This Fee Policy Statement (“Policy Statement”) describes how we, PD&C Financial Services, LLC bill for services and details our policies and procedures as they relate to the provision of services to clients. We believe that we can serve our clients better if they know about our policies at the beginning of our engagement. We make no guarantees as to the interest rates or terms in which credit may be granted to our clients by lenders and other financial institutions. We may, and generally will, apply for credit lines on behalf of our clients at banks and institutions who may report to the credit bureaus. We cannot guarantee that such banks or institutions will not report to our clients’ personal credit or business credit. These decisions and their impact on our clients’ credit either positive or negative are completely out of our control. Our fees are not contingent on our clients’ needs for financing or lack thereof. Accordingly, clients may not cancel, withdraw, and intentionally cause to be denied, or fail to follow through on a credit application unless given permission in writing by us. Additionally, if a client does not provide us with an approval or denial letter from the lender within 30 days of submitting an application for credit, such application will be deemed approved and we will include the requested amount in calculating total credit obtained and fees owed. Once the aggregate credit limit is achieved, fees shall be considered fully earned and non-refundable. We bill our clients automatically using an ACH (Automated Clearing House) or credit card payment authorization or electronic/substitute check provided or approved by the client. All amounts due and owing are billed upon verification of newly established accounts on behalf of the client with the requisite aggregate credit lines. If we are unable to collect fees due for any reason, we will attempt to ACH or electronic/substitute check the clients bank account up to 3 times. Balances unpaid after 3 attempts will accrue interest at an annual rate of 15%, compounded daily. We may suspend or terminate our services if any statement is left unpaid for more than 15 days. All unpaid charges at the expiration or termination of services will become immediately due and payable. Additionally, we may automatically ACH or electronic/substitute check up to $1000 on a client’s bank account for fees associated with accessing his or her credit reports and/or membership to various credit/banking organizations. Upon a client’s failure to pay fees when and as due, we will provide the client with 5 days written notice, at the end of such time we may suspend our services until all fees are paid. Additionally, we may terminate our services if provision of such services would be unlawful or our services have remained suspended for more than 10 days due to failure to pay fees. If we elect to terminate our services, clients will not be entitled to a refund or return of any funds paid to us.
