PLEASE READ THE COMPLETE AGREEMENT THAT FOLLOWS:
- Payment Options and Authorization; Payment Terms; Cancellations; Taxes
- Payment Options. Most purchases of Subscriptions or Premium Services through the Site, Software, or Services, or through our designated third party payment provider, will require a valid, accepted, credit card or other payment method that we, or our designated third party payment provider, as applicable, in our or their sole discretion, elect to accept as payment.
- Payment Terms. For purchases of Premium Subscriptions through the Site, Software, or Services, you authorize us, or our designated third-party payment providers, to charge the credit card or other accepted payment method you designate in the amount specified in connection with the transaction. If you desire to designate a different form of payment, or if there is a change in your payment information, you must update your user account or your account with our designated third party payment provider, as applicable, to reflect such change. You may experience temporary disruption of your access to the Site, Software, or Service while we are verifying new payment information. If you transmit to us, or one of our designated third-party payment providers, a purchase request, you warrant that your use of the particular credit card or other accepted payment method is authorized and that all information that you submit to us, or our designated third-party payment provider, is true and accurate (including, without limitation, your credit card number, expiration date, and other account information), and you agree to pay all fees you incur.
- Changes in the Amount Authorized. If the amount to be charged to you varies from the amount you previously authorized (other than due to the imposition or change in the amount of Sales Taxes, if any), we, or our designated third party payment provider, as applicable, shall provide notice of the amount to be charged and the date of the charge at least 10 days before the scheduled date of the transaction. You agree that we, or our designated third party payment provider, as applicable, may accumulate charges incurred and submit them as one or more aggregate charges during or at the end of each billing cycle.
- Auto-Renewal; Cancellation of Premium Subscriptions. Your Premium Subscription, if any, will be automatically extended for successive renewal periods of the same duration as the Premium Subscription term originally selected by you. You may change or cancel your Premium Subscription at any time during the term of Premium Subscription, including any renewal period, by contacting our designated third party payment provider, as applicable. If you cancel your Premium Subscription after using Cozi account during the Premium Subscription period, your Premium benefits will end immediately.
- Free Trials and Other Promotions. Any free trial or other promotion that provides premium subscriber-level access to the Site, Software, or Service, if any, must be used within the specified time of the free trial or promotion, or if not specified, within six (6) months from the start of the free trial or promotion. At our discretion, we may allow you to continue access to the Site, Software, or Service following the end of the free trial or other promotion, provided that we may change the terms (including whether or not such Site, Software or Services display advertising) and/or fees associated with such access, and at such time, you will be required to elect either to accept such fees or terms or to elect either to accept such fees or terms or your account will be reverted to a Cozi standard account. You may be required to cancel your Premium Subscription before the end of the free trial period or promotional period in order to avoid being charged the then-current, non-promotional Premium Subscription rate and being subject to any new terms. If you cancel prior to the end of the free trial period or promotional period and are inadvertently charged for a Premium Subscription, please contact our designated third party payment provider to have the charges reversed.
- Payments Made Through Partners. The payment methods that we elect to accept for purchase may include one or more payment methods offered by a business partner of Cozi ("Partner"), in which case your payment may be made directly to the Partner and not to us. In such cases, the Partner will be responsible for your payment, including cancellations and refunds, and the terms and conditions associated with your payment will be as set forth in the agreement between you and the applicable Partner.
- Currency. Unless otherwise stated, all fees and charges are quoted and must be paid in U.S. Dollars. Purchases made in currency other than U.S. Dollars shall be made at the exchange rate designated in your agreement with your credit card or other acceptable payment method provider.
- Taxes. Your purchases may be subject to applicable sales tax, use tax, value added tax, or other similar taxes, duties, or tariffs (collectively, "Sales Taxes"). In the event that Sales Taxes apply, we, our designated third party payment provider, or a Partner, as applicable, will collect the required Sales Taxes from you and remit it to the applicable tax authorities. Under most circumstances, the applicability of Sales Taxes will be determined by the residence of the person or entity making the purchase. We will not be responsible for any taxes on net income, or other taxes, duties, or tariffs associated with your acquisition, purchase, or possession of Premium Subscriptions, except for Sales Taxes as described in this section or as required by applicable law.

- Claims of Copyright Infringement
Cozi respects the intellectual property rights of others, and requires that the people who use the Software, the Site and the Services do the same.

If you believe that your work has been copied and is accessible on the Site or the Services in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, you may notify us by providing our copyright agent with the following information in writing:
- The electronic or physical signature of the owner of the copyright or the person authorized to act on the owner's behalf;

506 2nd Avenue, Suite 710
Seattle, WA 98104-2328
Attn: Copyright Infringement
After receiving a claim of infringement, we will process and investigate notices of alleged infringement and will take appropriate actions under the DMCA and other applicable intellectual property laws. Upon receipt of notices complying or substantially complying with the DMCA, we will act expeditiously to remove or disable access to any material claimed to be infringing or claimed to be the subject of infringing activity, and will act expeditiously to remove or disable access to any reference or link to material or activity that is claimed to be infringing. We will take reasonable steps promptly to notify the user that we have removed or disabled access to such material.
Upon receipt of a proper counter notification under the DMCA, we will promptly provide the person who provided the initial notification of claimed infringement with a copy of the counter notification and inform that person that we will replace the removed material or cease disabling access to it in 10 business days. Unless our designated agent first receives notice from the person who submitted the initial notification that such person has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain the user from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on the Site or the Services, we will replace the removed material and cease disabling access to it.
You may provide us with a counter notification by providing our copyright agent the following information in writing:
- Your physical or electronic signature;
- Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;
- A statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled;
- Your name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located, or if your address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which we may be found and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided the initial notification of infringement.
