The terms and conditions set forth herein constitute the full and complete Agreement between you and CathoNet, LLC, ("CathoNet"). If you have separate agreements signed by hand by CathoNet, those agreements supersede this agreement. Where CathoNet uses Providers (Right Networks, Intuit, Microsoft, etc.) to provide services (Right Networks Services, QuickBooks software, Microsoft software, etc.), use of those services are governed by agreements between you and their respective Providers. By using the www.cathonet.com, any CathoNet Services, or any Provider Services (collectively "Services") you agree to all applicable terms of this Agreement and any agreement posted by a Provider in the course of using any of the Services.
CathoNet charges Account Set-Up Fees, Service Fees, and Consulting Fees where applicable. All such fees are subject to change with 30 days notice. A list of current fees is available on the CathoNet website. Unless otherwise specified in any offer or promotion, the fees published on the CathoNet website are applicable to all transactions between you and CathoNet. Setup Fees apply from the moment you place an order with CathoNet. Service Fees apply from the moment the setup work is completed until Termination (below) regardless of your use of the Services or whether your access has been suspended. Consulting Fees apply under the terms of a Consulting Agreement.
CathoNet reserves the right to offer subsequent promotional rates which may or may not be more favorable than the terms under which you entered this agreement. Any such periodic special rates shall not effect the then existing rights and responsibilities of each party. CathoNet reserves the right to change the rate charged for any such fee under this agreement with 30 days notice. Promotional offers and rates may not be combined. To the extent that you qualify for any promotional rates or special offers offered by CathoNet, these terms and conditions may be modified by the terms and conditions of the promotion or special offer. In such a case, the terms and conditions of the promotion, to the extent they differ from the terms and conditions expressed herein, govern. Past due accounts are subject to revocation of any or all discounts at CathoNet sole discretion. If any of your accounts are past due in any three separate service periods, you grant CathoNet the right to contact all users associated with your accounts for direct billing.
CathoNet charges a non-refundable set up fee as well as its periodic service fee which in some cases may be refundable as further set forth elsewhere herein. Depending on the Services you order from CathoNet, CathoNet may also charge you additional fees and specifically reserves the right to institute additional charges upon notice to you. CathoNet reserves the right to alter, change, amend or delete charges at its sole discretion. CathoNet further reserves the right to institute new Services and charge fees in association with the provision of such new services as it deems appropriate. Periodic services fees are due for a period if the service was available for your use in the period regardless of whether the service was used in that period.
If you pay for CathoNet Services through a reseller, terms regarding the resellers fees supersede the above part of this section with respect to such terms. CathoNet may be required by its suppliers to pay fees in relation to hosting supplier's software and CathoNet charges such fees through to its users; you agree that the supplier is solely responsible for the existence of such fees.
CathoNet does not charge for your use of software when you are using traditional software licenses (as distinguished from leased/subscription or "as-a-service" software licenses). CathoNet is in no way renting or sublicensing such software and does not offer such software on an application service provider or time-sharing basis because CathoNet fees are not for use of such software, but for your lease of the hosting platform, for maintenance of this platform, and for support for your use and the availability of this platform. CathoNet charges for use of software that you lease through CathoNet including any use of Microsoft Office but excluding any use of Intuit products except those explicitly leased through CathoNet.
Payment of Setup Fees and Service Fees must be made by credit card (American Express, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover) or bank transfer (bank transfer is available only upon approval, additional fees may apply) or other method at CathoNet sole discretion. Payment for all Services are due at the commencement of any service period, unless specifically stated otherwise in the offer or promotion pursuant to which you have ordered or are ordering the Services. All payments shall be made in United States Dollars.
Payment by Credit Card or Bank Transfer: prior to activation of your user account and at any applicable time thereafter you authorize CathoNet to charge the credit card provided by you or transfer funds from the bank account provided by you for the amount of the fees due for the agreed upon Services, together with any applicable set-up charges, registration fees, bank transfer fees, or fees resulting from Services provided in addition to or in excess of the previously agreed-upon limits, or any other charges outlined herein as may be applicable.
You further authorize CathoNet to perform like transactions for all subsequent service periods and other applicable fees on or during a reasonable period in advance of the commencement of any such subsequent period until such fees are collected. It is your responsibility to provide CathoNet with up-to-date credit card or bank transfer information that is sufficient to pay all fees due to CathoNet when those payments are due. If for any reason the credit card or bank transfer information you provided is insufficient to pay any fees at the commencement of any service period, CathoNet at its sole discretion will have the right to suspend and/or terminate your account under the TERMINATION section of this Agreement. Refusal or rejection of any charge or any portion thereof is grounds for account suspension and/or termination at the sole option of CathoNet under the TERMINATION section of this Agreement.
Refunds of Service Fees will be made only for pre-payment of Service Fees beyond the renewal date following the effective notice and termination of this agreement under the TERMINATION section of this Agreement provided and only when pre-payment did not result in any discount or waiver of any fees. CathoNet does not refund fees paid for software licenses. CathoNet may grant refunds under any other circumstance it deems appropriate without waiving any other rights hereunder. CathoNet is not responsible for refunds of any fees paid by you to any third party or delivery of any services purchased by you from any third party. The party that CathoNet bills for use of the Services has the right to limit access to those Services. In case of disputes regarding access, CathoNet has the right to limit access to Services at its sole discretion.
If you pay for CathoNet Services through a reseller, terms for payments to resellers supersede this section with respect to payment terms.
You agree to comply with software license agreements for software that you lease through CathoNet, such as Microsoft Office and the Windows Desktop, and will pay for all use of any such applications.

