You agree to pay any and all prices and fees due for Services purchased at this Site at the time you order the Services.  All prices and fees are non-refundable unless otherwise expressly noted, even if your Services are suspended, terminated, or transferred prior to the end of the Services term.  New Global Ventures expressly reserves the right to change or modify its prices and fees at any time, and such changes or modifications shall be posted online at this Site and effective immediately without need for further notice to you.  If you have purchased Services for a period of months or years, changes or modifications in prices and fees shall be effective when the Services in question come up for renewal as further described below. 

Where refunds are issued, New Global Ventures issuance of a refund receipt is confirmation that New Global Ventures has submitted your refund to the Payment Method charged at the time of the original sale.  You acknowledge and agree that the associated payment provider and/or individual issuing bank establish and regulate the time frames for posting your refund.  Refund posting time frames may range from five (5) business days to a full billing cycle.

Except as prohibited in any product-specific agreement, you may pay for Services by providing a valid credit card, an electronic check (from your personal or business checking account, as appropriate), PayPal (as defined below), Alipay (as defined below), or by using New Global Ventures “Good As Gold Prepaid Services” to establish a cash reserve for charge by New Global Ventures (each, a “Payment Method”).  For Services that offer “Express Checkout”, clicking the Express Checkout button will automatically place an order for that Service and charge the primary Payment Method on file for your Account.  Confirmation of that order will be sent to the email address on file for your Account. Your Payment Method on file must be kept valid if you have any active Services in your Account. For New Global Ventures Marketplace buyers, you may use either a valid credit card or Good As Gold Prepaid Services to make purchases.  For New Global Ventures Marketplace buyers, New Global Ventures Marketplace purchases and transactions are governed by the New Global Ventures Marketplace Returns and Refunds Policy in effect on the date of the purchase or transaction in question.

Some New Global Ventures Services offer an automatic renewal option.  While the details of the automatic renewal option vary from Service to Service, generally the Services that offer an automatic renewal option treat it as the default setting.  Therefore, unless you select the manual renewal option, New Global Ventures will automatically renew your Services when they come up for renewal and will take payment from the Payment Method you have on file with New Global Ventures at New Global Ventures then current rates.

If you are being billed on a monthly basis, your monthly billing date will be based on the date of the month you purchased the Services unless that date falls after the 28th of the month, in which case your billing date will be the 28th of each month. 

In an effort to ensure that there is no interruption of Services, New Global Ventures may participate in “recurring billing programs” or “account updater services” supported by your credit card provider (and ultimately dependent on your bank’s participation).  If you are enrolled in an automatic renewal option and we are unable to successfully charge your existing Payment Method, your credit card provider (or your bank) may notify us of updates to your credit card number and/or expiration date, or they may automatically charge your new credit card on our behalf without notification to us.  In accordance with recurring billing program requirements, in the event that we are notified of an update to your credit card number and/or expiration date, New Global Ventures will automatically update your payment profile on your behalf. New Global Ventures makes no guarantees that we will request or receive updated credit card information. You acknowledge and agree that it is your sole responsibility to modify and maintain your Account settings, including but not limited to (i) setting your renewal options and (ii) ensuring your associated Payment Method(s) are current and valid.  Further, you acknowledge and agree that your failure to do so, may result in the interruption or loss of Services, and New Global Ventures shall not be liable to you or any third party regarding the same.  

If for any reason New Global Ventures is unable to charge your Payment Method for the full amount owed for the Services provided, or if New Global Ventures is charged a penalty for any fee it previously charged to your Payment Method, you agree that New Global Ventures may pursue all available lawful remedies in order to obtain payment. If you pay by credit card and if for any reason New Global Ventures is unable to charge your credit card with the full amount owed for the Services provided, or if New Global Ventures is charged back for any fee it previously charged to the credit card you provided, you agree that New Global Ventures may pursue all available lawful remedies in order to obtain payment. You agree that the remedies New Global Ventures may pursue in order to effect payment shall include, but not be limited to, immediate cancellation without notice to you of any domain names or Services registered or renewed on your behalf. New Global Ventures reserves the right to charge you reasonable “administrative fees” or “processing fees” for (i) tasks New Global Ventures may perform outside the normal scope of its Services, (ii) additional time and/or costs New Global Ventures may incur in providing its Services, and/or (iii) your noncompliance with this Agreement (as determined by New Global Ventures in its sole and absolute discretion). Typical scenarios include, but are not limited to, customer service issues that require additional personal time or attention, fees incurred by third-party payment providers such as PayPal, Alipay, and Certegy (as defined below), fees incurred as the result of chargebacks or other payment disputes brought by you, your bank, or a Payment Method processor, and disputes that require accounting or legal services. These administrative fees or processing fees will be billed to the Payment Method you have on file with New Global Ventures.  For New Global Ventures Marketplace buyers, if New Global Ventures has not received payment for a transaction or New Global Ventures has received a chargeback for all or any portion of the transaction, you understand that in addition to any administrative fees or processing fees New Global Ventures may charge for the handling of the chargeback, the New Global Ventures Marketplace seller may also pursue all available lawful remedies in order to (i) collect payment (plus applicable fees) or (ii) obtain the lost merchandise.  New Global Ventures is not responsible for the actions of the New Global Ventures Marketplace sellers.

