If you are exempt from paying taxes, you must provide proof of such exemption, which in some jurisdictions includes an original certificate, which meets the applicable legal requirements attesting to the exemption status. Any tax exemption will apply only as of the date PartaExpress is satisfied with the satisfactory proof of exemption, in its sole discretion. If PartaExpress does not charge taxes, you are responsible for determining whether any taxes are due, and if so, for remitting any applicable taxes to the appropriate taxing authorities in your jurisdiction.
To the extent that the applicable Fees are variable based on the terms of the subscription you selected, you expressly waives the right to receive advance notice of the amount to be debited to the payment method before a payment is debited.
If your payment method cannot be debited for any reason, PartaExpress will send you a written notice and may suspend your access to the Platform 10 days after sending such notice if you fail to make full payment of the Fees due.
