This Contract is established with a duration of three (3) years from the date of acceptance of the Contract. By default, there are no retention clauses in this Agreement, unless they have been previously agreed to in the sales offer accepted by the CLIENT.

The CLIENT may terminate this Agreement at any time, provided that the termination is given in writing and explicitly states the desire not to continue using the service. This notice will be provided with at least sixty (60) days’ notice.. If this is not done, the customer must pay the equivalent to those 60 days monthly.

The main elements relating to the duration of this contract are set out below:

  • Period of Initial Subscription: The initial subscription period will begin on the start date of the contract and expires on the date that the Contract ends.

Once the Contract has expired, contract renewal rates will be treated as they are set out in the Duration provision of this contract. The discounts agreed to in this Agreement cannot be accumulated and used in future budgets and contracts.

All expenses and taxes that come from the execution, performance or termination of this Contract and the obligations arising therefrom will be calculated and charged to the related party expressly in each case.

Late payments for the amount set out in this Contract will incur a monthly 10% surcharge on the amount of the monthly price.

Once the CLIENT has been notified by ATHENTO about any non-payment issues, and once the account is 60 days in arrears and the payment plan has not been negotiated, ATHENTO will undertake judicial proceedings against the CLIENT for the outstanding amount on the Athento Cloud Services until the CLIENT meets its payment obligations.

Below, we have set out the elements to be considered regarding the prices detailed in the present Contract:

Our prices and limits are set out at:
  • Payment with credit cards: CLIENTs paying with credit cards authorize the charges and all fees payable, to their credit cards or bank accounts at the beginning of each billing period.

  • Sales tax: The rates quoted in this Contract, as well as those published on Athento’s  website Athento, do not include taxes, which ATHENTO charges accordingly. The CLIENT agrees to pay any taxes applicable to their use of the subscription service. If the Customer is obliged to deduct or withhold any tax, the amount deducted or withheld as required by law must be paid, meaning that ATHENTO must receive full payment for the full amount, as if there were no deduction or withholding.
  • Direct Debit fees: CLIENTS located in countries outside the European Union who use wire transfers as their method of payment assume the entire cost of transaction, so that ATHENTO receives the full price specified in the offer accepted by the CLIENT. 

6. Changes or extensions to services

The expansion of Business Services and hours of engineering (Product settings) training, including plug-ins, or acquisition of new products or services, will generally be budgeted separately.
