If you’re visiting the site or using the TouchBase services personally, you’re agreeing to these terms on behalf of yourself, your successors, and your assigns. If you’re visiting the site or using the TouchBase services on behalf of a company or entity, you’re representing and warranting that you are authorized to act on behalf of and bind the company or entity you’re acting on behalf of to these Terms and any further agreement with us.

Bank and Credit Card Fees
Some banks and credit cards impose fees for international transactions. If you are purchasing Services from outside of the United States on a US credit card, your bank may convert the payment amount to your local currency and charge you a conversion fee. This means the amount listed on your credit or bank card statement may be in your local currency and therefore a different figure than the figure shown on the billing summary page for services purchased on the Website. In addition, a foreign transaction fee may be assessed if the bank that issued your credit card is located outside of the United States. The currency exchange rate and foreign transaction fee is determined solely by your bank on the day that they process the transaction. If you have any questions about these fees or the exchange rate applied to your purchase, please contact your bank.
