Readiness Systems, LLC
Last updated on February 2021
By accessing and using the Website, you agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement. If you do not agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement, you should not use the Website. To the extent you already have access to or are using the Service, you are hereby notified that your continued use of a Service is subject to this Agreement.
If you work for or represent a business, you represent that you are authorized by that business to enter into this Agreement on behalf of that business. You understand that we are relying on the fact that you are authorized to enter into this agreement on behalf of that business. When we use the words "you" or "your" in this Agreement, we refer both to you, individually, and the company you may work for, own or represent.
1. Changes to Subscriber Agreement. We may change the terms of this Agreement at any time by notifying you of the change in writing or electronically (including without limitation, by email or by posting a notice on the Website that the terms have been "updated" or similar words). The changes to this AED Law Center Subscriber Agreement also will appear in this document, which you can access at any time at www.readisys.com or www.aedlawcenter.com. You signify that you agree to be bound by such changes by using the Service after changes are made to this Agreement.
3. Fees and Payments. You agree to pay the subscription fees and any other charges incurred in connection with your access to the Service (including any applicable taxes) at the rates in effect when the charges were incurred. If your subscription includes access to areas containing premium content or services, your access to such areas may be subject to additional fees, terms and conditions, which will be separately disclosed in such areas. We will bill all charges automatically to your credit card through our Stripe.com account. Subscription fees will be billed at the beginning of your subscription or any renewal. Unless we state in writing otherwise, all fees and charges are nonrefundable. We may change the fees and charges then in effect, or add new fees or charges, by giving you notice in advance, which may be via email or regular mail.
4. Renewal and Cancellation. Your subscription will renew automatically, unless it is cancelled in accordance with this Section. For annual subscriptions, we will notify you via email of the pending renewal of your subscription at least 30 days prior to the date your subscription renews, except as otherwise required by law. For all subscriptions, you must cancel your subscription before it renews in order to avoid billing of subscription fees for the renewal term to your credit card. You can cancel your subscription before it renews by going into your Account Settings and clicking Cancel Subscription. You may not cancel your subscription in the middle of a subscription term; cancellation by you of your subscription will become effective at the end of the then current subscription term. We may cancel your subscription at any time if you breach the terms of this Agreement by notifying you.
5. Exceptions for Various Types of Subscribers. If your access to the Service is provided by, or through your business or employer, or if you have paid for access to the Service in connection with your purchase of consulting services or other products or services from Readiness Systems, or purchased your subscription to the Service through a distributor or sales agent rather than from us directly, some or all of the "Fees and Payments" and "Renewal and Cancellation" terms may not apply to you. Please contact your employer, business, the distributor or sales agent, as applicable, or our Customer Service department at firstname.lastname@example.org for details. If you access the Service as part of a free trial or otherwise without becoming a subscriber, you are hereby notified that all of the terms and conditions of this AED Law Center Subscriber Agreement except the section labeled "Fees and Payments" and "Renewal and Cancellation" apply to your use and access of the Service.
