2. B1G1 BUSINESS FOR GOOD MEMBERSHIP RIGHTS
The Business Member account features on the Site and Services and are made available for use only by businesses holding currently-valid Business Member status under the B1G1 Business for Good Programme. Your user status, as well as the renewal dates for your membership, are listed on your account. If you do not hold a current Business Member account, or if you are not a Designated Representative of a Business Member, then your use of these features is unauthorized.
If you hold a Business Member account, the use of business features and B1G1 Business for Good branding are authorized for you throughout your membership term. However, if you have a Monthly or Annual Account:
WHEN YOU REGISTER FOR THE B1G1 BUSINESS FOR GOOD PROGRAM, A RECURRING SUBSCRIPTION IS AUTOMATICALLY CREATED AND YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT (A) B1G1 (OR OUR THIRD-PARTY PAYMENT PROCESSOR) IS AUTHORIZED TO CHARGE YOU ON A MONTHLY, QUARTERLY, ANNUAL, OR OTHER BASIS AS APPLICABLE FOR YOUR SUBSCRIPTION (IN ADDITION TO ANY APPLICABLE TAXES AND OTHER CHARGES) FOR AS LONG AS YOUR SUBSCRIPTION CONTINUES, AND (B) YOUR SUBSCRIPTION IS CONTINUOUS UNTIL YOU CANCEL IT OR WE SUSPEND OR STOP PROVIDING ACCESS TO THE SERVICES IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE TERMS.
To the extent that payment mechanisms are provided through third parties, you agree that B1G1 will have no liability to you arising out of the acts or omissions of such third parties. If applicable, you agree to maintain current billing information. For more information about pricing and subscription plans, please visit our Membership Package information page
Payments are due as stated on your account page; if your payment is overdue by 10 days or more, B1G1 will: (i) suspend the business account and your use of all the business features and branding, and (ii) suspend the availability of any individual features made available to your employee users. However, these suspensions can be released when the payment resumes at any point of time in the future.
Your membership term lasts until the renewal date stated on your account page, and can be renewed at that time at the then-current membership rate for an identical period of time. To ensure ease of use for our members, the memberships are placed on auto-renewal subscriptions.
You may request to cancel your account at any time via the billing page of your account or by writing to the B1G1 Team (email@example.com). Any such cancellation will take effect on the date B1G1 receives written notice of cancellation from you. After your first payment has been made within your first month of being a member, you can request a full refund should you wish to cancel the membership. Membership payments made after one month cannot be refunded. Therefore, your account will stay active until the next renewal date, unless you specifically request deletion of your account before the expiry date.
B1G1 may revise its membership rates at any time; in that event, the revised rates will take effect on the next occurring renewal date for your account. In such occurrences, B1G1 will communicate upcoming changes in writing at least one week before changes are to take effect.
B1G1’s Business Membership carries varied membership duration based on the subscriptions you selected when you registered. Your membership expiry is displayed in your account and we will send you notifications before the renewal/expiry date. However, not responding to the email correspondence during the renewal process may forfeit your ability to extend your membership duration and B1G1 may suspend your account and remove certain data for Data Protection purposes.
Every B1G1 Business for Good membership belongs to the Business Member identified in the account page, and it may not be sold or transferred to another individual or entity without the prior written consent of B1G1, which will not be unreasonably withheld.
3. EMPLOYEE TEAM ACCOUNTS AND THEIR TREATMENT
If your business holds a currently-valid Business Member account under the B1G1 Business for Good Program, you are entitled to a fixed number of Employee Team Accounts depending on the Membership program to which you have subscribed.
More specifically, Employee Team Accounts for each Membership program are allocated as follows:
Automatically Assigned Employee Team Accounts
The purchase of each additional Employee Team Account (over and above what is assigned to you) is subject to a one-time fee of $30 as an initial promotion offer which is subject to change in the future. This fee is non-refundable. Every additional Employee Team Account you purchase will remain valid for the life of your Membership, provided that your Membership remains at the same or a higher Account Level.
If your Membership program includes Employee Team Accounts, you may invite as many employee users as are available to you in your program. Each employee who joins will use up one (1) Employee Team Account.
If you downgrade your Membership program to a lower Account Level, your total number of available Employee Team Accounts will be reduced in accordance with the above chart. Before implementing the downgrade, you will be given the opportunity to identify the specific Employee Team Accounts you wish to remove from your account. If you fail to identify specific Employee Team Accounts for removal, then B1G1 will automatically delete the appropriate number of employee accounts consistent with the above chart, beginning with those accounts having the oldest last login dates. If an Employee Team Account is removed from our system, that employee’s user data will be lost. If you subsequently upgrade your Account Level, any previously-purchased Additional Employee Team Accounts will again be made available (at no additional charge); however, you will need to invite employee users to join again. In case of downgrades that occur due to unintended payment failures, B1G1 will normally retain the employee account records for 3 months. The suspended employee accounts can only be recovered if you upgrade your account within this grace period.
