The fees for any premium, upgraded, or paid accounts (“Upgraded Account(s)”) will be billed from the date you elect, or convert to, a Upgraded Account and on each renewal thereafter unless and until you cancel your account. SignNow will automatically bill you by credit card or otherwise if agreed upon each period on the anniversary of the commencement of your Upgraded Account. You acknowledge that the amount billed in any given period may vary for reasons that include, differing amounts due to promotional offers, differing amounts due to changes in your account, or changes in the amount of applicable sales tax, and you authorize us to charge you for such varying amounts. All fees and charges are noncancelable and nonrefundable and no credits will be given for partially used periods, unless otherwise agreed to.
If any fee is not paid in a timely manner, or SignNow is unable to process your transaction using the information provided, SignNow reserves the right to revoke access to your SignNow account. SignNow reserves the right to use our discretion to delete some or all of Your data in order to prevent incurring continued costs after 30 days of delinquency.
Should you elect to increase to a larger Upgraded Account, the commencement date for your next renewal period will be reset and you will be billed for the first month or year of the upgraded level of service on a pro-rata basis.
SignNow may change the fees and charges in effect, or add new fees and charges from time to time, but we will give you advance notice of these changes by email or on the website. If you want to use a different payment method, you may edit your information by accessing your “Account” page or contacting a support representative. It is your responsibility to keep your contact information and payment information current and updated.
Your SignNow Upgraded Account will continue in effect unless and until you cancel your Upgraded Account or we terminate it. You must cancel your Upgraded Account before it renews each month or year in order to avoid billing of the next month’s or year’s fees to your credit card. SignNow will bill the monthly or yearly fees associated with your Upgraded Account plus any applicable tax to the credit card you provide to us.
You may cancel your SignNow Upgraded Account at any time, and cancellation will be effective immediately. If you wish to cancel your Upgraded Account you may do so via your “Account” page or talking to a representative. Should you elect to cancel your Upgraded Account, please note that you will not be issued a refund for the most recently (or any previously) charged monthly or annual fees.
By signing up for a SignNow Upgraded Account and providing SignNow with your payment account information, you hereby agree to these payment terms and conditions.
This Agreement is effective upon any use and remains in effect until your account is terminated. Terms that by their nature extend beyond termination shall survive termination of this Agreement.
Your right to use SignNow automatically terminates if you fail to comply with these Terms. SignNow reserves the right to refuse or discontinue participation to any user at any time at its sole discretion. You agree that, upon such termination, you will discontinue all use of the Products and that your access rights will immediately terminate.

“Personal Information” is information that can be used to uniquely identify or contact a person. Your Personal Information is considered confidential and private to you.
You may be asked to provide your Personal Information when you create a SignNow account or anytime you are in contact with us.
Here are some examples of Personal Information we collect and how we may use it.
We collect and store the files you use within SignNow, including files you upload, download, access, send, share, or email. We may associate all or part of any file you use with SignNow with part or all of other files used with SignNow by you or others for the purpose of eliminating unnecessary duplicate storage.
We access your uploaded file information (file extensions, sizes, thumbnails, modified dates, etc.) for the purpose of providing system maintenance, management, and technical support.
We may process any information we collect in the country where it was collected as well as other countries.
To collect information, we use various technologies, such as “cookies”, pixel tags and web beacons, on our website, in SignNow, email messages, and advertisements. These technologies help improve the user experience – for example by keeping a user logged in and remembering their username or other information between sessions.
At times we may make certain Personal Information available to strategic partners and service providers that work with us to provide our services, or that help us market SignNow. For example, we use third parties to process credit card information for orders in accordance with PCI compliance security guidelines.
It may be necessary − by law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence − for us to disclose your Personal Information, Non Personal Information, and Private Data Files. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate.
We may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to ensure compliance with our service terms, or protect our operations or other users.
In the event of a reorganization, merger, sale or change of ownership we may transfer any and all information, including Personal Information, we collect to the new owner.
Our websites may contain links to other sites that are not under our control. These websites have their own policies regarding privacy. You should review those policies when visiting third party websites. We are not responsible for linked websites, and we provide these links solely for the convenience and information of our users.
It is your responsibility to keep your SignNow password private and secure. We strongly recommend against sharing your login and password with others.
We take industry standard precautions through administrative, technical and physical measures to protect your Personal Information, Non-Personal Information and Private Data Files against loss, theft, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.
We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all web pages that collect any Personal Information. Using an SSL-enabled browser such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari or Internet Explorer is required when your Personal Information is transmitted over the Internet.
When you use some features of SignNow, such as sending files, sharing folders or posting comments, the Personal Information, Non Personal Information, and Private Data Files you share is visible to other users and can be read, collected, or used by them. You are responsible for the information you disclose in this way. For example, if you list your name and email address in a forum posting, that information is public.
We take reasonable steps to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems but cannot guarantee these security measures will prevent third-parties from obtaining Personal Information, Non Personal Information and Private Data Files by illegal actions or attacks. Should such an attack occur, we will notify you in accordance with local law and we will supply the appropriate authorities with available information on the third party in the event the attack comes under prosecution.
We reserve the right to revise, amend, or modify this policy and our other policies and agreements at any time and in any manner.

You understand and accept that the same legal rights and obligations occur with any resulting electronic signature through the SignNow system as traditional physical ink signature. You agree that you have the option to use traditional physical ink signature, and you choose to forgo that option. You represent that any party to a document signed using SignNow agrees to the use of electronic signatures completed using SignNow. You are satisfied that the SignNow process completes and binds documents in such a way that any change is detectable and that the signature is verifiable.

From time to time, parties to this agreement may be required by law to provide to you certain written notices or disclosures. Described below are the terms and conditions for providing to you such notices and disclosures. Please read the information below carefully and thoroughly, and only proceed with using SignNow if you agree to these terms and conditions.
If a party is requesting an eSignature from you, you may request from them a paper copy of any record made available electronically to you. For such copies, as long as you are an authorized user of the SignNow system, you will have the ability to download and print any documents we send to you through your SignNow user account. You may request delivery of paper copies from the party by contacting them directly.
You may decide at any time to receive notices and disclosures in paper format from other parties by notifying the other party by phone, mail, or electronic means.
If you elect to receive required notices and disclosures only in paper format, it will slow the speed at which parties can complete certain steps in transactions with you and delivering services to you because we will need first to send the required notices or disclosures to you in paper format, and then wait until we receive back from you your acknowledgment of your receipt of such paper notices or disclosures.
Unless you tell the party otherwise, parties are able to provide electronically through your SignNow account or other electronic means all required notices, disclosures, authorizations, acknowledgements, and other documents that are required to be provided or made available to you during the course of the parties relationship. You can receive all the disclosures and notices electronically or in paper format through the paper mail delivery system, by providing notice to the other party. If you do not agree with this process, please let the party know and discontinue your use of SignNow.
You can use any means available to contact the party outside of SignNow. If your only contact with the party is through SignNow, then you can reply to transactional emails sent from SignNow to contact the other party in order to let them know of your changes as to how to contact you electronically, to request paper copies of certain information from them, and to withdraw your prior consent to receive notices and disclosures electronically.
