Such charges shall be made in advance, either monthly or in accordance with any different billing frequency stated in the applicable Order Form or Statement of Work. If the parties agree to a payment method other than a credit card, Mapdwell will invoice Subscriber in advance and otherwise in accordance with the relevant Order Form or Statement of Work. Unless otherwise stated, invoiced fees are due within 30 days from the invoice date for non-credit card payments. Subscriber is responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information to us and notifying us of any changes to such information. Late payments may bear interest at the rate of 1.5% per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less) from the payment due date until paid in full. You will be responsible for all reasonable expenses (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by us in collecting such delinquent amounts. Amounts due from Subscriber under this Agreement may not be withheld or offset by Subscriber against amounts due to Subscriber for any reason. We are not responsible for any bank fees, interest charges, finance charges, overdraft charges, or other fees resulting from charges billed by Mapdwell.

The payment of any taxes, charges or fees required to be deducted or withheld from payments due to us, and the filing of any information or tax returns with respect thereto, shall be your responsibility. Upon your reasonable request, we will provide you with any existing tax forms in our possession that would reduce or eliminate the amount of any such withholding or deduction for taxes.