While all transactions are processed in U.S. dollars, New Global Ventures may provide an estimated conversion price to currencies other than U.S. dollars. You acknowledge and agree that the pricing displayed during the checkout process is an estimated conversion price at the time of purchase.  Due to time differences between (i) the time you complete the checkout process, (ii) the time the transaction is processed, and (iii) the time the transaction posts to your bank statement, the conversion rates may fluctuate, and New Global Ventures makes no representations or warranties that the estimated conversion price will be the same as, or reflective of, either (a) the amount processed or (b) the amount posted to your bank statement, and you agree to waive any and all claims based upon such discrepancies (including any and all claims for a refund based on the foregoing).  In addition, you acknowledge and agree that you may be charged exchange rate conversion fees, Value Added Tax (“VAT”), Goods and Services Tax (“GST”), or other localized fees and/or taxes, based on your bank and/or the country indicated in your billing address section.

(A) GOOD AS GOLD PREPAID SERVICES

Service Details

By using Good As Gold Prepaid Services, you may transfer funds to New Global Ventures in order to fund your Good As Gold Prepaid Services account (“Good As Gold Account”).  You may then use your Good As Gold Account to purchase any of New Global Ventures Services.  You may fund your Good As Gold Account by providing (i) a paper check (from your personal or business checking account, as appropriate), (ii) a money order, or (iii) a wire transfer.  All payments must be for the full amount required at purchase.  All paper checks and money orders may be delayed up to ten (10) business days until the money is credited, which may delay your use of the Services, and any paper check or money order that does not clear will result in a $25.00 processing fee by New Global Ventures, which may be debited from your Good As Gold Account.  The $25.00 processing fee is in addition to any fee(s) your bank may charge you.  

You can verify the remaining funds in your Good As Gold Account at any time by logging into “Manage Your Account” or through the shopping cart on the New Global Ventures website. Should you decide to terminate your Good As Gold Account and seek a refund, your refund will be made by check net of any discounts, including, but not limited to, reduced or waived wire transfer fees and/or the Cash Discount (as defined below).

You acknowledge that funds transferred to your Good As Gold Account will be held by New Global Ventures and will not accrue or pay interest for your benefit. To the extent any interest may accrue, you understand and agree that New Global Ventures shall be entitled to receive and keep any such amounts to cover costs associated with Good As Gold Prepaid Services.

You acknowledge that all transactions using Good As Gold Prepaid Services will be conducted in U.S. dollars and that it is your responsibility to arrange for foreign currency translations prior to funding your Good As Gold Account. Wire transfers received by New Global Ventures in foreign currencies will be returned and you will be responsible for the cost of returning such funds. Your Good As Gold Account must be funded on an initial basis with no less than $100.00 paid in U.S. funds. You agree that you will be responsible for all wire transfer fees, both incoming and outgoing, associated with your Good As Gold Account. Any non-U.S. wire transfers may be subject to fees by your bank, intermediary banks, or New Global Ventures bank, which may reduce the amount of the money received by New Global Ventures bank and subsequently funded into your Good As Gold Account. Customers funding a Good As Gold Account with a wire of $1,000.00 or more shall not be subject to a $20.00 wire transfer processing fee from New Global Ventures. You hereby expressly give New Global Ventures permission to reduce your Good As Gold Account by the amount of wire transfer fees New Global Ventures incurs in order to receive your funds.  All fees are subject to change at any time, and such changes shall be posted online at this Site and effective immediately without need for further notice to you. 

Good As Gold Accounts will receive a two percent (2%) discount on purchases (the “Cash Discount”) except for items purchased on New Global Ventures Marketplace .  The Cash Discount will be reflected in your Good As Gold Account balance. Thus, purchases will reduce your Good As Gold Account balance by ninety-eight percent (98%) of the total purchase price of each transaction. For example, if your Good As Gold Account is funded with an initial amount of $100.00 and you make a $10.00 purchase, your Good As Gold Account will be reduced by only $9.80. New Global Ventures reserves the right to discontinue or change the Cash Discount at any time, without notice.

Your Use of Good As Gold Prepaid Services

Use of funds in your Good As Gold Account can only be made through the New Global Ventures purchase process at New Global Ventures website. Purchases may not be made unless there are sufficient, available funds in your Good As Gold Account at the time of purchase to cover the entire purchase amount, including any related fees as set forth herein or in other relevant agreements.

Additional funds may be added to your Good As Gold Account at any time. The minimum increment for funds transfers is $100.00.

You will be able to access your Good As Gold Account activity and records from the “Manage Your Account” link on New Global Ventures’s website. Your Good As Gold Account will show purchases and the amount of funds remaining in your Good As Gold Account.
