(collectively, “the Service(s)”)
2. Service Plans
- Harbor makes available the Service through paid plans (“Paid Plans”) and trial plans ("Trial Plans"). Current plans are described at https://www.harborplan.com/pricing and Customer’s specific plan will be identified in the Order Form presented when Customer registers, orders or pays for the Service. Customer’s permitted scope of use – such as features available, permitted number of financial advisors or financial planners and other usage limits – depends on the plan that Customer selects and will be specified on the applicable Order Form. Services may not be used by Customer to produce the outputs of the Services en masse for more than the number of advisors specified in the Order Form. Any increase in the number of advisors who benefit from the Services beyond this limit will require an additional use fee or an upgrade to another plan.
- Paid Plans are provided on a subscription basis for a set term designated on the Order Form (each, a “Subscription Term“). Unless otherwise specified on the applicable Order Form, each Subscription Term shall automatically renew for the same period as the then-current Subscription Term unless either party gives the other written notice of termination at least thirty (30) days prior to expiration of the then-current Subscription Term (e.g., monthly Paid Plans will automatically roll over month-to-month and annual Paid Plans will automatically renew for additional 12-month periods).
For Trial Plans, Customer may use the Service in accordance with this Agreement for the limited trial period designated on the Order Form or such other period as may be specified by Harbor (the “Trial Period“). Trial Plans are permitted solely for Customer’s use to determine whether to purchase a Paid Plan. If Customer does not upgrade from a Trial Plan to a Paid Plan at the end of the Trial Period, then Customer’s access to the Service may be limited or suspended (to be determined at Harbor's sole discretion) until such time as Customer terminates this Agreement or converts to a Paid Plan.
Trial Plans may not include all features or functionality offered as part of Paid Plans, and Harbor reserves the right to add or subtract any features or functionality at any time for such plans. Harbor has the right to suspend or terminate a Trial Plan at any time for any reason.
3. Fees and Payment
- Customer will pay Company the then applicable fees described in the Order Form in accordance with the terms therein (the “Fees”). If Customer’s use of the Services exceeds the Service Capacity set forth on the Order Form or otherwise requires the payment of additional fees (per the terms of this Agreement), Customer shall be billed for such usage and Customer agrees to pay the additional fees in the manner provided herein. Company reserves the right to change the Fees or applicable charges and to institute new charges and Fees at the end of the Initial Service Term or then current renewal term, upon thirty (30) days prior notice to Customer (which may be sent by email). If Customer believes that Company has billed Customer incorrectly, Customer must contact Company no later than 60 days after the closing date on the first billing statement in which the error or problem appeared, in order to receive an adjustment or credit. Inquiries should be directed to Company’s customer support department.
- If no payment terms are specified in the Order Form, then the following default terms apply: Payment is due on the Effective Date, or in the event there is a Trial Period, on the first day following the end of the Pilot Period, as measured in calendar days from the Effective Date of this agreement. Except as expressly set forth in Section 10 (Modifications), all fees are non-refundable. Segment reserves the right to increase the rates specified in the Order Form upon any renewal of a Subscription Term.
- Customer is required to pay any sales, use, GST, value-added, withholding, or similar taxes or levies, whether domestic or foreign, other than taxes based on the income of Segment.

- Company reserves the right, under certain circumstances, to require annual billing or ACH payment when circumstances warrant.
4. Term and Termination
- Subject to earlier termination as provided below, this Agreement is effective as of the Effective Date, for the Initial Service Term as specified in the Order Form, and shall be automatically renewed for additional periods of the same duration as the Initial Service Term (collectively, the “Term”), unless either party requests termination at least thirty (30) days prior to the end of the then-current term.
- In addition to any other remedies it may have, either party may also terminate this Agreement upon thirty (30) days’ notice (or without notice in the case of nonpayment), if the other party materially breaches any of the terms or conditions of this Agreement. Customer will pay in full for the Services up to and including the last day on which the Services are provided. All sections of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination will survive termination, including, without limitation, accrued rights to payment, confidentiality obligations, warranty disclaimers, and limitations of liability.
