  1. Payments

Auto billing; Subscription Fees; Free Trial Terms. The MDFU Service is a paid, auto-renewing subscription service. If you purchase a subscription, you are agreeing to automatic (recurring) billing, and agree to pay the charges made to your account in connection therewith. Your Subscription, and monthly and/or quarterly billing of your account, will continue indefinitely until cancelled by you.

Your MDFU membership begins when you have completed the sign-up process (i.e., when we collect your personal and payment information). You will begin to be billed automatically each quarter (about every 90 days) until you cancel. Once we begin to bill you, cancellations take effect starting at the end of your current billing period, meaning there are no partial month refunds or credits.

The pricing of our Services may vary periodically. We cannot guarantee that the price of your Subscription is the lowest available, or historically lowest or best, price. You will be charged in accordance with the billing terms you agreed to at the time you signed up.

HOW TO CANCEL

If you do not wish for your account to renew automatically, or if you want to change or terminate your subscription, first log into your account, and then click on the following link, or type in the following address into your web browser while you are still logged in: https://gomdfu.com/cancel-subscription. You can also cancel under “Account Settings” which appears on the lower left hand side of the page whenever you are logged in. Your cancellation will take effect starting at the end of your current billing period.

From the Account Settings page, simply follow these few steps:

  • Click on the “Manage Subscription” button
  • Scroll down to the “View your options” button in the lower left section of the page
  • Enter your reason for cancelling and hit “Continue” on the next two screens
  • Confirm your cancellation by selecting the “Confirm cancellation” option.
  • A “Cancel my subscription” button will then appear. Select it.
  • Click “Yes” on the final confirmation pop-up.

if you have a monthly subscription that began on the first of the month but cancel mid-month, your cancellation will take effect as of the beginning of the following quarter. Sorry– there are no refunds on MDFU subscriptions for billing periods that have already lapsed.

Service Add-Ons– Auto Billing; Training; Subscription Fees; Free Trial; and Cancellation

We refer to any additional, paid subscription Service we offer beyond a standard Membership as an “Add-On Service.” For example, our personalized Training service, or any other Service we may offer to you which provides access to special or additional Content beyond your standard Membership, is an Add-On Service.

Each Add-On Service is a separate subscription service and is subject to an additional monthly fee that automatically renews just like your regular Membership. Before agreeing to an Add-On Service, you will be prompted with i) the type of Service being offered (e.g. Training); and ii) the monthly, recurring cost for such Add-On Service. Note: if You purchase an Add-On Service, You are agreeing to an additional monthly automatic (recurring) billing subscription, and agree to pay the charges made to your account in connection therewith, as disclosed at the time You accept the Add-On Service. Your Add-On Service subscription, just like Your standard Membership subscription, will continue indefinitely until cancelled by You.

Add-On Services are billed on the same day as Your regular Membership, in one combined payment. You can cancel at any time by following the instructions above (“How to Cancel”). Note that Your Add-On Service subscription is separate from your regular Membership, although we will combine the charges each month when we bill You. You can cancel one or both at any time, but canceling your regular Membership will automatically cancel your Add-On Service.

Your Add-On Service Free Trial period lasts only as long as your original (initial) Free Trial offer is in effect, which means that if you do not sign up for the Add-On Service on the same day you initially signed up for your 30-day Free Trial membership, your Add-On free trial will only remain in effect for the remainder of your initial Free Trial period. So, for example, if you signed up for your Free Trial membership on the 1st of the month, and signed up for your Add-On Service on the 16th, your free Add-On trial period would only last for approximately two weeks through the 30th of that same month (the same duration as your initial Free Trial membership).

Quarterly and Annual Subscriptions.

In certain circumstances, we will offer Subscriptions for a longer term (for example, 3 months, 6 months or even a year). These longer-term Subscriptions are charged in full upon purchase, and automatically renew for the same duration as the initial Subscription term you selected (for example, if you initially purchased a 3 month Subscription, your Subscription will automatically renew for three months; 6 month subscriptions will automatically renew for six months, and so on). The amount due for the next renewal term will be due and immediately payable in full and charged as of the first day of such renewal term. You can always cancel before your next renewal term by logging into your account, and following the cancellation instructions above (“How to Cancel”).

Paused Subscriptions. In circumstances in which you elect to pause your subscription, your account will automatically reactivate following the time period that you specified at the time of pausing, and we will then automatically start to bill you again. You will be responsible for payment upon reactivation regardless of whether or not you receive a reminder notice regarding the expiration of your paused status. By electing to pause your subscription, you agree and authorize MDFU to bill your account starting at the expiration of your paused account status period.

