If you add an additional subscription for a new DOO PEOPLE service or module at a later date, the new service will commence on the start date specified at the time you added the new service and continue for the subscription term selected at that time. Subscriptions automatically renew, as described in Section 5.1. If you would like a separate instance of the Service for an affiliate, that affiliate must purchase its own subscription to the Service and separately accept these Terms of Service.
2.3 You are solely responsible for the proper cancellation of your subscription. You may cancel your subscription at any time by emailing email@example.com
2.4 DOO PEOPLE may suspend your access to the Service and terminate this Agreement and your use of the Service at any time in the event you materially breach this Agreement (including failure to pay, which may occur if your credit card cannot be charged) and you do not cure such breach within 30 days of DOO PEOPLE providing you with written notice of such breach (including notice by email), or earlier if a specific subscription or Additional Terms provides otherwise. Notwithstanding the foregoing, DOO PEOPLE may immediately suspend or terminate your access to the Service without liability if you are in violation of Sections 4.1, 4.5 or 13 of this Agreement, as determined by DOO PEOPLE in its sole discretion.

Notice via email from DOO PEOPLE will be sent to you at the email address you have provided to us.

2.5 Data downloads and deletion. In the event your subscription is terminated, other than in instances where it is terminated by DOO PEOPLE for your nonpayment or violation of Sections 4.1 or 13, you will continue to have the ability to download the information provided, inputted or uploaded to your databases in the DOO PEOPLE Service by you or on your behalf (“Data”) for 30 days after the effective date of expiration or termination of your subscription.

3.2 DOO PEOPLE may modify or update this Agreement at any time. In the event DOO PEOPLE determines it is necessary to make a material modification to this Agreement, you will be notified of such change and asked to affirmatively agree to such modified version of the Agreement.

You agree to use the Service only in compliance with all applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules and regulations (“Applicable Law”).

DOO PEOPLE’s hours for basic support are 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., CAT, on weekdays, in the English language via telephone, email and chat. Also, while DOO PEOPLE would like to offer the Service in a manner that accommodates all customers in their native language, this is not practical considering the constant updating we do with our Service, the vast number of languages spoken and read in the world, and the localizations that would be required.

DOO PEOPLE will email you a receipt when your card has been charged. If your card cannot be charged, DOO PEOPLE will notify you and you will need to update your payment information. In the event you do not update your payment information within 22 days of DOO PEOPLE’s notice, your access to the Service may be suspended and you will need to update your card information in order to resume use of the Service. There will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service.
5.2 Annual subscription pricing requires a one-year minimum commitment. If you cancel your full subscription, or your subscription is suspended for nonpayment, before the end of the one-year commitment period, you will no longer qualify for annual subscription pricing and you will be charged the difference between the monthly and annual commitment pricing for the number of months your subscription was active. If you cancel only a portion of your subscription, you may still qualify for annual pricing and the prepaid amounts attributed to that portion will be used against other services to which you have subscribed.
