7.PAYMENT

You or the person designated as the billing contact for Your Kigo account (“Billing Contact”), must provide Kigo with a valid credit card in order to activate Your account. You and/or Billing Contact may authorize Kigo to automatically charge a credit card for all services (including any VAS) that You (and/or Your representatives) request, whether through an Order Form, online through the Kigo Services, or otherwise. Alternatively, You and/or Billing Contact can arrange for pre-payment of at least six months’ estimated charges and pay by ACH bank wire or credit card. Upon receiving notice that Your balance has reached $500 or less, You and/or Billing Contact must send another pre-payment equal to or greater than the first pre-payment. The 10% “credit” for making a pre-pay is only applicable to the initial pre-payment and prepaid amounts are not refundable. Failure to either send additional funds or switch to the credit card option and pay any past due amounts could result in suspension of Your services. You and/or Billing Contact will receive a receipt for all payments processed against the credit card or account by email and/or fax. If paying by credit card, Billing Contact agrees to keep credit card information updated, and to provide Kigo with a new valid account number if the old card is deactivated or does not have sufficient credit available to pay Your fees. Kigo reserves the right to place Your account on hold, suspend Your access to the Kigo Services and/or terminate the applicable Agreement or other services if You are overdue in paying Kigo any amounts due for Kigo Services access or other services You request. If You wish to dispute any fee that Kigo has charged to Billing Contact’s credit card, You agree to discuss such dispute with Kigo and work towards a resolution. You expressly agree not to dispute fees with Your issuing credit card company, which could result in a “chargeback” to Kigo. Declined, refused and/or returned payments may result in a $50.00 service charge payable immediately. Billing Contact and payment information must be kept current at all times and changes provided to Kigo within 30 days of such changes. Notice should be sent to billing@kigo.net.
