- Agree to these Terms;
- Provide true, complete, and up-to-date contact and billing information;

By using the Service, you represent and warrant that you meet all the requirements listed above, and that you won’t use the Service in a way that violates any laws or regulations. Note that by representing and warranting, you are making a legally enforceable promise. You have access to and may become familiar with the Terms directly on the Website. These Terms may be altered at any point in time, at the discretion of Royaltie. Enforceable terms and conditions consist of those published on the Website, binding as of their date of registration. At all times, you are solely responsible for remaining knowledgeable about, and in compliance with, these Terms.
Royaltie may refuse service, close accounts of any Members, and change eligibility requirements at any time.
When you sign up for an account and agree to these Terms, the Agreement between you and
Royaltie is formed, and the term of the Agreement (the “Term”) will begin. The Term will continue for as long as you have a Royaltie account or until you or we terminate the Agreement in accordance with these Terms, whichever happens first. If you sign up for an account on behalf of a company or other entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to accept these Terms and enter into the Agreement on its behalf.
We may change any of the Terms by posting revised Terms on our Website. Unless you terminate your account, the new Terms will be effective immediately and apply to any continued or new use of the Service. We may change the Service, Add-ons, or any features of the Service at any time, and we may discontinue the Service, Add-ons, or any features of the Service at any time.
If you don’t agree to the amendments or to any of the terms in this Agreement, your only remedy is to cancel your Account or to cease to use Royaltie’s solutions. Royaltie shall not have any obligation to refund any fees that may have accrued to your Account before cancellation of your Account or cessation of use of any Subscription, nor shall Royaltie have any obligation to prorate any fees in such circumstances.

The simple act of placing an order on the Website implies acceptance, without reserve, of the present Terms.
4. Account and Password
You’re responsible for keeping your account name and password confidential. You’re also responsible for any account that you have access to and any activity occurring in such account (other than activity that Royaltie is directly responsible for that isn’t performed in accordance with your instructions), whether or not you authorized that activity. You’ll immediately notify us of any unauthorized access or use of your accounts. We’re not responsible for any losses due to stolen or hacked passwords. We don’t have access to your current password, and for security reasons, we may only provide you with instructions on how to reset your password. We have the right to update any of your contact information in your account for billing purposes. In addition, you represent and warrant that all information you provide to us when you establish an account, and when you access and use the Service, is and will remain complete and accurate.
As the Account holder, you are responsible for all charges incurred, including applicable taxes, and all purchases made by you or anyone that uses your Account, including your family or friends.
You also understand and acknowledge that Accounts are user rights binding you to such an Account, and that Royaltie does not recognize any transfer of Accounts (including transfers by operation of law) from one Member to any third party. Each customer shall be the sole holder of their own Account.
To cancel your account, you must send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to contact our Team and receive further instructions. In order to process your cancellation request securely and ensure that you are informed of any details relating to your account changes, you will be required to complete a phone or video call with our support team. Failure to do so during our business hours (9am EST to 5pm EST) will result in no action on our part. An email stating that you wish to cancel your subscription does not constitute fulfilment of this requirement, and the cancellation will not be processed until the phone or video call with our support team has been completed.
You are liable for any subscription charges that were processed prior to completing your cancellation, and they are non-refundable. Your cancellation of a subscription will not entitle you to any refund for any charges or fees. Royaltie reserves the right to collect fees, surcharges or costs incurred prior to the cancellation of your Account. In addition, you are responsible for any charges incurred to third-party vendors or content providers before your cancellation.
Royaltie may cancel your Account at any time, in the event that (a) Royaltie closes
We may suspend the Service to you at any time, with or without cause. If we terminate your account without cause, and your account is a paid account, we’ll refund a prorated portion of your monthly prepayment. We won’t refund or reimburse you in any other situation, including if your account is suspended or terminated for cause, like a breach or any violation of the Agreement. If your account is inactive for 24 or more months, we may terminate the account. Once your account is terminated, you acknowledge and agree that we may permanently delete your account and all the data associated with it, including your ads, email marketing campaigns, websites and landing pages. Usernames are unique and can only be used once. If your account has been terminated, the username will no longer be available for use on any future accounts and cannot be reclaimed.
We will give you a refund for the remainder of a prepaid month if we terminate your account without cause. You won’t be entitled to a refund or credit from us under any other circumstances. We may, at our sole discretion, offer a refund, discount or credit.
If, at any time, we record a decline, chargeback or other rejection of a charge of any payable Fees on your Royaltie account (“Chargeback”), this will be considered as a breach of your payment obligations hereunder, and your use of the Service may be automatically disabled or terminated.
