Users of TimeSolv’s Outsourced Legal Billing service agree to carefully review and approve, prior to authorizing the issuance of billing invoices, any modifications or additions to billing entries made by TimeSolv personnel as well as the invoices themselves.
3. YOUR OBLIGATION TO PAY FEES
You agree to pay all subscription, service and use fees, if any, that TimeSolv charges you for any of the Services. Such fees will be posted on TimeSolv’s website and may be changed by TimeSolv at any time and from time to time by providing you with 30 days prior notice. You agree to pay all costs (including attorneys’ fees), if any, incurred by TimeSolv in collecting overdue fees from you, and to pay a late charge on any overdue fees at a rate equal to the lesser of 1.5% per month or the maximum allowed under applicable law. You also agree to pay all foreign, federal, state and local taxes applicable to your access, use or receipt of the Services.

4. ACCESS, PASSWORDS AND SECURITY
You choose, in your sole discretion, authorized users of your account and you provide and assign usernames and passwords to any such users. In issuing usernames and passwords you accept full responsibility for safeguarding your account and protecting it from unauthorized access, including without limitation, terminating the access of those parties whom you no longer wish to have access to your account, e.g., terminated employees. You agree to inform each authorized user that, as your agent, each is bound by these TOS, as the same may be amended and supplemented from time to time.
You agree to immediately notify TimeSolv if you become aware of any loss or theft or unauthorized use of any of your user name(s), password(s), and/or other personal or company identification numbers that may be assigned to you by TimeSolv, billing data, registration information or payment authorization information.
TimeSolv agrees to exercise reasonable care to prevent any unauthorized person or entity from gaining access to your registration information, payment authorization information, billing data, user name(s), password(s) and any other personal or company identification numbers that may be assigned to you by TimeSolv. The security of your information and data may be maintained through the use of data encryption, data security protocols, passwords and other methods which TimeSolv may employ, or which TimeSolv may suggest or require that you employ from time to time. Personnel handling accounts for users of TimeSolv’s Outsourced Legal Billing service are trained to protect the confidentiality and accuracy of data uploaded to TimeSolv and used to edit billing entries and prepare invoices. They are also contractually required to protect the confidentiality of any data to which they have access. You acknowledge and agree that TimeSolv shall not be liable for any damages incurred by you or any third party in connection with any unauthorized access to or disclosure of such information or data resulting from your actions or from your failure to act, or the actions or failure to act of a third party, or the failure of electronic or other security measures.
In order to protect the confidentiality of such information, you agree to use software produced by third parties, including, but not limited to, “browser” software that supports a data security protocol compatible with the protocol used by TimeSolv. Until notified otherwise by TimeSolv, you agree to use software that supports the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol or other protocols accepted by TimeSolv and follow TimeSolv’s log-on procedures for Services that support such protocols. You acknowledge that TimeSolv is not responsible for notifying you of any upgrades, fixes or enhancements to any such software or for any compromise of data transmitted across computer networks or telecommunications facilities, including, but not limited to, the Internet.
TimeSolv will not disclose any time or billing data or other data about your clients that you enter unless compelled to do so by law. If TimeSolv is ordered to make such disclosure, TimeSolv will use its reasonable efforts both to notify you and to allow you the opportunity to oppose such disclosure. TimeSolv also will not disclose information regarding you or your account with TimeSolv. TimeSolv reserves the right, however, to disclose information about you or your account to appropriate authorities if there is a reasonable basis to believe that there is illegal activity, breach by you of the TOS or in the event of an emergency.
5. STORAGE OF BILLING DATA
TimeSolv shall indefinitely retain billing data for active accounts. Data for terminated accounts will be maintained for a period of 12 months from the date of termination of the respective account.

TimeSolv will post notice of periodic interruptions of the Services or “maintenance windows” from time to time to perform such activities and no reduction of payments will be made in the case of such temporary interruption of Services or “maintenance windows” previously posted. In the event of a temporary interruption in Services that is outside of such “maintenance windows” and is caused by a failure in TimeSolv’s Software or servers or network connections, TimeSolv shall issue to you credits, to be used against future service fees, in an amount equal to the pro rata portion of any fees that may have been paid by you for the portion of the Services not furnished to you as a result of such interruption in Services, provided, however, that in no event shall TimeSolv be liable for interruption or delays in transmission or errors or defects in transmission or failure to transmit caused by causes beyond its control, including without limitation acts of God or failure of any Internet backbone provider. In no event shall TimeSolv be liable for any damages due to interruption of Services.

WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, YOU AGREE THAT THE TOTAL LIABILITY OF T imeSolv ARISING OUT OF ANY KIND OF LEGAL CLAIM (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE) IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH THE SERVICES WILL NOT EXCEED THE AMOUNT YOU PAID FOR THE SERVICES IN THE PAST SIX MONTHS.
