- Registration Rules.
- If at any time during the term of this agreement we understand that you: (1) misled us as to your business practices and/or services, or (2) provided information that does not describe your precise business, we reserve the right to terminate your account. We may terminate your account and/or your access to the Site at any time without notice if we deem such to be necessary or appropriate. Any such action will be at the sole discretion of All Things Birth and Baby, LLC.
- Should you decide to withdraw your listing from the directory, you may cancel within thirty (30) days of registering with no penalty. Notification of your intent to cancel must be provided to email@example.com. After 30 days, you may still cancel your listing, but any and all fees will still be collected.
- Payment is required for certain services on our website, such as expanded directory listings, blog features and featured provider listings. Pricing for these offerings is available via communication from the Site owners and the online registration forms. Payment for these services is conducted via Stripe, a secure platform. However, as with any third-party website, you use the service at your own risk. Any use of our payment platform constitutes acceptance of a withdrawal of funds from the credit card provided. Ongoing monthly accounts will continue to be billed to the card on file, unless you notify us in writing of a change in card at firstname.lastname@example.org. Keep in mind that your payment may not post to your account the day you make it. Sometimes it takes a full business day to post to the bank from the card company.
- Completion of a payment transaction is contingent upon both the authorization of payment by your card company and acceptance of your payment by Stripe. In the event that your payment is unable to be processed, we will attempt to run the card a second time. If the card is still declined, we will contact you for new payment information. If this is not provided within fourteen (14) calendar days, your registration will be terminated. In the event your payment is not processed or authorized by your card company your payment liability shall remain outstanding and unpaid and you will be subject to all applicable penalties, late fees and interest charges assessed by the relevant entity thereon, all which obligations remain your sole responsibility.
