Account Holder Fees will be billed in accordance with such pricing terms. If applicable, the credit card each Account Holder maintains on file with Polytechnica or its billing partner in the applicable Service Account will be automatically charged. Account Holders are responsible for maintaining up to date credit card information in such Service Account. Unless otherwise agreed by Polytechnica and Account Holders, all fees are payable in U.S. Dollars. Late payments of fees may bear interest at the rate of one and one half percent (1.5%) per month (or the highest rate permitted by applicable law, if less). Account Holder Fees are exclusive of taxes or other charges. Each Account Holder is responsible for paying all taxes and government or other charges, and all reasonable expenses and attorneys’ fees Polytechnica incurs collecting late fees. Polytechnica reserves the right to suspend or terminate use of the Service or applicable Service Account (and access to any related Content) if an Account Holder fails to pay any fees due in connection with use of the Service or applicable Service Account. Any outstanding fees are immediately due and payable upon termination of use of the Service or applicable Service Account for any reason.
4.2 To the greatest extent permitted by applicable law, and without affecting any Account Holder's credit card issuer’s rights, each Account Holder hereby waives all claims relating to fees unless such Account Holder notifies Polytechnica of any dispute or other fee-related claim within thirty (30) calendar days of the fees being charged to such credit card.
4.3 To the greatest extent permitted by applicable law, any refunds of fees are at the sole discretion of Polytechnica, and refunds will only be provided in the form of a credit against future fees for the Service.
