Subscription, Unlimited Plan, Payments and Fair Use Policy

We are excited to service your computer. Our lowest possible price is offered to care for an average consumer's computer support needs. Our Fair Usage Policy is designed to prevent fraud and abuse by a small number of users. Only the registered device is covered and limited by the plan purchased. Unreasonable services, in excess of twice the average demanded hours, may result in your subscription being suspended or our relationship being terminated. We may provide you with a notice of improper behavior before suspending, terminating or offering an alternative subscription, as we deem appropriate.

Monthly recurring charges for certain services and individual services must be paid in advance. If a credit card is submitted by you for monthly reoccurring or individual services, you agree to authorize the charges for all fees associated with the services, including renewals or upgrade changes as notified.

If any portion of your bill is not paid by the due date for any reason, a late fee on unpaid balances may be charged and your services may also terminate or suspend without notice. In the event third party collection fees are incurred to recover monies due, you agree to reimburse us for all expenses incurred to recover such monies, including legal fees.

This version of the Terms is effective as of June 2012. The Terms together with the Privacy Policy and any applicable license agreements constitute the entire agreement between you and NerdDeck and govern your use of the Services, superseding any prior or contemporaneous agreements between you and NerdDeck. The failure of NerdDeck to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the party's intentions as reflected in the provision and the other provisions of the Terms remain in full force and effect. You may not assign the Terms or any of your rights or obligations under the Terms without NerdDeck's express written consent. The Terms inure to the benefit of NerdDeck's successors, assignees and licensees.
