3.2 License Fees
The fees for your Content License (the “License Fees”) are due in advance, at the time of submission of an Order Form, before your Content License will begin and the Content is first made available to you.
Your access and license to the Content pursuant to the Content License will not be established until Grosh has verified that the payment of License Fees is confirmed (“Payment”). By providing your payment information (e.g. credit card information or bank account information) (“Payment Method”) you are expressly authorizing Grosh to charge your Payment Method for the License Fees and any additional charges incurred in connection with your Content License. Grosh uses a third-party service provider that specializes in payment processing (the “Payment Processor”). You will provide your Payment Method directly to the Payment Processor, who stores and maintains your Payment Method in accordance with accepted security protocols, subject to the Payment Processor’s security and privacy policies. Grosh does not keep or store your Payment Method. Grosh may communicate with the Payment Processor to request the processing of charges for your License Fees in accordance with your applicable Content License. The Payment Processor then attempts to process the charges and, if successful, deposits the proceeds into Grosh’s account. You are solely responsible for any overdraft or other bank fees charged to your Payment Method.
You are responsible for paying any governmental taxes imposed on your Content License, or incident to your use of the Service or the Content, including, but not limited to, sales, use, or value-added taxes, without any reduction in License Fees. To the extent Grosh is obligated to collect or pay such taxes, the applicable tax may be added to your Payment, unless you provide Grosh with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate tax authority. If applicable taxes are not collected at the time of payment, you are solely responsible to remedy any such delinquent tax payments.
The Content License is conditioned upon your Payment of the License Fees and compliance with this Agreement. The Content License will not commence until the Payment is received and compliance with this Agreement is confirmed. If at any time during the License Term, the Payment is declined or cancelled, or you violate the terms of this Agreement, the Content License will immediately terminate without notice (“Default”). Upon Default, you will remain liable for the Payment of the License Fees and any unauthorized or continued use will subject you to statutory damages for copyright infringement. Upon Default, in addition to any remedies Grosh may have at law, Grosh shall have the right to seek and obtain any injunctive or other equitable relief (including an order restraining any threatened or future use of the Content or enjoin further performance of the Content in the Production), on use of affidavit evidence or otherwise, and without furnishing proof of actual damages or posting a bond or other surety. You agree to reimburse Grosh for any expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and collection expenses) incurred by Grosh in enforcing its rights under the Content License.
3.6 No Refunds
Grosh does not issue refunds after the activation of any Content. No License Fees payable by you hereunder are refundable upon cancellation of the Content License and/or this Agreement. Grosh will not refund any prepaid License Fees for the remainder of any unused License Term.
