You will only be provided those Subscription Services that are designated in an order or enrollment submission form that incorporate these Terms of Service by reference.
b. The Subscription Services are accessible through any generally available release (e.g., not a Beta or Release Candidate (RC) release) of Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari or Firefox that has been generally available to the public for at least 3 months and that has not been superseded by a major release (defined as a left of decimal point generally available release).

Subscriber acknowledges and agrees that Subscriber will be responsible for a failure of Subscriber’s Users to comply with the terms in Sections 7 through 17 below.
d. Users. There is no additional charge for adding User accounts. Subscriber’s designated System Administrator and Location Administrators are responsible for ensuring that Users are assigned the appropriate access level. Subscriber is responsible for deactivating a System Administrator’s or Location Administrator’s account when the person associated with that account no longer has a service relationship with the Subscriber. The Subscription Services include the following roles:

iii. a “User” is an employees or independent contractor of Subscriber or its franchisees or licensees who are assigned a username or password by a System Administrator or a Location Administrator.
e. Locations. A “Subscribed Location” is an entity, business unit or service area where goods or services are provided under Subscriber’s trademark or service mark and is licensed to access and use the Subscription Services, such Subscribed Locations must be designated in an agreement between Subscriber and Listen360.
3. Term. These Terms of Service will be effective as of the date of Listen360’s signature on an initial Order Form (“Effective Date”) and remain in effect until (a) all executed Order Forms have expired or been terminated or (b) terminated by either party as permitted by this Agreement. Unless otherwise stated in the Order Form, the initial term of each Order Form will be one year, thereafter the Order Form will automatically renew for successive periods equal to the initial term, unless either Listen360 or Subscriber provides written notice to the other at least 15 days prior to the expiration of the then current term of its intent not to renew.

Listen360 will invoice Subscriber in advance by sending an invoice by mail or email and Subscriber agrees to pay the invoiced amount for the applicable Subscription Fees within 10 days after the invoice date. Subscriber is responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information to Listen360 and complete, accurate and current credit or debit card information if Subscriber elects to pay Listen360 by credit or debit card. All payment obligations are noncancellable after Listen360 receives a Subscriber signed order or enrollment submission and all amounts paid are nonrefundable. If Subscriber elects to pay Listen360 by a credit or debit card, then Subscriber hereby authorizes Listen360 to bill the Subscriber provided credit or debit card monthly in advance for the Subscription Fees applicable to your Subscription Services for each month of the Subscription Term.
