QicWorks operates on a variable monthly subscription model, paid via credit card.
Monthly subscription fees may include fixed or variable fees, or a combination. This is dependent on account usage, the number of users and services used.
Renewals must be paid in full with funds cleared to ensure uninterrupted services.
QicWorks operates on an auto-renewing variable subscription-based service. We will continue to charge an account owner until their account is cancelled.
By agreeing to these Terms of Service, you have authorised us to arrange for funds to be debited from your credit card. Your credit card will be debited within 3 working days of your service anniversary date. Note: If the date doesn't exist within that month (eg. Sept 31), the billing date will be brought forward to the Sept 30.
It is your responsibility to ensure that there are sufficient funds available in your account to allow a payment to be made in accordance with this agreement. We will continue trying to debit payment from your account daily until successful. If there are insufficient funds in your account to meet a debit payment:
- (a) you may be charged a $135 late fee for our intervention. This late fee will be added to the current outstanding subscription value.
- (b) you must arrange for the payment to be made by another method or arrange for sufficient clear funds to be in your account by an agreed time so that we can process the payment.
If your payment does not go through, our process is:
- at 1 day overdue we’ll send you a reminder email that your payment is overdue.
- at 3 day overdue we’ll send you a reminder email that your payment is overdue and your account is pending suspension.
- At 5 to 7 days overdue - we will suspension your account access until payment has been made and the funds have cleared. (clearing of funds are dependent of payment gateways and the financial institutions) A late fee will be applied for our intervention.
- At one month - If we still haven’t received payment, we will cancel your service and the matter will go to a debt collector agency which will incur additional fees that will be added to your account; you will be sent a letter of demand and the debt collectors will continue to contact you direct.
You can cancel your account at anytime by providing one month’s notice using the close account function "Request Account Cancellation" on your account subscription page. https://www.qicworks.com/settings/subscription.
We can cancel your subscription at anytime with the same one month’s notice period. If you violate these Terms of Service, we may terminate your subscription and access immediately.
The notice period end date will likely differ from your monthly billing date. For example, if your subscription payment date is on the 16th of each month and you cancel your subscription on 10th of July, your final invoice from QicWorks will be for the period 16th July to 10th August.
If your subscription period ends—either because you decide to cancel or disable the account — your access to all QicWorks services, applications, and customer data go through multiple internal stages before the subscription is removed. If you are aware of this progression, you'll be better equipped to return your subscription to an active state before it's too late, or—if you're leaving QicWorks—back up your data before it is ultimately deleted.
If you cancel your subscription, you are agreeing to forfeit any remaining support or training fees/hours.
