a.Paid Services.Signing up for a CloseBuy Business User account has fees associated with it ("Paid Service"). You will have the opportunity to review and accept the fees that you will be charged before using our Paid Service. We may change fees at any time. Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in Nigerian Naira.

b.Payment Information.You are solely responsible for paying all fees and applicable taxes associated with your CloseBuy Service account in a timely manner with a valid payment method. By electing to purchase or otherwise use a Paid Service, you authorize CloseBuy or its third party payment processors to charge the credit card or other payment method identified by you ("Payment Method"), which you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use, all applicable fees for that Paid Service, including all applicable taxes. For purchases of one-time Paid Services (i.e., not subscriptions), your Payment Method will be billed for that Paid Service on the date that you make the purchase.

c.Subscriptions.For purchases of subscriptions to Paid Services:

1.Your"Subscription Billing Date"is the date when you purchase your first subscription to a Paid Service. For example, if you purchase your first subscription to a Paid Service on January 10th: (1) your Subscription Billing Date for your first monthly subscription and all other monthly subscriptions you purchase is the 10th of each month, (2) your Subscription Billing Date for your first annual subscription is January 10th of each year, and (3) your Subscription Billing Date for all subsequent purchases of annual subscriptions will be the next soonest 10th monthly calendar day after your date of purchase. Your Payment Method will be charged automatically on the Subscription Billing Date all applicable fees for the next month or year, as applicable.

2.For any subscription to a Paid Service that you purchase after your Subscription Billing Date is established, your Payment Method will first be charged a pro-rata amount of the subscription fee for the number of days between the purchase date and the applicable Subscription Billing Date. Your Payment Method will then be charged the full periodic subscription fee for the next month or year, as applicable, on each Subscription Billing Date thereafter (or on the last day of the calendar month, if the last day of the calendar month occurs before the Subscription Billing Date for that month).

d.Termination of Subscriptions. For any subscription to a Paid Service, that subscription will continue unless and until you cancel your subscription or we terminate it. You must cancel your subscription before it renews in order to avoid billing of the next period's (i.e., month?s or year?s) subscription fees to your Payment Method. We will bill the periodic subscription fee to the Payment Method you provide to us during registration (or to a different Payment Method if you change your account information).

e.Third Parties and Fee Collection.You acknowledge and agree that any credit card and related billing and payment information that you provide to CloseBuy may be shared by CloseBuy with companies who work on CloseBuy?s behalf, such as payment processors or credit agencies, solely for the purpose of checking credit, effecting payment to CloseBuy and servicing your account. The terms of your payment will be based on your chosen Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and the financial institution providing such Payment Method. For certain Payment Methods, the issuer of your Payment Method may charge you a foreign transaction fee or related charges. Check with your bank and credit card issuers for details. If your Payment Method for any Paid Service fails or your account is past due, (i) you agree to pay all amounts due on your CloseBuy account upon demand, (ii) CloseBuy may collect fees owed using other collection mechanisms (this includes charging other payment methods on file with us) and (iii) CloseBuy reserves the right to either suspend or terminate your access to one or more CloseBuy Services or your account with CloseBuy. Upon any such termination, you will remain obligated to pay all outstanding fees and charges relating to your account and your use of the CloseBuy Service before termination.

f.Refunds.Any fees charged to your account are non-refundable except as expressly stated in these Terms. You agree to submit any dispute regarding any charge to your account in writing to CloseBuy within thirty (30) days of the charge, otherwise that dispute will be waived and the charge will be final and not subject to challenge. Refunds (if any) made pursuant to a dispute, are at the discretion of CloseBuy.

g.Taxes.You are responsible for paying any governmental taxes imposed on your use of the CloseBuy Services, including sales, use, or value added taxes. If requested, you will promptly furnish to CloseBuy the applicable receipts or certificates regarding such remittances as soon as reasonably practicable. To the extent that CloseBuy is obligated to collect such taxes, CloseBuy will charge your Payment Method or otherwise add the applicable to your billing account.
