Payments – Postpaid and Credit cards
You may use LOCALI postpaid services to pay for your advertising campaign. This means that you pay every billing cycle for clicks already done on your ads. This amount may be different every billing cycle depending on the actual performance of your campaign. You can see the full data and information on your advertiser dashboard.
Billing cycle and frequency
LOCALI will typically charge you no more than once per day. However, we reserve the right to charge you more or less frequently at our discretion.
LOCALI pays the PayPal transaction fee (as do all merchants who use PayPal). It’s similar to paying with credit card; the merchant who accepts the credit card pays the associated transaction fees.
There is no additional cost for you to use PayPal for your ads, unless your PayPal account is in a different currency than your LOCALI account. If this is the case, you may pay a foreign exchange fee.
Prepaid And Credits
LOCALI Credits are the only currency that you can use to pay for advertising on the LOCALI Site. LOCALI credits can NOT be cashed out. Subscription points will expire on specific dates that are shown in each user’s account.
License to Use Credits
You acknowledge that the Services include fictional currency (called “Credits”), which constitutes a limited license right to use a feature of our product. The Company may charge fees for the right to use Credits, or may distribute Credits without charge, in its sole discretion. Regardless of terminology used, Credits are governed solely under these Terms, and is not redeemable for any sum of money or monetary value from the Company at any time. You agree that the Company has the absolute right to manage, regulate, control, modify and/or eliminate such Credits as it sees fit in its sole discretion, in any general or specific case, and that the Company will have no liability to you based on its exercise of such right.
Value of Credits and Record Keeping
The purchase price of Credits, the cost of banner clicks is expected to change in accordance with the supply and demand of clicks. The Company reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to make all calculations regarding the balance of Credits in your account, the number and character of Credits in your account, and to determine the number of Credits spent in connection with your activities related to Service. While we will do our best to make all such calculations on a consistent and reasonable basis, you agree that the Company’s determination of the amount of Credits, the number Credits used per click, and number of Credits in your account is final, absent a showing of intentional miscalculation.
Exchanging Credits With Other Users
Any trading, selling or exchanging of Credits among users is not strictly prohibited. Users who participate in such activities do so at their own risk. Users who trade, sell or exchange Credits without a Company program agree to indemnify the Company against any adverse or negative consequences. You acknowledge that the Company (i) may limit sellers, buyers or traders to any group of users at any time; and (ii) may (but has no obligation to) halt, suspend, discontinue, or reverse any Credits transaction (whether proposed, pending or past) in cases of actual or suspected fraud, violations of other laws or regulations, or deliberate disruptions to or interference with the Service.
The Company is in no way responsible for the accuracy, integrity, completeness, quality, legality, usefulness, safety, and IP rights of any forum posts, commentary, ratings or compliments made by one user about other users or groups of users, and has no responsibility to offer other users an equivalent opportunity to respond.
All Sales Final
You agree that all sales of Credits by the Company are final. No refunds will be given, except in the Company’s sole and absolute discretion. All Credits will be forfeited if your account is terminated or suspended for any reason, in the Company’s sole and absolute discretion, or if the Company discontinues providing the Service.
Once a purchase has been made, it is unfortunately not possible for us to recall all copies/deliverables. Therefore, the Company does not accept refunds, returns, or exchanges. No refunds will be given, except in the Company’s sole and absolute discretion.
All widgets, js codes, data files, images and other final published files/deliverables are licensed to you (the end-user) AS IS, meaning that after receiving/getting the code from our Services the end user is not allowed to change or modify anything inside the deliverable. He can use it only as it as provided by the Service.
Bugs And Issues
The Service licensed under LOCALI Site is tested over and over by our QA team; however it may not function correctly, it may have functional, conceptual and/or documentation bugs and issues. In these cases, LOCALI will try to fix the bugs, issues and errors found and will supply the buyer with working updates. The Service is designed especially to let prospective buyers and advertisers test the Service before they make a purchase, this is why a bug found in LOCALI software will not lead to a refund.
