any reason, the Company will issue an electronic invoice indicating that you must proceed manually, within a certain deadline date, with the full payment corresponding to the billing period as indicated on the invoice.

Fee Changes

The Company, in its sole discretion and at any time, may modify the Subscription fees. Any Subscription fee change will become effective at the end of the then-current Subscription period.

The Company will provide You with reasonable prior notice of any change in Subscription fees to give You an opportunity to terminate Your Subscription before such change becomes effective.

Your continued use of the Service after the Subscription fee change comes into effect constitutes Your agreement to pay the modified Subscription fee amount.

Term and Termination

Term and Schedule

Any dates detailed in the Proposal for provision or completion of the Service by the Company are estimates only. The schedule for the delivery of the Service may change during delivery. In no event shall the Company be liable for any delay in providing the Service.

Suspension of Service

Kognitive may suspend provision of Service in the event of delay or non-payment of any fees due for seven (7) or more calendar days. Kognitive will not be responsible for any liability or damage suffered by the Client as a result of the suspension or termination in accordance with this Agreement. The Client may suspend the Service before the Agreement term has been reached for a maximum of three (3) months. The Client must request the suspension in writing. Any unused Service which has been paid by the Client will expire three (3) months after the date the Client issues the suspension notice.

Termination

Either party may terminate this Agreement (a) at any time by providing seven (7) days written notice to the other party, (b) on notice to the other if the other enters into any liquidation, insolvency or similar proceedings, or convenes a meeting for placing itself into administration or liquidation, (c) if either party is affected by a Force Majeure which cannot be removed, overcome or abated within three (3) months; or (d) if the other party is in material breach of any of its obligations hereunder and, where such breach is remediable, fails to remedy such breach within seven (7) business days of notice to do so.

Upon termination, each party will return to the other any confidential information or proprietary materials of the other.

If the Client issues a termination notice, the Client shall be obliged to pay the Company a compensation equal to the agreed fees apportioned to the Service already rendered by the Company, plus any additional costs incurred by the Company as a result of said early termination.

If the Company issues a termination notice, the Client shall be liable for payment of an amount corresponding to the fees due for the Service already performed, while being entitled to receive the (preliminary) results of the services already performed.

Limitation of Liability

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event shall the Company be liable for any special, incidental, indirect, or consequential damages whatsoever (including, but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, loss of data or other information, for business interruption, loss of goodwill or other intangible losses such as the procurement of substitute services). In no event will either party’s liability under this Agreement exceed the amount paid by Client for the Service. These limitations do not apply to damage due to fraud, wilful misconduct, death, or personal injury.

Law, Jurisdiction, Disputes Resolution

This Agreement shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of Victoria, Australia. All claims and conflicts in relation to the Service and this Agreement will be submitted exclusively to the courts of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, to the exclusion of any other. The parties agree to good faith negotiations during a period of 30 days from the date of notice of breach (other than for non-payment) in order to seek amicable settlement of any conflict prior to issuing any legal proceedings.

Severability and Waiver

Severability

If any provision of these Terms is held to be unenforceable or invalid, such provision will be changed and interpreted to accomplish the objectives of such provision to the greatest extent possible under applicable law and the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect.

Waiver

Except as provided herein, the failure to exercise a right or to require performance of an obligation under these Terms shall not affect a party's ability to exercise such right or require such performance at any time thereafter, nor shall the waiver of a breach constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach.

Changes to These Terms and Conditions

We reserve the right, at Our sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time. If a revision is material, We will make reasonable efforts to provide at least 30 days notice prior to any new terms taking effect. What constitutes a material change will be determined at Our sole discretion.

By continuing to access or use Our Service after those revisions become effective, You agree to be bound by the revised terms.
