The OneHR name, the OneHR logo, and the product names associated with the Service are trademarks of OneHR or third parties, and no right or license is granted to use them.
Fees and Payment
The Client shall pay all Fees to their account in accordance with the fees, charges, and billing terms in effect at the time a Fee is due and payable, which Fees can be viewed on our Pricing Plan page. The Fees will be based on the current number of active employee records held on the system. Please note, you will not be charged for archived employee records. Fees will be invoiced by OneHR monthly in advance and payments shall be invoiced concurrently monthly in advance. All payment obligations are non-cancellable and all amounts paid are non-refundable. The Client is responsible for paying for all Services ordered for the entire License Term. If the Client wishes to amend the number of employees with access to the Service the Client must make any such amendment through the Administration pages in the Service and any resulting adjustment to the fees shall be reflected in the next billing month. OneHR reserves the right to modify its Fees and to introduce new Fees at any time, upon at least 30 days prior notice to the Client, which notice may be provided by e-mail or though the Administration pages in the Service. All pricing terms are confidential, and the Client agrees not to disclose them to any third party.

Set-up and training services
Set-up and training services may be available on request from OneHR. Their availability and cost will be subject to agreement between the parties.
Billing and Renewal
The monthly charges will be calculated using the Plan fee in effect during the prior month, unless OneHR has given the Client at least 30 days prior written notice of a fee increase, which shall be effective from the month following such notice. Fees for other services will be charged on an as-quoted basis. The Client warrants that it has provided OneHR with complete and accurate billing and contact information in the Order Form. If the contact information the Client has provided is false or fraudulent, OneHR reserves the right to terminate access to the Service in addition to any other legal remedies. OneHR is only available to corporate entities or organisations and all billing will be in £ sterling. If the Client believes their bill is incorrect they must notify OneHR in writing within 60 days of the date of the disputed invoice, following which OneHR shall assess whether any adjustment or credit is due.
Non-Payment and Suspension
In addition to any other rights granted to OneHR herein, OneHR reserves the right to suspend or terminate this Agreement and the Client’s access to the Service if their account falls into arrears. If any sum payable under this Agreement is not paid within 7 days after the due date or any payment is rejected revoked or refused then (without prejudice to the Company’s other rights and remedies) OneHR reserves the right to suspend the provision of any Services being rendered and to delete all Client Data and all other data settings information and records in relation to the OneHR system as set up for the Client and/or to charge interest on such sum on a day to day basis (as well after as before any judgment) from the date or last date for payment thereof to the date of actual payment (both dates inclusive) at the rate of 4 per cent above the base rate of National Westminster Bank plc from time to time in force compounded quarterly. Such interest shall be paid on demand by the Client. If the Client initiates termination of this Agreement, the Client will be obliged to pay the balance due on their account computed in accordance with the Fees and Payment section above. The Client agrees that OneHR may bill for such unpaid Fees. OneHR reserves the right to impose a reconnection fee in the event the Client is suspended and thereafter requests access to the Service.
Termination upon Expiration/by Notice
The contract shall be for the duration of the Initial Contract Period (the “Initial Period”), with no provision for early termination. The contract shall continue automatically after the Initial Period for the same period (the “Renewal Period”) unless terminated by either party giving a minimum of three months’ written notice to expire at the end of the Initial Period and any subsequent Renewal Periods.
OneHR may also terminate this Agreement where OneHR decides to withdraw the Website (whether on a temporary or permanent basis) or decides to no longer permit access to the Website by the Client (by use of passwords or changes of passwords or by any other means). In such cases, where the Client has paid for any Services and has not received all of the Services the Client has paid for, OneHR may either return any amounts the Client has paid or complete performing the Services which remain unperformed.
Termination for Cause
OneHR may terminate this Agreement if the Client commits any material breach of any of the terms of this Agreement and (if such a breach is remediable) fails to remedy that breach within 30 days of being notified of the breach. Without limit to the generality of the foregoing any breach of the Client’s payment obligations or unauthorised use of the OneHR Technology or Service will be deemed a material and irremediable breach of this Agreement.
Following termination for any reason OneHR will terminate the Client’s password, account and use of the Service.
