The HR Hotline’s hours for basic support are 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Eastern Standard Time, on weekdays, in the English & Spanish language via telephone, email and chat. Also, while The HR Hotline would like to offer the Service in a manner that accommodates all customers in their native language, this is not practical considering the constant updating we do with our Service, the vast number of languages spoken and read in the world, and the localizations that would be required. The HR Hotline® therefore provides much of its Service in English & Spanish..
4.3 The HR Hotline® shall maintain commercially reasonable administrative, physical, and technical safeguards for protection of the Service, and the security of your Data. The HR Hotline® shall not (a) disclose your Data except as compelled by Applicable Law or as you expressly authorize in writing, or (b) access your Data except to provide the Service and prevent or address service or technical problems, or at your express request in connection with customer support matters.

If payment will be by a method other than a credit card, The HR Hotline will invoice you in advance and in accordance with relevant order form. Invoiced charges are due net 15 days from the invoice date. The HR Hotline will email you a receipt when your card has been charged. If your card cannot be charged, The HR Hotline® will notify you and you will need to update your payment information. In the event you do not update your payment information within 15 days of The HR Hotline’s notice, your access to the Service may be suspended and you will need to update your card information or provide an alternate payment method in order to resume use of the Service. There will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service. Payments made after the 15th of the month will be subject to a 1.5% late fee.
5.2 Your subscription to the Service renews automatically for the same term selected upon initial payment (e.g., monthly, bi-annual, annual, etc.). Annual subscription pricing requires a one-year minimum commitment. If you cancel your full subscription, or your subscription is suspended for nonpayment, before the end of the one-year commitment period, you will no longer qualify for annual subscription pricing and you will be charged the difference between the monthly and annual commitment pricing for the number of months your subscription was active.
5.3 All fees are exclusive of all taxes or duties imposed by governing authorities. Other than sales taxes which The HR Hotline may be required to collect from you and remit to appropriate taxing authorities, you are solely responsible for payment of all such taxes or duties.
5.4 The HR Hotline may at any time, upon notice of at least 90 days, or a longer period if required by Applicable Law, change the price of your subscription or any part thereof, or institute new charges or fees. Price changes and institution of new charges implemented during your annual subscription period will go into effect for any subsequent annual subscription periods and to all new subscribers after the effective date of the change. If you do not agree to any such price changes, then you must cancel your subscription and stop using the Service prior to the commencement of the renewal subscription period for which the price change applies.
5.5 Your subscription fee is based on your employee tier. Should your total number of employees increase such that your headcount will move up to the next tier, your subscription fee will be adjusted accordingly.
