3. USERS AND SIGNING UP.
The term User means you, together with the business or other entity (including all employees, agents, contractors or assistants) for which you are accessing or using the Service. Under the Terms of Service, any employee of a User shall be deemed to be acting on behalf of that employer at all times. Each User that properly completes the subscription process shall also be considered a User for the purposes of the Terms of Service. GMC may refuse to offer or continue offering the Service to any person or entity and may change its eligibility criteria from time to time.
To become a User, you must complete the subscription process by providing GMC with current, complete and accurate information, as more specifically required by the then current subscription procedures. Users may be required to specify a username and password, and to provide your name, company name, address, zip code, electronic mail address and more; in order to obtain certain aspects of the Service, you must also provide access information related to your accounts at social networking sites; and in order to obtain certain other aspects of the Service, you may be required to provide valid credit card or mobile telephone account information for billing purposes.

You shall pay no later than 14 days from the invoice date for the current period of service.

YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ALL FEES ARE NON REFUNDABLE. Upon expiry of the minimum three month term, GMC will continue to provide the Service and billing will automatically continue on a monthly basis, although you can terminate or amend your subscription on 5 business days' notice, at which point you will avoid any and all future charges. You cannot terminate or request a refund for a billing cycle that has already begun. You will provide a valid credit card for paying accounts and by reading the terms of this Agreement, agreeing and executing, you agree and fully authorize all such charges to the credit card account(s) maintained with GMC.
