COVID-19 Lockdowns were an attack on small business and personal liberty marketed by mainstream and social media hysteria with government authoritarianism enforcement and domestic terrorism. Texas SBA® is a multi-national trade group representing the Texas business community in 80 countries across 7 continents: Texas SBA® has decades of experience conducting business in 3rd World nations engulfed by political coups, terrorism, economic sanctions, and other situations unfamiliar to the "American Way of Life." Unfortunately, Texas SBA® forecasts a severe economic downturn hitting "Main Street" until 2022 regardless of Wall Street's stock performance generated by 6,200 multi-national corporations. We also anticipate more domestic terrorism with the possibility of civil war caused by government over-reach (ie. COVID-19 Sanctions) or a political coup. Texas Small Business Association® Membership provides your business strength in numbers and guidance on navigating the current economic environment we experiencing in the United States!

4. PAYMENTS.

A. Initial Payment.

Successful processing by Texas SBA® of your payment constitutes acknowledgement of your application to voluntarily participate in the Texas SBA® Business Certification program(s). The successful processing of payment by Texas SBA® Business Certifications,Inc. will serve as entrance into Contract between You and Texas SBA®, and the appearance of credit / debit card charges on Your credit card / debit card statement will serve as Your receipt for the transaction. Payment should be accompanied by the submission of this Agreement to facilitate the initial stages of processing your Application for voluntary participation in the Texas SBA® Business Certification program(s).

In consideration for processing Your application for voluntary participation in the Texas SBA® Business Certification program(s), You agree that all fees paid to and processed by Texas SBA® Business Certifications,Inc. are immediately the property of Texas SBA® Business Certifications,Inc., and are non-refundable, even if You fail to complete the application process or are denied Certification by the Texas SBA® Business Certification program(s).

Applications that fail successful payment processing twice (two (2) times) will be denied future opportunities to electronically apply for voluntary participation in the Texas SBA® Business Certification program(s), unless at least one member of the company Board of Directors provides a written letter.

B. Renewals

This Agreement is automatically renewed on the 365th day. Cancellation must be requested and sent via email to info@texascertificationdirectory.org no less than 30 days prior to the date of renewal to be recognized as valid.

If the participant fails to timely cancel this Agreement prior to the renewal date (no less than 30 days), the participant remains obligated to Texas SBA® for the total amount of the renewal fee. Failure to pay or timely request cancellation will result in the initiation of legal action by Texas SBA® against participant for collection of the owed renewal fees. Participant has fourteen (14) days to honor payment by completing a new online application with valid credit / debit card data and the required supporting documentation. Failure to resolve the owed renewal fee payment within 14 days after email notification is sent by Texas SBA® informing the participant company's point of contact that payment was not received, will entitle Texas SBA® to commence collection and / or other legal recourse procedures as outlined in the Dispute Resolution Section of this Agreement on the 15th day after initial renewal fee payment failure.

If for any reason Texas SBA® is unable to successfully process payment for the renewal fee, Texas SBA® reserves the right to require that You complete a new online application and provide a new and valid payment method in lieu of the automatic annual renewal. The unsuccessful processing of renewal fee payment does not terminate this Contract or your obligation to honor the renewal fee, and will constitute a breach of contract. Such breach of contract entitles Texas SBA® to pursue legal recourse as outlined in Dispute Resolution section of this Agreement to recover the owed renewal fee.

C. "Chargebacks"

"Chargebacks" constitute a breach of this Contract. Any chargeback filed is a direct breach of this Contract and does not nullify the monies owed to Texas SBA® Business Certifications,Inc. You agree that Texas SBA® Business Certifications,Inc., may immediately take legal action against You in response to a chargeback filed by you or in connection with this Agreement to recover the fees paid to Texas SBA®, as well as reasonable legal fees, filing fees, and other associated costs Texas SBA® Business Certifications,Inc., accumulates attempting to recover these fees via legally-binding arbitration administered by American Arbitration Association, in accordance with the Dispute Resolution clause herein.
