You agree that any registration information you give to Work4 Labs will always be accurate, correct, and up to date.
2.3 You agree to use the Services only for purposes that are permitted by both (a) these Terms; and (b) any applicable law, regulation, or generally accepted practices or guidelines in the relevant jurisdictions (including any laws regarding the export of data or software to and from the United States or other relevant countries).

5.2 After the expiration of any such free trial, or if you are not given a free trial, you must provide to Work4 Labs or its payment processing partners a valid credit card number and related information or other accepted payment method in order to use or continue using a paid account. If you do not, any paid account you have will be downgraded to a free account.
5.3 Paid accounts will be billed monthly (immediately upon subscribing and on the first day of every month thereafter until cancelled) or annually (immediately upon subscribing and on the first day of January 1 of every year thereafter until cancelled), depending on the frequency of billing selected at the time of subscription. The initial payment will be pro-rated according to the length of the initial billing period.

5.5 If you subscribe to a paid account, or upgrade your subscription to a higher tier, you authorize Work4 Labs and/or its payment processing partners to charge your credit card, or obtain funds via other applicable payment method, for any payment due and all future payments according to the terms of your credit card agreement or other applicable payment method agreement, any terms and conditions made available to you by our payment processing partners, and all applicable law, to all of which you agree to be bound.

10. General Provisions
10.1 The Terms constitute the whole legal agreement between you and Work4 Labs and govern your use of the Services (but excluding any services which Work4 Labs may provide to you under a separate written agreement), and completely replace any prior agreements between you and Work4 Labs in relation to the Services.
10.2 You agree that Work4 Labs may provide you with notices, including those regarding changes to the Terms, by email, regular mail, or postings on the Services.
10.3 You agree that if Work4 Labs does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy which is contained in the Terms (or which Work4 Labs has the benefit of under any applicable law), this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of Work4 Labs rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to Work4 Labs.
10.4 If any court of law, having the jurisdiction to decide on this matter, rules that any provision of these Terms is invalid, then that provision will be removed from the Terms without affecting the rest of the Terms. The remaining provisions of the Terms will continue to be valid and enforceable.
10.5 You acknowledge and agree that each member of any group of companies of which Work4 Labs is the parent or subsidiary shall be third-party beneficiaries to the Terms and that such other companies shall be entitled to directly enforce, and rely upon, any provision of the Terms which confers a benefit on (or rights in favor of) them. Other than this, no other person or company shall be third-party beneficiaries to the Terms.
10.6 The Terms, and your relationship with Work4 Labs under the Terms, shall be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. You and Work4 Labs agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the city and county of San Francisco, California to resolve any legal matter arising from the Terms. Notwithstanding this, you agree that Work4 Labs shall still be allowed to apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.

Work4 Labs does not share or sell user information with others except for the purpose of providing the Services, when it has your express permission, or when it becomes necessary to share such information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of these Terms, or as otherwise required by law.
