  • We do our best to find the best partner for your stuff and we will choose based on reusability, sustainability, and environmentalism. We also favor local partners.
  • To keep subscription fees as low as possible, we don't come unless you tell us to. If you want us to pick up stuff up, please opt-in via text or email. Otherwise, we won't come!
  • If you opt-in but don't leave anything for us, we won't be able to come until your next pickup window.
  • If you have stuff for us, please leave it in the bin unless we discuss beforehand. We don't want to take anything by accident!
  • Once we pick something up, we can't get it back to you so make sure you're ready to let it go.
  • If you decide to cancel, we'll miss you! And we ask that you return your bins and bags so we can reuse them for another customer.
  • If we suspend or cancel service for any reason, we will provide the option to get a partial refund.

SECTION 22 - SUBSCRIPTION FEES AND PAYMENT TERMS

Service Subscription Fees

You will be responsible for payment of the applicable fees for any Services (each, a “Service Subscription Fee”) at the time you create your Account and select your monthly or annual package, as applicable (each, a “Service Commencement Date”). All fees for the Tasks and Services are non-refundable. No contract will exist between you and the Company for the Services until the Company accepts your order by a confirmatory email, text message, via the App, or other appropriate means of communication.

Payment

You agree to pay all fees or charges to your Account in accordance with the fees, charges, and billing terms in effect at the time a fee or charge is due and payable. We partner with Stripe to manage payments; by using our Service you agree to provide Stripe with a valid credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or any other issuer accepted by us) (“Payment Provider”) and also agree to Stripe's [Terms of Service] (https://stripe.com/us/terms). Your Payment Provider agreement governs your use of the designated credit card, and you must refer to that agreement and not to the Terms to determine your rights and liabilities. By providing Stripe with your credit card number and associated payment information, you agree that the Company is authorized to immediately invoice your Account for all fees and charges due and payable to the Company hereunder and that no additional notice or consent is required. You agree to immediately update your payment details in Stripe is there is any change in your billing address or the credit card used for payment hereunder. The Company reserves the right at any time to change its prices and billing methods, either immediately upon posting on the Company Properties or by email delivery to you.

Automatic Renewal

Your subscription will continue indefinitely until terminated in accordance with the Terms.

AFTER YOUR INITIAL SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD, AND AGAIN AFTER ANY SUBSEQUENT SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD, YOUR SUBSCRIPTION WILL AUTOMATICALLY COMMENCE ON THE FIRST DAY FOLLOWING THE END OF SUCH PERIOD (EACH A “RENEWAL COMMENCEMENT DATE”) AND CONTINUE MONTH TO MONTH, AT THE COMPANY’S THEN-CURRENT PRICE FOR SUCH SUBSCRIPTION.

YOU AGREE THAT YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE SUBJECT TO THIS AUTOMATIC RENEWAL FEATURE UNLESS YOU CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION AT ANY TIME PRIOR TO THE RENEWAL COMMENCEMENT DATE BY CONTACTING US VIA EMAIL (info@ridwell.com).

If you cancel your subscription, you may use your subscription until the end of your then-current subscription term; your subscription will not be renewed after your then-current term expires. However, you will not be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then-current subscription period.

By subscribing, you authorize the Company to charge your Payment Provider now, and again at the beginning of any subsequent subscription period. Upon renewal of your subscription, if the Company does not receive payment from your Payment Provider, (i) you agree to pay all amounts due on your Account upon demand, and/or (ii) you agree that the Company may either terminate or suspend your subscription and continue to attempt to charge your Payment Provider until payment is received (upon receipt of payment, your Account will be activated and for purposes of automatic renewal, your new subscription commitment period will begin as of the day payment was received).

Taxes

The Company’s fees are net of any applicable Sales Tax. If any Services, or payments for any Services, under the Terms are subject to Sales Tax in any jurisdiction and you have not remitted the applicable Sales Tax to the Company, you will be responsible for the payment of such Sales Tax and any related penalties or interest to the relevant tax authority, and you will indemnify the Company for any liability or expense we may incur in connection with such Sales Taxes. Upon our request, you will provide us with official receipts issued by the appropriate taxing authority, or other such evidence that you have paid all applicable taxes. For purposes of this section, “Sales Tax” shall mean any sales or use tax, and any other tax measured by sales proceeds, that the Company is permitted to pass to its customers, that is the functional equivalent of a sales tax where the applicable taxing jurisdiction does not otherwise impose a sales or use tax.

Free Trials and Other Promotions

Any free trial or other promotion that provides user access to the Services must be used within the specified time of the trial. At the end of the trial period, your use of that Service will expire and any further use of the Service is prohibited unless you pay the applicable subscription fee. If you are inadvertently charged for a subscription, please contact the Company to have the charges reversed.

Communications

The Company reserves the right to contact you from time to time for feedback about the Services, including feedback and reviews regarding the Tasks performed by Ridwell, and for service and support related issues. We reserve the right to contact you through email and text messages, or notices posted on the Website or in your Account. Notices will be deemed effective at the time they are sent by the Company or as of the date they are posted, regardless of whether you actually read any such notices.
