BY INSTALLING ANY OF THE APPs, APIs OR OTHERWISE ACCESSING OR USING THE SERVICE (SUCH DATE OF INSTALLATION, ACCESS, USE OR EXECUTION OF A SALES AGREEMENT FORM, WHICHEVER IS EARLIEST, THE “EFFECTIVE DATE”) YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD, AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS, INCLUDING THE WARRANTY DISCLAIMERS, INDEMNITY, AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY PROVISIONS BELOW.

1. Subscription Term, Renewal and Fees Payment.
1.1. Sales Agreement Form.
1.2. Subscription Term and Subscription Auto-Renewal.
The Service is provided on a subscription basis for the term specified in your Sales Agreement Form, in accordance with the respective subscription plan purchased under such Sales Agreement Form (the “Subscription Term” and the “Subscription Plan”, respectively, and collectively the “Subscription”).
In order to ensure that Customer will not experience any interruption or loss of services, unless otherwise expressly stated in Customer’s Sales Agreement Form, Customer’s Subscription will automatically renew upon the end of the then applicable Subscription Term for successive periods of one year unless either Customer or us cancel the Subscription by written notice at least 90 days prior to the expiration of the then-current term; provided that, if we notify you of a price increase within that period and you cancel your Subscription within 30 days of our delivery of such notice, we will consider that cancellation timely. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, we reserve the right to change the Subscription Fees at any time, upon notice to Customer if such change may affect Customer’s existing Subscriptions upon renewal.
Unless otherwise expressly stated in Customer’s Sales Agreement Form, we will attempt to automatically charge and/or invoice Customer the applicable Subscription Fees upon, prior to, or promptly after the expiration of the then applicable Subscription Term. If Customer wishes to avoid such auto-renewal, Customer shall cancel its Subscription, at least 90 days prior to the expiration of the then-current term, at any time by contacting us via email at email@example.com. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, in case a Customer cancels its Subscription, during a Subscription Term, the Subscription will not renew for an additional period, but Customer will not be refunded or credited for any unused period within the Subscription Term.
1.3. Subscription Fees.
In consideration for the provision of the Service (except for Trial Service), Customer shall pay us the applicable fees per the purchased Subscription, as set forth in its Sales Agreement Form (the “Subscription Fees”). Unless otherwise expressly stated in Customer’s Sales Agreement Form, Subscription Fees are stated in US dollars. Customer hereby authorizes us, either directly or through our payment processing service or our affiliates, to charge such Subscription Fees via Customer’s selected payment methods (including but not limited to wire transfers, electronic wallets, authorized credit card information or any other electronic means), upon due date. Unless expressly set forth herein, the Subscription Fees are non-cancelable and non-refundable.
In the event of failure to collect the Subscription Fees owed by Customer, we may, at our sole discretion (but shall not be obligated to) retry to collect at a later time, and/or suspend or cancel the Services provided to you, without notice.
1.4. Billing; Invoicing.
As part of registering or submitting billing information to the Service, Customer agrees to provide us with updated, accurate and complete billing information, and Customer authorizes us (either directly or through our affiliates, or other third parties) to charge, request and collect payment (or otherwise charge, refund or take any other billing actions) from Customer’s payment methods, designated banking account, electronic wallets or any other electronic means, and to make any inquiries that we (or our affiliates and/or third-parties acting on our behalf) may consider necessary to validate Customer’s designated payment account or financial information, in order to ensure prompt payment, including for the purpose of receiving updated payment details from Customer’s credit card company or banking account or payment service providers (e.g., updated expiry date or card number as may be provided to us by Customer’s credit card company). In the event that Customer requests an invoice and does not autopay, unless otherwise expressly stated in Customer’s Sales Agreement Form, payment is due within thirty (30) days from date of invoice. Late payments shall bear a charge of the lesser of 5.0% per month or the maximum rate permitted by applicable law.
