SERVICES. As part of the Services, BeeCanvas offers the Platform, which makes available online whiteboards (each, a “Canvas”) designed to allow users to more easily collaborate on projects. Your access to and use of certain Services available through the Platform may be subject to separate license agreements and terms and conditions, which will be presented to you upon initial access and use. By using the Services, you acknowledge that you understand that the Services are evolving. BeeCanvas may add, modify, or remove application programming interfaces, widgets, and other tools, documentation, and materials from the Services at any time without notice to you. Your use of any aspects of the Services is subject to the terms of this Agreement.
2.1 Account Registration. To obtain access to the Services, you may be required to become a Registered User. A “Registered User” is a user of the Platform who has registered an account (“Account”) with BeeCanvas. You may be required to provide certain information about yourself as prompted by the account registration form, such as your name, company name, and e-mail address. If you are an employee or other authorized user of a customer (“Customer”), then the user with administrative credentials for the customer’s Account (the “Authorized Account Administrator”) may have to send you an invitation to join or otherwise approve your registration. If you are the Authorized Account Administrator designated by a Customer, then you may be assigned different permissions than other end users and you represent and warrant that you will only use the features and functionality of your Account as authorized by the Customer. When registering with BeeCanvas, you must: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself and (b) maintain and promptly update your registration or profile data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Account log-in information and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your Account. You agree to immediately notify BeeCanvas of any unauthorized use, or suspected unauthorized use of your Account or any other breach of security. BeeCanvas cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above requirements.

We may allow you to access the Services through or integrate with a third-party platform (“Third-Party Platform”) as part of the functionality of the Services, by linking your Account (via an application programming interface or otherwise) with your accounts on those Third-Party Platforms (“Third-Party Accounts”), as is permitted under the applicable terms and conditions that govern your use of each Third-Party Account. You represent that you are entitled to disclose your Third-Party Account login information to BeeCanvas and/or grant BeeCanvas access to your Third-Party Account (including, but not limited to, for use for the purposes described herein) without breach by you of any of the terms and conditions that govern your use of the applicable Third-Party Accounts and without obligating BeeCanvas to pay any fees or making BeeCanvas subject to any usage limitations imposed by such third-party service providers. Depending on the Third-Party Accounts you choose and subject to the privacy settings that you have set in such Third-Party Accounts, personally identifiable information that you post to your Third-Party Accounts may be available on and through your Account on the Services. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR THIRD-PARTY ACCOUNTS IS GOVERNED SOLELY BY YOUR AGREEMENT(S) WITH SUCH THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS, AND BEECANVAS DISCLAIMS ANY LIABILITY FOR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION THAT MAY BE PROVIDED TO IT BY SUCH THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS IN VIOLATION OF THE PRIVACY SETTINGS THAT YOU HAVE SET IN SUCH THIRD-PARTY ACCOUNTS.

At the end of the specified period, your use of the Platform will expire and any further use of the Platform is prohibited unless you pay the Service Subscription Fee (as defined below).
8.2 Payment. We may charge for certain tools or features and functionality of the Services, and certain Accounts require payment of a subscription (e.g., Business Accounts and Corporate Accounts). You agree to pay all fees or charges to your Account in accordance with the fees, charges and billing terms in effect at the time a fee or charge is due and payable. You (or the Organization) must provide BeeCanvas with a valid credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or any other issuer accepted by us) or bank account information (“Payment Provider”), as a condition to signing up for Services for which we charge. With respect to any transactions made by you through the Services, your Payment Provider agreement governs your use of the designated payment method, and you must refer to that agreement and not the Agreement to determine your rights and liabilities. By providing BeeCanvas with your credit card number and associated payment information, you agree that BeeCanvas is authorized to immediately invoice your Account for all fees and charges due and payable to BeeCanvas hereunder and that no additional notice or consent is required. You agree to immediately notify BeeCanvas of any change in your billing address or the credit card used for payment hereunder. BeeCanvas reserves the right at any time to change its prices and billing methods, either immediately upon posting through the Services.