You understand and accept that it is your sole responsibility to ensure that your use of Manufacturer Licensed Software with CathoNet is in compliance with all software license agreements.
You understand and agree that CathoNet is not offering Manufacturer Licensed Software on an application service provider or time-sharing basis, but rather leases the platform on which you use such software. You agree that the relationship of CathoNet to such software license agreements is that of a consultant who maintains computers that are either leased or owned by you.
You grant CathoNet the right to share with the software manufacturer of Manufacturer Licensed Software your respective license information including all license-related keys and numbers for all Manufacturer Licensed Software and all related services provided by the software manufacturer.
CathoNet makes every reasonable effort to maintain the confidentiality of the data stored on the Services ("Hosted Data"). Providers include terms regarding privacy and confidentiality as well in their agreements. CathoNet will provide access to your Hosted Data only to support personnel on a need-to-know basis and to those users you authorize.

CathoNet will use commercially reasonable efforts to effect such requests as soon as practicable after their receipt.
CathoNet makes use of intellectual property of CathoNet including but not limited to CathoNet tools and technologies for QuickBooks data aggregation, financial data restructuring, compilation, and analysis, financial reporting, and customer service. You acknowledge that all right and title to any such CathoNet property shall remain the sole property of CathoNet and that you have no right, title or interest therein. You agree to receive written authorization from CathoNet before performing any security analysis of any CathoNet service. You agree not to attempt to reproduce, reverse engineer, decompile, or disassemble any CathoNet service and you agree that any derivative work is the sole property of CathoNet.
Ownership of your Hosted Data remains exclusively with you and no rights to said data are transferred to CathoNet unless so agreed separately. You are responsible for verifying the integrity of your Hosted Data at least every 90 days.
For periodic Services, the initial term of this Agreement shall be one (1) calendar month with automatic renewal for each subsequent additional month after the expiration of the initial term (each such month a "Contract Term"). CathoNet reserves the right to accept pre-payment of renewal periods and may from time to time offer financial incentives for such pre-payment. The Contract Term, however, shall remain one (1) month.
For any reason set forth herein or in the event that you breach any term of this agreement, CathoNet may suspend or terminate your account by deactivating any access to any information contained on the Services related to your account.

CathoNet reserves the right to terminate your account forthwith and without notice for any breach of this Agreement.
This Agreement and all of its terms shall remain in full force and effect until terminated.

Automatic renewal of this Agreement may be terminated at any time by either party upon fifteen (15) days notice.
Either party may terminate this Agreement immediately and without further notice for cause. Cause for immediate termination exists (a) if any payment for Services is more than fifteen (15) days overdue, (b) in case of any material breach of any of the provisions of this Agreement that is not cured within ten (10) days of the breaching party receiving notice thereof from the non-breaching party, or (c) any breach of the provisions of any Provider agreement.
If your use of the Services is paid for by or through a third party, you understand and agree that the third party has the right to have your account suspended or terminated at any time for any or no reason and that their failure to pay for Services that you use could result in termination or suspension of your access to the Services and/or your Hosted Data.
In the event of any termination under this TERMINATION section, any service fees paid in advance beyond the next renewal date following the notice period under that section may be refunded to you. Such a refund shall not include any set-up fees or other fees which are all non-refundable.
Accounts that are thirty (30) days past due shall be automatically suspended. Accounts suspended for sixty (60) days may be terminated. Suspended accounts may be reactivated subject to a $50.00 reactivation fee in addition to all outstanding balances which shall be paid by Customer prior to reactivation of the account. In addition, account reactivation can require several business days. All past due and unpaid balances are subject to collection through collection agencies. In the event of such collection action, Customers are liable for costs of collection including but not limited to attorney's fees, court costs, and collection agency fees.
