LeadLocate Subscription & Payment Agreement
This agreement (“Agreement“) is entered into, to be effective as of this invoice by and between your business (“Subscriber”) and LeadLocate (“Provider or LeadLocate”).
Provider provides and sells subscriptions for subscribers to access and use the Software via Leadlocate.com or any website notified to the subscribers from time to time (the “Services”). Subscriber desires to use the Services for Subscriber’s internal business purposes, and Provider is willing to provide access to the Services for Client’s internal business use pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth herein.
Subscriber acknowledges that they will follow all Federal and State laws when using the software from Provider and consult with their attorney before using the software. Provider and Subscriber acknowledge and agree that this Agreement shall be effective and in force immediately upon the aforementioned.
Now, therefore in consideration of the mutual promises and covenants herein contained, the parties agree to the Articles as follows:
LeadLocate is a web service and there are no long-term contracts, but since it is a website, Provider will not do refunds on the time Subscriber has access to the account. It is like any software service you buy or website hosting you buy – you pay for the time the account is open and then can cancel when you no longer want it.
Under the terms of this Agreement the Provider provides software and sells subscriptions for Subscriber right to access and use the LeadLocate Platform via leadloacte.com or any other website specified by the Provider. Subject to the timely payment of applicable fees specified under this Agreement, the Provider hereby grants to Subscriber, a non-exclusive, non-transferable rights to the use of software for the duration of this Agreement.
Any Setup Fees and Subscription Fees for the first Subscription Period of the term of this Agreement shall be paid on the Effective Date. The Subscription Fee for all subsequent Subscription Periods of the term of this Agreement shall be paid to Provider on the first day of each subsequent Subscription Period. Subscriber shall provide a valid credit card, ACH payment system information, bank account information authorized for automatic bill paying, or other acceptable method of payment to Provider and shall take all necessary steps to authorize automatic payment of the Subscription Fee. By agreeing to this Agreement, Client hereby authorizes Provider to automatically charge said method of payment for all Subscription Periods during the term of this Agreement.
BDC LIVE AGENT ASSISTANCE SERVICE
If the Subscriber purchased a BDC live agent assistance plan our agents will assist with the account management for a set amount of time Subscriber prepaid for. In the event that the Subscriber wants to stop BDC live agent assistance they can do so by going to Login > Manage Account > Account Settings > Unchecking “BDC Service” box in the LeadLocate portal. No refunds are ever issues for any BDC service that was stopped by the Subscriber. (Ex: If a subscriber’s plan includes 4 hours of assistance Monday through Friday and Subscriber stops BDC Service on Thursday they will still use up prepaid days of BDC Service) BDC Service cannot roll over into next term. The BDC Service box is checked by default, if Subscriber does not want to receive any BDC live agent assistance they can uncheck that box at any time. Provider might allocate complimentary overflow BDC live agent assistance to accounts with enabled BDC Service even if the Subscriber bid not pay for a BDC agent plan. This complimentary service is rendered on “as available” basis and is not guaranteed.
CREDIT CARD CHARGES AND CREDIT CARD FRAUD PENALTIES
Subscriber warrants that he or she is over 18 years of age, not subject to the Child Online Privacy Act, of legal age to enter into contractual agreements in the state in which he is present when he makes this purchase, and is the true and authorized owner of the credit card used to make this purchase. Any Subscriber who violates any of these requirements may be liable for civil or criminal prosecution and agrees to pay liquidated damages of an amount the equivalent of US $10,000.00 per fraudulent transaction, plus actual damages, and agrees that all information collected by Provider may be used for prosecution and may be turned over to law enforcement agencies or to credit card companies and merchant service providers.
If the true and/or authorized owner of the credit card attempts to commit fraud upon the Provider, he or she authorizes each and every credit card company or merchant service provider to disclose to the Provider all information that could be construed as proof of credit card fraud.
