3. FEES, PAYMENTS, AND OFFERS
3.1 Fees Charged by TubeSift
We charge fees for the use of TubeSift services. You agree to pay those fees and any associated taxes for your continued use of the applicable service. If our fees ever change, we’ll announce that on our Site. Unless otherwise stated, all fees and all transactions are in U.S. dollars. All fees are exclusive of applicable federal, state, local, or other taxes. You’re responsible for paying any additional fees or taxes associated with your use of TubeSift. Each payment provider is its own company, and TubeSift isn’t responsible for its performance.
3.2 Automatic Subscription Renewals
Fees charged by the use of our Platform may be billed on either a recurring basis or on a one-time basis. If billed on a recurring basis, the fees are payable in advance of the applicable period specified via the Platform. We will automatically bill you for each renewal period until cancellation. By purchasing any TubeSift subscription, you authorize us to keep your payment current by charging your credit card account (or any other means of payment used by you) the applicable fee. You may cancel auto-renewal or cancel your subscription at any time.
3.3 Free or Low-Cost Trials
We may offer free or low-cost (e.g. $1) trials of subscriptions and other products on our Platform. We will inform you of the length of the trial, your renewal period, and the date and amount of your renewal payment. After your free/low-cost trial ends, your paid subscription will begin and we will automatically bill you for each renewal period until cancellation. You can cancel automatic subscription renewals at any time according to the terms and procedures described above. You understand that you are restricted to a one-time use of a free/low-cost trial. Any subsequent use of a free/low-cost trial may result in the immediate termination of any associated subscription without notice. If you improperly obtain a trial, we reserve the right in our sole discretion to charge any payment method you may have provided us for the subscription that was obtained improperly. We reserve the right, in our absolute discretion, to determine your trial eligibility.
3.4 Refund Policy
While we endeavor to provide the highest quality services, we understand that there are circumstances where you may require a refund after signing up. We offer 7 days starting from the time of your INITIAL billing/purchase during which you can request a refund and this will be processed for you. Once your refund request is processed, all rights to use our Services will be revoked for your account. Please note that while you can cancel your subscription at any time, refunds are not allowed for SUBSEQUENT recurrent billings.

We reserve the right to approve or reject any affiliate application in our sole and absolute discretion. TubeSift reserves the right to terminate any affiliate account at any time, for any violations of this agreement in our sole and absolute discretion.

- Failure to disclose the affiliate relationship for any promotion that qualifies as an endorsement under existing Federal Trade Commission guidelines and regulations, or any applicable state laws.

- Self referrals, fraudulent transactions, or suspected fraud.
Any violation of these terms constitutes immediate grounds for TubeSift to terminate the affiliate's participation in the affiliate program and will result in the forfeiture of any commissions due to the affiliate.

20. DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND GOVERNING LAW
We at TubeSift encourage you to contact us if you’re having an issue. In the unfortunate situation where legal action does arise, these Terms (and all other rules, policies, or guidelines incorporated by reference) will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Colorado in the United States, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law. You agree that TubeSift and its Services are deemed a passive website that does not give rise to jurisdiction over TubeSift or its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, assigns, employees, agents, directors, officers, or shareholders, either specific or general, in any jurisdiction other than the State of Colorado. You agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to these Terms, or your use or non-use of TubeSift, shall be filed only in the state or federal courts located in the County of Denver in the State of Colorado, and you hereby consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of these courts for the purposes of litigating any such action. All actions arising out of or relating to this Agreement will be heard and determined exclusively by the state and federal courts located in Denver County, Colorado and the parties hereby consent to and waive any objections with respect to such jurisdiction and venue. You hereby irrevocably waive any right you may have to trial by jury in any dispute, action, or proceeding. In addition, you agree to resolve disputes with TubeSift on an individual basis. You agree not to bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated or representative action. You are expressly waiving any right to participate in class actions, class arbitrations, private attorney general actions and consolidation with other arbitrations.
The provisions of this Agreement are severable. In the event that any provision or portion thereof is found by any court to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable, the remainder of this Agreement will not be affected, and the parties consent to such court's substitution of a valid and enforceable term that approximates the intent and effect of such invalid or unenforceable provision or portion.
22. THE REST
These Terms and the other material referenced in them are the entire agreement between you and TubeSift with respect to the Services. They supersede all other communications and proposals (whether oral, written, or electronic) between you and TubeSift with respect to the Services and govern our future relationship. If any provision of these Terms is found to be invalid under the law, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that the Terms otherwise will remain in full force and effect and enforceable. The failure of either you or TubeSift to exercise any right provided for in these Terms in any way won’t be deemed a waiver of any other rights.
These Terms are personal to you. You can’t assign them, transfer them, or sublicense them unless you get TubeSift’s prior written consent. TubeSift has the right to assign, transfer, or delegate any of its rights and obligations under these Terms without your consent. TubeSift will provide you notice via email or by conspicuously posting the notice on our Site.