The Subscription Fees are exclusive of any and all taxes (including without limitation, value added tax, sales tax, use tax, excise, goods and services tax, etc.), levies, or duties, which may be imposed in respect of these Terms and the purchase or sale, of the Service hereunder (the “Taxes”), except for Taxes imposed on our income. If Customer is located in a jurisdiction that requires Customer to deduct or withhold Taxes or other amounts from any amounts due to us, please notify us, in writing, promptly at firstname.lastname@example.org and we shall join efforts to avoid any such Tax withholding, provided, however, that in any case, Customer shall bear the sole responsibility and liability to pay such Tax and such Tax should be deemed as being added on top of the Subscription Fees, payable by Customer.
1.6. Discounts and Promotions.
Unless otherwise expressly stated in Customer’s Sales Agreement Form, if Customer received a special discount or other promotional offer, Customer acknowledges that upon renewal of its Subscription, we will renew such Subscription, at the full applicable Subscription Fee at the time of renewal without any special discount or other promotional offer.
1.7. Payment through Reseller.
If Customer purchased a Service from a reseller or distributor authorized by us (“Reseller”), then to the extent there is any conflict between these Terms and the agreement entered between Customer and the respective Reseller, including any sales agreement or purchase order (“Reseller Agreement”), then, as between Customer and us, these Terms shall prevail.
Any rights granted to Customer in such Reseller Agreement which are not contained in these Terms, apply only in connection with the Reseller. In that case, Customer must seek redress or realization or enforcement of such rights solely with the Reseller and not from us. For clarity, Customer’s access to the Service is subject to our receipt from Reseller of the payment of the applicable fees paid by Customer to Reseller. Customer hereby acknowledges that at any time, at our discretion, the billing of the Subscription Fees may be assigned to us, such that Customer shall pay us directly the respective Subscription Fees.
1.8. Subscription Upgrade.
During the Subscription Term, Customer may upgrade its Subscription Plan by either: (i) upgrading to a higher type of Subscription Plan; (ii) adding add-on features and functionalities; and/or (iii) upgrading to a longer Subscription Term (collectively, “Subscription Upgrades”). Some Subscription Upgrades or other changes may be considered as a new purchase, hence may restart the Subscription Term as indicated within the Service and/or the Sales Agreement Form. Upon a Subscription Upgrade, Customer may be billed for the applicable increased amount of Subscription Fees, at our then-current rates (unless indicated otherwise in a Sales Agreement Form), either: (1) prorated for the remainder of the then-current Subscription Term, or (2) whenever the Subscription Term is being restarted due to the Subscription Upgrade, then the Subscription Fees already paid by Customer will be reduced from the new upgraded Subscription Fees, and the difference shall be due and payable by Customer upon the date on which the Subscription Upgrade was made.
1.9. Responsible Entity.
The relevant APG responsible entity shall be the APG entity stated on a validly executed Sales Agreement Form in relation to Services provided to you (“APG Responsible Entity”). Such APG Responsible Entity shall be the only relevant APG entity that shall be responsible for any liability, if any, to you for any claims for loss and damage in relation to such Service. For the avoidance of doubt, you agree and acknowledge that you shall not have (and you hereby fully waive) any claims, demands, suits, causes of action, liabilities, obligations, judgments, orders, debts, liens, contracts, agreements, covenants and causes of action of every kind and nature, whether known or unknown against any APG entity or its affiliates other than the APG Responsible Entity listed on your Sales Agreement Form and in relation to a particular Service provided to you.
2. Term and Termination; Suspension.
These Terms are in full force and effect, commencing upon the Effective Date, until the end of the Service, either paid or unpaid, unless terminated otherwise in accordance with these Terms.
2.2. Termination by Us.
We may terminate the Service and these Terms: (i) upon Customer’s breach of any of the provisions under these Terms, including but not limited to Customer’s failure to make payment in accordance with these Terms; or (ii) in the event where the Customer: (1) becomes insolvent, (2) is generally unable to pay, or fails to pay, its debts as they become due, (3) files, or has filed against it, a petition for voluntary or involuntary bankruptcy or pursuant to any other insolvency law, (4) makes or seeks to make a general assignment for the benefit of its creditors, or (5) applies for, or consents to, the appointment of a trustee, receiver or custodian for a substantial part of its property or business. Upon a termination of the Services and these Terms for any of the foregoing reasons, you hereby acknowledge and agree that APG shall have no responsibility or obligation to refund the prorated portion of any prepaid amount paid by you.
