in the package(s) and option(s) specified.
This Agreement shall commence on the the date specified by CLIENT or
as soon as possible thereafter. The Term of this agreement shall be
month-to-month, with automatic renewal unless terminated by either
party through means of written notice.
CLIENT agrees to pay ASI for all Services rendered at a monthly basis.
Such monthly charges are based on the current price list and the
service options selected by the CLIENT. Services initially indicated
during the setup process are subject to change by request of the
CLIENT without modifying other terms and conditions of this agreement.
All payments are to be made in U.S. Dollars. CLIENT agrees to allow
ASI to charge the balance on any invoice(s) outstanding on the
CLIENT’S account to the Credit Card Number or any other credit card
that CLIENT has provided to ASI once the invoice becomes due and
payable per the terms on the invoice. In the event of currency
conversion, CLIENT is responsible for any transaction or conversion
fees, and any taxes incurred by ASI as a result of such conversion.
ASI Terms are Net-10. An initial Ten Percent (10%) late fee will be
charged on all past due balances, with an additional One Point Five
Percent (1.5%) per month interest charge on all past due balances. If
CLIENT discovers an error on any invoice, CLIENT must notify ASI of
said error within Thirty (30) days of the invoice date. Failure to
timely notify ASI of any mistakes shall be interpreted as a waiver,
and ASI will not be required to act any further on the matter.
CLIENT understands that communication and cooperation with ASI is
essential for ASI to provide the best service possible. Therefore,
CLIENT agrees to timely communicate and cooperate with ASI.

CLIENT acknowledges that ASI provides its services to clients on a
volume basis, and that while every effort is made to carry out such
services to the best of ASI’S ability there may be instances where
mistakes are made. CLIENT also acknowledges that the fees charged by
ASI for its services do not contemplate compensation damages to CLIENT
caused by the occurrence of such error, mistake, or delay, and that if
ASI were to charge fees that did contemplate the assumption of such
risks, that the amount of such fees would be much greater.

for no liability in connection with any mistake, error, or delay in

provided in the Agreement which would have otherwise been payable by
CLIENT to ASI for the rendering of the type of service with the
regard to which it is claimed that mistake, error, or delay was
committed or occurred.
In the event that either party to this contract commences any lawsuit
or legal action or engages a collection agency to enforce any rights
or remedies which it may have under this contract, the prevailing
party in any such action shall be entitled to an award of its
reasonable collection fees and/or attorney's fees and costs. Should
the CLIENT choose to do a chargeback of ASI fees on the CLIENT'S
credit card, and ASI prevails, a fee of $25.00 for each chargeback
will be accessed to the CLIENT'S account.
Upon written notice, any amounts due may be immediately invoiced and
processed for payment. Non-usage of the services contracted for under
