If End Users provide you with user names, passwords, or other login information or personal information, you must make the users aware that the information will be available to your application and to Paperspace.

4. Fees for Use of the Paperspace Services

4.1 Subject to the Terms, some Paperspace Services such as online demos are provided to you without charge up to certain limits. Usage over this limit requires your purchase of additional resources or services. The pricing for additional resources and services is available by request to info (at) Paperspace (dot) com (or via a URL as Paperspace may provide).

4.2 For all purchased resources and services, we will either charge your credit card on a monthly basis or collect payment via other methods as agreed to in writing and described in a Paperspace invoice provided to you. Late payments may bear interest at the rate of 1.5% per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less). Charges are exclusive of taxes. You are responsible for paying all taxes and government charges, and all reasonable expenses and attorneys’ fees that Paperspace incurs in collecting late amounts. To the fullest extent permitted by law, you waive all claims relating to charges unless claimed within 60 days after the charge (this does not affect your credit card issuer rights). Charges are solely based on Paperspace's measurements of your use of the Paperspace Services, unless otherwise agreed to in writing. To the fullest extent permitted by law, refunds (if any) are at the discretion of Paperspace and only in the form of credit for the Paperspace Services. Nothing in these Terms obligates Paperspace to extend credit to any party. You acknowledge and agree that any credit card and related billing and payment information that you provide to Paperspace may be shared by Paperspace with companies who work on Paperspace's behalf, such as payment processors and/or credit agencies, solely for the purposes of checking credit, effecting payment to Paperspace and servicing your account. Paperspace may also provide information in response to valid legal process, such as subpoenas, search warrants and court orders, or to establish or exercise its legal rights or defend against legal claims. Paperspace shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of such information by such third parties. Paperspace reserves the right to discontinue the provision of the Paperspace Services to you for any late payments.

4.3 For all recurring purchases, Paperspace may change its fees and payment policies for the Paperspace Services by notifying you at least fifteen (15) days before the beginning of the billing cycle in which such change will take effect. In addition, changes to the fees or payment policies may be posted on the website (or such other URL Paperspace may provide from time to time). Any outstanding balance becomes immediately due and payable upon termination of the Terms for any reason.

4.4 You may not develop multiple Applications to simulate or act as a single Application or otherwise access the Paperspace Services in a manner intended to avoid incurring fees.
