1. Collbox is a Collection Agency Broker. Collbox acts as a broker to allow Users and Agencies (collectively the “Collbox Members”) who comply with Collbox’s policies to submit and purchase Receivables. Collbox has no control over the quality, safety, morality or legality of any aspect of the items submitted, the truth or accuracy of the submissions. Collbox does not pre-screen Users or the content or information provided by Users. Collbox cannot ensure that Collbox Members will actually complete a transaction. Some Agencies may have additional or other terms, agreements, or polices that govern their availability and use (the “Additional Terms”). As Users will learn the identity of these Agencies upon submitting Receivables, as such, users use of and access to such sites, services applications, and tools are subject to the Additional Terms. If you do not agree to the Additional Terms, you must stop using the Services and delete your Collbox account.

If you are under 18, please do not register for the Services or send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 18 may provide any personal information to Collbox or on the Services. If we learn we have collected personal information from a child under age 18 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 18, please contact us at email@example.com.
- You represent and warrant to Collbox that: (i) if you are an individual you are of legal age to form a binding contract,; (ii) if you are an entity,you have authorization to enter into a binding contract; (iii) all registration information you submit is accurate and truthful; and (iv) you will maintain the accuracy of such information. You also certify that you are legally permitted to use and access the Services and take full responsibility for the selection and use of and access to the Services. This Agreement is void where prohibited by law, and the right to access the Services is revoked in such jurisdictions.
- Collbox may prohibit any user from using the Service in its sole discretion for any reason, and we are not liable for any damage or loss resulting from such prohibition.
- Basic Terms.
- You are responsible for using the Services. By submitting Receivables through the Service, Users, assume full responsibility for the content of the Receivables.
- Agencies using our Service agree to our Fees. We cannot guarantee that the submissions will always be accurate and up to date, and you agree not to hold us responsible for inaccuracies in submissions.
- You may use the Services only if you can form a contract with Collbox and are not barred from receiving services under the laws of the United States or other applicable jurisdiction. If you are accepting these Terms and using the Services for a company, organization, government, or other legal entity, you represent and warrant you are authorized to do so. You may use the Services only in compliance with these Terms and all local, state, national, and international laws, rules and regulations.
- The Services that Collbox provides are always evolving, and the form and nature of the Services that Collbox provides may change from time to time without prior notice to you. Collbox may stop (permanently or temporarily) providing the Services (or any features within the Services) to you or to users and may not be able to provide you with prior notice. We also retain the right to create limits on use and storage at our sole discretion without prior notice to you.
- The Services may include advertisements, which may be targeted to the Content or information on the Services, queries made through the Services, or other information. The types and extent of advertising on the Services are subject to change. In consideration for Collbox granting you access to and use of the Services, you agree that Collbox, third party providers and partners may place such advertising on the Services or in connection with the display of Content or information from the Services whether submitted by you or others.
- Fees and Subscription. The Service is available to Collbox Members through a subscription (the “Subscription”). We offer different levels and types of Subscriptions for Collbox Members. The fees we charge for our Subscriptions are listed on our fees schedule (the “Fees Schedule”). We reserve the right to amend the Fee Schedule upon notice to you, which may be sent by email or posted on the Service. Using the Services following such notification constitutes your acceptance of any new or increased charges.
- Subscription Cycle. The Service begins on the date the Collbox Member signs up for a Subscription and submits payment via a valid payment method. The length of the Subscription may be for one month or one year (the “Subscription Cycle”). The Subscription Cycle dictates the frequency of the billing and renewal of the Subscription. For example, if a Collbox Member selects a monthly Subscription and submits a valid payment method on January 1, Membership will automatically renew on January 31 (see “Payment and Billing” below). Collbox Members must provide us with a current, valid, accepted method of payment (as such may be updated from time to time, “Payment Method”) to use the Services. We automatically bills the Subscription fee to Collbox Memeber’s Payment Method each term until Subscription is cancelled or terminated.
- Payment and Billing. Payments are processed through a third-party payment processor. We do not store any credit card or payment information on our servers.
(a) By signing up for a Subscription, Collbox Member authorizes us to charge a Subscription fee at the then current rate.
(b) When Collbox Member provides a Payment Method, the first Subscription will be billed immediately. Collbox Member’s Subsription will automatically-renew and Collbox Member will be billed every Subscription Cycle (every 30 days for a monthly subscription and every 365 days for an annual Subscription).
- PAYMENTS ON MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTIONS ARE NONREFUNDABLE; HOWEVER, THERE ARE PARTIAL REFUNDS ON ANNUAL SUBSCRIPTIONS. Annual Subscriptions shall be eligible for a 50% refund on the remaining length of the term rounded to the lower of full months remaining. For example, a Collbox Member with an annual Subscription with 4.5 months remaining; would receive back 50% of the annual fees prorated over 4 months.
- Collbox Members may terminate their Subscriptions at any time through the Service or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. Following any termination, Collbox Member’s account shall remain active until the expiration of the Subscription Cycle; however, Users shall not be able to submit Receivable nor shall Agencies be able to make offers for Receivables. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our Collbox Members (“Credits”). The amount and form of such Credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion. The provision of Credits in one instance does not entitle Collbox Member to Credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide Credits in the future, under any circumstance.
(d) Collbox Member may edit Payment Method information through the Service or by emailing email@example.com. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and Collbox Member does not edit Payment Method information or cancel his or her account, Collbox Member remains responsible for any uncollected amounts and authorizes Collbox to continue billing the Payment Method, as it may be updated. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates. Late or insufficient payments shall result in finance charges and collection fees (the “Late Fees”). Furthermore, we reserve the right to deduct Late Fees from any outstanding collections prior to making disbursements to Users.
(f) Subscriptions become delinquent 30 days after a Payment Method fails. Subscriptions become deactivated 60 days after a Payment Method fails; however, we may maintain application data indefinitely. We may assess fees for Collbox Members who desire to access data after deactivation.
