If you fail to pay in advance, we may terminate or suspend your subscription services as further described in Section 16 (Termination of Use).
Pre-paid accounts will be billed monthly in advance on the first day of your billing cycle and are non-refundable.
Your billing cycle will depend on your signup date.

Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to see if this change can be made to your account.

8. Account Changes, Upgrades, Plan Adjustments

Notice is deemed to have been given upon new pricing plan(s) being published on our website or when we send you an email notifying you of such change.

13. Location Based Services
Some of the Services contain optional location tracking allowing the determination of Users' locations at the time of clock in and while clocked on. JCards offers location services by a variety of means, each with varying levels of accuracy and trade off. You accept that the service accuracy of the location information can vary depending on the User's situation, i.e. city versus country location, obstructions such as high rise buildings, trees, lifts and tunnels, and generally areas offering low reception or low visibility to GPS. It is up to you to inform your employees and/or other registered Users as required by local laws/regulations that their location may be tracked, and to ensure their Users are appropriately informed on how to use the system. You agree that the use of any location information should only be used for locating employees and/or other registered Users and shall not be used for any other purpose.
When enabled, location information is obtained and attached to clock in and out events.
Additionally, when using location tracking service with our app, adhoc location lookups can possibly be performed when a User is clocked in. This data is also attached to the relevant clock event.
A User may disable location tracking within their mobile phone at any time by deauthorizing access to the phone's location services for the JCards app specifically, or system wide for all apps. The process to do so is device-specific; please consult your device's operating system manual for the proper procedure to deauthorize or limit an app's access.
For the avoidance of doubt location tracking will not occur when the User is clocked out of the Service.

Definition of Confidential Information. As used herein, "Confidential Information" means all confidential information disclosed by a party ("Disclosing Party") to the other party ("Receiving Party"), whether orally or in writing, that is designated as confidential or that reasonably should be understood to be confidential given the nature of the information and the circumstances of disclosure. The User's Confidential Information shall include Data; JCards Confidential Information shall include the Service; any information reasonably requested by JCards with respect to Users's use and experience with the Service, including any issues or suggestions related to such use and experience; and information relating to the performance, reliability or stability of the Service, operation of the Service, or know-how, techniques, processes, ideas, algorithms, and software design and architecture of the Service; and Confidential Information of each party shall include business and marketing plans, technology and technical information, product plans and designs, and business processes disclosed by such party. However, Confidential Information (other than Data) shall not include any information that (I) is or becomes generally known to the public without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, (II) was known to the Receiving Party prior to its disclosure by the Disclosing Party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, (III) is received from a third party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, or (IV) was independently developed by the Receiving Party.
Protection of Confidential Information. The Receiving Party shall use the same degree of care that it uses to protect the confidentiality of its own confidential information of like kind (but in no event less than reasonable care) (I) not to use any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party for any purpose outside the scope of this Agreement, and (II) except as otherwise authorized by the Disclosing Party in writing, to limit access to Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to those of its and its affiliates' employees, contractors and agents who need such access for purposes consistent with this Agreement and who have signed confidentiality agreements with the Receiving Party containing protections no less stringent than those herein. Neither party shall disclose the terms of this Agreement or any order form to any third party other than its affiliates and their legal counsel and accountants without the other party's prior written consent.
Compelled Disclosure. The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party if it is compelled by law to do so, provided the Receiving Party gives the Disclosing Party prior notice of such compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) and reasonable assistance, at the Disclosing Party's cost, if the Disclosing Party wishes to contest the disclosure. If the Receiving Party is compelled by law to disclose the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information as part of a civil proceeding to which the Disclosing Party is a party, and the Disclosing Party is not contesting the disclosure, the Disclosing Party will reimburse the Receiving Party for its reasonable cost of compiling and providing secure access to such Confidential Information.
Each party must implement and maintain effective security measures to prevent unauthorised use and disclosure of the other party's Confidential Information whilst it is in the receiving party's possession or control.
Each party must return, or at the other party's option destroy, all Confidential Information of the disclosing party in the receiving party's possession or control, on the earlier of JCards' request or on termination of this Agreement for any reason.

Without limiting any other right to terminate under this Agreement, if a Force Majeure Event affects a party's performance under this Agreement for more than thirty (30) consecutive days, the other party may immediately terminate this Agreement by written notice.
