7. PAYMENT.

1. While many of the services offered on the Site are provided free of charge, some of our Services require payment. In order to use our services that have fees associated with them (including single use services or subscription plan services) you must select a payment method and provide accurate billing and payment information when prompted. You agree to pay SmartResumeWizard for all charges incurred under your account, including all applicable taxes, fees and surcharges. You authorize SmartResumeWizard to charge your designated payment method for such charges. If SmartResumeWizard, for any reason, does not receive payment from your designated payment method, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand by SmartResumeWizard or its operators. Every time you use the Site, you reaffirm that (i) SmartResumeWizard (or its designated vendor acting as its billing agent) is authorized to charge your designated payment method; (ii) SmartResumeWizard may submit charges incurred under your account for payment; and (iii) you will be responsible for such charges, even if your membership is canceled or terminated.

2. Please note that SmartResumeWizard uses a domestic or an international third-party payment service, the latter of which may result in international transactions fees billed to your credit card, (collectively, the "Payment Service"), to collect payments for all fees. At the time of purchase, you will provide SmartResumeWizard your payment information and we will pass that along to the Payment Service. Please note that any international transaction fees that you may incur are charged by your bank and not by SmartResumeWizard. All questions concerning such fees should be directed towards your bank. Any information you provide us in connection with payment that we provide to the Payment Service will be subject to the Payment Service's user agreement and privacy policy, not this Agreement or our Privacy Policy. You acknowledge and agree that SmartResumeWizard is not, and will not be, responsible or liable for the Payment Service's services, its site or any acts or omissions of the Payment Service. Price and availability of any product or service offered through the Site are subject to change without notice. Refunds and exchanges will be subject to SmartResumeWizard’s refund and exchange policies then in effect. You agree to pay all charges that may be incurred by you or on your behalf through the Site, at the price(s) in effect when such charges are incurred, including without limitation, any taxes that may be applicable.

Recurring Subscriptions for one or more of our services commence on the date and time of service establishment and remain active for so long as SmartResumeWizard offers that service to the public, unless the service is otherwise cancelled by you or SmartResumeWizard as outlined in this Agreement. In event that there is a billing discrepancy, you must notify SmartResumeWizard’s customer service within 90 days after the charge first appears on your credit card or bank or other account statement. If you do not notify SmartResumeWizard within 90 days, you agree that you waive your right to dispute such problems or discrepancies.

4. Fees charged for subscription plans (including recurring subscriptions) are nonrefundable and are due in advance unless otherwise noted. For subscription plans, your payment method will be charged automatically at the appropriate interval until such time as you cancel or SmartResumeWizard terminates your subscription. We will not increase the amount we charge for subscription plans without notifying you in advance via the email address associated with your account before the beginning of the first renewal period affected by the increase. In the event we cannot charge your account, we reserve the right to terminate your access to our fee-based products. PLEASE NOTE: We will automatically charge your credit card or other account at the start of the billing period and at the start of each renewal period, unless you cancel your subscription before the relevant renewal period begins.

8. REFUND AND EXCHANGE POLICY.

1. We want you to be 100% satisfied with our products and services.  If you are less than satisfied or feel there has been an error in billing, please contact us immediately so that we can help you resolve the issue.  If you are still not satisfied you may request to cancel your subscription and obtain a refund for up to 30 days of your seven day trial and subscription or six month option.  After 30 days you may cancel any subscription or access to the Site, but you will not be entitled to a refund.

2. When you cancel a subscription to our fee-based products, you will continue to have access to our services for the remainder of the subscription period for which SmartResumeWizard has received payment or until you instruct us to terminate your access, whichever is sooner. Thereafter, we will deactivate your user account and bar any further access to such information and/or files as well as to that portion of our website, except as we may otherwise provide from time to time or until you renew your subscription. After your first 30 days, if you or SmartResumeWizard cancels your subscription to one of our fee-based products before the end of the applicable period, you agree that all fees and charges assessed for that period by us are nonrefundable. Nonrefundable fees include the full monthly, annual or lifetime fee for the entire period that has begun (regardless of whether you logged onto our web site or used the fee-based product during that period).

