miDASH accepts certain credit cards and will automatically charge your selected credit card for all applicable fees on a monthly or yearly basis, depending on which Plan you select, until you or we cancel your Plan. The Plan fee will be billed when you first choose to open a Plan and each month or year (depending on which Plan you select) thereafter unless and until you cancel your membership. Plan charges are fully earned upon payment and there are no refunds or credits for partially used months or years, as applicable. If any fee is not paid in a timely manner, or miDASH is unable to process your transaction using the credit card information provided, miDASH reserves the right to revoke access to your miDASH Plan. Provincial taxation will be applied appropriately.

All information that you provide in connection with a monetary transaction through the Service must be accurate, complete, and current. You agree to pay all charges incurred by users of your credit card, debit card, or other payment method used in connection with a purchase or transaction or other monetary transaction through the Service at the prices in effect when such charges are incurred. You will pay any applicable taxes, if any, relating to any monetary transactions.

If you want to use a different credit card or if there is a change in your credit card validity or expiration date, you may edit your information by accessing your Plan setting page. If your credit card reaches its expiration date, your continued use of the miDASH constitutes your authorization for us to continue billing that credit card and you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. It is your responsibility to keep your contact information and payment information current and updated.

2. Cancelling Your Plan

Your miDASH Plan will continue in effect until you cancel your Plan, or we terminate it. You must cancel your Plan before it renews each month or year (depending on which Plan you select) in order to avoid billing of the next month’s/year’s fees associated with your credit card. miDASH will bill the monthly/yearly fees associated with your Plan plus any applicable tax to the credit card you provide to us during registration (or to a different credit card if you change your account information).

AIHS may modify these Terms of Use from time to time. If you do not agree to any modifications, you should stop your use of miDASH. Your continued use of miDASH now, or following the posting of notice of any changes in these Terms of Use, will constitute a binding acceptance by you of these Terms of Use, and any subsequent modifications.

Governing Law and Disputes

These Terms of Use are governed by the laws of the Province of British Columbia, and the federal laws of Canada applicable therein, without regard to conflict of laws principles.

All disputes arising out of or in connection with miDASH or these Terms of Use, or in respect of any defined legal relationship associated therewith or derived there from, will be referred to and finally resolved by arbitration under the rules of the British Columbia International Commercial Arbitration Centre. The appointing authority will be the British Columbia International Commercial Arbitration Centre. The case will be administered by the British Columbia International Commercial Arbitration Centre in accordance with its rules. The place of arbitration will be Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The language of the arbitration will be English.

Some jurisdictions do not allow a consumer contract to provide for the selection of a governing law other than the law of the residence of the consumer, or to provide for the arbitration of disputes if the reference to arbitration would prevent the consumer from exercising rights provided under consumer legislation, so one or more of the above provisions may not apply to you.

Upon receipt of a copy of a death certificate, your account may be terminated and all contents therein permanently deleted. AIHS has the right to assign any or all of its rights and duties under these Terms of Use to any third party. At the election of AIHS, if AIHS' obligations hereunder are assumed by a third party, AIHS will be relieved of any and all future liability under these Terms of Use.
