Regional Legal Considerations, Export Restrictions

BeeHive is based in the state of Delaware in the United States. The Website can be accessed from countries around the world.  Access to the Website may not be legal by certain persons or in certain jurisdictions. If you access the Website from outside the United States, you do so on your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with all laws applicable to you, including local laws. Access to the Website from jurisdictions where the Website or any of its services or products are illegal is prohibited.

You may not access, download, use or export materials posted to the Website in violation of U.S. export laws or regulations or in violation of any other applicable export or import laws or regulations. You agree to comply with all export laws and restrictions and regulations of any United States or foreign agency or authority.

Without limiting the foregoing, you represent and warrant that you are not located in, and shall not use the Website from, any country that is subject to U.S. export restrictions (currently including, but not necessarily limited to, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan and Syria.

Governing Law and Jurisdiction

These Terms of Use and any dispute or claim arising out of, or related to, them, their subject matter or their formation (in each case, including non‑contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of California in the United States without giving effect to any choice or conflict of laws provision or rule (whether of the State of California or any other jurisdiction).

The sole and exclusive jurisdiction and venue for actions arising under these Terms of Use shall be state and federal courts in Santa Clara County, California, and the parties agree to service of process in accordance with the rules of such courts.

Entire Agreement

The Terms of Use and our Privacy Notice constitute the sole and entire agreement between you and us with respect to the Website and supersede all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations, and warranties, both written and oral, with respect to the Website.  For the avoidance of doubt, these Terms of Use do not supersede other agreements pursuant to which you have been granted the right to use or access a BeeHive product or provided a BeeHive service, except to the extent that these Terms of Use provide Website content or other offerings are not subject to warranty or entitled to support, service credits, refunds, or other service entitlements under a product or services agreement.

Suspensions, Termination, and Cancellation of Services

Subscription modifications are handled through contractual agreements. If you wish to temporarily pause or cancel your service early, you will have the option to do so on your billing dashboard. However, if you have signed a Service Agreement that is not a Revolving Month-to-Month Service, any disputes or modifications will be governed by your existing service agreement. 

Early Termination of Contract-Held Services

We strive to provide services only to clients who truly require and are interested in them. For all Annual/MultiAnnual Contracts, we offer options for credit, refund, or cancellation in case of service disputes within the specified initial "defect" term outlined in your contract. Any modifications or terminations outside of this period will be handled through a Private Agreement with your designated Service Manager. Due to the nature of our digital services, we are unable to accommodate causeless short-term cancellations, as this could potentially be exploited and manipulated. In the event of any dispute, the determination of fault will be made by an impartial third party, and a detailed report will be provided to explain and certify their objective opinion.

Late Payments, Collections, Debts, and Charging Off Debts

We understand that circumstances can change, and sometimes unexpected issues arise. We believe in maintaining a friendly and understanding approach when it comes to billing. If you have an outstanding invoice, we will send you regular reminders to keep you informed about its status. In the event that you receive a "Final Notice" for any unpaid debt, or if an invoice remains unpaid for over 90 days, we may apply a 30% Delayed Payment Surcharge, typically known as a "late fee" or "late payment penalty" to the individual invoice. Any invoices that remain unpaid at the end of your service term will be referred for collections as necessary. To make things easier for you, all our invoices and subscriptions support automatic payments, which can be set up conveniently through our customer payment portal if applicable.

Delinquent, Neglected, or Abandoned Services by-Contract

If a customer fails to fulfill their contractual obligations or abandons their agreement, we retain the right to impose a penalty of up to 50% of the contract's value, which may vary depending on the duration of the abandonment period.

Revenue Recovery and Indemnification

BeeHive partners with Stripe, a leader in payment processing, for secure banking between we, our associates, and our customers.  We issue invoices with 7+ days free for payment scheduling until the payment is due. We offer a self-service dashboard to manage payment available 24/7. We're incredibly flexible by design, and this can, with good will, extend to our customers in times of need.

When we contact you regarding an invoice, or submit an invoice for your payment, we're alleging a valid debt, your patronage indicated by prior documentation we maintain on you and your business. If you do not dispute this within 30 days of receipt, you acknowledge we will find it valid, unless you can prove that you were impersonated or otherwise, that you were not the person making the financial charge. 

We maintain forceful, unfortunately industry-first collection policies against those who attempt to defraud us.

If you have an overdue debt or invoice, you've reviewed and acknowledge that we reserve the right to:

  • Generate, request, and apply consumer credit to your debts without additional consent
  • Transform allegations of a debt into legally binding invoices and dues
  • Assess you civil penalties, such as late fees, insufficient funds fees, bounced payment fees, and related.
  • Assess you legal penalties within a court of law thru due process
  • Charge billing information obtained thru data leaks, breaches, and other offensive activities, to the satisfaction of any filed invoice and/or unaccounted debt, with no pre-required limitations or scope.

In addition, you acknowledge the unusual nature OF offensive revenue recovery, and agree to waive any counterclaim provided under traditional contract law. You agree to resolve all billing disputes within private mediation, paid for by the Company.