11. LIABILITY DISCLAIMER.

YOU EXPRESSLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT SMARTRESUMEWIZARD AND ITS PARENT, SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, PARTNERS AND LICENSORS OR ANYONE ELSE WHO HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN THE CREATION, PRODUCTION, OR DELIVERY OF THESE PAGES, SERVICES, AND CONTENT AND MATERIALS SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, GOODWILL, USE, DATA (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY RESUMES WRITTEN BY SMARTRESUMEWIZARD, AND ANY OTHER USER INFORMATION PROVIDED IN CONNECTION THEREWITH) OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES (EVEN IF SMARTRESUMEWIZARD HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES), RESULTING FROM: (I) THE USE OR THE INABILITY TO USE THE SITE; (II) THE COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS AND SERVICES RESULTING FROM ANY GOODS, DATA, INFORMATION OR SERVICES PURCHASED OR OBTAINED OR MESSAGES RECEIVED OR TRANSACTIONS ENTERED INTO THROUGH OR FROM THE SITE; (III) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR ALTERATION OF YOUR TRANSMISSIONS OR DATA; (IV) STATEMENTS OR CONDUCT OF ANY THIRD PARTY ON THE SITE; OR (V) ANY OTHER MATTER RELATING TO THE SITE.

SMARTRESUMEWIZARD RESERVES THE RIGHT AT ANY TIME TO MODIFY OR DISCONTINUE, TEMPORARILY OR PERMANENTLY, THE SITE (OR ANY PART THEREOF) WITH OR WITHOUT NOTICE. YOU AGREE THAT SMARTRESUMEWIZARD SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY SUCH MODIFICATION, SUSPENSION OR DISCONTINUANCE OF THE SITE. THE LIMITATIONS SET FORTH IN THE PRECEDING PARAGRAPH MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU BECAUSE SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES. IF ANY LIMITATIONS ARE HELD INAPPLICABLE OR UNENFORCEABLE FOR ANY REASON, THEN SMARTRESUMEWIZARD’S MAXIMUM LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY NON-DIRECT TYPE OF DAMAGES SHALL BE LIMITED TO U.S. $50.00 IN THE AGGREGATE. IN NO EVENT SHALL SMARTRESUMEWIZARD (ITS PARENT, SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, PARTNERS AND LICENSORS OR ANYONE ELSE WHO HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN THE CREATION, PRODUCTION, OR DELIVERY OF THESE PAGES), BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT DAMAGES IN EXCESS IN THE AGGREGATE OF US$50.00 OR FIVE TIMES THE AMOUNT OF YOUR MOST RECENT MONTHLY PAYMENT (IN THE EVENT YOU ARE A PAYING SUBSCRIBER), WHICHEVER IS LESS. IF ANY PART OF THE EXCLUSIONS OF DAMAGES OR LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET FORTH HEREIN IS UNENFORCEABLE UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, SMARTRESUMEWIZARD’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY RELATED THERETO WILL BE LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, EVEN IF ANY REMEDY FAILS ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.

BECAUSE USER AUTHENTICATION OVER THE INTERNET IS DIFFICULT, SMARTRESUMEWIZARD CANNOT AND DOES NOT CONFIRM EACH USER'S IDENTITY. WE ARE NOT INVOLVED IN USER-TO-USER DEALINGS NOR DO WE CONTROL THE BEHAVIOR OF PARTICIPANTS ON ANY SITE. THEREFORE, IN THE EVENT THAT YOU HAVE A DISPUTE WITH ONE OR MORE USERS, YOU RELEASE SMARTRESUMEWIZARD (AND OUR AGENTS AND EMPLOYEES) FROM CLAIMS, DEMANDS AND DAMAGES (ACTUAL AND CONSEQUENTIAL AND DIRECT AND INDIRECT) OF EVERY KIND AND NATURE, KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, SUSPECTED AND UNSUSPECTED, DISCLOSED AND UNDISCLOSED, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH SUCH DISPUTES. IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT, YOU WAIVE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542, WHICH SAYS: "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR."

12. PROPRIETARY RIGHTS.

1. The Site and all right, title and interest in and to the Site is the sole property of SmartResumeWizard and/or its Affiliates (including parent company) or its licensors, and is protected by U.S. copyright and international treaties. SmartResumeWizard reserves for itself and its licensors all other right, title and interest. "SmartResumeWizard" and the SmartResumeWizard design logo are registered service or trademarks and certain other names or logos, such as TextTuner, for example, are service marks or trademarks of SmartResumeWizard. All related products and service names, design marks and slogans are also the service marks or trademarks of SmartResumeWizard. In addition, the "look" and "feel" of the Site (including color combinations, button shapes, layout, design and all other graphical elements) are protected by SmartResumeWizard’s trademarks, service marks and copyrights. All other product and service marks contained on the Site are the trademarks of their respective owners. You agree that the Site and any software used in connection with the Site contain proprietary and confidential information that is protected by applicable intellectual property and other laws. You further agree that content, including any tests and/or reports, contained in advertisements or information presented to you through the Site or by advertisers is protected by copyrights, trademarks, service marks, patents or other proprietary rights and laws. Except as expressly permitted by applicable law or authorized by SmartResumeWizard or its advertisers (as applicable), you agree not to modify, rent, lease, loan, sell, distribute or create derivative works based on the Service or the Software, in whole or in part. SmartResumeWizard also reserves the right to use its work, including, without limitations, any resumes written by SmartResumeWizard, in instructional or promotional material subject to the Privacy Policy.