In the event a Chargeback is performed, your Account may be blocked without the option to repurchase or re-use it, and any data contained in such Account, including any domains, applications and Third Party Services may be subject to cancellation and Capacity Loss (as defined in Section 5 below).
Your use of the Service will not resume until you re-subscribe, and pay any applicable Fees in full, including any fees and expenses incurred by Royaltie and/or any Third Party Services for each Chargeback received (including Fees for Service provided prior to the Chargeback, handling and processing charges and fees incurred by the payment processor).
If you have any questions or concerns regarding a payment made to Royaltie, we encourage you to first contact our Customer Support team before filing a Chargeback or reversal of payment, in order to prevent the Service from being cancelled and your Account being blocked, and to avoid the filing of an unwarranted or erroneous Chargeback, which may result in your being liable for its applicable Fees, in addition to re-payment of all the Fees applicable to the Service purchased (and charged-back) by you.
We reserve our right to dispute any Chargeback received, including by providing the relevant credit card company or financial institution with any information and documentation proving that the Member responsible for such Chargeback did in fact authorize the transaction and make use of the services rendered thereafter.
8. Loss of Data, Content and Capacity
If your User Account or any subscription related to your User Account are cancelled (whether at your request or at Royaltie’s discretion), it may cause or result in the loss of certain content, features, or capacity of your User Account, including any User Content, End User data or other usage data retained therein, and including any domain name reservation or registration that was included in such Services (“Capacity Loss”). Royaltie shall not be liable in any way for such Capacity Loss, or for saving a backup of your User Account, User Content or End User data. Please also note that additional Fees may apply to re-activation of a User Account and/or any Royaltie Services following their cancellation, as determined by Royaltie in its sole discretion.
9. Orders and Use of the Services
The Service is offered through a paid monthly subscription. When you sign up for an Account or Subscription on our website, you are authorizing us to immediately bill you using the credit card information that you provided, and to bill you the monthly Subscription fee each month for the duration of the Term. New subscriptions purchased on the 1st day of the month through the 25th day of the month will renew and be billed on the same day of each month thereafter. New subscriptions purchased from the 26th day of the month through the 31st day of the month will be renew and be billed on the 25th day of each month thereafter. For example, the first renewal and billing date of a subscription purchased on January 4th will be February 4th of the same year. The first renewal and billing date of a subscription purchased on January 29th will be February 25th of the same year. Subscription fees will not be prorated under these circumstances.
Orders shall be placed exclusively via the Internet on our Website. Automatic order confirmation errors may occur. Please check the automatic e-mail order confirmation for errors and inform us immediately of any discrepancies. You guarantee that all data provided during registration is true, accurate, up-to-date and complete.
Royaltie reserves the right to cancel or refuse any order from a Customer that has litigated or disputed a previous order’s payment.
You consent to receive sales invoices electronically. For each monthly subscription renewal, your electronic invoice will be accessible on the Website. For further information about electronic invoices, please contact our team at email@example.com.
10. Use of Online Advertising
Royaltie’s online advertising uses third-party online advertising networks, whose policies are subject to change from time to time. We do not guarantee that your product(s) and/or service(s) will be approved to advertise through any or all of the third-party networks. Royaltie reserves the right to reject your advertisements and/or terminate this agreement if they do not comply with one or more of our third-party networks’ policies. You will not be entitled to a refund.

Royaltie uses SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption technology for your transactions. Your banking information is not stored by Royaltie. Stored banking information is stored by the Payment Service Provider to bill monthly subscription renewals. Therefore, Royaltie does not have access to private banking details and credit history at any point. To prevent abuses and fraud, Royaltie only stores your address and the transaction time and date. This data remains strictly confidential.
Any attempted fraud or deception, regardless of scope, will immediately lead to further action, as part of which all related transaction data might be forwarded to the authorities.
When you provide payment information to Royaltie or to one of its payment service providers, you establish that you are the authorized user of the card, PIN, key or account associated with that payment, and you authorize Royaltie to charge your credit card or to process your payment with the chosen third-party payment service provider for any purchases or fees chargeable to your account. Royaltie may require you to provide your address or other information in order to meet the Royaltie’s obligations under applicable tax law.
For subscriptions purchased, based on an agreed usage period, where recurring payments are made in exchange for continued use (“Recurring Payment Subscriptions”), by continuing to use the Recurring Payment Subscription, you agree and reaffirm that Royaltie is authorized to charge your credit card, or to process your payment with any other applicable third-party payment processor (such as PayPal), for any applicable recurring payment amounts. If you have purchased any Recurring Payment Subscriptions, you agree to notify Royaltie promptly of any changes to your credit card account number, its expiration date and/or your billing address, or your PayPal or other payment account number, and you agree to notify Royaltie promptly if your credit card or PayPal or other payment account expires or is canceled for any reason.
