(a) Payments due upon signing. Upon submitting a signed and completed Agreement, you will be obligated to deliver to us, in the amount(s) set forth on your Membership Details form, the set-up fee. CSC reserves the right to require a service retainer to be held as a retainer for performance of all your obligations under this Agreement and is not intended to be a reserve from which fees may be paid. In the event you owe us other fees, you may not rely on deducting them from the service retainer, but must pay them separately. Subject to the complete satisfaction of your obligations under this Agreement, we will return to you by ACH within thirty (30) days (or earlier if required by applicable law) the service retainer, or any balance, after deducting outstanding fees and other costs due to us after the latest of (1) the termination or expiration of this Agreement, (2) the date on which you provide to us all account information necessary for us to make such payment, and (3) your complete performance of all your obligations under this Agreement, including any obligations applicable following termination or expiration of this Agreement.

During the term (defined in the Membership Details form above) of this Agreement, we will process payment for your Additional Services Subscription Fee and other then-outstanding fees, in advance, monthly and no later than the fifth (5th) business day of each month. You shall be responsible for having the necessary funds available in your payment account as of the first (1st) day of the month. The Additional Services Subscription Fee set forth on the Membership Details form covers the Services for only the number of members indicated in the Membership Details form. Additional members will result in additional fees as set forth on the schedule. New members can be added and effective immediately with credit card payment.

On each anniversary of the start date, the Annual Membership and Additional Services Subscription Fees may increase to $75.00, and office space fees may increase by three percent (3%) of the previous year’s fees.

(d) Overage fees. Each month, you will receive a certain number of credits for conference room use, copies, printouts, and other products and services we may offer from time to time, as specified on the Membership Details form.

The current overage fee is set forth in the Membership Details form. All overage fees are subject to increase from time to time with thirty (30) days prior written notice.

If you elect to pay via direct withdrawal, you are required to maintain sufficient money in your bank account to pay the fees described in this Agreement and to inform us promptly of any changes to the account. If you elect to pay via credit card, you are required to inform us promptly of any changes to your credit card information and must ensure that you replace such credit card and update the relevant information prior to its expiration date. Changing your payment method may result in a change in the amount required under this Agreement to be held as the service retainer. Only a single checking, savings, or credit card account may be used at any given time to make payments under this Agreement. If payment via credit card fails on two occasions, we may require you to make payments via direct withdrawal.

 

(g) Outstanding fees. When we receive funds from you, we will first apply funds to any balances which are in arrears and to the earliest month due first. Once past balances are satisfied, any remaining portion of the funds will be applied to current fees due. If any payments remain outstanding after we provide notice to you, we may, in our sole discretion, withhold Services or terminate this Agreement in accordance with Section 5(c).

If the start date is a regular business day, you will need to receive an approved time from CSC Station management to reduce noise and confusion for other members. Members must request use of the elevator for moving materials, and only the protected elevator can be used for moves. Arrangements need to be made in advance to protect the elevator. Unless otherwise set forth on the Membership Details form, following the commitment term, this Agreement shall continue on a month-to-month basis (any term after the commitment term a “renewal term”). The commitment term and all subsequent renewal terms shall constitute the “term.” If no commitment term is indicated on your Membership Details form, the default commitment term shall commence on the start date and end one (1) month after the start date. This Agreement will continue until terminated in accordance with this Agreement.

 

(b) Cancellation prior to start date by you. You may cancel this Agreement prior to the start date

upon delivery of notice to us. If you terminate more than one (1) full calendar month prior to your start date, you may be entitled to a refund of your set-up fee, less any applicable charges, expenses, or deductions. If you terminate within one (1) full calendar month prior to your start date, you will not receive any refund.

 

(c) Termination after the start date by you; changes in office space. Except as set forth in this section, you may terminate this Agreement by delivering to us the written notice (“Termination Notice”) at least one (1) full calendar month prior to the month in which you intend to terminate this Agreement (“termination effective month”). The termination will become effective on the last regular business day of the termination effective month; provided that the Agreement is not terminable during the commitment term. During the commitment term, if you deliver a Termination Notice to CSC Station at least one (1) full calendar month before the end of the commitment term, you may terminate the Agreement as early as the last regular business day of the commitment term. Any Termination Notice delivered to CSC Station during the commitment term but less than one (1) full calendar month before the end of the commitment term shall become effective in accordance with the rest of this Section 5(c). For instance, if you would like to terminate this Agreement on the last regular business day of December, the last opportunity to deliver the Termination Notice to us would be on November 30. The Termination Notice needs to be signed by the authorized signatory. You will not be entitled to pro ration with respect to the last month’s Additional Services Subscription Fee. For instance, if you vacate your office space before the last regular business day of December, you will still owe us the full Additional Services Subscription Fee for the month of December. On the last regular business day of the month, you must vacate the office space no later than 4:00 p.m. Changes in office space, to the extent you have already occupied a different office space, will also require compliance with the termination obligations set forth in this Section 5 for the office space being vacated.

You will be responsible for paying any fees reasonably incurred by us regarding such removal. Following the termination or expiration of this Agreement, we will not forward or hold mail or other packages delivered to us.