2. For the avoidance of doubt, each User retains ownership of any materials you, the User, submits through the Site (each, a "Submission"). However, in order to make your Submissions available on the Site and to best provide you with career and educational opportunities tailored to such Submissions, SmartResumeWizard needs certain rights to your Submissions. As such, by submitting materials to our Site, including resumes, you grant to SmartResumeWizard and its designees a worldwide, non-exclusive, transferable, royalty-free, fully-paid up, perpetual, irrevocable right and license, without compensation or further notice to you: (a) to use, reproduce, distribute, adapt (including without limitation edit, modify, translate, and reformat), create derivative works of, publicly display and publicly perform such Submission, and the contents of such Submission, in any media now known or hereafter developed, for SmartResumeWizard’s business, marketing and promotional purposes and (b) to sublicense the foregoing rights, through multiple tiers, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law; provided however, that in each case, with respect to the resume materials you submit, such rights shall be subject to any restrictions or limitations established by you in connection with your creation or maintenance of such resume (for example, if you limit availability of your resume, SmartResumeWizard will use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the availability of your resume complies with the settings you selected). By way of further explanation, SmartResumeWizard would not be able to perform many of the services we offer without your granting SmartResumeWizard these rights. For example, without the right to "adapt," we would be unable to make the necessary changes to the Submissions so that the Submissions meet our technical criteria; without the right to reproduce, we would be unable to make copies of Submissions on our servers to post the Submissions. As noted, this license is non-exclusive (so you can license your Submissions to others), worldwide (as the Internet is global in its reach), fully-paid up and royalty-free (so that we do not have to pay you for posting your Submissions) and sublicenseable through multiple tiers (so that we can use our subcontractors to provide Services).

3. For each Submission, you represent and warrant that you have all rights necessary for you to grant the licenses granted in this section and that such Submission and your provision thereof to and through the Site comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations. You acknowledge that you are solely responsible for verifying any and all information contained in any Submission, including, without limitation, confirming employment history and checking references, and that SmartResumeWizard is not responsible for correcting any information provided to any third party. You further irrevocably waive any "moral rights" or other rights with respect to attribution of authorship or integrity of materials regarding each Submission that you may have under any applicable law under any legal theory.

4. Claims of Copyright Infringement. If you have a good faith belief that materials available on the Site infringe your copyright, send SmartResumeWizard a notice requesting that we remove the material or block access to it. If you believe in good faith that someone has wrongly filed a notice of copyright infringement against you, send SmartResumeWizard a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by federal law (see http://www.copyright.gov/ for details). See below "Information or Complaints" for where to send notices or counter-notices.

13. FITNESS FOR USE.

SmartResumeWizard makes no representation that materials on these pages are appropriate or available for use in any particular location. Those who choose to access these pages do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws.

14. BINDING ARBITRATION.

THIS SECTION PROVIDES FOR RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION BEFORE A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF IN A COURT BY A JUDGE OR JURY. As precursor to arbitrating any dispute, you must first contact SmartResumeWizard by email at info@smartresumeservice.com, so that we can work to resolve the dispute. Similarly, we must first contact you at the most recent email address that we have on file for you before bringing a dispute to arbitration. In the event that we cannot resolve a dispute within sixty (60) days of notification by either party or if SmartResumeWizard is unable to reach you, you do not respond to our efforts to contact you or you fail to engage in good-faith settlement discussions with SmartResumeWizard , then the following procedures shall apply. All disputes arising under or relating to this Agreement shall be settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes ("Supplementary Procedures"), as amended by the terms of this Agreement. The Supplementary Procedures are available online at www.adr.org. To the extent that the arbitrator deems reasonable, the arbitrator shall conduct hearings, if any, by teleconference or videoconference, rather than by personal appearances. Any in-person appearances requested by the arbitrator shall be held in San Francisco, CA. The arbitrator's decision shall be based upon the substantive laws of the State of California without regard to its principles of conflicts of law. Arbitration proceedings shall be conducted in English and shall be conducted in a manner that preserves confidentiality.