If your use of the Service and purchases are subject to any type of use or sales tax, then Royaltie may also charge you for those taxes, in addition to the Subscription or other fees published in the Terms.
You agree that you will not use IP proxying or other methods to disguise the place of your residence, whether to circumvent geographical restrictions on account eligibility, to purchase at pricing not applicable to your geography, or for any other purpose. If you do this, we may terminate your access to your Account.
Royaltie does not warrant, nor guarantee, that you will acquire new customers or generate new sales by using our Service. We are providing a set of online marketing tools that, through proper and consistent use, can help you build your online presence and audience to reach more potential customers. You agree that failure to acquire new customers or generate new sales through our Service does not constitute grounds for a refund of your Subscription payments.

25. Applicable Law – Competent Jurisdiction
BECAUSE SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR THE
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, IN SUCH STATES OR JURISDICTIONS, ROYALTIE, ITS LICENSORS, AND ITS AND THEIR
AFFILIATES’ LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY ARBITRATION
Most user concerns can be resolved by use of our support at email@example.com. If we are unable to resolve your concerns and a dispute remains between you and us, this section explains how we agree to resolve it.
YOU AND ROYALTIE AGREE TO RESOLVE ALL DISPUTES AND CLAIMS BETWEEN US IN
INDIVIDUAL BINDING ARBITRATION. THAT INCLUDES, BUT IS NOT LIMITED TO, ANY
CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO: (i) ANY ASPECT OF THE RELATIONSHIP
BETWEEN US; (ii) THIS AGREEMENT; OR (iii) YOUR USE OF THE STORE, YOUR
ACCOUNT OR ROYALTIE SOFTWARE. IT APPLIES REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH CLAIMS ARE BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, STATUTE, FRAUD, UNFAIR COMPETITION, MISREPRESENTATION OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY.
However, this Section does not apply to the following types of claims or disputes, which you or Royaltie may bring in any court with jurisdiction: (i) claims of infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights, including such claims seeking injunctive relief; and (ii) claims related to or arising from any alleged unauthorized use, piracy or theft.
This Section does not prevent you from bringing your dispute to the attention of any federal, state, or local government agencies that can, if the law allows, seek relief from us for you.
Arbitration is a proceeding before a neutral arbitrator, instead of before a judge or jury. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court, and provides more limited discovery. It follows different rules than court proceedings, and is subject to very limited review by courts. The arbitrator will issue a written decision and provide a statement of reasons if requested by either
party. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU AND ROYALTIE ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND TO HAVE A TRIAL BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY.
You and Royaltie agree to make reasonable efforts, in good faith, to informally resolve any dispute before initiating arbitration. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send the other a written notice that describes the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and sets forth the relief sought. If you and Royaltie do not reach an agreement to resolve that claim or dispute within 30 days after the notice is received, you or Royaltie may commence arbitration.Written notice to Royaltie must be sent via postal mail.
YOU AND ROYALTIE AGREE NOT TO BRING OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS OR
REPRESENTATIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR COLLECTIVE
ARBITRATION. THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE
INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENTOF THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM. You and Royaltie also agree not to seek to combine any action or arbitration with any other action or arbitration without the consent of all parties to this Agreement and all other actions or arbitrations.
If the agreement in this section not to bring or participate in a class or representative action, private attorney general action or collective arbitration should be found illegal or unenforceable, you and Royaltie agree that it shall not be severable, that this entire section shall be unenforceable and any claim or dispute would be resolved in court and not in collective arbitration.
Notwithstanding this Section, you have the right to litigate any dispute in small claims court, if all the requirements of the small claims court, including any limitations on jurisdiction and the amount at issue in the dispute, are satisfied.
These terms shall apply to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. If the laws of your jurisdiction prohibit the application of some or all of the provisions, of this section alone, such provisions will not apply to you.
If you believe that your rights are being infringed, please contact us. We respond expeditiously to rights owners and their agents to communicate concerns about any alleged infringement.
Upon receipt of your infringement notice we may take certain actions, including removing information or an item, all of which are taken without any admission as to liability and without prejudice to any rights, remedies or defenses, for all of which we hold an unmitigated discretion to execute. Furthermore, by submitting an infringement notice, you grant Royaltie the right to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, and display its content throughout the world in any media. This includes forwarding your infringement notice to the parties involved in the provision of the allegedly infringing content. You agree to indemnify Royaltie for all claims brought by a third party against Royaltie arising out of or in connection with the submission of your infringement notice.
