4. Fees, Refunds and No-Risk Guarantee
You agree to pay the fees, in such amount and for such billing frequency as specified during registration, in full prior to any obligation of ProudMouth to perform under this Agreement. You further agree that, upon registering for the services through the Site, you authorize ProudMouth to charge your method of payment (e.g. credit card) for the fee on each anniversary of your registration date, based upon your billing frequency (e.g. monthly, quarterly, annually). Payment of the fees shall be in such amounts and at such times as set forth by ProudMouth through information provided to you and as authorized through the sign-up and registration process. Your account and access to the services provided via the Site may be suspended in the event of non-payment of applicable fees. You represent and warrant to ProudMouth that such payment information is accurate and that you are authorized to use the payment instrument. You will promptly update your account information with any changes (for example, a change in your billing address or credit card expiration date) that may occur.
Your monthly subscription will begin 30 days following the initial set up payment.
You may cancel your monthly subscription after the first full year commitment with ProudMouth at any time by providing 30 days written notice.
Upon cancellation, you will continue to have access to the ProudMouth services through the end of your paid billing term. ProudMouth may change its fees from time to time by posting the changes on the Site, but with no advance notice required for temporary promotions or reductions in fees.
You will also be required to create your own podcast hosting account so your podcasts can be transferred to your personal account.
We do not provide refunds.
All Content Creation and fees are retainer-based. You, the client, are responsible for providing the recorded content and direction for our team to assess. If content is not provided ProudMouth will find content that they deem relevant to be repurposed and curate it and missed services will not qualify for refunds or make-up episodes.
If the Content Creator cannot find content to repurpose that is relevant to your brand and messaging and they are unable to receive the content from you they will not be able to add it until direction and content are supplied. Since Content Creation is a retainer fee, you will not receive a refund or make-up episodes in place of episodes that were not able to occur due to lack of scheduling by you, the client.
You, the client, are responsible to use ProudMouth after payment and lack of use will not result in refunds or credit of any kind.
Canceling as a client of the Managed Influence Accelerator Service (referred to as MIAS going forward)
Our MIAS plan requires a 1-year commitment. As outlined in our proposal you will agree to your monthly rate and your contract renewal will be 12 months after the set up fee is paid. Prior to the last payment of your contract, you will be set up on a monthly plan at your applicable rate.
Once payment goes through for an annual plan, there are no refunds available.
If a plan is canceled before 1 year, our team will continue to do work for you (provided you provide the recorded content) until the end of the billing cycle (that full year) but cannot give partial credit or refunds.
These plans are annually recurring (meaning at the end of the billing cycle you will automatically be charged again for year 2 at the applicable rate during renewal).

10. ProudMouth is A Retainer Service
We are unable to make up any services you do not submit or record. This means if you don’t schedule recordings or provide us with content , we are unable to create your content.
You are assigned a dedicated Client Success Coordinator from our team.This team member has a specified number of hours dedicated to work on one client each day.
A great way to avoid missing any recordings is to create a monthly recurring schedule. This means you will always have the recordings scheduled in your calendar and allows you to plan ahead to record your preferred number of episodes. We will return the completed content to you based on your plan.
Should you choose not schedule your podcasts on a regular basis, it is up to you to ensure that you are booking your podcast recording(s) in a timely manner, schedule changes and/or cancellations, may not always allow for adequate time to produce your episodes on a regular cadence and you may be subject to “rush” fees if you require an episode to be released with quicker turn around times.
