RMEV provides users who enter into this Agreement with access to a barn management software application at StableSecretary.com, to a mobile version of that application, and other related services. The applications and any data or other material that users provide are hosted by third parties using “cloud” technology and systems. RMEV assumes no responsibility for any actions or failures by such third parties. You are STRONGLY ADVISED to retain separate files of all data and other material that may be provided. You are responsible for gaining access to the Site, the Applications and the Services and that access may involve third party fees (such as Internet service provider fees). You are responsible for all such fees. In addition, You must provide and are responsible for all equipment necessary for You to access the Site, the Applications and the Services.

Your Representation on Use. Subscriber represents that he is in the business or hobby of managing a barn and/or horses, and is subscribing for the Services solely to use them in the manner for which they are intended, i.e. to assist in barn and horse management, and for no other purpose. Subscriber understands that he is not acquiring the right to copy, modify or otherwise reproduce or use any of the software or any of the look and feel of the Services or any part thereof other than in accordance with this agreement, and that any such action may violate the copyrights or other rights of RMEV. RMEV reserves the right to refuse to accept or to cancel the subscription of any person who is not involved in the management of a barn or horses, who copies or intends to copy or make any unauthorized use of the Services, or for any other reason, in its sole and absolute discretion.

Your Registration Obligations. Prior to accessing or using the Site, the Applications, or the Services, You must subscribe for and establish an account (“Your Account”) with RMEV, which includes providing all registration data requested by RMEV. You agree to maintain and promptly update Your Account registration data for any changes. Accounts registered by automated methods are not permitted. You must provide your full name, a valid email address, a valid billing address, and credit card number, and any other information requested in order to complete the signup process.

Fees and Payment.

Fee List. RMEV has established a list on the Site of the fees for access to and usage of the Applications and for other common Services (the “Fee List”). For any Services desired by You that are not listed on the Fee List, the fees for such Services (“Special Services”) are subject to agreement between you and RMEV. RMEV reserves the right to decline to provide Special Services. RMEV reserves the right to modify the Fee List and the Services listed thereon from time to time in its sole discretion. Any such changed fees for access to and usage of the Applications or for Services shall be effective as of the beginning of the next monthly billing cycle for Your Account.

Commitment To Pay. You agree to pay to RMEV the relevant fees for use of the Applications and Services You choose for Your Account. Unless otherwise stated, all charges are not refundable. You affirm that You will be responsible for all such charges, even if Your Account is canceled or terminated. In case of non-payment or insufficient payment, RMEV reserves the right to immediately interrupt any use of the Applications and Services to Your Account until the payment issue has been formally settled between RMEV and You. If You are disputing a billing error, RMEV encourages You to first contact RMEV Support to resolve any disagreement to avoid having your Account interrupted. In the event of nonpayment or insufficient payment, RMEV reserves the right to terminate access to the Applications and all Services to Your Account.

We accept credit cards issued by U.S. banks. If a credit card account is being used for a transaction, RMEV may obtain preapproval for an amount up to the amount of the payment. If you enroll to make recurring payments automatically, all charges and fees will be billed to the credit card you designate during the setup process. If you want to designate a different credit card or if there is a change in your credit card, you must change your information online. This may temporarily delay your ability to make online payments while we verify your new payment information. You represent and warrant that if you are making online payments that (i) any credit card, debit card and bank account information you supply is true, correct and complete, (ii) charges incurred by you will be honored by your credit/debit card company or bank, (iii) you will pay the charges incurred by you in the amounts posted, including any applicable taxes, and (iv) you are the person in whose name the card was issued and you are authorized to make a purchase or other transaction with the relevant credit card and credit card information.
