Payment.

If you choose to enroll in an auto-pay option pursuant to the Services, you grant us (either directly or through an affiliate or agent) the authority to initiate monthly recurring ACH direct-debit or credit/debit card payments from your account(s) at the financial institution(s) provided by you to us for the amounts indicated on your bills for the Services and the services under your Subscription Agreement, as applicable. You further authorize us (either directly or through an affiliate or agent) to initiate an adjusting or correcting entry to such payments as necessary. This authorization is for all payments due under your Subscription Agreement and any other Services for which you enroll in auto-pay. This authorization remains in full force and effect until the termination of these Terms unless terminated by you pursuant to the terms below.

You agree to notify us of any changes in your account information or termination of this authorization at least ten (10) business days prior to the next draft date in order for such change to be in effect as of such draft date.  

Recurring ACH direct-debit or credit/debit card payments shall be drafted monthly (unless otherwise indicated in the Services or your Subscription Agreement), and we shall provide email notifications and/or online access to the amount(s) and due date(s) for such payments. If the above noted payment date does not fall on a business day, you understand that the payment may be executed on the next business day. Transaction fees may apply for ACH direct-debit or credit/debit card payments.

In the case of a transaction being rejected for non-sufficient funds or declined credit you understand that we may at our discretion attempt to process the charge additional times within thirty (30) days. We and the Developer, as applicable, are not responsible for any overdraft fees, over-the-limit fees, or insufficient fund charges (including finance charges, late fees, or similar charges) charged to you by your financial institution from your failure to maintain a balance in your account or have available credit in the account that is sufficient to process our payment. We reserve the right to charge you for any overdraft fees, over the limit fees, or insufficient fund charges (including finance charges, late fees, or similar charges) assessed to us that result from your failure to maintain a balance or credit in your account that is sufficient to process your payment. 

We and the Developer, as applicable, are not liable for any loss caused by any unauthorized use of your account information or other method of payment information by a third party.

No payments due to us or the Developer will be considered “paid” until we or the Developer, as applicable, receive the funds in full.

Any disputes should be first brought to our attention by contacting us at the contact phone number or email address below.

Dispute Resolution and Arbitration

General. This Section applies to any Dispute except for Disputes relating to the enforcement or validity of our intellectual property rights. The term “Dispute” means any dispute, action or other controversy between you and us concerning these Terms, the Services or any product, service or information we make available to you, whether in contract, warranty, tort, statute, regulation, ordinance or any other legal or equitable basis. “Dispute” will be given the broadest possible meaning allowable under law. In the event of a Dispute, you or we must give the other a Notice of Dispute, which is a written statement that sets forth the name, address and contact information of the party giving it, the facts giving rise to the Dispute, and the relief requested. You must send any Notice of Dispute by U.S. Mail to Solstice Power Technologies, Inc., 186 Alewife Brook Pkwy #1048, Cambridge, MA 02138. We will send any Notice of Dispute to you by U.S. Mail to your address if we have it, or otherwise to your email address. You and we will attempt to resolve any Dispute through informal negotiation within sixty (60) days from the date the Notice of Dispute is sent. After sixty (60) days, either you or we may commence arbitration. You may also litigate any Dispute in small claims court in your county of residence or Boston, MA, if the Dispute meets all requirements to be heard in the small claims court. You may litigate in small claims court whether or not you negotiated informally first.

Binding Arbitration. If you and we do not resolve any Dispute by informal negotiation or in small claims court, any other effort to resolve the Dispute will be conducted exclusively by binding arbitration, as further described in this section, before a neutral arbitrator, whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the Federal Arbitration Act. Any court with jurisdiction over the parties may enforce the arbitrator’s award.

Class Action Waiver. To the maximum extent permitted under applicable law, any proceedings to resolve or litigate any Dispute in any forum will be conducted solely on an individual basis. Neither you nor we will seek to have any Dispute heard as a class action or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. No arbitration or proceeding will be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to all affected arbitrations or proceedings. If this waiver is found to be illegal or unenforceable as to all or some parts of a Dispute, then it won’t apply to those parts. Instead, those parts will be severed and proceed in a court of law, with the remaining parts proceeding in arbitration.

