Sponsorships and Incentivised Reviews
Purchasing a sponsorship on our platform allows you to boost visibility and improve your brand’s outreach. When users reach a directory page, sponsored companies are listed on top by default, designated by a sponsored tag. A sponsorship does not affect your ranking or position on our Leader’s Matrix, nor does it guarantee any amount of traffic, leads, business, or sales. Sponsorships only affect your position on our company listings.
All storefront purchases, including your purchase of sponsored or start-up plans, are considered as subscriptions. The terms of your agreement with us, in relation to the product you subscribe to, will last for the duration of the term you choose to remain subscribed to our services. When purchasing any of our services, you agree to pay the applicable fee agreed upon at the time of purchase as well as all applicable fees and taxes. You also agree to pay your dues on time as specified in your purchase agreement failure to do which can lead to the termination of your services. You can make payments using credit/debit cards, bank transfers/ACH-enabled bank accounts issued by a financial institution recognized by us. By purchasing our services, you agree to be charged a recurring subscription fee, either by us or any payment agent of ours, as set forth in the invoice. This includes all applicable fees, charges, and taxes, as well as additional charges that you may incur if you choose to upgrade your subscription with us. If you wish to upgrade your subscription, you must make the necessary payments to us on a pro-rata basis through your upcoming billing cycle. In the case of an upgrade or downgrade, you shall continue to use your then-current subscription until the next billing cycle, beyond which both your subscription and applicable pricing will be adjusted accordingly. All changes made to subscriptions will continue billing at the original schedule but at the updated price post the nearest billing cycle.
Subscriptions renew automatically on a month-to-month billing cycle. If you wish to cancel your subscription, you'll need to provide a non-renewal/cancellation request (at [email protected]) at least five business days prior to your next billing date for any termination request to be effective on time.
If the payment provider you use with us fails to process your payment or reaches its exhaustion/expiration, you'll be held responsible for any uncollected/unpaid amounts. Failure to update your payment information or to cancel your subscription gives us the authority to bill your existing payment provider, as well as the right to terminate your subscription.
Your obligation to pay our fees continues as long as your subscription period lasts or you cancel your subscription. Applicable taxes are based on payment information provided by you at the time of purchase. You can suspend or cancel your subscription at any time by contacting [email protected].
By purchasing our services, you acknowledge GoodFirm's right to cancel, terminate, suspend, or restrict your access to our services without any notice or liability beforehand, with or without cause, such as (without limitation) failure to pay applicable fees. We also hold the right to revise, change, modify, upgrade, add to, or reduce the quality, availability, and nature of our services/products. We may do so at any time, for any reason, including without limitations, to comply with applicable regulations or laws, without any prior notice, at our sole discretion. We reserve the right to test, modify or remove altogether any products or services we offer which can affect, without limitation, how customer access and pay for our services.
We take no guarantees with respect to the result/outcome of using our product/service offerings. You agree and acknowledge to be responsible for the payments due under this agreement, despite any changes, modifications, or evolution to GoodFirm's services/products that may occur throughout the term.