Authorization. When you sign up for our Service and provide a payment method to MDFU, you are granting your express consent and are expressly authorizing us (and our designated payment processor) to automatically charge you each month for the Service.

If you provide a payment method and our charge results in an overdraft, chargeback or other fee from your bank, you alone are responsible for that fee.

EVEN IF YOU DO NOT USE THE SUBSCRIPTION OR ACCESS THE MDFU APPLICATION, YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY SUBSCRIPTION FEES UNTIL YOU CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION OR IT IS OTHERWISE TERMINATED. To cancel, follow the instructions above (“How to Cancel”).

Changes. MDFU may change, modify, add, remove, suspend, cancel or discontinue any aspect of it subscriptions including the functionality, content, and/or availability of any features of such subscriptions at any time in MDFU’s sole discretion.

MDFU may increase its fees for any subscription effective the first day of a billing renewal by giving you notice of the new fees at least thirty (30) days before you are billed. If you have and do not cancel your subscription, you will be deemed to have accepted the new fees.

  1. Term and Termination; Account Deletion

TERM: This Agreement begins on the date you first use the MDFU Service and continues as long as you have an account with us.

A notification will be located at the top of the screen confirming that you have canceled your account. You can also cancel by going into your Account Settings (located in the header under your profile name), navigating to the “Manage Subscription” tab and scrolling down where you will find the link to cancel.

ACCOUNT DELETION: You may delete your account at any time.

  1. General Provisions

ARBITRATION AND GOVERNING LAW:

The exclusive means of resolving any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement (including any alleged breach thereof), the Service, or the Site shall be BINDING ARBITRATION administered by the American Arbitration Association. The one exception to the exclusivity of arbitration is that you have the right to bring an individual claim against MDFU in a small-claims court of competent jurisdiction. But whether you choose arbitration or small-claims court, you may not under any circumstances commence or maintain against MDFU or its affiliates any class action, class arbitration, or other representative action or proceeding.

By using the Site or the Service in any manner, you agree to the above arbitration agreement. In doing so, YOU GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend any claims between you and MDFU or its affiliates (except for matters that may be taken to small-claims court). YOU ALSO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER CLASS PROCEEDING. Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR, NOT A JUDGE OR JURY. You are entitled to a fair hearing before the arbitrator. The arbitrator can grant any relief that a court can, but you should note that arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.

Any proceeding to enforce this arbitration agreement, including any proceeding to confirm, modify, or vacate an arbitration award, may be commenced in any court of competent jurisdiction. In the event that this arbitration agreement is for any reason held to be unenforceable, any litigation against MDFU (except for small-claims court actions) may be commenced only in the federal or state courts located in Franklin County, Ohio. You hereby irrevocably consent to the jurisdiction of those courts for such purposes and you irrevocably waive any right to a trial by jury.

This Agreement, and any dispute between you and MDFU, shall be governed by the laws of the state of Ohio without regard to principles of conflicts of law, provided that this arbitration agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.

INTERPRETATION; SEVERABILITY; WAIVER; REMEDIES: Headings are for convenience only and shall not be used to construe the terms of this Agreement. If any term of this Agreement is found invalid or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, that term will be severed from this Agreement. No failure or delay by MDFU in exercising any right hereunder will waive any further exercise of that right. MDFU’s rights and remedies hereunder are cumulative and not exclusive.

SUCCESSORS; ASSIGNMENT; NO THIRD PARTY BENEFICIARIES: This Agreement is binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of both parties and their respective successors, heirs, executors, administrators, personal representatives, and permitted assigns. You may not assign this Agreement without MDFU’s prior written consent. No third party shall have any rights hereunder.

NOTICES: You consent to receive all communications including notices, agreements, disclosures, or other information from MDFU electronically. MDFU may provide all such communications by email or by posting them on the MDFU Service. For support-related inquiries, you may send an email to support@gomdfu.com or the following address:

Attention: Legal Department

Nothing herein shall limit MDFU’s right to object to subpoenas, claims, or other demands.

MODIFICATION: This Agreement may not be modified except by a revised Terms of Service posted by MDFU on the MDFU Site or a written amendment signed by an authorized representative of MDFU. A revised Terms of Service will be effective as of the date it is posted on the MDFU Site.
