Use of any Third Party Services is at your sole risk and will be governed by separate terms and conditions, separate privacy policies relating to usage of data you may share through the Third Party Services in the course of using the Services, other applicable policies, and may include separate fees and charges.

REGISTRATION; SUBSCRIPTION AND FEES
- Registration. To register to use the Service, You must provide Beam with the information requested in the registration process, including Your name and work email address. You are responsible for all activities that occur under Your account; Beam and Beam’s affiliates are not responsible for unauthorized access to Your account. You will contact Beam immediately if You believe an unauthorized third party may be using Your account or if Your account information is lost or stolen. You will provide complete and accurate information during the registration process and will update it to ensure it remains accurate.
- Some parts of the Services are billed on a Subscription basis. You will be billed on a recurring and periodic basis (“Billing Cycle”) with payment terms as set forth on the applicable order form and/or online checkout. Billing cycles are set either on calendar month or annual basis, depending on the type of Subscription plan You select when purchasing a Subscription. At the end of each Billing Cycle, Your Subscription will automatically renew for additional successive periods of equal duration to the initial Subscription term unless You cancel it before the end of the then current Subscription period. If a free trial period applies to You, Your Subscription will be charged upon the expiration of any applicable free trial period. Subscriptions canceled prior to the expiration of any trial period will not be charged. You may cancel Your Subscription renewal by contacting Beam customer support team at email@example.com, or through the account management portal where applicable.
- A valid payment method is required to process the payment for Your Subscription. You shall provide Beam with accurate and complete billing information including full name, address, state, zip code, telephone number, and a valid payment method information. By submitting such payment information, You automatically authorize Beam to charge all Subscription fees incurred through Your account to any such payment instruments. Should automatic billing fail to occur for any reason, Beam will issue an electronic invoice indicating that You must proceed manually, within a certain deadline date, with the full payment corresponding to the billing period as indicated on the invoice.
- Beam, in its sole discretion and at any time, may modify the Subscription fees for the Subscriptions. Any Subscription fee change will become effective at the end of the then-current Billing Cycle.

Your continued use of the Services after the Subscription fee change comes into effect constitutes Your agreement to pay the modified Subscription fee amount.
- Unless otherwise agreed to in the applicable order form, all fees are payable in the currency of the United States through our payment processor (“Stripe”). You will be responsible for all taxes resulting from the performance of the Service other than taxes on Beam’s income. If all or any part of any payment owed to Beam under this Agreement is withheld, based upon a claim that such withholding is required pursuant to the tax laws of any country or its political subdivisions and/or any tax treaty between the U.S. and any such country, such payment shall be increased by the amount necessary to result in a net payment to Beam of the amounts otherwise payable under this Agreement. All fees paid or payable under this Agreement are non-refundable and Subscriptions are non-cancelable during the Subscription term. Beam may change its fees and payment terms at its discretion.
- Communications. You expressly agree that Beam, or its payment processor, is permitted to bill You any applicable fees, any applicable tax and any other charges You may incur with Beam in connection with Your use of the Service. The fees will be billed to the credit card or other payment account You provide in accordance with the billing terms in effect at the time the fees are due and payable. You acknowledge and agree that Beam will automatically charge Your credit card or other payment account on record with Beam. If payment is not received or cannot be charged to Your credit card account for any reason, Beam reserves the right to either suspend or terminate Your access to the Service and terminate this Agreement.
