2. Fees and Payment
- Election and Fees. The fees for the Services are set forth on the Trovata fees page (” Fees Page “), which is incorporated into and made a part of this Agreement, or in a separate written agreement between you and Trovata. You agree to pay Trovata the fees indicated for the Services plan you select. Fees will be charged to your Payment Method on the day your Services plan selection goes into effect and will cover fees for your Services plan selection for the period indicated. Thereafter, your selected Services plan will automatically renew for successive terms and the applicable fees will continue to be charged to your Payment Method on a recurring basis until you cancel or change your Services plan selection, and you hereby authorize Trovata to charge your Payment Method for such recurring charges. The amount of the recurring charge will be the then-current fee applicable to the Services plan and term you selected. You acknowledge that the amount of the recurring charge may increase if the applicable fee increases. You may upgrade, downgrade or cancel your Services plan selection at any time. Plan downgrades or cancellations will take effect only at the end of your current term and must be made at least 3 business days prior to your next renewal in order to avoid billing of the next renewal period’s fees at the prior rate. Services upgrades will take effect immediately and you will be charged a prorated fee for the remainder of your current term based on the difference in price between your current plan and the upgraded plan. Stated fees do not include any related taxes (including without limitation sales and use taxes, duties or other governmental taxes or fees), all of which are your responsibility and will be charged to your Payment Method in addition to the fees.
- Payment Method. Trovata may, from time to time, offer various payment methods, including without limitation payment by credit card, debit card, or direct debit. You authorize Trovata to charge you for Services through the payment method you select when purchasing the Services (the ” Payment Method “) and you agree to make payment using such Payment Method(s). Trovata may, from time to time, receive and use updated payment method information provided by you or that financial institutions or payment processors may provide to us to update information related to your Payment Method(s), such as updated expiration dates or account numbers. Certain Payment Methods, such as credit cards and debit cards, may involve agreements between you and the financial institution, credit card issuer or other provider of your chosen Payment Methods (the ” Payment Method Provider “). If Trovata does not receive payment from your Payment Method Provider, you agree to directly pay all amounts due upon demand from Trovata. Your non-termination or continued use of the Services reaffirms that Trovata is authorized to charge your Payment Method.
- Current Information Required. You agree to provide current, complete and accurate billing information and agree to promptly update all such information (such as changes in billing address, credit card number or credit card expiration date) as necessary for the processing of all payments that are due to Trovata. You agree to promptly notify Trovata if your Payment Method is canceled (for example, due to loss or theft) or if you become aware of a potential breach of security related to your Payment Method. If you fail to provide any of the foregoing information, you acknowledge that your current Payment Method may continue to be charged for Services and you remain responsible for all such charges.
- Payment Matters. If your payment method fails or your account is past due, Trovata reserves the right to either suspend or terminate your use of the Services. You agree to submit any disputes regarding any charge to your account in writing to Trovata within 60 days of such charge, otherwise such dispute will be waived and such charge will be final and not subject to challenge. You agree to reimburse us for all collection costs. Trovata reserves the right to charge you interest at a rate of 1.5% per month on any overdue amounts, or the maximum rate permitted by applicable law, whichever is lower. All fees and charges are nonrefundable and there are no refunds or credits for any partially used Services except (a) as expressly set forth in this Agreement, the Fees Page or a separate written agreement between us; (b) as otherwise required by applicable law; or (c) at Trovata’s sole and absolute discretion. Fees for the Services may be payable in advance, in arrears, per linked bank account or as otherwise described on the Fees Page or in a separate written agreement between us.

- Arbitration. READ THIS PARAGRAPH CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES THE PARTIES TO ARBITRATE THEIR DISPUTES AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM TROVATA. For any dispute with Trovata, you agree to first contact us at legal@Trovata.io and attempt to resolve the dispute with us through good faith discussions. In the unlikely event that we have not been able to resolve a dispute after 60 days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute or controversy (excluding any claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as provided below) arising out of or in connection with this Agreement (collectively, ” Claims “), by binding arbitration by JAMS, under the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect for JAMS, except as provided herein. JAMS may be contacted at http://www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration will be conducted in San Diego County, California, unless you and Trovata agree otherwise. Each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules, and the award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this paragraph shall be deemed as preventing either you or Trovata from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or other violation of either party’s confidential information or intellectual property or other proprietary rights.
- Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver. ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND TROVATA ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OF ANY KIND.
