4. PAYMENT TERMS
Monthly or Annual Fees. The up-front fee or subscription fee and any other applicable fees, such as cancellation fees, payable by the employer Users, are as set out in the Pricing Agreement between the Company and the employer User and forms a part of these terms as Schedule “A” (if applicable) (the “Pricing Page”), as amended and updated from time to time by the Company and the employer User, unless a valid promotional code entered during the signup process permits otherwise.
Payment from employer Users will be due upon delivery of an electronic invoice from the Company to the User or via a third party service, as applicable. Any amounts payable by the User hereunder which remain unpaid thirty (30) days of the invoice date shall bear interest at the rate of 2% per month or 24% annually, or the maximum amount allowable by law (whichever is less), such interest to be calculated on a daily basis from the date the payment becomes overdue until the date payment is made in full.
Payment to a candidate/worker User from a completed job posting. A candidate User will receive payment for completed work placements in an amount consistent with the original job posting or with the Pricing Page agreed between the Company and the employer User (as applicable), from either the Company or the employer User. If the Company is responsible for payment of the candidate User, the terms of such remittance will be set out in the Pricing Page. If the employer User is responsible for payment to the candidate User, then the Company disclaims any liability to due with payment disputes between the employer User and the candidate User. If the employer User is responsible for payment to the candidate User, the employee User shall indemnify and hold harmless us and our officers, directors, shareholders, employees, agents, and representatives, from and against any and all damages, judgments, liability, costs and expenses (including without limitation any reasonable legal fees), in whole or in part arising from a candidate’s claim for non-payment.

Users that use the Product during a trial period and do not register for the Product after the free trial period will have their account terminated at the end of the free trial period, and employer Users will still be responsible for the successful work placement fee payable to the Company in accordance with the Pricing Page.
We may terminate our relationship with You immediately at any time and for any reason including, but not limited to, a breach of these Terms under the following circumstances:
a) if You have not adhered to any or all the provisions of the Terms (such as a failure to pay fees when due) or if it appears that You do not intend to or are unable to comply with the Terms, such determination to be made solely at our discretion;
