5. PURCHASES AND PAYMENTS
You will be responsible for payment of the applicable fees for any Services. 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.
You may make a range of purchases through our website and App, including Jarvis’ weekly subscription service (Subscription), and other goods and services ordered as part of that subscription (Weekly order), for example the cost of a third party cleaner, groceries, laundry fees and other cost of goods.
Your weekly order carries through to the following week unless otherwise changed. Although we endeavour to make reasonable efforts to confirm your weekly order, including through notifications and reminders, you must pay for any goods and services listed in your account at the time of the weekly lockout on our App (2:00pm the day before we visit your home, or any other time otherwise specified in the App). The weekly order is charged on a weekly basis, and is payable the moment Jarvis incurs the cost of the relevant goods or services.
Your subscription will continue indefinitely until terminated. 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 for an additional equivalent period, 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. The subscription cost is payable each week following our visit to your home, and is charged on a weekly basis.
Jarvis acts as an agent in executing third party goods and services purchases. All services and products purchased through Jarvis are non-refundable. You authorise your Jarvis to make purchases on your behalf, including the discretion to select replacement groceries if your exact requested item is not available.
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 (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. You additionally agree to pay our 3.5% fee on all goods and services purchased on your behalf; this fee is to cover the miscellaneous payment processing fees which we are required to pay our vendors.
