|BHE-Bill Terms and Conditions for Purchases of Goods and Services|
These Terms and Conditions govern any transaction involving a person or other legal entity ("Purchaser") who purchases goods or subscribes to services offered by one or more Internet site(s) ("Site") through BHE-Bill ("The Service"). Purchaser's use of The Service affords Purchaser instant confirmation of Purchaser's access ("Membership") to the Internet site or sites ("Site") for the original number of days ("Initial Term") selected by Purchaser, as well as the ability to purchase certain goods and/or services offered by the Site. Granting of Membership is contingent on approval of the charge to Subscriber's credit card for the initial payment ("Initial Fee"). All other purchases are contingent on receipt of funds by BHE-Bill for the full purchase price, including any applicable shipping charges, handling fees, and taxes.
The Service is a reseller who has been authorized to sell Membership and/or goods and/or services offered by, the Site. The Service has no other relationship to the Site or to any services, products, or content offered through or by the Site. We do not produce any of the content or material found on the Site, or on any website other than bhebill.com or that of our parent company, b-h-e.com, and are neither primary nor secondary producers of any such content or material within the meaning of 18 U.S.C. 2257. For all purposes, the content and material on the Site is the sole responsibility of the owner or proprietor of that Site. The Service has no control over and is in no way responsible for the quality, nature, details, or suitability for any particular purpose of any of the content or goods, services, or other products offered through or by the Site.
By using the Service, Purchaser agrees to be bound by these BHE-Bill Purchaser Terms and Conditions ("Agreement"). In addition, Purchaser hereby fully agrees to abide by and be held to any Terms and Conditions related to the Site for which Purchaser is purchasing a Membership. These Terms and Conditions are subject to change by BHE-Bill at any time and without notice. You may view the most current copy of the Agreement at http://bhebill.com/memberterms.html.
Applicability of this Agreement to Both Goods and Services
These Terms and Conditions apply to both Memberships, or other electronic services, and physical goods purchased through the Service. Purchaser hereby agrees to be held to these Terms and Conditions for any and all goods and services ordered, purchased, or otherwise obtained by Purchaser through use of the Site.
Automatic Rebilling for Membership
The Initial Fee is due and payable in advance for the Initial Term selected. At the end of the Initial Term, if Purchaser has selected a Membership that automatically renews, Purchaser's credit card will be billed according to the Membership rate at the beginning of the Initial Term ("Renewal Fee") for the standard membership term associated with the service selected by Purchaser ("Renewal Term"). Purchaser's credit card will be billed at the end of each subsequent Renewal Term for the amount of the Renewal Fee.
Cancellation and Maintenance of Membership
BHE-Bill reserves the right to terminate Membership at any time and without notice to Purchaser.
Where BHE-Bill elects to terminate Membership ("Termination") at the end of the Initial Term or any subsequent Renewal Term, Purchaser's credit card will be billed only for Membership prior to termination.
Where Termination by BHE-Bill occurs prior to the end of the Initial Term or any subsequent Renewal Term, and where such Termination in no way results from the fault of Purchaser, BHE-Bill will issue a credit to Purchaser's credit card in an amount equal to the number of days remaining in the Initial Term or Renewal Term following the date of Termination, divided by the total number of days in such Term, times the Fee charged for that Term.
However, should Termination by BHE-Bill come as a result of Purchaser's failure to adhere to any provision(s) of these Terms and Conditions or to any provision(s) of the Terms and Conditions related to the Site to which the Membership applies, or due to Purchaser's fraudulent or otherwise illegal activities, BHE-Bill will not be obligated to provide refund, credit, or compensation of any kind to Purchaser. Termination by BHE-Bill shall in no way limit BHE-Bill's right to seek any other remedy or damages to which BHE-Bill may be entitled by virtue of Purchaser's failure to adhere to any provision or provisions of these Terms and Conditions or to any provision or provisions of the Terms and Conditions related to the Site to which the Membership applies, or resulting from Purchaser's fraudulent or otherwise illegal acitivites.
Where Purchaser requests that BHE-Bill cancel Purchaser's Membership, such cancellation is effective as of the end of the Term for which the last Fee has been received by BHE-Bill. No refunds will be made for the period from the receipt of the request for termination to the expiration of the Term.
Site Access and Use
Purchaser is responsible for providing all personal computer and communications equipment necessary to gain access to The Service and Site. Access to and use of Site is through a combination of a username and a password which are provided to Purchaser at the time Membership is established. Purchaser must keep his username and password strictly confidential, and The Service is not responsible for any harm that may result to Purchaser due to his failure to do so.
Notice Required from Purchaser
Purchaser must promptly inform BHE-Bill if any of the following occurs:
If the credit card or debit card provided by Purchaser to BHE-Bill has expired during an attempt to renew Purchaser's Membership, Purchaser authorizes BHE-Bill to revise the expiration date and proceed with billing using the same credit or debit card account.
Unauthorized access to The Service is a breach of this Agreement and a theft of services.
Purchaser Contact with BHE-Bill

However, in order to protect the security of our customers, BHE-Bill will only provide lost username and/or password information if Purchaser has furnished a valid e-mail address and the person receiving e-mail at such address can respond to the challenge phrase entered by Purchaser upon initiation of Membership. The Service is not responsible for interception of username and/or password information sent by BHE-Bill compliance with the above process, including but not limited to where Purchaser allows others to access the e-mail account provided to BHE-Bill.
