3. Payment Terms and Disputes.
The following payment terms shall apply to Buyer's account under this Buyer Agreement:
(a) Buyer will pay in advance for leads (i.e., Names) by selecting a pre-payment amount ("Deposit") to be charged on Buyer's credit card equal to 50% of the maximum number of leads that Buyer would like to receive in a month. The setup fee shall also be charged on Buyer's credit card.
(b) Each time a Name is provided to Buyer, a charge shall be made to reduce Buyer's Deposit in an amount equal to the price of each such Name. When Buyer's Deposit falls below 25% of the value of such Deposit, as adjusted, payment will automatically be drawn against Buyer's credit card to bring the level of the Deposit to its original value.
(c) Buyer shall be responsible to pay all applicable sales, use, and other taxes and all duties which are levied or imposed by reason of the transaction(s) contemplated hereby, excluding, however, income taxes on net profits which may be levied against Leadbot LLC.
(d) If Buyer's card is not successfully charged or there is a charge-back, and the amount of the price of the Names to be charged equals or exceeds the original Deposit, Buyer's account may be suspended and/or its reserved geographic areas may be forfeited, at Leadbot LLC' sole discretion. Under such circumstances, a loss of priority on Leadbot LLC network may occur. When the Deposit has been successfully reestablished, Buyer's account may be reactivated, in Leadbot LLC' sole discretion, subject to any setup fees.
(e) If Buyer or Leadbot LLC terminates this Buyer Agreement or Leadbot LLC terminates service to Buyer, any balance owing to Leadbot LLC is due and payable within 5 business days from the date of such termination.
(f) Buyer shall reimburse Leadbot LLC for all amounts expended by Leadbot LLC in attempting to collect any amounts due to it by Buyer, including attorneys' fees and costs incurred in connection with such collection efforts.
(g) Buyer must notify Leadbot LLC within 10 business days after receiving the Name if Buyer has any dispute regarding the receipt of such Name. Buyer may not challenge the accuracy of a Name unless Buyer has contacted Leadbot LLC regarding the accuracy of a Name as required under Section 2(c) of this Buyer Agreement. Unless disputed within such 10-day period, the billing attributable to the Names provided by Leadbot LLC to Buyer will be deemed accurate, due and payable by Buyer and final.
(h) If the number of leads returned in any given month is greater than 20% of the total leads received in that month, Leadbot LLC' system will automatically reject the lead recall request. Buyer may challenge that determination through the online lead recall system at http://www.leadbot.com/contact.html. From the Support tab, Buyer shall click on the lead ID of the rejected lead, and select the button that says "I disagree, and will provide more information".
(i) If Leadbot LLC, at its sole discretion, determines that an adjustment is due and owing to Buyer, Leadbot LLC, shall credit Buyer for the amount of such adjustment by adding such amount to Buyer's Deposit.