Any Subscriber who attempts to perpetrate a fraud upon Provider involving the use of a credit card herewith gives authorization for the Provider to access all credit information about the Subscriber from credit reporting agencies and also authorizes the Provider to discover all relevant information from any source about the fraudulent practices of the Subscriber and to reveal such information to credit reporting agencies, credit card companies, merchant service providers, collection agencies, and law enforcement agencies.
Subscriber agrees that if he or she uses trickery to receive a refund, or if he causes a fraudulent dispute claim that results in a chargeback against the Provider’s account, that the Provider is authorized to re-charge the Subscriber’s credit card that was used for the original purchase to the extent that will make the Provider whole. Subscriber agrees to, in addition to actual damages, pay to the Provider liquidated damages of an amount equivalent to US $10,000.00 for every separate fraudulent action Subscriber commits. Subscriber grants Provider authority to collect any past due amount or outstanding fees by all legal means necessary.
TERMINATION AND CANCELLATIONS
No cooling-off period. Once an invoice is paid, no refunds are EVER issued under ANY circumstances. The term of this Agreement shall commence on the aforementioned date, unless terminated by either party as provided for herein. Subscriber can cancel the service at any time by giving the Provider written notice at least 7 days before next billing cycle. Notwithstanding the foregoing, upon giving notice of termination of this Agreement, Subscriber shall not make and Provider shall not accept any further initiations. You can cancel service by contacting LeadLocate via LeadLocate portal (Login > Manage Account > Account Settings > Close Account), email (firstname.lastname@example.org), phone (844-788-7757), or fax (866-429-5707) no later than 7 days before the next billing cycle. No refunds are ever issued for paid services as subscriber still occupies resources even if they are not actively using services.
Provider may discontinue provision of service at any time for any reason. In the event of such termination, Provider may choose to continue to perform the services referred to in this Agreement for any services being handled by Provider at the time this Agreement is terminated. With respect to such services, the provisions of this Agreement shall continue to govern the rights and obligations of the parties including, but not limited to, the Subscriber’s obligation to make the payments called for in this Agreement.

BEFORE YOU USE LEADLOCATE
Some LeadLocate users are not required to access the National Do Not Call Registry, and thus may access LeadLocate as an Exempt Organization, if one or more of the following is true:
Your organization is not subject to either the FTC’s or the FCC’s jurisdiction. For example, a non-profit charitable organization may be an Exempt Organization, assuming, of course, that it is truly a non-profit. Entities that have been granted tax exempt status under the Internal Revenue Code are not necessarily Exempt Organizations for purposes of the National Do Not Call Registry. See, e.g., FTC v. National Consumer Council, Inc., and FTC v. Debt Management Foundation Services, Inc. There, the FTC successfully challenged the status of a purported nonprofit organization whose role in fact was simply to generate leads for other firms which then charged consumers thousands of dollars in fees for their services.
Example SMS written permission statement that you can add to your forms or site: (see your attorney for complete local and federal laws) “We may contact you using SMS or automated calls. Terms and Privacy can be found on our website. You may receive up to 12 msgs/month. Message and data rates may apply. Reply Drop to stop or More for help and terms. Messages and/or calls may be sent using autodialer.”
Your organization does not engage in any “telemarketing” or “telephone solicitation” activities, as defined by the FTC and FCC, respectively. For example, survey calls and political polling calls are not covered by the definition of “telemarketing” or “telephone solicitations.” An organization that places ONLY these types of calls may be an Exempt Organization.
Your organization qualifies for one or more of the specific exemptions contained in the FTC’s and FCC’s rules, such as:
You only call to solicit charitable contributions; or
You only call consumers with whom you have an established business relationship; or
You only call consumers from whom you have received written permission to call; or
You only make business-to-business calls.
If you are a for-profit telemarketer, you are NOT an Exempt Organization.
Whether your organization is exempt is a decision that requires an understanding of the FTC’s and FCC’s requirements, as well as your specific business practices. Therefore, whether you should subscribe as an Exempt Organization is a decision you must make. In making this decision, you may wish to consult with an attorney.
