10. Paid Services
Pulse may offer Services to be paid for on an ongoing and recurring basis (“Monthly Services”) as well as Services that are not recurring but are for the purposes of either getting you set-up with the Services (“Set-up Services”) or consulting services that are requested by you and provided on a one-time or as-used basis (“Consulting Services”), or services related to revenue sharing (“Revenue Sharing”) all of which services are collectively referred to as the “Paid Services”. By completing a Customer Application, including after any free trial period, you agree to pay us the fees and any applicable taxes as set forth in your current Customer Application, or as otherwise agreed in writing in respect of each of the Paid Services on or before the date due as specified in the Customer Application. The fees may include “Monthly Fees”, “Set-Up Fees”, “Consulting Fees” and “Revenue Share”, collectively referred to as the “Total Fees”.
The Total Fees may be paid by cheque, cash, credit card, by electronic transfer or by a money transfer service such as Western Union. If you link a credit card to your account, you authorize us to collect the Total Fees from your linked credit card. Regardless of payment device, you agree to pay the Set-up Fees and the Monthly Fees, until the Service is cancelled or terminated, in the amounts and on the due dates set out in the Customer Application. You also agree to pay any Consulting Fees incurred by you upon receipt of an invoice from Pulse and, in the event Revenue Share becomes payable to Pulse, the amount owing will be determined on a monthly basis and you agree to pay such amount on the due date set out in the Customer Application.
You may cancel the Monthly Services at any time by notifying Pulse with thirty (30) days written notice (the “Notice Period”). If you cancel the Monthly Services, you will continue to have access to that Monthly Service through the end of your Notice Period, but you will not be entitled to a refund or credit for any Monthly or other Fees already due or paid. We reserve the right to change our Monthly Fees upon thirty (30) days’ advance notice to you. Your continued use of the Monthly Services after notice of a change to our Monthly Fees will constitute your agreement to such changes.
In the event any amount of the Total Fees owing by you to Pulse is not paid on its respective due date, Pulse shall consider such amount to be overdue (the “Overdue Amount”). All Overdue Amounts will be subject to interest at the rate of 12% per year, compounded monthly, not in advance from the due date to the date of payment. In the event you are in default of the payment of any of the Total Fees, we reserve the right to (a) suspend your use of the Services; (b) refer the Overdue Amount to a collection agency for collection, in which case you will be liable to us, as liquidated damages, for all the costs of recovery, including a collection agency’s commission, if any, along with their fees; and (c) refer the Overdue Amount to a lawyer for collection, in which case, you will also be liable to pay, as liquidated damages, all reasonable legal fees incurred by us.
11. Modification and Termination

We may add or remove, suspend, stop, delete, discontinue or impose conditions on Services or any feature or aspect of a Service. We will take reasonable steps to notify you of termination or these other types of Service changes by email or at the next time you attempt to access your Customer Account. You may also terminate your obligations under these Terms, the Terms, the Policies and the Additional Terms at any time by deactivating your Customer Account. However, any such termination, suspension or cancellation will not relieve you of any of your obligations to pay any accrued amounts related to the Total Fees up to and including the date of cancellation and Section 12 hereof and our Hardware Policy and Limited Warranty dictate what you are required to do in respect of the Hardware.

You and Pulse agree to arbitrate any and all Disputes by a neutral arbitrator who has the power to award the same damages and relief that a court can.

YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO HAVE YOUR CASE DECIDED BY A JURY AND YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION AGAINST PULSE. If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced (but in no case will there be a class or representative arbitration). All Disputes will be resolved finally and exclusively by binding individual arbitration with a single arbitrator administered by the International Centre for Dispute Resolution Canada (https://www.icdr.org). Any arbitration hearing will occur in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada unless you and Pulse agree to another location or a location ordered by the arbitrator. The arbitrator’s award will be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. We will pay the arbitration fees due to the arbitrator for individual arbitrations brought in accordance with this Section. If you prevail on any claim for which you are legally entitled to legal fees, you may seek to recover those fees from the arbitrator. For any claim where you are seeking relief, we will not seek to have you pay our legal fees, even if fees might otherwise be awarded, unless the arbitrator determines that your claim was frivolous. For purposes of this arbitration provision, references to you and Pulse also include respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors, successors and assigns as well as authorized users or beneficiaries of the Services. Subject to and without waiver of the arbitration provisions above, you agree that any judicial proceedings involving Pulse will be brought in and you hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the provincial or federal courts in the city of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
