Overview Of Service
With Simply, LLC: Simply Top 20 Directories/Listings, we manage and direct digital marketing efforts related to the “Top20” Listings Tool. Example: Top20listings.com. We control where and when the ads for the directory/listings appear while maintaining budget and boosting the Directory’s campaign performance. Your Invoice/Receipt and our Services Agreement will not detail all the features or tactics that Simply, LLC (“Simply”) will employ. Your Simply Account Manager will be available to discuss these with you.
1) Service and Payment Commitment
a) Fees & Costs of Services
i) One-time Directory/Listings Setup Fee - [See Invoice/Receipt]
ii) Recurring Monthly Service Fee - [See Invoice/Receipt]
b) Month-to-Month Agreement - Your Invoice will set forth which service you have selected. When you select this service, you also agree that the Service automatically renews each month unless terminated.
c) Automatically Recurring Monthly Billing – Your monthly bill date is established the date your service goes “live”. The first month’s service fee is collected upfront with the setup fee, when your service goes “live”, the billing is also activated and 30 days from that date and thereafter you will be billed until your account is terminated.
i) Failure to Pay: Upon failure of automatic billing, Simply will reprocess payment the following business day. If Simply is unable to secure payment, we will make at least three (3) attempts to contact you. Upon the 5th business day following failed billing, Simply will pause the directory/listing until payment can be obtained. Following 30 days of non-payment, Simply will cancel the service.

i) By You: You may cancel your account by providing an email to email@example.com and you will receive a follow-up phone call for verbal confirmation to complete your cancellation. Notice must be received by Simply, at least 7 days prior to your next bill date. No Refunds are issued in event of cancellation of service. Funds are only collected for the next full month’s service, and cancellation requests will result in services to be carried out through end of current months’ term.
ii) By Simply, LLC: Simply reserves the right to terminate providing Service for any reason. In the event of a termination Simply will provide you with as much notice as is reasonably possible under the circumstances of such termination; however, termination related to functionality may occur immediately and without any notice.
e) Fee Changes – Simply will give you at least 30 days, advance notice of any changes in ongoing fees for Service that we provide to you on a month-to-month basis.