We may also terminate or suspend the Service and these Terms at any time for any reason or no reason and without notice. Where the Service and these Terms are terminated pursuant to the foregoing sentence, we will refund the prorated portion of any prepaid amount paid by you in relation to the unused portion of the Service. In the event we become unable to support a specific Service, we, in our sole discretion, may terminate such Subscription by providing notice to you. In such event, we will refund the prorated portion of any prepaid amount paid by you (and solely with respect to the terminated Service) from the date of such termination.
2.3. Termination by Customer.
Subject to the provisions in Section 1.2, Customer may terminate its Subscription to the Service by cancelling the Service, whereby such termination shall not derogate from Customer’s obligation to pay applicable Subscription Fees. Unless mutually agreed otherwise by Customer and us in a written instrument, the effective date of such termination will take effect at the end of the then-current Subscription Term, and Customer’s obligation to pay the Subscription Fees throughout the end of such Subscription Term shall remain in full force and effect, and Customer shall not be entitled to a refund for any pre-paid Subscription Fees.
2.4. Effect of Termination of Service.
Upon termination or expiration of these Terms, Customer’s Subscription and all rights granted to you hereunder shall terminate. Unless expressly indicated herein otherwise, the termination or expiration of these Terms shall not relieve Customer from its obligation to pay due Subscription Fees. Upon the expiration of the Term you shall (i) immediately stop accessing and using the Services and (ii) clear any client-side data cache derived from the Services.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Sections 2.5, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 13, and 14 shall survive the termination or expiration of these Terms and continue to be in force and effect in accordance with their applicable terms.
Without derogating from our termination rights above, we may decide to temporarily suspend our Service, in the following events: (i) we believe, at our sole discretion, that you or any third party, are using the Service in a manner that may impose a security risk, may cause harm to us or any third party, and/or may lead to any liability for us or any third party; (ii) we believe, at our sole discretion, that you or any third party are using the Service in breach of these Terms or applicable Law; or (iii) Customer’s payment obligations, in accordance with these Terms, are or are likely to become overdue. The aforementioned suspension rights are in addition to any remedies that may be available to us in accordance with these Terms and/or applicable Law.
In addition, we may decide to temporarily suspend our Service in the event that you provide us with written notice (and reasonable supporting information upon request) that your applicable aircraft is not operating or out of service as a direct result of aircraft equipment failure (e.g., broken or being repaired). In such event, provided that you are otherwise in compliance with these Terms, APG, in its sole discretion, may offer you a credit for a limited portion of any prepaid Subscription Fees during such period when your applicable aircraft is not operating or out of service.
3. Our Service.
3.1. Modification or Discontinuation of the Service.
We may add, modify or discontinue any feature, functionality or any other tool, within the Service, at our own discretion and without further notice, however, if we make any material adverse change in the core functionality of the Service, then we will notify you by posting an announcement via the Service or by sending you an email.
3.2. No Contingency on Future Releases and Improvements.
You hereby acknowledge that your purchase or use of the Service hereunder are not contingent on the delivery by us of any future release of any functionality or feature, including without limitation, the continuance of a certain Service beyond its current Subscription Term or dependent on any public comments we make, orally or in writing, regarding any future functionality or feature.
3.3 Takeoff and Landing Data.
When our Service includes supplying takeoff and landing data, it is understood that APG shall utilize the National Oceanic Survey Airport Obstruction Chart, applicable approach plates, and the International Civil Aviation Organization Airport Characteristics Data Bank for the purpose of obtaining airport data for compliance with the relevant regulatory agency requirements. This does not preclude Customer from providing APG with any additional airport data should Customer so desire. In addition to other disclaimers and limitations of liability set forth in these Terms, Customer acknowledges and agrees that APG is not responsible for verifying the accuracy or appropriateness of any data obtained from any governmental agency, aircraft/engine manufacturer, or Customer.

