6. Fees and Payment Terms.
6.1 Fees. To the extent the Services or any portion thereof is made available for any fee, you will be required to select a payment plan in your Order and provide ReNew Group information regarding your credit card or other payment instrument. You represent and warrant to ReNew Group that such information is true and that you are authorized to use the payment instrument. You will promptly update your account information with any changes (for example, a change in your billing address or credit card expiration date) that may occur. You agree to pay ReNew Group the amount that is specified in the payment plan (as well as any applicable taxes) in accordance with the terms of such plan and these Terms of Service. You hereby authorize ReNew Group to bill your payment instrument in accordance with the terms of the applicable payment plan (as well as any applicable taxes) until you deactivate your account, and you further agree to pay any charges so incurred. If you dispute any charges you must provide written notice to ReNew Group within fourteen (14) days after the date that ReNew Group charges you. ReNew Group reserves the right to change ReNew Group's prices. Your continued use of the Services after the price change becomes effective constitutes your agreement to pay the changed amount.
6.2 Recurring Subscriptions. All subscription-based Services automatically renew according to the subscription plan (e.g., monthly or annually)). You authorize ReNew Group to maintain your account information and charge that account automatically upon the renewal of the Services you choose with no further action required by you. In the event that ReNew Group is unable to charge your account as authorized by you when you enrolled in the Services, ReNew Group, may, in its sole discretion: (i) bill you for the Services and suspend your access to the Services until payment is received, and/or (ii) seek to update your account information through third party sources (i.e., your bank or a payment processor) to continue charging your account as authorized by you. For the avoidance of doubt, a “Masterclass” remains accessible for the period of time set forth in the Order. The Masterclass is not a subscription-based Service, and therefore does not auto renew at the end of the course period.
6.3 No Refunds. Payments are nonrefundable and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods. You may cancel the Services at any time, but if you cancel your Services before the end of your Term, ReNew Group will not refund any fees already paid to ReNew Group for the cancelled Services (except as provided in Section 7.2). Following any cancellation, however, you will continue to have access to the Services through the end of the Term. At any time, and for any reason, ReNew Group may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of ReNew Group’s users ("credits"). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at ReNew Group’s sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate ReNew Group to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance.
6.4 Invoices. ReNew Group will charge you fees for the Services in advance of providing the Services, as set forth in the applicable Order. ReNew Group will charge you for Professional Service on a time and materials basis monthly in arrears unless otherwise set forth in the applicable Order. Payment is due within thirty (30) days of receipt of the applicable invoice. ReNew Group may suspend the Services or terminate these Terms of Service for non-payment by you as set forth in Section 7.2. You will pay a late fee equal to one-and-one-half percent (1.5%) per month or the maximum amount allowed by law, if less, on all past due amounts. You are also liable for all costs of collection incurred by ReNew Group for past due sums, including without limitation, collection agency fees, reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs.
6.5 Taxes and Other Charges. All amounts payable by you are exclusive of applicable taxes and duties, including VAT and applicable sales tax. You shall be responsible for and shall pay all such taxes and indemnify ReNew Group from any liability thereon. If you are legally entitled to an exemption from any sales, use, or similar transaction tax, you are responsible for providing ReNew Group with legally-sufficient tax exemption certificates for each taxing jurisdiction. If any deduction or withholding is required by law, you will notify ReNew Group and will pay ReNew Group any additional amounts necessary to ensure that the net amount of payment that ReNew Group receives, after any deduction and withholding, equals the amount of payment ReNew Group would have received if no deduction or withholding had been required. Additionally, you will provide ReNew Group with documentation showing that the withheld and deducted amounts have been paid to the relevant taxing authority. In no event shall you be responsible for any state or federal income tax incurred by ReNew Group, due to relationship with you.
