3. The Service, the Service Elements and the Stannp Charges
3.1. Stannp offers various Service Elements as part of the Service that the Customer may opt to choose and benefit from depending on the Customer’s Payment Plan. Existing and/or new Service Elements may be added or removed by Stannp at its absolute and sole discretion from time to time being as described on the Website although Stannp shall endeavour to ensure that, in respect of Subscription Accounts, the Service remains at or above that for which the Customer subscribes for at the start of its subscription period as far as is practical. Access to certain Service Elements and/or quantity or rates of use may require the Customer to subscribe to a Subscription Account. Specific details of the functional capability of the Service Elements and the Service and license volumes for the Customer’s subscription are available within the Customer’s subscription details within the Platform.
3.2. General: Stannp offers the Service on either a free or on a paid Payment Plan depending upon the combination of Service Elements the Customer wishes to use. All users of the Platform will be considered subscribers on a ‘free to use’ basis unless they have opted in to a Payment Plan. The Payment Plan available to you may vary depending on the Service Elements chosen by the Customer and may also be subject to the Customer satisfying certain credit and background check requirements. Stannp shall determine which of the Payment Plan options are, and whether any volume-based or other discounts may be, available to you at the time of entry into this Agreement and inform you accordingly. Stannp may from time to time be required by law to make checks into the credit worthiness of a customer, and to satisfy itself that funds received for offering the Service are not contravening, for example, any applicable money laundering rules and regulations.
3.3. Payment Plans: Stannp offers various payment plans in respect of the Charges applicable to the use of the Service via the Platform, which invoicing and payment arrangements are as follows:
3.3.1. Pay-As-You-Go (‘PAYG’) Account: The Customer shall establish a credit balance sufficient to cover the associated Charges prior to using the relevant Service Element by making an advance payment (using a credit or debit card accepted by Stannp) via the payment processing services available via the Platform . The Customer may make, or Stannp may require the Customer to make, additional payments to such prepayment balance from time to time.
3.3.2. Credit Account: The granting of, and payment terms relating to, credit accounts will be agreed on a case-by-case basis, as communicated to you by Stannp. Stannp reserves the right, at any time and its absolute discretion, to refuse to offer or to withdraw the credit account option from a Customer where the Customer fails to satisfy Stannp’s credit requirements
3.3.3. Subscription Account: As a PAYG Account or a Credit Account holder you may opt to subscribe to an annual ‘Subscription Account’ . A range of Subscription Accounts (offering different combinations of Service Elements) are offered by Stannp, as detailed on the Website. Stannp shall, in such circumstances, invoice the Customer on a monthly or annual basis, as specified on the Platform, with such invoices being due and payable within 30 days of the date of invoice. An upgrade by you to a higher Subscription Account may be activated at any time via the Platform, terminating your current subscription and starting a new annual subscription subject to these Terms based on the upgrade date, with the remaining charges against the prior subscription being off-set against the new subscription invoice amount. If, in the alternative, you seek to terminate this Agreement during the subscription period applicable to your Subscription Account such termination shall only take effect at the end of such subscription period. Irrespective of whether or not you decide to avail yourself of the Service during this period, the Charges you have paid shall not be refunded.
3.4. Varying Charges:
3.4.1. For your non-compliance: Stannp reserves the right to vary the Charges (acting reasonably and on written notice to you) if the Mailing Items or Electronic Mailing Items (as applicable) that you convey to Stannp do not comply with the relevant Mailing Profile or other requirements under this Agreement;
3.4.2. For PAYG Accounts and Credit Accounts: Stannp may, in respect of PAYG Accounts and Credit Accounts, review and increase the Charges at any time on 14 days’ written notice to you. You have the ability to terminate this Agreement pursuant to Clause 9.1 if you disagree with any increase we make;
3.4.3. For Subscription Accounts: Charges in respect of Subscription Accounts are fixed for the applicable subscription period. However from time to time, Stannp may change the Subscription Account Charges. You will be notified at least 45 days in advance of Stannp applying any such changes to your Service subscriptions. Unless otherwise set forth in your account details accessible via the Platform, such changes will not affect the prices for current Service during the then-current subscription term and will only become effective upon your next renewal term that commences at least 45 days after Stannp’s notification of such change
3.5. Add-On Subscriptions: If, during a then-current subscription term: (a) you add additional volume or licences to items that you are already subscribed to, such increased subscriptions will be billed at a prorated amount at the price of the underlying preexisting subscription; (b) you add new subscriptions to items that you are not already subscribed to, such items will be billed at a prorated amount at the then-current list price.