Arbitration Procedure. Any arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules. You and we each agree to commence arbitration only in Boston, MA, USA. You may request a telephonic or in-person hearing by following the AAA rules. In a Dispute involving $10,000 or less, any hearing will be telephonic unless the arbitrator finds good cause to hold an in-person hearing instead. The arbitrator may award the same damages to you individually as a court could. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only to you individually, and only to the extent required to satisfy your individual claim. These Terms govern to the extent they conflict with the arbitrators’ commercial rules. The arbitrator may award compensatory damages, but shall NOT be authorized to award non-economic damages, such as for emotional distress, or pain and suffering or punitive or indirect, incidental or consequential damages. Each party shall bear its own attorneys’ fees, cost and disbursements arising out of the arbitration, and shall pay an equal share of the fees and costs of the arbitrator and AAA; however, the arbitrator may award to the prevailing party reimbursement of its reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs (including, for example, expert witness fees and travel expenses), and/or the fees and costs of the arbitrator. Within fifteen (15) calendar days after conclusion of the arbitration, the arbitrator shall issue a written award and a written statement of decision describing the material factual findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. Judgment on the award may be entered by any court of competent jurisdiction. The parties waive their right to commence any action or judicial proceeding in connection with a Dispute hereunder, except for purposes of: (a) recognition and/or enforcement of the arbitration award or any other decision by the arbitral tribunal, (b) obliging the other party to participate in the arbitration proceedings, (c) requesting any type of conservative or interim measure in connection with the Dispute prior to the constitution of the arbitral tribunal, (d) requesting the appearance of witnesses and/or experts, and/or (e) requesting that any information and/or documentation discovery be complied with. By agreeing to this binding arbitration provision, you understand that you are waiving certain rights and protections which may otherwise be available if a claim or Dispute were determined by litigation in court, including, without limitation, the right to seek or obtain certain types of damages precluded by this arbitration provision, the right to a jury trial, certain rights of appeal, the right bring a claim as a class member in any purported class or representative proceeding, and the right to invoke formal rules of procedure and evidence.

Claims or Disputes. To the extent permitted by applicable law, any claim or Dispute under these Terms must be filed within one (1) year from the date of the cause of action. If a claim or Dispute is not filed within one (1) year, such claim is permanently barred.

Equitable Relief. You agree that we would be irreparably damaged if these Terms were not specifically enforced. Therefore, in addition to any other remedy we may have at law, and notwithstanding our agreement to arbitrate Disputes, we are entitled without bond, other security, or proof of damages, to seek appropriate equitable remedies with respect to your violation of these Terms in any court of competent jurisdiction.

Entire Agreement; Severability; No Waiver; Assignment.  

These Terms, together with our Privacy Policy, each as may be amended from time to time, constitute the entire agreement between you and us regarding the Site and Services. Neither the course of conduct between us nor trade practice shall act to modify these Terms. 

We will not be in default or otherwise liable for any delay in or failure of our performance under these Terms if such delay or failure arises by any reason beyond our reasonable control.  

If any provision of these Terms is found to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, such provision will be deleted from these Terms and the remaining provisions will continue with full force and effect. 

No failure to exercise, and no delay in exercising, on the part of either party, any right or any power under these Terms will act as a waiver thereof, nor will a single or partial exercise of any right or power under these Terms preclude further exercise of that or any other right under these Terms.

These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be delegated, transferred or assigned by you, without the prior written consent of us, and any attempt to do so shall be null and void. We may assign these Terms and our rights and duties hereunder to any party, or we may replace the contractually bound entity by way of novation by posting on the Site or updating these Terms with the name of another entity, at any time without prior notice to you. The Terms shall be binding on each party’s permitted successors and assigns.

All headings in these Terms are included solely for convenience, and shall not affect its interpretation. 

These Terms are made and entered into for the sole protection and benefit of the parties hereto, and no other person or entity shall be a direct or indirect beneficiary of, or shall have any direct or indirect cause of action or claim in connection with these Terms.  

The partes are independent contractors and nothing in these Terms shall be construed as creating a partnership, joint venture or agency relationship between the parties, or as authorizing either party to act as agent for the other or to enter into contracts on behalf of the other.
