Fee Terms & Conditions -
Fees – Services – Fees for services will be charged as per the price catalog displayed on the web or agreed upon specifically with the client via verbal or written communications. Fees may be subject to change at any time, and such changes will be final only upon approval from the client unless otherwise stated in any other document signed between GVA and the client.
Delivery method - As a part of our Going Green Initiative (to reduce paper waste in the workplace), all documents to be sent to the clients as per our services agreement, are sent via e-mail or online delivery via web applications. It is the customer’s responsibility to keep a valid e-mail on file with GVA in order to receive documentation. To opt out of paperless service, please contact our customer service team by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Payment Terms – All payments are payable in advance, before the service is delivered, unless specific terms and conditions specify otherwise. To ensure uninterrupted service, our customers on services contract longer than 1 month are automatically enrolled in GVA autopay program. This program allows GVA to charge a credit card for renewal of the service. The renewal charge is the current published rate for service. One month before the payment card is charged, GVA sends a reminder of the upcoming renewal. Recipients of the reminder can contact GVA to provide an alternative payment method. If GVA does not hear from the recipient before the renewal date, the service subscription is auto-renewed for one year and the payment card is charged. In the event that GVA does not receive payment, they reserve the right to terminate the service, which may cause a business to fall out of good standing with the state. In all situations, GVA liability is limited only to amounts paid to GVA. If you are not satisfied with our service please contact our customer service department.
Cancellation & Refund – Service fees for services not rendered will be refunded subject to terms and conditions mentioned in this document. If you wish to cancel any paid service or services, you should notify email@example.com or the agent or professional with whom you made the service order, in writing. Cancellation fees charge or refunds of pro-rata fees will be as per terms set hereunder. GVA shall remain within its rights to forfeit the non-refundable deposit amount paid to confirm the service, setup fees, and all one time charges, to recover the scale of cancellation charges set by our business associates or partners. Once a consultation meeting has started or advice is rendered, completed or prepared forms shared with you, this is considered partial or complete delivery of service or sharing of intellectual property, and refunds will not be processed under any circumstances. GVA will take very step to get the work completed, as defined in the scope document sent via an emailed or mailed work order, estimate, proposal, NDA, contract or agreement, made in writing. Refunds will not be issued for amounts less than $25.00. If for some reason, you wish to cancel by quoting an arbitrary or vague reason, and the request is from your side, then a refund processing fee of $ 100 will apply for every refund requested. If you cancel the service or seek a refund after an unreasonable time has elapsed from the date of payment, refunds will not be processed under any circumstance. Unreasonable time is defined as three times the service completion time in GVA's service level agreement or SLA table. GVA will make every effort to render service as per scope of work agreed in writing. If the total service charge exceeds the full amount of the refund, the purchaser will not receive a refund, but will not be required to pay GVA any additional fees. A refund request will automatically forfeit all rights to receive any and all services, credits or bonuses that would have otherwise been owed by GVA. To prevent abuse of the refund policy, a refund of fee may only be requested once in customer's history with GVA.
Returned Checks - A $50 fee will be added to all checks returned to GVA due to non-sufficient funds or closed accounts. In addition, a bank service fee will be charged on these checks.
