We may offer a number of membership plans, including special promotional and introductory plans, pricing offers, or memberships with different limitations. We reserve the right to modify, terminate or otherwise amend our offered membership plans. Unless otherwise stated, “month” or “monthly” refers to Your billing cycle (See "Billing" below)
Your Membership provides You the option to order full text copywritten articles through a third-party distributor (Reprints Desk). In most instances, price estimates are listed. At the end of each month the credit card listed under the primary Account Owner will be charged in full for any outstanding balance for all articles purchased by the primary Account Owner and any sub-accounts associated with the primary Account Owner.
By starting Your Membership, You are agreeing that We are authorized to charge You a membership fee at the then current rate, and any other charges You may incur in connection with Your use of the Service to Your Payment Method (or to a different Payment Method if You change Your account information). Please note that prices and charges are subject to change with notice. As used in these Terms of Service, "billing" shall indicate either a charge or debit, as applicable, against Your Payment Method. The annual Membership fee will be billed at the beginning of the paying portion of Your membership and each billing period for the full 12 months of membership. The monthly membership fee will be billed at the beginning of the paying portion of Your Membership and every 30 days thereafter. Visit our website and click on the "My Account/Order History” to see the next payment date for Your next renewal period. We automatically bill Your Payment Method each month, quarter, or year on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of Your paying membership. Membership charges are fully earned upon payment. You acknowledge that the amount billed each month may vary from month to month for reasons that may include differing amounts due to promotional offers, changes in sales tax law, and You authorize us to charge Your Payment Method for such varying amounts. For certain Payment Methods, the issuer of Your Payment Method may charge You a foreign transaction fee or related charges. Check with Your bank and credit card issuers for details.
Membership Payments are nonrefundable and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods unless You are upgrading Your Membership from a solo practitioner membership to a law firm membership. At any time, and for any reason, We may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our members ("credits"). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at Our sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle You to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance. We may change the fees and charges in effect, or add new fees and charges from time to time, but we will give You 30 days advance notice of these changes to the primary account holder’s email. If You want to use a different Payment Method or if there is a change in Payment Method, such as Your credit card validity or expiration date, You may edit Your Payment Method information by visiting our website and clicking on the "My Account" link, available at the top of the pages of the Website. If Your Payment Method reaches its expiration date and You do not edit Your Payment Method information or cancel Your account (see, "Cancellation" below), You authorize us to continue billing that Payment Method and You remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. Regardless of placing a hold or order cancel of payment through Your credit card company, You will still be wholly responsible for the outstanding balance of Your membership. Any outstanding balance may be submitted to a 3rd party collection agency or an attorney and You understand that personal information associated with Your account will be provided to this agency for purposes of bill collection.
Your membership offers You access to the listed services on the Concierge page of the Website. Concierge is an optional consultation service not included in Your annual membership fee. It is billed hourly and the current rate is $200.00/hour. Concierge is a research consultation service, currently including, but not limited to: Psychological Article Exhibit Research, Topical Psycholegal Summaries, Customized Analytics Reports, Psychological Test Fact Sheets, “Ask An Expert” Telephone Consultation, Client Information Resources, Questions For Experts and Witnesses, Locate An Expert, and Customized Requests. Those services may change, include additions, or be eliminated in their entirety at any time by either notice on the childcustodyanalytics.com website, or by e-mail notification. By making a request for a service listed on the Concierge page You understand that all services are billed at the then current posted rate, rounding up for any partial hour in 15 minute increments. You understand that We reserve the right to establish the completion deadline for all requests, without exception. By submitting a request for a service listed on the Concierge page, (“Place Order”) Your request will be reviewed by Us and You will be provided a written price estimate (by e-mail) for the requested service. By responding affirmatively to the price estimate in writing (e-mail, fax, letter), You authorize Us to immediately charge the full amount of such estimate to the credit card listed under the primary Account Owner associated with the member name and e-mail making the request. A final invoice will be provided upon completion by e-mail which amount may exceed the estimate, and the credit card listed under the primary Account Owner will be charged in full at the time of completion for any outstanding balance. If there is a credit, it will be refunded to the credit card under the primary Account Owner. You understand that the actual price may vary from the price estimate and in a rare occasion the variation could be significant.
4.5 Ongoing Membership
Your Membership, which may start with a free trial period, will continue annually unless and until You cancel Your annual membership or we terminate it. You must cancel Your Membership before the expiration of Your previous Membership twelve month period in order to avoid billing of the next month's annual Membership fees to Your Payment Method. We will bill the annual Membership fee to the Payment Method You provide to us during registration (or to a different Payment Method if You change Your account information). You will be informed through Your account settings on the website and/or by e-mail no less than 30 days in advance of Your renewal date.
The Account Owner has access and control over the Child Custody Analytics account and sub-accounts associated with the Membership. The Account Owner's control is exercised through use of the Account Owner's password and therefore to maintain exclusive control, the Account Owner should not reveal the password to anyone. In addition, the Account Owner should not reveal the Payment Method details (e.g., last four digits of their credit or debit card, or their email address) associated with their account.
To cancel, visit Our website, log in to “My Account” and click "Order History” and “View"" and “Cancel Membership” on the Account Settings.