8.3 Third-Party Payment Processor. For online payments and/or automated clearing house (ACH) payouts within the United States, we use the payment services of Stripe (https://stripe.com/). We may use other third-party payment processors to process payments outside the United States. We do not process, record or maintain your credit card or bank account information and we will share transaction data with our payment services providers only to the extent necessary for the purposes of processing your payments, refunding such payments and dealing with complaints and queries relating to such payments and refunds. For more information on how payments are handled, or to understand the data security and privacy afforded such information, please refer to https://stripe.com/privacy.
8.4 Service Subscription Fees. You or your Organization will be responsible for payment of the applicable fee for any Services (each, a “Service Subscription Fee”) at the time you subscribe to paid Services and select your pricing package through your Account (each, a “Service Commencement Date”). Except as set forth in the Agreement, all Service Subscription Fees are non-refundable.
8.5 Automatic Renewal. Your subscription will continue indefinitely until terminated in accordance with the Agreement. After your initial subscription period, and again after any subsequent subscription period, your subscription will automatically commence on the first day following the end of such period (each a “Renewal Commencement Date”) and continue for an additional equivalent period, at BeeCanvas’s then-current price for such subscription. You agree that your Account will be subject to this automatic renewal feature unless you cancel your subscription at least thirty (30) days prior to the Renewal Commencement Date (or in the event that you receive a notice from BeeCanvas that your subscription will be automatically renewed, you will have thirty days from the date of the BeeCanvas notice), by logging into your Account and going to the “Payment” page of your “Account Settings” page. If you do not wish for your Account to renew automatically, or if you want to change or terminate your subscription, please make this selection by logging into your Account and visiting the “Payment” page of your “Account Settings” page, or contact BeeCanvas at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you cancel your subscription, you may use your subscription until the end of your then-current subscription term; your subscription will not be renewed after your then-current term expires. However, you will not be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then-current subscription period. By subscribing, you authorize BeeCanvas to charge your Payment Provider now, and again at the beginning of any subsequent subscription period. Upon renewal of your subscription, if BeeCanvas does not receive payment from your Payment Provider, (a) you agree to pay all amounts due on your Account upon demand and/or (b) you agree that BeeCanvas may either terminate or suspend your subscription and continue to attempt to charge your Payment Provider until payment is received (upon receipt of payment, your Account will be activated and for purposes of automatic renewal, your new subscription commitment period will begin as of the day payment was received).
8.6 Taxes. The payments required under this Section 8 do not include any Sales Tax that may be due in connection with the Services provided under this Agreement. If BeeCanvas determines it has a legal obligation to collect a Sales Tax from you in connection with this Agreement, BeeCanvas shall collect such Sales Tax in addition to the payments required under Section 8 of this Agreement. If any Services, or payments for any Services, under the Agreement are subject to any Sales Tax in any jurisdiction and you have not remitted the applicable Sales Tax to BeeCanvas, you will be responsible for the payment of such Sales Tax and any related penalties or interest to the relevant tax authority, and you will indemnify BeeCanvas for any liability or expense BeeCanvas may incur in connection with such Sales Taxes. Upon BeeCanvas’s request, you will provide it with official receipts issued by the appropriate taxing authority, or other such evidence that you have paid all applicable taxes. For purposes of this section, “Sales Tax” shall mean any sales or use tax and any other tax measured by sales proceeds that is the functional equivalent of a sales tax where the applicable taxing jurisdiction does not otherwise impose a sales or use tax.
8.7 Withholding Taxes. You agree to make all payments of fees to BeeCanvas free and clear of, and without reduction for, any withholding taxes. Any such taxes imposed on payments of fees to BeeCanvas will be your sole responsibility, and you will provide BeeCanvas with official receipts issued by the appropriate taxing authority, or such other evidence as we may reasonably request, to establish that such taxes have been paid.
8.8 Disputes. You may dispute a payment through our payment processor, Stripe in accordance with Stripe’s terms and conditions available at https://stripe.com/legal.
