5. Payment.

If your billing cycle falls on a weekend or holiday, we may charge you the next business day. In the event your payment is returned for insufficient or uncollected funds, you authorize us to resubmit except as otherwise provided by applicable law.

Applicable fees for the Services, if any, must be paid in advance unless the Service offer expressly states otherwise. If You do not have a Payment Account on file with us You must provide us with payment monthly (or other payment period offered by us and chosen by You) in advance. The price of the Services may change over time, and we will charge the prices then in effect for the applicable payment period. You will be notified of any price increase applicable to Services You are paying for, so that You can cancel the Service if You do not wish to pay the higher price. The purchase or lease price of your Vehicle may have included a trial period for some of the Services, or we may otherwise offer You a trial period for some of the Services. If so, those Services will stop automatically without further notice at the end of the trial period, unless You elect to continue the Services and agree to pay the associated fees. If You elect to continue the Services and agree to pay the associated fees, we will automatically charge those fees to the payment method associated with your account according to the terms of your authorization.

15. Service Limitations.
15.1 In the Middle East region, the Services are currently only available in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait and Bahrain. The Services rely on wireless communication networks and the Global Positioning System ("GPS") satellite network. NOT ALL SERVICES ARE AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE, PARTICULARLY IN REMOTE OR ENCLOSED AREAS, OR ON ALL VEHICLES, AT ALL TIMES. The area You are driving in may affect the Services that we can provide to You, including routing services.
15.2 The Services are only available in places where we have retained a Wireless Service Provider for Service in that area and only if the Wireless Service Provider has technical compatibility with the Connected Device, coverage, network capacity, and reception when and where the Service is needed. Services that use location information about your Vehicle only work if GPS satellite signals are unobstructed, available in that place and compatible with your Vehicle systems. Any stolen vehicle assistance services that may be included with the Services are solely intended to provide assistance in notifying You or authorities of potential theft and to potentially aid in vehicle recovery. These Services do not prevent vehicle or vehicle content theft or protect against damage or loss. We are not responsible for any losses or other harm You may incur in connection with vehicle theft.
15.3 YOUR VEHICLE MUST HAVE A WORKING ELECTRICAL SYSTEM (INCLUDING ADEQUATE BATTERY POWER) FOR THE SERVICES TO OPERATE.

15.6 The routing data we provide is based on the most current map information available to us, but the information may be inaccurate or incomplete. For example, the route data may not include information about one-way roads, turn restrictions, construction projects, seasonal roads or new roads. The suggested route may use a road that is closed for construction or a turn that is prohibited by signs at the intersection. Suggested routes also do not consider whether the areas traveled are residential, commercial, or mixed and do not factor in the availability of public or private goods and services. Therefore, You should use good judgment, obey traffic and roadway laws and instructions and evaluate whether following the routing data provided through the Services is safe and legal based on the current conditions.
15.7 We recommend that You carefully read the applicable terms and policies that make up this Agreement, including our Privacy Statement, before using the Services. If You use Third Party Services, You acknowledge that the applicable terms of service made available by that third party is a binding agreement solely between You and that third party, and not between You and us, and that we are acting solely as an intermediary between You and that third party.
