2. Changes to these Terms of Use and Platform 

 

(a) Except where prohibited by applicable law, CBSuper reserves the right to change these Terms of Use at any time without notice.

For example, the Channel Program Agreement may, without limitation, contain: (1) a description of Company’s channel program; (2) payment terms such as the percentage commission; and (3) any other terms and conditions as communicated between User and the Company through this Platform or otherwise.

(c) Channel Program Agreement Commission Dispute. (i) Users will notify Companies (and not us) directly of any disagreement with any Channel Program Agreement Commissions. User acknowledges and agrees that while we may make Channel Program Agreement Commission deposits on behalf of Companies, we are not responsible for any late or incorrect Channel Program Agreement Commissions. (ii) Without limiting Section 8(c)(i), if User disagrees with the transaction costs related to the deposit of any Channel Program Agreement Commission, User will notify us of its disagreement within 15 days of the Commission Deposit Date. If User fails to notify us of any disagreement within such 15 day period, User will be deemed to have irrevocably accepted and agreed with the transaction costs related to such Channel Program Agreement Deposit. 

 

(d) Change to User Payment Accounts. It is User’s responsibility to promptly notify us of any changes to the User Payment Accounts and User acknowledges and agrees that we will not be responsible for any incorrect or delayed payments made to the User Payment Accounts attributable to the information User has provided us in respect of the User Payment Accounts.
