2.5. Messages. If the Services enable you to send messages or similar Content to third parties ("Messages"), you are solely responsible and liable for the Content of your Messages, for the manner in which you send them, for the timing of sending them, and generally for the consequences of sending them (for example, you shall ensure your Messages do not violate any Laws relating to privacy, anti-harassment, or anti-spamming).

This Section (Payments) applies to Paid Squire Services, as well as to Third Party Services Fees.
4.1. Pricing for Paid Squire Services.

Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, while we try and ensure that all prices on the Site or Services are accurate, errors may occur (including, but not limited to, mispricing in our catalog). If we discover an error in the price of a Paid Squire Service you have purchased, we will inform you of this as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your purchase at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you, we will treat the purchase as cancelled. If we cancel the purchased in such cases, and you have already paid for the Paid Squire Service, you will receive a refund or credit in the amount of the price you paid. Except as expressly stated otherwise in this Agreement, Fees are non-refundable, non-cancellable, and without right of setoff.
4.2. Third Party Services Fees.

Any amount not paid by you when due will accrue interest on a daily basis until paid in full, at the lesser of the rate of one and a half percent (1.5%) per month or the highest amount permitted by applicable Law. If you believe that we have invoiced you incorrectly, you must contact us no later than ten (10) days after receiving the invoice in which the alleged error appeared; otherwise you shall be deemed to have accepted the invoice and waived all claims in connection therewith.

You will be charged according to the applicable exchange rate at the time you make your purchase.
4.6. Payment Method Processing. You represent and warrant that all payment and billing information provided is (and will remain) complete and accurate, and you have the right to use, and have obtained all necessary consents to enable, the necessary Payment Method, and make your purchase with such Payment Method.

4.7. Verification. When deciding whether to accept your purchase, we may use certain information about you, including information provided to us by our third party identity verification and fraud alert partners. For example, we may pass on your details for them to check against certain public and private databases and to provide an assessment to us. This will help to protect you and us from fraudulent activities.

In addition, you acknowledge and agree that when you click on any “SUBMIT”, “I AGREE”, “I ACCEPT”, or similar button, you are submitting a legally binding electronic signature. Pursuant to any applicable Laws, including without limitation the United States Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act, P.L. 106-229 (the "E-Sign Act") or other similar statutes, YOU HEREBY AGREE TO THE USE OF ELECTRONIC SIGNATURES, CONTRACTS, ORDERS AND OTHER RECORDS AND TO ELECTRONIC DELIVERY OF NOTICES, POLICIES AND RECORDS OF TRANSACTIONS INITIATED OR COMPLETED THROUGH THE WEBSITE OR SERVICES OFFERED BY SQUIRE.
14.5. Feature Specific Terms. Certain Services features and functionalities may be accompanied by separate or additional terms and conditions (in each case, "Feature Specific Terms"). Except to the extent expressly stated otherwise within Feature Specific Terms, all Feature Specific Terms apply in addition to (and not instead of) this Agreement, and are hereby incorporated into, and made a part of, this Agreement by reference.
14.6. Assignment. Squire may assign this Agreement (or any of its rights and/or obligations hereunder) without your consent, and without notice or obligation to you. This Agreement is personal to you, and, except as permitted by this Agreement, you may not assign (or in any other way transfer) this Agreement (or any of its obligations or rights hereunder) without Squire's express prior written consent.

14.8. Severability.

In the event such court does not exercise the power granted to it as aforesaid, then such provision will be ineffective solely as to such jurisdiction, and will be substituted (in respect of such jurisdiction) with a valid, legal and enforceable provision that most closely approximates the original legal intent and economic impact of such provision.

Except as may be expressly stated otherwise in this Agreement, no right or remedy conferred upon or reserved by any party under this Agreement is intended to be, or shall be deemed, exclusive of any other right or remedy under this Agreement, at law or in equity, but shall be cumulative of such other rights and remedies.
14.11. Waiver. No failure or delay on the part of any party in exercising any right or remedy under this Agreement shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such right or remedy preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or remedy. Any waiver granted hereunder must be in writing (for waivers by you, emails will be acceptable; for waivers by Squire, the writing must be duly signed by an authorized representative of Squire), and shall be valid only in the specific instance in which given.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, use of the open source software will be subject to the license terms and conditions applicable to such open source software, to the extent required by the applicable licensor (which terms and conditions shall not restrict the license rights granted to you hereunder), and to the extent any such license terms and conditions grant you rights that are inconsistent with the limited rights granted to you in this Agreement, then such rights in the applicable open source license shall take precedence over the rights and restrictions granted in this Agreement, but solely with respect to such open source software. Squire will comply with any valid written request submitted by you to Squire for exercising any rights you may have under such license terms and conditions.
14.21. Your Resources. Except for any goods and services that Agreement expressly requires Squire to provide, Squire is under no obligation to provide any goods or services.
