3. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE.
Financial Cents offers its Service in three (3) subscription types and in one (1) limited-access version:
- Directly to client business owners: In this subscription model, Financial Cents grants a license of its Service directly to the client business owner. Financial Cents will charge an agreed amount of money in U.S. dollars per month in exchange for use of its Service. Certain Third-Party software may connect with Financial Cents’ Service and directly feed, or input, Your Data, Confidential Information, financial information, and other necessary information into Financial Cents’ Service.
- To accounting firms: In this subscription model, Financial Cents grants a license of its Service to an accounting firm, who in turn, subscribes its own business clients’ accountants to Financial Cents’ Service for an agreed amount of money in U.S. dollars per month in exchange for use of its Service. Certain Third-Party software may connect with Financial Cents’ Service and directly feed, or input, Your Data, Confidential Information, financial information, and other necessary information into Financial Cents’ Service.
- Through the “Partner Program”: Exactly like the accounting firm subscription model, except in this subscription model Financial Cents will additionally offer a “promotional code” to accounting firm clients upon registering for Financial Cents’ Service. The accounting firms, in turn, may give the promotional code to its own clients to encourage them to use Financial Cents’ Service. By using the promotional code, Financial Cents’ accounting firm clients will either receive an agreed amount of money back in U.S. dollars per month or an equal amount will be credited or discounted from the subscription charge that the accounting firm is to pay to Financial Cents for using Financial Cents’ Service. Financial Cents alone has the right to determine who may be a part of the “Partner Program” and utilize this subscription model. The promotional code discount amount will be agreed written or orally by Financial Cents and the accounting firm client before the accounting firm client registers for the Service and the discount amount may be subject to change from time to time and at any time.
- “Trial,” or “Demo” version: This is not a subscription type, but rather, a limited-access version and registration model that Financial Cents at its sole discretion may make available to certain clients without charge from time to time and at any time. Further access to certain features, functions, and/or full or partial portions of the Service may require payment. In addition to any fees required to access certain features, capabilities, functions or services offered through or by the Service (“Charged Offerings”), You are responsible for paying all applicable taxes (including, but not limited to those we are not required to collect) and for all Third-Party hardware, software, service and/or other costs that You may incur in order to access the Service and Your account. Neither this Agreement nor Your account entitle You to any subsequent releases of the Services, nor to any for-pay features, products, capabilities, features, upgrades or services offered, distributed or made available through the Service without paying applicable charges or except as otherwise expressly and explicitly provided by Financial Cents. If permitted to use this registration model, You must have authorized and separate Service access for each account You wish it to be enabled for and, where applicable, You must download and install any necessary software on each machine on which You wish to use and access the Service.
