2.2 Subscriptions. Unless otherwise specified in the applicable Order Form or the Statement of Work, (i) Services are purchased as Subscriptions; (ii) additional Subscriptions may be added during the Subscription Term at the same pricing as that for the pre-existing Subscriptions, prorated for the remainder of the Term in effect at the time the additional Services are added; and (iii) the added Subscriptions shall terminate on the same date as the pre-existing Subscriptions. Professional Services may be purchased by Customer at Influitive’s then current rates and shall be detailed in the corresponding Statement of Work.
2.3 Influitive Responsibilities. Influitive shall: (i) provide to Customer basic support for the Services at no additional charge, and/or upgraded support, if purchased, provided that the terms of such upgraded support are described in the Order Form; and (ii) make the Services available in accordance with Influitive’s policies.

Any payment not received from Customer by the due date shall accrue (except with respect to charges then under reasonable and good faith dispute), at the lower of 1.5% or the maximum rate permitted by law of the outstanding balance per month from the date such payment is due until the date paid. If any Customer account is 30 days or more overdue (except with respect to charges then under reasonable and good faith dispute), in addition to any other rights and remedies (including the termination rights set forth in this Agreement), Influitive reserves the right to suspend the Services without liability to Influitive, until such account is paid in full.
