Terms of Service
These Web Site Terms and Conditions of Use (“Terms and Conditions”) govern your (“You” or “you”) use of BillTrim, LLC’s Web Site (the “Web
Site”). These Terms and Conditions are subject to change by BillTrim, LLC (“BillTrim”) at any time in its discretion. Your use of the Web
Site after such changes are implemented constitutes your acceptance of the changes. Please consult these Terms and Conditions regularly.
These Terms and Conditions were last updated: March 1st, 2016.
By accessing this web site, you are agreeing to be bound by these Terms and Conditions, all applicable laws and regulations, and agree
that you are responsible for compliance with any applicable laws. If you do not agree with any of these terms, you are prohibited from
using or accessing this site. The materials contained in or accessible within the Web Site, including information and software (the
“Materials”), are protected by applicable intellectual property law, including copyright and trade mark law.
Permission is granted to temporarily download one copy of the Materials on the Web Site for personal, non-commercial transitory viewing
only. This is the grant of a license, not a transfer of title. This license is nonexclusive, non- transferable, limited, and revocable.
Under this license you may not:
- modify or copy the materials;
use the materials for any commercial purpose, or for any public display (commercial or non-commercial);
attempt to decompile or reverse engineer any software contained on the Web Site;
- enter contracts binding upon you;
act in any way necessary to accomplish the goal of obtaining lower rates for your monthly bills subject to any instructions provided in
advance to BillTrim by You in writing.
BillTrim will work to negotiate the best possible rate(s) for the bill(s) you provide to us and on which it agrees to negotiate. Where
BillTrim and its authorized agents cannot reduce your monthly rate(s) there will be absolutely no charge for services. BillTrim cannot
guarantee and does not promise it can obtain lower rates or savings during negotiations on your behalf.
Costs and Billing
BillTrim places a $20 credit card hold (aka pre-authorizing a card) per uploaded bill when a customer submits their credit card. The
hold allows BillTrim to ensure payment will be rendered once negotiation services are completed. This is similar to how the hotel
industry places holds on cards to ensure future payment. BillTrim incurs costs in deploying resources to negotiate bills whether we are
able to lower the bills or not. The customer is charged only after negotiations are completed and only if we are able to lower the
bill(s). The $20 hold per bill allows us to proceed with the negotiations in good faith. The hold is released automatically within next
few minutes. BillTrim is not responsible for any overdraft charges that result from customer going negative in their bank account
If BillTrim and/or its authorized agents cannot obtain lower rates for your monthly bills, there is no cost to you.
If BillTrim or its authorized agents can obtain a lower rate for your monthly bill on an ongoing basis, you agree to pay the total sum
of 25% of your annual savings for the duration of the savings. For e.g. if we get you savings that last 2 years, we assess a fees of 25%
of the two years worth of savings. Savings will be calculated as the difference between the rate of the bill when BillTrim initiates
negotiations with your provider or providers on your behalf or the rate your bill is about to revert to because of an existing promotion
is about to roll off within the next 60 days whichever is higher (“Current Rate”) and the renegotiated rate achieved by BillTrim (“New
Rate”) including any one time credit and or cancellation of late fee. If the Current Rate differs from the rate shown on the bill you
initially submit to BillTrim when you sign up, savings will be calculated from the Current Rate, rather than the bill submitted. Any
discounts previously applied to your bill, but that are no longer in effect when BillTrim initiates negotiation because of a scheduled
increase, the end of a promotion, or any other reasons, will not be included in the Current Rate
At the end of the promotion that BillTrim has secured, if your rate rises because of the end of a promotion or any other reason, and you
would like BillTrim to renegotiate a lower rate for the account again, you will be charged 25% of annual savings thereafter. The savings
will be calculated as the difference between the rate of the bill when BillTrim initiates the second round of negotiations with your
provider or providers on your behalf (“Current Rate”) and the second renegotiated rate achieved by BillTrim (“New Rate”).
BillTrim will send an email or text depicting the final amount owed. The payment is charged to the customer’s credit card on file upon
successful completion of negotiation of any bill. This is a one-time fee per bill unless we re-negotiate it again in the future.
Payment is due within fourteen (14) business days of the invoice date. Failure to make a timely payment may result in a late fee of five
dollars ($5) per month for each month in which your account is in arrears.
If the savings shown on the invoice are not accurate, you must notify BillTrim within thirty (30) days of receiving your BillTrim
invoice. BillTrim will investigate with the service provider and attempt to rectify any mistake. If the mistake cannot be rectified,
BillTrim will adjust your amount due accordingly.
BillTrim reserves the right to turn delinquent accounts over to collection agencies and/or report overdue balances to credit bureaus,
including Experian, TransUnion and Equifax. If BillTrim must engage a collection agency or report your debt to credit bureau(s),
BillTrim may charge a processing fee of $25 or more, subject to the maximum charge allowed by law.
If BillTrim accepts late or partial payments, it does not waive its right to collect all amounts owed under these Terms and Conditions
Cancellation of BillTrim Services
You may discontinue services with BillTrim at any time by notifying BillTrim through electronic mail, phone, or U.S. mail. Cancellation
is effect when the e-mail, call, and/or letter is received by BillTrim. Cancellation does not waive outstanding balances on your
account, and BillTrim reserves the right to request payment in full for services rendered.
BillTrim reserves the right to cancel your account with BillTrim at any time for any reason and request payment in full for services
rendered through the date of cancellation.
