Terms of Service
Please read these terms of service (these “Terms”) carefully as they form a contract between you and DigiVie (We or Our) that governs your access and use of: (i) the hosted storage solution provided by DigiVie for online storage, sharing and processing of files, data, text, audio, video, images or other content (collectively, “Content”); (ii) software provided or made available by DigiVie (the “Software”); and, (iii) any written or electronic documentation provided or made available by DigiVie (the “Documentation”) (collectively the “Service(s)”).
By using any of the Services you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you are using the Services on behalf of an organization, you are agreeing to these Terms for that organization and promising to DigiVie that you have the authority to bind that organization to these Terms. In that case, “you” and “your” will refer to that organization. You may use the Services only in compliance with these Terms and only if you have the power to form a contract with DigiVie and are not barred under any applicable laws from doing so. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS, YOU MUST NOT USE THE SERVICE.
1. CHANGES TO THESE TERMS
DigiVie reserves the right to change these Terms at any time in DigiVie’s sole discretion. Any changes will be effective upon posting the revised version of these Terms on the Service. Therefore, we encourage you to check the date of these Terms whenever you visit www.digivie.com/p/terms.htm (the “Site”) to see if these Terms have been updated. Your continued access or use of any portion of the Service constitutes your acceptance of such changes. If you don’t agree to any of the changes, we’re not obligated to keep providing the Service, and you must cancel and stop using the Service. The Services may continue to change over time as we refine and add more features. We may stop, suspend, or modify the Services at any time without prior notice to you.

15. PAYMENTS AND REFUNDS
The fees applicable for Service (“Fees”) are available on request. The price stated for the Service excludes all taxes and charges, unless stated otherwise. You’re responsible for any taxes and for all other charges (for example, data charges and currency exchange settlements). You will pay the Fees in the currency DigiVie quoted for your account. DigiVie reserves the right to change the quoted currency at any time.
In addition to any Fees, you may still incur charges incidental to using the Service, for example, charges for Internet access, data roaming, and other data transmission charges.
You must be authorized to use the payment method that you enter when you create a billing account. You authorize DigiVie to charge you for the Service using your payment method and for any paid feature of the Service that you choose to sign up for or use while these Terms are in force. We may bill: (a) in advance; (b) at the time of purchase; (c) shortly after purchase; or (d) on a recurring basis for subscription Services. Once we have informed you that the Service will be provided indefinitely or automatically renewed, we may automatically renew your Service and charge you for any renewal term.
You must keep all information in your billing account current. You can access and modify your billing account information from your account web portal at www.digivie.com/portal. You may change your payment method at any time. If you tell us to stop using your payment method and we no longer receive payment from you for the paid Service, we may cancel that Service. Your notice to us will not affect charges we submit to your billing account before we reasonably could act on your request.
DigiVie reserves the right to change the price of the Service. If there’s a specific length and price for your Service offer, that price will remain in force for that time. After the offer period ends, your use of the Service will be charged at the new price. If you don’t agree to these changes, you must cancel and stop using the Service via notification to DigiVie through email at email@example.com no later than fourteen (14) days prior to the conclusion of your current payment term, whether monthly, yearly, or otherwise. If you cancel, your Service ends at the end of your current Service period or, if we bill your account on a period basis, at the end of the period in which you canceled. If you fail to cancel as required, we will automatically renew the Service for the same term and will charge you payment information on file with us commencing on the first day of the renewal term.
If payment is not received by DigiVie on the due date, user’s account will be frozen, inaccessible, and all shared links will be turned off until all outstanding payments have been processed by DigiVie. Users retain the responsibility for settling all outstanding balances in a timely manner and maintaining updated billing information. If not complied with, at the end of 90 days, user’s account will be deactivated and all files will no longer be retrievable.
Unless we notify you otherwise, if you’re participating in any trial period offer, you must cancel the Service by the end of the trial period to avoid incurring new charges. If you do not cancel your Service and we have told you the Service will convert to a paid subscription at the end of the trial period, you authorize us to charge your payment method for the Service.
Except as specifically set forth in this section, all Services are prepaid for the period selected (monthly, yearly or otherwise) and are non-refundable. This includes accounts that are renewed.
If you are currently on a free 14-day trial, you may cancel your account, free of charge, at any time until fourteen (14) days after your account was created. (The day of creation constitutes the first day of the 14-day trial.)
Except as prohibited by law, we may assess a late charge if you do not pay on time. You must pay these late charges when we bill you for them. The late charge will be the lesser of 1 percent of the unpaid amount each month or the maximum rate permitted by law. We may use a third party to collect past due amounts. You must pay for all reasonable costs we incur to collect any past due amounts, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and other legal fees and costs. We may suspend or cancel your Service if you fail to pay in full on time.
THESE TERMS AND THE USE OF THE SERVICES AND SOFTWARE WILL BE GOVERNED BY ONTARIO LAW EXCEPT FOR ITS CONFLICTS OF LAWS PRINCIPLES. ALL CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OR THE SERVICES OR SOFTWARE MUST BE LITIGATED EXCLUSIVELY IN THE FEDERAL OR PROVINCIAL COURTS OF OTTAWA, ONTARI, AND BOTH PARTIES CONSENT TO VENUE AND PERSONAL JURISDICTION THERE. These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive agreement between you and DigiVie with respect to the Services, and supersede and replace any other agreements, terms and conditions applicable to the Services. These Terms create no third party beneficiary rights. DigiVie’s failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision is found unenforceable the remaining provisions of the Agreement will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights in these Terms, and any such attempt is void, but DigiVie may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services. DigiVie and you are not legal partners or agents; instead, our relationship is that of independent contractors.