You may wish to consider the following materials when deciding whether to subscribe to the National Do Not Call Registry as an Exempt Organization:
The FTC Act at 15 U.S.C. §§ 41-58 and related case law. The Communications Act at 47 U.S.C. §§ 151-757 and related case law. The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) at 47 USC §227 and related case law. The Telemarketing and Consumer Fraud Abuse Prevention Act at 15 U.S.C. §§ 6101-6108. The Do Not Call Implementation Act at P.L.108-10, 117 Stat. 557, and related case law. The Telemarketing Sales Rule at 16 C.F.R. § 310 and related Agency statements and case law. The FCC’s rules implementing the TCPA at 47 C.F.R. § 64.1200 and related Agency statements.

ACQUIRING OR SENDING TO THIRD-PARTY MAILING LISTS IS PROHIBITED
Sending campaigns to contact lists that have been acquired (bought, exchanged or loaned) from a third party company will negatively impact deliverability and is strictly prohibited. As a result, email addresses must always be collected in a way where the recipient has explicitly opted in to receive communication. Use of lists that are bought, rented or scraped from third-parties is prohibited by law in most countries, and is absolutely prohibited on Provider’s servers.
EMAILS (UNLESS TRANSACTIONAL) CAN ONLY BE SENT WHERE PERMISSION HAS BEEN EXPRESSLY OBTAINED IN NATURE, IT CAN ONLY BE SENT TO RECIPIENTS WHO HAVE EXPLICITLY GRANTED PERMISSION TO RECEIVE THEM
All your contacts should have granted explicit and provable consent to receive communication. This consent should be granted through a confirmed (“double”) opt-in system that clearly expresses the topic of the subscription on an online or offline form via a checkbox. This checkbox must not be checked by default. In other words all check boxes have to be blank by default, leaving users the opportunity to willingly opt-in to receive communication.
AN UNSUBSCRIBE LINK MUST BE INCLUDED IN EVERY MARKETING CAMPAIGN
All marketing campaigns must include a clear and concise link for recipients to easily opt-out of receiving future communication. The link must be easy for anyone to recognize, read, and understand. On your end, this unsubscription must be granted immediately, with no further emails being sent to this recipient from that moment forward. In accordance with the LeadLocate Sending Policy, transactional and confirmation emails such as purchase orders, payment invoices, password resets, account creations, etc. by nature do not require an unsubscribe link.
THE SENDER NAME AND STATUS MUST BE CLEARLY COMMUNICATED IN EVERY MESSAGE
“From”, “To” and “Reply-To” fields must accurately and clearly identify the sender’s domain name and email address. When sending from a different domain name on behalf of a partner or related third-party organization, the email body must clearly communicate that the message is sent via a third-party domain.
ONLY LEGAL AND LEGITIMATE INFORMATION CAN BE SENT WITH LEADLOCATE
LeadLocate does not support the sending of messages that contain, promote, reference, or link to unlawful, illegal, libelous, defamatory or violence against any individual or group and more generally affecting human rights. Moreover and unless the sender gives us sufficient and specific guarantees at LeadLocate’s sole discretion, LeadLocate does not work in principle with senders (i) who promote the following activities, whether permitted by law or not, including the following but not limited to: gambling, sexual, adult content, weapons and any explosives, tobacco or tobacco-related, drugs, political, hacking, penny stocks, forex trading and trading advice, payday loans, work-at-home offers promoting schemes such as “get rich quick”, “build your wealth” and “financial independence”, or (ii) who send emails in the name and on behalf of third-parties (including their own customers). In general, your emails must not contain any information or content otherwise sovereignly deemed unsuitable to LeadLocate or harmful to the reputation of LeadLocate, its affiliates, partners, customers and users.
JURISDICTION AND VENUE
If any matter concerning this purchase shall be brought before a court of law, pre- or post-arbitration, Subscriber agrees to that the sole and proper jurisdiction to be the state and city declared in the contact information of the web owner unless otherwise here specified: Riverside, Riverside County, CA. In the event that litigation is in a federal court, the proper court shall be the closest federal court to the Provider’s address.
