Terms and Conditions of Disinfection Services
These Terms and Conditions of Disinfection Services (these “Terms“) are the only terms which govern the provision of services by Green Cleaned Spaces, LLC (the “Company”), to the party identified (each a “Customer“) on each Agreement for Disinfection Services. These Terms, together with the Agreement for Disinfection Services, (both together, the “Agreement”) comprise the entire agreement between the parties, and supersede all prior or contemporaneous understandings, agreements, negotiations, representations and warranties, and communications, both written and oral. These Terms prevail over any of Customer’s general terms and conditions of purchase regardless of whether or when Customer has submitted its purchase order and regardless of whether such general terms and conditions have been signed by the Company. Fulfillment of Customer’s order does not constitute acceptance of any of Customer’s terms and conditions and does not serve to modify or amend these Terms. The Company may modify or amend these Terms at any time and from time to time, and the version posted to the Company’s website at any time shall govern.
Prices are in U.S. Dollars and are subject to change after the Initial Term.
3. Payment Terms.
Customer shall pay all or one third of the total service fee in advance of the first Application and if financed shall pay the balance in twelve (12) equal monthly installments on the first day of each calendar month.
