2. FEES CHARGED TO FREELANCERS
Pursuant to the User Agreement, we charge Agencies and Freelancers a Service Fee for each payment their Client makes to the Agency or Freelancer on a Service Contract. We will charge you a flat 5% Service Fee based on the total Freelancer Fees collected by you from your Client (less any refunds or reversals) for the duration of your relationship with your Client (the "Engagement Relationship"). Where applicable, Rally Rockets may also collect taxes (such as value added tax (VAT) in Europe) on Service Fees.
According to the Membership Agreement, we charge Agencies and Freelancers a Membership Fee. These Membership Fees automatically renew until they are cancelled as described on the Site.
Additionally, the use of various Payment Methods offered through the Site and the Site Services may incur added fees or charges. All Payment Methods will be posted on the Site along with any associated fees or charges, which we may update from time to time at our sole discretion. You hereby authorize us to charge to you and to collect from you (consistent with this Agreement, the User Agreement, or elsewhere in the Terms and Conditions of the Service) any fees, charges, or taxes described in this Section 2.
3. CLIENT MEMBERSHIP FEES
Rally Rockets offers several membership plans for Clients, and each includes access to certain features and services of the Site, as described on the Site (each plan a "Client Membership Plan"). Current Client Membership Plans are Basic, Plus and Enterprise. Fees for Client Membership Plans, if any, automatically renew until they are cancelled as described on the Site and this Agreement.
Rally Rockets reserves the right to change membership fees, change the features and services included in each Client Membership Plan, change the membership fees or fees for certain premium services or options, or institute new fees at any time, in each case upon reasonable notice posted in advance on the Site for existing Users. No refunds of fees already paid will be given. If Rally Rockets exercises its right to cancel a membership, Rally Rockets will not refund the membership fee already paid unless otherwise required by law.
Where applicable, Rally Rockets may also collect taxes (such as value added tax (VAT) in Europe) on membership fees and the cost for premium services or features, as outlined in the User Agreement.
3.2 Automatic Membership Renewal
You must pay your Rally Rockets membership fees through your Rally Rockets Account. The membership billing period begins on the date that we receive payment. Rally Rockets membership fees are calculated from the beginning of that billing period. After any free membership period, we automatically renew your Rally Rockets monthly membership, and you irrevocably authorize and instruct us to make the required monthly payments to Rally Rockets on your behalf. Automatic renewal occurs on the first day after the expiration date. You may change your Client Membership Plan at any time according to Section 3.3.
3.3 Changes to Membership Plans
If you change your Client Membership Plan, the new program and new billing period will be based upon the date we receive payment of the new membership fee. If you upgrade a membership, it will result in a new billing date effective upon the date of payment of the additional fees and, if applicable, will result in a credit of the unused portion of the existing category membership fees. If you downgrade a membership, you will not receive a refund or credit for the fees already paid. The downgrade will go into effect at the beginning of the next billing period. Rally Rockets reserves the right to modify its Client Membership Plans at any time, upon reasonable notice posted in advance on the Site.
For more information on upgrading, downgrading, or cancelling your membership, check the Site or contact Customer Support.
4. PAYMENT PROCESSING FEES CHARGED TO CLIENT
Regardless of the type of Payment Method used and Membership Plan selected, we charge Clients a Payment Processing Fee (defined below) as described in this Section 4.
Rally Rockets charges Clients a payment processing and an administration fee of 5% on each payment made by the Client through Rally Rockets (the "Payment Processing Fee").
If payments made by a Client are released to the Client's Account for any reason or refunded by a Freelancer, the Payment Processing Fee will not be refunded.
Rally Rockets Enterprise Clients are charged the rate(s) provided in the applicable Enterprise Client contract and are not charged a separate Payment Processing Fee unless otherwise provided in the applicable Enterprise Client contract.
5. AUTHORIZATION FOR AUTOMATIC PAYMENT OF RECURRING CLIENT FEES
You must pay the Client Membership Plan fees, if any, through your Client's Account. Each Client Membership Plan fee, if any, and each Flat Payment Processing Fee, if applicable, covers a monthly billing period beginning on the date that you first make payment and ending one month later. You irrevocably authorize and instruct us to automatically charge the fees for the Client Membership Plan, if any, to your Client's Account at the beginning of each billing period. This authorization will remain in full force and effect until you change your settings in your Profile to change your Client Membership Plan, otherwise notify us that you wish to revoke your authorization by contacting Customer Support, or cancel your Account.
You can switch between Client Membership Plans at any time, but you will not receive a refund or a credit for any of the Client Membership Plan fee for a given month if you downgrade your membership, including by switching to a free Client Membership Plan, before the end of a billing period.
