Fees for renewal periods after the Initial Term shall be due and owing immediately upon the first day of such renewal period. BCN may impose a debt service charge equal to one and one-half percent (1.5%) of the overdue balance for each month or fraction thereof the overdue amount remains unpaid. In addition, in the event that any amount due BCN remains unpaid on the date when services expire, we may immediately terminate this agreement, and/or withhold or suspend services.

If you signed up for a monthly payment plan, your monthly billing date will be determined based on the day of the month you purchased the products or services. If you signed up for an annual (or longer) payment plan, and you elected the automatic renewal option, BCN will automatically renew your services when they come up for renewal and will take payment in accordance with the designated payment method at BCN's then current rates.

The TOS cannot be superseded by any verbal agreements of BCN employees or customers. Any agreement modification or special changes to this TOS must be in writing and signed by a BCN officer.

The terms of the TOS shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts without regard to the conflict of law provisions thereof. Both parties submit to personal jurisdiction in Massachusetts.
