Some of Branch’s Services are provided at no cost whereas certain premium services “Premium Services” require payment. In consideration for Branch providing Premium Services to Customer, Customer agrees to pay to Branch the applicable fees (see pricing page for current options).
Branch will charge Customer as of the last day of each month for all fees and applicable Taxes (including any related interest and/or penalties), due in that month. If a Customer commences using Premium Services in the middle of a calendar month, Branch will pro-rate any monthly fees for the Customer’s use of the Premium Services based on the calendar days remaining in that month, net of any applicable trial period.
In order to cancel Premium Services, Customers should contact Branch at email@example.com. As Branch charges Customers at the end of the month for Premium Service use, it does not offer refunds. If a Customer cancels Premium Services in the middle of a month, Branch will pro-rate monthly fees for the Customer’s use of Premium Services based on the calendar days elapsed during said month.
Branch may, at its sole discretion, offer customers a trial period to sample the Premium Services experience. Such agreements are made on a case-by-case basis. Customers will never be charged to retroactively cover fees during the trial period. However, customers not-opting out of Branch Services post-trial may automatically begin incurring monthly charges per their agreement.
For customers paying for Premium Services by credit card, fees will be billed to the credit card nominated by Customer and Customer authorizes the card issuer to pay all such amounts and authorizes Branch (or its billing agent) to charge the credit card account until Customer or Branch cancels or terminates the Premium Services as set forth herein; provided that if payment is not received from the credit card issuer, Customer agrees to pay all amounts due upon demand. Customer must provide current, complete and accurate billing and credit card information. Customer agrees to pay all costs of collection, including attorney's fees and costs, on any outstanding balance. In certain instances, the issuer of the credit card may charge a foreign transaction fee or related charges, which Customer will be responsible to pay.
Fees quoted do not include potentially applicable taxes, duties, levies, tariffs, and other governmental charges (including, without limitation, VAT) (collectively, “Taxes”). Customer is responsible for payment of all Taxes and any related interest and/or penalties resulting from any payments made hereunder, other than any taxes based on Branch’s net income. Applicable Taxes are calculated and then included along with service fees at the time Customer is charged.
Each party agrees as follows: (i) to use the Confidential Information of the other party only for the purposes described herein; (ii) that the party receiving Confidential Information from the other party will not reproduce such Confidential Information and will hold in confidence and protect the Confidential Information from dissemination to, and use by, any third party; (iii) that, except as required in performance of a party's obligations under this Terms, neither party will create any derivative work from Confidential Information disclosed to such party by the other party; (iv) to restrict access to the Confidential Information disclosed by the other party to such of its employees, agents and third parties, if any, who have a need to have access and who have been advised of and have agreed in writing or are otherwise bound to treat such information in accordance with these Terms; and (v) to return or destroy all Confidential Information of the other party in its possession upon termination or expiration of these Terms or upon the disclosing party's written request. The receiving party shall, upon disclosing party's request, certify that all Confidential Information has either been returned to the disclosing party or destroyed subject to applicable local, state, national and foreign laws, treaties and regulations.
The receiving party will not be obligated under this confidentiality section with respect to information that: (i) is or has become readily publicly available through no act or omission of the other party or its employees or agents; (ii) is received from a third party lawfully in possession of such information and the receiving party has no knowledge of any disclosure restrictions on such third party to disclose such information; (iii) is disclosed to a third party by the disclosing party without restriction on disclosure (iv) was rightfully in the possession of the receiving party without restriction prior to its disclosure by the other party; or (v) was independently developed by employees or consultants of the receiving party without reliance on, or reference to such Confidential Information.
Except as otherwise provided in these Terms, neither party will issue a press release or make any public statement regarding these Terms and/or the other party without the written consent of the other party.

For parties residing outside the United States, any dispute arising hereunder shall be submitted to confidential binding arbitration in San Mateo County, California for the maximum judgment enforceable, except that to the extent Customer has in any manner violated or threatened to violate Branch Metrics’ intellectual property rights, Branch Metrics may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court in the State of California. Customer hereby consents to, and waives all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction and forum non conveniens with respect to venue and jurisdiction in the state and federal courts of California. Arbitration under this Agreement shall be conducted pursuant to the existing International Arbitration Rules at the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrator's award shall be final and binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The parties each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim is initiated in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial.
Our failure to enforce any right or provision in these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by us in writing. In the event that a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable, the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect.
The terms and conditions which by their nature are intended to survive termination of these Terms shall survive, including Restrictions, Disclaimer of Warranties, Feedback, Indemnity, and Limitation of Liability.
