All such additional terms are hereby incorporated by reference into this Agreement.

In addition, there are additional terms that are specific to the BJN Services or Plan being ordered; please see the “Plan-specific Terms” below.

 

1. PAYMENT, CANCELLATION and TERM

You may purchase either an annual or a monthly subscription plan. Subscription plans purchased online may only be paid using a credit card or EFT. You authorize BJN to bill your payment instrument in advance on a periodic basis in accordance with the terms of your subscription plan (monthly or annually). You are responsible to provide and maintain valid and updated credit card information or other payment information. If your payment instrument fails, your access to the Services will be terminated. You are responsible for all taxes associated with the Services other than U.S.-taxes based on BJN’s income.

Your subscription will automatically renew and your payment instrument will be automatically charged every month (if you purchased a monthly subscription plan) or each year (if you purchased an annual subscription plan), unless you cancel before the end of the current subscription period. You can cancel by contacting BlueJeans’ Customer Support by calling (408) 791-2830 or emailing support@bluejeans.com, and the cancellation will take effect the day after the last day of the current subscription period (i.e., if on a monthly plan, at the end of the monthly period; if on an annual plan, at the end of the 12 month period from your Services start date). Charges are not refunded or prorated if service is terminated or modified before your billing cycle ends.

Service begins as soon as your initial payment is processed. If you have selected a monthly subscription plan, you will be charged the rate stated at the time of purchase, every month, until you or we cancel. If you have selected an annual plan, you will be charged the rate stated at the time of purchase, every year, until you or we cancel. BJN may change the pricing for your plan at the end of a billing cycle (i.e., if on a monthly plan, at the end of the monthly subscription term; if on an annual plan, at the end of the 12 month subscription term), but we will always notify you beforehand. Your payments are non-refundable and your service will continue until the end of that month’s billing period if on a monthly plan and until the end of the 12 month subscription term if you are on an annual plan. If you received any promotional pricing or features, please see the Promotion-specific terms and the Promotions section herein for promotion-specific details.

In addition to any other available remedies, BJN may terminate this Agreement and your access to the Service if you violate any of the terms, conditions and/or obligations of this Agreement.
 

2. PROMOTIONAL PRICING AND/OR FEATURES.

If you have received promotional pricing or a promotional feature as a part of your subscription plan, you will receive that pricing or that feature only for the duration of the initial term of the subscription plan you purchased (i.e., either one month or one year) unless a different period of time is explicitly stated within the offer or on the communication confirming your purchase. Thereafter, your subscription plan will renew at BJN’s then current standard pricing and/or with the standard features for the applicable subscription plan unless terminated in accordance with this Agreement. BJN may increase the amount of time the promotional pricing and/or promotional feature is available to you, in its discretion. If your subscription plan is cancelled (whether by you or BJN) or interrupted and you re-subscribe at a later date, you will no longer be able to license your subscription plan at the promotional prices.
