You affirm that you are over the age of 13, as the Pitchly Services are not intended for children under 13.

You are responsible for paying all taxes and government charges, and all reasonable expenses and attorneys fees Pitchly incurs collecting late amounts. To the fullest extent permitted by law, you waive all claims relating to charges unless claimed within 60 days after the charge (this does not affect your credit card issuer rights). Charges are solely based on Pitchly’s measurements of your use of the Pitchly Services, unless otherwise agreed to in writing. To the fullest extent permitted by law, refunds (if any) are at the discretion of Pitchly and only in the form of credit for the Pitchly Services. Nothing in these Terms obligates Pitchly to extend credit to any party. You acknowledge and agree that any credit card and related billing and payment information that you provide to Pitchly may be shared by Pitchly with companies who work on Pitchly’s behalf, such as payment processors and/or credit agencies, solely for the purposes of checking credit, effecting payment to Pitchly and servicing your account. Pitchly may also provide information in response to valid legal process, such as subpoenas, search warrants and court orders, or to establish or exercise its legal rights or defend against legal claims. Pitchly shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of such information by such third parties. Pitchly reserves the right to discontinue the provision of the Pitchly Services to you for any late payments.
