For the avoidance of doubt, the cancelation of your Subscription will take effect from the end of the current Subscription period (i.e. the end of the month if it is a monthly subscription, or the end of the subscription year for a 12 month subscription), and you will not be entitled to any refund of any Subscription Fees or Bolt-on Fees paid in advance.

7. Our Services
7.1 We provide the Platform to enable you to gain feedback and insight into your content, including but not limited to games, apps, design, branding, marketing or advertising content.
7.2 You can upload the Customer Property onto the Platform in order for Participants to be able to carry out the Tests.
7.3 You have the option to recruit and manage your own Customer Participants outside the Platform and only use Platform as a test distribution and feedback platform.
7.4 Where you engage Customer Participants to take part in the Tests, you may offer rewards and incentives to those Customer Participants independently of the Platform. You will remain responsible to the Customer Participants for the payment or provision of such direct rewards and incentives and we will have no obligation or liability for such rewards and incentives.
7.5 When you engage Customer Participants, you can direct those Customer Participants to our support team for any technical issues they may exercise during the live test. This support is solely for in-game technical and/or Platform queries they may have and not for queries relating to rewards, incentives or the Customer Property.
Testify Network Participants
7.6 Where you wish to engage Testify Network Participants to take part in the Tests, you can set out your requirements for Testify Network Participants in the Platform.
7.7 Where Testify Network Participants are engaged for participation in the Tests, the selected Third Party Recruiter will be responsible for payment of any incentives or rewards offered to the Testify Network Participants for taking part in the Tests.
7.8 Payments for engaging Testify Network Participants are a Bolt-on Service Fee to your Subscription and as such you will be responsible for payment of this Bolt-on Service via each individual Order on a monthly basis.
7.9 For the avoidance of doubt, Participants are neither employees nor agents of Go Testify but are independent individuals who choose to use the Platform to engage in Tests. We reserve the right not to review or control the content of the Test Responses. We will ensure that all Testify Network Participants agree to a non-disclosure agreement prior to undertaking any Tests on the Platform as default within your Subscription. However, we do not give any guarantee in respect of the quality of the Test Responses and hereby expressly disclaim all liability for the acts and omissions of Participants or for the content or accuracy of the Test Responses or any other screen responses, survey responses, recordings or other Participant feedback data. Your use or reliance on this information is at your sole risk.
Execution of Tests
7.10 You will be responsible for ensuring that the Customer Property is properly uploaded onto the Platform and functioning as expected prior to running any Tests. We will not be responsible for any failure to perform the Tests that is not directly attributable to a fault with the Platform. If any Tests cannot be completed by the Participants as a result of any issues with the Customer Property or any other issues (other than a fault with the Platform), you will remain responsible for any costs incurred with Third Party Recruiters, including any payments or rewards that were to be made to any Participants. You will also remain responsible for any additional Usage Costs incurred on the Platform and will be billed accordingly on your next invoice due.
7.11 Test Responses will be recorded and made available to you via the Platform. Each Subscription will contain an included allowance of recordings as set out in your Subscription. You can purchase an additional allowance of Test Response recordings as a Bolt-on. Any allowance of recordings not used within a Subscription Month will automatically roll over and be available in the following Subscription Month as part of your included allowance. Where you have a monthly Subscription, any unused recordings that have been rolled over will automatically expire after three months. Where you have an annual Subscription, any unused recordings that have been rolled over will automatically expire after 12 months. Each Order will display your available allowance of recordings.

10. Fees and Usage Charges
10.1 In consideration of us providing the Services you must pay our Fees in accordance with this clause 10.
10.2 The Subscription Fees and Bolt-on Fees are the prices quoted on our Platform at the time you set up your Subscription or add the Bolt-on Services.
10.3 The Subscription Fees are payable in advance of usage and will commence from the date your Subscription commences and due on same date each month thereafter.
10.4 The Bolt-on Fees are payable in arrears in the month following the date that they have been incurred.
10.5 In addition to the Subscription Fees and Bolt-on Fees, you must pay any applicable Usage Fees incurred from your use of the Platform and any Services that are outside of your included allowance based on your Subscription Level. The Usage Fees are calculated based on the number of hours of recordings uploaded to the Platform in a Subscription Month at the rates set out on our website. Usage Fees are payable in arrears in the month following the date that they have been incurred.
10.6 We take all reasonable care to ensure that the Fees are correct at the time when the relevant Order was entered into the system. However, please see 10.7 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the Subscription and Bolt-on Services you ordered.
10.7 We reserve the right to increase the Fees from time to time. Where we make any changes to the Fees, we will notify you. Any change to the Subscription Fees will not take effect until the renewal of your Subscription (i.e. the next month, if you are on a monthly Subscription, or the start of the year for an annual Subscription). If you do not wish to pay the increased Fees, you can terminate the Agreement in accordance with clause 6.2
10.8 Our Fees are exclusive of VAT. Where VAT is payable in respect of some or all of the Services you must pay us such additional amounts in respect of VAT, at the applicable rate, at the same time as you pay the Fees.
10.9 It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Services on our site may be incorrectly priced. Where the correct price for the Services is less than the price stated on our site, we will charge the lower amount and if the correct price for the Services is higher than the price stated on our site, we will contact you as soon as possible to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Services at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you. However, if we mistakenly accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may cancel supply of the Services and refund you any sums you have paid.
11.1 The Subscription Fees are payable in advance of each Subscription Month. Any Bolt-on Fees and/or Usage Fees attributable to your use of the Platform and the Service in the previous month are payable in arrears. Prior to the start of each Subscription Month, we will issue you with an invoice that covers the following month's Subscription Fees and Bolt-on Fees and the previous Subscription Month's Usage Fees (a "Monthly Invoice").

Where any taxable supply for VAT purposes is made under this Agreement us, you shall, on receipt of a valid VAT invoice from us, pay to us such additional amounts in respect of VAT as are chargeable on the supply of the Services at the same time as payment is due for the supply of the Services.
11.4 If you fail to make a payment due to us under this Agreement by the applicable due date, then, without limiting our remedies under this Agreement, you shall pay interest on the overdue sum from the due date until payment of the overdue sum, whether before or after judgement. Interest under this clause 11.4 shall accrue each day at 4% a year above the Bank of England's base rate from time to time, but at 4% a year for any period when that base rate is below 0%.
11.5 Where you dispute a payment in good faith, you must immediately notify us by emailing email@example.com and pay the portion of the invoice not in dispute. If you dispute a payment in good faith, the interest payable under clause 11.4 is only payable after the dispute is resolved, on sums found or agreed to be due, from 5 days after the dispute is resolved until payment.
11.6 Where we are unable or unwilling to continue providing access to the Platform under the terms of this Agreement for reasons other than breach of the Agreement by you, we will refund to you a prorated portion of the Subscription Fees and Bolt-on Fees already paid by you in advance for the unused portion of the Subscription, and upon such refund shall have no further liability to you with respect to such discontinuance of Services.
