4.2 Payment Terms. You will pay Fees via credit card or by other payment type specified in the applicable Order Form. If You are making payments of Fees via credit card, You agree to provide accurate payment information, and hereby authorize ClearSlide to charge such credit card for all Fees set forth in an applicable Order Form for the Contract Term (and any renewal thereof). For payment of Fees by any method other than credit card (for example, check, wire transfer, or ACH), beginning on the start date set forth in an Order Form, ClearSlide shall invoice You for Fees in accordance with the payment frequency stated in the applicable Order Form. You shall pay Fees in accordance with the Order Form. Unless otherwise stated in the applicable Order Form, all payments for which invoices are delivered are due within thirty (30) days after the date of the invoice. If ClearSlide has not received payment of Fees by the applicable due date, then ClearSlide may assess a late fee of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, from the date such payment was due until the date paid and/or condition future Contract Term renewals and Order Forms on payment terms shorter than those specified herein. If You have elected to pay Fees via credit card and the credit card is charged back to ClearSlide or if any Fees invoiced to You are not paid within thirty (30) days of the invoice date, ClearSlide may: (i) with respect to chargebacks, cease charging Your credit card and invoice You for the amount charged back and any future Fees; (ii) accelerate the payment of any Fees payable; (iii) immediately suspend Your access to the Services until payment is made; and/or (iv) immediately terminate the applicable Order Form for which Fees were due and/or terminate this Agreement.
4.3 Taxes. You are responsible for paying, and will pay, all applicable Taxes, and will indemnify and hold ClearSlide harmless from any costs associated with the collection or withholding thereof, including penalties and interest. Unless otherwise stated in an Order Form, the Fees listed on an Order Form are not inclusive of any applicable Taxes. For clarity, Your invoices will include Fees and Sales Taxes. If ClearSlide has the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which You are responsible under this Section 4.3, the appropriate amount shall be invoiced to and paid by You unless You provide ClearSlide with a valid Tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority.
