We are not responsible for any such problems, interruptions, any ongoing obligation to offer our Services or any functionality, or any damages resulting therefrom. We reserve the right to modify, suspend or discontinue all or any part of our Services at any time for any reason without liability to you.

Fees

We will charge you a fee based on your account plan by charging your payment method in advance for the subscription term you have agreed following your account’s activation. Should you upgrade or downgrade your account plan, your payment method will be charged for your new billing rate. At the time of your upgrade or downgrade, your prior account plan charges will be prorated based on the number of days under the prior account plan. Your payment method will then be charged at your new billing rate for the new subscription term thereafter. All payment obligations are non-cancelable and all amounts paid are non-refundable. We do not provide refunds or credits for less than 14 days of Services, or for a period when your account is open but you do not use our Services. The fees do not include any taxes, duties, fees or other amounts assessed or imposed by any government authority, for which you are responsible except for taxes imposed on LinkkPro’s income. You agree to pay or reimburse us for all such amounts upon demand, or provide evidence of payment or exemption. We reserve the right to change our fees and billing methods upon 30-days notice. We will notify you of any fees changes by, for example, sending a message to the email address associated with your account, or posting on our Services or website. For existing contracts for which fees have been already received by us, we will implement the price changes during the next renewal period.

Confidentiality

We are committed to protecting the confidentiality of your Confidential Information (as defined below). The access, disclosure and use of Confidential Information and any other rights and obligations regarding such information shall be solely and exclusively governed by these Terms, except as otherwise provided in a separate confidentiality agreement between LinkkPro and you. All confidentiality obligations shall remain in force and effect for the Term plus one year.

You or LinkkPro (the “Disclosing Party”) may from time to time during the Term disclose to the other (the “Receiving Party”) the Disclosing Party’s confidential, proprietary and/or non-public information, materials or knowledge that is designated as confidential or that reasonably should be understood to be confidential given the nature of the information, materials or knowledge and/or the circumstances of disclosure (the “Confidential Information”). For clarity, your Registration Data and Customer Data constitutes your Confidential Information, and our Services, Services documentation, intellectual property and pricing information constitutes our Confidential Information. The Receiving Party agrees to protect the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information from unauthorized access, disclosure or use in the same manner that the Receiving Party protects its own confidential or proprietary information of a similar nature but with no less than reasonable care. The Receiving Party will only access and use the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information in connection with performing these Terms (or as expressly authorized by the Disclosing Party in writing), and will disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information only to the employees and contractors of the Receiving Party who have a need to know the Confidential Information for purposes of performing these Terms (or for other purposes as expressly authorized by the Disclosing Party in writing) and who are under a duty of confidentiality no less restrictive than the Receiving Party’s duty hereunder.

The Receiving Party’s obligations with respect to Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party will terminate if the Receiving Party can document that such information (i) was already lawfully known to the Receiving Party at the time of disclosure by the Disclosing Party free from any obligation of confidence, (ii) was disclosed to the Receiving Party by a third party who had the right to make such disclosure without any confidentiality restrictions, (iii) is, or through no fault of the Receiving Party has become, generally available to the public or (iv) was independently developed by the Receiving Party without access to, or use of, the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information. In addition, the Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to the extent compelled by law or a court or other judicial or administrative body, provided that the Receiving Party notifies the Disclosing Party of such compelled disclosure promptly and in writing (to the extent legally permitted) and cooperates with the Disclosing Party, at the Disclosing Party’s reasonable request and expense, in any lawful action to contest or limit the scope of such required disclosure.

The Receiving Party will return to the Disclosing Party all Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party in the Receiving Party’s possession or control and permanently erase all electronic copies of such Confidential Information promptly upon the written request of the Disclosing Party. At the Disclosing Party’s request, the Receiving Party will certify in writing that it has fully complied with its obligations under this Section.