These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of Colorado, USA without recourse to choice of law statutes or principles that would otherwise result in the application of the law of any other jurisdiction. You and us mutually agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to these Terms. Notwithstanding the foregoing, APG reserves the right to seek injunctive relief in any court in any jurisdiction.
13.2. Class Action Waiver.
WHERE PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, YOU AND APG AGREE THAT EACH PARTY MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER PARTY ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. Unless both you and APG mutually agree, no arbitrator or judge may consolidate more than one person’s claims or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
To the extent permitted under applicable law, you and APG hereby irrevocably agree to the following provisions:
13.3.1 Dispute resolution and Arbitration.
Any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and us arising in connection with, or relating in any way to, these Terms (whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and whether the claims arise during or after the termination or expiration of these Terms) will be determined solely by mandatory binding arbitration. In arbitration there is no judge or jury and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages) and must follow the terms of these Terms as a court would.
Notwithstanding clause 13.3.1 above, you and APG both agree that nothing herein will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit either of our rights, at any time, to seek injunctive relief in a court of law. In addition to the above, notwithstanding clause 13.3.1 above, APG may file a suit in a court of law against you to address infringement claims or injunctive relief.
13.3.3 Arbitration Process Rules.
In the event of any dispute, claim or controversy between or among the parties to these Terms arising out of or relating to these Terms or any breach thereof, including, without limitation, any claim that these Terms or any of its parts is invalid, illegal or otherwise voidable or void, whether such dispute, claim or controversy sounds in contract, tort, equity or otherwise, and whether such dispute, claim or controversy relates to the meaning, interpretation, effect, validity, performance or enforcement of these Terms, such dispute, claim or controversy shall be settled by and through an arbitration proceeding to be administered by the American Arbitration Association (or any like organization successor thereto) in Castlerock, Colorado, in accordance with the American Arbitration Association’s Commercial Arbitration Rules. Each of the Parties to these Terms hereby agrees and consents to such venue and waives any objection thereto. The arbitrability of any such dispute, claim or controversy shall likewise be determined in such arbitration. Such arbitration proceeding shall be conducted in as expedited a manner as is then permitted by the commercial arbitration rules (formal or informal) of the American Arbitration Association. Both the foregoing agreement of the parties to these Terms to arbitrate any and all such disputes, claims and controversies and the results, determinations, findings, judgments and/or awards rendered through any such arbitration shall be final and binding on the parties hereto and may be specifically enforced by legal proceedings. Notwithstanding any provision of this these Terms relating to which state laws govern these Terms, all issues relating to arbitrability or the enforcement of the agreement to arbitrate contained herein shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1 et seq.) and the federal common law of arbitration. The award of the Arbitrator shall be final and binding on the parties. The arbitration award shall be enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction. Any motion to enforce or vacate an arbitration award under these Terms shall be kept confidential to the maximum extent possible.
13.3.4 Special Statute of Limitation.
Any arbitration must be commenced by filing a demand for arbitration within 2 years after the date the party asserting the claim first knows or reasonably should know of the act, omission, or default giving rise to the claim; and there shall be no right to any remedy for any claim not asserted within that time period. If applicable law prohibits such limitation period for asserting claims, any claim must be asserted within the shortest time period permitted by applicable law.
13.3.5 Notice; Process.
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other, by certified mail or Federal Express (signature required), or in the event that we do not have a physical address on file for you, by electronic mail (“Dispute Notice”). The Dispute Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought. We agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if we do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Dispute Notice is received, you or us may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or us shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. Without derogating from the generality of the confidentiality protection under Section 6 above, all documents and information disclosed in the course of the arbitration shall be kept strictly confidential by the recipient and shall not be used by the recipient for any purpose other than for purposes of the arbitration or the enforcement of the arbitrator’s decision and award and shall not be disclosed except in confidence to persons who have a need to know for such purposes or as required by applicable law. Except as required to enforce the arbitrator’s decision and award, neither you nor us shall make any public announcement or public comment or originate any publicity concerning the arbitration, including, but not limited to, the fact that the parties are in dispute, the existence of the arbitration, or any decision or award of the arbitrator.
